Though most goiters are benign and asymptomatic, they may cause concern when they create compressive symptoms, develop autonomous functioning nodules, or form suspicious nodules. Diagnostic evaluation should include clinical evaluation, laboratory tests including TSH, and consideration of additional evaluation and imaging(More)
The genetic basis of heart development is remarkably conserved from Drosophila to mammals, and insights from flies have greatly informed our understanding of vertebrate heart development. Recent evidence suggests that many aspects of heart function are also conserved and the genes involved in heart development also play roles in adult heart function. We(More)

The development of vascular complications is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. While the incidence of percutaneous coronary intervention-related vascular complications has greatly improved over time, female sex still persists as a significant and independent predictor of(More)
INTRODUCTION Dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is a life-threatening congenital health defect that requires rapid surgery. The most widely used approach is the arterial switch operation (ASO) developed by Jatene in the 1970s. The first set of children who received this intervention are now adults. The objective of this scoping review of the(More)
