THE EFFECT OF CALCIUM CHANNEL Blockers ON moderate or severe ALBUMINURIA IN DIABETIC, HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized, Controlled Trials.

Am J Med 2020 Jul 6. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

Mount Sinai Heart, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA; Cardiology/Hypertension Research Program, James J. Peters V. A. Medical Center, Bronx, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Objectives: Inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin system are recommended for the management of albuminuria in patients with hypertension and diabetes mellitus, but there is little consensus about alternative therapies. Calcium channel blockers are recommended for the management of hypertension, but the data are controversial regarding their role in patients with albuminuria. This review was designed to assess the efficacy of calcium channel blockers compared to inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin system in decreasing albuminuria in diabetic, hypertensive patients with nephropathy.

Should we reintroduce previous venous thromboembolism into decision-making for anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation? Insights from a nationwide cohort.

Am J Med 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Aalborg Thrombosis Research Unit, Department of Clinical Medicine, Faculty of Health, Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark; Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science, University of Liverpool and Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital, Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Purpose: We aimed to investigate whether history of venous thromboembolism should be considered a prognostic factor for future thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Methods: This was a nationwide cohort study of patients with incident atrial fibrillation from 2000-2017, defined and characterized using Danish health registries. Cox regression analyses were used to calculate hazard ratios (95% confidence interval) for the outcomes 'ischemic stroke or systemic embolism' and 'ischemic stroke, systemic embolism, or venous thromboembolism' according to history of venous thromboembolism.

Levodopa Positively Affects Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration.

Am J Med 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Snyder Biomedical Corporation, Tucson, AZ 85712, USA; Department of Biomedical Engineering, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, 85721, USA.

Background: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common cause of blindness worldwide. Neovascular AMD (nAMD) is an advanced form of the disease, in which excess vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) induces growth of new blood vessels that leak fluid, accounting for 90% of vision loss in AMD. Dysfunction of the retinal pigment epithelium likely initiates AMD. Read More

Sex Differences in Outcomes after Myocardial Infarction in the Community.

Am J Med 2020 Jul 2. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota; Department of Health Sciences Research, Mayo Clinic. Electronic address:

Purpose: Prior studies observed that women experienced worse outcomes than men after myocardial infarction but did not convincingly establish an independent effect of female sex on outcomes, thus failing to impact clinical practice. Current data remain sparse and information on long-term non-fatal outcomes is lacking. To address these gaps in knowledge, we examined outcomes after incident myocardial infarction for women versus men. Read More

Getting Unstuck: Challenges and opportunities in caring for patients experiencing prolonged hospitalization while medically ready for discharge.

Am J Med 2020 Jun 30. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

University of Washington, School of Medicine, Department of Medicine; VA Puget Sound Healthcare System, Hospital and Specialty Medicine Service.

Many physicians care for patients who remain in the hospital for prolonged periods despite being 'medical ready' or stable for discharge. However, this phenomenon is not well defined and optimal strategies to address the problem are not known. A prolonged hospitalization past the point of medically necessity can harm patients, frustrate care teams, and is costly for the healthcare system. Read More

Section of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Boston Medical Center, Boston, MA, USA; Section of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, USA; Department of Epidemiology, Boston University School of Public Health, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: The opioid epidemic has been associated with an increase in hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections. Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) have a high burden of hepatitis C disease and could serve as venues to enhance testing and treatment.

Digoxin Initiation and Outcomes in Patients with Heart Failure (HFrEF and HFpEF) and Atrial Fibrillation.

Am J Med 2020 Jun 27. Epub 2020 Jun 27.

Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Washington, DC; Georgetown University, Washington, DC; George Washington University, Washington, DC. Electronic address:

Background: Digoxin reduces the risk of heart failure hospitalization but has no effect on mortality in patients with heart failure without atrial fibrillation in the randomized controlled trial setting. Observational studies of digoxin use in patients with atrial fibrillation have suggested a higher risk for poor outcomes. Less is known about this association in patients with heart failure and atrial fibrillation, the examination of which was the objective of the current study. Read More

Treatment of Left Ventricular Thrombus with Direct Oral Anticoagulants: A Retrospective Observational Study.

Am J Med 2020 Jun 26. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, NE, USA.

Background: There is limited data on the efficacy of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for the treatment of left ventricular thrombus. Currently, vitamin K antagonists (VKA) remain the preferred oral anticoagulant for left ventricular thrombus. In this retrospective study, we assessed the safety and efficacy of DOACs in comparison to VKA in patients with a new diagnosis of left ventricular thrombus. Read More

Electronic address:

Background: Although the association between autoimmune rheumatic diseases and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is well known, there is a lack of data regarding the role of such disorders in patients with premature and extremely premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Methods: The VITAL registry including patients with premature (males <55yrs, females <65yrs) and extremely premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (<40yrs), was created from the 2014-2015 nationwide VA health care system database. We assessed age at the time of first cardiovascular event to compare patients with premature (n=135,703) and those with extremely premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (n=7,716) with age-matched patients without atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (n=1,153,535, n=441,836).

Department of Cardiology, Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY.

Background: Acute pericarditis is a frequent cause of hospitalization in the United States. Although recurrence of this condition is common, few studies have investigated hospital readmissions in this patient population.

Methods: We queried the National Readmission Database for the years 2016 and 2017 to identify adult admissions for acute pericarditis, and analyzed the data for 30-day readmission. Read More

Use of Direct Oral Anticoagulants in the Treatment of Left Ventricular Thrombi, a Systematic Review.

Am J Med 2020 Jun 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Department of Cardiology, Hennepin Healthcare, Minneapolis, MN.

The off-label use of direct oral anticoagulants for the treatment of left ventricular thrombi has grown over the past years given the ease of administration, absence of a requirement for international normalized ratio (INR) monitoring, and freedom from dietary restrictions, however, the evidence for their safety and efficacy is contradictory. We systematically searched PubMed and Google Scholar from January 1, 2009 till April 25 for studies of direct oral anticoagulants for treatment of left ventricular thrombi. Fifty-three articles (of 1,168 patients) met our inclusion criteria. Read More
