We describe the case of a patient with myelofibrosis (MF)-associated PH who developed left ventricular dysfunction after five years of treatment with the JAK 1/2 inhibitor, ruxolitinib. This is the first report with histopathological findings that demonstrate possible contradictory effects of a JAK 1/2 inhibitor: improvement of MF-associated PH and cardiotoxicity.

In this study of the National Trauma Data Bank Data set (2007–2009 and 2010–2016), these rates were reexamined and risk factors associated with these complications were assessed. Data quality is improved in the later data set; the incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism was 0.28% and 0.21%, respectively, in the 2010–2016 data. Prophylaxis, male gender, treatment in a university hospital, open reduction, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hypertension were notable significant risk factors for pulmonary embolism. For deep venous thrombosis, male gender, bleeding disorder, angina, ...

METHODS: MarketScan® administrative health care claims data from 2008 to 2014 among patients with HF were used. The date of first CRT implantation served as the index date. Adherence to guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) classes were compared during pre- and post-index periods using proportion of days covered (PDC). Com...

Authors: Chang Z, Zhang P, Zhang M, Jun F, Hu Z, Yang J, Wu Y, Zhou R Abstract Abnormal pulmonary arterial vascular smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) proliferation is critical pathological feature of pulmonary vascular remodeling that acts as driving force in the initiation and development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), ultimately leading to pulmonary hypertension. Aloperine is a main active alkaloid extracted from the traditional Chinese herbal Sophora alopecuroides and possesses outstanding antioxidation and anti-inflammatory effects. Our group found Aloperine has protective effects on monocroline-induced p...

Conclusion: PPHH may be an underdiagnosed complication in children undergoing surgery for oesophageal atresia. These children must be monitored closely for symptoms of hypoglycaemia and if there are concerns must be screened for possible PPHH. Our cases demonstrate that continuous feeding regimens might be the only therapeutic option, until PPHH gradually lessens in intensity over time.Horm Res Paediatr
