Background A surgical report is the surgeon's postoperative documentation of the procedure undertaken. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the completeness and accuracy of data extracted from surgical reports, using the example of Dupuytren's disease. Material and Methods Between 1999 and 2007, surgical data were retrospectively collected from all primary Dupuytren's disease procedures performed at an academic department for plastic and reconstructive surgery and analysed for completeness. A surgical report was assessed as complete if data on indication, affected side and finger(s), tourniquet, type of incision and surgical procedure were stated...

INTRODUCTION: Confidentiality is a basic ethical principle appreciating human autonomy, relationships, and dignity and in medical research has a long history. In dental practice, it has the same importance as medical field. Therefore, providing patients with information about the confidentiality will promote their confidence in dental professionals and prevent legal conflicts. The present study sought to evaluate the knowledge and viewpoints of dental students about patient confidentiality...

Till date, no analytical method published to detect Cisplatin has been validated according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). We report, a validated LC-MS/MS method for quantitative determination of cisplatin in rat plasma and urine according to FDA guidlines. Cisplatin is a platinum containing compound used for the treatment of different types of cancers. Quantitative determination of cisplatin has been carried out using atomic absorption spectroscopy, high pressure liquid chromatography with phosphorescence, ultra-violet detection, or with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry...

Making final decisions on the occupational etiology of musculoskeletal diseases is often difficult and problematic at every stage of the diagnostic procedure. Taking into account the need to facilitate decision-making about the causal relationship between the diagnosed disease entity and the working conditions guidelines for the recognition of work-related musculoskeletal diseases have been developed. This paper presents the guidelines for the diagnosis of occupational etiology of humeral epicondylitis, one of the most common occupational disease of the musculoskeletal system in Poland...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of an age-dependent D-Dimer cut-off in patients who underwent a computed tomography pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) for suspected pulmonary embolism (PE) Material and Methods: Retrospective application of an age-dependent D-dimer cut-off (age/100 in patients aged over 50) in 530 consecutive patients, both in- and outpatients, aged over 18, who underwent CTPA for suspected PE according to the guidelines. RESULTS: The application of an age-dependent D-dimer cut-off showed a now negative test-result in 17 of 530 patients (3...

We report first-principles molecular dynamics calculations combined with rare events sampling techniques that clarify atom-scale mechanisms of oxygen plasma etching of graphene. The obtained reaction pathways and associated free-energy landscapes show that the etching proceeds near vacancies via a two-step mechanism, formation of precursor lactone structures and the subsequent exclusive CO2 desorption. We find that atomic oxygen among the plasma components is most efficient for etching, providing a guidline in tuning the plasma conditions...

BACKGROUND: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) currently is one oft the most common reasons for chronic liver injury in the western world. In the European and American population the prevalence is up to 30 %. The medical supply of German patients with NAFLD is variable and has not been analyzed to date. METHODS: We sent questionnaires to all university liver centers in Germany (11 questions) concerning the medical supply of patients with NAFLD. Questions included the rate of patients with fatty liver disease in the outpatient clinics, metabolic comorbidities and the kind of assignment...

UNLABELLED: Diverticular disease and diverticulitis represent an increasingly common disease especially in patients with advanced age. The German Society of Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS) as well as the German Society of General and Visceral Surgery (DGAV) in collaboration with the German Radiology Society (DRG) created and published S2k guidelines regarding this topic. Knowledge of the diagnosis and therapy of this common disease is extremely important for the radiologist for the daily clinical routine...

The guidlines are the recommendation for good laboratory practice in embryological laboratories. In this first part the requirements of the clean environment from the point of view of the oocytes, sperm, and embryos protection against infection and from point of view of the embryological laboratory staff health protection were described.

Losartan potassium, Valsartan , Telmisartan and Irbesartan are angiotensin-II-receptor antagonists (ARA II) group which used in treatment of hypertension alone or in combination with other drugs mainly Hydrochlorothiazide. RP- HPLC method was developed for the assay of three angiotensin-II-receptor antagonists (ARA-IIs) in presence of Hydrochlorothiazide. The method was performed by reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography using a mobile phase which is consisted of 0.025 M potassium dihydrogen phosphate (pH 6...

INTRODUCTION: Azoospermia affects more than 10% - 15% of infertile male subjects attending infertilty clinics. At present, testicular biopsy is the golden standard procedure for evaluating spermatogenesis status in men with azoospermia. Semen collection and analysis is a non-invasive method and has proven to be valuable in the evaluation of spermatogenesis. Identification of seminal plasma markers with testicular or extra-testicular origins have a great value in predicting the prescence of sperm in testicular tissue and presumptive cause of azoospermia...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the molecular genetic basis of samples with ABO typing discrepancy and provide the guidline for identification and clinical transfusion for these samples. METHODS: Six cases with similar serological characteristics were collected. Serological method, PCR-SSP and direct sequencing of ABO gene were used to explore the underlying mechanism. Condition of clinical transfusion of patients was also reviewed. RESULTS: Three conditions were related with the ABO blood type discrepancy, which included weaken antigen (2 cases), weakened antibody (3 cases) and ABO subtype (1 case)...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has become a standard surgical procedure for the most of adrenal gland disorders. Hormonal active adenomas, feochromocytomas even some malignant tumors are the most frequent indications. The number of operations for accidentally diagnosed foci has grown rapidly. It has been suggested to revise recommendations specifying criteria, based on which incidentaloma is indicated for adrenalectomy. The aim of this work is to compare the results of adrenalectomies for hormonal active lesions and incidentalomas...
