Factors Associated with Recurrent Ulcers in Patients with Gastric Surgery after More Than 15 Years: A Cross-Sectional Single-Center Study.

Conclusion: Biliary reflux and alcohol consumption, but not Helicobacter pylori infection or gastrotoxic drug, seem to be the most important predictors for ulcer recurrence in patients with gastric surgery for peptic ulcer after more than 15 years. PMID: 30524477 [PubMed]

Bozzay, Konrad Bresin, Edelyn VeronaAbstractA prominent characteristic of externalizing psychopathology is the inability to suppress or modulate behavioral responses and impulses. These tendencies have been associated with cognitive indicators of inhibitory control (P3) and error processing (error-related negativity [ERN] and positivity [Pe]). However, the extent to which these trait-like components are characteristic of specific manifestations, or externalizing proneness more generall...

Several factors are thought to have roles in pathogenesis of adverse obstetric events related to APS, including platelet and endothelial cell activation, complement activation, and ultimate activation of...

Araten, Daniel Boxer, Leah Zamechek, Erik Sherman, Michael NardiAbstractThe marked pro-thrombotic tendency in PNH is likely to be at least partly due to the population of platelets derived from the abnormal stem cell clone. However, identification of GPI (−) platelets by flow cytometry can be technically difficult. Here we describe a technique that involves the addition of aspirin immediately after the separation of platelet rich plasma and the use of gel filtration to isolate platelets away from plasma p...

HolleboomThe prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is strongly increasing and may put patients at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (asCVD). Both disease phenotypes often co-occur, in the case of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus type 2, and the metabolic syndrome. We explore the pathogenesis of NAFLD, the epidemiology of asCVD in NAFLD patients, shared drivers of both phenotypes, and fact...

Conclusion: In conclusion, cannabis, alcohol and cigarette use were prevalent in the acute period post-concussion; however, were not observed to impact recovery within the first 4 weeks post-injury. Amongst unrecovered individuals, acute cannabis use was associated with lower symptom burden, while cigarette use was associated with greater initial symptom burden.

We present a very unusual initial presentation of occult HCC with peritoneal carcinomatosis secondary to liver rupture in a 70-year-old man with known nonalcoholic steatohepatitis–cirrhosis, best appreciated on FDG PET/CT. Our patient died a few days later. Tumor rupture is a rare but usually rapidly lethal complication of HCC.
