A 14-month-old girl presented with fever and generalized erythroderma. She had a history of polyhydramnios, premature birth (32 weeks), polyuria, and repeated episodes of volume depletion and dehydration with hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis and hypernatremia. The patient ’s parents were Romani and first cousins, and had had 3 previous preterm newborns from gestations with polyhydramnios, who died in the first 15 days of life. Laboratory work-up revealed low serum potassium of 3.35 mEq/l, 1.45 mg/dl serum magnesium with high fractional excretions of 15.5% and 10.6% , respectively, 9.2 mg/dl serum calcium, 0.62 mg/mg u...

CONCLUSIONS: 10% of the cases featured the variations of popliteal artery terminal branches. Three most commonly seen variations are the trifurcation, anterior tibial-peroneal trunk, and high terminal division of the popliteal artery. The most common course of the superior muscular branches is that there are two large branches which are distributed from the popliteal artery at the height of the knee joint cavity and they do not distribute cutaneous branches. Sural branches are also present as two large vessels without cutaneous branches. The genicular anastomosis branches that run on their own are a typical topographic sys...

It has been recognized as highly debated for many decades. Despite the abundance of literature and the well-recognized importance of palivizumab in the high risk groups, and despite the existence of numerous, high-quality, recent guidelines on bronchiolitis, the number of...

CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to demonstrate benefit or harm of using anticoagulants with or without ASA versus ASA alone in people with aPL antibodies and a history of recurrent pregnancy loss and with no such history; ASA versus placebo in people with aPL antibodies; and ASA with LMWH versus placebo or IVIG, and ASA with high-dose LMWH versus ASA with low-dose LMWH or UFH, in women with aPL antibodies and a history of recurrent pregnancy loss, for the primary prevention of thrombotic events. In a mixed population of people with a history of previous pregnancy loss and without such a history treated with ant...

ConclusionsThe scale using the classical definition has high sensitivity, but it is not specific; adjusting the definition for altitude decreases sensitivity but increases specificity. New cutoffs points are needed on the scale or a change in the weight for the variables included in the model in order to be used in our high-altitude population.

ConclusionsAccessibility maps at the census block level have been distributed to community stakeholders. Further analysis of rural health in trailer park communities is imperative. This study has implications for Kalamazoo County health, but also the health of other urban-rural counties across the country with similar vulnerable populations.

ConclusionsPeribulbar block was a safe anesthetic technique in our sample considered.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosAté o momento não há um consenso sobre a técnica anestésica mais adequada para o tratamento de retinopatia da prematuridade. O bloqueio peribulbar pode reduzir a incidência de reflexo oculocardíaco e apneia no pós-operatório. O objetivo deste estudo foi relatar os resultados do bloqueio peribulbar, quando combinado com anestesia geral, para o tratamento a laser de retinopatia da prematuridade em bebês prematuros.MétodosUma análi...
