This study, involving 140 patients with T2DM following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), evaluated the efficacy of aspirin upon concomitant use of prasugrel (10 mg/d) or ticagrelor (90 mg/d). Platelet reactivity was assessed by value of ADP‐induced light transmittance aggregometry (LTA) and vasodilator‐stimulated phosphoprotein phosphorylation‐platelet reactivity index (VASP‐PRI) at baseline, 7 and 30 days after randomized P2Y12 inhibitor treatment. ResultsThe study showed a decreased platelet reactivity after use of P2Y12 inhibitors (both P  .05). As for intragroup measurements, wh...

Authors: Zhou X, Xue F, Wang H, Qiao Y, Liu G, Huang L, Li D, Wang S, Wang Q, Li L, Li R Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the quality of life (QOL) and factors affecting QOL in hemodialysis patients so as to improve QOL of dialysis patients and provide the basis for better clinical care. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed to assess the QOL and factors affecting QOL in hemodialysis patients. We recruited 125 patients who had been receiving hemodialysis for at least 2 years in the dialysis units of nine hospitals in Shanxi Province, China, and conducted a multi-center questionnaire survey between 1...

(Int J Gynaecol Obstet. 2017;138(1):84–88) Trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) is often discouraged because of increased risk of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. However, few studies have focused on TOLAC with a subgroup of women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which is known to complicate pregnancies, for example increased risk of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome. In the present study, authors assess rates of TOLAC and subsequent vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) among women with GDM and identify associated factors.

(Anesth Analg. 2017;124(3):879–886) Small studies have suggested that there is a difference in obstetric maternal morbidities between Asian American/Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and Caucasian women, including higher rates of gestational diabetes, peripartum hemorrhage, perineal lacerations, and infections. However, no large nationwide epidemiologic study regarding this issue exists. Therefore, the authors of the present study analyzed data from the National Inpatient Sample (NIS) and compared comorbidities, severe maternal conditions, peripartum complications, and mortality between AAPI and Caucasian women.

This study aimed to evaluate the predictors of delayed surgical intervention in ASDH patients who are initially managed conservatively. Methods: From January 2007 to December 2015, 842 patients diagnosed with ASDH were treated at our institution. Among them, 158 patients with convexity ASDH were initially treated conservatively. Patients were divided into a delayed surgery group and a conservative group. Demographic characteristics, past medication and medical histories, and radiological and laboratory data were collected by retrospective chart review. Independent risk factors were identified with univariate and multiv...

Conclusions Although KFTS kidneys have less favorable donor, graft, and recipient risk factors than NKAS kidneys, short-term graft and patient outcomes are acceptable. National schemes that identify and rapidly offer kidneys at high risk of discard may contribute to minimizing the unnecessary discard of organs.

Defenestration is apparently a word with two meanings. The second, a scientific term, is the removal or loss of fenestrations. Let it never be said that this is not a place of learning. What, one might ask, are fenestrations? This is another word adopted by the scientific community and given an additional meaning: it refers to a collection of small openings or pores in our biology. The particular small openings or pores that concern us today are those found in the blood vessels of the liver, one of the organs involved in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes. While we might tend to think of type 2 diabe...

I already posted that a PA makes more money in Southern Cal. But now I am looking at admissions. I looked at the Western University prospective students for both. The results are below. I can see why being a PA is better. Two years school vs 4. Your job is clinical and not pill pushing. PAs and nurses are taking over blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes clinics. Coumadin clinics have lost 70 percent of their volume due to direct thrombin inhibitors. Based on the data below, PA... Physician Assistant is better than Rph
