Exposure to heavy metals is common. This exposure is related to environmental contamination of air, water and soil, occupational exposure, accumulation in food, tobacco, and other factors. Cadmium and lead are notable for their widespread contamination, long-lasting effects in the body, and renal as well as cardiovascular toxicity. Acute toxicity due to high-level exposure, as well as chronic low-level exposure are now well-established pathogenic entities. Both chronic renal failure and ischemic heart disease patients have been treated separately in recent studies with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) chelation thera...

AbstractBackgroundWith advances in care, neonates undergoing cardiac repairs are surviving more frequently. Our objectives were to 1) estimate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hypertension 6  years after neonatal congenital heart surgery and 2) determine if cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CS-AKI) is associated with these outcomes.MethodsTwo-center prospective, longitudinal single-visit cohort study including children with congenital heart disease surgery as neonates between January 2005 and December 2012. CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate

uer F Abstract BACKGROUND: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a heterogeneous, severe and progressive disease with an impact on quality of life and life-expectancy despite specific therapies. AIMS: (i) to compare prognosis significance of each PH subgroup in a cohort from a referral center, (ii) to identify phenotypically distinct high-risk PH patient using machine learning. METHODS: Patients with PH were included from 2002 to 2019 and routinely followed-up. We collected clinical, laboratory, imaging and hemodynamic variables. Four-year survival rate of each subgroups was then compared. Next, phenotypic doma...

Both retrobulbar hemorrhage and plate extrusion are uncommon complications after implantation of a glaucoma drainage device (GDD). There are no published reports on extrusion of an Ahmed glaucoma valve after delayed-onset retrobulbar hemorrhage in Korea. Herein, we report a case of spontaneous extrusion of a GDD after delayed-onset retrobulbar hemorrhage in a patient on anticoagulation. The case was a 72-year-old man with open-angle glaucoma and proliferative diabetic retinopathy, as well as systemic hypertension, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure due to coronary heart disease, and chronic kidney disease, who u...

CONCLUSIONS: Among older adults with dementia, proactive and ambulatory care that includes informal caregivers along with primary and specialty providers, may offer promise to decrease use and costs for chronic kidney disease, ischemic heart disease, atrial fibrillation, depression, and hypertension.

In conclusion, uric acid is emerging as a potentially treatable risk factor for cardiometabolic diseases, and more clinical trials investigating the potential benefit of lowering serum uric acid are recommended in individuals with hyperuricaemia with and without deposition and concomitant hypertension, metabolic syndrome or chronic kidney disease.

It is a rare disorder encountered mostly in ABO blood group-mismatched solid organ transplantation. The present case report illustrates the clinical presentation and the mode of management of PLS in a bidirectional ABO-incompatible renal transplantation. A 43-year-...

Conclusion: The varied spectra of COVID-19 mostly affects young adult age group (third to fifth decades of life). Interestingly, early age group was also affected in significant proportion when compared with similar data from other countries. It was observed that male population seemed to be was more prone to getting infected. Majority of COVID-19 positive patients (nearly three-fourth) were asymptomatic (mostly in young age range) at the time of diagnosis, which poses a major challenge for health care workers. Fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath were major symptoms that could be detected in such COVID-19 pat...
