Comparative computed flow dynamic analysis of different optimization techniques in left main either provisional or culotte stenting

. At the wall opposite to the carina, the SKB, 2SK, and POT–KB-POT techniques provide the best performance in terms of rheology with a very small area of low WSS and high WSS value in general, while the KB and POT-side-POT techniques resulted again as the worst performers ( Table 3 , Figure 3 ). Discussion Our study suggested that from a fluid dynamic point of view, for LM provisional stenting, the POT, KB and 2SK techniques showed similar beneficial impacts on the bifurcation rheology, which were of higher WSS at the opposite wall and smaller surface area of

Therapeutic approaches of obstructive sleep apnea in China

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by repetitive episodes of complete and partial obstructions of upper airway during sleep. In general population, OSA is highly prevalent and affects approximately 34% of men and 17% of women in aged 30-70 years.[ 1 ] Individuals with OSA experience a variety of symptoms and conditions such as fatigue, excessive daytime sleepiness, impaired cognitive performance, headache, and an increased incidence of motor vehicle accidents. Many studies have shown a link between OSA and cardiovascular disease, chronic heart

Citrate: How to get started and what, when, and how to monitor?

will be enough in 99% of the cases and surely when using the predilution system as lower concentrations are used). Metabolic acidosis due to failure to metabolize citric acid can be diagnosed early by routine metabolic monitoring. It is corrected by discontinuing or tapering the dose of citrate and by adjusting the replacement fluid. In case of metabolic alkalosis, large amounts of citrate may enter the systemic circulation. If ultrafiltration flow gradually declines as a result of decreased filter performance induced by increased clogging, while blood flow is
