The Risk of Complications after Carpal Tunnel Release in Patients Taking Acetylsalicylic Acid as Platelet Inhibition: A Multicenter Propensity Score-Matched Study.

CONCLUSION:: Carpal tunnel release under platelet inhibition with acetylsalicylic acid is safe and can be performed without interruption of such medication. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, III. PMID: 31985640 [PubMed - in process]

This article discusses the most common tumor and tumor-like lesions arising at the shoulder. Osseous tumors of the shoulder rank second in incidence to those at the knee joint and include benign osteochondromas and myeloma or primary malignant lesions, such as osteosarcoma or chondrosarcomas. Soft tissue tumors are overwhelmingly benign, with lipomas predominating, although malignant lesions, such as liposarcomas, can occur. Numerous tumor-like lesions may arise from the joints or bursae, due to either underlying arthropathy and synovitis (eg, rheumatoid arthritis and amyloid) or related to conditions, including tenosynovi...

We characterized the biologic background of prothrombotic platelet function in the setting of durable left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) evaluating the role of different antithrombotic regimens. Platelet-mediated thrombin generation was quantified using the Platelet Activity State (PAS) Assay and the Thrombin Generation Test (TGT) in 78 patients implanted with the HeartMate II (n = 10, 13%), the HeartMate 3 (HM3) (n = 30, 38%), or the HVAD (n = 38, 49%) and managed with oral anticoagulation plus aspirin (n = 46, 59%) or anticoagulation alone (n = 32, 41%). Coagulation parameters (platelet count, International Normaliz...

AbstractObjectivesCentral or peripheral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (va ECMO) is widely used in postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCS). Available data suggest controversial results for both types. Our aim was to investigate PCS patients treated with either peripheral (pECMO) or central ECMO (cECMO) concerning their outcome.MethodsBetween April 2006 and October 2016, 156 consecutive patients with va ECMO therapy due to PCS were identified and included in this retrospective analysis. Patients were divided into cECMO and pECMO groups. Statistical analysis of risk factors concerning 30 ‐day mortality of ...

CONCLUSIONS: TAMIS is an innovative technique that may be considered for the treatment of benign diseases like anastomotic complications, benign rectal stenosis, anastomotic explorations with lavage and drainage, rectal ulcus, and rectal intussusception. It can be used to search for a good plane of dissection, which cannot be found through the abdominal anterior approach. It can also be adopted for removal of early malignant rectal polyps and for TaTME. The technique described here allows the surgeons to work under ergonomic conditions, with completely reusable materials, and with a magnified view of the operative field, a...

ObjectiveGenetic variants in the region of tumor necrosis factor –induced protein 3–interacting protein 1 (TNIP1) are associated with autoimmune disease and reducedTNIP1 gene expression. The aim of this study was to define the functional genetic mechanisms drivingTNIP1 hypomorphic expression imparted by the systemic lupus erythematosus –associatedTNIP1 H1 risk haplotype.MethodsDual luciferase expression and electrophoretic mobility shift assays were used to evaluate the allelic effects of 11 risk variants on enhancer function and nuclear protein binding in immune cell line models (Epstein ‐Barr virus [E...

This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship of PPM1A to osteoclast differentiation by generating conditional gene‐knockout (PPM1Afl/fl;LysM ‐Cre) mice and evaluating their bone phenotype.MethodsThe bone phenotypes of LysM ‐Cre mice (n = 6) and PPM1Afl/fl;LysM ‐Cre mice (n = 6) were assessed by micro–computed tomography. Osteoclast differentiation was induced by culturing bone marrow–derived macrophages in the presence of RANKL and macrophage colony‐stimulating factor (M‐CSF), and was evaluated by counting tartrate‐resistant acid phosphatase– positive multinucleated cells. Level...
