treatment during pregnancy may increase the risk of hypertension, preeclampsia, weight gain, hyperglycemia, immunosuppression, gastrointestinal ulceration, prelabor rupture of membranes (also referred to as premature rupture of membranes), and intrauterine growth restriction, but if these risks exist the magnitude is not known ( ). Early data suggested that first trimester exposure to glucocorticoids may be associated with an increased risk of fetal oral clefts ( ), but more recent data have failed (...) in an increase in circulating T regulatory cells and a restored capacity to inhibit cytokine production ( ). With the exception of certolizumab, all TNF-α inhibitors are transferred across the placenta. Placental transfer of certolizumab does not occur because it lacks an Fc portion required for active transport.

205. Spontaneous rupture of middle thoracic esophagus: thoracoscopic treatment. (Abstract)

Spontaneous rupture of middle thoracic esophagus: thoracoscopic treatment. Spontaneous rupture of the esophagus (so-called Boerhaave's syndrome) is considered a medical emergency. It carries a significant mortality rate and requires prompt treatment. The treatment of choice involves surgical repair of the esophageal defect, usually accomplished via laparotomy, thoracotomy, or both to accomplish esophageal repair and mediastinal debridement. We have treated an elderly patient with severe

to the formation of coronary plaque. 1–9 The pain experienced by patients suffering from stable angina is a direct result of the continued growth of this coronary plaque, without rupture or erosion. Angina pain develops when the body requires more oxygen (i.e. exertion or stress), causing the heart to work harder, but the now partially occluded coronary arteries are unable to vasodilate themselves to increase their own oxygen delivery. If this plaque is eroded or disrupted, the subendothelial layer (...) , depending on where you read this from) is not a diagnostic tool so do not use it as such.

Aneurysms present with varying risks of rupture, and patient-specific factors influence anticipated life expectancy, operative risk, and need to intervene. Careful attention to the choice of operative strategy along with optimal treatment of medical comorbidities is critical to achieving excellent outcomes. Moreover, appropriate postoperative surveillance is necessary to minimize subsequent aneurysm-related

Oral contrast may be beneficial in penetrating thoracoabdominal trauma to distend the esophagus and stomach if this is of clinical concern. Each center needs MDCT trauma protocols for each body region. Optimal diagnostic abdominopelvic MDCT for trauma includes IV contrast.
