CONCLUSIONS: Because of ahigh risk of interactions and related adverse effects, especially in older patients, each decision regarding combination of a particular antidepressant with a medication used in treatment of cardiovascular disorders should be preceded by a detailed analysis of safety and risk-benefit ratio, and also be associated with the search for the safest, alternative combinations of the above-mentioned medications.

We describe an unusual case of axillary vein thrombosis after extensive muscular and fibrillar rupture of the long tendon of the right biceps brachii in a 43-year-old patient after an effort. The difficult diagnosis of this condition requires high suspicion and early treatment.ResumenDescribimos un caso inusual de trombosis en la vena axilar tras una rotura fibrilar extensa, muscular y parcial del tendón largo del bíceps braquial derecho, en un paciente de 43 años tras la realización de un sobreesfuerzo. Esta afección supone un difícil diagnóstico, por lo que requiere una al...

Sheppard, Mark Lee, Magdalena Hagleitner, Martin Hermann, Reinhard Würzner, Cornelia Lass-Flörl, Cornelia SpethAbstractPlatelets are meanwhile recognized as versatile elements within the immune system and appear to play a key role in the innate immune response to pathogens including fungi. Previous experiments revealed platelet activation by direct contact with the hyphal-associated polysaccharide galactosaminogalactan (GAG). Since secreted fungal products may also be releva...

Authors: Bharadwaj AS, Swamy PM, Mamas MA Abstract Introduction: There are numerous shared risk factors in the etiopathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD) and cancer both at the epidemiologic and molecular level. Additionally, the different modalities of treatment of cancer such as radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormonal therapies further increase the risk of CAD and acute coronary syndrome. Most large database analysis and single center experiences have shown that cancer patients undergoing PCI are at an increased risk of in-hospital mortality, bleeding repeat revascularization.Areas covered: In ...

Authors: Vögtle T, Baig AA, Volz J, Duchow TB, Pleines I, Dütting S, Nitschke L, Watson SP, Nieswandt B Abstract Platelets are essential for normal hemostasis; however, pathological conditions can also trigger unwanted platelet activation precipitating thrombosis and ischemic damage of vital organs such as the heart or brain. Glycoprotein (GP)VI- and C-type lectin-like receptor 2 (CLEC-2)-mediated (hem)immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif (ITAM) signaling represents a major pathway for platelet activation. The two members of the Growth-factor receptor-bound protein 2 (Grb2) family of adapter pro...

TelladoAbstractIntroductionMacrovascular invasion (MVI) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a very poor prognostic factor. Treatment in such cases is still a matter of debate. The goal of this study is to assess short- and long-term results of liver resection and thrombectomy in a series of patients with HCC and MVI.MethodsRetrospective cohort study of patients who und...

ConclusionsMultiple myeloma has myriad presentations. Gastrointestinal involvement, although rare, can manifest as small bowel obstruction for which early recognition and appropriate surgical management are key to improving outcome. Intussusception is the most common mechanism of obstruction from extramedullary plasmacytoma causing small bowel obstruction and this has been seen in five of six case reports, including this case. It is important to recognize and consider the risks of immunosuppression, venous thromboembolism, and malnutrition in the surgical management of gastrointestinal complications of multiple myeloma.

Conclusion:This is the first report on the management of MM patients in UAE. With a median follow-up of 216 days (range 3 to 839 days) the response rate to induction therapy was 72% (CR+ VGPR). We are unable to report progression free survival due to short follow-up. This response rate of 72% (VGPR or better) is less than the reported in the literature. This may partly be due to lack of patient data regarding induction therapy elsewhere, the use of double over triplet regimens and the absence of autoSCT facilities. Outcome measurement is a difficult task due to tendency of local citizens to travel outside UAE for treatment...

l C Abstract Post-thrombotic syndrome is common after iliofemoral vein thrombosis. Conservative therapy, mainly limited to compression and anticoagulation therapy, might not be sufficient in controlling symptoms. Interventional recanalization of the chronically occluded iliac veins is an evolving method, promising rapid relief of symptoms. Here, we present two cases of complex interventions in one patient with preceding pelvic radiotherapy due to a plasmacytoma and in another patient in whom a cava wedge resection had been performed because of cystic echinococcosis in the liver.
