Docetaxel is a taxane, which is a class of chemotherapy agent used in the treatment of multiple malignancies. It is known to have gastrointestinal side effects which can range from mild symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea to more severe complications such as neutropenic enterocolitis. In the current literature, taxanes have not been described to cause upper gastrointestinal bleeding and melena. Here, we present a case of a 54-year-old woman with breast cancer who developed dizziness, fatigue, and melena after receiving chemotherapy. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed diffuse gastric erosions as well as ulceration and lin...

AbstractIntroductionThe effect of valve type on outcomes in transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TF-TAVR) has recently been subject of debate. We investigate outcomes of patients treated with balloon-expanding (BE) vs. self-expanding (SE) valves in in a cohort of all these procedures performed in Germany in 2018.MethodsAll patients receiving TF-TAVR with either BE (N = 9,882) or SE (N = 7,413) valves in Germany in 2018 were identified. In-hospital outcomes were analyzed for the endpoints in-hospital mortality, major bleeding, stroke, acute kidney injury, postoperative delirium, p...

In this study, we examined patients' access to hemophilia A (HemA) treatments across a set of large commercial health plans.Objective: To examine variation in health plans' coverage policies for HemA treatments.Methods: We reviewed HemA treatment coverage policies (current as of August 2019) issued by 17 commercial health plans primarily using the Tufts Medical Center Specialty Drug Evidence and Coverage Database. We categorized policies as: covered without conditions (coverage consistent with the FDA label); covered with conditions (conditions on coverage beyond the FDA label); broader coverage (coverage for a broader pat...
