Validation of the Slovenian version of the low anterior resection syndrome score for rectal cancer patients after surgery

suffer major defecation dysfunction due to nerve and sphincter damage combined with poor neorectal capacity ( 4 ). The term Low Anterior Resection Syndrome (LARS) was introduced to describe this complex range of symptoms and the LARS score (LARSS) was defined to assess the severity of complaints and its negative impact on the quality of life (QoL) of patients ( 4 ). These patients typically fall into one of two categories: those with faecal incontinence, frequency, and urgency, and those with constipation and feelings of incomplete emptying. Some report features of

Electroencephalographic abnormalities in sepsis patients in correlation to the calculated prognostic scores: A case series

Introduction Brain dysfunction is a frequent complication of sepsis even in cases of extra-cranial origin and is related to several underlying mechanisms. Encephalography (EEG) seems to be a useful tool in detecting the presence of encephalopathy in patients with sepsis. Although EEG is not a specific test, it is sensitive and can detect abnormalities even when clinical neurologic examination is normal. The aim of this study was to document the EEG abnormalities and search for correlations between EEG findings and commonly used severity and prognostic scores

Accuracy of noninvasive scoring systems to assess advanced liver fibrosis in Thai patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

complications than those without liver fibrosis [ 7 ]. Liver biopsy is a criterion standard by which to diagnose the severity of liver fibrosis, but it has several limitations for clinical practice including the expense and the invasive nature of the procedure, which is associated with a number of complications [ 8 ]. Patients with NASH showed progression of fibrosis in about 5%-32% during a 4.3-to-6 year follow-up period [ 9 , 10 , 11 ]. Several simple noninvasive scoring systems for assessment of liver fibrosis have been proposed for use in general clinical practice
