Perception of inappropriate cardiopulmonary resuscitation by clinicians working in emergency departments and ambulance services: The REAPPROPRIATE international, multi-centre, cross sectional survey
IntroductionCardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is often started irrespective of comorbidity or cause of arrest. We aimed to determine the prevalence of perception of inappropriate CPR of the last cardiac arrest encountered ...
Incidence and morphometry of caroticoclinoid foramina in Greek dry human skulls
Background: Ossification of the caroticoclinoid ligament (CCL) and formation of a caroticoclinoid foramen (CCF) may impose significant risk to neurosurgeons by impeding mobilization of the cavernous segment of the internal ...
Platelet-rich plasma ultrasound-guided injection in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome: A placebo-controlled clinical study
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate whether and to what extent a single injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), under ultrasound guidance, can improve the clinical symptoms of patients with a mild to moderate ...
Decreased DNA Disruption in the Porcine Neocortex with Erythromycin Preconditioning during Prolonged Hypothermic Circulatory Arrest: Evidence for Neuroprotection
We have previously reported that the neocortex is selectively vulnerable to injury in an acute porcine model of hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA) at 18°C. In view of recent evidence showing that pharmacologic preconditioning ...
Approaching the atrium through the intraparietal sulcus: Mapping the sulcal morphology and correlating the surgical corridor to underlying fiber tracts
BACKROUND: Although the operative corridor used during the intraparietal transsulcal approach to the atrium has been previously investigated, most anatomical studies focus on its relationship to the optic radiations. ...
Prechiasmatic sulcus and optic strut: an anatomic study in dry skulls
Background: Although safe surgical access to the cavernous sinus is related to understanding the anatomical and ethnic variants of the prechiasmatic sulcus and the optic strut, there remains a paucity of studies of the ...
Modulation of central glucocorticoid receptors in short- and long-term experimental hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is associated with a significant increase in circulating glucocorticoid levels and hyperactivity of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis. The aim of this study was to examine whether the HPA axis ...
Pharmacological neuroprotection in cardiac surgery: Effectiveness of pharmacologic-preconditioning with erythromycin
Regardless of the degree of advances in neuroprotective strategies, and despite the technological progress in neuromonitoring, brain injury still remains the “Achilles' heel” in cardiac surgery. A large number of pharmacological ...
Single injection of platelet-rich plasma as a novel treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
Both in vitro and in vivo experiments have confirmed that platelet-rich plasma has therapeutic effects on many neuropathies, but its effects on carpal tunnel syndrome remain poorly understood. We aimed to investigate whether ...
