Prevalence and natural history of and risk factors for subaneurysmal aorta among 65-year-old men.

Prevalence and natural history of and risk factors for subaneurysmal aorta among 65-year-old men. Ups J Med Sci. 2019 Aug 28;:1-7 Authors: Thorbjørnsen K, Svensjö S, Djavani Gidlund K, Gilgen NP, Wanhainen A Abstract Background: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of screening-detected subaneurysmal aorta (SAA), i.e. an aortic diameter of 2.5-2.9 cm, its associated risk factors, and natural history among 65-year-old men. Methods: A total of 14,620 men had their abdominal aortas screened with ultrasound and completed a health questionnaire containing information on smoking habits and medical history. They were categorized based on the aortic diameter: normal aorta (

Authors: Nuotio J, Suvila K, Cheng S, Langén V, Niiranen T Abstract Observational and interventional studies have unequivocally demonstrated that "present", i.e. single-occasion, blood pressure is one of the key determinants of cardiovascular disease risk. Over the past two decades, however, numerous publications have suggested that longitudinal blood pressure data and assessment of long-term blood pressure exposure provide incremental prognostic value over present blood pressure. These studies have used several different indices to quantify the overall exposure to blood pressure, such as time-aver...

ConclusionsCompared with the general population, the prevalence of elevated CVP and OSA is significant in this cohort of patients. Age, diabetes, and right lower extremity chronic venous insufficiency symptoms seem to be predictors of elevated CVP. Larger, population-based prevalence studies are needed to confirm these findings.

ConclusionsThere are elevated levels of risk for CVD in some athletes, primarily football players. Lifestyle behaviours associated with elite athleticism, particularly football linemen potentially expose players to greater metabolic and CVD risk, which is not completely offset by sport participation.

Publication date: January 2020Source: Pregnancy Hypertension, Volume 19Author(s): Zain Awamleh, Victor K.M. HanAbstractPreeclampsia (PE) and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) are pregnancy complications resulting from abnormal placental development. As epigenetic regulators, microRNAs can regulate placental development and contribute to the disease pathophysiology by influencing the expression of genes involved in placental development or disease. Our previous study revealed an increase in miR-210-5p expression in placentae from patients with early-onset pregnancy complications and identified candidate gene targets fo...

ConclusionWe feel these data are suggestive of increased on-aspirin platelet (re-)activity, as measured by the PFA-200 and the VerifyNow, in non-pregnant carriers of a FII-mutation, but not in carriers of FVL-mutation. Interestingly, this increased on-aspirin platelet (re-)activity is present in spite of low sTxB2 levels.
