BACKGROUND: Although octogenarians constitute a fast-growing portion of cardiovascular patients, few data are available on the outcome of patients aged ≥85 years with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI). METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed 126 consecutive patients aged ≥85 years (age 88±2 years) with STEMI, undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) within 12 hours from symptoms onset. Long-term follow-up (median 898 days) was obtained for the 102 patients surviving the index-hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of meningioma has increased drastically recently, particularly in the elderly. Surgical intervention has the potential to reduce neurological symptoms and to achieve favorable, long-term outcomes. There is considerable variability in the literature examining the relationship between age and outcomes following meningioma surgery. The objective of this study was to identify the relationship between age and postoperative complications following craniotomy for resection of meningioma...

The aging population increases the demand of intensive care unit (ICU) treatments. However, the availability of ICU beds is limited. Thus, ICU admission of octogenarians is considered controversial. The population above 80 years is a very heterogeneous group though, and age alone might not be the best predictor. Aim of this study was to analyze resource consumption and outcome of octogenarians admitted to a medical ICU to identify reliable survival predictors in a senescent society.This retrospective observational study analyzes 930 octogenarians and 5732 younger patients admitted to a medical ICU...

OBJECTIVES: According to current guidelines, radical cystectomy (RC) should be combined with an extended pelvic lymphadenectomy (PLND) as therapeutic and staging instrument. Objective of this study was to analyze the influence of PLND on survival rates and complication rates in a selected group of elderly patients with a minimum age of 80 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this single-center retrospective analysis, we evaluated 102 patients who underwent RC due to UCB from 2004 to 2015 at our institution...

INTRODUCTION: The ageing of populations is evident in most developed countries, and the oldest old group is one of the segments with the fastest growing. The aim of this paper is to examine sociodemographic and health related characteristics of the portuguese oldest old, using a census-based approach. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A descriptive study considering all residents aged 80 years and older at the time of the 2011 Census (n = 532 219) was conducted. Information on sociodemographic characteristics, sensory functions (seeing, hearing), functional status (walking/climbing stairs, bathing/dressing alone), cognition (memory/concentration), and communication (understanding others/being understood) as assessed by the Portuguese census official questionnaires were analyzed...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery has been used to treat lung cancer. However, pleural adhesions may increase the risk of lung injury while making the access port. We report a case of lung cancer in which preoperative lung ultrasound sonography was used to predict the pleural adherence area. An octogenarian man had undergone chest surgery for right spontaneous pneumothorax 20 years ago. He was recently diagnosed with a right middle lobe carcinoma and thoracoscopic surgery was scheduled. On preoperative lung ultrasound sonography, adhesion in the area surrounding the previous incision line was predicted to be strong...

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of studies in Western countries have shown that healthy dietary patterns may have a protective effect against cognitive decline and dementia. However, information on this relationship among non-Western populations with different cultural settings is extremely limited. We aim to examine the relationship between dietary patterns and cognitive function among older Japanese people. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 635 community-dwelling people aged 69-71 years who participated in the prospective cohort study titled Septuagenarians, Octogenarians, Nonagenarians Investigation with Centenarians (SONIC)...

Nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent arrhythmia with a prevalence of 1%-2% in the general population. Its prevalence increases with age and its diagnosis benefits of improvement and simplification of technologies for its detection. Today, AF affects approximately 7% of individuals age>65years and 15%-20% of octogenarians. Due to stasis and activation of coagulation in a fibrillating atrium, patients are at increased risk of thromboembolism, in particular ischemic stroke, with an overall stroke risk of 5% per year...

BACKGROUND: Although there is a general perception that, as the older population grows in number, more are undergoing surgery, there are few data on trends in major resections for cancer and short-term outcomes in this group. METHODS: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample was (NIS) used to estimate the national trends of major upper abdominal resections (esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas) for cancer in octogenarians (aged ≥80 years) from 2001 to 2011. Resection rates performed per year were incidence-adjusted within this age group for each cancer type as determined by the NIS database...

BACKGROUND: Treatment choice for muscle invasive bladder cancer continues to be radical cystectomy. However, radical cystectomy carries a relatively high risk of morbidity and mortality compared with other urological procedures. OBJECTIVE: To compare surgical complications following radical cystectomy in septuagenarians and octogenarians. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (2009-2013) was used to identify patients who were 70 yr and older and underwent radical cystectomy...

AIM: To investigate the predictive factors of cardiac events including rehospitalization for worsening heart failure (HF) and cardiac death within 1 year after hospital discharge in octogenarians hospitalized for HF. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed in detail clinical data for patients aged >80 years who were admitted to Kochi University, Kochi, Japan, for acute decompensated HF in order to identify predictive factors for cardiac events within 1 year. RESULTS: A total of 67 patients (mean age of 85 ± 4 years, 39 men) were included, and 28 patients (41...

Ageing is assumed to be accompanied by greater health care expenditures but the association is also viewed as a 'red herring'. This study aimed to evaluate whether age is associated with health care costs in the senior elderly, using electronic health records for 98,220 participants aged 80 years and over registered with the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink and linked Hospital Episode Statistics (2010-2014). Annual costs of health care utilization were estimated from a two-part model; multiple fractional polynomial models were employed to evaluate the non-linear association of age with predicted health care costs while also controlling for comorbidities, impairments, and death proximity...

BACKGROUND: The number of octogenarians undergoing revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is increasing. However, there has been a lack of studies investigating the perioperative course and safety of revision TKA performed in this potentially vulnerable population in a large patient population. The purpose of this study is to compare complications following revision TKA between octogenarians and 2 younger patient populations (<70 and 70-79 year olds). METHODS: Patients who underwent revision TKA were identified in the 2005-2015 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database and stratified into 3 age groups: <70, 70-79, and ≥80 years...
