Prevalence of the age-related diseases in older patients with acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that a careful comprehensive geriatric assessment of acquired TTP patients is necessary. It is important to look for other autoimmune diseases and such age-related comorbidities as osteoporosis, arterial hypertension, ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease.

Impact of treatment strategies on long-term outcome of CTO patients.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusions (CTO) remains debated. Therefore the aim of this large-scale observational multi-center registry was to compare the long-term outcome of CTO patients undergoing different therapeutic approaches comparing successful CTO revascularization either by PCI or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), failed CTO-PCI and optimal medical therapy (OMT) alone. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 6630 CTO patients were enrolled from two high-volume centers to compare different treatment strategies. All procedures were performed by high-...

Statins and inflammatory bowel disease: Where do we stand?
Abstract Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder of the western world that is rapidly expanding in newly industrialized countries. Novel strategies are urgently needed to prevent and improve the treatment of this costly and disabling disease. Statins are the most commonly prescribed drugs worldwide. Besides their lipid-lowering effects, statins may exert complex immunomodulatory properties and multiple pleiotropic effects including the inhibition of T-cell activation, antigen-presenting function and leukocyte infiltration of target organs which might render statins as beneficial agents for infl...

Alcohol consumption and risk of incident atrial fibrillation: A population-based cohort study.
In this study, we investigated the association between low to moderate levels of alcohol consumption and AF risk in men and women. METHODS: We performed a population-based cohort study of 109,230 health examination participants in northern Sweden. Data regarding alcohol intake were obtained using a questionnaire administered at the health examination. Incident AF cases were identified from the Swedish National Patient Registry. RESULTS: AF was diagnosed in 5,230 individuals during a total follow-up of 1,484,547 person-years. Among men, AF risk increased over quartiles of weekly alcohol consumption (P for trend 0....

Acidosis predicts mortality independently from hyperlactatemia in patients with sepsis.
Abstract RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Acidosis and hyperlactatemia predict outcome in critically ill patients. We assessed BE and pH for risk prediction capabilities in a sub-group of septic patients in the MIMIC-III database. METHODS: Associations with mortality were assessed by logistic regression analysis in 5586 septic patients. Baseline parameters, lactate concentrations, pH, and BE were analyzed at baseline and after 6 hours. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: We combined acidosis (defined as either BE ≤-6 and/or pH ≤7.3) and hyperlactatemia and split the cohort into three subgroups: low-risk (no ac...

Impact of pre-hospital renal function on the detection of acute kidney injury in acute decompensated heart failure.
ual-Figal D Abstract BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a serious complication in patients hospitalized for decompensated heart failure (HF). Currently, AKI definitions consider creatinine levels at admission as reference of baseline renal function (RF). However, renal impairment may already be present at admission. We aimed to study the impact on AKI detection of considering outpatient RF as reference. METHODS: In a cohort of 458 patients hospitalized for decompensated HF, we studied the occurrence of AKI using the standardized KDIGO criteria and grading (stages: 1, 2, 3), and considering two different...

Inhalation therapy devices for the treatment of obstructive lung diseases: the history of inhalers towards the ideal inhaler.
Abstract Inhalation therapy allows conveying drugs directly into the airways. The devices used to administer inhaled drugs play a crucial role in the management of obstructive lung diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To ensure high bronchial deposition of the drug, a device should deliver a high proportion of fine particles, be easy to use, and provide constant and accurate doses of the active substance. Nowadays, four different types of inhalers are widely used: nebulizers, dry powder inhalers (DPIs), pressurized metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs), and soft mist inhalers (SMIs). N...
