OBJECTIVE: Peripheral venous reconstruction surgery may be necessary for appropriate oncologic resection; however, the operative approach and surgical outcomes are not well described. We report our experience with these complex reconstructions to identify best practice. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all adult patients who underwent peripheral vein reconstruction for tumor resection at Mayo Clinic, Rochester (2000-2015). Patients were classified into three subgroups by the location: iliac (IL), lower extremity (LE), and upper extremity (UE)...

Leptospirosis is a systemic infection that causes, among others, acute kidney injury, acute liver disease, muscle pain, vasculitis, bleeding disorders, and reproductive loss. In an effort to reduce uterine inflammatory responses induced by Leptospira, we evaluated the anti-inflammation effects of emodin, thymol, and astragalin in a mouse model. Our results showed that treatment with emodin, thymol, and astragalin alleviated uterine inflammation induced by leptospira infection via suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokine expression and prevented tissue damage...

BACKGROUND: In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), cardiovascular risk is associated with paradoxical reductions in total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), and high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C). Concentrations of small LDL (LDL-P) and HDL (HDL-P) particles are also reduced with increased inflammation and disease activity in RA patients. Here we sought to identify which measure(s) of inflammation, disease activity and cardiometabolic risk contribute most to the RA-associated lipoprotein profile...

Loss of articular cartilage from ageing, injury or degenerative disease is commonly associated with inflammation, causing pain and accelerating degradation of the cartilage matrix. Sulphated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are involved in the regulation of immune responses in vivo, and analogous polysaccharides are currently being evaluated for tissue engineering matrices to form a biomimetic environment promoting tissue growth while suppressing inflammatory and catabolic activities. Here, we characterise physical properties of sulphated alginate (S-Alg) gels for use in cartilage engineering scaffolds, and study their anti-inflammatory effects on encapsulated chondrocytes stimulated with IL-1β...

Experiencing early life stress can result in maladjusted stress response via dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and serves as a risk factor for developing chronic pelvic pain disorders. We investigated whether neonatal maternal separation (NMS) would increase susceptibility to experimental colitis or exposure to acute or chronic stress. Male mice underwent NMS from postnatal day 1-21 and as adults were assessed for open field behavior, hindpaw sensitivity, and visceromotor response (VMR) to colorectal distension (CRD)...

Cell-based or magnetic field therapies as alternative approaches to pain management have been tested in several experimental pain models. The aim of this study therefore was to investigate the actions of the cell-based therapy (adipose tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells; ADMSC) or pulsed magnetic field (PMF) therapy and magneto-cell therapy (combination of ADMSC and PMF) in chronic constriction nerve injury model (CCI). The actions of individual ADMSC (route dependent [systemic or local], time-dependent [a day or a week after surgery]), or PMF and their combination (magneto-cell) therapies on hyperalgesia and allodynia were investigated by using thermal plantar test and a dynamic plantar aesthesiometer, respectively...

Neuropathic pain is chronic pain caused by lesions or diseases of the somatosensory system and existing tolerance to currently available analgesics. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been widely studied in the development of neuropathic pain and neuro-inflammation resulting from nerve injury. However, the precise mechanism of miRNAs involved in neuropathic pain remains largely unknown. In the present study, we investigated the vital roles of miR-206 and its putative target gene, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), in neuropathic pain in the rat model of chronic constriction injury (CCI)...

BACKGROUND Neuropathic pain (NPP) arises from a lesion or dysfunction of the somatosensory nervous system. Recent studies have demonstrated multiple microRNAs (miRNAs) play key roles in NPP development. This study aimed to investigate the effects of miR-128 on microglial cells. MATERIAL AND METHODS We established a compressive spinal cord injury (SCI) model and collected the spinal cord segment-derived conditioned medium (CM). We then measured the expression of miR-128 in the murine microglial cell line BV2 treated with CM-SCI or CM obtained from control (CM-NC)...

Woo Young Jang, Soon Hyuck Lee, Il Youp Cho
This article highlights that the long-term and serial follow-up of adolescents with osteoid osteoma should be considered, even after complete excision of the nidus owing to the possibility of the delayed onset or progression of femur head and neck deformities or osteoarthritis. It is important to recognize the sequelae of osteoid osteomas, such as bone edema and new bone formation, which can alter the normal anatomy of the proximal femur. We report two cases of osteoid osteoma in the proximal femur, which showed progressive hypertrophy of the femoral neck after excision of the nidus and subsequent cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), requiring additional osteochondroplasty procedures...
