Novel Antiplatelet Therapies for Atherothrombotic Diseases.

Novel Antiplatelet Therapies for Atherothrombotic Diseases. Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2019 Feb 14;:ATVBAHA118310955 Authors: Majithia A, Bhatt DL Abstract Antiplatelet therapies are an essential tool to reduce the risk of developing clinically apparent atherothrombotic disease and are a mainstay in the therapy of patients who have established cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and peripheral artery disease. Strategies to intensify antiplatelet regimens are limited by concomitant increases in clinically significant bleeding. The development of novel antiplatelet therapies targeting additional receptor and signaling pathways, with a focus on maintaining antiplatelet efficacy while preserving hemostasis, hold tremendous potential to improve outcomes among patients with atherothrombotic diseases.

AbstractTo compare antegrade versus retrograde recanalization, in terms of procedural time, radiation and contrast agent exposure, number and total length of implanted stents and procedural complications, in long and calcified, de novo femoropopliteal occlusions. We performed retrospective matching of prospectively acquired data by lesion length, occlusion length and lesion calcification by the peripheral arterial calcium scoring system (PACSS) score in patients who were referred for endovascular treatment due to symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD). Forty-two consecutive patients with antegrade and 23 patients with...

The objective was to analyze clinical, microbiological, and immunological periodontal parameters in patients in corrective orthodontic treatment.Materials and methodsTwenty-eight patients were selected. Plaque index (PI), bleeding on probing (BOP), width of keratinized gingiva, levels of 40 bacterial species, and of 3 cytokines (IL-1 β, MMP-8, and TNF-α) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) were evaluated at T0, before orthodontic treatment; T1, 6 months; and T2, 12 months post-treatment. Non-parametric, Friedman, Wilcoxon, ANOVA, and Spearman correlation coefficient tests were used for statistical a...

ConclusionA paradigm shift in the approach to management of biliary strictures complicating LDLT is proposed whereby a multidimensional definition of FSO can help in reliable patient selection for endotherapy and improve patient outcome as a whole.

Authors: Hicks SM, Coupland LA, Jahangiri A, Choi PY, Gardiner EE Abstract Diagnosis of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and prediction of response to therapy remain significant and constant challenges in hematology. In patients who present with ITP, the platelet count is frequently used as a surrogate marker for disease severity, and so often determines the need for therapy. Although there is a clear link between thrombocytopenia and hemostasis, a direct correlation between the extent of thrombocytopenia and bleeding symptoms, especially at lower platelet counts is lacking. Thus, bleeding in ITP is heterogeneous, unp...

Authors: Fernández Conesa M, Milena Muñoz A, Valero González MÁ Abstract We read with interest the article by Guido Villa-Gómez, Manuel Alejandro Mahler and Dante Manazzoni "A new case of pseudoaneurysm of the right hepatic artery secondary to laparoscopic cholecystectomy". A 57-year-old cholecystectomized female was admitted due to abdominal pain with an analytical pattern of cholestasis and liver enzyme alterations, with cholangitis that progressed to septic shock of a biliary origin with gradual anemia and hypotension.

We present the clinical case of a 34-year-old woman with a history of stage IV choriocarcinoma, after her diagnostic debut two years ago, a hysterectomy and resection of the right single pulmonary nodule with anatomopathological confirmation of both as uterine choriocarcinoma and pulmonary nodule compatible with metastatic choriocarcinoma, subsequently the patient received chemotherapy treatment with stability of her disease until now.

Conclusions: Leukopenia could be an objective prognostic factor for left colonic perforation. Although HP is the gold standard for septic left colonic perforation, it did not improve overall mortality of the patients without leukopenia. For such patients, PR or PA could be a good option for left colonic perforation. PMID: 32054246 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Kim JH, Choi PW, Um E, Jung SM, Shin YC, Jung SW, Kim JI, Heo TG, Lee MS, Jun H Abstract Purpose: Since insertion of foreign body (FB) into the anus is considered as taboo practice, the patients may impose therapeutic dilemma on attending surgeon. Herein, we performed present study to evaluate the clinical characteristics of patient with retained rectal FB in Koreans, and to suggest management guideline for such cases. Methods: We retrospectively investigated 14 patients between January 2006 and December 2018. We assessed demographic features, mechanism of FB insertion, clinical course between diagnosi...

Authors: Chung JS, Kwak HD, Ju JK Abstract Purpose: There has been a concern that the concept of enhanced recovery after surgery could affect other proposed quality measures, including the rate of readmission due to early discharge. We aimed to examine the 30-day readmission rate, risk factors associated with readmission after elective colorectal surgery for colon cancer, causes of readmission, disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS) in a single institution. Methods: We retrospectively investigated 292 patients who underwent elective colorectal surgery for colon cancer between 2010 and 2015. Base...
