HYPOTHESIS: Internal jugular vein (IJV) compression before blast injury will lead to reduced risk of traumatic hearing injury following exposure to a blast injury. BACKGROUND: IJV compression and its effects on not only intracranial, but also intracochlear pressure may potentiate blast induced hearing injury, therefore, precluding its use as a prophylactic therapy for blast induced traumatic brain injury. METHODS: Twenty Sprague Dawley rats were exposed to a 17...

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is widely used for calcific tendonitis of the shoulder. The initial rationale for this therapy was to break the calcification, but this effect does not always occur. To date, we do not know how calcifications evolve or why they may be less responsive to the action of the shock waves. One hundred and seventy-four shoulders with calcific tendinitis were prospectively evaluated before and after ESWT, using the radiographic classifications according to Gartner and Heyer, to Bosworth and to Molè...

We presented a unique phenomenon of 2:1 cardiac resynchronization therapy pacing due to T wave oversensing. Ultimately, by utilizing a unique feature of integrated bipolar sensing, we succeeded to eliminate the T wave oversensing signals, and restore 1:1 CRTD pacing. Importantly, this feature enabled us to overcome the T wave oversensing issue, without the need to decrease the ventricular sensitivity, which could potentially interfere with ventricular arrhythmia detection and appropriate shock delivery when required...

Shock wave ultrasound therapy techniques, increasingly used for non-invasive surgery, require extremely high pressure amplitudes in precise focal spots, and large high-power transducers arranged on a spherical shell are usually used to achieve that. This solution allows limited steering of the beam around the geometrical focus of the device at the cost of a large number of transducer elements, and the treatment of large and moving organs like the heart is challenging or impossible. This paper validates numerically and experimentally the possibility of using a time reversal cavity (TRC) for the same purpose...

The effects of treatment with shock waves (SW) on osteoblastic cells have already been described. Furthermore, the effects of treatment with SW are also determined by the contextual stimulation of other cell lines, in particular of mesenchymal cells. This is the first experimental study of stimulation of a human mesenchymal stem cell line, taken from bone marrow, using SW (electromagnetic device), with two energy levels. The results showed a significant increase in expression of the main osteoblastic differentiation genes: BMP2, alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, COL1A1, RUNX2...

BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal disorders are regarded as a major cause of worldwide morbidity and disability, and they result in huge costs for national health care systems. Traditional therapies frequently turned out to be poorly effective in treating bone, cartilage, and tendon disorders or joint degeneration. As a consequence, the development of novel biological therapies that can treat more effectively these conditions should be the highest priority in regenerative medicine. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent one of the most promising tools in musculoskeletal tissue regenerative medicine, thanks to their proliferation and differentiation potential and their immunomodulatory and trophic ability...

Haemophilus species are known to colonize the upper respiratory tract and can cause infections. However Haemophilus influenzae has been rarely described as a cause of genitourinary tract infection. We report a 44-year-old nonimmunocompromised Japanese man with bacteremic pyelonephritis caused by a nontypable H. influenzae associated with a left ureteral calculus. The organism was isolated from both blood and urine cultures. Treatment consisted of 14 days of intravenous ceftriaxone and oral amoxicillin one after than other and insertion of a left ureteral stent...
