The complex interaction between atrial fibrillation and heart failure in elderly patients.

In conclusion, elderly patients simultaneously presenting problems of cardiac function and arrhythmia are an important challenge for geriatric medicine, and request important efforts to improve their functional profile and prognosis. PMID: 31162487 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionThis study reports significant variability in sensory processing among children with DCD, ADHD and co-occurring symptoms using a population-based sample. These differences can contribute to understand how neurological and social factors correlates across diagnoses.

ConclusionAlthough we know mathematical abilities in WS are impaired, this area is under-researched and there is a lack of longitudinal studies that provide insight into the cognitive mechanisms that underpin mathematical development in WS. Therefore, there is a lack of an evidence-base to inform interventions or educational practice.

AbstractAl Absi and colleagues report their early results of the Fontan procedure in 87 consecutive patients between August 2008 and July 2017 in a tertiary care hospital. The use of the intra/extracardiac fenestration is a promising modification because it is unlikely to be occluded by surrounding tissue and may be associated with decreased pleural effusions, length of hospital stay, and incidence of postoperative arrhythmias.

CONCLUSIONS: Limited evidence suggests the CAC score is associated with risk of dementia. In clinical CAD, risk of MCI and dementia is increased by 50%, as supported by stronger evidence. PMID: 32062643 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

EvansAbstractThe ketone bodies, d-β-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate, are soluble 4-carbon compounds derived principally from fatty acids, that can be metabolised by many oxidative tissues, including heart, in carbohydrate-depleted conditions as glucose-sparing energy substrates. They also have important signalling functions, acting through G-protein coupled receptors and histone deacetylases to regulate metabolism and gene expression including ...

Publication date: April 2020Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 58Author(s): Hongguang Pan, Wenyu Mi, Xinyu Lei, Jun DengAbstractBrain–machine interfaces (BMIs) can be adopted to rehabilitate motor systems for disabled subjects by sensing cortical neuronal activities and creating new method. In this paper, to achieve the function of motor rehabilitation, two generalized BMI frameworks, including decoders, encoders and auxiliary controllers, are proposed and compared based on a classical single-joint information transmission model. Firstly, a decoder based on the Wiener filter and an encoder based...

Authors: Fumagalli S, Boni S, Pupo S, Migliorini M, Marozzi I, Barghini E, Sacco F, Marchionni N Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent arrhythmia in elderly people. Findings derived from clinical trials seem to demonstrate that a rate-control strategy of AF in aged patients improves prognosis if compared to a rhythm-control one. However, epidemiological studies concordantly show that the arrhythmia is associated to increased hospitalization and mortality rates. In last years, the proportion of patients admitted to hospital for AF has progressively increased; this trend is observed in subjects>75...
