Vitamin K antagonists (VKA) are the most widely used anticoagulants in the world. An appropriate management of treated patients is crucial for their efficacy and safety. The prospective, observational, multicenter, inception-cohort FCSA-START Register, a branch of START Register (NCT02219984) included VKA-treated patients managed by centers of Italian Federation of anticoagulation clinics (AC). Baseline patient characteristics and data during treatment were analyzed and compared with those of ISCOAT study, performed by the Federation and published in 1996/7...

REVIEW

Laparotomy remains the gold standard for diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI), but is often unhelpful or too late due to non-specific clinical and radiological signs. This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the novel serological biomarkers intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (I-FABP), α-glutathione S-transferase (α-GST), D-lactate, ischemia modified albumin (IMA), and citrulline to detect AMI. A systematic search of electronic databases was performed to identify all published diagnostic accuracy studies on I-FABP, α-GST, D-lactate, IMA, and citrulline...

REVIEW

The emergency management of acute severe bleeding in trauma patients has changed significantly in recent years. In particular, greater attention is now being devoted to a prompt assessment of coagulation alterations, which allows for immediate haemostatic resuscitation procedures when necessary. The importance of an early trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) diagnosis has led physicians to increase the efforts to better understand the pathophysiological alterations observed in the haemostatic system after traumatic injuries...

Hypernatremia develops commonly in critically ill patients during hospitalization, and is associated with adverse outcomes. However, community acquired hypernatremia (CAH) has been rarely studied. We conducted a study in patients who presented to an urban referral hospital, and were admitted with CAH. We retrospectively analyzed patients admitted to an urban tertiary care hospital from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014. CAH is defined as more than 147 mEq/L at admission in patients not transferred from other hospitals...

Traditional echocardiography is unable to detect neither the early stages of iron overload cardiomyopathy nor myocardial iron deposition. The aim of the study is to determine myocardial systolic strain indices in thalassemia major (TM), and assess their relationship with T2*, a cardiac magnetic resonance index of the severity of cardiac iron overload. 55 TM cases with recent cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR-T2*) underwent speckle tracking analysis to assess regional myocardial strains and rotation. The results were compared with a normal control group (n = 20), and were subsequently analyzed on the basis of the CMR-T2* values...

REVIEW

Dabigatran etexilate (DE) is a direct thrombin inhibitor, which has been approved for the treatment of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), and for the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Despite large randomized clinical trials and independent observational studies providing robust data concerning DE safety and efficacy, some physicians still perceive mild-to-moderate renal impairment and old age as a relative contraindication to its use. In this article, we review the available scientific evidence supporting the use of DE in these clinical situations...

Neurologically intact survival after cardiac arrest is possible even after prolonged resuscitation efforts. However, the factors associated with good neurologic outcome in these patients remain unknown. This study identifies predictors associated with good neurologic outcome after resuscitation beyond 30 min in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients treated with targeted temperature management (TTM). This multicenter, registry-based, retrospective cohort study conducted in 24 hospitals across South Korea between 2007 and 2012 includes adult (≥18 years) non-traumatic OHCA patients with prolonged (>30 min) downtime who underwent TTM treatment...
