OBJECTIVES: Increased alveolar dead space fraction has been associated with prolonged mechanical ventilation and increased mortality in pediatric patients with respiratory failure. The association of alveolar dead space fraction with clinical outcomes in patients undergoing bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis for single ventricle congenital heart disease has not been reported. We describe an association of alveolar dead space fraction with postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis...

BVS, as compared with DES, have higher stent thrombosis (ST) rates. BVS may prove reasonable in patients with complex anatomy. Future trials will be necessary to guide clinicians regarding whether BVS are equivalent to DES in patients with noncomplex or complex coronary anatomy.

The majority of the Yucatán State, México, presents subtropical climate that is suitable for many species of mosquitoes that are known to be vectors of diseases, including those from the genera Aedes and Culex. The objective of this study is to identify the geographic distribution of five species from these two genera and estimate the human population at risk of coming in contact with them. We compiled distributional data for Aedes aegypti (L.), Aedes (Howardina) cozumelensis (Diaz Najera), Culex coronator Dyar and Knab, Culex quinquefasciatus Say, and Culex thriambus Dyar from several entomological studies in Yucatán between March 2010 and September 2014...

Blood-feeding status, gonotrophic cycle, and survival rates of Aedes (Stegmyia) aegypti (L.) was investigated in catholic churches from Merida, Yucatan. Female Ae. aegypti were caught using backpack aspirator during 25 consecutive days in rainy (2015) and dry season (2016). Blood-feeding status was determined by external examination of the abdomen and classified as unfed, fed, and gravid. Daily changes in the parous-nulliparous ratio were recorded, and the gonotrophic cycle length was estimated by a time series analysis...

BACKGROUND: Poor renal function is associated with higher mortality after liver transplantation. Our aim was to understand the impact of kidney graft quality according to the kidney donor profile index (KDPI) score on survival after simultaneous liver-kidney (SLK) transplantation. METHODS: Using United Network of Organ Sharing data from 2002 to 2013 for adult deceased donor SLK recipients, we compared survival and renal graft outcomes according to KDPI. RESULTS: Of 4207 SLK transplants, 6% were from KDPI >85% donors...

Although laparoscopic surgery accounts for >2 million surgical procedures every year, the current preoperative risk scores and guidelines do not adequately assess the risks of laparoscopy. In general, laparoscopic procedures have a lower risk of morbidity and mortality compared with operations requiring a midline laparotomy. During laparoscopic surgery, carbon dioxide insufflation may produce significant hemodynamic and ventilatory consequences such as increased intraabdominal pressure and hypercarbia. Hemodynamic insults secondary to increased intraabdominal pressure include increased afterload and preload and decreased cardiac output, whereas ventilatory consequences include increased airway pressures, hypercarbia, and decreased pulmonary compliance...

Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are now widely used as alternatives to warfarin for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation and management of venous thromboembolism. In clinical practice, there is still widespread uncertainty on how to manage patients on NOACs who bleed or who are at risk for bleeding. Clinical trial data related to NOAC reversal for bleeding and perioperative management are sparse, and recommendations are largely derived from expert opinion. Knowledge of time of last ingestion of the NOAC and renal function is critical to managing these patients given that laboratory measurement is challenging because of the lack of commercially available assays in the United States...

BACKGROUND: Exercise may be a therapeutic tool for improving the functional capacity in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are on hemodialysis (HD). AIM: To determine the effects on muscle strength (MS), functional capacity (FC) and quality of life related to health (QOLRH) of a resistance training program in patients with CKD on HD. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirteen CKD patients aged 38.8 ± 3 years, (7 men) on HD for more than one year participated in an exercise program twice a week during 8 weeks...

We detected macroscopic Sarcocystis cysts in a Northern Shoveler ( Anas clypeata ) in the Lerma Marshes, State of Mexico, Mexico in February 2014. The 5.0×2.0-mm macrocysts in the breast muscle of the duck were ovoid and yellow. Using an optical microscope, we saw parasitic forms of a Sarcocystis sp. among muscular fibers; the cysts measured 3.5×1.1 mm. The external wall had a smooth surface and the internal wall had a spongy texture. We identified the macrocysts as Sarcocystis rileyi according to sequences of the 18S rRNA gene, 28S rRNA gene, and ITS-1 region...

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) was isolated from 12 febrile humans in Yucatan, Mexico, in 2015. One patient was co-infected with dengue virus type 1. Two additional CHIKV isolates were obtained from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes collected in the homes of patients. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the CHIKV isolates belong to the Asian lineage.

BACKGROUND: Contrast ultrasound-mediated gene delivery (CUMGD) is a promising approach for enhancing gene therapy that relies on microbubble (MB) cavitation to augment complementary deoxyribonucleic acid (cDNA) transfection. The aims of this study were to determine optimal conditions for charge-coupling cDNA to MBs and to evaluate the advantages of surface loading for gene transfection in muscle and liver. METHODS: Charge coupling of fluorescently labeled cDNA to either neutral MBs (MBN) or cationic MBs (MB+) in low- to high-ionic conditions (0...
