This article highlights a case of a 49-year-old man who developed renal and lower extremity malperfusion secondary to Stanford Type A aortic dissection. Important historical clues and objective findings characteristic of acute aortic dissection and end-organ ischemia are discussed with the purpose of increasing reader knowledge of aortic dissection and signs of organ malperfusion with the hope that better awareness results in improved patient outcomes.

Conclusion: A strong association was found to exist between perioperative stroke and in-hospital mortality and morbidity after combined CABG and CEA. CEA procedures are thought to mitigate the high stroke rate of 3-5% post-CABG, but our study found that combined procedures exhibit a similar stroke risk undercutting their effectiveness. Further investigative studies on combined CABG+CEA are needed to assess risk-stratification for better patient selection and examine other preventative strategies to minimize the risk of ischemic strokes.

This report presents a post disaster evaluation of the burden of hypertension among victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Methods A retrospective observational study was completed in order to determine the prevalence of hypertension among patients attending clinics conducted by mobile medical teams (MMTs) in 40 barangays located in central Leyte and Western and Eastern Samar, island provinces within the Philippine Archipelago. Medical records were kept for all patients. Patient evaluations included a history and physical, during which vital signs were measured and recorded. Blood pressure readings were taken...

Commentary on: Bangalore S, Ogedegbe G, Gyamfi J, et al.. Outcomes with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors vs other antihypertensive agents in hypertensive blacks. Am J Med 2015;128:1195–203. Context Hypertension affects one-third of the world's population and remains a leading cause of myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, renal failure and death. Although hypertension control has improved,1 the prevalence is increasing due to an ageing population, rising obesity and a shift towards western lifestyles and disease patterns in low-income and middle-income countries. Hypertension is now also a major contr...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Atherosclerosis is accelerated in patients with different stages of chronic renal failure. Renal dysfunction predicts mortality in patients with myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. Less is known about the impact of renal dysfunction on mortality after ischemic stroke. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of renal dysfunction on 1-year mortality. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All 390 patients (207 men and 183 women) suffered from ischemic stroke in 1-year period were included in our study. Telephonic follow-up after 1 year was performed. The mean age of our patients w...
