There was held stationary survey of 661 patients in different age: 234 - from 60 to 102 years, 427 - from 18 to 59 years. Identify options for pathology, clearly increasing its prevalence in parallel with the increase of age. It is, first and foremost, diseases of musculoskeletal apparatus, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system. At the same time, acute violations of cerebral circulation in the form of strokes, on the contrary, prevailed among persons under the age of 60 years, and an increase in the frequency of ischemic heart disease, angina without myocardial infarction among patients of elderly and senile age in relation to persons under the age of 60 years was insignificant...

Background: Age-related cataract is a leading cause of visual impairment, considered a global health burden, it is responsible for over 47% of blindness worldwide. Surgical intervention is usually the treatment of choice and phacoemulsification cataract surgery with implantation of an intraocular lens is the most common procedure, which may have several complications. Objectives: To determine the effects of phacoemulsification surgery on corneal endothelial cell density and corneal thickness in patients undergoing cataract surgery...

Patients who have senile depression with somatization symptoms are commonly encountered in clinical practice. The present case reports on a patient with senile depression who was repeatedly hospitalized and had somatic symptoms. Although the patient recovered after the first hospitalization, she suffered from a relapse one year later. As we followed up, due to the neurological findings and the response to treatment, we found that the patient is in line with the diagnoistic criteria for multiple system atrophy (MSA)...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the correlation between senile osteoporosis and calcified plaques in the arteries and to study the common potential risk factors for loss of bone mass and calcified plaques in the arteries. METHODS: Eligible patients (≥60 years old) who received treatment in our hospital from January 2016 to December2016 were included in this study. Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Multivariate regression model was used to analyze the correlation of osteoporosis and loss of bone mass with the risk of calcified plaques in the carotid and coronary arteries...

Spinal epidural hematoma (SEH) is a rare cause of nerve root or cord compression; its pathogenesis is not always clearly recognizable. The aim of this paper was to investigate possible etiopathological factors in a consecutive series of patients affected by traumatic SEH treated at our institution. Seven patients with neurologic impairment due to traumatic SEH were retrospectively analyzed after diagnosis and surgical treatment. Thoracic localization was found in 5 cases, and lumbar and cervical localization were found in 1 patient each...

The elderly population is growing, lifespans are increasing, and a greater emphasis on geriatric care is being implemented in hospital systems. With a higher percentage of the population living longer, hair and nail diseases associated with the advanced stages of life are becoming more prevalent. Common hair diseases in the elderly include androgenetic alopecia, senile alopecia, frontal fibrosing alopecia, and erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp. Nail diseases associated with advanced age include onychomycosis, brittle nails, onychocryptosis, onychoclavus, onychogryphosis, subungual hematomas, subungual exostosis, myxoid cysts, and malignancies...

With overuse of the broad-spectrum antibiotics, the pulmonary fungal infection increasingly becomes the most common complication associated with senile pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and attracts intensive attentions from clinicians. Here we presented the retrospective analysis of impact of fluconazole treatment on the clinical outcome and immune response in fungal co-infected tuberculosis patients. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of fluconazole (100 mg per day for consecutive weeks) in fungal-positive senile tuberculosis patients was conducted in our hospital...

Objective: To explore the relationship between aging and the expression of monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP) and cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant (CINCs) in patients with pneumonia. Results: Bacteria counts in senile group were significantly higher than non-senile group, and while white blood cell and neutrophil counts in senile group were observably lower than non-senile group. The concentration of MCP-1 was significantly higher in senile group compared with the non-senile group, and the expression of CINC-1 and CINC-2α was also higher in senile group...

We aimed to describe admission rates and outcomes of hospitalized people with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or senile dementia stratified by type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Spain, 2004 to 2013 (N = 541 858, 143 501 [26.5%] of whom had T2D). We excluded alternative causes of dementia. Hospitalization rates were higher in people with T2D (130.5 vs 91.5 cases/105 people). People older than 84 years and comorbidity increased over time. Crude inhospital mortality (IHM) decreased over time both in people with and without T2D (all P values <...

BACKGROUND: Primary hemiarthroplasty was recommended by some surgeons as the preferred choice in treating unstable senile intertrochanteric fractures with osteoporosis. However, many studies reported that proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) currently was as an optimal implant for the treatment of different type of intertrochanteric fractures. Which method is better for treating senile intertrochanteric fractures remains controversial due to the insufficient clinical evidences. METHODS: We reviewed all consecutive senile intertrochanteric fractures treated with PFNA or cemented hemiarthroplasty at our institution between July 2010 and March 2015...
