BACKGROUND: Although the effectiveness and safety of ticagrelor versus clopidogrel may differ in patients with chronic liver disease, there is a scarcity of evidence comparing ticagrelor and clopidogrel in patients with chronic liver disease. We aimed to evaluate the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and major bleeding associated with ticagrelor versus clopidogrel in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) due to acute coronary syndrome by chronic liver disease status...

BACKGROUND: Readmission within 30 days is a prevalent issue among elderly patients, linked to unfavorable health outcomes. Our objective was to develop and validate multimodal machine learning models for predicting 30-day readmission risk in elderly patients discharged from internal medicine departments. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study which included elderly patients aged 75 or older, who were hospitalized at the Hadassah Medical Center internal medicine departments between 2014 and 2020...

BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is associated with a poor prognosis. There is a lack of data examining the outcomes and readmission rates of sarcoidosis patients with heart failure (SwHF) and without heart failure (SwoHF). We aimed to compare the impact of non-ischemic heart failure on outcomes and readmissions in these two groups. METHODS: The US Nationwide Readmission Database was queried from 2010-2019 for SwHF and SwoHF patients identified using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth and Tenth Editions...

Hypertension is a primary contributor to cardiovascular disease, and the leading risk factor for loss of quality adjusted life years. Up to 50% of the cases of hypertension in the US remain uncontrolled. Additionally, 8-18% of the hypertensive population have resistant hypertension, uncontrolled pressure despite three different anti-hypertensive agents. Recently, catheter-based, percutaneous renal denervation emerged as a method for ablating renal sympathetic nerves for difficult to control hypertension. Initial randomized (non-sham) trials and registry analyses showed impressive benefit, but the first sham-controlled randomized controlled trial (RCT) using monopolar radiofrequency ablation showed limited benefit...

PURPOSE: Long COVID and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) patients experience multiple complex symptoms, potentially linked to imbalances in brain neurochemicals. This study aims to measure brain neurochemical levels in long COVID and ME/CFS patients as well as healthy controls to investigate associations with severity measures. METHODS: Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) data was acquired with a 3T Prisma MRI scanner. We measured absolute levels of brain neurochemicals in the posterior cingulate cortex in long COVID (n=17), ME/CFS (n=17), and healthy controls (n=10) using Osprey software...

BACKGROUND: Higher total serum cholesterol is associated with lower mortality in heart failure. Evaluating associations between lipoprotein subfractions and mortality among people with heart failure may provide insights into this observation. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled a community cohort of people with heart failure from 2003 to 2012 and assessed vital status through 2021. Plasma collected at enrollment was used to measure lipoprotein subfractions via nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive dysfunction is regarded as one of the most severe aftereffects following coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Eye movements, controlled by various brain regions, including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and frontal-thalamic circuits, offer a potential metric for evaluating cognitive dysfunction. We aimed to examine the utility of eye movement measurements in identifying cognitive impairments in long COVID patients. METHODS: We recruited 40 long COVID patients experiencing subjective cognitive complaints and 40 healthy controls and used a certified eye-tracking medical device to record saccades and antisaccades...

BACKGROUND: Serial blood pressure and heart rate measurements, particularly obtained by the patents at home, are currently recommended for the management of patients. METHODS: Home blood pressure and heart rate measurements were obtained by an 81-year old husband and his 74-year old wife in the morning and evening, over the course for an entire month. RESULTS: Morning and evening systolic blood pressure (129.9±5.5, 125.9±10.2), and diastolic blood pressure (69...

REVIEW
Ami Schattner
The potential of primary prevention to prevent, delay, or ameliorate disease is immense. However, the total spending on preventive services in the US remains astoundingly small and represents a meager 3.5% of total health care spending. Moreover, training focused on prevention in medical schools is often neglected, and time-constrained primary providers frequently omit effective preventive and early detection measures, or perform them perfunctorily. Indeed, preventable conditions of serious consequences including 'premature' mortality, cardiovascular events, and major organ failure are ubiquitous with the global obesity and diabetes epidemics, and the ongoing high prevalence of noxious habits and drug abuse...
