Pulmonary thrombosis in acute organophosphate poisoning—Case report and literature overview of prothrombotic preconditioning in organophosphate toxicity

ConclusionAcute organophosphate poisoning treated with atropine showed a potential for inducing prothrombotic coagulation abnormalities, presented with PT. This life-threatening complication may additionally contribute to prolonged morbidity and mortality in OP poisonings, especially in patients with medical history of comorbidites.

Abstract Objectives: To investigate the association between clinical hematologic parameters and saphenous vein graft failure after on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. Methods: A total of 1950 consecutive patients underwent isolated on-pump coronary artery surgery between November 2010 and February 2013. Of these, 284 patients met our inclusion criteria; their preoperative clinical hematological parameters were retrospectively obtained for this cohort study. And of them, 109 patients underwent conventional coronary angiography after graft failure was revealed by coronary computed tomography angiography. The primary endp...

Abstract Objective: The main goal of our study was to assess the impact of vascular procedures on the activity of hemostatic and fibrinolytic pathways. Methods: We enrolled 38 patients with ≥ 45 years old undergoing surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm or peripheral artery disease under general or regional anesthesia and who were hospitalized at least one night after the procedure. Patients undergoing carotid artery surgery and those who had acute bypass graft thrombosis, cancer, renal failure defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate

Authors: Ambulkar S, Tayde P, Sarda P, Randive M Abstract Background: Panhypopituitarism due to compression of pituitary gland by internal carotid artery branch aneurysm is extremely rare. Case Presentation: A 70 year old male presented with history of fall and altered sensorium. Investigations revealed hyponatremia , hypopituitarism and sellar mass. Evaluation of mass by MRI and CT angiography revealed a large internal carotid artery branch aneurysm. PMID: 31325276 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Das S, Sarkar R, Paul R, Bagri P, Dey A, Mukherjee A, Das A Abstract Background: Chronic inflammation in spondyloarthropathy (SpA) is associated with accelerated atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD). Flow mediated vasodilatation (FMD) and carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) detects endothelial dysfunction and subclinical atherosclerosis respectively, responsible for atherosclerotic CVD. Objective: We aimed to examine the association of disease activity in SpA with surrogate markers of CVD, i.e., FMD and cIMT. Methods: Fifty patients of Axial SpA (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis Society-ASAS 2009 criteria) (

Conclusion: Septic CVT prognosis had better than non septic CVT. Hence, CVT presents with wide range of presentations and anticoagulation is the treatment. Septic CVT if intervened timely with proper antibiotics have better prognosis. Antibiotics are the mainstay of therapy for septic CVT. PMID: 31325261 [PubMed - in process]
