Edward Samuel Roberto, Thein Tun Aung, Atif Hassan, Abdul Wase
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) includes any electromagnetic field signal that can be detected by device circuitry, with potentially serious consequences: incorrect sensing, pacing, device mode switching, and defibrillation. This is a unique case of extracardiac EMI by alternating current leakage from a submerged motor used to recycle chlorinated water, resulting in false rhythm detection and inappropriate ICD discharge. A 31-year-old female with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and Medtronic dual-chamber ICD placement presented after several inappropriate ICD shocks at the public swimming pool...

A diagnosis of Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE) is difficult. Transient hypotension has been reported as a rare complication of WE. We herein report a case of prolonged hypotension and dysuautonomia associated with WE in a 69-year-old man with underlying alcohol abuse. Without apparent etiology of shock, this patient remained hypotensive for 9 days, requiring a vasopressor, despite daily administration of thiamine 600 mg. Fluctuation of blood pressure caused by postural change and bradycardia in the presence of shock indicated that this patient had dysautonomia...

Autoimmune and dysimmune inflammatory mechanisms on a genetically susceptible background are implicated in the etiology of Behçet's Disease (BD). Heat-shock protein-65 (HSP-65) derived from Streptococcus sanguinis was proposed as a triggering factor based on its homology with human HSP-60. However, none of the autoantigens identified so far in sera from BD share common epitopes with bacterial HSP-65 or has a high prevalence. Here, we report that sera from BD patients are immunoreactive against filamentous neuronal processes in the mouse brain, retina and scrotal skin in great majority of patients...

Septic shock sometimes starts with unspecific symptoms that hamper the clinical diagnosis and, therefore an appropriate treatment. When the septic shock follows a fulminating course with a fatal outcome, the etiological diagnosis has to be conducted post-mortem. Sudden unexpected deaths in children and young adults are frequently the object of medico-legal autopsies. Some sudden unexpected deaths have an infectious origin, which requires further analyses, including microbiology, to establish the cause of death...

BACKGROUND: Acute severe mitral regurgitation (MR) is a serious medical condition. Whilst clear guidelines exist regarding the management of chronic MR, acute severe MR is usually treated on an individual basis. Currently, few data exist regarding acute MR in the era of primary coronary interventions (PCI). The present study included patients admitted to the Department of Cardiology during recent years with acute severe MR of different etiologies, and an analysis of these data in the light of previous investigations...

REVIEW
David N Gilbert
The combination of molecular pathogen diagnostics and the biomarker procalcitonin (PCT) are changing the use of antimicrobials in patients admitted to critical care units with severe community-acquired pneumonia, possible septic shock, or other clinical syndromes. An elevated serum PCT level is good supportive evidence of a bacterial pneumonia, whereas a low serum PCT level virtually eliminates an etiologic role for bacteria even if the culture for a potential bacterial pathogen is positive. Serum PCT levels can be increased in any shocklike state; a low PCT level eliminates invasive bacterial infection as an etiology in more than 90% of patients...

Peyronie's disease (PD) is a chronic inflammation of tunica albuginea of the corpora cavernosa that causes an inelastic plaque resulting in penis deformation. Although its etiology is not completely known, there is general consensus that PD is genetically transmitted and secondary to penile trauma. In recent years, numerous studies demonstrated the role played by oxidative stress in PD pathogenesis, and other studies have described successful use of antioxidants in PD treatment. Oxidative stress is an integral part of this disease, influencing its progression...

Phosphorylated proteins provide insight into tumor etiology and are used as diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic markers of complex diseases. However, pre-analytic variations, such as freezing delay after biopsy acquisition, often occur in real hospital settings and potentially lead to inaccurate results. The objective of this work is to develop statistical methodology to assess the stability of phosphorylated proteins under short-time cold ischemia. We consider a hierarchical model to determine if phosphorylation abundance of a protein at a particular phosphorylation site remains constant or not during cold ischemia...

Introduction  Restrictive cardiomyopathy in fetuses and neonates is extremely rare and has a poor outcome. Its etiology in neonates is elusive: metabolic diseases (e.g., Gaucher, Hurler syndrome), neuromuscular disorders (e.g., muscular dystrophies, myofibrillar myopathies), or rare presentation of genetic syndromes (e.g., Coffin-Lowry syndrome) account for a minority of the cases, the majority remaining idiopathic. Case Study  We report the case of a 17-day-old male infant presenting cardiogenic shock following a restrictive dysfunction of the left ventricle...
