FRIDAY, Aug. 11, 2017 -- Adults who've been hospitalized with pneumonia or sepsis have a higher risk of heart disease, a new European study reports. Researchers examined data from nearly 237,000 Swedish men. They were followed from age 18 into...

This study aimed to assess the effects of SAI on patient mortality and functional outcome at 3  months after stroke onset. We retrospectively analyzed 809 consecutive patients with acute stroke (517 men and 292 women; median age, 72 years) who were admitted to our department between September 2014 and June 2016. SAI was defined as an infection diagnosed during the hospitalization period. Po or outcome was defined as a modified Rankin Scale (mRS) score of 3–5 or death (mRS score of 6). The effect of SAI on functional outcome was evaluated using a multivariate logistic regression analysis. SAI occurred in 169...

Conclusions: 1.During the first year after hospital discharge 8% of our patients died. 2.PSI and SCAP were significantly associated with 1-year mortality after hospital discharge of patients with PBCAP. 3.In our series age and comorbid conditions were the main contributors to long- term mortality.

Background: High morbidity and mortality due to community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is seen in children under 5-years of age in India. Besides identified risk factors for CAP there may be phenotype–genotype association with cytokines, resulting in enhanced inflammatory response resulting in adverse outcome (AO) i.e. complications or death.Aim: To assess the association of IL-1RA gene polymorphism on serum levels of IL-1RA and with AO in children aged hospitalized for severe CAP.Method: Prospective study conducted in a tertiary care teaching hospital after obtaining ethical approval. Included were children between 2 to...

Conclusion: NB is a safe modality to sample lung lesions in patients with comorbidities and a poor PS. Our results show low diagnostic efficacy for these challenging cases. Negative NB should therefore be followed by further investigations.

We describe comorbidity, analytical, functional and radiological data and mortality.Results: We study 31 patients, 11 males, age of 70 ± 9.4 years, 18/31 were former or smokers. RA was diagnosed 7,9 ± 8,6 years before the ILD. ILD was diagnosed before RA in 10%. The BMI was 27 ± 4. Rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-ccp were positive in 86% (25/29) and 77% (20/26) with median values of 280 ± 376 and 751 ± 821. One patient had both antibodies negative. CRP and the ESR median values were 2.5 ± 6.6 and 42 ± 23, respectively. Concomitant diseases were, 19/31 (61%) hypertension, 5/3...

Authors: Levine RS, Salemi JL, Mejia de Grubb MC, Gittner LS, Langston MA, Husaini BA, Rust G, Hennekens CH Abstract OBJECTIVE: Describe trends in non-Hispanic black infant mortality (IM) in the New York City (NYC) counties of Bronx, Kings, Queens, and Manhattan and correlations with gun-related assault mortality. METHODS: Linked Birth/Infant Death data (1999-2013) and Compressed Mortality data at ages 1 to ≥85 years (1999-2013). NYC and United States (US) Census data for income inequality and poverty. Pearson coefficients were used to describe correlations of IM with gun-related assault mortality and other ...

AbstractLittle is known about the causes and risks of non-postoperative pericardial effusion (PCE) in pediatric patients. We sought to assess the diagnoses most frequently associated with admissions for PCE, and to determine if certain conditions were associated with higher in-hospital mortality and rates of readmission. Nationally distributed data from 44 pediatric hospitals in the 2004 –2015 Pediatric Health Information System database were used to identify patients with hospital admissions for International Classification of Disease, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes for PCE and/or cardiac tamponade. Children with cong...
