ABSTRACT

Objective:To study the complications and prognosis of extremely premature infants(EPIs) with gestational age (GA) <28 w.Methods:From January 2016 to December 2020, EPIs with GA <28 w admitted to NICU of our hospital were retrospectively studied. Clinical data of the infants and their mothers during pregnancy were reviewed. According to the prognosis, the infants were assigned into the survival group, the death group and the withdrawal group. According to GA, the infants were assigned into <26 w goup, 26~26 +6 w group, ≥27 w group. According to birth weight (BW), the infants were assigned in to ≤750 g group, 750~999 g group and ≥1 000 g group. SPSS 26.0 was used for data analysis. Results:A total of 265 EPIs were included, 122 (46.0%) in the survival group, 47 (17.7%) in the death group and 96 (36.2%) in the withdrawal group. GA and BW of the survival group were significantly higher than the death group and the withdrawal group ( P<0.05). The incidences of tracheal intubation (92.2%) and pulmonary hemorrhage (42.2%) in the death group were the highest among the three groups. The survival group had the highest application of prenatal glucocorticoids (80.3%) and pulmonary surfactants (99.2%) ( P<0.05). In the survival group, the top 3 common complications were bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) (68.0%), pulmonary infections (65.6%) and neonatal sepsis (34.4%). The survival rate increased with GA and BW. Conclusions:The survival rate of EPIs is closely correlated with GA and BW. EPIs with pulmonary hemorrhage and tracheal intubation have poor prognosis. Prenatal glucocorticoids and pulmonary surfactant may improve clinical outcome. BPD and pulmonary infections are common complications of surviving EPIs.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the clinical effects of autologous follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplantation in the treatment of small area secondary cicatricial alopecia (hereinafter referred to as cicatricial alopecia) after burns. Methods: A retrospective observational study was carried out. According to the adopted treatment methods, 18 patients (12 males and 6 females, aged (29±6) years) who received autologous FUE transplantation for small area cicatricial alopecia after burns from March 2017 to November 2019 in the First Affiliated Hospital of Air Force Medical University were included in FUE transplantation group, and 18 patients (13 males and 5 females, aged (33±5) years) who were treated with expanded flap transplantation for small area cicatricial alopecia after burns by the same surgery team during the same period in the same hospital were included in expanded flap transplantation group. All the patients were followed up for more than 1 year. At the last follow-up, the follicular unit density in the transplanted area was measured by Folliscope hair detection system and the hair survival rate was calculated; the visual analogue scale (VAS) method was adopted to evaluate the treatment effect; patients were asked their satisfaction with the treatment effect and the occurrence of complications during follow-up; the hair growth and the scalp thickness, pain, pruritus, pigmentation, and surface roughness of the transplanted area were recorded. Data were statistically analyzed with Fisher's exact probability test and independent sample t test. Results: At the last follow-up, the follicular unit density in the transplanted area of patients in FUE transplantation group was (46.8±2.0)/cm2, which was significantly higher than (42.5±4.3)/cm2 in expanded flap transplantation group (t=3.84, P<0.01); the hair survival rates of patients were similar between the two groups (P>0.05). At the last follow-up, VAS scores evaluating the treatment effect of patients were similar between the two groups (P>0.05); the satisfaction score of patients toward the treatment effect in FUE transplantation group was 8.6±1.1, which was significantly higher than 7.6±0.8 in expanded flap transplantation group (t=2.89, P<0.01). During the follow-up, no inflammation or infection occurred in patients of the two groups, but only 2 patients in expanded flap transplantation group had postoperative pain. At the last follow-up, the transplanted area of patients in the two groups was covered with new hair, and the hair growth direction was basically consistent with the surrounding normal hair; scalp thickness, pain, pruritus, pigmentation, and surface roughness of the transplanted area of patients were similar between the two groups (P>0.05). Conclusions: Autologous FUE transplantation has better long-term follicular unit density and patients' satisfaction than expanded flap transplantation in the treatment of small area cicatricial alopecia after burns, showing better postoperative effect and a good prospect of clinical application.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the safety and long-term clinical efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with in-stent chronic total occlusion (IS-CTO) lesions. Metheds: This is a retrospective analysis. Patients with IS-CTO who underwent PCI in Fuwai hospital from January 2010 to December 2013 were enrolled. A total of 212 patients who met the inclusion criteria were included in the IS-CTO group, 212 matched patients with primary CTO lesions were included in the de novo CTO group. The incidence of complications and the success rate of PCI were compared between the two groups. Successful PCI was defined as successfully implantation of stent(s) at target CTO lesions. The primary endpoint was defined as a composite event of cardiac death and myocardial infarction (MI). Secondary endpoints including PCI success, all-cause death, cardiac death, MI, target vessel related MI, revascularization, target vessel revascularization, heart failure for rehospitalization. The patients were followed up for 5 years after PCI. Results: A total of 424 cases were included. The mean age was (57.8±10.5) years, there were 364 males in this cohort. The left ventricular ejection fraction was significantly lower ((58.7±9.2)% vs. (61.0±7.7)%, P=0.01) and the SYNTAX scores was significantly higher (19.4±8.3 vs. 15.3±10.0, P<0.01) in IS-CTO group than that in de novo CTO group. The proportion of patients with target CTO lesions in left anterior descending artery was significantly higher (42.9% (50/212) vs. 23.6% (91/212), P<0.01) in IS-CTO group than that in de novo CTO group. The rate of successful PCI (71.7% (152/212) vs. 69.8% (148/212), P=0.70) and complication (40.6% (86/212) vs. 36.3% (77/212), P=0.37) was similar between the two groups. The incidence of primary endpoint at 5 years was significantly higher in IS-CTO group (10.8% (23/212) vs. 4.7% (10/212), P=0.02), which was driven by higher incidence of MI (9.0% (19/212) vs. 4.2% (9/212), P=0.05). There were a trend of higher secondary endpoints in IS-CTO group (all P>0.05). Conclusion: The safety and effectiveness of PCI are acceptable in patients with IS-CTO, but the risk of long-term cardiac death and MI is higher among patients with IS-CTO as compared to patients with primary CTO lesions.

ABSTRACT

Sternotomy is a routine surgical pathway for heart, lung, and mediastinal surgery. Poststernotomy dehiscence is a common complication of sternotomy, in which infection after poststernotomy dehiscence is one of the most serious postoperative complications in cardiothoracic surgery. Previously, conventional dressing, negative pressure wound therapy, and skin stretching device were used in the treatment of poststernotomy dehiscence, but the outcome of each single method was poor, which caused great pain and burden to the patients and their families. In recent years, tissue flap containing rich blood supply has drawn a lot of attention because of its good wound cover, stable thoracic reconstruction, low infection recurrence rate, and less postoperative complication. In this paper, we reviewed the epidemiological characteristics of poststernotomy dehiscence, and summarized the various classifications for poststernotomy dehiscence and the therapeutic effects of different tissue flap repair. We hope that this review would provide a basis for further construction of the treatment system for poststernotomy dehiscence and the formation of a treatment guideline.

ABSTRACT

Objective To compare the effects of early passive motion(EPM)and delayed passive motion (DPM)on joint range of motion(ROM),joint function and recurrent tears after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Methods A total of 84 cases with middle or large rotator cuff injury were randomly divided into EPM group(43 cases)and DPM group(41 cases). EPM group began shoulder rehabilitation exercise on the first day post-opera-tion and DPM group began 6 weeks later. ROM,pain and function of shoulder joint were evaluated before and 3,6 and 12 months after operation. Results ASES score and UCLA score in EPM group were significantly higher than those in DPM group at 3 months postoperatively(P < 0.05). There was no significant difference in joint ROM,pain and functional between two groups at 6 months and 12 months postoperatively(P > 0.05). There was no statistically significant difference in recurrent tears between two groups at least 12 months follow-up. Conclusion There was no significant difference in functional outcomes,ROM and relative risks of recurrent tears between EPM and DPM in patients undergoing arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs. EPM is conducive to joint ROM and function rapid recovery postoperatively and does not increase the risks of recurrent tears.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the value of employing the small intestinal feeding tube in treating high position intestinal obstruction of newborn infant.</p><p><b>METHOD</b>Five newborn infants (3 males and 2 females; 1 premature infant and 4 fully-mature infants; 2 had membranous atresia of duodenum, 1 had annular pancreas, and 2 had proximal small intestine atresia; 1 infant had malrotation). The duodenal membrane-like atresia and the blind-end of small intestine were removed and intestinal anastomosis was performed, which was combined with intestinal malrotation removal. Before the intestinal anastomosis surgery, the anesthetist inserted via nose a 6Fr small intestinal ED tube, made by CREATE MEDIC CO LTD of Japan[</p><p><b>REGISTRATION NUMBER</b>the State Food and Drug Administration-instrument (Im.) 2007-NO.2661620]. Twenty-four hours after surgery, abdominal X-ray plain film was taken and patients were fed with syrup; 48 hours later, formula milk was pumped or lactose-free milk amino acids were given by intravenous injection pump through the feeding tube. The amount of milk and fluids was gradually increased to normal amount according to the condition. In initial 3 days the intravenous nutrition was given and one week after operation, the infants were fed through mouth in addition to pumping milk through the tube and stopped infusion. Ten to 22 days after operation, the tube was removed and the infant patients were discharged.</p><p><b>RESULT</b>All the five infants showed that the feeding through the nutrition tube was accomplished and the time of venous nutrition was reduced and fistula operation was avoided. None of the infants on question was off the tube and no jaundice exacerbation was found and the liver function was also found normal. At the very beginning, the tube was occasionally blocked by milk vale in one infant and after 0.9% sodium chloride solution flushing patency restored. After that, the feeding tube was washed once with warm water after feeding. In one infant vomiting occurred due to enough oral milk. The photograph of upper gastrointestine did not show anastomomotic stricture or fistula, or intestinal obstruction. After pulling out the tube, the symptoms disappeared and then the patient was discharged. One child was found to have diarrhea with no lactose nutrition liquid and given compound lactic bacteria preparations for oral administration, the symptom disappeared. In the 5 cases, the shortest hospital stay was 10 days and the longest was 22 days, the average stay was 16 days. Three to 5 days after operation the weight restored to birth weight, the weight had increased, when discharged, to an average of 5.5 g (kg·d).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The small intestinal feeding tube was very effective for the postoperative nutrition maintenance of high position intestinal obstruction in newborn infants.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To elucidate the effects of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) on the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta)/Smad pathway in keloid-derived fibroblasts (KFb), and to investigate the underlying mechanism in the treatment of pathologic scar with IFN-gamma.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Keloid tissue of 3 patients were obtained, and then KFb were separated and cultured in vitro. KFb from passages 3 to 5 were used for the study. (1) KFb were divided into control group (incubated with serum-free DMEM), TGF-beta(1) group (treated with 10 ng/mL TGF-beta(1)), IFN-gamma group (treated with 100 ng/mL IFN-gamma), and TGF-beta(1)+IFN-gamma group (incubated with 10 ng/mL TGF-beta(1) combined with 100 ng/mL IFN-gamma). The expression level of mRNA and protein of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), alpha smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) protein and expression of alpha-SMA positive KFb were detected by real-time fluorescent quantitation RT-PCR (FQ-RT-PCR), Western blot and immunofluorescence cytochemical staining. (2) Another sample of KFb was obtained and treated with 10 ng/mL IFN-gamma. The expression level of Smad 3 and Smad 7 protein was detected by Western blot before and 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 h post stimulation (PSH). The expression level of Smad 3 and Smad 7 mRNA was assessed by FQ-RT-PCR before stimulation and 30 mins post stimulation and at PSH, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8. (3) Another sample of KFb was obtained and divided into 1, 10 and 100 ng/mL IFN-gamma groups based on the concentration of IFN-gamma, treated for 4 hours; KFb without IFN-gamma treatment was set up as control group. The expression levels of the protein and mRNA of Smad 3 and Smad 7 were measured by FQ-RT-PCR and Western blot.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>(1) The level of mRNA and protein of CTGF in IFN-gamma group (0.017 +/- 0.009 and 1.198 +/- 0.004) was respectively lower than that in control group (0.024 +/- 0.013 and 1.229 +/- 0.011, P < 0.05). The level of mRNA and protein of CTGF in TGF-beta(1)+IFN-gamma group (0.634 +/- 0.138 and 1.204 +/- 0.010) was respectively lower than that in TGF-beta(1) group (1.331 +/- 0.298 and 1.727 +/- 0.004, P < 0.01). The fluorescence intensity of alpha-SMA positive KFb (0.922 +/- 0.059) and the expression level of alpha-SMA protein (0.3051 +/- 0.0031) in IFN-gamma group decreased significantly than those in control group (1.055 +/- 0.005 and 0.4513 +/- 0.0094, P < 0.01). The fluorescence intensity of alpha-SMA positive KFb (1.129 +/- 0.004) and the expression level of alpha-SMA protein (0.6734 +/- 0.0098) in TGF-beta(1)+IFN-gamma group decreased significantly than those in TGF-beta(1) group (1.270 +/- 0.005 and 1.3842 +/- 0.0024, P < 0.01). (2) The expression level of Smad 3 mRNA and protein at the first time point after IFN-gamma treatment increased temporarily then decreased gradually, and mRNA expression level reached the nadir at PSH 4, it rose gradually later, though it was still lower at PSH 8 than that before treatment (P < 0.01); protein expression level at PSH 8 was significantly lower than that before treatment (P < 0.01). The expression level of Smad 7 mRNA and protein increased gradually to the maximum at PSH 2 and 4 respectively, then decreased but was still higher at PSH 8 than that before treatment (P < 0.05). (3) Compared with those in control group, the expression levels of Smad 3 mRNA and protein in 1, 10 and 100 ng/mL IFN-gamma group were significantly lower, the expression levels of Smad 7 mRNA and protein were significantly higher (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01). The higher concentration of IFN-gamma, the more significant differences were observed.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>IFN-gamma can down-regulate the expression of Smad 3 while up-regulate the expression of Smad 7 in a time- and dose-dependent manner, and reduce the expression level of CTGF and alpha-SMA in the basic state or induced by TGF-beta(1), which shows a significant inhibitory effect on the TGF-beta/Smad signal pathway. This may be an important mechanism in the treatment of pathologic scar by IFN-gamma.</p>

ABSTRACT

With reverse transcriptase PCR, the transcripton of copper homeostasis relative gene Afe0329 in Acidithiobacillus ferrooxians standard strain ATCC23270 was investigated. The further analysis of genes in this transcripton was analyzed employed by Vector NTI, Blast, TMHMM Server, PSORTb software and so on. From the DNA of different strains, the transcripton of Afe0329 was amplified using special primer pairs to identify the universality of it in the genome of A.ferrooxidans strains. The results showed that gene Afe0330 and Afe0331 were cotranscribed with Afe0329, and they were in a single transcripton. Gene Afe0329 was supported to express a P1b3-type ATPase which is a heavy metal ion pumping transmembrane protein, protein AFE0330 which expressed by gene Afe0330 was a cytoplasmic protein, no significant ho- mologous sequences of Afe0330 or Afe0331 had been obtained by Blast analysis. And the transcripton of Afe0329 was universal in genome of A. ferrooxidans strains.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the influence of different thawing temperatures on the morphology and type I collagen metabolism of the human fibroblasts processed at - 10 degrees C in vitro.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>In vitro cultured human fibroblasts were randomly divided into control, 20 degrees C thawing, and 37 degrees C thawing groups. After being frozen at -10 degrees C, the cells in the latter two groups were thawed at 20 degrees C and 37 degrees C, respectively. The cell proliferation was assessed with MTT method and was expressed by absorption under 570nm (A ), The morphological change of the cells was observed with inverted phase contrast microscope, the change in the intracellular content of collagen was determined with immunohistochemistry, and the extracellular content of collagen was assayed with ELISA.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>In 20 degrees C thawing group, the absorbance decreased at first and increased thereafter, and they were obviously lower than that before freezing (0.95 +/- 0.16, P < 0.05 or 0.01). Cell dehydration and shrinking, cytoplasm loss and increased ratio of cytoplasm to nucleus were found in the survived fibroblasts. The cells proliferated actively at 72 and 96 hours after injury, with increased mitotic index and disordered arrangement. Compared with that before freezing (96.4 +/- 2.9) , the extracellular collagen content increased at first, decreased thereafter, and increased again slowly later (P < 0.05), while the intracellular collagen content decreased at first and increased thereafter (P < 0.05). The collagen metabolism in 37 degrees C thawing group was no difference compared with that in control group. Some cells undergone a floating period before adhering to the culture dish walls.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Cell dehydration after low temperature treatment could protect the cells from damage. Proper thawing temperature could be beneficial to the cell resuscitation. Comparing with slow thawing, rapid thawing could minimize the cell damage.</p>
