Gender Differences and Mortality Trends After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation: A 10-Year Analysis From a Single Tertiary Center
CONCLUSION: Despite a higher STS score in women, 30-day mortality was not significantly different from men, while women present better clinical outcomes at long-term follow-up.PMID:33955846
ConclusionCardiovascular morbidity was increased in patients with TA attending primary care services in the UK. Treatment with statins and anti ‐platelets in these patients was suboptimal.
CONCLUSIONS: Multimorbid patients with ACS are at a greater risk for worse outcomes than their nonmultimorbid counterparts. Lack of consistent measurement makes interpretation of the impact of multimorbidity challenging and emphasizes the need for more research on multimorbidity's effects on postdischarge healthcare utilization.

Authors: Kirchner GJ, Lieber AM, Kim RY, Kerbel YE, Moretti VM, Nikkel LE Abstract INTRODUCTION: Girdlestone resection arthroplasty (GRA) is a radical but sometimes necessary treatment of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) of the hip. The purpose of this of this study was to identify the independent risk factors for GRA after PJI of the hip. METHODS: This is a retrospective, cross-sectional analysis of the National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample from 2010 to 2014. The International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) was used to identify 27,404 patients with PJI of the hi...
AbstractAimsA high prevalence of muscle wasting, that is, reduction in muscle mass, in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and heart failure (HF) has been reported. However, whether the association between PAD and muscle wasting is independent of shared risk factors such as diabetes mellitus has not been examined.Methods and resultsWe retrospectively enrolled 440 HF patients (mean age, 74 years; inter‐quartile range, 64–82 years; 52% male). Muscle wasting was defined as an appendicular skeletal muscle mass index (ASMI) of
ConclusionThe incidence of NF increased markedly from 2002 to 2017 although in-hospital mortality did not change. There was a gradual shift in the causative organisms from Gram-positive to Gram-negative.
Background: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and HIV are independently associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, the factors associated with NAFLD in persons living with HIV (PWH) and whether CVD is more frequent in PWH with NAFLD are currently unknown. Methods: From the Partners HealthCare Research Patient Data Registry, we identified PWH with and without NAFLD between 2010 and 2017. NAFLD was defined using validated histological or radiographic criteria. CVD was defined by an ICD-9 diagnosis of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, coronary revascularization, peripheral vascular diseas...
CONCLUSION: ICHRON predicted ChrD diagnosis at 3-years among an external, geographically distant validation cohort. These findings show the value of ICHRON for primary care patients in distinct locales. Additionally, electronic calculation of ICHRON empowers the clinical use of this tool to identify and differentially manage and treat high-risk patients.

In conclusion, careful monitoring of patients in the early stages of CKD would result in lower morbidity and mortality. These objectives can be achieved by implementing screening programs and early interventions. PMID: 32509001 [PubMed]
Conclusions. The key comorbidities that predict poorer 2-year survival outcomes after kidney transplantation have been identified in this large prospective cohort study. The findings will facilitate assessment of individual patient risks and evidence-based decision making.
e;ndez JL, Lozano FS, Suarez Fernández C Abstract INTRODUCTION: In this review, the role of the rivaroxaban-plus-aspirin approach (dual pathway inhibition - DPI) in patients with chronic coronary syndrome (CCS) and to perform practical recommendations about its use was updated. AREAS COVERED: The contents of this review were proposed in an expert meeting. To identify relevant articles, a systematic search of Medline/Embase was performed (to July 2019), using the key words "rivaroxaban", "vascular dose", "COMPASS" and "coronary artery disease" in the search strate...
