Retroperitoneal isolated enteric duplication cyst
We present a retroperitoneal IEDC, which was juxtaposed to the inferior vena cava. To the best of our knowledge, this has not been reported before in literature.
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 ...
Prophylactic endoscopic clipping does not prevent delayed postpolypectomy bleeding (DPPB) and should not be used routinely in most patients, according to a new review of medical records.Reuters Health Information
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...
The bleeding risk went up in such patients on oral anticoagulation who then added clopidogrel in POPULAR-TAVI, and being on OAC alone didn't raise ischemic risk. Some experts question its methods.Medscape Medical News
Conclusion: Various therapeutic bronchoscopic interventions, including combined modalities, provide rapid and sustained improvements in symptoms, respiratory status, exercise capacity, and quality of life in malignant CAO and have a good safety profile.
CONCLUSIONS: The Canadian consensus statements assist clinicians by providing a framework for consideration to navigate the challenges when injecting BoNTA in anticoagulated patients with spasticity. PMID: 32217235 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
(American College of Cardiology) Patients with diabetes who stopped taking aspirin three months after the insertion of a coronary stent and then took the anti-platelet medication ticagrelor alone for a year had fewer episodes of bleeding and no increase in heart attacks, stroke or other adverse events caused by blockages in the arteries, compared with patients who took both aspirin and ticagrelor for a year. The research was presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).
(American College of Cardiology) Patients with atrial fibrillation who took oral anticoagulants alone after undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) had a lower rate of bleeding complications without an increased risk of clotting-related complications compared to patients who took antiplatelet medication in addition to oral anticoagulants, in a trial presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).
(American College of Cardiology) For people with cancer, the oral blood thinner apixaban is at least as effective as dalteparin, a low molecular weight heparin given by injection, in preventing a repeat venous thromboembolism (VTE), or blood clot, with no excess in major bleeding events, according to Phase 3 trial results presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).
