Telangiectatic Matting is Associated with Hypersensitivity and a Bleeding Tendency.

CONCLUSION: TM is associated with both hypersensitivity and a bleeding tendency. This study revealed no significant increase in the incidence of haemostatic abnormalities in patients with TM compared with the control group. Given the significant association with hypersensitivity disorders, the underlying mast cell hyper-reactivity may contribute to both hypersensitivity and a bleeding tendency and predispose patients to TM.

Diagnosing the site of chronic or acute bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract has always presented a major clinical dilemma. In the late 1950s, before the advent of flexible endoscopy, the only available method was rigid endoscopy. Endoscopes could be inserted down the esophagus into the stomach or past the rectum into the sigmoid colon. Because of the presence of blood in the gastrointestinal tract, neither of these techniques was very successful in identifying the bleeding site. Many patients even had emergency barium studies, with very limited success.

Conclusions The most frequent symptoms reported by women diagnosed with uterine myomas were heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic or abdominal pain and dysmenorrhea; QoL was impaired reflecting high symptom distress. Surgery was the main therapeutic approach. We found that surgery was the main therapeutic approach to manage uterine myomas in Spain. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments achieve relevant improvements in symptom severity and quality of life.

AbstractThe management of major bleeding in patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) is still not well established. START-Events, a branch of the START registry (Survey on anTicoagulated pAtients RegisTer) (NCT02219984), aims to describe the actual management of bleeding or recurrent thrombotic events in routine clinical practice. We here present the results of the management of bleeding patients. The START-Event registry is a prospective, observational, multicenter, international study. Baseline characteristics (demographic, clinical, risk factors) of patients, laboratory data at admission and during follo...

This study analysed the application of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the angiogenesis of mature root canals. Material and methods Upper first molars of twelve 13-week old Wistar male rats were used. The root pulp of the mesiobuccal canal was removed and the root canal instrumented with K-files up to size #25. Periapical bleeding was induced into the root canal by introducing a #15 K-file beyond the apex. The teeth on the right side of the arch were filled up with blood clot (G1), whereas those on the left side were filled up with blood clot plus 50 ng/ml of VEGF (G2). Teeth were sealed with light-curing glas...

Eggs have been a taboo food for decades, since they are high in cholesterol, but the latest science suggests that they might not be as unhealthy as once thought. In a study published in the journal Heart, researchers from China found that people who ate an average of one egg per day had lower rates of heart disease and an even lower risk of having a bleeding stroke than people who did not eat eggs. The study included nearly half a million people in China who filled out questionnaires about their egg-eating habits and were followed for nine years on average for heart-related health events. People who said they ate eggs da...
