Upper gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with end stage renal disease: causes, characteristics and factors associated with need for endoscopic therapeutic intervention

dysfunction and increased risk of vascular malformation. [ 2 ] Since GI diseases are common in ESRD patients, multiple studies have been conducted to study the endoscopic findings in this population. Most common reason for endoscopic evaluation has been UGIB. [ 2 , 4 ] Several scoring systems have also been developed to classify patients with UGIB according to their outcome. One such scoring system is the Glasgow Blatchford bleeding Score (GBS), a well-established tool to stratify patients in dire need of intervention from UGIB on the basis of their history, physical

Correlation between MELD and UNa/K ratio in predicting renal dysfunction in cirrhotic patients

Stage Liver Disease (MELD) is a validated chronic liver disease (CLD) severity scoring system that includes serum bilirubin, serum creatinine, and the international normalized ratio (INR). An increasing MELD score is associated with progression of hepatic dysfunction, severity and three-month mortality risk.[ 5 ] MELD is also used to prioritize patients on liver transplant waiting list. It is considered better than the Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) score, in part, because of the inclusion of creatinine, which reflects the prognostic impact of renal function.[ 6

Smell discrimination and identification scores in Thai adults with normosmia

blindfolded with a hygienic face mask to prevent visual detection of the substances. Participants were allowed to sniff each bottle only once to save time. Three bottles were then presented to each nostril in a fixed randomized order with a total of 16 trials. If participants answered correctly, bottles containing odorous or odorless substances in triplicate for each trial were used and one score was given. Smell discrimination scores of each nostril ranged from 0 to 16. Smell identification test The smell identification or odorant naming test (SIT) was conducted

Analysis of Scoring Sequences in Matches of the Portuguese Premier League

Introduction In soccer, it has been demonstrated that performance of teams can be influenced by the scoreline ( Lago-Peñas, 2012 ; Gómez et al., 2013). Soccer players perform significantly less high-intensity activity when winning than when losing or when the score is tied ( Lago et al., 2010 ). It was also shown that teams had longer periods of possession in matches when they were losing than when they were winning (Lago-Peñas and Dellal, 2010; Lago-Peñas and Gomez-Lopez, 2014), teams played more in the attack and defensive zones when the score was level
