The hidden links between mental disorders (Nature): In 2018, psychiatrist Oleguer Plana-Ripoll was wrestling with a puzzling fact about mental disorders. He knew that many individuals have multiple conditions — anxiety and depression, say, or schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He wanted to know how common it was to have more than one diagnosis, so he got his hands on a database containing the medical details of around 5.9 million Danish citizens. He was taken aback by what he found. Every single mental disorder predisposed the patient to every other mental disorder — no matter how distinct the symptoms. &ldquo...

Authors: Poulin A, Beaupré F, Gravel C, Hadjadj S, Bernier M, Beaudoin J, O'Connor K, Ferreira-Neto AN, Wintzer J, Dumont E, Dagenais F, Rodés-Cabau J, Paradis JM Abstract BACKGROUND: Many patients referred for a MitraClip intervention are finally refused for this intervention, and data are very scarce on their outcomes. Our study sought to determine the characteristics and outcomes of patients who are referred to a mitral valve clinic and are finally denied from a percutaneous mitral edge-to-edge repair. METHODS: A total of 210 patients referred to our clinic for severe mitral regurgitation were ...

Abstract There is much interest in targeting DNA repair pathways for use in cancer therapy, as the effectiveness of many therapeutic agents relies on their ability to cause damage to DNA, and deficiencies in DSB repair pathways can make cells more sensitive to specific cancer therapies. For example, defects in the double-strand break (DSB) pathways, non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) and homology-directed repair (HDR), induce sensitivity to radiation therapy and poly(ADP)-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, respectively. However, traditional approaches to inhibit DNA repair through small molecule inhibitors have o...

Acute aortic syndromes are life-threatening medical conditions that include classic acute aortic dissection (AAD), aortic intramural hematoma, penetrating aortic ulcer, and even aortic pseudoaneurysm and traumatic aortic injury. The European Society of Cardiology has designed a multiparametric diagnostic algorithm to provide stepwise diagnosis. All patients with AAD should receive aggressive medical therapy to control blood pressure and heart rate. Urgent surgical repair is recommended for type A AAD. Uncomplicated type B AAD requires aggressive medical therapy. In contrast thoracic endovascular repair is recommended for c...
