Conclusion: The most important finding of one-month ticagrelor consumption were dyspnea, bleeding, and hypersensitivity reaction. No case of bradycardia and stent thrombosis was detected. In our study , iranian population has more susceptibility to dyspnea than PLATO result. The rate of drug discontinuation in this series of cases was 6.4 %.

Conclusion: The knowledge, attitude, and practice of EMS staff regarding bleeding control were moderate, positive and appropriate, and incomplete, respectively. Since bleeding is a life threatening status and EMS staff skills are critical in this issue, it seems that we need to provide continuous education in this regard.

Conclusion: Our data showed that adjuvant CAPOX induced severe enterocolitis in 13.1% of patients. In addition, we found that advanced age, right colectomy and concurrent use of ARB were statistically associated with these events. Awareness of these factors could be easily incorporated into the treatment decision and patient orientation. PMID: 32256697 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Brancadoro M, Dimitri M, Boushaki MN, Staderini F, Sinibaldi E, Capineri L, Cianchi F, Biffi Gentili G, Menciassi A Abstract Introduction: During the last two decades, many surgical procedures have evolved from open surgery to minimally invasive surgery (MIS). This limited invasiveness has motivated the development of robotic assistance platforms to obtain better surgical outcomes. Nowadays, the da Vinci robot is a commercial tele-robotic platform widely used for different surgical applications.Material and methods: In this work, the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK), namely the research version of the da Vinci...

Purpose of review The present article aims to provide clinicians with an overview of coagulation testing in individuals with liver disease, to discuss available procoagulants and the rationale for their use, and to provide management strategies in a variety of common clinical scenarios. Recent findings Clinicians and researchers are gaining an increased understanding of the shortfalls of assessing bleeding risk using traditional tests of coagulation. The use of global tests of clot formation, including viscoelastic testing and thrombin generation analysis, continues to evolve and guide the management of these patients...

Purpose of review Over the past decade, imaging modalities and serological tests have emerged as important tools in the evaluation of liver diseases, in many cases supplanting the use of liver biopsy and histological examination. Nonetheless, the accuracy and diagnostic value of these methods may not always be conclusive and the assessment of liver histology often remains the gold standard for diagnostic evaluation. The purpose of this review is to summarize the current role of liver biopsy in contemporary hepatology practice. Recent findings Technical factors were found to influence the diagnostic value of liver biop...

Authors: Tomescu DR, Scarlatescu E, Bubenek-Turconi ŞI Abstract The purpose of Goal Directed Therapy (GDT) is to improve patient outcome by the optimization of hemodynamic status, as it is considered that many perioperative complications are related to microcirculatory disturbance due to an imbalance between oxygen delivery and consumption. The application of GDT protocols incorporating the assessment and optimization of patients' intravascular status should theoretically lead to a reduction in perioperative bleeding and transfusion requirements, as both hypervolemia and hypovolemia and their consequences such as ...

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.

Extragonadal pelvic yolk sac tumor (YST) in postpubertal female patients is a rare malignant neoplasm with potentially 2 distinct histogenetic pathways, and no clear treatment algorithm, especially in young patients desiring future fertility. Here we report a case of extragonadal YST arising within the myometrium in a 30-yr-old nulligravid woman. The patient presented with heavy and irregular bleeding, and imaging studies showed an 8.2 cm uterine mass, most consistent with a degenerating uterine leiomyoma. The patient underwent abdominal myomectomy, and intraoperative frozen section evaluation revealed a high-grade ...
