Authors: Stević M, Vlajković M, Veličković F, Stanojević G, Nestorović M, Petrović F Abstract A 69 year old patient was admitted to hospital with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage. The clinical presentation of the patient, except for bleeding, was dominated by the presence of neurofibromatosis type 1 - Von Recklinghausen disease. The patient was referred to multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy, which were performed without successful detection of the bleeding site. The MRI examination showed the existence of a tumor lo...
Conclusion: To facilitate transparent consent, single-centre rather than pooled outcome data should be utilized. PMID: 32223494 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Purpose of review Several imaging modalities exist for the assessment of Peyronie's disease. However, comprehensive recommendations for using these objective modalities based on large-scale evidence-based studies do not yet exist. Our objective is to evaluate current imaging techniques and provide a model that we follow in our clinic in the workup and management of Peyronie's disease. Recent findings Computed tomography and radiography excellently visualize penile plaque calcifications, and MRI adeptly identifies plaques in complex locations, such as the corporal septum. Ultrasonography has extensive applications in p...

Alan Towers wrote an instructive, poignant comment about the difficulty that he had understanding that his schizophrenic son could not be EXPECTED to “make sense”, if sense was defined by the standards that applied for Alan, or for the wider society. Because so many people who live with psychotic illness or substantial neurological impairment require that their affected loved ones operate by THEIR rules and THEIR logical constructs and world view, they often abandon their children, relatives and friends as uncorrectible and irrecoverable, as lost souls. I’ve had a conversation about this subject with a nu...
Bleeding complications during left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support pose anticoagulation challenges as risk of discontinuation of anticoagulation, even in the setting of bleeding, may pose an increased risk of subsequent LVAD hemolysis or thrombosis. We assessed whether discontinuation of anticoagulation in HM3 patients whose bleeding concerns preventing anticoagulation would adversely impact outcomes.
Enhanced platelet reactivity may play a role in the development and progression of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). Although aspirin is often a part of the medication regimen after heart transplantation (HT), limited evidence is available on its effects on CAV and related outcomes. In this large study, we sought to investigate whether aspirin treatment has an independent impact on CAV progression using coronary intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) follow-up studies and clinical outcomes after long-term follow-up post HT.
