Breast Cancer Survivors: Is Routine 'Mammographic Only' follow up Imaging Enough or is it Time for Personalised follow up?

Gaurav Jyoti Bansal, Thomas Telford and Kevin Pinto

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 20, 2019

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, accounting for approximately 15% of all cancers. Over 85% of these people survive beyond 5 years after diagnosis, due to continual progressions in early detection and treatment quality. Despite advances in detection and treatment, 20-30% of patients develop local relapse or distant metastasis. Molecular subtyping of breast cancers based on receptor expression has been introduced in clinical practice and has developed into an important tool in predicting prognosis and constructing personalised management plans for breast cancer sufferers....

Breast Fibromatosis: Case Report, Case Series, and Mini Review

Alicia Huff Vinyard, DO, Rachel Berger, MS-IV, TolgaOzmen, MD and Eli Avisar, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 15, 2019

Fibromatosis of the breast is a rare, benign tumor, lacking metastatic potential, but can be aggressive and create issues with loco-regional control if not adequately treated. In the literature, fibromatosis of the breast is often discussed only in case reports and small case series. The consensus on treatment remains wide local excision, however, other therapies have been described. In discussion of an interesting case presentation of what we have defined as secondary breast fibromatosis, we reviewed relevant treatment modalities and discussed proper treatment for this patient. Our aims of th...

Iatrogenic Related to the Knowledge Deficit of Patient Safety in the Care: A Descriptive Analysis

Eliza Miranda Ramos, Matheus Dullius Lima, Valter Aragao do nascimento, Ph.D and Elaine Cristina Fernandes Baez Sarti

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 22, 2019

Iatrogenic conditions are those that result from the intervention of the multidisciplinary health team, whether correct or incorrect, justified or not, but which result in detrimental consequences for the patient's health. Few studies have focused on assessing the risks to patients, especially those hospitalized in emergency and intensive care services, and only in the last decades attention has been drawn to the importance of these problems...

It had been established that ABO blood group system associated with some diseases or disorders. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of ABO blood group on anthropometric indices among apparently healthy young adults of Yoruba ethnicity. Eighty apparently healthy young adults who were purposely selected participated in the study after screening for the ABO blood groups following the standard protocol. They were divided into four equal groups; 20 in each of blood groups A, B, AB and O who were age- and sex- matched....

The Role of Prolyl Oligopeptidase in Microtubule-Associated Processes and Cognitive Impairment

Nuria Trallero, Ariadna Anunciacion-Llunell, Roger Prades and Teresa Tarrago

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 29, 2019

Prolyl oligopeptidase (POP) is a cytosolic serine protease with prominent expression in the brain. Inhibition of this enzyme leads to cognition-enhancing and neuroprotective effects in animal models with cognitive deficits. However, the biological function of POP remains unknown. Although in the past it was though that its catalytic activity was responsible for its physiological role, lately it has been hypothesized that POP is involved in the inositol pathway and that it interacts with several proteins....

A Dedicated Orthopaedic Trauma Admission Document Significantly Improves Recording of Patient Information

Jefferies JG, Brown CD and Shields D

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 24, 2019

Meticulous documentation in clinical records has been shown to improve patient care and clinician performance. Conversely, poor documentation is associated with an increased risk of adverse events. The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) issues guidance on the contents of surgical admissions documentation. Audit highlighted frequent omission of key criteria set out by RCS with freehand documentation. We set out to design, implement, and evaluate an orthopaedic admission proforma for our trauma patient population....

Pseudoaneurysm of the Deep Femoral Artery Following Internal Fixation for Pertrochanteric Fracture: A Report of 2 Cases

Kedous MA, Miladi M, Msakni A, Rkhami M, Chebbi W, Zaraa M and Mbarek M

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 01, 2019

Pertrochanteric fractures count among the most frequent fractures in elderly persons but their vascular complications are rare. We present two cases of pseudoaneurysm following internal fixation for pertrochanteric fractures in relatively young patients aged 67 and 68-years-old. The post-operative follow up was marked by the onset of a pulsatile swelling in the inner thigh. The diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm of the deep femoral artery was made by arterio-venous Doppler-ultrasound and CT-angiography. The pseudoaneurysms were managed by open surgery for the first case and by a stent for the other o...
