AIM: To investigate non-ossifying fibromas (NOFs) common fibrous bone lesions in children that occur in bones of the lower extremities. METHODS: We analyzed 44 cases of NOF including 47 lesions, which were referred with a working diagnosis of neoplastic lesions. Lesions were located in the upper extremities (1 proximal humerus, 1 distal radius) and the lower extremities (25 distal femurs, 12 proximal and 4 distal tibias, and 4 proximal fibulas). RESULTS: Three cases had NOFs in multiple anatomical locations (femur and fibula in 1 case, femur and tibia in 2 cases)...

From 2012 to 2015, 16 pregnancies were monitored by ultrasonography in nine tamanduas ( Tamandua tetradactyla ) housed in three zoological facilities. Sonographic measurements were recorded to establish fetal growth curves using thoracic and skull landmarks described for giant anteaters ( Myrmecophaga tridactyla ). All pregnancies resulted in the uncomplicated delivery of healthy offspring, thus gestational development was considered normal. These data may be used as a reference for normal fetal development with potential for estimating parturition date in the absence of breeding data...

Currently, little is known about diseases and health concerns in tenrecs, family Tenrecidae. During the past 10 yr of breeding lesser Madagascar hedgehog tenrecs ( Echinops telfairi ) at a single zoological institution, a diverse range of obstetric and postpartum complications have been observed: pyometra, metritis, retained fetal membranes, retained fetus, perinatal mortality, and maternal neglect with subsequent successful hand-rearing of neonates. Treatment of these problems is complicated in tenrecs because of their small size and secretive behavior...

Strongly correlated materials are now under intense development, and Natural Orbital Functional (NOF) methods seem to be able to capture the physics of these systems. We present a benchmark based on the Hubbard model for a class of commonly used NOF approximations (also known as reduced density matrix functional approximations). Our findings highlight the importance of imposing ensemble N -representability conditions in order to obtain consistent results in systems with either weak or strong electronic correlation, such as the Hubbard system with a varying two-particle interaction parameter...

The giant anteater (Mymercophaga tridactyla) is a highly specialized insectivore for which nutrient requirements are not clearly established, making diet formulation challenging for this species. Multiple clinical reports suggest anteaters have an obligate dietary taurine (TAU) requirement. Sulphur amino acid (SAA) metabolism in adult anteaters was evaluated using noninvasive methods to measure TAU synthesis potential from dietary methionine (MET) and a basal diet containing on a dry matter (DM) basis 1.7 mg TAU/kg DM and 6...

Paul D Miller
Bone densitometry (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry-DXA) is a vital medical tool needed for the diagnosis of osteoporosis in non-fractured patients; predicting future fracture risk; and monitoring bone mineral density (BMD) in untreated or treated patients. The history of the pivotal international society involved in the science and clinical interpretation of DXA, the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) is defined in this manuscript. Since DXA and Osteoporosis management are intimately linked, the ISCD has over the years developed strong bonds with both the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) and the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF)...

Radioiodine imaging of the neck with a pinhole collimator (PinC) is frequently performed in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients for visualizing individual, and a total number of foci (NOF) of functioning residual thyroid tissue (FRTT) within the thyroid bed in postthyroidectomy patients. The objective of this study was to determine our experience regarding the NOF of FRTT visualized on pretherapy radioiodine PinC images. We performed a retrospective review of radioiodine PinC images of the neck of patients with very low-risk DTC and who had thyroidectomy performed by selected surgeons at MedStar Washington Hospital Center...

BACKGROUND: Transvenous lead extraction remains a challenging procedure with inherent risk and associated complications. OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize and evaluate predictors of delayed shock after transvenous lead extraction with no intraprocedural complications. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data of 217 consecutive patients who underwent extraction between 2010 and 2015. The primary end point was sudden onset of shock more than 4 hours after the completion of the procedure...

Outbreaks of Kingella kingae invasive infections have recently been reported in day care centers. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) revealed that although the invasive strains had widespread dissemination in the day care population, less virulent strains were also circulating in the facilities. However, these typing tools are costly, time-consuming, and labor-intensive and provide delayed results. A study was conducted to assess the performance of a rapid and cost-effective genotyping tool targeting the DNA uptake sequence (DUS) in the investigation of outbreaks of K...

BACKGROUND: Neck of femur (NOF) fractures are associated with significant morbidity and mortality in elderly people with multiple co-morbidities; making management of this patient subgroup challenging. Predictors of an increase in morbidity and mortality would therefore provide a useful framework for the assessment and management of this demographic. Within the current literature, hypoalbuminaemia (<35g/dl) has been highlighted as being a good biochemical predictor of short-term mortality (<12 months)...

Supportive-expressive (SE) psychodynamic treatment has been receiving much empirical support. It is based on conceptualizing and working through the patients' Core Conflictual Relationship Theme, which includes their main wish (W) in the context of an interpersonal relationship, an actual or anticipated subjective response from the other (RO) in relation to the W, and the subsequent emotional and behavioral response from the self (RS) to the RO. Studies suggest that the RO and RS components show the greatest change as a result of effective SE treatment...

Bilateral Neck of Femur (NOF) fractures is relatively rare. Surgery, either osteosynthesis or hemireplacement arthroplasty, is the mainstay of treatment. Significant complications are known to occur in such cases. In this case report, we present the functional outcome of a conservatively treated bilateral NOF fracture at one year, in a 93-year-old man. Our patient, a 93-year-old gentleman, sustained right side NOF fracture in May 2014 and left side NOF fracture in May 2015, both after trivial fall. He did not give consent for surgery considering high operative risk...

Spine fracture prevalence is similar in men and women, increasing from <5 % in those <60 to 11 % in those 70-79 and 18 % in those ≥80 years. Prevalence was higher with age, lower bone mineral density (BMD), and in those meeting criteria for spine imaging. Most subjects with spine fractures were unaware of them. INTRODUCTION: Spine fractures have substantial medical significance but are seldom recognized. This study collected contemporary nationally representative spine fracture prevalence data...

The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of densitometric osteoporosis and vertebral fractures in Spanish men aged ≥50 years, and to study how the relationship between them may change depending on how osteoporosis is diagnosed. A community-based population of 1003 men aged ≥50 years was studied. Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by DXA at the lumbar spine, femoral neck and total hip. Vertebral fractures were assessed by lateral thoracic and lumbar spine radiographs. The prevalence of osteoporosis was estimated with both the World Health Organization (WHO) (T-score of <-2...

Ion Mitxelena, Mario Piris
The analytic energy gradients with respect to nuclear motion are derived for the natural orbital functional (NOF) theory. The resulting equations do not require resorting to linear-response theory, so the computation of NOF energy gradients is analogous to gradient calculations at the Hartree-Fock level of theory. The structures of 15 spin-compensated systems, composed of first- and second-row atoms, are optimized employing the conjugate gradient algorithm. As functionals, two orbital-pairing approaches were used, namely, the fifth and sixth Piris NOFs (PNOF5 and PNOF6)...

BACKGROUND: Antihypertensive drugs have been linked to new-onset osteoporotic fracture (NOF), and different classes of antihypertensive drugs may alter the risk for the development of NOF; however, the classic effect of different antihypertensive drugs on the development of NOF in the elderly has not been well studied during long-term follow-up. METHODS: In this study, we investigated the association between different classic antihypertensives and the development of NOF in the elderly...
