Objective null Systemic inflammatory response and pro-coagulator factors are critical in acute pulmonary embolism. Recently, there is increasing evidence that the multi-inflammatory index (MII) may be prognostic in many clinical situations. The study investigated whether MII-1 and MII-2 can distinguish massive (MPE) and non-massive pulmonary embolism (NMPE). null Methods null A total of 146 patients (73 MPE and 73 NMPE) were included in the study that was designed as a retrospective cross-sectional analysis. Following haemogram analysis, MII-1 (platelet-to-lymphocyte x CRP) and MII-2 (neutrophil-to-lymphocyte x CRP) were calculated manually. null Results null MII-1 and 2 showed a positive significant correlation with PLR and NLR, moderate positive correlation with CPR, and weak positive correlation with PAP (P null null .05). null Conclusion null Although MII-1 and MII-2 are simple, cheap, and easy indexes to calculate, they showed a strong ability to distinguish MPE and NMPE compared with the previously studied classical inflammatory indexes.

: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potentially serious complication after total knee replacement (TKR), and recent guideline recommends thromboprophylaxis for VTE after TKR. The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has emerged as a simple and new prognostic biomarker for several cardiovascular diseases. This study was performed to investigate the precise incidence of postoperative VTE and the role of NLR for predicting VTE in patients receiving thromboprophylaxis after TKR. We retrospectively enro...
Aims:We created a new index (Multi Inflammatory Index, MII) composed of an inflammatory index [neutrophil-to lymphocyte-ratio (NLR): MII-1; platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR): MII-2; or systemic im...

BACKGROUND This retrospective study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and albumin for 30-day mortality in patients with postoperative acute pulmonary embolism (PAPE). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 101 patients with PAPE admitted from September 1, 2012, to March 31, 2019. The characteristics, surgical information, admission examination data and mortality within 30鈥塪ays after PAPE were obtained from our electronic med...

BACKGROUND: Risk factors affecting the prognosis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in adults were investigated. The aim was to identify new predictors for ARDS patient prognosis, including those with clinical, pathophysiological, and atypical immunodeficiency. METHODS: ARDS patients were retrospectively included. The patients were grouped and analysed according to different oxygenation index grades and prognosis, and factors influencing prognosis and survival were examined. Adolescen...
Background The systemic immune-inflammation index based on peripheral neutrophil, lymphocyte, and platelet counts has shown a prognostic impact in several malignancies. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic role of systemic immune-inflammation index in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma undergoing resection.

Guidelines summarize and evaluate available evidence with the aim of assisting health professionals in proposing the best management strategies for an individual patient with a given condition. Guidelines and their recommendations should facilitate decision making of health professionals in their daily practice. However, the final decisions concerning an individual patient must be made by the responsible health professional(s) in consultation with the patient and caregiver as appropriate.
Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of a new inflammatory index (Colon Inflammatory Index [CII]) as a predictor of prognosis and treatment efficacy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) enrolled in the prospective multicenter randomized ITACa (Italian Trial in Advanced Colorectal Cancer) trial to receive first-line chemotherapy (CT)+ bevacizumab or CT alone. Patients and methods: Between November 14, 2007 and March 6, 2012, 276 patients diagnosed with CRC were a...

Leukocyte migration is a crucial process in both homeostatic and inflammatory conditions. The spatiotemporal distribution of immune cells is balanced between processes of cellular mobilization into the bloodstream, their adhesion to vascular beds and trafficking into tissues. Systemic regulation of leukocyte mobility is achieved by different signals including neuronal and hormonal cues, of which the catecholamines and glucocorticoids have been most extensively studied. These hormones are often a...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the level of platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE) according to high and low risk for early mortality based on simplified Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (sPESI). In addition, it was investigated the relationship between PLR and NLR with systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP), cardiac markers, disease severity and hospital, 1th month, 3th month and 3-month...

: Surgical pulmonary embolectomy and pulmonary thromboendarterectomy are well-established treatment strategies for patients with acute and chronic pulmonary embolism, respectively. For both procedures, techniques and outcomes have evolved considerably over the past decades. Patients with massive and submassive acute pulmonary embolism are at risk for rapid decline owing to right ventricular failure and shock. When thrombus is proximal, embolectomy can rapidly restore cardiac function. Chronic th...
