- Unplanned readmissions in younger and older adult patients: the role of healthcare-related adverse events. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):35EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Readmissions are common in medical patients, and, thus, remain a reason for concern in terms of patient safety and quality of care. AEs, responsible for to the index admission, were not associated with readmissions. ADL dependency was the only factor associated with readmission in patients of all ages and older patients, indicating that determining which patients are at risk for readmissions is not easy.
- Safety of outpatient anterior cervical discectomy and fusion: a systematic review and meta-analysis. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):34EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: In this study, outpatient surgery has a similar risk with inpatient surgery, and no difference of morbidity between outpatient and inpatient was found. Because of short operative time and moderate postoperative pain, we believe that outpatient cervical spine surgery is a safe and convenient alternative procedure, which also decrease the cost of care. Besides, postoperative complications including dysphagia and hematoma should be noticed.
- Molecular analysis of the CTSK gene in a cohort of 33 Brazilian families with pycnodysostosis from a cluster in a Brazilian Northeast region. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):33EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: The high frequency of pycnodysostosis in Ceará State is the consequence of the high inbreeding in that region. Several mutations, probably introduced a long time ago in Ceará, must have spread due to consanguineous marriages and internal population migration. However, the novel mutation seems to have a single origin in Ceará, suggestive of a founder effect.
- Waiting time for radiation therapy after breast-conserving surgery in early breast cancer: a retrospective analysis of local relapse and distant metastases in 615 patients. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):32EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that no correlation exists between the timing of postoperative radiotherapy and the risk of local relapse or distant metastasis development in a particular subgroup of women with node-negative early breast cancer.

The stem cell as the building block necessary for tissue reparation and homeostasis plays a major role in regenerative medicine. Their unique property of being pluripotent, able to control immune process and even secrete a whole army of anabolic mediators, draws interest. While new arthroscopic procedures and techniques involving stem cells have been established over the last decade with improved outcomes, failures and dissatisfaction still occur. Therefore, there is increasing interest in ways to improve the healing response. MSCs are particularly promising for this task given their regenerative potential. While methods of isolating those cells are no longer poses a challenge, the best way of application is not clear. Several experiments in the realm of basic science and animal models have recently been published, addressing this issue, yet the application in clinical practice has lagged. This review provides an overview addressing the current standing of MSCs in the field of arthroscopic surgery.
- Evaluation and clinical significance of cyclin-dependent kinase5 expression in cervical lesions: a clinical research study in Guangxi, China. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):28EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: CDK5 may play a vital role in the development of cervical cancer, which may be a marker for the diagnosis, therapy and prognosis of cervical cancer.
- Modified Hughes procedure for reconstruction of large full-thickness lower eyelid defects following tumor resection. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):27EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: The modified Hughes procedure remains a well-suited technique for reconstructing lower eyelid defects involving up to 100 % of the horizontal lid length. Leaving Müller's muscle attached to the Hughes flap might prevent premature flap dehiscence without increasing the frequency of upper lid retractions in turn. Whether using a free skin graft or a skin-muscle advancement flap for anterior lamella reconstruction, seems to be insignificant for the functional-aesthetical outcome.

- HDAC inhibition activates the apoptosome via Apaf1 upregulation in hepatocellular carcinoma. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Med Res 2016; 21(1):26EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: The present data show that siRNA-knockdown of HDAC1-3 plays a major role in mediating apoptotic response to HDAC inhibitors through regulation of Apaf1.
