Alcohol-induced autonomic dysfunction: a systematic review

ConclusionCurrent literature includes studies of highly heterogeneous populations, consuming differing volumes of alcohol over variable periods of time and utilising a number of different autonomic test batteries and criteria to diagnose autonomic dysfunction. Therefore, further research using homogeneous methods for measuring autonomic dysfunction in the field is needed. Despite this limitation, our review demonstrated that autonomic dysfunction is very common among alcohol abusers.

Purpose of review The obesity epidemic is progressively affecting majority of individuals worldwide leading to many adverse metabolic and cardiovascular outcomes. Increasingly concerning among them is obesity hypertension (HTN). In this review, we delve into the physiology and therapeutic options in obesity HTN as we discuss the implications of obesity HTN on society. Recent findings Obesity is the most common cause of primary HTN and is directly proportional to increases BMI. The significance of adiposity in obesity HTN centers on humoral mechanisms via stimulation of the renal-angiotensin system, leptin activity, sy...

Authors: Sangiorgi G, Pizzuto A, Diehm N, Greco F, Fusco F, Chiricolo G, Vismara A, Altieri V, Cereda A, Bongo S Abstract Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability to attain or maintain penile erection sufficient for successful sexual intercourse. ED carries a notable influence on quality of life, with significant implications for family and social relationships. Because atherosclerosis of penile arteries represents one of the most frequent causes of ED, patients presenting with it should always be investigated for potential coexistent coronary or peripheral disease. Up to 75% of patients with ED have a...

The objective of this study was to provide an overview of whether adherence to brain trauma foundation (BTF) guidelines improved outcomes following TBI utilizing intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. Methods: This cohort study between 2000 and 2013 involved 1848 patients who sustained severe blunt TBI. Outcomes were correlated with whether or not ICP monitoring was utilized based on BTF guidelines. Results: The BTF guideline adherence rate for utilizing ICP monitoring in patients with TBI was 30% in 1848 patients. Adherence rates positively correlated with younger age, high injury severity scores, lower Glasgow C...

AbstractThe current study examined whether husband ’s controlling and domineering attitudes moderated the association between husband’s alcohol consumption and women’s physical violence experience. Using data from the Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), a total of 20,101 nationally representative married women in Nigeria reported on h usband-perpetrated physical violence, husband’s alcohol consumption, and husband’s controlling and domineering attitudes. Weighted data were analyzed using zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) regression models. The models revealed that women whose hus...

Interventional Oncology has evolved and grown into a distinct subspecialty of Interventional Radiology and ablation technologies are a critical component of this growth. From the early beginnings of alcohol ablation to latest addition of irreversible electroporation, ablation has changed cancer management in ways that could not have been imagined just a few decades ago.
