BACKGROUND: The current study aims to compare the variability of positional control of the club in the starting period of downswing and the orientation of the clubface during impact in elite and intermediate golfers. METHODS: Seven elite and thirteen intermediate golfers were recorded by an eight-camera VICON motion capture system while putting with a pitch club. Six retro-reflective markers were attached to the club to build a biomechanical model for analyzing swinging movements...

BACKGROUND: Anti-tuberculosis (TB) drug-induced liver injury (ATLI) is a common adverse effect of anti-TB drugs. Whether regular monitoring of liver function can ameliorate ATLI has been widely debated. The current study aimed to investigate the liver test monitoring status of patients receiving anti-TB treatment in Taiwan, as well as the impact of scheduled liver function monitoring on the risk of ATLI. METHODS: Patients who received anti-TB treatment at our hospital between 2009 and 2017 were enrolled for retrospective analysis...

BACKGROUND: It is importance to train the inter-professional collaboration (IPC) and team-efficiency (TE) of medical trainees. This prospective study evaluate whether implementation of scenario/video-created workshops in integrated IPC and TE (IIT) program provides additional benefits for IPC-TE skills of nursing trainees. METHODS: Mock simulation with two IIT scenarios was held as pre-intervention IPC-TE assessment. Basic and advanced workshops were arranged for teams of intervention groups for creation of discipline-specific scenario and video...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate a single surgeon's experience with minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty (MIS-TKA) and report the 9-year learning curve and trends in clinical outcomes based on assessment of surgical skills, radiographic alignments and patient's function scores. METHODS: This retrospective study included a total of 4107 knees from 3,403 patients undergoing bilateral or unilateral MIS-TKA between March 2004 and February 2013. MIS-TKA was performed through a modified mini-midvastus approach...

BACKGROUND: To compare the effects of volume-targeted ventilation (VTV) with pressure-limited ventilation (PLV) in preterm infants. METHODS: A total of 100 preterm infants who required mechanical ventilation during the two study periods were investigated. PLV was used for 50 preterm infants during period 1 and VTV was used for 50 preterm infants during period 2. Clinical outcomes, including mortality rate, duration of mechanical ventilation, air leak syndrome, hypocarbia, hypercarbia, hypoxemia, combined outcome of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Problem-based learning (PBL) has been widely adopted in medical education, however its application has been questioned due to the lack of interaction with a real patient. Standardized patients (SPs) might solve this problem. Herein, we tested the impact of integrating SPs in a PBL tutorial. METHODS: In 2017, a total of 313 students, 66 facilitators and 36 SPs were enrolled at National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan. The SPs presented the symptoms/signs of the cases then the students interviewed them to obtain the detail history...

BACKGROUND: In the present study, we investigated whether blink synkinesis monitoring during microvascular decompression (MVD) is effective for predicting long-term outcomes in patients with hemifacial spasm (HFS). METHODS: This retrospective study included 69 patients who had undergone MVD for HFS at a tertiary hospital. All patients underwent intra-operative monitoring of blink synkinesis, lateral spread responses (LSRs), and facial nerve motor evoked potentials (FNMEPs)...

BACKGROUND: Although cardiovascular oxidative stress is examined in type 2 diabetes, there is relatively limited number of reports about the effect of pioglitazone, an insulin sensitizer, on cardiovascular oxidative stress in sucrose diet-induced metabolic syndrome (MetS). As a regulator of cardiovascular homeostasis, Thioredoxin (TRX) has an important role in defense against oxidative stress in cardiovascular diseases. The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of pioglitazone on oxidative stress markers and TRX1 level in tissues of both heart and aorta from MetS rats...

BACKGROUND: CYP2C19 loss-of-function single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with poor responses of clopidogrel in secondary prevention of ischemic stroke (IS). It is still unclear whether these SNPs, which may result in poor cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) enzymatic activity, affect the occurrence of IS and its subtypes. The present study evaluated the relationship between the CYP2C19 loss-of-function alleles and IS. METHODS: Eight-hundred-and-sixty-eight patients with IS and 557 non-stroke (NS) control individuals were prospectively recruited...

BACKGROUND: The use of liquid biopsy to detect epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) T790M mutation in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a promising method to screen patients eligible for third-generation EGFR inhibitors. Proficiency testing (PT) programs involving liquid biopsy are currently lacking. In this study, we conducted a PT program to assess the quality assurance of liquid biopsy tests for detecting EGFR T790M mutation in molecular pathology laboratories in Taiwan. METHODS: Whole blood samples (2 mL) with various concentrations of the EGFR T790M mutation were prepared and analyzed in six participating laboratories using their clinically validated assays...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the hormone profile of young men with the chief complaint of erectile dysfunction (ED) and determine the comorbidities in this population. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of men aged 18-40 years who presented with ED and had a hormone evaluation but without prior medication for hormone manipulation from 2002-2016 at a tertiary care institution. Data was obtained on demographics, co-morbidities, medications, and hormonal evaluations...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major causative agent of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The rapid progress in the development of direct-acting antivirals has greatly elevated the cure rate to ≥ 95% in recent years. However, the high cost of treatment is not affordable to patients in some countries, necessitating the development of less expensive treatment. METHODS: We adopted a cell culture-derived HCV system to screen a library of the pure compounds extracted from herbs deposited in the chemical bank of the National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine, Taiwan...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) treatment are more susceptible to latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). The aim of the present study was to determine the rate of active TB in patients with Behçet's Disease (BD) pre- and post-anti-TNF treatment and to evaluate the long-term efficacy of LTBI screening as primary prophylaxis in China. METHODS: This retrospective study included BD patients eligible for anti-TNF therapy at a single institution in Fudan University, China...
