Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection and the Takotsubo Syndrome: An Association to be Taken into Account

Veronica Hernandez Jimenez, Aranzazu Garcia Romero and Jesus Saavedra Falero

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 16, 2019

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) are two causes of acute non-arteriosclerotic myocardial infarction. These two entities share some characteristics such as greater involvement in women, preceded by an emotional stressor and an etiopathogeny not clearly known. Recently it has been seen that these two entities may be related. We describe a case of a young woman with a myocardial infarction due to a SCAD who developed a TTS. A 44-year-old woman, without known cardiovascular risk factors, who went to the Emergency Department due to a chest pain lasting 2 ho...

Plastic Additive Bisphenol A: Toxicity in Surface- and Groundwater Crustaceans

Gerhardt A

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 16, 2019

Bisphenol A (BPA) is being considered by the European Union as a substance of very high concern, occurring worldwide due to its wide application in many plastic products, building materials, coatings and epoxy resins. The toxicity of BPA in groundwater invertebrates is insufficiently understood. Both acute (24 h) and chronic (28 d) toxicity was compared in Daphnia magna and ecologically important crustaceans in surface water (Gammarus fossarum, Eucyclops serrulatus) and groundwater (Niphargopsis casparyi, Proasellus slavus). Survival and spontaneous locomotory activity was recorded in real-tim...

A New QSAR Model for Acute Fish Toxicity based on Mined Structural Alerts

Giuseppina Gini, Thomas Ferrari, Anna Lombardo, Antonio Cassano and Emilio Benfenati

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 14, 2019

In this paper we discuss the problem of predicting the fish toxicity property of chemical compounds, and show how this can be approached using a computational intelligence method. There are two views on assessing toxicities: One says that such properties can be derived from the whole molecular structure, the other that some specific functional substructures, called Structural Alerts (SA), are able to explain the toxicity. In this work, a new Structure-Activity Relationship (SAR) approach is proposed to mine molecular fragments that act like SAs for the biological activity. We apply our data mi...

Clinical Inspection and Image Exams Evaluation of Traumatic Wounds: A Case Report

Vitor Jose Fonseca, Renata Silveira Sagnori, Gabriel Albuquerque Guillen, Marcio de Moraes and Alexander Tadeu Sverzut

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 14, 2019

The face is in a position exposed to trauma, which often leads to soft tissue rupture, favoring the penetration and retention of foreign bodies. The present paper is a case report which aims to clarify some pitfalls in the evaluation of traumatic wounds. A 28-year-old female who was a victim of an automobile accident, presenting lacerations in the face already sutured during our evaluation, with suspicion of bone fractures. Computed tomography evaluation showed comminuted fractures in the anterior frontal sinus wall and foreign bodies similar to glass fragments within the frontal sinus and rig...

Myocardial Infarction Secondary to Multiple Coronary-Pulmonary Fistula in a High Performance Athlete

Gil Ramirez Andreina, Burgos Lucrecia Maria, Chillik Ivan Ezequiel, Pelletier Maria, Larocca Calvino Mariana, Spaletra Pablo and Elizari Maria Amalia

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 14, 2019

The incidence of CF is 0.002% of general population, observed in 0.2% of adult patients undergoing coronary angiography. More frequently of congenital origin, they have also been described related to invasive procedures, chest trauma or post myocardial infarction. In 55% of cases they are originated from the right coronary artery, in 35% from left coronary artery and 5% in both simultaneously. Seventy percent of CF drain into right cavities (low pressure circuits), 15% into pulmonary artery and just 3% into left cavities....

Epidemiology of Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Ruptures in Men and Women

Maria Casado, Roberto Seijas, Albert Perez-Bellmunt, Raul Navarro, Paolo Ragazzi and Pedro Alvarez

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 14, 2019

In the practice of sports that require impact and pivot movements such as football or skiing, knee injuries are common and among these is important to underline the rupture of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). Non-contact movements cause a 70% of ACL injuries and there is a high incidence of ruptures in women. Therefore, the objective of this study is to analyse what are the causes for the difference in incidence between men and women in terms of ACL ruptures. Through the search in the previous literature it has been observed that the fact that female athletes suffer ACL injuries with a hi...

Non-Traumatic First Rib Fractures Secondary to Opposing Muscle Contractions: A Case Series

Jamie L Weis

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 12, 2019

While first rib fractures typically occur from direct, traumatic injuries and have high rates of serious complication, less commonly, non-traumatic first rib fractures are encountered in young athletes. This paper presents the cases of a teenage basketball player with a first rib fracture after stretching, and that of a teenage cheerleader with a first rib fracture from straining to lift another cheerleader. Both patients became asymptomatic following conservative treatment and returned to sports. These cases were then evaluated next to the existing literature. The mechanism for these non-trau...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 12, 2019

The SMART clinic was firstly established at Al Wakra Health Center in the Southern region of Doha, Qatar. At the clinic individuals were screened for type II DM and depending on the outcome, a specific pathway was designed for them to follow ensuring patients and their families remained on the correct health initiative. A cross-sectional study design was used to study adult Qatari nationals registered at Al Wakra Health center's Smart Clinic using data obtained between (Jan 2015-Jan 2016). The sample chosen was based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Using scaled hemoglobin A1c readings, pa...

An Exploratory Analysis of the Role of Religion in Colorectal Cancer Screening among Safety-Net Clinic Patients

Crystal Y Lumpkins, K Allen Greiner, Christine Daley, Jannette Berkley-Patton, Jinxiang Hu and Shana Palla

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 11, 2019

Colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence among low income populations is disproportionate when compared to the general population. Cancer screening studies show religion as a potentially influential factor in individual screening. The present study was an exploratory analysis of religious involvement (RI) among older safety-net clinic patients who participated in 90-day follow up calls during an intervention trial. Results show RI among participants (n = 185) did not significantly predict nor was associated with screening for CRC (OR = 1.36, p = 0.35). The percentage of participants that self-identif...

Incessant Risk Alarms Associated with Farming and Consuming Crops Cultivated in Host Communities of Gold Mining Operations in Ghana: Truth, Exaggeration, Ignorance or Mischief

Kenneth Bedu-Addo, Martha Ofori-Kuragu and Kwaku Boaky Apau

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: December 31, 2018

Heavy metals and metalloids, some of which are extremely beneficial for the survival of humans, flora and fauna can have devastating effects on same and the environment. Bioaccumulation and bio-magnification two methods via which metals and metalloids are assimilated into food chains as well as dermal and ingestion exposure to heavy metals and metalloids are believed by many residents in the Obuasi Municipality as leading public health threats to peasant farmers, their spouses and children. Risk assessment for three scenarios viz children, adult males and adult females were investigated using ...
