Indications for stenting of coarctation of the aorta in children under 3 months of age.
CONCLUSION: Coarctation stenting can be carried out safely in small children. Usually, the stent has to be removed or redilated later. Results are encouraging. PMID: 32056092 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The most important finding of one-month ticagrelor consumption were dyspnea, bleeding, and hypersensitivity reaction. No case of bradycardia and stent thrombosis was detected. In our study , iranian population has more susceptibility to dyspnea than PLATO result. The rate of drug discontinuation in this series of cases was 6.4 %.

Authors: Li M, Zhao Y, Liu X, Zhang S, Jiang Y, Yang Z Abstract Portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT) promotes distant metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which increases the mortality of patients with HCC and PVTT. The aim of the present study was to develop an early risk warning system for distant metastasis of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated primary HCC (HBV-HCC) with PVTT. Data from 346 patients (263 and 83 in the modeling and validation cohorts, respectively) who had received primary diagnoses of HBV-HCC and PVTT between January 2012 and June 2015 at Beijing Ditan Hospital (Beijing, China) were retros...

Andrew Marvell ’ s poetry is best known for discouraging the crime of coyness in courtship, but new research led by the University of Bristol has uncovered compelling evidence that the famous poet, celebrated in the eighteenth century as a politician and satirist, had his own illicit liaisons as a spy for the Dutch.
The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the Netherlands rose by 969 to 20,549 as of Wednesday, health authorities said, with 147 new deaths.
CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the feasibility of NMES as an alternative mechanical prophylaxis worn in the postoperative phase until discharge and provides important findings for clinicians considering novel mechanical prophylaxis options. PMID: 32250444 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
(Frontiers) Pregnant women who deliver early are more likely to have a varied vaginal microbiome, especially in their first trimester. Combining data from several studies, the researchers analyzed information across a wide range of women in terms of ethnicity and stage of pregnancy and also highlight the specific bacteria associated with premature births. The authors hope these findings could help identify women at higher risk of giving birth prematurely.
Authors: Chan TS, Hwang YY, Tse E Abstract Introduction: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a frequent and serious complication in cancer patients. Nonetheless, patients with hematological cancers receive less attention as compared with their solid tumor counterparts regarding this potentially fatal complication.Areas covered: Risk factors that are associated with the development of VTE in hematological cancers are discussed, based on a PubMed literature search. Since different hematological malignancies carry different risk of VTE, risk assessment in individual types of hematological cancers, including acute leukemia...
In this study we investigated the relationship between fluctuations in cytosolic Zn2 [Zn2+]i and platelet ROS production. Agonist-evoked ROS production, GSH levels and GPx activity are abrogated in platelets treated with the Zn2+-chelator, TPEN. Conversely, increasing platelet [Zn2+]i using Zn2+ ionophores potentiated ROS generation and decreased GSH levels and GPx activity. Zn2+-dependent ROS production was sensitive to pretreatment with DPI or mitoTEMPO, NADPH oxidase and mitochondria inhibitors respectively. Increasing [Zn2+]i resulted in increases of Erk1/2 and JNK phosphorylation. Our data are consistent with a functi...
