Safety and Efficacy of Hypothermia (34 °C) after Hemicraniectomy for Malignant MCA Infarction.

CONCLUSION: This study suggests that hypothermia after hemicraniectomy is a viable option when the progression of patients with malignant MCA infarction indicate poor prognosis. PMID: 29526071 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Thus, diabetes mellitus itself was not an independent factor associated with IAD. A larger IAD was preferentially associated with the presence of PAD, and this association was modified by age. PMID: 31813900 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Malicdan, Wendy J. IntroneSince the initial description of Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS), over 75 years ago, several studies have been conducted to underscore the role of the lysosomal trafficking regulator (LYST) gene in the pathogenesis of disease. CHS is a rare autosomal recessive disorder, which is caused by biallelic mutations in the highly conserved LYST gene. The disease is characterized by partial oculocut...

Kauling, Judith A.A.E. Cuypers, Jolien W. Roos-Hesselink, Eric BoersmaAbstractBackgroundSingle high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT) measurement is predictive of cardiac events in adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). We aimed to study the prognostic value of serial hs-TnT measurements in stable ACHD patients.MethodsIn total, 602 consecutive ACHD patients were enrolled in this prospective study (2011-2013). Blood sampling was...

Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Roy M. John, David L. SternAbstractArrhythmias are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the course of cardiac amyloidosis (CA). Less commonly, they may be the initial manifestation that lead to the diagnosis. With improved therapeutic interventions for amyloidosis, it is no longer considered a terminal untreatable condition and there is an increasing recognition of the role of cardiac implantable electronic devices in CA. The frequency and nature of arrhythmias is largely determined by the type of amyloidosis. Bradyarr...

Authors: Casagrande Pierantoni D, Bernardo M, Mallardo E, Carannante N, Attanasio V, Corte L, Roscini L, Di Fiore L, Tascini C, Cardinali G Abstract A correct, fast, reliable identification method is pivotal in nosocomial environments to guide treatment strategies, whereas misidentification might lead to treatment failure. For routine identifications the Vitek system and CHROMagar are widely used but not always reliable, especially now with an increasing number of new emerging fungal pathogens that need careful identification. Here we describe two cases of candidemia, due to Candida palmioleophila previously miside...

We present the case of an 11 year old male who was found to have a right-sided, post-obstructive pneumonia secondary to an aspirated FB obstructing the bronchus intermedius. Relief of the obstruction allowed for rapid, endobronchial spread of infection and within 6 hours of FB removal, our patient developed severe ARDS requiring initiation of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Streptococcus constellatus was isolated from lower respiratory cultures obtained during initial bronchoscopy.
