In cryptorchid boys, failures in germ cell development have been clearly established. Some studies reported some abnormalities in Sertoli cells morphology but the results regarding their endocrine secretion remain controversial. To compare testicular hormone levels in young boys with and without cryptorchidism, we performed a cross-sectional hospital-based study. From surgery appointment records, we identified a case group of boys with unilateral or bilateral cryptorchidism and a control group undergoing dental care, minor osteoarticular or dermal surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical patients requiring an interruption in dual-antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) within 6 months of cardiac stenting are at risk for thrombotic events. Bridging with short-acting intravenous antiplatelet agents has been proposed to minimize the risk of thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of a tirofiban bridging strategy that did not use an initial bolus loading dose. Tirofiban infusions were initiated 24to 48 hours after the last oral antiplatelet dose at a rate of 0...

Using multigroup structural equation modeling in a large sample of online-survey respondents (N = 6,744), the present study examined the reliability and dimensionality of the Male Role Norms Inventory-Short Form (MRNI-SF), a popular measurement of traditional masculinity ideology (TMI), and also tested measurement invariance between individuals that do and do not fit the White heterosexual male TMI reference group. Results indicated that (a) it is appropriate to model the MRNI-SF using either a bifactor or unidimensional model but not a second-order model, (b) the raw MRNI-SF total score is a suitable measure of the general TMI construct, (c) the raw self-reliance through mechanical skills and negativity toward sexual minorities subscale scores may be appropriate measures of their respective specific factors (akin to subscale factors), and (d) SEM or ipsatizing procedures should be used to model the 5 other specific factors, given the insufficient model-based reliability of their raw subscale scores...

BACKGROUND: For the correction of pectus excavatum (PE) deformities in adolescents, adults, and generally in asymmetric cases, a semi-open approach called the MOVARPE (minor open videoendoscopically assisted repair of pectus excavatum) technique is used, consisting of standard pectus bar implantation hybridized with auxiliary sternum osteotomy and multiple chondrotomies. In this study, we report our experiences, discuss pros and cons, and provide technical refinements. METHODS: Between September 2005 and March 2015, 61 patients were selected to undergo the MOVARPE instead of the standard MIRPE (minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum) procedure because of age or specific morphologic characteristics of PE...

BACKGROUND: Most cases of childhood nephrotic syndrome (NS) are due to minimal change disease (MCD), while a minority of children have focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and an unfavorable clinical course, requiring a kidney biopsy to confirm diagnosis. We hypothesized that clinical characteristics at diagnosis and initial response to corticosteroid treatment accurately predict FSGS and can be used to guide consistent practice in the indications for kidney biopsy. METHODS: This was a case control study (1990-2012)...

For many years, there has been a search for a set of biochemical parameters that could facilitate the assessment of severity, prognosis, and administration of early and appropriate treatment in acute pancreatitis. Administration of treatment within the first 48 hours since admission is associated with many problems of distinguishing patients with a mild form of acute pancreatitis (AP) from those with a severe form of acute pancreatitis. STUDY AIM: To assess the relationship between the extent of change in the concentration of 10 selected biochemical indicators: amylase, lipase, total bilirubin, creatinine, uric acid, aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, glucose, magnesium, and iron and histopathological lesions in the pancreas within 2 and 6 hours since induction of AP...

The prelimbic (PrL) cortex constitutes one of the highest levels of cortical hierarchy dedicated to the execution of adaptive behaviors. We have identified a specific local field potential (LFP) pattern generated in the PrL cortex, associated with cognition-related behaviors, and used it to trigger the activation of a visual display on a touch screen as part of an operant conditioning task. Rats learned to increase the presentation rate of the selected theta/beta-gamma transition pattern across training sessions...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic hepatectomy is not a well-established treatment modality for colorectal liver metastases. Moreover, most reports have been limited to tumors in the anterolateral segments (segments 2, 3, 4b, 5, and 6). We evaluated the short- and long-term outcomes after laparoscopic hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases located in all segments, including tumors located in the posterosuperior segments (segments 1, 4a, 7, and 8). METHODS: TThis retrospective study included 102 patients who underwent laparoscopic hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases with radical intent between January 2009 and January 2016...

Acute trauma can lead to life-long changes in susceptibility to psychiatric disease, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Rats given free access to a concentrated glucose solution for 24 hours beginning immediately after trauma failed to show stress-related pathology in the learned helplessness model of PTSD and comorbid major depression. We assessed effective dosing and temporal constraints of the glucose intervention in three experiments. We exposed 120 male Sprague-Dawley rats to 100, 1 mA, 3-15s, inescapable and unpredictable electric tail shocks (over a 110 minute period) or simple restraint in the learned helplessness procedure...
