Association of inter-arm systolic blood pressure difference (IASBPD) with cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality remains controversial. We aimed to thoroughly examine all available evidence on inter-limb blood pressure (BP) difference and its association with CV risk and outcomes. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, Cochrane library, and Ovid for(More)
Authors aimed to compare efficacy and safety of prasugrel, ticagrelor, and standard-dose (SD) and high-dose (HD) clopidogrel in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PubMed, EMBASE, CENTRAL, and clinicaltrials.gov were searched for studies comparing prasugrel, ticagrelor, SD and HD clopidogrel in patients undergoing PCI. Frequentist(More)
BACKGROUND In-stent restenosis (ISR) remains a difficult problem in interventional cardiology. The relative efficacy and safety of available interventions is not clear. We aimed to perform a network meta-analysis using both direct evidence and indirect evidence to compare all available interventions. METHODS AND RESULTS We systematically searched(More)
In target tracking applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), one of the important but overlooked issues is the estimation of mobility behavior of a target inside a coverage hole. The existing approaches are restricted to networks with effective coverage by wireless sensors. Additionally, those works implicitly considered that a target does not change(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors aimed to conduct first systematic review and meta-analysis in STEMI patients evaluating vascular access site failure rate, fluoroscopy time, door to balloon time and contrast volume used with transradial vs transfemoral approach (TRA vs TFA) for PCI. METHODS The PubMed, CINAHL, clinicaltrials.gov, Embase and CENTRAL databases were(More)
Tothe Editors: Kantor et al. studied an important challenge in hospital medicine practice. However, failure to document pending test results in the discharge summary and to communicate with primary physicians is just the tip of the iceberg. A survey of hospitalists, junior residents, and primary care physicians in two tertiary care academic hospitals(More)
TO THE EDITOR: Opioid prescribing has undoubtedly increased over the past several decades. As Chou and colleagues' review (1) details, improving risk mitigation strategies for negative outcomes from long-term opioid use is likely warranted. The authors highlight an absence of adequate scientific evidence on long-term opioid therapy and note that this(More)
