Visual Impairment Contributes to Frailty among a Group of Healthy Community Dwelling Older Population

Miu Ka Ying Doris

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 30, 2018

Research studies have shown that visual ability is of considerable importance for daily living and social functioning. Loss of vision or its limitation can be hazardous to independent living and quality of life. Deficits in vision and the ability to respond to visual cues can cause incorrect sensory inputs and lead to difficulties in perceiving the geographical environment, hazards and moving stimuli....

Rhino-Orbito-Cerebral Mucormycosis in Immunocompetent Young Patient: Case Report

Rabab Taha, Talal Almteri, Nizar bahabri and Hani Almoallim

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 22, 2018

Mucormycosis is an invasive infection in immunocompromised host. It can lead to a devastating rhino-orbital-cerebral involvement with detrimental consequences. This disease is mainly caused by member of the family Mucoraceae that include Rhizopus, Rhizomucor, Mucor and Lichtheimia (formerly Absdia). This infection classically affects immunocompromised patients. The most common site of this infection in immunocompromised patients related to the pattern of the associated disease. In patients with malignancy, the lungs are the more likely to be affected, while diabetic patients are more likely to...

Cardiovascular Complications and Composition of the Intestinal Microbiome in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

EG Siegel, J Lorenzo Bermejo, I Flade and C Hasslacher

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 28, 2018

Cardiovascular complications (CVCs) are still the most frequent cause of morbidity and death in patients with type 2 diabetes. The current options for the treatment of the classic risk factors such as dyslipoproteinemia, hypertension, and diabetes have so far not been able to alter this situation to a fundamental extent, meaning that new therapeutic approaches must be identified....

Modulation of Histone Deacetylases (HDACs) Expression in Patients with and without Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: Possible Drug Targets for Treatment

Kenneth L Wiley, Edward Treadwell, Kayihura Manigaba, Beverly Word, Jarren Oates and Beverly D Lyn-Cook

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 28, 2018

There is increasing evidence that epigenetic factors may play a role in the pathogenesis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Both global and gene specific methylation is known to occur in lupus patients, as well as, changes in histone acetylation status. Histone acetylation is associated with active chromatin or activation of genes, whereas histone deacetylase (HDAC) activity is associated with silencing of genes. Therefore, HDACs have been targeted as potential therapeutic targets for a number of diseases, including lupus....

Effects of a Slashpipe Training Intervention on Postural Control Compared to Conventional Barbell Power Fitness

Nicolas Kurpiers, Teresa Rovelli, Christin Bormann and Tim Vogler

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 26, 2018

Postural control is essential to maintaining balance and stability under health-related aspects. In the past several training concepts have been recommended for the enhancement of postural control. One of these concepts is the so-called 'Slashpipe' training, which uses a pipe partly filled with liquid in order to complete exercises similar to those found in barbell power fitness programs. However, evidence for the benefits of this intervention is rare. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of a Slashpipe training intervention on balance ability....

The Metabolic Cardio-Respiratory Effects of Abdominal Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Craig E Broeder, Amanda J Salacinski, Steve Mauk and Dimitria Vandarakis

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 25, 2018

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) has been studied in athletes, healthy, and diseased populations mainly focusing on muscle strength and body composition. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the metabolic and cardiovascular effects of acute EMS at rest and steady-state walking (3.5 mph & 5% grade) in healthy adults. Thirty-eight subjects (M = 19, F = 19) volunteered and completed resting and steady-state exercise trials with and without EMS in duplicate on separate days (test-retest reliability). Energy Expenditure (EE), Ventilation (VE), respiration rate, tidal volume, VO<...

A Retrospective Study: Good Functional Outcomes are Independent of Pre-Operative Factors in Stapes Surgery for Otosclerosis

Jeremy Goh Chin Guan and Yeo Seng Beng

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 28, 2018

Otosclerosis is a disease of the temporal bone that affects the inner and middle ear. It is characterized by a pathological pleomorphic replacement of normal bone with spongiotic or sclerotic bone. Otosclerosis has traditionally been presumptively diagnosed by characteristic clinical findings on medical history, physical examination and audiology testing....

Isolated Ankyloblepharon Filiforme Adnatum in a Newborn

Saroj Gupta and Harsha Saxena

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 26, 2018

We report a case of a rare congenital eyelid abnormality, ankyloblepharon filiforme adnatum, in an otherwise healthy male neonate, born to healthy parents out of non-consanguineous marriage. Newborn presented with a single band of tissue connecting left upper and lower eyelid, resulting in limited palpebral aperture opening. Antenatal history was normal. The baby was operated on the seventh day of life under local anesthesia. The eyelid band was excised at the level of each lid margin resulting in normal eye opening....
