Physician Specialty and Office Visits Made by Adults With Diagnosed Multiple Chronic Conditions: United States, 2014-2015.

CONCLUSIONS: Awareness of these findings may help specialists improve care for adults with MCCs. The recognition among physicians of common MCC dyads is relevant to the care management of persons with MCCs. PMID: 32267823 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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]

AbstractChanges in neurovascular coupling are associated with both Alzheimer ’s disease and vascular dementia in later life, but this may be confounded by cerebrovascular risk. We hypothesized that hemodynamic latency would be associated with reduced cognitive functioning across the lifespan, holding constant demographic and cerebrovascular risk. In 387 adults aged 18–85 (mean = 48.82), dynamic causal modeling was used to estimate the hemodynamic response function in the left and right V1 and V3-ventral regions of the visual cortex in response to a simple checkerboard block design stimulus with mi...

AbstractDespite an enormous improvement in heart failure management during the last decades, the hospitalization and mortality rate of heart failure patients still remain very high. Clinical inertia, defined as the lack of treatment intensification in a patient not at evidence-based goals for care, is an important underlying cause. Clinical inertia is extensively described in hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus, but increasingly recognized in heart failure as well. Given the well-established guidelines for the management of heart failure, these are still not being reflected in clinical practice. While the absolute ma...

Conclusions: There is shortage of data from prospective studies which could confirm the benefits of early treatment initiation based on the presence of the subclinical organ damage in T1DM. Most evidence comes from T2DM trials, where effective preventive measures were identified i.e.: smoking cessation, reasonable blood glucose control, efficacious hypertension treatment, and dyslipidemia management, as well as renoprotection. There is still a field for further research to see if routine assessment of asymptomatic vascular damage and early implementation of aggressive treatment would reduce mortality excess from CVD in T1D...

This study includes the measures of self-reported PA (International Physical Activity Questionnaire) and self-rated vision at three points in time over a 6-year period used in the Irish Longitudinal study of Ageing, a cohort of community-dwelling older adults (50 years or older). A path analysis found that PA was indirectly associated with vision over 6 years controlling for age, sex, marital status, employment, education, depression (Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale), self-reported general health, cardiovascular disease (e.g., heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes, eye disease (e.g., glau...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate the rate of readmissions for postpartum venous thromboembolism (VTE) during the first 30 days postdelivery between women with and without the immediate postpartum insertion of the etonogestrel contraceptive implant. METHODS: The Nationwide Readmissions Database from 2016 was used to identify women with a singleton delivery, immediate postpartum insertion of the etonogestrel contraceptive implant, and readmission for VTE within 30 days of discharge. Those with a prior history of VTE or anticoagulant therapy were excluded. These women were compared with the number of women readmi...

Abstract An Uncommon Cause of Arterial Hypertension Abstract. A 54-year-old patient was suffering from arterial hypertension, which was not treated sufficiently despite an antihypertensive therapy with three different types of drugs. In addition, the patient complained an increase in weight of ten kilos during the last year and a new onset of diabetes mellitus type 2. Investigations as to secondary forms of hypertension by MRI revealed an adrenal tumor with a diameter of approx. 6 cm suspect for an adrenal carcinoma. An ACTH-independent cushing syndrome was diagnosed by 24-hour urines collection, 1-mg dexamethason...
