Review Sistematic

Sara Peracchia, Giuseppe Curcio
The public opinion is ever more interested and worried about possible effects of exposure to VGs (video games) on human life and well-being. Scientific literature shows several evidences highlighting negative outcomes on behavioural, emotive, cognitive and physical health spheres. All these aspects are intrinsically linked to sleep quality and quantity and to date very few studies directly investigated the effects of videogame (VG) exposure on sleep and post-sleep cognitive status. The aim of the present systematic review is to examine the impact that the exposure to VGs can produce on sleep pattern and the consequent post-sleep cognitive abilities...

According to the Human Microbiome Project (HMP), a healthy human body contains ten times more microbes than human cells. Microbial communities colonize different organs of the body, playing fundamental roles both in human health and disease. Despite the vast scientific knowledge of the role of microbial communities in a living body, little is known at present about microbial changes occurring after death, thus leading many authors to investigate the composition of the thanatomicrobiome and its potential applications in the forensic field...

The dental unit waters are divided in two different groups, because of their chemical and microbial composition proprieties: in the first there is the "incoming dental unit water", drinking water that arrived directly in the dental chair unit through the municipal water system; in the second there is the "waste water", that represents the whole dental unit waste water. Regarding the lack of a complete systematic review on the quality of dental unit wastewater, the aim of the current research was to systematically study the incoming dental unit water and the waste one, focusing the attention on the problem of the wastewater contamination and its regulations...

Anxiety disorders are very prevalent in children and adolescents, causing serious impairments. The pharmacological treatment for these disorders is not much investigated in children and adolescents. Thus, there is no consensus about its indication. The present study aims to check the efficacy and tolerability of drugs used for the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents in the context of evidence based medicine. A systematic literature review was carried out in the main databases. In addition, authors were contacted...

The evolution of medical thought from the precientific phase during Renaissance toward the beginning of scientific phase in the XVII Century is reviewed. This phase was dominated by the great event of the discovery of blood circulation. The irradiation of this doctrine was parallel to that of Copernican theory. Harvey, the starter of experimental method in medicine, graduated at the University of Padua, where previously studied Copernicus. There he was influenced by Galileo's teaching, from whom adopted the quantitative focussing for his physiological research...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors show an increasing incidence. Immunohistochemistry is mandatory to make differential diagnosis with other mesenchimal tumors. We retrospectively reviewed 15 primary stomach GISTs operated during the last decade. Gastroscopy, Ultrasonography and CT scan were employed to obtain the diagnosis. Tumor size ranged from 1.5 to 30 cm in diameter. Treatment consisted of curative surgical resection without sistematic lymph node dissection. A wedge resection was sufficient in 8 cases. In 2 patients a distal subtotal gastrectomy was required and in 1 a total enlarged gastrectomy with pancreaticosplenectomy was performed...

Diabetes insipidus and its' treatment, are revised. New pathogenic concepts stressing the roll of osmoreceptors in its' etiological causes are explained. In the diagnosis, great importance is given to recently sistematized proof by Miller-Moses. This allows, to evaluate the grade of deficiency in vasopressin as well as new therapeutic possibilities, using differents drugs other from the classical "oily" solution of vasopressin.

Authors present a child three years old with an idiopathic left anterior hemiblock. Causes of left anterior hemiblock in children are reviewed, and it is concluded that although a left anterior hemiblock justifies a thorough non-invasive cardiologic and sistematic study and long-term follow-up, sometimes it may be the expression of an anatomic and/or physiologic variant.
