We report the characteristics of diabetes mellitus in 10 patients with a suspicion of hereditary hemochromatosis. The results of this personal series were compared to literature's data described in a recent article. Early diagnosis and treatment by phlebotomy can improve blood glucose control in the early stages of the disease. If diagnosis occurs later, when the patient already needs insulin therapy, diabetes will not be improved by phlebotomy anymore. [less ▲]

Poly(2-dimethylamino-ethylmethacrylate) (PDMAEMA), a cationic polymer, has been widely reported as a nonviral carrier. Despite the fact that the cytotoxicity of this polymer has been extensively studied, there is a lack of information about its blood compatibility. Hence, this work evaluates the hemocompatibility of free-form PDMAEMA homopolymers differing in molecular weight (Mw) with or without a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) sequence in the form of a palm tree-like structure. Poly(ethylenimine) (PEI) was used as a reference in order to compare its hemoreactivity. Hemagglutination, hemolysis, platelet number, blood coagulation, and the complement systems were assessed in normal human whole blood according to the ISO 10993-4. Results showed that Mw, concentration, and incubation time strongly affected the hemocompatibility of the polymers evaluated. Our in vitro observations highlight that PDMAEMA homopolymers interacted strongly with the surface of the red blood cells but not with the inner structure of the membrane, while PEI behaved in the opposite way. No clear correlation has been evidenced between PDMAEMA-induced hemagglutination, PEI-induced hemagglutination, and hemolysis. Interestingly, if these polyelectrolytes strongly affect the platelets and blood coagulation cascades in a dose dependent way, none of them significantly affects the complement system. Our work reveals new knowledge on the toxicology of 2 families of polycations largely explored for gene delivery and on their mechanisms of cellular and humoral interactions. [less ▲]

The optimization of nanoparticles (NP) for drug delivery, in particular to target the BBB, imposes to verify their hemocompatibility both for toxicological and efficiency of targeting perspectives. Indeed the large surface they are able to expose to the biological environment promotes their interaction with various biochemicals, in particular proteins which can after adsorption elicit the activation of biological cascades either responsible from NP clearance or/and harmful body reaction (inflammatory / coagulation). In the frame of the European Integrated Project : “Nanobiopharmaceutics”, we have the opportunity to compare the hemoreactivity of about 145 different NP samples differing in core and surface chemistry and classified according to their expected difference in hydrophobicity based on the nature of their core materials. According to this classification, PLGA nanoparticles, polyglycidol-polyethyethylene oxide nanoparticles, polyglycidol thyolated or polyacrylamide nanogels, and polyelectrolyte complexes either based on polyamidoamine or poly(N,N-dimethylamino-2-ethylmethacrylate) have been evaluated within a concentration ranging from 0.3 to 1000 =g/mL. These in vitro tests have been realized for screening purpose adopting normal human bloods and according to Iso 10993. As a summary of this extensive study, our results clearly highlight that most of the polymeric nanoparticles evaluated give rise to some alterations of the blood components. In particular the platelets, intrinsic pathway of coagulation and complement activation are the most reactive biological parameters in the presence of these nanostuctures. Although not strictly related to the surface chemistry our classification has also allowed us to derive some clear correlations between nanomaterial properties and their hemoreactivity. Within the class of polyelectrolyte electrolyte complexes, the modifications brought in the surface chemistry has drastically improved their hemoreactivity. [less ▲]

In humans, some evidence suggests that there are two different types of spindles during sleep, which differ by their scalp topography and possibly some aspects of their regulation. To test for the existence of two different spindle types, we characterized the activity associated with slow (11-13 Hz) and fast (13-15 Hz) spindles, identified as discrete events during non-rapid eye movement sleep, in non-sleep-deprived human volunteers, using simultaneous electroencephalography and functional MRI. An activation pattern common to both spindle types involved the thalami, paralimbic areas (anterior cingulate and insular cortices), and superior temporal gyri. No thalamic difference was detected in the direct comparison between slow and fast spindles although some thalamic areas were preferentially activated in relation to either spindle type. Beyond the common activation pattern, the increases in cortical activity differed significantly between the two spindle types. Slow spindles were associated with increased activity in the superior frontal gyrus. In contrast, fast spindles recruited a set of cortical regions involved in sensorimotor processing, as well as the mesial frontal cortex and hippocampus. The recruitment of partially segregated cortical networks for slow and fast spindles further supports the existence of two spindle types during human non-rapid eye movement sleep, with potentially different functional significance.

We investigated hemodynamics and plasma catecholamine concentrations in eight consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic adrenalectomy for suspected pheochromocytoma. The same anesthesia protocol was used in all patients: a continuous infusion of sufentanil 0.5 microg x kg(-1) x h(-1) and isoflurane 0.4% (end-tidal) in 50% N2O/O2. Systolic arterial pressure was maintained between 120 and 160 mm Hg by adjusting an infusion of nicardipine, a calcium-channel blocker, while tachycardia (>100 bpm) was treated by 1-mg boluses of atenolol. Hemodynamics (thermodilution technique) and plasma catecholamine concentrations were measured before surgery, after the induction of anesthesia, after turning the patient to the lateral position, during pneumoperitoneum, during tumor manipulation, after adrenalectomy, and at the end of surgery. Two events resulted in significant catecholamine release: creation of the pneumoperitoneum and adrenal gland manipulation. As a consequence, a twofold increase in cardiac output was recorded. Adjustments of nicardipine infusion (2-6 microg x kg(-1) x min(-1)) minimized changes in mean arterial pressure. Beta-adrenergic blockade was necessary in six patients. In conclusion, laparoscopic adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma results in marked catecholamine release during pneumoperitoneum and tumor manipulation. Titration of a nicardipine infusion allowed easy and quick control of the hemodynamic aberrancies related to these processes. IMPLICATIONS: Pneumoperitoneum during laparoscopy, now used for adrenalectomy, may complicate anesthetic management of patients with pheochromocytoma. In this study, laparoscopic adrenalectomy was associated with catecholamine release during the creation of pneumoperitoneum and tumor manipulation. Adjustments of a nicardipine infusion readily attenuated the subsequent hemodynamic aberrancies. [less ▲]

Hemodynamics during laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anesthesia (isoflurane in N2O/O2 (50%)) were investigated in 15 nonobese ASA Class I patients by using invasive hemodynamic monitoring including a flow-directed pulmonary artery catheter. During surgery, intraabdominal pressure was maintained automatically at 14 mm Hg by a CO2 insufflator, and minute ventilation was controlled and adjusted to avoid hypercapnia. Hemodynamics were measured before anesthesia, after the induction of anesthesia, after tilting into 10 degrees head-up position, 5 min, 15 min, and 30 min after peritoneal insufflation, and 30 min after exsufflation. Induction of anesthesia decreased significantly mean arterial pressure and cardiac index (CI). Tilting the patient to the head-up position reduced cardiac preload and caused further reduction of CI. Peritoneal insufflation resulted in a significant increase (+/- 35%) of mean arterial pressure, a significant reduction (+/- 20%) of CI, and a significant increase of systemic (+/- 65%) and pulmonary (+/- 90%) vascular resistances. The combined effect of anesthesia, head-up tilt, and peritoneal insufflation produced a 50% decrease in CI. Administration of increasing concentrations of isoflurane, via its vasodilatory activity, may have partially blunted these hemodynamic changes. These results demonstrate that laparoscopy for cholecystectomy in head-up position results in significant hemodynamic changes in healthy patients, particularly at the induction of pneumoperitoneum.

OBJECTIVES: We investigated endocrine correlates of the hemodynamic changes induced by carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum (PNO). We then studied whether clonidine might modulate the hemodynamic changes induced by PNO by reducing release of catecholamines and vasopressin. BACKGROUND: Both mechanical and neurohumoral factors contribute to the hemodynamic changes induced by carbon dioxide PNO. Several mediators have been proposed, but no study has correlated hemodynamic changes with changes in levels of these potential mediators. METHODS: We conducted two studies, each including 20 healthy patients scheduled for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In the first study serial measurements of hemodynamics (thermodilution technique) were done during laparoscopy and after exsufflation. Plasma concentrations of cortisol, catecholamines, vasopressin, renin, endothelin and prostaglandins were measured at the same time points. In the second study patients were randomly allocated to receive 8 microg/kg clonidine infused over 1 h or placebo before PNO. Hemodynamics and plasma levels of cortisol, catecholamines and vasopressin were measured during PNO and after exsufflation. RESULTS: Peritoneal insufflation resulted in a significant reduction of cardiac output (18+/-4%) and increases in mean arterial pressure (39+/-8%) and systemic (70+/-12%) and pulmonary (98+/-18%) vascular resistances. Laparoscopy resulted in progressive and significant increases in plasma concentrations of cortisol, epinephrine, norepinephrine and renin. Vasopressin plasma concentrations markedly increased immediately after the beginning of PNO (before PNO 6+/-4 pg/ml; during PNO 129+/-42 pg/ml; p < 0.05). The profile of vasopressin release paralleled the time course of changes in systemic vascular resistance. Prostaglandins and endothelin did not change significantly. Clonidine significantly reduced mean arterial pressure, heart rate and the increase in systemic vascular resistance. Clonidine also significantly reduced catecholamine concentrations but did not alter vasopressin and cortisol plasma concentrations. CONCLUSIONS: Vasopressin and catecholamines probably mediate the increase in systemic vascular resistance observed during PNO. Clonidine before PNO reduces catecholamine release and attenuates hemodynamic changes during laparoscopy. [less ▲]
