Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and Diabetes mellitus (DM) represent major public health challenges and are tightly associated. To facilitate early diagnosis, HbA has been implemented as the preferred diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of type 2 DM. HbA , fasting plasma glucose (FPG) value and 2-hour post glucose load values were compared and evaluated to find which test best predicted mortality in patients with PAD.

and Purpose: Island sign is a novel imaging predictor for early hematoma growth, implying multifocal active bleeding. And the prognostic value of island sign for long-term outcome in patients with int...
Patient-Reported Quality of Life as a Predictor of Mortality and Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia's During 7 Years' Follow-Up in Patients With an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (from the MIDAS Study).
Preliminary evidence suggests that poor patient-reported quality of life (QoL) predicts mortality on the short term in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). It is unclear if t...
The short-term effects of magnesium sulfate infusion during surgery are well known. However, the long-term outcomes of intraoperative magnesium sulfate infusion remain unknown. Medical records of pati...
Although some underpowered studies have proven that increased red blood cell distribution width (RDW) may be associated with short-term prognosis of sepsis, the long-term prognostic value of RDW remai...
The protective effect of diabetes on the prevalence and growth rate in AAA has been shown in several recent studies. Whether the benefits of diabetes exist in patients following AAA repair is unknown....
Postoperative atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter (POAF) is the most common complication after cardiac surgery requiring intervention or prolonged hospital stay. POAF is associated wit...
Acute kidney injury is associated with increased short-term and long-term morbidity and mortality. Long-term data is lacking in low to middle-income countries. Our study aims to follow the...
Although most patients with hypercortisolism can be diagnosed and treated the long-term effects of hypercortisolism and its treatment are unknown. This study will attempt to answer the fo...
As the investigators know, postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a fairly well-documented clinical phenomenon, which affect patients' short-term and long-term outcome. Most patient...
It is a multicenter, prospective, observational study of standard care. This study analyses the care of patients on long term effective anticoagulation therapy (ADELC) during a primary hip...

Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.
Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
An acute, transmissible, infectious disease associated with high MORTALITY and MORBIDITY in young turkeys (poults). It is characterized by DIARRHEA; ANOREXIA; growth depression, and immune dysfunction. The cause is unknown but astroviruses (AVASTROVIRUS) and coronaviruses (CORONAVIRUS, TURKEY) have been isolated from diseased poults and are thought to cause the enteritis and increased susceptibility to bacterial infections.
A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
