Failure rates in some surgical mesh products used to treat prolapse injury are unacceptably high according to a new biomedical review conducted by a medical materials expert, who also believes patients should have received more information around the risk before being treated for urinary incontinence with surgical mesh products.
Our result suggests preoperative albumin level as an independent risk factor for PPCs in elderly gastric cancer (GC) patients after elective laparoscopic gastrectomy. We also suggest that those elderly hypoalbuminemic GC patients may benefit from more intensive perioperative care including perioperative nutritional status improvement.
Team of University of Colorado Cancer Center researchers sheds light on p63 activity in squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, providing an actionable path forward to drug development against this known cause of cancer.
Children who have access to green spaces close to their homes have fewer respiratory problems, such as asthma and wheezing, in adulthood, according to new research presented at the European Respiratory Society International Congress. In contrast, children who are exposed to air pollution are more likely to experience respiratory problems as young adults.
Artificial intelligence (AI) can be an invaluable aid to help lung doctors interpret respiratory symptoms accurately and make a correct diagnosis, according to new research presented at the European Respiratory Society International Congress.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), an umbrella term for a number of gut disorders -- including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease -- remains a clinical challenge. Now, researchers from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP), in collaboration with scientists at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, have identified a protein that drives intestinal inflammation. This finding highlights new opportunities for creating targeted therapeutics. The study published today in Cell Reports.
Thermal ablation is a safe, effective treatment for early-stage lung cancer, according to a new study. The results show that ablation may be an effective alternative for patients who cannot undergo lung cancer surgery because of age or health status.
The new system did not minimize pre-transplant dialysis exposure for patients who were not waitlisted preemptively.
A new guideline focused on the role of weight management in treating adult obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been published online by the American Thoracic Society in the Sept. 15 American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Medical scribes transcribe information during clinical visits in real time into electronic health records (EHRs) under physician supervision. A small study of 18 primary care physicians evaluated the association of using medical scribes with physician workflow and patient experience.
