#1
Vygandas Rutkūnas, Agnė Gečiauskaitė, Darius Jegelevičius, Mantas Vaitiekūnas
AIM: The use of intraoral scanners (IOS) for making digital implant impressions is increasing. However, there is a lack of evidence on the accuracy of IOS compared with conventional techniques. Therefore, the aim of this systematic review was to collect evidence on the accuracy of digital implant impression techniques, as well as to identify the main factors influencing the accuracy outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two reviewers searched electronic databases in November, 2016...

BACKGROUND: Allergy and asthma are closely linked. Inhalation of allergen induces an early allergic response (EAR) within the airways of allergic asthmatic subjects, which is followed by a late allergic response (LAR) in approximately 50% of the subjects. The LAR is defined as a drop in forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1 ) from baseline usually occurring 4-8 h after exposure, and is believed to affect small airways. However, FEV1 is insensitive to changes in small airway physiology...

Osteopontin-c splicing isoform activates ovarian cancer progression features. Imbalanced expression of splicing factors from serine/arginine -rich and heterogeneous ribonucleoproteins families has been correlated with the generation of oncogenic splicing isoforms. Our goal was to investigate whether there is any association between the transcriptional patterns of these splicing factors in ovarian cells and osteopontin-c expression levels. We also aimed to investigate the occurrence of these splicing factors binding sites inside osteopontin exon 4 and adjacent introns...

The aim of this study was to analyse the prevalence and morphometric parameters of idiopathic osteosclerosis (IO) in a Chilean population. IO is an intraosseous growth of compact, benign, unilocular, non-expandable bone that is referred to as an anatomical variation. A cross-sectional study was performed using 1000 digital panoramic radiographs of adults in which data on the location (maxillary/mandibular, right/left hemiarcades), shape, position to the dental apex, and the prevalence of IOs were observed in relation to gender and age...

BACKGROUND: Multiple external ventricular drain (EVD) simulators have been created, yet their cost, bulky size, and nonreusable components limit their accessibility to residency programs. OBJECTIVE: To create and validate an animated EVD simulator that is accessible on a mobile device. METHODS: We developed a mobile-based EVD simulator that is compatible with iOS (Apple Inc., Cupertino, California) and Android-based devices (Google, Mountain View, California) and can be downloaded from the Apple App and Google Play Store...

The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of intravenous (iv) glucocorticoids (GCs) with and without orbital radiotherapy (ORT) in a retrospective analysis of patients with active, moderate-to-severe Graves' orbitopathy (GO). Since diplopia has the strongest impact on quality of life, a careful work up of motility and binocular single vision (BSV) has been performed. The Essen-EUGOGO-Center database (n=3655) was screened for patients with untreated moderate-to-severe, active GO, onset ≤12 months...

Wearable devices are used in various applications to collect information including step information, sleeping cycles, workout statistics, and health related information. Due to the nature and richness of the data collected by such devices, it is important to ensure the security of the collected data. This paper presents a new lightweight authentication scheme suitable for wearable device deployment. The scheme allows a user to mutually authenticate his/her wearable device(s) and the mobile terminal (e.g., Android and iOS device) and establish a session key among these devices (worn and carried by the same user) for secure communication between the wearable device and the mobile terminal...

PURPOSE: To assess the effect of deep inspirations (DIs) on airway behaviour in individuals with classic asthma (CA), cough variant asthma (CVA), and methacholine (MCh)-induced cough but normal airway sensitivity (COUGH) during bronchoprovocation. METHODS: Twenty-five adults (18 female; 44.8±12.3years (Mean±SD); n=9 CA, n=9 CVA, and n=7 COUGH) completed two single-dose MCh challenges, with and without DIs. Bronchoprotection was assessed by comparing changes in bronchoconstriction (FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC, FEF50, FEF25-75), gas trapping (RV, RV/TLC) and impulse oscillometry (IOS) measurements...

The purpose of this study was to analyze the validity, reliability, and accuracy of new wearable and smartphone-based technology for the measurement of barbell velocity in resistance training exercises. To do this, 10 highly trained powerlifters (age = 26.1 ± 3.9 years) performed 11 repetitions with loads ranging 50-100% of the 1-Repetition maximum in the bench-press, full-squat, and hip-thrust exercises while barbell velocity was simultaneously measured using a linear transducer (LT), two Beast wearable devices (one placed on the subjects' wrist -BW-, and the other one directly attached to the barbell -BB-) and the iOS PowerLift app...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Melatonin (MLT), through the interaction with membrane melatonin receptors MT1, can improve the effectiveness of cytostatic agents, including cisplatin (CP). The aim of this study was to examine the synergistic effect of MLT and CP in three cell lines: IOSE 364, SK-OV-3 and OVCAR-3, as well as to assess the role of MT1 receptors in this mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using the SRB assay we investigated the effect of different concentrations of CP and MLT on cell viability...

The Syrian conflict has displaced over 1.2 million Syrians into Lebanon. As a result of displacement, some Syrian families are turning to child marriage as a coping mechanism. The prevalence of early marriage has reportedly increased and the average age of marriage decreased during the crisis. The aim of the project was to understand the underlying factors contributing to child marriage among Syrian refugees in Lebanon using Cognitive Edge's SenseMaker®. This manuscript explores the process of implementing this novel research tool in a humanitarian setting...

BACKGROUND: A concomitant decrease in FEV1 and FVC with normal FEV1/FVC ratio and TLC defines small airways obstructive pattern (SAOP) and constitutes a classic pitfall of pulmonary-function-tests interpretation. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prevalence of flow- (FEV1 increase≥12% and 200 mL), volume- (FVC or inspiratory capacity [IC] increase≥12% and 200 mL), flow and volume-, and non-response to bronchodilation in patients with SAOP. An additional objective was to assess whether impulse oscillometry (IOS) parameters allow the diagnosis of SAOP and its reversibility...

INTRODUCTION: The impulse oscillometry (IOS) indices absolute and relative difference between respiratory resistance at 5 and 20 Hz (R5-20 and R5-20%, respectively) and the area under the reactance curve (AX) are postulated to reflect small airway function. Data on their cutoff values to evaluate bronchodilator responsiveness (BDR) or between-visit changes after interventions are limited in young children. METHODS: We evaluated the BDR of 103 healthy children aged 2-7 years, who received either salbutamol (n = 84) or placebo (n = 19) in order to determine cutoff values for BDR of R5-20, R5-20%, and AX...

Objective: To evaluate the clinical value of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and impulse oscillometry (IOS) in screening out cough variant asthma (CVA) from patients with subacute cough. Methods: Patients with subacute cough were included from the outpatient department of Respiratory Medicine of Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University from May to October in 2016. Based on "the guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of cough (2015 edition)" , patients were classified into CVA group, and non CVP group with other causes of subacute cough...

Objective: To understand the effect of treating obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) on chronic cough in children. Methods: A total of 100 consecutive children with OSAHS diagnosed by polysomnography(PSG) and chronic cough were included in this study. All children underwent cough condition assessment, OSA-18 scales and MS-IOS before and after surgery, and all children were followed-up for 3 months. Children were separated into three groups according to the severity of OSAHS. Related parameters like Zr, Rf, R5, R20, X5, X35, Rc, Rp obtained from MS-IOS, OSA-18 scores and cough scores were compared between different groups using paired t-test or Wilcoxon sum test...
