Conclusion: The approach of this method had small trauma,simple performance,could let patients leave bed to move about early and reduce the complications so that it might improve the elderly patient’s living quality.
Results The percentage of older patients and cardiac troponin I(TnI)level was higher(P<0.01),and left ventricular ejection fraction(LVEF)decreased more significantly in LA-increase group than those in LA-normal group(P<0.05).
Results The percentage of older patients were higher, and symptom-onset to balloon time delayed as well as left ventricular ejection fraction(LVEF) decreased in TnI-positive group compared with those in TnI-negative group(all P <0.05).
Background: With the aging population in the society, older patients constitute a substantial minority of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The mortality of these patients is high and they belong to high-risk group.
The early percutaneous coronary intervention in elderly patients with acute coronary syndrome
It was shown that early PCI might be an effective and safe method to treat elderly patients with ACS.
Correlations between the impairments of higher cortical functions (assessed by clinical scores and neuropsychological tests) and multichannel EEG spectra were analyzed in elderly patients with mild dementia and children with cognitive problems.
Thus, the 5-HTT gene polymorphisms do not affect the risk of depression but is possibly associated with specific clinical signs of the disease, at least in elderly patients.
The risk factors for RCIN are primarily pre-existing (even mild) renal dysfunction, diabetes mellitus, absolute or relative hypovolemia, nephrotoxic drugs, etc., particularly in elderly patients.
