BACKGROUND: The 2016 US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines for primary prevention statin therapy are more restrictive than the 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines. There are important differences in how application of the risk thresholds from these guidelines would impact particular segments of the US population. METHODS: Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES - 2005-14) were used to determine statin eligibility across age, gender and racial/ethnic groups using criteria from the 2013 ACC/AHA and 2016 USPSTF guidelines...

IMPORTANCE: Residency applicants often use social media to discuss the positive and negative features of prospective training programs. An examination of the content discussed by applicants could provide guidance for how medical education faculty can better engage with prospective trainees and adapt to meet the educational expectations of a new generation of digital-native physicians. OBJECTIVE: To identify unstructured social media data submitted by residency applicants and categorize positive and negative statements to determine key themes DESIGN: Qualitative analysis of a retrospective cohort SETTING: Publically available data sets PARTICIPANTS: Anonymized medical trainees applying to residency training positions in nine specialties: dermatology, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, plastic surgery, otolaryngology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pediatrics, and radiology from 2007 to 2017...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of cancer upon a patient's depletion of net worth and incursion of debt in the U.S. METHODS: This longitudinal study used the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) from 1998-2014. Persons ≥50 years with newly-diagnosed malignancies were included, excluding minor skin cancers. Multivariable generalized linear models were employed to assess changes in net worth and debt (consumer, mortgage, home equity) at two-and four-years following diagnosis (Year+2 , Year+4 ) after controlling for demographic and clinically-related variables, cancer-specific attributes, economic factors, and mortality...

BACKGROUND: Drinking coffee can raise public health problems, but the association between coffee and kidney disease is unknown. We studied whether coffee intake can affect the development of chronic kidney disease in the general population. METHODS: We analyzed 8717 subjects with normal renal function recruited from the KoGES cohort. Based on food frequency questionnaire, coffee consumption was categorized into five groups: 0/week, <1 cup/week, 1-6 cups/week, 1 cup/day, and ≥2 cups/day...

BACKGROUND: Immortal time bias is a possible confounding factor in cohort studies. In this investigation, we assessed mortality with inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in unstable patients with pulmonary embolism using a design that eliminated immortal time bias. METHODS: Data are from Premier Healthcare Database, 2010-2014. International Classification of Disease-9th Clinical Modification codes were used. Unstable patients with pulmonary embolism and an admitting diagnosis of pulmonary embolism as well as a primary diagnosis of pulmonary embolism were included...

BACKGROUND: The Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) was a randomized controlled trial which studied 9361 adults aged 50 and older with systolic blood pressure above 130mmHg and one or more cardiovascular risk factor. Patients were randomized to intensive (≤ 120mmHg) or standard (≤ 140mmHg) systolic targets. In August 2016, a limited dataset was released for secondary analysis. We hypothesized that excessive lowering of diastolic blood pressure could cause harm. Using the data from SPRINT, we sought to determine whether the development of diastolic hypotension during treatment was associated with adverse outcomes...

Psoriasis is a chronic, immune-mediated disorder that affects approximately 7.5 million people in the United States. Individuals with psoriasis may develop cutaneous, articular, and systemic manifestations, which are a source of significant morbidity, heighted risk of mortality. Moreover, and adversely impact patient-reported quality of life.
