Carbon dioxide insufflation during screening unsedated colonoscopy: a randomised clinical trial
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 12:54:42 +0100 | European Journal of Cancer Prevention
One of the methods used to reduce pain and discomfort during colonoscopy is insufflation of carbon dioxide instead of air. However, the actual benefit of carbon dioxide insufflation is not unequivocally proven. The aim of the study was to evaluate the advantages of carbon dioxide insufflation during screening colonoscopy. A total of 200 patients undergoing screening colonoscopy between 2010 and 2011 were included in the prospective, randomized study carried out in a surgical referral center. Screening unsedated colonoscopy with either air or carbon dioxide insufflation was performed; patients were randomly assigned to air or carbon dioxide group by means of computer-generated randomization lists. All examinations were performed in an ambulatory setting with standard videocolonoscopes. The ...

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy in solitary kidneys: experience with 412 cases from Southern Iran
Fri, 28 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Urolithiasis
This study has aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PCNL in these patients. Between 2002 and 2014, out of 10,800 cases who underwent PCNL in our centres, 412 had a single kidney. We recorded the results and complications in these patients. Out of 412 patients, 279 were men and 133 women. Their mean age was 46.4 years (range 19–71) and mean stone size was 26.5 mm (range 21–55); 161 of them had a functional single kidney, 36 were congenital, and the remaining 215 had undergone contralateral nephrectomy because of stones, trauma, infection or tumour. Comorbidities included 104 hypertensive, 66 diabetic, 65 morbidly obese, 56 uremic and 47 ischemic heart disease cases. The stone-free rate was 91.3 % (376/412) on postoperative X-ray/sonography. However, 42 patients required ancil...

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Psychiatric Research
Publication date: January 2015 Source:Journal of Psychiatric Research, Volume 60 Author(s): Tonita E. Wroolie , Heather A. Kenna , Manpreet K. Singh , Natalie L. Rasgon The current preliminary cross sectional study sought to examine the effects of insulin resistance (IR) and body mass index (BMI) on cognitive performance in adult patients with a history depression, currently not in an acute Major Depressive Episode (MDD). As an exploratory post hoc investigation, special consideration was given to adults <45 years and ≥45 years old. Subjects included men and women ages 19-71 (N = 39) with a history of a non-psychotic, non-melancholic MDD. All subjects underwent an insulin suppression test to determine Steady-State Plasma Glucose (SSPG), a battery of neuropsychological tests, a...
