Criteria for Clinically Relevant Bleeding in Critically Ill Children: An International Survey*

Conclusions: This international survey provides a better understanding of the factors that influence the pediatric intensivists’ assessment of the clinical relevance of bleeding in critically ill children. It provides the foundation for the development of a validated, diagnostic definition of clinically relevant bleeding in this population.

Publication date: Available online 19 March 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Soomin Han, Younghun KimAbstractObesity is one of the most serious health problems, and liposuction among the treatment strategies is the most common and popular regimen, but it induces various undesired side-effects. Here, we synthesized a polypyrrole (PPy)-coated hollow gold nanoshell (HAuNS@PPy) that minimized these side-effects of liposuction (pain, bleeding, infection, and long recovery times). To improve biocompatibility and photothermal conversion efficiency, PPy was coated on the surfac...

ConclusionTopical HC produced significant reductions in time for haemostasis and was clinically effective in controlling haemorrhage from extraction wounds in children. HC may be favourably utilised by paediatric dentists, especially with pre-cooperative or special-healthcare-needs patients, improving patient care.

ConclusionIn patients suffering from severe CS due to AMI, the use of Impella is not associated with improved short-time survival but with higher complications rates compared to IABP and medical treatment. Better patient selection avoiding Impella implantation in futile situations or in possible lower risk CS might be necessary to elucidate possible advantages of Impella in future studies.

Authors: Ceylan B, Yilmaz M, Beköz HS, Ramadan S, Ertan Akan G, Mert A Abstract Invasive aspergillosis is a severe infection that generally involves the lungs. Primary gastrointestinal aspergillosis is the least common form of invasive aspergillosis. A patient aged 65 years developed a febrile neutropenic episode following an autologous stem cell transplant for plasmacytoid variant diffuse large B-cell gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He had abdominal pain on the second day of the febrile neutropenic episode and ileus occurred on the sixth day. His general condition deteriorated despite broad spectrum antibioti...

Authors: Reißberg S, Hartmann M Abstract Epistaxis is a common ear, nose, and throat emergency, but rarely a direct cause for hospital admission. Patients who receive inpatient treatment usually suffer from recurrent posterior epistaxis. Despite otolaryngologic measures such as posterior packing or surgery, bleeding may recur or continue or the source may not be surgically accessible. For these patients, endovascular therapy is a real, sometimes the only, treatment option. In addition to idiopathic causes of posterior epistaxis, the cause may also be symptomatic. In this case, the cause must be iden...

Nicolau, Vivek RaoAbstractThe prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) is rising globally and in Canada. Besides being a risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease, DM is also a marker of poor prognosis in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), increasing the risks for both ischemic and bleeding complications. Patients with DM have a high prevalence of multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD) and robust evidence has supporte...

Authors: Odelberg N, Cengiz Y, Jänes A, Hennings J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is a commonly performed surgical procedure with a low complication rate. It is performed either as an acute or as an elective procedure. Most elective LCs are performed on nonlethal diseases and this is why good quality is important. Our study compared the quality of LC in two surgical units in northern Sweden (Sundsvall and Östersund) which use different clinical structures (subspecialised vs. general surgery) and surgical techniques (ultrasound fundus first vs. conventional diathermy). The study a...

Conclusions. In NCPH patients, spleen size may predict risk of HRV at gastroscopy within 12 months. LSM and platelet count are not useful to assess risk of HRV in NCPH. PMID: 30881946 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The experimental treatment strategy of one-month DAPT followed by 23 months of ticagrelor alone did not result in a significant reduction in the rates of site-reported POCE or NACE, when compared to the reference treatment. PMID: 30888959 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
