BACKGROUND: To assess the current landscape of the heart failure (HF) epidemic and provide targets for future health policy interventions in Medicare, a contemporary appraisal of its epidemiology across inpatient and outpatient care settings is needed. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a national 5% sample of Medicare beneficiaries from 2002 to 2013, we identified a cohort of 2 331 939 unique fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries ≥65-years-old followed for all inpatient and outpatient encounters over a 10-year period (2004-2013)...

Squamous cell carcinoma of kidney is a rare tumour of the many tumours seen in the kidney. It is usually associated with chronic irritation by a foreign body, which is mostly a stag horn calculus. Diagnosis of carcinoma in the presence of stag horn calculus is bizarre as it is seen in only <1% of patients. After imaging in this patient, the lymph nodes were enlarged and showed necrosis, which favoured the diagnosis of tuberculosis in a country where it is endemic. The pathological examination after surgery has amazed us by the presence of squamous cell carcinoma with lymph nodes positive with metastasis to vertebrae as the patient has presented to us with all symptoms of infection like pain and fever, which never made us think about malignancy preoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Lifelong preservation of tooth in a healthy state is the ultimate goal of dentistry. Premature loss of primary teeth is common due to caries, dental trauma or other causes. As the primary teeth are the best space maintainers, teeth with infected pulps should be retained until exfoliation, whenever possible. AIM: The purpose of this in vivo study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of different obturating methods used in primary teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty one patients aged four to nine years with a total of 60 teeth were selected...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is commonly associated with morbid obesity. Weight loss following bariatric surgery results in resolution or improvement of OSA. However, few studies have done objective assessment of the impact of bariatric surgery on OSA. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of bariatric surgery on OSA. SETTING: The study was conducted in the teaching institution of a tertiary care centre. METHODS: Twenty-seven morbidly obese patients seeking bariatric surgery were administered Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) health questionnaire and subjected to overnight polysomnography...

Postacute myocardial infarction (AMI) readmissions are common among Medicare beneficiaries (≥65 years) and are associated with significant resource utilization. However, patterns of AMI readmissions for younger age groups in the United States are not known. In the Nationwide Readmissions Database, a nationally representative all-payer database of inpatient hospitalizations, we identified 212,171 index AMI hospitalizations in January to November 2013, weighted to represent 478,247 hospitalizations nationally (mean age 66...

Hemoglobin (Hb) is a potent oxidant outside the erythrocyte. The tyrosines α140 and β145 play an important role in the structure and function of Hb by forming switch and hinge contacts. These carboxy-terminal residues of the alpha and beta chains, respectively, were replaced to phenylalanine and several different methods were used to characterize the obtained mutants including a comet and plasmid DNA cleavage assay. It was observed that the genotoxic effect was 40% higher for αY140F compared with the wildtype, the βY145F and the double (αY140/β145F) mutants as determined by the comet assay...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Recently, Sofosbuvir was launched in India at affordable cost. We conducted a real-life study to determine the efficacy and safety of Sofosbuvir plus Ribavirin, with and without peginterferon-alfa 2a, in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) genotype 3, the commonest genotype in South Asia. METHODS: This study included data of CHC patients from 11 sites in northern India between March 2015 and December 2015 (n = 1203). Patients with CHC genotype 3 (n = 931), who were treated with either Sofosbuvir 400 mg plus weight-based Ribavirin, daily ×24 weeks (n = 432) (dual therapy), or Peginterferon-α2a 180 mcg weekly, Sofosbuvir 400 mg plus weight-based Ribavirin, daily ×12 weeks (n = 499) (triple therapy) were included for analysis...

Aneurysmal degeneration of the visceral branches of the abdominal aorta is a rare and potentially life-threatening disease entity. Visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) are exceedingly rare and have a prevalence of 0.1 to 2%. The left gastric artery aneurysm (LGAA) is even more rare and accounts for less than 4% of all VAAs. There is scarce literature on treatment of LGAA by embolization; however, to date successful laparoscopic repair of an LGAA has not been described. We describe the successful treatment of an LGAA by laparoscopic ligation and resection in a 68-year-old male patient...

BACKGROUND: Patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are at risk for thromboembolism and restoration of sinus rhythm (SR) may be the preferred strategy. Percutaneous balloon mitral valvotomy (PBMV) improves hemodynamics, but may not be enough to restore SR. METHODS: Prospective randomized study aimed at evaluating efficacy of early direct current cardioversion (DCCV) following successful PBMV in patients with long-standing AF. Group 1 (n=20) had patients of rheumatic MS with AF who underwent successful PBMV...

There is limited literature on the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in patients with recent myocardial infarction and in those with reduced cardiac output. In this report, we describe the safe use of ECT in a 70-year-male suffering from severe depressive episode with psychotic symptoms. He had a history of poor response to adequate pharmacotherapy and had suffered from myocardial infraction (MI), about 3 weeks prior to admission to the psychiatric unit. In view of severe depression associated with marked anxiety, agitation, psychotic symptoms, and poor food intake he was started on ECT after 5 weeks of MI when his cardiac output was only 30%...

Amongst the varied, diverse causes of intraabdominal masses in infancy and early childhood, gastric teratomas (GTs) account for a very small proportion. A worldwide literature search reveals only around one hundred cases of GT and also supports the fact that its preoperative diagnosis remains elusive. Here we report the case of a two-month-old male who presented to the pediatric surgery outpatient department of Kasturba Medical College and Hospital, Karnataka, India, with progressive distension of abdomen since birth...
