Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy Performed by RNs: A Review of Clinical Practice

Conclusions: There is limited evidence in the literature supporting the practice of RN-performed bone marrow procedures. Our review revealed a robust program with excellent clinical and diagnostic outcomes that can be emulated by other institutions interested in pursuing RN-performed bone marrow procedures.

Conclusion In conclusion, this study wants to stress the importance of early diagnosis. As in the majority of primary immunodeficiency diseases, the prognosis of LAD3 is extremely dependent on early age diagnosis, with timely management of bacterial infections and consideration for HSCT. In addition, this autosomal recessive disorder has high incidence in areas with high rate of consanguineous marriages. Therefore, broadening the spectrum of known mutations underlying the phenotype of such a life-threatening disease can help offering and performing better genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis. Ethics Statement This ...

In conclusion, we showed hypermethylation of CpGs as a novel mechanism of action for DNMTi agents and identified 638 hypermethylated molecular targets (CpGs) common to decitabine and azacytidine therapy. These novel results suggest that hypermethylation of CpGs should be considered when predicting the DNMTi responses and side effects in cancer patients. Introduction DNA methyltransferase inhibitors (DNMTi) are widely used as chemical tools for hypomethylating the genome, with an aim to understand the role of DNA methylation in multiple processes (e.g., X-chromosome inactivation and DNA imprinting) and as an anti-ca...

We report the case of a patient with acute myeloid leukemia who developed retroperitoneal hematoma after the procedure. The bleeding was stopped with endovascular embolization and coiling. This case raises several issues about the standards for bone marrow biopsies and discusses the approach to patients with bleeding risk factors. We also provide a literature review.Oncol Res Treat

In conclusion, AUB secondary to AA can be acute and severe. Hemostasis is more difficult due to progressive pancytopenia. For young women with future fertility desire, LNG-IUS following hysteroscopic resection of endometrial functional layer is a safe and effective way against endometrial ablation or hysterectomy.

TAFRO syndrome, a rare systemic inflammatory disease, can lead to multiorgan failure without appropriate treatment. Although thrombocytopenia is frequently seen in patients with TAFRO syndrome, little is known about its pathogenesis. Moreover, while recent studies have reported the presence of an anterior mediastinal mass in some patients, the pathological status of this remains unclear. Here, we report a case of fatal bleeding in a patient with TAFRO syndrome accompanied by an anterior mediastinal mass. A 55-year-old female was transferred to our hospital with a 2-week history of fever, epistaxis, and dyspnea. Laboratory ...

Abstract TAFRO syndrome and acquired hemophilia A (AHA) are rare, life-threatening diseases; however, the relationship between these two diseases is unknown. A 25-year-old man was transferred to our hospital because of bleeding tendency accompanied by multiple organ failure with generalized edema, massive pleural effusion, and ascites. He was diagnosed with AHA. Bypass therapy for hemostasis and cyclophosphamide with prednisolone to eradicate possible inhibitors were provided. However, he suffered from cardiopulmonary arrest. Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) was initiated as rescue thera...
