Purpose of review Patients on hemodialysis have significantly higher rates of cardiovascular mortality resulting from a multitude of myocardial dysfunctions. Current imaging modalities allow independent assessment of cardiac morphology, contractile function, coronary arteries and cardiac perfusion. Techniques such as cardiac computed tomography (CT) imaging have been available for some time, but have not yet had widespread adoption because of technical limitations related to cardiac motion, radiation exposure and safety of contrast agents in kidney disease. Recent findings Novel dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) CT imag...

Conclusions. Only one-thirds of the sample was aware of their calculated risk for cardiovascular mortality and risk underestimation was the most common mode of risk unawareness, prompting concerns on the possible impact of the latter on adherence to the strategies aimed to reduce cardiovascular risk.

ConclusionBy applying [11C]DASB and PET/CT, semiquantitative measures of SERT availability are demonstrated in the lung vasculature of patients with COPD and/or PH. COPD patients who developed PH show increased pulmonary [11C]DASB uptake compared to COPD patients without PH indicating an implication of pulmonary SERT in the development of PH in COPD patients.

Authors: Pereira S, Salgueiro A, Rosa P, Peixoto C, Ferreira M, Silva D Abstract Primary hyperaldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary arterial hypertension and is frequently undiagnosed. It affects all ages but is more frequent between 20 and 60 years old. The clinical presentation is variable, and the diagnosis is based on screening and, in equivocal cases, confirmatory tests. A 19-year-old student presented with complaints of extreme fatigue, arterial hypertension, hypokalemia and metabolic alkalosis, raising a high index of suspicion for PA. Screening tests were performed and its expressiveness ...

We presented 2 patients with rare giant growing liposarcoma of the abdomen, weighing 21 kg and over 35 kg, respectively. Circulatory management was particularly difficult in the first case, while respiratory management and massive blood loss was very challenging in the second one. Diagnosis: With a computed tomography scan and peritoneal-to-abdominal height ratio measurement, preoperatively the risk of developing intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome was recognized early in each patient. The inferior vena cava and right atrium of the first patient was compressed and malformed due to the upl...

Conclusions: No significant differences were found in peripapillary and macular microcirculation detected by OCTA between AD and ED glaucomatous eyes. Peripapillary and macular microcirculation were significantly correlated with disease severity in AD and ED glaucomatous eyes.

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

Conclusion: In conclusion, patients with a ureteral catheter associated with APN should be given close attention with regards to the above risk factors. Early removal of the catheter is the best policy for the prevention of APN. PMID: 32975161 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: While none of described methods enables the simultaneous measurement of all microcirculatory parameters, certain techniques are widely used in arterial hypertension research, while others gain popularity in screening. PMID: 32969283 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
