From self-care behaviours to cardiometabolic risks prevention for the health of farmers: Nursing implications
CONCLUSION: The farmers in this study had a high prevalence of cardiometabolic risks, a high probability of stroke, inadequate number of remaining teeth and poor oral hygiene behaviours. These findings can provide evidence to develop health promotion programmes for farmers.IMPACT: This study demonstrates the health needs of farmers. We strongly recommend that community nurses empower farmers to engage in self-care behaviours through tailored health promotion programmes. For instance, by discussing cardiometabolic risk prevention from the farmers' perspectives to improve their health literacy.PMID:36695405 | DOI:10.1111/jan.15571

Exploring Stroke Risk Factors and Outcomes in Sexual and Gender Minority People
Discussion SGM people may have different risk factors, different mechanisms of stroke, and higher risk of recurrent stroke compared with non-SGM people. Standardized collection of sexual orientation and gender identity would enable larger studies to further understand disparities, leading to secondary prevention strategies.

Dr. Migliore I step off the subway, up the elevator, and up several flights of stairs. There’s a homeless man there who always uses the last stair of the lower staircase as a tray for his food. And by tray, I mean he sets his half-eaten rice burrito directly onto the step and picks around at it while I imagine the guacamole is mixing with Hep B and C. diff and MRSA. He looks up at me, I promise myself for the 100th time I’m going to start carrying cash or Kind bars or something; I give him my best sheepish face, and emerge at street level. I walk toward my hospital and pass a gentleman who sits on a ledge next to the ...

Hepatitis C Infection as a Risk Factor for Hypertension and Cardiovascular Diseases: An EpiTer Multicenter Study
J Clin Med. 2022 Sep 1;11(17):5193. doi: 10.3390/jcm11175193.ABSTRACTHepatitis C infection is one of the main reasons for liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. In recent years, more and more is being heard about extrahepatic manifestations of the hepatitis C infection including its possible influence on the development of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. In the given work, the frequency analysis of the incidence of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases among 2898 HCV-infected patients treated in Poland and the assessment of their relevance to the HCV genotype and the progression of liver fibrosis can be...

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Stroke in Transgender Adults
AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo identify the current state of science on stroke in transgender adults and highlight gaps in need of further research. We will review current research on cerebrovascular risk and disease, hormone therapy, and stroke in transgender individuals. Finally, we will provide a framework for healthcare providers to prevent and reduce disparities through inclusive care practices.Recent FindingsTransgender people experience unique stroke risk factors, secondary to both psychosocial stress and health-related behaviors. These include higher rates of HIV, tobacco use, stimulant use, and hepatitis C. The use o...

Impact of DAA Treatment on Cardiovascular Disease Risk in Chronic HCV Infection: An Update
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a systemic disease associated with multiple significant extrahepatic manifestations. Emerging studies indicate association between the HCV infection and a higher incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events such as: coronary artery disease, heart failure, stroke and peripheral artery disease, when compared to general population. Atherosclerosis is a common pathophysiologic mechanism of cardiovascular disease (CVD) development which is the leading cause of mortality in the Western world. Proposed mechanisms of HCV-induced atherosclerosis includes systemic inflammation due to the chro...

Neurological complications of hepatitis C infections.
Abstract Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a highly prevalent systemic disease, which can cause a variety of neurological complications. The HCV-associated symptoms can be differentiated into central and peripheral nervous systems as well as the musculature. Important pathomechanisms are HCV-associated autoimmunity (e.g. mixed cryoglobulinemia with polyneuropathy) and direct neurotoxic effects of the virus (e.g. HCV-associated cognitive deficits). Distal symmetric polyneuropathies, small fiber neuropathies and cognitive deficits are the most prevalent neurological manifestations. Furthermore, HCV infe...

Heart transplants from donors with hepatitis C may be safe and could help decrease organ shortage
(American Heart Association) One-year survival was 90% for adults with severe heart failure who received a heart transplant from a donor with hepatitis C, which was nearly identical to those who received a heart from donors who did not have hepatitis C (91%). Rates of organ rejection, stroke and kidney dialysis were similar between the two groups. More research is needed to assess longer-term results, however, increased use of hearts from donors with hepatitis C could help overcome the national shortage of donor organs.

Erratum: The burden of hepatitis C infection in a Southern Brazilian State
In this report, we present a series of three cases of snakebites that evolved with hemorrhagic stroke due to delays in the access to antivenom in the Brazilian Amazon, being fundamental for diagnosis to validate the clinical suspicion and make decisions that would improve the treatment and prognosis of the patients.

Insomnia as an Independent Predictor of Incident Cardiovascular Disease in HIV: Data From the Veterans Aging Cohort Study
Background: Insomnia is associated with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in the general population and is highly prevalent in people with HIV. The CVD risk conferred by insomnia in the HIV population is unknown. Methods: Using the Veterans Aging Cohort Study Survey Cohort, insomnia symptoms were measured and dummy coded with the item, “Difficulty falling or staying asleep?” (5-point scale from no difficulty to bothers a lot). Incident CVD event ICD-9 codes (acute myocardial infarction, stroke, or coronary artery revascularization) were identified with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Medicare...
