Portal hypertensive gastropathy is associated with iron deficiency anemia.
CONCLUSION: The CTP score but not HVPG or MELD were risk factors for severe PHG. Importantly, anemia and especially IDA are significantly more common in patients with severe PHG. PMID: 31912289 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Tomiyama H, Shiina K Abstract The brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (brachial-ankle PWV), which is measured simply by wrapping pressure cuffs around the four extremities, is a simple marker to assess the stiffness of the medium- to large- sized arteries. The accuracy and reproducibility of its measurement have been confirmed to be acceptable. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease, especially advanced age and high blood pressure, are reported to be associated with an increase of the arterial stiffness. Furthermore, arterial stiffness might be involved in a vicious cycle with the development/progression o...
Conclusions: The visual field is more clearly exposed during submucosal tunneling when using the near-focus mode than when using traditional procedures. This technique appears to be more efficient and secure than the traditional ESTT procedure. PMID: 32449398 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Watanabe S, Oda J, Nakahara I, Matsumoto S, Suyama Y, Hasebe A, Suzuki T, Tanabe J, Suyama K, Hirose Y Abstract Mechanical thrombectomy using a retrograde approach is performed for tandem occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA). In our patient, a guiding catheter was easily passed by the stenosed lesion despite severe stenosis at the ICA origin. Therefore, we aimed to recanalize the occlusion of the terminal ICA without angioplasty for the stenosed lesion. When contrast was injected, a massive extravasation of contrast from the C2 portion of the ICA was observed. It was speculated that the bleeding ...

Authors: Choi HJ, Moon KW, Kim HO, Lee YA, Hong SJ, Jung JY, Kim HA, Suh CH, Ha YJ, Kim IJ, Lee J, Park EK, Lee SG, Seo MR, Baek HJ, Choi ST, Song JS Abstract BACKGROUND: We purposed to evaluate the seasonality and associated factors of the incidence of gout attacks in Korea. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled patients with gout attacks who were treated at nine rheumatology clinics between January 2015 and July 2018 and followed them for 1-year. Demographic data, clinical and laboratory features, and meteorological data including seasonality were collected. RESULTS: Two hundred-five patients (men, 94.1%) we...
