Correlation between Pentraxin-3 and Left Ventricular Diastolic Dysfunction in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Jie-Ru Li, Xiu-Hua Gao, Ju-Qiang Han, Wen-Yan Luo and En-Sheng Ji

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 23, 2018

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of independent dangerous factors for cardiovascular disease including heart failure. Recent studies demonstrated that left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) and pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) are early signs for development of heart failure. The objective of our study was to estimate the relation between OSA severity and LVDD and PTX-3. Sixty-six OSA patients and 25 healthy people who underwent polysomnography to diagnose OSA were enrolled. Ninety-one participant...

HLA DRB1*/DQA1*Alleles and TNF-alpha G308A Polymorphism Protect against Neuromyelitis Optica in the Cuban Population

Fernandez-de-Cossio ME, Cintado A, Nazabal M, Camacho H, Diaz T, Villarreal A, Ale M, Grass D, Cervantes-Llanos M, Pavon-Fuentes N, Benitez JV, Cabrera-Gomez JA, Diaz de la Fe A and Penton-Rol G

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 23, 2018

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a complex immune-mediated disease whose prevalence differs among ethnic groups, most likely due to genetic factors. The presence of the Human Leucocyte Antigens (HLA) extended haplotype is a risk for NMO. The tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) is believed to play a role in NMO pathogenesis. Although single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TNF-a promoter region (pTNF-a) has been shown to influence levels of TNF-a production, such an association is not evident ...

Total Ankle Replacement: Indications, Rehabilitation and Results

Marco Massobrio, Giovanni Pellicano, Valter Santilli and Lucrezia Tognolo

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 22, 2018

Even though fusion is the main form of treatment for end-stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the ankle, total ankle replacement (TAR) is increasingly being recognized as an effective alternative procedure, with favorable clinical results and improved quality of life. However, the results have been disappointing compared to those of hip and knee arthroplasty. In fact, the ankle is a more complex joint and its biomechanics and kinematics are strongly influenced by neighboring joints. The ankle joint comp...
