Abstract Propofol is an intravenous short-acting anesthetic widely used to induce and maintain general anesthesia and to provide procedural sedation. The potential for propofol dependency and abuse has been recognized, and several cases of accidental overdose and suicide have emerged, mostly among the health professionals. Different studies have demonstrated an unpredictable interindividual variability of propofol pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics with forensic and clinical adverse relevant outcomes (e.g., pronounced respiratory and cardiac depression), namely, due to polymorphisms in the UDP-glucuronosyltrans...

Conclusions: This study indicates that Hh activation during AP development is a negative feedback of the inflammatory response, restricting inflammatory injury to the pancreas and other tissues. Thus, manipulation of Hh signaling should shed light on limiting inflammation and alleviating AP damage.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;48:120 –130

The actual words the doctor used were "100% blockage of natural vessels". What are "natural vessels"? They are the veins in your heart that you are born with. That is what his angiogram showed. The 3 bypass veins have some blockage. They are too fragile to put a stint in. In order to clean out the plaque, they would have to go in with a DRILL and literally drill out the plaque. Instead they are going to use drug therapy to try and increase the blood flow in his heart.Which is at 30%. So during the angiogram they were not able to stint anything.He probably had anot...
