CONCLUSIONS: Anatomical variations should be expected in the pediatric population. Familiarity with their point prevalence and associations may assist pediatric endoscopic sinus surgery planning. PMID: 30778427 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Braun OÖ, Nilsson J, Gustafsson F, Dellgren G, Fiane AE, Lemström K, Hubbert L, Hellgren L, Lund LH Abstract OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess complications and mortality and its predictors, with continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVADs) in the Nordic Countries. DESIGN: This was a retrospective, international, multicenter cohort study. RESULTS: Between 1993 - 2013 442 surgically implanted long-term mechanical assist devices were used among 8 centers in the Nordic countries. Of those, 238 were CF-LVADs (HVAD or HeartMate II) implanted in patients>18 ye...
Authors: Najjar E, Ljung Faxén U, Hage C, Donal E, Daubert JC, Linde C, Lund LH Abstract OBJECTIVES: Soluble suppression of tumorigenecity 2 (sST2) is prognostic in acute and chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) but less studied in HF with preserved EF (HFpEF). We evaluated sST2 concentrations, correlations with biomarkers and echocardiographic measures of diastolic and systolic function, and associations with outcomes in HFpEF and HFrEF. DESIGN AND RESULTS: A total of 193 subjects from three different cohorts were included. Eighty-six HFpEF patients were obtained from the Karolin...
LUNG cancer symptoms include a cough the won ’t go away, unexplained weight loss and severe chest pain. But you could also be at risk of deadly lung tumour signs if your eyes are a distinctive colour.
While medicine transforms cancer into a chronic disease with which patients can live for an extended period of time, financial toxicity threatens to turn chronic, too.

A retrospective chart review was conducted on pediatric orthopaedic trauma patients (n = 124) who were discharged from the hospital or emergency department or had a clinic visit during a 1-month period. Patient demographics, prescription specifics, injury details, and fracture fixation information were collect...
