Canagliflozin Lowered The Risk In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Researchers examined that the antidiabetic sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor canagliflozin lowered the risk for hospitalization for heart failure (HF) or dying of cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. In fact, in this exploratory analysis from the Canagliflozin Cardiovascular Assessment Study (CANVAS), the 14% of patients with type 2 diabetes who already had HF appeared to benefit most. "Importantly, that needs to be tested in a heart failure dedicated study."

Evaluate The Endoscopic Surgical Repair Of Ossicular

Researchers determine to evaluate our experience with endoscopic repair of ossicular discontinuity at the incudostapedial joint, with or without an intact stapes suprastructure and present our hearing results. They classify results based on the causative pathology, the type of ossiculoplasty, and kind of lesion.

They demonstrate the ability to endoscopically place a total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP), measuring 4.25 mm, between the stapes footplate and the incus remnant to re-establish ossicular continuity.

Kidney Transplantation From Extended Criteria Donors

The study estimates the transplantation of a kidney from extended criteria donors with diagnosed brain-death forms to program that increases the number of transplantations.To compare the results of ECD with those of standard criteria donors (SCD).Collection of kidneys from extended criteria donors (ECD) with diagnosed brain-death forms a part of the collection program that increases the number of transplantations.
