The Prevalence of Non-Syndromic Orofacial Clefts and Associated Congenital Heart Diseases of a Tertiary Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Conclusion: This study highlights the recognition of the associated congenital heart disease with non-syndromic orofacial cleft patients. Global screening protocols designed for newborns with non-syndromic orofacial cleft are needed to eliminate late diagnosis of critical congenital heart diseases which might present operative risks of anesthesia and/or surgical procedures.

Authors: Rong LQ, Neuburger PJ, Kim J, Devereux RB Abstract Global longitudinal strain (GLS) has emerged as a valuable diagnostic and prognostic tool for evaluating left ventricular (LV) function. GLS has been shown to be a more sensitive marker of LV dysfunction than LV ejection fraction alone and have prognostic impact in non-surgical cardiac populations. GLS, is validated, reproducible, and easily obtained from 2-dimensional speckle- tracking echocardiography. While there is strong evidence for using GLS in clinical decision- making in non-surgical populations, there is less summarized evidence on using GLS in t...

Authors: Oszukowska M, Kozłowska M, Kaszuba A Abstract Introduction: Psoriasis is considered as a risk factor for atherosclerosis and contributes to myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease and brain stroke. Aim: To estimate the atherogenic potential of psoriasis by analysing antioxidative and prooxidative factors (paraoxonase-1, α-tocopherol, uric acid, homocysteine), compare levels of these parameters between groups of psoriatic patients and healthy individuals as well as to analyse the impact of psoriasis severity and duration on the factors under the study and to define correlation between the m...

Propofol suppresses the progression of non‑small cell lung cancer via downregulation of the miR‑21‑5p/MAPK10 axis. Oncol Rep. 2020 May 21;: Authors: Wu X, Li X, Xu G Abstract Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for>80% of lung cancer cases and is the leading cause of cancer‑associated mortality worldwide. Propofol is an anesthetic drug frequently used during tumor resection. It is also known to exert inhibitory effects on cancer. Although the role of propofol in NSCLC has been reported, its underlying mechanisms remain unknown. The present study aimed therefore to investigate the m...

He's talking so obviously moving air initially but definitely has the hypoxic hue wayy before they let off of him. Seriously, what were they thinking? Autopsy apparently says no sign of strangulation. But I'm thinking gradual desaturation -> LOC -> cardiac arrest. Thoughts? Found the full unedited video here:

CONCLUSION: Almost all patients' clinical features were associated with 18q- syndrome. There are very few reported cases with similar genotype possibly caused by a de novo unequal recombination mechanism. PMID: 32468472 [PubMed - in process]

Heart disease is the leading cause of mortality in adult women. Beyond the traditional risk factors of obesity, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia, women with the pregnancy complications of preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, prematurity, and low birth weight for gestational age (fetal growth restriction) are at higher risk for later development of cardiovascular disease. Education of women and providers about the association of pregnancy complications and cardiovascular disease should begin in the postpartum period. Postpartum cardiovascular risk screening and lifestyle modifications should be considered standard of care ...
