DNA shows why being short can be bad for your heart

When Randy Newman sang his tongue-in-cheek tune about short people, he called attention to their “little hands, little eyes” and their “little baby legs.” Nowhere does his 1978 hit mention that short people also have an increased risk of coronary artery disease. But scientists have established...

Fracture Fridays: Getting a leg up on the competition (Re-post)

An 80 pound 12 year old soccer star tripped in a hole while challenging for the ball. Another player on the pitch stumbled in the same (big) hole and landed awkwardly on the first player’s leg. Even the fans on the next field over heard the snap. EMS was called and an obviously uncomfortable 12 year old male with intact distal foot pulses and sensation presents to your ED. You do what you normally do and get an X-Ray.

Critical Care

In a recent editorial in Critical Care, Monnet and Teboul emphasize the value of passive leg raising (PLR) as a reliable bedside indicator of fluid responsiveness in critically ill patients [1]. This is because PLR induces changes in venous return, regardless of the mode of ventilation or the underlying cardiac arrhythmias. In their eloquently written editorial, they provide five practical rules for performing a PLR maneuver.

Treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, severe skin disease in which progressive ulceration develops spontaneously or after skin trauma. Unrecognised pyoderma gangrenosum may result in the destruction of an entire leg or arm or large parts of the trunk, and the condition is potentially lethal. Patients with severe disease are usually treated with immunosuppressants such as prednisolone. Because of the rarity of the disease, clinical trials are scarce.

Prevention of blood clots in patients undergoing cardiac or thoracic surgery | Cochrane

Patients undergoing surgery have an increased probability of developing blood clots in their veins (venous thromboembolism). These clots may be in the deep veins (deep vein thrombosis) or travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). As in other types of surgery, effective prevention of blood clots (thromboprophylaxis) after cardiac or thoracic surgery may reduce the risk of postoperative vein clots. These potential benefits, however, have to be balanced against the associated risks of bleeding. This systematic review looked at the effectiveness and safety of anticoagulants (medicines that reduce the ability of the blood to clot), mechanical interventions (such as pneumatic pumps on the legs to promote blood flow), and caval filters (a type of vascular filter, implanted into the main abdominal vein to prevent movement of clots from the legs to the lungs) in patients undergoing cardiac or thoracic surgery.
