The Combined Effect of Hyperuricemia and Overweight/Obesity on Risk of Hypertension in Adults

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.289
Synopsis: 
The study about the effect of hyperuricemia and overweight/obesity on risk of hypertension shows that the hyperuricemia and overweight/obesity are independent risk factors for hypertension, they increase risk to a much greater extent when present together.

ABSTRACT

Background: While hyperuricemia and overweight/obesity can act alone to increase the prevalence of hypertension, few studies have examined their combined effect. Materials and

The Diagnostic Value of FibroScan in Assessing Significant Liver Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis B

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.150
Pages: 
106–10
Synopsis: 
This study assesses the value of Fibroscan and fibrosis serum models, including aspartate transaminase to platelet ratio index (APRI), in predicting significant liver fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B infection compared with liver biopsy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Significant liver fibrosis is recognized as the key link of therapy and prognosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B infection (CHB). The present study is designed to estimate the benefits of FibroScan (FS) in diagnosing significant fibrosis in patients with CHB.

Closing the Gap between Preclinical Biologic Development and Clinical Application in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.100
Pages: 
312–3
 
The Editor,
Sir,

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease; deferment and relapse of aggressive synovitis finally leads to destruction of joint cartilage and bone, and that is the main hazard of the disease. In recent years, biologic reagents have become a hot spot of RA treatment research, owing to their higher specificity and fewer side effects than existing non-biologic disease-modifying and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Anatomical Features of Posterior Maxillary Teeth for the Positioning of Mini-screws in Beagle Dogs

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.020
Synopsis: 
The study aims to obtain accurate anatomical data on the posterior maxillary teeth in beagle dogs, the present study used solid samples for maxillary bone measurements to identify a suitable implantation point(s) for MSIs, as well as provide a simple and feasible method for establishing MSI animal models.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the anatomical morphology of the posterior maxillary teeth in beagle dogs to provide measurements for the positioning of mini-screw implants in the root furcation area.

Methods: The general conditions of the posterior maxillary teeth from 15 beagle dogs were observed. Afterwards, anatomical measurements of the related root furcation area were conducted using landmarks.

The Significance of Evaluating the Variation of Mechanical Microstructure for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Using Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.238
Pages: 
310–1

The Editor,

Sir,

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic and familial cardiovascular disease which can cause severe arrhythmia and heart failure. With irregular hypertrophy and disorganized arrangement of cardiomyocytes on histological picture, the normal myocardium macrostructure appears in whole or part as ventricular wall thickness, especially ventricular septal thickness (1).

A Study of Patients with “Interface Respiratory Failure” Due to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.028
Pages: 
81–6
Synopsis: 
The definition of interface respiratory failure is scientific and its width is appropriate. We should avoid progression from “interface respiratory failure” to “real respiratory failure”. Interventions should focus on oxygen therapy, bronchodilators, improving respiratory compliance, cytokines and anti-infective agents, respectively.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explain a definition of “interface respiratory failure” as arterial blood gas assay with arterial oxygen partial pressure in the range of 60-75 mmHg.
