Urban-Hazard Risk Analysis: Mapping of Heat-Related Risks in the Elderly in Major Italian Cities

Background Short-term impacts of high temperatures on the elderly are well known. Even though Italy has the highest proportion of elderly citizens in Europe, there is a lack of information on spatial heat-related elderly risks. Objectives Development of high-resolution, heat-related urban risk maps regarding the elderly population (≥65). Methods A long time-series (2001–2013) of...

H3M2: detection of runs of homozygosity from whole-exome sequencing data

Motivation: Runs of homozygosity (ROH) are sizable chromosomal stretches of homozygous genotypes, ranging in length from tens of kilobases to megabases. ROHs can be relevant for population and medical genetics, playing a role in predisposition to both rare and common disorders. ROHs are commonly detected by single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) microarrays, but attempts have been...

Contact forces during hybrid atrial fibrillation ablation: an in vitro evaluation

PurposeData on epicardial contact force efficacy in dual epicardial–endocardial atrial fibrillation ablation procedures are lacking. We present an in vitro study on the importance of epicardial and endocardial contact forces during this procedure.MethodsThe in vitro setup consists of two separate chambers, mimicking the endocardial and epicardial sides of the heart. A circuit...

Cardiorenal Syndrome Caused by Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction

Since cardiorenal dysfunction is usually secondary to multiple factors acting in concert (and not only reduced cardiac output) in the present paper we are going to focus on the interrelationship between heart failure with normal ejection fraction and the development of cardiorenal syndrome. The coexistence of renal impairment in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (CRS...

The Impact of Hypertension on Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes

Arterial chronic hypertension (HTN) is a well-known cardiovascular risk factor for development of atherosclerosis. In order to explain the relation between HTN and acute coronary syndromes the following factors should be considered: (1) risk factors are shared by the diseases, such as genetic risk, insulin resistance, sympathetic hyperactivity, and vasoactive substances (i.e...

Commercial dressings for burns versus sweet ancient remedy

dressing for a patient. Now, coming back to your dinner, before a colleague rings the calling bell near your door, what you should do? Honey or the nearest pharmacy? A clinicians point of view Gian Franco ... Gensini, Roberto Gusinu, Andrea A. Conti Honey, a sweet substance elaborated by honey bees, and coming from the nectar of flowers, has been considered as a curative remedy from time immemorial [34

Minimally invasive thoracoscopic hybrid treatment of lone atrial fibrillation: early results of monopolar versus bipolar radiofrequency source

We compare results of a hybrid monopolar vs. a hybrid bipolar thoracoscopic approach employing radiofrequency (RF) sources for the surgical treatment of lone atrial fibrillation (LAF). From January 2008 to June 2010, 19 patients (35.1%) underwent RF monopolar/monolateral RF ablation, whereas 35 (64.9%) had RF bipolar/bilateral thoracoscopic ablation. One-year time-related...
