AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the ethnic difference in fetal behavior between Asian and Caucasian populations. METHODS: Fetal behavior was assesed by Kurjak's antenatal neurodevelopmental test (KANET) using four-dimensional (4D) ultrasound between 28 and 38 weeks of gestation. Eighty-nine Japanese (representative of Asians) and seventy-eight Croatian (representative of Caucasians) pregnant women were studied. The total value of KANET score and values of each parameter (eight parameters) were compared...

INTRODUCTION: The foot and ankle in rheumatoid arthritis undergo highly destructive synovitis with loss of muscle strength. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the muscle strength of ankles in patients with rheumatoid arthritis based on isokinetic dynamometry parameters. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty patients with a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis involving the ankle(s) and 30 healthy subjects (control group) matched for age, gender, race, body mass index and lower limb dominance were studied...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evalute the effects of mitomycin-C, sodium hyaluronate and human amniotic fluid on preventing spinal epidural fibrosis. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: The role of scar tissue in pain formation is not exactly known, but it is reported that scar tissue causes adhesions between anatomic structures. Intensive fibrotic tissue compresses on anatomic structures and increases the sensitivity of the nerve root for recurrent herniation and lateral spinal stenosis via limiting movements of the root...

The selection of antipsychotics as medications used primarily for treating schizophrenia and disorders similar to schizophrenia is an important aspect of the treatment of forensicpatients. This study examines the effect of antipsychotics selection (typical or atipycal) on the level of aggressiveness, side effects and the hospitalisation length. The research is conducted on 98 psychiatric patients diagnosed with schizophrenia or similar disorders (F 20-F 29) in two forensic psychiatric institutions. The patients committed aggressive criminal offence in state of insanity...

BACKGROUND: Human ether à go-go-1 (EAG1) potassium channels are potential tools for cancer diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a likely mechanism by which tumor cells become malignant. We wondered whether EAG1 is regulated in human lung tumor cells undergoing EMT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: EMT was induced in A549 lung tumor cells with transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ1). EAG1 gene expression was assesed by real-time RT-PCR and protein expression by flow cytometry...

BACKGROUND: Depending on the indication, and the age of a patient, class II division I malocclusion can be treated by a fixed or mobile orthodontic appliance, with or without teeth extraction. CASE REPORT: A treatment of a male patient, 15 years old, with dentoalveolar class II division I was described. On the base of clinical findings, study case analysis, analysis of orthopan and profile cephalogram, there were class II division I with protrusion of frontal teeth and mild crowding in lower jaw assesed...

Material and methods. The retrospective analysis results of palliative radiotherapy alone or combined with surgery of 200 patients with bone metastases are presented. All patient were irradiatated, 47 of them were operated before or after radiotherapy. General performance status, pain relief, movement efficiency, analgetic drugs and bisphosphonates administration, disease progress and bone reossification were assesed 1, 2, 3, 6, 12 months after the treatment and durning the last examination.<br /> Results...

Equinus deformity of the foot presents a great number of difficulties to ambulant patients with cerebral palsy. Non-operative treatment of the incorrectible - fixed equinus is not successful. Many procedures are applied to treat it operatively, so its not clear which procedure at what age is the most successful. The purpose of this manuscript. is to clarify the issue. The results of four procedures are analyzed: aponeurectomny of m. gastrocnemius, Achilles tendon lengthening by z-plasty, a combination of these two procedures and sliding elongation of m...

INTRODUCTION: High dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy is considered one of the most advanced treatment technologies currently available for treatment of localized prostate cancer. It gives the advantage of applying higher dose radiation, with greater precision, directly to the tumor while sparing healthy tissue and surrounding organs, thereby resulting in fewer side effects. In this facility, the treatment requires an overnight stay in the hospital, in a supine position, with a perineal template sutured to the perineum to prevent catheter movement or dislodgement...

BACKGROUND: Statins inhibit 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase), the rate-limiting enzyme of the mevalonate pathway, and have been used successfully in the treatment of hypercholesterolaemia. Animal models have provided evidence for the teratogenic effects of statins on pregnancy outcome. Thus statins are contraindicated during pregnancy. However, conflicting data are available from inadvertent use of statins in human pregnancy. Therefore we decided to explore the effects of simvastatin on the placenta in an in vitro human placental model...

Genetic manipulation of the 5-HT system leads to alterations of 5-HT neurotransmission and provides new opportunities to investigate the role of 5-HT in sleep regulations. Indeed, it represents an alternative to the use of pharmacological tools and, to some extent, of localized lesions of the 5-HT system, which have been, from the 1960s until recently, the main approaches to investigate this question. Homologous recombination knocking-out genes encoding various proteins involved in 5-HT neurotransmission in the mouse has recently allowed further assesment of the role of the serotonin transporter (5-HTT), the monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A), and the 5-HT1A, 5-HT1B and 5-HT2A receptors in the regulation of sleep...

The therapeutic method of distalization of the first upper molars by external traction has been considerably extended in recent years. Some failures are, however, encountered. The cause is lack of space. The author elaborated a method which helps to assess the future spatial possibilities in the molar region. The distance between the distal margin of the first upper molar from the normal from the posterior margin of the maxilla on the bispinal plane is assesed: +6:M. Point "M" is the most posterior point on the anterior border of the fissura pterygopalatina...

The authors present a new equipment for orthopaedic assesment of club-foot. This "dynamic splint" aims to produce a self-correction of the deformity by the infant at time of each movement of his lower limb. With regard to 72 such deformities, concerning 47 children, they record the results after an average follow-up of more than 2 years. Criterions of results, clinical and chiefly radiological, more objectives, are classified into 3 parts : correction of varus of the foot, correction of adduction of the hind-foot, correction of equinus...
