HCV-Positive Allograft Use in Heart Transplantation Is Associated With Increased Access to Overdose Donors and Reduced Waitlist Mortality Without Compromising Outcomes.

J Card Fail 2021 Jul 24. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Electronic address:

Background: Because of ongoing shortages of donors for heart transplantation, the use of donor candidates whose availabilities are the result of drug overdoses (ODs) has become increasingly prevalent, even though these donors carry a high preponderance of the now curable hepatitis C virus (HCV). This study investigated temporal trends and regional variabilities in HVC-positive (HCV+) allograft use in heart transplantation and assessed the relationship between the use of HCV+ graft donors and the use of OD donors as well as assessing waitlist and post-transplant outcomes.

Methods And Results: A retrospective review of the United Network for Organ Sharing database assessed adults listed for heart transplantation. Read More

A step-by-step approach to endorectal proctopexy (ERPP): how we do it.

Tech Coloproctol 2021 07 28;25(7):879-886. Epub 2021 May 28.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, S. Rita Clinic, Vercelli, Italy.

There are many surgical treatments aimed at correcting internal mucosal prolapse and rectocele associated with obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS). Perineal procedures can be considered as first options in young men in whom an abdominal approach poses risks of sexual dysfunction and in selected women with isolated posterior compartment prolapse who failed conservative treatment. About 20 years ago, we described endorectal proctopexy (ERPP) also known as internal Delorme procedure. Read More

Metabolic adaptation characterizes short-term resistance to weight loss induced by a low-calorie diet in overweight/obese individuals.

Am J Clin Nutr 2021 07;114(1):267-280

Translational Research Institute, AdventHealth, Orlando, FL, USA.

Background: Low-calorie diet (LCD)-induced weight loss demonstrates response heterogeneity. Physiologically, a decrease in energy expenditure lower than what is predicted based on body composition (metabolic adaptation) and/or an impaired capacity to increase fat oxidation may hinder weight loss. Understanding the metabolic components that characterize weight loss success is important for optimizing weight loss strategies. Read More

Clinical predictive factors for diagnosis of MOG-IgG and AQP4-IgG related paediatric optic neuritis: a Chinese cohort study.

Br J Ophthalmol 2020 Nov 16. Epub 2020 Nov 16.

Department of Neurology, The First Medical Center, Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital, Beijing, China

5-HT3 blockade does not attenuate postspinal blood pressure change in cesarean section: A case-control study.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Sep;99(36):e21864

Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine.

Spinal anesthesia (SpA) for elective caesarean section (CS) is often accompanied by clinically relevant arterial hypotension. The Bezold-Jarisch reflex, causing postspinal hypotension, has been shown to be antagonized by serotonin type 3 (5-HT3) blockade. Our aim was to assess if routine prophylactic administration of the 5-HT3 antagonist ondansetron (ODS) attenuates postspinal change in maternal blood pressure. Read More

Why Do Antarctic Ozone Recovery Trends Vary?

J Geophys Res Atmos 2019 Aug;124(15):8837-8850

Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Laboratory, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, USA.

We use satellite ozone records and Global Modeling Initiative chemistry transport model simulations integrated with Modern Era Retrospective for Research and Analysis 2 meteorology to identify a metric that accurately captures the trend in Antarctic ozone attributable to the decline in ozone depleting substances (ODSs). The GMI CTM Baseline simulation with realistically varying ODS levels closely matches observed interannual to decadal scale variations in Antarctic September ozone over the past four decades. The expected increase or recovery trend is obtained from the differences between the Baseline simulation and one with identical meteorology and fixed 1995 ODS levels. Read More

Feasibility of Postmortem Imaging Assessment of Brain: Liver Volume Ratios with Pathological Validation.

Fetal Diagn Ther 2019 10;46(6):360-367. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Radiology, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, London, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Organ volumes at postmortem magnetic resonance imaging (PMMR) should reflect autopsy organ weights, and thus brain:liver volume ratios on imaging could be a surrogate for weight volume ratios at autopsy to indicate fetal growth restriction (FGR). This study aims to determine whether imaging-based organ volume ratios can replace autopsy organ weight ratios. Materials and Meth ods: An unselected cohort of perinatal deaths underwent PMMR prior to autopsy. Read More
