Paradoxical Increase of Stroke in Patients with Defect of High Molecular Weight Multimers of the von Willebrand Factors following Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

CONCLUSION:  MLBCs and CT-ADP > 180 seconds were identified as predictors for ischemic stroke or TIA. The present study suggests that the defects of HMW multimers of the VWFs may contribute not only to bleeding events but also to thrombotic events. PMID: 32726854 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Gumus S, Yalav O, Erdogan O, Teke Z Abstract A giant colonic lipoma causing colo-colonic intussusception is extremely rare in adults. A 35-year-old woman visited our emergency room with abdominal pain, abdominal distension, nausea and vomiting. Physical examination showed a painful distended abdomen. Abdominal computed tomography revealed that there was a soft-tissue mass with a fat density of approximately 6 cm in diameter in the distal part of the transverse colon. Since the clinical presentation was that of a mechanical ileus, a laparotomy was performed. An intussusception was detected in the transvers ...

Authors: Roccasalva F, Ferrante G Abstract Current guidelines recommend a duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and oral P2Y12 receptor inhibitors following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with second-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) of 6 months for most patients with stable coronary disease and of 12 months for most patients with acute coronary syndromes. Large evidence from randomised clinical trials of shorter DAPT regimens after PCI with newergeneration DES is now emerging in heterogenous patient population not selected on the basis of high bleeding risk as well as in patients a...

CONCLUSION: The well-established CPU concept could additionally benefit from a superordinate quality control. Adequate quality benchmarking appears to be fundamental for gap analyses and for the establishment of a separate remuneration structure. In this respect the German Society for Cardiology as the certifying institution is required to establish an appropriate mechanism within the framework of regular updates of criteria.

Authors: Kamal A, Hosny M, Abd Elwahab A, Shawki Kamal Y, Shehata HS, Hassan A Abstract BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Aberrant expression of transcription factor forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) has been suggested to underlie different immunological disorders as FOXP3 expression is essential for T regulatory cells (Tregs) to maintain their suppressive and anti-inflammatory functions and exert immunologic self-tolerance. Interleukin-35 (IL-35) is an important immunosuppressive cytokine that is produced mainly by CD4+ FOXP3+ Tregs. OBJECTIVES: To a...

Kennetra (Kiki) Searcy is a former track star and personal trainer – and wife of pro football player Da’Norris Searcy – so she’s accustomed to seeing herself and others tackle daunting physical challenges on a regular basis. But no matter what your athletic ability is, there’s little that can prepare you for the challenges of a complicated, high-risk pre gnancy. It all started when Searcy had her first child, Kenna, and experienced a post-partum hemorrhage which caused severe bleeding.…
