RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI[1] major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...

AbstractHigh-risk PE can be complicated by the presence of a patent foramen ovale (PFO), which can lead to paradoxical systemic embolization, including cerebral embolism ultimately leading to acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Acute management is challenging given the competing benefits and risks of systemic thrombolysis. Herein, we aim to provide a review of clinical presentations, diagnostic findings, and treatment and outcome from the available literature, with the hopes of providing insight into treatment options. We followed the guidelines outlined by the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (P...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has become a common treatment strategy with increasing clinical experience and technological advances in recent years.1,2 According to the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) data, 45,299 adult patients with cardiac, pulmonary and extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) were treated with ECMO in 2019, and survival and discharge rates after ECMO gradually increased.3 ECMO can last for days or weeks. However, such complications as bleeding, stroke, delirium, acute renal failure, pulmonary embolism, displacement of cannulas, vascular perforation and lower extr...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Guidelines outlining the role of surgical embolectomy for acute pulmonary embolism remain consensus based, however recent outcomes have improved compared to traditional experiences. The purpose of this study was to examine contemporary outcomes of patients treated for acute pulmonary embolism on a nationwide scale. METHODS: Patients undergoing systemic thrombolysis, catheter-directed therapy, and surgical embolectomy for acute pulmonary embolism from 2010-2014 in the National Inpatient Sample were included. RESULTS: A total 58,974 patients with acute pulmonary embolism were included....

The objective of the present study was to determine whether patients with an active cannabis use disorder have an elevated risk of postoperative complications.Methods The authors conducted a retrospective population-based cohort study of patients undergoing elective surgery in the United States using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2006 to 2015. A sample of 4,186,622 inpatients 18 to 65 yr of age presenting for 1 of 11 elective surgeries including total knee replacement, total hip replacement, coronary artery bypass graft, caesarian section, cholecystectomy, colectomy, hysterectomy, breast surgery, hernia repair, lami...

There are over 36 million medical hospitalizations each year in the United States, with the majority being for acute medical illness.1 Cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, stroke and myocardial infarction are some of the most common indications for hospitalization and are additionally risk factors for venous thromboembolism.2 With over 900,000 patients suffering from venous thromboembolism each year, excess thrombosis causes a large medical and financial burden to patients and the health care system.

Authors: Aziz KT, Best MJ, Skolasky RL, Ponnusamy KE, Sterling RS, Khanuja HS Abstract Background: The number of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (herein, lupus) undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is increasing. There is disagreement about the effect of lupus on perioperative complication rates. We hypothesized that lupus would be associated with higher complication rates in patients who undergo elective primary THA or TKA. Methods: Records of more than 6.2 million patients from the National Inpatient Sample who underwent elective primary THA or TKA from 2000 to 2...

AbstractCardiac catheters are a vital tool in medicine due to their widespread use in many minimally invasive procedures. To aid in advancing the catheter within the patient's vasculature, many catheters are coated with a lubricious hydrophilic coating (HPC). Although HPCs benefit patients, their delamination during use is a serious safety concern. Adverse health effects associated with HPC delamination include pulmonary and myocardial embolism, embolic stroke, infarction, and death. In order to improve patient outcomes, more consistent manufacturing methods and improved quality assurance techniques are needed to evaluate ...
