Two weeks to bowel cancer?

There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in your gut, antibiotics kill off good bacteria along with the bad. When that happens, your immune system gets weak. Your risk of obesity and heart disease goes up. So do rates of allergies, asthma, autism and autoimmune diseases.1 And now shocking new research says antibiotics can even spike your risk of bowel cancer. And it can happen in just two weeks! A study in the journal Gut looked at data from 16,000 women over 60 years old. They were part of the famous Nurses Health Study.2  Results showed that taking antibiotics increased their risk of getting adenomas or polyps. These are growths on the lining of the bowel that can become cancerous. Women who took antibiotics in their 20s and 30s for as little as 15 days to two months increased their risk by up to 36%. It was worse for those who took these drugs in their 40s and 50s for longer periods of time....

This study sought to evaluate the clinical benefit of valvular surgery in patients with concomitant CKD.We evaluated 349 patients with significant VHD who were referred for surgery. Patients were divided into those with CKD stage ≥ 3 (CKD patients; n = 88) and those with CKD stage 1 or 2 (no CKD patients; n = 261). 63 patients did not receive surgery, of which 20 patients had CKD and 43 had no CKD. Mortality and change in eGFR were assessed after a median follow-up of 21 months.In the whole study population, 25% of the patients had CKD and these patients had higher mortality than those with no CKD. The annual mortality ...

Conclusion: The prevalence of breakfast skipping was low, and this is consistent with the findings of other studies in the literature. Mental health was significantly associated with breakfast consumption. In order to increase the rate of breakfast consumption, interventions should be developed for specific target groups.

Conclusion: TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is an appropriate way to improve the patient’s postoperative physical appearance. The results of this study indicated that TRAM flap reconstruction after mastectomy is safe, with an acceptably low number of complications and can be performed by a single surgeon in conjunction with a mastectomy procedure; furthermore, the majority of patients were satisfied with their reconstructed breast.

Conclusion: Most of the results of lower abdominal ultrasound in the patients sent for whole abdominal ultrasound were negative, and the majority of the positive findings were benign conditions requiring no further management. More positive results, especially findings suggestive or suspicious of cancers, were seen in cases with positive clinical data. Routine use of whole abdominal ultrasound does not appear to be very helpful, especially in patients who have no symptoms in the lower abdomen. PMID: 29927560 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lokejareonlarb S, Chamalerk P Abstract Background: Latissimus Dorsi flap (LD flap) has been used since the eighteenth century to cover large chest wall defects after total mastectomy and is thought to be superior to split thickness skin graft in terms of both cosmetic results and functionality. The outcomes and complications resulting from the use of LD flap reconstruction for large breast cancer are not well documented in Thailand. Objective: To describe a technique using the Latissimus Dorsi musculocutaneous flap for breast reconstruction. The outcomes, complications and length of stay after operatio...

Conclusion: Women with OC are significantly more associated with hypercoagulable state than those with benign gynecologic diseases. Plasma fibrinogen level was the significant predictive factor for OC, and only 1 post-operative VTE event occurred. PMID: 29927556 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: The results showed that the prevalence of chronic HBV infection in SLE patients was lower than in the general population. Even though they had received high doses of corticosteroid and immunosuppressive agents, no HBV reactivation was found in these SLE patients with chronic HBV infection.
