Authors: Saeed S, Dweck MR, Chambers J Abstract Introduction: In aortic stenosis (AS), there are clear sex-differences in clinical presentation, left ventricular (LV) response to pressure overload, and pathophysiology of valvular calcification. These differences may affect outcome following valve intervention.Area covered: This review aims to discuss sex-differences in clinical presentation, pathophysiology of aortic valve calcification, LV remodeling in view of historic and recent echocardiographic and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging studies, and outcome after valve intervention. In addition, it will also provi...

This article also discusses the clinical trials on treatment of hypertension in the elderly, the 2018 European Society of Cardiology/European Society of Hypertension hypertension guidelines, and the treatment of hypertension and of resistant hypertension in the elderly. For elderly adults with hypertension and a high burden of comorbidities and limited life expectancy, clinical judgment, patient preference, and a team-based approach to assess risk/benefit is reasonable for decisions about the intensity of SBP lowering and the choice of antihypertensive drugs to use for treatment. Randomized clinical trials need to be perfo...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data support the adoption of the surgical management of the morbidly obese patient. Although short term complication rates are higher with increasing obesity (II-III class), a majority of procedures can still be completed with minimally invasive approach.

Authors: Katsimardou A, Imprialos K, Stavropoulos K, Sachinidis A, Doumas M, Athyros VG Abstract Introduction: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic, autoimmune disease that is characterized by total absence of insulin production. Hypertension is a common comorbidity in T1DM with complex pathophysiology, while it is also a well-recognized risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), as well as other microvascular diabetic complications.Areas covered: The purpose of this review is to present the current definitions, epidemiological data and prevalence rates of hypertension in T1DM, as well...

A 61-year-old morbidly obese Caucasian woman with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and 6-month history of hypokalemia presented with generalized muscle weakness and nonoliguric acute kidney injury. After cholecystectomy in 2006, she underwent lysis of adhesions, partial ileal and rectosigmoid resection, and permanent end colostomy in 2011. Outpatient medications included Nexium (AstraZeneca, Wilmington, DE), pravastatin, furosemide (20 mg daily), and potassium chloride (10 mEq daily). She presented in July 2019 with serum creatinine 9.8 mg/dL (increased from baseline 1.0 mg/dL 1 year prior), serum sodium 133 mmol/l, chloride ...

AbstractBackgroundIsolated case series from highly specialized centers suggest the feasibility of a 23-h hospital stay after colectomy. We sought to determine preoperative variables associated with discharge within 23  h after colectomy to identify patients best suited for a short-stay model.MethodsThe American College of Surgeons NSQIP Colectomy-Targeted database was used to identify patients who underwent elective colectomy from 2012 to 2017. All cases with missing length of stay or inpatient death were excluded. Patients with a postoperative hospital stay ≤1 day were identified. Univariate and multivariate analy...
