Abstract Posterior reversible encephalopathy (PRES) is a clinical syndrome characterized by headaches, seizures, cortical blindness, and altered mental status up to coma and by a radiological syndrome defined by edematous alteration on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)-Scans of the white matter. In the following, we present the case of a 73 years old post-operative patient with PRES in the context of hypertension and endocarditis with E. coli. The initial presentation included a series of seizures, sopor, and cortical blindness. In MRI-Scans a marked cerebral edema could be identified. After successful tr...

DISCUSSION: Hypercalcemia is a rare but possible primary presenting symptom of ovarian cancer. In these patients, serum calcium measurements could possibly serve as a tumor marker for disease. PMID: 32069206 [PubMed - in process]

We report central invasive haemodynamic parameters at rest and exercise during a 3 year follow‐up after HTx in a sub‐study of the SCandiavian Heart transplant Everolimus De novo stUdy with earLy calcineurin inhibitor avoidancE trial. We hypothesized that the nephroprotective properties, the less development of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV), and the antifibrotic properties of EVR, in comparison with CNI‐based immunosuppression, would demonstrate favourable invasive haemodynamic profiles in patients at rest and during exercise.Methods and resultsNinety of 115 HTx recipients randomized to EVR or CNI treatment per...

ConclusionsIsolated agenesis of the corpus callosum is not innocuous, and patients with this defect require a strict neurocognitive follow-up. We provide an informative reference tool useful for the postnatal neuropsychological screening of patients with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum.

ConclusionsWe found a seasonal variation in the risk of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy in a large cohort of Danish nulliparous women. The highest risk was seen in women with the estimated date of conception in June and August, that is, during summer. Seasonal variation in vitamin D status may explain this association.

Authors: Somannavar VG, Williams GC Abstract Objective: The present study intend to determine the association of anatomical site and clinical outcome in intracerebral hemorrhage patients with or without intraventricular extension. Methods: The present 1-year cross-sectional study included 56 patients presenting with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage with or without intraventricular extension. Relevant data were collected through a detailed interview with either the patient or the attender. Clinical examination was performed with the help of a predesigned and pretested proforma. Anatomical site of intracerebr...

It is unclear how microangiopathic changes in skeletal muscle vary among systemic vascular pathologies. We therefore analyzed the capillary fine structure in skeletal muscle from patients with arterial hypertension (HYPT), diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2DM) or intermittent claudication – peripheral arterial disease (IC/PAD). Tablet-based image analysis (TBIA) was carried out to largely re-evaluate 5,000 transmission electron micrographs of capillaries from 126 vastus lateralis biopsies of 75 individuals (HYPT, T2DM or IC/PAD patients as well as healthy individuals before and after endurance exercise training) used in pr...
