  • Aortic Stenosis
    • Authors: Wilbert S. Aronow
      Pages: 174 - 183
      Abstract: Patients with aortic stenosis (AS) have an increased prevalence of coronary risk factors, coronary artery disease, and other atherosclerotic vascular disease and an increased incidence of coronary events and death. Statins may reduce the progression of AS. Angina pectoris, syncope or near syncope, and heart failure are the three classic manifestations of severe AS. Prolonged duration and late peaking of an aortic systolic ejection murmur best differentiate severe AS from mild AS on physical examination. Doppler echocardiography is used to diagnose the presence and severity of AS. Once symptoms develop, aortic valve replacement (AVR) should be performed in patients with severe or moderate AS. Warfarin should be administered indefinitely after AVR in patients with a mechanical aortic valve and in patients with a bioprosthetic aortic valve who have either atrial fibrillation, prior thromboembolism, left ventricular systolic dysfunction, or a hypercoagulable condition. Patients with a bioprosthetic aortic valve without any of these four risk factors should be treated with aspirin 75–100 mg daily.

  • Pulmonary Embolism—A State of the Clot Review
    • Authors: Ledys DiMarsico; Tyler Cymet
      Pages: 184 - 191
      Abstract: Abstract The assessment for pulmonary emboli is still Stone Age. History and physical findings are not sensitive or specific making it difficult to establish the diagnosis. PE is still potentially fatal. Death most often results from the severity of the clot, although delay in treatment may play a role. Clots, including deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary emboli, are the first disease that falls clearly under the Hospitalist specialty. An argument over what imaging is ideal continues to rage on, without any clear leader at this point. The CT scan and Ventilation/Perfusion scan are the two modalities being used most often. However without the use of a pretest probability the sensitivity and specificity can go down to less than 80%. The many new anticoagulants and oral therapies have widened the armamentarium, without increasing the success of therapy.

  • Clinical Update on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Bacterial Endocarditis
    • Authors: Patricia Dandache; Wilbert S. Aronow; George Sakoulas
      Pages: 192 - 207
      Abstract: Infective endocarditis (IE) represents the top of the pyramid of the relationship between humans and bacteria in that it is a less common form of infection than other localized infections in specific organ systems, but it may carry considerable morbidity and mortality. In a time when the practice of medicine is performed at the organ-system level through subspecialists, systemic diseases causing dysfunction in multiple organ systems like IE may be difficult to diagnose. The salient features of IE may present atypically or be obscured by the presence of preexisting and coexisting diseases. Early diagnosis of IE is important because of its high risk of morbidity and mortality. Management of the patient with IE is complex and requires interventions by internists, infectious disease specialists, cardiologists, and cardiothoracic surgeons. It represents one of only a few situations where bactericidal therapy is important to treatment efficacy. As such, the development of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria has the potential to impact the management of endocarditis most significantly. This review will touch on several aspects of endocarditis, including pathogenesis and treatment.

  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Primary Care Patients
    • Authors: David Bronson; Kathleen Franco; Kumar Budur
      Pages: 208 - 215
      Abstract: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common psychiatric condition. PTSD patients can present with a wide variety of symptoms, and these patients are also at a higher risk of other physical, psychiatric, and substance abuse problems. Recent advances in the treatment of this condition can help the majority of patients with PTSD. Early detection, initiation of appropriate treatment, and timely referral are crucial in the proper management of PTSD.

  • Treatment of Heart Failure with Normal Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction
    • Authors: Wilbert S. Aronow
      Pages: 223 - 230
      Abstract: Underlying causes and precipitating causes of heart failure (HF) should be treated when possible. Persons with HF and normal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) should have maintenance of sinus rhythm, treatment of hypertension, myocardial ischemia, dyslipidemia, and anemia, slowing of the ventricular rate below 90 bpm, and reduction of salt overload. First-line drug treatment in the management of these persons is the use of loop diuretics combined with beta blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. If persons are unable to tolerate ACE inhibitors because of cough, angioneurotic edema, rash, or altered taste sensation, angiotensin II type I receptor antagonists (ARBs) should be given. If HF persists despite diuretics, beta blockers, and ACE inhibitors or ARBs, isosorbide dinitrate plus hydralazine should be administered. Beta blockers, verapamil, diltiazem, and digoxin may be used to slow a rapid ventricular rate in persons with supraventricular tachyarrhythmias. Digoxin should not be used in persons with HF in sinus rhythm with normal LVEF. Exercise training should be encouraged in persons with mild to moderate HF to improve functional status and to decrease symptoms.

  • Diagnosis and Management of Pleural Effusions: A Practical Approach
    • Authors: Enrique Diaz-Guzman; Raed A. Dweik
      Pages: 237 - 246
      Abstract: Pleural effusion is defined as an abnormal amount of pleural fluid accumulation in the pleural space and is the result of an imbalance between excessive pleural fluid formation and pleural fluid absorption. Although the list of causes of pleural effusions is extensive, the great majority of the cases are caused by pneumonia, congestive heart failure, and malignancy. In this article, we provide an overview of the most common causes of pleural effusions likely to be encountered by the general practitioner, and a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of this common condition.

  • Management of Peripheral Arterial Disease of the Lower Extremities
    • Authors: Wilbert S. Aronow
      Pages: 247 - 256
      Abstract: Smoking should be stopped and hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, and hypothyroidism treated in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the lower extremities. Statins decrease the incidence of intermittent claudication and improve exercise duration until the onset of intermittent claudication in persons with PAD and hypercholesterolemia. Antiplatelet drugs such as aspirin or clopidogrel, especially clopidogrel, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, and statins should be given to all persons with PAD. Beta blockers should be given if coronary artery disease is present. Exercise rehabilitation programs and cilostazol increase exercise time until intermittent claudication develops. Chelation therapy should be avoided. Indications for lower extremity percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or bypass surgery are (1) incapacitating claudication in persons interfering with work or lifestyle, (2) limb salvage in persons with limb-threatening ischemia as manifested by rest pain, nonhealing ulcers, and/or infection or gangrene, and (3) vasculogenic impotence.

  • Treatment of Postmenopausal Osteoporosis
    • Authors: Gayatri Gupta; Wilbert S. Aronow
      Pages: 114 - 119
      Abstract: Abstract Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration with a resulting increase in bone fragility and hence susceptibility to fracture. Calcium and vitamin D are the most commonly used therapies for osteoporosis, although their efficacy in osteoporotic fracture prevention remains uncertain. Biphosphonates are the most frequently prescribed medication for treatment of osteoporosis and are often considered as first-line therapy for the treatment of osteoporosis. Currently, hormone replacement therapy is only approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for short-term treatment of severe postmenopausal symptoms with the lowest dose used for the shortest time. In view of its lack of effect on the prevention of nonvertebral fractures, the use of raloxifene should be limited to women with spinal osteoporosis. Most experts agree that it is preferable to treat osteoporosis with a more potent agent than calcitonin and manage the pain separately. Currently, the FDA recommends the use of parathyroid hormone for treatment of osteoporosis for a maximum of 2 years because of the concern of development of osteosarcoma.

  • Polyarteritis Nodosa
    • Authors: H. David Pettigrew; Suzanne S. Teuber; M. Eric Gershwin
      Pages: 144 - 149
      Abstract: Abstract Polyarteritis nodosa, as a diagnosis, has been progressively narrowed from a collection of ill-defined vasculitides to its current definition as a systemic transmural necrotizing vasculitis that usually affects medium-sized muscular arteries and sometimes small muscular arteries, commonly within the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, skin, nerves, joints, and muscles. In this review, we will highlight the clinical features and classification of this disease and emphasize that more accurate diagnosis of subtypes leads to more effective treatment.

  • Cardiovascular Manifestations Seen in Obstructive Sleep Apnea
    • Authors: Wilbert S. Aronow
      Pages: 82 - 86
      Abstract: Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have an increased prevalence of systemic and pulmonary hypertension, left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, LV systolic and diastolic dysfunction, and congestive heart failure, increased platelet aggregability, and increased susceptibility to thrombotic and embolic cardiac and cerebrovascular events. Patients with OSA have an increased prevalence of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, nocturnal angina, and myocardial ischemia, arrhythmias, and sudden cardiac death. Patients with OSA also have an increased prevalence of stroke. Treatment of OSA with continuous positive airway pressure improves cardiac efficiency in patients with heart failure, causes a reduction in the frequency of nocturnal ischemic ST-segment depression, relieves nocturnal angina, and causes a reduction in the occurrence of new cardiovascular events and an increase in the time to such events.

      Abstract: Acute retinal necrosis (ARN) is known to occur in conjunction with primary varicella or chickenpox infection. The majority of ARN cases reported in the literature were of milder form with mild to moderate vitritis, limited retinitis, and rare occurrence of retinal breaks or detachment that responded well to intravenous acyclovir, with or without oral prednisolone. We report a case of unilateral ARN with marked vitritis and retinal necrosis leading to retinal breaks following chickenpox in a 32-year-old healthy lady. This patient was successfully treated with intravenous acyclovir followed by oral acyclovir and orbital floor triamcinolone injections to contain the inflammation with barrier laser therapy to secure the retinal breaks with good visual outcome. This case is unusual in its severity, and to our knowledge, orbital floor triamcinolone therapy was not used earlier to contain ARN inflammation.
