La cirugía artroscópica de cadera en deportistas varones menores de 40 años con choque femoroacetabular: resultado a corto plazo
submitted by soteshkappalo 24 minutes ago - Topic: Health
El choque femoroacetabular es el mecanismo más común descrito en la literatura que conduce a la lesión del labrum y del cartílago articular en la cadera no displásica. Nuestro objetivo fue determinar los resultados clínicos y radiológicos de la cirugía artroscópica de cadera como tratamiento del choque femoroacetabular en pacientes jóvenes con alta demanda funcional. Estudio prospecti...

Síndrome de DRESS como complicación de la antibioterapia en niños tratados por infecciones ortopédicas. A propósito de 2 casos
submitted by soteshkappalo 24 minutes ago - Topic: Health
La infección osteoarticular en el niño es frecuente por debajo de los 10 años. El tratamiento consiste en la administración de antibióticos y en algunos casos tratamiento quirúrgico. El tiempo de antibioterapia varía, desde 2 semanas para las artritis, hasta 6 semanas en casos de osteomielitis más abigarradas. Algunos de estos medicamentos poseen complicaciones individuales directas con...



Oral health-related quality of life of schoolchildren: impact of clinical and psychosocial variables
submitted by izzy 36 minutes ago - Topic: Health
Besides the clinical aspects, the patient's perspective of oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) may be influenced by a series of individual characteristics. The aim was to investigate the impact of clinical and psychosocial variables on the OHRQoL of Brazilian schoolchildren. A school-based cross-sectional study was conducted with children of 8–10 year old attending public (15) and p...

Dental fear and expected effectiveness of destructive coping as predictors of children's uncooperative intentions in dental settings
submitted by izzy 36 minutes ago - Topic: Health
To explore the mechanisms by which some children select disruptive behaviours to cope with stressful dental events. In particular, the relationships between dental fear, expected effectiveness of destructive coping, and intentions of displaying uncooperative behaviours were analysed. Participants were 170 children who filled out a questionnaire survey. Descriptive statistics by gender and group...


Endogenous vagal activation dampens intestinal inflammation independently of splenic innervation in Postoperative Ileus
submitted by f2060o 41 minutes ago - Topic: Health
Postoperative Ileus is encountered by patients undergoing open abdominal surgery and is characterized by intestinal inflammation associated with impaired gastrointestinal motility. We recently showed that inflammation of the gut muscularis triggered activation of the vagal efferent pathway mainly targeting the inflamed zone. In the present study we investigate further the modulatory role of end...

Regulatory pathways affecting vascular stabilization via VE-cadherin dynamics: insights from zebrafish (Danio rerio)
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
The endothelial-specific transmembrane glycoprotein, vascular endothelial (VE)-cadherin, is required for the organization of a stable vascular endothelium. A number of cerebrovascular disorders are associated with mutations in genes that otherwise regulate vascular integrity through VE-cadherin dynamics. Hence, identification and characterization of regulatory pathways contributing to endotheli...


Moderately elevated intracranial pressure after diffuse traumatic brain injury is associated with exacerbated neuronal pathology and behavioral morbidity in the rat
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
Traumatic brain injury (TBI)-induced elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) is correlated with ensuing morbidity/mortality in humans. This relationship is assumed to rely mostly on the recognition that extremely elevated ICP either indicates hematoma/contusions capable of precipitating herniation or alters cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), which precipitates global ischemia. Howe...

BMP signaling modulation attenuates cerebral arteriovenous malformation formation in a vertebrate model
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
Cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are vascular anomalies that carry a high risk of stroke and death. To test potential AVM therapies, a reverse genetics approach was used to model AVMs in zebrafish. Antisense morpholino oligonucleotides were used to knockdown activin receptor-like kinase I (alk1), which encodes a transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta family type I receptor implicated ...


Brain BDNF levels elevation induced by physical training is reduced after unilateral common carotid artery occlusion in rats
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
We investigated the contribution of blood flow elevation in the cerebrovasculature to physical training-induced brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels elevation in the brain. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor protein levels were measured in the motor cortex 24 h after the last session of a forced treadmill walking (30 minutes a day, 18 m/minute for 7 consec...

A cognitive rehabilitation paradigm effective in male rats lacks efficacy in female rats
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
Cognitive dysfunction, as a consequence of dementia, is a significant cause of morbidity lacking efficacious treatment. Females comprise at least half of this demographic but have been vastly underrepresented in preclinical studies. The current study addressed this gap by assessing the protective efficacy of physical exercise and cognitive activity on learning and memory outcomes in a rat model...

Capillary transit time heterogeneity and flow-metabolism coupling after traumatic brain injury
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
Most patients who die after traumatic brain injury (TBI) show evidence of ischemic brain damage. Nevertheless, it has proven difficult to demonstrate cerebral ischemia in TBI patients. After TBI, both global and localized changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF) are observed, depending on the extent of diffuse brain swelling and the size and location of contusions and hematoma. These changes vary c...

Cerebral vascular leak in a mouse model of amyloid neuropathology
submitted by jasicongos 1 hour ago - Topic: Health
In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), there is increasing evidence of blood–brain barrier (BBB) compromise, usually observed as ‘microbleeds’ correlated with amyloid plaque deposition and apoE-ε4 status, raising the possibility of nanotherapeutic delivery. Molecular probes have been used to study neurovascular leak, but this approach does not adequately estimate v...
