ConclusionsTreatment with warfarin or aspirin both lead to similar outcomes after surgical bAVR. Combining aspirin with warfarin may lead to a small decrease in thromboembolism and mortality but is accompanied by increased bleeding. For TAVR patients, aspirin is equivalent to DAPT for reducing thromboembolism and mortality, with a possible decrease in bleeding.

ConclusionsIn patients with significant bleeding following cardiac surgery, PCC administration seems to be more effective than FFP in reducing perioperative blood transfusions. No additional risks of thromboembolic events or other adverse reactions were observed. Randomized controlled trials are needed to definitively establish the safety of PCC in cardiac surgery.

CONCLUSIONS: These results highlight a key role of the nucleus accumbens in cigarette craving in schizophrenia and suggest that the subjective valuation of cigarette cues is increased in this population. Similar neurofunctional studies on cravings for other psychoactive substances in schizophrenia are warranted. PMID: 30445892 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 17 November 2018Source: Meat ScienceAuthor(s): Xiao Lu, Yimin Zhang, Lixian Zhu, Xin Luo, David L. HopkinsAbstractThe effect of superchilled storage (SC, −4 °C) on shelf life and quality characteristics of M. longissimus lumborum from Chinese Yellow cattle compared with traditional chilling (TC, 2 °C) and frozen storage (−18 °C) was studied. The shelf life of beef steaks held at −4 °C extended to 12 weeks based on the total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) value, which was 2.4 times longer than steaks stored at 2 °C. As the storage time inc...
