Abstract 138: Impact of Depressive Disorder on Access to Care and Quality of Care in Veterans With Cardiovascular Disease Session Title: Poster Session II

Background: Depressive disorders have been independently associated with increased morbidity and mortality in adults with cardiovascular disease (CVD). We sought to assess the association between depressive disorder and access to care and quality of care among U.S. veterans with CVD.Methods: The 2013 Centers for Disease Control’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey was utilized to identify a cohort of 13,126 veterans with CVD. Presence of CVD was noted with a single affirmative response to the following questions: "Has a health care professional ever told you that you had any of the following:" (1) a heart attack or myocardial infarction, (2) angina or coronary heart disease, (3) a stroke? Access to care variables included report of financial barriers to medical care and/or prescription drug costs and report of delay in receiving medical care. Quality of care variables included annual blood cholesterol check, blood sugar testing, flu shot administration, antihypertensive use, and aspirin use.Results: Among 13,126 veterans studied, a total of 2,889 (22%) adults had a depressive disorder while 10,237 (78%) did not. Veterans with a depressive disorder tended to be younger (p

In conclusion, high baPWV accompanied by hypertension could increase the risk of cardio-cerebrovascular events. The predictive value of baPWV combined with BP on cardio-cerebrovascular events is superior compared with that of either baPWV or BP alone. PMID: 31807146 [PubMed]

All individuals participated in the measurement of static postural control under two conditions: the double-leg stance with eyes open (EO) and eyes closed (EC). The center of pressure variables was obtained. mSEBT was used for dynamic postur...

In the present study, we report that wogonin nanoparticles (Wog np) protect Isoproterenol (ISO) induced Myocardial Infarction (MI) rats. Nanoparticles of sizes less than 200 nm with spherical shape were prepared using Polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) respectively as polymer and stabilizer. Male Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups. Group 1 as a control group a...

Authors: Schulte C, Zeller T Abstract Cardiovascular (CV) risk assessment is based on the utilization of risk scores, enabling clinicians to estimate an individual's risk to develop CV pathologies and events. Such risk scores comprise classic CV risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, hypertension, and blood cholesterol levels. Recently, other CV biomarkers such as cardiac troponins have been suggested and evaluated as alternative biomarkers not only in the acute diagnostic setting of myocardial infarction, but also as markers for risk stratification in the general population. In this review, we summarize the curre...
