This study aimed to identify the risk factors associated with complications and/or graft failure in kidney transplant patients with sepsis. A total of 14,658 kidney transplant patients with sepsis, identified in the National Inpatient Sample (NIS) database (data from 2005-2014), were included in the study and classified into three groups: patients without complications or graft failure/dialysis (Group 1), patients with complications only (Group 2), and patients with complications and graft failure/dialysis (Group 3). Multinomial logistic regression analyses were conducted to evaluate factors associated with kidney transpla...
CONCLUSION: During COH for IVF treatment, DPA showed no changes in arterial stiffness during the follicular phase or in early pregnancy, but increased arterial stiffness in central and peripheral arteries in the early luteal phase. The result suggests a hormonal hemodynamic activation counteracting the effects of estrogen. PMID: 30238809 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Papendieck C, Barbosa L, Amore M, Martinez Allende R, Mogollon G, Gomez Rueda S, Gomez M Abstract Truncular venous malformations and acquired functional or anatomical venous occlusions (or sub-occlusions) can be the cause of secondary lymphedema and even the cause of primary lymphedema when they are associated with lymphatic malformations (lymphangiodysplasia - LAD I, lymphadenodysplasia - LAD II, or a combination of both) in pediatric patients. This understanding recognizes the shared and successive embryogenesis of both systems. These conditions can exhibit hypertension in the venous pedicles intended fo...
This study examines the relationship between anxiolytic medications (AXM) on outcomes following ventral hernia repair.MethodsA single-center review of prospectively obtained perioperative and 30-day outcome data, including AXM use at admission, as part of the National Surgery Quality Improvement Program.ResultsSixty-three of the 393 patients who presented for ventral hernia repair were taking an AXM (15.6%). AXM users were more likely to have a higher ASA class, dyspnea, and treated hypertension (p
ConclusionThis study used readily available electronic health record data to highlight comorbidities that are more common among obese pediatric patients in academic family medicine practice, thus providing information that could potentially facilitate more timely screening and intervention.

While there are many garlic products available in Australian pharmacies, it is unclear if these products are formulated based on the ...
