Conclusion: Our work represents the initial experience in the liver transplantation technique for thrombectomy in distinct and well-selected patients with atrial tumor thrombi. The effectiveness of this approach needs further study. The video presentation of our research took place in March 2019 at the 34th Annual EAU Congress in Barcelona. PMID: 32612649 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: recommendations emphasize isolation, proper rest, sleep, nutrition, hydration, medications, and in the more severe cases, oxygen support, monitoring of vital signs, emotional support, and multiprofessional and individualized care. Medications should be used with caution due to a lack of evidence. Future research is needed to analyze the impact of the infection at the beginning of pregnancy and the psychological aspects of pregnant women infected with the virus.

CONCLUSIONS: in this theoretical reflection, we argue that in order to promote health equity and quality of care in the Unified Health System (Brazilian SUS) it is important to translate scientific knowledge to various practice settings and create opportunities for exchange with users of this knowledge, such as health professionals, managers, policy makers, patients, family members and other stakeholders.

Next week, we’ll be wrapping up Coronapod in its current form. Please fill out our short survey to let us know your thoughts on the show.In this episode:02:15 Simulating pandemicsResearchers have run numerous military-style simulations to predict the consequences of fictitious viral outbreaks. We discuss how these simulations work, what recommendations come out of them and if any of these warnings have been heeded.24:08 One good thingOur hosts pick out things that have made them smile in the last week, including audience feedback, the official end of the Ebola outbreak in the northeastern Democratic Republic of the C...
Abstract Although rubella is usually a mild, febrile illness, and up to 50% of rubella infections are asymptomatic, congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) can occur in the developing fetus of a pregnant woman infected with rubella virus (RV) in early pregnancy. After a rubella outbreak from early 2012 to late 2013 in Japan, another outbreak re-emerged from mid-2018 in the Tokyo metropolitan area and other large cities. In 2018, and up to epidemiological week (EW) 25 in 2019, more than 4000 rubella cases had been reported. Three CRS cases were also reported up to EW 24. Seroepidemiological surveys among Japanese residen...
Abstract In developed countries, it is said that "threats of infectious diseases are already thought as things of the past". However, as you can see in the case of Ebola hemorrhagic fever that occurred in West Africa, this is a big mistake. Among infectious diseases, only smallpox has been successfully eradicated worldwide. In addition to the three major infectious diseases of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, there is another group called emerging and reemerging infectious diseases. Recently, neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) have been listed as threats by the WHO, as have drug-resistant bacteria. T...
July 4, 2021. The finish line. Dr. Christopher Ohl made a bold prediction in his weekly address from Wake Forest Baptist Health. “I’m going to make a proclamation,” Ohl said. Conceding he could be wrong and that reporters could hold him accountable should he be mistaken, the infectious disease exper t at WFBH explained that with the development of better treatments and possibly a vaccine on the horizon, Covid-19 could be “over” a year from now. “I think a lot of our problem…
