Computed tomography showed an obvious mass arising from the lower esophagus. In the esophagogastroduodenoscopy examination, a bulging lesion was observed adjacent to the cardia. Endoscopic ultrasound revealed a 4.5x3.8cm hypoechoic cystic lesion without blood flow signal, which affected most of the muscularis propria...

No effect of tDCS of the primary motor cortex on isometric exercise performance or perceived fatigue
No effect of tDCS of the primary motor cortex on isometric exercise performance or perceived fatigue: AbstractAnodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the primary motor cortex has been reported to improve isometric exercise performance without changing corticospinal excitability. One possible cause for this may be the previous use of relatively high (2 mA) current intensities, which have inconsistent effects on corticospinal excitability. The present pre‐registered study aimed to...

Motor Skill Acquisition during a Balance Task as a Process of Optimization of Motor Primitives
Motor Skill Acquisition during a Balance Task as a Process of Optimization of Motor Primitives: AbstractIt has been argued that the central nervous system relies on combining simple movement elements (i.e. motor primitives) to generate complex motor outputs. However, how movement elements are generated and combined during the acquisition of new motor skills is still a source of debate. Herein, we present results providing new insights into the role of movement elements in the acquisition of motor...

Out-of-School Use of Time and Its Association with Gender Differences in Educational Outcomes
Out-of-School Use of Time and Its Association with Gender Differences in Educational Outcomes: AbstractRecent gender literature has highlighted that boys and girls devote their out-of-school time in dissimilar ways, which may differentially influence their academic achievement. Furthermore, this literature indicates that these gender differences may be rooted in society's gender stereotypes when using this time. To analyse this issue we employ longitudinal and census data for the Spanish region of...

The effect of anatomic variations and maxillary sinus volume in antrochoanal polyp formation
The effect of anatomic variations and maxillary sinus volume in antrochoanal polyp formation: AbstractPurposeThe antrochoanal polyp (ACP), otherwise known as the Killain polyp, is a benign lesion that originates from maxillary sinus mucosa, extending from the accessory ostium towards the middle meatus, and later tends to protrude posteriorly towards the choana and nasopharynx. Many studies have emphasized that its etiopathogenesis is unclear. Research suggests that chronic sinusitis and allergic...

Oxytocin receptor gene loss influences expression of the oxytocin gene in C57BL/6j mice in a sex‐ and age‐dependent manner
Oxytocin receptor gene loss influences expression of the oxytocin gene in C57BL/6j mice in a sex‐ and age‐dependent manner: AbstractParental care and sensory stimulation are critical environmental factors that influence oxytocin (OXT) and its receptor (OXTR). Because developmental Oxt mRNA expression is enhanced by sensory‐rich early life experience, and reduced by sensory deprivation, we predicted that compared to wild‐type (WT) littermates, mice with congenital loss of OXTR (OXTR KO), as a genetically‐induced...

Anxiety and food allergy: AbstractBackgroundFood allergy (FA) is recognized as a growing public health burden affecting 5 to 10% of children worldwide. Several unique features specific to FA elicit high levels of emotional distress and anxiety in patients and caregivers, the first among all the possibility of a life‐threatening reaction. Anxiety disorders are highly prevalent in patients with chronic disease, but remain undertreated despite significant negative consequences on patient health.ObjectiveThis...

Maternal psychological distress before birth influences gut immunity in mid‐infancy
Maternal psychological distress before birth influences gut immunity in mid‐infancy: AbstractBackgroundMaternal pre‐postnatal psychosocial distress increases the risk for childhood allergic disease. This may occur through a host immunity pathway that involves intestinal secretory Immuno‐globulin A (sIgA). Experimental animal models show changes in the gut microbiome and immunity of offspring when exposed to direct or prenatal maternal stress, but little is known in humans.ObjectiveWe determined the...

Increasing Abdominal Wall Thickness Predicts Complications in Abdominally-Based Breast Reconstruction: A Review of 106 Consecutive Patients: Body mass index (BMI) has long been the proxy for patient selection in obese patients presenting for abdominally based breast reconstruction. Body mass index, however, fails to accurately reflect the distribution of abdominal adipose tissue. This study aims to quantify the effect of abdominal wall thickness on the incidence of post-operative complications and...

Late ventricular standstill following an elective Transcatheter aortic valve implantations (TAVIs)
Late ventricular standstill following an elective TAVI: Transcatheter aortic valve implantations (TAVIs) may be complicated by a need for permanent pacemaker implantation post procedure, usually due to local trauma or compression on the conduction system. There are some features that might help predict that a patient is high risk for developing conduction disease following TAVI, for example, underlying right bundle branch block or use of certain types of TAVI. It might also become apparent during...
