Abstract : The oral intake of alpha linolenic acid (ALA) has been reported to be effective in preventing vascular disease and improving blood fat status. However, the effects of ALA-rich perilla oil consumption on individuals’ physiological indicators have not been appropriately investigated. This study therefore investigates the effects of the oral intake of perilla oil on physiological indicators. Thirty-eight participants were recruited from Fukutomi-cho, Higashi-hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. The participants each took 5 ml of perilla oil daily for eight months. We calculated the mean values of the physiological index before and after the intake period and applied a paired-sample t-test. The results show that there was no change in body weight, body fat, blood lipid, or blood pressure. However, in addition to changes in the indicators of arteriosclerosis and anemia associated with aging, we observed a significant decrease—approximately 20%—in two kinds of blood oxidation markers and hormones related to bone metabolism. Participants’ scores on the self-evaluated depression scale also decreased significantly. These results suggest that daily intake of perilla oil may be useful in alleviating the effects of aging and depression.

Abstract : Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common disease with a high hospitalization and mortality rate. The choice of appropriate empirical antibiotic treatment is still a matter of debate. The aim of the study was to analyze the prevalence of different antibiotic regimens and their impact on clinical outcome in hospitalized patients with CAP and to assess the impact of the corticosteroids on the in-hospital mortality. 1292 consecutive patients hospitalized at the Clinic of Pneumonology and Phthisiatrics of UMHAT “Saint Marina” – Varna were retrospectively studied for the period 2012 to 2015. The in-hospital mortality was 11.5%. The severity of pneumonia was assessed by CURB-65. The most commonly used therapeutic regimens were: beta-lactam monotherapy (34%), beta-lactam/fluoroquinolone combination (33.1%), and beta-lactam/macrolide combination (23.5%). The combination of beta-lactam/macrolide was associated with the lowest in-hospital mortality rate - 4.8%; OR 0.45 (95% CI 0.25-0.8), p <0.001, lowest rate of treatment failure (15.4%), p<0.001 and shortest hospital stay (7.76 ± 2.82 days). In severe CAP (CURB≥3), this combination showed  significantly lower in-hospital mortality of 33.3%, whereas the mortality on beta-lactam/fluoroquinolone combination  was 50% (p <0.001). The treatment failure was significantly associated with increased in-hospital mortality (16.7% vs. 6.8%, OR 2.76 (95% CI 1.83-4.16), p <0.001. There was no significant difference in mortality rate between patients treated with or without corticosteroids (7.9% vs 8.9%, p> 0.05). The combination of beta-lactam/macrolide was associated with better clinical outcomes. The choice of appropriate  initial antibiotic treatment is crucial for the prognosis.

Abstract : Ultrasound-guided supraclavicular brachial plexus block reduces the probability of major complications occurrence. Adjuvants are added to local anesthetics to improve various block characteristics. Clinical and preclinical data demonstrate the analgesic actions of adenosine. The present study aims to compare the analgesic efficacy and safety of ultrasound guided continuous supraclavicular brachial plexus block using levobupivacaine alone and that of levobupivacaine combined with adenosine for anesthesia and pain control in upper limb cancer surgery. Outcome parameters included success rate, time of onset of the sensory block, motor block, visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain, at 30 min, 2 h, 12 h, 24 h, 36 h, and 48 h postoperatively, time to first rescue analgesia and analgesia related complications. The study included 120 adult ASA I-II patients scheduled for different upper limb cancer surgeries. A bolus dose is 40 ml of 0.25% of levobupivacaine alone in LB group or 40 ml of 0.25% levobupivacaine + 12 mg adenosine in LBA group. We noted significantly shorter time to sensory block in the LBA group. However, no significantly differences were noted between the studied groups regarding motor block score. Also, there were significantly lower VAS values in LBA group throughout the study assessment intervals. Moreover, there was significantly shorter time to rescue anesthesia in LB group. Both groups had equal success rates (98.3 %) with no side effects. In conclusion, adding adenosine to levobupivacaine during ultrasound-guided supraclavicular brachial plexus block has many advantages but it doesn’t affect the analgesic success rate.

Abstract : The state of hemolysis in newborns has a variety of causes. One of them is due to the immunological reactions of the mother's erythrocytes antibodies to the baby's erythrocytes antigens. The hemolysis can occur after the baby born. This condition is called the hemolysis of a newborn with clear clinical or laboratory findings. The following case showed minimal signs that needed further discussion. This following case was a 2-days-old infant with jaundice and anemia confirmed by a physical examination. Laboratory results found a decreased hemoglobin concentration, increased indirect bilirubin, non-reactive CRP, B Rh-positive blood group, negative Coombs test and negative antibody screening result. The peripheral blood smear showed mild anemia. Mother's blood group was O Rh-positive. The doctors programmed a blood transfusion, but the crossmatch results from various blood bags corresponding to the infant's blood group showed positive major incompatibility results. The diagnosis of hemolytic newborns with minimal signs was made. Blood transfusions are not carried out in this case, but monitoring was required to see the hemolytic state of the infant. Administering corticosteroid therapy is recommended as a first step towards this situation. The hemolytic state of newborns needs a complete clinical and laboratory examination to conclude the diagnosis carefully and cautiously.

Abstract : This study aimed to investigate intubation success using the new C-MAC video laryngoscope (VL) in comparison with the traditional flexible fiber-optic laryngoscopy (FFL) in patients with head and neck cancer with an anticipated difficult airway. This prospective study included 72 patients scheduled for major surgery due to cancers involving the head and neck. Routine preoperative assessment was done in addition to the LEMON scoring system to predict difficult intubation. The participants were randomized into two groups; C-MAC Group intubated with a C-Mac VL and Fiberoptic Group intubated with FFL. Hemodynamic variables, intubation time, number of intubation attempts, and attacks of hypoxia during intubation. LEMON score of all patients ranged from 7 to 9, with no significant difference between the two groups (p = 0.463). The intubation success rate was 100% in the Fiberoptic Group from the first attempt in all patients compared to 94.4% in the C-MAC group (p= 0.493). Four patients out of the 34 successful cases in the C-MAC group needed a second attempt of intubation. Intubation time was 32.4±4.9 seconds in the Fiberoptic Group compared to 14.9±3.9 seconds in the C-MAC group (p < 0.001). The hemodynamic characteristics were within the clinically accepted range in the two groups 1 and 5 minutes after intubation. C-MAC video laryngoscopy can be a useful alternative to fiberoptic bronchoscope for the management of difficult intubation in patients with head and neck cancers. It has similar efficacy and safety and shorter intubation time.
