Estimating the real burden of cardiovascular mortality in diabetes.

CONCLUSIONS: The re-assignment of the underlying cause and the analyses of the multiple causes of death allowed to estimate the whole burden of mortality associated with cardiovascular diseases. PMID: 31378913 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 9 September 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Mony Shuvy, Donna R. Zwas, Chaim Lotan, Andre Keren, Israel GotsmanAbstractBackgroundUrinary albumin to creatinine ratio (UACR) is common in patients with heart failure (HF) and may have an impact on clinical outcome. We evaluated the effect of UACR on clinical outcome in a real-world cohort of patients with HF.MethodsAll patients with HF at a health maintenance organization were followed for cardiac-related hospitalizations and death.ResultsThe study cohort included 4,668 HF patients and was divided into 3 groups based on U...

CONCLUSION: The occurrence of pathological FFR values, most frequently documented in the LAD, was the same in patients with or without HFrEF, HFpEF, diabetes mellitus, AF, and LVH, demonstrating that these comorbidities did not influence FFR values and, thus, the indication for PCI.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Data on the prevalence and predictors for the development of pacing-dependency in patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are sparse. METHODS: Pacing-dependency defined as an absence of intrinsic rhythm of ≥ 30 bpm was determined in 802 consecutive patients with CIEDs who visited the documented pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator outpatient clinic for routine follow-up. RESULTS: A total of 131 (16%) patients were found to be pacing-dependent 67 ± 70 months after CIED implant. Multivariate analysis revealed a significant associatio...

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1693031 Objective The relationship of a preoperative Prognostic Nutritional Index (PNI) with perioperative adverse events (PAEs) other than delirium has never been described in patients undergoing spinal surgery. We aimed to evaluate the impact of admission PNI on the outcome of patients undergoing spinal surgery. Methods Medical records of 408 consecutive patients 50 years or older undergoing spinal surgery were reviewed. Patients' information including demographic data, routine preoperative laboratory tests, and PNI were collected to assess the associ...

CONCLUSIONS: Physicians had a lower prevalence for dementia than the general population. The prevalence for dementia in specific subgroups of physicians was higher, which needs to be clarified by further studies. PMID: 31428999 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Background: Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) have a higher risk of fatal complications (e.g., stroke). This investigation was performed as an observational retrospective cohort study includes 137 patients (age 61 ± 15; 34.3% women) with a primary diagnosis of AF (paroxysmal, persistent, and permanent). Methods: We collected information about the drug therapy, comorbidities and survival of AF patients and determined their congestive heart failure, hypertension, age, diabetes mellitus, prior stroke or TIA or thromboembolism, vascular disease, age, sex category (CHA2DS2-VASc) scores. Statistical analysis...

Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes severe cardiac dysrhythmia among patients with cardiovascular diseases. AF increases the risk of stroke and heart failure and is a growing public health concern. AF is also associated with various disease conditions such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, aging, and diabetes mellitus. The mechanism underlying AF is not completely understood due to its complexity. However, experimental and clinical data have revealed that the prevalence of this disease is associated with atrial arrhythmogenic remodeling. Currently, there are no biomarkers that are available for the ea...

This study aimed to use data from the Chinese Atrial Fibrillation Registry study to assess the control of anticoagulation therapy in Chinese patients with NVAF treated with warfarin. MATERIAL AND METHODS From the Chinese Atrial Fibrillation Registry study the anticoagulant use and dosing, the time in therapeutic range (TTR) of the international normalized ratio (INR), and standard deviation of the observed INR values (SDINR), and their influencing factors were evaluated. RESULTS The median INR and SDINR were 2.04 (IQR 1.71-2.41) and 0.50 (IQR, 0.35-0.69), respectively. The median TTR was 51.7% (IQR, 30.6-70.1%) and only 25...
