Impact of Aortic Aneurysms in Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Replacement: A Single Center Experience
ConclusionsIn our patient cohort, 9.5% of patients who underwent TAVR had concomitant aortic aneurysms. Patients with aortic aneurysms had similar incidence of vascular complications as well as in-hospital and 6-month MACE compared to those without.
Background: Sepsis is a leading cause of neonatal mortality globally. The home-based neonatal care (HBNC) field trial (1995–1998) in rural Gadchiroli demonstrated a reduction in the incidence of neonatal sepsis. The current study examines the trend of neonatal sepsis during the twenty-one years (1998–2019) following the trial’s completion. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study based on the HBNC program data in rural Gadchiroli, India, from April 1998 to March 2019. All live-born neonates who spent all or part of the neonatal period in the 39 study villages and received HBNC were el...
Researchers say men outnumber women in stroke therapy clinical trials, which means women may end up receiving less effective treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: In our patient cohort, 9.5% of patients who underwent TAVR had concomitant aortic aneurysms. Patients with aortic aneurysms had similar incidence of vascular complications as well as in-hospital and 6-month MACE compared to those without. PMID: 30595280 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, senescence of vascular cells promotes the development of age-related disorders, including heart failure, diabetes, and atherosclerotic diseases, while suppression of vascular cell senescence ameliorates phenotypic features of aging in various models. Recent findings have indicated that specific depletion of senescent cells reverses age-related changes. Although the biological networks contributing to maintenance of homeostasis are extremely complex, it seems reasonable to explore senolytic agents that can act on specific cellular components or tissues. Several clinical trials of senolytic agents are currentl...
In this study, cangrelor was discontinued 1-6 hours prior to surgery, while aspirin was continued throughout the perioperative period. Bridging with cangrelor did not increase major bleeds prior to surgery, though minor bleeds, mostly ecchymosis at venipuncture site, was higher. P2Y12 assay documented sufficient platelet inhibition corresponding to levels required for anti thrombotic effect . Cangrelor is awaiting approval and more large scale trials regarding the use of bridging are needed. Reference 1. Angiolillo DJ et al; BRIDGE Investigators. Bridging antiplatelet therapy with cangrelor in patients undergoing ...
