ABSTRACT

In the outbreak of COVID-19,triage procedures based on epidemiology were implemented in a local hospital in Changsha to control the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and avoid healthcare-associated infection.This re-trospective study analyzed the data collected during the triage period and found that COVID-19 patients were en-riched 7 folds into the Section A designated for patients with obvious epidemiological history.On the other side,nearly triple amounts of visits were received at the Section B for patients without obvious epidemiological history.8 COVID-19 cases were spotted out of 247 suspected patients.More than 50%of the suspected patients were submi-tted to multiple rounds of nucleic acid analysis for SARS-CoV-2 infection.Of the 239 patients who were diagnosed as negative of the virus infection,188 were successfully revisited and none was reported as COVID-19 case.Of the 8 COVID-19 patients,3 were confirmed only after multiple rounds of nucleic acid analysis.Besides comorbidities,delayed sharing of epidemiological history added complexity to the diagnosis in practice.The triaging experience and strategy will be helpful for the control of infectious diseases in the future.

ABSTRACT

Air pollution is a serious global public health problem. Air pollutants, especially fine particulate matter (PM2.5), are associated with increased risks of various diseases. In recent years, studies have confirmed that PM2.5 is closely related to chronic kidney disease, secondary kidney disease, and end-stage renal disease. This review summarized the effects of PM2.5 and its components on kidney diseases, and the potential mechanism of kidney injury induced by PM2.5 exposure from the aspects of inflammatory injury and oxidative stress, renal hemodynamic changes, and DNA damage and methylation, aiming to provide an insight for further mechanism research and the prevention and control of air pollution-induced kidney damage.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Through the use of high-density polyethylene implants in adults with cleft lip and palate nasal deformities and abnormal functions, to evaluate the clinical effect of postoperative patients on improving nasal shape and symptoms. Methods: A retrospective study of 12 patients with nasal deformities after cleft lip and palate surgery in the Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai JiaoTong University School of Medicine from January 2018 to January 2022 was completed, including 7 males and 5 females, with the age ranging from 18 to 29 years. All the patients underwent nasal deformity correction, and nasal septum correction was performed if necessary. High-density polyethylene implants (MEDPOR/Su-Por) were used intraoperatively. Follow-up for at least 6 months was performed to measure the relevant appearance indicators and subjective Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores, and to compare the clinical effects before and after surgery. SPSS 22.0 software was used for statistical analysis. Results: Before and after surgery, the average VAS score of nasal obstruction decreased by (4.83±0.94) points; the average VAS score of appearance satisfaction increased by (3.92±1.08) points; the height of nasal columella was increased by (1.79±0.78)mm; the height of nasal tip was increased by (2.79±1.50)mm; the height of ipsilateral nostril was increased by (1.83±0.62)mm; the width of the ipsilateral nasal floor was reduced by (0.42±0.47)mm. All of above were statistically significant (all P<0.05). Conclusion: High-density polyethylene implants can effectively improve the shape and function of the nose in operations related to cleft lip and palate nasal deformity and abnormal functions, and are an ideal synthetic material.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To study the risk factors of secondary hydrocephalus after severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in preterm infants for prevention and early identification of post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH).Methods:From June 2013 to June 2021, preterm infants with severe IVH admitted to our hospital were retrospectively analyzed. They were assigned into PHH group and non-PHH group. Rank sum test or chi-square test was used for comparison between the two groups and multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to analyze the risk factors of PHH in preterm infants.Results:A total of 246 preterm infants with severe IVH were enrolled, including 68 cases (27.6%) in the PHH group and 178 cases (72.4%) in the non-PHH group. Multivariate logistic stepwise regression analysis showed that male gender ( OR=2.014, 95% CI 1.063-3.817), gestational age ≤30 week ( OR=2.240, 95% CI 1.210-4.146), 5-min Apgar score ≤5 ( OR=3.980, 95% CI 1.483-10.685), placental abruption ( OR=2.940, 95% CI 1.324-6.531) were independent risk factors for PHH in preterm infants and thrombocytopenia was the protective factor for PHH in preterm infants ( OR=0.305, 95% CI 0.147-0.632). The incidence of moderate thrombocytopenia in non-PHH group was significantly higher than PHH group ( P<0.05). No significant differences existed in the incidences of mild and severe thrombocytopenia between the two groups ( P>0.05). Conclusions:Male gender, gestational age ≤30 week, 5-min Apgar score ≤5, placental abruption are risk factors for PHH in premature infants with severe IVH and moderate thrombocytopenia has protective effects.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To study the risk factors for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in very low birth weight infants (VLBWIs).Methods:From October 2020 to December 2021, VLBWIs with gestational age(GA) ≤32 weeks admitted to the neonatal department of our hospital were retrospectively studied. According to the occurrence of ROP, they were assigned into ROP group and non-ROP group. The clinical data of the two groups were compared and the risk factors of ROP in VLBWI were analyzed.Results:A total of 251 VLBWIs were enrolled, including 60 cases (23.9%) in ROP group and 191 (76.1%) in non-ROP group. The GA and birth weight (BW) of ROP group were significantly lower than non-ROP group [28(26,30) w vs. 29(28,31) w, 1 035(840,1 285) g vs. 1 260(1 110,1 380) g, respectively, all P<0.001]. The ROP group had longer duration of oxygen therapy [42.0(26.0, 53.5) d vs. 24.0(18.0, 34.0) d], higher incidences of blood transfusion [2.5(1.0, 3.0) times vs. 2.0 (1.0, 2.0) times] and hyperglycemia (80.0% vs. 16.8%), higher average [(5.6±0.5) mmol/L vs. (5.1±0.5) mmol/L] and peak [10.4(7.8,13.2) mmol/L vs. 6.5(6.1,6.8) mmol/L] blood glucose levels in the first week than the non-ROP group (all P<0.001). Multivariate analysis showed that longer duration of oxygen therapy ( OR=1.047, 95% CI 1.008-1.087, P=0.018) and higher peak blood glucose level in the first week ( OR=1.268, 95% CI 1.092-1.474, P=0.002) were the independent risk factors for ROP. Conclusions:Longer duration of oxygen therapy and higher peak of blood glucose level in the first week are risk factors for ROP in VLBWIs.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare the dwelling time and complications of low lying umbilical venous catheterization (UVC) in preterm infants with that of central UVC. Methods: This was a prospective cohort study. A total of 3 020 preterm infants from 44 neonatal intensive care units (NICU) who had UVC inserted from October 2019 to August 2021 were enrolled. Demographic and general baseline data, dwelling time of UVC and reasons for removal, complications and their occurrence time were collected. According to the position of the catheter tip, the preterm infants were divided into low lying UVC group (insertion depth of 3-5 cm) and central UVC group (the catheter tip was close to the entrance of right atrium, or at the 8th-9th thoracic vertebra level). The Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare the dwelling time and incidence of complications (cases/1 000 catheter days), and the independent t test and Chi-square test were used to compare the characteristics between the 2 groups. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to analyze the optimal cut-off value of UVC dwelling time. Results: Among the included 3 020 preterm infants, 1 624 (53.8%) were males, the gestational age was 29.9 (28.4, 31.6) weeks, the birth weight was (1 264±301) g, and 2 172 (71.9%) premature babies had central UVC. There were no significant differences in the proportion of males, the gestational age and the birth weight of neonates between the 2 groups (all P>0.05). There were also no significant differences in the rate of maternal history, PPROM>18 hours, chorioamnionitis, antenatal antibacterial angents exposure and antibacterial angents usage through UVC (all P>0.05). The dwelling time of central UVC was longer than that of low lying UVC (7 (6, 10) vs. 4 (3, 7) days, U=23.42, P<0.001). The complication incidence of central and low lying UVC were 20.0 and 70.8 cases/1 000 catheter days, respectively. The top 3 complications of central UVC were occlusion, catheter tip migration, and CLABSI (9.3, 3.5, 3.0 cases/1 000 catheter days). The top 3 complications of low lying UVC were catheter occlusion, CLABSI, and catheter tip migration (45.8, 6.3, 5.4 cases/1 000 catheter days). The ROC curve of UVC dwelling time and complications showed that the cut-off values ​​of central UVC and low lying UVC were 6.5 and 4.5 days, respectively. The 2 groups both showed a trend of increases in the 3 complications with the prolonged dwelling time. Cox regression analysis showed that the overall difference in the proportion of occlusion between the central UVC and low lying UVC groups was statistically significant (χ2=30.18, P=0.024). There were both no significant differences in catheter tip migration and CLABSI (both P>0.05). Conclusions: The most common UVC complication in preterm infants is occlusion. It is not recommended to keep a low lying UVC for longer than 4.5 days. During the whole dwelling period, a close monitoring for UVC complications is required.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the relationship between the levels of selenium, iron and copper in cord blood of neonates and the risk of congenital heart disease (CHD), and analyze their interaction effects. Methods: The subjects were obtained from the birth cohort in Lanzhou area established from 2010 to 2012. A baseline survey was conducted in the first trimester, and the follow-up was conducted in the second trimester, third trimester and 42 days after delivery. The umbilical vein blood was collected from newborns at delivery, and information on their birth outcomes was extracted from medical records. A nested case-control study was used to select 97 neonates with CHD newly diagnosed by echocardiography as the case group, and 194 neonates were selected as the control group by 1∶2 matching according to their mother's age, block and CHD onset time. Inductively coupled ion mass spectrometry was used to detect the concentrations of selenium, iron and copper in neonatal cord blood. The element exposure was categorized into three groups, the low, medium and high concentrations, according to the quartiles Q1 and Q3 of selenium, iron and copper concentrations in the control group. The association between cord blood selenium, iron and copper concentrations and CHD was analyzed by conditional logistic regression model using medium concentration as the reference standard. The association of their interactions with CHD was analyzed by a phase multiplication model. Results: The M (Q1, Q3) concentration of neonatal cord blood copper was 746.12 (467.48, 759.74) μg/L in the case group and 535.69 (425.21, 587.79) μg/L in the control group, with a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P<0.05). After adjustment for confounders, logistic regression models showed that the risk of CHD development was increased in neonates with either high copper in cord blood (OR=4.062, 95%CI: 2.013-8.199) or high copper combined with high iron (OR=3.226, 95%CI: 1.343-7.750). No correlation was observed between selenium and iron concentrations and the development of CHD in neonates. There was a multiplicative interaction between copper and iron in cord blood on the risk of developing CHD (OR=1.303, 95%CI: 1.056-1.608). Conclusion: There is a multiplicative interaction between iron and copper elements. The high copper and the high copper combined with high iron in umbilical cord blood are risk factors for neonatal CHD.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#Diabetic kidney disease is one of the most serious complications of diabetes mellitus (DM), and it is a main cause for chronic kidney disease and end-stage kidney disease (ESRD). It is important to find out the factors that cause the progression of renal function. The study aims to explore the relationship between serum uric acid (SUA) trajectory and the progression of renal function in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).@*METHODS@#A total of 846 patients with T2DM, who were admitted to the Department of Nephrology and Endocrinology, the Third Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, from January 2009 to December 2021 and met the criteria of baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)≥60 mL/(min·1.73 m2), were selected as the research subjects. The SUA data of multiple measurements were collected and identified as different SUA trajectories by group-based trajectory modeling (GBTM). According to the SUA trajectories, the patients were divided into a low trajectory group (105 cases), a middle trajectory group (396 cases), a middle high trajectory group (278 cases), and a high trajectory group (67 cases). Cox regression analysis was used to examine the effect of SUA trajectory on the progression of renal function in patients with T2DM. Subgroup analysis was performed by sex, age, course of disease, body mass index (BMI) and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c).@*RESULTS@#The median follow-up was 4.8 years. At the end of follow-up, 158 patients had different degrees of decline in renal function. After adjusting for multiple confounding factors by Cox regression analysis, the risks of eGFR<60 mL/(min·1.73 m2), eGFR reduction rate≥50%, serum creatinine (Scr) doubling and composite endpoint (eGFR reduction rate≥50%, Scr doubling or ESRD) in the high trajectory group were significantly higher than those in the low trajectory group, with HR of 3.84 (95% CI 1.83 to 8.05), 6.90 (95% CI 2.27 to 20.96), 6.29 (95% CI 2.03 to 19.52), and 8.04 (95% CI 2.68 to 24.18), respectively. There was no significant difference in the risk of ESRD among the above 4 groups (all P>0.05). Subgroup analysis showed that: compared with the low trajectory group, the risks of eGFR<60 mL/(min·1.73 m2) in patients with high trajectory in the subgroup of male, female, age<65 years, course of disease<10 years, BMI≥24 kg/m2 and HbA1c≥7% were increased (all P<0.05). The SUA trajectory had no interaction with sex, age, course of disease, BMI and HbA1c (all interactive P>0.05).@*CONCLUSIONS@#The high SUA trajectory increases the risk for progression of renal function in patients with T2DM. Long-term longitudinal changes of SUA should be paid attention to.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#Farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand activated transcription factors and belongs to bile acid receptor. Studies have shown that the expression of FXR in renal tissue can reduce renal injury via regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism, inhibition of inflammatory response, reduction of oxidative stress and renal fibrosis. However, it is unclear whether FXR is involved in autophagy in renal diseases. This study aims to investigate the role of FXR in cisplatin-induced acute renal injury and whether its mechanism is related to autophagy regulation.@*METHODS@#Twelve male WT or FXR-KO mice at 12 weeks were randomly divided into a WT group, a WT+cisplatin group, a FXR-KO group, and a FXR-KO+cisplatin group, with 6 mice in each group. The WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were intraperitoneally injected with cisplatin (20 mg/kg), and the WT group and the FXR-KO group were intraperitoneally injected with equal volume of cisplatin solvent. Seventy-two hours later, the mice were killed and blood and renal tissue samples were collected. The levels of SCr and BUN were detected by immunoturbidimetry. After the staining, the pathological changes of renal tissue were observed under optical microscope. The protein levels of LC3 and p62 were detected by Western blotting and immunohistochemistry. The clearance of damaged mitochondria and the accumulation of lysosomal substrate were observed under electron microscope. The apoptosis of renal tubular epithelial cells was detected by TUNEL.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the WT group or the FXR-KO group, both SCr and BUN levels in the WT+cisplatin group or the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were significantly increased (P<0.01 or P<0.001), and SCr and BUN levels in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were significantly higher than those in the WT+cisplatin group (both P<0.05). Under the light microscope, there were no obvious pathological changes in the renal tissue of mice in the WT group and the FXR-KO group. Both the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group had vacuolar or granular degeneration of renal tubular epithelial cells, flat cells, lumen expansion, brush edge falling off, and even exposed basement membrane and tubular formation. The scores of renal tubular injury in the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were significantly higher than those in the WT group and the FXR-KO group, respectively (both P<0.001), and the score in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group was significantly higher than that in the WT+cisplatin group (P<0.05). Under the transmission electron microscope, the mitochondria of mouse tubular epithelial cell in the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group was swollen, round, vacuolated, cristae broken or disappeared; the lysosome was uneven and high-density clumps, and the change was more obvious in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group. Western blotting showed that the ratio of LC3-II to LC3-I was decreased and the expression of p62 was increased in the WT+cisplatin group compared with the WT group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group compared with FXR-KO group (P<0.05 or P<0.01); compared with the FXR-KO group, the ratio of LC3-II to LC3-I was decreased and the expression of p62 was increased significantly in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group (both P<0.05). Immunohistochemistry results showed that the expression of total LC3 and p62 in renal cortex of the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group was increased significantly, especially in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group. TUNEL results showed that the mice in the WT group and the FXR-KO group had negative staining or only a few apoptotic tubular epithelial cells, and the number of apoptotic cells in the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were increased. The apoptosis rates of renal tubular epithelial cells in the WT+cisplatin group and the FXR-KO+cisplatin group were significantly higher than those in the WT group and the FXR-KO group, respectively (both P<0.001), and the apoptosis rate in the FXR-KO+cisplatin group was significantly higher than that in the WT+cisplatin group (P<0.05).@*CONCLUSIONS@#Knockout of FXR gene aggravates cisplatin induced acute renal injury, and its mechanism may be related to inhibiting autophagy and promoting apoptosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To provide reference and evidence for clinical application of neoadjuvant immunotherapy in patients with colorectal cancer through multicenter large-scale analysis based on real-world data in China. Methods: This was a retrospective multicenter case series study. From January 2017 to October 2021, data of 94 patients with colorectal cancer who received neoadjuvant immunotherapy in Peking University Cancer Hospital (55 cases), Union Hospital of Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology (19 cases), Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center (13 cases) and Changhai Hospital of Navy Medical University (7 cases) were retrospectively collected, including 48 males and 46 females. The median age was 58 years. Eighty-one cases were rectal cancer and 13 cases were colon cancer (2 cases of double primary colon cancer). Twelve cases were TNM staging II and 82 cases were stage III. Forty-six cases were well differentiated, 37 cases were moderately differentiated and 11 cases were poorly differentiated. Twenty-six patients (27.7%) with mismatch repair defects (dMMR) and microsatellite instability (MSI-H) were treated with immunotherapy alone, mainly programmed cell death protein-1 (PD-1); sixty-eight cases (72.3%) with mismatch repair proficient (pMMR) and microsatellite stability (MSS) were treated with immune combined with neoadjuvant therapy, mainly CapeOx (capecitabine+oxaliplatin) combined with PD-1 antibody plus long- or short-course radiotherapy, or PD-1 antibody combined with cytotoxic T lymphocyte associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) antibody. Analysis and evaluation of adverse events during neoadjuvant immunotherapy were performed according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Standard version 3.0; the surgical complications were evaluated according to the Clavien-Dindo grading standard; the efficacy evaluation of neoadjuvant immunotherapy included the following indicators: major pathological remission (MPR) was defined as tumor regression induced by neoadjuvant therapy in pathology residual tumor ≤10%; pathological complete response (pCR) was defined as tumor regression induced by neoadjuvant therapy without residual tumor in pathology; the tumor response rate was disease control rate (DCR), namely the proportion of complete response (CR), partial response (PR) and stable disease (SD) in the whole group; the objective response rate (ORR) was CR+PR. Results: The median cycle of neoadjuvant immunotherapy was 4 (1-10) in whole group, and the incidence of immune-related adverse reactions was 37.2% (35/94), including 35 cases (37.2%) of skin-related adverse reactions, 21 cases (22.3%) of thyroid dysfunction and 8 cases (8.5%) of immune enteritis, of which grade III or above accounted for 1.1%. The median interval between completion of neoadjuvant therapy and surgery was 30 (21-55) days. There were 81 cases of radical resection of rectal cancer, 11 cases of radical resection of colon cancer, and 2 cases of colon cancer combined with other organ resection. The primary tumor resection of all the patients reached R0. The incidence of surgical-related complications was 22.3% (21/94), mainly anastomotic leakage (4 cases), pelvic infection (4 cases), abdominal effusion (3 cases), anastomotic stenosis (3 cases ) and abdominal and pelvic hemorrhage (2 cases). Grade I-II complications developed in 13 cases (13.8%), grade III and above complications developed in 8 cases (8.5%), no grade IV or above complications were found. During a median follow-up of 32 (1-46 ) months, DCR was 98.9% (93/94), ORR was 88.3 % (83/94), pCR was 41.5% (39/94), MPR was 60.6% (57/94). The pCR rate of 26 patients with dMMR and MSI-H undergoing simple immunotherapy was 57.7% (15/26), and MPR rate was 65.4% (17/26). The pCR rate of 68 pMMR and MSS patients undergoing combined immunotherapy was 35.3%(24/68), and MPR rate was 58.8% (40/68). Conclusions: Neoadjuvant immunotherapy has favorable tumor control rate and pathological remission rate for patients with initial resectable colorectal cancer. The incidences of perioperative adverse reactions and surgical complications are acceptable.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the effect of levosimendan on myocardial injury in patients with sepsis.Methods:Eighty-two patients with sepsis complicated by myocardial injury who received treatment in Yinzhou Second Hospital from June 2015 to September 2017 were included in this study. They were randomly assigned to receive either dobutamine treatment (control group, n = 41) or levosimendan treatment (study group, n = 41) based on conventional basic treatment. Before and after treatment, serum levels of heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP), cardiac troponin I (cTnI), N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), left ventricular ejection fraction (LEVF), Acute Physiology, Age, and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score, intensive care unit (ICU) stay, and 28-day mortality were compared between the control and study groups. Results:Before treatment, there were no significant differences in serum levels of H-FABP, cTnI, and NT-proBNP as well as LVEF and APACHE II score between the control and study groups (all P > 0.05). At 6 hours after treatment, serum levels of H-FABP, cTnI, and NT-proBNP in the control and study groups [(26.22 ± 7.22) μg/L vs. (39.93 ± 9.85) μg/L, (25.97 ± 6.93) μg/L vs. (34.86 ± 8.55) μg/L, (0.004 ± 0.002) μg/L vs. (1.580 ± 0.360) μg/L, (0.003 ± 0.003) μg/L vs. (0.760 ± 0.210) μg/L, (1 561.73 ± 633.70) ng/L vs. (2 570.06 ± 747.95) ng/L, (1 602.28 ± 681.45) ng/L vs. (2 225.53 ± 585.14) ng/L] were significantly increased compared with before treatment ( t = 7.188, 5.172, 28.031, 23.079, 6.586, 4.443, all P < 0.05). After treatment, serum levels of H-FABP, cTnI, and NT-proBNP in the study group were significantly lower than those in the control group ( t = 2.489, 12.598, 2.323, all P < 0.05). In each group, serum level of H-FABP at 72 hours after treatment was significantly lower than that at 6 hours after treatment [(39.93 ± 9.85) μg/L vs. (6.28 ± 1.07) μg/L, (34.86 ± 8.55) μg/L vs. (5.82 ± 1.88) μg/L], serum levels of cTnI and NT-proBNP at 72 hours after treatment were significantly increased compared with those at 6 hours after treatment [(1.58 ± 0.36) μg/L vs. (2.72 ± 0.55) μg/L, (0.76 ± 0.21) μg/L vs. (1.78 ± 0.49) μg/L, (2 570.06 ± 747.95 ) ng/L vs. (3 623.27 ± 1 105.28) ng/L, (2 225.53 ± 585.14) ng/L vs. (3 128.08 ± 1 098.07) ng/L, t = 11.105, 12.251, 5.053, 4.645, all P < 0.05). At 72 hours after treatment, serum levels of cTnI and NT-proBNP levels in the control group were significantly higher than those in the study group ( t = 8.171, 2.035, both P < 0.05). At 72 hours after treatment, there was no significant difference in serum H-FABP level between the control and study groups ( P > 0.05). At 72 hours after treatment, APACHE II score in each group was significantly decreased and LVEF in each group was significantly increased compared with before treatment ( t = 7.718, 11.380, 9.049, 9.501, all P < 0.05). The change in APACHE II score at 72 hours after treatment relative to before treatment in the study group was more obvious than that in the control group ( t = 2.583, P < 0.05). At 72 hours after treatment, there were no significant differences in LVEF, ICU stay and 28-day mortality between the control and study groups (all P > 0.05). Conclusion:Levosimendan can reduce the serum levels of H-FABP, cTnI and NT-proBNP as well as APACHE II score in patients with sepsis, increase serum level of LVEF, and alleviate myocardial injury.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To evaluate the relationship between degrees of biliary obstruction and levels of lipid peroxidation in patients.Methods:A total of 140 patients of both sexes, with biliary obstruction, without biliary puncture and drainage, aged 40-64 yr, with body mass index of 18.5-23.9 kg/m 2, of American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status Ⅱ or Ⅲ, were selected.The patients with different degrees of biliary obstruction were divided into 4 groups ( n=35 each) according to Child-Pugh grade total bilirubin (TBIL) concentrations: group A (TBIL<17 μmol/L), group B (17 μmol/L≤TBIL<34 μmol/L), group C (34 μmol/L≤TBIL<51 μmol/L) and group D (TBIL≥51 μmol/L). The serum TBIL, direct bilirubin (DBIL), indirect bilirubin (IBIL), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), total bile acid (TBA) and malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations were measured.The correlation between serum MDA concentration and degree of biliary obstruction was tested by Spearman correlation analysis. Results:Compared with group A and group B, the serum DBIL, IBIL, ALT, AST, TBA and MDA concentrations were significantly increased in group C and group D ( P<0.05), and there was no significant difference in the parameters mentioned above between group A and group B ( P>0.05). Compared with group C, the serum DBIL, IBIL, ALT, AST, TBA and MDA concentrations were significantly increased in group D ( P<0.05). Serum MDA concentration was positively correlated with degree of biliary obstruction ( r=0.54, P<0.05). Conclusion:The degree of biliary obstruction can reflect the level of lipid peroxidation in patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the relationship between lateral hypothalamus and melatonin-induced reduction of wakefulness in rats and the receptor mechanism.Methods:Forty clean-grade adult male Sprague-Dawley rats, weighing 250-300 g, were divided into 4 groups ( n=10 each) using a random number table method: control group (group C), melatonin group (group M), melatonin type-1/2 receptor (MT 1R) antagonist luzindole plus melatonin group (group L+ M), and melatonin type-2 receptor (MT 2R) antagonist 4P-PDOT plus melatonin group (P+ M group). In group C, 0.5 μl of 0.9% NaCl solution was microinjected into the lateral hypothalamus.In group M, 1 μmol/L melatonin 0.5 μl was microinjected into the lateral hypothalamus.In group L+ M, 1 μmol/L MT 1/2R and 1 μmol/L melatonin (0.5 μl in total) was microinjected into the lateral hypothalamus.The microinjection time was from 19: 30 to 20: 00.The changes in sleep-wake duration and the oscillating energy in different frequency bands of electroencephalogram were detected by using electroencephalogram and electromyogram recording technology. Results:Compared with group C, the percentage of wakefulness time was significantly decreased, the percentage of non-rapid eye movement sleep and rapid eye movement sleep time was increased, the energy for delta oscillation was increased, the energy for theta oscillation was decreased, and no significant change was found in the energy for alpha oscillation in M and P+ M groups ( P<0.01), and no significant change was found in the parameters mentioned above in group L+ M ( P>0.05). Compared with group M, the percentage of wakefulness time was significantly increased, the percentage of non-rapid eye movement sleep and rapid eye movement sleep time was decreased, the energy for delta oscillation was decreased, and the energy for theta oscillation was increased in group L+ M ( P<0.01), and no significant change was found in the parameters mentioned above in group P+ M ( P>0.05). Conclusion:The lateral hypothalamus may be involved in melatonin-induced reduction of wakefulness in rats, and the mechanism may be related to activating MT 1R in the lateral hypothalamus.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the clinical effects of single-stage auricular reconstruction and hearing rehabilitation in children with microtia and external auditory canal atresia. Methods: Sixty eight cases of microtia with external auditory canal atresia (53 males and 15 females, age from 7 to 12 years, with a median age of 8.8 years), who received operations in Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine from July 2017 to December 2019 were collected.A total of 28 cases received auricle reconstruction with high-density polyethylene (Medpor) framework and hearing reconstructions, among which 20 patients received the traditional external auditory canal and middle ear repair (EACR), and eight patients were implanted bone conduction device bone bridge(BB) simultaneously.In the control group, 40 patients only received Medpor frame implantation for auricle plasty. Postoperative changes in auricle morphology and auditory function and postoperative complications were evaluated. Results: After three to thirty months follow-ups, the auricles shape recovered well in all three groups. The average scores of 14 fine structures in the auricles were 9.43(EACR) and 10.67(BB) points. The average score of auricle symmetry were 6.83(EACR) and 6.00(BB) points. There was no significant difference compared to the auricle reconstruction group (8.23/6.20 points). P>0.05. After surgery, the average hearing improvement in the BB group was 43.33 dB HL and the average speech recognition threshold declined 42.28 dB HL. In the EACR group, the average hearing improvement was 4.13 dB HL and the average speech recognition threshold declined 11.36 dB HL. No vertigo, tinnitus, cerebrospinal fluid leakage and other complications occurred in all the patients. In the EACR group, sensorial hearing loss, auricle stent fracture, ear canal restenosis and ear canal atresia occurred in one patient respectively. In the auricle group, one auricle stent exposure and one facial branch nerve injury occurred. Nearly ten patients had difficulty in hair growth at scalp incisions. Conclusions: The operation of single-stage auricular reconstruction and hearing rehabilitation for microtia is feasible. The methods of hearing reconstruction should be determined by evaluating the development of the inner and middle ear of the patients. For those with poor mastoid development, bone bridge implantation is recommended to achieve a stable and significant hearing effect.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To analyze the epidemiological history, clinical manifestations, treatment and the short-term prognosis of 31 cases of 2019 novel coronavirus(2019-nCoV) infection in children from six provinces (autonomous region) in northern China.@*Methods@#A retrospective analysis of the epidemiological history, clinical symptoms, signs, laboratory examinations, chest imaging, treatment and the short-term prognosis of 31 cases of 2019-nCoV was conducted. The patients were diagnosed between January 25th, 2020 and February 21st, 2020 in 21 hospitals in 17 cities of six provinces(autonomous region) of Shaanxi, Gansu, Ningxia, Hebei, Henan and Shandong.@*Results@#The age of the 31 children with 2019-nCoV infection was 7 years and 1 month (6 months -17 years). Nine cases (29%) were imported cases. Other 21 cases (68%) had contact with confirmed infected adults. One case (3%) had contact with asymptomatic returnees from Wuhan. Among the 31 children, 28 patients (90%) were family cluster cases. The clinical types were asymptomatic type in 4 cases (13%), mild type in 13 cases (42%), and common type in 14 cases (45%). No severe or critical type existed. The most common symptom was fever (n=20, 65%), including 1 case of high fever, 9 cases of moderate fever, 10 cases of low fever. Fever lasted from 1 day to 9 days. The fever of fifteen cases lasted for ≤3 d, while in other 5 cases lasted > 3 d. Other symptoms included cough (n=14, 45%), fatigue (n=3, 10%) and diarrhea (n=3, 9%). Pharyngalgia, runny nose, dizziness, headache and vomiting were rare. In the early stage, the total leukocytes count in peripheral blood decreased in 2 cases (6%), the lymphocytes count decreased in 2 cases (6%), and the platelet count increased in 2 cases (6%).Elevation of C-reactive protein (10%, 3/30), erythrocyte sedimentation rate(19%,4/21), procalcitonin(4%,1/28), liver enzyme(22%, 6/27) and muscle enzyme (15%, 4/27) occurred in different proportions. Renal function and blood glucose were normal. There were abnormal chest CT changes in 14 cases, including 9 cases with patchy ground glass opacities and nodules, mostly located in the lower lobe of both lungs near the pleural area. After receiving supportive treatment, the viral nucleic acid turned negative in 25 cases within 7-23 days. Among them, 24 children (77%) recovered and were discharged from hospital. No death occurred.@*Conclusions@#In this case series, 2019-nCoV infections in children from six provinces (autonomous region) in northern China are mainly caused by close family contact. Clinical types are asymptomatic, mild and common types. Clinical manifestations and laboratory examination results are nonspecific. Close contact history of epidemiology, nucleic acid detection and chest imaging are important bases for diagnosis. After general treatment, the short-term prognosis is good.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To evaluate the effect of propofol on excitability of pyramidal neurons in orbitofrontal cortex of mice and the underlying ion channel mechanism.Methods:Brain slices of 400 μm thickness from healthy male C57 mice (aged 8-12 weeks)were prepared.This experiment was performed in two parts.Part Ⅰ The brain slices were divided into 2 groups ( n=7 each) based on the random number table method: control group (C group) and propofol group (P group). Cells were perfused with vehicle in group C and with 10 μmol/L propofol in group P. Part Ⅱ The brain slices were divided into 5 groups ( n=8 each) using the random number table method: propofol group (P group), hyperpolarization-activated non-selective cation channel antagonist ZD7288 plus propofol group (Z + P group), inward rectifier potassium channel antagonist topiramate plus propofol group(T + P group), transient activation of voltage-gated potassium channel antagonist 4-aminopyridine (4AP) plus propofol group (A + P group), and delayed activation of voltage-gated potassium channel antagonist tetraethylammonium (TEA) plus propofol group (TEA + P group). Cells were perfused with 10 μmol/L propofol for 2 min in P group, with 5 μmol/L ZD7288 and 10 μmol/L melatonin for 2 min in Z+ P group, with 5 μmol/L topiramate and 10 μmol/L propofol for 2 min in T + P group, with 10 μ mol/L 4-aminopyridine and 10 μmol/L propofol for 2 min in A+ P group, and with 10 μmol/L TEA and 10 μmol/L propofol for 2 min in TEA+ P group.The whole-cell currents, membrane potential and discharge frequency of pyramidal neurons in the orbitofrontal cortex were recorded by whole-cell patch-clamp. Results:Part Ⅰ Compared with C group, whole-cell currents were significantly increased, and the membrane potential and discharge frequency were decreased in P group ( P<0.01). Part Ⅱ Compared with P group, no significant change was found in the whole-cell currents, membrane potentials and discharge frequency in Z+ P group, T+ P group and A+ P group ( P>0.05), and the whole-cell currents were significantly decreased, and the membrane potentials and discharge frequency were increased in TEA+ P group ( P<0.05). Conclusion:Propofol can inhibit the excitability of pyramidal neurons in the orbitofrontal cortex, and the mechanism is related to activating delayed activation of voltage-gated potassium channels in mice.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To compare preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE) using tris-acryl gelatin microspheres (TAGM) versus coils.Methods:From March 2016 to June 2018, 21 consecutive patients with a future liver remnant (FLR) ratio of less than 45% before planned major hepatectomy for malignant or benign liver diseases were enrolled from the First Department of Biliary Surgery, Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital into this study. The patients were divided to receive portal vein embolization (PVE) using TAGM distally and coils proximally (the TC group) and PVE using multiple coils (the CC group). Post-PVE complications, liver function, routine blood tests; FLR hyperplasia, types of liver resection, operation time, intraoperative blood loss, and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups.Results:Eight patients were included in the TC group. There were 4 males and 4 females, with a mean age of (55.3±7.7) years. Of 13 patients included into the CC group, there were 11 males and 2 females, with a mean age of (52.6±11.3) years. There were no significant differences in sex, age, types of hepatic diseases, volume of FLR, ratio of FLR, ratio of standard FLR, types of surgery, operation duration, blood loss, major complications, and liver failure rates between the two groups. All patients in the two groups had successful PVE. The TC group developed effective growth of volume of FLR with one patient who failed to undergo surgery because of tumor progression. In the CC group, four patients failed to undergo liver resection: one patient developed thrombosis of the left branch and main trunk of portal vein; tumor progression occurred in one patient and two patients had insufficient FLR growth. Compared with the CC group, the TC group had a significantly higher volume of FLR hyperplasia [(9.0±2.8) % vs. (5.2±3.8) %, P<0.05], and a faster but insignificant increase in proliferation rate [(11.4±7.1) ml/d vs. (6.9±5.2) ml/d, P>0.05], a greater but insignificant increase in percentage of proliferation [(33.6±20.1) % vs. (20.9±15.1) %, P>0.05]. Conclusions:This study showed that PVE with TAGM plus coils is safe and effective. It induced a better degree of hypertrophy of FLR compared to PVE using multiple coils.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the relationship between urinary iodine level and breast cancer,we compare urinary iodine excretion levels in patients with breast cancer,benign breast disease,other female malignant tumors and control subjects in Xiangya Hospital of Central South University.Methods From December 2018 to January 2019,64 patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer in Xiangya Hospital of Central South University were selected as case group,benign breast disease group (n =49),other female malignant tumor group (n =39) and health examination group (n =50) as control group.Urinary iodine was determined by colorimetry.According to the urinary iodine level the patients divided into three groups:iodine excess (>300 μg/L),medium iodine (100-300 μg/L) and iodine deficiency (< 100 μg/L).The relationship between urinary iodine and clinicopathology of breast cancer was analyzed.Results The level of urinary iodine in benign breast nodule group 319.13 (163.98) μg/L > breast cancer group 273.96 (151.30) μg/L > female other malignant tumor group 212.95 (161.71) μg/L > normal control group 199.15 (194.45) μg/L,with significantly differance (H =9.936,P =0.019).Urinary iodine level in the normal control group was significantly lower than that in the benign breast disease group (P =0.013).The patients were further divided into three groups according to the urinary iodine level:iodine excess,iodine medium and iodine deficiency,the number of urine iodine < 100 μg/L in the normal control group was significantly higher than that in the breast cancer group (P =0.021).The level of urinary iodine was negatively correlated with the size of the primary focus of breast cancer (Z =-2.307,P =0.021).The effect of urinary iodine was analyzed by multiple linear regression method.The size of primary focus was included in the regression equation (R2 =0.136,P=0.007),but had nothing to do with lymph node metastasis and the expression status of estrogen receptor (ER),androgen receptor (AR),progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2).Conclusions There is a negative linear correlation between urinary iodine level and the size of primary focus of breast cancer,but it has nothing to do with lymph node metastasis and the expression of ER,AR,PR and HER-2.
