ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.

AbstractBackgroundRisk factors for heart disease include arterial hypertension, high cholesterol, tobacco abuse, and obesity. There is a paucity of data regarding role of ethnicity in bariatric surgery (BS) outcomes. The study ’s aim is to determine if ethnicity plays a significant role in BS outcomes, heart age, and cardiovascular risk.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective review of data collected concurrently from patients who underwent BS from 2010 to 2015. We analyzed demographics, comorbidities, heart age, and cardiovascular risk-score at surgery and 12-month follow-up. Ethnicities categorized were Caucasian and A...

Authors: Boivin JM, Risse J, Laurière E, Burnier M Abstract Purpose: Worldwide, hypertension awareness remains largely insufficient. This is particularly true in some population subgroups with a low socioeconomic status or in young adults who have limited interactions with healthcare systems. Performing Blood Pressure (BP) screening in non-conventional settings, such as in barbershops, has been suggested by a number of American authors. Whether this approach is feasible in Europe or in North Africa has not been evaluated, however. We, therefore, undertook a study to assess the value of BP screening at hairdr...

Authors: Augstburger E, Héron E, Abanou A, Habas C, Baudouin C, Labbe A Abstract Ischemic optic neuropathies are among the leading causes of severe visual acuity loss in people over 50 years of age. They constitute a set of various entities that are clinically, etiologically and therapeutically different. Anatomically, it is necessary to distinguish anterior and posterior forms. From an etiological point of view, the diagnosis of the arteritic form due to giant cell arteritis requires emergent management to prevent blindness and even death in the absence of prompt corticosteroid treatment. When this diagnosi...

We investigated the association between FGF-23 concentration and peripheral AS in renal transplantation (RT) recipients.MethodsThe fasting blood samples of RT recipients (n=66) were collected and analyzed.ResultsA total of 29 (43.9%) RT recipients were classified under the peripheral AS group. The RT recipients in this group had a hig...

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE is often described as insidious because it tends to creep up unannounced and only makes itself known when it has inflicted serious damage. Luckily, the condition is easily reversed if you shun certain items and increase your intake of others. Legumes have been touted for their blood pressure-lowering benefits, but which legume provides the greatest benefit?
