AbstractIntroductionThe cervical length (CL) measurement is a widely used method to estimate the risk of preterm birth. Due in particular to the high false ‐positive rate, the establishment of markers with improved test characteristics is a great challenge. A potential predictor of preterm birth is the uterocervical angle (UCA) and this additional measurement may improve the risk assessment. It was the aim of this study to compare the test properties of CL and UCA on patients at risk for preterm birth.Material and methods109 patients with at least one of the following signs of threatening preterm birth between 20+0/7 and...

Abstract Cytoskeleton is composed of more than 100 proteins and represents a dynamic network of the cellular cytoplasm. Cytoskeletal functions include spatial organization of cellular components, structural connection of the cell with external environment, and biomechanical force generation. Cytoskeleton takes part, at different levels, in all phases of platelet biogenesis: megakaryocyte (MK) differentiation, MK maturation, and platelet formation. In addition, it also plays a major role in each stage of platelet function. Inherited platelet disorders (IPDs) are a group of rare diseases featured by low platelet cou...

CONCLUSION: The guided urethral dilation and internal urethrotomy are safe, short time procedures, and offer satisfactory results with the advance to VIUD in Qmax at 12 months. No recurrence was documented in both groups after 12 months. VIU reported 18% intraoperative complication. PMID: 32723114 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Colonoscopy carries important procedure and non-procedure related risks. Non-procedure related AEs are likely underreported. Better attention to patients with pre-existing diseases and further colonoscopist training may lower AE rates. A standardised colonoscopy AE reporting system is warranted.

We describe a case of vigorous cough-induced left intercostal artery rupture with partial diaphragmatic tear in a 60-year-old obese male with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He presented with left hemothorax, a rapidly spreading chest and abdominal wall hematoma, and progression of anemia. Computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a bleeding focus from the left 8th intercostal artery. CT-guided surface marking of the bleeding point was done over the chest wall. The patient underwent open thoracotomy with drainage of clotted hemothorax and ligation of bleeding intercostal artery. Incidentally, a partial diaphragm tear w...

AbstractThose who are infected withSevere Acute Respiratory Syndrome ‐related CoronaVirus‐2 are theoretically at increased risk of venous thromboembolism during self ‐isolation, if they have reduced mobility or are dehydrated. Should patients develop coronavirus disease (COVID‐19) pneumonia requiring hospital admission for treatment of hypoxia, the risk for thromboembolic complications increases greatly. These thromboembolic events are the result of at least two distinct mechanisms – microvascular thrombosis in the pulmonary system (immunothrombosis) and hospital‐associated venous thromboembolism. Since pre...

Further real-world data is needed to inform clinical practice. The primary outcome was to assess corticosteroid-free and clinical remission after vedolizumab initiation. Secondary outcomes included effect on disease activity scores, biochemical markers, concomitant drug use, endoscopic remission, surgical inter...

CONCLUSIONS: The causes of NVGIB are complex and the onset, location, risk, and clinical presentations are variable. NVGIB can be generally divided into three types: vascular abnormality, neoplastic disease, and iatrogenic condition. TAE is a safe, effective, and fast procedure in the management of gastrointestinal bleeding. PMID: 32650690 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
