Authors: Téllez L, Rodríguez-Santiago E, Albillos A Abstract Fontan-associated liver disease is a hepatic disorder arising from hemodynamic changes and systemic venous congestion following Fontan surgery. The histological changes produced in the liver are similar but not equivalent to those seen in other forms of cardiac liver disease. While the natural history of this form of liver disease is not well established, over time many Fontan patients develop portal hypertension-related complications such as ascites, variceal hemorrhage or encephalopathy. Fontan survivors also show an increased risk of hepa...

Conclusions: Our findings suggest that the SIP does not appear to function effectively in a mixed dementia sample where there is increased potential for secondary gain. Additional concern is expressed regarding the overall likelihood of obtaining the SIP and subsequent inferential decisions related to obtaining an SIP. Future research should examine more optimal cut scores or alternative methods for more accurately classifying patients in different clinical contexts and patterns of impairment.

Authors: Abstract Ectopic pregnancy is defined as a pregnancy that occurs outside of the uterine cavity. The most common site of ectopic pregnancy is the fallopian tube. Most cases of tubal ectopic pregnancy that are detected early can be treated successfully either with minimally invasive surgery or with medical management using methotrexate. However, tubal ectopic pregnancy in an unstable patient is a medical emergency that requires prompt surgical intervention. The purpose of this document is to review information on the current understanding of tubal ectopic pregnancy and to provide guidelines for timely diag...
