ENDOTRACHEAL tube (ETT) cuff hyperinflation was incidentally diagnosed in a 5-yr-old maintained on N2O-free general anesthesia (Microcuff, 4.5 mm, inflated with 1.8 ml of air) during cardiac magnetic resonance imaging preceding catheterization. Magnetic resonance angiograms reformatted in coronal (image A) and sagittal (image B) planes of the trachea demonstrate pronounced tracheal distention (thin arrow) at the ETT cuff site, with a thinner contrast-enhanced layer of the tracheal wall (thick arrow), suggesting a degree of mucosal compression. Subsequent cuff manometer measurement demonstrated a pressure of ...

The new combination of venetoclax and rituximab was superior to the standard-of-care combination of bendamustine and rituximab in the treatment of relapsed/refractory CLL.Medscape Medical News
Roche today announced the first results from the pivotal phase III MURANO study evaluating Venclexta ™/Venclyxto™ (venetoclax) plus MabThera®/Rituxan® (rituximab) compared to bendamustine plus MabThera®/Rituxan® (BR) for the treatment of people with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The results showed that a fixed duration of treatment with Venclexta/Venclyxto plus MabThera/Rituxan significantly reduced the risk of disease progression or death (progression-free survival; PFS, as assessed by investigator) by 83% compared with BR (HR=0.17; 95% CI 0.11-0.25; p
This study aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis on the association between vitamin D levels and AA.

ABSTRACT The Frenchman Gustave Flaubert, the Russian Fyodor Dostoevsky and the Brazilian Machado de Assis are known for their immeasurable contributions to literature. However, what most people do not know is that all three authors suffered from epilepsy and were affected by their neurological condition in different ways. We offer a short description of how epilepsy influenced their lives, how they dealt with it and how their neurological condition was present in their novels and correspondence. Their lives are excellent examples of how intimately neurology can be entwined in art and history, and provide an important persp...
Conclusions Primary percutaneous coronary intervention requiring predilation was characterized by a higher prevalence of clinical comorbidities and by angiographic and technical complexity of the procedures. Predilation is an independent predictor of hospital mortality in this clinical setting.
Conclusions Although the clinical outcomes associated with the PCI were favorable to smokers, the multivariate analysis did not show a protective effect of smoking. Such results are due to differences in clinical and angiographic characteristics between smokers and non‐smokers.
