Authors: Bayoumi AB, Ikizgul O, Karaali CN, Bozkurt S, Konya D, Toktas ZO Abstract Antidepressant drugs can be advantageous in treating psychiatric and non-psychiatric illnesses, including spinal disorders. However, spine surgeons remain unfamiliar with the advantages and disadvantages of the use of antidepressant drugs as a part of the medical management of diseases of the spine. Our review article describes a systematic method using the PubMed/Medline database with a specific set of keywords to identify such benefits and drawbacks based on 17 original relevant articles published between January 2000 and February ...

In this study, polydopamine (PDA) coated chitosan/calcium pyrophosphate hybrid microflowers (PDA@CS-CaP) were prepared using a facile approach and evaluated as a hemostatic agent. The surface morphology and elements, chemical groups, porous structure, thermostability, zeta potential, as well as surface wettability were systematically characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), N2 adsorption-desorption, thermogravimetry (TGA) and contact angle apparatus. Due to the synergistic effects of the high hydrophilicity (water contact an...

Publication date: October 2019Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 61Author(s): Fenglin Song, Xiao Zuo, Yimin Zhao, Qing Li, Zezhong Tian, Yan YangAbstractBetanin, a water-soluble nitrogenous pigment, is found to exert various health benefits including anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-hyperglycemic and cardioprotective effects. However, the roles of betanin in platelet function is completely unknown. In the present study we investigated the effects of betanin-enriched red beet extract on human platelet physiology in vitro and explored the underlying mechanism. The results showed that betanin significantly and...

Rare clotting factor (F) deficiency is a deficiency of one or more of coagulation factors other than FVIII, FIX and vonWillebrand (FI, FII, FV, FV + FVIII, FVII, FIX, FX, FXI and FXIII) that cause bleeding disorders and are inherited as autosomal recessive. Descriptive study was conducted in Hemophilia Centre, Khartoum, Sudan. The medical files of pediatric patients presented to the center were reviewed retrospectively. Forty-seven patients (male : female ratio = 1.2 : 1) were included. The majority (93.6%) have parental history of consanguinity and around one third (31.9%) have family history of bleeding d...

We report development of an inhibitor in a child with severe hemophilia B, and subsequent immune tolerance induction using an extended desensitization protocol with the addition of immunosuppression. This case highlights successful management of a rare complication in a rare bleeding disorder and the need for additional investigation into this infrequent and clinically challenging occurrence.

We present six patients with primary ITP resistant to corticosteroids and intravenous immunoglobulins, who received TPO-RA in the persistent phase and then underwent splenectomy in the chronic phase. Eltrombopag was administered as a second-line therapy in four patients, whereas two patients received romiplostim. Five out of six patients rapidly reached response or complete response (four and one, respectively) and steroid suspension. In one case, remission was obtained with steroid and TPO-RA. No significant side effects were reported. After splenectomy, complete response and response was reached in four and two patients,...

We presented an asymptomatic case with isolated activated partial thromboplastin time prolongation. After excluding coagulation factor deficiency and lupus anticoagulant, the patient was diagnosed with plasma prekallikrein (PPK) deficiency. We reviewed the literature regarding effects of PPK deficiency which could have both antithrombotic and prothrombotic effects. At the moment, research supports that PPK deficiency in healthy adults rarely causes bleeding as it is not a major contributor of hemastasis; whereas in adults with multiple comorbidities or with predominant systemic inflammation, effects of PPK deficiency remai...
