Obesity is a risk factor for primary graft dysfunction (PGD), a form of lung injury resulting from ischemia-reperfusion after lung transplantation, but the impact of ischemia-reperfusion on adipose tissue is unknown. We evaluated differential gene expression in thoracic visceral adipose tissue (VAT) before and after lung reperfusion. Total RNA was isolated from thoracic VAT sampled from six subjects enrolled in the Lung Transplant Body Composition study before and after allograft reperfusion and quantified using the Human Gene 2...

Cantu syndrome is an autosomal dominant overgrowth syndrome associated with facial dysmorphism, congenital hypertrichosis, and cardiomegaly. Some affected individuals show bone undermodeling of variable severity. Recent investigations revealed that the disorder is caused by a mutation in ABCC9, encoding a regulatory SUR2 subunit of an ATP-sensitive potassium channel mainly expressed in cardiac and skeletal muscle as well as vascular smooth muscle. We report here on a Japanese family with this syndrome. An affected boy and his father had a novel missense mutation in ABCC9...

Blast exposure is associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI), neuropsychiatric symptoms, and long-term cognitive disability. We examined a case series of postmortem brains from U.S. military veterans exposed to blast and/or concussive injury. We found evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a tau protein-linked neurodegenerative disease, that was similar to the CTE neuropathology observed in young amateur American football players and a professional wrestler with histories of concussive injuries...

Recent data suggest that transitions between the relaxed (R) and tense (T) state of hemoglobin control the reduction of nitrite to nitric oxide (NO) by deoxyhemoglobin. This reaction may play a role in physiologic NO homeostasis and be a novel consideration for the development of the next generation of hemoglobin-based blood oxygen carriers (HBOCs, i.e. artificial blood substitutes). Herein we tested the effects of chemical stabilization of bovine hemoglobin in either the T- (THb) or R-state (RHb) on nitrite-reduction kinetics, NO-gas formation and ability to stimulate NO-dependent signaling...

Primary malignant lymphoma of the uterine cervix is a rare disease. Malignant lymphoma can be clinically and histopathologically misdiagnosed for the infrequent presentation in this are. A case of 56-year-old woman with uterine cervical tumor with infiltration to both parametria is presented. A biopsy was performed and histopathological studies reported a large cell B lymphoma. After the diagnosis CT abdominal, pelvic and thoracic scan was performed and shows infiltration to posterior bladder without evidence of disease in lymph nodes or another organ...

We report on a 16-year-old boy with a distal 1p36 deletion with some clinical features consistent with Cantu syndrome (OMIM#239850). He also has hypercholesterolemia, type II diabetes, recurrent bony fractures, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, not previously described in either condition. The 1p36 deletion was detected in a screen of all chromosome subtelomeres using multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification and was verified using FISH with a region-specific BAC clone. We suggest that patients suspected of having Cantu syndrome, especially those with unusual or more severe manifestations be analyzed for distal 1p36 deletions...

INTRODUCTION: The frequency with which the central nervous system (CNS) is affected by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) varies, according to different series, between 13 and 59%, whereas the brain stem is affected in 5%. CASE REPORTS: Case 1: a 33 year old male who was submitted to a Nissen funduplicature as a treatment of (hypo)incoercible hiccups. The singultus persisted and some time after a paraplegia appeared. Magnetic resonance (MRI) showed images in the medulla oblongata, and in the cervical and thoracic spine...

Because of their high zinc content modern U.S. pennies that become lodged in the esophagus may react with stomach acid thereby damaging the esophageal mucosa. Management of esophageal pennies may therefore differ from that of other esophageal coins making differentiation of pennies from other coins important. We reviewed the records of 111 children who underwent endoscopic esophageal coin removal over a 19-year period to determine the ability of history and size of esophageal coin images on posterior-anterior and lateral chest radiographs alone and in combination to differentiate esophageal pennies from other esophageal coins...

Fifty-three pericardiocentesis procedures were performed on 48 patients from 1993 to 2000 at our coronary care unit. Percutaneous puncture (anterior thoracic in 43 cases, subxiphoid in 10 cases) was performed at the site closest to the exploring probe, where the largest amount of fluid was detected. A needle carrier supported by a bracket with two fixed angulations was mounted on the probe. The needle was advanced through the tissues and inside the pericardial space under continuous visualization. The procedure was successful in 52 of 53 cases...

Cantú syndrome (hypertrichosis, osteochondrodysplasia, cardiomegaly) is a rare condition, previously reported in 13 patients. We report on two additional patients with this disorder. One of the patients had pulmonary hypertension of unknown cause which was responsive to steroid therapy. She also had unusual, deep plantar creases, not reported previously in Cantú syndrome. Autosomal recessive inheritance has been suggested previously on the basis of sib recurrence in one family and consanguinity in another...

We present a family in which five members over three generations have a syndrome characterized by camptodactyly, flattened bodies of cervical vertebrae, and a variable degree of thoracic scoliosis. After excluding other camptodactyly syndromes, it was concluded that this association of anomalies probably represents a new autosomal dominant syndrome.

The Schwartz-Jampel syndrome (SJS) is an autosomal recessive disorder of myotonia, short stature, "mask-like" face, blepharophimosis, stiff joints, spinal malalignment, and pectus carinatum. The authors report on a 10-year-old girl with expressionless face, blepharophimosis, mild thoracic asymmetry, and myotonic electromyographic pattern, but without osteoarticular, spinal, and statural involvement. This appears to be one of the mildest form of SJS described so far. Contiguous genes could be an explanation for this and other atypical cases of SJS...

A retrospective study was done with 325 patients who had preadmission testing prior to ambulatory surgery. At least one laboratory abnormality was noted in 84% of the patients. The serial multiple analysis (SMA)-7 was abnormal 63% of the time. Abnormalities were seen in 54% of the SMA-12 panels and 38% of the urinalyses performed. Twenty-four percent of the patients treated had an abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG). An abnormal chest roentgenogram was found in 19% of the patients. Only three (1%) patients potentially benefited from preadmission testing...
