The Aberrant Right Subclavian Artery (Arteria Lusoria): The Morphological and Clinical Aspects of One of the Most Important Variations—A Systematic Study of 141 Reports
TLDR
In conclusion, compression of adjacent structures by an aberrant right subclavian artery needs to be differentiated from other conditions presenting dysphagia, dyspnea, retrosternal pain, cough, and weight loss. Expand
Clinical application of 3D pre-bent titanium implants for orbital floor fractures.
TLDR
It is financially viable to build anatomical models, on the basis of CT studies, that can be used in the repair of orbital floor fractures in patients with facial trauma, using rapid prototyping. Expand
Effect of vitamin K2 on progression of atherosclerosis and vascular calcification in nondialyzed patients with chronic kidney disease stages 3-5.
TLDR
A 270-day course of vitamin K2 administration in patients with CKD stages 3-5 may reduce the progression of atherosclerosis, but does not significantly affect the progressionof calcification. Expand
Plasma Desphospho-Uncarboxylated Matrix Gla Protein as a Marker of Kidney Damage and Cardiovascular Risk in Advanced Stage of Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
High dp-ucMGP level, reflecting a poor vitamin K status seems to be associated with kidney damage and may be also a marker of cardiovascular risk in CKD patients. Expand
Detection of transplant renal artery stenosis in the early postoperative period with analysis of parenchymal perfusion with ultrasound contrast agent.
TLDR
Contrast-enhanced ultrasound allows for quick and non-invasive assessment of parenchymal kidney graft perfusion and enables confirmation of TRAS diagnosis in the early postoperative period and helps assess the degree of stenosis. Expand
The Epidemiological, Morphological, and Clinical Aspects of the Cervical Ribs in Humans
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the newest literature concerning the morphology, embryology, clinical image, and therapeutic methods of the cervical ribs in the humans as early identification of cervical ribs may prevent life-threatening complications. Expand
Hand exercise test for the assessment of endothelium-dependent vasodilatation in subjects with type 1 diabetes.
TLDR
The hand exercise test could be a useful alternative tool for endothelial function assessment, especially in type 1 diabetes subjects, and results in a greater difference in vessel diameter before and after the test stimulus, which might substantially improve its feasibility. Expand
Serum Osteoprotegerin Is a Predictor of Progression of Atherosclerosis and Coronary Calcification in Hemodialysis Patients
TLDR
The plasma level of OPG could serve as a surrogate marker of progression of atherosclerosis and calcification in patients with end-stage renal disease and therefore, the serum OPG may be a candidate biomarker of cardiovascular complications and poor outcome among dialysis patients. Expand
Pancreatic cyst fluid analysis for differential diagnosis between benign and malignant lesions
TLDR
P promising results for CEA and CA 19-9 have been demonstrated, however, the clinical value of these molecules must be confirmed and Cyst fluid analysis may prove a safe and useful adjunct for the differential diagnosis of pancreatic cystic lesions. Expand
Supplementation of antipsychotic treatment with sarcosine – GlyT1 inhibitor – causes changes of glutamatergic 1NMR spectroscopy parameters in the left hippocampus in patients with stable schizophrenia
TLDR
This is the first study showing that a pharmacological intervention in schizophrenia, particularly augmentation of the antypsychotic treatment with sarcosine, may reverse the pathological increase in glutamatergic transmission in the hippocampus. Expand
