Evaluation of the utility of cardiac ultrasonography of patients in a surgical intensive care unit

leading to changes in management were as follows: (1) pleural effusions leading to placement of percutaneous drainage (8 times), (2) intra-abdominal fluid/collection leading to placement of percutaneous drainage (4 times), (3) one intracardiac thrombus and 10 DVTs leading to administration of anticoagulant, and (4) cholecystitis leading to cholecystectomy (1 times). The US was also used to confirm the diagnosis of abdominal compartment syndrome by showing a narrow, compressed IVC in a patient with intra-abdominal hypertension who subsequently required decompressive

The effect of p-coumaric acid and ellagic acid on the liver and lungs in a rat model of sepsis

, respectively, by gavage. The doses of PC and EA were selected according to similar studies on this and related topics [ 25 , 26 ]. The doses were achieved by dissolving the PC in 5% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and the EA in normal saline (1–2 mL/dose). After 7 days of treatment, a model of intra-abdominal sepsis was induced in the rats of the S, PC, EA, and PCE groups with an intraperitoneal (ip.) injection of 10 mg/kg LPS. The rats in the control group were administered the same volume of saline intraperitoneally [ 27 ]. After inducing sepsis and until the surgical

Echinocytes in the peripheral blood of patients infected with dengue virus may be a predictor of disease severity

acute liver injury and is a common finding in patients suffering from dengue infection, particularly in those with dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome [ 7 ]. Additionally, serum high-density lipoproteins (HDL) decrease substantially during the critical phase of severe dengue, dengue hemorrhagic fever, and dengue shock syndrome compared with uncomplicated dengue fever [ 8 ]. Pathological sequelae of abnormal HDL in patients with liver disease, result in echinocyte formation [ 9 ]. However, to our knowledge, there are no case reports or studies regarding

Perioperative insulin therapy

constitute stressors, which lead to metabolic perturbation. Perioperative hyperglycemia is associated with the stress-induced release of counter-regulatory hormones and proinflammatory cytokines, which, in turn, result in increased endogenous glucose production [ 42 ] and a state of impaired insulin sensitivity. This transient insulin resistance, the so-called “diabetes of injury” [ 43 ], is most pronounced on the first postoperative day and may persist for days or weeks after surgery depending on the anatomic location and invasiveness of the intervention [ 44 , 45

Current trends in the risk prediction for hepatitis B virus-related hepatocellular carcinoma

for HCC in patients with CHB even though HCC can develop in its absence. In both East Asian and Western populations, patients with CHB and cirrhosis have a more than a 5-fold increased incidence of HCC compared with CHB patients without cirrhosis [ 4 ]. As liver injury and fibrosis in patients with CHB accrues over time, the incidence of HCC also increases with age [ 5 ]. Other nonmodifiable risk factors include male sex [ 1 ] and a family history of HCC [ 6 ]. Additional liver insults from coinfection (e.g. hepatitis C, hepatitis delta) or concomitant liver disease
