Treatment Outcome of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Petroclival Meningiomas: Retrospective Analysis of a Single Institution Experience.

Brain Tumor Res Treat 2020 Oct;8(2):83-92

Department of Neurosurgery, Chonnam National University Hwasun Hospital, Chonnam National University Medical School, Hwasun, Korea.

Background: Although Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) has been widely used for intracranial meningiomas as an alternative or adjuvant treatment, guidelines have not been established for the selection of patients with petroclival meningioma (PCM) for GKRS. In this study, we reported the factors related to tumor progression and postoperative complications in PCM patients treated by GKRS, with a review of the literatures.

Methods: Between 2004 and 2019, 64 patients (52 patients for alternative and 12 patients for adjuvant treatment) with PCM underwent GKRS in our institution. Read More

Polarizable continuum models provide an effective electrostatic embedding model for fragment-based chemical shift prediction in challenging systems.

J Comput Chem 2020 10 4;41(26):2251-2265. Epub 2020 Aug 4.

Department of Chemistry, Univeristy of California, Riverside, California, USA.

Ab initio nuclear magnetic resonance chemical shift prediction provides an important tool for interpreting and assigning experimental spectra, but it becomes computationally prohibitive in large systems. The computational costs can be reduced considerably by fragmentation of the large system into a series of contributions from many smaller subsystems. However, the presence of charged functional groups and the need to partition the system across covalent bonds create complications in biomolecules that typically require the use of large fragments and careful descriptions of the electrostatic environment.

Controlled Release of Stem Cell Secretome Attenuates Inflammatory Response against Implanted Biomaterials.

Adv Healthc Mater 2020 06 18;9(12):e1901874. Epub 2020 May 18.

Sue and Bill Stem Cell Center, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, 92617, USA.

Inflammatory response against implanted biomaterials impairs their functional integration and induces medical complications in the host's body. To suppress such immune responses, one approach is the administration of multiple drugs to halt inflammatory pathways. This challenges patient's adherence and can cause additional complications such as infection. Read More

Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass with One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass with a Biliopancreatic Limb of 200 or 160 cm: 1-Year Results of the Tehran Obesity Treatment Study (TOTS).

Obes Surg 2020 Sep;30(9):3528-3535

Obesity Research Center, Research Institute for Endocrine Sciences, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Purpose: One-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) has raised concerns about nutritional complications possibly attributed to the biliopancreatic limb (BPL) length. We aimed to assess the results of a conservative approach of OAGB compared with the original OAGB and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in a 1-year follow-up study.

Materials And Methods: This retrospective study was conducted based on prospectively maintained data in a cohort of patients who underwent either RYGB with a Roux limb of a 150 cm and a BPL of 50 cm (n = 145), OAGB with a 200-cm BPL (n = 272), or OAGB with a 160-cm BPL (n = 383), from March 2013 to 2017 at three university hospitals by a single surgical team.

Coding for Malnutrition in the Hospital: Does It Change Reimbursement?

Nutr Clin Pract 2019 Dec 24;34(6):823-831. Epub 2019 Oct 24.

Morrison Healthcare, Tucson, Arizona, USA.

Protein calorie malnutrition (PCM) is prevalent in the acute care setting, affecting up to 50% of hospitalized patients. PCM is associated with poor outcomes, including increased hospital and intensive care unit length of stay, hospital readmission rates, incidence of pressure injuries and nosocomial infections, and mortality. PCM is a financial burden on the healthcare system through direct costs related to treatment as well as indirect costs related to poorer outcomes and complications. Read More

Prolonged Cardiac Rhythm Monitoring and Secondary Stroke Prevention in Patients With Cryptogenic Cerebral Ischemia.

Stroke 2019 08 20;50(8):2175-2180. Epub 2019 Jun 20.

Department of Neurology, Alpert Medical School, Brown University, Providence, RI (B.M.G., B.A.R., S.C., K.F., S.Y.).

Background and Purpose- Although prolonged cardiac rhythm monitoring (PCM) can reveal a substantial proportion of ischemic stroke (IS) patients with atrial fibrillation not detected by conventional short-term monitoring, current guidelines indicate an uncertain clinical benefit for PCM. We evaluated the impact of PCM on secondary stroke prevention using data from available to date randomized clinical trials and observational studies. Methods- We performed a comprehensive literature search in MEDLINE, SCOPUS, CENTRAL (Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trial), and conference proceedings to identify studies reporting stroke recurrence rates in patients with history of cryptogenic IS or transient ischemic attack (TIA) receiving PCM compared with patients receiving conventional (non-PCM) cardiac monitoring.

Would personal cooling vest be effective for use during exercise by people with thoracic spinal cord injury?

J Therm Biol 2019 May 13;82:123-141. Epub 2019 Apr 13.

Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, American University of Beirut Medical Center, P.O. Box: 11-0236, Riad El Solh Beirut, 1107 2020, Beirut, Lebanon.

People with thoracic spinal cord injury (SCI), named people with paraplegia (PA), are vulnerable to thermal heat stress during exercise due to disruption in their thermal physiology. Using personal cooling vests with phase change material (PCM) or ice presents a possible solution for PA to suppress the increase in core temperature and body heat storage. With the limited published experimental studies about effective cooling vest for PA, this work aims to develop an altered PA bioheat model combined with cooling vest model to study cooling vest performance during exercise.
