Axillo-subclavian dissection and pseudoaneurysm following inferior glenohumeral dislocation: Case report and literature review

ConclusionThis case represents a critical vascular injury from an unexpected mechanism. Inferior glenohumeral dislocations, regardless of injury mechanism, should raise the index of suspicion for vascular involvement. Endovascular repair in our patient was life-saving given her advanced age, acute blood loss anemia, rarity and severity of her injuries and multiple medical comorbidities.

Authors: Skalický T, Skalický A Abstract The presented case report describes primarily an unrecognized liver injury after the resuscitation with cardiac massage due to myocardial infarction. After myocardial revascularization, the hemodynamic instability and anaemia in the patient persisted. The performed CT scan confirmed a liver injury, namely the rupture of liver parenchyma with hemoperitoneum, which had to be treated surgically. It represents a complication of cardiac massage that occurs, though less frequently. Key words: resuscitation, liver trauma. PMID: 31941573 [PubMed - in process]

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02108964); enrolment to phase 1 is complete and the study is ongoing.FindingsBy Aug 31, 2017, 180 patients (116 [64%] women; median age 60 years (52–69); 116 [64%] with ECOG performance status 1) received nazartinib across seven dose levels: 75 mg (n=17), 100 mg (n=38), 150 mg (n=73), 200 mg (n=8), 225 mg (n=28), 300 mg (n=5), and 350 mg (n=11). Seven dose-limiting toxicities were observed in six (3%) patients who received 150 mg, 225 mg, or 350 mg nazartinib once daily. Although the maximum tolerated dose was not met, the recommended phase 2 dose was declared as 1...

In mammals, erythropoietin (EPO), produced in the kidney, is essential for bone marrow erythropoiesis, and hypoxia induction of EPO production provides for the important erythropoietic response to ischemic stress, such as during blood loss and at high altitude. Erythropoietin acts by binding to its cell surface receptor which is expressed at the highest level on erythroid progenitor cells to promote cell survival, proliferation, and differentiation in production of mature red blood cells. In addition to bone marrow erythropoiesis, EPO causes multi-tissue responses associated with erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) expression i...

Authors: Abuaisha M, El Masri R, Itani H, Antoun J Abstract Objectives: There are no evidence-based recommendations to screen for iron deficiency in non-anemic patients, even though symptoms may be present. The aim of this study is to measure the prevalence of iron deficiency (ID) without anemia in the general population aged 18-50 presenting to primary care along with the incidence and time to develop anemia in the iron-deficient population.Methods: A single-center retrospective chart review of patients who presented to family medicine clinics between June 2010 and March 2018 at the American University of Beirut M...

Authors: Zhao J, Chen J, Huang F, Wang J, Su W, Zhou J, Qi Q, Cao F, Sun B, Liu Z, Bellanti JA, Zheng S Abstract Accumulating evidence has revealed that human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) are emerging as a new line of mesenchymal stem cells and may have the potential to control or even treat autoimmune diseases through maintaining the balance between Th and Treg cells. Given that GMSCs have a robust immune regulatory function and regenerative ability, we investigated the effect of GMSCs on preventing T cell-mediated bone marrow failure (BMF) in a mouse model. We observed that GMSCs markedly improv...

Researchers here investigate the relationship between the protein complex mTORC1 and the aging of intestinal stem cells, leading to loss of function in the intestine. mTORC1 signaling increases with age in intestinal tissue and leads to exhaustion of the stem cell pool, as downstream mechanisms are triggered to suppress proliferation of these cells. Naturally, mTOR or mTORC1 inhibitors are capable of reducing this effect, though one should always compare all things related to mTOR with the effects of calorie restriction before becoming too excited by new findings. Calorie restriction acts to inhibit mTOR signaling, and the...

CONCLUSIONS: Antibodies (Abs) against antigens on platelets (PLTs), including glycoprotein IV (CD36), can cause PLT refractoriness. Transfusing PLTs to patients with anti-CD36 is challenging because of the rarity of CD36-negative (CD36-) donors and the possibility of additional HLA Abs. We report a case of PLT refractoriness due to anti-CD36 and HLA Abs. A 21-year-old man (group O, D+) with assumed drug-induced aplastic anemia received multiple PLT transfusions and developed severe PLT refractoriness. He was found to have anti-CD36 as well as HLA class I Abs, with a CD36- phenotype on both PLTs and monocytes. He was diagno...

eacute; G. Dórea Young children are particularly vulnerable to the chronic sequelae of anemia, including poor nutritional status. The aim of this study was to assess intestinal parasitic-infections and nutritional status (anemia and linear growth) in preschool children living in contemporary Amazonian communities. A cross-sectional study measured children’s intestinal parasites and hair-Hg (HHg)—biomarkers of fish consumption, hemoglobin levels, and growth (anthropometric Z-scores). Children came from traditional-living families (Itapuã), and tin-mining settlements (Bom Futuro) rep...

Current literature suggests that preoperative hematocrit levels may play an important role in determining risk for complications following THA. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of preoperative anemia status on 30-day complications following total hip arthroplasty.
