BACKGROUND: Numerous risk prediction models use indicators of health to predict mortality in old age. The added value to mortality predictions based on demographic variables is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy of health indicators in predicting all-cause mortality among individuals aged 50+ using area under receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC). Specifically, to assess the added value of health indicators relative to demographic variables. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses...

The aim of this study was to construct and internally validate a scoring system to estimate the probability of death in hypertensive inpatients. Existing predictive models do not meet all the indications for clinical application because they were constructed in patients enrolled in clinical trials and did not use the recommended statistical methodology. This cohort study comprised 302 hypertensive patients hospitalized between 2015 and 2017 in Spain. The main variable was time-to-death (all-cause mortality)...

AIMS: This study aimed to evaluate the risk of bowel events among elderly patients treated using only PTGBD (Percutaneous Gallbladder Drainage), or a cholecystectomy on its own, or PTGBD combined with a subsequent cholecystectomy. METHODS: A retrospective population-based cohort study was conducted with newly diagnosed cholelithiasis and cholecystitis patients who had no bowel obstruction history and were aged over 65 years during the period of January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2010...

Most hematological malignancies are increasing in frequency with age. Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) is a potentially curative therapeutic option for patients with malignant and non-malignant hematological diseases. The treatment of elderly patients with advanced hematological malignancies has expanded to include reduced intensity conditioning allo-HCT. Physicians increasingly refer older patients for allo-HCT due to more experience and improved supportive care in allo-HCT. This review article discusses the available data regarding the feasibility, tolerability, toxicity, and effectiveness of allo-HCT in different hematological diseases in the elderly...

BACKGROUND: Infection is one of the main reasons for hospitalization worldwide, and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. It is unclear whether this association is modified by the presence of reduced renal function. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and cardiovascular mortality in patients hospitalized with infection. METHODS: This cohort study included all adult, incident patients who were hospitalized at one of four hospitals in China between 2012 and 2015, had a discharge diagnosis of infection, and had a serum creatinine measurement at admission...

BACKGROUND: Recent Korean data suggest a high prevalence of overt disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and a good predictive performance of the ISTH DIC score in successfully resuscitated out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesised that in a European cohort of resuscitated out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients the prevalence of DIC is substantially lower. Furthermore, the determination of D-dimer levels at admission, but not the DIC score, could improve mortality prediction above traditional predictors...

BACKGROUND: Frailty and multimorbidity are both strongly associated with poor health-related outcomes, including mortality. Being multimorbidity one of the major determinants of frailty, we aimed to explore whether, and to what extent, frailty without multimorbidity plays an independent role in shortening life. METHODS: We used data from the Swedish National Study on Aging and Care in Kungsholmen (SNAC-K). Among the 3363 adults aged 60+ enrolled at baseline, those without multimorbidity (i...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia and its prevalence increases with age. There is a significant correlation between frailty, morbidity and mortality in elderly patients with cardiovascular disease, but the relation between AF and frailty is still under debate. The aim of this study is to systematically review evidence on the association between AF and frailty. A systematic review of articles published between 02/01/2002 and 09/28/2017 according to PRISMA recommendations was carried out...

BACKGROUND: The association between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and functional status may change as a function of the equation used to estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). We reviewed the predictive value of different eGFR equations in regard to frailty and disability outcomes. METHODS: We searched Pubmed from inception to March 2018 for studies investigating the association between eGFR and self-reported and/or objective measures of frailty or disability...
