We have retrospectively examined a wide range of clinical characteristics, sonographic features, microbiology, and antibiotic regimens in patients with breast abscesses to seek predictive features related to outcome. Because consensus for optimal treatment of breast abscesses has moved toward minimally invasive management using single or repeated needle aspiration (ASP) coupled with adjuvant antibiotics, we assessed whether any factors correlate with the need for repeat procedures by analyzing the number of ASPs and/or surgical incision and drainage (I&D) per abscess...

BACKGROUND: Chronic diseases management outside expensive hospital settings has become a major target for governments, funders and healthcare service providers. It is well known that chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) do not occur in isolation, and has a shared aetiology common to many other diseases and disorders. Diabetes Australia reports that it is associated with a myriad of complications, which affect the feet, eyes, kidneys, and cardiovascular health. For instance, nerve damage in the lower limbs affects around 13% of Australians with diabetes, diabetic retinopathy occurs in over 15% of Australians with diabetes, and diabetes is now the leading cause of end-stage kidney disease...

REVIEW
Michel Burnier
To review the most recent data on the development of endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs) for the treatment of hypertension and the management of diabetic nephropathy RECENT FINDINGS: Recent reviews and meta-analyses of experimental and clinical data obtained with ERAs confirmed that endothelin receptor blockade is associated with significant decreases in blood pressure in essential hypertension but also in resistant hypertension. In addition, in patients with diabetic nephropathy, ERAs induce significant 30-40% decreases in albuminuria when administered on top of blockers of the renin-angiotensin system...

REVIEW
Alexander S Kuczmarski, Andrew P Harris, Joseph A Gil, Arnold-Peter C Weiss
Diabetics have a much greater prevalence of trigger finger than nondiabetics and are more likely to have severe symptoms. Diabetic trigger finger may be more accurately described on a spectrum of diabetic hand pathology alongside carpal tunnel syndrome and cheiroarthropathy. Recent publications have called into question the current treatment algorithm for diabetic trigger finger. Although some evidence supports the use of corticosteroid injections, a recent cost analysis reported that immediate surgical release of the A1 pulley in the clinic is the most cost-effective management of diabetic trigger finger...
