Correlation between sinus and lung cultures in lung transplant patients with cystic fibrosis
ConclusionThere was a high correlation between pretransplant sinus cultures and posttransplant BAL cultures for PsA, MRSA, and Burkholderia sp. This suggests that the paranasal sinuses may act as a reservoir for allograft colonization in patients with cystic fibrosis. Further studies are needed to determine whether treatment of sinusitis affects allograft colonization and transplant outcomes.

Hello everyone - I am just starting general GI fellowship and loving finally getting to do some endoscopy. I didn't really think about getting specific endoscopy footwear before starting fellowship. After doing an EGD in sneakers, an attending let me know I'd probably want to invest in some shoes for endoscopy (especially in the era of COVID), as my shoes are likely to get patient secretions or blood all over them at some point. What shoes/footwear do you like to wear during endoscopy... Shoes for endoscopy?
Conclusions: HRU and costs from HCT to PTLD were high and more than doubled within 1-year post-PTLD. PTLD patients who died had ∼7 times higher costs than those who lived, driven by hospitalizations. Effective treatments are needed to reduce the burden of PTLD. PMID: 32643493 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Grette K, Cassity S, Holliday N, Rimawi BH Abstract We performed a comprehensive systematic review of acute pyelonephritis in pregnancy using PubMed, SCOPUS, ClinicalTrials.gov, and Ovid from inception to April 2018. About 7796 references were screened for inclusion, and 52 references from 1908 to 2017 were included. One hundred seven cases of acute pyelonephritis in pregnant women were reviewed. Gestational age at diagnosis was reported as 2 (2%), 43 (40%), and 51 (52%) during the first, second, and third trimesters, respectively. Maternal complications included sepsis (49%), acute respiratory distress sy...

Authors: Sunwoo JY, Murrell GAC Abstract Managing massive irreparable rotator cuff tears is a challenge. Interposition graft repairs to bridge the torn defect are a promising solution. Many graft materials are available for interposition repairs including the following: allografts, autografts, extracellular matrix, and synthetic grafts. Currently, it is unknown how these materials compare biomechanically or in their clinical outcomes when used for interposition graft repairs of massive irreparable rotator cuff tears. Most allografts and autografts are similar, in maximal load and stiffness, to intact rotator cuff t...
