Dilated cardiomyopathy and neonatal lethality in mutant mice lacking manganese superoxide dismutase
TLDR
Cytochemical analysis revealed a severe reduction in succinate dehydrogenase and aconitase activities in the heart and, to a lesser extent, in other organs, which indicates that MnSOD is required for normal biological function of tissues by maintaining the integrity of mitochondrial enzymes susceptible to direct inactivation by superoxide. Expand
Can emergency physicians identify a high mortality subgroup of patients with sepsis: role of procalcitonin
TLDR
Stepwise multivariate logistic regression analysis showed serum procalcitonin level to be a valuable marker of sepsis severity, compared with the 15 other clinical, biochemical and bacteriologic variables tested. Expand
Analgesic efficacy of orodispersible paracetamol in patients admitted to the emergency department with an osteoarticular injury
TLDR
A simple and easily applicable protocol of pain management permits the achievement of satisfactory analgesia during a patient's stay in the ED. Expand
Ventricular Catheter Systems with Subcutaneous Reservoirs (Ommaya Reservoirs) in Pediatric Patients with Brain Tumors: Infections and Other Complications.
TLDR
Complications related to ventricular catheter systems with subcutaneous reservoirs (VCSR) in pediatric patients with brain tumors are described to better identify risk factors and evaluate preventive measures such as the administration of perioperative antibiotics and the use of antimicrobial coating of catheters. Expand
Colostomy for Perianal Sepsis With Ecthyma Gangrenosum in Immunocompromised Children
TLDR
3 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia having sepsis with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in febrile neutropenia and severe perianal infections treated relatively early with a protective colostomy are described. Expand
Single- vs. Two-Stage Fowler-Stephens Orchidopexy: Are Two Operations Better than One? A Retrospective, Single-Institution Critical Analysis
TLDR
In this consecutive series there were no significant differences observed between the two procedures with regard to size, blood supply, position, or atrophy rate of the testes. Expand
Nonpalpable testes: Ultrasound and contralateral testicular hypertrophy predict the surgical access, avoiding unnecessary laparoscopy.
TLDR
Inguinal US of non-palpable testes and measurement of the contralateral testis are synergistic in predicting the surgical approach, translating into five boys needing an US of the NPT to prevent one laparoscopy. Expand
[18F]FDG uptake of axillary lymph nodes after COVID-19 vaccination in oncological PET/CT: frequency, intensity, and potential clinical impact
TLDR
FDG-avid lymphadenopathy was observed significantly more frequently in Moderna compared to patients receiving Pfizer-BioNTech-vaccines, and patients should be screened for prior COVID-19 vaccination before undergoing PET/CT. Expand
Positioning irrigation of contrast cystography for diagnosis of occult vesicoureteric reflux: association with technetium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid scans.
TLDR
The data suggest an association between PIC-VUR and severity of renal scarring, and legitimise the use of PIC cystography in children with renal Scarring due to recurrent febrile UTI but negative findings on VCUG. Expand
The role of the Lich-Gregoir procedure in refluxing duplicated collecting systems: experience from long-term follow up of 45 children.
TLDR
Performed unilaterally, common sheath LG is a safe and effective technique to cure VUR, prevent febrile UTI and maintain split renal function in duplicated systems with otherwise uncomplicated anatomy. Expand
