In this study we evaluate the effect of eight cord-care regimens on cord separation time and other secondary outcomes: omphalitis, sepsis, death, cord bleeding, compliance, satisfaction or dissatisfaction with regard to the type of treatment, umbilical cord colonization--in 1,535 healthy term infants. The eight cord-care regimens studied were: 70% alcohol,(More)
CONTEXT GH excess causes an increase in bone turnover, but the consequences in terms of skeletal fragility have long been uncertain due to the heterogeneity of studies dealing with this topic. OBJECTIVE We conducted a meta-analysis of studies examining the effects of acromegaly on bone turnover, bone mineral density (BMD), and fractures. Furthermore, we(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) efficacy of travoprost monotherapy in primary open-angle glaucoma patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 36 previously untreated primary open-angle glaucoma patients were enrolled in this 5-year study. Patients underwent an untreated 24-hour IOP evaluation.(More)
Predicting the risk of sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis is important for clinical decision-making in the setting of early breast cancer (EBC). This study is aimed to identify tumor and patient characteristics that influenced the SLN metastatic involvement, with a focus on luminal subtypes. An observational study including women treated for EBC from 2005(More)
IMPORTANCE To date, only a few studies have directly compared nonpenetrating surgery (NPS) and trabeculectomy (TE). Therefore, there is no strong evidence as to which surgical technique leads to the best results in terms of ocular hypotensive effect and safety. OBJECTIVE To compare the hypotensive effect and safety of NPS and TE in terms of intraocular(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effect of prostaglandin analogs (PGAs) administered in combination with β-blockers. METHODS We searched the Medline and Embase databases for randomized trials comparing topical therapies with PGAs and timolol administered as monotherapy (Mt), or in fixed (FC) or unfixed combinations (UC) to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate CEUS for the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases and its application in the clinical routine with a focus on the value of CEUS in ductal pancreatic carcinoma and its use for the differentiation of neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS All prospective and retrospective studies published in any language by March 6,(More)
OBJECTIVE Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) is a valid treatment option for women with locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC). This study aims to evaluate the impact of sociodemographic factors, clinical factors, and NACT regimens on survival endpoints. The role of pathological response to NACT as a surrogate endpoint of survival was also assessed. (More)
PURPOSE To investigate topographic optic disc changes after surgical intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction in adults with open angle glaucoma (OAG). METHODS Optic discs of patients with advanced primary open angle or exfoliation glaucoma were imaged using optical coherence tomography within 1 week before trabeculectomy. Patients were rescanned 1 week, 1(More)
