Traditional Long-Term Central Venous Catheters Versus Transhepatic Venous Catheters in Infants and Young Children

Conclusions: Without compromising future central venous access sites, transhepatic venous lines had superior duration of service without increased thrombosis, thrombolytic use, or insertion site complications relative to central venous lines. Transhepatic venous catheters had a higher infection rate, and further investigation into the etiology is warranted.

Conclusions: Our study suggested that incident CHD was positively associated with plasma levels of titanium and arsenic, and inversely associated with selenium. Additional research is needed to confirm these findings in other populations. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1521 Received: 22 December 2016 Revised: 17 September 2017 Accepted: 19 September 2017 Published: 19 October 2017 Address correspondence to T.

In this study, we have shown that the lipid chaperones FABP4/FABP5 are critical intermediate factors in the deterioration of metabolic systems during aging. Consistent with their roles in chronic inflammation and insulin resistance in young prediabetic mice, we found that FABPs promote the deterioration of glucose homeostasis; metabolic tissue pathologies, particularly in white and brown adipose tissue and liver; and local and systemic inflammation associated with aging. A systematic approach, including lipidomics and pathway-focused transcript analysis, revealed that calorie restriction (CR) and Fabp4/5 deficiency result ...

AbstractCoronary heart disease (CHD) and diabetes mellitus (DM) have high reactivity of platelets and an increased risk of thrombosis. Platelet glycosylation is closely related to platelet function and survival. However, the alteration of platelet glycosylation in CHD and T2DM still remains unknown. Platelet samples were obtained from 55 healthy controls and 102 patients, including 33 CHD, 30 T2DM and 39 CHD complicated with T2DM (CHD  + T2DM). Platelet glycosylation was detected using eight-lectin based assay by flow cytometry. Platelet activation markers, such as CD62P (P-Selectin) and activated integrin GP...

ConclusionsPediatric patients undergoing surgical repair of congenital heart disease are exposed to high levels of VWF with diminished or minimal change to ADAMTS‐13 in the immediate postoperative period. Elevated preoperative VWF activity is associated with postoperative thrombosis in pediatric CHD.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Authors: Batul SA, Gopinathannair R Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) are growing cardiovascular disease epidemics worldwide. There has been an exponential increase in the prevalence of AF and HF correlating with an increased burden of cardiac risk factors and improved survival rates in patients with structural heart disease. AF is associated with adverse prognostic outcomes in HF and is most evident in mild-to-moderate left ventricular (LV) dysfunction where the loss of "atrial kick" translates into poorer quality of life and increased mortality. In the absence of underlying struct...

Patient Presentation A 5-month-old male came to clinic for his health supervision visit and followup from his neonatal intensive care stay. He was born prematurely at 28 weeks gestation and his stay was complicated by a right sided Grade III intraventricular hemorrhage, a left-sided Grade IV intraventricular hemorrhage, neonatal seizures, respiratory distress and bronchopulmonary dysplasia, retinopathy of prematurity, acute kidney injury that had resolved, possible necrotizing enterocolitis incidents x 2, and herpes simplex encephalitis. He was on home oxygen, a nasogastric feeding tube because of aspiration risk and mult...

Authors: Li H, Sun K, Zhao R, Hu J, Hao Z, Wang F, Lu Y, Liu F, Zhang Y Abstract Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. CHD is characterized by formation of arterial plaques which are mainly comprised of lipids, calcium and inflammatory cells. These plaques narrow the lumen of coronary arteries leading to episodic or persistent angina. Rupture of these plaques leads to the formation of thrombus, which as a result of cessation of blood flow, causes myocardial infarct and death. CHD is exacerbated by risk factors including obesity, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. Diagnosis ...
