Introduction: Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) might protect against dementia by reducing future stroke risk and improving cerebral blood flow. Using linkage of randomised trial participants to electronic health records, we aimed to measure the long-term effect of CEA on stroke and on recorded dementia in ACST-1 (ISRCTN26156392).

Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice with implications on long-term outcomes. Metabolic disorders including diabetes mellitus and obesity are independent predictors of atrial fibrillation and present therapeutic targets to reduce both the incidence and duration burden of atrial fibrillation. The presence of pericardial fat in direct contact with cardiac structures, as well the subsequent release of proinflammatory cytokines, may play an important role in this connection. Atrial fibrillation is an independent predictor of cognitive impairment and dementia....

My sisters live out of the area, so they are limi...
