BACKGROUND Asymptomatic cardiac involvement in systemic sclerosis (SSc) has been reported. Long-term follow-up might elucidate the clinical implications of these abnormalities. The aim was to identify the clinical outcomes of asymptomatic cardiac involvement in SSc patients after 2 years of follow-up. METHODS A cohort study was done at Khon Kaen University, Thailand, on adult patients with SSc who completed the preliminary study. Repeated investigations included electrocardiography, chest radiog...

Health tourism has hundreds of years of history, most notably in visitors traveling to thermal baths. Medical tourism, a type of health tourism, has rapidly expanded in the last quarter century by patients travelling abroad to health centers for medical treatment. Because of lack of records in ancient times, the history of tourism for actual medical treatment is unknown. In Ottoman archives, medical treatment consent forms of patients were officially documented. We analyzed these existing record...

A 77-year-old woman presented with a 2-year history of denture sores at the left mandibular gingiva. She had no smoking history or alcohol use. Intraoral examination showed a cauliflower-like, 28 × 20 mm mass on the left mandibular gingiva without induration. The edentulous ridge was extensively resorbed. Extraoral examination showed no numbness of lower lip and cervical lymphadenopathy. Computed tomography (CT) showed superficial cortical bone erosion beneath the mass and proximity to the infer...

BACKGROUND Irisin and betatrophin are involved in insulin resistance. We investigated the effects of aerobic and resistance exercise (AE/RE) and de-training (cessation of the training after the AE/RE) on betatrophin, irisin and some metabolic factors in rats. METHODS Wistar rats were assigned into six groups: non-diabetic rats (C), non-diabetic rats that performed AE/RE, diabetic rats (Dia), and diabetic rats that performed AE/RE (Dia+AE and Dia+RE). Diabetes was induced by high-fat diet/strepto...

BACKGROUND Patients who have suffered an acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and are smokers may have a better outcome following thrombolytic therapy when compared with non-smokers. While this finding is controversial, data on baseline clinical risk factors to predict treatment efficacy of thrombolytic therapy using ambulatory status in patients who suffered AIS and are smokers is not common. METHODS Between 2010 and 2016, retrospective data on patients who have suffered an AIS and received recombinant ...

Human laterality disorders comprise a group of diseases characterized by abnormal location (situs) and orientation of thoraco-abdominal organs and vessels across the left-right axis. Situs inversus totalis is mirror image reversal of thoraco-abdominal organs/great vessels. Situs ambiguus, better known as heterotaxy, is abnormal arrangement of thoraco-abdominal organs across the left-right axis excluding situs inversus totalis. Heterotaxy, also referred to as atrial or atrial appendage isomerism,...
Exposure to cadmium and lead is widespread, and is related to environmental contamination, occupational sources, food, tobacco and other consumer products. Lower socioeconomic status increases the risk of heavy metal exposure and the diseases associated with cadmium and lead toxicity. Concurrent toxicity with both cadmium and lead is likely but has not often been assessed. There is now substantial evidence linking cadmium and lead to many diseases including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesi...
