Type 2 Diabetes in the Elderly: Challenges in a Unique Patient Population

David Bradley and Willa Hsueh

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 08, 2016

In the older patient population, rates of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and obesity are reaching epidemic proportions. In fact, older patients will soon constitute the majority of patients with T2D in most developed countries. The higher prevalence of T2D in older individuals is seen in both men and women and across racial and ethnic groups. However, certain ethnic groups are disproportionately affected and successful strategies must account for these fundamental differences....

A Longitudinal Study of the Prediction of Pathologic Spinal Fractures in Multiple Myeloma with Trabecular Microarchitecture and CT-Based Finite Element Analyses

Miyuki Takasu, Chihiro Tani, Yoko Kaichi, Baba Yasutaka, Chikako Fujioka, Masao Kiguchi, Kumi Oshima, Yoshiaki Kuroda, Akira Sakai, Tatsuo Ichinohe and Kazuo Awai

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: August 16, 2016

A total of 22 vertebral bodies from 14 patients with multiple myeloma were examined by 64-detector row CT prior to follow-up CT that showed new pathologic spinal fractures. Tissue bone mineral density (tBMD), trabecular parameters, and mechanical properties were calculated for three vertebrae, comprising a vertebra that would become fractured and the two adjacent vertebrae. Areas of lytic lesions were also obtained in the axial images containing the largest lytic lesions....

Screening Mammography: A Continued Debate Over the Appropriate Guidelines

Danielle Sharek

Article Type: Short Commentary | First Published: July 21, 2016

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer among American women, and approximately one out of every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Because screening mammography (periodic mammographic examination of both breasts in asymptomatic women to detect breast cancer) has been successful at reducing mortality from breast cancer by 30 to 40%, most medical organizations in the United States, have recommended yearly mammography starting at age 40 since t...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 20, 2016

Background: High user cost is a known barrier to emergency obstetric care for the poor, contributing to excessive maternal mortality. Financial concerns about seeking healthcare may be compounded by an underestimation of obstetric risk and the cost of losing a wife. Methods: Focus groups investigated the cost of marriage, obstetric care and maternal death in Bunia, Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2008....

Donation Over Age 70 and Older İs an Obstacle for Kidney Transplantation?

Ethem Unal and Aylin Acar

Article Type: Editorial Letter | First Published: July 17, 2016

he profound organ shortage has resulted in longer waiting times and increased mortality for those awaiting kidney transplantation. Consequently, patients are turning to older living donors. It is unclear if an upper age limit for donation should exist, both in terms of recipient and donor outcomes. However, there is a fact that surgery can present additional risks for older patients; this requires physicians to be especially careful about who they deem fit to undergo donor transplant procedures....

Super Giant Coronary Aneurysm in an Algerian Boy with Kawasaki Disease

Houda Boudiaf, Manel Gherbi and Moussa Achir

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 22, 2016

The patient is a 5-year-old male with findings suggestive of Kawasaki disease. He was treated with intravenous gamma globulin (IVG) and oral aspirin. Because the fever persisted, he received additional IVG and intravenous methylprednisolone. Echocardiography showed diffuse dilatation of the right coronary artery (RCA; 13 mm) and proximal dilatation of the left main coronary artery (LMCA; 8 mm)....

A Piriformis Syndrome Diagnosed with Lomber Disc Herniation: 3 Cases Report

Burcu Metin Okmen and Korgun Okmen

Article Type: Case Series | First Published: July 23, 2016

The piriformis syndrome is an entrapment neuropathy emerging with the compression of sciatic nerve by a muscle due to its close proximity with piriformis muscle. However its pathophysiology hasn't been understood clearly, it is thought that it arises from the oedema and inflammation in the piriformis muscle. This syndrome, which we meet with sciatica table clinically, is often likened to lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Multidisciplinary, the treatment of piriformis syndrome may include the adminis...

Progress in an Adult Male Suffering from Coronary Artery Ectasia as Assessed with Exercise Stress Testing: A Nine-Year Case Report

Charles Micallef

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 11, 2016

A nine-year history of a young to middle-aged male who was diagnosed with coronary artery ectasia after presenting with impaired vision in one of his eyes is presented. Throughout this period, four exercise stress tests were carried out and improvements were noted: from a positive stress test indicative of myocardial ischemia, the outcome gradually progressed to negative. A distinct feature of this case is that the patient was only on moderate statin and dual antiplatelet therapy and his cholest...

Dilated Cardiomyopathy due to Vitamin D Deficiency

Nalan Karabayir, Kelesoglu E, Helen Bornau, Kazim Oztarhan, Aktas D and Erdem A

Article Type: Case Series | First Published: August 06, 2016

Dilated cardiomyopathy, which mostly has an idiopathic etiology or is caused by genetic inheritance or infection, may cause irreversible congestive heart failure. Hypocalcemia is a rare etiology of reversible dilated cardiomyopathy. Cardiogenic shock related to hypocalcemic cardiomyopathy is a rare event. Here we report two cases with congestive heart failure who was diagnosed as having dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to hypocalcemia....
