Conclusion: Chinese women had a substantially lower risk of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and the postpartum period compared to that of Caucasians. The occurrence of pregnancy-related venous thromboembolism was largely confined to the early pregnancy period, probably related to the adoption of thromboprophylaxis, a lower rate of Cesarean section, and early mobilization.

ConclusionThis research supports and extends the ethnomedicinal use of C. songarica as diuretic and hypotensive agent. The results showed that AS-CS from C. songarica could present compounds responsible for hypotensive and diuretic activities with no signs of toxicity, and these effects could involve nitric oxide pathway activated by muscarinic receptors or/and inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme.Graphical abstract

NolanABSTRACTBackgroundBehavioural counselling via internet- or mobile-based digital platforms is recommended for hypertension, however outcome heterogeneity is problematic in trials of this digital intervention. Our objective was to assess how therapeutic outcome was optimized in digital trials for hypertension, according to key features of the intervention design and protocol.MethodsWe identified randomized controlled digital trials for systoli...

This study aimed to investigate if statin use in cancer survivors was inversely associated with all-cause mortality.Methods and ResultsData from the 2002 to 2015 National Health Insurance Service-National Health Screening Cohort (NHIS-HEALS) were used. The Kaplan-Meier estimator was used to estimate the survival function according to statin usage. Cox proportional hazards regression models were adopted after stepwise adjustment for potential confounders to calculate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for all-cause mortality. The median follow-up duration was 10.0 years. Statin users had a higher percent...

This study aimed to indicate the risk factors of atrial fibrillation (AF) in thyrotoxic patients receiving radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy after antithyroid drug and other medication. Methods This study was a retrospective cohort study. Thyrotoxic patients were divided into two groups, with or without AF. Clinical features were retrospectively analyzed. Univariate and multivariate analyses of data from thyrotoxic patients were performed to evaluate the probability of AF. Results The following clinical factors were found to be correlated with AF: age, gender, duration of hyperthyroidism, coronary artery disease, hype...

Authors: Mazkereth R, Maayan-Metzger A, Leibovitch L, Schushan-Eisen I, Morag I, Straus T Abstract BACKGROUND: The need for postnatal monitoring of infants exposed to intrauterine beta blockers (BBs) has not been clearly defined. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate infants exposed to intrauterine BBs in order to estimate the need for postnatal monitoring. METHODS: This retrospective case-control study comprised 153 term infants born to mothers who had been treated with BBs during pregnancy. Treatment indications included hypertension 76 mothers (49.7%), cardiac arrhythmias 48 (31.4%), rheumatic heart disease 14 (9.1%),...

AbstractAimsPeople ’s knowledge, awareness, and attitude (KAA) about hypertension are the cornerstone of hypertension control and/or prevention. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the level of KAA of hypertensive populations about their disease and compare the level of KAA between rural and urban areas in Sel angor, Malaysia.Subjects and methodsA cross-sectional study was conducted at Hospital Kuala Lumpur and six rural areas in Selangor, Malaysia. A valid questionnaire was used to evaluate the level of KAA of the Malaysian hypertensive population. One thousand subjects were recruited by the non-probability co...
