Unmasking catamenial hemoptysis in the era of CFTR modulator therapy

Hemoptysis is a well-known complication in people with cystic fibrosis (CF), which occurs in approximately 9% of CF individuals over a 5-year time period [1]. However, catamenial hemoptysis, expectoration of blood that coincides with menstruation, can be a unique manifestation in women with CF. Catamenial hemoptysis can be associated with thoracic endometriosis syndrome, (TES) which is estimated to occur in less than 6% of the general female population [2]. Studies examining catamenial hemoptysis in CF are limited.

Authors: Annoni S, Bellofiore A, Repossini E, Lazzeri M, Nicolini A, Tarsia P Abstract Respiratory physiotherapy and rehabilitation are important therapeutic options in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFB). The aims of this review of clinical trials were to evaluate the safety and the effects on physiologic and clinical outcomes of airway clearance techniques (ACTs) and rehabilitation in NCFB patients, in comparison to usual care. The search was performed on March 2018 by using PubMed and PeDro databases. 33 studies were selected. The use of ACTs for NCFB were effective in increasing sputum volume although no ...

Despite this, and its extensive documentation for its usefulness, it has only been fully im...

ine W Abstract Infertility is a disease characterized by the failure to establish a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular and unprotected sexual intercourse. It is estimated to affect between 8 and 12% of reproductive-aged couples worldwide. Males are found to be solely responsible for 20-30% of infertility cases but contribute to 50% of cases overall. Secondary infertility is the most common form of female infertility around the globe, often due to reproductive tract infections. The three major factors influencing the spontaneous probability of conception are the time of unwanted non-conception, the age...

Discussion Intussusception occurs when one segment of the gastrointestinal tract telescopes into an adjacent segment. The outer receiving segment of bowel is known as the intussuscipiens and the inner inverting segment is known as the intussusceptum. It occurs most often in children between 2 months to 5 years, with a peak incidence between 4-10 months. Males are more often affected than females by 3:2. It also occurs more often after abdominal operations particularly in the first 2 weeks. It is the second most common acute abdominal emergency in children after appendicitis. In adults ~80% have an underlying cause or lead ...
