Mitral valve surgery with or without coronary bypass grafting: eight-year cohort study. N Z Med J. 2019 Aug 16;132(1500):50-58 Authors: Wang TKM, Liao YB, Choi D, Harmos S, Haydcok D, Gerber I Abstract AIMS: A significant minority of patients undergoing mitral valve surgery (MVR) have indication for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The risks of combination surgeries are not well appreciated and maybe more than additive. We compared the characteristics and outcomes of MVR+/-CABG performed at our centre. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing isolated MVR or with concurrent (MVR+)CABG at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 were compared for baseline and operative characteristics and outcomes in univariable and multivariable analyses. RESULTS: A total of 178 MVR+CABG and 407 MVR patients were included. MVR+CABG patients had higher age, CCS and NYHA Class, cardiopulmonary bypass time, and higher prevalence of urgent surgery, hypertension, diabetes, renal impairment, myocardial infarction/coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure/impaired ejection fraction and peripheral vascular disease, although lower prevalence of active endocarditis and previous valve surgery (all P
Conclusion: Severe acute pancreatitis during pregnancy leads to a high rate of fetal mortality.Gestational trimester, delayed diagnosis, HTG, MOF, gestational diabetes mellitus, and preeclampsia are predictors of fetal loss. Therefore, close monitoring is essential for pregnancies complicated with HTG, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. PMID: 32249649 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Granick MS, Tran BNN, Alvarez OM Abstract The surgical surgical debridement of wounds has evolved over the past 250 years. At that time, the amputation of extremities was recognized as a life-saving procedure to treat major wounds suffered in combat. This continued until after World War I. As the survival of patients with diabetes and other chronic conditions improved, and as advanced therapies were developed to meet the needs of an increasing number of patients with chronic wounds, debridement became a focal point of surgical wound care. It is now well-established that debridement enhances wound-healing a...
CONCLUSION: Diabetes-specific screening instruments and/or specific screening questions should be used in outpatient routine care for young adults in a standardized manner, especially among young women, and the results should be discussed with the patients to initiate further treatment.
