BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate health-related quality of life (QOL), dyspnea and functional exercise capacity during the year following the diagnosis of a first episode of pulmonary embolism. METHODS: Prospective multicenter cohort study of 100 patients with acute pulmonary embolism recruited at 5 Canadian hospitals from 2010-2013. We measured the outcomes QOL (by SF-36 and PEmb-QOL measures), dyspnea (by the University of California San Diego Shortness of Breath Questionnaire (SOBQ)) and six-minute walk distance at Baseline, 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after acute pulmonary embolism...

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated long-term incidence of cancer after myocardial infarction among current, former and never smokers, and assessed whether reducing cigarette consumption is associated with decreased cancer risk. METHODS: Consecutive patients aged ≤65 years discharged from 8 hospitals in central Israel after first myocardial infarction in 1992-3 were followed for cancer and death. Extensive data including smoking habits were obtained at the index hospitalization and 4 time points during follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Although often recommended by experts, it is unclear if elevated troponin measurements have clinical utility in patients without chest pain or ischemic electrocardiographic changes. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to determine clinical utility, and downstream testing in patients with elevated troponin values but without chest pain or electrocardiographic changes. METHODS: We selected all patients aged 30-100 years hospitalized in cardiology and internal medicine departments from July 1, 2013 until July 31, 2016...

BACKGROUND: Most diabetes and cardiovascular studies have been conducted in white patients, with data being extrapolated to other population groups. METHODS: For this analysis, patient-level data were extracted from five randomized clinical trials in patients with acute coronary syndrome; we compared obesity levels between Asian and white populations, stratified by diabetes status. Using an adjusted Cox proportional hazards model, hazard ratios for cardiovascular outcomes following an acute coronary syndrome were determined...

REVIEW
Caitlin M Gibson, Shannon W Finks
Edoxaban is the most recently approved factor Xa inhibitor within the class of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). Like other DOACs, edoxaban was approved by the FDA for treatment of venous thromboembolism and prevention of stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Similar to other DOACs, edoxaban has fewer drug-drug interactions than warfarin and does not require routine laboratory monitoring. Unlike other DOACs, edoxaban has yet to be approved for secondary or postoperative venous thromboembolism thromboprophylaxis...

Childhood obesity is increasing in the United States; obese children are more likely to become obese adults with obesity-associated health issues. Effective programs designed to reduce the prevalence of childhood overweight and obesity are needed. We sought to review one such program, Project Healthy Schools (PHS), for key findings. PHS is a health curriculum that includes educational lessons, school environment changes, and health measurement. Data have shown improvement in numerous metrics post-program, including positive changes in physiologic measures and healthier lifestyle behaviors...
