Obstetric and neonatal outcome following chronic hypertension in pregnancy among different ethnic groups. (1/1851)

We retrospectively studied pre-eclampsia rate and obstetric outcome in a cohort of 436 pregnancies amongst 318 women of different ethnic backgrounds attending an antenatal hypertension clinic from 1980-1997, identifying 152 women (213 pregnancies) with chronic essential hypertension. The ethnic breakdown was: White, 64 (30.0%) pregnancies in 48 (31.5%) women; Black/Afro-Caribbean, 79 (37.1%) pregnancies in 56 (36.8%) women; and Indo-Asians, 70 (32.3%) pregnancies in 48 (31.6%) women. The prevalences of pre-eclampsia in White, Black and Indo-Asian women were 17.2%, 12.7% and 18.6%, respectively (p = 0.58). Pregnancies of Indo-Asian women were of shorter gestation, and babies in this group also had lower birth weight and ponderal index compared to those of White and Black women (all p < 0.05). The proportions of overall perinatal mortality were 1.6% for Whites (1/64), 3.8% for Blacks (3/79) and 10.0% for Indo-Asians (7/70), suggesting increased risk in the Indo-Asian group. Indo-Asian women with chronic essential hypertension need careful antenatal care and observation during pregnancy.  (+info)

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome without systemic inflammation in acutely ill patients admitted to hospital in a medical emergency. (2/1851)

Criteria of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) are known to include patients without systemic inflammation. Our aim was to explore additional markers of inflammation that would distinguish SIRS patients with systemic inflammation from patients without inflammation. The study included 100 acutely ill patients with SIRS. Peripheral blood neutrophil and monocyte CD11b expression, serum interleukin-6, interleukin-1beta, tumour necrosis factor-alpha and C-reactive protein were determined, and severity of inflammation was evaluated by systemic inflammation composite score based on CD11b expression, C-reactive protein and cytokine levels. Levels of CD11b expression, C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 were higher in sepsis patients than in SIRS patients who met two criteria (SIRS2 group) or three criteria of SIRS (SIRS3 group). The systemic inflammation composite score of SIRS2 patients (median 1.5; range 0-8, n=56) was lower than that of SIRS3 patients (3.5; range 0-9, n=14, P=0.013) and that of sepsis patients (5.0; range 3-10, n=19, P<0.001). The systemic inflammation composite score was 0 in 13/94 patients. In 81 patients in whom systemic inflammation composite scores exceeded 1, interleukin-6 was increased in 64 (79.0%), C-reactive protein in 59 (72.8%) and CD11b in 50 (61.7%). None of these markers, when used alone, identified all patients but at least one marker was positive in each patient. Quantifying phagocyte CD11b expression and serum interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein concurrently provides a means to discriminate SIRS patients with systemic inflammation from patients without systemic inflammation.  (+info)

CT angiography and Doppler sonography for emergency assessment in acute basilar artery ischemia. (4/1851)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Both Doppler sonography (DS) and spiral CT angiography (CTA) are noninvasive vascular assessment tools with a high potential for application in acute cerebral ischemia. The usefulness of CTA for vascular diagnosis in acute basilar artery (BA) ischemia has not yet been studied. METHODS: We prospectively studied 19 patients (mean+/-SD age, 58+/-11 years) with clinically suspected acute BA occlusion by DS and CTA. Prior extracranial and transcranial DS was performed in all but 1 patient, with DS 4 hours after CTA. In 6 of 19 patients, we performed digital subtraction angiography. RESULTS: CTA was diagnostic in all but 1 patient. CTA revealed complete BA occlusion in 9 patients and incomplete BA occlusion with some residual flow in 2 patients. A patent BA was shown in 7 patients. Because of severe BA calcification, CTA results were inconclusive in 1 patient. DS was diagnostic in only 7 of 19 patients, indicating certain BA occlusion in 3 patients and BA patency in 4 patients. In an additional 9 patients, the results of DS were inconclusive. DS was false-negative in 2 patients with distal BA occlusion shown by CTA and digital subtraction angiography. In 1 patient with DS performed after CTA, recanalization was demonstrated. In addition to the diagnosis or exclusion of BA occlusion, CTA provided information on the exact site and length of BA occlusion and collateral pathways. In our series, CTA results prompted indication for intra-arterial thrombolysis in 5 patients. CONCLUSIONS: CTA was superior to DS in the assessment of BA patency in patients with the syndrome of acute BA ischemia in terms of feasibility and conclusiveness, particularly in cases with distal BA occlusion. Our study confirmed the usefulness of combined extracranial and transcranial DS in the diagnosis and exclusion of proximal BA occlusion.  (+info)

Primary non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage. A municipal emergency hospital viewpoint. (5/1851)

The devastating natural history of 138 consecutive admissions for non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage to a major emergency care municipal hospital is reviewed. Sixty-four percent of the patients had demonstrable intracranial hematomas while 36% had mainly subarachnoid hemorrhage. Hypertension was a related condition in 43% of the parenchymal hematoma patients, while proved aneurysms accounted for 74% of the subarachnoid hemorrhage patients. There was only a 14% survivorship for patients requiring emergent surgery. All operated hematoma patients survived delayed surgery with improved level of responsiveness. The overall mortality was 74% for intracranial hematoma patients and 58% for aneurysm-caused subarachnoid hemorrhage patients.  (+info)

Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, alone or in combination with urokinase therapy, during acute myocardial infarction. (6/1851)

To investigate the effect of pre-treatment of a thrombus with a low dose of urokinase on establishing patency in a persistent infarct-related artery (IRA) during direct percutaneous coronary angioplasty (PTCA), the frequency of acute restenosis during direct PTCA, alone, or in combination with the intracoronary administration of urokinase, was examined in a consecutive nonrandomized series of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Two hundred and seventy-two successful PTCA patients (residual stenosis <50%) were divided into 2 groups: 88 patients received pre-treatment with intracoronary urokinase following PTCA (combination group); 184 received only direct PTCA without thrombolytic therapy (PTCA group). In the present study, after achievement of a residual stenosis of less than 50%, IRA was visualized every 15 min to assess the frequency of acute restenosis, which was defined as an acute progression of IRA with more than 75% restenosis after initially successful PTCA. In the patients with a large coronary thrombus, the frequency (times) of acute restenosis was significantly lower in the combination group than in the PTCA group (0.98+/-0.19 vs 2.92+/-0.32, p<0.0001). On the other hand, in the patients with a small coronary thrombus, the frequency of acute restenosis showed no difference in either group. The present study indicates that in patients with AMI, PTCA combined with pre-treatment of a low dose of urokinase is much more effective than PTCA alone, especially for those patients who have a large coronary thrombus.  (+info)

A 72-year-old female with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) complained of severe chest pain. Electrocardiography showed ST-segment depression and negative T wave in I, aVL and V4-6. Following a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), urgent coronary angiography revealed 99% organic stenosis with delayed flow in the proximal segment and 50% in the middle segment of the left anterior descending artery (LAD). Subsequently, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the stenosis in the proximal LAD was performed. In the coronary care unit, her blood pressure dropped. Hematomas around the puncture sites were observed and the platelet count was 28,000/mm3. After transfusion, electrocardiography revealed ST-segment elevation in I, aVL and V1-6. Urgent recatheterization disclosed total occlusion in the middle segment of the LAD. Subsequently, PTCA was performed successfully. Then, intravenous immunoglobulin increased the platelet count and the bleeding tendency disappeared. A case of AMI with ITP is rare. The present case suggests that primary PTCA can be a useful therapeutic strategy, but careful attention must be paid to hemostasis and to managing the platelet count.  (+info)

Direct costs of coronary artery bypass grafting in patients aged 65 years or more and those under age 65. (8/1851)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years, there have been marked increases in rates of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) among older people in Canada. The objectives of this study were to accurately estimate the direct medical costs of CABG in older patients (age 65 years or more) and to compare CABG costs for this age group with those for patients less than 65 years of age. METHODS: Direct medical costs were estimated from a sample of 205 older and 202 younger patients with triple-vessel or left main coronary artery disease who underwent isolated CABG at The Toronto Hospital, a tertiary care university-affiliated hospital, between Apr. 1, 1991, and Mar. 31, 1992. Costs are expressed in 1992 Canadian dollars from a third-party payer perspective. RESULTS: The mean costs of CABG in older and younger patients respectively were $16,500 and $15,600 for elective, uncomplicated cases, $23,200 and $19,200 for nonelective, uncomplicated cases, $29,200 and $20,300 for elective, complicated cases, and $33,600 and $23,700 for nonelective, complicated cases. Age remained a significant determinant of costs after adjustment for severity of heart disease and for comorbidity. Between 59% and 91% of the cost difference between older and younger patients was accounted for by higher intensive care unit and ward costs. INTERPRETATION: CABG was more costly in older people, especially in complicated cases, even after an attempt to adjust for severity of disease and comorbidity. Future studies should attempt to identify modifiable factors that contribute to longer intensive care and ward stays for older patients.  (+info)

Troponin assays are a relatively common laboratory diagnostic request in emergency medical admissions. Following cardiac injury these macromolecules diffuse into the cardiac interstitium with subsequent detection in the peripheral circulation. We have previously shown that a clinical decision to request high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hscTnT) was a prognostic marker and semi-quantitative mortality predictor in unselected emergency medical admissions [1]. Cardiac-specific troponins are useful because they convey prognostic information that can influence therapeutic decisions, [2] not alone for the diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes [3], but also in non-cardiac presentations [4-17].. ...

Emergency Use Listing granted to AstraZeneca and Serum Institute of India enabling global access to the vaccine. AstraZenecas COVID-19 vaccine has been granted Emergency Use Listing (EUL) by the World Health Organization (WHO) for active immunisation to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 18 years of age and older, including those over 65.. The authorisation of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca manufactured by AstraZeneca, and COVISHIELD manufactured by Serum Institute of India (SII), enables global access to the vaccine during the pandemic.. The EUL allows for two doses of the vaccine to be administered at a four to 12-week interval. This regimen was shown in clinical trials to be safe and effective in preventing symptomatic COVID-19, with no severe cases and no hospitalisations more than 14 days after the second dose. The WHOs Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) recommended a dosing interval of eight to 12 weeks. In addition, they also recommended use of the vaccine in ...
Chicago, USA , XINHUA , U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Monday authorized the emergency use of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in adolescents aged 12-15 for the prevention of COVID-19 vaccine caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).. The FDA has determined that Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine has met the statutory criteria to amend the emergency use authorization (EUA), and that the known and potential benefits of this vaccine in individuals 12 years of age and older outweigh the known and potential risks, FDA said in a news released posted on its website on Monday..

World Health Organization Grants Emergency Use Approval for Sinovac Vaccine | The World Health Organization announced that it has given emergency use approval for the Chinese vaccine Sinovac, which is still used in Turkey. Health Minister Dr. Fahrettin Koca,
The World Health Organization said Friday it has listed the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Chinas Sinopharm for emergency use, allowing it to be rolled out across the world. The vaccine, which is made by Beijing Bio-Institute of Biological Products Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China National Biotec Group, has the potential to rapidly accelerate COVID-19 vaccine access for countries seeking to protect health workers and populations at risk, said Dr Mariângela Simão, WHO Assistant-Director General for Access to Health Products. Simão said the agency will encourage the manufacturer to participate in the WHOs Covax program, which aims to get vaccines to poorer countries, that are lagging in the global vaccine push due to a lack of supply. The WHO has already granted emergency use authorization to vaccines developed by Pfizer and German partner BioNTech , AstraZeneca , Serum Institute of India, J&J unit Janssen and Moderna . Earlier this week, Reuters reported that a document it had obtained suggested the
Article Source. The Unites States Food and Drug Administration has authorized the emergency use of a second COVID-19 vaccine.. The FDA granted an emergency use authorization (EUA) to Moderna, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, yesterday. Like the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine approved for use on December 10, the Moderna vaccine uses messenger RNA.. The EUA comes as civil liberties advocates around the world raise concern over the possibility of COVID passports allowing people who receive a coronavirus vaccine to move around more freely than those who do not. It also comes as some physicians, such as Americas Frontline Doctors, have for months expressed their frustration over the FDAs refusal to grant EUA to the drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which has been around for decades to safely treat malaria and arthritis. Americas Frontline Doctors and others who have treated coronavirus patients say HCQ is effective at treating the disease.. On December 17, the Vaccines and Related Biological ...

With employers reopening fully and employees returning to the workplace from the pandemic, there has been a steady flow of challenges -- both legal filings and political and public opposition -- by individuals opposing mandatory requirements from employers and institutions to be vaccinated in order to return to work or school, subject to certain legal requirements under the ADA and valid religious objections. The legal challenges have centered, in large part, on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ability to issue emergency use authorization (EUA) for medical products in certain emergency circumstances. This was the procedure used for approval of the COVID-19 vaccines by the FDA of three vaccines in December 2020. In each of these authorizations, the FDA imposed the option to accept or refuse condition by requiring the distribution to potential vaccine recipients of a fact sheet that states (among other items): It is your choice to receive or not receive [the vaccine]. Should you decide ...
Health Canada Grants Emergency Use Authorization for N8 Medical CeraShield Endotracheal Tubes in Mechanically Ventilated COVID-19 Patients - Apr 02, 2020 - N8 Medical, LLC
By Daniel R. Lucey M.D., MPH, FIDSA. The only past U.S. Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization for any vaccine was in January 2005 for the licensed (since 1970) anthrax vaccine to be used in military personnel for prevention of inhalation anthrax for individuals between 18 and 65 years of age who are deemed by the Department of Defense to be at heightened risk of exposure due to attack with anthrax. This single FDA EUA for a vaccine was in effect for only one year.. Given that Phase III COVID-19 vaccine trials in the United States began July 27, a wide-reaching public dialogue should also begin as soon as possible in August on what criteria the FDA will use, and what it will mean, if the FDA grants EUA for a COVID-19 vaccine. Failure to engage in such a dialogue now will increase the risk of a lack of trust in the safety, efficacy and acceptability of any such vaccine receiving EUA.. One possible venue for such a public dialogue is the National Academy of Medicine, part of ...

Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have a favorable benefit-risk profile compared with vitamin K antagonists. However, the lack of specific reversal agents has made the management of some patients receiving long-term treatment with NOACs problematic in emergency situations such as major bleeding events or urgent procedures. Idarucizumab, a fully humanized Fab antibody fragment that binds specifically and with high affinity to dabigatran, was recently approved for use in adult patients treated with dabigatran when rapid reversal of its anticoagulant effect is required. Clinical experience with idarucizumab is currently limited. We report 11 real-life clinical cases in which idarucizumab was used after multidisciplinary consultation in a variety of emergency situations including severe postoperative bleeding, emergency high-bleeding-risk surgery (hip/spine surgery and neurosurgery), invasive diagnostic testing (lumbar puncture), intracranial bleeding (pre-pontine subarachnoid ...
