Analysis of Risk Factors for Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Elderly Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).

Analysis of Risk Factors for Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Elderly Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Med Sci Monit. 2020 Jun 01;26:e922913 Authors: Xia W, Yang N, Li Y Abstract BACKGROUND The present research aimed to explore the risk factors for adverse cardiovascular events in elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) combined with NAFLD. MATERIAL AND METHODS We included 325 AMI patients hospitalized in the Department of Cardiology. AMI patients underwent emergency thrombolysis or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). AMI patients were classified into NAFLD group and non-NAFLD group. General clinical data, creatinine and myocardial enzyme, GRACE scores of AMI patients were evaluated and compared between two groups. Incidence of adverse cardiovascular events, including ECG instability, hemodynamic instability and death were evaluated. RESULTS Compared to patients in the non-NAFLD group, patients in the NAFLD group had remarkably lower proportions of diabetic patients (p=0.001), coronary heart disease (CHD) patients (p=0.027), and CABG/PCI patients (p

Authors: Skewes MC, Gonzalez VM, Gameon JA, FireMoon P, Salois E, Rasmus SM, Lewis JP, Gardner SA, Ricker A, Reum M Abstract American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities experience notable health disparities associated with substance use, including disproportionate rates of accidents/injuries, diabetes, liver disease, suicide, and substance use disorders. Effective treatments for substance use are needed to improve health equity for AI/AN communities. However, an unfortunate history of unethical and stigmatizing research has engendered distrust and reluctance to participate in research among many Native co...

Authors: Pérez-Gurbindo I, Angulo Carrere MT, Arribas Cobo P, Puerta M, Ortega M, Jaldo MT, de Sequera P, Alcázar R, Pérez-García R, Álvarez-Méndez AM Abstract INTRODUCTION: Postural balance is the result of a complex interaction of sensory input which keeps us upright. Haemodialysis patients have alterations which can lead to postural instability and a risk of falls. Our objective was to analyse postural stability and its relationship with the risk of falls in haemodialysis patients using a force platform. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a prospective cross-sectional st...

In conclusion, FGF21 belongs to a promising class of cytokines that are induced in response to stress and that can be used as a drug, drug target, or through a biomarker, depending on the physio-pathological context. All these findings will become clear when FGF21 will be used as a therapeutic molecule, exploiting the beneficial effects of FGF21 for treating metabolic disease or when it will be blocked to ameliorate disease progression and the onset of disease. Author Contributions CT and MS wrote the manuscript. VR contributed to the discussion. Funding This work was supported from the AFM-Telethon (19524), Italian Mi...

Conclusions: The lipidome is altered in ART-treated HIV infection, and may contribute to inflammation and CVD progression. Detailed lipidomic analyses may better assess CVD risk in both HIV+ and HIV– individuals than does traditional lipid profiling. Introduction Both HIV infection and the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) contribute to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) (1, 2). Dyslipidemia is observed in HIV-infected (HIV+) individuals, and is associated with reduced levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and elevated total (TC) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) chole...
