Failure to thrive (FTT) is a state of overall decline. Patients often present with weight loss, poor appetite, malnutrition, and decreased physical functioning. The etiology is multifactorial including chronic diseases, functional impairments, and acute illnesses. Evaluation for reversible causes is paramount, and treatment is aimed at maintaining or improving functional status. We present a case of a 91-year-old woman with a retroperitoneal mass that was found on workup for failure to thrive.

Data networks are naturally prone to interferences that can corrupt messages, leading to performance degradation or even to critical failure of the corresponding distributed system. To improve resilience of critical systems, time-triggered networks are frequently used, based on communication schedules defined at design-time. These networks offer prompt error detection, but slow error recovery that can only be compensated with bandwidth overprovisioning. On the contrary, the Flexible Time-Triggered (FTT) paradigm uses online traffic scheduling, which enables a compromise between error detection and recovery that can achieve timely recovery with a fraction of the needed bandwidth...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of contralateral full-thickness cuff tears (FTTs) and cuff tear arthropathy (CTA) is presumed to be higher in patients with long-standing cuff tears than in those with newly diagnosed tears, but data are currently lacking. METHODS: Sixty-one patients with 38 partial and 23 full-thickness tears of 1 shoulder at arthroscopy were examined with bilateral radiographs, ultrasound, and the Constant-Murley score at a mean of 22 years (range, 21-25 years) after arthroscopy...

Recent studies showed that fine motor control dysfunction was observed in fibromyalgia (FM) syndrome as well as allodynia. However, brain signatures of this association still remain unclear. In this study, finger tapping task (FTT) and median nerve stimulation (MNS) were applied to both hands of 15 FM patients and healthy controls (HC) to understand this relationship. Hemodynamic activity was measured simultaneously using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Experiments were analyzed separately by using 2x2 repeated measures ANOVA...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Although globally the numbers of children diagnosed with failure to thrive (FTT) have decreased, FTT is still a serious pediatric problem. We aimed to investigate the effects of zinc supplementation for 6 months on growth parameters of infants and children with FTT. SUBJECTS/METHODS: In this retrospective study, of the 114 participants aged between 4 months and 6 years, 89 were included in the zinc supplementation group and were provided with nutrition counseling plus an oral zinc supplement for 6 months...

The effects of a financial transaction tax (FTT) are scientifically disputed, as seemingly small details of its implementation may matter a lot. In this article, we provide experimental evidence on the different effects of an FTT, depending on whether it is implemented as a tax on markets, on residents, or a combination of both. We find that a tax on markets has negative effects on volatility and trading volume, whereas a tax on residents shows none of these undesired effects. Additionally, we observe that individual risk attitude is not related to traders' reaction to the different forms of an FTT...

Background: We examined the associations of surgeon and hospital volume with total cost, length of stay (LOS), and cost per day for free tissue transfer (FTT) surgeries. Evidence demonstrates a higher likelihood of success for FTT in higher volume hospitals. Little, however, is known about volume-outcome associations for surgical costs and LOS. We hypothesized that higher provider volume is associated with lower cost and shorter LOS. Methods: Using Taiwan's national data (2001-2012), we conducted a retrospective cohort study of all adults 18-64 years of age who underwent FTT during the study period...

Francisella tularensis is a potent human pathogen that invades and survives in macrophage and epithelial cells. Two identical proteins, FTT_0924 from F. tularensis subsp. tularensis and FTL_1286 from F. tularensis subsp. holarctica LVS, have previously been identified as playing a role in protection of the bacteria from osmotic shock and its survival in macrophages. FTT_0924 has been shown to localize to the inner membrane, with its C-terminus exposed to the periplasm. Here, crystal structures of the F. novicida homologue FTN_0802, which we call FvfA, in two crystal forms are reported at 1...

Failure to thrive (FTT) is a common symptom leading to hospitalization of children. Most literature describing this population is from 30 years ago. Since that time the hospitalized population has become more medically complex. We aimed to describe children hospitalized for FTT in a tertiary care pediatric hospital. We prospectively collected demographic, anthropometric, evaluation, and outcome data for 92 consecutive children admitted with FTT. The majority of children grew with behavioral interventions alone (primary nonorganic FTT) and had negative evaluation (n = 63)...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to assess the effects of the topical application of tamoxifen on wound healing of burned skin in Wistar rats by evaluating 3 healing characteristics: fibrotic tissue thickness (FTT), scar surface area (SSA), and angiogenesis in the healed scar tissue. METHODS: Eighteen male Wistar rats were used in this study. A third-degree burn wound was made on the shaved animals' back, measuring 2×2×2 cm. In the first group, a 2% tamoxifen ointment was applied to the wound twice daily for 8 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is an abnormal development of the diaphragm leading to high neonatal mortality and morbidity. Beyond the neonatal period, prospective data on overall long-term outcome in CDH survivors is scarce. In particular, for those treated with fetoscopic endoluminal tracheal occlusion (FETO), a promising new technique to increase survival chances for severe cases, the outcomes are even less documented. AIM: To prospectively document the clinical outcome of CDH at 1 year including FETO-treated infants in relation to ante- and postnatal variables...

Autologous breast reconstructions are increasingly being performed. While increased risks for flap loss after free tissue transfer (FTT) in sickle cell patients are known to most plastic surgeons, risks for patients with sickle cell trait (SCT) are less known. Unfortunately, recommendations to prevent complications after FTT in SCT are still scarce. We present additional and novel surgical measures that we took aiming to enhance probabilities for successful FTT in a SCT patient undergoing autologous breast reconstruction...

Evidence suggests individuals less sensitive to fat taste (high fat taste thresholds (FTT)) may be overweight or obese and consume greater amounts of dietary fat than more sensitive individuals. The aims of this study were to assess associations between FTT, anthropometric measurements, fat intake, and liking of fatty foods. FTT was assessed in 69 Australian females (mean age 41.3 (15.6) (SD) years and mean body mass index 26.3 (5.7) kg/m²) by a 3-alternate forced choice methodology and transformed to an ordinal scale (FT rank)...

Frequently left brain damage (LBD) leads to limb apraxia, a disorder that can affect tool-use. Despite its impact on daily life, classical tests examining the pantomime of tool-use and imitation of gestures are seldom applied in clinical practice. The study's aim was to present a diagnostic approach which appears more strongly related to actions in daily life in order to sensitize applicants and patients about the relevance of the disorder before patients are discharged. Two tests were introduced that evaluate actual tool selection and tool-object-application: the Novel Tools (NTT) and the Familiar Tools (FTT) Test (parts of the DILA-S: Diagnostic Instrument for Limb Apraxia - Short Version)...

Timely diagnosis of diencephalic syndrome is not often the case for patients presenting with failure to thrive (FTT) because of its rarity and lack of specific symptoms. Herein, we report two cases of diencephalic syndrome (2-year-old girl and 10-month-old boy) presenting with severe emaciation. Both patients had histories of poor weight gain for months despite having good appetites prior to diagnosis. Initial work-up did not reveal the diagnosis. Horizontal nystagmus was noted in both patients: by a neurologist in the first patient and by a family member in the second patient...

Lipotest(®) is a standardized fat-rich meal designed for use as a test meal during a fat tolerance test (FTT) for the study of postprandial triacylglycerol (TAG) concentrations. Herein we examined the precision and reproducibility of examination using Lipotest(®) on postprandial TAG levels. A total of 26 healthy consenting subjects were examined twice after 8-10 h fasting with an interval of approximately 1 week apart. Blood samples were collected at baseline and 1, 2, 3, and 4 h after consumption of the test meal for measurement of plasma total TAG levels...
