Background: Juvenile polyps (JPs) are the most common gastrointestinal polyps diagnosed in children. There is paucity of evidence differentiating polyp burden groups and the presence and significance of neoplastic changes. Methods: A retrospective chart review of patients, ages birth through 18 years with nonsyndromic JPs was performed from 2003 to 2017. Abstracted data included basic demographics, age, clinical presentation, colonoscopy findings, and pathology report. Slides of polyps with neoplasia were reviewed by a pathologist. Results: A total of 213 subjects underwent 326 procedures and 435 polypectomies. Sub...

ConclusionsAlong with previously recognized predictors of GDM and pre-GDM, FN ethnicity was an independent determinant of DIP in Saskatchewan from 1980 to 2013. Early maternal/child birth complications were increased in both FN and non-FN with DIP, but more so in FN. Effective DIP prevention strategies, and improvements in pre-conception, prenatal and perinatal care are required to remove ethnicity-based disparities in DIP rates and outcomes.

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Ashlay A. Huitema, Karen Harkness, Shiraz Malik, Neville Suskin, Robert S. McKelvieABSTRACTGlobally, there are approximately 26 million people living with heart failure (HF) and 50% of those patients suffer from HF with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), costing countries billions of dollars each year. Improvements in treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including advanced HF, have allowed an unprecedented number of patients to survive into old age. Despite these advances, patients with HF deteriorate and often require adva...

ConclusionsThe use of a novel case identification method provided a more complete description of the epidemiology of TAAD. The incidence and prevalence of TAAD is rising; more so in females over time. These data support increased resource allocation to thoracic aortic diseases clinics to ensure appropriate monitoring, treatment and follow up for the growing number patients with thoracic aortic disease.

Authors: Gupta AK, Carviel JL Abstract Background: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a condition that affects most people at some point in their life, yet few treatments are available. Use of photobiomodulation is ideal due to the safety profile and lack of serious adverse effects. Therefore, the efficacy of photobiomodulation for AGA therapy was investigated.Methods: A meta-analysis was used to elucidate treatment efficacy. Additionally, a sub-analysis was performed to determine if the type of device used or if use of lasers versus light emitting diodes (LEDs) significantly impacted results.Results: Using hair densit...

Authors: Sari A, Eroglu A Abstract BACKGROUND: Injections is a good alternative to conventional treatment-resistant cases with rotator cuff (RC) lesions before operation. Currently, different injection methods are used in RC lesions. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of different injection methods (platelet-rich plasma [PRP], corticosteroid [COR] and prolotherapy [PRO]) in RC tendon lesions. METHODS: One hundred and twenty-nine patients were divided into 4 groups as PRP, COR, PRO and the lidocaine group. Subacromial injection was applied to all groups. They were evaluated using the Visual Analogue Scale (...
