Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been one of the revolutionary discoveries in the world of science leading to cure of many of the hematological malignancies and for several nonmalignant conditions. It involves harvesting of stem cells from either the bone marrow most traditionally, peripheral blood or umbilical cord and then transplanting(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of sustained arrhythmia, which is now on course to reach epidemic proportions in the elderly population. AF is a commonly encountered comorbidity in patients with cardiac and major non-cardiac diseases. Morbidity and mortality associated with AF makes it a major healthcare burden. The objective of our article(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent arrhythmia worldwide and the most common arrhythmia leading to hospitalization. Due to a substantial increase in incidence and prevalence of AF over the past few decades, it attributes to an extensive economic and public health burden. The increasing number of hospitalizations, aging population, anticoagulation(More)
BACKGROUND Elderly patients with unstable coronary artery disease (CAD) have better outcomes with coronary revascularization than conservative treatment. With the improvement in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) techniques using drug eluting-stents, this became an attractive option in elderly. Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting(More)
Renal insufficiency is associated with high morbidity and mortality in multiple myeloma. One of the common causes for acute renal failure in multiple myeloma is cast nephropathy. It is important to reduce the levels of light chains to improve renal failure and also the overall outcome. Plasmapheresis has failed to show any significant improvement in renal(More)
AIM To evaluate the premise, that biodegradable polymer drug eluting stents (BD-DES) could improve clinical outcomes compared to second generation permanent polymer drug eluting stents (PP-DES), we pooled the data from all the available randomized control trials (RCT) comparing the clinical performance of both these stents. METHODS A systematic literature(More)
Coronary artery fistulas are abnormal connections between coronary artery territories and cardiac chambers or major vessels, most of them are congenital. Patients with coronary artery fistula can be asymptomatic or present with different symptoms like angina. Cardiac computed tomography (CT) is one of the best modalities for diagnosis. We present an elderly(More)
We are presenting a case of one of the largest un-ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm ever reported. Presented here is a rare case of a 69-year-old active smoker male with history of hypertension and incidental diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm of 6.2 cm in 2003, who refused surgical intervention at the time of diagnosis with continued smoking habit and(More)
