Diabetic Gastroenteropathy: A Complication of Diabetes Mellitus. Acta Med Indones. 2019 Jul;51(3):263-271 Authors: Kurniawan AH, Suwandi BH, Kholili U Abstract Diabetic gastroenteropathy is a common complication in prolonged diabetic patients, particularly patients with poor glycemic control or other complications, including all form of diabetic complication on the gastrointestinal tract, which prompts various symptoms of heartburn, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, even constipation, diarrhea, and fecal incontinence. The underlying pathophysiology of this complication manifestations are different on each organ or symptom, but may include autonomic nervous system neuropathy, loss of Interstitial Cell of Cajal as gastric muscle pacemaker leading to dysmotility, impair of liquid transportation and motoric function, as well as hyperglycemia causing oxidative stress, and other factors like Insulin-Growth Factor I inducing smooth muscle atrophy. Diabetic gastroenteropathy is one of major morbidity on diabetes mellitus patients. Patients with this complication need to be well diagnosed and ruled out other diagnosis possibilities. Management of the complication includes resolving main symptoms and maintaining good glycemic control.

CONCLUSION: Pain impacts multiple domains of musician's lives, and therefore must be addressed holistically by healthcare providers. While musicians are finding that it is becoming more acceptable to discuss their pain, pain is still not adequately addressed. Understanding the experience of musicians with playing-related pain could help healthcare professionals to better serve this unique population. PMID: 31800671 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Kleeman-Forsthuber LT, Dennis DA, Jennings JM Abstract Cannabis has gained widespread public advocacy since its legalization in several states with recent evidence suggesting that its self-reported use has increased in patients undergoing a primary total joint arthroplasty. The endocannabinoid system has been proposed to play a role in decreasing the inflammatory cascade and enhancing pain management. For these reasons, interest has emerged in the orthopaedic community as a potential treatment or adjunct to treatment in many musculoskeletal conditions. However, the evidence to date is scant and precludes r...

Authors: Chen S, Ji R, Shi X, Wang Z, Zhu D Abstract The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy, safety, and prognostic factors of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) in Chinese hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Patients (n=102) diagnosed as primary HCC were consecutively enrolled in this retrospective cohort study. Treatment responses were assessed following the modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors. Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were evaluated, and adverse events (AEs) as well as liver function-related laboratory indexes of all DEB-T...

However, it is not clear how safe this treatment is for elderly patients, especially Asians, who are known to be more insulin deficient than Caucasian individuals with a similar insulin resistance. Here, we report a case concerning an elderly patient wi...
