Nephrotic syndrome and Giant cell arthritis concurrently occurring after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty for renal artery stenosis
. Clin Nephrol. 2020 Mar 26;: Authors: Ishizaki Y, Nishizono R, Sato Y, Ishikawa T, Kitamura K, Fujimoto S Abstract An elderly Japanese woman with bilateral renal artery occlusion who developed massive proteinuria after unilateral percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) is reported. She had a history of percutaneous coronary intervention and subsequently developed refractory hypertension. She was diagnosed with renovascular hypertension caused by bilateral total occlusion of the renal arteries, and underwent PTRA for the left renal artery. Nephrotic-range proteinuria from the left kidney, confirmed by split urine collection from each kidney under cytoscopic examination, and low-grade fever with positive C-reactive protein became obvious after PTRA. Giant cell arteritis (GCA) was also diagnosed by positive findings on fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography in the common carotid arteries, subclavian arteries, and aorta, but not in the renal arteries. Administration of corticosteroid and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor decreased the proteinuria (> 9 - 2 g/day). Possible mechanisms for the development of nephrotic-range proteinuria and a hypothesis that GCA became obvious after PTRA are discussed.

Conclusion CR-ESD by hydrodissection has good safety and efficacy profile and offers well tolerated and effective treatment for complex polyps. As such, this technique may be useful in the West, in centers, where previous gastric ESD is not frequent or Japanese mentoring is not possible.

Background and aim Recent clinical trials have confirmed that Helicobacter pylori infection is positively associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), although some research has shown a negative association. Therefore, to confirm whether H. pylori eradication treatment is feasible for NAFLD patients in our hospital, we aimed to establish the association between H. pylori infection and NAFLD. Methods We enrolled 91 patients with NAFLD diagnosed by abdominal B-mode ultrasonography between January and December 2018. H. pylori infection was confirmed by C13 urea breath test, and liver function, glycometabolis...

Combination of Fluorine-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron-Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (¹⁸F-FDG PET/CT) and Tumor Markers to Diagnose Lymph Node Metastasis in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): A Retrospective and Prospective Study. Med Sci Monit. 2020 Jun 02;26:e922675 Authors: Zhai X, Guo Y, Qian X Abstract BACKGROUND The early diagnosis of lymph node (LN) metastasis is crucial for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the diagnosis of LN metastasis mainly dependent on ¹⁸F-FDG PET/CT (fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomo...

Authors: Xia W, Yang N, Li Y Abstract BACKGROUND The present research aimed to explore the risk factors for adverse cardiovascular events in elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) combined with NAFLD. MATERIAL AND METHODS We included 325 AMI patients hospitalized in the Department of Cardiology. AMI patients underwent emergency thrombolysis or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). AMI patients were classified into NAFLD group and non-NAFLD group. General clinical data, creatinine and myocardial enzyme, GRACE scores of AMI patients were evaluated and compared between two groups. Incidence of adv...
