An Update on Addison's Disease.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Medicine III, University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany.

Addison's disease - the traditional term for primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) - is defined as the clinical manifestation of chronic glucocorticoid- and/or mineralocorticoid deficiency due to failure of the adrenal cortex which may result in an adrenal crisis with potentially life-threatening consequences. Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with PAI is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is often reduced.PAI is a rare disease but recent data report an increasing prevalence.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2018 Nov 22;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Department, Centro Hospitalar e Universitario de Coimbra EPE, Coimbra, Portugal.

Addison's disease (AD) is the most common endocrine manifestation of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), but it remains a very rare complication of the syndrome. It is caused by adrenal venous thrombosis and consequent hemorrhagic infarction or by spontaneous (without thrombosis) adrenal hemorrhage, usually occurring after surgery or anticoagulant therapy. We present a clinical case of a 36-year-old female patient with a previous diagnosis of APS. Read More

Immune-Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is a Rare Cause of Ischemic Stroke in Young Adults: Case Reports and Literature Review.

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2018 Nov 12;27(11):3163-3171. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Neurology, CHU de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France / Except Yahsou Delmas: Department of Nephrology, CHU de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France.

Introduction: Immune thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (i-TTP), related to acquired ADAMTS-13 dysfunction, can lead to various neurological symptoms including ischemic stroke. To date the clinical, radiological, and biological characteristics of patients having a stroke as the inaugural manifestation of i-TTP are largely unknown.

Methods: Probable immune-TTP was defined by a low ADAMTS-13 activity associated with the presence of ADAMTS-13 inhibitors and/or favorable clinicobiological response under immunological treatments. Read More

Department of Radiology, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, University of Michigan Health Systems, 1500 East Medical Center Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA.

Hematochezia may be a result of anatomic, vascular, inflammatory, infectious, or neoplastic diseases. Colonoscopic evaluation and therapy may be limited because of intermittent bleeding in the setting of numerous diverticula. This report describes a patient with diverticulosis who presented with hematochezia and hemodynamic instability with failed colonoscopic and arteriographic evaluations, and was treated with percutaneous transcolonic diverticular cyanoacrylate and epinephrine injection.

Successful Resuscitation in a Model of Asphyxia and Hemorrhage to Test Different Volume Resuscitation Strategies. A Study in Newborn Piglets After Transition.

Front Pediatr 2018 10;6:192. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Division of Neonatology and Pediatric Critical Care, Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Ulm University, Ulm, Germany.

Evidence for recommendations on the use of volume expansion during cardiopulmonary resuscitation in newborn infants is limited. To develop a newborn piglet model with asphyxia, hemorrhage, and cardiac arrest to test different volume resuscitation on return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). We hypothesized that immediate red cell transfusion reduces time to ROSC as compared to the use of an isotonic crystalloid fluid. Read More

Successful Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy in Emergency for a Gastric Gastrointestinal Stomal Tumor (GIST) with Acute Bleeding: A Case Report.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Jul 20;19:849-853. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Department of General Surgery and Liver Transplantation, Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Policlinico, Bari, Italy.

BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal stomal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, and the stomach is the most commonly involved organ. Complete surgical resection with negative margins is the primary and only potentially curative treatment. Surgeon experience with minimally invasive gastric resections in addition to the tumor size and site has to be considered in the choice of laparoscopic or open surgical approach in order to remove the lesion.

Transesophageal Echocardiographic Observation of Caval Thrombus Followed by Intraoperative Placement of Inferior Vena Cava Filter for Presumed Pulmonary Embolism During Cesarean Hysterectomy for Placenta Percreta: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2019 Jan;12(2):37-40

From the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California.

During a cesarean hysterectomy for placenta percreta, transesophageal echocardiography was used to monitor volume status and guide resuscitation. After delivery of the neonate but before massive surgical hemorrhage, a thrombus appeared in the inferior vena cava. Roughly 3 hours later, the patient had hemodynamic changes consistent with an intraoperative pulmonary embolism. Read More

Introduction: Vasopressors are commonly used after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) to sustain cerebral pressure gradients. Yet, the relationship between vasopressors and the degree of cerebral microcirculatory support achieved remains unclear. This study aimed to explore the changes in cerebral and peripheral regional tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2) as well as blood pressure (BP) before and after vasopressor infusion in patients with aSAH.
