BACKGROUND: Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is a common cause of patient morbidity and mortality in the perioperative period. Patients undergoing long-lasting, abdominal, and urogenital surgeries with risk factors such as advanced age, peripheral artery disease, diabetes mellitus, renovascular disease, and congestive heart failure are candidates for acute kidney injury (AKI) due to impaired renal perfusion and decreased functional renal reserve. Pharmacological agents with multiple functions and anti-oxidative and anti-inflammation properties may be promising preventative strategies for AKI...

Thoracic fluid accumulation is one of the significant and early-stage manifestations of fatal diseases, such as lung-cancer, liver-failure and congestive heart-failure. Currently, computational-tomography (CT)-Scan is the most widely used tool for the detection of thoracic fluid. Yet, it is unable to detect small amounts of fluid, has ionizing radiation and lacks mobility. On the other hand, microwave imaging systems have emerged as an accurate and portable complementary diagnostic tool. However, there is a lack of a complete clinical platform that can fulfill the requirements of accurate and reliable imaging...

Woolly hair may occur as an isolated problem of cosmetic concern or can be a part of a systemic disease (woolly hair syndrome) with underlying fatal cardiomyopathy. Two characteristic associations of woolly hair syndrome are Naxos disease and Carvajal syndrome. Naxos disease is characterized by woolly hair, palmoplantar keratoderma, and arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.In this report we describe a case of a young girl who presented with heart failure and was subsequently diagnosed as a case of generalized woolly hair with biventricular arrythmogenic cardiomyopathy...

Hydroxychloroquine, due to its multifaceted pleiotropic benefits including anti-inflammatory effects has great potential in reducing cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality. CV outcome data of hydroxychloroquine is available through 2 retrospective studies in rheumatoid arthritis patients, both of which have not considered congestive heart failure (CHF) as an outcome measure. CHF is an important CV outcome and is more common than myocardial infarction and stroke; and increased age is associated with increased risk of CHF...

Increased neurohumoral stimulation resulting in excessive sodium avidity and extracellular volume overload are hallmark features of decompensated heart failure. Especially in case of concomitant renal dysfunction, the kidneys often fail to elicit effective natriuresis. While assessment of renal function is generally performed by measuring serum creatinine-a surrogate for glomerular filtration-, this only represents part of the nephron's function. Alterations in tubular sodium handling are at least equally important in the development of volume overload and congestion...

Objective A channel congestion problem might occur when the traffic density increases since the number of basic safety messages carried on the communication channel also increases in vehicle-to-vehicle communications. A remedy algorithm proposed in SAE J2945/1 is designed to address the channel congestion issue by decreasing transmission frequency and radiated power. This study is to develop potential test procedures for evaluating or validating the congestion control algorithm. Methods Simulations of a reference unit transmitting at a higher frequency are implemented to emulate a number of Onboard Equipment (OBE) transmitting at the normal interval of 100 milliseconds (10 Hz)...

Extracorporeal shockwave myocardial revascularization (ESMR) is one of the new treatment options for refractory angina pectoris (RAP), and some studies have indicated its effectiveness. A single-arm prospective trial to assess the feasibility of ESMR using Cardiospec for patients with post-acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and RAP was designed and performed. The patients were treated with 9 sessions of ESMR to the ischemic areas for 9 weeks. The feasibility measures included echocardiography; cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; troponin T, creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), and brain natriuretic peptide testing; and a Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ) survey...

Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a pivotal mediator of vasoconstriction and inflammation in congestive states such as heart failure (HF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Whether peripheral venous congestion (VC) increases plasma ET-1 at pressures commonly seen in HF and CKD patients is unknown. We seek to characterize whether peripheral VC promotes time- and dose-dependent increases in plasma ET-1 and whether these changes are sustained after decongestion. We used a randomized, cross-over design in 20 healthy subjects (age 30 ± 7 years)...

BACKGROUND: Treatment with renin-angiotensin system (RAS) inhibitors might restrain the structural/electrical remodeling associated with atrial fibrillation (AF). Limited evidence exists regarding the potential benefits of RAS inhibition post-acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients with AF. This study sought to assess the association between RAS inhibition and all-cause mortality and new-onset AF in patients with/without congestive heart failure (CHF) post-AMI. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients hospitalized for AMI between 2006 and 2012 were identified in Swedish registries...

BACKGROUND: Improving the management of patients with complex chronic disease is a substantial undertaking with the simultaneous goals of improving patient outcomes and controlling costs. Reducing avoidable hospitalization for such patients is a step toward both objectives. Some of the deterioration experienced in chronic disease patients occurs outside the view of their clinicians, and before the patient becomes overtly symptomatic. Home monitoring has been used for more than 20 years to detect deterioration earlier so that the patients could be treated before they became ill enough to require hospitalization...
