Background: Variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is common in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). However, poor access to endoscopy services precludes the diagnosis of varices.Objectives: We determined the diagnostic accuracy of routine clinical findings for detection of esophageal varices among patients with UGIB in rural SSA where schistosomiasis is endemic.Methods: We studied patients with a history of UGIB. The index tests included routine clinical findings and the reference test was diagnostic endoscopy. Multivariable regression with post-estimation provided measures of association and diagnostic accuracy.Results: We...

Conclusions: This is the first time that the extent and plausible effects of allogenic blood transfusions during NAC is examined in MIBC. Data suggest that there may be an association between blood transfusion and poor pathological and oncological outcome. Firm conclusions are difficult to draw due to few study participants and the retrospective nature of the study. PMID: 31960752 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

January 21, 2020—(BRONX, NY)—A clinical trial has found the drug luspatercept significantly reduced the need for blood transfusions in people with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a group of bone marrow disorders that leave people with many defective blood cells and too few normal ones. Approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) would make luspatercept the first new drug available to MDS patients in 12 years.Results of the phase 3 clinical trial were published online January 9 in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

This retrospective study reviewed an experience with JW patients who were undergoing open heart surgery.MethodsBy using patient blood management strategies, 35 adult JW patients underwent cardiac surgery at Kepler University Hospital in Linz, Austria between 2008 and 2017. Outcomes were...

ConclusionsDecrease in the rates of perioperative outcomes parallels improvements in patient selection and perioperative management of early stage NSCLC resection patients. Predictors of pulmonary complication could be used to improve selection criteria for surgery and to reduce the incidence of pulmonary complication in these patients.

ConclusionsThese protocols are intended to assist clinicians in the management of patients with both ICP and brain oxygen monitors but they do not reflect either a standard-of-care or a substitute for thoughtful individualized management. These protocols should be used in conjunction with recommendations for basic care, management of critical neuroworsening and weaning treatment recently published in conjunction with the Seattle International Brain Injury Consensus Conference.

CONCLUSION: The amotosalen/UVA PR system inactivated high titers of infectious YFV-17D in PC. This PR technology could reduce the risk of YFV TTI and help secure PC supplies in areas experiencing YFV outbreaks where massive vaccination campaigns are required.

AbstractOmental flap was introduced for breast reconstruction after mastectomy either alone or as an adjunct to prosthetic reconstruction. Laparoscopically harvested omental flap was used successfully for this issue. Most of reports had described its use after partial mastectomy, skin or nipple areola sparing mastectomies. In this case, we used the thoracodorsal artery perforator (Tdap) flap as a cover for the omental flap in a patient who underwent modified radical mastectomy. Modified radical mastectomy was done in the usual fashion. The descending branch of the thoracodorsal vessel was traced till its main perforator in...
