Abstract Objective: To evaluate the prognostic value of CHA2DS2-VASc score in individuals undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Methods: Records of consecutive 464 patients who underwent elective isolated CABG, between January 2015 and August 2017, were retrospectively reviewed. A major adverse cardiac event (MACE) was the primary outcome of this study. MACE in patients with low (L) ( 2 had 52.6% sensitivity and 84.1% specificity (AUC: 0.752, P

Kim, John S. SteinbergAbstractHeel ulcers have a significant impact on lower-extremity morbidity and confer high risk of major amputations. Treating these ulcers is difficult because of poor tissue coverage and the bony os calcis, often leading to proximal amputation. This case series shows the vertical contour calcanectomy (VCC) as a surgical alternative in functional limb salvage. Sixteen feet (14 patients) with recalcitrant heel wounds...

Conclusion: In this real word, retrospective, observational study, we found a significant difference in the prevalence of MINOCA pts according to different types of myocardial infarction. In the MINOCA group, the mortality of women with STEMI was substantially higher. Orv Hetil. 2019; 160(45): 1791-1797. PMID: 31680539 [PubMed - in process]

Diabetic foot ulcer is a common complication of diabetes. The lifetime prevalance of diabetic foot ulcers has been estimated to between 19 and 34% in diabetic patients [1]. In addition, the annual incidence rates of diabetic foot ulcers in the global population of diabetic patients has been reported to be 6.3 percent [2]. Diabetic foot ulcers frequently lead to lower extremity amputations, approximately 75% of which are performed in diabetic patients due to a combination of peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, poor glycemic control, and superimposing infections [3].

Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a major health problem and remains a major cause of amputation across the world. Critical assessment of the relationship between peripheral artery disease, revascularization, and healing of DFU was performed. A new therapy has been claimed to prevent major amputations in advanced DFU. The intralesional injection of recombinant human epidermal growth factor (EGF) should often lead to satisfactory outcomes. The purpose of our study was to demonstrate the advantage of the combination of revascularization and EGF local infiltration in accelerating healing of DFU.
