BACKGROUND Despite the evolution of biologic agents, the use of traditional systemic immunosuppressants still account for a considerable proportion of systemic anti-psoriasis therapy. The risk of tuberculosis among psoriasis patients receiving such conventional immunosuppressants is not clearly understood. METHODS AND MATERIALS We used the retrospectively-collected data from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database to perform this prospective cohort study. We included 94,585 adult ...

The most common ventricular premature contractions (VPCs) originate from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), but the molecular mechanisms of altered cytoskeletons of VPC-induced cardiomyopathy remain unexplored. We created a RVOT bigeminy VPC pig model (n = 6 in each group). Echocardiography was performed. The histopathological alternations in the LV myocardium were analyzed, and next generation sequencing (NGS) and functional enrichment analyses were employed to identify the differentia...

Background: The objective is to study whether the cardiovascular protective effects of colchicines could be applied to non-cardiogenic ischemic stroke (IS) patients. Patients and Methods: Non-cardiogenic IS patients were identified from the National Health Insurance Research Database. Eligible patients were divided into chronic and non-chronic use categories based on their long-term status of colchicine use. The non-chronic use category was subdivided into (1) non-user and (2) new user groups wh...

A retrospective cohort study was conducted using claims data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance program to assess the effect of diabetic pay-for-performance (P4P) program on major adverse limb events (MALE) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This study included patients with T2DM who had completed or not completed a 1-year P4P program from 2002 to 2013. Propensity-score matching was used to balance the baseline characteristics be...

Objective null This study assesses the mortality outcomes of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in cancer patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) and atrial fibrillation (AF). null Methods null Medical records of cancer patients receiving NOACs for VTE or AF between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2016, were retrieved from Taiwan's National Health Institute Research Database. NOACs were compared using the inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) method. The primar...

ABSTRACT Globally, 32% to 70% patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) are prescribed oral anticoagulants (OACs) with warfarin for stroke prevention. However, patients with AF on OACs may experience intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which presents a treatment dilemma. We therefore investigated whether resuming OACs in these patients is beneficial. Electronic medical records of patients with AF on OACs discharged with ICH between 2001 and 2013 were retrieved from the Taiwan National Health Insurance R...

Little is known about whether venous thromboembolism (VTE) causes worse critical limb events in populations with atrial fibrillation (AF). A retrospective cohort study using claims data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance program between 2001 and 2013 compared AF patients with or without VTE. Outcomes were percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), amputation, systemic thromboembolism, all-cause mortality, cardiovascular death, ischemic stroke, and acute myocardial infarction. Patients (n ...

BACKGROUND Atrial flutter (AFL)-related tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (TICM) is a treatable cause of heart failure (HF). This study aims to explore the effect of AFL ablation on left ventricular (LV) function in right AFL patients with or without advanced heart diseases. METHODS Between January 2013 and December 2019, 149 patients underwent ablation for persistent AFL. Among them, 60 patients with persistent right atrial (RA) flutter had symptomatic HF and elevated natriuretic peptide level...

Background Patients with hyperthyroidism have higher risk of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the risk of thromboembolic event in patients with hyperthyroidism-related AF is controversial. Objectives The aim of the study was to examine the risk of thromboembolic events in AF patients with/without hyperthyroidism. Methods The national retrospective cohort study enrolled AF population was derived from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. The comparison between the AF patients ...

Background Benefits of patients with end-stage renal disease and atrial fibrillation undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) or hemodialysis are unknown. Methods and Results Patients undergoing dialysis were retrieved from Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database during 2001 to 2013 and separated into PD or hemodialysis. Primary outcomes were ischemic stroke/systemic embolism, major bleeding, and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). An inverse probability of treatment weighting based on propensi...
