Abstract Danshen (Cai, et al. 2016) is the dry root and rhizome of the herbaceous plant Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge. of family labiatae, a perennial plant that is native to China and Japan. The primary modern clinical applications of Danshen are for heart disease, chronic hepatitis, early cirrhosis, cerebral ischemia and pulmonary heart disease. Emerging evidence from cellular, animal, and clinical studies has begun to illuminate the pharmacological attributes of the primary lipophilic tanshinones from Danshen, which include tanshinone I, tanshinone II, cryptotanshinone and dihydrotanshinone, etc. Tanshinones offer th...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to explore the safety and efficacy of bivalirudin in elderly patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).MethodsAn electronic search was conducted for randomized controlled trials with outcomes of interest in the elderly ( ≥ 65 years of age). Pooled risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) using random effects Der Simonian–Laird models were calculated. Primary outcomes were net adverse clinical events (NACE) and major bleeding events at 30 days. Secondary outcomes were major adverse cardiac events (MA CE) at 30 days. MACE, all...

Zhang The development of online social platforms has promoted the improvement of online health communities (OHCs). However, OHCs often ignore differences in user discussions caused by the characteristics of diseases. The purpose of this research was to study differences in the topics and emotions of patients with physiological and psychological diseases by mining the text that they posted in OHCs as well as to discuss how to satisfy these differences. The data came from Baidu Post Bar, the world's biggest Chinese forum. We collected 50,230 posts from heart disease, hypertension, depression and obsessive-compulsiv...

AbstractRehospitalization following pediatric heart transplantation is common. However, existing data remain somewhat limited. Using a novel linkage between administrative and clinical databases, pediatric heart transplant (HT) recipients from 29 centers who survived to discharge were retrospectively reviewed to determine the frequency, timing of, and indication for all-cause rehospitalizations in the year following transplant discharge. Of 2870 pediatric HT recipients, 1835 (63.9%) were rehospitalized in the first year post-discharge (5429 total readmissions). Rehospitalization rates varied significantly across centers (4...

Rates of sudden cardiac arrest are rising after decades of decline, according to the latest findings in a multi-year, comprehensive study of Oregon patients. The Oregon Sudden Unexpected Death Study also revealed an unexplained difference between the sexes. In women, sudden cardiac arrest was largely their first manifestation of heart disease, while in men, the increase was mostly among those with known heart disease. The study, which completed its 18 th year, has produced several papers. The latest…

Conclusion: Based on our study, we recommend removing the drain as soon as its role is complete, generally on postoperative day 1, because early removal does not increase the incidence of pericardial effusion in patients undergoing simple congenital cardiac surgery. PMID: 32090053 [PubMed]
