Platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and all-cause mortality in general population: insights from national health and nutrition education survey.

Platelets 2019 Feb 13:1-6. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

a Division of Hospital Medicine , Virginia Commonwealth University , Richmond , VA , USA.

Platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is a novel marker of inflammation that has gained popularity, especially in prognostication of cardiac diseases and malignant conditions. Several studies have examined the relationship between PLR and disease-specific mortality but none has examined this relationship with all-cause mortality in general population. Therefore, we examined the relationship between PLR and all-cause mortality using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from the year 1999 to 2010. Read More

Irbesartan Induced Cutaneous Melanoma! Second Case in the Medical Literature!

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2019 Jan 9;7(1):121-123. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Medical Institute of the Ministry of Interior, Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Dermatologic Surgery, General Skobelev Nr 79, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Background: Drug-induced melanoma is a topic, concept or "reality" becoming more and more popular as the list of drugs considered as potential inducers of cutaneous melanoma is constantly growing. Interesting and current at the moment is the question/dilemma of "Irbesartan induced melanomas" and "Valsartan induced melanomas"! The following questions are without answers: 1) the general risk which angiotensin receptor blockers contain for potentiating the carcinogenesis and cancer development (as a whole); 2) available officialized data for withdrawal from the market of products with valsartan and irbesartan due to detected potential carcinogens-NDMA/NDEA, and 3) the missing official information on the most likely forms of cancer potentiated by these drugs. That is precisely why many questions remain open, and the inevitable assumption arises for the key, although according to some conspiratorial role of so-called "pharmaceutical giants" in the concept of drug-induced malignancies.

Drug-Induced Melanoma: Irbesartan Induced Cutaneous Melanoma! First Description in the World Literature!

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2019 Jan 9;7(1):114-116. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Medical Institute of the Ministry of Interior, Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Dermatologic Surgery, General Skobelev Nr 79, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Background: Melanoma appears to be a malignant disease, whose development can be potentiated by different drug groups. More and more data are in favour of the claim that commonly used antihypertensive drugs also contain the risk of developing melanoma. The most evidence is that angiotensin receptor blockers may be carcinogenic. Read More

Bacterial peritonitis in a patient with malignant ascites caused by pancreatic carcinoma: Case report and review of literature.

J Infect Chemother 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Infectious Diseases, The University of Tokyo Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Bacterial peritonitis, an infection of the ascitic fluid, can be classified etiologically as spontaneous or secondary bacterial peritonitis. The former is mainly caused by portal hypertension and its subsequent effects, whereas the latter is caused by the direct dissemination of bacteria into the peritoneal cavity. Previous reports have described some distinguishing features of these two entities. Read More

Simon Stewart, PhD Professor, Cardiology Unit, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Adelaide, Australia.

Background: The impact of different patterns of multimorbidity in heart failure (HF) on health outcomes is unknown.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that, independent of the extent of comorbidity, there are distinctive phenotypes of multimorbidity that convey an increased risk for premature mortality in patients hospitalized with HF.

Methods: We analyzed the clinical profile and health outcomes of 787 patients hospitalized with HF participating in a multidisciplinary HF management program with a minimum 12-month follow-up. Read More

Catecholamine response to exercise in patients with non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

J Physiol 2018 Dec 15. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Division of Cardiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Yawkey Suite 5B, Boston, MA, USA.

Key Points: Intense physical activity, a potent stimulus for sympathetic nervous system activation, is thought to increase the risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmias among patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). As a result, the majority of patients with HCM deliberately reduce their habitual physical activity after diagnosis and this lifestyle change puts them at risk for sequelae of a sedentary lifestyle: weight gain, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, insulin resistance, coronary artery disease, and increased morbidity and mortality. We show that plasma catecholamine levels remain stably low at exercise intensities below the ventilatory threshold, a parameter that can be defined during cardiopulmonary exercise testing, but rise rapidly at higher intensities of exercise.

The exaggerated salt-sensitive response in hypertensive transgenic rats (TGR mRen-2) fostered by a normotensive female.

Hypertens Res 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Center for Experimental Medicine, Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Prague, Czech Republic.

Suboptimal conditions during prenatal and early postnatal development can increase risk of hypertension later in life. We studied consequences of a changed perinatal environment by initiating the cross-fostering of homozygous Ren-2 transgenic rat (TGR) offspring to normotensive, transgene-negative control mothers, and vice versa. We hypothesized that cross-fostering to a normotensive female can attenuate the development of malignant hypertension in TGR offspring (TGRx) and change their salt-sensitive response. Read More

The toxicology of air pollution predicts its epidemiology.

Inhal Toxicol 2018 Aug - Aug;30(9-10):327-334. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

a The National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory , Environmental Protection Agency , Chapel Hill , NC , USA.

The epidemiologic investigation has successively delineated associations of air pollution exposure with non-malignant and malignant lung disease, cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, pregnancy outcomes, perinatal effects and other extra-pulmonary disease including diabetes. Defining these relationships between air pollution exposure and human health closely parallels results of an earlier epidemiologic investigation into cigarette smoking and environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), two other particle-related exposures. Humic-like substances (HULIS) have been identified as a chemical component common to cigarette smoke and air pollution particles. Read More

Awakening the sleeping kidney in a dialysis-dependent patient with fibromuscular dysplasia: A case report and review of literature.

World J Nephrol 2018 Nov;7(7):143-147

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Tygerberg Hospital and Stellenbosch University, Cape Town 7505, South Africa.

Renal artery stenosis is a common cause of secondary hypertension and chronic kidney disease. We present here a case of fibromuscular dysplasia that was treated with surgical revascularization, resulting in recovery of kidney function with eventual cessation of chronic dialysis. The case involves a 25-year-old female with coincidentally discovered hypertension, who underwent further investigations revealing a diagnosis of renal artery stenosis due to fibromuscular dysplasia.

Association of Preoperative Anemia With 30-Day Morbidity and Mortality Among Patients With Thyroid Cancer Who Undergo Thyroidectomy.

JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Anesthesiology, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla.

Importance: Despite the ease of preoperative anemia diagnosis and the availability of treatment options, the morbidity and mortality associated with this condition remain unacceptably high, and the literature describing the association of preoperative anemia with postoperative outcomes following thyroid surgery in patients with thyroid cancer remain sparse. Reporting outcomes in this patient population may help to facilitate preoperative optimization.

Objective: To assess whether an association exists between preoperative anemia and outcomes following thyroid surgery in patients with thyroid cancer. Read More

Conditions and Factors Associated With Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (from a National Population-Based Cohort Study).

Am J Cardiol 2019 Jan 30;123(2):249-253. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Brigham and Women's Hospital Heart & Vascular Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

The pathophysiology of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is heterogeneous, associated with systemic arteriopathies and inflammatory diseases, and often compounded by environmental precipitants, genetics, or stressors. However, the frequency of these associated conditions with SCAD on a population level remains unknown. Therefore, the objective of this analysis was to evaluate heterogeneous phenotypes of SCAD in the United States using data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample collected from January 1, 2004, to September 31, 2015.

Emergent airway management in a patient with tracheal stent: A lesson learned.

Saudi J Anaesth 2018 Oct-Dec;12(4):626-628

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Michigan, USA.

The prevalence of tracheal stents has increased in the past two decades for the management of malignant and benign central airway diseases for either palliation or definitive therapy. Recent placement of a tracheal stent has been associated with edema of the upper airway; therefore, these patients are at a great risk for airway collapse, especially within the days most recent to the procedure. The authors present the case of a morbidly obese patient with a tracheal stent admitted to the Intensive Care Unit who developed acute respiratory failure and was found to be "unable to ventilate, unable to intubate.
