Improved assessment of donor organ quality at time of transplantation would help in management of potentially usable organs. The transcriptome might correlate with risk of delayed graft function (DGF) better than conventional risk factors. Microarray results of 87 consecutive implantation biopsies taken postreperfusion in 42 deceased (DD) and 45 living (LD)(More)

There are few studies that have addressed the effects of prenatal exposure of topiramate on ossification of the bones derived from the paraxial mesoderm. This study aimed to evaluate skeletal ossification of ribs and vertebrae in 20-day-old rat fetuses after maternal exposure to two therapeutic doses of topiramate. Three groups of Sprague-Dawley pregnant(More)
A case of congenital lung cyst disease is presented here. The inhalational induction of anesthesia with sevoflurane failed to ensure satisfactory intubation condition. Then, intravenous ketamine and rocuronium were given and they facilitated the intubation.
Umbilical cord prolapse (UCP) is an obstetric emergency. The objective of our study was to determine the frequency of cord prolapse, its aetiological factors and to evaluate fetal prognosis.
