New World's old disease: cardiac hydatid disease and surgical principles.

CONCLUSION: Although cardiac hydatid disease is rare, its prevalence seems to have increased in the last decade. Any patient with suspected cardiac symptoms suggesting mass lesions should be considered for a differential diagnosis of cardiac hydatid disease, especially in developing countries. Definitive treatment is removal of the cyst, combined with medical therapy. PMID: 28218769 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Dietrich CF, Douira-Khomsi W, Gharbi H, Sharma M, Cui XW, Sparchez Z, Richter J, Kabaalio─člu A, Atkinson NSS, Schreiber-Dietrich D, Yi D Abstract Cystic echinococcosis (CE) or hydatidosis (hydatid cysts) is an infection with a wide spectrum of manifestations, from symptomatic infection to fatal disease. Ultrasound (US) allows screening, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment guidance and follow-up of CE under many circumstances. Hydatid cysts are predominantly observed in the liver. Herewith we present a review to demonstrate established and innovative imaging features of CE of the hepatob...

This study evaluated the haematological profile of adult individuals infected with the malaria parasite. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted using archived data of malaria positive cases from January 2017 to March 15, 2019. Data retrieved included subjects' demographics, malaria parasite count, malaria parasite species, and full blood count parameters. A total of 236 malaria positive subjects were included in the study. Results: The study showed that more females were infected with the malaria parasite than males (69.07% and 30.93%, respectively). A total of 87.3% of the study population were infected with...

Abstract Ecosystems are under threat from anthropogenic and natural disturbances, yet little is known about how these disturbances alter mutualistic interactions. Many mutualistic interactions are highly context dependent and dynamic due to "ongoing" partner choice, impeding our understanding of how disturbances might influence mutualistic systems. Previously we showed that in the absence of additional known mechanisms of competitive coexistence, mutualistic fungi can coexist in a system where the plant community associates dynamically with two empirically defined arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal types: a c...

Purpose: The purpose of this integrative review was to assess common warming measures used for prevention of hypothermia during the perioperative period for women having cesarean birth and to determine their efficacy. Methods: A literature search was conducted via electronic databases EBSCO, PUBMED, Academic Search Premier, Google Scholar, and CINAHL using keyword search terms hypothermia, cesarean, and warming. Inclusion criteria were articles written in English and published between 2006 and 2018. Results: Seventeen articles were included in the review, covering three common warming measures; intravenous (IV) flu...

CONCLUSIONS Compared with VCV, PCV-VG mode reduced airway pressure in patients undergoing thoracotomy and also decreased the release of NE and reduced inflammatory response and lung injury. We conclude that PCV-VG mode can protect the lung function of elderly patients undergoing thoracotomy. PMID: 32092047 [PubMed - in process]
