Impact of legislative change on waiting time for women accessing surgical abortion services in a rural hospital in the Northern Territory.
CONCLUSIONS: Results demonstrate potential for changes in service provision of abortion in the NT with increased choice, patient-centred care and reduced waiting times. This audit demonstrated the possibility to move the majority of abortion services into primary health care leading to cost savings. PMID: 31916255 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The patient had undergone a surgery for right renal cell carcinoma and colon cancer 6 years prior. We attempted endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration under non-invasive positiv...
We examined the lung field through X-ray fluoroscopy and found that the detached opaque tip was located in the right middle lung field. We re-inserted the bronchoscope, and successfully recovered it using transbronchial biopsy forceps. The rate of complications in EBUS-GS is low, and the complication presented in this report is rare. Physicians should exercise caution when performing this procedure and carefully check the condition of the kit to reduce the risk of such complications.

CONCLUSIONS: GC treatment has implications in CVR, despite in SSc GC doses administered are lower than in other autoimmune diseases (in our cohort even prednisone ≤10 mg daily was associated with ED). GC may be associated with an early vascular damage in these patients, which could lead to changes in FMD, ED and finally AP. On the other hand, optimum levels of 25(OH)D3 seemed to be beneficial against vascular damage. PMID: 32083542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
