CONCLUSION: Long-term exposure to PM2.5, PM10 and NO2 was associated with increased blood pressure and hypertension in rural Chinese adults, and the associations were modified by several behavioral factors. PMID: 32069739 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsOur study suggests that the CAT can be applied to evaluate the lung ‐specific quality of life in SSc‐ILD similar to IIP regarding the pulmonary function, but it should be noted that pulmonary arterial hypertension in SSc‐ILD influences the CAT score.

Hepatic venous outflow obstruction is a feared complication of liver transplantation that can lead to failure of the graft and development of posthepatic portal hypertension and associated complications, such as ascites. This complication is seen from 5.3 to 12.9% of patients post liver transplantation. We aim to retrospectively evaluate the efficacy and patency of hepatic vein stenting for hepatic venous outflow obstruction post liver transplantation.

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is an interventional radiology procedure to treat complications arising from portal hypertension in patients with liver disease. Postoperative survival following TIPS are dependent on several factors. This purpose of this study is to determine whether machine learning models can accurately predict in-hospital mortality following TIPS and ultimately, be used to develop a computational tool that can stratify patients based on their mortality risk.

Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) has emerged as a novel treatment option for inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and persistent pulmonary hypertension post pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) when traditional treatment options fail. However, the availability of BPA is limited to relatively few centers internationally with a dearth of literature published to date. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of BPA as a treatment modality for CTEPH at a national Canadian referral center.

The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, complications, and 30-day mortality of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation performed using 12 mm internal diameter polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered stents in patients with portal hypertension and variceal hemorrhage.

Abdominal and pelvic surgeries in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension are associated with high rates of complications due to venous congestion. Preoperative portal decompression to treat complications of elevated portal pressure may be beneficial in reducing these complications. The aim of this study is to assess outcomes of cirrhotic patients undergoing abdominal and pelvic surgery after placement of TIPS for portal decompression.
