OBJECTIVES: The aetiology and molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia (SCZ) and paranoid personality disorder (PPD) are not yet clarified. The present study aimed to assess the role of mitochondrial complex I and cell bioenergetic pathways in the aetiology and characteristics of SCZ and PPD. METHODS: mRNA levels of all genomic and mitochondrial genes which encode mitochondrial complex I subunits (44 genes) were assessed in blood in 634 SCZ, 340 PPD patients and 528 non-psychiatric subjects using quantitative real-time PCR, and associated comprehensive psychiatric, neurological and biochemical assessments...

BACKGROUND: The surgical correction of functional mitral regurgitation (MR) remains challenging and controversial. The study aim was to systematically review the outcomes of surgical mitral valve repair (MVRpr) and mitral valve replacement (MVR) in patients with significant functional MR and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. METHODS: A meta-analysis was performed of published data acquired from patients with moderate to severe functional MR and LV ejection fraction (LVEF) <40% who underwent surgical MVRpr or MVR...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for morbid obesity. Furthermore, the proportion of various types of bariatric procedures has significantly changed over the last two decades. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has been increasingly chosen as a primary bariatric procedure in recent years. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to analyze the changing pattern of bariatric surgery utilization from 2010 to 2014. SETTINGS: Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2010 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Several methods for the treatment of colon cancer have been introduced, but none of them are safe and effective. We planned to evaluate the inhibitory effect of protein extract of licorice root on HT-29 and CT26 cell lines proliferation and apoptosis. METHODS: Protein extract of licorice root was prepared in phosphate-buffered solution, and SDS-PAGE was used to isolate its fractions. HT-29, CT-26, and HEK293 cell lines were treated with various concentrations of the fractions and full extract of licorice...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the risk factors for 30-day postdischarge venous thromboembolism (VTE) after bariatric surgery and to identify potential indications for extended pharmacoprophylaxis. BACKGROUND: VTE is among most common causes of death after bariatric surgery. Most VTEs occur after hospital stay; still a few patients receive extended pharmacoprophylaxis postdischarge. METHODS: From American College of Surgeons-National Surgical Quality Improvement Program, we identified 91,963 patients, who underwent elective primary and revisional bariatric surgery between 2007 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Fast track recovery pathways have resulted in a multidisciplinary approach to enhance postoperative recovery. OBJECTIVES: To assess feasibility and outcome of early discharge after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB).

The important role of reperfusion therapies in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction is well documented. However, reperfusion therapies can initiate inflammatory response and may damage the myocardium. The purpose of current study was to compare the effects of percutaneous coronary intervention and thrombolytic therapy on inflammatory markers in the setting of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Eighty three patients with STEMI were enrolled in this study. 40 patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and 43 patients received streptokinase (1...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess long-term metabolic effects of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and to identify predictive factors for long-term diabetes remission and relapse. BACKGROUND: LSG has become the most common bariatric operation worldwide. Its long-term metabolic effects in patients with T2DM are, however, unknown. METHODS: Outcomes of 134 patients with obesity with T2DM who underwent LSG at an academic center during 2005 to 2010 and had at least 5 years of follow-up were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is more effective than medical therapy in treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in patients with severe obesity. However, surgery is often not advocated for patients with T2D who are overweight or have mild obesity.

The aims of the study were to determine prognostic factors for survival and causes of death in a cohort of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). This was a cohort study of SSc patients in single rheumatologic center from January 1998 to August 2012. They fulfilled the American College of Rheumatology classification criteria for SSc or had calcinosis Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly, telangiectasia or sine sclerosis. Causes of death were classified as SSc related and non-SSc related...

PURPOSE: Among the potent anticancer agents, d,l-sulforaphane (SF) is very effective against many different types of cancer cells. Its clinical application is restricted because of its hydrophobicity, low gastrointestinal absorption and poor bioavailability. In the present study, a reliable micellar delivery system using monomethoxypoly (ethylene glycol)-poly (ɛ-caprolactone) (mPEG-PCL) was established. The encapsulation of SF inside mPEG-PCL as a nano-carrier was established and the cytotoxicity assay against human breast cancer cell line was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Surgical training may potentially influence patient care. A safe, high-quality bariatric and metabolic surgery practice requires dedicated and specialized training commonly acquired during a fellowship. This study evaluates the impact of fellow participation on early postoperative outcomes in bariatric surgery. METHODS: From the American College of Surgeons (ACS-NSQIP) database, we identified all obese patients who had undergone primary laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) between 2010 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Previous research suggests that patients on chronic steroids may be at an increased risk of postoperative morbidity after major surgery. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic impact of chronic use of steroid or immunosuppression on 30-day morbidity and mortality rates after primary bariatric surgery.

AIMS: Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is an emerging technology with the potential to treat patients with mitral regurgitation at excessive risk for mitral valve surgery. Geometrical measurements of the mitral valvular complex may have implications for the design of TMVR devices and for patient selection. This study sought to quantify the dynamic geometry of the mitral valvular complex in patients with significant functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) using multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT)...

AIMS: Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is an emerging technology with the potential to treat patients with severe mitral regurgitation at excessive risk for surgical mitral valve surgery. Multimodality imaging of the mitral valvular complex and surrounding structures will be an important component for patient selection for TMVR. Our aim was to describe and evaluate a systematic multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) image analysis methodology that provides measurements relevant for transcatheter mitral valve replacement...

BACKGROUND: Due to the steady increase in patients on chronic dialysis, more of these patients are undergoing elective operations. The literature on safety and postoperative outcomes in dialysis-dependent patients following elective bariatric surgery is scant. We compared the 30-day major morbidity and mortality rates in dialysis-dependent (DD) and non-dependent (ND) patients after primary bariatric surgery. METHODS: From American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program, we identified patients, who underwent primary bariatric surgery between 2005 and 2013...
