BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although risk factors for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and atherothrombotic cerebral infarction (ACI) are common, it is unknown if the risk factors for these two conditions are similar. The purpose of our study was to elucidate differences in carotid artery atherosclerotic features between ACS and ACI. METHODS: We measured carotid artery ultrasound-based atherosclerotic parameters in 61 ACS and 33 ACI patients. In the ACS patients, 31 had single-vessel coronary artery disease (SVD) and 30 had multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD)...

BACKGROUND: Pathologic subjective halitosis is known as a halitosis complaint without objective confirmation of halitosis by others or by halitometer measurements; it has been reported to be associated with social anxiety disorder. Olfactory reference syndrome is a preoccupation with the false belief that one emits a foul and offensive body odor. Generally, patients with olfactory reference syndrome are concerned with multiple body parts. However, the mouth is known to be the most common source of body odor for those with olfactory reference syndrome, which could imply that the two conditions share similar features...

We report a case of chimpanzee trisomy 22 in a captive-born female. Because chromosome 22 in great apes is homologous to human chromosome 21, the present case is analogous to human trisomy 21, also called Down syndrome. The chimpanzee in the present case experienced retarded growth; infantile cataract and vision problems, including nystagmus, strabismus, and keratoconus; congenital atrial septal defect; and hypodontia. All of these symptoms are common in human Down syndrome. This case was the second reported case of trisomy 22 in the chimpanzee...

BACKGROUND: It remains unclear whether there are subgroups of acute heart failure syndromes (AHFS) patients in whom New York Heart Association (NYHA) class IV symptoms at admission is related to a higher risk of mortality because of the heterogeneity of this patient population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of NYHA class IV symptoms at baseline with in-hospital mortality in subgroups of patients with AHFS. METHODS AND RESULTS: Of the 4842 patients enrolled in the Acute Decompensated Heart Failure Syndromes (ATTEND) registry, 4786 patients were included in this analysis...

BACKGROUND: First-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) have reduced short-term stent failure as compared to bare-metal stents due to the inhibition of neointima hyperplasia, but instead increased the risk of very-late stent failure. Although better outcomes have been reported for second-generation DES than for first-generation DES, the difference in the angioscopic findings at 1-year follow-up has not been adequately elucidated among second-generation DES. METHODS: Consecutive 161 patients who received angioscopic examination at 1 year after implantation of second-generation DES, i...

A woman was diagnosed with non-24-hour sleep-wake syndrome and depressive symptoms. Her depressive symptoms did not respond to standard doses of several antidepressants or mood stabilizers. Furthermore, her sleep-wake cycle remained non-entrained despite treatment with a melatonin-related drug, vitamin B12, and phototherapy. Ultimately, her sleep-wake rhythm was restored to a 24-hour pattern with a low dose of valproic acid, and her depressive symptoms tended to improve as a result of synchronization without antidepressants...

Chih-Ting Su, Yi-Chun Lin
Insulin antibodies (IA) associated with exogenous insulin administration seldom caused hypoglycemia and had different characteristics from insulin autoantibodies (IAA) found in insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS), which was first described by Dr Hirata in 1970. The characteristic of IAS is the presence of insulin-binding autoantibodies and related fasting or late postprandial hypoglycemia. Here, we report a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus under insulin glargine and insulin aspart treatment who developed recurrent spontaneous post-absorptive hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia with the cause probably being insulin antibodies induced by exogenous injected insulin...

Acetylsalicylic acid and clopidogrel combined therapy has been reported to be beneficial in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Antiplatelet drug resistance, especially to clopidogrel, is a multifactorial phenomenon that affects a large number of ACS patients. The genetic contribution to this drug response is not fully elucidated. We investigated the relationship of ABC-type efflux subfamily C member 3 (ABCC3) polymorphisms and mRNA expression with plasma concentrations of clopidogrel, salicylic acid (SA), and a carboxylic acid metabolite (CAM)...

A 23-year-old asymptomatic woman was referred to our hospital for further examination of a systolic ejection murmur with fixed splitting of the second heart sound auscultated at the third left sternal border. Initial echocardiography could not detect the cause. Subsequently performed low-dose computed tomography, however, ruled out the possibility of any congenital heart diseases, but revealed a markedly shortened anteroposterior diameter of the chest, which led us to a diagnosis of straight back syndrome. A vertically oriented "pancake" appearance of the heart, straight vertebral column, and compression of the right ventricular outflow tract were clearly demonstrated on the reconstructed images...

BACKGROUND: Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an immune-mediated neuropathy that causes acute flaccid paralysis. Immunoglobulin and plasma exchange are established treatments for GBS; however, a substantial number of patients, particularly those with severe disease, have poor recovery and residual deficits. Recent studies suggest that complement activation plays a pivotal role in GBS-associated axonal degeneration, and eculizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that specifically binds to complement component 5 and potently inhibits complement activation...

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a critical illness associated with toxin from Staphylococcus aureus. Despite recent advances in critical care, mortality remains high and additional effective therapy is required. We report an adolescent case of TSS successfully treated with direct hemoperfusion using polymyxin-B immobilized fiber (PMX-DHP). The patient with spina bifida also had ischial pressure ulcer, and developed TSS associated with methicillin-resistant S. aureus. Despite conventional treatment, the patient developed refractory shock, which was immediately improved with PMX-DHP...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic thyroidectomy is a well-established surgical technique that is mainly performed for benign thyroid disease. We considered that endoscopic surgery could also be widely indicated for the treatment of thyroid cancer. We herein describe our new bidirectional approach of video-assisted neck surgery (BAVANS) for complete central node dissection in endoscopic thyroid cancer surgery. METHODS: BAVANS involves two different directional pathways to the cervical lesion...

We herein report an elderly patient with a history of restless legs syndrome (RLS) who developed unpleasant sensations in the lower abdomen and perineum. The patient' s symptoms occurred during the evening and at rest and forced the patient to void, resulting in some symptom relief. Urological examinations and spinal magnetic resonance imaging findings were unremarkable. The adjunctive use of rotigotine resolved her symptoms. The symptoms were considered to be "restless bladder". Further studies are required to elucidate whether restless bladder is an identical condition to the clinical entities of other RLS variants or whether it represents an unusual feature of RLS...
