Cancer risk, screening and surveillance in primary sclerosing cholangitis.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with PSC show significantly higher than average risk for the development of hepatobiliary and colonic malignancies including cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder carcinoma and colorectal carcinoma. Yearly ultrasound surveillance followed with more definitive cross sectional imaging is prudent to arrive in a timely diagnosis of carcinoma, reducing morbidity and mortality.

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: Nagpal SDS, Singh NP, Mishra P, Singh A Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common rheumatological condition affecting the joints and has a wide range of extra-articular manifestations. A 69 year old male, known case of rheumatoid arthritis presented to our OPD with right lower limb redness and swelling, and left axillary lymph node swelling. Lymph node biopsy revealed a high grade diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with co-expression of c-myc and bcl-2 (double expressor). RA increases the risk of both Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). The association with diffuse large B-cell lympho...
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) (
Authors: Kumar SSS, Palaniandavan S, Bhargavi MV, Gambeer AS, Nithyalakshmi G Abstract Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a common form of chronic autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and it often coexists with other autoimmune diseases, but Hashimoto's thyroiditis associated with an autosomal dominant neurofibromatosis type 1 is exceedingly rare. A 30-year-old woman presented with complaints of headache for 1 year on and off. Physical examination revealed nodular swelling in the neck, cafe-au-lait spots, and neurofibromas covering the entire surface of her body. Her thyroid hormones were within normal limits. Thyroid ultraso...

Conclusion: Ultrasonography carried out within 1 hour of admission to the ICU plays a major role in correct diagnosis of the type of shock and subsequent patient management. The best ultrasonographic predictors for diagnosis of each type of shock, can help the clinician to start timely specific interventions in critical care settings for each type of shock.
