We characterized the biologic background of prothrombotic platelet function in the setting of durable left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) evaluating the role of different antithrombotic regimens. Platelet-mediated thrombin generation was quantified using the Platelet Activity State (PAS) Assay and the Thrombin Generation Test (TGT) in 78 patients implanted with the HeartMate II (n = 10, 13%), the HeartMate 3 (HM3) (n = 30, 38%), or the HVAD (n = 38, 49%) and managed with oral anticoagulation plus aspirin (n = 46, 59%) or anticoagulation alone (n = 32, 41%). Coagulation parameters (platelet count, International Normaliz...

AbstractObjectivesCentral or peripheral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (va ECMO) is widely used in postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCS). Available data suggest controversial results for both types. Our aim was to investigate PCS patients treated with either peripheral (pECMO) or central ECMO (cECMO) concerning their outcome.MethodsBetween April 2006 and October 2016, 156 consecutive patients with va ECMO therapy due to PCS were identified and included in this retrospective analysis. Patients were divided into cECMO and pECMO groups. Statistical analysis of risk factors concerning 30 ‐day mortality of ...

We report a case of 23-year-old woman with signs of malocclusion, including pectus excavatum, wrist sign, and thumb sign for Marfan syndrome (MFS) underwent peripheral facial palsy after orthognathic surgery with mandibular advancement. Because cardiovascular, thoracic, and ocular abnormalities were absent, she was suspected of having MFS but not definitively diagnosed. On the other hand, she was diagnosed with a maxillary protrusion with mandibular retrognathism. After presurgical orthodontic treatment, we performed Le Fort I osteotomy and 8 mm advancement by bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy. Because the peri...

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines. When asked about the cause of autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and other common childhood diseases and illness, the majority of health care providers advise patients that the causes are unknown. Doctors, including most integrative physicians, fail to make the connection to vaccines. It takes one moment to permanently damage the health of an adult or child, but t...

Conclusions For petroclival meningiomas extending into the middle fossa, the endoscopic-assisted PIPA approach is safe and straightforward. Familiarity with the retrosigmoid route, the absence of temporal lobe retraction, and early control of the cranial nerves, vessels and brainstem are the principal advantages of the PIPA approach; however, careful patient selection regarding the tumor extension is fundamental to obtaining optimal outcomes.

Three years and 10months earlier he had undergone gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) at the referring hospital for an 18mm right vestibular schwannoma. Slight tumor enlargement had been observed on MRI performed at the referring hospital 3years after the GKRS. On close follow-up after another 6months an ...
