BACKGROUND: Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) carries a poor prognosis in both adult and pediatric patients. It is a life-threatening condition in newborns. Current recommendations advocate the use of targeted monotherapy as a first-line approach for the treatment of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN). In case of an inadequate clinical response to treatment, an addition of a second or third agent is considered. PAH is usually managed with a phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor or an endothelin receptor blocker...

Serum C-reactive protein (CRP)/albumin ratio (CAR) is demonstrated as a more precise marker in determining the prognosis of critical diseases than albumin and CRP levels, separately. Recently, inflammatory biomarkers are increasingly used for both screening and prognosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). As an ischemia-dependent risk index, CAR is an independent marker of in-hospital and long-term all-cause mortality in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention...

Objectives: Treatment of paravisceral aortic infections poses several challenges because standard therapy with excision of all infected tissues and extraanatomic reconstruction is frequently not possible without jeopardizing visceral perfusion. In situ reconstruction with rifampin-soaked prosthetic graft or endovascular repair with stent grafts runs the risk of reinfection. We present a case of a paravisceral aortic infection, where cryopreserved allograft was used for the reconstruction of the aorta...
