Background: The RHEMITT score (Renal disease; Heart failure; Endoscopic findings; Major bleeding; Incomplete SBCE; Tobacco; Treatment by enteroscopy), was the first score to accurately predict the individual risk of small bowel rebleeding after capsule endoscopy (SBCE).Aim: Prospective validation of the RHEMITT score.Methods: Cohort of consecutive patients with mid gastrointestinal bleeding (MGIB) submitted to SBCE and followed prospectively, during at least 12 months, since 2017 until 2020.

Mobilized peripheral blood has become the primary source of hematopoietic stem cells for both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor (G-CSF) is currently the standard agent used in the allogeneic setting. Despite the high mobilization efficacy in most donors, G-CSF requires 4-5 days of daily administration, and a small percentage of the donors fail to mobilize an optimal number of stem cells necessary for a safe allogeneic stem cell transplant.

Monitoring of NPM1 mutant (mut) measurable residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has an established role in patients treated with intensive chemotherapy. The European LeukemiaNet has defined molecular persistence at low copy number (MP-LCN) as MRD transcript level <1-2% with <1-log change between any 2 positive samples collected after the end of treatment (EOT). As the clinical impact of MP-LCN is unknown, we sought to characterize outcomes in patients with persistent NPM1mut MRD after EOT and identify factors associated with disease progression. Read More

Objective: The authors sought to investigate the association between immunologic counts on admission and acute symptomatic hydrocephalus after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH).Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 143 consecutive patients with aSAH. Patient demographics, clinical parameters, laboratory values, and radiographic imaging were obtained. Read More

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common preventable cause of stroke. Diagnosis of new AF is frequent after acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the recently developed morphology-voltage-P-wave duration (MVP) ECG risk score for in-hospital and long-term AF diagnosis following AIS. Read More
