ConclusionsTAR in octogenarians with COPD and/or malignancy showed higher mortality rates; d-TEVAR is more appropriate in these situations. The prevention of perioperative stroke, which is related with poor prognosis in both the groups, is critical.

In readinglast year's RSNA report, I was struck with just how little has changed.Here I am this year, 2017, and here's how I looked at RSNA 2016:A little grayer, perhaps a pound or two more. But otherwise same ol'Dalai. And same ol'RSNA. I even manned the RAD-AID booth again:Yes, I tied the bow-tie all by myself.This is a model housed at the Bayer booth of the airship RAD-AID hopes to use to bring imaging to underserved areas; I think the official rendering is much more impressive, and maybe even a little, well,buxom:I'm still lobbying for a seat on the first flight. Did I saybuxom? I meanthandsome!I did attend the requisi...

We examined trends in resource use and patient characteristics over the study period. RESULTS: There were 136 208 admissions to general internal medicine involving 88 121 unique patients over the study period. General internal medicine admissions accounted for 38.8% of all admissions from the emergency department and 23.7% of all hospital bed-days. Over the study period, the number of admissions to general internal medicine increased by 32.4%; there was no meaningful change in the median length of stay or cost per hospital stay. The median patient age was 73 (interquartile range [IQR] 57-84) years, and the median ...

Objective: To compare clinical features and short term hospital outcome in COPD patients with and without heart failure.Methods: This was a prospective cohort study among COPD patients admitted to tertiary care hospital with and without heart failure (HF), who were followed till their hospital outcome. Comparison of presenting clinical features and outcome were documented on a structured proforma. Patients with chronic kidney or liver disease, cancer, pace- maker, pneumothorax, pneumonia, Implantable- defibrillator, stroke, dementia were excluded to eliminate bias.Results: Total of 60 COPD patients with HF ( group 1) and 8...

We examined associations between mortality and accelerometer-measured PA using age-relevant intensity cutpoints in older women of various ethnicities. The results support the hypothesis that higher levels of accelerometer-measured PA, even when below the moderate-intensity threshold recommended in current guidelines, are associated with lower all-cause and CVD mortality in women aged 63 to 99. Our findings expand on previous studies showing that higher self-reported PA reduces mortality in adults aged 60 and older, specifically in older women, and at less than recommended amounts. Moreover, our findings challenge th...

Conclusions: Lag 0–2 OPDTT was associated with ED visits for multiple cardiorespiratory outcomes, providing support for the utility of OPDTT as a measure of fine particle toxicity. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1545 Received: 23 December 2016 Revised: 4 August 2017 Accepted: 12 August 2017 Published: 26 October 2017 Please address correspondence to J.Y.

Anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation (AF) secondary to acute coronary syndrome, acute pulmonary disease or sepsis may not prevent stroke, but may increase risk of bleeding, says an new study published in JACC Clinical Electrophysiology [1]. The authors retrospectively evaluated a cohort of over 2300 patients aged 65 years or more who were hospitalized with acute coronary syndrome, acute pulmonary disease which included worsening of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, influenza, pulmonary embolism and pleural effusion or sepsis associated with new onset AF during admission. Over a three year follow...
