Periodontal treatment of patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Gen Dent 2022 Jul-Aug;70(4):67-71

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare condition in which fragile vascular walls lead to increased risks of bleeding, cerebral abscesses, arteriovenous malformations, anemia, and thrombosis. To date, no protocol has been established for optimizing the clinical outcomes of periodontal treatment in patients with this condition. The aim of this case report is to describe a safe clinical approach to periodontal treatment in a patient with HHT. Read More

Functional Alterations Involved in Increased Bleeding in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Mouse Models.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 19;9:871903. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Universidad de Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain.

Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal-dominant genetic disorder involving defects in two predominant genes known as endoglin (; HHT-1) and activin receptor-like kinase 1 (; HHT-2). It is characterized by mucocutaneous telangiectases that, due to their fragility, frequently break causing recurrent epistaxis and gastrointestinal bleeding. Because of the severity of hemorrhages, the study of the hemostasis involved in these vascular ruptures is critical to find therapies for this disease. Read More

Hemangioma of the maxillary sinus: A benign and rare cause of epistaxis.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Aug 28;17(8):2607-2611. Epub 2022 May 28.

Radiology Department - CHU Hassan II. Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, Sidi Mohamed BenAbdellah University. Fez, Morocco.

Hemangioma of the facial sinuses is a rare pathology, and given the lack of clinical specificity, the differential diagnosis with a malignant lesion often arises. We report the case of a 32-year-old patient who consulted for recurrent epistaxis of moderate severity. The preoperative diagnosis of a hemangioma of the left maxillary sinus was based on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging data, confirmed by the anatomopathological study of the surgical specimen, preceded by an embolization that facilitated the endoscopic surgical excision.

Impact of minor bleeds on confidence in anticoagulation therapy, adherence to treatment and quality of life in patients using a non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant for atrial fibrillation.

Curr Med Res Opin 2022 Jun 14:1-4. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Pharmacotherapy, Epidemiology and Economy, Faculty Pharmacy, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Objective: In a previous study on the reasons for discontinuation of novel oral anticoagulation therapy (NOAC) in patients with atrial fibrillation, we showed that minor bleeding was the second most important reason for NOAC discontinuation. This finding suggest that the impact of minor bleeds on the patient's perspective on NOACs cannot be ignored, especially those minor bleeds for which the patient searched medical care. We therefore performed a study in which we explored the impact of minor bleed (clinically relevant non-major bleeds) on patient confidence in therapy, adherence to treatment and quality of life in AF patients using NOAC's.

Cureus 2022 Apr 27;14(4):e24517. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Internal Medicine, Hayatabad Medical Complex Peshawar, Peshawar, PAK.

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, is a very rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder that leads to abnormal blood vessel formation in the skin, mucus membranes (called telangiectasia), and organs such as the lung, liver, and brain. It occurs due to a mutation in one of the , , and  genes, which code for the formation of blood vessels. The most common symptom is recurring nosebleed (epistaxis; due to rupture of nasal mucosal telangiectasia), which begins in childhood and affects about 90-95% of people with HHT. Read More

Acute Leukaemias in Bauchi State, Northeastern Nigeria: Pattern of Presentations and Clinical Entities.

West Afr J Med 2022 May;39(5):497-500

Department of Chemical Pathology, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, State, Nigeria.

Background: Acute leukaemias are very aggressive diseases that run a rapidly fatal course if not promptly diagnosed and appropriately treated. The clinical presentations range from bone marrow failure such as anaemia, neutropenia or thrombocytopenia to features of organ infiltrations such as lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, etc, but presentations may be non-specific. Misdiagnosis is very common with delay in diagnosis and prompt treatment being the causes of high morbidity and mortality in acute leukaemias. Read More

Tisotumab vedotin in Japanese patients with recurrent/metastatic cervical cancer: Results from the innovaTV 206 study.

Cancer Sci 2022 May 28. Epub 2022 May 28.

Saitama Medical University International Medical Center, Saitama, Japan.

New treatments, particularly second-line options, are needed to improve outcomes for patients with recurrent/metastatic cervical cancer (r/mCC). Tisotumab vedotin (TV) is an antibody-drug conjugate directed to tissue factor, a transmembrane protein commonly expressed in cancer cells, to deliver cytotoxic monomethyl auristatin E. This single-arm, open-label phase 1/2 trial evaluated the consistency of safety and efficacy outcomes of TV in Japanese patients with r/mCC to bridge the current findings with those reported in previous trials in non-Japanese patients in the United States and Europe.

Safety of restarting continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy following endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery.

World J Otorhinolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2022 Mar 31;8(1):61-65. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Philadelphia USA.

Objectives: Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are at increased risk of perioperative and postoperative morbidity. The use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in the perioperative period may be of potential benefit. However, among patients who have undergone endonasal skull base surgery, many surgeons avoid prompt re-initiation of CPAP therapy due to the theoretical increased risk of epistaxis, excessive dryness, pneumocephalus, repair migration, intracranial introduction of bacteria, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak.
