The preference of modern consumers for high-quality meat has forced breeders to use native breeds to produce capons. Caponization, both chemical and surgical, leads to androgen deficiency and changes in lipid metabolism and results in the accumulation of abdominal, subcutaneous, and intramuscular lipids, which change the sensory values of the meat. The aim of this study was to histologically evaluate selected skeletal muscles from Greenleg Partridge capons and cockerels. We examined lipid localization in the muscular tissue and also assessed both fiber type and fiber diameter in the pectoral muscles...

OBJECTIVES: To assess intraexaminer and interexaminer reliability of 3-dimensional fetal sonographic measurements. METHODS: Three-dimensional fetal organ volumes (head, kidney, total thigh volume, and fractional thigh volume) were acquired during the second and third trimesters, with the addition of placental volume in the second trimester, by 2 different experienced, blinded sonographers. Fifty-eight fetuses were examined from 21 to 39 weeks' gestation. Intraexaminer and Interexaminer reliability was assessed with Bland-Altman plots, and their 95% limits of agreement and intraclass correlation coefficients...

Remote Ischemic Conditioning (RIC), induced by brief cycles of ischemia and reperfusion, protects vital organs from a prolonged ischemic insult. While several biochemical mediators have been implicated in RIC's mechanism of action, it remains unclear whether the localization or "dose" of RIC affects the extent of protective signaling. In this randomized crossover study of healthy individuals, we tested whether the number of cycles of RIC and its localization (arm versus thigh) determines biochemical signaling and cytoprotection...

Jennifer L Harrington, Peter J Capizzi
Background: Many patients that have undergone mastectomy surgery are left with residual lateral fat under the arm. While the fat may be associated with pain and cause undesirable bulges in clothing and skin irritation, most post-mastectomy patients are not interested in additional surgery. Objectives: Cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical procedure for fat reduction. The procedure is typically performed for aesthetic improvement in the abdomen, thighs, and flanks, but cryolipolysis was explored in this study for reconstructive purposes...

Thirteen independent induced bovine trophectroderm (iBT) cell lines were established by reprogramming bovine fetal liver-derived fibroblasts after viral-vector transduction with either 6 or 8 factors, including POU5F1 (OCT4), KLF4, SOX2, MYC, NANOG, LIN28, SV40 large T antigen, and hTERT.. Light- and electron-microscopy analysis showed that the iBT cells had epithelial cell morphology typical of bovine trophectoderm cells. Reverse-transcription-PCR assays indicated that all of the cell lines expressed interferon-tau (IFNT) at passages 1 or 2...

AIM: The effect of nitroglycerin on proper arterial stiffness of the arterial tree has not been fully clarified. The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), which is an application of the stiffness parameter β theory on the arterial tree from the origin of the aorta to the ankle, was developed recently. Furthermore, the stiffness of the aorta (heart-thigh β (htBeta)) and of the femoral-tibial arteries (thigh to ankle β (taBeta)) could be monitored by applying the same theory. The effects of nitroglycerin on CAVI, htBeta, and taBeta were studied comparing the values of healthy people and those of arteriosclerotic patients...

Towards addressing the need for novel alternatives to antibiotics, we attempted to sensitize Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) to innate antibacterial protagonists. We report a lipopeptide-like sequence (C10OOc12O) that inflicted outer-membrane damages at low micromolar range, whereas measurable bacterial growth inhibition in broth medium required >10-fold higher concentrations. In serum however, C10OOc12O induced antibacterial activity in a manner suppressible by anti-complements antibodies or heat treatment, and acted synergistically with exogenous lysozyme in broth and serum media...

INTRODUCTION: The medial thighplasty is a procedure where patients may attain superior mobility, hygiene, and cosmesis. Most surgeons use attachment of the superficial fascial system (SFS) of the thigh flap to the Colles fascia, whereas others attach the SFS to the pubic ramus periosteum. Because of a high complication profile, we aim to elucidate the clinical, biomechanical, and anatomic qualities of the Colles fascia versus the pubic ramus periosteum. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a 17-year retrospective review documenting clinical complications, a biomechanical analysis of sutures placed in different tissue layers of the thigh, and a histologic analysis surrounding the ischiopubic ramus...

BACKGROUND: The multimodal approach is commonly applied to improve knee swelling after total knee arthroplasty. Although the use of a knee compression pad may improve knee swelling, its impact in the multimodal protocol remains unclear. METHODS: A total of 57 knees were randomly assigned to one of 2 groups receiving treatment with either a compression dressing using a polyethylene foam pad designed to effectively compress the postoperative knee combined with an elastic bandage or a compression dressing with use of an elastic bandage only...

The prolonged use of bisphosphonates has been associated with an increased rate of atypical femoral fracture. A 77-year-old woman with prolonged bisphosphonate use presented to our office with groin pain and end-stage arthritis, She was scheduled for a total hip replacement. Before the surgery and with minimal trauma, the patient then suffered a displaced atypical femoral fracture. She underwent a total hip replacement as a treatment for her fracture and her arthritis. Subsequently, the patient presented with pain in the contralateral thigh with an incomplete atypical femoral fracture...

The development of pseudotumors is not uncommon with metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty. Pseudotumors that dissect into the retroperitoneal space can cause symptoms of nerve compression. We describe a case of a 53-year-old male with a metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty who developed mild symptoms of a femoral nerve neuropathy 6 years postoperatively. Revision arthroplasty to a ceramic-on-polyethylene articulation and debridement of the pseudotumor was performed. Postoperatively, the patient's femoral neuropathy progressed and a repeat magnetic resonance imaging showed an increase in size of the pseudotumor despite the removal of the offending metal-on-metal articulation...

In the advent of increasing demand for total hip arthroplasty, surveillance of these patients is imperative to identify potential complications requiring revision surgery. This is especially important in the young population, as revision is usually necessary during their lifetime. We present a case of a young female patient with a history of total hip arthroplasty 17 years prior, who presented with left hip pain and anterior thigh mass. The prosthetic hip had progressed to catastrophic failure with the cobalt-chrome femoral head having eroded through the polyethylene and acetabular socket...

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment of cancers that arise from or invade the hypopharynx presents major reconstructive challenges. Reconstructive failure exposes the airway and neck vessels to digestive contents. METHODS: We performed a national N = near-all analysis of the administrative dataset to identify pharyngolaryngectomies in England between 2002 and 2012. Information about morbidity, pharyngeal closure method and post-operative complications was derived. RESULTS: There were 1589 predominantly male (78%) patients whose mean age at surgery was 62 years...
