REVIEW

Angioedema is a self-limiting edema of the subcutaneous or submucosal tissues due to localised increase of microvascular permeability whose mediator may be histamine or bradykinin. Patients present to emergency department when angioedema involves oral cavity and larynx (life-threatening conditions) or gut (mimicking an acute abdomen). After initial evaluation of consciousness and vital signs to manage breathing and to support circulation if necessary, a simple approach can be applied for a correct diagnosis and treatment...

REVIEW

Internal medicine is an appropriate example of specialties in which to teach learners clinical reasoning skills, decision-making, and analytical thinking, as well as evidence-based, patient-oriented medicine. During daily clinical work, general internists always encounter a multitude of situations that lend themselves to educating medical trainees in ambulatory and inpatient settings. Application of existing learning theories to teaching has been shown to optimize teaching ability and to maximize the efficiency of teaching efforts...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with non ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) present a worse prognosis compared to those without PAD. We sought to describe contemporary trends of in-hospital management and outcome of patients admitted for NSTE-ACS with associated PAD. METHODS: We analyzed data from 6 Italian nationwide registries, conducted between 2001 and 2014, including consecutive NSTE-ACS patients. RESULTS: Out of 15,867 patients with NSTE-ACS enrolled in the 6 registries, 2226 (14...

BACKGROUND: Small observational studies and case reports have indicated that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may cause hyponatremia. Whether there is a difference between the individual PPIs is yet unknown. Since PPIs are one of the most commonly prescribed groups of drugs, even a rare adverse reaction may have large implications. The objective was to study the association between PPIs and hospitalization due to hyponatremia. METHODS: This register-based case-control study was based on the general Swedish population...

BACKGROUND: Frailty is highly prevalent in older persons and associated with negative health-related events and costs. Despite successful clinical trials, translation of evidence into implementation of dedicated programs has been scarce. This is probably due to funding limitations and lack of generalizability of rigid schemes adopted in controlled studies. We propose a guidance to implement complex interventions against frailty in the community, and describe the design and early findings of the +AGIL Barcelona program...

BACKGROUND: To compare trends in incidence, clinical characteristics and outcomes of heart failure (HF) hospitalizations among patients with or without type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in Spain (2001-2015). METHODS: We used national hospital discharge data to select hospital admissions for HF as primary diagnosis. Incidence, comorbidities, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and in hospital mortality (IHM) were analyzed. RESULTS: We identified a total of 1,501,811 admissions for HF (36...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHE) is time consuming in clinical practice. Recently, a new diagnostic tool - the simplified Animal Naming Test (S-ANT1) - was presented with promising results in an Italian cohort. The aim of the present study was to validate S-ANT1 in a cohort of cirrhotic patients from a German tertiary referral centre. METHODS: 143 cirrhotic patients and 37 healthy controls were enrolled. Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) grade 1 (HE1) was clinically diagnosed according to the West-Haven Criteria...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the health effects associated with the exposure to ground-level of particulate matters with aerodynamic diameter ≤ 2.5 μm (PM2.5 ) on citizens in Rome (Italy) in 2015 and 2016. Based on the new version of the World Health Organization's AirQ+ model, we have estimated the short- and long-term effects of PM2.5 on hospital admissions due to cardiovascular (HA-CVD) and respiratory diseases (HA-RD) as well as on mortality for ischemic heart disease (M-IHD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (M-COPD)...

AIMS: To analyze national trends in the rates of hospitalizations (all-cause and by principal discharge diagnosis) in total diabetic population of Spain. METHODS: We carried out a nation-wide population-based study of all diabetic patients hospitalized between 1997 and 2010. All-cause hospitalizations, hospitalizations by principal discharge diagnosis, mean age, Charlson Comorbidity Index, readmission rates and length of hospital stay were examined. Annual rates adjusted for age and sex were analyzed and trends were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Among patients presenting with pulmonary embolism (PE), those with diabetes are at increased risk to die than those without diabetes. The reasons have not been identified. We used the RIETE (Registro Informatizado Enfermedad Trombo Embólica) database to compare the mortality rate and the causes of death during anticoagulation in patients with PE according to the presence or absence of diabetes. METHODS: A matched retrospective cohort study from consecutively enrolled patients in RIETE, from 179 hospitals in 24 countries...
