Patients who have had an episode of symptomatic venous thromboembolism are usually treated for at least five days with intravenous unfractionated heparin or subcutaneous low-molecular-weight heparin. Thereafter, they received a three month course of a vitamin K antagonist, with a dose adjusted to achieve an International Normalized Ratio between 2.0 and 3.0. Some patients have contraindications to vitamin K antagonists. In addition, treatment with vitamin K antagonists has the disadvantage of re...

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: To estimate the sensitivity and specificity of the various types of D-dimer test in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower limb in symptomatic outpatients with a clinical prediction rule score. Patients' clinical prediction rule scores will be used to assess D-dimer test accuracy in different risk groups. To investigate the following as potential sources of heterogeneity: age, sex, cancer...

Background Differences in blood pressure between arms are associated with increased cardiovascular mortality in cohorts with established vascular disease or substantially elevated cardiovascular risk. Aim To explore the association of inter-arm difference (IAD) with mortality in a community-dwelling cohort that is free of cardiovascular disease. Design and setting Cohort analysis of a randomised controlled trial in central Scotland, from April 1998 to October 2008. Method Volunteers from Lanarks...

Background The optimal duration of thromboprophylaxis after total hip or knee replacement, or hip fracture repair remains controversial. It is common practice to administer prophylaxis using low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) or unfractionated heparin (UFH) until discharge from hospital, usually seven to 14 days after surgery. International guidelines recommend extending thromboprophylaxis for up to 35 days following major orthopaedic surgery but the recommendation is weak due to moderate quali...

Intermittent claudication (IC) is pain in the leg that occurs on exercise and is relieved by rest. It is caused by an inadequate blood supply to the legs due to blockage of arteries. Conservative drug treatment is commonly used in an attempt to improve walking distance in these patients. Padma 28 is a Tibetan herbal preparation used for treating intermittent claudication. This review on the effects of Padma 28 includes five trials with a total of 365 participants. The review showed that Padma 28...

To identify common variants contributing to normal variation in two specific domains of cognitive functioning, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of executive functioning and information processing speed in non-demented older adults from the CHARGE (Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology) consortium. Neuropsychological testing was available for 5429–32 070 subjects of European ancestry aged 45 years or older, free of dementia and clinical stroke at the time...

Summary Background Statins increase the risk of new-onset type 2 diabetes mellitus. We aimed to assess whether this increase in risk is a consequence of inhibition of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-C oA reductase (HMGCR), the intended drug target. Methods We used single nucleotide polymorphisms in the HMGCR gene, rs17238484 ( for the main analysis) and rs12916 (for a subsidiary analysis) as proxies for HMGCR inhibition by statins. We examined associations of these variants with plasma lipid, glucose...
