Signing the divorce papers was probably Charlie’s lowest point.  His wife sitting by his side, occasionally she would swat at the air at some invisible fly buzzing around the room.  There was no fly.  Just the acrid smell of the nursing home, a horrifying mix of sweat, shit, and desperation.  He tried to focus his aged eyes on the legal papers as the tears swirled past his nose and losing traction, fell onto his crusty sweater.  He had no intention of leaving his beloved’s side.  No interest in abandoning his life.  But if he was going to give the level of care neces...

Authors: Atici A, Emet S, Cakmak R, Yuruyen G, Alibeyoglu A, Akarsu M, Arman Y, Kose M, Ozgun E, Ozcan M, Altun O, Onur I, Tukek T Abstract OBJECTIVE: Type 1 cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is an acute renal failure in patients with acute decompensated heart failure with an incidence of 24% to 45%. The aim of our study was to investigate the significance of new renal biomarkers to predict type 1 CRS. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 111 patients with acute decompensated heart failure diagnosed at the Istanbul Medical Faculty Emergency Department between 2014 and 2016, and 24 healthy volunteers. All urine sam...

CONCLUSIONS Lipidomics analysis demonstrated differential change before and after reperfusion, suggesting a potential role of some of these lipids as biomarkers for optimizing the diagnosis of myocardial I/R, as well as for therapeutic targets against myocardial I/R injury.

We use pulmonary interventional procedures for the diagnosis of pulmonary diseases either for benign or malignant lesions. Flexible bronchoscopy with or without radial endobronchial ultrasound, convex-probe endobronchial ultrasound and electromagnetic navigation are procedures performed in centers with experience in diagnostic pulmonary medicine. The method of sedation and ventilation is very important in order to avoid or handle with success complications. Proper respiration during pulmonary (or other interventional) procedures is a key factor. Apart from the proper sedation method we have to choose the proper ventilation...

Authors: Demir Ş, Ede H, Kaplan M, Yavuz F, Yücel C, Kurt İH Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is research relation of serum neopterin level with mortality and morbidity due to systolic HF and also its role in diagnosis of patients with systolic HF. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eighty-one patients with systolic heart failure (HF group) and eighty-one age- and gender-matched healthy subjects (the control group) were enrolled in the study. Echocardiographic examination was performed accordingly. At the beginning of the study, serum B type natriuretic peptide (BNP), neopterin, and high sensitive C-reactive...

CONCLUSION: Mortality after valve replacement for CHD remains high. A probably underestimated cause is late referral for cardiac surgery. We propose a systematic, multidisciplinary approach to all carcinoid syndrome patients. PMID: 29914291 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Martens P, Lambeets S, Lau C, Dupont M, Mullens W Abstract BACKGROUND: Sacubitril/valsartan reduced heart failure (HF)-admissions and cardiovascular mortality in the PARADIGM-HF-trial. However, real-world patients are often frailer and less able to tolerate high doses of sacubitril/valsartan. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of consecutive patients prescribed sacubitril/valsartan in a single tertiary HF-clinic between December 2016 and January 2018. HF-admissions were assessed in a paired fashion, comparing the amount of antecedent HF-episodes with incident HF-episodes after the initiatio...

Authors: Mohanan Nair KK, Gopalakrishnan A, Valaparambil A Abstract A 28-year-old lady with rheumatic heart disease presented with dyspnoea and overt right heart failure and was admitted for stabilization. She had respirophasic desaturation predominantly during inspiration. Trans-oesophageal echocardiography revealed the aetiology of the same and dictated the management strategy.
