RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI[1] major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...

AbstractPurposeTo assess outcomes and predictors of early and long-term remission in patients with Cushing ’s disease (CD) due to ACTH-secreting adenomas treated via endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA).MethodsThis is a retrospective study. Consecutive patients operated for CD from 1998 to 2017 in an Italian referral Pituitary Center were enrolled. Clinical, radiological, and histological data at enrollment and follow-up were collected.Results151 patients (107 F) were included; 88.7% were na ïve for treatment, 11.3% had been treated surgically and 11.2% medically. At pre-operative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

Authors: Matsui R, Wong M, Waters B Abstract Transoral application of a nasopharyngeal airway (NPA) is a novel technique for difficult airway management. Clinically, it is an effective alternative for use in nonintubated dental cases under total intravenous anesthesia. This technique can help improve oxygenation and ventilation in clinical situations in which the conventional use of NPAs is ineffective, such as in patients who have findings of obesity; mandibular retrognathia or hypoplasia; maxillary hypoplasia; macroglossia; nasal obstruction secondary to hypertrophic tonsillar, adenoid, and/or lymphoid tissues or...

By Jan LundiusSTOCKHOLM / ROME, Mar 19 2020 (IPS) The human factor is intimately involved in the origin, spread, and mitigation of the Coronavirus and we cannot afford to ignore that our future existence depends on compassion and cooperation. Response matters! Some quarantined Italians might recall Giovanni Boccaccio´s The Decameron from 1353 in which people escaping the plague are secluded in a villa where they tell stories to each other. Boccaccio introduced his collection of short stories with an eyewitness account of horrifying human suffering in Florence, which in 1348 was struck by a ”pestilence” t...

CONCLUSIONS: Tumor size and extent are major prognostic factors for both extent of resection and endocrinological remission. The consistency of TSHomas was more likely to be solid, which makes extracapsular dissection more feasible. Long-term remission of TSHomas could be predicted even during the early postoperative period. PMID: 32168476 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study investigated whether paranasal sinus (PNS) CT could provide information for predicting EA bleeding without angiography in patients with refractory epistaxis requiring ESPAL.MethodsForty-seven patients, who were surgically treated [with ESPAL or EA ligation (EAL)] for refractory epistaxis from March 2010 to June 2019, were retrospectively analyzed. A positive PNS CT finding for EA bleeding was defined as the presence of soft tissue densities having continuity with the EA pathway, accompanied by a partially deficient surrounding bony canal. These findings as well as soft tissue densities in each paranasal sinus we...

ConclusionsInpatient treatment of epistaxis seems to be variable in daily routine needing standardization by clinical guidelines and strategies to shorten inpatient treatment and to reduce the risk of readmission.
