Clinical outcomes of solitary atrial flutter patients using anticoagulation therapy: a national cohort study

Anticoagulation therapy is indicated to prevent stroke in atrial flutter (AFL) and atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. However, the outcomes of solitary AFL patients may differ from those with AFL who develop AF during follow-up. This study aimed to investigate the differences in clinical outcomes: (i) among patients with solitary AFL, AF, and AFL developing AF thereafter and (ii...

Cumulative immunosuppressant exposure is associated with diversified cancer risk among 14 832 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: a nested case–control study

Objectives. Immunosuppressive therapy is necessary to alter the natural course of SLE. However, immunosuppressant-related cancer risk is a major concern. The aim of this study was to determine whether immunosuppressant use is associated with cancer risk in SLE.

Ezetimibe-Simvastatin Therapy Reduce Recurrent Ischemic Stroke Risks in Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Statin is the main lipid-lowering therapy for type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. Recent evidence suggested the cardiovascular protective effects of ezetimibe-simvastatin in acute coronary syndrome patients.

Obstructive sleep apnea: a stand-alone risk factor for chronic kidney disease

Background. Previous studies have found an association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, subjects with confounding factors such as diabetes and hypertension were not excluded. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether patients with OSA without meeting criteria for diabetes or hypertension would also show increased...

Role of uric acid in the link between arterial stiffness and cardiac hypertrophy: a cross-sectional study

Objectives. Hyperuricaemia has been linked to atherosclerosis; however, there is limited evidence about its association with arterial stiffness and cardiac hypertrophy, which are associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. We studied the association of hyperuricaemia with an increased risk of arterial stiffness and cardiac hypertrophy in a population participating in a...
