OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to compare the results of David procedure through conventional or minimally invasive approach. METHODS: A propensity-matched comparison in patients undergoing a minimally invasive (partial upper sternotomy, n = 103) or complete sternotomy (n = 103) David procedure from 1991 to 2016 was performed. Patients were 57 ± 14 years old on average in both groups. The David technique was modified by generating a neosinus (P < 0...

AIM: To assess turnover intention among experienced nurses and explore the effects of work environment, job characteristics and work engagement on turnover intention. BACKGROUND: The nursing shortage is an urgent concern in China. A high turnover rate of experienced nurses could have serious effects on the quality of care, costs and the efficiency of hospitals. It is crucial to explore the predictors of turnover intention and develop strategies tailored to experienced nurses...

AIMS: We examined the effects of perceived supervisor support, value congruence and hospital nurse staffing on nurses' job satisfaction through the satisfaction of the three psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness. Then, we examined the links between job satisfaction and quality of care as well as turnover intentions from the workplace. BACKGROUND: There is growing interest in the relationships between work factors and nurses' job satisfaction...

We conducted an investigation of Borrelia miyamotoi infections in humans and ticks in northeastern China. Of 984 patients reporting recent tick bites, 14 (1.4%) were found to be infected with B. miyamotoi by PCR and genomic sequencing. The 14 patients had nonspecific febrile manifestations, including fever, headache, anorexia, asthenia, and arthralgia. Rash, eschar, and regional lymphadenopathy were each observed in 1 patient. Four (28.6%) patients were hospitalized because of severe disease. B. miyamotoi was detected in 3...

BACKGROUND: Sorafenib, a multi-kinase inhibitor, is approved for the treatment of patients with radioactive iodine (RAI)-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). In this study, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of sorafenib in real-world clinical practice and compared the results with those of the DECISION trial. We also evaluated the clinical features associated with better clinical outcomes after sorafenib treatment. METHODS: This multicenter, retrospective cohort study evaluated 98 patients with progressive RAI-refractory DTC who were treated with sorafenib in six tertiary hospitals in Korea...

REVIEW
Georges Nasrallah, Fouad G Souki
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Laparoscopic kidney surgery is commonly used for living donor, partial, and total tumor nephrectomy. The successful emergence of laparoscopic technique was justified by the many benefits offered such as reduced blood loss, tissue trauma, pain, and hospital stay. However, this comes at the expense of physiologic changes and complications secondary to pneumoperitoneum, surgical technique, and patient positioning with significant challenges in anesthetic management. RECENT FINDINGS: A variety of laparoscopic approaches (transperitoneal, retroperitoneal, hand-assisted, robotic) are used with some having advantages over others...

BACKGROUND: Providing supplemental oxygen is fundamental in the management of mechanically ventilated patients. Increasing amounts of data show worse clinical outcomes associated with hyperoxia. However, these previous data in the critically ill have not focused on outcomes associated with brief hyperoxia exposure immediately after endotracheal intubation. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to evaluate the impact of isolated early hyperoxia exposure in the emergency department (ED) on clinical outcomes among mechanically ventilated patients with subsequent normoxia in the intensive care unit (ICU)...

The present case report describes a rare case of T cell acute lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL) in the lymph node with myeloid sarcoma in the pericardium. A 33-year-old Chinese male was admitted to hospital on 4 July 2015 exhibiting a fever and having experienced wheezing and fatigue for the previous 7 days. Routine pathological, computed tomographic, cytological and immunophenotypic observations revealed a diagnosis of T-LBL in the lymph node on 7 August 2015, without evidence of bone marrow (BM) involvement...

INTRODUCTION: Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) with different arterial clamping techniques has increasingly been performed to avoid ischemic injury to nephron. However, postoperative renal function remains controversial. We determine the impact of each renal arterial clamping on surgical and renal outcomes after RAPN. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent RAPN at Siriraj Hospital from 2010 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed and stratified into 3 cohorts: main-clamp (MAC), selective-clamp, and off-clamp...

BACKGROUND: After living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), rising serum bilirubin levels commonly indicate insufficient numbers of hepatocytes are available to metabolize bilirubin into biliverdin. Recovery of bilirubin levels is an important marker of hepatocyte repopulation after LDLT. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2A6 in humans (or cyp2a4 in rodents) can function as "bilirubin oxidase." Functional hepatocytes contain abundant CYP2A6, which is considered a marker for hepatocyte function recovery...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective observational cohort. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the difference in plasma levels of syndecan-1 (due to glycocalyx degradation) and soluble thrombomodulin (due to endothelial damage) in isolated severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients with/without early coagulopathy. A secondary objective was to compare the effects of the degree of TBI endotheliopathy on hospital mortality among patients with TBI-associated coagulopathy (TBI-AC). METHODS: Data was prospectively collected on isolated severe TBI (sTBI) patients with Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) ≤8 less than 12 h after injury admitted to a level I trauma centre...
