Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is characterized by microscopic angiopathic haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and organ injury. Supportive therapies include the use of blood products. Recently the terminal complement inhibitor eculizumab has been approved in atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (aHUS) in some countries. We report the case of a 23-year-old female Jehovah's Witness presenting with vaginal haemorrhage from thrombocytopaenia, severe anaemia (nadir Hb 28 g/L) and anuric acute kidney injury with TMA secondary to aHUS...

BACKGROUND: The attributional theory of paranoia suggests that paranoid beliefs may protect individuals from low self-esteem and distress (Bentall et al. 2001). The current study tested this theory by investigating a hypothesis that paranoid beliefs in combination with low perceived deservedness of persecution (poor-me beliefs) confer protection against the distress caused by social but not activity related stress. METHODS: Paranoid symptoms, perceived deservedness of persecution, self-esteem, mood, and stress levels of individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia spectrum disorders (N = 91) and healthy controls (N = 52) were assessed in the context of daily life using the experience sampling method...

Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a rare case of granulomatous arteritis which mainly involves the aorta and its large branches. Although arterial hypertension is the most common feature of the disease in both adults and children, patients with TA may present with numerous clinical manifestations. Our patient was a 45-year-old woman, known to have hypertension from 3 years earlier following assessments made for severe headache. One year after the diagnosis of hypertension, she developed a left-sided lower motor neuron facial palsy, which was treated with oral corticosteroids (Prednisolone)...

The purpose of this study is to assess the result of total arch replacement(TAR) using manufactured frozen elephant trunk(FET) for chronic aortic dissection after initial repair including the effect of aortic remodeling by the FET. Between 2003 and 2015, we performed 11 TAR using manufactured FET. Initial repairs before were 9 ascending aortic replacements and 2 Bentall operations. The entry of residual dissection was located at arch in 7 and at distal anastomosis site in 4. There was no hospital death. The operative complication included 2 surgical site infection, 1 interstitial pneumonia and 1 paraplegia with almost full recovery...

OBJECTIVES: In this study, a propensity-matching analysis was used to compare biological versus mechanical composite valve graft implantation for early mortality and morbidities and for late complications including the need for aortic reintervention. METHODS: Between 1978 and 2011, 1112 consecutive patients underwent a complete aortic root replacement using either a biological Bentall (BB, n  = 356) or a mechanical Bentall (MB, n  = 756) valve conduit. Preoperative data were stratified according to the type of valve graft, and treatment bias was addressed by propensity score analysis...

Although aortic root replacement using a composite graft including the Bentall operation is the treatment of choice for a diseased aortic valve and root dilatation, composite graft endocarditis can occur as a life-threatening complication with a high mortality rate. When aortic pseudoaneurysm occurs due to composite graft endocarditis, it usually indicates that saccular bulging of the surrounding tissue of the composite graft is present. Furthermore, another sign and a clue of the diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm is the collapse of the composite graft due to the outer compression pressure of the leaking blood flow...

The strategy of root reconstruction for Stanford type A aortic dissection (AAD) includes resection of the intimal tear site, correction of concomitant aortic valve dysfunction and amendment of coronary lesion. Supracommissural tube graft replacement is a well-adopted and convenient procedure for most patients, although its application is limited when distinct sinus expansion and severe intimal damage is present. Composite valve conduit replacement (Bentall procedure) is suitable for patients with overt sinus damage...

BACKGROUND: There is widespread interest in whether psychosis exists on a continuum with healthy functioning. Previous research has implied that paranoia, a common symptom of psychosis, exists on a continuum but this has not been investigated using samples including both patients and non-patients and up-to-date taxometric methods. AIM: To assess the latent structure of paranoia in a diverse sample using taxometric methods. METHOD: We obtained data from 2836 participants, including the general population as well as at-risk mental state and psychotic patients using the P-scale of the Paranoia and Deservedness Scale...
