Antibiotic Resistance Complicates The Treatment Of Many Infections

Antibiotic Resistance Complicates The Treatment Of Many Infections

A growing challenge in the treatment of staph infections is that the bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics, including daptomycin. Antibiotic resistance not only complicates the treatment of many infections, it also raises the cost of treating those infections. But a recent United Nations report claiming that drug resistant diseases could kill 10 million people…

‘White Coat Hypertension’ Die From Heart Disease Than Normal People

White coat hypertension, a condition in which a patient’s blood pressure readings are higher when take at the doctor’s office compared to other settings, was originally attributed to the anxiety patients might experience during medical appointments. However, over the years, research has suggested the elevated readings might be a sign of underlying risk for future…

Esophageal Reconstruction were achieved based on several metrics

Esophageal Reconstruction With Wide Range Of Complications

Esophageal Reconstruction; The treatment of esophageal disorders, such as congenital anomalies and esophageal cancer, results in circumferential, full-thickness, extended segment loss of the esophagus. Gastric pull-up conduits or colon interpositions are used to reestablish the luminal continuity. However, the use of these esophageal substitutes can cause various surgical morbidities and mortality. Although tissue engineering promises…
