I Ching Balance Acupuncture Treatment of Migraines, Insomnia, and Depression in a Post-Ovariectomy Patient Receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Conclusions: This patient reported a considerable improvement in all the outcome measures. She completed the treatment after experiencing great improvement in her QoL. Additional, larger-scale studies are warranted to investigate the effects of ICBA. PMID: 29410721 [PubMed]
A little bit about me: I went to two different 4-year undergraduate schools (transferred out of the first one due to clinical depression). Let's call them college 1 and college 2 (the most recent college I am at). Currently a senior in undergrad, with 3 quarters left of school (hoping I can raise my GPA in that time). I am planning on taking a gap year and in that time working with a local community in a healthcare-related way. Race/ethnicity: Chinese, Mexican, White... Do I have a chance at a top medical school?
We present an unusual case of advanced ovarian carcinoma with postoperative complications of ischemia and perforation of the rectum as a result of tumor embolism. The interval progression from ischemia to infarction of the rectum was captured in repeated sigmoidoscopies. A brief discussion on tumor embolism and management of this case is also included.

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: Among critically ill patients with acute pancreatitis, mortality at 30 days was lower in patients who received epidural analgesia than in comparable patients who did not. These findings support ongoing research on the use of epidural analgesia as a therapeutic intervention in acute pancreatitis.
Conclusions: Impaired fibrinolysis, mainly driven by plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 increase and thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor activation, is an early manifestation of sepsis and may precede the development of thrombocytopenia. Thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor level, in particular, proved to be an independent predictor of mortality, which may improve risk stratification of patients with severe sepsis.
