Targeting different pathways involved in thrombotic processes have synergistic effects and more effectively counteract thrombosis both in the acute and long-term following an ACS. Unavoidably, more potent platelet inhibition increases the risk of bleeding. In light of the adverse prognostic implications associated with bleeding, including increased mortality, safety aspects wit...

FalkAbstractPatients with giant hiatal hernia (GHH) are often symptomatic and have significantly reduced quality of life (QoL). Advanced age is a predictor of increased morbidity and mortality in open hiatal surgery, however, outcomes of laparoscopic surgery in patients over the age of 80 are limited to case reports and small case series.Data was extracted from a prospectively maintained database. Consecutive patients over the age of 80 with GHH that have undergone surgery were included. Peri-operative m...
