Authors: Tano GD, Caretta G, Maria R, Bettari L, Parolini M, Testa S, Pirelli S Abstract AIM: Galectin-3 (Gal-3), a biomarker of inflammation, tissue repair and fibrogenesis, is associated to left ventricular remodeling after ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI), but its relation with long-term outcomes is unclear. METHODS: In 103 consecutive patients with a first anterior STEMI treated by primary angioplasty, we assayed Gal-3 and NT-proBNP. RESULTS: Age was 65 (56-76) years, 28% were women. During 18 ± 13 months, 20 patients (19.4%) died or were admitted for heart ...

After years of investigation of McKesson Corp., led by a Denver-based Drug Enforcement Administration team, over the pharmaceutical giant's distribution of powerful opioid drugs in Colorado and elsewhere, DEA agents say they thought they had gathered enough evidence to warrant criminal charges, fines of more than $1 billion and blocking distribution of opioid pain pills from McKesson warehouses in Aurora and elsewhere. The DEA probe examined whether San Francisco-based McKesson (NYSE: MCK) failed…

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the lack of randomized studies, regardless of individual patient considerations, studies would support continuation of acetylsalicylic acid, which is recommended by cardiologists, in patients with intermediate/ high risk of coronary thrombosis. In contrast, multiple studies found that bridging with light weight molecular weight heparin can potentially lead to more bleeding than continuation of the anticoagulant(s) and antiplatelet therapy, and caution with bridging is advised. All urologists should familiarize themselves with emerging guidelines and recommendations, and always be prepared to discuss sp...

Authors: Tucci M, Leone G, Buttigliero C, Zichi C, DI Stefano RF, Pignataro D, Vignani F, Scagliotti GV, DI Maio M Abstract Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the mainstay of treatment of patients with relapsed or metastatic hormone-sensitive prostatic carcinoma. The dramatic reduction of serum testosterone levels induced by ADT produces multiple side effects as vasomotor flushing, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, impairment of cognitive function, reduced quality of sleep, gynecomastia and anemia, that are able to decrease health-related quality of life (QoL). In addition, hormonal therapy can interfere with bone me...

CONCLUSIONS: NIRF-guidance was successfully applied during laparoscopic PN, offering the surgeon additional information about kidney anatomy and perfusion. Our experience demonstrated the potential benefits of the new technology. The clinically relevance of selective clamping on functional outcomes is still a matter of debate.

Authors: Aoun F, Albisinni S, Zanaty M, Hassan T, Janetschek G, van Velthoven R Abstract INTRODUCTION: To date, bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) represents the most accurate and reliable staging procedure for the detection of lymph node invasion in prostate cancer and bladder cancer. However, the procedure is not devoid of complications. In this field, Indocyanine green fluorescence-guided sentinel lymph node (SLN) identification is an emerging and promising technique, as accurate staging of urologic cancer could be enhanced by a thorough evaluation of the sentinel lymph nodes. Aim of the present revie...
