Lyme nephritis in humans: Physio-pathological bases and spectrum of kidney lesions.

[Lyme nephritis in humans: Physio-pathological bases and spectrum of kidney lesions]. Nephrol Ther. 2019 Jan 31;: Authors: Gueye S, Seck SM, Kane Y, Tosi PO, Dahri S, Kounde C, Algouzmari I, Gouin A, Ged É, Allal A, Rostaing L Abstract Known in less than half a century, borreliosis, or Lyme disease, is a zoonosis caused by the tick bite. It is the most common vector disease in Europe and the United States. Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the bacterium in question, is fitted with a "cunning device" that allows it to trick the immune system and implant the infection chronically. It causes multi-system tissue damage mediated by the inflammatory response of the host. Renal involvement is rarely reported and is better known in dogs as Lyme nephritis. The first case of kidney impairment in the human being was described in 1999, and since then eight other cases have been reported. The involvement is preferentially glomerular; the histological forms vary between immune complex nephropathy and podocytopathy. The pathophysiological mechanisms appear to be triple: immune complex deposits, podocytic hyper-expression of the B7-1 membrane protein, and renal infiltration of inflammatory cells. On the basis of the accumulated knowledge of the disease in just over 40 years, this review aims at establishing the physio-pathological hypotheses of renal involvement in order to better define the histological lesions.

Publication date: Available online 15 February 2020Source: Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical CareAuthor(s): Sima Patel, Andrea Estevez, Nicholas Nedeff, Jose Gascon, Ilde LeeAbstractAcross the United States (U.S.), very few centers exist with an intensive care unit (ICU) solely dedicated to obstetrics (OB) and gynecology (GYN) patients. The management of obstetric patients, who are admitted to a general intensive care unit, can often be accompanied by a fair share of apprehension owing to the intricacy of care. Rather than discussing common obstetric emergencies and their management, we would like to call attention to bas...

Authors: Burris M, Miller E, Romero-Daza N, Himmelgreen D Abstract The aim of this study was to assess whether household food insecurity is associated with delayed or early menarche among girls in the United States. Thirty-six dyadic household interviews were conducted with mothers and adolescent girls. The interviews included a socio-demographic survey, the USDA Six-Item Short Form Household Food Security Survey Module, anthropometric measurements, and the self-administered Youth-Adolescent Food Frequency Questionnaire. Using non-parametric quantitative analyses, we examined the associations among food insecurity,...

This study examined age differences in associations among primary stressors (caregiver burden which includes hours of provided care and number of activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living performed), secondary stressors (financial and employment strains), and caregiver outcomes (emotional strain and physical strain). RESEARCH DESIGN: Using Pearlin's Stress Process Model (1990) and the Caregiving in the United States 2015 dataset, 1,156 caregivers were identified (including 278 young adults aged 18-39 years, 464 midlife adults aged 40-59 years, and 414 older adults aged 60-80 years). RES...

Of the many arthroscopic knee surgeries, meniscectomy is the most commonly performed. Arthroscopic meniscectomy is the most common orthopaedic surgical procedure performed in the United States. We continue to develop more minimally invasive procedures, and the NanoScope has provided a new generation of possibilities. The system does not require the use of a standard in...
