Frailty is associated with older age and multimorbidity (two or more long-term conditions); however, little is known about its prevalence or effects on mortality in younger populations. This paper aims to examine the association between frailty, multimorbidity, specific long-term conditions, and mortality in a middle-aged and older aged population.
Among community-dwelling older adults, frailty is associated with heightened markers of inflammation and subsequent mortality. Although frailty is common among ESRD patients, the role of frailty and markers of inflammation in this population remains unclear. We quantified these associations in patients on the kidney transplant (KT) waitlist and tested whether frailty and/or markers of inflammation improve waitlist mortality risk prediction.
frailty identifies a subgroup of people with higher risk of morbidity and mortality.
There is a lack of studies on the prevalence of frailty, and the association between frailty and mortality in a Norwegian general population. Findings regarding sex differences in the association between frailty and mortality have been inconsistent. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between the frailty phenotype and all-cause mortality in men and women in a Norwegian cohort study.
Progressive physical frailty in older adults is associated with increased risk of falls, disability, institutionalization, and mortality. Although associations between diabetes and frailty have been observed, the impact of diabetes on frailty in older Hispanics is largely unexplored. We examine the association of diabetes on the odds of frailty among older Mexican Americans.
We examined individual components of the Mediterranean Diet (Med) and evaluated their relative contribution to mortality rates in older women with frailty. A sample (N = 10,431) included Women's Health Initiative Observational Study participants aged 65-84 y with complete frailty diagnostic criteria and dietary data. Frailty was assessed with modified Fried's criteria, and dietary data were collected through food frequency questionnaire. Over a mean follow-up of 12.4 y (range 3-21.0), 3,259 (31.2%) ...
Vitamin D deficiency is common in older adults and has been linked with frailty and obesity, but it remains to be studied whether frail obese older adults are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency. Therefore, the aim of this study is to explore the association between frailty, obesity indices and serum 25(OH)D concentrations.
The choice of revascularization of coronary patients, if it is well codified in the general population, remains in the elderly subject a daily dilemma for the clinician. We report 4 clinical cases (80 years and over) elective for coronary artery bypass or percutaneous coronary transluminal angioplasty (PTCA). No randomized studies dedicated to this population are available. Nevertheless, according to the registries, surgery versus PTCA has a superior benefit in the medium and long term, despite higher mor...
Understanding how components of frailty change over time and how they can be modeled as time-dependent predictors of mortality could lead to better risk prediction in the dialysis population.
Use of the frailty index to measure an accumulation of deficits has been proven a valuable method for identifying elderly people at risk for increased vulnerability, disease, injury, and mortality. However, complementary molecular frailty biomarkers or ideally biomarker panels have not yet been identified. We conducted a systematic search to identify biomarker candidates for a frailty biomarker panel.
Frailty is highly prevalent in old age and confers an important mortality risk. Although the causes of frailty are multiple, immuno-senescence (IS) - predominantly driven by cytomegalovirus (CMV) - has been implicated in its pathophysiology. Thus far, research examining the association between IS and frailty states is sparse and equivocal. On the other hand, evidence is mounting in support of the view that frailty can be reversed, especially for those in the pre-frail stage. Therefore, we aimed to clarify t...
Established surgical scores have limitations in delineating risk among candidates for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Assessment of frailty might help estimate themortality risk and identify patients likely to benefit from treatment. The aim of the study was to develop a frailty score to guide the decision for TAVI.
A validated model for predicting 1-year outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) does not exist. TAVR-specific risk models may benefit from frailty markers, and sarcopenia may represent an objective frailty marker. This study assessed the predictive ability of sarcopenia and frailty markers on 1-year mortality after TAVR.
Frailty predicts mortality in residential aged care, but the relationship with hospitalization is inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare whether frailty is associated with hospitalization and mortality among residents of aged care services.
It is unknown whether observational studies evaluating the association between antidiabetic medications and mortality adequately account for frailty. Our objectives were to evaluate if frailty was a potential confounder in the relationship between antidiabetic medication regimen and mortality and how well administrative and clinical electronic health record (EHR) data account for frailty.
As the aging of the population progresses in Japan, the nutritional problems in dialysis patients are being highlighted. Frailty is a clinical concept including body weight loss, muscle weakness, fatigability, decreased walking speed, and decreased physical activity, which means an intermediate concept between healthy subjects and disability subjects, indicating that their activities of daily living are not decreased but they cannot smoothly perform housework or exercise. Morbidity of dialysis patients is k...
Frail patients are increasingly presenting for both perioperative and intensive care, highlighting the need for simple, valid and scaleable frailty measurement. Frailty indexes comprehensively assess a range of deficits in health, and can incorporate routinely collected data. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the effect of frailty indexes on surgical and intensive care risk stratification and patient outcomes (mortality, complications, length of stay, and discharge location).
Patients with schizophrenia could have a higher risk of mortality. We compared the risk of mortality and the years of potential life lost (YPLL) associated with various causes of death between patients with schizophrenia and the general population. A total of 4,298 patients with schizophrenia were included. The cohort was linked to the Taiwan Death Register between 1998 and 2010 using personal identification numbers, which showed 367 patients with schizophrenia had died by the end of 2010. The standard mort...
The predictive value of frailty and comorbidity, in addition to more readily available information, is not widely studied. We determined the incremental predictive value of frailty and comorbidity for mortality and institutionalization across both short and long prediction periods in persons with dementia.
Climate change will substantially exacerbate extreme temperature and heatwaves. The impacts will be more intense across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), a region mostly characterized by hot and arid climate, already intolerable for human beings in many parts. In this study, daily climate data from 17 fine-resolution Regional Climate Models (RCMs) are acquired to calculate wet-bulb temperature and investigate the mortality risk for people aged over 65 years caused by excessive heat stress across th...
Frailty among elderly people leads to an increased risk for negative health outcomes. To prevent frailty, we need a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms and early detection of individuals at risk. Both may be served by identifying candidate (bio)markers, i.e. biomarkers and markers, for the physical, cognitive, and psychological frailty domains. We used univariate (Rank-ANOVA) and multivariate (elastic net) approaches on the RASIG study population (age range: 35-74 years, n = 2220) of the M...
Frailty is a clinical state of increased vulnerability from aging-associated decline. We aimed to determine if a Thai Frailty Index predicted all-cause mortality in community-dwelling older Thais when accounting for age, gender and socioeconomic status.
Cognitive frailty is characterized by the presence of cognitive impairment in exclusion of dementia. In line with other frailty domains, cognitive frailty is associated with negative outcomes. The Comprehensive Frailty Assessment Instrument (CFAI) measures 4 domains of frailty, namely physical, psychological, social, and environmental frailty. The absence of cognitive frailty is a limitation.
to evaluate the improvement in one-year mortality prediction after adding a 2-min cognitive screening to a simple 1-min frailty detection instrument. Secondary outcomes were new activities of daily living (ADL) disability and falls.
Although frailty is used to predict morbidity and mortality, its effect on the outcomes of acute type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) has not been examined. Thus, the objective was to evaluate the role of frailty in predicting postoperative morbidity and mortality in ATAAD.
