BACKGROUND: The cardiovascular risk of obesity is potentially increased by arterial stiffness. OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship of adiposity measures with arterial stiffness in Caucasian adults with intermediate cardiovascular risk. SETTING: Six Spanish health centres. PARTICIPANTS: We enrolled 2354 adults (age range, 35-74 years; mean age, 61.4±7.7 years, 61.9% male). METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study that analyses data from the baseline visit of the improving interMediAte RisK management (MARK) study...

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is now an emerging cardiovascular epidemic, being identified as the main phenotype observed in clinical practice. It is more associated with female gender, advanced age and comorbidities such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity and chronic kidney disease. Amyloidosis is a clinical disorder characterized by the deposition of aggregates of insoluble fibrils originating from proteins that exhibit anomalous folding. Recently, pictures of senile amyloidosis have been described in patients with HFpEF, demonstrating the need for clinical cardiologists to investigate this etiology in suspect cases...

INTRODUCTION: The variability of arterial blood pressure (BP) is considered an important cardiovascular risk factor. OBJECTIVE: To verify the possible associations between the postprandial and the sleeping blood pressure variability. METHODS: This study evaluated systolic, diastolic, mean, pulse pressures and heart variability in 69 elderly patients in preprandial, postprandial and sleeping periods. One 24 hours ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was used for measurements and the results were showed in the time-rate index...

AIM: The increase in the average life led an increase of diseases, acute and chronic, not only cardiovascular and respiratory system, but also gastrointestinal. Likewise we see an increase in neoplastic lesions, sometimes diagnosed in advanced stage of disease, not susceptible to radical therapy. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the usefulness, reliability and security of colonoscopy in elderly patients, age 75 years or more. MATHERIALS END METHODS: We analysed 2407 colonoscopies, performed from January 2005 to December 2006 in Unit of Digestive Endoscopy of Gastrointestinal Surgery ("Federico II" University of Naples) and in Unit of Digestive Endoscopy of "Villa Maria Clinica" (Mirabella Eclano)...

In medical practice, the different scenarios in which cardio respiratory resuscitation (CPR) may be applied must be taken into account. CPR is crucial in subjects that arrive in emergency rooms or suffer a cardiac arrest in public places or at their homes. It is also critical in hospitalized patients with potentially reversible diseases, who suffer cardiac arrest as an unexpected event during their evolution. In intensive care units, the decision is particularly complex. The concepts of therapeutic proportionality, treatment futility and therapeutic tenacity can help physicians in their decision making about when CPR is technically and morally mandatory...
