Impact of Achieved Blood Pressure on First Stroke in Uncomplicated Grade 1 Hypertension Cardiovascular Surgery

BackgroundWe aimed to test the impact of achieved blood pressure (BP) on first stroke among patients with grade 1 hypertension and without cardiovascular diseases in the China Stroke Primary Prevention Trial.Methods and ResultsA total of 3187 patients with uncomplicated grade 1 hypertension were included. The risk of outcomes was assessed according to: (1) the proportion of visits in which BP was reduced to

Myiasis is a disease caused by the invasion of tissues by the larvae of flies. Herein, we present 2 cases of this disease. Case 1: a 47-year-old male patient with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, malnutrition, and mental disorders was hospitalized for sequelae of stroke. The intraoral examination revealed poor hygiene and the presence of an ulcerated lesion with a whitish border in the left upper lip mucosa showing larvae with wriggling movement. Case 2: an 11-year-old male patient diagnosed with cerebral palsy and West syndrome.

This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

AbstractAimsData regarding the optimal systolic blood pressure (SBP) and heart rate (HR) for coronary artery disease (CAD) patients with hypertension and a history of heart failure (HF) are limited. Accordingly, using data from a large clinical trial, we investigated the association between SBP and heart rate and subsequent adverse outcomes in CAD patients with a history of HF, and we aimed to better understand how pre ‐existing HF impacts outcomes among patients with CAD.Methods and resultsAmong 22 576 CAD patients enrolled in the INternational VErapamil SR ‐Trandolapril STudy (INVEST), 1256 were identified with a his...

Right now, one in 12 children and adolescents in the US are severely obese. If that isn’t startling enough, consider this: among 12-to-15-year-olds, that number jumps to one in 10 — and among 16-to-19-year-olds, it is one in seven. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the best hope for many of these youths may be bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is surgery that helps with weight loss by making the stomach smaller and making other changes in the digestive system. It’s jarring to think about doing irreversible surgery on an adolescent — or a child, as the AAP discourages age limi...

Conclusions Preoperative vitamin D was not associated with a composite of postoperative 30-day cardiac outcomes. However, there was a significant association between vitamin D deficiency and a composite of infectious complications and decreased kidney function. While renal effects were not clinically meaningful, the effect of vitamin D supplementation on infectious complications requires further study.

AliveCor is close to our hearts. Literally. David Albert, the co-founder of the company, started experimenting with handheld, wireless ECG devices in the late 90s. Approximately 10 years later we tried out their FDA-cleared, medical grade gadget. It was a truly inspiring moment. Needless to say, we’ve been keeping track of their journey ever since. In our eyes Kardia is the textbook example of technology shaping health care, empowering and supporting not only e-patients, but medical professionals as well. So, let’s take a look at their newest creation, the KardiaMobile6L! Why did the chicken cross the ro...

We thank Wang et al. for their comments and for bringing forward the challenges in managing care of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) and stroke. We acknowledge multiple possible mechanisms of stroke in patients with PH, and we highlighted them in our work, including paradoxical emboli and atrial fibrillation [1]. However, polycythemia (increased red cells) or other myeloproliferative disorders are considered to be a cause and not a consequence of PH [2,3]. In mice models, Sala et al. have showed that chronic hypoxia could lead to both PH and polycythemia [4].
