[Early diagnosis, prevention and treatment for calcific uremic arteriolopathy].

Zhong Nan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2018 Nov;43(11):1251-1256

Department of Nephrology, Third Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha 410013, China.

Calcific uremic arteriopathy (CUA), termed calciphylaxis, is a rare but highly fatal clinical syndrome. There is no clearly laboratory diagnostic criteria for CUA. The medium and small arterial calcification and microthrombosis discovered by skin biopsy, radiologic imaging,bone scan and the evidence of activation of the bone morphogenetic protein signal (BMPs) transduction pathway are useful for early diagnosis of this disease.

Delaying latency to hyperbaric oxygen-induced CNS oxygen toxicity seizures by combinations of exogenous ketone supplements.

Physiol Rep 2019 Jan;7(1):e13961

Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, Laboratory of Metabolic Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida.

Central nervous system oxygen toxicity (CNS-OT) manifests as tonic-clonic seizures and is a limitation of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), as well as of recreational and technical diving associated with elevated partial pressure of oxygen. A previous study showed that ketone ester (1,3-butanediol acetoacetate diester, KE) administration delayed latency to seizures (LS) in 3-month-old Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. This study explores the effect of exogenous ketone supplements in additional dosages and formulations on CNS-OT seizures in 18 months old SD rats, an age group correlating to human middle age.

Int J Gen Med 2018 20;11:431-442. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Internal Medicine, Graduate Medical Education, St Vincent Charity Medical Center, Cleveland, OH, USA,

Hypoxia causes a cascade of activity from the level of the individual down to the regulation and function of the cell nucleus. Prolonged periods of low oxygen tension are a core feature of several disease states. Advances in the study of molecular biology have begun to bridge the gap between the cellular response to hypoxia and physiology. Read More

Aerosp Med Hum Perform 2018 Dec;89(12):1085-1088

Decompression sickness is a condition that results from an abrupt change from a higher to a lower pressure. It is described most commonly in divers; however, it can occur in aviation incidents, which this case report will discuss. Following an acute cabin depressurization incident, 36 patients presented to a small outpatient clinic with multiple symptoms, including fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, and dizziness. Read More

Targeting optimal time for hyperbaric oxygen therapy following carbon monoxide poisoning for prevention of delayed neuropsychiatric sequelae: A retrospective study.

J Neurol Sci 2019 Jan 22;396:187-192. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Institute of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan; Division of Clinical Toxicology & Occupational Medicine, Department of Medicine, Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Objectives: Delayed neuropsychiatric sequelae (DNS) are serious complications of carbon monoxide poisoning; neuropsychiatric disorders can occur within a few days of recovery from acute poisoning. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been the main treatment of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and was recommended as the treatment choice for CO poisoning by the American Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society and the Tenth European Consensus Conference on Hyperbaric Medicine of the European Underwater and Baromedical Society. However, the optimal timing for commencing HBOT in patients with CO poisoning remains unknown. Read More

SkQ1 Controls CASP3 Gene Expression and Caspase-3-Like Activity in the Brain of Rats under Oxidative Stress.

Biochemistry (Mosc) 2018 Oct;83(10):1245-1254

Southern Federal University, Academy of Biology and Biotechnology, Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology, Rostov-on-Don, 344090, Russia.

Here, we studied the effect of the mitochondria-targeted antioxidant SkQ1 (plastoquinone cationic derivative) on the CASP3 gene expression and caspase-3 activity in rat cerebral cortex and brain mitochondria under normal conditions and in oxidative stress induced by hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO). Under physiological conditions, SkQ1 administration (50 nmol/kg, 5 days) did not affect the CASP3 gene expression and caspase-3-like activity in the cortical cells, as well as caspase-3-like activity in brain mitochondria, but caused a moderate decrease in the content of primary products of lipid peroxidation (LPO) and an increase in the reduced glutathione (GSH) level. HBO-induced oxidative stress (0. Read More

Fasciitis necrotisans - duplicitas casuum.

Rozhl Chir 2018 ;97(9):432-441

Necrotizing fasciitis is a dangerous bacterial infectious disease that is not commonplace in Czech society. On the other hand, neither is it so rare that the majority of surgeons should not come across it occasionally. In the early stages, pathological changes in fascia, subcutaneous tissue and even skin may run an inconspicuous course. Read More
