May-Thurner syndrome is a rarely diagnosed condition in which patients develop iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT) due to an anatomical variant in which the right common iliac artery overlies and compresses the left common iliac vein against the lumbar spine. This variant has been shown to be present in over ...

Acute allergic angioedema is an abrupt-onset, unpredictable inflammatory reaction of the skin and mucous membranes. Without treatment, the condition may resolve within hours; however, when swallowing or breathing is affected, emergent medical attention is required. We report an atypical presentation of this condition, with a unique dietary cause. A 50-year-old ...

In patients with chronic nausea and/or vomiting, gastroparesis is frequently diagnosed, often on the basis of abnormal gastric emptying scintigraphy (GES). When typical treatments fail, patients may be referred to a referral center. This retrospective study evaluated the diagnoses made in patients referred for chronic nausea and vomiting and appraised ...

A 75-year-old woman presented with dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, and edema. Macroglossia, generalized petechiae, raccoon eyes sign, and peripheral neuropathy were present, and an echocardiogram showed cardiac dilatation and left ventricular systolic dysfunction. Rectal biopsy and immune fixation electrophoresis confirmed the diagnosis of AL amyloidosis.

Renal and urogenital disease is a prevalent finding of extrapulmonary Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Patients can present with unusual complaints not immediately suspicious for tuberculosis. We describe a 38-year-old man who presented with vomiting and an acute kidney injury. Imaging studies showed nodules throughout the lungs, retroperitoneum, abdominal viscera, and kidneys. Asymmetrical ...

Gold quantum clusters (Au-QCs) are mainly subnano sized structures. They are extremely important for optoelectronic and biomedical applications because of their luminescence property. It has been observed that the luminescence properties of the quantum clusters are readily quenched by most of the heavy metal solutions. Present study reports a quantitative ...

Zirconia is one of the most promising restorative biomaterial, because it has very favorable mechanical and chemical properties suitable for medical application. Zirconia ceramics (Zr[O.sub.2]) are becoming a prevalent biomaterial in dentistry and dental implantology. Zirconia stabilized with [Y.sub.2][O.sub.3] has the best properties for these applications. Zirconia biocompatibility had been ...

The present study investigates the effect of sol-gel derived Si[O.sub.2]-CaO-[P.sub.2][O.sub.5]-[K.sub.2]O-MgO bioglass system in contact with human monocytes. The ionic products released from the glass particles and their intracellular concentrations in monocytes, were analysed. Monocytes along with polynuclear cells play a key role in the host defence mechanisms due to their ...
