Outcomes of endoscopic submucosal dissection for gastric epithelial neoplasm in chronic kidney disease patients: propensity score-matched case –control analysis

ConclusionsESD for gastric epithelial neoplasms can be performed in stage 3 CKD patients with comparable efficacy and safety to that performed in non-CKD patients. Stage 4 and 5 CKD patients should be closely monitored for bleeding events after ESD.

Potential combination topical therapy of anal fissure: development, evaluation, and clinical study†. Drug Deliv. 2018 Nov;25(1):1672-1682 Authors: Salem AE, Mohamed EA, Elghadban HM, Abdelghani GM Abstract To treat anal fissure, internal anal sphincterotomy may be associated with surgical risks and incidence of incontinence. Botulinum toxin injection into the anal sphincter is invasive and expensive. Headache and hypotension hindered topical treatment with glyceryl trinitrate. Greater patient compliance, potentiated efficacy, reduced side effects, and lower cost are the major advantages offered ...

Authors: Caspers M, Maegele M, Fröhlich M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite advances in the treatment of severely injured patients that have resulted in overall improved outcomes, uncontrolled hemorrhage still represents the most common cause of preventable death following major injury. While addressing both endo- and exogenous factors that lead to an acute trauma-induced coagulopathy, massive transfusion plays a key role in managing bleeding trauma patients. However, the best practice for hemostatic control including massive transfusion in these patients is still under debate. Areas covered: This review summariz...

The information about the tumor’s sensitivity to chemotherapy and prognostic significance based on response to therapy can be provided after individualized neoadjuvant treatment. The biomarkers are key factors in the decision-making process regarding treatment as well as important prognostic indicators. Studies have shown that patients who achieve pathological complete response(pCR) after NCT have a better prognosis. For ...

ConclusionsThe aforementioned predicting factors could be used when approaching the decision to intubate. When in doubt, we should give the benefit to the patient, proceed to intubate and reevaluate progress daily and in doing so, we would suggest to use the trends in SOFA score and weaning index to assess success or failure of invasive mechanical ventilation.
