This issue was investigated in a series of patients who underwent isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) from the pros...
Conclusions Combined use of fluoroscopy and ultrasound guidance for TJKB yielded adequate tissue samples with fewer passes and a low rate of complications in high-risk patients with cirrhosis.

A red cell distribution width (RDW) blood test can help detect the presence of anemia, along with what could be causing it. The test identifies the size difference between the biggest and smallest red blood cells in a sample. In this article, we look at what to expect when having this test, and when it might be used.
In conclusion, we demonstrated that this 5-peptide vaccine was tolerable, and that FOXM1 and MELK could be promising targets for immunotherapy in patients with cervical cancer.
Anemia is common in patients with celiac disease and a frequent presentation. Guidelines recommend screening iron-deficient patients with anemia for celiac disease. However, the reported prevalence of celiac disease among patients with iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) varies. We performed a systematic review to determine the prevalence of biopsy-verified celiac disease in patients with IDA.
AbstractPrimary graft failure can be a cause of early morbidity and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), as it leads to a high risk of severe infections and bleeding. Splenomegaly is associated with primary graft failure in patients of myelofibrosis, but the association between splenomegaly and outcomes after HSCT in patients with myeloid malignancies has not been previously evaluated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of spleen volume on engraftment kinetics in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). We enrolled 85 patients. The...
We report the extraordinary case of a patient with MDS who developed T‐LGLL, and subsequently the MDS progressed to CMML. The patient then developed diffuse arthropod bite‐like papules and intractable pruritus.
We present a 2-year-old boy with splenomegaly, leukocytosis, thrombocytopenia, anemia, and excess myeloblasts with easily seen Auer rods, and marked dysgranulopoiesis and dyserythropoiesis. Conventional cytogenetic analysis showed a sole abnormality of t(3;5)(q25;q35). Microarray analysis showed a terminal 21 Mb region of copy-neutral loss of heterozygosity on 19q. Disease-related somatic NRAS mutation was detected. This case represents an unusual JMML with Auer rods and marked myelodysplasia. These unusual histopathologic features may be related to the t(3;5)(q25;q35). A t(3;5) with variable breakpoints has been reported ...
