  1. The Symbiotic Effect of a New Nutraceutical with Yeast beta-Glucan, Prebiotics, Minerals, and Silybum marianum (Silymarin) for Recovering Metabolic Homeostasis via Pgc-1 alpha, Il-6, and Il-10 Gene Expression in a Type-2 Diabetes Obesity Model

    ANTIOXIDANTS, v.11, n.3, article ID 447, 24p, 2022

    The use of natural products and derivatives for the prevention and control of non-communicable chronic diseases, such as type-2 diabetes (T2D), obesity, and hepatic steatosis is a way to achieve homeostasis through different metabolic pathways. Thus, male C57BL/6 mice were divided into the follow...

  2. Single-use flexible ureteroscopes: update and perspective in developing countries. A narrative review

    INTERNATIONAL BRAZ J UROL, v.48, n.3, p.456-467, 2022

    Flexible ureteroscopy is a well-established method for treatment of urinary stones but flexible ureteroscopes are expensive and fragile devices with a very limited lifetime. Since 2006 with the advent of digital flexible ureteroscopes a great evolution has occurred. The first single-use flexible ...

  3. Plasma advanced glycation end products and soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products as indicators of sterol content in human carotid atherosclerotic plaques

    DIABETES & VASCULAR DISEASE RESEARCH, v.19, n.1, article ID 14791641221085200, 9p, 2022

    Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are independently related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and favor cholesterol and oxysterol accumulation in macrophage foam cells. Soluble RAGE (sRAGE) impairs cellular AGE signaling alleviating the deleterious effects of AGE in atherogenesis. The associat...

  4. Phrenic Nerve Block and Respiratory Effort in Pigs and Critically Ill Patients with Acute Lung Injury

    ANESTHESIOLOGY, v.136, n.5, p.763-778, 2022

    Background: Strong spontaneous inspiratory efforts can be difficult to control and prohibit protective mechanical ventilation. Instead of using deep sedation and neuromuscular blockade, the authors hypothesized that perineural administration of lidocaine around the phrenic nerve would reduce tida...

  5. Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio Predicts Cancer Outcome in Locally Advanced Clear Renal Cell Carcinoma

    CLINICAL GENITOURINARY CANCER, v.20, n.2, p.102-106, 2022

    Background: To evaluate the association of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) with recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with locally advanced nonmetastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) under-going radical nephrectomy. Material and Methods: We retrospec...

  6. Combined spinal and general anesthesia attenuate tumor promoting effects of surgery. An experimental animal study

    ANNALS OF MEDICINE AND SURGERY, v.75, article ID 103398, 8p, 2022

    Background: Radical prostatectomy, a standard management approach for localized Prostate Cancer (PC), may cause a stress response associated with immune modulating effects. Regional anesthesia was hypothesized to reduce the immune effects of surgery by minimizing the neuroendocrine surgical stres...

  7. miR-22 and miR-205 Drive Tumor Aggressiveness of Mucoepidermoid Carcinomas of Salivary Glands

    FRONTIERS IN ONCOLOGY, v.11, article ID 786150, 13p, 2022

    ObjectivesTo integrate mRNA and miRNA expression profiles of mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs) and normal salivary gland (NSGs) tissue samples and identify potential drivers. Material and MethodsGene and miRNA expression arrays were performed in 35 MECs and six NSGs. ResultsWe found 46 differentia...

  8. Postoperative Pulmonary Hemodynamics and Systemic Inflammatory Response in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Surgery for Congenital Heart Defects

    MEDIATORS OF INFLAMMATION, v.2022, article ID 3977585, 12p, 2022

    There is scarce information about the relationships between postoperative pulmonary hemodynamics, inflammation, and outcomes in pediatric patients with congenital cardiac communications undergoing surgery. We prospectively studied 40 patients aged 11 (8-17) months (median with interquartile range...

  9. Timing of surgery following SARS-CoV-2 infection: an international prospective cohort study

    ANAESTHESIA, v.76, n.6, p.748-758, 2021

    Peri-operative SARS-CoV-2 infection increases postoperative mortality. The aim of this study was to determine the optimal duration of planned delay before surgery in patients who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection. This international, multicentre, prospective cohort study included patients undergoing ...

  10. Effects of pre-operative isolation on postoperative pulmonary complications after elective surgery: an international prospective cohort study

    ANAESTHESIA, v.76, n.11, p.1454-1464, 2021

    We aimed to determine the impact of pre-operative isolation on postoperative pulmonary complications after elective surgery during the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. We performed an international prospective cohort study including patients undergoing elective surgery in October 2020. Isolation was d...
