REVIEW
Gunhilde M Buchsbaum, Toy Gee Lee
Importance: Pelvic organ prolapse is a common condition, the prevalence of which is likely to increase with the aging of our population. Also changing are parameters by which outcomes are assessed, shifting toward patient-centered care. Objective: To review vaginal obliterative procedures for surgical treatment of advanced pelvic organ prolapse historically and to discuss evidence on indications for colpocleisis, outcomes, and complications, as well as review pros and cons for concomitant vaginal hysterectomy and anti-incontinence procedures...

Buglossoides arvensis (Ahiflower) oil is a dietary oil rich in stearidonic acid (20% SDA; 18:4 n-3). The present randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial investigated the effects of three Ahiflower oil dosages on omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) content of plasma and mononuclear cells (MCs) and of the highest Ahiflower dosage on stimulated cytokine production in blood. Healthy subjects (n = 88) consumed 9.7 mL per day for 28 days of 100% high oleic sunflower oil (HOSO); 30% Ahiflower oil (Ahi) + 70% HOSO; 60% Ahi + 40% HOSO; and 100% Ahi...

BACKGROUND: Branch pulmonary artery (BPA) stenosis is frequently associated with congenital heart disease. Management of BPA stenosis is challenging for surgeons due to a high rate of recurrence. The purpose of this study was to assess the results of intraoperative pulmonary artery stenting associated with or without surgical angioplasty. METHODS: We included 33 children from our center between January 2008 and July 2014. Patients had pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (13), tetralogy of Fallot (10), troncus arteriosus (4), double outlet right ventricle (2), and single left or right ventricle (4)...

INTRODUCTION: The restoration of normal jaw function, optimal facial aesthetics and long term stability are the goals of any orthognathic surgical procedures. During the last two decades, several cephalometric investigations have been reported on the skeletal changes following maxillary surgical procedures. The stability following LeFort I osteotomy and maxillary superior repositioning of the maxilla has not been studied extensively. AIM: This study was aimed at determining the surgical changes brought about by superior repositioning of the maxilla by Le Fort I osteotomy and evaluate the stability of the surgical procedure one year following surgery...

BACKGROUND: Numerous condylar repositioning methods have been reported. However, most of them are 2-dimensional or are complex procedures that require a longer operation time and a highly trained surgeon. This study aims to introduce a new technique using a condylar repositioning plate and a centric relation splint to achieve a centric relationship. METHODS: We evaluated 387 patients who had undergone surgery for skeletal jaw deformities. During the operation, a centric relation splint, intermediate splint, final centric occlusion splint, and condylar repositioning plate along with an L-type mini-plate for LeFort I osteotomy or a bicortical screw for bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy were utilized for rigid fixation...

OBJECTIVE: Infections are the major cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Improving microbiological diagnosis in these patients is of paramount clinical importance. METHODS: We performed this multicentre, blinded, prospective, proof-of-concept study, to compare untargeted next-generation sequencing with conventional microbiological methods for first-line diagnosis of infection in 101 immunocompromised adults. Patients were followed for 30 days and their blood samples, and in some cases nasopharyngeal swabs and/or biological fluids, were analysed...

Nurses in neurosurgical departments play a critical role as they are involved in the first stages of the care pathway of patients with glioblastoma. Indeed, surgery enables a definitive histopathological diagnosis to be established and the size of the tumour to be significantly reduced, thereby improving the prognosis.

Rapid neutrophil recruitment is critical for the efficient clearance of bacterial pathogens from the lungs. While β2 integrins and their activation are required for neutrophil recruitment from postcapillary venules of the systemic circulation into inflamed tissues, the involvement of integrins in neutrophil recruitment in response to respiratory infection varies between bacterial pathogens. For stimuli eliciting β2 integrin-dependent neutrophil influx, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, it remains unclear whether the activation of β2 integrins is an essential step in this process...

Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure is a new treatment option for the prevention of stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF). Conventional 2-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D TEE) has some limitations in the imaging assessment of LAA closure. Real-time 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT-3D TEE) allows for detailed morphologic assessment of the LAA. In this study, we aim to determine the clinical values of RT-3D TEE in the periprocedure of LAA closure.Thirty-eight persistent or paroxysmal AF patients with indications for LAA closure were enrolled in this study...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of physical therapy for smile improvement on the smile esthetics-related properties after orthognathic surgery. The samples consisted of 44 adult patients (13 males and 31 females; mean age of 22.6 years old), who had undergone LeFort I osteotomy and BSSRO by a single surgeon. After a video clip of smile education was shown to patients (see Supplemental Digital Content, Video, http://links.lww.com/SCS/A238), smile training of 5 minutes per day was started 1-month after surgery for 3 months...

The confinement of liquid mixtures in porous channels provides new insight into fluid ordering at the nanoscale. In this study, we address a phenomenon of microphase separation, which appears as a novel fascinating confinement effect for fully miscible binary liquids. We investigate the structure of tert-butanol-toluene mixtures confined in the straight and mono-dispersed cylindrical nanochannels of SBA-15 mesoporous silicates (D = 8.3 nm). Small angle neutron scattering experiments on samples with carefully designed isotopic compositions are performed to systematically vary the scattering length density of the different compounds and assess the radial concentration profile of the confined phases...

AIM: This novel multiparameter Phase I study aimed to optimize doses/dosing schedules of everolimus and sorafenib drug combination, based on modeling/simulation (NCT01932177). PATIENTS & METHODS: About 26 patients with solid tumors were treated in four different dosing schedules. Everolimus once daily + sorafenib twice daily were given continuously in arms A and B, and intermittently in arms C (alternating every other week) and D (everolimus continuous and sorafenib 3 days on/4 days off)...

A problem of community-acquired Staphylococcus aureus skin infections emerged in the French armed forces in 2004, in a malaria-endemic areas. The high incidence rate led us to evaluate military staff practices. This was a cross-sectional survey of doctors and nurses deployed as officers in French Guyana since 2006. The definition of skin and soft-tissue infection came from the criteria for epidemiological surveillance of the armed forces. We studied the management of antibiotic therapy and its related difficulties...

Vocal fold motion was analyzed during free breathing using two-dimensional dynamic ultrasound imaging. Two cadavers were first analyzed to define easily identifiable landmarks. Motion of the laryngeal tract was then analyzed in an axial plane. Left and right arytenoids and thyroid cartilage were defined on images corresponding to abduction and adduction of the laryngeal tract. Associated area measurements were established for 50 healthy subjects. All area indices were significantly larger during abduction than adduction...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Obliterative procedures for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse have been reported to have a recurrence rate up to 10%. We present (1) a case report of a patient with prolapse after LeFort colpocleisis and how it was managed in our department, and (2) a review of the literature regarding the types of recurrence after LeFort colpocleisis, their rate and their treatment. METHODS: A 77-year-old woman was treated in our department for recurrence of prolapse through the right lateral channel 6 months after LeFort colpocleisis...
