Researchers found more complications, such as bleeding, for the pain relievers ibuprofen and naproxen
CONCLUSION: SSEH is a rare cause of paraplegia. Early radiological diagnosis is crucial for timely neurosurgical management and saving patient from permanent neurological deficit or a fatal outcome. PMID: 29047318 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: For asymptomatic patients, specific medical treatment for primary disease can be maintained until the capsule spontaneously passes or symptoms appear. For patients with slight abdominal pain, DBE can be performed. For patients with intestinal obstruction or overt small bowel bleeding, early surgical consultation should be considered.

CONCLUSIONS: Extensive care should be taken to avoid ulcerative intestinal hemorrhage to elderly patients receiving multiple doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug patch for multiple days. PMID: 29043859 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Careful histopathological examination of the surgical specimen and diligent monitoring of β-human chorionic gonadotropin to zero is crucial to prevent potentially missing this very malignant, but highly curable disease. Early systemic metastases are common and presentation can include bleeding from vaginal metastases. PMID: 29032067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Gastroenterologists, as specialists, are called upon by other doctors to address digestive issues in their patients. For example, our daily office schedule is filled with patients sent by primary care physicians who want our advice or our technical testing skills to evaluate individuals with abdominal pain, bowel issues, heartburn, rectal bleeding and various other symptoms. The same process occurs when we are called to see hospital patients. If a hospital admitting physician, who is usually a hospitalist, wants an opinion or a test that is beyond his knowledge level, then we are called in to assist. The highest quality re...
We present a case of 73-year old male, who came to the emergency service with symptoms of abdominal distension, pain lasting 48 hours along with months of diarrhoea. CT scan and an abdominal CT angiography showed a massive left-sided congestive colitis due to idiopathic inferior mesenteric arteriovenous malformation. In our case, the decision was to carry out the treatment in two stages. Embolisation was performed in the first stage in order to decrease the blood flow and the risk of intraoperative bleeding, followed by resective surgery of the affected colon.

Conclusion Barbed sutures ease the repair of uterine scar defects and can provide ideal reapproximation of thick myometrial tissue. Laparoscopic treatment of a scar pregnancy and isthmocele repair are effective and safe modes of treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: The AbsorbaSeal™ is safe and simple to use for vascular closure after interventional vascular procedures with favorable outcomes including a short TTH, minimal procedural blood loss, low postoperative pain scores, and no perioperative complications or adverse effects. Histologic evaluation reveals rapid device absorption and little scar formation both short- and long-term. A direct study of complement activation supports that AbsorbaSeal™ evokes a minimal inflammatory response that is significantly less than Angioseal. PMID: 29020709 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The objective of the present study was to evaluate clinically the saphenous tissue repair after LED therapy. Forty subjects of both genders who underwent CABG with extracorporeal circulation were randomly di vided into two groups: the placebo (PG) and experimental (EG). The experimental group underwent low-intensity LED therapy (λ 640 ± 20 nm, 6 J/cm2) on saphenectomy. The tissue repair was analyzed by digital photogrammetry on the first and fifth postoperative day. The border closure was blindly evaluated by three researchers. The hematoma and hyperemia area was quantitatively analyzed u...
