This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of PNR and PWR in acute ischemic stroke patients treated with EVT. METHODS: Poor functional outcome was defined as Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) of 3-6 at 3 months, Symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) was diagnosed based on CT scan and classified according to the criterial of Heidelberg Bleeding Classification. Binary logistical regression was used to analyze the relationship of PWR, PNR with functional outcome and symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH). RESULTS: Patients with good prognosis had higher PNR and PWR value (29 vs. 24, P=0.002) (22 vs. 19, P...

Conclusion Careful management may be required for patients undergoing gastric ESD under continued aspirin treatment in addition to HR of anticoagulant agents; although the delayed bleeding risk after gastric ESD under HR of anticoagulant agents might have decreased over the years.

Authors: Ido K, Nakane T, Tanizawa N, Makuuchi Y, Okamura H, Koh S, Nanno S, Nishimoto M, Hirose A, Nakamae M, Nakashima Y, Koh H, Hino M, Nakamae H Abstract A 53-year-old man presented with uncontrolled bleeding caused by acquired platelet dysfunction accompanied by calreticulin-mutated primary myelofibrosis. Based on the detection of abnormal platelets, including large gray platelets, under light microscopy and the loss of the second wave of aggregation observed by light transmission aggregometry, the patient was diagnosed with platelet dysfunction accompanied by myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). In addition, ...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is strongly linked to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and both of these conditions contribute to poor cardiovascular outcomes. We evaluated the impact of renal failure on major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in AF, and predictive value of the 2MACE score in this post-hoc analysis of the AMADEUS trial. The primary endpoint was MACE (composite of myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularisation and cardiovascular mortality). Secondary endpoints included the composite of stroke, major bleeding and non-cardiovascular mortality, and each of the specific outcomes separately.

Authors: Moosajee S, Rafique S Abstract In an age when people are living longer and medical interventions are continually becoming more advanced, clinicians will need to be aware of systemic disorders and treatments that may cause complications in the dental setting. The Office for National Statistics' projections state that 26% of the UK population will be aged over 65 years by 2041.1 Therefore, clinicians may often encounter patients who complain of prolonged bleeding following certain procedures, most commonly dental extractions. In the majority of cases, the cause is often a local one, which can be managed usin...

Small cell tumors arise from the neuroendocrine cell system and they are most frequently found in the lung (SCLC). Small cell tumor could occasionally arise in other body sites, such as the cervix, prostate, gastrointestinal tract, and very rarely from other sites. Metastatic SCLC patients present with metastatic disease in 80% of cases, and the metastases typically are reported in brain, liver, lung, and bone; they rarely could be found in the ovary. Differently, primitive small cell carcinoma of the ovary of pulmonary type is a rare and highly aggressive tumor arising from the ovarian cells; no suitable treatment strateg...
