Survival of patients with chronic heart failure in the community: a systematic review and meta-analysis protocol

DiscussionThis systematic review will provide up to date evidence on the current survival rates and prognostic indicators for patients with chronic HF. We will put this into historical perspective, comparing outcomes across time to help understand the impact of advances in evidence-based treatment on average survival. This information is important in facilitating informed decision-making for patients and health professionals as well as highlighting areas to focus resources and improve public health planning.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO 2017CRD42017075680

Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is an effective treatment for symptomatic osteoarthritis after failed nonsurgical therapies. Minimizing perioperative complications is critical for faster recovery and shorter hospital stay. The primary aim of this study was to identify predictors of perioperative major complications (MC) and mortality after THA, and to use these predictors to develop a risk scoring system. Methods: The 2006-2016 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database was queried for adult patients who underwent primary elective THA performed under general or neuraxial anesthesia. Univar...

AbstractAimsFew studies describe recent changes in the prevalence, management, and outcomes of cardiogenic shock (CS) patients complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in the era of widespread use of invasive strategies. The aim of the present study was to analyse trends observed in CS complicating AMI over the past 10  years, focusing on the timing of CS occurrence (i.e. primary CS, CS on admission vs. secondary CS, CS developed subsequently during hospitalization).Methods and resultsThree nationwide French registries conducted and designed to evaluate AMI management and outcomes in ‘real‐life’ ...

ConclusionIn three large MRA RCTs, women were substantially different from men with regard to their clinical features and event rates. Nonetheless, this meta ‐analysis supports a consistent and beneficial MRA effect regardless of sex.

Authors: Chiba Y, Fukushima A, Nakao M, Kobayashi Y, Ishigaki T, Tenma T, Kamiya K, Shingu Y, Ooka T, Matsui Y, Anzai T Abstract A 23-year-old man had progressive muscle weakness and Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) due to a LMNA (lamin A/C) mutation. Congestive heart failure diagnosed at 19 years of age. Maximal drug treatment/cardiac resynchronization failed to improve the cardiac function. He was therefore hospitalized due to heart failure. Despite extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, he developed severe right heart dysfunction and died (multiple organ failure). A cardiac lesion's presence determines the...
