Authors: Sayad A, Dehaghi MO, Taheri M, Fallah H, Arsang-Jang S, Shadnoush M, Ghafouri-Fard S, Hamidieh AA Abstract Fanconi anemia includes a number of clinically and genetically diverse disorders all of them being associated with genomic instability. Some previous studies reported higher frequencies of certain HLA alleles in patients with Fanconi anemia. In the current study, we genotyped HLA-A/B/DRB1 alleles in 40 Iranian patients with Fanconi anemia. We also genotyped these alleles in the same number of Iranian sex-matched healthy individuals. The frequency of DRB1*11 was significantly higher in patients compare...

DISCUSSION Telemedicine offers an innovative model for ensuring women's access to medical abortion services in rural areas of Australia and likely has similar applicability to international non-urban contexts. Strategies are needed to ensure women with lower literacy and less favourable situational contexts, can equitably access abortion services through telemedicine. PMID: 32223850 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Keenan R, Chepulis L, Ly J, Carter S, Lao C, Asim M, Bhat A, Deo S, Lim KP, Mohammed R, Scarlet S, Lawrenson R Abstract INTRODUCTION Life expectancy in patients with schizophrenia is 15-20 years less than the general population. A dominant cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients is cardiovascular disease. Adverse consequences of modifiable cardiovascular risk factors can be reduced by regular monitoring of metabolic outcomes and intervention if required. AIM To evaluate the metabolic screening in primary care for patients with schizoaffective disorders managed in primary care. To show the useful...

Authors: Chuh A, Zawar V, Fölster-Holst R, Sciallis G, Rosemann T Abstract Dermoscopy in primary care enhances clinical diagnoses and allows for risk stratifications. We have compiled 25 recommendations from our experience of dermoscopy in a wide range of clinical settings. The aim of this study is to enhance the application of dermoscopy by primary care clinicians. For primary care physicians commencing dermoscopy, we recommend understanding the aims of dermoscopy, having adequate training, purchasing dermoscopes with polarised and unpolarised views, performing regular maintenance on the equipment, seeking co...

Authors: Stević M, Vlajković M, Veličković F, Stanojević G, Nestorović M, Petrović F Abstract A 69 year old patient was admitted to hospital with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage. The clinical presentation of the patient, except for bleeding, was dominated by the presence of neurofibromatosis type 1 - Von Recklinghausen disease. The patient was referred to multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy, which were performed without successful detection of the bleeding site. The MRI examination showed the existence of a tumor lo...

Purpose of review We will examine the current and future options in management of anemia in dialysis patients focusing on recent trials in iron supplementation and alternatives to erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESAs). Recent findings We review the literature on Erythropoietin (EPO)-stimulating agents, focusing on the risk benefits of various options available. We review the recent practice changing trial in iron supplementation in dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease and movements in the research on alternatives to EPO-stimulating agents primarily hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitors (HI...

Abstract Efforts to reduce blood product transfusions and adopt blood conservation strategies for infants and children undergoing cardiac surgical procedures are ongoing. Children typically receive red blood cell and coagulant blood products perioperatively for many reasons, including developmental alterations of their hemostatic system, and hemodilution and hypothermia with cardiopulmonary bypass that incites inflammation and coagulopathy and requires systemic anticoagulation. The complexity of their surgical procedures, complex cardiopulmonary interactions, and risk for inadequate oxygen delivery and postoperati...

Semin Thromb HemostDOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564831Trauma-induced coagulopathy is caused by multiple factors, such as anemia, hemodilution, hypothermia, acidosis, shock, and serious trauma itself, which affects patient outcomes due to critical bleeding requiring massive transfusion. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with the fibrinolytic phenotype directly caused by trauma and/or traumatic shock has been considered to be the primary pathophysiology of trauma-induced coagulopathy. The key to controlling DIC is vigorous treatment of the underlying disorder, that is, trauma itself and hemorrhagic shock. Damage control r...
