Validation of the modified Sgarbossa criteria for acute coronary occlusion in the setting of left bundle branch block: A retrospective case-control study.
(American heart journal, 2015-12)
The modified Sgarbossa criteria were proposed in a derivation study to be superior to the original criteria for diagnosing acute coronary occlusion (ACO) in left bundle branch block (LBBB). The new rule replaces the third ...
Associations of PI3KR1 and mTOR polymorphisms with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma risk and gene-environment interactions in Eastern Chinese populations.
(Scientific reports, 2015-01)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the PI3K/PTEN/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway may contribute to carcinogenesis. We genotyped five potentially functional PIK3R1 and mTOR SNPs in 1116 esophageal squamous cell cancer (ESCC) ...
Genetic variants in fanconi anemia pathway genes BRCA2 and FANCA predict melanoma survival.
(The Journal of investigative dermatology, 2015-02)
Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is the most lethal skin cancer. The Fanconi anemia (FA) pathway involved in DNA crosslink repair may affect CM susceptibility and prognosis. Using data derived from published genome-wide association ...
Cognitive Function: Is There More to Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation Than Stroke?
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-08-03)
Baseline EEG pattern on continuous ICU EEG monitoring and incidence of seizures.
(J Clin Neurophysiol, 2015-04)
PURPOSE: To identify the probability of detecting nonconvulsive seizures based on the initial pattern seen in the first 30 minutes of continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring. METHODS: Continuous EEG monitoring reports from 243 ...
Patient expectation is the most important predictor of discharge destination after primary total joint arthroplasty.
(J Arthroplasty, 2015-04)
The purpose of this study was to identify preoperative predictors of discharge destination after total joint arthroplasty. A retrospective study of three hundred and seventy-two consecutive patients who underwent primary ...
The TALKS study to improve communication, logistical, and financial barriers to live donor kidney transplantation in African Americans: protocol of a randomized clinical trial.
(BMC Nephrol, 2015-10-09)
BACKGROUND: Live donor kidney transplantation (LDKT), an optimal therapy for many patients with end-stage kidney disease, is underutilized, particularly by African Americans. Potential recipient difficulties initiating and ...
Genetic Variants of the MDM2 Gene Are Predictive of Treatment-Related Toxicities and Overall Survival in Patients With Advanced NSCLC.
(Clin Lung Cancer, 2015-09)
INTRODUCTION: Platinum agents can cause the formation of DNA adducts and induce apoptosis to eliminate tumor cells. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of genetic variants of MDM2 on chemotherapy-related ...
Contemporary trends and predictors of postacute service use and routine discharge home after stroke.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-02-23)
BACKGROUND: Returning home after the hospital is a primary aim for healthcare; however, additional postacute care (PAC) services are sometimes necessary for returning stroke patients to their pre-event status. Recent trends ...
Renal systems biology of patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome.
(Kidney Int, 2015-10)
A systems biology approach was used to comprehensively examine the impact of renal disease and hemodialysis (HD) on patient response during critical illness. To achieve this, we examined the metabolome, proteome, ...
