We report the rare case of a patient co-existing NS and DLBCL. DLBCL might be pathogenesis of NS; the findings are supported by the presence of MN, an underlying malignancy (DLBCL), and the lack of anti-PLA2R antibodies. Although further investigation is warranted, our case suggests that DLBCL is a possible cause of secondary MN. PMID: 33028760 [PubMed - in process]

Background: Approximately 5.7 million people in the United States are diagnosed and living with heart failure (HF), with projected prevalence rates to increase 46% by 2030. Heart failure leads hospital admissions in the United States for individuals 65 years or older, with many acute exacerbation admissions resulting from a lack of medication management, poor patient treatment plan adherence, and lack of appropriate follow-up within the health care system. In 2017, the 30-day HF readmission rate at the facility of implementation was 27%, 3% higher than the national average and, more specifically, 18.5% for the cardiac ca...

Purpose/Objectives: The purpose of this quality improvement project was to evaluate the impact of a nurse discharge navigator on reducing 30-day readmissions for the heart failure and sepsis populations. Primary Practice Setting: The 238-bed community hospital in central Virginia is part of a health care system that encompasses 13 acute care facilities. Methodology and Sample: The aim of this project was to identify, implement, and evaluate the transition of care of high-risk readmission patients from January 2019 to April 2019. Inclusion criteria included patients who were 55 years and older, English speaking, dia...

Authors: Cáceres-Perkins W, Cabanillas F, San Vicente G, Rivera-Franceschini C, Sobrino-Najul E, Vega-Vázquez LI, Conde-Sterling D Abstract Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas are B-cell neoplasms that commonly affect the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, usually the stomach. In most cases, extranodal marginal zone lymphoma (ENMZL) is an indolent disease. Bone marrow involvement is common with MALT lymphoma accompanied by paraproteinemia; such involvement impels disease progression. Here, we present the case of an 82-year-old Hispanic patient with long-standing ENMZL in whom the gastric site...

CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that these two polymorphisms do not contribute to AD in the population from the Mersin region of the Eastern Mediterranean. Further studies with larger sample sizes must be conducted to ascertain the association between the 2 polymorphisms. PMID: 33031695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The association between implanted stent types and heart failure in patients with non –ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) remains unknown. The current study aimed to investigate whether the implantation of a newer-generation drug-eluting stent (NG-DES) compared with that of a bare-metal stent (BMS) in patients with NSTEMI who receive an undefined duration of dual antiplate let therapy (DAPT) reduces the risk of hospitalization for heart failure (HHF).

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) represents a major health problem,1 contributing to 11.3% of deaths globally.2 Cardiovascular disease (CVD) still affects a large proportion of patients,3 despite the fact that incidence rates of cardiovascular outcomes have decreased over the last two decades.4 Heart failure (HF) is a main contributor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality among patients with T2DM,5 who feature an almost twofold increase in the risk of HF, with women having a greater risk compared to men.
