(WASHINGTON) — For the first time, U.S. health regulators have endorsed a brand of tobacco pouches as less harmful than cigarettes, a decision that could open the door to other less risky options for smokers. The milestone announcement on Tuesday from the Food and Drug Administration marks the government’s first backing of a so-called “reduced risk” tobacco product. FDA regulators stressed, though, that the Swedish Match pouches are not safe, just less harmful, and that all tobacco products pose risks. The pouches will still bear mandatory government warnings that they can cause mouth cancer, gum di...

Semin Neurol 2019; 39: 620-639 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1693006The inherited neuropathies are a common and heterogeneous group of slowly progressive disorders affecting motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves. These hereditary conditions can be confined to the peripheral nervous system, termed the primary hereditary neuropathies, or can occur as part of a multisystem disease. Identification of systemic involvement is necessary to distinguish the primary and secondary hereditary neuropathies to prevent the misdiagnosis of potentially treatable entities. Recent genetic and technological advances have dramatically improved our unders...

ConclusionsOur results showed that the number of relapses tended to be lower despite a significantly different lower amount of steroid after initiating hemodialysis compared with before initiating hemodialysis, and the burn-out phenomenon specific to uremic patients was inferred. We believe that early tapering of steroids should be considered to avoid death rather than focusing only on relapse.

Burn injuries are severe, traumatic, and physically devastating, often leading to a high risk of morbidity and mortality.According to the World Health Organization, about 180,000 deaths are caused by burns every year. The mortality rate of burn jury patients drastically increases according to the burned area and the rate overcomes 10% when burned area is wider than 30% of total body surface area [1]. Burnsare not a single pathophysiological process, but an event affecting numerous organ systems structurally and functionally [2].After burn injury, destruction of skin tissues results in malfunction of microcirculation, gener...

Sometime during the 90s, I listened to an audio program that explained the differences between matchers and mismatchers.Matchers are “yes, and” people who see the upsides of an idea more prominently than the downsides. If you share a new idea with them, they’ll see how the idea could work and may offer suggestions for what else you could do to make it even better.Mismatchers are “wait, but” people who see the downsides of an idea more prominently than the upsides. If you share a new idea with them, they see what could go wrong and may point out the risks and drawbacks.I’m a matcher. I fi...

It creates four rectangular burn surfaces intercalated by three unburned zones prone to secondary burn progression. While burn progression is a tri-dimensional phenomenon, of which the vertical extension from the superficial to deeper tissue layer is clinically most relevant, the models initial focus was mainly on the horizontal s...

Both data on morphological aspects of the newly-formed tissue, and clinical trials comparing different templates, are few. The goal of this study was to prospectively analyze the outcome of randomized patients treated with two of the existing templates, followed b...

We describe the case of an 11-year-old female presenting with Cushingoid features in the setting of a left-sided flank mass. Her presentation and evaluation suggested a paraneoplastic ectopic ACTH syndrome. She underwent open left radical nephrectomy and final pathology confirming a high-grade NET with nodal metastasis. Although exceedingly rare, ACTH-secreting tumors of the kidney can cause significant morbidity and mortality and so we recommend it be included in the differential diagnosis of pediatric renal masses.
