Although colorectal cancer (CRC) is largely preventable through identification of pre-cancerous polyps through various screening modalities, morbidity and mortality rates remain a challenge, especially in African-American, Latino, low-income and uninsured/underinsured patients. Barriers to screening include cost, access to health care facilities, lack of recommendation to screen, and psychosocial factors such as embarrassment, fear of the test, anxiety about testing preparation and fear of a cancer diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Two main techniques are adopted to perform partial nephrectomy in children: laparoscopy and retroperitoneoscopy. The aim of this paper is to review the larger multicentric experience recently published by our group to review indications, techniques and results of both approaches. METHODS: Data of 102 patients underwent partial nephrectomy in a 5-year period using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures were analyzed. Fifty-two children underwent laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN), and 50 children underwent retroperitoneoscopic partial nephrectomy (RPN)...

Plane of nutrition effects on body, tissue and cellular growth in the neonatal calf are poorly understood. The hypothesis that a low plane of nutrition (LPN) would limit skeletal muscle size by reducing fibre growth and muscle progenitor cell activity was tested. At birth, calves were randomly assigned to either a LPN (20% CP, 20% fat; GE=1.9 Mcal/days) or a high plane of nutrition (HPN; 27% CP, 10% fat, GE = 3.8 Mcal/days) in a 2 × 3 factorial design to test the impact of diet on neonatal calf growth, organ weight and skeletal muscle morphometry with time...

PURPOSE: Saving warm ischemia time (WIT) in laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) is important. We have designed a new device, a remotely activated bulldog clamp, to facilitate LPN. In present study, the effectiveness, convenience, and safety of the new design device were compared with that of standard bulldog vascular clamp in a pig model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen cases of LPN were bilaterally operated on upper or lower pole of kidneys in five pigs. As the test group, eight cases involved the remotely activated bulldog clamp, whereas the remaining seven cases, as the control group, involved the common standard vascular bulldog clamp...

When the lesser palatine nerve (LPN) is supposed to be a branch of the trigeminal nerve and innervate sensation of the soft palate, whether the LPN contains motor fibers is unclear. In this study, we monitored the electromyogram of the levator veli palatini (LVP) muscle on stimulating the LPN during palatoplasty in 3 patients. The electromyogram of the muscles showed the myogenic potential induced by electrostimulation of the LPN. Taken together with the finding from our previous anatomical study that the motor fibers come from the facial nerve, this result supports the double innervation theory of the LVP, which posits that both the pharyngeal plexus and the facial nerve innervate it...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The time of onset of postoperative upper limb palsy (ULP), also referred to as C5 palsy, varies among patients. Although some studies addressed the relationship between the time of onset of ULP and the potential etiologies, no meta-analysis has been conducted regarding the association between the time of onset of ULP and other factors such as surgical procedure type and treated diseases. PURPOSE: This study aimed to elucidate differences in the time of onset of ULP among spinal surgical procedures and treated diseases to understand its etiology...

BACKGROUND: The current study objective was to compare blood platelet indices in late preterm newborns (LPN) and full term newborns (FTN). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We recruited 58 LPN and 71 FTN. Platelet indices were estimated in blood samples collected from the umbilical artery. RESULTS: LPN demonstrated a decreased count of blood platelets (249 × 10³/μL) as compared to FTN (295 × 10³/μL), p < 0.001. Platelet hematocrit (PCT) also showed substantial differences in both groups (LPN = 0...

Solid lipid-polymer hybrid nanocarrier (LPN) was previously reported to achieve high siRNA transfection efficiency and induce sustained RNAi-based chemosensitizing effect at cellular level. In this study, our objectives are to evaluate the in vivo biodistribution of LPNs in a prostate cancer model and determine the factors that potentially affect tumor penetration by LPNs. The LPN formulation with the highest transfection efficiency (64%) and stability was selected for the study. Mice bearing tumors of PC-3M cells were treated with LPNs labeled with IR780 or AF647-siRNA...

BACKGROUND: The proportion of registered nurses (RNs) with employment in health-related positions before their initial RN education has increased in the past two decades. Previous research found that prior health-related employment is positively associated with RN workforce supply, potentially due to the wage differences based on different career paths. This study's objective is to test the hypotheses that prior health-related employment is associated with differences in starting wages and with different rates of wage growth for experience as an RN...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) remains challenging in endophytic and complex kidney tumors as the clear understanding of tumor location and spreading depends on a precise analysis of available imaging. The purpose of this study was to investigate navigated kidney surgery using intraoperative cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images in conjunction with a previously proposed method for augmented reality (AR) guidance for safe LPN. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The concept proposed is based on using an intraoperative CBCT scan for (1) marker-based AR guidance for fast and reliable tumor access and (2) enhancement of real-time fluoroscopy images for accurate tumor resection...

BACKGROUND: Multiple factors can account for surgical complexity during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN); severe adhesion of perirenal fat (PRF) is a crucial one. Consequent renal decapsulation can deem renorrhaphy a very challenging task. We propose a novel technique (synthetic renal capsule tailoring [SYRCT]) to facilitate renorrhaphy in decapsulated kidneys and suggest early decapsulation as a safe option in cases with severe PRF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed perioperative results of this novel technique performed in cases with severe PRF...
