BACKGROUND: Lithium is a first-line treatment for bipolar disorder in geriatric patients; however, it has long been associated with potentially significant renal consequences, including chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: We reviewed the available evidence to characterize the effects of lithium on renal function, provide a consensus on periodic monitoring, and propose criteria for transitioning an older patient with bipolar disorder and renal issues to an alternate medication...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether daily short-term rhythm strip recordings on top of routine clinical care could increase the atrial fibrillation (AF) detection rate in the hospitalised elderly. METHODS: A hand-held device storing a bipolar ECG during 1 min was used for daily rhythm recording in hospitalised elderly patients. RESULTS: During 2 months, all patients admitted to the Department of Geriatric Medicine were screened (n=327). Five patients refused to participate in the study and 70 patients were unable to hold the device due to severe mental (n=46) or motor impairment (n=24)...

OBJECTIVES: Across age groups, bipolar disorder (BD) carries the greatest risk of death by suicide of all psychiatric conditions; 25%-50% of those with BD will make one or more suicide attempt. Psychometrically sound instruments are required to reliably measure suicide ideation and risk of self-harm for older adults with BD. For this study, we validate the geriatric suicide ideation scale (GSIS) with adults 50+ years with BD. METHODS: We recruited a global sample of 220 older adults with BD (M = 58...

The prevalence of mania among >65-year-olds ranges from 0.1% to 0.4% and its treatment is a particular challenge for clinicians. Although lithium is the treatment of choice for bipolar disorder (BD), its use in elderly population was recently questioned. This study provides a comprehensive review of literature on the efficacy and tolerability of lithium as a pharmacologic treatment for mania in elderly BD patients. We conducted a systematic review, based on PRISMA guidelines, of articles published between 1970 and August 2016 and indexed in the following databases: EMBASE, MEDLINE, Cochrane Library Databases and PsycINFO...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of supplementary fixation in hip arthroplasty with the use of Kirschner-wires and tension band for geriatric patients suffering unstable intertrochanteric osteoporotic fractures. A total of 103 patients aged more than 75 years were recruited. A bipolar or total hip replacement was performed with additional application of Kirschner-wires and tension band, and the participants were followed up for 2 to 11 years. Physical component summary (PCS), mental component summary (MCS), visual analog scale (VAS), and Harris hip score were utilized to evaluate patients' hip pain and function, as well as the mental condition postoperatively after 1...

BACKGROUND: Femoral neck fractures are common injuries in the geriatric population associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Studies have shown outcomes can be positively influenced by early postoperative mobilization. The supercapsular percutaneously assisted total hip (SuperPath) surgical technique has been shown to lead to early mobilization for osteoarthritic total hip replacement patients and as such has the potential to provide similar benefits in fracture patients. This manuscript provides a detailed description of this technique using hemiarthroplasty to treat femoral neck fractures and presents the first case series of this application...

Despite the lower prevalence of severe mood disorders in the elderly as compared to younger adults, late-life depression and bipolar disorder (BD) are more strongly associated with negative outcomes related to the presence of medical comorbidities, cognitive deficits, and increased suicide risk and overall mortality. The mechanisms that contribute to these associations are probably multifactorial, involving pathological factors related directly and indirectly to the disease itself, ranging from biological to psychosocial factors...

Lithium is a mood stabilizer rarely associated with drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP). We present a case of an elderly woman with bipolar disorder who developed parkinsonian symptoms after chronic lithium administration despite therapeutic serum levels. Upon evaluation, classic parkinsonian signs of muscle rigidity, tremor, bradykinesia, freezing of gait, and cognitive decline were observed. Initially, she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD); however, DaTscan SPECT imaging clarified the diagnosis as DIP...

A 70-year-old female patient, known case of hypertension and incomplete Left bundle branch block (LBBB), posted for bipolar hemiarthroplasty. A geriatric patient with LBBB and systemic hypertension is a fatal combination; it may precipitate into complete AV dissociation during anaesthesia and surgical stress. We are reporting this interesting case as our patient had developed complete Atrioventricular (AV) dissociation when scheduled earlier for surgery and got postponed. We had given combined spinal epidural anaesthesia and managed successfully without any complication...

OBJECTIVE: Older adults with bipolar disorder (OABD) are a growing segment of patients with bipolar disorder (BD) for which specific guidelines are warranted. Although, OABD are frequently excluded from randomized controlled trials due to their age or somatic comorbidity, more treatment data from a variety of sources have become available in recent years. It is expected that at least some of this emerging information on OABD would be incorporated into treatment guidelines available to clinicians around the world...

OBJECTIVES: Decreased levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) have been found in adult patients with bipolar disorder (BD) compared with a comparison group, yet there are no data specifically examining this in geriatric patients. The objective of this study was to examine whether euthymic late-life BD patients have lower BDNF levels than healthy comparators. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Clinics at the University of Pittsburgh and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Toronto)...

OBJECTIVE: Many patients with severe recurrent mental illness are approaching late life; however, little is known about psychiatric re-hospitalization in this population. Our objective was to identify predictors of psychiatric re-hospitalization. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of all 226 geriatric patients (age ≥65 years) admitted to a tertiary care Canadian inpatient psychiatric unit between 2003 and 2008. The main outcome was psychiatric re-hospitalization in 5-year follow-up post-discharge (e...

BACKGROUND: No prior study has investigated whether impairment of specific cognitive functions at baseline may predict the short-term treatment outcome of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in elderly non-demented patients with major depression (MD). METHODS: This longitudinal cohort study included 65 elderly patients with unipolar or bipolar MD, aged 60-85 years, treated with formula-based ECT. Treatment outcome was assessed using the 17-item Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRSD17)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Intracapsular femoral neck fractures are common in the elderly population. To avoid the poor outcome of internal fixation and for early mobilization, hemiarthroplasty is performed. However, there is inadequate evidence to support the choice between unipolar or bipolar hemiarthroplasty. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of unipolar with the bipolar prosthesis in geriatric patients. METHODS: Forty-one patients above 60 years of age and an acute displaced fracture of the femoral neck were randomly allocated to treatment by either unipolar or bipolar hemiarthroplasty, in the Department of Orthopaedics, between September 2009 and October 2012...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common condition causing neurologic, cognitive, psychiatric, and mood symptoms. With varied religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic heterogeneity among the people in India greatly influencing their dietary habits and with the high prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection, Vitamin B12 deficiency is not uncommon, but is often under recognized due to the lack of classical symptomatic presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective study on Vitamin B12 deficiency with neuropsychiatric symptoms in patients who attended neurology, psychiatry, and geriatric OPDs for a period of 1 year in a specialized neuropsychiatric institute in South India...
