Comparative Analysis of Cellular and Growth Factor Composition in Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate and Platelet-Rich Plasma

The purpose of this study was to quantify the stem cell and growth factor (GF) contents in the bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) prepared from whole blood using a protocol established in our laboratory. We examined 10 patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head who were treated by autologous BMAC transplantation at our hospital between...

Frailty predicts trajectories of quality of life over time among British community-dwelling older people

Purpose To investigate associations between baseline frailty status and subsequent changes in QOL over time among community-dwelling older people. Methods Among 363 community-dwelling older people ≥65 years, frailty was measured using Frailty Index (FI) constructed from 40 deficits at baseline. QOL was measured using Older People’s Quality of Life Questionnaire (OPQOL) six times...

Subsequent shunt closure after targeted medical therapy can be an effective strategy for secundum atrial septal defect with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension: two case reports

Secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) is the most common form of congenital heart disease in adults. Surgical and transcatheter closures of ASD are widely accepted therapeutic approaches. In patients with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), however, the closure of the defect is still controversial. We report two cases of ASD patients with severe PAH successfully repaired...

Reference Values and Age Differences in Body Composition of Community-Dwelling Older Japanese Men and Women: A Pooled Analysis of Four Cohort Studies

Objectives To determine age- and sex-specific body composition reference values and investigate age differences in these parameters for community-dwelling older Japanese men and women, using direct segmental multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis. Methods We conducted a pooled analysis of data collected in four cohort studies between 2008 and 2012: Kusatsu Longitudinal...
