(CNN) — In what researchers are calling “the largest genetic study ever performed” on varicose vein disease, a Stanford University School of Medicine study found a person’s height to be a significant risk factor for developing varicose veins. “We not only found an association between height and varicose veins, but the genetic studies we did showed a causal link,” said cardiologist and study author Dr. Nicholas Leeper, an associate professor of surgery and cardiovascular medicine at Stanford. “That suggests that the genes and pathways that drive human height are also likely to be ca...

Authors: Zhao M, Li H, Fan L, Ma Y, Gong H, Lai W, Fang Q, Hu Z Abstract The first nano-platform commercialized as a drug delivery system was a liposomal formulation. The application of liposome technology resolved the issues of paclitaxel (PTX) insolubility and eliminated the use of solvents causing toxic side-effects, which enabled to apply higher drug doses leading to an enhanced drug efficacy. The growth-inhibitory activity of liposome-encapsulated PTX was retained in vitro against a variety of tumor cell. To investigate the drug efficacy in the system biological level, quantitative proteomic analysis was emplo...

Authors: Ius F, Tudorache I, Warnecke G Abstract During recent years, continuous technological innovation has provoked an increase of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) use for perioperative cardiopulmonary support in lung transplantation. Initial results were disappointing, due to ECLS-specific complications and high surgical risk of the supported patients. However, the combination of improved patient management, multidisciplinary team work and standardization of ECLS protocols has recently yielded excellent results in several case series from high-volume transplant centres. Therein, it was demonstrated that, alth...

Conclusions: Our initial experience proved that this two-step surgical approach combining median sternotomy and subsequent posterolateral thoracotomy was safe and feasible for locally advanced lung cancers requiring both lung resection and SVC reconstruction. PMID: 30233856 [PubMed]

WhelanAirway complications after lung transplantation are well described and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Treatment options for anastomotic dehiscence include expectant management, placement of endobronchial stents, or surgical repair. The use of fibrin sealant instilled by bronchoscopy to seal a dehiscence has not been well described. Our patient is a 57-year-old man who underwent orthotropic bilateral lung tr...

This study aimed to assess patterns of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after liver transplantation (LT) and to establish long-term surveillance protocols for late HCC recurrence. MATERIAL AND METHODS The 232 LT recipients experiencing subsequent HCC recurrence were categorized as Group 1, early recurrence (within 1 year of LT; n=117); Group 2, late recurrence (occurring in years 2-5; n=93); and Group 3, very late recurrence (after year 5; n=22). RESULTS Recurrence was detected by only elevated tumor marker levels in 11.1%, 30.1%, and 45.5% of patients in Groups 1, 2, and 3, respectively (p

AbstractPurpose of ReviewConnective tissue disease-related interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD) previously was a relative contraindication to lung transplantation primarily due to extra-pulmonary involvement of the disease. Recent published information focusing on the diagnosis and management of the extra-pulmonary complexities associated with CTD-ILD that challenge the success of lung transplantation indicate similar outcomes when compared to idiopathic causes of interstitial lung disease. Recent literature examining appropriate wait-listing criteria, disease management, and outcomes after lung transplantation are discusse...
