Cardiovascular Disease, Drug Therapy, and Mortality in Covid-19
TLDR
Previous observations suggesting that underlying cardiovascular disease is associated with an increased risk of in-hospital death among patients hospitalized with Covid-19 were confirmed, and the results did not confirm previous concerns regarding a potential harmful association of ACE inhibitors or ARBs in this clinical context. Expand
Comparative morphology of rodent vestibular periphery. I. Saccular and utricular maculae.
TLDR
The population of calretinin-stained calyx afferents was used to delineate and quantify the striolar region in six rodent species and a power law function was constructed describing this relationship. Expand
RETRACTED: Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis
TLDR
A multinational registry analysis of the use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19 found each drug regimens was associated with decreased in-hospital survival and an increased frequency of ventricular arrhythmia during hospitalisation. Expand
Comparative morphology of rodent vestibular periphery. II. Cristae ampullares.
TLDR
A power law function is constructed describing the relationship between crista surface area and body weight and additional data on vestibular end organ dimensions from the literature is obtained to construct this function. Expand
Epidemiology of aortic aneurysm repair in the United States from 2000 to 2010.
TLDR
Lower mortality rates and shorter LOS despite a 27%-36% higher cost of care continues to justify the use of EVAR over OAR, and EVAR should be the preferred management of both ruptured and unruptured AAAs. Expand
Retraction: Cardiovascular Disease, Drug Therapy, and Mortality in Covid-19. N Engl J Med. DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa2007621.
TLDR
The raw data could not be made available to a third-party auditor and the authors were not granted access to the raw data, so the primary data sourness cannot be validated. Expand
Surgical site infections after lower extremity revascularization procedures involving groin incisions.
TLDR
The incidence of postoperative surgical site complications after lower extremity revascularization procedures involving a groin incision was 31% and was significantly associated with blood transfusion, postoperative seroma or hematoma, dyslipidemia, and statin usage. Expand
Intensive Care Unit Delirium
Intensive care unit (ICU) delirium is widespread and occurs in 20% to 80% of patients. It can be assessed with ICU-validated scoring tools. The most commonly used tools include the ConfusionExpand
Carotid endarterectomy national trends over a decade: does sex matter?
TLDR
In this decade-long national population-based study of hospitalized patients undergoing CEA, women had lower perioperative cardiac morbidity and mortality rates than men, and there was no discernible difference in timing of CEA based on sex. Expand
Impact of consensus statements and reimbursement on vena cava filter utilization.
TLDR
There is a temporal association between the societal guidelines' recommendations regarding VCF placement and the actual rates of insertion and more uniform consensus statements from multiple societies along with the use of level I evidence may be required to lead to a definitive change in practice.
