Heme-Nitrosylated Hemoglobin and Oxidative Stress in Women Consuming Combined Contraceptives. Clinical Application of the EPR Spectroscopy.
CONCLUSION: This cross-sectional cohort study demonstrates that a decrease of HbNO measured by quantitative EPR in human venous erythrocytes is correlated with the development of endothelial dysfunction under CPs consumption, in parallel with increased vascular oxidative stress.

Authors: Burnham K, Reinert JP Abstract INTRODUCTION: The exact risk of developing a thromboembolic event (TEE) while using complement 1 esterase inhibitors (C1-INH) is currently undetermined for patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE). This systematic review aimed to define the potential risk of TEEs from these agents. AREAS COVERED: This evaluation covers publications examining or mentioning the risk of TEEs in association with C1-INHs. A systematic literature search was conducted utilizing PubMed, Scopus, and ProQuest. This review utilized search results through January 2020 and followed the PRISMA recomme...

Infection may be an acute precipitant of cardiovascular events. However, the relationships between different types of infection and cardiovascular events are less known. Our objective was to determine if exposure to infections of different organ systems in different time periods increases risk of myocardial infarction or venous thromboembolism.
AbstractThe predictive value of and the influencing factors associated with early neurological improvement (ENI) among patients with acute basilar artery occlusion (BAO) have not been well studied. The present study aimed to evaluate whether ENI predicted a better functional outcome and to identify the influencing factors of ENI. We performed a prospective observational analysis among 187 patients with acute BAO who underwent endovascular treatment (EVT) in Beijing Tiantan Hospital from January 2012 to July 2018. ENI was defined as having a drop on the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) by 8 or more scores ...
ConclusionCurrently no consensus regarding the prevention of VTE in pediatric trauma exists. Prospective application of PTS/EAST guidelines has been limited, likely due to poor quality of evidence and a reliance on post-injury metrics. Results of this survey suggest that further investigation is needed to more clearly define the risk of VTE in children, evaluate, and prospectively validate alternative scoring systems for VTE prevention in injured children.Level of evidenceN/A —Survey.
