Clinical management of patients with hemophilia A in nephrology: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges illustrated by the cases of 2 patients.

[Clinical management of patients with hemophilia A in nephrology: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges illustrated by the cases of 2 patients]. Nephrol Ther. 2019 Jan 16;: Authors: Fedi M, Falaise C, Lanot A, Von Kotze C, Robert T, Piétri L, Henri P, Delmotte N, Botta D, Verhelst D, Chambost H, Brunet P, Jourde-Chiche N Abstract Hemophilia A is an X-linked genetic hemorrhagic disorder characterized by a factor VIII deficiency. The availability of secured substitution products has led to a dramatic improvement of life expectancy in hemophiliac patients. Nowadays, adult hemophiliac patients may develop Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) resulting from age-related comorbidities (hypertension, obesity, diabetes). In addition, the high prevalence of viral infections in this population exposes patients to an increased risk of CKD. The risk of hemorrhage in hemophiliac patients is a challenge for their clinical management, both for diagnostic procedures (kidney biopsy in particular) and for renal replacement therapy (dialysis or renal transplantation) when it is needed. This work provides an update of the literature data concerning the management of hemophiliac patients in nephrology, illustrated by the cases of two patients.

Authors: Jung O, Glachs D, Strohmeier F, Mulrenin R, Huisman S, Smith I, van Keulen H, Sont J, Ploessnig M Abstract The number of people with diabetes is increasing in every European country and like all chronic diseases it cannot be cured. However, patient empowerment is an acknowledged strategy for improving the patients' health situation. This paper describes the Action Plan Engine developed as a tool for diabetes patients in the POWER2DM project. The Action Plan Engine offers a guided workflow based on treatment goals and activities. A periodic review evaluates how successful a patient has fulfilled these goals...

Authors: Denecke K, Jolo P, Sevinc B, Nüssli S Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease that affects many people in Switzerland and around the world. Once diagnosed, a patient has to continuously monitor blood glucose, manage medications or inject insulin. Technical skills and competencies as well as knowledge on disease management have to be acquired right after being diagnosed. Diabetes consultants support patients in this process and provide educational material. While the process of generating patient-tailored material is currently complex and time consuming, in future, the eDiabetes platform c...

Authors: Harada K, Yasuda M, Hasegawa K, Yamazaki Y, Sasano H, Otsuka F Abstract Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy arising from adrenocortical parenchymal cells. Myxoid ACC is one of the newly identified, rare, but important histological variants of ACC, characterized by the presence of abundant extracellular Alcian Blue-positive myxoid material. Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome, and the incidence of ACC in MEN1 patients has been reported to be between 1.4% and 6%. Here, we report the case of a 68-year-old Japanese woman harboring t...

This study aimed to investigate if hyperinsulinemia and/or insulin resistance was correlated with the occurrence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) in a group of Chinese patients. 258 inpatients were included in the study. According to the postoperative pathology results, all subjects were divided into PTC (n = 153) and control groups (with benign thyroid nodules, n = 105). Body mass index (BMI), fasting glucose, fasting insulin, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), FT4, FT3, thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb), thyroglobulin antibody (TGAb), serum uric acid (UA), ...

ConclusionsHuman IGF-1 gene may be a candidate gene for GDM and T2DM risk, as our study suggests a significant association between the IGF-I rs35767 and rs5742612 polymorphisms and the risk of T2DM and GDM in pregnant women, whereas there was no association for rs2288377.

We examined a group of 40 morbidly obese (OB) patients and a control group (CG). All patients were subjected to anthropometric measurements, as well as laboratory and ultrasound examinations. Results: EATmean and EMTmean differed significantly between groups (OB vs. CG): 5.09 vs. 3.50 and 808.50 vs. 737.00, p

Conclusions: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a safe and effective procedure, with good results in the short and medium term. Long-term follow-up reveals a tendency to weight regain after approximately 2 years from primary surgery, with the need for revisional surgery in some cases. PMID: 31118990 [PubMed]

Authors: Dincer M, Dogan F Abstract Introduction: Obesity is an independent risk factor for gallstones. In obese patients, gallstone is more symptomatic than in non-obese people. Aim: To present the early results of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and concomitant cholecystectomy (CC) performed in patients with symptomatic gallstone accompanied by at least one additional systemic disease to obesity and to investigate its effect on morbidity. Material and methods: Patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy for morbid obesity between January 2016 and August 2018 were retrospectively studied. Twenty-seven pat...
