Spontaneous Incidence of Vertebral Body Infection Following Osteoporotic Vertebral Fracture: A Case Series Study and Review of Literature

Conclusion. The spontaneous incidence rate of vertebral body infection among OVF patients was 0.7%; however, the occurrence of this complication led to serious events. Clinicians should pay attention to the possibility of bacillemia in elderly or immunocompromised OVF patients. Level of Evidence: 4

Authors: Dourado M, Cavalcanti F, Vilar L, Cantilino A Abstract CKD has a high prevalence worldwide, mainly due to its main etiologies-diabetes and hypertension. It has high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, with traditional risk factors such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and left ventricular hypertrophy being common. Nontraditional cardiovascular risk factors, such as anemia, hyperparathyroidism, chronic inflammation, and microalbuminuria, are also well studied. Prolactin is a hormone not only related to lactation but also being considered a uremic toxin by some authors. It accumulates...

Conclusions: Maternal serum TG/HDL levels at late gestation are positively associated with neonatal body weight and the risk of macrosomia in women without DM. Maintaining maternal lipid levels in an appropriate range is important in the context of fetal overgrowth and primary prevention of macrosomia. PMID: 32655633 [PubMed]

This study aimed to explore the protective effects of Wenshen-Yanggan decoction on dopaminergic (DA) neuron injury in a rotenone-induced mouse model with chronic Parkinson's disease (PD) and explore its mechanism of action. Ultraperformance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was used to measure the content of six main components in the Wenshen-Yanggan decoction. The chronic PD mouse model was established by treating 10-month-old healthy wild C57BL/6 male mice with rotenone 30 mg/kg/day for 28 days in succession. The pole test and rotarod test were applied to detect the rescue effect of Wensh...

Recurrent Severe Hyponatremia in a Patient with Sjögren's Syndrome. Electrolyte Blood Press. 2020 Jun;18(1):19-22 Authors: Kim HD, Lee J, Chung BH, Yang CW, Kim YS, Park CW Abstract Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disease that presents with exocrine gland dysfunction. Renal involvement is common in SS and often results in tubulointerstitial nephritis, renal tubular acidosis, and Fanconi's syndrome. Electrolyte imbalances are commonly the first symptom of renal involvement of SS. The most common feature of dysnatremia in SS is hypernatremia with diabetes insipidus. However, cases of h...

Authors: Ramdani I, Pescatore KA, Bouazza B Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive chronic inflammatory disease and the third cause of death worldwide in 2016. COPD epidemiology is well documented in high-income countries where the disease is well managed. However, the disease is neglected in low-income countries and there is lack of data. Our study aims to identify COPD patients' characteristics and hospital admission causes, and to determine disease etiologies and associated factors. A retrospective study was conducted in COPD Algerian patients using medical record data collected f...
