Cancer therapies can affect the whole cardiovascular system, but these cardiotoxic effects are generally reported as changes in left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction. The most common cardiovascular adverse effects are LV dysfunction and heart failure (HF). Other adverse effects include hypertension, acute coronary syndromes, thromboembolic events, rhythm disturbances, and valvular and/or pericardial disease. Hence, prediction, early recognition, and timely management of cardiovascular complications in patients with cancer are gaining importance. This need gave birth to the concept of interdisciplinary cardiology-oncology (cardio-oncology) care delivered through teams of cardiologists, oncologists, and hematologists.Read More.
Epilepsies and epileptic syndromes are among the most common chronic neurological disorders in neonates, infants, and children. Remission occurs in 70% of epileptic children, while other cases experience frequent seizures and become refractory to various treatment modalities. The present study aimed to provide a narrative review of the most important risk factors for the recurrence of epilepsies in children by two child neurologists.Read More.

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE), also referred to as “watermelon stomach,” is an uncommon, under-reported, yet significant cause of acute or chronic gastrointestinal blood loss in the elderly. It accounts for about 4% of the nonvariceal upper GI bleeds, and diagnosis is established by the demonstration of characteristic watermelon stripes on upper GI endoscopy.Read More.
