Conclusions: In conclusion, appropriately targeted IC in the management of children with GI symptoms is a safe, fast, and useful investigation. TI intubation rates of 100% are achievable and desirable and can be conducted quickly. Poor bowel preparation impacts negatively on this and IC duration may be faster in younger children. High diagnostic yields have been recorded in patients with a clinical suspicion of IBD. Diagnostic yield in isolated recurrent abdominal pain is low. Training to excellence in pediatric IC should be a persistent goal.

ConclusionThough personalized treatment can be formalized to some extent, it is expected that medical treatment skills and management by tacit knowledge are affected in individualized treatment based on standardized treatment. Medical institutions and medical staff are the main body sharing and deploying measures to disseminate and utilize medical devices, cooperating with them can be an effective management of standardized and individualized treatment.

Authors: Chatterjee S, Dubey S, Lahiri D, Ray BK Abstract Recent trial data have expanded the horizons of newer indications of non vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOAC). Most recently they are being evaluated for use in embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS). ESUS are particularly known for their recurrences. So, identifying the causes and treating those etiological factors are the keys to secondary prevention of ESUS. Although traditional experts still opine for the use of antiplatelets for secondary prevention of ESUS as for other causes of embolic stroke, there are still room for improvement in delivery of ...

This study was conducted to investigate the short-term effects of a self-ligating appliance for orthodontic treatment of severe adult periodontitis. Thirty patients diagnosed as severe periodontitis were recruited at Nanjing Stomatological Hospital, P. R.China, between January 2012 and January 2016. General clinical and demographic data were collected from the patients, all of whom were treated with a self-ligating appliance. Probing pocket depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing (BOP) and plaque index (PI) were measured before appliance placement, and at 1 and 3 months after appliance placement, ...

This study reports a cohort of 16 patients with APS, who underwent oral surgery between 2010 and 2017 at the Nagasaki University Hospital. Because oral antithrombotic therapy was continued in the perioperative period, all wounds were strictly closed by suturing to prevent postoperative bleeding. Perioperative laboratory dates and medications were assessed. All patients achieved local postoperative hemostasis and did not exhibit systemic complications. Moreover, there were no postoperative systemic and/or local infections. Oral surgeons should suture oral wounds and ensure local hemostasis to prevent postoperative bleeding....

In this report, a personal view is provided on the current achievements and challenges with unresolved issues regarding the viral and transfusion safety of blood in the UK and Europe. Advances in plasma fractionation processes and the use of alternative strategies to reshape treatment of bleeding disorders are also explored. The relationships between the cellular storage lesion and transfusion outcomes using newer tools such as -omics are explored. The use of some newer developments in the promising areas of diagnosis, development, and research [DDR] strategies for improving healthcare of both donors and recipients are dis...

ConclusionIn a case-matched comparison, continuation of aspirin during laparoscopic colorectal surgery did not increase perioperative complications. In laparoscopic colorectal surgery, continuation of aspirin is an acceptable strategy for patients with thromboembolic risk caused by interruption of APT.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe diagnosis of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) is based on evaluation of risk factors and imaging findings. Ultrasound (US) is widely available and relatively cheap; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is expensive and not universally available. We review performance, interpretation, accuracy, and pitfalls of MRI, and whether it has a role in the management of PAS.Recent FindingsRecent meta-analyses showed excellent diagnostic accuracy in depth of placental invasion. Specific MRI features (intraplacental T2 dark bands, myometrial disruption, uterine bulge, and uteroplacental or parametrial hypervasc...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe effect of gender on use of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is not well established. The purpose of this review is to understand gender-based differences in response to DAPT, so that treatment of ACS can be optimized in women to prevent ischemic events while minimizing bleeding risk.Recent FindingsThere are innate gender differences in platelet reactivity and response. However, it is unknown if this translates into differences in clinical outcomes. In all major studies evaluating the effect of DAPT in ACS, women are underrepresented. Hence, the resu...
