BACKGROUND: Hypersensitivity to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) constitutes a serious problem for subjects with coronary artery disease. In such subjects, physicians have to choose the more appropriate procedure between challenge and desensitization. As the literature on this issue is sparse, the present study aims to establish in these subjects clinical criteria for eligibility for an ASA challenge and/or desensitization. METHODS: Collection and analysis of data on ASA challenges and desensitizations from 10 allergy centers, as well as consensus among the related physicians and an expert panel...

Selective immunoglobulin E (IgE) deficiency (IgED) is defined as serum levels of IgE more than or equal to 2 kIU/L and is associated with immune dysregulation and autoimmunity. This study aimed to investigate a prevalence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in population with IgED. Within the electronic patient record (EPR) database of Leumit Health Care Services (LHS) in Israel, data capture was performed using IBM Cognos 10.1.1 BI Report Studio software. The case samples were drawn from the full study population (n = 18,487), having any allergy-related symptoms and/or those requesting antiallergy medications and performed serum total IgE measurement during 2012 at LHS...

Allergy is a systemic inflammatory disease that could theoretically affect the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes through inflammatory pathways or mast cell-induced coronary spasm. Whether allergy is associated with an increased risk of CVD and diabetes is largely unknown. We investigated the association between atopy as assessed by IgE sensitization, a well-accepted biomarker of allergy, and incidence of ischemic heart disease, stroke, and diabetes in five Danish population-based cohorts. A total of 14,849 participants were included in the study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Prior to elective surgery it is essential to know in advance the patient's clinical condition. The aim of this study was to compare the preoperative evaluation (POE) through questionnaire responses with preanesthetic evaluation by the anesthesiologist. METHOD: Prior to their preoperative evaluation, patients answered a questionnaire with information regarding age, weight, height, scheduled surgery, past medical and surgical history, allergies, medications and doses used, social history (illicit drugs, alcohol, smoking), functional capacity and exercise tolerance...

BACKGROUND: Subcutaneous allergen-specific immunotherapy (SCIT) is a well-documented treatment of IgE-mediated allergic disease. Little is known about potential effects of SCIT on the risk of other chronic immune-related diseases. Over the years, a few casuistic reports have caused concern that SCIT might act as a trigger of autoimmune disease. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the association of SCIT with the incidence of autoimmune disease and ischemic heart disease (IHD), as well as all-cause mortality...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, increased serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) concentration in patients with cardiovascular diseases has been generating more and more interest. It is as yet unknown, however, if the increased IgE level is a marker of future coronary incidents and whether it may be regarded as an ischemic heart disease risk factor, or if it is indicative of the participation of antibodies in an inflammatory reaction to tissue damage. The aim of the study was to evaluate what significant changes in the total IgE concentration occur in patients with different forms of ischemic heart disease (IHD) and whether the concentration differs in comparison to healthy people...

CONTEXT: Few studies and no international comparisons have examined the impact of multiple chronic conditions on populations using a comprehensive health-related quality of life (HRQL) questionnaire. OBJECTIVE: The impact of common chronic conditions on HRQL among the general populations of eight countries was assessed. DESIGN: Cross-sectional mail and interview surveys were conducted. PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: Sample representatives of the adult general population of eight countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway and the United States) were evaluated...

Hypereosinophilic syndrome is characterized by persistent hypereosinophilia and signs or symptoms due to organ involvement, specially nervous system, heart and skin. It can be primary or secondary to allergies, parasites or cancer. Toxocariasis is an uncommon parasitic disease in adults. There is a variant, called visceral larva migrans, that can involve different organs, and among those, the central nervous system. We report a 61 years old male, with a cerebrovascular disease. There were focalizing symptoms, the CAT scan showed multiple ischemic lesions and a peripheral eosinophilia of 12,152 cells/mm3 was present...

The authors investigated whether two objective allergy markers, peripheral blood eosinophilia and skin tests for common aeroallergens, were associated with cardiovascular death. Of 5,382 subjects in the Vlagtwedde-Vlaardingen Study (the Netherlands) with data on allergy markers in 1965-1972, 507 subjects died from cardiovascular disease during 30 years of follow-up. Subjects with eosinophilia had an increased risk of cardiovascular death (relative risk (RR) = 1.7; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.4, 2.2), including ischemic heart disease death (RR = 1...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
J R Nielsen, K E Pedersen, C G Dahlstrøm, B L Nielsen, B Secher, T Johansen, L F Gram
In a randomized double-blind study with flexible dosage, morphine, nicomorphine and pethidine were compared with regard to analgetic effect, dose requirements, dose intervals and adverse reactions. A total of 275 patients were included, and 28 patients were excluded due to adverse reactions (n = 16) and for practical reasons, etc. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was diagnosed in about 60% of the patients, and about 30% had ischemic heart disease without AMI. All three analgesics provided equally efficient pain relief in relative doses of morphine 10, nicomorphine 10 and pethidine 75 mg/ml...

Despite a large number of papers concerning coronary spasm, its mechanism still remains unsolved. Several cases have been reported in which coronary spasm was triggered by allergy. Since histamine is one of the causative substances released in allergic reactions, we speculated on some involvement of an allergic mechanism in the pathogenesis of coronary spasm. We retrospectively examined by questionnaire the incidence of allergic history in patients with variant angina (n = 47) and compared it with that in patients with non-ischemic heart diseases (n = 83)...

REVIEW
W Meigel, W Lengen
Operations on the cutaneous surfaces are mainly performed under local anesthesia. Local infiltrative anesthesia is the most frequently used form in cutaneous surgery. Nerve or field block anesthesia can be used in areas like the external ear, nose, digits or penis. Local anesthesia is easy to administer, rapidly effective and relatively free of side effects. In contrast to general anesthesia it can be used in risk patients e.g. with ischemic heart disease or respiratory illnesses. Adverse reactions must be taken into account, especially toxic effects, allergy, drug interactions or traumatic lesions of nerves or blood vessels...
