INTRODUCTION Sex differences are widespread in humans and other mammals. For example, the distribution of height or body size is shifted upwards in males relative to females, and sex differences are found in the immune and cardiovascular systems as well as in metabolism. However, little is known about how gene expression differs between the sexes in a broad range of mammalian tissues and species. A catalog of such sex-biased gene expression could help us understand phenotypic sex differences. As...

Abstract Background The HeartWare HVAD (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) is a continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) approved by the FDA in 2012 as a bridge to transplant in patients with end-stage left ventricular heart failure. The current inflow cannula has a smooth outer surface near the inflow edge and a sintered collar of titanium microspheres near the pump. A previous case series of HVAD patients bridged to transplant revealed thrombus on the outer surface of the inflow cannula ...

Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia (WM) is an indolent disorder that may not always require treatment. Among the indications for treatment is the co-existence of light chain (AL) amyloidosis,[1][1] reported to affect nearly 3% of patients.[2][2] In a multicenter study of 72 individuals with IgM-
We all have a treasure trove of things—squirreled away in knick-knack drawers or long-forgotten boxes in the basement, storage lockers, and parents’ homes. Things we tell ourselves will someday have value if we just wait long enough. Every pathology department has things too—the glass slides and paraffin blocks of specimens long since diagnosed and discarded, all tucked away in the far recesses of hospitals and storage warehouses, waiting for a time to reach their full potential. A select few of...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the prevalence of monoclonal gammopathy (MG) in patients with wild-type transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTRwt) (formerly known as senile amyloidosis). Patients and Methods We retrospectively analyzed the serum protein electrophoresis and serum immunofixation results, free light chain (FLC) levels, and renal function of 113 consecutive patients with ATTRwt seen at the Brigham and Women's Hospital's Cardiac Amyloidosis Program between February 21, 2006, and November 9, 2...
