Fracture of the Femoral Neck: SOIB Method

Rinaldo Giancola, Lorenzo Marchesi and Guido Antonini

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2015

Treating fractures of the proximal femur remains a controversial problem. Fractures of the femoral neck occur almost exclusively amongst the elderly (fractures due to bone frailty associated with osteoporosis), whereas fractures in younger people are due to high-energy trauma. The current treatment trend in clinical practice and the literature for these fractures is prosthetic replacement. In this article the authors describe the case of an 81-year-old woman who underwent osteosynthesis due to a left subcapital fracture (Garden II) using the SOIB method. The operation consisted in stabilising ...

Screening For Depressive Symptoms at the Beginning of Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation by Assessed Perceived Risk Factors by Patients

Saeid Komasi and Mozhgan Saeidi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 31, 2015

Objectives:The screening for depressive symptoms at the beginning of outpatient cardiac rehabilitation (CR) can significantly increase the quality and quantity of clinical care. This study investigated the degree of depressive symptoms in CR patients according to what they perceived to be the underlying causes of their disease. Methods:The administrative data for this cross-sectional study was obtained from the database of the CR department at Imam Ali hospital in the city of Kermanshah in Iran. Demographic and clinical information for 602 patients was gathered between April 2006 and April 201...

Massive Urinothorax; A Rare Complication after Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy

Ibrahim Halil Bozkurt, Salih Polat, Ismail Gulden, Serkan Yarimoglu, Ozgu Aydogdu, Tarik Yonguc and Volkan Sen

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 22, 2015

The urinothorax or collection of urine in the pleural space is a rare complication following percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). We present a case of massive urinothorax who had undergone PCNL. Two weeks after PCNL, the patient was admitted to the emergency clinic with dyspnea, chest pain and fever. Thorax and abdomen computed tomography (CT) revealed massive pleural effusion on the left hemithorax and a stone located at the proximal segment of left ureter. A chest tube and a ureteral DJ stent was placed for drainage. In conclusion, the patients who underwent PCNL via intercostal access and h...

'Dairy-Free' Dietary Substitute, Abdominal Pain, and Weight Loss

Margaret R. Coleman and Mary Thoesen Coleman

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 22, 2015

A 62 year-old Caucasian female experienced cramping abdominal pain of two months' duration associated with 12 pound unintentional weight loss. Laboratory workup, computed tomography scan of abdomen and pelvis and colonoscopy revealed no etiology. Elimination of carrageenan-containing almond milk from her diet which she had substituted for cow's milk several months prior resulted in stabilization of weight and resolution of symptoms. Conclusion:Certain food substitutions for dairy products may expose patients to additives like carrageenan, for which there is early evidence of its contribution t...

Patellar Tendon Rupture. Repair with Suture Anchors and Percutaneous Reinforcement with Semitendinosus and Gracilis Tendons: Two Cases

Manuel Godino

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 22, 2015

Patellar tendon disruptions are relatively uncommon knee injuries compared to fractures, ligaments sprains, or meniscal tears [1]. These tears may be traumatic or they may occur spontaneously in patients with other underlying diseases such as diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, steroid medication or kidney failure. MRI can also be useful, by providing additional information such as the location of the rupture. We reported one case of neglected patellar disruption and the other case was traumatic. Several techniques have been used to relocate the patella to its anatomic position and repair...

Long-Segment Slide Tracheo-Bronchoplasty (LSTB) with Contralateral Lung Agenesis: Case Report and Review of the Literature

Daniel J. Weber, Mark D.Rodefeld, Bruce H. Matt and John W. Brown

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 18, 2015

The management of long-segment tracheal stenosis (LSTS) can be quite challenging, particularly in the presence of other pulmonary anomalies. We present a complicated case of LSTS and left bronchial stenosis in a 4-month-old infant with a congenitally absent right lung. This case emphasize that a slide tracheo-bronchoplasty (STB) in the setting of congenital absence of the contralateral lung is complicated but can be performed with reasonable results....

Hypothesizing Balancing Endorphinergic and Glutaminergic Systems to Treat and Prevent Relapse to Reward Deficiency Behaviors: Coupling D-Phenylalanine and N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) as a Novel Therapeutic Modality

Kenneth Blum, Marcelo Febo, Claudia Fahlke, Trevor Archer, U Berggren, Zsolt Demetrovics, Kristina Dushaj and Rajendra D. Badgaiyan

Article Type: Hypothesis | First Published: December 17, 2015

In this hypothesis, we are proposing that the combination of D-Phenylalanine and N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) - two substances that have never been utilized together - is an important advancement to treat Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS) [1]. The key motivation for this notion is that the combination will have synergistic attributes to induce dopamine release as well as dopamine stabilization at the brain reward circuitry via different mechanisms. We hypothesize that preferential release of Dopamine, for example, at the Nucleus Accumbens (NAc) along with glutaminergic homeostasis induces not only...

Enhancing the Potency of Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Tissue Regeneration

Sylvia Muller, Kenny Dalgarno, Anne Dickinson, Xiao-nong Wang and Lindsay Nicholson

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: November 27, 2015

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult stromal cells with multi-lineage differentiation potential and immunomodulatory properties. They can be isolated relatively easily from several tissues, including bone marrow and adipose tissue and can be expanded ex vivo to yield the large numbers required for a therapeutic dose. As such, MSCs are considered a promising cell source that can be used in cellular therapy for a wide range of diseases, including bone and cartilage defects. However, despite the huge number of clinical trials utilising MSCs, their clinical application has yielded variable resu...

Dietary Iron Intake and Hemoglobin Concentration in College Athletes in Different Sports

Takako Fujii, Yuka Okumura, Etsuko Maeshima and Koji Okamura

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 11, 2015

Iron-deficiency anemia is relatively prevalent among endurance athletes. It is therefore recommended that athletes consume a greater amount of iron. Resistance exercise has been shown to alleviate anemic symptoms, suggesting that the prevalence of anemia may vary among athletes that participate in different sporting events and that their iron requirements may differ according to their sports. The present study investigated the relationship between iron intake and anemia in college athletes in different sports. A total of 97 college athletes who participated in various sports including sprintin...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 04, 2015

Research carried out over the past few decades has shown that urinary incontinence is observed among physically active women, including those involved in professional high impact sports. The purpose of this preliminary study was to investigate the prevalence of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and assess its risk factors among Iranian female athletes. A total of 195 volunteers comprising women athletes aged between 16.5 and 32.5 years....
