Objective: Our objective was to identify the postoperative risk associated with different timing intervals of repair. Background: Timing of carotid intervention in poststroke patients is widely debated with the scales balanced between increased periprocedural risk and recurrent neurologic event. National database reviews show increased risk to patients treated within the first 2 days of a neurologic event compared to those treated after 6 days. Methods: Utilizing Vascular Quality Initiative data, all carotid interventions performed on stroke patients between the years 2012 and 2017 were queried. Patients were then ...

LegendreAimsMaximal aerobic capacity (VO2 max) has already been reported in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). We postulate CPET parameters does not reflect cardiac performance in these patients. We compared VO2 max and maximal systemic stroke volume (SV max) in a population of children with repaired CHD. Impedance cardiography is considered accurate for stroke volume (SV) measurement during exercise testing.Materials and methodsVO2 max and SV max (...

Since the left atrial appendage (LAA) was identified as the thromboembolic source in at least 90% of nonvalvular atrial fibrillation –related strokes,1 excluding this appendage has been the subject of a seemingly endless number of clinical trials, surgical techniques, and occlusive devices. Inoue and Suematsu2 contribute a technical corollary in exploiting the surgical access afforded by video-assisted thoracoscopic left lobect omy to perform concomitant epicardial occlusion of the LAA for patients with atrial fibrillation.

ConclusionsIn patients with T2D and persistent microalbuminuria, u-KIM-1, but not u-NGAL, was an independent risk factor for decline in eGFR, CVE and all-cause mortality, and contributed significant discrimination for all-cause mortality, beyond traditional risk factors.

Conclusion: No significant difference was observed by comparing patients and controls. In this study, no association was found between the presence of the evaluated polymorphisms and the occurrence of thrombotic events.RESUMO Introdu ção: A trombose arterial é considerada uma doença multifatorial, resultante da interação de fatores de risco genéticos e adquiridos. Objetivos: O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a presença dos polimorfismos nos genes do inibidor da ativação do plasminogênio tipo 1 (PAI-1) e da apoli poproteína E (ApoE), bem...
