Survival improves but prognostication tool sorely outdated Setting out to determine the survival of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center and their colleagues also discovered that an equation used for more than 20 years to predict survival is outdated. Accordingly, they developed and recently published a new survival prediction equation that will impact clinical practice and the drug development process. In PAH, the...

By Jorgensen, Randall S Maisto, Stephen A Prehypertension and heavy alcohol consumption increase the risk for primary hypertension (PH), a major predictor of cardiovascular- related morbidity and mortality. Although undergraduate college students have exhibited prehypertensive blood pressure (BP) levels and more than 40% of undergraduates drink heavily, few researchers have examined both risk factors in the university context. In this study, the authors collected BP and self-reported...

By Kondo, Y Muto, A; Dardik, A; Nishibe, M; Nishibe, T Aim. We investigated whether measurement of skin perfusion pressure (SPP), as measured by laser Doppler, can be used to evaluate the severity of limb ischemia in diabetes mellitus (DM) and/ or hemodialysis (HD) patients. Methods. From April 2004 to March 2005, the ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) and SPP were evaluated in 44 consecutive lower limbs with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and in 24 patients (21 males and 3 females, aged...
