Genetic analysis of polymorphisms in biologically relevant candidate genes in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic variations in TIMP1, TIMP3, MMP10, and ELN genes may contribute to the pathogenesis of AAAs, and these sequence changes in combination with other risk factors could be used in the future to identify individuals who are at increased risk for developing aneurysms. Expand
Autologous Bone-Marrow Mononuclear Cell Implantation Improves Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation in Patients With Limb Ischemia
TLDR
It is suggested that autologous bone-marrow mononuclear cell (BM-MNC) implantation augments endothelium-dependent vasodilation in patients with limb ischemia. Expand
Prognostic Factors After Surgical Resection for Intrahepatic, Hilar, and Distal Cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
R0 resection and adjuvant chemotherapy may be mandatory to achieve long-term survival for patients with cholangiocarcinoma. Expand
Multiple factors predict the risk of spinal cord injury after the frozen elephant trunk technique for extended thoracic aortic disease.
TLDR
There were multiple factors predicting the risk of SCI after the FET technique and paraplegia may be prevented by avoiding deep insertion of the stent graft and by keeping blood pressure elevated after the operation. Expand
Efficacy of pulmonary vein isolation for the elimination of chronic atrial fibrillation in cardiac valvular surgery.
TLDR
Surgical ablation of the pulmonary vein orifices was effective in the treatment of chronic AF associated with mitral valve disease and intraoperative mapping may be useful in predicting the efficacy of a single pulmonary veins orifice isolation procedure. Expand
Contractile cardiac grafts using a novel nanofibrous mesh.
TLDR
An in vitro system for engineered myocardium can be matured in vitro to obtain sufficient function prior to implantation and it is conjectured that cardiac grafts with clinically relevant dimensions can be obtained by stacking CNMs and inducing vascularization with angiogenic factors. Expand
An Antecolic Roux-en Y type Reconstruction Decreased Delayed Gastric Emptying after Pylorus-Preserving Pancreatoduodenectomy
TLDR
An antecolic Roux-en Y type duodenojejunostomy could be a useful reconstruction method after PPPD to prevent the occurrence of delayed gastric emptying. Expand
Clinical analysis of results of a simple left atrial procedure for chronic atrial fibrillation.
TLDR
The efficacy of this left atrial procedure for eliminating chronic atrial fibrillation associated with mitral valve disease and atrial function for more than 12 months of follow-up is examined. Expand
Vascular function in patients with lower extremity peripheral arterial disease: a comparison of functions in upper and lower extremities.
TLDR
Assessment of vascular function in upper and lower extremities in patients with PAD and the relationship between the ankle-brachial pressure index (ABPI) and endothelial function in forearm and leg circulation suggests that LBF response to reactive hyperemia is impaired in PAD patients compared with that in control patients. Expand
Haploinsufficiency of RAD51B causes centrosome fragmentation and aneuploidy in human cells.
TLDR
It is shown that haploinsufficiency of Rad51B causes mild hypersensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, a mild reduction in sister chromatid exchange, impaired Rad51 focus formation, and an increase in chromosome aberrations, which suggest that the proper biallelic expression of RAD51B is required for the maintenance of chromosome integrity in human cells.
