Transcatheter aortic valve replacement in Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease: An Insight
Summary: As per the current scenario, role of Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVI) is controversial in bicuspid aortic valve stenosis. All the randomized clinical trials comparing outcomes of TAVI with surgery till date, have excluded patients with bicuspid aortic valve. Some of the observational studies have reported outcomes of TAVI in bicuspid aortic valve stenosis patients who are not surgical candidate. The recent advances in TAVI and its expansion into intermediate groups, which includes younger age groups sparks a debate on the efficacy and safety of TAVI in Bicsuspid aortic valve (BAV). The purpose of the present article is to review the available literature regarding the feasibility, safety and outcomes of TAVI in bicuspid aortic valve stenosis.

Metformin Inhibits Growth of Breast Cancer Cell T47D through Decreasing Expression of Protein P53, BCL2 and Cyclin D1
Summary: Breast cancer is a disease that afflicts women only 0.5 to 1 % are male breast cancers.Breast cancer has several variants and requires a different therapeutic approach, and until now the therapy has not been satisfactory due to the emergence of resistance. Metformin as the main choice drug type 2 diabetes mellitus which is known to have a cytotoxic effect for breast cancer. This study aimed to analyze metformin cytotoxic mechanisms covering the cell cycle , apoptosis, expression of p53, bcl-2 and cyclin D1 T47D cells which exposed to metformin HCl. The study was conducted invitro on T47D breast cancer cells which exposed to metformin concentrations of 1738.2 µg / mL and 3476.4 µg / mL and doxorubicin concentrations of 0.1µg / mL and 0.2µg / mL for 24 hours. Cell cycle testing and apoptosis using the flowsitometry method and expression test of p53 protein, bcl-2 dancycline D1 in T47D cells with immunocytochemistry. Data was analyzed by one way Anova with Bonferroni's advanced test. The results showed that metformin inhibited the G0-G1 phase of the T47D cell cycle, triggered T47D cell apoptosis, significantly reduced p53, bcl-2 and cyclin D1 protein expression (p <0.05). Conclusion of the study, metformin inhibits T47D cells through inhibition of the cell cycle G0-G1 phase, reducing protein expression p53, bcl-2 and cyclin D1.

Cadaveric Study of Lung Anatomy: A Surgical Overview
Summary: Thorough knowledge of variations in lung anatomy is of prime significance during surgical procedures of lungs. Arrangement of structures in lung hilum act as a guide in performing such procedures. Normal pattern of arrangement of hilar structures in right lung is eparterial bronchus, pulmonary artery, hyparterial bronchus and pulmonary veins from above downwards. In left lung it is pulmonary artery, principal bronchus and pulmonary vein from above downwards. Arrangement of hilar structures from anterior to posterior in both lungs is pulmonary vein, pulmonary artery and principal bronchus.
