Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 resolves Pringle maneuver in rats, both ischemia and reperfusion.

World J Hepatol 2020 May;12(5):184-206

Departments of Pharmacology and Pathology, School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, Zagreb 10000, Croatia.

Background: The Pringle maneuver [portal triad obstruction(PTO)] provides huge disturbances during ischemia and even more thereafter in reperfusion. Contrarily, a possible solution may be stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157, with already documented beneficial effects in ischemia/reperfusion conditions. Recently, BPC 157, as a cytoprotective agent, successfully resolved vessel occlusions in rats (ischemic colitis; deep vein thrombosis, superior anterior pancreaticoduodenal vein; bile duct cirrhosis) through rapid collateral vessel recruitment to circumvent vessel occlusion.

Diagnosis of Acute Mesenteric Ischemia in a Patient with End-Stage Renal Disease with Normal Serum Lactate.

Cureus 2020 Jan 20;12(1):e6708. Epub 2020 Jan 20.

Internal Medicine, AdventHealth, Orlando, USA.

Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a life-threatening vascular emergency and a diagnostic challenge for physicians. It represents a group of pathophysiologic processes that have a common end point, that is, bowel infarction, and has a nonspecific clinical picture and a high mortality rate. The most common underlying etiologies are arterial embolism, arterial thrombosis, nonocclusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI), and mesenteric venous thrombosis. Read More

Aggressive progression of Takayasu's arteritis in infancy: a case report.

Acta Clin Croat 2019 Sep;58(3):535-539

1Faculty of Medicine, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, Osijek, Croatia; 2Department of Traumatology, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Centre, Zagreb, Croatia; 3Department of Surgery, Dubrava University Hospital, Zagreb, Croatia; 4Department of Pediatric Surgery, Osijek University Hospital Centre, Osijek, Croatia; 5Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine, Osijek University Hospital Centre, Osijek, Croatia; 6Department of Pediatrics, Osijek University Hospital Centre, Osijek, Croatia.

Takayasu's arteritis (TA) affects the aorta and its branches. Immunosuppressants are the usual course of therapy, while surgery has been used in acute cases. There is only scant information on TA in infancy, and the nonspecific symptoms in the initial stage of the disease make the diagnosis difficult and delayed, thus increasing the mortality rate.

Rare Mesenteric Arterial Diseases: Fibromuscular Dysplasia and Segmental Arterial Mediolysis and Literature Review.

Intern Med 2019 Dec 22;58(23):3393-3400. Epub 2019 Jul 22.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Niigata University, Japan.

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) are noninflammatory, nonatherosclerotic arterial diseases that cause aneurysm, occlusion, and thromboses. These diseases are rarely seen in mesenteric arterial lesions; however, as they can be lethal if appropriate management is not provided, the accumulation of clinical information from cases is essential. We herein report the cases of a 57-year-old man diagnosed with FMD and a 63-year-old man diagnosed with SAM. Read More

Aortic valve perforation in the setting of Cogan's syndrome.

Echocardiography 2019 08 27;36(8):1590-1593. Epub 2019 Jun 27.

Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Alexandria, Egypt.

Cogan's syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by the coexistence of ocular and audio-vestibular manifestations. Systemic manifestations are quite unusual with pan-vasculitis and cardiac involvement reported in the form of aortitis with aortic aneurysm, dissection, or extremely rare aortic valve perforation. Hereby, we report a case of a 56-year-old woman presented with ocular, audio-vestibular, and systemic manifestations with medium-sized vasculitis in the form of multiple splenic artery aneurysms, superior mesenteric artery thrombosis, and cardiovascular involvement in the form of aortic regurgitation due to noncoronary cusp perforation.

Visceral arterial embolization prior to multivisceral transplantation in recipient with cirrhosis, extensive portomesenteric thrombosis, and hostile abdomen: Performance and outcome analysis.

Clin Transplant 2019 08 11;33(8):e13645. Epub 2019 Jul 11.

Department of Anesthesia, University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami, Florida, USA.

Multivisceral transplant (MVT) for cirrhosis, and portomesenteric vein thrombosis (PVT), is fraught with life-threatening thrombo-hemorrhagic complications. Embolization of native viscera has been attempted in a handful of cases with mixed results. We carried out a comparative analysis of angiographic, intra-operative, and pathological findings in three recipients of MVT who were deemed exceptionally high hemorrhagic risk and therefore underwent preoperative visceral embolization.

Kounis Syndrome—not a Single-organ Arterial Disorder but a Multisystem and Multidisciplinary Disease

Balkan Med J 2019 07 14;36(4):212-221. Epub 2019 Jun 14.

Department of Cardiology, Patras University School of Medicine, Patras, Greece

Coronary symptoms associated with conditions related to mast cell activation and inflammatory cell interactions, such as those involving T-lymphocytes and macrophages, further inducing allergic, hypersensitivity, anaphylactic, or anaphylactic insults, are currently referred to as the Kounis syndrome. Kounis syndrome is caused by inflammatory mediators released during allergic insults, post-inflammatory cell activation, and interactions via multidirectional stimuli. A platelet subset of 20% with high- and low-affinity IgE surface receptors is also involved in this process. Read More
