Infective endocarditis secondary to coagulase-negative staphylococcus revealed by endogenous endophthalmitis: Case report

CONCLUSION: Endogenous endophthalmitis remains an emergency. The search for a source of infection, primarily endocarditis, is systematic. The improvement of the prognosis depends essentially on the eviction and early treatment of infectious foci in people at risk.PMID:34557297 | PMC:PMC8445831 | DOI:10.1016/j.amsu.2021.102788

AbstractBackgroundRates of obesity are increasing worldwide, as is the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Obesity is now considered an inflammatory state. Visceral adiposity in particular may be associated with a more severe inflammatory phenotype in IBD.AimThe aim of this review article is to summarise the current literature on the association between visceral adiposity and outcomes in inflammatory bowel diseaseMethodsTo collect relevant articles, PubMed/MEDLINE and Embase searches were performed using Boolean search phrases. Grey literature and manual searches were also performed. Abstracts were selected by t...

This study was designed to determine the effects of care bundles on patients with severe pneumonia complicated with respiratory failure and to discuss the adverse reaction rate in prognosis.METHODS: A total of 64 patients with both severe pneumonia and respiratory failure admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of our hospital from January 2019 to December 2020 were enrolled as research objects. These patients were equally divided into a control group and an experimental group in a random manner. The experimental group was given care bundles, while the control group was given conventional nursing. Then the nursing effect...

Am J Transl Res. 2021 Sep 15;13(9):10771-10776. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: This research aimed to estimate the diagnostic value of the combination of color Doppler ultrasound (CDU) and computed tomography (CT) in breast cancer (BC).METHODS: Among the 90 BC patients treated in our hospital from May 2018 to December 2020, 43 were examined by CDU before surgery and they served as the control group (CG), while the other 47 were examined with CDU and CT and were considered as the research group (RG). Lesions were confirmed as BC by postoperative pathological examination. The diagnosis rate for BC in the two groups was ...

This study analyzed the predictive value of peripheral blood mononuclear cells' (PBMCs) miR-374a-5p in deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total hip arthroplasty in the elderly.METHODS: There was a total of 112 elderly patients that underwent elective total hip arthroplasty in our hospital and were enrolled as the research subjects. According to the color Doppler ultrasound of lower limbs 5 d postoperatively, subjectswere classified into thrombosis group (n=31) and non-thrombosis group (n=81). We detected the expression levels of miR-374a-5p in PBMCs and plasma D-dimer of the two groups of patients 1 d before surgery, and 1 d...

In this study, we determined whether nocturnal BP is correlated with cardiovascular and renal damage independent of the 24-h BP in CKD patients with normotension or hypertension. Methods: A total of 1166 hospitalized patients with CKD not requiring dialysis were enrolled in this cross-sectional study, 421 and 745 of whom had normotension and hypertension, respectively. TOD was assessed by the left ventricular mass index (LVMI), estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and presence of proteinuria. Univariate and multivariable regression analyses were used to evaluate the relationships between nocturnal BP and TOD....

CONCLUSION A rare disease, Aggregatibacter aphrophilus infective endocarditis was successfully treated with surgical repair and appropriate antibiotic therapy. To avoid misdiagnosis, br-PCR testing should be performed in patients with blood culture-negative endocarditis.
