The Journal of International Medical Research; Lang Y, Sun C et. al.

Sep 16th, 2021 - Hemoptysis in children is caused by various factors, the most common of which is basic lung disease or heart disease. Aortopulmonary collateral arteries (APCAs) are blood vessels that originate from the aorta or its branches and provide blood flow to the pulmonary tissues. We herein report a rare case of APCAs without abnormal structures in the heart. The patient was a previously healthy boy wi...

BMC Gastroenterology; Zhu A, Yin G et. al.

Sep 16th, 2021 - We performed a meta-analysis to investigate the efficacy of complete omentectomy (CO) in patients undergoing radical gastrectomy for gastric cancer. We conducted a literature search in PubMed, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library databases for clinical research that compared CO with non-complete omentectomy (NCO). These articles were published prior to April 2021. Overall survival (OS) rate...

Sep 16th, 2021 - Neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia is a very common entity witnessed in most of the newborns. Rarely are there events where the bilirubin levels reach extreme values mandating invasive therapy. Unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia when solely present is easy to manage and diagnose the common aetiological factors associated with it. The issue arises when we come across a mixed picture of conjugated with u...

BMJ Case Reports; Kallimath A, Garegrat R et. al.

Sep 16th, 2021 - Most reports of COVID-19 in neonates suggest that they are infected postnatally and present with gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms. We describe a neonate who had community-acquired COVID-19, and presented with late-onset sepsis and developed dyselectrolytemia. The 26-day-old male baby had fever, feed refusal and shock. Rapid antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 by nasopharyngeal swab was positive...

BMJ Case Reports; Nguyen PC, Dunstan M et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is commonly associated with osmotic stress and rapid correction of hyponatraemia. It has rarely been reported in conjunction with malignancies. We report a case where CPM was not only associated with a new diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma but was also a key presenting feature.

https://doi.org/10.1002/ijgo.13857
International Journal of Gynaecology and Obstetrics: the ... Valencia CM, Mol BW et. al.

Sep 15th, 2021 - Iatrogenic preterm birth is a planned delivery that occurs before 37 weeks of gestation due to maternal and/or fetal causes. However, in some cases, such deliveries also occur with no apparent medical indication. The increasing numbers of iatrogenic preterm deliveries worldwide have led researchers to identify modifiable causes that allow the formulation of preventive strategies that could impa...

https://doi.org/10.1136/bcr-2021-244402
BMJ Case Reports; Derakhshesh MI, Joye E et. al.

Sep 14th, 2021 - Flash pulmonary oedema can occur as a result of multiple triggers that may act independently or in concert. One such precipitating factor is bilateral renal artery stenosis which can be treated either with revascularisation or with medical therapy. Unilateral renal artery stenosis, however, is a rare cause of flash pulmonary oedema, especially when the contralateral kidney is still functional. ...
