A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor: A glycoprotein of MW 25 kDa containing internal disulfide bonds. It induces the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of neutrophilic granulocyte precursor cells and functionally activates mature blood neutrophils. Among the family of colony-stimulating factors, G-CSF is the most potent inducer of terminal differentiation to granulocytes and macrophages of leukemic myeloid cell lines.

Allografts with autogenous platelet-rich plasma for tibial defect reconstruction: a rabbit study. (1/24)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of autogenous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for fresh-frozen allografts in tibial defect reconstruction in rabbits. METHODS: 40 adult New Zealand white rabbits underwent tibial defect reconstruction with autografts (n=12), allografts without PRP (n=12), or allografts with PRP (n=12) and were observed for 12, 16, and 24 weeks (4 for each period). Tibias of the remaining 4 rabbits were used as donor allografts, and the remaining allografts were procured from recipient rabbits. A 1.5- cm cortical segment of the tibia was osteotomised, and then fixed with a 9-hole mini-compression plate and 2 cerclage wires. Allografts were stripped off the periosteum and soft tissues and medullary contents, and then stored in a freezer at -80 masculineC. All allografts were deep frozen for at least 4 weeks before transplantation. 7 ml of whole blood was drawn to prepare 1 ml of PRP. The PRP was then mixed with 1.0 ml of human thrombin to form a platelet gel. The PRP gel was then packed into the medullary canal of the allograft and applied on the cortical surface before tibial defect reconstruction. Rabbits were sacrificed at 12, 16, and 24 weeks. The specimens were assessed for bone union at host-graft junctions and for bone resorption, new bone formation, callus encasement, and viable osteocyte counts. RESULTS: There were 4 specimens in each group at each observation period. Osteoid bridging the gap at host-graft junctions was noted in all specimens in the autograft and allograft-with-PRP groups at week 12 and in the allograft-without-PRP group at week 24. Bone union in allografts without PRP was delayed. All indices for biological incorporation (resorption index, new bone formation index, callus encasement index, and viable osteocyte count) were significantly greater in the autograft than allograft-without-PRP groups, except for the resorption index at week 24, whereas the differences were not significant between the autograft and allograft-with-PRP groups. The differences between the 2 allograft groups were usually not significant, except for the resorption index. CONCLUSION: PRP-augmented allografts behaved similarly to autografts for tibial defect reconstruction in rabbits. PRP increased bone union and bone resorption.  (+info)

Distal fibular lengthening after premature growth arrest: a case report. (2/24)

Post-traumatic premature closure of the distal fibular growth plate is a rare entity leading to shortening of the lateral malleolus. We report on a 14-year old boy who presented with a 4-year history of worsening, diffuse discomfort and swelling of his left ankle, as well as fibular shortening and talar malreduction. He had sustained a distal tibial fracture 4 years earlier and had been treated with closed reduction. He reported instability of the ankle and difficulty with running. There was 1-cm shortening of the left fibula, 1-cm shortening of the proximal fibula, and slight widening of the medial clear space. Both tibial and fibular growth plates were already closed and the left ankle joint space was slightly narrowed. He was treated with late fibular lengthening and autogenous iliac crest tricortical bone grafting and achieved anatomic restoration of the distal tibiofibular relationship. At one-year follow-up, the ankle-hindfoot score had improved from 69 to 100.  (+info)

High-dose therapy followed by autologous transplantation has improved survival in MM, however all patients eventually relapse, indicating the need for consolidation. Activation of idiotype-specific T cells by vaccination with autologous tumorprotein-loaded dendritic cells has been demonstrated. So-called Vaccibodies (consisting of two scFv (single chain Fragment variable) specific for surface molecules on APC (MHCII, CD40) linked to two exchangeable scFv from the mouse M315 myeloma protein and a Cγ3 dimerizing domain) elicit anti-Id antibodies in mice even in the absence of adjuvant, and stimulate Id-specific CD4+ T cells in vitro ...
In the abnormal myeloma cells several specific translocations have been described that facilitate cell survival. t(4;14) involves expression of the Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 3 (FGFR3) in most cases, activation of which initiates intra cellular signalling and activation of anti-apoptotic genes in the myeloma cells. t(11;14) activates the cyclin D1 gene, which promotes the initiation of the cell cycle, enabling myeloma cells to divide and proliferate. Loss of tumour suppressor genes such as Retinoblastoma-1 gene through deletion of chromosome 13q, ongoing p53 mutations and activation of the proto-oncogenes c-Maf through the t(14;16) and C-myc, as well as activation of the anti-apoptosis genes bcl-2 and Mcl1 all result in improved survival advantages for abnormal myeloma cells. ...

Purpose : In a recent clinical trial (Pinto-Fraga, Ophthalmology 2015) we concluded that topical 0.1% fluorometholone therapy reduced ocular signs in dry-eye (DE) patients and prevented exacerbation caused by exposure to desiccating stress (DS). We now identify severity, activity (i.e. response to DS) and therapeutic tear biomarkers (tBM) in these patients using linear mixed effect statistical models. Methods : 41 DE patients were recruited (visit 1, V1) and randomized to receive either topical 0.1% fluorometholone or its vehicle polyvinyl alcohol, 4 times daily for 21 days (V2). Immediately after, patients were exposed to DS in a controlled environment laboratory for 2h (V3) which increases DE activity as previously reported (Lopez-Miguel, Am J Ophthalmol 2014). Clinical evaluation and tear collection were performed at each visit. A panel of 18 potential tBM (EGF, IFNγ, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-13, IL-1RA, IL-17A, IP-10, RANTES, TNFα, MIP-1α, MMP-9, MCP-1) was ...

Because of the absence of effective treatment in the advanced stages of the disease, amputation is undertaken to alleviate unbearable symptoms. Since tissue ischemia and hypercholesterolemia are associated with an overwhelming generation of oxygen radicals, metabolic intervention with antioxidants and l-arginine can induce beneficial effects beyond those achieved by a novel therapeutic approach represented by the use of autologous ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Optimizing Bone Defect Reconstruction - Balanced Cable Transport with Circular External Fixation. AU - Quinnan, Stephen. AU - Lawrie, Charles. PY - 2017/10/1. Y1 - 2017/10/1. N2 - Distraction osteogenesis has proven effective in the management of tibial bone loss from severe trauma and infection. Unfortunately, pain and scarring from wires and half pins dragging through the skin and the required prolonged time in the external fixator make treatment difficult. Cable bone transport has been shown to improve cosmesis and decrease pain during transport. However, the published methods have limitations in that they have poor control of transport segment alignment, do not allow for lengthening of the limb, and do not permit weight bearing during the treatment process. We describe a novel method of cable bone transport that addresses each of these limitations with excellent control of alignment including the transport segment, easy conversion to allow limb lengthening, and full weight ...
A pterygium is a wedge-shaped piece of abnormal tissue that grows out of the cornea. Whether or not surgical removal of a pterygium is recommended depends on its size and extent, as well as its tendency for recurrent inflammation. If a pterygium is small but becomes intermittently inflamed, the ophthalmologist may recommend the use of a nonsteroidal or a mild steroid eye drop when the inflammation develops. Removal is typically recommended if the pterygium grows far enough onto the cornea to impair vision, if it causes chronic inflammation and irritation, or if it interferes with contact lens wear.. Surgical removal of a pterygium is an outpatient procedure that takes less than an hour to perform. The risk of recurrence of the pterygium after surgery can be reduced with the use of a conjunctival graft taken from under the upper eyelid that is placed over the site where the pterygium was located. The graft may be secured with sutures or with human fibrin tissue glue (sutureless pterygium ...

The C17α acetate ester, fluorometholone acetate (brand name Flarex), is also a glucocorticoid and is used for similar indications. Specifically, it is indicated for use in the treatment of steroid-responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the eye ...
Key to the issue of duration is the indication for vasoconstrictors mandated by the FDA OTC Monograph,16 which provides the regulatory basis for the wording of package inserts: "relief of redness of the eye due to minor eye irritations." This certainly translates to real-world use patterns: No one has yet thought to preventively whiten their eyes before heading out for a late night of festivities. Consumers are undoubtedly self-medicating for treatment of a self-limiting condition, and vasoconstrictors are used for relief of redness. Remarkably, given this mandated indication and recognized use, there are no published reports on relief of redness. Thirty years ago, our original work on vasoconstrictors in the histamine challenge model involved prevention of redness, with duration of action demonstrated at one to two hours after dosing for naphazoline, tetrahydrozoline and phenylephrine, but oxymetazoline was not tested.17 Studies today are still designed to establish the efficacy of ...

Aims: To compare the degree of conjunctival autograft inflammation, subconjunctival hemorrhage (SCH) and graft stability following the use of sutures or fibrin glue (FG) during pterygium surgery.. Methods: Prospective, observer masked, clinical trial. 40 eyes of 40 patients undergoing primary pterygium surgery with conjunctival autograft were allocated into two groups. Group 1 (n = 20) had FG (Tisseel) for attaching the conjunctival autograft, whereas group 2 (n = 20) had sutures. Standardized digital slit lamp photographs were taken at 1 week, 1 month and 3 months post-operatively. Sutures were masked using commercially available photo editing software. Two masked observers objectively graded the digital photographs for degree of inflammation, SCH and graft stability.. Results: 34 of the 40 patients completed the study. When using FG, the degree of inflammation was significantly less than with sutures at 1 month (p = 0.019) and 3 months (p = 0.001) post-operatively. No significant difference ...
Objective. To describe the pathogenic mechanism for a central retinal detachment in eyes with a pit of the optic disc. Design. Three patients with macular detachment associated with optic nerve head pits were prospectively controlled following pars plana vitrectomy. Methods. Three cases of macular detachment associated with congenital optic nerve pit were treated with pars plana vitrectomy and air-fluid exchange and sulphur hexafloride (SF6) gas injection. During vitrectomy posterior hyaloid removal caused visible traction on the elevated retina, when the hyaloid detached. Removing the posterior hyaloid resulted in reattachment of the macular and an increase in the visual acuity without laser treatment. Conclusion. We recommend the removal of the posterior hyaloid face during pars plana vitrectomy in patients with central macular detachment associated with a pit of the optic disc.
Importance: The early decline and recovery of retinal structure and function following iatrogenic macular detachment for retinal gene therapy is not well characterized in those with relatively preserved central visual function. Here, the recovery of retinal structure and function over the first month following iatrogenic retinal detachment for the delivery of adeno-associated viral vector encoding Rab Escort Protein 1 is described as a part of gene therapy for choroideremia. Objective: To study changes in both retinal structure and function during the first month following iatrogenic macular detachment surgery. Design, Setting, and Participants: This prospective interocularly controlled study was conducted between February 1 and December 31, 2015. Treatment consisted of a subretinal injection of 0.1 mL of a gene therapy solution containing 1 × 1011 viral particles performed unilaterally. The participants were 5 males, aged 23 to 71 years, with a clinical and genetic diagnosis of choroideremia. Main
Despite a high clinical success, relapse in Hodgkin lymphoma occurs in 10–30% of cases and 5–10% patients are nonresponsive to initial chemotherapy. The standard management of these patients includes high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplant. However, 50% of patients ultimately relapse after autotransplant which poses a big challenge. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation offers the only chance of cure in these patients. For patients who are not candidates for allogeneic stem cell transplantation, achieving cure with other possible options is highly unlikely, and thus the treatment plan becomes noncurative. Various novel agents have shown promising results but the duration of response is short lived. A standard approach to deliver the most effective treatment for these patients is still lacking. This review focuses on the treatment options currently available for relapsed and refractory disease after autotransplant.

FML- Forte is not applied if the cause of inflammation is fungi, bacteria, viruses, because the corticosteroids suppress local immunity and can strengthen the disease. Contact lenses are not contraindicated, but you should use FML- Forte before wearing them (or after removing). Among the side effects we noted impaired visual acuity, visual field restriction, there may be the development of glaucoma in case of prolonged use, secondary infections. If the underlying disease is reduced the thickness of the sclera or cornea, there is a risk that prolonged use of FML- Forte will be their perforation..

OBJECT: The purpose of the paper is to review the results of free latissimus dorsi transfer for scalp and cranium reconstruction in case of large defects with exposed brain tissue, deperiosted cranial bone, and dura that cannot be reconstructed with local flaps or skin grafts. METHODS: Free latissimus dorsi transfer was carried out in an interdisciplinary approach involving neurosurgery and plastic surgery in seven patients with subtotal and total scalp defects (two reconstruction after tumor removal, two reconstructions after longstanding osteitis, 2x tissue break down after irradiation, 1x defect reconstruction after high voltage injury). There were three male and four female patients. The age ranged from 36 to 72 years. Reconstruction was carried out with a muscle flap (1x) or a myo-cutaneous flap (6x) in combination with a split thickness skin mesh (1:1.5) graft, done in a single-stage procedure. In a retrospective clinical study the following criteria were evaluated: 1) flap healing, 2) ...
In this study, we observed a low recurrence rate (2.72%) for an anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique in primary pterygium surgery. Furthermore, no recurrence was observed during the follow-up period (mean of 17.97 months) when nylon sutures were used.. The recurrence rate after pterygium surgery is related to several factors, such as age, race, the clinical features of the pterygium, surgical experience, suture material, glue material, and the use of adjunctive agents, such as mitomycin C [12-15]. Because standardizing all parameters is implausible, a clear comparison of recurrence rates between studies are difficult. However, it is noteworthy that the recurrence rate for the anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique was relatively low compared to that of primary pterygium excision using conjunctival autograft (4.55~ 20%), which was recently reported for the same area and population [14, 16-18].. The key features of the anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique are as follows. ...
For eliciting contraction of rabbit aorta, the relative potency of agonists in terms of negative log molar ED50 were: oxymetazoline (8.4) greater than naphazoline (7.95) greater than phenylephrine (7.31) greater than tetrahydrozoline (6.5) greater than tolazoline (5.80). None of the imidazolines, however, produced maximal effects equal to that of phenylephrine. All agonists were directly acting agents. The interactions between oxymetazoline and phentolamine or tolazoline and phentolamine were competitive with pA2 values of 8.1 and 8.0, respectively. Phentolamine with tetrahydrozoline, naphazoline or phenylephrine produced nearly equal KB values. Thus, all the agonists and alpha adrenoceptor blockers must act at a common site in rabbit aorta. As expected, the contraction of rabbit aorta produced by an imidazole histamine was competitively antagonized by the histamine 1 antagonist, chlorpheniramine (K B 7.6 X 10(-9) M). The antagonist failed to block the contraction produced by the imidazolines ...
Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is an uncommon vascular defect causing blood flow obstruction that usually develops in the first few years of life.. This defect is a narrowing (stenosis) of the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body (the aorta), especially at major branch points.. The condition is described as supravalvular because the section of the aorta that is narrowed is located just above the valve that connects the aorta with the heart (the aortic valve).. Isolated SVAS is caused by genetic changes in the elastin gene (ELN) that can be passed from parent to child. Elastin defects are associated with connective tissue abnormalities, such joint problems, hernias, and cardiovascular disease. In children with Williams syndrome, the elastin gene is deleted along with 25-27 other genes that cause developmental delays and hormone problems. The elastin gene provides instructions for making a protein called tropoelastin. Elastin is the major component of ...
Purpose To analyze conjunctival cytological features 1 month after pterygium excision using limbo-conjunctival autograft (LCA) with and without intraoperative mitomycin C and to assess tissue short-term evolution in both situations.; Methods Fifty-nine primary nasal pterygia from 59 patients were excised with LCA. Twenty-nine were treated with intraoperative mitomycin C 0.02% (MMC+) and 30 were treated without it (MMC-). Impression cytology was performed in nasal and temporal conjunctiva before and 1 month after the excision. Goblet cell density (GCD) and nucleus-to-cytoplasm nongoblet epithelial cell ratio were quantified.; Results Surgical strategy comparisons (intergroup comparisons): All the preoperative data were, in mean, within the reference range, except for a slight goblet cell hyperplasia in the area of the lesion in MMC+ but no significant differences were found between the groups (p = 0.079 for GCD and p = 0.245 for nucleus-to-cytoplasm ratio; analysis of variance). Clinically ...

The lesions of the aortic root, which are supravalvular aortic stenosis and coronary ostial stenosis, in familial hypercholesterolemia were studied using two-dimensional echocardiography. The subjects were 25 heterozygotes, six homozygotes and 30 control subjects. The internal diameters of the aortic ring, the sinus of Valsalva and the supravalvular aortic ring were measured. Measurement variation due to body size was avoided by normalizing the latter two values by the diameter of the aortic ring. Four heterozygotes and all homozygotes were judged to have stenosis of the supravalvular aortic ring; none of heterozygotes and four homozygotes had stenosis of the sinus of Valsalva. In three of the four patients with stenosis of both the supravalvular aortic ring and the sinus of Valsalva, a pressure gradient was demonstrated. The degree of supravalvular aortic stenosis correlated with the serum cholesterol level but not with patient age. All homozygotes, even very young ones, had a severe aortic ...

Neuroblastoma is a malignancy of the developing sympathetic nervous system that often presents with widespread metastatic disease, resulting in survival rates of less than 50%. To determine the spectrum of somatic mutation in high-risk neuroblastoma, we studied 240 affected individuals (cases) using a combination of whole-exome, genome and transcriptome sequencing as part of the Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET) initiative. Here we report a low median exonic mutation frequency of 0.60 per Mb (0.48 nonsilent) and notably few recurrently mutated genes in these tumors. Genes with significant somatic mutation frequencies included ALK (9.2% of cases), PTPN11 (2.9%), ATRX (2.5%, and an additional 7.1% had focal deletions), MYCN (1.7%, causing a recurrent p.Pro44Leu alteration) and NRAS (0.83%). Rare, potentially pathogenic germline variants were significantly enriched in ALK, CHEK2, PINK1 and BARD1. The relative paucity of recurrent somatic mutations in ...

A mastoidectomy is a surgical procedure that removes diseased mastoid air cells. These cells sit behind your ear in a hollow space in your skull. The diseased cells are often the result of an ear infection that has spread into your skull.. The infection sometimes spreads to the temporal bone. Your doctor may need to remove parts of the infected bone if this occurs. This results in hearing loss.. There are several types of mastoidectomy, including:. ...
At the ASCO Plenary Session where the HR-NBL1/SIOPEN trial was presented, formal discussant Julie R. Park, MD, of the University of Washington, Seattle, said, "Large randomized trials have previously shown that myeloablative therapy improves outcomes in high-risk neuroblastoma, and it is now considered standard of care.". Dr. Park explained that the COJEC regimen used in this study may have contributed to the lower-than-expected 3-year event-free survival in the CEM arm. Previous studies conducted by the Childrens Oncology Group achieved a 3-year event-free survival of 46% with CEM, but those studies used a different induction regimen with lower doses of cisplatin and etoposide and did not include carboplatin.. "It is possible that rapid COJEC had a negative interaction with CEM, but not BuMel," she said.. "The SIOPEN trial is a great achievement and shows the unity of 20 European nations. This study confirms the importance of myeloablative therapy in a cohort of high-risk neuroblastoma with a ...
When deciding which anti-inflammatory to use, keep in mind each drugs mechanisms of action. Corticosteroids act on various inflammatory responses, including intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1)-mediated cell adhesion, cytokines/chemokines/MMPs expression and induction of lymphocyte apoptosis.6-8 Simply put, corticosteroids have a broad-spectrum mechanism of action when it comes to controlling inflammation. However, their long-term use in ocular conditions is not recommended because of steroid-related side-effects such as increased intraocular pressure and cataract formation.9 Thankfully, not all corticosteroids are created equal. A "soft" steroid such as loteprednol or fluorometholone could be used for four to six weeks without having to worry about the long-term side effects. Sometimes I will also pulse the soft steroid BID to TID dosage for one week on and two weeks off, then repeat as needed with close clinical follow ups. Cyclosporine (CsA) is another anti-inflammatory medication used ...
Medrysone (INN, USAN) (brand names HMS, Medrocort, others; former developmental code name NSC-63278), also known as hydroxymethylprogesterone, methylhydroxyprogesterone, or hydroxymesterone, as well as 6α-methyl-11β-hydroxyprogesterone or 6α-methyl-11β-hydroxypregn-4-ene-3,20-dione, is a synthetic glucocorticoid that is or has been used in the treatment of inflammatory eye diseases. It has been discontinued in the United States.

BACKGROUND: Mandibular reconstruction after ablative surgery is challenging not only for the amount of bone tissue needed following bone loss after benign or malignant tumor surgical removal, but mainly to reconstruct bone shape and structure necessary for subsequent implant insertion to preserve the function (speech, swallowing and chewing) and aesthetic of the lower face. Several different techniques for maxillary bone defects reconstruction have been described. The aim of our work is to describe a new technique for mandibular reconstruction that uses an intramural distractor, which is placed in one surgical step and without the need for a skin incision ...

A cardiovascular problem called Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis (SVAS) can be associated with Williams Syndrome. SVAS is the narrowing of the large blood vessel which carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. This problem could cause shortness of breath, chest pain and ultimately heart failure if not treated. Decreased birth weight and failure to gain weight normally is also common. There can also be digestive and urinary tract difficulties.. ...

Otologic surgery often involves a mastoidectomy, which is the removal of a portion of the mastoid region of the temporal bone, to safely access the middle and inner ear. The surgery is challenging because many critical structures are embedded within the bone, making them difficult to see and requiring a high level of accuracy with the surgical dissection instrument, a high-speed drill. We propose to automate the mastoidectomy portion of the surgery using a compact, bone-attached robot. The system described in this paper is a milling robot with four degrees-of-freedom (DOF) that is fixed to the patient during surgery using a rigid positioning frame screwed into the surface of the bone. The target volume to be removed is manually identified by the surgeon pre-operatively in a computed tomography (CT) scan and converted to a milling path for the robot. The surgeon attaches the robot to the patient in the operating room and monitors the procedure. Several design considerations are discussed in the ...

RESULTS: In the adult population, 120 autograft reinterventions in 113 patients (1.03%/patient-year) and 76 homograft reinterventions in 67 patients (0.65%/patient-year) and, in the pediatric population, 14 autograft reinterventions in 13 patients (0.91%/patient-year) and 42 homograft reinterventions in 31 patients (2.72%/patient-year) were observed. Of the autograft and homograft reinterventions, 17.9% and 21.2% were performed because of endocarditis, respectively. The subcoronary technique in the adult population resulted in significantly superior autograft durability (freedom from autograft reintervention: 97% at 10 years and 91% at 12 years; P , .001). The root replacement technique without root reinforcement (hazard ratio, 2.4; 95% confidence interval, 1.4-4.1) and the presence of pure aortic insufficiency preoperatively (hazard ratio, 2.3; 95% confidence interval, 1.5-3.5) were statistically significant predictors for a shorter time to reoperation. The center volume had a significant ...

Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness and limitations of autologous osteochondral grafting for the treatment of articular cartilage defects in the knee. Methods: The subjects were 40 patients who had undergone autologous osteochondral grafting. Fifteen knees had cartilage defects combined with anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL group), 15 knees had cartilage defects combined with osteoarthritis (OA group), and 10 knees had cartilage defects combined with osteochondral dissecans (OCD group). From one to five osteochondral pegs were harvested from the less-weight-bearing periphery of the articular surface of the femoral condyle and grafted to cartilage defects. The clinical results were assessed based on the Lysholm score and radiographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) image assessment. Results: The median follow-up duration was 24 months (range from 12 to 41 months). The mean Lysholm score following treatment was improved in all groups. The patients who had cartilage defects combined ...
