ConclusionASA scores are routinely assessed in clinical practice and predict a wide range of postoperative complications among hip fracture patients. Since many complications may be preventable through adequate drug treatment, rehabilitation, and risk awareness, future studies should examine the mechanisms linking ASA scores to complication risk in order to improve preventive strategies. Particularly, the high risk of cardiovascular complications among patients with high ASA scores deserves clinical and scientific attention.

Discussion Child abuse or non-accidental trauma is a clinical diagnosis. It is the constellation of history, physical examination, radiographic evaluation, laboratory testing and investigation that determines if child abuse has occurred. Irritability caused by fractures or other trauma can be a presenting symptom of abuse. Fractures can be a presentation but they are also common problems not associated with abuse. Femoral shaft fractures are estimated to account for only 1.6% of all fractures in children, therefore they are potentially more suspicious for child abuse. A review of femur fractures can be found here. A review...

Purpose of review This review discusses current evidence and future perspectives for use of SLT2 inhibitors in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs). Recent findings Sodium-Glucose-Transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) lower plasma glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes, and protect against heart failure and progression of chronic kidney disease by a glucose-independent mechanism. Most of the current studies with SGLT2is in kidney transplant patients are however short-term retrospective case studies. These, together with one small randomized clinical trial, show that SGLT2is lower glucose also in KTRs with type 2 d...

Abstract: Sodium–glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors showed benefit in patients with heart failure. In this updated meta-analysis, we evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of SGLT-2 inhibitors in patients with heart failure. Different electronic databases were searched to find relevant articles. RevMan 5.4 was used for pooling data using a random/fixed-effects model, complemented by several sensitivity and subgroup analyses. A total of 13 randomized clinical trials including 14,618 patients with heart failure were included in analysis among 6797 studies screened. The overall mortality rate was 12.4...

EMPEROR-Preserved Clinical Trial is an important study which has shown benefit in patients with heart failure and a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) [1]. It was a double blind randomized trial in which 5988 patients with class II-IV heart failure and ejection fraction above 40% were allocated to receive empagliflozin 10 mg daily or placebo, in addition to usual therapy. The median ejection fraction noted in the study patients was 54%, with two thirds of patients having a left ventricular ejection fraction of 50% or more. Primary outcome measure in the study was a composite of cardiovascular death or hospitalization for...

AbstractObjectivesTo investigate the association between pre-admission waiting time and postoperative complications, length of stay (LOS), and costs during hospitalization.MethodThis was a single-center, observational study. The subjects of this study were elderly hip fracture patients who were admitted to the Department of Orthopedics, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, from December 2010 to June 14, 2017, and that underwent internal fixation or joint replacement surgery. The pre-admission waiting time was treated as a categorical variable according to median and first quartile values. Outcomes included postoperativ...
