A risk prediction model for renal damage in a hypertensive Chinese Han population.

A risk prediction model for renal damage in a hypertensive Chinese Han population. Clin Exp Hypertens. 2018 Oct 09;:1-6 Authors: Lin J, Xu R, Yun L, Hou Y, Li C, Lian Y, Zheng F Abstract Backgroud: While numerous risk factors for renal damage in the hypertensive population have been reported, there is no single prediction model. The purpose of this study was to develop a model to comprehensively evaluate renal damage risk among hypertensive patients. Methods: We analyzed the data of 582 Chinese hypertensive patients from 1 January 2013 to 30 June 2016. Basic patient information was collected along with laboratory test results. According to the albumin-to-creatinine ratio, the subjects were divided into a hypertension with renal damage group and a hypertension without renal damage group. The prediction model was established by logistic regression based on principal component analysis, and the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was used to evaluate the predictive performance of the model. RESULTS:  There are 11 indicators have statistically significant difference between the two groups (P

This study sought to analyze the sex differences in 30-day, 1-year, and long-term net adverse clinical events (NACEs) in Chinese adult patients with STEMI after PCI. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed 1920 consecutive STEMI patients (age ≤60 years) treated with PCI from January 01, 2006, to December 31, 2012. A propensity score analysis between males and females was performed to adjust for differences in baseline characteristics and comorbidities. The primary endpoint was the incidence of 3-year NACE. Survival curves were constructed with Kaplan-Meier estimates and compared by log-rank tests between the t...

Conclusions: In this longitudinal sample of older men, the findings supported the hypothesis that long-term PM2.5 exposure negatively affects renal function and increases renal function decline.
