Article
Background: Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have a better risk benefit profile in Asian patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Whether treatment effects could be modified by drug class and dependency on renal elimination of studied agents has not yet been explored. Methods: We searched PubMed, CENTRAL, and CINAHL databases through November 2...

Background/purpose: Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have a half-life of around 12 h. We aimed to clarify if there was any effect modification by dosing (once- or twice-daily) regimens in Asian patients. Methods: Phase III randomized controlled trials of NOACs compared with warfarin in Asian patients with atrial fibrillation...

Background: To date, it remains unsettled whether aortic arch calcification (AAC) has prognostic value in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Methods: From January 1 to December 31, 2013, a total of 225 patients with acute coronary syndrome (mean age 72 ± 26 years, 75% male) were enrolled in this study. Patients admitted to the coronary care...
Article
Background: Epicardial adipose tissue is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). Circulating endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) level represents a marker of endothelial dysfunction and vascular health. However, the relationship between epicardial fat and circulating EPC remains unknown. This study aimed to investigate association between ech...
Article
Background: Thromboembolism prevention is central to atrial fibrillation (AF) management. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have primarily focused on stroke prevention. Detailed analyses of extracranial thromboembolic events, particularly in patients with low dose non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs), are scarce. Objectives: To...

Article
Background: Recent studies have elucidated the vascular protective effects of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4 inhibitors). However, to date no large-scale studies have been carried out to determine the impact of DPP-4 inhibitors on the occurrence of peripheral arterial disease, and lower extremity amputation risk in patients with type 2 d...
Article
Background: Although randomized controlled trials (RCTs) indicated that standard dose non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) were more compelling, low dose NOACs are commonly used in clinical practice in Asia. Objective: We aimed to assess the relative therapeutic benefit and risk of standard versus low dose NOACs in Asian patients...

Although the association of hyperuricemia and cardiovascular diseases is well established by previous research studies, the relationship between gout and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) remains unclear. We conducted a nationwide longitudinal cohort study to investigate the relationship between gout and DVT. We used the Taiwan National Health Insurance R...

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of dementia. However, limited data are available on the predictors of dementia in patients with AF. This study aimed to evaluate whether the CHADS2 score could be a useful tool for risk stratification with regard to dementia occurrence among patients with AF. Methods: AF p...

Thiazide diuretics are associated with an increased risk of hyponatremia. The aim of this study was to investigate possible predictors of thiazide-induced hyponatremia. A total of 48 patients admitted to the ward or to the emergency department due to severe thiazide-induced hyponatremia (Na < 125 mmol/L) were enrolled in our study as the case group...

Reduced number and impaired function of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in patients with chronic kidney disease have been reported. However, there is little data about the association between circulating EPC levels and risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between circu...
Article
Full-text available
Possible association between diabetes mellitus (DM) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) has been controversial. This study used a nationwide population-based dataset to investigate the relationship between DM and subsequent AD incidence. Data were collected from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database, which released a cohort dataset of 1,000...

Objective: Although the major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) is cardiovascular disease, DM is also associated with certain site-specific cancers. However, whether DM is associated with an increased risk of cancer of the digestive tract remains undetermined. A nationwide, population-based database in Taiwan...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been reported to be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, most studies have been criticized for either a small sample size or the lack of a prospective control. Our study investigated the relationship of SLE and the subsequent development of ischemic stroke using a nationwide, p...
