RESUMO

Objetivo. Determinar el impacto pronóstico de la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica (EPOC) en los pacientes diagnosticados de enfermedad tromboembólica venosa (ETV) en servicios de urgencias (SU) españoles. Método. Análisis secundario del registro ESPHERIA que incluyó pacientes consecutivos con ETV sintomática en 53 SU. Resultados. Se incluyeron 801 pacientes de los que 71 (9%) tenían EPOC, siendo la tromboembolia pulmonar la forma de presentación más frecuente de ETV en este subgrupo de pacientes (77,5% vs 47,1%, p < 0,001). Los pacientes con EPOC tuvieron con más frecuencia disfunción de ventrículo derecho en la angiotomografía pulmonar (18,2% vs 13,1%; p < 0,001) y necesidad de soporte ventilatorio (7% vs 0,5%; p < 0,001). Los pacientes con ETV y EPOC tuvieron mayor incidencia de reingreso o mortalidad en el seguimiento a 180 días [HR 1,52 (IC 95% 1,00-2,29; p = 0,048)], comparados con los pacientes con ETV sin EPOC. Conclusiones. La EPOC tiene impacto pronóstico en los pacientes diagnosticados de ETV en SU españoles, en términos de mortalidad y reingreso hospitalario


Objective. To determine the impact of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on prognosis in patients diagnosed with venous thromboembolic disease (VTED) in Spanish emergency departments. Methods. Secondary analysis of data from the ESPHERIA (Spanish acronym for Risk Profile of Patients VTED Attended in Spanish Emergency Departments) registry. Results. A total of 801 patients, 71 (9%) with COPD, were included. Pulmonary thromboembolism was recorded in 77.%% of the patients with COPD (vs in 47.1% of patients without COPD; P<.001). Patients with COPD had evidence of right ventricular dysfunction on computed tomography angiography more often than other VTED patients (18.2% vs 13.1%; P<.001) and more often required ventilatory support (7% vs 0.5%; P<.001). VTED patients with COPD also had a higher rate of readmission or mortality at 180 days (hazard ratio, 1.52; 95% CI, 1.00-2.29; P = .048)] than patients without COPD. Conclusions. COPD affects the prognosis of patients diagnosed with VTED in Spanish emergency departments as evidenced by hospital readmission and mortality

RESUMO

AIMS: To investigate the efficacy and safety of early transition from hospital to ambulatory treatment in low-risk acute PE, using the oral factor Xa inhibitor rivaroxaban. METHODS AND RESULTS: We conducted a prospective multicentre single-arm investigator initiated and academically sponsored management trial in patients with acute low-risk PE (EudraCT Identifier 2013-001657-28). Eligibility criteria included absence of (i) haemodynamic instability, (ii) right ventricular dysfunction or intracardiac thrombi, and (iii) serious comorbidities. Up to two nights of hospital stay were permitted. Rivaroxaban was given at the approved dose for PE for ≥3 months. The primary outcome was symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) or PE-related death within 3 months of enrolment. An interim analysis was planned after the first 525 patients, with prespecified early termination of the study if the null hypothesis could be rejected at the level of α = 0.004 (<6 primary outcome events). From May 2014 through June 2018, consecutive patients were enrolled in seven countries. Of the 525 patients included in the interim analysis, three (0.6%; one-sided upper 99.6% confidence interval 2.1%) suffered symptomatic non-fatal VTE recurrence, a number sufficiently low to fulfil the condition for early termination of the trial. Major bleeding occurred in 6 (1.2%) of the 519 patients comprising the safety population. There were two cancer-related deaths (0.4%). CONCLUSION: Early discharge and home treatment with rivaroxaban is effective and safe in carefully selected patients with acute low-risk PE. The results of the present trial support the selection of appropriate patients for ambulatory treatment of PE.

RESUMO

Klinefelter syndrome (47, XXY in most cases) is a frequently underdiagnosed chromosomal anomaly associated with multiple comorbidities in adult life. Patients with Klinefelter syndrome have a higher risk of cancer. Specifically, these patients have a higher risk for mediastinal germ cell tumors. It is estimated that 8% of male patients with mediastinal tumors have Klinefelter. We report a 42-years-old male who suffered recurrent respiratory infections. During the study, a mediastinal mass was found, whose pathological study disclosed a type B thymoma. The patient had a history of infertility, high stature, gynecomastia, obesity with gynecoid distribution of body fat and testicular atrophy. A karyotype was requested (47, XXY), confirming the diagnosis of Klinefelter syndrome.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association between experience in the management of acute pulmonary embolism, reflected by hospital case volume, and mortality. DESIGN: Multinational population based cohort study using data from the Registro Informatizado de la Enfermedad TromboEmbólica (RIETE) registry between 1 January 2001 and 31 August 2018. SETTING: 353 hospitals in 16 countries. PARTICIPANTS: 39 257 consecutive patients with confirmed diagnosis of acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Pulmonary embolism related mortality within 30 days after diagnosis of the condition. RESULTS: Patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism admitted to high volume hospitals (>40 pulmonary embolisms per year) had a higher burden of comorbidities. A significant inverse association was seen between annual hospital volume and pulmonary embolism related mortality. Admission to hospitals in the highest quarter (that is, >40 pulmonary embolisms per year) was associated with a 44% reduction in the adjusted odds of pulmonary embolism related mortality at 30 days compared with admission to hospitals in the lowest quarter (<15 pulmonary embolisms per year; adjusted risk 1.3% v 2.3%; adjusted odds ratio 0.56 (95% confidence interval 0.33 to 0.95); P=0.03). Results were consistent in all sensitivity analyses. All cause mortality at 30 days was not significantly reduced between the two quarters (adjusted odds ratio 0.78 (0.50 to 1.22); P=0.28). Survivors showed little change in the odds of recurrent venous thromboembolism (odds ratio 0.76 (0.49 to 1.19)) or major bleeding (1.07 (0.77 to 1.47)) between the low and high volume hospitals. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with acute symptomatic pulmonary embolism, admission to high volume hospitals was associated with significant reductions in adjusted pulmonary embolism related mortality at 30 days. These findings could have implications for management strategies.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To assess the accuracy, safety, and efficiency of ultrasound images obtained by emergency physician to diagnose deep vein thrombosis (DVT). patients with acute heart failure (AHF) attended in a hospital emergency department (ED). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective multicenter cohort study. We assigned patients suspected of having DVT to an intervention or control group. Emergency physicians took ultrasound images that were later evaluated by a radiologist in the intervention group. In the control group, images were evaluated only by the radiologist. We analyzed patient, physician, and episode variables. Test results, times until imaging, and 30-day adverse events were also analyzed. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative likelihood ratios, and agreement between physicians and radiologists (κ statistic) were calculated. RESULTS: A total of 304 patients (209 in the intervention group and 95 controls) were included. The groups were comparable. The overall prevalence of DVT was 35.5% (95% CI, 30.3-41.0). The sensitivity of ultrasound images obtained by emergency physicians was superior in relation to experience: 71.4 (95% CI, 50.0-86.0) for those in a training course, 75.0 (95% CI, 80.0-95.4) for those with at least 2 months' practical experience, and 94.7 (95% CI, 82.7-98.5) for routine users. Specificity statistics for the 3 levels of physician experience were 83.3 (95% CI 55.2- 95.2), 100 (95% CI 83.0-100), and 96.6 (95% CI 88.4-99.0), respectively. The positive and negative likelihood ratios for ultrasound imaging by physicians were 27.94 and 0.054, respectively. The κ statistic was 0.80. Mean (SD) time until a physician took ultrasound images was 1.81 (1.46) hours versus 4.39 (1.81) hours until a radiologist obtained images (P = .007). Three deaths occurred within 30 days. They were not attributable to recurrence or bleeding. CONCLUSION: Ultrasound images taken by emergency physicians to diagnose DVT are accurate and safe and may be efficient. However, routine experience with ultrasound is necessary.

RESUMO

Objetivos: Evaluar la precisión, la seguridad y la eficiencia de la ecografía realizada por urgenciólogos para el diagnóstico de la trombosis venosa profunda (TVP). Métodos: Estudio prospectivo multicéntrico de cohortes que incluyó pacientes con sospecha de TVP asignados a un grupo intervención (evaluados ecográficamente por el urgenciólogo y posteriormente por el radiólogo) y a un grupo control (evaluados únicamente por el radiólogo). Se analizaron las variables relacionadas con el paciente, el urgenciólogo, el episodio, el resultado de la prueba y los tiempos de estancia y acontecimientos a 30 días. Se calcularon la sensibilidad, la especificidad, las razones de verosimilitud positiva y negativa, y el índice kappa. Resultados: Se incluyeron 304 pacientes (95 control, 209 intervención). Ambos grupos fueron comparables. La prevalencia de TVP en la cohorte global fue de 35,5% (IC 95% 30,3-41,0). La sensibilidad de la ecografía realizada por urgenciólogos fue superior según la experiencia-curso vs meses vs uso habitual: 71,4 (IC 95% 50,0-86,0) vs 75,0 (IC 95% 80,0-95,4) vs 94,7 (IC 95% 82,7-98,5), así como la especificidad 83,3 (IC 95% 55,2-95,2) vs 100 (IC 95% 83,0100) vs 96,6 (IC 95% 88,4-99,0). Las razones de verosimilitud positiva y negativa para la ecografía realizada por urgenciólogos fueron del 27,94 y del 0,054, respectivamente. El índice de kappa fue de 0,80. El tiempo hasta la realización de la ecografía por el urgenciólogo fue de 1,81 (DE 1,46) frente a 4,39 (DE 1,81) horas del radiólogo (p = 0,007). Durante el seguimiento a 30 días, se registraron 3 muertes, ninguna de ellas por recurrencia o hemorragia. Conclusión: La ecografía realizada por urgenciólogos para el diagnóstico de TVP es precisa, segura y podría resultar eficiente. Sin embargo, se requiere de experiencia basada en el uso habitual de esta técnica

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the prevalence and impact of risk of malnutrition on short-term mortality among seniors presenting with acute heart failure (AHF) in emergency setting. The objective was to determine the impact of risk of malnutrition on 30-day mortality risk among older patients who attended in Emergency Departments (EDs) for AHF. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of the OAK-3 Registry including all consecutive patients ≥65 years attending in 16 Spanish EDs for AHF. Risk of malnutrition was defined by the Mini Nutritional Assessment Short Form (MNA-SF) < 12 points. Unadjusted and adjusted logistic regression models were used to assess the association between risk of malnutrition and 30-day mortality. RESULTS: We included 749 patients (mean age: 85 (SD 6); 55.8% females). Risk of malnutrition was observed in 594 (79.3%) patients. The rate of 30-day mortality was 8.8%. After adjusting for MEESSI-AHF risk score clinical categories (model 1) and after adding all variables showing a significantly different distribution among groups (model 2), the risk of malnutrition was an independent factor associated with 30-day mortality (adjusted OR by model 1 = 3.4; 95%CI 1.2-9.7; p = .020 and adjusted OR by model 2 = 3.1; 95%CI 1.1-9.0; p = .033) compared to normal nutritional status. CONCLUSIONS: The risk of malnutrition assessed by the MNA-SF is associated with 30-day mortality in older patients with AHF who were attended in EDs. Routine screening of risk of malnutrition may help emergency physicians in decision-making and establishing a care plan.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Some previous studies have suggested a high prevalence of pulmonary embolism (PE) during exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (ECOPD). The SLICE trial aims to assess the efficacy and safety of an active strategy for the diagnosis and treatment of PE (vs usual care) in patients hospitalized because of ECOPD. METHODS: SLICE is a phase III, prospective, international, multicenter, randomized, open-label, and parallel-group trial. A total of 746 patients hospitalized because of ECOPD will be randomized in a 1:1 fashion to receive either an active strategy for the diagnosis and anticoagulant treatment of PE or usual care (ie, standard care without any diagnostic test for diagnosing PE). The primary outcome is a composite of all-cause death, non-fatal (recurrent) venous thromboembolism (VTE), or readmission for ECOPD within 90 days after enrollment. Secondary outcomes are (a) death from any cause within 90 days after enrollment, (b) non-fatal (recurrent) VTE within 90 days after enrollment, (c) readmission within 90 days after enrollment, and (d) length of hospital stay. RESULTS: Enrollment started in September 2014 and is expected to proceed until 2020. Median age of the first 443 patients was 71 years (interquartile range, 64-78), and 26% were female. CONCLUSIONS: This multicenter trial will determine the value of detecting PEs in patients with ECOPD. This has implications for COPD patient morbidity and mortality. TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: NCT02238639.

RESUMO

Aging is an important risk factor for patients with atrial fibrillation. The estimated prevalence of atrial fibrillation in patients aged ≥80 years is 9-10%, and is associated with a four to five fold increased risk of embolic stroke, and with an estimated increased stroke risk of 1.45-fold per decade in aging. Older age is also associated with an increased risk of major bleeding with oral anticoagulant therapy. This review will focus on the role of oral anticoagulation with new oral anticoagulants, non-vitamin K antagonist in populations with common comorbid conditions, including age, chronic kidney disease, coronary artery disease, on multiple medication, and frailty. In patients 75 years and older, randomised trials have shown new oral anticoagulants to be as effective as warfarin, or in some cases superior, with an overall better safety profile, consistently reducing rates of intracranial haemorrhages. Prior to considering oral anticoagulant therapy in an elderly frail patient, a comprehensive assessment should be performed to include the risks and benefits, stroke risk, baseline kidney function, cognitive status, mobility and fall risk, multiple medication, nutritional status assessment, and life expectancy.

RESUMO

AIM: To analyze treatment at discharge/follow-up of patients diagnosed with venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the emergency department (ED). MATERIALS & METHODS: Ambispective study (50 Spanish centers) of consecutive patients (October-December 2014) with VTE diagnosed in ED. RESULTS: VTE was diagnosed in 775 patients (295 pulmonary embolism [PE] without deep vein thrombosis [DVT], 389 DVT without PE and 91 PE + DVT); 95.5% received anticoagulants (90.7% low-molecular-weight heparin [LMWH], 4% LMWH + vitamin K antagonists and <1% direct oral anticoagulants). Overall, 23.3% were discharged from ED and 74.5% hospitalized (98.6% with PE and 50.4% with DVT). After discharge/90/180 days, 43.6/21.0/13.5% were taking LMWH, with similar rates in nononcologic patients. CONCLUSION: There is a poor adherence to international guidelines in management of VTE patients in Spain.

RESUMO

Background The natural history of patients with lung cancer and venous thromboembolism (VTE) has not been consistently evaluated. Methods We used the RIETE (Registro Informatizado Enfermedad TromboEmbólica) database to assess the clinical characteristics, time course, and outcomes during anticoagulation of lung cancer patients with acute, symptomatic VTE. Results As of May 2017, a total of 1,725 patients were recruited: 1,208 (70%) presented with pulmonary embolism (PE) and 517 with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Overall, 865 patients (50%) were diagnosed with cancer <3 months before, 1,270 (74%) had metastases, and 1,250 (72%) had no additional risk factors for VTE. During anticoagulation (median, 93 days), 166 patients had symptomatic VTE recurrences (recurrent DVT: 86, PE: 80), 63 had major bleeding (intracranial 11), and 870 died. The recurrence rate was twofold higher than the major bleeding rate during the first month, and over threefold higher beyond the first month. Fifty-seven patients died of PE and 15 died of bleeding. Most fatal PEs (84%) and most fatal bleeds (67%) occurred within the first month of therapy. Nine patients with fatal PE (16%) died within the first 24 hours. Of 72 patients dying of PE or bleeding, 15 (21%) had no metastases and 29 (40%) had the VTE shortly after surgery or immobility. Conclusion Active surveillance on early signs and/or symptoms of VTE in patients with recently diagnosed lung cancer and prescription of prophylaxis in those undergoing surgery or during periods of immobilization might likely help prevent VTE better, detect it earlier, and treat it more efficiently.

RESUMO

Objetivo: No se conocen suficientemente las características clínicas y el pronóstico de los pacientes con tromboembolia de pulmón (TEP) aguda sintomática asociada a los viajes prolongados (síndrome de clase turista [SCT]). Métodos: Se analizaron retrospectivamente las características basales de los pacientes con TEP aguda y se estratificaron según el factor de riesgo desencadenante. Se determinaron la mortalidad por todas las causas, la mortalidad por la propia TEP, las recurrencias trombóticas no fatales y los sangrados mayores no fatales durante los primeros 30 días de seguimiento. Resultados: De los 2.333 pacientes incluidos, un total de 124 (5,3%; intervalo de confianza del 95%: 4,4-6,3) fueron diagnosticados de TEP secundaria a SCT. Estos pacientes fueron más jóvenes, presentaron menos frecuentemente comorbilidad y más frecuentemente síncope (48% vs. 14%; p<0,001), taquicardia (37% vs. 21%; p<0,001), disfunción de ventrículo derecho (VD) (31% vs. 19%; p<0,01) y daño miocárdico (57% vs. 28%; p<0,001) que los demás pacientes con TEP. La mortalidad por todas las causas a 30 días fue significativamente menor para los pacientes con TEP secundaria a SCT (1,6% vs. 9,6%; p<0,01). La mortalidad a 30 días por TEP no fue diferente entre los dos grupos de pacientes (0,8% vs. 3,1%; p=0,18). Conclusiones: Los pacientes con TEP y SCT son más jóvenes y tienen menos comorbilidad que los demás pacientes con TEP. Aunque se presentan más frecuentemente con disfunción de VD y daño miocárdico, el pronóstico a corto plazo es excelente (AU)


Objective: Clinical presentation and short-term prognosis of patients with travel-associated acute pulmonary embolism (PE) (i.e., economy class syndrome [ECS]) is not well understood. Methods: In this retrospective cohort study of patients with acute PE identified from a single center registry, we assessed the clinical presentation and the association between ECS and the outcomes of all-cause mortality, PE-related mortality, nonfatal venous thromboembolism and nonfatal major bleeding rates through 30 days after initiation of PE treatment. Results: Of the 2,333 patients with acute symptomatic PE, 124 (5.3%; 95% confidence interval, 4.4-6.3%) had ECS. Patients with ECS were younger and had fewer comorbid diseases (recent bleeding, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure), but they presented with more signs of clinical severity (syncope [48% vs. 14%; P<.001], tachycardia [37% vs. 21%; P<.001], right ventricular dysfunction [31% vs. 19%; P<.01] and myocardial injury [57% vs. 28%; P<.001]) compared to those without ECS. Regression analyses showed a significantly lower risk of all-cause mortality for patients with ECS compared to patients without ECS (1.6% vs. 9.6%; P<.01). We did not detect a difference in PE-related mortality at 30 days between those with and those without ECS (0.8% vs. 3.1%; P=.18). Conclusions: PE patients with ECS are younger and have fewer comorbid diseases compared to those without ECS. Though they present with more signs of clinical severity, their short-term prognosis is excellent (AU)

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To develop the INFURG-SEMES scale (based on the emergency infections study of the Spanish Society of Emergency Medicine) using clinical and laboratory data to diagnose acute appendicitis (AA) in patients aged 2 to 20 years who were evaluated in hospital emergency departments and to compare its diagnostic yield to that of the Alvarado score. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective observational cohort study enrolling consecutive patients between the ages of 2 and 20 years who came to 4 hospital emergency departments with abdominal pain suggestive of AA and of less than 72 hours' duration. We collected demographic, clinical, analytic (white blood cell count, differential counts, and C-reactive protein [CRP] levels), and radiographic data (ultrasound and/or computed tomography scans). We also recorded surgical data if pertinent. The main outcome was a diagnosis of AA within 14 days of the index visit. RESULTS: We included 331 patients with a mean (SD) age of 11.8 (3.8) years; 175 (52.9%) were male. The final diagnosis was AA in 116 cases (35.0%). The INFURG-SEMES scale included the following predictors: male sex, right quadrant pain (right iliac fossa) on examination, pain on percussion, pain on walking, and elevated neutrophil count and CRP level. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves for the INFURG-SEMES scale and the Alvarado score, respectively, were 0.84 (95% CI, 0.79-0.88) and 0.77 (95% CI, 0.72-0.82). The difference was statistically significant (P=.002). CONCLUSION: The INFURG-SEMES scale may prove useful for diagnosing AA in patients aged between 2 and 20 years evaluated for abdominal pain in hospital emergency departments. The INFURG-SEMES score showed greater discrimination than the Alvarado score.
