Conclusion: Postoperative anemia is strongly associated with postoperative ischemic events, 90-day mortality, and long-term mortality. Restrictive transfusion should be used cautiously after major general and vascular operations, particularly in patients at a high cardiovascular risk.

High-dose chemotherapy (HDT) followed by autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is widely used in patients with malignant lymphomas. In Europe over 8,000 ASCTs for lymphoma were performed out of a total of 40,000 transplants according to the European Bone Marrow Transplant (EBMT) activity survey in 2017. ASCT is considered the standard treatment for eligible patients failing to achieve remission after first line chemotherapy or patients with relapsed or refractory lymphomas, including classical Hodkin's lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and follicular lymphoma, as well as con...

CONCLUSION: In this study, we could not detect an advantage in survival when SAVR or TAVR were utilized in intermediate to high surgical risk patients needing aortic valve replacement for severe aortic stenosis. PMID: 31596707 [PubMed - in process]

We present a patient who was admitted for carotid endarterectomy due to tight carotid stenosis and recent amaurosis fugax. His medical history included significant coronary artery disease with stable angina pectoris, hypertension with wide pulse pressure, chronic renal failure, and anemia. During preparation for surgery, the patient developed type 2 myocardial infarction with prolonged chest pain, ST depressions on electrocardiogram, and significant troponin elevations. The patient posed a serious clinical dilemma whether to continue with surgery despite the type 2 myocardial infarction or postpone the surgery. We discuss ...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewRecently, several large randomized studies and recommendations regarding patient blood management (PBM) in cardiac surgery were published. This review summarizes the current evidence relating to modern strategies in PBM from the perspective of the cardiovascular anesthesiologist.Recent FindingsPreoperative anemia should be early detected and adequately managed. In patients with intake of anticoagulants or platelet inhibitors, timely and specific stopping should be respected. Specific modification of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) systems aiming to reduce hemodilution and conserve patients ’...

Conclusions: Anemia on admission was associated with higher mortality and an increased risk of poor outcome in patients with ICH. However, the results were limited by the high heterogeneity of included studies. Prospective, multi-center or population-based, large sample cohort studies are needed in the future. Introduction Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the second most common cause of stroke and a highly lethal disease (1), which still lacks effective therapeutic interventions (2, 3). Although age, baseline ICH volume and neurological status on admission are well-known predictors of outcome of ICH (4), none of t...

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...

Acute myocardial infarction and renal dysfunction due to chronic extreme anemia (hemoglobin 2.5 g/dL) in immune thrombocytopenia. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2018 Oct;31(4):508-510 Authors: Muenchrath M, Aribindi K, Farnie M, DaSilva-DeAbreu A Abstract Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an acquired thrombocytopenia where autoantibodies are generated against platelet antigens. Primary ITP is often idiopathic, whereas secondary ITP has many potential causes, including drug induced, infection related (human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis C), leukemias, or autoimmune such as systemic lupus ...

CONCLUSION: Anaemia is frequent in patients with an ACS, and it is associated with a particular clinical and biological profile. The patients with anaemia have a mortality rate in 30 days higher than the patients without anaemia. PMID: 30266204 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
