INTRODUCTION: Identifying victims in case of mass disasters when only human remains are present is quite a challenging task. Although other peripheral extremities of human body are used in estimating stature, in situations where only skull is available, teeth play an important role in personal identification. The present study used Carrea's index in stature estimation using tooth dimensions. AIM: This study is intended to correlate the anterior mandibular tooth dimensions with that of real stature using Carrea's index and also to know the applicability and validity of this index to the current study population...

The multicellular spheroid model partly mimics tumor microenvironments in vivo and has been reported in plenty of studies regarding radiosensitivity. However, clear isolation of quiescent and proliferating cells in live conditions has been quite difficult owing to technical limitations, and therefore, comprehensive characterization could not be done thus far. In this study, we succeeded in separately isolating the different cell types using a fluorescent ubiquitination-based cell cycle indicator (Fucci) and determining their radiosensitivities...

INTRODUCTION: It is known that the quality of life (QoL) of patients surgically treated for head and neck cancer (HNC) is significantly enhanced by rehabilitation. It is also known that some of these patients will not quit smoking. AIM: To assess if smoking hampers rehabilitation-related QoL enhancement after surgery. METHOD: Applying the H&N 35 questionnaire of EORTC, we assessed the QoL of 38 smoking and non-smoking patients who underwent surgical therapy for HNC and subsequent rehabilitation...

AIMS: The law has struggled to justify the unilateral use of individual genomic data, as it could never quite fit either into the narrower data protection or the broader privacy frameworks. This article aims to explore this tension by examining rights and interests of biobank participants. METHOD: This article offers a legal analysis, by looking at how the biobank model fits into a privacy rights framework. The Hungarian law is the primary focus of analysis, but reference is made to international legal norms, as well...

Meralgia paresthetica (MP) is an entrapment neuropathy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN). There are many variations in the course of the LFCN. A 55-year-old woman presented with pain and tingling sensations on the anterolateral aspect of her left thigh. Physical examination revealed hypoesthesia of the proximal anterolateral thigh on the left side. During the electrodiagnostic study, sensory nerve action potential of the LFCN could not be obtained on both sides. Through those clinical and electrophysiological findings, we prediagnosed the case as MP and planned to perform diagnostic nerve block...

In this study, we develop a nondimensional physical model to demonstrate fluid flow at the micrometer dimension driven by traveling-wave induction electrohydrodynamics (EHD) through direct numerical simulation. In order to realize an enhancement in the pump flow rate as well as a flexible adjustment of anisotropy of flow behavior generated by induction EHD in microchannels, while not adding the risk of causing dielectric breakdown of working solution and material for insulation, a pair of synchronized traveling-wave voltage signals are imposed on double-sided electrode arrays that are mounted on the top and bottom insulating substrate, respectively...

Freezing samples while simultaneously subjecting them to a rapid increase in pressure, which inhibits ice crystal formation, is a reliable method for cryofixing fission yeast. The procedure consists simply of harvesting cells and loading them into a high-pressure freezer (HPF), and then operating the device. If equipment for high-pressure freezing is not available, fission yeast can be frozen by plunging a monolayer of cells into a liquid cryogen, usually ethane or propane. Unlike the HPF, where relatively large volumes of cells can be frozen in a single run, plunge freezing requires cells to be dispersed in a layer <20 µm thick...

A 33-year-old female is presented with the first case to our knowledge of new daily persistent headache (NDPH) with a large right benign non-toxic multinodular goiter causing carotid and vertebral compression with complete resolution of the headache immediately after thyroidectomy. Although this may be quite rare, hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism causing NDPH, migraine, or an exacerbation of pre-existing migraine is not. Clinicians should consider routinely obtaining serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and free T4 in patients with new onset frequent headaches or an exacerbation of prior primary headaches...

In about one quarter of patients with stress-induced takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) concomitant involvement of right ventricle (RV) can be observed. Opposite to this biventricular form of TC, isolated right ventricular takotsubo cardiomyopathy (RVTC) was described only in a few cases and so far has not been listed as a specific type of TC. The authors present a case of a 87-year-old demented female admitted with pneumonia in whom echocardiography revealed RV apical ballooning while the left ventricle function was quite normal...

The mitral isthmus is a part of the postero-inferior area of the lateral left atrial wall located between the mitral annulus and the left inferior pulmonary vein ostium. Linear ablation lesions are created within the mitral isthmus for the invasive treatment of left atrial arrhythmias. However, the anatomy of this region is not fully understood. The aim of this study has been to provide a detailed morphometric description of the mitral isthmus region and to propose another possible isthmus within the investigated heart area that may serve as a potential new ablation target...

An 82-year-old woman had visited her local clinic with a history of abdominal discomfort and dyspepsia related to meals over a period of several months. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a superficial spreading tumor that, on biopsy, was proven to be an adenocarcinoma, and colonoscopy revealed an ascending mass that was found to be an adenocarcinoma on biopsy, so the patient was referred to our hospital. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a mass in the ascending colon with regional lymph node swelling and a gallbladder stone measuring 1...

All living tissues require essential nutrients such as amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, and water. The skeleton requires nutrients for development, maintaining bone mass and density. If the skeletal nutritional requirements are not met, the consequences can be quite severe. In recent years, there has been growing interest in promotion of bone health and inhibition of vascular calcification by Vitamin K2. This vitamin regulates bone remodeling, an important process necessary to maintain adult bone...

BACKGROUND: Tumor-positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy results in a risk of non sentinel node metastases in micro- and macro-metastases ranging from 20 to 50%, respectively. Therefore, most patients underwent unnecessary axillary lymph node dissections. We have previously developed a mathematical model for predicting patient-specific risk of non sentinel node (NSN) metastases based on 2460 patients. The study reports the results of the validation phase where a total of 1945 patients were enrolled, aimed at identifying a tool that gives the possibility to the surgeon to choose intraoperatively whether to perform or not axillary lymph node dissection (ALND)...

Prediction problems in biomedical sciences are generally quite difficult, partially due to incomplete knowledge of how the phenomenon of interest is influenced by the variables and measurements used for prediction, as well as a lack of consensus regarding the ideal predictor(s) for specific problems. In these situations, a powerful approach to improving prediction performance is to construct ensembles that combine the outputs of many individual base predictors, which have been successful for many biomedical prediction tasks...

Sensory and motor neuropathy of the trigeminal nerve due to trauma is quite rare. Furthermore, there have been no detailed reports on occlusal abnormalities and trismus associated with post-traumatic trigeminal motor neuropathy. Here, the authors report a case of trigeminal motor neuropathy and trigeminal sensory neuropathy in all 3 divisions caused by an orbital stab wound. During kendo practice, a 61-year-old man was injured in his right medial canthus with the splinter of a broken bamboo sword. Imaging examinations did not show a brain injury or orbital bone fracture...

Understanding the maintenance of genetic variation remains a central challenge in evolutionary biology. Recent empirical studies suggest the importance of temporally varying selection, as allele frequencies have been found to fluctuate substantially in the wild. However, previous theory suggests that the conditions for the maintenance of genetic variation under temporally fluctuating selection are quite restrictive. Using mathematical models, we demonstrate that maternal genetic effects, whereby maternal genotypes affect offspring phenotypes, can facilitate the maintenance of polymorphism in temporally varying environments...

Modifiable lifestyle factors may reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Obesity is associated particularly with post-menopausal breast cancer. Diet is important, and exercise equivalent to running for up to 8 hours each week reduces the risk of breast cancer, both in its own right and through reducing obesity. Alcohol consumption may be responsible for 5.8% of breast cancers in Australia and it is recommended to reduce this to two standard drinks per day. Drinking alcohol and smoking increases the risk for breast cancer and, therefore, it is important to quit tobacco smoking...
