BACKGROUND Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is prevalent in not only older adults, but also patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and is associated with higher risks of morbidity and mortality. AIMS The aim of the present study is to determine associations between EDS and nutritional status and serum nutrient levels in older patients with CKD. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 367 patients (aged ≥ 65 years) with CKD (eGFR 30 mg/day of albuminuria for > 3 months). EDS was record...

Hypertonic dextrose prolotherapy (HDP) is an injection of a concentrated dextrose solution for the purpose of local treatment of musculoskeletal pain and possible enhancement of repair mechanisms. This systematic review and meta-analysis examines the clinical utility of HDP injection for treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA). Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) utilizing HDP to treat knee OA were retrieved from MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library (CENTRAL). Identification and inclusion of RCTs...

Advanced age is an important factor affecting Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) risk and outcome. While fever and leukocytosis are prominent findings in young individuals with CDI, they are usually blunted in the elderly. Furthermore, chronic kidney disease often exists among this population prior to the CDI episode onset. We aimed to examine whether the accepted definition of severe CDI (leukocytosis ≥ 15,000 cells/μl or serum creatinine > 1.5 mg/dl) predicts poor outcomes in the elderly...
BACKGROUND This investigation aimed to examine and compare the predictive value of MADIT-II, FADES, PACE and SHOCKED scores in predicting one-year and long-term all-cause mortality in implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implanted patients, 75 years old and older, since there has been an area of uncertainty about the utility and usefulness of these available risk scores in such cases. METHODS In this observational, retrospective study, 189 ICD implanted geriatric patients were divided in...

BACKGROUND Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) based exercises have been widely used in the prevention and treatment of balance, cardiopulmonary, and other related diseases in older adults. However, there seems to be no consensus on the improvement and comparison of physical performance, balance, and muscle strength in the elderly population. OBJECTIVES To systematically examine the impact of different TCM-based exercises on physical performance, balance, and muscle strength outcomes in the elder...

Background null Among elderly orthopedic trauma patients, the prevalence of delirium during hospitalization has been reported to be as high as 60%. Frail elderly patients have an increased risk of delirium after elective surgery; however, such an association remains underexplored among trauma patients. null Aim null Our goal was to investigate whether preoperative frailty is associated with postoperative delirium (POD) in elderly orthopedic trauma patients. null Methods null We conducted a singl...

BACKGROUND: Outdoor mobility enables participation in essential out-of-home activities in old age. AIM: To compare changes in different aspects of outdoor mobility during COVID-19 restrictions versus two years before according to self-reported walking. METHODS: Community-dwelling participants of AGNES study (2017-2018, initial age 75-85) responded to AGNES-COVID-19 postal survey in spring 2020 (N = 809). Life-space mobility, autonomy in participation outdoors, and self-reported physical activity...
