Could Accidental Ischemic Attacks Protect Against Subsequent Ischemic Reperfusion Injury?

Mohamed S. A. Mohamed

Article Type: Retrospective Study | First Published: August 20, 2015

Heart failure is the end result of various cardiac diseases that might be of ischemic or non-ischemic etiology. Implantation of ventricular assisting devices has been introduced as a bridge to heart transplantation, when heart failure reaches a critical degree of decompensation. The ischemic background of heart failure was suggested to have a protective effect in comparison to the non-ischemic background, based on the principles of ischemic conditioning....

Stem Cell Transplantation to Treat Severe Refractory Multiple Sclerosis

Athanasia Mouzaki, Marios I Garyfallou and Kokona Chatzantoni

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 13, 2015

In severe, drug-resistant Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Stem Cell Transplantation (SCT) was introduced as a treatment option about 20 years ago. Application of autologous SCT is based on the assumption that MS is not inherited in a Mendelian fashion and the auto reactive immune system can be replaced by a healthy one. Allogeneic SCT ensures that all leukocytes are of donor origin, but is applied rarely. Both approaches are fraught with problems resulting, mainly, from the high-intensity pre-transplan...

Family Oriented Care: Opportunities for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

Diego Garcia-Huidobro and Tai Mendenhall

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 31, 2015

Even though life expectancy has increased in industrialized countries, chronic diseases and mental illnesses are continuous health challenges. Thus, new strategies to further improve health must be implemented. Because family contexts are where health behaviors are usually learned, developed, maintained and changed, targeting family systems (rather than individual patients) is an option to further improving the health status of individuals, families, and communities. This article will review pos...

Observed Experiences: Cultural Differences in Caring for Dying Patients in Malaysia

Loh Ee Chin

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 02, 2015

Little has been described about the cultural differences in caring for dying patients in Malaysia. This paper outlines three case studies in which the simple action of hair combing for patients by relations of different ethnicity, language, and cultural background may convey very different meanings to the people involved. The cases add insight to our understanding as practitioners on how we should seek to understand and be aware of the differences between ourselves and the people we care for in ...

Incidental Non-Cardiovascular, Non-Pulmonary Findings Identified in a Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening Population: Prevalence and Clinical Implications

Michal Klysik, David Lynch, Nicholas Stence and Kavita Garg

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 30, 2015

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Recently, the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) demonstrated that, relative to chest x-ray, a 20% decrease in mortality was observed for high risk subjects screened with low dose chest CT. Chest CT unavoidably images non-cardiovascular, non-pulmonary organs such as thyroid, adrenals, liver, kidneys and other structures in the upper abdomen. Moreover, when utilizing a low dose screening-chest CT protocol, the images are often noisy an...
