Baseline Predictors of Renal Failure in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation.

CONCLUSION: Diabetics with CKD stage ≥4 (as defined by the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes criteria) constitute a high-risk group for developing AKI after TAVI. In this high-risk subgroup, baseline creatinine in combination with amount of contrast agent used were strong risk factors for developing AKI. AKI in non-diabetics was less predictable by baseline characteristics. PMID: 31567117 [PubMed - in process]

SUMMARY Type 2 diabetes mellitus is an important public health problem, with a significant impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and an important risk factor for chronic kidney disease. Various hypoglycemic therapies have proved to be beneficial to clinical outcomes, while others have failed to provide an improvement in cardiovascular and renal failure, only reducing blood glucose levels. Recently, sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, represented by the empagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and canagliflozin, have been showing satisfactory and strong results in several clinical trials, especially regarding...

Abstract Background and Objectives: Diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension (HT) are characterized by cell damage caused by inflammatory and metabolic mechanisms induced by alteration in reduction-oxidative status. Serum advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP) are new markers of protein damage induced by oxidative stress. We evaluated serum levels of AOPP in a cohort of patients with DM and HT, with or without renal complications, compared with a control healthy population. Materials and Methods: The study group comprised of 62 patients with type 2 DM and 56 with HT. The 62 patients affected by DM were further ...

Conclusion: Our findings describe the most reported risk factors for preventability of oral anticoagulant-induced bleedings. These factors may be useful for targeting interventions to improve pharmacovigilance activities in our regional territory and to reduce the burden of medication errors and inappropriate prescription. Introduction Oral anticoagulant therapy is widely used for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, or for the prevention and treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (Raj et al., 1994; Monaco et al., 2017). Oral anticoagulants can be di...

CONCLUSIONS: CKD is frequent in the diabetic population ≥ 65 years of age and is associated with elderly age, high comorbidity and with treated hypertension. No relationship has been found with gender and time in years since onset of diabetes. PMID: 29428153 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Population of patients with the impaired kidney function grows around the world. With the advances of the contemporary medicine people live to the older age, survive cardiac and cerebrovascular events, recover from the complex surgeries, overcome malignancies, infections and autoimmune diseases. That all frequently leads to the development of variable degree of chronic kidney impairment in form of interstitial and/or glomerular injury. Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) often share risk factors of hypertension, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, arterial and venous vascular disease, obesity, malnutrition and chro...

Abstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and macular degeneration (MD) are 2 grave diseases leading to significant disability secondary to renal failure and blindness. The 2 diseases share not only common risk factors but also similar pathogenic mechanisms to renal and retinal injuries. Previous epidemiological studies indicated association between these 2 diseases. However, this concept is challenged by recent investigations. Patients with mild to moderate CKD (nā€Š=ā€Š30,696) between January 1, 1995 and December 31, 2005 were selected from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database. Controls (nā€Š=ā€Š122,784) were match...

Previous Prevention of CAD Prevention is classified into primordial, primary and secondary. Primordial prevention is community level intervention to reduce risk factors and mostly not under the purview of the individual physician. Primary prevention is by controlling the risk factors. Non modifiable risk factors for CAD Age, gender, race/ethnicity and genetic predisposition or family history are considered the non modifiable risk factors for CAD. Prevalence of CAD increases as age advances and it is definitely more common in males. A strongly positive family history of premature coronary artery disease increases the r...
