AbstractPurpose of ReviewWith increasing use of prosthetic valves to treat degenerative valvular heart disease (VHD) in an aging population, the incidence and adverse consequences of paravalvular leaks (PVL) are better recognized. The present work aims to provide a cohesive review of the available literature in order to better guide the evaluation and management of PVL.Recent FindingsDespite gains in operator experience and design innovation, significant PVL remains a significant complication that may present with congestive heart failure and/or hemolytic anemia. To date, clear consensus or guidelines on the evaluation and...
Conclusion(s): Machine learning methods can be used to predict the development of sepsis after appendectomy with moderate accuracy. Such predictive modeling has potential to ultimately allow for preoperative recognition of patients at risk for developing postoperative sepsis after appendectomy thus facilitating early intervention and reducing morbidity.
(Penn State) A large, international study of COVID-19 patients confirmed that cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, stroke and cancer can increase a patient's risk of dying from the virus.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a very intriguing heritable disease, definied as left ventricular hypertrophy in the absence of a secondary cause. The heterogenity in phenotypic expression makes treatment of patients very challenging. Fortunately, most patients have a benign prognosis, however in a subset of patients the clinical outcome is less favourable as patients present with symptoms of congestive heart failure or sudden cardiac death . Symptoms are often related to left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction.
AbstractAimsRheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic inflammatory autoimmune disorder that not only affects peripheral joints but also increases the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality. Heart failure (HF) appears to be one of the most important contributors to the excess mortality risk among patients with RA. We assessed the incidence of HF in patients with RA compared with age ‐matched and sex‐matched non‐RA subjects, after accounting for traditional cardiovascular risk factors and clinical ischemic heart disease.Methods and resultsWe performed an aggregate analysis on three studies of RA patients hav...
How Long Can You Live with Congestive Heart Failure?
CONCLUSIONS: Hispanics presented at higher rates than average for our population but outcomes among Hispanic patients with Covid-19 were similar to Caucasian patients. PMID: 33015939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Our data suggest that screening of the contractile defaults of the base of the heart by regional 2D strain echocardiography is useful to detect subclinical myocardial dysfunction prior to the development of delayed anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy in pediatric onco-cardiology.
ConclusionsThere is a large difference for readmission rates depending on the complexity of the procedure. Few studies report unplanned readmission rates in esthetic surgery and general free tissue transfer. Whereas readmissions after head and neck reconstruction are well-evaluated, risk factors for other reconstructive surgeries are poorly reported. Closer follow-up visits and outpatient resources could decrease readmission rates.Level of Evidence: Not ratable.
Heart failure is one of the most common causes of readmission in elderly. The purpose of this analysis was to determine the temporal trends in acute heart failure admissions.
