Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is traditionally associated with polycythemia which results from chronic hypoxemia. Nevertheless, recent studies have shown that anemia may be more frequent than expected in patients with COPD. In this retrospective study, we investigated the prevalence of hemoglobin disorders in a cohort of 100 patients with stable, moderate to severe COPD (II to IV GOLD classification). We identified 31 % patients with anemia while only 15 % had polycythemia. Anemia was more frequent in male patients...

BACKGROUND: The goal of carotid artery stenting (CAS) is to decrease the stroke risk in patients with carotid stenosis. This procedure carries an immediate risk of stroke and death and many patients do not benefit from it, especially asymptomatic patients. Patient selection for carotid procedure who benefit from procedure and who is the procedure hazardous for is important. Remote ischemic stroke is known risk factor for stroke reccurence during surgery. The aim of our study was to determine the periprocedural complication risk (within 30 days after CAS) associated with carotid stenting (stroke, death) between patients with remote pre- procedural ischemic stroke and without it; to analyse periprocedural risk in other specific patient subgroups treated with CAS and to determine the impact of observed variables on all- cause mortality during long-term follow-up...

BACKGROUND: We detected a novel imaging sign, which consists of a specific imaging pattern of diffuse susceptibility effect, delineating the cortical-subcortical junction on high-resolution susceptibility-weighted images (SWIs). We describe magnetic resonance imaging findings in 10 patients with "susceptibility etching" and possible association with their abnormal coagulation profile. MATERIALS/METHODS: A retrospective case series study with a search for cases that demonstrated susceptibility effect at the cortical-subcortical junction on SWI sequences was performed...

Mortality is one of the most important outcomes in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Different predictors have been associated with mortality, including the patient's level of physical activity (PA). The objective of this work was to establish the relationship between changes in PA during a moderate-to-severe COPD exacerbation (eCOPD) and 1-year mortality after the index event. This was a prospective observational cohort study with recruitment of 2,484 patients with an eCOPD attending the emergency department (ED) of 16 participating hospitals...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose is to discuss current data on the utilization and outcomes of active surveillance for T1a renal masses. Specifically, to address which patients are optimal for active surveillance and how their outcomes differ from those undergoing immediate treatment. RECENT FINDINGS: Although nephron sparing surgery is the standard of care for small renal masses (SRMs), active surveillance is becoming a more popular intervention given the results of prospective studies revealing active surveillance to be safe and have excellent cancer-specific survival with intermediate follow-up...

The pathophysiological mechanisms underlying overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) can include dysfunction of sensory pathways of the peripheral and central nervous systems, resulting in bladder hypersensitivity. Central sensitization describes an induced state of spinal hypersensitivity that is associated with a variety of chronic pain disorders that share many attributes with OAB, albeit without the presence of pain. As such, the concept of central sensitization might be relevant to understanding the mechanisms and clinical manifestations of OAB syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is highly effective in treating recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (RCDI). However, the ideal timing for offering FMT remains to be determined. Furthermore, the direct medical costs averted with timely FMT have not been examined. METHODS: A retrospective review of the Edmonton FMT program database included patients who received FMT for RCDI (October 2012 to September 2014). They were divided into 2 groups: those who received FMT after 2 recurrences (the timely FMT group) and those who received FMT after at least 3 recurrences (the delayed FMT group)...

Tinnitus, a phantom sensation experienced by people around the world, currently is endured without a known cure. Some find the condition tolerable, while others are tortured on a daily basis from the incessant phantom noises. For those who seek treatment, oftentimes, they have a comorbid condition (e.g., depression, anxiety, insomnia), which is treated pharmaceutically. These products aim to reduce the comorbities associated with tinnitus thereby minimizing the overall burden present. Because of the phantom nature of tinnitus, it is often compared to neurologic pain...

Lung cancer is among the most common cancers worldwide and is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. For patients with early stage (American Joint Committee on Cancer T1-2, N0) non-small-cell lung cancer, the current standard of care is lobectomy with systematic lymph node evaluation. Unfortunately, patients with lung cancer often have medical comorbities, which may preclude the option of surgical resection. In such cases, a number of minimally invasive to noninvasive treatment options have gained popularity in the treatment of these high-risk patients...

BACKGROUND: Improving estimation of long-term survival of patients with end-stage liver disease after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) would optimize decisions on eligibility for transplant. We aimed to externally validate previously derived Charlson Comorbity Index for OLT (CCI-OLT); subsequently, we developed a new model to predict 5-year mortality after transplant. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This single center retrospective cohort study included 524 consecutive adult cirrhotic patients who underwent OLT in 2002-2012...

Thumb carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis is the most common site of non-rheumatic degenerative lesion in the hand, and there are special features in rheumatic patients. None of various surgical treatment options can be declared as "gold standard" recently. The surgical treatment depends on patient's age, patient's claims in work and leisure, local bone stock, possible allergies, local comorbities, and local deformities.

Diabetes is a chronic and progressive syndrome commonly associated with several neuropsychiatric comorbities, of which depression is the most studied. The prevalence of depression is about two or three times higher in diabetic patients compared to the general population. It is believed that the diabetes - depression relation may be bidirectional, i.e., the depression can lead to diabetes and conversely diabetes could facilitate the emergence of depression. Depression is one of the most neglected symptoms in diabetic patients and is directly linked with lowering of quality of life...

The medical record is a repository of clinical data, which can greatly enhance the quality of health and healthcare analysis. Administrative data are collected for the purpose of billing and reimbursement, and are valued by health researchers because the data are routinely audited to maintain accurate financial records. However, the quantity of incorporated clinical data can be variable. In this paper we reconstruct the medical record from health service invoices to estimate the cost of treating keratinocytic cancer (KC)...
