    Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2019; 65(9):1216-1222Lima TG, Benevides FLN, … Quidute ARP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Different pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies are available for the treatment of iron overload and must be used according to etiology and patient compliance. Therapeutic phlebotomy is the basis for the treatment of hereditary hemochromatosis. Transfusional overload patients and those who cannot tolerate phlebotomy need iron chelators.Advances in the understanding of iron overload have lead to great advances in therapies and new pharmacological targets. Research has lead to better compliance with the use of oral chelators and less toxic drugs.

  • Clinical Spectrum and Complications of Polycythemia, in Patients presenting at Tertiary Care Centre at Goa. [Journal Article]
    J Assoc Physicians India 2019; 67(10):20-24Nevrekar R, Pai A, Khandeparkar A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study revealed that patients with polycythemia Vera are more symptomatic and have a higher requirement of phlebotomy and a higher thrombotic tendency (arterial being more common than venous) as compared to the secondary polycythemia owing to a higher hyperviscocity in the former. Leukocytosis and JAK 2 617F positivity were found to be important predictors of thrombotic risk. Hypertension was found to be frequently associated with Vera as well as in secondary causes due to OSA.
