Thrombosis and Multiple System Embolization from an on- X Aortic Valve on Clopidogrel- A Review of Pooled Analysis of 2,389 Patient

Kalgi Modi

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 21, 2015

Thombosis of a mechanical aortic valve is a rare but life threatening complication and in most cases is caused by inadequate or interrupted anticoagulant treatment. Prosthetic valve thrombosis may cause systemic embolization with clinical manifestation dependent on the organ involved. Multiple systemic embolization resulting from non-infective thrombotic aortic prosthetic valve is a rare occurrenc...

Current Pharmacotherapy Strategies and Considerations for the Cognitive Dysfunction Associated with Schizophrenia: A Mini Review

Hikaru Hori, Reiji Yoshimura, Asuka Katsuki, Kiyokazu Atake and Jun Nakamura

Article Type: Mini Review | First Published: March 19, 2015

Cognitive dysfunction associated with schizophrenia is a core symptom that is strongly related to functional levels. In fact, cognitive dysfunction in patients with schizophrenia is due to a combination of the cognitive impairment induced by schizophrenia itself and that induced by the medications that psychiatrists prescribe. It is difficult to differentiate between the two sources, and at presen...

Experimental Use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to Treat Tinnitus in a Deaf Patient

Sarah M. Theodoroff and Robert L. Folmer

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 24, 2015

A 28-year-old deaf female patient underwent 10 sessions of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a participant in a placebo-controlled clinical trial for treatment of tinnitus. Trial participants received 2000 pulses of rTMS per session at a stimulation rate of 1 Hz. The neural target for rTMS was auditory cortex within Heschl's gyrus. The primary outcome measure was the Tinnitus ...

Retention of Finger Blood Flow against Postural Change Has the Potential to Become a New Indicator of Sympathetic Block in the Upper Limb - A Preliminary Study

Toshihiko Nakatani, Tatsuhito Miyamoto, Tatsuya Hashimoto and Yoji Saito

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 23, 2015

Increased skin temperature and decreased sweating are used to identify the adequacy of sympathetic block in the upper limb. This, however, requires a thermography device to precisely evaluate skin temperature and a diaphoremeter to measure sweating. Baroreflexes elicited by postural change induce a reduction in peripheral blood flow to sustain systemic blood pressure and cerebral blood flow. We hy...

Effect of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy on Left Ventricular Diastolic Function

Kammoun Ikram, Marrakchi Sonia, Jebri Faten and Kachboura Salem

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 23, 2015

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) improves systolic performance in Heart Failure (HF). However, the effects of CRT on Left Ventricular (LV) diastolic function were variable and not fully understood. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of cardiac resynchronization therapy on LV diastolic filing pattern and the relation between the diastolic filing pattern and the response to CR...

Electromyographic Cross-Spectral Analysis of Antagonist Muscle Coactivation

Travis W. Beck

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2015

The purpose of this study was two-fold: (1) to compare the responses for traditional EMG amplitude measures with those from the crossspectrum approach for assessing agonist-antagonist interaction, and (2) to examine changes in the agonist-antagonist interaction for the elbow flexors and extensors with increases in movement velocity. Eighteen healthy, college-aged subjects (mean SD age = 21.8 2...

A Comparison of Prostatic Acinar Adenocarcinoma Gleason 3+4 versus 4+3 in Different Laboratory Practice Settings

Celia Maria Jesuino Bittencourt, Daniel Abensur Athanazio, Andreia Carvalho dos Santos, Erica Curvelo Dantas Senna, Tania Maria Correia Silva and Luiz Antonio Rodrigues de Freitas

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2015

Objective: To evaluate Gleason 7 tumors from radical prostatectomy specimens that were stratified by 3+4 and 4+3 status, focusing on the clinical and morphologic features. Methods and results: In the first series of 20 Gleason 7 tumors processed by total embedding, cases with 4+3 status were associated with a higher proliferation index. In a second series of 106 Gleason 7 tumors processed by parti...

Prospective Analysis and Technical Recommendations for Repair of Small Ventral/Umbilical Hernias Using the Ventralex Hernia Patch

Kejia Wang and Christophe R. Berney

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 12, 2015

The aim of this study was to examine the short- and long-term clinical outcomes of the technique, and to address the possible limiting factors. Methods: Open mesh repair following strict surgical methodology was performed on 100 consecutive patients with small ventral/ umbilical hernia defects of 1-3cm in diameter between April 2007 and December 2012. Short-term clinical outcome was obtained at 2-...

Recurrent Osseous Choristoma Involving the Mandibular Buccal Vestibule: A Case Report

Curtis Gregoire, Clayton Davis, Martin Bullock and Thomas Steeves

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 19, 2015

This case report is the third ever reported of a recurrent intraoral osseous choristoma. The lesion had manifested twice in the left mandibular buccal vestibule of a 63-year-old Caucasian female. The patient was treated with wide local excision on both occasions. We believe that the lesions may have arisen as a result of previous trauma, although the exact etiology of the lesions is unknown. Inter...

The New Paradigm for the Treatment of Chronic Pancreatitis

Rainer W.G. Gruessner

Article Type: Opinion | First Published: March 10, 2015

Effective treatment of chronic pancreatitis remains one of the greatest surgical challenges to date. Th incidence of chronic pancreatitis ranges from 3 to 10 cases per 100,000 populations per year worldwide. In the United States alone, more than 50,000 hospitalizations per year are caused by this disease. Chronic pancreatitis is an inflammatory process, progressive and irreversible in nature that ...
