CONCLUSIONS: Direct oral anticoagulants are now the preferred agents for most patients receiving anticoagulation therapy. With patients receiving any type of therapeutic anticoagulation, clinicians usually can perform dental procedures such as restorations, limited dental extractions, endodontic procedures, soft-tissue biopsies, and scalings safely without anticoagulation therapy interruption. Although local hemostatic maneuvers are often sufficient during dental procedures, antifibrinolytic medications, as well as local sponges and glues, can be used to ensure adequate hemostasis. Different classes of anticoagulants inter...

We report two cases of GSF in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients that were successfully treated with chemotherapy and irradiation without surgical resection. Case 1 was of a 63-year-old man who had primary gastric DLBCL with a large lesion outside the stomach wall, leading to a spontaneous fistula in the spleen. Case 2 was of a 59-year-old man who had primary splenic DLBCL, which proliferated and infiltrated directly into the stomach. In both cases, chemotherapy comprising rituximab + dose-adjusted EPOCH regimen (etoposide, prednisone, vincristine, cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin) was administered. Case 1 had ...
