INTRODUCTION Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a significant comorbidity in aortic stenosis (AS) patients. We examined the impact of baseline CKD, postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) and CKD progression on clinical outcomes in patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Consecutive patients with severe AS who underwent TAVI were classified into CKD stages 1-2 (≥60 mL/min/1.72m2), 3 (30-59 mL/min/1.73m2) and 4-5 (<30 mL/min/1.73m2 or dialysis) ba...

This review provides a clinically relevant overview of the disease and discusses the usefulness and limitations of the various investigational and treatment options. METHODS A PubMed search on articles relevant to PE, pulmonary hypertension, CTEPH, pulmonary endarterectomy, and balloon pulmonary angioplas...
Transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)-caused by novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2-through aerosolised saliva and respiratory droplets is possible when aerosol-generating dental procedures are performed. Consequently, dental practitioners are at increased risk of being infected when treating COVID-19 patients. A comprehensive review of the current literature on precautions when providing dental care during the COVID-19 pandemic is discussed and recommendations fo...

MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty Singaporeans (Chinese: 20; Malay: 20; Indian: 20) completed semi-structured interviews in which they were asked about health concepts which were important to them and the relevance and comprehensiveness of the ...
INTRODUCTION Sustained low efficiency dialysis (SLED) is an increasingly common treatment option for acute kidney injury (AKI) patients, but there are few studies examining the survival and predictive outcome of this therapy. The study aims to evaluate survival, pre-SLED predictors and complications associated with SLED. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of 91 patients with AKI treated with SLED in a tertiary hospital from January 2014 to August 2018. The primary outcom...

INTRODUCTION Nursing home (NH) residents with out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) have unique resuscitation priorities. This study aimed to describe OHCA characteristics in NH residents and identify independent predictors of survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS OHCA cases between 2010-16 in the Pan-Asian Resuscitation Outcomes Study were retrospectively analysed. Patients aged <18 years old and non-emergency cases were excluded. Primary outcome was survival at discharge or 30 days. Good neurologic...
