Multidisciplinary Approach to PAD: Who's on Your Team?

Semin intervent Radiol 2018; 35: 378-383 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1676094The complexity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and its multiorgan involvement requires the utilization of a multispecialty team approach. Members of this team include a vascular specialty (interventional radiology, cardiology, and vascular surgery), podiatry, orthopedic surgery, primary care, infectious disease, endocrinology, plastic surgery, wound care nursing, and dietetics. A team approach has been proven to significantly improve patient outcomes as well as decreasing amputation rates. In order to promote collaboration and avoid duplication of care, the team can be broken down into three main pillars: medical management, wound care, and revascularization. A complete team approach is vital for this population, with an overall goal to treat all manifestations of the disease and prevent further progression and risk of major sequelae of the disease.

In this study, we genetically characterised Monogenea found on the gill of common carp in Iran. In total, 5603 parasites were recovered from 112 fish. The parasites were first identified morphologically as Dactylogyrus extensus, D. anchoratus, D. vastator, D. minutus, D. achmerowi and Gyrodactylus sprostonae. Representative samples were then subjected to sequencing. This is one of the first studies which has provided both morphological and sequence data for Dactylogyrus spp. and G. sprostonae. Our findings provide a foundation for future research into the genetic make-up of these economically significant parasites and the ...

Alejandra Tortorici, David VeeslerAbstractCoronaviruses (CoVs) have caused outbreaks of deadly pneumonia in humans since the beginning of the 21st century. The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) emerged in 2002 and was responsible for an epidemic that spread to five continents with a fatality rate of 10% before being contained in 2003 (with additional cases reported in 2004). The Middle-East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) emerged in the Arabian Peninsula in 2012 and has caused recurrent outbre...

The physiology and production performance generally alter during winter in growing lambs. Therefore, the present study was initiated to assess the effect of wind protection during winter on growing lambs in a semi-arid tropical region. For this purpose, fourteen growing Malpura-cross lambs of 3-5 months of age with the body weight of 21.06&th...

The objective of the study was to (1) characterize and compare the chemical composition at the surface, subsurface and in the bulk of thin plastic films used for portosystemic shunt attenuation in their native state and after plasma exposure. (2) Assess the presence, concentration and location of irritant compounds (e.g dicetyl phosphate) within the films.Attenuated Total Reflectance Infrared Spectroscopy (ATR-IR), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and dynamic Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) were used to analyze thirteen thin plastic films. Sample thickness was visualized and measured using S...

Additionally, non-Saccharomyces strains can be used with S. cerevisiae for the production of wines with more complexity. Yeast strains, to varying extents, produce and/or mediate the release of a whole range of key metabolites, which in turn contribute to enhanced aroma and fl...
