Roger W Byard

Forensic Sci Med Pathol 2020 Jul 10. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology, Adelaide Medical School, The University of Adelaide, Frome Road, Level 2 Helen Mayo Building North, Adelaide, SA, 5005, Australia.

The flagship of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), the Batavia, was wrecked on the morning of the 4th of June 1629 on an isolated reef of the Houtman Abrolhos islands off the coast of Western Australia. The majority of crew and passengers (180-250, including 30 women and children) were able to reach an island which they called Batavia's Graveyard (now known as Beacon Island). After the commander, Francisco Pelsaert, sailed to Batavia for help, Jeronimus Cornelisz took control. Read More

Long-term blood pressure variability, incidence of hypertension and changes in renal function in type 2 diabetes.

J Hypertens 2020 Jul 6. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

University of Genoa and IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, Genova.

Objectives: Long-term visit-to-visit SBP variability (VVV) predicts cerebro-cardiovascular and renal events in patients with hypertension. Whether VVV predicts hypertension and/or chronic kidney disease is currently unknown. We assessed the role of VVV on the development of hypertension and changes in renal function in patients with type 2 diabetes and normal blood pressure (NBP) in a real-life clinical setting.

Hemodynamic monitoring in patients with venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(12):792

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai 200032, China.

Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is an effective mechanical circulatory support modality that rapidly restores systemic perfusion for circulatory failure in patients. Given the huge increase in VA-ECMO use, its optimal management depends on continuous and discrete hemodynamic monitoring. This article provides an overview of VA-ECMO pathophysiology, and the current state of the art in hemodynamic monitoring in patients with VA-ECMO. Read More

Evaluation of radial artery pulse pressure effects on detection of stroke volume changes after volume loading maneuvers in cardiac surgical patients.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(12):787

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

Background: Fluid responsiveness is defined as an increase in cardiac output (CO) or stroke volume (SV) of >10-15% after fluid challenge (FC). However, CO or SV monitoring is often not available in clinical practice. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether changes in radial artery pulse pressure (rPP) induced by FC or passive leg raising (PLR) correlates with changes in SV in patients after cardiac surgery.

Rectal cancer patients with downstaging after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and radical resection do not benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(12):743

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Changhai Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Background: Whether adjuvant chemotherapy is beneficial for rectal cancer patients who respond well to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCRT) and undergo radical resection is controversial. This study aimed to assess the effect of adjuvant chemotherapy on the oncological outcomes of ypT0-2N0 rectal cancer patients after NCRT and radical resection, and identify the prognostic factors.

Methods: The clinical and pathological data of rectal cancer patients with ypT0-2N0 who underwent NCRT and radical resection between January, 2010 and June, 2018 were collected and retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Factors influencing the length of stay after mediastinal tumor resection in the setting of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS)-TUBELESS protocol.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(12):740

Department of Thoracic Surgery and Oncology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, State Key Laboratory of Respiratory Disease, National Clinical Research Center for Respiratory Disease, Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Health, Guangzhou, China.

Background: Prolonged length of stay after surgery is considered to increase cost and hospital-acquired complications. Therefore, we aimed to identify the risk factors that were associated with an increased length of stay after mediastinal tumor resection in the setting of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS)-TUBELESS protocol.

Methods: This prospective cohort study collected data on consecutive patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) resection for mediastinal tumor between December 2015 and November 2018 at a single center in China. Read More

Many studies have shown that marijuana can negatively affect the cognitive development of adolescents. For some individuals, marijuana use may also initiate opioid use, dose escalation, and opioid use disorder. States that legalize marijuana should help adolescents through regulation of advertising and availability of marijuana-infused edibles. Read More

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(11):693

Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, The Heart Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, USA.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has shocked the world and caused morbidity and mortality on an unprecedented level in the era of modern medicine. Evidence generated to-date on the virulence and pathogenicity of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) suggests that COVID-19 may be considered a perfect storm, caused by a nature's virtually perfect biological weapon. This conclusion is supported by an updated analysis of pathogenesis and clinical progression of this infectious disease. Read More

The diagnostic utility of pleural markers for tuberculosis pleural effusion.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):607

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Naval Special Medical Center, The Naval Military Medical University, Shanghai 200433, China.

Tuberculosis pleural effusion (TPE) is common in clinical practice, and its diagnosis remains a challenge for clinicians. Ziehl-Neelsen staining, PE Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture, and biopsy are the gold standards for TPE diagnosis; however, they are time-consuming, invasive, observer-dependent, and insensitive. PE markers represent a rapid, low-cost, and non-invasive objective diagnostic tool for TPE. Read More

Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry combined with UF-5000i urine flow cytometry to directly identify pathogens in clinical urine specimens within 1 hour.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):602

Medical Technology School of Xuzhou Medical University, Xuzhou 221004, China.

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common hospital-associated infectious. The traditional laboratory diagnosis method for UTI requires at least 24 hours, and it cannot provide the etiology basis for the clinic in time. The aim of our study is to develop a new method for pathogenic diagnosis of UTI by combining matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) and UF-5000i from urine samples directly within 1 hour.

Background: Whether routine urinary analysis has a net benefit for urinary tract infection (UTI) screening is unclear.

Methods: Using the laboratory information system (LIS), we retrospectively extracted the data of urine culture and routine analysis between January 2017 and April 2017.

Identifying optimal candidates of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) sorafenib in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):587

Department of Gastroenterology, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

Background: Sorafenib has been recommended as the first-line treatment and shown to prolong median overall survival (OS) of patients with advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, a growing amount of research has supported the application of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with advanced-stage HCC. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of TACE and sorafenib and identify the prognostic factors related to OS for Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage C patients with PS 1 but without vascular invasion or extrahepatic spread.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):583

Department of Surgery, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

Recently, a growing number of earlier studies showed the application of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) plus sorafenib in patients diagnosed at the advanced-stage HCC. This study aimed to compare the outcomes of RFA plus sorafenib versus sorafenib alone and identify prognostic factors related to OS for BCLC stage C patients with PS 1 but without vascular invasion or extrahepatic spread.
