Clinical features and surgical outcomes of type A intramural hematoma.

Conclusions: Our strategy had got low mortality and excellent mid-term survival in patients with type A IMH. Therefore, our strategy was suitable for the surgical repair of type A IMH in Chinese population. PMID: 32944308 [PubMed]

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is strongly linked to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and both of these conditions contribute to poor cardiovascular outcomes. We evaluated the impact of renal failure on major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in AF, and predictive value of the 2MACE score in this post-hoc analysis of the AMADEUS trial. The primary endpoint was MACE (composite of myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularisation and cardiovascular mortality). Secondary endpoints included the composite of stroke, major bleeding and non-cardiovascular mortality, and each of the specific outcomes separately.

This study aimed to estimate the association between fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and a spectrum of deaths among CKD patients. We took leverage of the Elderly Health Service cohort (n = 66,820), a large Hong Kong elderly cohort followed up till 2010. A total of 902 CKD incident patients in the cohort were identified during the follow-up period. We estimated yearly PM2.5 at the residential address for each CKD patient based on a satellite-based spatiotemporal model. We used Cox proportional hazards models with attained age as the underlying timescale to assess the association between long-term exposure to PM2.5...

Authors: Wang Z, Gong Y, Fan F, Yang F, Qiu L, Hong T, Huo Y Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the optimal revascularization strategy for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the drug-eluting stent (DES) era.Methods: One hundred and twelve patients with ESRD treated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were enrolled from 2007 to 2017. All patients were dialysis-dependent, of which 26 received CABG and 86 underwent PCI. The primary endpoint was all-cause mortality. Secondary endpoints were major adverse cardiovascular even...

Authors: Sun HJ Abstract Arterial hypertension remains to be a serious problem with considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide in the present age. Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, myocardial infarction, renal failure, and heart failure. Hypertensive nephropathy is the second leading cause of death in chronic kidney disease (CKD) around the world. Long-time hypertension loading results in renal interstitial fibrosis, which is associated with aberrant activation of renal fibroblasts and excessive generation of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Increasing evidence ...

Conclusion: Our findings describe the most reported risk factors for preventability of oral anticoagulant-induced bleedings. These factors may be useful for targeting interventions to improve pharmacovigilance activities in our regional territory and to reduce the burden of medication errors and inappropriate prescription. Introduction Oral anticoagulant therapy is widely used for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, or for the prevention and treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (Raj et al., 1994; Monaco et al., 2017). Oral anticoagulants can be di...

O'Halloran* Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, College of Medicine and Health, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland Renal sensory nerves are important in the regulation of body fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, and blood pressure. Activation of renal mechanoreceptor afferents triggers a negative feedback reno-renal reflex that leads to the inhibition of sympathetic nervous outflow. Conversely, activation of renal chemoreceptor afferents elicits reflex sympathoexcitation. Dysregulation of reno-renal reflexes by suppression of the inhibitory refle...

Few studies have investigated the risk of physiological sequelae in living kidney donors (KDs). We conducted a population-based cohort study using the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, which covers more than 99% of citizens. We comprehensively investigated the risk of medical disorders after kidney donation in living KDs using a maximum follow-up of 13 years. From January 1997 to December 2010, 1081 living KDs and 1082 age- and sex-matched non-KDs were eligible. Primary outcomes comprised end-stage renal disease, chronic kidney disease, stroke, cancer, acute myocardial infarction, acute renal failure ...

This study examined influenza vaccination in patients with SCD as a potential marker of quality of care delivery. The study population included black individuals aged 1 to =1 diagnosis of stroke, TIA or epilepsy/recurrent seizures); cardio pulmonary complications (>=1 diagnosis of chronic pulmonary heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, malaise and fatigue, edema, chest pain or hypoxemia); kidney disease (>=1 diagnosis of chronic kidney disease/renal failure, proteinuria), avascular necrosis or ulcer of lower limbs (adapted from Afenyi-Annan, 2008, Candrilli. 2011, Elmariah. 2014). A total of 1544 patients with SCD w...

Renal failure and haemodialysis are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Patients undergoing renal transplantation undergo rigorous pre-operative vascular assessment, including optimisation of risk factors for stroke. The indication for carotid intervention and the threshold for carotid endarterectomy in asymptomatic patients with incidental carotid disease has not been clarified in the context chronic kidney disease (CKD). This review aims to analyse outcomes following carotid endarterectomy in patients with CKD, in order to ascertain whether general guidelines for carotid artery revascularisation ...
