Hemolytic Anemia 19 Years after Mitral Valve Replacement with A Porcine Bioprosthesis

Debora Corsi, Michele Celiento, Stefano Pratali, Alberto Balbarini and Uberto Bortolotti

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 27, 2015

A 58-year-old man had undergone mitral valve replacement with a 27 mm Carpentier-Edwards porcine bioprosthesis (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, USA) in 1993. Nineteen years later he presented with dark urine, fatigue and moderate dyspnea denying any history of infection. He was in atrial fibrillation with a systolic mitral regurgitant murmur. Hematologic evaluation was consistent with haemolytic anemia; particularly, reduced hemoglobin, hematocrit and haptoglobin (6.6 mg/dl), and increased total b...

Traumatic Bilateral Renal Artery Thrombosis: A Case of Kidney Salvage with Local Lytic Therapy and Systemic Anticoagulation in the Setting of Poly-trauma

Allan Capote, Martin Goldman, Kevin Kemp and Ruby Skinner

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 28, 2015

With the advent of advances in endovascular techniques and interventional radiology, the treating physician has added very useful and relatively less invasive methods of managing otherwise complex traumatic injuries compared to open surgical techniques. One such application is in the treatment of acute traumatic solid organ injuries, and some of the earliest applications related to the management of blunt spleen and liver injuries. Acute traumatic renal artery occlusion is a rare pattern of kidn...

Vancomycin Hypersensitivity Reaction Presenting with Extensive Oral Ulcerations

Justin G. Hastings, Alok Vij and Anthony P. Fernandez

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 15, 2015

Vancomycin therapy is associated with several hypersensitivity reactions, the most common being the non-immunologically mediated 'red man syndrome'. Fever, rash, neutropenia, and other manifestations have also been variably associated with a vancomycin hypersensitivity reaction that is likely immunologically mediated. Here we report a 45-year old man who developed diffuse oral aphthous-like ulcers as the most prominent manifestation of vancomycin hypersensitivity reaction. We identified only two...

Introduction of Basic and Advanced Techniques of Ophthalmic Surgery in Myanmar

Carl-Ludwig Schonfeld, Chaw Wai Lwin, Volker Klaub, San Hlaing, Thazin Shwe, Mya Thandar So, San Myint, Claudia Klaub, Tomas Schaal, Martin Gruterich and Tin Win

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 01, 2015

Purpose: We report our fist experience with the introduction of an external teaching programme in Myanmar, a country that has only recently opened to the rest of the world. Methods: 19 eyes in 18 patients were treated by surgical teams comprising a German senior surgeon and a local ophthalmologist. Diagnoses and treatment procedures were recorded, and visual acuity was measured before and 1-7 days after surgery....

Retrospective Comparison of Scleral Flap and Scleral Burial Techniques to Fixate A Scleral Sutured Intraocular Lens Concurrently with Penetrating Keratoplasty

Bora Yuksel, Alper Gulucu, Umut Duygu Uzunel and Tuncay Kusbeci

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 25, 2015

Definitive surgical treatment of aphakia in the presence of corneal opacity is secondary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation combined with penetrating keratoplasty (PK). The two main locations for IOL implantation are in the anterior chamber (ACIOL) and in the posterior chamber (PCIOL). Insertion of PCIOLs can be performed by capsular-supported, iris-supported, or transsclerally sutured PCIOL. Each technique has strengths and weaknesses with respect to surgical difficulty, operative time, and co...

Inflammation and Oxidative Stress in Retinal Diseases: The Role of Intracellular Signaling in the Retinal Pigment Epithelium

Melina V. Mateos, Paula E. Tenconi, Norma M. Giusto and Gabriela A. Salvador

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 23, 2015

Inflammation and oxidative stress (OS) are common factors involved in the pathogenesis of several retinal diseases that eventually end in vision loss and blindness, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy (DR), retinitis pigmentosa and uveitis. Most of the studies on the above mentioned diseases have been focused on the neural retina. However, in view of the importance of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in the maintenance of photoreceptors' (PR) viability and vi...

Corpora Amylacea in Neurodegenerative Diseases: Cause or Effect?

Troy T. Rohn

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 28, 2015

The presence of corpora amylacea (CA) in the CNS is associated with both normal aging and neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD). CA are spherical bodies ranging in diameter (10-50 micro meter) and whose origin has been documented to be derived from both neural and glial sources. CA are reported to be primarily composed of glucose polymers, but approximately 4% of the total weight of CA is consistently composed of protein. CA are typically loc...

Acute Treatment with Renal Denervation in a Patient with Resistant Hypertension and Hemorrhagic Stroke

Francesco Versaci, Antonio Trivisonno, Luca Brunese and Francesco Prati

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 28, 2015

A 49-year-old man with refractory hypertension was admitted to our hospital in a coma caused by hemorrhagic stroke. Severe hypertension was observed during hospitalization despite a full antihypertensive therapy. Considering the risk of enlargement of the intracranial hematoma, the decision was made to perform renal denervation (RDN). A significant blood pressure reduction was obtained after RDN. The patient had a progressive improvement of general conditions and came out of the coma after a few...

Reducing Sample Sizes in Phase II Trials based on Exact Binomial Tests by Shifting Design Parameters

Dirk Klingbiel, Qiyu Li and Martin Bigler

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 20, 2015

Currently, a large number of new anticancer agents is accompanied by constrained resources, requiring prioritization. In addition, emerging molecular subtypes subdivide common cancer entities into rare diseases, making it harder to conduct phase II trials as a crucial step in drug development and therapy optimization. We extend a recent work by Khan et al. on the design of phase II clinical trial based on exact binomial tests....

Primary Total Elbow Arthroplasty in the Treatment of Complex Elbow Fracture: A Case Report

Pedro Miguel Campos, Barbara Rosa, Andre Barros, Carlos Durao, Gloria Magalhaes, Clara Julio and Pedro Quinaz Neto

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 01, 2015

A 54-year-old male patient presented at our emergency department in the sequence of a motorcycle accident, which caused an open fracture of the left elbow, classified as type IIIB of Gustilo and Anderson. The X-ray showed comminuted fractures of distal humerus and proximal ulna with bone loss from both epiphysis. He started antibiotherapy and was submitted to immediate surgical debridement, provisional fixation with an external fixator and skin closure. The external fixator was removed 2 months ...
