Refugee Week 2019 – Abelarda’s story

“Without Doctors of the World’s support in the Mother and Child Centre in Yemen, we could have died! I was in my ninth month of pregnancy and I was bleeding. We had a similar case in our village before Doctors of the World came, where the pregnant girl had died, and I was so scared that the same thing might happen to me. I was admitted to the Mother and Child Centre and was advised to have a caesarean operation. Doctors of the World’s doctors and referral team transported me to a hospital where I had my operation and gave birth to my healthy baby. I was discharged after one week. May Allah reward Doctors of the World.” The post Refugee Week 2019 – Abelarda’s story appeared first on Doctors of the World.

We report a case of a 39-yr-old woman who developed abnormal uterine bleeding 44 mo after her last recognized pregnancy. An endometrial curettage specimen demonstrated an APSN with some features concerning for an intermediate trophoblastic tumor. A hysterectomy specimen demonstrated residual APSN with foci consistent with emerging PSTT and ETT. This case illustrates the earliest form of PSTT and ETT arising in association with an APSN and supports interpretation of APSN as an intermediary lesion between typical PSN and intermediate trophoblastic tumors.

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1702918This is a review of the evidence for the use of different platelet count thresholds prior to invasive procedures and surgery. This review will focus on three procedures that are common in patients with thrombocytopenia—central venous catheter insertion, liver biopsy, and lumbar punctures and epidural catheters—as well as highlighting the lack of evidence for more major surgery. Tunneled or untunneled central venous catheters are low-risk procedures and can be safely performed without any intervention when the platelet count is 20 × 109/L or abov...

CONCLUSION: International Literature is very scant about the treatment of patients affected by hemorrhoids in particular situations. A word of caution and concern even about the indication for minor outpatient procedures must be expressed in these patients, in order to avoid possible lifethreatening complications. The first line treatment is the conservative medical approach associated with the treatment of the primary disease. PMID: 32250231 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Pain, urinary retention and bleeding remain the most frequent complications after surgery for hemorrhoids; however, special situations must be taken into account in order to choose the best technique to prevent more severe complications.

Nov ák, Tibor / Németh, Gábor / Kozinszky, Zoltan / Urbán, Edit / Gorzó, István / Radnai, MártaPage 165 - 170Purpose: The aim of the present study was to analyse the role of the main diagnostic signs of poor periodontal status, probing depth (PD) ≥4 mm and bleeding on probing (BOP) ≥50%, both simultaneously and individually in preterm birth (PB) and their effect on the birth weight (BW). Prematurity is a major health concern and it is the leading contributing factor to neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Conflicting results exist on the relation between poor ma...

CONCLUSION: Anti-FXa levels did not have an influence on pregnancy and fetal outcomes. The effect of LMWH on pregnancy outcomes may not be due to anticoagulant activity but other mechanisms. PMID: 32236912 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI[1] major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...

Skin tags are common, benign skin growths that hang from the surface of the skin on a thin piece of tissue called a stalk. They are made up of many components, including fat, collagen fibers, and sometimes nerve cells and small blood vessels. It’s possible that these collagen fibers and blood vessels become wrapped up inside a layer of skin, leading to the formation of a skin tag. The medical term for a skin tag is acrochordon, and they can also be referred to as soft fibromas or fibroepithelial polyps. Skin tags are frequently found in areas of friction on the skin, such as the neck, underarms, under the breast...

The pregnant women that had been followed up for hepatic cirrhosis were classified as compensated disease and decompensated disease. Eleven cases were included in this period. Results: The mean age of cases was 33.5 ± 5.5 years. The mean gravida number was 3.2 &plusm...
