INTRODUCTION The relationship between admission time and intensive care unit (ICU) mortality is inconclusive and influenced by various factors. This study aims to estimate the effect of admission time on ICU outcomes in a tertiary teaching hospital in China by propensity score matching (PSM) and stratified analysis. METHODS A total of 2,891 consecutive(More)
AIM To investigate the potential role of perioperative nutrition in reducing complications and mortality in malnourished gastrointestinal cancer patients. METHODS Four hundred and sixty-eight elective moderately or severely malnourished surgical patients with gastric or colorectal cancers defined by the subjective global assessment (SGA) were randomly(More)
The activities of three N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases ( GnT III, GnT IV and GnT V ) were determined in 10 samples of pancreatic carcinoma (PCa) and compared with those in 9 samples of normal pancreatic tissue (NP). It was found that the specific activities of GnT III , GnT IV and GnT V increased in all of the PCa samples. GnT III increased most(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate enhanced recovery after surgery(ERAS) protocol in colorectal surgery. METHODS From september 2006 to February 2007, 74 patients with colorectal cancer were randomly assigned to ERAS group and control group. The stress index, nutrition and metabolism index, intraoperative index and postoperative index were evaluated. RESULTS Six(More)
AIM To examine whether glutamine prevents the injury to the intestinal mucosa after intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) in rats. METHODS Thirty male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: a standard parenteral nutrition (PN) group (n = 10); an I/R-PN group (n = 10); an I/R-glutamine enriched PN (I/R-Gln) group (n = 10). The superior(More)
AIM To evaluate the effects of bowel rehabilitation and combined trophic therapy on intestinal adaptation in short bowel patients. METHODS Thirty-eight patients with severe short-bowel syndrome (SBS) were employed in the present study, whose average length of jejunum-ileum was 35.8+/-21.2 cm. The TPN treatment was initiated early to attain positive(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic power of n-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in sepsis is disputable and unstable among different models. We attempt to evaluate the prognostic potential of NT-proBNP in combination with the sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) score in sepsis. METHODS In this retrospective study, 100 consecutive sepsis(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of parenteral glutamine and growth hormone supplementation on gut adaptation for patients with short bowel syndrome. METHODS Twenty-six patients [male 15, female 11, aged (39 +/- 23) years] with short bowel syndrome received parenteral nutrition (PN) 3-52 months after surgical resection. The median length of remnant small(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the enhanced recovery program after surgery (ERAS) with conventional perioperative management in patients undergoing radical resection for colorectal cancer. METHODS The ERAS protocol included a combination of evidence-based and consensus methodology. A total of 597 consecutive patients undergoing elective colorectal resection were(More)
