Advances of peripheral nerve repair techniques to improve hand function: a systematic review of literature. - The open orthopaedics journal
Concepts of neuronal damage and repair date back to ancient times. The research in this topic has been growing ever since and numerous nerve repair techniques have evolved throughout the years. Due to our greater understanding of nerve injuries and repair we now distinguish between central and peripheral nervous system. In this review, we have chosen to concentrate on peripheral nerve injuries and in particular those involving the hand. There are no reviews bringing together and summarizing the latest research evidence concerning the most up-to-date techniques used to improve hand function. Therefore, by identifying and evaluating all the published literature in this field, we have summarized all the available information about the advances in peripheral nerve techniques used to improve hand function. The most important ones are the use of resorbable poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate] (PHB), epineural end-to-end suturing, graft repair, nerve transfer, side to side neurorrhaphy and end to side neurorrhaphy between median, radial and ulnar nerves, nerve transplant, nerve repair, external neurolysis and epineural sutures, adjacent neurotization without nerve suturing, Agee endoscopic operation, tourniquet induced anesthesia, toe transfer and meticulous intrinsic repair, free auto nerve grafting, use of distal based neurocutaneous flaps and tubulization. At the same time we found that the patient's age, tension of repair, time of repair, level of injury and scar formation following surgery affect the prognosis. Despite the thorough findings of this systematic review we suggest that further research in this field is needed.
Impact of selenium on the leukotriene B4 synthesis pathway during isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in experimental rats. - Inflammation
Selenium (Se), an essential micronutrient, exerts its biological functions through selenoproteins. There are evidences that show Se to have an impact on the course and outcome of a number of etiologically inflammatory diseases. Leukotriene B(4) (LTB(4)) is an inflammatory mediator, and its production is mediated through two specific enzymes--lipooxygenase (LOX) and leukotriene A(4) hydrolase (LTA(4)H). We examined the effect of Se on LTB(4) synthesis during isoproterenol (ISP)-induced myocardial infarction (MI) in rats. Rats were divided as: control, ISP, Se, and Se + ISP. Sodium selenite was administered at dose of 8 μg/100 g/day. ISP was injected subcutaneously twice (10 mg/100 g body weight). The rats pretreated with Se had increased concentration of phospholipids and enhanced biosynthetic enzymes compared with that of ISP. The activities of phospholipases decreased on Se treatment. The level of calcium was increased in ISP group whereas, on Se treatment, it was near normal levels. Activities of LOX and expression of LTA(4)H were down-regulated in the case of Se-pretreated rats. Our study shows the anti-inflammatory mechanism of selenium during MI.
Teaching health science students foundation motivational interviewing skills: use of motivational interviewing treatment integrity and self-reflection to approach transformative learning. - BMC medical education
Many undergraduate and graduate-entry health science curricula have incorporated training in motivational interviewing (MI). However, to effectively teach skills that will remain with students after they graduate is challenging. The aims of this study were to find out self-assessed MI skills of health students and whether reflecting on the results can promote transformative learning.Thirty-six Australian occupational therapy and physiotherapy students were taught the principles of MI, asked to conduct a motivational interview, transcribe it, self-rate it using the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) tool and reflect on the experience. Student MI skills were measured using the reported MITI subscores. Student assignments and a focus group discussion were analysed to explore the student experience using the MITI tool and self-reflection to improve their understanding of MI principles.Students found MI challenging, although identified the MITI tool as useful for promoting self-reflection and to isolate MI skills. Students self-assessed their MI skills as competent and higher than scores expected from beginners.The results inform educational programs on how MI skills can be developed for health professional students and can result in transformative learning. Students may over-state their MI skills and strategies to reduce this, including peer review, are discussed. Structured self-reflection, using tools such as the MITI can promote awareness of MI skills and compliment didactic teaching methods.
