Anemia Is a Risk Factor of New Intraoperative Hemorrhagic Stroke During Valve Surgery for Endocarditis.

CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative hemorrhagic stroke was not rare, and ectopic hemorrhagic stroke, associated with preoperative anemia, was more prevalent than hemorrhagic transformation of existing cerebral lesions. PMID: 25979239 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: As reimbursement for emergency medicine in Germany was recently rearranged, quality benchmarking has gained incremental importance. Mandatory joint quality measurement in both concepts ensuring gap analysis and process improvement is encouraged. PMID: 31970463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Goeder D, Oberhoffer R Abstract Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Apart from a few exceptions heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial occlusive disease first occur in later adulthood. The cornerstone for these diseases, however, is already laid by accelerated vascular aging in childhood. Apart from pediatric medical preventive check-ups, the medical care of the parents should also be a reason for taking action. A detailed family history enables many conclusions to be drawn about the cardiovascular risk of the next generation This requires targeted diagn...

Our aim was to compare mortality and procedure-related complications after TAVI in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on dialysis versus those without.Metho...

ConclusionAbout two third of the patients had poor treatment outcome. Educational status and mean length of hospital stays were independent predictors of poor treatment out-comes. An emergency care setup capable of early patient evaluation, identification and management of stroke complications is crucial to overcome early stroke related mortality.

Conclusions: The relationship between LDH and in-hospital mortality in AAD patients is nonlinear. LDH was positively related with in-hospital mortality when LDH is more than 557. PMID: 31969993 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: Low EPA/AA ratio at baseline and treatment without statins could predict mortality, recurrent ischemic stroke, cardiovascular and peripheral artery diseases, and hemorrhagic stroke among patients with acute ischemic stroke. The combination of baseline EPA/AA ratio and statin therapy could be critical in predicting the long-term prognosis of ischemic stroke patients. PMID: 31969533 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
