Background: Infants with fetal growth retardation (FGR) are prone to intestinal disorders. Objectives: Aim of the study was to determine the role of mucosal defense ability in formation of gut injury in infants with FGR. Materials and Methods: 44 premature infants who were admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit were divided into two groups: 20 infants with FGR (FGR group) and 24 appropriate-for-gestational age newborns (AGA group). Control group consisted of 22 premature infants who were delivered after uncomplicated pregnancy. Gut barrier function was evaluated by detecting serum intestinal trefoil factor (ITF) and intestinal fatty acid binding protein (IFABP). The level of serum IFABP and ITF was measured by using ELISA method. Results: FGR group showed significantly higher ITF concentration than AGA group on the first days of life (P ˂ 0.01). High level of ITF in the FGR group significantly declines up to 7th -10th day of life (P ˂ 0.01). This reduction was accompanied by increase of IFABP which is a marker of ischemic intestinal mucosal injury. Correlation analyses showed that ITF had a negative correlation with IFABP. Conclusions: Infants with fetal growth retardation are characterized by a high level of ITF on the first days of life. This protects intestinal mucosa under hypoxic conditions. Its subsequent decline accompanied by an increase of IFABP reflects the depletion of Goblet cells to secret ITF causing damage to the integrity of intestinal mucosal barrier. © 2016, Growth & Development Research Center.

It was studied the erectile dysfunction (ED), the severity of depression and stress in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) in the stage of compensation and decompensation, also investigated the relationship between the duration of the disease and the clinical manifestation of the various forms of ED. On a material of 293 male patients aged 17-60 years. The duration of diabetes ranged from 6 months to 30 years (at avarage - 17,4±17,5 years). Performed routine and special methods of investigation (pharmacodopplerography), also fixed psychogenic, organic and mixed forms of erectile dysfunction in correlation with the clinical form of the current CD according International index of Erectile function (EF) and the tables of Juneman et al. Found that in patients with type I and II diabetes anxiety and depression were found in 32.1 % of cases, and were accompanied by ED. In the state of decompensation of diabetes mellitus manifestation of anxiety, depression and erectile dysfunction were observed more often than in a state of long-term compensation. Between the increase in the period of limitation of the DM and the incidence of organic and mixed forms of ED there is a direct correlation, and between the increase of diabetes duration and the frequency of occurrence of psychogenic form of erectile dysfunction - inversly relationship.

BACKGROUND:: According to the current literature, the recommended surgical treatment is circumferential spinal fusion, including both anterior and posterior procedures, for progressive thoracolumbar kyphosis in mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS). The purpose of this study was to report our experience with the posterior-only approach and instrumented fusion for MPS kyphosis. METHODS:: Six consecutive patients with MPS and thoracolumbar junctional kyphosis managed with the posterior-only approach were included. Demographic data, the type of MPS, medical comorbidities, and accompanying clinical manifestations were recorded. Measurements recorded on radiographs for the study included the presence of any coronal-plane deformity, fusion levels, changes in the local kyphosis angle (LKA), proximal and distal junctional kyphosis angles, and the apical vertebral wedge angle. RESULTS:: The average age at the time of surgery was 6.6 (range, 4 to 12) years. The average follow-up duration was 52.6 (range, 44 to 64) months. The mean preoperative LKA of 63.1±15.8 (range, 48 to 92) degrees decreased to a mean of 16.6±8.4 (range, 5 to 30) degrees immediately after surgery. At the latest follow-up, the mean LKA was 19.6±8.8 (range, 8 to 34) degrees. Apical vertebral listhesis was reduced in all patients with surgical correction. The average apical vertebral wedge angle of 15 (range, 11 to 19) degrees at the early postoperative period decreased to 4.6 (range, 2 to 7) degrees at the latest follow-up. Adjacent-segment problems occurred in 2 patients. There were no neurological complications or implant failures in any of the patients. CONCLUSIONS:: Posterior-only corrective techniques and instrumented fusion with pedicle screws for progressive thoracolumbar junctional kyphosis in MPS patients are safe and effective methods. Its results are comparable to those achieved with conventional circumferential fusion. However, patients should be monitored closely for adjacent-segment problems. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:: Level IV—retrospective case series. Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved. Source

One of the main goals of modern orthopedic dentistry is the development of high quality removable complete dentures. Some materials used in removable complete denture construction consist of polymethyl methacrylate, which causes of serious pathological process in the tissue of denture's zone, as a result - weakness of adaptation ability of organism and dissatisfaction. Interest increases in production of different types of removable dentures made of thermoplastic materials, which is biocompatible with the organ and tissues of the oral cavity. Interest to manufacture of removable complete denture made of thermoplastic materials as a progressive technologic and aesthetic solution rises constantly in recent years. The aim of this study was to examine the properties of thermoplastic materials in orthopedic dentistry. The results of this investigation revealed good functional and adaptation properties of removable complete denture made of thermoplastic materials. Source

The main objective of the study was to investigate the efficacy of using a mono and combined therapy drugs Impaza and Nebido for secondary prevention and treatment of ED. It was examined 79 diabetic patients with ED. The age of patients within 18-60 years, duration of diabetes - from 6 months to 29 years, ED - from 6 months to 12 years. To identify the ED was used International index of erectile function (IIEF). The patients were divided into 3 groups: I - patients with organic ED, II - with psychogenic ED and III group - with mixed ED. Drags Impaza and Nebido used in all three groups, as mono or as complex therapy. It was using routine (anamnesis, clinico- biochemical data) and special (pharmacodopplerography) methods of study. The study did not include patients with increased level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), polycythemia, obstruction of the urinary tract with the prostate size increasing and prostate cancer. Statistical data was studed by using Pearson's χ2-test. The results showed the following. Indicators of glycohemoglobin above normal reduces the effectiveness of the treatment of erectile dysfunction in patients with diabetes mellitus.The combined use of drugs Impaza and Nebido in patients with ED had a positive resultes in 41,4-91,7% of the cases. These drugs are effective in diabetic patients with mild and moderate form of erectile dysfunction. Source
