Introduction: In the Canary Islands there is a high prevalence of vascular risk factors. Objective: To analyze the clinical characteristics of 300 patients with type 2 diabetes in El Hierro, in the Canary Islands. Methods: Patients were assessed at the Internal Medicine Unit of the hospital from 1982 to 2010, and followed up until December 2014 or until death. The sample is composed of 154 women and 156 men (52%). Results: mean age was 66.40 ± 11.60 years, with an average follow-up time of 11.04 ± 4.93 years, and 80...

The use of perioperative statins has been proposed as a measure to reduce morbidity and mortality in cardiac surgery. However, their clinical role is controversial. Searching in Epistemonikos database, which is maintained by screening multiple databases, we identified 36 systematic reviews comprising 92 primary studies addressing the question of this article, including 22 randomized trials. We extracted data, combined the evidence using meta-analysis and generated a summary of findings following the GRADE approach...

OBJECTIVES: Aldosterone inhibitors have been shown to be beneficial for patients with systolic heart failure. However, the evidence from patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is limited. We evaluated the role of spironolactone in the prognosis of a cohort of patients with HFPEF. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We analyzed the outcomes of patients hospitalized for HFPEF in 52 departments of internal medicine of the Spanish RICA registry according to those who did and did not take spironolactone...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To determine the degree of control of patients on anticoagulants in follow-up in primary care in Galicia and investigate whether time in therapeutic range as estimated using the number of acceptable controls is comparable with the estimation using the Rosendaal method. METHODS: Transversal study that included patients older than 65 years, diagnosed with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, on anticoagulants for at least 1 year. Control was considered good when the time in therapeutic range was greater than 65%, estimated by the Rosendaal method, or 60% estimated by the number of acceptable controls...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the adequacy of atrial fibrillation (AF) management 6 years after the establishment of a coordinated AF Unit. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with AF attended during 14 consecutive days in the Emergency Room, Internal Medicine, Neurology and Arrhythmia departments of a tertiary hospital, and 3 primary health care centers of the same urban health care area were included. Treatment for AF and its adequacy to current clinical guidelines, tests performed and knowledge about the arrhythmia were evaluated...

Many of the primary clinical manifestations of heart failure (HF) are due to fluid retention, and treatments targeting congestion play a central role in HF management. Diuretic therapy remains the cornerstone of congestion treatment, and diuretics are prescribed to the majority of HF patients. Despite this ubiquitous use, there is limited evidence from prospective randomized studies to guide the use of diuretics. With the chronic use of diuretic and usually in advanced stages of HF, diuretics may fail to control salt and water retention...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The main therapeutic objective in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients is stroke prevention. This study is aimed to determine whether the anticoagulant therapy may be appropriate regarding to the Guidelines and patients' profile in primary healthcare in Spain. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A national, multicenter, cross-sectional study of AF patients attended in primary healthcare in Spain has been conducted. The study involved 185 family physicians whose patients were randomized...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Age and arterial hypertension are two of the main factors associated with atrial fibrillation and an increased risk of embolism. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of atrial fibrillation and the extent of antithrombotic use in hypertensive patients aged ≥65 years in the Spanish region of Valencia. METHODS: Each study investigator enrolled the first three hypertensive patients aged ≥65 years who came for a consultation on the first day of each week for 5 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: The study analyzed the role of different variables that determine long-term sinus rhythm maintenance in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation who are treated with amiodarone. BACKGROUND: It has been recognized that different factors influence long-term sinus rhythm preservation after the conversion of persistent atrial fibrillation. Although the duration of the arrhythmia appears to be the most important factor, consistent information regarding the role of the mode of arrhythmia conversion (pharmacologic or electric) is still lacking...
