This study showed that normotensive non-dipper patients had inflammation as much as dipper hypertensive patients according to measurement of MPV, RDW systemic inflammation index, PLR, NLR levels.
Aorto-iliac occlusive disease (AIOD) is a common atherosclerotic disease causing significant morbidity. Transatlantic intersociety consensus for the management of peripheral arterial disease (TASC II) recommends endovascular therapy (ET) for better management of patients with lesions type A and B. With the advent of endovascular therapy, type C and D lesions management is becoming more feasible with endovascular therapy than open surgery for aorto-iliac occlusive disease. We aimed to evaluate patients with AIOD and to describe short-term outcome of endovascular treatment for such lesions.
Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is widely used as a mechanical support device. Current evidence after the IABP-SHOCK II trial is ambiguous. We evaluated the impact of IABP on hemodynamic parameters (Cardiac Output (CO), Cardiac Power Output (CPO) and Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR)) measured at 6 and 24 hours in patients presenting with cardiogenic shock (CS) with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) amongst Asian Indians.
We present the case of a pregnant woman with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome with recurrent episodes of tachycardia, refractory to antiarrhythmic drug therapy, who underwent catheter ablation of a left lateral accessory pathway without the use of fluoroscopy.
In this article we highlighted the blood pressure management in elderly patients with orthostatic hypotension.
