BACKGROUND: The natural history of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with low-to-intermediate risk is not well characterized. Although earlier invasive serial studies have documented the progression of atherosclerotic burden, most were focused on high-risk patients only. The PARADIGM registry is a large, prospective, multinational dynamic observational registry of patients undergoing serial coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). The primary aim of PARADIGM is to characterize the natural history of CAD in relation to clinical and laboratory data...

AIM: There have been significant changes in adolescent consumption habits over the past fifteen years. New molecules have been synthesized, new devices created and a number of products have increased in popularity; and as a result clinicians sometimes lack information. We chose to focus on this population because of its vulnerability, as adolescents show low sensitivity to long-term outcomes of their actions and may be easily influenced by peers as regards experimentation of new drugs...

This article attempts to identify and put into perspective the different approaches that could globally prevent the suffering induced by schizophrenia, from the detection of early psychosis to the impact on individual and family functioning and emotional health. Schizophrenia causes, at the community level, a number of difficult consequences and associated costs, which likely could be reduced if specific strategies, already known and documented internationally, were applied. Two areas not explored in this article: the role of medication and the issue of suicide prevention...

BACKGROUND: Trauma patients are at increased risk for developing venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease. The EAST (Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma) practice management guidelines identified risk factors for VTE, as well as indications for prophylactic inferior vena cava filters (IVCF). In a 2009 study, our institution found a 26% retrieval rate for IVCF. Lack of retrieval was most consistently due to lack of follow-up. Our study is a follow-up analysis for retrieval rate of IVCF, since the formation of a geriatric trauma service...

BACKGROUND: Natalizumab provides rapid and high-efficacy control of multiple sclerosis disease activity with long-term stabilization. However, the benefits of the drug are countered by a risk of developing progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy in patients infected with the John Cunningham Virus. Close monitoring is required in patients with increased progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy risk receiving natalizumab in the long-term for an optimal benefit-risk evaluation. Standardized high-quality monitoring procedures may provide a superior basis for individual benefit and risk evaluation and thus improve treatment decisions...

BACKGROUND: Drug-drug interactions (DDIs) with warfarin and antimicrobial agents are a common cause of international normalized ratio (INR) instability, which can affect the risk for bleeding and thrombotic events. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of a comprehensive guideline for the management of warfarin-antimicrobial DDIs across transitions of care. The guideline emphasizes improving identification of significant antimicrobial-warfarin DDIs during hospitalization, empirical warfarin dose modification based on DDI and baseline INR, patient education, documentation of the DDI, communication with outpatient providers regarding the DDI and anticipated antimicrobial stop date, and warfarin dose adjustment on discontinuation of antimicrobial...

The wide availability of drugs effective in reducing cardiovascular events and the use of myocardial revascularization have greatly improved the prognosis of patients with coronary artery disease. However, the combination of antithrombotic drugs to be administered before the exact knowledge of the coronary anatomy and before the consequent therapeutic strategy can, on one hand, allow to anticipate an optimal treatment but, on the other hand, may expose the patient to a bleeding risk not always necessary. In patients with ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome with an indication to primary angioplasty, the administration of unfractionated heparin and aspirin is considered the pre-procedural standard treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Benign juvenile hamartomatous polyps are common in pediatric gastrointestinal practice. We hypothesize that in the absence of gross mucosal abnormalities, the likelihood of histologic abnormalities from routine random colonic biopsies is low. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review identifying patients aged 1 to 18 years who underwent complete colonoscopy and polypectomy for suspected colorectal polyps from January 1, 2004 to July 1, 2014...

BACKGROUND: Patient advocates and safety experts encourage adoption of transparent health records, but sceptics worry that shared notes may offend patients, erode trust or promote defensive medicine. As electronic health records disseminate, such disparate views fuel policy debates about risks and benefits of sharing visit notes with patients through portals. METHODS: Presurveys and postsurveys from 99 volunteer doctors at three US sites who participated in OpenNotes and postsurveys from 4592 patients who read at least one note and submitted a survey...

OBJECTIVES: Non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) is one of the most common manifestations of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We evaluated the prognostic role of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) at presentation and peak cardiac troponin I in patients with NSTEMI. METHODS: We consecutively enrolled 215 subjects presenting with NSTEMI. Subjects were followed up for 1 year. cTnI at presentation and the peak value of cTnI were measured. The primary end point was defined as cardiovascular death, readmission to hospital with heart failure and new ACS...

EDITORIAL
Michael Eddleston, Adam F Cohen, David J Webb
Over the past 10 years, thousands of first-into-human (FIH) clinical trials have been performed in Europe, with few severe adverse events (SAEs). Each has received detailed prior safety review at both the local clinical research facility and at national drug regulatory authority level. The recent fatal SAE in the BIA-102474-101 clinical trial shows the limitations of this process. Although criticized for not sequentially dosing subjects both within and between cohorts - as recommended by the European Medicines Agency for high-risk compounds after the TeGenero clinical trial disaster in 2006 - BIA-102474-101 was not considered to be high risk...

Patients in intensive care units (ICUs) may lack decisional capacity and may depend on proxy decision makers (PDMs) to make medical decisions on their behalf. High-quality information-sharing with PDMs, including through such means as health information technology, could improve communication and decision making and could potentially minimize the psychological consequences of an ICU stay for both patients and their family members. However, alongside these anticipated benefits of information-sharing are risks of unwanted disclosure of sensitive information...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine the unbiased mortality rates for pancreatic surgery procedures at the national level through a comprehensive analysis of every inpatient case in Germany. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Several studies have proclaimed a general improvement of perioperative outcomes following pancreatic surgery. These results are challenged by recent analyses of large US databases that found strong volume-outcome relationships, with high mortality in low-volume facilities...

BACKGROUND: Cancer survivors are known to be at increased risk for second primary cancers. In addition, immunosuppression and previous cancer treatments such as radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy are linked with increased risk of both colonic adenomas and adenocarcinomas. AIM: We performed a systematic review searching for manuscripts discussing second colon cancers, accelerated polyposis, immunosuppression, radiation, and chemotherapy. We sought to identify a link between immunosuppression and increased risks specific to premalignant polyposis and second colon cancers...

REVIEW
Nay M Htun, John G Webb
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is a viable alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement in patients with severe aortic stenosis. The SAPIEN 3 is the latest generation of balloon-expandable transcatheter heart valve, designed to address some of the shortcomings of earlier versions of transcatheter heart valves. It has a lower device profile to reduce access-related vascular injury, an improved delivery catheter to facilitate accurate implantation, and incorporates an additional outer sealing cuff to minimize paravalvular leakage...

BACKGROUND: Although pertussis has been considered a disease of childhood, it is also recognized as an important respiratory tract infection in adolescents and adults. However, in countries with routine vaccination against pertussis with high coverage, pertussis is not usually taken into consideration for the etiology of prolonged cough in adults. Previous studies in a variety of populations in developed countries have documented that pertussis is quite common, ranging from 2.9 to 32% of adolescents and adults with prolonged cough...

IMPORTANCE: The natural history of patients with newly diagnosed high-risk nonmetastatic (M0) prostate cancer receiving hormone therapy (HT) either alone or with standard-of-care radiotherapy (RT) is not well documented. Furthermore, no clinical trial has assessed the role of RT in patients with node-positive (N+) M0 disease. The STAMPEDE Trial includes such individuals, allowing an exploratory multivariate analysis of the impact of radical RT. OBJECTIVE: To describe survival and the impact on failure-free survival of RT by nodal involvement in these patients...
