Authors: Martínez-Acitores D, Hernández Ainsa M, Cortés García L, Bengochea Martínez ML, Palacios Fanlo MJ Abstract Ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare entity. Most cases are asymptomatic and are occasionally found during autopsy or laparoscopy. They may sometimes cause relevant clinical problems such as abdominal pain or intra-abdominal bleeding. In this clinical case report, we review the literature in order to decipher the case of a 68-year-old female with an ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma that arose from the peritoneum. The patient was diagnosed after being studied du...

Previous studies have demonstrated that insulin resistance contributes to ischemic stroke via multiple mechanisms. Our study aimed to investigate the association between TyG and prevalent ischemic stroke, exploring the value of TyG to optimize the risk stratification of isch...

It's no secret that there's a multitude of unhappy nurses out there in the world. From mandatory overtime to unhealthy nurse-patient ratios, I admit there are very valid reasons for this seeming epidemic of discontent. So, is the nursing glass half-full or half-empty?

A new study mentioned recently on Twitter states that a full one-third of nurses...

Authors: Leo M, Ponziani FR, Nesci A, Santoliquido A, Vecchio FM, Francalanci P, Pompili M Abstract Low molecular weight heparins (LMWH) are a class of drugs including various molecules that inhibit predominantly the factor V of coagulation and are used in a wide range of clinical settings for the management of venous thromboembolism and acute coronary syndrome. Despite LMWH are considered safe and associated with a lower incidence of side effects compared to unfractioned heparin, it is worth considering that the use of LWMH can be associated with complications. Some of these, such as bleeding and thrombocytopenia,...

Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2019 Sep;23(17):7573-7581 Authors: Liu WY, Wang L, Lai YF Abstract OBJECTIVE: The pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) model was established in rats in this study. Therefore, we aimed to elucidate the protective role of Hepcidin in PAH rats and its underlying mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 24 male Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into sham group, PAH group and Hepcidin group, with 8 rats in each group. After animal procedures, hemodynamic parameters and r...
