Global Sensory Impairment Predicts Morbidity and Mortality in Older U.S. Adults.

To evaluate global sensory impairment (GSI, an integrated measure of sensory dysfunction) as a predictor of physical function, cognition, overall health, and mortality.

Effect of a Multimodal Educational Intervention on Use of Urinary Catheters in Hospitalized Individuals.

Urinary catheters are frequently used in hospital inpatients despite their association with greater morbidity and mortality. Reducing their unnecessary use can improve patient care. The objective of the current study was to determine the effectiveness of a multimodal nursing and physician education intervention to reduce the unnecessary use of urinary catheters in adult inpatients.

Addition of albumin to Traditional Risk Score Improved Prediction of Mortality in Individuals Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

The ability of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE)-2 scores to predict outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is insufficient. Frailty and serum albumin as a frailty marker were shown to correlate with prognosis after TAVR. We sought to evaluate the additive value of serum albumin to STS and EuroSCORE-2 scores to predict mortality in individuals undergoing TAVR.

Self-Reported Function More Informative than Frailty Phenotype in Predicting Adverse Postoperative Course in Older Adults.

Current preoperative assessment tools such as the American College of Surgeons Surgical Risk Calculator (ACS Calculator) are suboptimal for evaluating older adults. The objective was to evaluate and compare the performance of the ACS Calculator for predicting risk of serious postoperative complications with the addition of self-reported physical function versus a frailty score.

Nocturia is Associated with Poor Sleep Quality Among Older Women in the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures.

(1) To examine relationships between frequency of nocturia and self-reported sleep quality and objective sleep measures in older women, and (2) to estimate the amount of variation in sleep measures that is specifically attributable to frequency of nocturia.

Prevalence and Correlates of Elder Abuse in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

To assess the prevalence of elder abuse and to investigate potential sociodemographic, health behavior, and medical correlates.

Racial Differences in the Association Between Apolipoprotein E Risk Alleles and Overall and Total Cardiovascular Mortality Over 18 Years.

To examine the difference in the association between apolipoprotein (APO)E allele and overall and cardiovascular mortality between African Americans (AAs) and European Americans (EAs).

Reply to: Re: Proton Pump Inhibitor Usage and Risk of Pneumonia in Dementia Patients.

Statins for Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Events and Mortality in Older Men.

We sought to determine whether statin use for primary prevention is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular events or mortality in older men.

Proton Pump Inhibitors and Risk of Pneumonia in Individuals with Dementia.

Nursing Home Use Across The Spectrum of Cognitive Decline: Merging Mayo Clinic Study of Aging With CMS MDS Assessments.

Objective, complete estimates of nursing home (NH) use across the spectrum of cognitive decline are needed to help predict future care needs and inform economic models constructed to assess interventions to reduce care needs.

Statins for Primary Prevention in Older Adults: An Unresolved Conundrum.

Geriatrics Literature 2016 Year in Review.

We present 10 of the most effective articles from 2016 in geriatric medicine. They address wide-ranging topics including the use of antipsychotics for delirium in palliative care, fall prevention and mobility interventions, efficacy and potential risks of testosterone, cranberry capsules and their effect on bacteriuria and pyuria, beta-blockers after acute myocardial infarction in a nursing home population, the effect of a healthy lifestyle on disability, a goals-of-care intervention in individuals with adv...

Associations Between Falls and Driving Outcomes in Older Adults: Systematic Review and Metaanalysis.

To examine associations between falls and subsequent motor vehicle crashes (MVCs), crash-related injuries, driving performance, and driving behavior.

Treatment Effectiveness in Heart Failure with Comorbidity: Lung Disease and Kidney Disease.

To assess the clinical effectiveness of beta-blocker therapy in individuals with heart failure (HF) and chronic lung disease and of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-Is) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) in individuals with HF and chronic kidney disease.

Patterns and Predictors of Frailty Transitions in Older Men: The Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study.

To describe the natural history of frailty transitions in a large cohort of community-dwelling older men and identify predictors associated with progression to or improvement from states of greater frailty.

Getting Underneath Observed Frailty Transitions: Meaningful Change, Prevention, and Intervention.

The Clinical Potential of Senolytic Drugs.

Senolytic drugs are agents that selectively induce apoptosis of senescent cells. These cells accumulate in many tissues with aging and at sites of pathology in multiple chronic diseases. In studies in animals, targeting senescent cells using genetic or pharmacological approaches delays, prevents, or alleviates multiple age-related phenotypes, chronic diseases, geriatric syndromes, and loss of physiological resilience. Among the chronic conditions successfully treated by depleting senescent cells in preclini...

Introduction of Abstracts to be Presented at the Sixth Chinese Congress on Gerontology and Health Industry.

Abstracts from the Sixth Chinese Congress on Gerontology and Health Industry.

Do Safety Culture Scores in Nursing Homes Depend on Job Role and Ownership? Results from a National Survey.

To identify facility- and individual-level predictors of nursing home safety culture.

Development and Validation of a Geriatrics Knowledge Test to Evaluate Geriatrics Fellowship Programs.

Although the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requires that geriatrics fellowship programs be evaluated, evaluation is challenging because of lack of appropriate instruments. The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a geriatrics knowledge test appropriate for evaluation of geriatrics fellowship programs.

Is Alzheimer's Prevention Possible Today?

Trends in Aging-Related Services During Nephrectomy: Implications for Surgery in an Aging Population.

To characterize the extent to which geriatric and related healthcare services are provided to older adults undergoing surgery for kidney cancer, a potential growth area in geriatrics and oncology.
