OBJECTIVES: To compare outcomes after minimalist and standard transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TF-TAVR) in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). BACKGROUND: TF-TAVR is increasingly performed with conscious sedation and transthoracic echocardiography guidance (minimalist). The safety/efficacy of this technique in patients with severe COPD is unknown. METHODS: We compared demographics, 30-day outcomes and 1-year survival of patients with severe COPD (FEV1% ≤50) who underwent minimalist vs...

Psychological essentialism is a folk theory characterized by the belief that a causal internal essence or force gives rise to the common outward behaviors or attributes of a category's members. In two studies, we investigated whether 4- to 7-year-old children evidenced essentialist reasoning about heart transplants by asking them to predict whether trading hearts with an individual would cause them to take on the donor's attributes. Control conditions asked children to consider the effects of trading money with an individual...

Mimicking the multifunctional bacterial type IV pili (T4Ps) nanofibres provides an important avenue towards the development of new functional nanostructured biomaterials. Yet, the development of T4Ps-based applications is limited by the inability to form these nanofibres in vitro from their pilin monomers. Here, to overcome this limitation, we followed a reductionist approach and designed a self-assembling pilin-based 20-mer peptide, derived from the presumably bioelectronic pilin of Geobacter sulfurreducens...

CONTEXT:  Minimalist shoes have been suggested as a way to alter running biomechanics to improve running performance and reduce injuries. However, to date, researchers have only considered the effect of minimalist shoes at slow running speeds. OBJECTIVE:  To determine if runners change foot-strike pattern and alter the distribution of mechanical work at the knee and ankle joints when running at a fast speed in minimalist shoes compared with conventional running shoes...

Here we present a novel bio-inspired optic flow (OF) sensor and its application to visual  guidance and odometry on a low-cost car-like robot called BioCarBot. The minimalistic OF sensor was robust to high-dynamic-range lighting conditions and to various visual patterns encountered thanks to its M(2)APIX auto-adaptive pixels and the new cross-correlation OF algorithm implemented. The low-cost car-like robot estimated its velocity and steering angle, and therefore its position and orientation, via an extended Kalman filter (EKF) using only two downward-facing OF sensors and the Ackerman steering model...

Demographic data point to a substantial proportion of women in the population of elderly patients with an increasing prevalence of aortic stenosis. Implantation of an aortic bioprosthesis via an endovascular approach known as Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients presenting with a symptomatic tight aortic stenosis (severe aortic stenosis) (AS) is an alternative therapeutic option to surgical aortic valve replacement in patients at high surgical risk or ineligible for surgery. The literature has shown that this technique seems to be particularly beneficial in female patients...

BACKGROUND: Estimated fetal weight (EFW) and fetal biometry are complementary measures to screen for fetal growth disturbances. Our aim was to provide international EFW standards to complement the INTERGROWTH-21(st) Fetal Growth Standards that are available for use worldwide. METHODS: Women with an accurate gestational age assessment, who were enrolled in the prospective, international, multicentre, population-based, Fetal Growth Longitudinal Growth Study (FGLS) and INTERBIO-21(st) Fetal Study (FS), two of the components of the INTERGROWTH-21(st) Project, had ultrasound scans every 5 weeks from 9-14 weeks until 40 weeks' gestation...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become a well-established intervention with reproducible and excellent early and mid-term outcomes. A minimalist approach to TAVI is already the standard of care in many experienced centers. In this report, we share our experience and opinions on how we can further simplify the TAVI procedure in hope to establish the best possible outcomes.

The dynamic nature of supramolecular polymers has a key role in their organization. Yet, the manipulation of their dimensions and polarity remains a challenge. Here, the minimalistic diphenylalanine building block was applied to demonstrate control of nano-assemblies growth and shrinkage using microfluidics. To fine-tune differential local environments, peptide nanotubes were confined by micron-scale pillars and subjected to monomer flows of various saturation levels to control assembly and disassembly. The small-volume device allows the rapid adjustment of conditions within the system...

During evolution, parasitic microorganisms have faced the challenges of adapting to different environments to colonize a variety of hosts. Giardia lamblia, a common cause of intestinal disease, has developed fascinating strategies to adapt both outside and inside its host's intestine, such as trophozoite differentiation into cyst and the switching of its major surface antigens. How gene expression is regulated during these adaptive processes remains undefined. Giardia lacks some typical eukaryotic features, like canonical transcription factors, linker histone H1, and complex promoter regions; suggesting that post-transcriptional and translational control of gene expression is essential for parasite survival...

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the effect of Vibram FiveFingers Bikila minimalist shoes on intrinsic foot musculature. We hypothesized that a gradual transition into minimalist shoes will increase the thickness of the abductor hallucis muscle. METHODS: Forty-one individuals were divided into four groups: control (traditional shod) (n = 9), restricted walking in Vibram FiveFingers (n = 11), running in Vibram FiveFingers (n = 10), and unlimited walking in Vibram FiveFingers (n = 11)...

A series of air-stable boron complexes 1-5 were prepared by using N-aryl iminopyrrolide ligands. Designed as minimalist structural mimics of the privileged BODIPY motif, these new BOIMPY (BOron complexes of IMinoPYrrolide ligands) fluorophores feature low molecular symmetry that promotes emission from CT-type excited states with large Stokes shifts and little self-quenching. Through comparative studies on the homologous set of compounds 1-4, we have confirmed that a delicate interplay between conformational twisting and donor-acceptor interaction dictates the mechanism of de-excitation, which responds sensitively to solvent polarity as well as protonation states...

Herein we report on the multicomponent synthesis of a novel imidazole-based compound, able to act efficiently as a minimalist β-strand mimic. Biological evaluation proved its ability to impair the LDLR-PCSK9 protein-protein interaction, disclosing it as the first small molecule exerting a PCSK9-mediated hypocholesterolemic effect.

CONTEXT: Achilles tendons adapt to increased loading generated by long-term adoption of a minimalist shoe running style. There may be difference in the chronology and extent of adaptation between the sexes. OBJECTIVE: We sought to learn the chronology of Achilles tendon adaptations in female and male runners who transitioned to a minimalist running style through a planned, progressive, 12-week transition program. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study of well-trained, traditionally shod runners who transitioned to minimalist shoe running...

CONTEXT: Tendon adapts to load through alterations in its composition and mechanical properties. Mechanical adaptation to increased load often involves increases in cross sectional area, stiffness and modulus. Runners exhibit these adaptations. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine if runners wearing minimalist shoes had larger and stiffer Achilles tendons (AT) compared to traditionally shod runners. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study of well-trained, traditionally and minimally shod runners...

We study the spreading of a bacterial colony undergoing turbulentlike collective motion. We present two minimalistic models to investigate the interplay between population growth and coherent structures arising from turbulence. Using direct numerical simulation of the proposed models we find that turbulence has two prominent effects on the spatial growth of the colony: (a) the front speed is enhanced, and (b) the front gets crumpled. Both these effects, which we highlight by using statistical tools, are markedly different in our two models...
