Sex-differences in 30-day Readmission Rates, Etiology And Predictors After Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Publication date: Available online 9 September 2019Source: Indian Heart JournalAuthor(s): Rajkumar Doshi, Mohamed Taha, Mihir Dave, Rupak Desai, Nageshwara GullapalliAbstractBackgroundThe aim of this study is to analyze sex-specific readmission rates, etiology, and predictors of readmission after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Readmissions post-TAVR is common, contributing to increased healthcare utilization and costs. Many factors have been discovered as predictors of readmission, however, sex-specific disparities in readmission ratesis limited.MethodsBetween January 2012 and September 2015, adult patientsafter TAVR were identified using appropriate international classifications of diseases, ninth revision, clinical modification from the National Readmission Database. Incidence of unplanned 30-days readmission rate was the primary outcome of this study. Additionally, this study includes sex-specific etiology and predictors of readmissions.Multivariate logistic regression was performed to analyze adjusted readmission rates.Hierarchical 2-level logistic models were used to evaluate predictors of readmission.ResultsReadmission rates at 30-day were 17.3%, with slightly higher readmission rates in women (OR 1.09 CI: 1.01-1.19, P

We report that Tbx5 and Gata4 interact with opposite signs for atrial rhythm controls compared with cardiac development. Using mouse genetics, we found that AF pathophysiology caused by Tbx5 haploinsufficiency, including atrial arrhythmia susceptibility, prolonged action potential duration, and ectopic cardiomyocyte depolarizations, were all rescued by Gata4 haploinsufficiency. In contrast, Nkx2-5 haploinsufficiency showed no combinatorial effect. The molecular basis of the TBX5/GATA4 interaction included normalization of intra-cardiomyocyte calcium flux and expression of calcium channel genes Atp2a2 and Ryr2. Furthermore,...

RESUMO A sepse persiste como importante sobrecarga à saúde pública nos Estados Unidos e em todo o mundo. Com o crescente uso de tecnologias laboratoriais, tem se renovado o interesse na utilização de biomarcadores na sepse, para auxiliar em um processo mais preciso e direcionado para tomadas de decisão. Os peptídeos natriuréticos vem sendo c ada vez mais reconhecidos por seu papel que vai além da insuficiência cardíaca. Estes peptídeos estão comumente elevados em pacientes críticos que apresentam condições de disf...

Vessel ligation, typically the uterine artery, has been described as a preventative measure for bleeding in laparoscopic myomectomy. The internal iliac, or hypogastric artery, a vessel that obstetricians are familiar with ligating in the setting of postpartum hemorrhage, can also be used in laparoscopic myomectomy. In this video, we will review existing literature on vessel ligation in laparoscopic myomectomy, and then demonstrate internal iliac artery ligation as a prophylactic measure, as well as one to treat acute intraoperative hemorrhage.

Subendothelial (intracavitary) leiomyomas are rare and can be challenging to manage. They commonly recur and can present with significant abnormal uterine bleeding or infertility. Our objective is to discuss the clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of this rare condition. The patients in these series presented with either heavy menstrual bleeding or infertility. Preoperative imaging studies showed multiple small fibroids, however the diagnosis was not confirmed until the uterus was surgically evaluated.

This study investigated if statins would similarly reduce postoperative arrhythmias in patients undergoing THA. METHODS:: We queried a large Medicare and private-payer database from 2005 to 2012 and identified 12,075 patients who were on a statin prior to THA. We then age and sex matched 34,446 non-statin users who underwent THA. Baseline comorbidities and postoperative complications were obtained and assessed via standard descriptive statistics. RESULTS:: The statin users had more preoperative comorbidities including congestive heart failure, valvular heart disease, pulmonary and renal disease, diabetes, hyperte...
