Though the American society of hematology Guidelines and British guidelines do not recommend screening of thyroid diseases in cases of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), more than 160 cases of hyperthyroidism associated with ITP have been reported. Numerous case reports would suggest that patients with ITP and concurrent hyperthyroidism would respond to control of thyroid disease rather than the standard ITP treatment. Although this issue is still debatable, we report a case of a young female with a previous diagnosis of hyperthyroidism which was not well controlled, had presented with severe thrombocytopenia...

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a rare bony disorder in which normal bone is replaced by abnormal fibro-osseous tissue. It often involves the long bones, craniofacial bones, ribs, and pelvis. Approximately 30% of monostotic FD (MFD) lesions are found in the cranial or facial bones. In general, FD is found in teenagers, and it usually becomes static after adulthood. FD involves the maxilla almost two times more often than the mandible. It frequently appears in the posterior region of the jaw bone and is usually unilateral...

Objective: Waldeyer's lymphatic ring consists of group of tonsils located over the posterior oropharyngeal wall. The palatine tonsils are largest tonsil. The present study was aimed to evaluate the significance of lymphoid hyperplasia, lymphocyte infiltration with and without defect in the surface epithelium in chronic tonsillitis (CT) and chronic adenotonsillar hypertrophy (CAH) in resected tonsillectomy and adenotonsillectomy specimens. Materials and Methods: A total of 85 patients were included in the study...

Objective: Previous studies have reported that a vegetarian diet may lower blood pressure (BP), but the effect of diet on BP in asymptomatic participants with proteinuria is unknown. We examined the association of diet and BP in individuals with or without proteinuria. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study analyzed data from participants who were more than 40 years old and received physical checkups at Taipei Tzu Chi Hospital from September 5, 2005, to December 31, 2016...

Objectives: Adrenocortical scintigraphy for patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) without discontinuation or modification of antihypertensive medications is of concern because of drug interference with the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. We report the surgical outcomes of patients with PA lateralized with adrenocortical scintigraphy without drug discontinuation or modification. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 34 patients with PA with computed tomography (CT)-documented adrenal tumors who had undergoing subsequent I-131-6 ╬▓-iodomethyl-norcholesterol (NP-59) single photon emission CT (SPECT)/CT followed by unilateral adrenalectomy according to the results of NP-59 uptake between May 2005 and December 2014...

Objective: In addition to high-quality chest compression, parameters of resuscitation efficiency such as early chest compression, early defibrillation, and decreased hands-off time are also vital in the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) protocol. However, because of limited time and equipment in ACLS courses, efficiency of performance is difficult to evaluate. Materials and Methods: A free, easy-to-use iOS and Android app (CodeTracer® ) was developed for real-time recording of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) performance...

Objective: Arthropod-borne viral diseases are a major burden on the health-care system worldwide. Only a few studies have reported on coinfection of dengue fever (DF) with the chikungunya virus in North India. We investigated the seroprevalence and significance of the clinicobiochemical profile of dengue and chikungunya coinfection. Besides this, the authors try to emphasize rationalize platelets transfusion. Material and Methods: The present study was conducted at the Heritage Institute of Medical Science, Varanasi, India, from July to December 2016...

Objective: Increased circulating leptin, a marker of leptin resistance, is common in patients with obesity and is also an independent factor in prediction of cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between fasting serum leptin levels and the aortic augmentation index (AIx) in kidney transplant recipients. Materials and Methods: Fasting blood samples were obtained from 70 kidney transplant recipients. The aortic AIx was measured using a validated tonometry system (SphygmoCor)...

REVIEW
Li-Liang Chuang, Ming-Chen Hsieh
The medical education environment is rapidly changing. Competency-based medical education (CBME) is a great advance, but operationalizing competencies for teaching and assessment is problematic. Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) can revitalize CBME by connecting competencies to practice, creating flexibility in programs. CBME requires and deepens the nature of workplace-based assessments. It is important to use EPAs to verify residents' ability to care for critically ill patients unsupervised in simulation education...

REVIEW
Yu-Chih Shen
Depression is the predominant pole of disability in bipolar disorder and compared with mania/hypomania, has less systematic research guiding the development of treatment especially in its acute phase (acute bipolar depression). The deficiency in the management of the acute bipolar depression largely reflects the natural divergence of opinion resulting from significant knowledge gaps. At present, there are only 3 approved drug treatments for acute bipolar depression: olanzapine/fluoxetine combination, quetiapine (immediate or extended release), and lurasidone (monotherapy or adjunctive to lithium or valproate)...

Chien-Yu Lin, Jui-Hsing Wang, Kai-Hsiang Lin, Yu-Ling Ho, Cheng-Mao Ho
Staphylococcus aureus is a versatile pathogen which can cause various mild to life-threatening infectious diseases. The evolution of S. aureus resistance is notorious, from penicillin and oxacillin to vancomycin. Vancomycin, introduced in 1956, was once considered a most reliable antibiotic for methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA); unfortunately, the first strain of S. aureus with decreased susceptibility to vancomycin emerged in 1996. Vancomycin has been approved in Taiwan since 1983, and the prevalence rates of heteroresistant vancomycin-intermediate S...

#15
REVIEW
Yu-Hsi Hsieh, Felix W Leung
The correlation between a low adenoma detection rate (ADR) and interval cancers (ICs) has made ADR one of the most important quality indicators for colonoscopy. Data from nation-wide colorectal cancer (CRC) screening programs showed that there is room for improvement in ADR in order to reduce ICs in Taiwan. Measures with and without adjunct tools have been shown to have the potential to increase ADR, with the latter being more convenient to apply without additional cost. Optimal withdrawal techniques coupled with sufficient withdrawal time, training endoscopists with emphasis on recognition of subtle characteristics of flat lesions, dynamic position changes during the withdrawal phase, removing small polyps found during insertion, and retroflexion in the right colon have all been associated with increased ADR...

A glomangiopericytoma, or sinonasal type hemangiopericytoma, is a rare lesion which accounts for <0.5% of all sinonasal tumors. The mainstay treatment is wide excision. Instead of traditional open surgical approaches, such as midfacial degloving or lateral rhinotomy, we offer a case of 21-year-old male with diagnosis of glomangiopericytoma with skull base and intraorbital invasion and received navigation-assisted endoscopic excision of a glomangiopericytoma.

Bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a sinus tract between the bronchus and the pleural space that may result from a necrotizing pneumonia/empyema (anaerobic, pyogenic, tuberculous, or fungal), lung neoplasms, and blunt and penetrating lung injuries or may occur as a complication of procedures such as lung biopsy, chest tube drainage, thoracocentesis, or radiation therapy. The diagnosis and management of BPF remain a major therapeutic challenge for clinicians, and the lesion is associated with significant morbidity and mortality...

Chien-Hui Lee, Sheng-Tzung Tsai, Tsung-Lang Chiu
Objectives: Direct microsurgical clipping for complex middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms may require a long ischemic time. Sacrifice of the parent artery with trapping or endovascular coiling also may lead to ischemic stroke. We described our institutional experience with the treatment of complex MCA aneurysms using extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) (superficial temporal artery [STA]-MCA) bypass. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed patients who had treatment of IC aneurysms with the assistance of STA-MCA bypass from July 2002 to December 2016...
