OBJECTIVE Venous thromboembolism is a common complication in patients with cancer, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. Clinical studies suggest that the incidence of venous thromboembolic events increased after treatment of these patients with antiangiogenic agents. Thrombi resolve through a process of remodeling, involving the formation of(More)
V enous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common complication and leading cause of mortality in patients with cancer. Management is usually by anticoagulation, but this only prevents thrombus extension and has little effect on thrombus resolution. Venous thrombi resolve through a natural process of organization and the formation of neovascular channels within the(More)
BACKGROUND Pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is characterized by an aggressive clinical course. Early diagnosis is a challenge and treatment consists principally of partial or total thyroidectomy±neck dissection and radioactive iodine therapy. Due to the rarity of PTC in children, there is no consensus on optimal surgical treatment. METHODS AND(More)
Epistaxis is a potentially life-threatening condition that can compromise a patient's airway, breathing and circulation. Early recognition of underlying bleeding diatheses that are amenable to medical therapy is imperative in order for timely treatment and to reduce morbidity. We present a case in which acquired haemophilia was diagnosed in an 83-year-old(More)
Acute cerebrovascular events including ischaemic stroke and subarachnoid haemorrhage are known to be associated with left ventricular dysfunction and significant electrocardiographic abnormalities that can mimic cardiac ischaemia. The authors present a case in which an intracerebral haemorrhage was diagnosed during the treatment of pneumonia in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To report our experience of sinogenic intracranial abscesses in the paediatric population and to guide medical and surgical management. METHODS All children with sinogenic intracranial abscesses presenting to a large university teaching hospital over a five-year period were included in the study. Data on clinical presentation, radiological(More)
