Antigen-specific humoral responses against Helicobacter pylori in patients with systemic sclerosis
In conclusion, anti-Hp Abs are neither more frequent nor elevated in SSc compared with healthy population, the only exception being the higher frequency and levels of anti-VacA Abs in pulmonary hypertension and lung fibrosis, respectively. These results suggest that Hp is unlikely to b e involved in the development of SSc.

Despite advances in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) technology, right ventricular failure (RVF) continues to be a complication after implantation. Most patients undergoing LVAD implantation have underlying right ventricular (RV) dysfunction (either as a result of prolonged LV failure or systemic disorders) that becomes decompensated post-implantation. Additional insults include intra-operative factors or a sudden increase in preload in the setting of increased cardiac output. The current literature estimates post-LVAD RVF from 3.9% to 53% using a diverse set of definitions. A few of the risk factors that have been id...
HIGH blood pressure symptoms can be difficult to spot, but may include chest pain, finding blood in your urine, and having severe headaches. You could also be at risk of deadly hypertension if you develop this sign in your eyes. Should you check your blood pressure?

Abstract The purpose of the study was to identify patient characteristics related to blood loss following high tibial osteotomy (HTO). We evaluated 48 patients undergoing HTO from August 2018 to August 2019. The data of 48 patients were collected, including gender, age, height, weight, body mass index (BMI), smoking, alcohol consumption, hypertension, diabetes, history of aspirin, and pre-postoperative hematocrit (Hct). Multiple linear regression analysis was used to analyze the risk factors related to blood loss in HTO. The mean age of patients was 56.6 ± 10.2 years, including 22 males and 26 females. The ...

CONCLUSION: In hypertensive and diabetic patients, higher OPG values were associated with impaired LA function assessed by 2D-STE. In this high-risk patient group, serum OPG can be used as a risk predictor for LA mechanical dysfunction. PMID: 32462219 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
