Paper focuses on biomechanics, specifically on locking cortical bone screws in angularly stable plates used for the treatment of bone fractures in the medical fields of traumatology and orthopaedics. During extraction of titanium-alloy implants, problems are encountered in an effort to loosen some locking bone screws from the locking holes of an angularly stable plate and the subsequent stripping of the internal hexagon of the screw head. The self-locking of the screw-plate threaded joint was verified by calculation and the effect of the angle of the thread on the head of the locking cortical bone screw on self-locking was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chest pain, elevated troponin, and unobstructed coronary disease present a clinical dilemma. The purpose of this study was to investigate the incremental diagnostic value of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in a cohort of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and unobstructed coronary arteries. RESULTS: Data files of patients meeting the inclusion criteria in two cardiology centres were searched and analysed. The inclusion criteria included: 1) thoracic pain suspected with ACS; 2) a significant increase in the high-sensitive Troponin T value; 3) ECG changes; 4) coronary arteries without any significant stenosis; 5) a CMR examination included in the diagnostic process; 6) an uncertain diagnosis before the CMR exam; and 7) the absence of known CMR and contrast media contraindications...

BACKGROUND: While indirect calorimetry (IC) is the gold standard used to calculate specific calorie needs in the critically ill, predictive equations are frequently utilized at many institutions for various reasons. Prior studies suggest these equations frequently misjudge actual resting energy expenditure (REE) in medical and mixed intensive care unit (ICU) patients; however, their utility for surgical ICU (SICU) patients has not been fully evaluated. Therefore, the objective of this study was to compare the REE measured by IC with REE calculated using specific calorie goals or predictive equations for nutritional support in ventilated adult SICU patients...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common genetic cardiomyopathy in our population. The diagnosis of this disease is based on imaging methods, mainly echocardiography. Cardiac magnetic resonance offers more accurate and detailed information about the disease than echocardiography. Development of this method has become a standard part of the diagnostic algorithm. In the first part of review, the authors analyze the potential and significance of cardiac magnetic resonance in the diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy...

Enterococci are widespread bacteria forming the third largest genus among lactic acid bacteria. Some possess probiotic properties or they can produce beneficial proteinaceous antimicrobial substances called enterocins. On the other hand, some enterococci produce biogenic amines (BAs), so this study is focused on the sensitivity to enterocins of biogenic amine-producing faecal enterococci from ostriches and pheasants. Altogether, 60 enterococci isolated from faeces of ostriches and pheasants were tested for production of BAs...

Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) and febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD) are considered different manifestations of the same disease. Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease is a rare, and potentially lethal illness which is characterized by fast progression of numerous papules that converge, ulcerate and form a plaque with a necrotic center, together with hemorrhagic vesicles and pustules that are associated with high fever and variable systemic symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD) is a rare fulminant variant of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) characterized by a rapidly progressive course with predominant ulceronecrotic lesions associated with fever and systemic manifestations. First described by Degos in 1966, it carries a high morbidity and is potentially fatal. The exact pathogenesis is not clear, but it is proposed to be the result of hypersensitivity reaction to an infection...

Pityriasis lichenoides is an uncommon, acquired, idiopathic, self-limiting skin disease that poses a challenge to patients and clinicians to diagnose and treat. Several variants exist including pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC), and febrile ulcer-onecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease. Precise classification can be difficult due to an overlap of clinical and histologic features. In this case report we describe a patient with a rare presentation of PLC exhibiting bilateral palmoplantar involvement and mimicking psoriasis...

Febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease (FUMHD), a severe form of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA), featuring large, ulcerative, necrotic skin plaques, high fever, and other systemic symptoms, is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. No randomized controlled trials have established treatment guidelines and multiple modalities are often employed, making it difficult to assess the efficacy of any single agent. We report two cases of this condition in which treatment with methotrexate plus antibiotic treatment for superinfection led to rapid improvement...

Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA) is an inflammatory skin disease that is unknown to pediatricians. The ulceronecrotic febrile form is a rare and potentially lethal variant. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy with a papulovesicular eruption lasting for 4 weeks, secondarily associated with ulcers and necrotic crusts, fever, and systemic signs. After exploring infectious causes such as chickenpox, we discussed and confirmed PLEVA with histological analysis. Systemic steroids and methotrexate improved the symptoms...

AIMS: We sought to identify biochemical predictors that indicate susceptibility to in-stent restenosis (ISR) after coronary artery bare-metal stenting. METHODS: A total of 111 consecutive patients with post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in-stent restenosis of a target lesion within 12 months were matched for age, sex, vessel diameter, and diabetes with 111 controls without post-PCI ISR. Plasma or serum levels of biochemical markers were measured: matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) 2, 3, 9; myeloperoxidase (MPO); asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA); lipoprotein (a) (Lp[a]); apolipoproteins E and D (ApoE and D); and lecitin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT)...

Reactive lymphoid infiltrates of the skin composed predominantly of gamma-delta (γδ) T cells are not well described in the literature. Herein we report a case of an otherwise healthy 4-year-old male who presented with a waxing and waning papular rash characterized by small, discrete crusted papules spread across his trunk, face and extremities. Clinical evaluation revealed no evidence of systemic disease. Microscopic examination revealed a dermal, perivascular infiltrate of highly atypical lymphocytes with a γδ T cell phenotype, worrisome for primary cutaneous γδ T cell lymphoma...

INTRODUCTION: Pityriasis lichenoides is a benign inflammatory disease of unknown etiology. There are two types of this condition: an acute form (PLEVA = pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta) and a chronic one (PLC = pityriasis lichenoid chronica). Both are more common in children and young adults. OBJECTIVE: To describe a case of PLC, discuss its clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment and present a review of the literature. CASE REPORT: A seven-year-old child who presented with recurrent oligosymptomatic episodes of bright erythematous papular lesions in centripetal distribution, which subsided and left behind hypopigmented macules...
