Conclusion: Severe acute pancreatitis during pregnancy leads to a high rate of fetal mortality.Gestational trimester, delayed diagnosis, HTG, MOF, gestational diabetes mellitus, and preeclampsia are predictors of fetal loss. Therefore, close monitoring is essential for pregnancies complicated with HTG, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. PMID: 32249649 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: The inflammatory burden possibly plays a less important role in the development of cardiovascular disease in inflammatory bowel disease patients but future larger prospective studies are needed.

Objectives: We have previously shown that patterns of splenic arterial enhancement on computed tomography scan change following liver transplantation. We suggested that this is related to changes in portal venous pressure. The aim of this study was to see if similar patterns occur in patients with and without portal hypertension and in patients before and after portal systemic shunts (transjugular portosystemic shunts). Methods: We evaluated contrast enhanced computed tomography scans in patients being evaluated for liver disease and compared those from patients with and without portal hypertension. In addition we eva...

Conclusion: For the treatment of GVs, the new technique BAATO is feasible, safe and effective, and it may be a more convenient and economical method than conventional BRTO. In addition, the combination of BAATO and TIPS may play a positive role in achieving hemostasis and improving the complications of portal hypertension such as ascites and PVT.

Purpose of review Hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes and related metabolic disorders increase the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Despite significant progress in the identification of key mechanisms and genetic polymorphisms linked to various CVDs, the rates of CVDs continue to escalate, underscoring the need to evaluate additional mechanisms for more effective therapies. Environment and lifestyle changes can alter epigenetic mechanisms mediated by histone modifications and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) which play important roles in gene regulation. The review summarizes recent findings on the role of epigenet...

Purpose of review Genetic variance on blood pressure was shown about 100 years ago; a Mendelian inheritance was initially presumed. Platt and Pickering conducted a lively debate, whether blood pressure was inherited in a Mendelian fashion or whether the condition was polygenic. Genetic-hypertension research has appropriately followed both pathways. Recent findings Genome-wide association studies, Pickering model, have identified more than 500 blood-pressure loci, the targets of which are waiting to be evaluated. Then, come the ‘dark-horses’ of hypertension, namely ‘secondary’ causes. These cond...

The hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis acts to release cortisol into the blood stream, as cortisol calls the body into action to combat stress. When high amounts of cortisol interact with the hypothalamus, the HPA axis will slow down its activity. The amygdala detects stress, while the prefrontal cortex regulates our reactions to stress.
