We report a case of prolonged post-operative stridor in a full-term neonate who was operated for tracheoesophageal fistula. Initial evaluation including an endoscopy and contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan was normal. Repeat endoscopic evaluation under anesthesia revealed tight aryepiglottic folds. Aryepiglottic split was performed and stridor improved dramatically. Tight aryepiglottic folds should be kept in differential diagnosis in a case of postoperative stridor in an infant.

The reactions of the molybdenum alkylidyne complex [MesC[triple bond, length as m-dash]Mo{OCMe(CF3)2}3] (1) with the diaminoacetylenes R2NC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CNR2 (2, NR2 = 4-methylpiperidinyl; 3, NR2 = NEt2; Mes = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) afforded the metallacyclobutadiene (MCBD) complexes 4 and 5. In contrast to all other MCBD complexes, 4 and 5 are paramagnetic and best described as Mo(iv) species containing an anionic diaminodicarbene of the type [(R2N)CC(Mes)C(NR2)](-).

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of clinical Pilates exercises with those of the standard lymphedema exercises on lymphedema developing after breast cancer treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised 60 female patients with a mean age of 53.2±7.7 years who developed lymphedema after having breast cancer treatment. The patients were randomized into two groups: the clinical Pilates exercise group (n=30), and the control group (n=30)...

Background Earlier, digit viability judged the success of digital replantation. Now, utility health-related quality of life (HRQOL) measures can better assess the impact of digital replantation. Methods Overall, 264 digital injury patients were sent a regimen of utility measures: Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score, European Quality of Life 5 Dimensions, visual analog scale (VAS), time trade-off (TTO), and standard gamble (SG). Overall, 51 patients responded completely to all of these-36 replantation patients and 15 revision amputation patients...

Symmetric trans-bis(alkynyl)bis(phosphine) Pt(II) complexes based on the 2-phenylbenzothiazole (pbt) unit [trans-Pt(C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C-pbt)2L2] [L = PPh31, PEt32, 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane (PTA) 3] and the mixed alkynyl-cyanide anionic complex (NBu4)2[trans-Pt(C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C-pbt)2(CN)2] (4) were synthesized. The complexes have been fully characterized including X-ray crystallography for 2 and 4. All complexes display long-lived emission with moderate quantum yields (ϕ 6...

PURPOSE: The main goal of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes of displaced medial epicondyle fractures with or without associated elbow dislocation in children undergoing surgical treatment and to evaluate upper-extremity function with the Quick Disbilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (Quick DASH) questionnaire. The hypothesis was that patients with associated elbow dislocation would have similar functional outcome to patients with displaced fractures with or without intra-articular entrapment of the medial epicondyle...

A genomewide transcriptome assay of two subtropical genotypes of maize was used to observe the expression of genes at seedling stage of drought stress. The number of genes expressed differentially was greater in HKI1532 (a drought tolerant genotype) than in PC3 (a drought sensitive genotype), indicating primary differences at the transcriptional level in stress tolerance. The global coexpression networks of the two genotypes differed significantly with respect to the number of modules and the coexpression pattern within the modules...

Finger fractures are the most common skeletal injuries of the upper limbs. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcomes and complications after surgical management of isolated, closed fractures of the proximal phalanx (PP) of the hand (thumb excluded). Surgical management was indicated in 87 PP fractures. Fractures were reduced and fixed with pins, screws or a plate. Functional outcomes were assessed through the range of motion (ROM) in flexion-extension, hand and finger strength, and the QuickDASH and PRWHE scores...

Kienböck disease is an aseptic osteonecrosis of the lunate, which gradually leads to total carpal collapse. Lichtman's classification relates radiographic evidence of wrist damage to four different stages and supports surgical decision-making. This study pertains to six patients (2 males and 4 females) affected by stage IV Kienböck's disease who underwent proximal row carpectomy and received an RCPI implant. The clinical outcomes consisted of wrist range of motion (ROM), pain on a VAS scale (0-10), the DASH score and the patient's level of satisfaction...

By inserting an acetylene bond into the organic linkers of porous materials, hydrogen storage can be significantly enhanced; however, the mechanism of this enhancement remains elusive. Herein, we developed a new diamond-like carbon allotrope (referred as diamond-like diacetylene a.k.a. DDA) with medium pores constructed by inserting -C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C-C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C- ligands into the -C-C- bonds of diamond. The structural, mechanical, and electrical properties, as well as hydrogen storage capacities were investigated for this novel material using density functional theory and Monte Carlo simulations...

PURPOSE: The dietary determinants of children blood pressure (BP) are poorly understood. We examined the association between adherence to the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH) dietary pattern and BP in healthy Iranian primary school children. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted among a representative sample (n = 407) of healthy Shirazi students aged 6-12 years. Subjects' systolic and diastolic BP were measured by a validated oscillometric BP monitor...

BACKGROUND: Although a model for shared decision-making is important for patient-centered care, decisional conflict can emerge when patients participate in the decision-making. A decision aid is proposed to provide information and to involve patients more comfortably in the decision-making process. We aimed to determine whether a decision aid helps patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) experience less decisional conflict regarding their decision-making for surgery. METHODS: Eighty patients with CTS were randomized into two groups...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to explore the treatment, patient, and impairment-related risk factors associated with upper limb dysfunctions in breast cancer survivors. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in 274 women treated for breast cancer. The following risk factors were analysed by bivariable and multivariable analysis: 1) treatment-related variables (type of surgery, levels of lymph node dissected, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and trastuzumab); 2) patient's related variables (age and Body Mass Index); 3) and finally impairment-related variables such as pain (intensity, quality and pressure hypersensitivity, signs of central sensitisation, the degree of pain catastrophizing and vigilance and awareness to pain), active ROM and upper limb strength were investigated...

OBJECTIVE: Hypertension (HTN) is one of the most important public health problems in the world. Lifestyle modification including dietary changes such as following the Dietary to Stop Hypertension (DASH) plan is the first step to control HTN. The aim of the present study was to identify perceived barriers to following dietary recommendations in hypertensive patients in Zanjan, Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 200 outpatients (161 women, 39 men) with essential HTN (systolic blood pressure [SBP] ≥ 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure [DBP] ≥ 90 mmHg) were recruited from August to November 2012...

The present study attempted sequencing the 18S rRNA gene of Myxoboluscatmrigalae infecting the gill lamellae of carp, Cirrhinusmrigala and compared its genetic homology and phylogenetic characteristics with 18S rRNA genes of other Myxobolus spp. The infected fish had up to 3 small, creamy white plasmodia per gill filament with 30-50 spores each. The spore size was 17.90 ± 0.70 × 7.40 ± 0.40 μm. The sporoplasm contained two large nuclei of size 0.57 ± 0.09 μm and no iodinophilous vacuole. The DNA sequence of M...

BACKGROUND: The 'SMA-first' (P-SMA) pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) allows dissection directly on the right lateral aspect of superior mesenteric artery (SMA) which may decrease circumferential resection margin (CRM) positivity. This comparative study between standard PD (sPD) and P-SMA approach was planned focusing on CRM involvement. METHODS: This was a prospective study comparing consecutive patients with resectable periampullary cancers (PACA) undergoing PD using the standard or P-SMA approach...
