Kidney transplant patients (KTPs), and particularly those with advanced chronic kidney rejection, may be affected by opportunistic infections, metabolic alterations and vascular and oncologic diseases that promote clinical conditions that require a variety of treatments, the combinations of which may predispose them to hyponatremia. Salt and water imbalance can induce abnormalities in volemia and/or serum sodium depending on the nature of this alteration (increase or decrease), its absolute magnitude (mild or severe) and its relative magnitude (body sodium:water ratio)...

OBJECTIVES: Debridement, antibiotics and implant retention (DAIR) is the recommended treatment for all acute prosthetic joint infections (PJI), but its efficacy in patients with late acute (LA) PJI is not well described. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with LA PJI between 2005 and 2015 were retrospectively evaluated. LA PJI was defined as the development of acute symptoms (≤ 3 weeks) occurring ≥ 3 months after arthroplasty. Failure was defined as: i) the need for implant removal, ii) infection related death, iii) the need for suppressive antibiotic therapy and/or iv) relapse or reinfection during follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Effective implementation strategies to improve speech and language therapists' (SLTs) aphasia management practices are needed. Australian SLTs working in the acute setting have reported inconsistent implementation of post-stroke aphasia guideline recommendations. Therefore, implementation efforts to address these gaps are necessary. However, little is known about the effectiveness of behaviour-change strategies in SLTs providing acute aphasia management. AIMS: This study designed and tested the feasibility, acceptability and potential effectiveness of a tailored implementation strategy to improve acute SLTs' uptake of evidence in two areas of practice: aphasia-friendly information provision; and collaborative goal setting...

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is one of the most spreading diseases all over the world. The treatment strategies are limited to surgical or endovascular procedures for final stage chronic PAD or acute limb ischemia, and no pharmacological approaches have been achieved to prevent the worsening of chronic PAD or to regenerate the tissues of acute limb ischemia. Therefore, the improvement of therapeutic strategy is strongly demanded in clinics. Here, we adopted an acute hindlimb ischemia model in rats, which provides concomitant inflammatory response, to evaluate the application of drug delivery system against PAD...

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute immune-mediated demyelinating disease. Early recognition of this disease is crucial as it can progress to life-threatening conditions such as respiratory failure or autonomic dysfunction. Typical clinical manifestations of GBS include progressive weakness of the limbs, bulbar, facial muscles and ophthalmoplegia. Sensory level and bladder dysfunction are more suggestive of acute myelopathy. We report a case of GBS presenting with acute urinary retention and T6 sensory level, which was successfully treated with plasma exchange...

The conventional emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulation contains a large amount of aromatic solvents, which causes adverse effects to both the environment and human health due to the toxicity of the solvents. Here, we developed a 2.5% lambda-cyhalothrin EC formulation with ethylene glycol diacetate (EGDA) as the solvent, and the developed formulation serves as an environmental-friendly alternative to overcome the adverse effects of aromatic solvents. The physicochemical characterizations, wettability properties, phytotoxicity and bioassays of the EGDA-EC formulation were systematically investigated and compared with that of the EC formulation with xylene as the solvent...

Methoxyflurane is a volatile, fluorinated anesthetic agent with analgesic properties. Although no longer used as an anesthetic due to concerns regarding renal toxicity in high doses, it has enjoyed a resurgence as an inhaled analgesic in prehospital care and in the emergency department. The agent is nonflammable and leads to rapid, titratable analgesia without intravenous access. The Penthrox inhaler device is light, robust, and straightforward to administer. Consequently, it has been proposed as an ideal analgesic for the remote high altitude setting...

Acute retention of urine in pregnancy is an emergency, since it can lead to loss of pregnancy besides other dire complications. Gartner's abscess is an extremely rare cause for this condition. We present a case of a 23-year-old primigravida woman who presented to us at 24 weeks of pregnancy with acute retention of urine. After clinical and radiological evaluation, a large Gartner's abscess was found to be the cause. Per vaginal drainage of the abscess was not attempted because insertion of transvaginal probe was extremely painful for the patient, and the abscess was located high up in the anterior fornix...

INTRODUCTION: Some authors consider HoLEP a new gold standard for the surgical management of prostatic hyperplasia. The increasing utilization of holmium enucleation has led to the development of various modifications of this treatment modality, including the so-called enucleation as a single piece (HoLEP en bloc), which reduces the operative time and, according to some authors, facilitates acquiring new surgical technique by surgical trainees. AIM: To compare the effectiveness and safety of the traditional HoLEP and HoLEP en bloc...
