Multiple organ dysfunction induced by sepsis often involves kidney injury. Extracellular histones released in response to damage-associated molecular patterns are known to facilitate sepsis-induced organ dysfunction. Recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin (rhTM) and its lectin-like domain (D1) exert anti-inflammatory effects and neutralize damage-associated molecular patterns. However, the effects of rhTM and D1 on extracellular histone H3 levels and kidney injury remain poorly understood. Our...

Severe muscle weakness concomitant with preferential depletion of myosin has been observed in several pathological conditions. Here we used the steroid-denervation (S-D) rat model, which shows dramatic decrease in myosin content and force production, to test whether electrical stimulation (ES) treatment can prevent these deleterious changes. S-D was induced by cutting the sciatic nerve and subsequent daily injection of dexamethasone for 7 days. For ES treatment, plantarflexor muscles were electr...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to clarify whether initiation of a rapid response system (RRS) affected the incidence of unplanned intensive care unit (ICU) admissions (UIAs) for treatment of organ dysfunction in the early postoperative period. Methods: We retrospectively identified patients admitted unexpectedly to the ICU from general wards within the first 72 h after surgery between January 2006 and December 2017. Patients with UIAs were divided into two groups: a pre-RRS group (Janu...

Background Rectus sheath block is a common peripheral nerve block for patients undergoing umbilical hernia repair surgery. However, rectus sheath block alone can affect only anterior branches of intercostal nerves and, therefore, is incomplete for postoperative analgesia for the anterior abdomen, which is innervated by both anterior and lateral branches. We describe a successful perioperative analgesia with ultrasound-guided para-umbilical block after pediatric umbilical hernia surgery.
