BACKGROUND: Among a variety of complex factors affecting a decision to take family medicine as a future specialisation, this study focused on demographic characteristics and assessed empathic attitudes in final year medical students. METHODS: A convenience sampling method was employed in two consecutive academic years of final year medical students at the Faculty of Medicine in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in May 2014 and May 2015. A modified version of the 16-item Jefferson Scale of Empathy - Student Version (JSE-S) was administered to examine self-reported empathic attitudes...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) has been proved to be effective and safe for esophageal submucosal tumors (SMTs) originating from the muscularis propria (MP) layer. This study was aimed to further evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and influencing factors especially the types of mucosal incision of STER in a larger population. METHODS: A total of 89 patients undergoing STER with esophageal SMTs were retrospectively enrolled in this study from May 2012 to November 2016...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Most submucosal tumors (SMTs) in the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) are irregularly shaped and different from those in the esophagus, where submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) has been proven effective and safe. However, few reports paid attention to STER for SMTs in the EGJ. The aim of the study was not only to evaluate the effect of STER in patients with SMTs in the EGJ but to analyze the risk factors for failure of en bloc resection. METHODS: A consecutive of 47 patients with SMTs originating from the muscularis propria (MP) layer in the EGJ underwent STER were retrospectively included between September 2012 and December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Preparticipation screening for cardiovascular disease in young athletes with electrocardiography is endorsed by the European Society of Cardiology and several major sporting organizations. One of the concerns of the ECG as a screening test in young athletes relates to the potential for variation in interpretation. We investigated the degree of variation in ECG interpretation in athletes and its financial impact among cardiologists of differing experience. METHODS AND RESULTS: Eight cardiologists (4 with experience in screening athletes) each reported 400 ECGs of consecutively screened young athletes according to the 2010 European Society of Cardiology recommendations, Seattle criteria, and refined criteria...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the security and efficacy of a new endoscopic closure method of large defects after endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR) double purse-string suture using two endoloops and metallic clips via single-channel endoscopy. METHODS: Clinical data of 23 cases with submucosal tumors (SMT) who received endoscopic resection from June 2015 to July 2016 in our National Cancer Center were collected. For gastric and esophageal SMTs or the mucosa layer injured during submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER), double purse-string suture was conducted after EFTR...

The prolonged use of injectable agents in a regimen for the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is recommended by the World Health Organization, despite its association with ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity. We undertook this study to look at the relative adverse effects of capreomycin and amikacin. We reviewed the case notes of 100 consecutive patients treated at four MDR-TB treatment centers in the United Kingdom. The median total duration of treatment with an injectable agent was 178 days (interquartile range [IQR], 109 to 192 days; n = 73) for those with MDR-TB, 179 days (IQR, 104 to 192 days; n = 12) for those with MDR-TB plus fluoroquinolone resistance, and 558 days (IQR, 324 to 735 days; n = 8) for those with extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB)...

The incidence of metabolic and infectious diseases varies greatly during the lactation cycle. Most new cases of clinical mastitis appear at the beginning of lactation, and the incidence increases with the level of milk production. In addition to mastitis, many other infectious diseases become clinically apparent during the first 2weeks of lactation. During this time, cows are in a negative energy balance and must mobilize body reserves to balance the deficit between food energy intake and energy required for milk production...

Background and purpose - The operative treatment of hip fractures in Norway has changed considerably during the last decade. We used data in the Norwegian Hip Fracture Register to investigate possible effects of these changes on reoperations and 1-year mortality. Patients and methods - 72,741 femoral neck (FFN) fractures and trochanteric fractures in patients 60 years or older were analyzed. The fractures were divided into 5 time periods (2005-2006, 2007-2008, 2009-2010, 2011-2012, 2013-2014). Cox regression models were used to calculate unadjusted and adjusted (age group, sex, and ASA class) relative risks (RRs) of reoperation and of 1-year mortality in the different time periods...

OBJECTIVE: Traditional patient monitoring during surgery includes heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP) and peripheral oxygen saturation. However, their use as predictors for central hypovolemia is limited, which may lead to cerebral hypoperfusion. The aim of this study was to develop a monitoring model that can indicate a decrease in central blood volume (CBV) at an early stage. APPROACH: Twenty-eight healthy subjects (aged 18-50 years) were included. Lower body negative pressure (-50 mmHg) was applied to induce central hypovolemia until the onset of pre-syncope...

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are mandatory dimers playing important roles in regulating CNS function. Although assumed to form exclusive homodimers, 16 possible heterodimeric mGluRs have been proposed but their existence in native cells remains elusive. Here, we set up two assays to specifically identify the pharmacological properties of rat mGlu heterodimers composed of mGlu2 and 4 subunits. We used either a heterodimer-specific conformational LRET-based biosensor or a system that guarantees the cell surface targeting of the heterodimer only...

Background and study aims Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection with double opening (DO-STER) was developed by our group for the resection of submucosal tumors in the esophagus and gastric fundus near the cardia. This study aimed to provide a preliminary evaluation of feasibility and safety of DO-STER. Methods The key to DO-STER is the creation of a tunnel opening in the mucosa over the inferior border of the tumor. During resection, the tumor can be gradually pushed out of the submucosal tunnel through the opening, leaving enough space for operation within the tunnel...

This paper reports on the investigation of experimental conditions relevant for spontaneous precipitation of significant amount of pure calcium oxalate dihydrate (COD). For this purpose, the hydrodynamic and thermodynamic parameters, such as mode of agitation, temperature, supersaturation and concentration of additives (citrate ions), have been studied. The results show that in the model systems, without the citrate addition and applied mechanical stirring, calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM) was observed as dominant modification after 20 min of aging, while the magnetic stirring resulted in a formation of a mixture of COM and calcium oxalate trihydrate (COT), regardless of the temperature applied...

Despite their complex evolutionary history and the rich fossil record, the higher level phylogeny and historical biogeography of living turtles have not been investigated in a comprehensive and statistical framework. To tackle these issues, we assembled a large molecular dataset, maximizing both taxonomic and gene sampling. As different models provide alternative biogeographical scenarios, we have explicitly tested such hypotheses in order to reconstruct a robust biogeographical history of Testudines. We scanned publicly available databases for nucleotide sequences and composed a dataset comprising 13 loci for 294 living species of Testudines, which accounts for all living genera and 85% of their extant species diversity...

Staphylococcus aureus is one of the major pathogens causing bovine intramammary infections (IMIs) and mastitis. Mastitis is the primary cause for the use of antibiotics in dairy farms but therapeutic failure is often observed. One of the reasons for the lack of effectiveness of antibiotic therapy despite the observed susceptibility of bacterial isolates in vitro are bacterial biofilms. In this study, we used chitosan of well-defined molecular weight (0.4-0.6, 1.3, 2.6 and 4.0 kDa) and investigated their antibiofilm and antibacterial activities in in vitro and in vivo models related to S...
