The effects of a community-based walking program on walking ability and fall-related self-efficacy of chronic stroke patients - Lee JM, Moon HH, Lee SK, Lee HL, Park YJ.

The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of community-based walking training (CWT) on the walking ability and fall-related self-efficacy of chronic stroke patients and compare the effects of CWT to the conventional walking programs in stro...

CONCLUSIONS: Although diabetic status did not significantly interfere with treatment effects of guided DAPT de-escalation, our results suggest that this approach might be safe and effective in non-diabetic patients, whilst further investigation is definitely warranted in diabetic patients.

Fadouloglou, Abdul Rauf Siddiqi, Yang ZhangAbstractThe human soluble Guanylate Cyclase (hsGC) is a heterodimeric heme-containing enzyme which regulates many important physiological processes. In eukaryotes, hsGC is the only known receptor for nitric oxide (NO) signaling. Improper NO signaling results in various disease conditions such as neurodegeneration, hypertension, stroke and erectile dysfunction. To understand the mechanisms of these diseases, structure determinat...

This article reviews relationships between mild to moderate essential hypertension and chronic kidney disease with a focus on the role of APOL1 in development of hypertension. Available evidence strongly supports that APOL1 renal-risk variants associate with glomerulosclerosis in African Americans, which then causes secondary hypertension, not with essential hypertension per se.

AbstractIntroductionAtherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and Framingham risk scores (FRS) are used to calculate 10-year risk of coronary death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, or fatal/nonfatal stroke. Our goal is to evaluate the association between preoperative cardiovascular risk and weight loss.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed bariatric surgeries from 2010 to 2016. Patients who met criteria for calculating 10-year ASCVD score and FRS were included. Data collected included baseline demographics, perioperative parameters, and postoperative outcomes at 12  months. Simple linear regression and multiple line...

This study examines the effects of the reform on the rate of death and readmissions occurring within 60 days of hospitalization. We use aggregated municipal data for years 2009, 2010, 2012–2014 (N = 1646) for Norwegian patients (age 18+) hospitalized in the same years for COPD/asthma, heart failure, hip fracture, and stroke. We stratify our analyses of the municipal data by these patient groups. Our linear regression models test for moderated (interaction) effects whereby associations between the reform and the rate of death and readmissions vary by whether or not patients were classified as ready for disch...

We describe a case of a 55-year-old man who presented with right internal carotid artery dissection and deviation to the left of the protruded tongue. The direction of the deviation of the protruded tongue was unexpected in this patient, because if the XII nerve palsy was due to mass effect related to the intramural hematoma of the dissected artery, a deviation to the right should have happened. Anyway, a subsequent magnetic resonance revealed also an acute ischemic lesion in the right tongue area in the primary motor cortex of the patient, providing a rare, but a fitting neuroanatomical explanation of the deviation and al...
