Why Does Diverticulitis Perforate?

Wolfgang B. Gaertner

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: February 04, 2015

Diverticular disease is a common entity in the western world with an increasing incidence globally. This probably reflects both an increase in detection and an ageing population. The pathophysiology of diverticular disease is likely multifactorial involving dietary habits, changes in colonic pressures and motility, and colon wall structural changes. Not only has the understanding of the natural history of the disease become more complex than previously believed but the treatment algorithms have ...

The increasing number of diabetes patients represents a health challenge due to disease-related, end-organs complications. Hyperglycemia is considered the proximal trigger of an intricate cascade of molecular processes that progressively deteriorate tissues and organs, leading to the onset of clinical complications. Lower extremity ulcerations and their ensued refractoriness to heal can potentially result in amputation and disability and remain the second most feared diabetic complication. We ha...

Fontan Physiology: Anaesthetic Implications for Non-Cardiac Surgery: A Case Report

Harikrishnan Kothandan, Lim Michelle Leanne and Shital Kumar Sharad Shah

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 06, 2015

Patients with congenital heart diseases are a growing population and noncardiac surgeries will become an important health care issue. Modification of surgical techniques and medical advances has improved the survival of patients with complex congenital cardiac abnormalities, resulting in more adult patients with fontan physiology presenting for non-cardiac surgery. The older fontan patient is at particular risk of thromboembolism, arrhythmias, progressive ventricular dysfunction, protein losing ...

Phase I Clinical Study of Survivin-Derived Peptide Vaccine for Patients with Advanced Gastrointestinal Cancers

Fukino Satomi, Hiroaki Shima, Toru Mizuguchi, Toshihiko Torigoe, Goro Kutomi, Yasutoshi Kimura, Yoshihiko Hirohashi, Yasuaki Tamura, Tomohide Tsukahara, Takayuki Kanaseki, Akari Takahashi, Hiroko Asanuma, Yoichi M. Ito, Hiroshi Hayashi, Osamu Sugita, Noriyuki Sato and Koichi Hirata

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 04, 2015

Survivin is a member of the Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein (IAP) family. It is expressed in fetal tissues but not in normal adult tissues. Since Survivin is over expressed in various types of tumor tissues as well as tumor cell lines, it is considered to be suitable as a target antigen for cancer vaccine therapy. We identified an HLA-A24-restricted antigenic peptide, SVN-2B (AYACNTSTL), derived from a splicing variant of Survivin-2B. In the present study, we carried out a phase I clinical study ...

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: February 06, 2015

Background: While some therapies implemented for newly diagnosed Diabetes Mellitus (DM) or impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) are effective in preventing cardiovascular events, investigations of coronary plaque in patients with newly diagnosed DM or IGT are lacking. Methods: We evaluated 96 patients with acute coronary syndrome. The External Elastic Membrane (EEM), Lumen Cross-Sectional Area (CSA), plaque CSA, and plaque burden in the Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery proximal to the lesion, d...

Proposing a Novel Concept to Evaluate Safety of Supraglottic Devices Regarding Seal Pressure during Laparoscopic Surgery

Jose M. Belena, Monica Nunez and Alfonso Vidal

Article Type: Opinion | First Published: January 23, 2015

It is a fact that Supraglottic Airway Devices (SAD) are currently present at many clinical scenarios in anesthesia and they are also a good alternative to endotracheal intubation in some routine anesthetic procedures. Nowadays, laparoscopy is one of the most common and widely established surgical techniques. This procedures increase airway pressure due to the peritoneal insufflation and consequently the risk of regurgitation and aspiration. Over the last two decades, many studies have establishe...

A Case of Localized Neuroblastoma in Caffey Disease, with Early and Uncommon Progression

Manuela Pagano, Chiara Galletto, Maurizio Bianchi and Franca Fagioli

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 21, 2015

Background: Caffey disease is a rare syndrome caused by mutation in the alpha-1 collagen type I gene, not described in literature as a predisposing condition to cancer development. Observation: We report a case of a 6-years-old female diagnosed with Caffey disease that developed a localized neuroblastoma. The patient had a poor clinical and radiological response with unusual disease dissemination and progression until death. Conclusion: The case is a rare example of rapid progression of localize...

Diverse Genotype Presentation of the Saudi-Type Poly A Signal Mutation (αTsaudiα) in the Population of Bahrain

Nabeel Al Moamen, Fawzia Mahdi, Ahmed Thabet, Rugaya Abbas, Ebtihal Salman and Ahmed Al Alawi

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: January 15, 2015

A total of 1187 patients with α-thalassemia phenotype presentation have been recruited for this investigation. Preliminary diagnosis of α-thalassemia was based on low hematological indices (MCV and MCH) of the red blood cells and/or persistently low hemoglobin levels, along with low or normal levels of HbA2 and absence of iron deficiency. Th molecular diagnosis of α-thalassemia was established by using a commercially available α-thalassemia strip assay (α-Globin StripAss...

Macular Multifocal Granular Hyperfluorescence on Fluorescein Angiography

Taiichi Hikichi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 30, 2015

Purpose: To investigate the causes of multifocal granular hyperfluorescence at the macula on Fluorescein Angiography (FA) in Japanese patients. Methods: I retrospectively studied 1,457 consecutive Japanese patients (1,457 eyes) who underwent digital simultaneous FA and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). Results: One hundred forty-seven of the 1,457 eyes had multifocal granular hyperfluorescence on FA images. Of the 147 eyes, 94 (64%) eyes had polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV); 25 (17%) ...
