The spleen is one of the organs that is affected early in the first decade of life in SCD patients. Splenectomy has shown a high success rate in improving the quality of life in SCD patients, through eliminating acute splenic sequestration cri...

Sudden cardiac arrest as a presenting symptom of mitral valve prolapse.
https://doi.org/10.1136/bcr-2021-245734
BMJ Case Reports; Aderibigbe FJ, Mckenzie K et. al.

Jan 19th, 2022 - Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common and predominantly benign condition; however, occasional reports of cardiac arrest in individuals with MVP have raised concern for a malignant subtype. The risk of sudden cardiac arrest in MVP is twice as high as that in the general population. The exact aetiology and risk predictors are elusive, but identification is necessary, if we are to protect patien...

Jan 19th, 2022 - Myofascial pain is a complex health condition that affects the majority of the general population. Myalgia has been recognized as a symptom of long COVID syndrome. The treatment for long COVID syndrome-related myalgia lacks research. Dry needling is a technique that involves the insertion of a needle into the tissue of, or overlaying, a pain point. Wet needling is the addition of an injection o...

https://doi.org/10.1136/bcr-2021-245632
BMJ Case Reports; Vilaça M, Silva C et. al.

Jan 19th, 2022 - Patients with cancer and pre-existing autoimmune diseases have been excluded from immunotherapy clinical trials. So, studying these patients who received immunotherapy is critical to increasing evidence of the treatment's safety and efficacy in this population. Furthermore, a complete and durable response to immunotherapy in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is rare. Therefore, it i...

Cardiology in the Young; Mishra C, Kadiyani L et. al.

Jan 18th, 2022 - Down syndrome is a well-recognised genetic condition associated with several comorbidities. Although CHD is common in Down syndrome, transposition of the great arteries is exceptionally rare. We describe a neonate with Down syndrome who presented with transient abnormal myelopoiesis and transposition of the great arteries. Down syndrome may accelerate pulmonary hypertension in transposition of ...

Handbook of Clinical Neurology; Saionz EL, Busza A et. al.

Jan 18th, 2022 - Blindness is a common sequela after stroke affecting the primary visual cortex, presenting as a contralesional, homonymous, visual field cut. This can occur unilaterally or, less commonly, bilaterally. While it has been widely assumed that after a brief period of spontaneous improvement, vision loss becomes stable and permanent, accumulating data show that visual training can recover some of th...

Handbook of Clinical Neurology; Martin KC, Ketchabaw WT et. al.

Jan 18th, 2022 - The language system is perhaps the most unique feature of the human brain's cognitive architecture. It has long been a quest of cognitive neuroscience to understand the neural components that contribute to the hierarchical pattern processing and advanced rule learning required for language. The most important goal of this research is to understand how language becomes impaired when these neural...

BMC Gastroenterology; Chen Q, Gao M et. al.

Jan 18th, 2022 - The association between iron-metabolism-related variables and liver fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is now well known.
