r M Abstract OBJECTIVE: Fast track concepts are used to reduce the risk of perioperative and postoperative complications after total knee arthroplasty. INDICATIONS: The described concepts are used for patients with indications for the implantation of a total knee prosthesis. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Contraindications for fast track concepts are aged patients, dementia, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade IV and implantation of large revision or tumor prostheses. Contraindications for tranexamic acid are bleeding in the urinary tract, caution in cases of known epilepsy, individual risk assessment ...

This study was designed to look at the species of bacteria that use nitrate and convert it into nitric oxide, which when swallowed helps maintain a widening of blood vessels that leads to the ongoing effect of exercise on blood pressure. Published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, the study asked participants to fast for the night and then run on a treadmill the next day for 30 minutes on two separate occasions. At one, 30, 60,and 90 minutes after each run they were asked to wash their mouths with either a placebo of mint-flavored water or antibacterial mouthwash. Blood and saliva samples were collected and...

Walking is often touted as a perfect exercise to improve multiple aspects of health. But what if walking causes leg pain? Many people shrug off leg pain when they walk as a normal part of aging. In some cases, though, it’s the sign of peripheral artery disease (PAD), which can put heart and brain health at risk. While PAD doesn’t usually run in families, it’s more likely to occur as people age, or among people who smoke or have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. What causes leg pain if you have PAD? People with PAD have fatty deposits in arteries outside the heart — most often in th...

Authors: Obaid DR, Chase AJ, Smith D Abstract A 61-year-old patient who underwent emergent coronary angiography and drug-eluting stent implantation of a calcified left anterior descending coronary artery returned 2 days later with recurrence of chest pain and anterior ST-segment elevation. Three-dimensional OCT revealed extensive fracture and distortion of the struts in the distal portion of a stent, presumably caused by aggressive postdilation at the time of implantation. This was managed successfully with the insertion of a new coronary stent inside the damaged stent segment. PMID: 31478898 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions. We report the use of IABP in patients with acute chest pain admitted for angiography. Long-term survival is acceptable and discriminating factors were no revascularisation, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and age. IABP was safe and feasible and the complication rate was low.
