Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Epidemiological studies using high-sensitivity assays for serum C-reactive protein have shown a consistent association between cardiovascular disease risk and serum C-reactive protein concentrations. C-reactive protein is a biomarker for inflammation, and has been established in clinical practice as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease events. There is evidence that serum C-reactive protein is an excellent biomarker of cardiovascular disease and is also an independent and strong predictor of adverse cardiovascular events...

Disorders of the brain can exhibit considerable epidemiological comorbidity and often share symptoms, provoking debate about their etiologic overlap. We quantified the genetic sharing of 25 brain disorders from genome-wide association studies of 265,218 patients and 784,643 control participants and assessed their relationship to 17 phenotypes from 1,191,588 individuals. Psychiatric disorders share common variant risk, whereas neurological disorders appear more distinct from one another and from the psychiatric disorders...

PURPOSE: We aim to design two sampling methods, the grid and sectoral methods, to provide more precise detection of focal corneal scar changes with time following pterygium excision with the Pentacam imaging system. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of our previous prospective observational case series. Thirty patients underwent primary pterygium excision with adjuvant topical mitomycin-C application were followed up and imaged with Pentacam system at postoperative weeks 1, 4, 12 and month 18...

A parasitic twin represents a rare developmental anomaly in which an asymmetrical, nonviable conjoined twin is attached to the host body at the time of birth. Rachipagus is among the rarest of conjoined twin subtypes and typically features a parasitic twin mass attached at the spine. Herein, the authors review the literature and describe the case of a 9-month-old girl presenting with a rachipagus parasitic twin consisting of a fully developed set of lower extremities originating from the midline upper back...

PURPOSE: To assess the changes in the ABCD keratoconus staging system 6 months after intracorneal ring segment implantation. METHODS: Fifty eyes of 50 patients with keratoconus who were implanted with the Keraring (Mediphacos, Belo Horizonte, Brazil) using the femtosecond laser were assessed. Preoperative and postoperative assessments included determination of distance uncorrected visual acuity and distance corrected visual acuity (DCVA), refraction, and Scheimpflug tomography with the Pentacam HR...

PURPOSE: To assess the diagnostic capability of corneal shape and biomechanical parameters for distinguishing normal eyes from frank keratoconus (KCN). METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of eyes of 137 control subjects and 145 patients with KCN, with one of their eyes randomly selected as the study eye. Corneal biomechanical parameters were assessed using the Corvis ST (Oculus Optikgeräte GmbH) and Oculus Response Analyzer (Reichert Ophthalmic Instruments)...

We review behavioural and neural evidence for the processing of information contained in conspecific vocalizations (CVs) in three primate species: humans, macaques and marmosets. We focus on abilities that are present and ecologically relevant in all three species: the detection and sensitivity to CVs; and the processing of identity cues in CVs. Current evidence, although fragmentary, supports the notion of a "voice patch system" in the primate brain analogous to the face patch system of visual cortex: a series of discrete, interconnected cortical areas supporting increasingly abstract representations of the vocal input...

PURPOSE: The risk of graft failure after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions with hamstring or patellar tendon was evaluated in a French population of athletes. METHODS: Athletes who had undergone ACL autograft reconstruction and who received rehabilitation care at the European Center for Sports Rehabilitation (CERS; Capbreton, France) were screened for this prospective cohort study. Eligibility criteria included a simple hamstring autograft or patellar tendon autograft surgical technique...

Whether emotions carried by voice and music are processed by the brain using similar mechanisms has long been investigated. Yet neuroimaging studies do not provide a clear picture, mainly due to lack of control over stimuli. Here, we report a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study using comparable stimulus material in the voice and music domains-the Montreal Affective Voices and the Musical Emotional Bursts-which include nonverbal short bursts of happiness, fear, sadness, and neutral expressions...

Complex traits, including migraine, often aggregate in families, but the underlying genetic architecture behind this is not well understood. The aggregation could be explained by rare, penetrant variants that segregate according to Mendelian inheritance or by the sufficient polygenic accumulation of common variants, each with an individually small effect, or a combination of the two hypotheses. In 8,319 individuals across 1,589 migraine families, we calculated migraine polygenic risk scores (PRS) and found a significantly higher common variant burden in familial cases (n = 5,317, OR = 1...

Mucormycosis is an invasive mold infection, frequently fatal in immunocompromised patients. We report the case of a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia admitted to the hematology unit for febrile aplasia. Pulmonary lesions suggesting a fungal infection expanded/increased despite a combination of posaconazole and liposomal amphotericin B. The fungal biomarkers performed repeatedly were negative. At D65 after chemotherapy a bronchial biopsy was positive for Cunninghamella bertholletiae. The patient died despite appropriate antifungal management...

CONTEXT: Thyroid nodules with cytological indeterminate results represent a daily and recurrent issue for patient management. OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of our study was to determine if TIRADS (Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System) could be used to stratify the malignancy risk of these nodules and to help in their clinical management. Secondary objective was to estimate if this risk stratification would change after reclassification of encapsulated non-invasive follicular variant of papillary carcinomas (FVPTC) as non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm (NIFTP)...

This review describes the evolution of the diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus from the earliest written description to present day. The first description was provided in 1736 by Benedict Duddell who described the prominent corneas of a fourteen-year-old boy. Throughout the 19th century, a variety of surgical procedures were proposed to manage the disease, such as surgically repositioning the pupil away from the cone, iris incarceration to produce a slit-like pupil, cauterization of the cone to produce a scar, and full thickness elliptical excision of the cone...

In phase II oncology trials, the use of new cytostatic drugs raises some questions regarding the endpoint. Time-to-event endpoints such as Progression-Free Survival have been recommended and led to new designs. In 2003, Case and Morgan proposed a design based on the comparison of the cumulative hazards at a clinically relevant timepoint. In 2013, Kwak proposed a design based on the one-sample log-rank test. If all the patients are followed from their entry time to the analysis date, the Kwak and Jung's design leads to a smaller sample size as compared to the Case-Morgan's design...

Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Objective: To determine whether a low-density (LD) screw construct can achieve curve correction similar to a high-density (HD) construct in adolescent scoliosis. Methods: Patients treated operatively for idiopathic scoliosis between 2007 and 2011 were identified through a database review. A consistent LD screw construct was used. Radiographic assessment included percent correction of major and fractional lumbar curves, T5-T12 kyphosis, and angle of lowest instrumented vertebra (LIV)...

PURPOSE: To determine the 3 years late toxicity among patients with non-metastatic breast cancer who received concurrent bevacizumab and locoregional radiotherapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a single-arm, multicentre, prospective study, of the toxicity of adjuvant concomitant association of bevacizumab and radiotherapy in patients with breast cancer.
