Migraine Headaches and Family Planning: What We Think We Know
Migraine headache is a nearly ubiquitous neurological disorder that disproportionately affects women and has already been identified as the leading cause of years lived with disability worldwide in women under the age of 50.1 Not only is this disability associated with features of the disease of migraine itself, but there is also a vast influence that migraine headaches exert on other aspects of life even between attacks. Many people with migraine live in anticipation of their next attack, which is often unpredictable, and plan their life accordingly. (Source: Mayo Clinic Proceedings)

Anticoagulation in COVID-19: A Systematic Review, Meta-Analysis and Rapid Guidance From The Mayo Clinic
A higher risk of thrombosis has been described as a prominent feature of COVID-19. This systematic review synthesizes current data on thrombosis risk, prognostic implications, and anticoagulation effects in COVID-19. We included 37 studies from 4,070 unique citations. Meta-analysis was performed when feasible. Coagulopathy and thrombotic events were frequent among patients with COVID-19, and further increased in those with more severe forms of the disease. We also present guidance on the prevention and management of thrombosis from a multidisciplinary panel of specialists from the Mayo Clinic. (Source: Mayo Clinic Proceedings)

Shell Shock and PTSD: A Tale of Two Diagnoses
Ever since human beings first went to war, the people who fight in those wars have sustained not only physical wounds but also psychological wounds, which may spare the body but scar the mind. And for almost as long as human beings have been waging war, societies have struggled with two fundamental questions about these psychological wounds. First, how do we identify and define these unseen wounds, wounds that lead to the type of consequences that defy simple physiologic explanation? Second, given that some people clearly return from war with psychological issues that impair their ability to function, how do we justly comp...

Pulmonary Hypertension: A Brief Guide for Clinicians
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is classified into 5 clinical subgroups: pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), PH due to left-sided heart disease, PH due to chronic lung disease, chronic thromboembolic PH (CTEPH), and PH with an unclear and/or multifactorial mechanisms. A range of underlying conditions can lead to these disorders. Overall, PH affects approximately 1% of the global population, and over half of patients with heart failure may be affected. Cardiologists are therefore likely to encounter PH in their practice. (Source: Mayo Clinic Proceedings)

Flexibilization of Science, Cognitive Biases, and the COVID-19 Pandemic
In the second week of March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was officially a pandemic. This occurred 10 weeks after China reported to the WHO a cluster of pneumonia cases. In the context of a pandemic, multiple pressures, such as fear of death and economic collapse, may align. This scenario creates a fertile ground for ingrained cognitive biases, thereby disturbing the systematic approach upon which science usually relies. (Source: Mayo Clinic Proceedings)

Proteomics Fundamentally Advance the Diagnosis and Management of Amyloidosis
Characterization of the tissue protein deposits is a mainstay in the care of patients with amyloidoses. The precise identification of the amyloid protein is a prerequisite for appropriate therapy, accurate prognosis, and, when indicated, genetic counseling. Over the years, an array of biochemical, histological, and immunological techniques has been used to detect and characterize amyloid fibrils and their constituents, until the advent of proteomics. This methodology combines the abilities to assess the presence of fibrils through the detection of the amyloid proteomic signature, identify the deposited protein, and investi...

Overview of Lymphedema for Physicians and Other Clinicians: A Review of Fundamental Concepts
Lymphedema has historically been underrated in clinical practice, education, and scholarship to the detriment of many patients with this chronic, debilitating condition. The mechanical insufficiency of the lymphatic system causes the abnormal accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the interstitium, which triggers a cascade of adverse consequences such as fat deposition and fibrosis. As the condition progresses, patients present with extremity heaviness, itchiness, skin infections, and, in later stages, dermal fibrosis, skin papillomas, acanthosis, and other trophic skin changes.
