【Abstract】 Background Early detection of cases, early diagnosis and early standardized treatment are key to controlling human brucellosis and prevent its chronic development. It is important to study the causes and influencing factors of delayed detection of brucellosis by stages for comprehensive measures, targeted prevention and control of brucellosis. Objective To study factors influencing delay in visit and diagnosis of human brucellosis, and provide basis for targeted risk control.Methods Patients with brucellosis reported in Tianjin from 2012 to 2017 were selected as the research object.Self-designed questionnaires were used to collect the data of patients' gender, age, occupation, residence, clinical symptoms and signs, the name of diagnostic disease, the type of preferred hospital, the location of preferred hospital, the clinical stages at the time of consultation, and the first-visit department. According to whether the patient had delay in visit or initial diagnosis, they were divided into the timely visit group, the delayed visit group, the timely initial diagnosis and the delayed initial diagnosis group. Logistic regression was used to analyze the influencing factors of delayed visit and initial diagnosis. Results A total of 808 cases with brucellosis were investigated. The delayed visit rate was 34.8%(281/808) and the delayed rate of initial diagnosis was 60.9%(492/808).There were significant differences in fever, preferred hospital type and preferred hospital location between delayed visit group and timely visit group(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that the type of preferred hospital〔OR=1.70,95%CI(1.48,1.97)〕, the location of preferred hospital〔OR=1.25,95%CI(1.04,1.49)〕were the influencing factors of delay(P<0.05).There were significant differences in occupation, residence, type of first-visit hospital, location of first-visit hospital, clinical stage and first-visit department between the timely initial diagnosis and the delayed initial diagnosis group(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that residence 〔OR=1.53,95%CI(1.11,2.10)〕, type of first-visit hospital〔OR=1.37,95%CI(1.24,1.51)〕, first-visit department〔OR=1.55,95%CI(1.39,1.73)〕were the influencing factors of delay in initial diagnosis(P<0.05).Conclusion Patients with brucellosis have different degrees of delay in the visit and diagnosis. To reduce the detection delay, we should focus on reducing the first diagnosis delay. Residence, type of preferred hospital and first-visit department may be the factors influencing the delay of first-time diagnosis of brucellosis.

【Abstract】 Background Heart failure is an unavoidable syndrome in the end stage of heart disease.It has a high mortality and disability rate. Water and sodium retention is the main manifestation of heart failure. Human component analyzer can accurately evaluate the intracellular and extracellular water content of human body. At present, there are few reports about the application of human component analysis in guiding clinical medication in the treatment of heart failure at home and abroad. Objective To analyze the body fluid distribution and nutritional status of patients with heart failure before and after diuretic treatment. Methods A total of 33 patients with heart failure(heart failure group) admitted to the Department 4 of Cardiology, Hebei General Hospital and 33 patients without heart failure(non-heart failure group) admitted in the same hospital from January 2017 to January 2018 were selected as the study subjects. White blood cell count(WBC), hemoglobin(Hb) , albumin(ALB) , aspartate aminotransferase(AST) , alanine aminotransferase(ALT) , creatinine(Cr) , blood potassium, blood sodium, total cholesterol(TC) , total triglyceride(TG) , high density lipoprotein(HDL), low density lipoprotein(LDL) were measured. Nutrition physicians in our hospital measured extracellular water(ECW) , intracellular water(ICW) , total body water(TBW) , intracellular water/total body water(ICW%) , total body water/body mass (TBW%) , protein content, skeletal muscle content, body fat rate, extracellular water/total body water(ECW%) before and after diuretic treatment in heart failure group and non-heart failure group.The differences between the above indexes before and after diuretic treatment in heart failure group and non-heart failure group were compared. Results There were no significant differences in sex and age between the two groups(χ2=0.243, P=0.622; t=1.405, P=0.165).There were significant differences in Hb, ALB and Cr between the two groups(P<0.05) .ICW% before diuretic treatment in heart failure group was lower than that in non-heart failure group, and ECW%(whole body, right upper extremity, left upper extremity, right lower extremity, left lower extremity) was higher than that in non-heart failure group(P<0.05).After diuretic treatment, ECW%(whole body, right upper extremity, left upper extremity, trunk, right lower extremity, left lower extremity) in heart failure group was higher than that in non-heart failure group(P<0.05) .ICW% increased and ECW%(whole body) decreased after diuretic treatment in heart failure group(P<0.05).Conclusion The abnormal water distribution and fluid retention in extracellular fluid in patients with heart failure showed that ECW(whole body, right upper extremity, left upper extremity, right lower extremity, left lower extremity) increased, while ICW% decreased, especially in lower extremity edema.Diuretic treatment could correct the above abnormalities to a certain extent. ECW%(whole body) decreased and ICW%(whole body) increased in patients with heart failure after diuretic treatment, but ECW%(right upper extremity, left upper extremity, trunk, right lower extremity, left lower extremity) had no difference before and after the treatment in heart failure group.

【Abstract】 Background With the development of endoscopic diagnosis and treatment technology, colonoscopy has become the gold standard for colon cancer screening. Whether a patient's bowel preparation is adequate is closely related to the success of colonoscopy diagnosis and treatment.At present, there are few domestic and foreign studies on the status, cleanliness level and influencing factors of inpatients' bowel preparation.However, relevant studies have shown that the quality of bowel preparation of inpatients is worse than that of outpatients. Therefore, how to improve the quality of bowel preparation of inpatients remains to be studied, which has received extensive attention from scholars at home and abroad. Objective To understand the difference in bowel preparation between inpatients and outpatients undergoing colonoscopy, and to analyze the influencing factors of bowel preparation of inpatients. Methods From January to April 2018, a total of 447 inpatients and outpatients underwent colonoscopy in the Department of Gastroenterology, the Second Hospital of Hebei Medical University were selected by convenience sampling, with the outpatient group of 227 subjects and inpatient group of 220 subjects. Baseline data questionnaire and Activities of Daily Living(ADL) scale were used to understand the general situation of patients. The influencing factors of bowel preparation were studied by using the feedback table of influencing factors of bowel preparation, the bowel preparation quality scored by Ottawa Bowel Preparation Scale(OBPS), and multiple linear regression was used to analyze the influencing factors of OBPS score in inpatients. Results The rate of inadequate bowel preparation in the outpatient group was 23.3%(53/227) and in the inpatient group was 49.5%(109/220). OBPS scores of right colon, transverse colon, left colon, fluid volume and OBPS total score in outpatient group were lower than those in inpatient group(P<0.05).Nine factors,including the low fiber diet time before two days of colonoscopy, the movement steps from taking compound polyethylene glycol electrolyte powder(PEG) to discharging watery stools, the frequency of bowel activity after taking the PEG, the first bowel activity after taking the PEG, the time interval between bowel preparation and colonoscopy, time for discharging residue after taking PEG, the sleep before the colonoscopy, the temperature of water and the exercise two days before colonoscopy, were significantly different between the two groups(P<0.05); multivariate linear regression analysis showed that the movement steps from taking PEG to discharging watery stools(β=0,P<0.001), the frequency of bowel activity after taking the PEG〔β=-0.042,95%CI(-0.078,-0.007),P=0.019〕, time for discharging residue after taking PEG〔β=0.136,95%CI(0.033,0.238),P=0.010〕, the exercise two days before colonoscopy〔β=0.302,95%CI(0.100,0.504),P=0.004〕were influencing factors in OBPS scores of the right colon in inpatients. The steps from taking PEG to discharging watery stools(β=0,P<0.001)was the factor influencing OBPS scores of transverse colon , left colon in inpatients.The steps from taking PEG to discharging watery stools(β=0,P<0.001), the time interval between bowel preparation and colonoscopy〔β=-0.050,95%CI(-0.090,-0.009),P=0.017〕, time for discharging residue after taking PEG〔β=0.155,95%CI(0.045,0.264),P=0.006〕were the influencing factors in OBPS scores of fluid volume in inpatients.The steps from taking PEG to discharging watery stools(β=0,P<0.001), the frequency of bowel activity after taking the PEG〔β=-0.105,95%CI(-0.193,-0.017),P=0.020〕, time for discharging residue after taking PEG〔β=0.481,95%CI(0.226,0.736),P<0.001〕and the exercise two days before colonoscopy〔β=0.681,95%CI(0.178,1.184),P=0.008〕were the influencing factors of OBPS total score in inpatients. Conclusion The movement steps from taking PEG to discharging watery stools, the frequency of bowel activity after taking the PEG, the time interval between bowel preparation and colonoscopy, time to discharge residue after taking PEG and the exercise two days before colonoscopy were the influencing factors of bowel preparation in inpatients. Medical workers should take corresponding measures according to the influencing factors to reduce the impact of inadequate bowel preparation and ensure a smooth progress of colonoscopy diagnosis and treatment.

【Abstract】 Background Hemophagocytic syndrome(HPS) is a kind of serious proliferative disease with high mortality.It can be life-threatening to some children with delayed diagnosis and treatment due to lack of specific diagnostic markers.Heme oxygenase-1(HO-1) is a recently discovered indicator that may be used as a novel diagnostic marker for HPS with higher specificity.However,studies about it are few,so it is important to carry out more evidence-based studies to verify its diagnostic value.Objective To investigate the diagnostic and prognostic values of serum HO-1 in HPS.Methods Between September 2015 and September 2017,231 cases from the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University were enrolled,including 86 with secondary HPS(HPS group),and 66 infection without HPS(infection group) from pediatric ward,and 70 healthy physical examinees from outpatient department(control group). Data about sex,age,etiology and laboratory results of all participants,serum HO-1 levels detected with ELISA in HPS group on the admission day,and before treatment,at the end of the 2nd,4th,8th weeks of treatment,and in other two groups on the admission day,and serum HO-1 mRNA levels detected with real-time PCR in all groups on the admission day were collected.Children in HPS group were given a one-year follow-up,during which 63 survived,and 23 died.ROC analysis was performed to investigate the diagnostic values of serum HO-1,ferritin,and the combination of the two in HPS.Outcomes of HPS children were compared by clinical markers.Results HPS group showed lower average white blood cell count(WBC),hemoglobin(Hb),platelet count(PLT),natural killer(NK)cell percentage and fibrinogen(FIB) levels,and higher average C-reactive protein(CRP),lactate dehydrogenase(LDH) and ferritin levels compared with the infection group(P<0.05). Serum HO-1 and HO-1 mRNA expression levels differed significantly across the groups(P<0.05). In particular,they were the highest in HPS group,followed by infection group,and control group(P<0.05). Serum HO-1 levels of HPS children before treatment,at the end of 2nd,4th,8th weeks of treatment were significantly different(P<0.05). Serum HO-1 level was positively correlated with ferritin in HPS children(rs=0.661,P<0.001). For the diagnosis of HPS,serum HO-1 level had a greater AUC than ferritin(Z=1.68,P=0.046). But the AUC of the combination of the two was greater than that of serum HO-1 or ferritin(Z=1.81,P=0.035;Z=1.98,P=0.023). The survived HPS children showed much lower average levels of CRP,LDH,ferritin and HO-1 but much higher average PLT level compared with those decreased(P<0.05). Conclusion Serum HO-1 level in children with HPS is significantly higher than that of those with other infections,which is closely correlated with serum ferritin level.And the combination of the two showed a higher diagnostic value in HPS,which may serve as a new molecular diagnostic and prognostic marker for HPS in children.

【Abstract】 Background Pelvic organ prolapse is a common disease which seriously affects the normal life of women.Surgery is one of the first choice for treatment.In recent years, laparoscopic pelvic floor reconstruction has been paid more and more attention.Many scholars believe that laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy(LSC)  is a gold standard operation with minimal recurrence risk.However, there are many disadvantages in traditional LSC operation. Objective To explore clinical efficacy of laparoscopic cerclage sacrohysteropexy for moderate to severe pelvic organ prolapseon, and to assess its effectiveness and safety. Methods A retrospective analysis was performed on the clinical data, from December 2016 to March 2018 in Jiangxi Maternal and Child Health Hospital, in a total of 60 patients with severe moderate to severe pelvic organ prolapseon who received LSC, with 30 cases received laparoscopic cerclage sacrohysteropexy(modified group)  and 30 cases received traditional LSC(traditional group) selected by random number table method.Diagnosis and grading of pelvic organ prolapse were identified by Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification System(POP-Q) . The operation time, blood loss, hospital stay, days of indwelling catheter and complications of the two groups were compared after the operation, and we measured the POP-Q value at every point to assess postoperative pelvic floor function and evaluated preoperative and postoperative quality of life by using the pelvic floor distress inventory(PFDI-20).The difference between the two groups before and after operation was also compared. Results All procedures were successfully completed by laparoscopic therapy. The operation time,blood loss of the modified group were significantly less than those of the traditional group(P<0.05).The follow-up time were 3-14 months after surgery, none of the cases were lost.None of the women had recurrent uterine prolapse at 3 or 12 months after the treatment, with objective cure rate of 100%, and the anatomical cure rate of 100%. The median line of anterior vaginal wall was 3 cm away from hymen margin(Aa) , the reverse fold of anterior vaginal fornix was the farthest from Aa point(Ba) , the median line of posterior vaginal wall was 3 cm away from hymen margin(Ap), and the measurement value of the farthest point(Bp)of posterior vaginal fornix in the modified group was closer to the physiological state than that of the traditional group(P<0.05); the POP-Q values at Aa, Ba, the furthest exterior cervical orifice(C), Ap in the two groups and Bp in the modified group after operation were closer to the physiological state than those before operation(P<0.05).Before operation, Pelvic Organ Prolapse Distress Inventory(POPDI-6) and Urinary Distress Inventory 6(UDI-6) scores of the modified group were higher than those of the traditional group(P<0.05) . Postoperative PFDI-20, POPDI-6 and UDI-6 scores in the two groups were lower than those before operation, while post-operative Colorectal-anal Distress Inventory 8(CRADI-8)score in the traditional group was lower than that before operation(P<0.05).Conclusion The two types of surgery for uterine prolapse are both effective. The laparoscopic cerclage sacrohysteropexy is suitable for patients with moderate to severe pelvic organ prolapse requiring uterus preservation, especially for young women.The mesh placement is lower, and the operation is simpler, with short operation time, short learning curve, small trauma, less bleeding, and faster recovery.The subjective and objective cure rate for patients is high after operation. It is expected to be promoted in clinic.

【Abstract】 Background Sleep problem has become a common health issue in critically ill patients.Poor-quality sleep not only increases the level of anxiety in such patients,but also may lead to delirium and other cognitive impairments.Although pharmacologic treatment can improve sleep quality,it also has a series of side effects.So,relieving the conditions via stimulating sensory perception and creating relaxing effects by nonpharmacological interventions is becoming increasingly important.However,whether use of earplugs and eye masks can improve the quality of sleep and reduce the incidence of delirium in this population,the evidence is still insufficient.Objective To evaluate the effectiveness of earplugs and eye masks on the incidence of delirium and sleep quality in critically ill patients.Methods We searched the databases of PubMed,Medline,CINAHL,Cochrane Library,CNKI,Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform and CBM from inception to March 2018 for articles regarding the improvement of sleep quality in critically ill patients by use of earplugs and/or eye masks.Data extraction and quality assessment were conducted on the eligible articles.Meta-analysis was carried out with RevMan 5.3 software.Results Twenty articles with a total of 1 364 patients were finally included.The results of meta-analysis showed that the use of earplugs and eye masks significantly reduced the incidence of delirium 〔RR=0.52,95%CI(0.41,0.66),P<0.000 01〕.PSQI score in the experimental group was lower than that of control group 〔MD=-4.63,95%CI(-6.82,-2.43),P<0.000 1〕.The sleep effectiveness score in the experimental group was higher than that of control group 〔SMD=1.54,95%CI(0.48,2.61),P=0.005〕.The sleep disturbance score in the experimental group was higher than that of control group 〔SMD=1.36,95%CI(0.55,2.17),P=0.001〕.There was no significant difference in sleep supplementation score between two groups 〔SMD=1.25,95%CI(-0.34,2.83),P=0.12〕.Sleep duration did not differ significantly between two groups 〔SMD=1.11,95%CI(-0.43,2.65),P=0.16〕.Distribution of sleep duration showed no obvious difference between two groups 〔RR=1.00,95%CI(0.76,1.31),P=1.00〕.Conclusion Earplugs and eye masks are effective interventions to reduce the incidence of delirium and improve sleep quality of critically ill patients.But it is not certain whether they could improve sleep duration,too.

【Abstract】 Background Femoral fixation methods for an anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) reconstruction,can be divided into suspensory fixation(indirect fixation) away from the joint and cross-pin fixation(direct fixation) near the joint surface,according to the distance between the fixed point and the joint line.But there is no consensus on which fixation method is more superior.Objective To perform a comparative meta-analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of suspensory versus cross-pin femoral fixation in an ACL reconstruction.Methods We systematically retrieved the databases of CNKI,Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform,VIP,CBM,PubMed,EMBase and Cochrane Library for RCTs regarding ACL-reconstructed patients with suspensory femoral fixation(experimental group) compared with those with cross-pin femoral fixation(control group) using subject headings combined with free words and key words as of December 1,2017.Quality assessment was conducted on eligible RCTs.Meta-analysis was performed using RevMan 5.3 software.Results A total of 15 RCTs were included,and 7 of them were initially rated as 1b and other 8 were 2b by the Oxford Centre for Evidence-based Medicine Levels of Evidence,involving 961 cases,of whom 482 with suspensory femoral fixation,and other 479 with cross-pin femoral fixation.Meta-analysis showed that both groups had no significant differences in Lysholm knee score at 12 months after surgery
〔MD=-0.42,95%CI(-1.09,0.25),P=0.22〕,KT1000 arthrometer measurements 〔MD=-0.22,95%CI(-0.51,0.08),P=0.15〕 at 12 months after surgery,and KT1000 arthrometer measurements 〔MD=0,95%CI(-0.36,0.36),P=1.00〕 at 24 months after surgery.Moreover,both groups also showed no significant differences in the percentages of normal,nearly normal,abnormal and severely abnormal IKDC scores 〔OR=0.93,95%CI(0.61,1.42),P=0.73;OR=0.91,95%CI(0.60,1.38),P=0.65;OR=1.35,95%CI(0.66,2.73),P=0.41;OR=4.05,95%CI(0.44,37.70),P=0.22〕.In terms of bone tunnel enlargement,descriptive analysis(this method was used due to methods for measuring bone tunnel and statistical results in the RCTs were different) found that,the experimental group had greater enlargement than the control group.And the incidence of complications was similar in both groups〔OR=0.80,95%CI(0.39,1.64),P=0.55〕.Results of postsurgical IKDC score from all studies scattered in the funnel plot,which showed a symmetrical shape,indicating the level of publication bias was low.Conclusion Suspensory and cross-pin femoral fixation have similar postsurgical outcomes evaluated by indicators such as Lysholm knee score at 12 months after surgery,KT1000 arthrometer measurements at 12 and 24 months after surgery,and IKDC scores as well as the incidence of complications,except the latter produces a greater impact on reducing bone tunnel enlargement due to the movement of graft.In view of the above-mentioned aspects,femoral fixation method should be selected based on an overall consideration of various factors.

【Abstract】 Background Syphilis is a global public health problem.Primary syphilis is closely associated with HIV infection and can promote the infection.Moreover, it increases the risk of transmission of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome by 3 to 5 times. The number of recently reported cases of syphilis in China is increasing rapidly. It ranks third among Class A and B infectious diseases in terms of incidence, and has become an important public health and social problem. Objective To investigate the epidemiological characteristics of syphilis, a common sexually transmitted disease, in Songjiang District of Shanghai from 2007 to 2017, to provide scientific evidence for the development of targeted prevention and control measures.Methods Data of reported and monitored syphilis cases in Shanghai's Songjiang District from 2007 to 2017 were collected and descriptively analyzed. Results A total of 8 546 cases of syphilis were reported in Songjiang District of Shanghai from 2007 to 2017, with an average annual incidence rate of 48.23/100 000. The average annual incidence rates of primary, secondary, and latent syphilis were 14.14/100 000, 9.66/100 000 and 24.33/100 000, respectively. During this period, the overall incidence of syphilis showed a U-shaped upward trend.It peaked(68.17/100 000) in 2016. The incidence of syphilis decreased by 6.13/100 000 per year from 2007 to 2010, but increased by 5.64/100 000 annually from 2010 to 2017.The characteristics of this group of syphilis were: latent syphilis accounted for 51.84%(4 430/8 546); the reported cases peaked from June to September; local residents made up a large majority of the total〔57.65%(4 927/8 546)〕; male-female ratio was 1∶1.06; persons aged 20 to 59 accounted for 81.24%(6 943/8 546) of the total.Subgroup analysis by place of hukou and gender showed that, local males outnumbered females, with a male-female ratio of 1.30∶1 in general, and a male-female ratio of 1.73∶1 among the primary or secondary syphilis cases.However, among nonlocal cases, males were less than females, showing a male-female ratio of 0.60∶1 in general.Subgroup analysis by gender and age group found that females of 20-49 years accounted for 74.75%(3 289/4 400) of all the female cases, and males of 20-49 years accounted for 56.82%(2 356/4 146) of all the male cases, indicating that younger females were associated with increased risk of syphilis. Subgroup analysis by stage of syphilis and gender revealed that, the prevalence of primary syphilis was higher in males than that of females〔35.50%(1 472/4 146)vs 20.98%(923/4 400)〕. But the prevalence of secondary syphilis was lower in males than that of females〔19.83%(822/4 146)vs 20.02%(881/4 400)〕, and the prevalence of latent syphilis was also lower in males than that of females〔44.40%(1 841/4 146)vs 58.84%(2 589/4 400)〕.Most local syphilis cases were 30-59 years old〔59.06%(2 910/4 927)〕, but most nonlocal syphilis cases were 20-49 years old〔85.24%(3 085/3 619)〕. Conclusion The incidence of syphilis in Songjiang District is increasing year by year. To control the transmission and dissemination of syphilis, the following measures are recommended: strengthening the monitoring of syphilis and standardizing the treatment according to specific syphilis features, enhancing syphilis screening in females(including local and nonlocal)and local older people, intensifying the propaganda of sexually transmitted diseases prevention and treatment, and advocating safer sex behaviors.

【Abstract】 Background Moderate and severe cancer pain has become one of the reasons for the decline in the quality of life of cancer patients.Although strong opioids represented by morphine are effective for it, there are 40% to 60% of patients still cannot adequately control their cancer pain, and the way in which transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation(TENS) assists drugs in the treatment of cancer pain has been gradually recognized by scholars. Objective To explore the effect of TENS on the efficacy and safety of opioid analgesic insufficiency in bone metastatic cancer pain. Methods A total of 48 patients with bone metastatic cancer pain in Jiangnan Hospital Affiliated to Zhejiang Chinese Medicine University and Zhejiang Cancer Hospital from September 2017 to May 2018 were selected and then divided into the opioid group(24 cases) who treated with opioid only and the combined treatment group(24 cases) who treated with TENS combined with opioid according to the random number table method.The pain was assessed by Brief Pain Inventory; the 24-hour equivalent morphine dosage, the number of breakthrough pain and adverse drug reactions for 24 hours were recorded before treatment, 2 weeks and 4 weeks after treatment.The differences between the two groups were compared. Results The most severe pain, average pain and current pain scores after 2 weeks and 4 weeks of treatment in the combined treatment group were lower than those in the opioid group(P<0.05) . The most severe pain and average pain after 2 weeks and 4 weeks of treatment in the two groups were significantly lower than those before treatment in the same group(P<0.05).The equivalent morphine dosage after 2 weeks and 4 weeks of treatment was higher than that before treatment in two groups(P<0.05) , and the dosage of the combined treatment group was significantly lower than that of the opioid group in the same period(P<0.05) .The number of breakthrough pain episodes after 2 weeks and 4 weeks of treatment in two groups was less than that before treatment(P<0.05) , and the reduction was more obvious in the combined treatment group than that in the opioid group (P<0.05).During the treatment period, the adverse reactions of opioids in the two groups mainly included nausea, vomiting, constipation, dizziness, and pruritus, without any adverse reactions such as drowsiness and respiratory depression. The incidence of nausea, vomiting and constipation in the combined treatment group was lower than that in the opioid group(P<0.05) .Conclusion Combined with opioid therapy, TENS can effectively alleviate bone metastatic cancer pain, slow down opioid dosage process in patients with cancer pain, and reduce the incidence of adverse reactions, with relatively higher efficacy and safety.
