Purulent pericarditis caused by group a streptococcus. (1/9)

Purulent pericarditis is a rare disease that is most often caused by organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, viridans streptococci, Haemophilus influenzae, and anaerobic bacteria. We present an unusual case of purulent pericarditis caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Lancefield group A streptococcus (GAS), and we provide a review of the literature.  (+info)

Pericardial tamponade masquerading as septic shock. (2/9)

A 53-year-old man with steroid dependent rheumatoid arthritis presented with fever and serous articular drainage. Oral antibiotics were initially prescribed. Subsequent hemodynamic instability was attributed to septic shock. Further evaluation revealed a pericardial effusion with tamponade. Pericardiocentesis of purulent fluid promptly corrected the hypotension. Proteus mirabilis was later isolated from both the infected joint and the pericardial fluid. This is the first report of combined Proteus mirabilis septic arthritis and purulent pericarditis. It documents the potential for atypical transmission of Gram-negative pathogens, to the pericardium, in patients with a high likelihood of preexisting pericardial disease. In immunocompromised patients, the typical signs and symptoms of pericarditis may be absent, and the clinical presentation of pericardial tamponade may be misinterpreted as one of septic shock. This case underscores the value of a careful physical examination and proper interpretation of ancillary studies. It further illustrates the importance of initial antibiotic selection and the need for definitive treatment of septic arthritis in immunocompromised patients.  (+info)

Bacterial pericarditis and tamponade due to nonencapsulated Haemophilus influenzae complicating a case of adult community-acquired pneumonia. (3/9)

We report a case of bacterial pericarditis in an immunologically competent adult female caused by nonencapsulated Haemophilus influenzae (H influenzae) that was complicated by the acute development of life-threatening pericardial tamponade. H influenzae is a gram-negative coccobacillus, a pathogen most frequently associated with childhood exanthema (otitis media, meningitis) and, less frequently, adult pneumonia. Encapsulated, type b, or typable H influenzae is the strain implicated in childhood infections. On the other hand, nonencapsulated or nontypable H influenzae is the specific strain most often associated with exacerbation of chronic obstructive airway disease. Bacterial pericarditis caused by either subtype of H influenzae is exceedingly rare. We have located only 15 previously reported cases of H influenzae pericarditis occurring in adults in the world medical literature, the majority of which date back to the pre-antibiotic era. In 12 of these 15 cases (the only cases in which typing could be accomplished), the encapsulated strain of H influenzae was cultured from the pericardial fluid. Thus, to the best of our knowledge, we are reporting here the first case of bacterial pericarditis caused by nonencapsulated H influenzae in an immunologically competent adult.  (+info)

Complications after transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus. (4/9)

To evaluate the short- and mid-term results and complications ensuing the transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Between October 1999 and December 2005, 117 patients (34 males and 83 females) underwent attempted percutaneous closure of PDA with a minimum diameter of more than 3 mm. Follow-up evaluations were conducted at 1 day and 1, 3, 6, 12 months after the performance of the transcatheter closure. The median age of patients at catheterization was 11 yr (range, 0.6 to 68 yr), median weight was 30 kg (range, 6 to 74 kg), and the median diameter of PDA was 4 mm (range, 3 to 8 mm). This procedure was conducted successfully in 114 patients (97.4%), using different devices. Major complications were detected in 4 patients (3.4%); significant hemolysis (2), infective endocarditis (1), failed procedure due to embolization (1). Minor complications occurred in 6 patients (5.1%); mild narrowing of the descending aorta (2) and mild encroachment on the origin of the left pulmonary artery (4). Although the transcatheter closure of PDA may be considered to be effective, several complications, including hemolysis, embolization, infective endocarditis, and the narrowing of adjacent vessels may occur in certain cases.  (+info)

Supervisor: Dr Weng Chan, Professor Paul Williams, and Dr Sarah Kuehne (University of Birmingham). Propionibacterium acnes, an aerotolerant anaerobic Gram-positive organism, is commonly known as a skin commensal due to its colonisation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. However, P. acnes can act as an opportunistic pathogen to cause invasive infections, particularly those associated with medical implants. P. acnes is the most frequently isolated pathogen in prosthetic shoulder joint infections, and is increasingly found in medical device-related cerebro- and cardiovascular infections. Until recently, P. acnes has been susceptible to a wide range of antibiotics. However, over the past 2 decades, resistance to metronidazole, macrolides, tetracycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole has been observed with increasing frequency. Hence, new classes of antibiotics are necessary to specifically combat medical device-associated infections caused by P. acnes.. Teixobactin is a recently ...

Chlamydia pneumoniae is detectable in the blood vessels of patients suffering from arteriosclerosis. Risk for arteriosclerosis is modulated by the apolipoprotein E (apoE) allele. We assessed the significance of the apoE genotype as a risk factor for vascular C. pneumoniae infection by determining the genotype of 30 coronary heart disease patients with PCR-proven C. pneumoniae infection of coronary artery tissue. The apoE genotype is not distinctly associated with an increased risk for vascular C. pneumoniae infection.. ...

Patients with myocarditis tend to be young and outcome can be highly variable. In this analysis, the authors show that patients with biopsy-proven myocarditis warrant close clinical follow-up, especially if abnormalities on CMR are noted. Examining survival based on the presence of LGE, the survival curves separated late (more than 1 year after presentation). Because LGE represents scar, LGE likely identifies a ventricle less likely to recover after the initial viral insult. While this is a low-powered study due to the fact that it is a single-center analysis of an uncommon disease, LGE identified 97% (28 of 29) of patients who had a cardiac death from myocarditis. However, only 28% (28 of 99) of myocarditis patients with LGE died. While CMR sensitivity for the detection of myocarditis is poor (53%), it identifies higher risk myocarditis patients. Patients with myocarditis who have LGE should be watched closely for several years. However, data are insufficient to become complacent in those ...

We examined the hypothesis that stromal fibroblasts modulate the power of endothelial cells (EC) to recruit lymphocytes within a site-specific way. source. Within the dermal co-cultures, neutralisation of IL-6 or TGF- triggered incomplete recovery of cytokine-induced lymphocyte adhesion; this is comprehensive when both had been neutralised. Exogenous IL-6 was also discovered to inhibit reaction to TNF-+IFN-. Regular stromal fibroblasts may actually regulate the cytokine-sensitivity of vascular endothelium, while fibroblasts connected with chronic irritation bypass this and create a straight inflammatory phenotype. Activities of IL-6 may be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, with regards SRT3190 to the regional milieu. 309 cells/mm2/106 perfused SRT3190 for EC mono-cultures; meanSEM; 29 which might donate to the augmentation of adhesion in synovial co-cultures.

substrate oxidation such as that of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids, are based on tracer (14C or13C) data, and often depend on the isotopic content of expired CO2. The recovery of tracer-labelled CO2 generated from the oxidation of13C labelled substrates may not be 100% over short term. This can lead to underestimation of oxidation rate of substrates, and consequently a correction for the incomplete recovery of tracer has to be applied by the determination of the recovery of13CO2 in the breath during tracer bicarbonate infusions. We have studied the recovery of tracer-labelled bicarbonate using a bolus administration model, and further characterized kinetics of bicarbonate using a three-compartment model, to assess which compartmental fluxes changed during the change from a fasted state to fed state. Recovery of bicarbonate was lower at 69% and 67% (fasted and fed state) than the value of 71% and 74% found during earlier longer term of continuous infusions. During feeding, there was a ...

Listeria monocytogenes is a rare pathogen that principally affects neonates, pregnant women and immunosuppressed patients. It most commonly causes gastroenteritis in healthy adults and central nervous system infection in immunosuppressed patients. Cardiovascular infection due to Listeria monocytogenes is rare and tends to cause endocarditis.1 This article presents the case of a mycotic aortic aneurysm due to Listeria monocytogenes.. A 76-year-old man with a history of hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia and ischaemic heart disease attended the emergency department following 2 months of general discomfort, hyporexia, low back pain and 7kg weight loss in the previous 2 weeks. The patient was afebrile and the physical examination revealed no significant findings. The vascular examination found distal pulses in both lower limbs.

Intracellular pH (pHi) is an important factor for understanding cellular processes associated with the response of central neurons to metabolic disturbances such as anoxia or ischemia. In the present study, pHi was fluorometrically measured in 2′7′-bis(carboxyethyl)-5(6)-carboxyfluorescin (BCECF)-filled, voltage-clamped dorsal vagal neurons (DVN) of brainstem slices from rats during metabolic disturbances activating ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels. Chemical anoxia induced by cyanide, rotenone or p-trifluoromethoxy-phenylhydrazone (FCCP) decreased pHi by ,0.4 pH units. Untreated neurons with normal pHi baseline (7.2) responded to glucose-free superfusate after a delay of 7-16 min with a progressive fall of pHi. In contrast, pHi increased by ,0.2 pH units after 10 min in cells that had a mean pHi of 6.8 due to incomplete recovery from a CN-induced acid load prior to glucose depletion. Metabolic arrest, induced by cyanide in glucose-free solution after 30 min preincubation in glucose-free ...

Background-Lead-related or valve-related endocarditis can complicate cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) infection in patients with both CIED and prosthetic valves. The objective of this study was to determine the outcomes of transvenous lead extraction for CIED infection in patients
Several studies have identified characteristics associated with CIED infections. In a single-center case-control study,18 case subjects were more likely to have diabetes mellitus and heart failure and to have undergone generator replacement; renal dysfunction (glomerular filtration rate ,60 mL · min−1 · 1.72 m−2) had the strongest (odds ratio [OR] 4.8) association with CIED infection. Renal dysfunction was also associated with risk of CIED infection in a more recent nested case-control investigation.19 In addition, Lekkerkerker et al19 identified oral anticoagulant use as an associated risk factor for infection. In another single-center case-control study, 29 patients with PPM infection were included, and long-term corticosteroid use (OR=13.9) and the presence of more than 2 pacing leads (OR=5.41) were identified as independent correlates of device infection.20. In addition to patient factors, procedural characteristics may also play an important role in the development of CIED infection. ...
Over 140 US hospitals and clinics have signed up for Medtronics risk-sharing program that seeks to lower infection rates with pacemakers and defibrillators through the use of the companys Tyrx Antibacterial Envelope.

The venous input matches the ventricular output by the end of systole, and the intra-pericardial space is once again full. When diastolic ventricular relaxation ensues, loss of blood from the atria does not relieve atrial pressure because the hydraulic action of the displaced pericardial fluid now impinges on the emptying atria. Right atrial communication with the engorged systemic venous reservoir also tends to maintain a high level of pressure in the atria, preventing the y-descent and often producing a y-ascent ...

Liposomes are currently being investigated as potential parenterally used drug carriers. The main factor that influences the in vivo behavior of such liposomes is their vesicle size. A detailed and reliable knowledge of vesicle size is therefore necessary in order to interpret results of physical and biological investigations in a correct manner. It has earlier been discovered that it is feasible to determine the size distribution of vesicle dispersions in a reliable manner and it appears especially useful to employ the combination of SEC fractionation, PCS and the enzymatic PC quantitation. A drawback discovered was for certain liposome dispersions that in some of the dispersions SEC fractionation showed incomplete recovery of the vesicles. This indicated a demand for a different fractionation method which does not have the limitations that the SEC method described above has. To this end flow field-flow fractionation was chosen. In a previous study the influence of some key factors such as ...
In 2015, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) proposed a conceptual definition that applies to all types of SE: (1) SE starts as a condition resulting from failure of seizure-termination mechanisms or the initiation of pathological mechanisms that likely lead to continuous seizure activity, and (2) SE creates long-term consequences that begin to occur after the onset of SE, including neuronal death, neuronal injury, and alteration of neuronal networks. This definition hinges on the identification of the semiology of SE: the clinical manifestations of seizure activity (Table 16-1). Specifically for generalized CSE, criterion 1 is defined when seizures last longer than 5 minutes and criterion 2 occurs at the point that long-term consequences begin to appear, around 30 minutes.1 Convulsive SE is also defined as recurrent seizures between which there is incomplete recovery of consciousness.4 ...

This medical exhibit depicts thoracic aortic dissection with pericardial tamponade in a series of illustrations. Labeled blood vessel layers include the tunica adventitia (outer layer), tunica media (middle layer) and tunica intima (inner layer). Shows the intimal layer tear progressing from a balloon-like structure in the aortic arch to a rupture of the proximal aorta with bleeding into the pericardial cavity. This condition, pericardial (cardiac) tamponade, is life-threatening and greatly reduces the hearts ability to function.

The current study provides an updated contemporary epidemiology of the microbiology of CIED infections requiring extraction. It is the largest report to date on this topic and used multiple sources for microorganism cultures including lead or lead material, blood, pocket tissue, and pocket swab cultures. There were multiple observations with direct implications for clinical practice and patient management.. This topic is becoming increasingly relevant in clinical practice due to an increase in the number of CIED implants but, most important, due to increase in CIED infections (2,3). In fact, the longevity of patients with cardiac disease has increased and the number of system revisions or upgrades that a patient would require in a lifetime will increase in parallel. The risk of a CIED infection, a time-dependent variable, would likely follow a similar trend and the rates of CIED infections have indeed shown a disproportionate trend to increasing CIED implants (2,3). CIED infections carry not ...

Results Seventeen patients presented at a median age of 1.3 years (range: 0.4-15.4 years) in cardiac failure with a mean fractional shortening of 15±3%. Eleven patients required mechanical ventilation and intravenous inotropes and seven required extra-corporeal mechanical oxygenation. Four of the five deaths occurred in patients who had a short prodromal illness of less than 48 hours. All patients with ST segment elevation died (n=4). All non-fulminant cases survived. Event-free survival occurred in 11/17 (65%) patients. Five (29%) patients died and one patient underwent heart transplantation. Complete recovery of cardiac function occurred within a median of 12 months (range: 1-48) in five patients. There was incomplete recovery in five patients and one patient had persistent dilated cardiomyopathy. ...
Much progress has been made in implementing potent antiretroviral therapy that is able to maximally suppress viral replication. However, these drug combinations do not result in viral eradication and, for many patients, virologic and immunologic control cannot be maintained. Even among patients with apparent virologic control, a ceiling effect seems to exist with failure of CD4 cell counts to rise on average more than 100 to 150 cells/mm^3, at least during the first 2 years of therapy. The incomplete recovery of immune function after initiation of therapy remains an obstacle in the management of HIV. Preservation of immune function by direct expansion of CD4 lymphocytes with rIL-2 could represent a significant additional treatment strategy. It also has been speculated recently that rIL-2 in combination with potent antiretroviral therapy may be a useful approach for purging HIV from the latently infected CD4 cells. It is hoped that intervention with rIL-2 therapy in combination with ...
