BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolism chemoprophylaxis with warfarin is common after total joint arthroplasty. Early response to warfarin initiation has been theorized to engender a transient increase in the risk of venous thromboembolism. We hypothesized that a rapid rise in the international normalized ratio is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism after total joint arthroplasty. METHODS: This study was a retrospective analysis of Medicare patients undergoing elective total joint arthroplasty who were given nomogram-dosed warfarin for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis...

A 53-year-old man presented with smooth-domed, variegated cysts (polycystic disease) of all 4 eyelids, worse on the left side. Some of the cysts were clear, while others were creamy-white colored. In addition, multiple, very fine vesicopapules were noted along the eyelid margins. Histopathologic examination revealed a trichilemmal cyst, several pure apocrine hidrocystomas displaying multiple chambers, a hybrid cyst, and many small eccrine cysts of the deep dermis. The apocrine lesions, including the small ones at the eyelid margins, predominated...

CONTEXT: We sought to describe our experience with the Hybrid Assistive Limb® (HAL®) for active knee extension and voluntary ambulation with remaining muscle activity in a patient with complete paraplegia after spinal cord injury. FINDINGS: A 30-year-old man with complete paraplegia used the HAL® for 1 month (10 sessions) using his remaining muscle activity, including hip flexor and upper limb activity. Electromyography was used to evaluate muscle activity of the gluteus maximus, tensor fascia lata, quadriceps femoris, and hamstring muscles in synchronization with the Vicon motion capture system...

REVIEW
Teerin Liewluck, Margherita Milone
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD) are a group of genetically heterogeneous, autosomal inherited muscular dystrophies with childhood-to-adult onset, manifesting with hip and shoulder girdle muscle weakness. When the term LGMD was first conceptualized in 1954, it was thought to be a single entity. Currently, there are 8 autosomal dominant (LGMD1A-1H) and 26 autosomal recessive (LGMD2A-2Z) variants according to the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man database. In addition, there are other genetically-identified muscular dystrophies with a LGMD phenotype not yet classified as LGMD...

Haemoglobin Video Imaging (HVI) demonstrates conjunctival and episcleral blood flow in man with the resolution of a single erythrocyte. A new method for establishing vessel hierarchy in micro-circulations is described, which recognises either delivery or drainage vessels and references vessel order to the capillary. These tools have been used to characterise blood flow.Anterior ciliary arteries show pulsatile variation in diameter. The episcleral arterial circle that they supply has functional apices with pulsatile flow reversal...

A 55 years old man self-presented to our Emergency Department (ED) reporting an attempted suicide by cutting the left forearm veins and ingesting approximately 200 mL of an herbicide (Myrtos®, containing 36% of glyphosate as isopropylamine salt). Laboratory tests showed metabolic acidosis. Hydration with normal saline and alkalinization with sodium bicarbonate was started according to suggestion of the poison control center, since an antidote was unavailable. Cardiorespiratory condition gradually worsened, so that non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) was applied and infusion of fluids was established...

The endoscopic inaccessibility of the gastric remnant after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) for morbid obesity represents an important issue for patients with familiar history of gastric cancer (GC) or affected by premalignant lesions, such as intestinal metaplasia. If a different bariatric procedure is contraindicated, RYGBP with remnant gastrectomy represents a reasonable alternative, significantly reducing the risk of GC but potentially increasing postoperative morbidity. For this reason, only few cases have been reported in the recent Literature and none regarding a super-super obese patient...

Piet Borgdorff
Cortical spreading depression (CSD) is a wave of increased electrocortical activity and vasodilation, followed by sustained decreased activity and prolonged vasoconstriction. Although the discovery of CSD has been ascribed to Leão, rather than vasoconstriction, he only observed a depression of neural activity combined with vasodilation, with much weaker stimulation than used by his followers. There is a longstanding belief that CSD underlies migraine aura, with its positive symptoms such as mosaic patterns and its negative symptoms such as scotoma, and a similar propagation speed and vasoreaction pattern...

Coronary artery dissection and intramural hematoma after blunt chest trauma are rare, but life-threatening, complications. Coronary intramural hematoma extension is even rarer. A 31-year-old man was transferred to our hospital for worsening left chest pain during while he was admitted at a nearby hospital due to blunt chest trauma. Bedside echocardiography showed akinesis of the left ventricular apex and anterior wall as well as hypokinesis of the mid-to-basal anteroseptal wall and mid-to-basal lateral and posterior walls of the left ventricle...

Miniaturized bionic compound eyes featured with multi-aperture imaging have potential applications in the areas of micro opto-electro-mechanical-system (MOEMS). In this manuscript, we present a novel structure of the bionic compound eye with multiple focal lengths consists of an array of individual lenses with 1000 μm diameter. The simulation results of the designed MBCE with two focal lengths of 190 mm and 44.4 mm demonstrate excellent two-order focusing abilities. Moving mask exposure technology was used to fabricate the designed MBCE with the corresponding imaging experiments conducted to validate the two-order imaging ability of the fabricated MBCE...

Although cerebral syphilitic gummas are generally considered to be rare manifestations of tertiary syphilis, many reports exist of early cerebral syphilitic gumma. Our finding of cerebral syphilitic gumma in an HIV-negative man within 5 months after syphilis infection suggests that this condition should be considered in syphilis patients who have neurologic symptoms.

A 69-year-old man came to our emergency department with nausea, vomiting and upper abdominal pain under the suspicion of an ileus. Four weeks before he had had an elective aortic valve replacement. The basal thoracic slides of the abdominal CT-scan revealed a significant amount of pericardial effusion, after which the patient was referred for emergency cardiac surgery. Abdominal complaints are rarely the primary symptoms of severe heart failure.

Biomaterials with excellent osteogenic and angiogenic activities are desirable to repair massive bone defects. Decellularized matrix from porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) has attracted particular attention for tissue regeneration because it has strong angiogenic effects and retains plentiful bioactive components. However, it has inferior osteoinductivity and osteoconductivity. In this study, we developed porous composite of SIS combined with mesoporous bioactive glass (SIS/MBG) with the goal of improving the mechanical and biological properties...

We report the case of a 38-year-old man who was bitten several times during his life by a tick. He didn't report any previous history of anaphylaxis after the ingestion of red meat. The serum specific IgE showed positivity to α-Gal. The proximity of the bits didn't increase the titer of IgE antibodies to alpha-gal. We could hypothesize that the frequency of the exposure to the tick Corresponding author bites and the amount of tick bites during his lifetime induced a sort of tolerance in this patient.

AIM: It is generally accepted that hyperuricemia is commonly associated with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). However, variations in ethnicity, diet and habitat may contribute to differences in prevalence and risk factors for hyperuricemia in PsA patients. Moreover, Asian specific data is deficient. The primary objective of the present study was to determine the prevalence of hyperuricemia among PsA patients. The secondary objective was to explore its associated risk factors. METHODS: This was a multi-center, cross-sectional observational study of 160 PsA patients from local Rheumatology clinics...
