BACKGROUND: The incidence of infection due to Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) and subsequent economic burden are substantial. GOALS: The impact of changing practice patterns on demographics at risk and utilization of health care resources for recurrence of CDI remains unclear. STUDY: A total of 291,163 patients hospitalized for CDI were identified from 1995 to 2014 from the New York SPARCS database. The χ test, the Welch t test, and multivariable logistic regression analysis were performed to evaluate factors related to readmission...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) outcomes in elderly patients with different type of urinary diversion (UD), ileal conduit (IC) and ileal orthotopic neobladder (IONB), after radical cystectomy (RC) for bladder cancer, by using validated self-reported cancer-specific instruments. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 77 patients who received an IC or an IONB after RC. HR-QoL was assessed with specific and validated disease questionnaires, administered at last follow-up...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Studies comparing health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) between patients who underwent radical cystectomy (RC) and those who underwent a different form of urinary diversion has not reached yet univocal and reliable conclusions. The aim of our study was to evaluate bladder-specific long-term HR-QoL after radical cystectomy and ileal conduit. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A multicenter study was carried out on 145 consecutive patients (112 males and 33 females) undergoing RC and ileal conduit (IC)...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of our study was to investigate surgical outcomes following advanced colorectal procedures at academic versus community institutions. METHODS: The SPARCS database was used to identify patients undergoing Abdominoperineal resection (APR) and Low Anterior Resection between 2009 and 2014. Linear mixed models and generalized linear mixed models were used to compare outcomes. Laparoscopic versus open procedures, surgery type, volume status, and stoma formation between academic and community facilities were compared...

Various reports suggest that the pitch height of musical tones may be represented along a mental space, with lower pitch heights represented on the left or lower sectors and higher pitch heights represented on the right or upper sectors of the mental space. Given that in Western languages the loudness of tones is often addressed spatially, with loud sounds referred to as "high" and quiet sounds referred to as "low," here we investigated whether loudness might also have a spatial representation...

Stem cell therapy is considered a promising approach in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) seem to be the most effective in ALS animal models. The umbilical cord (UC) is a source of highly proliferating fetal MSCs, more easily collectable than other MSCs. Recently we demonstrated that human (h) UC-MSCs, double labeled with fluorescent nanoparticles and Hoechst-33258 and transplanted intracerebroventricularly (ICV) into SOD1G93A transgenic mice, partially migrated into the spinal cord after a single injection...

BACKGROUND: Nodular melanoma (NM) accounts for most thick melanomas and because of their frequent association with ulceration, fast growth rate and high mitotic rate, contribute substantially to melanoma-related mortality. In a multicentric series of 214 primary melanomas including 96 NM and 118 superficial spreading melanoma (SSM), histopathological features were examined with the aim to identify clinicopathological predictors of recurrence. METHODS: All consecutive cases of histopathologically diagnosed primary invasive SSM and NM during the period 2005-2010, were retrieved from the 12 participating Italian Melanoma Intergroup (IMI) centers...

INTRODUCTION: There is a growing debate regarding outcomes following complex hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) procedures. The purpose of our study is to examine if facility type has any impact on complications, readmission rates, emergency department (ED) visit rates, and length of stay (LOS) for patients undergoing HPB surgery. METHODS: The SPARCS administrative database was used to identify patients undergoing complex HPB procedures between 2012 and 2014 in New York...

INTRODUCTION: Biliary colic is a common diagnosis for patients presenting to the emergency department (ED). The purpose of this study is to examine the outcomes of patients coming to the ED with biliary colic. METHODS: The NYS longitudinal SPARCS database was used to identify patients presenting to the ED with biliary colic from 2005 to 2014. Through the use of a unique identifier, patients were followed in NYS across multiple institutions. Patients who were lost to follow-up, with duplicated records, and those that underwent percutaneous cholecystectomy tubes were excluded from the analysis...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

BACKGROUND: Several studies have found that musicians perform better than nonmusicians in memory tasks, but this is not always the case, and the strength of this apparent advantage is unknown. Here, we conducted a meta-analysis with the aim of clarifying whether musicians perform better than nonmusicians in memory tasks. METHODS: Education Source; PEP (WEB)-Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing; Psychology and Behavioral Science (EBSCO); PsycINFO (Ovid); PubMed; ScienceDirect-AllBooks Content (Elsevier API); SCOPUS (Elsevier API); SocINDEX with Full Text (EBSCO) and Google Scholar were searched for eligible studies...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the short-term results with Argus-T sling in patients with post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 182 patients with PPI were treated with Argus-T sling at 5 urologic centers from June 2008 to March 2013. The preoperative evaluation included medical history, pad count (1-2 pads: mild PPI; 3-5 pads: moderate PPI; >5 pads: severe PPI), visual analog scale on continence, quality of life score scale, physical examination, cystoscopy, and urodynamic evaluation...

INTRODUCTION: Although perforated marginal ulcers (pMU) following Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) represent a surgical emergency, the epidemiology and outcome of this condition is not well understood. The purpose of this study was to evaluate incidence of pMU following RYGB and assess the natural history of this complication. METHODS: The SPARCS administrative database was used to identify patients undergoing RYGB between 2005 and 2010. With the use of a unique identifier, we followed patients up to 2014 for subsequent admission and re-intervention (repair or revision) for perforated MU...

This paper describes a simple, rapid and accurate label-free immunosensor for the determination of MC-LR in water samples. The anti-MC-LR was immobilized in a hybrid nanocomposite, comprised of exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets dispersed in a suspension of silver nanoparticles (AgNP-Nafion-xGnP), by adsorption. The nanomaterial obtained was then employed to prepare an immunosensor using a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) in one-step. Under optimized conditions, using square-wave voltammetry (SWV) and an incubation time of 10min, the immunosensor showed a linear relationship between the oxidation current and MC-LR concentration in the range of 0...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the indications for and incidence of both emergency department (ED) visits and hospital readmissions within the first postoperative year. We also sought to identify the rate of reoperation within the first 3 years following a SG operation in New York State (NYS). METHODS: The SPARCS database was examined for all SGs performed between 2011 and 2013. Using a unique identifier, patients were followed for at least 1 year...

One of the main hurdles in nanomedicine is the low stability of drug-nanocarrier complexes as well as the drug delivery efficiency in the region-of-interest. Here, we describe the use of the film-forming protein hydrophobin HFBII to organize dodecanethiol-protected gold nanoparticles (NPs) into well-defined supraparticles (SPs). The obtained SPs are exceptionally stable in vivo and efficiently encapsulate hydrophobic drug molecules. The HFBII film prevents massive release of the encapsulated drug, which, instead, is activated by selective SP disassembly triggered intracellularly by glutathione reduction of the protein film...

BACKGROUND: The previous popularity of adjustable gastric banding (AGB), along with inconsistent long-term results, has resulted in the need for conversion to other procedures. The perioperative safety of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and gastric bypass (RYGB) as single-stage conversion procedures is unclear. OBJECTIVES: To compare the early safety of SG and RYGB when performed as single-stage conversion procedures at the time of AGB removal. SETTING: Nationwide analysis of accredited centers...
