  1. Characterization of swallowing disorders in myasthenia gravis through a fibre-optic endoscopic evaluation


    Aim: Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disease characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the muscles under voluntary control, aggravated by effort, with the possibility of developing swallowing disorders. The aim of this study was to characterize swallowing disorders in MG throu...

  2. Guidelines for Perioperative Care for Liver Transplantation: Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Recommendations

    TRANSPLANTATION, v.106, n.3, p.552-561, 2022

    Background. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal, evidence-based, program of care developed to minimize the response to surgical stress, associated with reduced perioperative morbidity and hospital stay. This study presents the specific ERAS Society recommendations for liver tra...

  3. Postoperative hypothermia following non-cardiac high-risk surgery: A prospective study of temporal patterns and risk factors

    PLOS ONE, v.16, n.11, article ID e0259789, 14p, 2021

    Background and objectives Hypothermia occurs commonly during surgery and can cause postoperative complications. We aimed to describe the characteristics and outcomes of hypothermia in patients undergoing major surgeries. Methods This prospective, observational, multicenter study of a nationally r...

  4. Blood cell adhesion to arterial filters analysis by scanning electron microscopy and real-time PCR assay: observational clinical study in cardiac surgery patients

    PERFUSION-UK, v.37, n.2, p.144-151, 2022

    Introduction: Arterial filter is the part of the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit where blood cells are exposed to high mechanical stress and where cellular aggregates may fasten in large quantities. The aim of this study was to analyse blood cell adhesiveness in the arterial filter through scannin...

  5. Short-Course of Methylprednisolone Improves Respiratory Functional Parameters After 120 Days in Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients (Metcovid Trial): A Randomized Clinical Trial

    FRONTIERS IN MEDICINE, v.8, article ID 758405, 9p, 2021

    Background: The use of corticosteroids may help control the cytokine storm occurring in acute respiratory failure due to the severe form of COVID-19. We evaluated the postacute effect of corticosteroids used during the acute phase, such as impairment in pulmonary function parameters, on day 120 (...

  6. High flow nasal catheter therapy versus non-invasive positive pressure ventilation in acute respiratory failure (RENOVATE trial): protocol and statistical analysis plan

    CRITICAL CARE AND RESUSCITATION, v.24, n.1, p.61-70, 2022

    Background: The best way to offer non-invasive respiratory support across several aetiologies of acute respiratory failure (ARF) is presently unclear. Both high flow nasal catheter (HFNC) therapy and non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) may improve outcomes in critically ill patient...

  7. Atrial Fibrillation and Cancer

    FRONTIERS IN CARDIOVASCULAR MEDICINE, v.8, article ID 590768, 5p, 2021

    Cancer patients have a higher risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) than general population, the pathophysiology mechanisms involves the pro inflammatory status of immune system in these patients and the exacerbated inflammatory response to cancer treatment and surgeries. Adequate management and proph...

  8. A machine learning framework for the evaluation of myocardial rotation in patients with noncompaction cardiomyopathy

    PLOS ONE, v.16, n.11, article ID e0260195, 13p, 2021

    Aims Noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCC) is considered a genetic cardiomyopathy with unknown pathophysiological mechanisms. We propose to evaluate echocardiographic predictors for rigid body rotation (RBR) in NCC using a machine learning (ML) based model. Methods and results Forty-nine outpatients...
