Patient Factors But Not the Use of Novel Anticoagulants or Warfarin Are Associated With Internal Jugular Vein Access-Site Hematoma After Right Heart Catheterization.
CONCLUSION: The incidence of internal jugular vein access-site hematoma is small when using careful access techniques for RHC even with the continued use of novel oral anticoagulants and warfarin. Patient characteristics and co-morbid conditions are related to bleeding complications. PMID: 29207361 [PubMed - in process]
We thank Drs Masao Kobayakawa, Yuki Matsushita, and Hidetaka Okubo1 for their interest and comments on article “Effect of scheduled second-look endoscopy on peptic ulcer bleeding: a prospective randomized multicenter trial.”2 The authors have raised some statistical issues, and we appreciate the opportunity to respond and correct the errors of our study.
We have read the article by Park et al entitled “Effect of scheduled second-look endoscopy on peptic ulcer bleeding: a prospective randomized multicenter trial.”1 We have some questions and comments regarding the statistical analysis and conclusion of the trial.
Subcision is a commonly performed procedure for depressed rolling scars of acne.1 Breaking up the fibrotic strands mechanically with a blade or needle leads to neocollagenosis and hematoma formation, resulting in elevation of the depressed scars. However, the excessive mechanical force often leads to trauma to the surrounding tissue, excessive bleeding, and large hematoma formation and fibrosis.
Abstract It has been suggested that persons with factor XI deficiency can have a normal activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). This notion is based on limited data, especially in children. Because of the central role the aPTT plays in diagnostic algorithms for bleeding disorders, it is important to know if a normal aPTT eliminates the need for factor XI activity testing. Our institutional database contains seven children with factor XI deficiency, of whom four have a normal aPTT. This supports the hypothesis that children with factor XI deficiency can have a normal aPTT. Clinicians may wish to consider this evidence...
Conclusion: Convexity subarachnoid hemorrhage may be related to a wide spectrum of etiologies. In our patients, an increased prevalence of cerebral vein thrombosis was observed. Mortality was low and not related to the bleeding itself.RESUMO A hemorragia subaracn óidea não traumática da convexidade é um subtipo cada vez mais reconhecido de sangramento subaracnóideo. Objetivo: Nosso objetivo foi descrever a etiologia e as características clínicas de uma coorte de pacientes com hemorragia subaracnóidea da convexidade. Métodos: Foram analisados retro spectivamente...
CONCLUSIONS: Tranexamic acid does not appear to decrease blood loss or improve clinical outcomes in patients presenting with lower GI hemorrhage in the context of this trial. see Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A453.
Conclusions The transition to clopidogrel with a dose of 75mg at discharge, without a loading dose, appears to be a possible strategy. Studies with greater statistical power are needed to confirm these findings.
ObjectiveTo assess the spectrum of genetic anomalies in a cohort of children presenting at least one cerebral or spinal pial arteriovenous fistula (AVF), and to describe their clinical characteristics. MethodsFrom 1988 to 2016, all consecutive patients with at least one cerebral or spinal pial AVF were screened for genetic disease. All patients aged
