Pulseless Electrical Activity Arrest as the First Symptom of Testicular Cancer with Subsequent Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens

arteriovenous fistula can be attempted [ 1 ]. Adjunctive measures include placement of an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, and fasciotomy [ 8 ]. Given the high incidence of PE with PCD, IVC filter placement is an important measure to prevent further PE that may be a complication of treatment. Case report A previously healthy 46-year-old male, on no medications, presented following a pulseless electrical activity (PEA) arrest after collapsing at home. He was resuscitated and had the return of spontaneous circulation before arriving at the nearby tertiary care hospital

Determination of Cut-off Serum Values for Resistin and S100B Protein in Patients Who Survived a Cardiac Arrest

Introduction Despite fifty years of research, cardiac arrest (CA) and complications resulting from hypoxic organ injury, remains one of the most significant challenges faced by physicians, knowing that the vast majority of patients with CA have an unfavourable prognosis with a higher chance of death and severe neurological disabilities [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. In the last few years, efforts have been focused on the best way to detect those patients who have a chance to survive and to recover. In an attempt to identify patients who survived after resuscitated CA

Expression pattern of long non-coding RNA growth arrest-specific 5 in the remission induction therapy in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia

to have aberrant expression or deregulation in diabetes ( 12 ), cancer ( 13 , 14 , 15 ) and other diseases. It has also been reported that ncRNAs are deregulated in leukemia ( 16 , 17 , 18 ). However, further inquiry into the role of ncRNAs in pediatric ALL is required. Growth arrest-specific 5 ( GAS5 ) is a long (more than 200 base pairs) non-coding RNA (lncRNA), which promotes apoptosis and halts the cell-cycle in T lymphocytes ( 8 ). Apart from its functional role as a growth arrest factor, GAS5 also imitates the glucocorticoid response element (GRE), a
