Written by Pendell MeyersA man in his late 40s with several ACS risk factors presented with a chief complaint of chest pain.  Several hours prior to presentation, while driving his truck, he started experiencing new central chest pain, without radiation, aggravating/alleviating factors, or other associated symptoms. On review of systems the patient reported back pain for approximately 1 week which he was treating with NSAIDs with minimal relief. On exam the patient was well appearing, with normal vitals signs other than BP 155/82, no murmurs or rubs, normal pulses, no reproducible chest pain.Here is his triage ECG:Wha...

This article presents a case report that illustrates how evasive the diagnosis of pericardial effusion can be. The early symptoms of pericardial effusion resemble common viral conditions that can easily be overlooked. Subtle presenting symptoms and the importance of urgent multidisciplinary collaboration and emergent referral for the child with pericarditis are summarized.

This is a previously healthy male teenager who was awoken by chest pain.  He was seen at another hospital and found to have a slightly elevated troponin, then underwent a CT pulmonary angiogram (PE) protocol which revealed a right sided pneumonia.  He was treated with Ceftriaxone and azithromycin.p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; background-color: #fefefe}The pain is described as located in the midsternal area, radiating to the right arm, described as 8-9/10 and worse with deep inspirations.  He endorsed cough, fever, and body aches in the previous day...

The author read with great interest the article by Helwani et al. on assessment of hepatic venous Doppler tracings in constrictive pericarditis.1 After a review of constrictive pericarditis and its management, the authors describe the differences between preoperative and intraoperative echocardiographic analysis of the hepatic venous waveforms in various stages of the perioperative period. This case description in particular has very interesting clinical implications given the history of atrial fibrillation, and hence a lack of prominent A wave reversal during expiration in spontaneous, non-positive pressure ventilation (a...

AbstractABO blood group has been associated with various disease phenotypes. However, ABO blood group to influence patients in risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) and arterial thromboembolic events (ATEs) remains controversial after evaluation in several reports. To fully assess effects of ABO blood group on VTEs and ATEs, we conducted a cross-sectional study and investigated the interaction between blood group and age, and between blood group and sex on the prevalence of VTEs and ATEs. In addition, the effect of blood group on ATEs in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) was observed. Detailed information of 783...

Abstract As a transcriptional regulator of the classical binary regulatory system, PhoP plays an important role in the life activities of avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC). In previous experiments, we found that the absence of phoP affects APEC biofilm formation and pathogenicity. To further explore the molecular mechanism of phoP regulation of these phenomena, the differentially expressed gene tolC was screened based on phoP-derived transcriptional data, and the specific sequence identity of the PhoP binding sequence was predicted by bioinformatics and verified by electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA...

Baca et  al. urge emergency physicians to be aware of the distinction between amyloid cardiomyopathy and acute on chronic systolic heart failure, because treatment of amyloid cardiomyopathy includes loop diuretics, to the exclusion of beta-blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, and digoxin (1). I would add that amyloid cardiomyopathy should also be distinguished from constrictive pericarditis (CP) because CP requires treatment by pericardiectomy, almost to the total exclusion of diuretic therapy, especially if aggressive diuretic therapy is pursued in the absenc e of a suspicion for CP.
