OBJECTIVE To identify predictive factors for unsuccessful induction of labor within 24hours after dinoprostone insertion in post-term pregnancy with unfavorable cervix. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 325 singleton pregnancies with a diagnosis of post-term pregnancy and unfavorable cervix (Bishop score<6) during the period January(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have evaluated differences between rosacea subtypes in epidemiological associations and clinical features. The natural history of rosacea is unknown and progression between subtypes has been implied but not formally evaluated. OBJECTIVES To assess associations between the four rosacea subtypes [erythematotelangiectatic (ETR),(More)
Hypernatremia exerts its main effect on the brain through the osmotic gradient it creates on either side of the blood brain barrier, which is impermeable to sodium. This generates a transfer of water from the intracellular to the vascular sector leading to temporary cell shrinkage. Osmoregulation permits cerebral cells to accumulate osmoactive molecules in(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated whether cardiac output measured with pulse wave transit time (esCCO, Nihon Kohden, Tokyo, Japan) is able to track changes in cardiac output induced by an increase in preload (volume expansion/passive leg-raising) or by changes in vasomotor tone (variation in norepinephrine dosage) in critically ill patients. METHODS Eighty(More)
BACKGROUND Post-acne atrophic scarring is a major concern for which standardized outcome measures are needed. Traditionally, this type of scar has been classified based on shape; but survey of practicing dermatologists has shown that atrophic scar morphology has not been well enough defined to allow good agreement in clinical classification. Reliance on(More)
Background Adjuvant treatment in resected stage I non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is generally not recommended. Pazopanib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor of VEGFR-1/2/3 and PDGFR-α/β. We explored the feasibility and efficacy of adjuvant pazopanib in this population. Patients and methods In this double-blind phase II/III trial, patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE Bispectral index (BIS) may be used in traumatic brain-injured patients (TBI) with intractable intracranial hypertension to adjust barbiturate infusion but it is obtained through a unilateral frontal electrode. The objective of this study was to evaluate differences in BIS between hemispheres in two groups: unilateral frontal (UFI) and diffuse (DI)(More)
