Recent updates on electrochemical degradation of bio-refractory organic pollutants using BDD anode: a mini review.

Hide Abstract
Boron-doped diamond (BDD) is playing an important role in environmental electrochemistry and has been successfully applied to the degradation of various bio-refractory organic pollutants. However, the review concerning recent progress in this research area is still very limited. This mini-review updated recent advances on the removal of three kinds of bio-refractory wastewaters including pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and dyes using BDD electrode. It summarized the important parameters in three electrochemical oxidation processes, i.e., anodic oxidation (AO), electro-Fenton (EF), and photoelectro-Fenton (PEF) and compared their different degradation mechanisms and behaviors. As an attractive improvement of PEF, solar photoelectro-Fenton using sunlight as UV/vis source presented cost-effectiveness, in which the energy consumption for enrofloxacin removal was 0.246 kWh/(g TOC), which was much lower than that of 0.743 and 0.467 kWh/(g TOC) by AO and EF under similar conditions. Finally the existing problems and future prospects in research were suggested.

Hide Abstract
Intertrochanteric fractures in elderly patients are always associated with poor prognosis in the functional outcome as a result of the complications and mortality. A retrospective study was performed in our institution, 303 consecutive patients were followed up with mean age of 81.7 years. 147 were treated with PFNA, and 156 were underwent hemiarthroplasty. The average follow-up period was 39.9 months. The mortality at 1 month, 1 year, 3 years and the total was 6.6%, 18.6%, 27.6% and 30.3%, respectively. There were no significant differences between the groups in terms of demographic data. There were statistical significances in the operative statistics, especially the anaesthesia, operation lasting time, blood loss, blood transfusion and the drainage. There was no significant difference in Harris Hip Score between PFNA and hemiarthroplasty group, but the detail items were quite different. Significant difference was found in the excellent-to-fine rate (PFNA 90.2% and hemiarthroplasty 79.6%). Complications occurred in 34 patients, although incidences of complications were higher in hemiarthroplasty group (14.1% vs. PFNA 8.96%), no statistical difference was found. For elderly patients with intertrochanteric fractures, PFNA was superior to hemiarthroplasty according to the operative statistics, but there were no significant differences in functional outcome.

Hide Abstract
Hip fractures are always associated with a high postoperative mortality, the preoperative predictors for mortality have neither been well identified or summarised. This systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to identify the preoperative non-interventional predictors for mortality in hip fracture patients, especially focused on 1 year mortality.

The tumor suppressor role of Src homology phosphotyrosine phosphatase 2 in hepatocellular carcinoma.
J. Cancer Res. Clin. Oncol.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The human gene PTPN11, which encodes the non-receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase of Src homology phosphotyrosine phosphatase 2 (Shp2), has been previously well interpreted as a proto-oncogene in a variety of malignancies. However, the tumor suppressor role of Shp2 has also been reported. The present study was conducted to investigate the role of Shp2 expression and its associated clinical manifestations in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Preoperative classification assessment reliability and influence on the length of intertrochanteric fracture operations.
Int Orthop
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The accuracy of intertrochanteric fracture classification is important; indeed, the patient outcomes are dependent on their classification. The aim of this study was to use the AO classification system to evaluate the variation in classification between X-ray and computed tomography (CT)/3D CT images. Then, differences in the length of surgery were evaluated based on two examinations.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
