The epidemiology of osteosarcoma.
TLDR
The overall 5-year survival rate for osteosarcoma is 68%, without significant gender difference, and the age of the patient is correlated with the survival, with the poorest survival among older patients. Expand
The Trigemino-cardiac Reflex: An Update of the Current Knowledge
TLDR
From the experimental findings, the TCR represents an expression of a central reflex leading to rapid cerebrovascular vasodilatation generated from excitation of oxygen-sensitive neurons in the rostral ventro-lateral medulla oblongata, which may be adjusted in a way that augments cerebral perfusion. Expand
The emerging spectrum of cardiopulmonary pathology of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): Report of 3 autopsies from Houston, Texas, and review of autopsy findings from other United States cities
TLDR
The autopsy findings support the concept that the pathogenesis of severe COVID-19 disease involves direct viral-induced injury of multiple organs, including heart and lungs, coupled with the consequences of a procoagulant state with coagulopathy. Expand
A systematic review of therapeutical approaches in bisphosphonates-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ).
TLDR
The overall outcome results and results for every disease stage were the highest when patients were treated with extensive surgery or extensive laser assisted surgery and different therapeutical approaches for BRONJ were identified. Expand
Adult survivors of childhood cancer and unemployment
TLDR
The report of de Boer et al describing the risk of unemployment of adult survivors of childhood cancer compared with healthy controls is supportive of the findings of Eiser et al, who could not demonstrate increased deficits in measures of anxiety, depression, or self-esteem in long-term survivors when compared with matched controls. Expand
Psychosocial and functional outcomes in long‐term survivors of osteosarcoma: A comparison of limb‐salvage surgery and amputation
TLDR
The psychosocial and functional outcomes in osteosarcoma survivors after limb‐salvage surgery and amputation are compared to hypothesized there to be neither psychossocial nor functional outcome differences between groups. Expand
Medial Fibula Transport with the Ilizarov Frame to Treat Massive Tibial Bone Loss
TLDR
The Ilizarov frame for ipsilateral fibular gradual transport is a reasonable alternative for limb salvage in patients with massive tibial bone loss, and all patients were satisfied with the results and none thought amputation would have been a better treatment. Expand
Treatment strategies for complex fractures of the tibial plateau with external circular fixation and limited internal fixation.
TLDR
The authors' hybrid Ilizarov method combined with minimal internal fixation enables excellent to good results in most cases of complex tibial plateau fractures. Expand
Maternal smoking and sudden infant death syndrome: epidemiological study related to pathology
TLDR
A significant relation was found between maternal smoke and brainstem alterations and the central autonomic nervous system revealed, in 78 cases of the SIDS group, the following anomalies: hypodevelopment of the arcuate nucleus, somatostatin positive hypoglossus nucleus, tyrosine hydroxylase negativity in the locus coeruleus, gliosis, and hypoplasia of the hypog losses. Expand
The etiology of osteosarcoma.
TLDR
Although extremely rare, osteosarcoma has occasionally been observed in several members of the same family and no other clinical abnormalities in the proband or the affected members were reported, Pathologic examination of the tumors revealed no unusual features and patients generally responded to conventional therapy.
