There is increasing evidence suggests that elevated levels of postprandial triacylglycerol (TAG)-rich lipoproteins may promote the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). A prolonged and elevated postprandial lipemia is associated with increased risk of CVD by a variety of mechanisms such as insulin resistance, inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress. However, current evidence on the acute effects of type of fats on postprandial ... Read More

Part 1: The goal of this clinical research study is to compare the technical quality of 2 ways of performing endorectal magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging (MRSI) of the prostate, using a "3 Tesla (3T)" scanner. This is the first of a 2-part study. In Part 1, researchers will compare the use of perfluorocarbon compound (PFC) within the endorectal coil with the use of air in order to try to find out which technique may help to produce better-quality ...

The purpose of this study is to find out the Lidco Rapid ( monitoring tool gives cardiac output) is as equivalent in determining the hemodynamic assessment in cardiac surgical scenarios as the most often used pulmonary artery catheter, which is much more invasive than the Lidco Rapid. This will be accomplished through online surveys which have different cardiac surgery scenarios and will be distributed to cardiac fellowship trained anesthesiologists. The ... Read More

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the leading cause of acquired long term disability among children and young adults. Deficits in attention and memory are common and persist for years after moderate or severe TBI. The similarity between these symptoms and those of children with AD/HD, the efficacy of methylphenidate in the treatment of AD/HD, and the efficacy of methylphenidate in improving recovery of animals with brain injuries, support the need to study ...

The 40 resident study subjects will be randomized to either receive a training session on use of a pocket-sized ultrasound or to receive training on physical exam skills. Following these sessions the subjects will have the opportunity to practice their skills during clinical rounds at BWH inpatient and outpatient settings. Four weeks after the training session all study subjects will take part in an assessment of their diagnostic skills. During this ... Read More

Aim: To evaluate the clinical survival of fluoride sealants applied in first permanent molars affected by Molar-Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH). Material and Methods: For this case control study, it was selected 41 first permanent molars of the 21 children aged 6-8 years. MIH was classified by one calibrated examiner (kappa 0.80) according severity of the MIH lesion (EAPD, 2003). Inclusion criteria were FPM with MIH or sound (without MIH), fully erupted, ... Read More

This study will compare interscalene nerve block versus liposomal bupivacaine (Exparel) for pain control after total shoulder replacements. Each method will be assessed in terms of post operative pain scores, pain medication consumption, length of stay, complications (nerve injuries, hematomas, cardiac/respiratory events) and rate of readmission due to pain. The aims of this study will be achieved through a randomized controlled trial and cost-effectiveness ... Read More
