Deep vein thrombosis during long-term surveillance of patients with liver transplantation

ConclusionsThere are no specific guideline recommendations regarding acute DVT treatment in long-term surveillance after liver transplantation. Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), unfractionated heparin (UFH) and vitamin K antagonist (VKA) are the anticoagulants used in specific complications post-transplantation. The safety and the efficacy of direct anticoagulants in liver transplantation recipients need to be assessed in future trials. Given that long-term survival of liver transplantation is much improved, complications associated with transplantation and ageing require appropriate cardiovascular guidelines.

Conclusions Women with newly diagnosed breast cancer are likely to experience higher rates of work-related disability compared with health counterparts. Health care providers should provide intervention to parallel the shift in symptoms that lead to higher work-related disability and job cessation.

This study evaluated the effectiveness of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for the assessment of skeletal muscle perfusion in diabetes mellites. MATERIAL AND METHODS Electronic databases (Embase, Google Scholar, Ovid, and PubMed) were searched for required articles, and studies were selected by following pre-determined eligibility criteria. Meta-analyses of mean differences or standardized mean differences (SMD) were performed to evaluate the significance of difference in contrast-enhanced ultrasonography measured muscle perfusion indices between patients with diabetes and healthy individuals or between basal and final va...

This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic significance of plasma fibrinogen, serum albumin, the mean platelet volume (MPV), and the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) who underwent surgical resection. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study included 110 patients with LSCC who underwent surgical resection between January 2008 to June 2015. Clinicopathologic and demographic data were recorded. Preoperative levels of plasma fibrinogen, serum albumin, MPV, and NLR were measured, and all patients underwent postoperative follow-up. The Kaplan-Meier method was used ...

Authors: Niewiński G, Graczyńska A, Morawiec S, Raszeja-Wyszomirska J, Wójcicki M, Zieniewicz K, Główczyńska R, Grąt M Abstract BACKGROUND Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is the standard of care for end-stage liver disease. The Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) was originally created to assess the survival rate of patients with chronic diseases, although it was modified and adopted in OLT recipients as CCI-OLT. MATERIAL AND METHODS In total of 248 consecutive liver transplant recipients with viral cirrhosis in 98 (39.5%) patients were included. CCI-OLT was calculated assigning a weight of 3...

Conclusions: The mFI-5 is an independent predictor of postoperative morbidity and mortality in elderly patients undergoing surgery for hip fractures. This clinical tool can be used by hospitals and surgeons to identify high-risk patients, accurately council patients and families with transparency, and guide perioperative care to optimize patient outcomes. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

Objectives: To evaluate the results obtained using unilateral external fixation as a definitive treatment for humeral shaft fractures and to identify possible predictors of radiographic and functional outcomes. Design: Retrospective study. Setting: One large metropolitan hospital. Patients: A consecutive cohort of 107 patients who underwent external fixation for 109 humeral shaft fractures. Main Outcome Measures: Union rate, time to fracture healing, and functional assessment with disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand questionnaire, Constant score, Mayo Elbow Performance Index, and return to prefracture...
