AbstractBackgroundThe purpose of this study was to measure trends in the use of tranexamic acid (TXA) during delivery in the United States and to evaluate demographic data and morbidity outcomes among these patients.MethodsThis retrospective cohort study includes data from 19 hospitals in the Universal Health Services network. We compared rates of TXA use between January 2015 and June 2019 across geographic sectors. We also evaluated associations of demographic variables and perinatal outcomes of women who received TXA.Results209 cases of TXA use were found from analysis of 101,564 deliveries. TXA use increased over time a...

AbstractHeart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a complex heterogeneous disease for which our pathophysiological understanding is still limited and specific prevention and treatment strategies are lacking. HFpEF is characterised by diastolic dysfunction and cardiac remodelling (fibrosis, inflammation, and hypertrophy). Recently, microvascular dysfunction and chronic low-grade inflammation have been proposed to participate in HFpEF development. Furthermore, several recent studies demonstrated the occurrence of generalized lymphatic dysfunction in experimental models of risk factors for HFpEF, including obe...

AbstractThe Collaborative Care Model (CoCM), in which social workers, primary care physicians, and a consulting psychiatrist work as a team, is an established approach to the treatment of common mental health conditions in primary care settings. Following implementation of a CoCM depression care program at our hospital-based academic primary care practice, we observed a low rate of retention with the use of problem solving therapy/behavioral activation (PST/BA). Our aim in this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), an evidence-based, flexible strategy that focuses on the relationship...

AbstractObjectiveClinical and laboratory biomarkers to predict the severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are essential in this pandemic situation of which resource allocation must be urgently prepared especially in the context of respiratory support readiness. Lymphocyte count has been a marker of interest since the first COVID-19 publication. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis in order to investigate the association of lymphocyte count on admission and the severity of COVID-19. We would also like to analyze whether patient characteristics such as age and comorbidities affect the relationship betw...

AbstractRetinol-binding protein-4 (RBP-4) along with the lipid profile plays crucial roles in Acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The study aimed to investigate the correlation of RBP-4, lipoprotein combine index (LCI), and RBP-4  + LCI with ACS. 163 ACS and 77 non-CAD in patients were consecutively enrolled in this study. The serum level of RBP-4 was measured via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. LCI was calculated using the formula: total cholesterol × triglyceride × low-density lipoprotein cholesterol/high- density lipoprotein cholesterol. RBP-4 ≥4 ng/ml, LCI &ge...

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), an RNA betacoronavirus, is a novel respiratory pathogen whose ominous progression has been implicated in disease that ranges from respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) to multi-organ dysfunction.1,2 Among the most susceptible populations at risk for severe infection are patients with cardiovascular comorbidities, such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease, and cardiomyopathy, who have a higher representation among nonsurvivors.

Since its emergence in Wuhan City, China, the virus has rapidly spread across the globe causing calamitous health, economic and societal consequences. It causes disproportionately severe disease in the elderly and those with co-morbidities, such as hypertension and diabetes. There is currently no proven treatment ...

Authors: Panoulas V, Kitas GD Abstract Introduction: Cardiovascular comorbidity is a major burden in patients with chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases and a significant determinant of their outcome. In addition to optimal management of the underlying inflammatory condition according to current guidelines, individual cardiovascular risk factors, particularly dyslipidaemia, hypertension, and impaired glucose tolerance should be assessed regularly and guide risk stratification and requirement for treatment.Areas discussed: We critically reviewed manuscripts and guidelines on the pharmacological management of dysli...

AbstractAge-related metabolic and renal changes predispose older people to an increased risk of diabetes mellitus and diabetic kidney disease, respectively. As the prevalence of the ageing population is increasing, because of increased life expectancy, the prevalence of older people with diabetic kidney disease is likely to increase. Diabetic kidney disease is associated with an increased risk of adverse outcomes and increased costs to healthcare systems. The management includes promotion of a healthy lifestyle and control of cardiovascular risk factors such as hyperglycaemia, hypertension and dyslipidaemia. Older people a...

Cognition is an important function of the brain that enables us to acquire and process information, to enhance our understanding of thoughts, experiences, and our senses. Any condition that affects our ability to think, reason, memorize, or be attentive affects our cognitive ability. Some cognitive decline is a normal part of aging, but there are many things you can do to prevent or forestall cognitive changes as you age, including when planning for surgery. Older adults are having more surgical procedures As our population ages and medicine and healthcare advances, more older adults are likely to develop serious condition...
