Transcatheter aortic valve-in-valve implantation of a CoreValve in a JenaValve prosthesis: a case report

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has become an accepted treatment modality for inoperable or high-risk surgical patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. We report the case of a 70-year-old white man who was treated for severe symptomatic aortic regurgitation using transcatheter aortic valve implantation from the apical approach. Because of recurrent cardiac ...

Generalization of French and Portuguese plural alternations and initial syllable protection

We present two cases of morphophonological alternations in the plural of nouns, one from French and one from Brazilian Portuguese. In both of them, monosyllabic items are protected from right-edge alternations more than polysyllabic items are, an asymmetry we attribute to privileged protection of initial syllables. We implement the analyses of the two languages using ...

Comparative study of the modulation of fructose/sucrose-induced hepatic steatosis by mixed lipid formulations varying in unsaturated fatty acid content

Background Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease in developed countries. NAFLD encompasses a spectrum of diseases, ranging from hepatic steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cirrhosis, and liver failure. The etiology of NAFLD remains unclear but is thought to relate to increased fatty acid flux within the liver that ...

Normalization in MALDI-TOF imaging datasets of proteins: practical considerations

Normalization is critically important for the proper interpretation of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) imaging datasets. The effects of the commonly used normalization techniques based on total ion count (TIC) or vector norm normalization are significant, and they are frequently beneficial. In certain cases, however, these normalization algorithms may produce ...

13C-Urea breath test threshold calculation and evaluation for the detection of Helicobacter pylori infection in children

Background The 13C-urea breath test (UBT) is performed in adults and children with epigastric pain for non-invasively diagnosing a suspected H. pylori infection. Criteria for UBT interpretation have not been generally agreed on and test reliability has not been established in children of different ages. This study aimed at identifying reliable UBT thresholds in children by using ...

Frühübergang in ein grundständiges Gymnasium – Übergang in ein privilegiertes Entwicklungsmilieu?

Der Beitrag geht der Frage nach, ob Schülerinnen und Schüler, die eine sechsjährige Grundschule bereits nach der 4. Klasse verlassen und auf ein grundständiges Gymnasium wechseln, höhere Lernzuwächse im Leseverständnis und in Mathematik erreichen. Auf der Grundlage von Daten der ELEMENT-Studie wurde die Leistungsentwicklung von Schülerinnen und Schülern aus Berliner grundständigen ...

Brief posttrial REM sleep deprivation impairs discrimination learning in rats

Deprivation of REM sleep (REMD) for about 3 h immediately after each training session greatly impaired brightness discrimination learning in a Y-maze. REMD beginning 2 h after training had no effect. Immediate REMD did not impair position learning in this maze. These results suggested that one function of REM sleep is the consolidation or assimilation of information for which the ...

REM sleep deprivation impairs serial reversal and probability maximizing in rats

Deprivation of REM sleep (REMD) for about 3 h immediately after training greatly impaired serial spatial reversal and spatial-probability maximizing. REMD beginning 3 h after training had no effect. These results are consistent with the fact that these tasks clearly distinguish the learning ability of species with REM sleep (mammals, birds) from those without REM sleep (fish). The ...

Cardiovascular complications in CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the attainment of KDIGO suggestions for mineral and bone disorder (MBD) markers and the presence of various ankle brachial systolic pressure index (ABI) levels in our hemodialysis (HD) patients. Methods: In a cross-sectional study we analyzed 137 patients (85 male; mean age 55.8±14.2 years) ...
