Pituitary apoplexy induced by gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist administration: a rare complication of prostate cancer treatment.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2020 Jun 4;2020. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Department of Endocrinology, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

Summary: Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, currently used in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, have been described as a rare cause of pituitary apoplexy, a potentially life-threatening clinical condition. We report the case of a 69-year-old man with a known pituitary macroadenoma who was diagnosed with prostate cancer and started treatment with GnRH agonist leuprorelin (other hormones were not tested before treatment).

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2020 Feb 26;2020. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

Departments of Diabetes and EndocrinologyConnolly Hospital Blanchardstown, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin, Ireland.

Summary: We present three cases of acute diabetic neuropathy and highlight a potentially underappreciated link between tightening of glycaemic control and acute neuropathies in patients with diabetes. Case 1: A 56-year-old male with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (T2DM) was commenced on basal-bolus insulin. He presented 6 weeks later with a diffuse painful sensory neuropathy and postural hypotension. Read More

Early and late outcomes of surgical repair of double-chambered right ventricle: a single-centre experience.

Cardiol Young 2020 Mar 17;30(3):409-412. Epub 2020 Feb 17.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Başkent University, Ankara, Turkey.

Objective: Double-chambered right ventricle is characterised by division of the outlet portion of the right ventricle by hypertrophy of the septoparietal trabeculations into two parts. We aim to report our experiences regarding the presenting symptoms of double-chambered right ventricle, long-term prognosis, including the recurrence rate and incidence of arrhythmias after surgery.

Methods: We retrospectively investigated 89 consecutive patients who were diagnosed to have double-chambered right ventricle and underwent a surgical intervention from 1995 to 2016. Read More

Concurrent pituitary apoplexy and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome in a patient with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jan;99(5):e18987

Department of Internal Medicine, HANSUNG Union Internal Medicine Clinic and Dialysis Center, Daegu, Republic of Korea.

Rationale: Pituitary apoplexy (PA) and posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) are rare neurologic diseases that show acute neuro-ophthalmologic symptoms such as headache, decreased visual acuity, and altered consciousness. These diseases are rarely found in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis, and simultaneous occurrence of these 2 diseases has not been reported.

Patient Concerns: The patient was a 75-year-old man with a history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and non-functioning pituitary macroadenoma. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jan;99(5):e18862

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, CH Lens, Lens, France.

Introduction: Horner's syndrome is an unusual side effect of epidural analgesia. We report an unusual symptom after epineural axis analgesia for labor, which happened three times in the same patient. Horner's syndrome occurrence following epidural catheterization should lead the anesthetic team to search for a subdural position of the catheter because of its potentially threatening complications.

SMART coils for intracranial aneurysm repair - a single center experience.

BMC Neurol 2020 Jan 29;20(1):38. Epub 2020 Jan 29.

Department of diagnostic and interventional Neuroradiology, University Medical Center Göttingen, Robert Koch Str. 40, 37075, Göttingen, Germany.

Background: Due to uniform stiffness of standard platinum coils, dense packing of intracranial aneurysms can be difficult to achieve, since stiffer coils can cause microcatheter prolapse or coil migration. SMART coils have a varying softness along the length of the coils to improve deliverability. We report our initial 2 year experience with the SMART coil system, including direct and follow-up results. Read More
