Sex-Based Differences in Interstitial Lung Disease.

Am J Med Sci 2020 Apr 25. Epub 2020 Apr 25.

Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care, Sidney Kimmel College of Medicine; Jane & Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute, Jefferson Health, Thomas Jefferson University, 834 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 USA. Electronic address:

Interstitial lung diseases comprise a family of progressive pulmonary disorders that are often idiopathic or associated with various systemic diseases and that is characterized by bilateral lung involvement with inflammation and tissue remodeling or fibrosis. The impact of sex, including the anatomic and physiologic traits that one is born with, on the development and progression of interstitial lung diseases is not entirely clear. Variances between men and women are driven by differences in male and female biology and sex hormones, among other differences, but their role remains uncertain. Read More

Systemic Thrombolysis Therapy is Associated With Improved Outcomes Among Patients With Acute Pulmonary Embolism and Respiratory Failure.

Am J Med Sci 2020 Apr 28. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Pulmonary Department, Meir Medical Center, Kfar Saba, Israel; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel. Electronic address:

Background: Thrombolytic therapy is widely accepted for massive pulmonary embolism (PE) due to the high mortality risk associated with standard anticoagulation alone. Its role in submassive PE, however, has remained controversial. We aimed to evaluate whether the selective use of systemic thrombolytic therapy with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA) improves the survival of patients with submassive PE at increased risk for clinical deterioration.

Severe Rhabdomyolysis in Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency.

Am J Med Sci 2020 Apr 2. Epub 2020 Apr 2.

Department of Hematology/Oncology, Saint Joseph University Medical Center, Paterson, New Jersey.

Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is an X-linked genetic disorder associated with intravascular hemolysis. Rhabdomyolysis with myoglobinuria in a patient with G6PD deficiency is a very rare manifestation, in fact, to the best of our knowledge, only a few case reports have been published in the literature to date. Herein, we report an unusual presentation of a 33-year-old male with G6PD deficiency with multiple episodes of severe rhabdomyolysis with no significant concurrent hemolysis. Read More

Idiopathic Pleural Effusions: Characteristics and Discrimination From Cytology-Negative Malignant Pleural Effusions.

Am J Med Sci 2020 Apr 25. Epub 2020 Apr 25.

Department of Internal Medicine, Kyungpook National University, School of Medicine, Daegu, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Background: The etiology of pleural effusions often remained unknown notwithstanding surgical pleural biopsy and further clinical observation. A better understanding of clinical characteristics of patients with idiopathic pleural effusion (IPE) may improve the ability to differentiate between IPEs and cytology-negative malignant pleural effusions (MPEs) and facilitate the identification of patients requiring invasive investigation. However, little is known about the clinical factors that can help distinguish patients with IPE from those with cytology-negative MPE. Read More

Quillen College of Medicine and Washington University of St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri. Electronic address:

Background: Patients with left ventricular ejection fractions between 40% and 49% either discovered de novo, having declined from ≥50%, or improved from <40% have been described as heart failure (HF) with mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF). Though clinical signs and symptoms are similar to other phenotypes, possible prognostic differences and therapeutic responses reinforce the need for further understanding of patients' characteristics especially in a rural community based population. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical characteristics, comorbidities and prognosis of a rural patient population with HFmrEF. Read More
