Tolerability of Palmitoylethanolamide in a Pediatric Population Suffering from Migraine: A Pilot Study
Tolerability of Palmitoylethanolamide in a Pediatric Population Suffering from Migraine: A Pilot Study: Background. Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is emerging as a new therapeutic approach in pain and inflammatory conditions, and it has been evaluated in studies on various painful diseases. The aim of this open-label study was to evaluate the efficacy of ultramicronized PEA (umPEA) in the prophylactic treatment of migraine. Methods. The study included 70 patients with mean age of 10.3 ± 2.7 (24.5% M...

Successful Liposteroid Therapy for a Recurrent Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis with Down Syndrome
Successful Liposteroid Therapy for a Recurrent Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis with Down Syndrome: Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare and life-threatening disorder. Early diagnosis and appropriate management are essential for their better prognosis and patients' quality of life (QOL). It is considered that Down syndrome patients with IPH have a worse prognosis compared to other IPH cases. A 2-year-old girl with Down syndrome received the diagnosis of IPH after two episodes of massive...

 Hindawi Publishing CorporationEfficacy of the Combined Administration of Systemic and Intra-Articular Tranexamic Acid in Total Hip Arthroplasty Secondary to Femoral Neck Fracture: A Retrospective StudyBackground. Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is associated with substantial blood loss in the postoperative course. Tranexamic acid (TXA) is a potent antifibrinolytic agent, routinely administered by intravenous (IV) and topical (intra-articular, IA) route, which can possibly interrupt the cascade of events...

The GRACE Scale in the Prognosis of Patients with Takotsubo Syndrome
The GRACE Scale in the Prognosis of Patients with Takotsubo Syndrome: Background. The prognosis of Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is comparable to that of the non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). The GRACE scale is used to assess the risk of premature and long-term mortality in patients with NSTEMI in order to select the most favorable treatment strategy. Methods. 101 patients with TTS hospitalized in four centers of invasive cardiology in Podlaskie Voivodeship during the period 2008–2012 were...

Efficacy and Safety of Non-Vitamin K Anticoagulants for Atrial Fibrillation in Relation to Different Renal Function Levels: A Network Meta-Analysis
Efficacy and Safety of Non-Vitamin K Anticoagulants for Atrial Fibrillation in Relation to Different Renal Function Levels: A Network Meta-Analysis: Background. We performed a network meta-analysis (NMA) comparing the efficacy (stroke or systemic embolism) and safety (major bleeding) among different non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and renal impairment, with the aim of recommending the proper drug and the dose based on renal function....

A Rare Cause of Hypophosphatemia: Raine Syndrome Changing Clinical Features with Age
A Rare Cause of Hypophosphatemia: Raine Syndrome Changing Clinical Features with Age: AbstractRaine Syndrome (RS) is caused by biallelic loss-of-function mutations in FAM20C gene and characterized by hypophosphatemia, typical facial and skeletal features. Subperiosteal bone formation and generalized osteosclerosis are the most common radiological findings. Here we present a new case with RS. A 9-month-old male patient on a home-type ventilator was referred for hypophosphatemia. He was born with a...

 Hindawi Publishing CorporationModeling, Synchronization, and FPGA Implementation of Hamiltonian Conservative HyperchaosConservative chaotic systems have potentials in engineering application because of their superiority over the dissipative systems in terms of ergodicity and integer dimension. In this paper, five-dimension Euler equations are constructed by integrating two of sub-Euler equations, which are contributory to the exploration of higher-dimensional systems. These Euler equations compose...

Clinical Significance of Hepatocyte Growth Factor and Transforming Growth Factor-Beta-1 Levels in Assessing Disease Activity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Clinical Significance of Hepatocyte Growth Factor and Transforming Growth Factor-Beta-1 Levels in Assessing Disease Activity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Background. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) are inflammatory cytokines which function as key regulators of immunological homeostasis and inflammatory responses. They have been linked to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). In this study, we aim to assess the levels of TGF-β and HGF and other inflammatory...

Early Response to Definitive Chemoradiation for Esophageal Carcinoma Cuniculatum
A Case Report of an Early Response to Definitive Chemoradiation for Esophageal Carcinoma Cuniculatum: This case report describes a 63-year-old female with a locally advanced esophageal carcinoma cuniculatum treated with definitive chemoradiation who had a rapid and early response. This case is illustrative of an aggressive behavior with rapid response and rapid recurrence. The cases of esophageal carcinoma cuniculatum as well as the closely related clinical entity of verrucous carcinoma are reviewed...

Listeria Cerebritis with Tumor Necrosis Factor Inhibition
Listeria Cerebritis with Tumor Necrosis Factor Inhibition: Background. Listeria monocytogenes is historically a central nervous system pathogen of consideration in the very young, very old, and immune suppressed. Diagnosis of Listeria is based on positive bodily fluid culture or PCR testing. Cerebral edema is nonspecific and can be a manifestation of vasculitis, trauma, anoxia, ischemia, infarction, malignancy, or an infectious process. A main mechanism of immune protection against Listeria is tumor...

Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder Attack Triggered by Herpes Zoster Infection
Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder Attack Triggered by Herpes Zoster Infection: Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder is a severe autoimmune disease of the central nervous system characterized by recurrent inflammatory events primarily involving the optic nerves and spinal cord. Recently, a triggering role of infectious events in the development of NMOSD has been suggested. Varicella zoster virus is the most common viral infection involved, though the linkage with anti-aquaporin-4 antibodies...

Symptomatic Internal Carotid Agenesis in Children
Symptomatic Internal Carotid Agenesis in Children: Carotid artery agenesis is a rare congenital anomaly, and there are controversies in the leading cause for it. We present a 6-year-old girl with resolved focal neurological ischemic stroke that showed bilateral internal carotid artery (ICA) agenesis. Through this paper, we highlight the carotid canal congenital obliteration hypothesis as it may be a risk for such finding.
