Mayo Clinic Q & amp;A podcast: Treating birth defects before a baby is born
Birth defects affect 1 in every 33 babies born in the U.S. each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before a baby is born, early intervention using fetal surgery can treat life-threatening birth defects and improve outcomes in some cases. Fetal surgeons at Mayo Clinic Children's Center treat many conditions, including: Spina bifida (myelomeningocele).Twin anemia-polycythemia sequence (TAPS).Twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence.Twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS).Lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO).

What are Some of the Complications of Short Bowel Syndrome?
Discussion Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is one of the most common gastrointestinal emergencies in neonates. Mortality rates are from 0-45% depending on infant weight and gestation with more premature and smaller infants having greater mortality. NEC usually occurs in premature infants but it also occurs in term infants. The etiology is unknown but is probably multifactorial with ischemia and/or reperfusion playing some role. There are ‘outbreaks’ of NEC but no causative organism has been identified. Regardless of the originating cause, inflammation of the intestine and release of inflammatory mediators cause...

Newly discovered immune cell function vital to healing
(Uppsala University) Cardiovascular disease, the most common cause of death, is the result of oxygen deprivation as blood perfusion to affected tissue is prevented. To halt the development of the disease and to promote healing, re-establishment of blood flow is crucial. Researchers at Uppsala University have now discovered that one of the most common immune cells in the human body, macrophages, play an important role in re-establishing and controlling blood flow, something that can be used to develop new drugs.

Palliative Wound Care for PALTC
It is well-known that many residents in the post-acute and long-term care setting have contracted, suffered from, and succumbed to COVID-19. Lesser known is that many PALTC wound experts expect the rates of pressure injuries to increase due to the virus ’s impact on oxygen perfusion and the vascular system. These experts are encouraging PALTC clinicians to have candid conversations with patients and their responsible parties about the concept of maintenance and/or palliative wound care (Wound Manag Prev 2020;66:5–7).

Cholangiocyte organoids can repair bile ducts after transplantation in the human liver
Organoid technology holds great promise for regenerative medicine but has not yet been applied to humans. We address this challenge using cholangiocyte organoids in the context of cholangiopathies, which represent a key reason for liver transplantation. Using single-cell RNA sequencing, we show that primary human cholangiocytes display transcriptional diversity that is lost in organoid culture. However, cholangiocyte organoids remain plastic and resume their in vivo signatures when transplanted back in the biliary tree. We then utilize a model of cell engraftment in human livers undergoing ex vivo normothermic perfusion to...

What Causes Tachycardia?
Discussion Tachycardia is a rapid heart rate that is above normal for age and level of exertion. Tachycardia is common, particularly sinus tachycardia due to normally encountered circumstances such as pain, fever or exercise. It is usually a normal physiologic process but sustained tachycardia often indicates a potentially abnormal underlying cause. Sinus tachycardia has a rapid heart rate with normal P waves and P-R intervals and variations from moment to moment and respiration. Generally it is not over 200 beats/minute. Vagal stimulation can slow the heart rate; this is a gradual slowing, not an abrupt slowing seen in ...

(DZNE - German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases) Memory performance and other cognitive abilities benefit from a good blood supply to the brain. This applies in particular to people affected by a condition known as 'sporadic cerebral small vessel disease'.
