We report an unprecedented series of two-dimensional (2D) spin-crossover (SCO) heterobimetallic coordination polymers generically formulated as {FeII [(HgII (SCN)3 )2 ](L)x }·Solv, where x = 2 for L = tvp (trans-(4,4'-vinylenedipyridine)) (1tvp), bpmh ((1E,2E)-1,2-bis(pyridin-4-ylmethylene)hydrazine) (1bpmh·nCH3 OH; n = 0, 1), bpeh ((1E,2E)-1,2-bis(1-(pyridin-4-yl)ethylidene)hydrazine) (1bpeh·nH2 O; n = 0, 1) and x = 2.33 for L = bpbz (1,4-bis(pyridin-4-yl)benzene) (1bpbz·nH2 O; n = 0, 2/3). The results confirm that self-assembly of FeII , [HgII (SCN)4 ]2- , and ditopic rodlike bridging ligands L containing 4-pyridyl moieties favors the formation of linear [Fe(μ-L)]n 2n+ chains and in situ generated binuclear units {[HgII (SCN)3 ]2 (μ-L)}2- ...

Proteinuria is a major determinant of adverse renal outcome, and its reduction slows renal progression in glomerular diseases. However, the optimal target of proteinuria in glomerular diseases is unclear, and discrepancies in the definition of proteinuria produce ambiguous findings. Here we investigated the optimal target of proteinuria by using different definitions of proteinuria. We analyzed 574 IgA nephropathy (IgAN), 175 membranous nephropathy (MGN), and 177 focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) cases from 3 Korean kidney centers...

A patient presented for an elective transcatheter aortic valve replacement with temporary transvenous pacing (TVP) wires placement per protocol. On postoperative day 1, the patient remained stable, so the wires were subsequently removed, after which the patient acutely decompensated, with transthoracic echocardiography revealing pericardial effusion. Emergent pericardiocentesis was performed, and a pericardial drain was placed. Three days later, the drain was removed; again, the patient acutely decompensated, requiring another emergent pericardiocentesis...

AIM: Water retention, hepatic ascites, and peripheral edema are significant problems in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). Although furosemide and spironolactone are commonly used as treatment, they are often insufficient to treat hyponatremia and renal insufficiency in patients with LC. Tolvaptan (TVP) could provide an effective treatment alternative. However, predictive factors of a therapeutic response to TVP are unclear. Our aim was to examine clinical predictors of the response to TVP in patients with LC and water retention...

BACKGROUND: A subset of high-risk procedures present significant safety threats due to their (1) infrequent occurrence, (2) execution under time constraints and (3) immediate necessity for patient survival. A Just-in-Time (JIT) intervention could provide real-time bedside guidance to improve high-risk procedural performance and address procedural deficits associated with skill decay. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of a novel JIT intervention on transvenous pacemaker (TVP) placement during a simulated patient event...

BACKGROUND: Neonates with severe forms of Ebstein anomaly present a surgical challenge, and the Starnes operation as single ventricle palliation is highly advocated. Cone reconstruction for tricuspid valvuloplasty (TVP) has become a widely accepted technique, although very few cases of TVP have been reported in neonates. This report describes a surgical strategy for neonatal Ebstein anomaly, with an aim toward biventricular repair. METHODS: Since 2007, 7 neonates or young infants with severe Ebstein anomalies have received TVP at the National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan...
