DNA Barcode Reveals the Bycatch of Endangered Batoids Species in the Southwest Atlantic: Implications for Sustainable Fisheries Management and Conservation Efforts.

Genes (Basel) 2019 Apr 18;10(4). Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Laboratório de Genética Pesqueira e Conservação (GenPesC), Instituto do Mar, Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), Santos 11070-102, Brazil.

Today, elasmobranchs are one the most threatened vertebrate groups worldwide. In fact, at least 90% of elasmobranch species are listed in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, while more than 40% are data-deficient. Although these vertebrates are mainly affected by unsustainable fishery activities, bycatch is also one of the major threats to sharks and batoids worldwide, and represents a challenge for both sustainable fishery management and for biodiversity and conservational efforts.

Determination of Gas-Phase Ion Structures of Locally Polar Homopolymers Through High-Resolution Ion Mobility Spectrometry-Mass Spectrometry.

J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, IUPUI, 723 W Michigan st, Indianapolis, IN, 46202, USA.

The strong synergy arising from coupling two orthogonal analytical techniques such as ion mobility and mass spectrometry can be used to separate complex mixtures and determine structural information of analytes in the gas phase. A tandem study is performed using two systems with different gases and pressures to ascertain gas-phase conformations of homopolymer ions. Aside from spherical and stretched configurations, intermediate configurations formed by a multiply charged globule and a "bead-on-a-string" appendix are confirmed for polyethylene-glycol (PEG), polycaprolactone (PCL), and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS).

Predicting Underlying Neoplasms in Appendiceal Mucoceles at CT: Focal Versus Diffuse Luminal Dilatation.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2019 Apr 11:1-6. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

1 Toronto Joint Department of Medical Imaging, University Health Network-Mount Sinai Hospital-Women's College Hospital, University of Toronto, 585 University Ave, 1PMB-283, Toronto, ON M5G 2N2, Canada.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether a novel morphologic characteristic of appendiceal mucoceles at CT-focal distal appendiceal dilatation with a segment of morphologically normal appendix proximally-could predict an underlying neoplastic pathologic abnormality before surgery and histopathologic assessment.

Materials And Methods: A retrospective study was performed that assessed CT cases from 2012 through 2014. Cases showing morphologic features of a mucocele were identified and categorized into two subgroups: focal distal dilatation with a segment of normal appendix proximally and generalized appendiceal dilatation.

A Rare Case of Low-grade Appendiceal Mucinous Neoplasm: A Case Report.

Cureus 2019 Jan 29;11(1):e3980. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Internal Medicine, Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, Boca Raton, USA.

Low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (LAMN) is a rare malignancy with symptoms varying depending on the clinical manifestations. The most worrisome complication of this particular neoplasm is seeding of mucin into the adjacent peritoneum leading to pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). There is a lack of standardized treatment approach; however, an appendectomy-only approach is currently being used for the resection of non-metastatic disease. Read More

The use of Greek and Latin prepositions and prefixes in compound names: proposed emendation of Appendix 9 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

3​Department of Biology, University of Konstanz, D-78457 Constance, Germany.

Part A of Appendix 9 - Orthography of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes regulates the formation of compound generic names and specific epithets derived by combining two or more words or word elements of Latin and/or Greek origin, using the word stems and connecting vowels (-o- or -i-) following word elements derived from Greek and Latin, respectively. The rules given and the exceptions listed are suitable for substantives (nouns) and adjectives used as word elements, but not for prepositions and prefixes. Therefore, we propose a non-retroactive modification of Appendix 9 so that the guidelines given in Part A apply only to compound names that include a noun or an adjective in a non-final position.

The venous perforators of the lower limb - A new terminology.

Phlebology 2019 Mar 31:268355519837869. Epub 2019 Mar 31.

2 Department of Health Care Studies, College of Polytechnics Jihlava, Jihlava, Czech Republic.

Latin anatomical terminology of venous perforators (communications between superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limb) was adopted as late as 2001 as an appendix to the official nomenclature following the clinicians' request. Terminologia Anatomica, last version of the Latin anatomical nomenclature, published in 1998, unfortunately contains no terms concerning these veins. During the 14th World Congress of the International Union of Phlebology, a consensus document was laid to expand the nomenclature of the lower limb veins, above all 36 new terms for perforators of the lower limb, both in Latin and English languages.

Risk factors for incisional surgical site infection after elective laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

Ann Gastroenterol Surg 2019 Mar 11;3(2):202-208. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery Graduate School of Medicine Yokohama City University Yokohama Japan.

Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a common morbidity in patients undergoing colorectal surgery, and the focus of previous studies has primarily been on incisional SSI. Most reports thus far have focused on open surgery rather than on laparoscopic colorectal surgery (Lap CR). Therefore, the aim of the present study was to identify the risk factors for incisional SSI in patients undergoing elective Lap CR. Read More

Diagnostic Utilization and Accuracy of Pediatric Appendicitis Imaging at Adult and Pediatric Centers.

J Surg Res 2019 Mar 25;240:97-103. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas; Department of Pediatric Surgery, Children's Health, Dallas, Texas. Electronic address:

Background: Diagnostic imaging in pediatric appendicitis may decrease rates of negative appendectomy and identify alternate pathologies. We compared imaging practices for children transferred from nonpediatric facilities versus directly admitted to our tertiary children's hospital for laparoscopic appendectomy, and assessed the diagnostic accuracy in each population based on final pathologic diagnosis.

Materials And Methods: After institutional review board approval, all cases of laparoscopic appendectomy at our children's hospital during 2015 were reviewed. Read More

Clinical Characteristics of Acute Appendicitis in Kidney Transplant Recipients.

Ann Transplant 2019 Mar 26;24:168-173. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Transplant Research Center, Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, South Korea.

BACKGROUND Clinical characteristics of acute appendicitis in kidney transplant recipients may be different from those in the general population due to kidney transplant recipient's immunosuppressive state and position change of appendix caused by graft. MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical characteristics of 10 cases of acute appendicitis among 2880 cases of kidney transplantation were evaluated, including diagnostic rate, location of appendix and complication in kidney transplant recipients. RESULTS Acute appendicitis was suspected in 9 of 10 patients (90%) with acute appendicitis based on clinical and laboratory findings. Read More
