【Abstract】 Background In China,with the intensification of population aging,the incidence of heart failure(HF) is on the rise year by year,with a 5-year mortality rate of over 50%.HF has become a “fortress” in the field of cardiovascular medicine that needs to be conquered.The prevention and treatment of HF are an important health task in our country,so understanding the clinical manifestations of HF is of great significance.Objective To explore the clinical characteristics of HF patients in southwest China,offering a scientific basis for the prevention and treatment of HF in this region.Methods This study was conducted following a retrospective design.Participants were 3 674 HF inpatients selected from 12 hospitals(the First Affiliated Hospital of Dali University,Baoshan People's Hospital,the First People's Hospital of Zhaotong,Dehong People's Hospital,Qujing First People's Hospital,Guizhou Provincial People's Hospital,Qiannan People's Hospital,Xingyi People's Hospital,Qiandongnan People's Hospital,Qianxinan People's Hospital,the People's Hospital of Guang'an City,the First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University) in Southwest China from January 2009 to October 2016.After excluding those with incomplete,missing or wrong data,3 516 cases were finally included.Sex,age,NYHA class,etiology,levels of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF),left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDD),brain natriuretic peptide (BNP),electrolytes,thyroxine,anemia,total bilirubin,uric acid and other clinical characteristics were compared between them.Results Among the participants,the percentages of NYHA class Ⅱ,Ⅲ,and Ⅳ HF were 25.40%(893/3 516),41.67%
(1 465/3 516) and 32.93%(1 158/3 516),respectively.The percentages of HF caused by coronary heart disease,hypertension and cardiomyopathy were 32.45%(1 142/3 516),19.45%(684/3 516) and 13.00%(457/3 516),respectively.Except for 777 cases,2 739 had echocardiography results.The percentages of reduced ejection fraction(HFrEF),mid-range ejection fraction(HFmrEF) and preserved ejection fraction(HFpEF) were 26.76%(733/2 739),12.23%(335/2 739)
and 61.01%(1 671/2 739),respectively.Worse cardiac function was associated with higher prevalence of HFrEF and HFmrEF,lower prevalence of HFpEF and LVEF,higher LVEDD and higher BNP(P<0.05).The prevalence of hypokalemia and hyperkalemia was 16.21%(481/2 967),and 1.38%(41/2 967),respectively.Worse cardiac function was associated with higher prevalence of hypokalemia(P<0.05).Serum sodium level varied significantly by NYHA class(P<0.05).NYHA class Ⅳ HF patients had lower average serum sodium level than NYHA class Ⅱ and Ⅲ HF patients(P<0.05).Except for 677 cases,all the cases (n=2 839) had serum calcium data.The prevalence of hypocalcemia and hypercalcemia was 66.43%
(1 886/2 839),and 2.40%(68/2 839),respectively.Cardiac function showed a negative association with serum calcium level (P<0.05).NYHA class was positively associated with the prevalence of ESS,but negatively associated with serum FT3 and TT3 levels(P<0.05).The prevalence of anemia changed according to NYHA class(P<0.05).NYHA class Ⅲ and Ⅳ HF patients had higher prevalence of anemia than NYHA class Ⅱ HF patients(P<0.01).The worse the cardiac function was,the higher the prevalence of hyperbilirubinemia and hyperuricemia,and serum total bilirubin and uric acid became (P<0.05).Conclusion Most of the HF patients in Southwest China are the young old.HF is mainly caused by coronary heart disease,with HFpEF as a major manifestation.Serum potassium,sodium and calcium levels are all associated with NYHA class.Moreover,the prevalence of ESS,anemia,hyperbilirubinemia and hyperuricemia is also associated with NYHA class.

【Abstract】 Background In recent years,the prevalence of diabetes is rising rapidly in China. Diabetic foot(DF)is one of the most severe chronic complications of diabetes. About 25% of patients with diabetes may have DF. Many factors affect the occurrence and development of DF. Lower limb artery occlusion and microcirculation dysfunction are mainly responsible for its prolonged treatment. As one method for detecting vascular lesions,transcutaneous oxygen measurement(TcPO2)can diagnose lower extremity arterial disease and evaluate microcirculation state. Objective To investigate the value of TcPO2 in predicting healing of DF.Methods A total of 102 patients with DF admitted in the Department of Endocrinology,Air Force General Hospital,PLA from February to June 2017 were enrolled.All subjects were divided into severe ischemia group (24 cases,TcPO2≤20 mm Hg),mild-to-moderate ischemia group (42 cases,20 mm Hg<TcPO2<40 mm Hg) and non-ischemia group (36 cases,TcPO2≥40 mm Hg).The general data and laboratory indexes of patients were collected.Ankle brachial index (ABI) of dorsum pedis and posterior tibia,toe-brachial index (TBI) and dorsal pedal artery blood flow were recorded.TcPO2 was detected and the healing was recorded after 12 weeks of follow-up.Results Age and HbA1c levels in severe ischemia group were higher than those in non-ischemia group,triacylglycerol (TG),ABI of dorsum pedis and TBI were lower than those in non-ischemia group,the percentage of lower extremity arterial occlusion was higher than that of mild-to-moderate ischemia group,and ABI of dorsum pedis was lower than those of mild-to-moderate ischemia group (P<0.05);the level of HbA1c in mild-to-moderate ischemia group was higher than that of non-ischemia group,and TBI of affected limb was lower than those of non-ischemia group (P<0.05).After 12-week follow-up,1 case (4.2%) healed in severe ischemia group,12 cases (28.6%) in mild-to-moderate ischemia group,and 31 cases (86.1%) in non-ischemia group.The healing rate after 12 weeks of severe ischemia group and mild-to-moderate ischemia group was lower than that of non-ischemic group (P<0.017).Receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve showed that the area under ROC curve (AUC) of TcPO2 and ABI of dorsum pedis and posterior tibia  predicting DF healing were 0.874,0.691 and 0.650,respectively. When the optimal critical value of TcPO2 was 38.5 mm Hg,Youden index was 0.687,sensitivity was 77.3%,and specificity was 91.4%. Age and HbA1c were negatively correlated to TcPO2 level (P<0.05),TG,ABI of posterior tibia,TBI,blood flow of dorsalis pedis artery were positively correlated to TcPO2 level (P<0.05),12-week healing rate was correlated to TcPO2 level (P<0.05).Conclusion TcPO2 is better in predicting DF healing.The higher the level of TcPO2,the more likely DF is to heal.

【Abstract】 Background A large number of studies have proved that levetiracetam(LEV)is safe and effective in the control of partial seizures in children,but studies in improving the number of electroencephalogram(EEG)discharge quantity,background activity and cognition are incomprehensive.In addition,there are few reports on the association between EEG electrophysiology and cognitive function.Objective To discuss the changes of clinical effect,the number of EEG discharge quantity,brainwave relative power and intelligence test of LEV monotherapy in partial seizures,and analyze the association of EEG result with the intelligence test and cognitive function.Methods A total of 100 children with partial seizures diagnosed and treated in outpatient and ward of Children's Hospital of Hebei Province were selected from December 2014 to December 2017.The children were divided into control group and observation group by random number table method,each with 50 cases.The control group were given oxcarbazepine(OXC)orally,and the observation group were given LEV orally.Before and 3-6 months after treatment,the two groups were monitored EEG,recorded interictal epileptiform activity(IEA),and calculated the δ-band,θ-band,α-band,β-band brainwave relative power and discharge index.Verbal intelligence quotient (VIQ),performance intelligence quotient(PIQ)and full intelligence quotient(FIQ)were tested by Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children(WISC).Subsequently we evaluated the clinical effect before and after the treatment according to seizure frequency,evaluated EEG according to IEA after treatment,and classified intelligence level according to FIQ.Results The total effective rate of the control group was 86.0%(43/50),and of the observation group was 82.0%(41/50).There was no statistically significant difference in total effective rate between the two groups(χ2=0.128,P=0.720).The total EEG effective rate of the observation group was 78.0%(39/50),which was higher than that of the control group of 52.0%(26/50)(χ2=7.429,P=0.006).After the treatment,the δ-band and θ-band relative power in the observation group was lower than those in the control group,and its β-band relative power was higher than that in the control group(P<0.05).δ-band andθ-band relative power in both groups after the treatment was lower than that before the treatment,and α-band relative power was higher than that before the treatment(P<0.05);the β-band relative power in the control group after the treatment was lower than that before the treatment(P<0.05);the β-band relative power in the observation group after treatment was higher than that before the treatment(P<0.05).The VIQ,PIQ and FIQ were significantly higher in the observation group than those in control group after the treatment(P<0.05).The VIQ,PIQ and FIQ were significantly higher after the treatment than those before the treatment in both groups(P<0.05).The FIQ of observation group was negatively correlated with EEG discharge index(r=-0.286,
P<0.05),the ΔFIQ was positively correlated with the Δα-band and Δβ-band relative power(r=0.285,P<0.05;r=0.296,P<0.05).Conclusion Monotherapy of LEV is effective in the treatment of all types of partial seizures in children.In addition,the results were significant in improving the number of EEG discharges,background activity and cognition,and the changes in neuro-physiological parameters in epileptic children may be associated with improved cognitive function.

【Abstract】 Background  With an increasing number of patients with chronic renal failure in recent years,peritoneal dialysis,as a simple alternative treatment for residual renal function,has attracted doctors’ attention. Peritoneal dialysis associated peritonitis(PDAP)is the major complication of peritoneal dialysis. Therefore,finding the risk factors of PDAP is crucial to avoid or delay the occurrence of PDAP and prolong the survival time of patients on peritoneal dialysis.Objective To analyze the risk factors and prognosis of early-onset PDAP. Methods We selected 116 patients with PDAP from Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University from January 2008 to June 2016,and divided them into the early-onset PDAP group (n=32) and late-onset PDAP group (n=84) based on the first onset time.We collected the clinical data,laboratory results and bacterial culture results.We recorded their outcomes and survival time obtained from a follow-up that ended on the date of death or ended by March 2017 or by the time that the peritoneal dialysis was superseded by long-term hemodialysis.Results The rates of violation of aseptic manipulation and living in bungalow in the early-onset PDAP group were much higher than those of the late-onset PDAP group (P<0.05).The differences in terms of peritoneal dialysis operators between the two groups were significant (P<0.05).The average hemoglobin and albumin levels of the early-onset PDAP group were obviously lower than those of the late-onset PDAP group (P<0.05).Of the 82 cases underwent bacterial culture of peritoneal dialysis fluid,59 (72.0%) had positive results,including 14 of early-onset PDAP and 45 of late-onset PDAP.The distribution of pathogens in the two groups showed no significant differences (χ2=0.982,P=0.612).Binary Logistic regression analysis revealed that violation of aseptic manipulation 〔OR=4.127,95%CI (1.353,12.589)〕,living in bungalow 〔OR=4.785,95%CI (1.455,15.846)〕,decreased hemoglobin levels 〔OR=0.947,95%CI (0.917,0.978)〕 and decreased albumin levels 〔OR=0.890,95%CI (0.799,0.978)〕 were the risk factors of early-onset PDAP (P<0.05).There were no significant differences in treatment outcomes between the two groups (χ2=1.488,P=0.475).Kaplan-Meier analysis showed that by the end of the follow-up,the median survival time of the early-onset PDAP group was shorter than that of the late-onset PDAP group 〔24.0 (11.2,36.8) months vs 40.0 (34.4,45.6) months(χ2=7.221,P=0.007)〕.Conclusion Patients with early-onset PDAP often have shorter survival time.Violation of aseptic manipulation,poor living environment,decreased hemoglobin and albumin were the independent risk factors of early-onset PDAP.It is necessary to take effective measures to prevent and decrease the incidence of early-onset PDAP and prolong the survival of such patients.

【Abstract】 Background Follow-up facilitates early detection of delayed complications and disease recurrence after lobectomy,but quite a few patients may lose contact through telephone interview during follow-up.Objective To explore reasons and influencing factors of lost to telephone follow-up after thoracoscopic lobectomy.Methods By retrospective study design,we reviewed medical records of 267 patients with non-small cell lung cancer who received thoracoscopic lobectomy in Lung Cancer Center and Department of Thoracic Surgery in West China Hospital of Sichuan University from November 2013 to March 2015,collected relevant sociodemographic and clinical materials which may affect the postoperative follow-up,and tried to identify influencing factors of lost to follow-up by multivariate Logistic analysis.Results Thirty-five patients (13.1%) were lost to follow-up.Among them,11(31.4%) had wrong or non-existence numbers,5(14.3%) had no answer,3(8.6%) had cell phone shutdown,3(8.6%) had phone overdue,1(2.8%) had phone with no signal,and 12(34.3%) were reluctant to respond.The results of univariate analysis of telephone follow-up after thoracoscopic lobectomy revealed that types of phone (χ2=7.950,P=0.019) and TNM staging (Z=7.823,P=0.005) showed statistical difference between patients who completed follow-up and who did not.The results of multivariate Logistic regression analysis further confirmed that types of phone  and TNM staging were independent prediction factors of follow-up responses (P<0.05).Conclusion For patients with lung cancer who are to receive thoracoscopic lobectomy,phone number changes,dissatisfaction of medical services and therapeutic effects,and distrust of the follow-up phone number are possible reasons of lost to follow-up.Patients who only leave landline phone numbers on their medical record and patients with advanced TNM stages are more likely to lost in the telephone follow-up.It is justified for health organizations to take more measures to improve response rate in those postoperative patients with high risks.

【Abstract】 Background Cancer-related fatigue(CRF),as a common,multidimensional,and subjective sense of tiredness related to cancer,severely affects the quality of life. Compared to standard chemotherapy,cord blood stem cell transplantation is a more intensive treatment that its side effects of chemotherapy,infection and graft-versus-host disease can easily appear,and can increase the risk of fatigue. Objective To investigate the status and correlation of CRF and quality of life in children with umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation from different ages.Methods A total of 32 cases with umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation admitted to Department of Hematology ,the First Affiliated Hospital of University of Science and Technology of China from November 2016 to January 2018 were selected by convenience sampling method.Patients were divided into children group (age of 8 to 12 years,15 cases) and adolescent group (age of 13 to 17 years,17 cases).Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory Multidimensional Fatigue Scale (PedsQLTM MFS) and PedsQLTM3.0 Cancer Module were used to evaluate the fatigue level and quality of life 1 to 3 days before discharge.Results There were no significant differences in general fatigue,cognitive fatigue and PedsQLTM MFS total score between children group and adolescent group (P>0.05).Rest fatigue score of children group was higher than that of adolescent group (P<0.05).No significant differences were found in pain,nausea and vomiting,procedure anxiety,treatment anxiety,worry,cognition,appearance,communication and PedsQLTM3.0 Cancer Module total score (P>0.05).The total score of PedsQLTM MFS was positively correlated with PedsQLTM3.0 Cancer Module (r=0.620,P<0.001).The score of general fatigue was associated with scores of nausea and vomiting,procedure anxiety,treatment anxiety,worry and cognition positively in all subjects (P<0.05).The score of rest fatigue was positively related with scores of pain,nausea and vomiting,procedure anxiety,treatment anxiety,worry and cognition (P<0.05).The score of cognitive fatigue was positively related with scores of procedure anxiety,treatment anxiety,worry,cognition,appearance and communication (P<0.05).Conclusion Patients with umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation suffered heavy CRF,especially in adolescent group.They have poor quality of life,positively associated with fatigue.

【Abstract】 Background The proportion of elderly patients in the surgical operation increases year by year and is accompanied by a higher incidence of adverse outcomes. More and more evidence shows that preoperative frailty is a risk factor for postoperative adverse outcomes. Objective To investigate preoperative frailty of elderly patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery and to explore its influencing factors. Methods A total of 156 elderly patients undergoing elective hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal surgery from July to December 2017 in Tianjin Third Central Hospital were selected according to the convenience sampling method. The data were investigated by questionnaires of general condition, comprehensive geriatric assessment and FRIED frailty phenotype and the influencing factors of preoperative frailty in elderly patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery were screened out by univariate analysis and ordered Logistic regression analysis. Results Among 156 elderly patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery, the number of robust, pre-fragile and fragile patients were 51 (32.7%), 48 (30.8%) and 57 (36.5%), respectively. The results of univariate analysis showed that there were significant differences in age, central obesity, educational level, marital status, living status, family monthly income, physical exercise, health self-assessment status, ability of daily living (ADL), instrumental ability of daily living (IADL), balance function, cognitive status, depression,innutrition, comorbidity, polypharmacy, decreased vision, hearing loss, oral problems, urinary incontinence, sleep disorders, and pain scores (P<0.05).The results of ordered Logistic regression analysis showed that aging, solitary living, low income, poor self-rated health, decreased ADL and balance function, dementia, depression and malnutrition were risk factors of preoperative frailty in elderly patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery (P<0.05).Conclusion Preoperative frailty in elderly patients undergoing elective surgery is not optimistic and affected by many factors. We should pay attention to patients' frailty, identify potential risks, and take multi-disciplinary,multi-angle measures to optimize preoperative conditions, so as to reduce the incidence of postoperative adverse events.

【Abstract】 Background Patients receiving spinal internal fixation and bone graft fusion need to stay in bed for 7 to 10 days,which increases the risk of pressure ulcers. The axial turning can effectively prevent pressure ulcers,but the previous turning pillow has only one angle,which cannot meet the needs of different patients in different periods for turning angle. Designed adjustable pillow can adjust the angle of support,which can meet the different needs of patients. Objective To analyze the effect of adjustable turning pillows on the rehabilitation of patients with idiopathic scoliosis after scoliosis correction.Methods A total of 61 patients with idiopathic scoliosis admitted to Department of Spine Surgery,Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital,the Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School from January 2015 to June 2016 were selected.They were randomly divided into fixation group (31 cases) and adjustment group (30 cases) by random number table method.The fixation group used the conventional R-type turning pillow for axis turning,and the adjustment group used the adjustable turning pillow (utility model patent number:ZL2014 2 0699793.6) in the postoperative period.Patients' general data were recorded,pain was evaluated by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS),comfort level by General Comfort Questionnaire (GCQ),and body turning frequency and pressure ulcers were recorded within 72 h after surgery.Results The differences in gender,age and Braden score were not statistically significant (P>0.05).The angle of Cobb was greater in the adjustment group than that in the fixation group (P<0.05).The VAS score of patients in the adjustment group was lower than that in the fixation group,GCQ score was higher than that in the fixation group,and body turning frequency was less than that in the fixation group (P<0.05).There was no pressure ulcer in both groups.Conclusion After operation,patients with scoliosis can use adjustable turning pillow to alleviate pain,reduce body turning frequency,improve the comfort level,and lessen the occurrence of pressure sores,thus improving their recovery.
