Concerns about fellowship
Congratulations to everyone who matched today! I have some concerns that I know will appear foolish to most, but I'm hoping for some advice to help me sift through everything going through my head right now. I'm just applied and matched into a GI fellowship program. Within the past 3 weeks (since I submitted my ROL), my S.O interviewed for and accepted a fellowship position for stroke at an amazing program. The program I matched at is a good, mid tier program, but is very far away, and... Concerns about fellowship
CONCLUSION: Isolated BAD may cause variable clinical manifestations and the outcome can be favorable. Application of different and advanced imaging studies with serial image follow-up are useful to confirm the diagnosis. PMID: 29468623 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Nutritional status was poor in stroke patients across all stroke severities within weeks. Further longitudinal outcome studies to identify the poor outcome and the evolution of nutritional status are warranted. PMID: 29468620 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: This review may be helpful for researchers, diabetic patient and decision makers in the field of ethnobotanical sciences. These efforts may also provide treatment to everyone and focus on the role of traditional novel medicine plants that have anti-diabetic abilities. PMID: 29473531 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract Disruption of the blood‐brain barrier (BBB) following cerebral ischemia is closely related to the infiltration of peripheral cells into the brain, progression of lesion formation, and clinical exacerbation. However, the mechanism that regulates BBB integrity, especially after permanent ischemia, remains unclear. Here, we present evidence that astrocytic N‐myc downstream‐regulated gene 2 (NDRG2), a differentiation‐ and stress‐associated molecule, may function as a modulator of BBB permeability following ischemic stroke, using a mouse model of permanent cerebral ischemia. Immunohistological analysis showed...
Right heart failure is a potentially devastating complication of mechanical circulatory support, occurring at a rate of 0.49 events per 100 patient-months.1 Pulmonary vasodilators such as phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE5i) have been frequently used to unload the right ventricle in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients, but there is scant evidence to support this practice.2,3 The purpose of this analysis is to provide additional data regarding the safety and efficacy of the PDE5i sildenafil in a real world population of patients supported with LVADs at Washington University in St. Louis. Sildenafil use was not ...
Conclusion An atheromatous change reduced shunt flow via collateral networks at the anterior cervical region. Congenital subclavian steal supported the ischemic stroke. PMID: 29466902 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Participants felt capable of increasing physical activity but fatigue was often perceived as a barrier to physical activity. This needs to be considered when encouraging stroke survivors to be more active. PMID: 29465097 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Hanefeld C, Haschemi A, Lampert T, Trampisch HJ, Mügge A, Miebach J, Kloppe C, Klaaßen-Mielke R Abstract BACKGROUND: Persons of lower socio-economic status are at higher risk of disease, especially with respect to severe and chronic illnesses. To date, there have not been any studies with large case numbers regarding acute medical emergencies in this population. METHODS: In a retrospective study, data were obtained on all cases treated by emergency physicians in Bochum, Germany, in 2014/2015, including the diagnoses that were made by the emergency physicians. There were a total of 16 767 cas...
ConclusionsThis real-world examination of the US practice demonstrates that second-generation cryoballoon ablation by PVI strategy is safe and effective among patients with paroxysmal AF.
