This article aims to compare medication adherence and persistence between warfarin and direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and identify reported adherence barriers. As with other chronic illness, medication nonadherence continues to be a problem and appropriate adherence to long-term anticoagulation therapy is needed to improve patient health outcomes and to reduce health expenditure associated with hospitalizations and emergency visits. Areas covered: Warfarin and DOACs such as apixaban, rivaroxaban, edoxaban, and dabigatran have demonstrated effectiveness in the management of atrial fibrillation (AF), deep vein thrombosis...

ConclusionsThe presented cases indicated that important complications, such as intraventricular thrombus and severe mitral regurgitation, are associated with takotsubo cardiomyopathy in the acute phase. Because these complications are risk factors for developing a thromboembolic event or heart failure and/or pulmonary edema, timely and accurate identification of these complications is critical to achieving optimal clinical outcomes in patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy.

Authors: Zhong H, Wang Y, Wang Y, Wang B Abstract Effect and clinical value in general anesthesia and combined spinal-epidural anesthesia in elderly patients undergoing hip arthroplasty were compared. One hundred and six patients with hip arthroplasty in the Affiliated Nanhua Hospital, University of South China from May 2013 to July 2015 were selected as the research subjects, including 50 patients in the study group who received combined spinal-epidural anesthesia by ondansetron hydrochloride tablets combined with spinal-epidural puncture kit, and 56 patients in the control group who received general anesthesia by...

Conclusion. The rates, causes, and risk factors of readmission after ACDF and PCF have been identified. There is variation in published data regarding the incidence and risk factors for readmission after cervical fusion; however, majority of readmissions occur due to medical complications and systemic infection. Level of Evidence: 3

AbstractThe concept of a pulmonary embolism response team (PERT) is multidisciplinary, with the hope that it may positively impact patient care, hospital efficiency, and outcomes in the treatment of patients with intermediate and high risk pulmonary embolism (PE). Clinical characteristics of a baseline population of patients presenting with submassive and massive PE to URMC between 2014 and 2016 were examined (n  = 159). We compared this baseline population before implementation of a PERT to a similar population of patients at 3-month periods, and then as a group at 18 months after PERT implementation (n...

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that parasite load together with malarial anemia, rather than alveolar leakage, might contribute to shortened survival in PbNK65-infected Vwf-/- mice. VWF deficiency is associated with early reticulocytosis following PbNK65 infection, which potentially explains the increase in parasite load. This article is protected by copyright.

This study aimed to assess the outcomes of surgical embolectomy and to clarify the sustained long-term effects of surgery by comparing preoperative, postoperative, and long-term follow-up echocardiography outcomes. Of 22 survivors, 21 were followed up for a mean (median) period of 6.8±5.4 years (4.2 years). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 27 surgical embolectomy cases for massive or submassive acute PTE from 2003 to 2016. Immediate and long-term follow-up outcomes of surgical embolectomy were assessed on the basis of 30-day mortality, long-term mortality, postoperative complications, right ventricular systo...
