Regional anesthesia (RA)-induced vasodilation increases the proportion of patients with vein anatomy suitable for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation. The functional outcomes of AVFs created with veins initially small for size on preoperative duplex ultrasound mapping ( ≤2.4 mm) that are recruited under RA have not been clearly defined. We aimed to evaluate freedom from revision or thrombosis, time to first cannulation, and reintervention rates of AVFs created with veins recruited after induction of RA.

Suprarenal abdominal aortic coarctation (SAAC) is a congenital midaortic syndrome that develops owing to a developmental anomaly in the fusion of the embryonic dorsal aortae. This condition is associated with severe hypertension, which is usually the indication for intervention. Open surgery is the primary treatment and it typically involves thoracoaortic bypass (TAB), and less commonly patch aortoplasty (PA). Bypass to the visceral vessels has also been performed in conjunction with TAB or PA. The majority undergoing intervention for SAAC are children and adolescents; therefore, the benefits of surgical intervention must ...

Authors: BaHammam AS, Almeneessier AS Abstract Previous studies have assessed the role of gender and menopause in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). It is well known that menopause is a major risk factor for OSA. However, analogous studies on obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS) are limited. Recent studies have suggested that OHS is more prevalent in postmenopausal women. Moreover, women with OHS seem to have excess comorbidities, including hypothyroidism, hypertension, pulmonary hypertension, and diabetes mellitus, compared to men. In the present perspective, we discuss recent data on the prevalence and comorbiditie...

Authors: Albertson TE, Chenoweth JA, Pearson SJ, Murin S Abstract Introduction: Asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS) is a disease phenotype that shares T helper lymphocyte cell Th1/neutrophilic/non-Type-2 Inflammation pathways thought to be key in COPD and Th2/eosinophilic/Type-2 inflammatory pathways of asthma. The pharmacology of treating ACOS is challenging in severe circumstances.Areas covered: This review evaluates the stepwise treatment of ACOS using pharmacological treatments used in both COPD and asthma. The most common medications involve the same inhalers used to treat COPD...

The objective of the study was to test whether β-blocker use is associated with susceptibility to COPD.Methods: A total of 301.542 new users of β-blockers and 1.000.633 new users of any other antihypertensive drugs aged 30-90 years without any history of COPD hospitalizations were included in the study and followed in the Danish National Patient Registry for incident admissions for COPD and COPD death between 1995 and 2015. Multiple adjusted cox regression models were used to examine the association between use of β-blockers and COPD hospitalization. Additionally, subgroup analyses based on underlying diseas...

AbstractPurposeComorbidities associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affect quality of life and increase mortality. Asthma –COPD overlap (ACO) may express a different profile of comorbidities compared to COPD alone. It is unclear how recent changes in GOLD recommendations affect the profile of comorbidities in COPD and ACO.MethodsEight hundred and thirty-four patients with COPD were recruited from 67 Hungarian secondary care outpatient clinics, 469 of them had ACO. Comorbidities were defined by respiratory specialists based on medical history, patient report, and medications. COPD grades were def...
