Long-Term Single Centre Outcomes of Patients with Chronic Renal Dialysis Undergoing Cardiac Surgery.

Long-Term Single Centre Outcomes of Patients with Chronic Renal Dialysis Undergoing Cardiac Surgery. Ann Thorac Surg. 2019 Sep 26;: Authors: Mourad F, Cleve N, Nowak J, Wendt D, Sander A, Demircioglu E, El Gabry M, Jakob H, Shehada SE Abstract BACKGROUND: Prevalence of dialysis-dependent chronic renal failure (DD-CRF) is growing worldwide. Such patients are exposed to a higher cardiovascular risk due to severe calcification and congestive heart failure caused by volume overload, which end up in poor outcomes. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate outcomes of DD-CRF patients undergoing cardiac surgery in our institute. METHODS: A retrospective evaluation of 241-consecutive patients presented with DD-CRF undergoing cardiac-surgery between 01/2000-12/2017. Endpoints were major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events and long-term survival. Additionally, Cox-Regression multivariate-analysis was performed to detect independent predictors of mortality. Follow-up was 98.3 % complete through August 2018. RESULTS: Mean age was 63±12.2 years, and 65.1% were male. Congestive heart failure (CHF) was present in 41.5% of patients, 30.7% had prior myocardial infarction, 9.1% had prior cardiac surgery, and 22.4% needed urgent/emergent surgery. They underwent either isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG, 44.8%), isolated non-CABG (17.8%) or concomitant procedure (37.3%). Early outcomes reported in-hospital mortality in 10.4%, low cardiac output syn...

Abstract For older adults, heart failure (HF) has the highest 30-day hospital readmission rate of any chronic illness. Despite research into strategies to reduce readmissions, no single program has emerged as sustainable. The purpose of the current study was to test a researcher-developed home health nurse HF intervention (CareNavRN™) on 30-day readmission rates, HF knowledge, self-care, and quality of life (QOL) among 40 older adults transitioning home. Home health nurses received specialized HF training and visited patients once per week at home for 4 weeks. The control group (n = 21) had six readmissions ...

CONCLUSION: As reimbursement for emergency medicine in Germany was recently rearranged, quality benchmarking has gained incremental importance. Mandatory joint quality measurement in both concepts ensuring gap analysis and process improvement is encouraged. PMID: 31970463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Goeder D, Oberhoffer R Abstract Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Apart from a few exceptions heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial occlusive disease first occur in later adulthood. The cornerstone for these diseases, however, is already laid by accelerated vascular aging in childhood. Apart from pediatric medical preventive check-ups, the medical care of the parents should also be a reason for taking action. A detailed family history enables many conclusions to be drawn about the cardiovascular risk of the next generation This requires targeted diagn...

ConclusionsIL-9 aggravated cardiac dysfunction and amplified cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis in the ISO-induced HF model by activating STAT3 signaling. These data indicate that blocking IL-9 may be an attractive pharmacotherapeutic strategy for the treatment of cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis induced by chronic β-adrenergic receptor activation to limit the progression of HF.

Bernier, Riccardo Proietti, Vidal EssebagAbstractCatheter ablation (CA) was developed as a potentially curative procedure through electrical isolation of the pulmonary veins to isolate the main triggers of atrial fibrillation (AF). When successful, CA has clearly been shown to decrease AF recurrence and symptoms as well as improve quality of life. With advancing technology, increased procedural success, and lower complication risk, CA is being utilized at much higher rates, with broad...
