          "Spider-Man" - Sting Of The 'Scorpion'   


Actor Michael Mando aka 'Nacho' in "Better Call Saul" is "over the moon to be playing my favorite super-villain 'The Scorpion'" in "Spider-Man: Homecoming", based on the Marvel Comics character:



'Mac Gargan' aka 'Scorpion' was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, first appearing in Marvel's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #19 (1964), followed by "Amazing Spider-Man" #20 (July, 1964).


Gargan was a private investigator who was hired by newspaper publisher 'J. Jonah Jameson' to find out how 'Peter Parker' was able to obtain photos of 'Spider-Man'. When Spider-Man evaded Gargan, J. Jonah Jameson decided to use Gargan as a test subject for an experiment done by 'Farley Stillwell'.


Gargan was given superhuman powers through chemical/radiological treatments, which produced 'mutagenic' effects.


He has superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, stamina and the ability to scale walls. He also has an exceptionally strong grip, reminiscent of a real scorpion's pincers. 


Gargan wears a full-body battlesuit composed of two layers of light steel mesh separated by a thin layer of insulated rubber. In addition to his superhuman physique, he was traditionally armed with a cybernetically-controlled, seven-foot mechanical tail, with a tool steel articulated framework which can whip at 90 miles per hour. 


The tail has been equipped with projectile weapons, including a spike at its tip, which can squirt an acidic spray. The tail can also be used as an extra leg, or he can coil it behind him to spring himself a distance of at least 30 feet.

VENT'ANNI DOPO
 
Chi e come scoprì l’aumento del fondo radioattivo a Novozybkov vent’anni fa? Lo racconta Sergej Sizov, insegnante del college pedagogico.

Andò così. Il 28 aprile doveva tenersi la prova generale dei reparti dei giovani militari per la festa del 1° maggio. All’improvviso soffiò un forte vento da sud-ovest, il cielo si coprì di nubi minacciose, si mise a piovere a dirotto. Le prove le si dovettero rimandare. Alle 21.00, guardando alla televisione il programma Vremja, venni a sapere dell’incidente alla centrale nucleare di Cernobyl. Anche se in quel notiziario comunicarono che il livello delle radiazioni non superava la norma.

Per ironia della sorte il 29 aprile, durante la lezione di Addestramento militare di base, stavo giusto spiegando agli studenti come si utilizzassero gli strumenti per le ricognizioni radiochimiche. Lasciatogli tre dosimetri per la lezione di pratica, me ne uscii dall’aula, e quando tornai vidi le facce sconcertate degli studenti: tutti gli apparecchi indicavano un altissimo livello di radioattività.

Decidemmo allora di svolgere una lezione di pratica all’aperto. Nel cortile dell’istituto pedagogico i ragazzi effettuarono delle rilevazioni. I risultati erano impressionanti: sopra l’erba – 11 ml/roentgen all’ora, quasi mille volte più della norma, e nelle pozzanghere dopo la pioggia 45-60 ml/roentgen all’ora. Riferii dei risultati dell’indagine radiologica del territorio al direttore dell’istituto L.V. Vykočko, enunciandogli le mie supposizioni riguardo all’incidente alla centrale nucleare, misi al corrente A. Lozin, capo del settore propaganda e agitazione del comitato cittadino del PCUS, telefonai a I.P. Bondjuk, capo della Difesa civile cittadina.

Bondjuk non ci credette: «Stai scherzando! Non può essere. Ieri (lunedì 28 aprile) ci hanno convocati tutti in regione, i capi dei reparti di Difesa civile cittadini e provinciali, ma non ci hanno detto neanche una parola dell’incidente».

Bondjuk esigette che gli portassi gli apparecchi nel suo ufficio. Quando il direttore della Difesa civile ebbe constatato personalmente i valori dei dosimetri, mi venne ordinato di allestire nel territorio dell’istituto pedagogico una postazione di controllo chimico-radiologico e di riferire personalmente ogni ora al direttore della Difesa civile cittadina riguardo al livello delle radiazioni; poi giunse l’ordine di mandare dei dosimetristi in diversi punti della città a effettuare delle rilevazioni.

Il compito fu portato a termine in due ore. Sei allievi del club “Patriot”, lavorando a coppie (un logista e un dosimetrista), dopo 40 minuti presentarono un quadro completo della situazione: dove e quali livelli di contaminazione c’erano in città. La reazione di I.P. Bondjuk: «E perché tace lo stato maggiore regionale?».

«Chiami lei personalmente e dica loro quello di cui siamo in possesso» – gli proposi io.
Bondjuk mi fece subito notare: «Non ci crederanno, diranno che voglio diffondere il panico. Tieni la situazione sotto controllo. Se il livello aumenterà, allora inizieremo a fare casino».
Uscendo dall’ufficio di Bondjuk passai da Viktor Mel’nikov, allo stato maggiore provinciale della Difesa civile, e m’interessai della radioattività nel territorio della provincia. «Nessuna» – rispose Viktor. «Perché, cos’è successo?».

Tirai fuori l’apparecchio dosimetrico. Il livello di radiazioni nell’ufficio del direttore era di 1,2 ml/roentgen all’ora. Mel’nikov rimase di stucco: «Hai dello stronzio in tasca!». Quando Viktor comprese che non si trattava di uno scherzo, fu preso dal panico: «In questi giorni sono in corso i lavori di semina, con tutta la polvere che ci sarà nei campi, bisogna fare qualcosa con urgenza!».

All’istituto pedagogico riunirono di fretta e furia tutti i capigruppo, raccontarono dell’incidente che era avvenuto e diedero loro delle raccomandazioni: ermetizzare le finestre, non portare in locali e aule le scarpe usate all’esterno, non andare in giro per strada senza necessità. Nel cortile dell’istituto, nei punti del terreno più contaminati, vennero messi i cartelli “Contaminato” con l’indicazione del livello di radioattività.

Le giornate però erano belle, calde, gli studenti non si riusciva a tenerli, la maggior parte di loro non prendeva tanto sul serio le raccomandazioni. Allora non sapevamo ancora quanto iodio si dovesse prendere, tuttavia la sera nel pensionato raccomandarono a tutti di berne due-tre gocce in un bicchier d’acqua. Erano ben pochi a Novozybkov quelli che potevano spiegare con esattezza la differenza tra la contaminazione e l’inquinamento. In seguito lessi sulla Grande enciclopedia che, venendosi a trovare in un territorio contaminato da sedimenti di radionuclidi con un livello di 20 ml/roentgen all’ora, si possono subire dei processi irreversibili agli organi ematopoietici con conseguenti leucemie.

Il 29 aprile dopo pranzo in città passò il primo segretario regionale del PCUS Vojstročenko, di ritorno dalla consegna della Bandiera rossa itinerante a una delle aziende agricole delle provincia di Novozybkov per aver portato a termine in anticipo la semina. Per l’occasione al Comitato cittadino si tenne un banchetto d’accoglienza a cui presenziò anche I.P. Bondjuk, il quale, tra una cosa e l’altra, riuscì a parlare dell’anormale situazione radioattiva in città. Venne fuori che Vojstročenko non ne sapeva niente e se ne ripartì tutto sconvolto e indignato per Brjansk. A tarda sera di quello stesso giorno venni chiamato allo stato maggiore cittadino della Difesa civile. Bondjuk mi accolse dicendo: «Ecco, finalmente si sono dati una mossa. Siediti al telefono. Tu hai scoperto questa roba, tu ora rispondi alle chiamate, che ci stanno tartassando di domande!». E realmente la gente telefonava da Klincy, Počep, Mglin… Tutti chiedevano con quali apparecchi avessimo fatto le rilevazioni, dove avessimo preso le fonti d’alimentazione. E l’addetto responsabile dello stato maggiore della Difesa civile regionale si mise perfino a farmi un esame telefonico sul fatto se sapessi o meno usare un dosimetro.

All’incirca dopo un’ora, I.P. Bondjuk convocò a raccolta i capi dei servizi della Difesa civile. Il primo ad arrivare fu I.S. Kaplun, poi gli altri. Tutti chiedevano all’unisono: «Dove possiamo trovare l’alimentazione per gli apparecchi dosimetrici?». Perché, a quanto risultava, nei negozi non c’erano le batterie adatte. Allora, come si dice, “La necessità aguzza l’ingegno”, e io proposi di adattare delle comuni batterie per apparecchi portatili e in qualche modo le collegai ai dosimetri di alcune aziende.

Di notte io e Kaplun girammo in automobile tutta la città, misurammo le sabbiere negli asili, i territori intorno al panificio e al burrificio ecc. La sabbia accanto all’asilo n. 5 “brillava” – 15 ml/roentgen all’ora. Dissi al medico del servizio sanitario: «Non si deve fare uscire i bambini a giocare in cortile, date quest’ordine».

Iosif Semënovič diede la disposizione che i bambini non uscissero a giocare in cortile, sebbene non fosse convinto che al Comitato regionale del partito avrebbero approvato il fatto che lui da solo avesse preso tale decisione.

Nei primi giorni di maggio passai al Reparto cittadino per la salute, dal suo capo N.K. Starodubcev, e m’interessai: «Perché non vengono date disposizioni per la iodioterapia, perché agli abitanti non vengono distribuite confezioni individuali con iodato di potassio?». Al che Nikolaj Kuprijanovič rispose: «Con mio sommo rammarico, io non posso dare tale disposizione. Per una iodioterapia generale della popolazione serve un’ordinanza del ministro della Sanità dell’URSS».

In tutto il paese impazzavano con allegria le feste del 1° maggio. La piccola cittadina di Novozybkov era così lontana dal ministero della Sanità. E le decisioni d’importanza vitale per il popolo vengono prese nei ministeri solamente nei giorni feriali.

La tanto attesa ordinanza giunse nella nostra città soltanto dopo due settimane, quando lo iodio radioattivo aveva già completato la sua perniciosa azione (il periodo di dimezzamento dello iodio radioattivo è di otto giorni…).

Background: The discovery of a second uranium enrichment facility in Qum, Iran prompted the government of Saudi Arabia to open its air spacefor potential Israeli air attacks on a growing number of nuclear infrastructure targets in Iran.

Ironically, "atoms for peace" have often led to wars. In 1980, Iran attacked Iraq's partially-built Osirak reactor, but French engineers repaired the light damage quickly. The very next year, Israel bombed Osirak before it could be loaded with fuel. These attacks set the precedent for future conventional military pre-emptive strikes against commercial or research atomic facilities, as a non-proliferation tactic. In 1984, Iraq initiated several years ofattacks against Iran's partially-built Bushehr reactor complex, inflicting severe damage on the facility. The following year, Bennett Ramberg publishedNuclear Power Plants as Weapons for the Enemy: An Unrecognized Military Peril. In 1991, during the Persian Gulf War, the U.S. bombed Iraqi research reactors at Tuwaitha, possibly causing radiological releases. In 2007, Israel bombed an atomic reactor being secretly constructed by North Koreans in Syria. Last year, Ramberg warned about the radiological consequences should the Dimona reactor, at the heart of the Israeli nuclear weapons manufacturing complex, be bombed.

The Nuclear Engineering Institute on the French energy legacy:

 

"French nuclear policy is neither green nor sustainable. The decision to separate and use plutonium – which French and UK accounts show at zero book value and negative market value – entails a radiological impact equivalent to all other nuclear activities in Europe combined."

          Determinants of Antibiotic Tailoring in Pediatric Intensive Care: A National Survey.   

Determinants of Antibiotic Tailoring in Pediatric Intensive Care: A National Survey.

Pediatr Crit Care Med. 2017 Jun 28;:

Authors: Fontela PS, Quach C, Karim ME, Willson DF, Gilfoyle E, McNally JD, Gonzales M, Papenburg J, Reynolds S, Lacroix J, Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators (PALISI) Network; on behalf of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: To describe the criteria that currently guide empiric antibiotic treatment in children admitted to Canadian PICUs.
DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey.
SETTING: Canadian PICUs.
SUBJECTS: Pediatric intensivists and pediatric infectious diseases specialists.
INTERVENTIONS: None.
MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: We used focus groups and literature review to design the survey questions and its four clinical scenarios (sepsis, pneumonia, meningitis, and intra-abdominal infections). We analyzed our results using descriptive statistics and multivariate linear regression. Our response rate was 60% for pediatric intensivists (62/103) and 36% for pediatric infectious diseases specialists (37/103). Variables related to patient characteristics, disease severity, pathogens, and clinical, laboratory, and radiologic infection markers were associated with longer courses of antibiotics, with median increment ranging from 1.75 to 7.75 days. The presence of positive viral polymerase chain reaction result was the only variable constantly associated with a reduction in antibiotic use (median decrease from, -3.25 to -8.25 d). Importantly, 67-92% of respondents would still use a full course of antibiotics despite positive viral polymerase chain reaction result and marked clinical improvement for patients with suspected sepsis, pneumonia, and intra-abdominal infection. Clinical experience was associated with shorter courses of antibiotics for meningitis and sepsis (-1.3 d [95% CI, -2.4 to -0.2] and -1.8 d [95% CI, -2.8 to -0.7] per 10 extra years of clinical experience, respectively). Finally, site and specialty also influenced antibiotic practices.
CONCLUSIONS: Decisions about antibiotic management for PICU patients are complex and involve the assessment of several different variables. With the exception of a positive viral polymerase chain reaction, our findings suggest that physicians rarely consider reducing the duration of antibiotics despite clinical improvement. In contrast, they will prolong the duration when faced with a nonreassuring characteristic. The development of objective and evidence-based criteria to guide antibiotic therapy in critically ill children is crucial to ensure the rational use of these agents in PICUs.

          A New Optical System Can Detect Cancer in Real Time With High Accuracy During Surgery   

​​PHILADELPHIA — An intraoperative, multimodal optical cancer detection system detected cancer with high degrees of accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity in real time during surgery in a validation study among patients with brain tumors, according to results published in Cancer Research, a journal of the Americ​an Association for Cancer Research.

“With brain cancer, near-perfect detection is important so that we can remove as much cancer as possible, without removing healthy tissue,” said Kevin Petrecca, MD, PhD, a neurosurgeon at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, and associate professor of neurology and neurosurgery at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. “Residual cancer post-surgery is associated with decreased time to recurrence and lower survival.” Kevin Petrecca, MD, PhD

“Raman spectroscopy (RS) alone can achieve 90 percent detection accuracy, but by combining RS with intrinsic fluorescence spectroscopy (IFS) and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DFS), we are excited that our results showed 97 percent accuracy, 100 percent sensitivity, and 93 percent specificity,” said Frédéric Leblond, PhD, director of the Laboratory for Radiological Optics, associate professor in the Department of Engineering Physics at Polytechnique Montreal and a researcher at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre, who developed the tool together with Petrecca. Frédéric Leblond, PhD

Petrecca explained that the optical detection system consisted of a handheld probe coupled with an analytics platform on a mobile cart. He noted that the probe contains miniaturized RS, IFS, and DFS technology, and has a tip the same size surgeons use to remove brain cancers. “The probe can scan a 500 micron-diameter area of tissue, and since a cell is roughly 10 microns across, the tool is able to detect down to small numbers of cancer cells,” said Petrecca. Leblond developed the platform’s machine-learning algorithm using archived tissue samples of brain cancer and normal cells from brain surgeries classified by standard pathology.

In the validation study, Petrecca, Leblond, and colleagues investigated the use of the optical system among 15 patients with grade II-IV gliomas and metastatic brain cancers (from primary lung or colon cancer or melanoma), who were undergoing open cranium surgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital. They interrogated 10 to15 sites in each patient, 161 sites in total, taking optical readings of normal and tumor tissue regions at each site for blinded post-analysis to determine if cancer cells were present, and compared the data to corresponding spectral data.

Image analysis demonstrated improvements, measured as area under the curve, by as much as five percent from 95 percent for RS alone compared to up to 100 percent for RS combined with IFS and DFS, approaching the threshold for complete resection. Further, the optical system detected cancer with virtually the same degree of accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity among all cancer types investigated.

“Our findings are novel since optical techniques are not standard in any surgeries at present,” said Petrecca. “The results also indicate a strong potential for this technology to be adapted to a wide range of surgical and detection applications, including laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, and colonoscopy.”

The study was supported by funds from the New Researchers program from the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies (FRQNT), the Discovery Grant program from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Collaborative Health Research Program by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and NSERC. Petrecca serves as chief medical officer and Leblond serves as chief technical officer at ODS Medical Inc., a diagnostic medical device company they founded in 2015.

          Many Childhood Cancer Survivors Carry Mutations in Cancer Predisposition Genes, Raising Risk of Later Disease    

WASHINGTON — Whole-genome sequencing conducted on a large cohort of childhood cancer survivors indicated that many survivors harbor mutations in cancer predisposition genes, significantly increasing their risk of developing a subsequent neoplasm (SN) later in life, according to data presented here at the AACR Annual Meeting 2017, April 1-5.

“The remarkable advances realized over the past four decades in the treatment and survival of pediatric cancer patients is one of the most notable success stories within the cancer field,” said the study’s co-senior author, Les Robison, PhD, chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Cancer Control at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. “However, childhood cancer survivors are at increased risk of subsequent neoplasms, largely considered to be therapy-related.” Les Robison, PhD

Today, Robison explained, many forms of childhood cancer have cure rates of more than 80 percent. As a result, there are now more than 400,000 long-term survivors of childhood cancer in the United States.

In order to explore the role of genetics in these survivors’ increased risk of SNs, the research team led by Dr. Jinghui Zhang, chair of the Department of Computational Biology at St. Jude, analyzed the results of whole genome and exome sequencing that were performed on 3,007 participants of the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort who had survived childhood cancer for five years or longer. Survivors underwent a comprehensive clinical assessment, treatment exposures were extracted from medical records, and SNs were pathologically or radiologically confirmed.

The researchers identified 1,117 SNs in 434 survivors. Of these survivors, 93 had been diagnosed with two or more histologically distinct SNs. Overall, 25.5 percent of the survivors developed a SN by age 45, most commonly non-melanoma skin cancer, meningioma, thyroid, and breast cancer.

The results showed that 12 percent of the survivors had a pathogenic or likely pathogenic mutation in one of 156 genes associated with an increased risk of cancer. The most common mutations were in the genes of RB1, NF1, BRCA2, BRCA1, and TP53.

Among the survivors who had never received radiotherapy, those who carried a pathogenic or likely pathogenic mutation were six times more likely to develop an SN than those who did not carry such mutations. The chance of developing two or more SNs increased 24-fold for the survivors carrying mutations.

Among the survivors who were exposed to radiotherapy, those who carried a pathogenic or likely pathogenic mutation had a two-fold increased risk for developing two or more SNs compared with those who did not carry a mutation.

Robison emphasized that various factors contribute to the increased risk and to the types of SNs experienced by childhood cancer survivors. For example, he said, radiation exposure increases the risk of subsequent neoplasms such as meningioma, non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, and sarcomas. The study results now demonstrate that genetics independently add to the risk for breast cancer, thyroid cancer, and sarcomas, he added.

“Our findings have immediate implications for the growing population of long-term survivors of childhood cancer,” Robison said. First of all, he said, “We are recommending that survivors of childhood cancer who develop specific types of subsequent neoplasms receive genetic counseling. 

“In addition, we believe that these findings will contribute to future decisions relating to recommendations for personalized therapeutic approaches based on genetic profiles for children who are newly diagnosed with cancer,” Robison said.

Zhaoming Wang, PhD, co-lead author, said that future research will be necessary to continue to follow the St. Jude survivors, to replicate this study’s findings in other populations of childhood cancer survivors, and to understand possible links between genetic factors and cancer treatment exposures. For survivors, this research could help guide their decisions on family planning and on cancer prevention strategies, such as regular screening. Zhaoming Wang, PhD

Robison said a limitation of the study is that it was based on the ability to follow up with survivors. Some former patients may have died, either from a subsequent neoplasm or another chronic health condition related to their cancer therapy. Therefore, he said, the study estimates should be considered a conservative estimate of the prevalence of mutations.

Wang and Carmen Wilson, PhD, of the Department of Epidemiology and Cancer Control at St. Jude, were the co-lead authors of this study. Zhang and Robison were co-senior authors.

This study was funded by the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC) and by the National Cancer Institute. The authors declare no conflicts of interest.

          Visite ed esami ad Oriocenter Sbarca la «Smart Clinic»   
Il Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato e Oriocenter presentano «Smart Clinic». Visite ed esami senza attesa e a prezzi smart, una sala chirurgica per chirurgia ambulatoriale e un Centro di chirurgia refrattiva nel più grande centro commerciale d’Italia.

Dopo il successo di Corpore Sano Smart Clinic – innovativa struttura sanitaria nata tre anni fa dall’intuizione del Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato (18 ospedali, 17 in Lombardia, tra i quali l’IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele) all’interno del Centro Commerciale “Le Due Torri” di Stezzano – il Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato raddoppia con l’apertura della seconda Smart Clinic in un centro commerciale. Questa volta a Oriocenter, il centro commerciale più grande d’Italia, di fronte all’aeroporto internazionale “Il Caravaggio” di Orio al Serio.

Invariato il concept, che si è rivelato vincente, ovvero mettere il know how del primo gruppo ospedaliero italiano alla portata di tutti, offrendo un servizio di qualità ospedaliera che sappia adattarsi alle esigenze di salute, benessere e cura dei cittadini in modo flessibile, facilmente accessibile, pratico, in una parola “smart”. «Il Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato è stato il primo a proporre una sanità “smart”, sia nell’accesso, sia nel costo delle prestazioni che offriamo. La sanità del futuro si deve basare su un grande cambiamento culturale: mettere il paziente al centro, che per noi significa cure e tecnologie all’avanguardia, specialisti di livello, anche fuori dalle mura dell’ospedale, per venire incontro alle esigenze della vita quotidiana sempre più affannata” afferma il dottor Paolo Rotelli, Presidente del Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato.

«Sono molto soddisfatto che un Gruppo così importante nel panorama sanitario abbia scelto questa nuova estensione dell’Oriocenter come location per aprire una struttura medica così all’avanguardia, in grado di offrire anche ai visitatori di un centro commerciale servizi a tutela della salute di altissimo livello, a prezzi accessibili, in tempi rapidi e ai quali generalmente si ha accesso solo negli ospedali” commenta Antonio Percassi, Presidente di Finser e Percassi. “La Smart Clinic contribuisce ad apportare un nuovo primato di qualità ai servizi offerti presso questa nuova parte di Oriocenter, andando ad aggiungersi alle altre eccellenze presenti nelle altre categorie merceologiche. Per me che ho contribuito alla nascita di questo centro non può che essere motivo di orgoglio essere riusciti ad attrarre qui un leader di settore come il Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato. L’offerta di servizi per la salvaguardia della salute non fa che aumentare il valore di questo centro».

Quasi tre milioni di euro l’investimento complessivo, considerando sia la realizzazione delle strutture sia il valore delle apparecchiature elettromedicali installate. Quasi mille metri di superficie, 19 ambulatori con alte tecnologie, un’area dedicata alla diagnostica per immagini - con la possibilità di scaricare referti di laboratorio e radiologici direttamente on line -, una palestra per la fisioterapia e box per le terapie fisiche. Assoluta novità per una struttura medica all’interno di un centro commerciale, in Smart Clinic Oriocenter ci sarà anche un blocco chirurgico per attività operatoria ambulatoriale e un Centro laser per la chirurgia refrattiva, legato al programma www.buttagliocchiali.it.

«In questa nuova Smart Clinic, abbiamo voluto innovare ulteriormente la nostra offerta di diagnosi e cura, inserendo per la prima volta in un centro commerciale prestazioni come la chirurgia ambulatoriale e la chirurgia refrattiva, tradizionalmente disponibili solo negli ospedali» sottolinea il dottor Francesco Galli, amministratore delegato degli Istituti Ospedalieri Bergamaschi. «Questo sforzo, sia economico sia organizzativo, nasce dalla volontà, in linea con il concept da cui sono nate le Smart Clinic, di rendere sempre più accessibile la sanità al cittadino. Non solo visite, ma anche esami diagnostici e prestazioni di alta specialità. L’offerta infatti si articola in quattro aree: Salute e Benessere, Movimento ed equilibrio, Bellezza e Benessere e per finire Bambini ed Adolescenti. In altre parole una sanità accessibile, con standard di qualità ospedaliera, a 360 gradi, aperta a tutti i cittadini, anche ai viaggiatori dall’estero, in virtù della collocazione strategica rispetto all’aeroporto».

La sala chirurgica è realizzata con i più alti standard di sicurezza e sterilità richiesti da Regione Lombardia, mentre il Centro di chirurgia refrattiva è dotato della piattaforma più completa e innovativa oggi disponibile per questo tipo di interventi, composta da ben due nuovi laser, un eccimeri e un femtolaser con tecnica SMILE, una dotazione tecnologica di primissimo livello frutto della partnership con ZEISS, azienda leader a livello mondiale nel settore delle apparecchiature oftalmologiche. Grazie a questa piattaforma sarà possibile correggere difetti di visione con la nuovissima tecnica mini-invasiva “SMILE” che garantisce risultati ottimali con tempi di recupero immediati per il paziente. “Siamo orgogliosi di essere stati scelti dal Gruppo San Donato per questo progetto come partner per la chirurgia refrattiva. Ne apprezziamo la visione e l’innovatività nei servizi al paziente e, non ultimo, anche la qualità dal momento che il Gruppo San Donato si è dotato della piattaforma ZEISS per la chirurgia refrattiva, la quale è l’unica oggi sul mercato ad avvalersi della rivoluzionaria tecnica ReLEx® SMILE, realizzata tramite l’utilizzo di laser ZEISS a femtosecondi di ultimissima generazione” sottolinea Desirée Pavan, Head of Medical Technology di Carl Zeiss Italia.

Altra partnership importante è quella con Samsung, che ha reso possibile un percorso di videowall e video che accoglie e accompagna il paziente durante tutta la sua permanenza nella clinica. Sono disponibili anche tre piattaforme ecografiche di ultimissima generazione, caratterizzate da un’estrema qualità delle immagini e innovativi tools per l’utilizzo in ambito ostetrico-ginecologico e radiologico, nonché una apparecchiatura RX totalmente digitale a basso dosaggio. «Siamo molto orgogliosi di questa importante collaborazione poiché testimonia ulteriormente la nostra volontà di essere un partner per la salute dei cittadini. Si tratta, inoltre, di un esempio concreto di come sia già possibile sostenere l’evoluzione della sanità verso il digitale», ha affermato Dario Guido, Head of Health & Medical Equipment di Samsung Electronics Italia. «L’essere stati scelti per un progetto dal forte impatto sociale conferma il valore aggiunto delle nostre tecnologie ed evidenzia l’importanza per le strutture sanitarie di dotarsi di strumenti di diagnostica efficaci ed evoluti, che consentono da un lato di rafforzare il rapporto umano tra medico e paziente, e dall’altro di offrire prestazioni di alto livello in strutture di ogni dimensione».

“Smart Clinic” è “clinic” nella qualità ma “smart” nelle tariffe contenute, nei servizi e nelle modalità di fruizione delle prestazioni, in accesso diretto e/o attraverso prenotazione. “Smart” sono anche gli orari: tutti i giorni, sabato e domenica compresi. A Smart Clinic grandi e piccoli potranno trovare risposte alle loro esigenze di salute e benessere con la garanzia della professionalità dei medici del Gruppo ospedaliero San Donato e le migliori tecnologie oggi disponibili: specialità mediche “tradizionali” (endocrinologia, dermatologia, allergologia, oculistica, ortopedia, neurologia, cardiologia, fisiatria e fisioterapia, ginecologia, pediatria, dietologia, flebologia, gastroenterologia, otorinolaringoiatria e roncopatia, pneumologia e medicina, radiologia, Moc ed ecografia - anche senologica e ginecologica - e centro prelievi), prestazioni di “medical wellness” e il “medical beauty” (dalla medicina estetica all’epilazione, con l’uso di laser di ultima generazione a esclusivo uso medico), psicologia, fino a corsi di rieducazione motoria individuale o di gruppo.

«Siamo particolarmente orgogliosi di dare vita, insieme a Gruppo San Donato, ad una struttura come la Smart Clinic che abbiamo inaugurato oggi: un ulteriore primato per Oriocenter. Dopo l’apertura dell’estensione di 35.000 m2 del mese scorso che ci ha permesso di posizionarci come il primo shopping mall in Italia (e l’inaugurazione dello schermo Imax più grande d’Europa della scorsa settimana), diventiamo oggi il primo centro in Italia in grado di offrire - con la Smart Clinic all’interno del nostro centro - una sala operatoria per piccoli servizi di chirurgia oltre all’ampia gamma di servizi di diagnostica. Un servizio che sottolinea il posizionamento Big e Unique di Oriocenter» aggiunge Giancarlo Bassi, Presidente del Consorzio Operatori di Oriocenter.

La qualità e l’attenzione al paziente si declinano anche nella particolare cura riservata alla scelta dei colori, alla progettazione degli ambienti interni e alla scelta dei materiali, tutto per offrire la migliore esperienza di accoglienza e comfort ai pazienti. Le maniglie delle porte sono completamente realizzate con un innovativo materiale antibatterico, resistente nel tempo, in grado di limitare la diffusione di germi e batteri; i pavimenti sono invece realizzati con piastrelle di materiali innovativi con finitura speciale “Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™” in grado di svolgere una concreta azione antibatterica e di riduzione dei fattori inquinanti, contribuendo a purificare l’aria e a rendere gli ambienti più puliti, più salubri e più igienici.

Cervical laminectomy of limited width prevents postoperative C5 palsy: a multivariate analysis of 263 muscle-preserving posterior decompression cases.

Eur Spine J. 2017 Jun 28;:

Authors: Nori S, Aoyama R, Ninomiya K, Yamane J, Kitamura K, Ueda S, Shiraishi T

Abstract
PURPOSE: Between 2006 and 2010, we performed wide laminectomy (wide LAM) alone, with decompression performed between the bilateral medial margin of the zygapophyseal joints, or double-door laminoplasty (DL) combined with wide LAM for cervical compressive myelopathy (CCM). From 2010, instead of wide LAM and DL, we began to perform narrow LAM, where the laminectomy width was no more than 2-3 mm wider than the spinal cord width (SW). This study aimed to elucidate the risk factors for C5 palsy by reviewing surgical outcomes.
METHODS: The clinical features and radiological findings of 263 CCM patients with or without C5 palsy were compared. Risk factors for C5 palsy were assessed using logistic regression analysis. The decompression width (DW) was defined as the laminectomy width or the width between the bilateral medial margins of the bony gutters in DL.
RESULTS: Narrow LAM reduced the incidence of C5 palsy from 9.2 to 1.2%. DL was performed more frequently in the C5 palsy group. The difference between the DW and the SW (DW - SW) was significantly greater in the C5 palsy group. Posterior spinal cord shift, aging, and the number of consecutive laminae surgically treated were significantly higher in the C5 palsy group. The diameter of the foramen (DF) at C4/5 was significantly smaller in the C5 palsy patients. The logistic regression analysis revealed that DL, DW - SW, DF, and aging were risk factors for C5 palsy.
CONCLUSIONS: Cervical laminectomy of limited width prevented postoperative C5 palsy without compromising the functional recovery.

How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they live in?
After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
 
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?
Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own. 

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: 

What is in the air you are breathing right now?
What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning. 

We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn.

Parked car idling pollutes and it wrecks outdoor dining, too 
OCRegister
… I could go on whining about meals marred by running engines. But better, let’s review what all this parking lot idling adds up to and why more and more states, counties and cities have anti-idling campaigns or are passing anti-idling laws… In Salt Lake City, Utah, for example, it’s illegal to idle for more than two minutes… But in nearly all of Southern California, you can park and idle your engine for as long as you can text. And for someone sitting in their cozy car, that can be a very long time… CHILDREN IN DANGER - The Environmental Protection Agency is on a campaign to stop vehicles idling at schools. The idea is that hundreds of thousands of parents drop off and pick up children every morning and every afternoon and many of them wait in their cars, engines humming, tailpipes spewing pollutants…

Summertime thoughts on air quality 
Wakeweekly
During these warmer days with more sunlight and lighter breezes, our atmosphere tends to trap pollutants closer to the ground. For sensitive groups such as those with asthma, heart disease, the very young and the elderly, poor air quality is a serious issue. It may surprise you to learn that it’s something we can all help alleviate… It may also surprise you to learn that ground-level ozone is not the only pollutant of concern. While ozone is definitely more prevalent in the summer, the Environmental Protection Agency actually has five other air pollutants they monitor with set standards in mind. These six common air pollutants are known as “criteria air pollutants,” and are ground-level ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, lead, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide…

Don't be 'silent assassins' drivers urged 
The Scotsman
So-called ‘silent killers’, like carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particle matter (PM) are pumped into the air as vehicle emissions, and have been shown to cause diseases like cancer as well as aggravate common conditions such as asthma and COPD. And the East Central Scotland Vehicle Emissions Partnership wants to do something about it. “Air pollution, caused by transportation, accounts for up to 40,000 deaths within the UK each year. “That’s more than 10 times the annual number of fatal road traffic accidents,” said a spokesman, Tom Burr, for the group…

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn.

          Variations of Surveillance Practice for Patients with Bone Sarcoma: A Survey of Australian Sarcoma Clinicians   
Introduction. After treatment, bone sarcoma patients carry a high chance of relapse and late effects from multimodal therapy. We hypothesize that significant variation in surveillance practice exists between pediatric medical oncology (PO) and nonpediatric medical oncology (NP) sarcoma disciplines. Methods. Australian sarcoma clinicians were approached to do a web based survey that assessed radiologic surveillance (RS) strategies, late toxicity assessment, and posttreatment psychosocial interventions. Results. In total, 51 clinicians responded. No differences were identified in local disease RS. In metastatic disease response assessment, 100% of POs (23/23) and 93% of NPs (24/26) conducted CT chest. However, this was more likely to occur for NPs in the context of a CT chest/abdomen/pelvis (NP: 10/26; PO: 1/23; ). POs were more likely to use CXR for RS (). POs showed more prescriptive intensity in assessment of heart function (), hearing (), and fertility (). POs were more likely to deliver written information for health maintenance/treatment summary (). The majority of respondents described enquiring about psychosocial aspects of health (/37, 89%), but a routine formal psychosocial screen was only used by 23% (/26). Conclusion. There is high variability in bone sarcoma surveillance between PO and NP clinicians. Efforts to harmonize approaches would allow early and late effects recognition/intervention and facilitate improved patient care/transition and research.

Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they live in?
After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
 
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?
Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own. 

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere. 

The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm
Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms 
UL 2034

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: 

What is in the air you are breathing right now?
What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning. 

We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

When Cleaner Air Is Just a Fluke
CityLab
Madrid’s terrible air quality has long been a kind of sick joke. Located on a high plateau where atmospheric conditions routinely trap dirty air close to ground level in winter, the Spanish capital’s cap of daily smog is such a fixture that it even has its own quasi-affectionate nickname: La Boina, or “the beret.” To the city’s credit, it has been pushing hard in recent years to cut car-use as a way of clearing the atmosphere. And this week, some good news finally arrived…

          Georgia Hospital System Partners With Royal Philips   
Transcript DAVID GREENE, HOST: Companies that make medical equipment operate largely on a supply-and-demand model. Hospitals buy their multimillion- dollar machines, use them for a few years, and then go shopping again. In some cases, manufacturers have designed entire medical systems within a hospital. Now, in what appears to be a first-of-its-kind partnership in the United States, a tech giant - Royal Philips - and a hospital system in Georgia are sharing financial risk and reward. Jim Burress reports from WABE in Atlanta. JIM BURRESS, BYLINE: Doctors just finished a heart procedure on a child, here in a radiology lab at Georgia Regents Medical Center in Augusta. Radiologic tech Scott Stevens is among a half-dozen folks prepping the room for the next patient. SCOTT STEVENS: They've probably had an aneurism, in the past.

In a retrospective imaging study, those who lost more weight had a greater reduction in the rate of cartilage layer damage as measured by T2 on MRI, Alexandra Gersing, MD, of the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), and colleagues reported at the Radiological Society of North America meeting. “Substantial weight loss not only slows knee joint degeneration, it also reduces the risk of developing osteoarthritis,” Gersing said. “The studies show there is a protective aspect of weight loss on knee cartilage. Weight loss may slow or prevent osteoarthritis.” Gersing and colleagues assessed 506 patients who were enrolled in the Osteoarthritis Initiative. The mean age was 62, 60% were women, and the average body mass index was 30.2 kg/m2.

          Op-Ed: Staffing, State Funding Cuts Put PA Water Quality At Risk   
By Patrick McDonnell, Secretary, Department of Environmental Protection

I know I don’t need to remind Pennsylvanians how important water is to our quality of life.
What you might not have considered, though, is who is responsible for protecting your water to assure that it’s safe to drink, and further, how that responsibility is directly related to our state budget.
Since 1985, federal authorities have entrusted Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) with implementing the requirements of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, with the expectation that the commonwealth would maintain standards at least as stringent as those of the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
In those more than 30 years, Pennsylvania has proven it is up to the challenge of protecting the public water supplies. And the universe of that protection has grown — DEP now regulates for 93 separate microbiological, chemical, and radiological contaminants in drinking water.
We’ve helped our public water systems grow with the times as well, providing technical, managerial, and financial assistance to ensure they are sustainable and protect public health.
Today, Pennsylvania is ranked third in the nation for the number of public water systems, with more than 8,500 supplying safe and potable water to 10.7 million customers. More than 83 percent of all Pennsylvanians rely on those public water supplies.
We are proud of the overall performance of those systems, staffed with professionals who care deeply about the product they provide 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We know what those operators are doing because DEP field sanitarians inspect these plants, review their monitoring data, and manage compliance and enforcement determinations. The plant operators in Pennsylvania generally do their best to provide safe drinking water.
In the last decade, though, the quality of public drinking water in Pennsylvania has been placed at increasing risk because adequate oversight has been made increasingly more difficult by annual decreases in DEP’s budget.
This past December, I received a letter from the EPA leadership that I wish I had not received, but that every Pennsylvania resident should read. The director of EPA’s Regional Water Protection Division used words like “not sustainable,” “performance will continue to suffer,” and “failed to meet the federal requirement.”
To some degree, we couldn’t argue. EPA granted us primacy based on minimum expectations that are clear. As EPA noted, we aren’t meeting them.
“For the last six years, the number of sanitary survey inspections completed by DEP has significantly declined,” EPA noted.
That’s accurate. Our staffing levels have decreased as cuts to our annual budget have climbed. In 2009-10, the sanitarians DEP had on staff completed almost 3,200 inspections. In 2015-16, that number fell to 1,847 (where 91 percent of the systems met the standard).
EPA knew why the drop-off on inspections was so steep: DEP just doesn’t have the manpower.
That’s how we got to a letter that does the painful math. The national average for public water systems per sanitarian inspector is 67; DEP’s average is 149.
EPA considers this unacceptable, and frankly, so do I.
Water quality must never be political. But, then, budgets aren’t just a matter of financial equations.
Underfunding DEP began more than a decade ago. Now in 2017, DEP staffing overall is 64 percent of what is was in 2007.
Of 750 positions cut, 457 positions inspected regulated facilities and reviewed permits for new facilities or amendments to existing ones — work that protects our public health and environment while keeping our economy moving.
And it should be expected that permit applications and inspection workload demands have increased.
And now, a budget proposed by the state House Republicans would reduce DEP’s current budget by 5.5 percent, which puts water quality, air quality, dam safety, miner safety, and the environment at direct risk.
Gov. Wolf has directed DEP to move forward with a rulemaking proposal to increase permit fees and establish new annual fees to address the funding gap, while at the same time rightly insisting upon continued excellence in our regulatory oversight.
At a time when the governor is looking for resources to protect public health, the House bill would move us in exactly the wrong direction.
While Pennsylvania’s air, land, and water remain generally healthy, we’ve received similar letters of citation from the EPA for understaffing coal-mine inspections, air-quality monitoring, and stormwater management programs.
The EPA has urged us to address our funding challenges and fill personnel shortfalls, and we’re attempting to do just that by proposing new annual fees and increasing existing permit fees for our public water systems.
We believe strongly that the public expects confidence that their drinking water is safe. The only way to provide that is for DEP to have the staff to keep regulatory watch on their behalf.
More with less — that’s been a mantra of government budgeting since time immemorial. But as DEP’s budget declines, so does its ability to achieve the agency’s goals — to “protect Pennsylvania’s air, land, and water from pollution, and to provide for the health and safety of our citizens.”

          A Novel Rat Model of Intramedullary Tibia Fracture Fixation Using Polyetheretherketone Threaded Rod   
imageBackground: The rat fracture fixation models have been widely adopted, but current implant designs suffer from operational difficulty, massive soft-tissue dissection, and radiological intervention. The authors developed a new tibia fracture-healing model using minor invasive intramedullary fixations with polyetheretherketone (PEEK) threaded rods, which have excellent x-ray translucency and no magnetic resonance artifact. Methods: Tibia fractures of 6 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were fixed with intramedullary PEEK threaded rods. X-ray examination was performed at 0, 4, and 8 weeks postoperatively. Histological analysis was conducted via hematoxylin-eosin staining of nondecalcified tissue sections. Results: Radiological fracture healing was observed at 8 weeks postoperatively. Histology demonstrated fracture gap bridging and bone ingrowth adjacent to PEEK. Conclusion: This innovative model is simple and effective, providing a new selection in future biomedical research.
