  • LDLR C1725T Gene Polymorphism Frequency in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients With Dyslipidemia

    Dyslipidemia has a substantial role in the development of cardiovascular diseases in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Determining the genetic profile of T2DM patients with dyslipidemia is important in order to reduce the risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications. Low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) plays a critical role in plasma lipoprotein hemostasis.

  • Systemic Immunosuppression in High-Risk Penetrating Keratoplasty: A Systematic Review

    Cornea transplantation has a high success rate and typically only requires topical immunomodulation. However, in high-risk cases, systemic immunosuppression can be used. We conducted a systematic review on the efficacy and side effects of systemic immunosuppression for high-risk cornea transplantation.

To Resect or Not to Resect Extrahepatic Bile Duct in Gallbladder Cancer?
The indications for and limitations of extrahepatic bile duct resection (EHBDR) in the context of gallbladder (GB) cancer are unclear. The purpose of this review was to examine the current literature to determine the impact of EHBDR on loco-regional recurrence and survival in GB cancer. The EMBASE and Medline databases were searched up to February 2016 using the terms: extrahepatic bile duct resection and gallbladder cancer. Studies published in the last 20 years were eligible for inclusion. Vol. 9 | No. 2 | 2017 Full Text

Symptomatic Gallstones in the Young: Changing Trends of the Gallstone Disease-Related Hospitalization in the State of New York: 1996 - 2010
The aim of the study was to evaluate if the gallstone-related hospitalizations in the young (< 20 years of age) have increased over time in both the Bronx County and New York State as a whole. We retrospectively reviewed 15 years (1996 - 2010) of Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System (SPARCS) data of New York State Department of Health. Patients with ICD-9 code diagnosis of 574 (cholelithiasis) among the first three discharge diagnoses were reviewed. Vol. 9 | No. 2 | 2017 Full Text

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography in the Evaluation of Cerebral Tumors: A Case Report
In their daily clinical practice, physicians have to confront diagnostic dilemmas which cannot be resolved by the application of only one imaging technique. In this case report, we present a 66-year-old woman who was admitted to our institution for the surgical resection of a recently diagnosed brain tumor. The patient had a history of epileptic seizures and was hospitalized in the past for anti-phospholipid syndrome related to a non-Hodgkin lymphoma in remission. Vol. 9 | No. 1 | 2017 Full Text

Isolated Right Ventricular Dilated Cardiomyopathy: An Early Diagnosis
Because of an incomplete right bundle branch block, a severe right ventricular dilatation with no left ventricular cardiomyopathy was found in a 44-year-old man. Magnetic resonance and transesophageal echocardiography confirmed the finding and these tests also failed to find any potential cause. A pulmonary hemodynamic study and a coronary angiography were strictly normal. Vol. 7 | No. 10 | 2015 Full Text
