RATIONALE: Mechanical ventilation of severe acute asthma is still considered a challenging issue, mainly because of the gas trapping phenomenon with the potential for life-threatening barotraumatic pulmonary complications. PATIENT CONCERNS: Herein, we describe 2 consecutive cases of near-fatal asthma for whom the recommended protective mechanical ventilation approach using low tidal volume of 6 mL/kg and small levels of PEEP was rapidly compromised by giant pneumomediastinum with extensive subcutaneousemphysema...

Jihad Mallat, Benoit Vallet
In critically ill patients, tissue hypoperfusion is an important cause leading to multi- organ dysfunction and death, and it cannot always be detected by measuring standard global hemodynamic and oxygen-derived parameters. Gastric intramucosal PCO2 as measured by gastric tonometry has been recognized to be of clinical value as a prognostic factor, in assessing the effects of particular therapeutic interventions, and as an end-point of resuscitation. However, this technique has several limitations that have hampered its implementation in clinical practice...

OBJECTIVE: Robotic management of a retrocaval metastasis can be challenging because of prior surgery leading to scarring and obscure surgical planes around vital structures. We present our robotic approach and technique to manage a large retrocaval, biopsy-proven, metastatic mass after previous laparoscopic right radical nephrectomy with concomitant adrenalectomy 10 years ago. METHODS: We present a 62-year-old man who previously underwent a laparoscopic right radical nephrectomy for pT1bNxMx chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in 2007...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: We present our robotic approach and technique to manage a large left renal tumor with inferior vena cava (IVC) Level III thrombus. The superior mesenteric artery crossing the left renal vein requires robotic docking from the left, for dissection of the left kidney followed by repositioning and re-docking the robot from the right side for dissection of the right renal vein, distal and proximal IVC, and the remaining left renal vein insertion into the IVC. METHODS: We present a 53-year-old man with a 10...

BACKGROUND: Langerhans cell histiocytosis is a rare systemic disease characterized by the abnormal overproduction of histiocytes that tend to infiltrate single or multiple organ systems leading to significant tissue damage. It mainly affects - by order of decreasing frequency - the bone, the skin, the lymph nodes, the liver, and lungs. Gastrointestinal tract involvement is extremely rare in adults. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the case of a 32-year-old Middle Eastern man with Langerhans cell histiocytosis involving his lungs and the colorectoanal part of his gastrointestinal tract, with complete resolution of gastrointestinal tract lesions following a non-standardized chemotherapy regimen...

The Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) contains more than two million digital samples from functional genomics experiments amassed over almost two decades. However, individual sample meta-data remains poorly described by unstructured free text attributes preventing its largescale reanalysis. We introduce the Search Tag Analyze Resource for GEO as a web application (http://STARGEO.org) to curate better annotations of sample phenotypes uniformly across different studies, and to use these sample annotations to define robust genomic signatures of disease pathology by meta-analysis...

BACKGROUND: Idiopathic pericarditis is presumed to result from viral infection. The incidence rates of some viral infections have typical seasonal patterns. The data in the literature on a possible seasonal pattern of acute pericarditis are very limited. The mechanism and possible seasonality of recurrent episodes are not well established . HYPOTHESIS: The incidence of acute idiopathic pericarditis has a seasonal pattern. METHODS: The computerized database of a tertiary, university-affiliated hospital was searched for all patients admitted with a first episode of acute idiopathic pericarditis between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2015...

Informed consent requirements for conducting research with human participants are set by institutional review boards (IRBs) following established guidelines. Despite this, researchers continue to face challenges in seeking and obtaining informed consent. This study discusses researchers' views of such problems in Lebanon and Qatar, which vary in research regulation. We conducted in-depth interviews with 52 academic researchers from various fields of research in both countries and analyzed them using thematic analysis...

We report the case of a 25-year old primipara whose pregnancy was complicated by idiopathic intracranial hypertension (ICHT) associated with visual impairment in the first quarter. She underwent lumboperitoneal shunt without obstetric consequences. This study aimed to determine the features of this rare pathological entity whose pathophysiological mechanism is poorly elucidated. It would be caused by poor absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the arachnoid granulations. Major risk factors are: obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome, thrombophilia and hyperfibrinolyse...

Fine tuning of signaling pathways is essential for cells to cope with sudden environmental variations. This delicate balance is maintained in particular by protein kinases that control the activity of target proteins by reversible phosphorylation. In addition to homologous eukaryotic enzymes, bacteria have evolved some specific Ser/Thr/Tyr protein kinases without any structural resemblance to their eukaryotic counterparts. Here, we show that a previously identified family of ATPases, broadly conserved among bacteria, is in fact a new family of protein kinases with a Ser/Thr/Tyr kinase activity...

BACKGROUND: Identifying patients with certain clinical criteria based on manual chart review of doctors' notes is a daunting task given the massive amounts of text notes in the electronic health records (EHR). This task can be automated using text classifiers based on Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques along with pattern recognition machine learning (ML) algorithms. The aim of this research is to evaluate the performance of traditional classifiers for identifying patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) in comparison with a newer Bayesian word vector method...

Galactocele is a rare cystic formation, a benign breast lesion, occurring when breast duct is blocked and engorged. It generally affects postpartum women, either breastfeeding or not. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature and they were not related to lactation, as in the case of postmenopausal women or of men; moreover, their relationship to the overproduction of prolactin, a growth factor stimulating mammary epithelial cells, is not very well defined at this time. We here report the unusual case of a 30-year old patient with no personal history of childbirth or abortion...
