Ciliopathies are disorders caused by ciliary dysfunction and can affect an organ system or tissues. Isolated or syndromic retinal dystrophies are the most common ocular manifestation of ciliopathies. The photoreceptor connecting cilium plays a leading role in these ciliopathy-related retinal dystrophies. Dysfunctional photoreceptor cilia cause the most severe type of retinal dystrophy: Leber's congenital amaurosis (LCA). The most common syndromic ciliopathies with an ocular manifestation are Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) and Usher syndrome...

UNLABELLED: A substantial literature indicates that pain acceptance is a useful behavioral process in chronic pain rehabilitation. Pain acceptance consists of willingness to experience pain and to engage in important activities even in the presence of pain and is often measured using the Chronic Pain Acceptance Questionnaire (CPAQ). Previous traditional cluster analyses of the 20-item CPAQ identified 3 patient clusters that differed across measures of patient functioning in meaningful ways...

Toxic myocardial injury can be misdiagnosed as a myocardial infarction, resulting in the patient undergoing standard treatment for cardiac rehabilitation. However, such inadequate therapeutic strategies can lead to cardiovascular complications including dilated cardiomyopathy. This study presents a case of a 65-year-old man after accidental ingestion of organic solvents (toluene and xylene), whose condition demonstrated all the criteria for diagnosis of myocardial infarction. The qualitative determinations of the above mentioned volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in whole blood were carried out using a headspace sampling by means of gas chromatography...

This study aims to propose a holistic, life cycle assessment (LCA) of urban wastewater systems (UWS) based on a comprehensive inventory including detailed construction and operation of sewer systems and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). For the first time, the inventory of sewers infrastructure construction includes piping materials and aggregates, manholes, connections, civil works and road rehabilitation. The operation stage comprises energy consumption in pumping stations together with air emissions of methane and hydrogen sulphide, and water emissions from sewer leaks...

Illness representations pertain to the ways in which an individual constructs and understands the experience of a health condition. The Brief Illness Perceptions Questionnaire (BIPQ) comprises 9 items intended to capture the key components of the Illness Representations Model. The purpose of this paper was to explore the utility of the BIPQ for evaluating and classifying uncomplicated mechanical neck pain in the rehabilitation setting. A convenience sample of 198 subjects presenting to physiotherapy for neck pain problems were used in this study...

Sleep quality is related to emotional, physical, psychological and cognitive functioning and functional independence in later life. After acute health events, older adults are likely to utilize postacute rehabilitation services to improve functioning and facilitate return to independent living. Patterns of how sleep changes with postacute rehabilitation, and predictors of such patterns, are unknown. The current investigation employed latent class analysis (LCA) methods to classify older adults (n = 233) into groups based on patterns of self-reported sleep quality pre-illness, during postacute rehabilitation and up to 1 year following postacute rehabilitation...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effect of rat myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury on serum Leptin, endothelin (ET), C-reactive protein (CRP) and myocardial Leptin expression, and discuss the role of Leptin in myocardial I/R injury. METHODS: Fifty Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into sham-operation, ischemia and I/R 1, 2, 3 hours groups, with 10 rats in each group. Anterior descending artery of the left coronary artery was ligated for 45 minutes and released for 1, 2 and 3 hours to establish myocardial I/R model, and the said artery of the rats in sham-operation group was not ligated...

BACKGROUND: Chronic whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) have been shown to be associated with motor dysfunction. Increased electromyographic (EMG) activity in neck and shoulder girdle muscles has been demonstrated during different tasks in participants with persistent WAD. Muscle functional magnetic resonance imaging (mfMRI) is an innovative technique to evaluate muscle activity and differential recruitment of deep and superficial muscles following exercise. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the recruitment pattern of deep and superficial neck flexors between patients with WAD and controls using mfMRI...

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation by manual cardiac compression can restore cardiocirculatory function but can also injure patients. Commonly reported are skeletal fractures of the rips and sternum, while injuries to the large thoracic vessels will frequently be lethal. We report the case of a 57-year-old male patient with sudden cardiac arrest because of myocardial ischemia with ventricular fibrillation, successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, associated with an intramural haematoma (IMH) of the descending thoracic aorta treated by endovascular aortic repair...

One of the most important technical demands in ACL surgery is good fixation of the graft. Integrity of the posterior femoral cortex is necessary for Interference screws fixation. The femoral tunnel, placed as posterior as possible, is also mandatory for good graft position and potentially leads to violation of the cortex. The divergence between screw and tunnel could result in perforation of the posterior wall. Without intraoperative x-ray it is difficult to be sure that position of the screw is correct, even with good graft tension...

Brownfields are abandoned, idled, or underused sites whose reuse necessitates some sort of intervention. These sites are largely urban and are frequently contaminated. Brownfield management options can be associated with three types of environmental consequences: those resulting from changes in the site's environmental quality (primary impacts); those resulting from the actual intervention stage (secondary impacts); and, if the vocation of the site changes, those resulting from effects on regional land use (tertiary impacts)...

The arthroscopic examination of every recent haemarthrosis of the knee, even in cases without clinically obvious instability has increased the number of primary diagnosed ruptures of the LCA in the last years. The most frequent lesion of the LCA was the proximal rupture. The usual methods for the operative treatment of the ruptured LCA require the opening of the knee joint and cause the weakening of hamstrings, with all disadvantages connected with these procedures. Basing on the experiences in arthroscopic surgery of meniscal lesions and the good results of alloplastic augmentation an new method of arthroscopic refixation and augmentation of the torn LCA has been developed...
