    ABSTRACT: To compare serious adverse events of fixed-dose dual antihypertensive drug combination (FIXED) to component-based free-combination (FREE).A population-based nationwide cohort from the French Health Insurance System included subjects over 50 years with first time claims (new user) in the second half of 2009 for a calcium-channel blocker or a thiazide-like diuretic in combination with either an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or an angiotensin receptor blocker as FREE or FIXED. We designed a nested matched case-control analysis with 304 cases, hospitalized for hypotension, syncope, or collapse (n = 224), renal failure (n = 19), hyponatremia, hyper- or hypokalemia (n = 61) and 1394 controls matched for gender, age, date of inclusion in the cohort, and administrative county. Subjects with a medical history of cardiovascular disease, chronic renal failure, or cancer were excluded.The mean age ± SD was 73 ± 10 years and 70% were women. Based on the last delivery preceding the index date, 1414 patients (83%) were exposed to FIXED. Homogeneity of FIXED effect compared to FREE across components of the main composite outcome was rejected (P = 0.0099). FIXED formulation significantly increased the odd of the most frequent component (ie, hypotension, syncope, or collapse): OR = 1.88 (95% CI: 1.15-3.05) compared to FREE after adjusting for confounding factors including dose.Serious adverse event occurring in the early phase of treatment deserves attention of physicians because it could alter the benefit/risk ratio of antihypertensive drug combination.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Antiplatelet therapies, including prasugrel, are a cornerstone in the treatment of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), but are associated with a bleeding risk. This risk has been evaluated in randomized trials, but few data on real-world patients are available. Aim: To evaluate prasugrel safety in real-world patients with STEMI. Methods: Consecutive patients with STEMI were recruited over 1 year. Follow-up was done at 3 months and 1 year to evaluate prasugrel safety from hospital discharge to the STEMI anniversary date. The primary outcome was occurrence of any major bleeding according to the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) 3 or 5 definitions, or minor bleeding according to the BARC 2 definition. Results: Overall, 1083 patients were recruited. Compared to patients treated with aspirin+clopidogrel, patients treated with aspirin+prasugrel had fewer BARC 3 or 5 bleedings (two [0.4%] patients vs. nine [1.8%] patients; P=0.04), but more BARC 2 bleedings (45 [9.3%] patients vs. 20 [4.0%] patients; P<0.001). The baseline characteristics of prasugrel- and clopidogrel-treated patients differed because the former were carefully selected (younger, higher body mass index, less frequent history of stroke). In the overall population, rates of in-hospital and out-of-hospital major bleeding were 2.6% (n=28) and 1.3% (n=13), respectively. Conclusion: The rate of major bleeding, particularly out-of-hospital bleeding, in patients treated with prasugrel is low within 1 year after a STEMI. Accurate selection of patient candidates for prasugrel is likely to have reduced the risk of bleeding.

    ABSTRACT: Background: The relationship between electrical and mechanical indices of cardiac dyssynchronization in systolic heart failure (HF) remains poorly understood. Objectives: We examined retrospectively this relationship by using the daily practice tools in cardiology in recipients of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) systems. Methods: We studied 119 consecutive patients in sinus rhythm and QRS≥120ms (mean: 160±17ms) undergoing CRT device implantation. P wave duration, PR, ePR (end of P wave to QRS onset), QT, RR-QT, JT and QRS axis and morphology were putative predictors of atrioventricular (diastolic filling time [DFT]/RR), interventricular mechanical dyssynchrony (IVMD) and left intraventricular mechanical dyssynchrony (left ventricular pre-ejection interval [PEI] and other measures) assessed by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). Correlations between TTE and electrocardiographic measurements were examined by linear regression. Results: Statistically significant but relatively weak correlations were found between heart rate (r=-0.5), JT (r=0.3), QT (r=0.3), RR-QT intervals (r=0.5) and DFT/RR, though not with PR and QRS intervals. Weak correlations were found between: (a) QRS (r=0.3) and QT interval (r=0.3) and (b) IVMD>40ms; and between (a) ePR (r=-0.2), QRS (r=0.4), QT interval (r=0.3) and (b) LVPEI, though not with other indices of intraventricular dyssynchrony. Conclusions: The correlations between electrical and the evaluated mechanical indices of cardiac dyssynchrony were generally weak in heart failure candidates for CRT. These data may help to explain the discordance between electrocardiographic and echocardiographic criteria of ventricular dyssynchrony in predicting the effect of CRT.

    ABSTRACT: Background In France, like in most developed countries, peritoneal dialysis (PD) is less used than haemodialysis (HD). This is not based on medical evidence supporting HD superiority. As the practitioner's opinion is important to patients and may influence their treatment choice, we conducted a survey among French nephrologists to determine which renal replacement therapy (RRT) they would choose if they had end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Methods We e-mailed a self-administered questionnaire to all members of the French-speaking Nephrology Society between 19 October 2008 and 12 January 2009. We then selected from the French Renal Epidemiology and Information Network (REIN) registry a reference population of 20- to 64-year-old patients with ESRD who began RRT [HD, PD or pre-emptive transplantation, (PT)] in 2008. Results The survey response rate was 17.8%. Results showed that 59.6% of respondents chose early inscription on the transplantation waiting list in view of PT, 20.2% selected HD and 20.2% selected PD. When dialysis was the only choice, 50.2% chose HD and 49.8% chose PD. Younger nephrologists (≤44 years old) selected PD more frequently than older nephrologists (≥45 years old) (58.9 versus 40.5%; P < 0.01). Similarly, PD was chosen more often by nephrologists from regions with ‘more PD’ than from regions with ‘less PD’ (79.0 versus 48.8%; P < 0.05). The nephrologists' choices were different from the RTT distribution among the reference population: 81.7% HD, 10.1% PD and 8.2% PT. Conclusion Our survey on the theoretical choice of RTT suggests that the low PD rate in France cannot be explained by a negative opinion of PD among French nephrologists.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: To describe the population admitted in an emergency department of a teaching hospital for severe bleeding associated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC). Method: During a three-year period (2012-2014) patients older than 16years were prospectively identified by haemorrhagic symptoms from computerised requests. At least one of the following criteria defined major haemorrhage: haemorrhagic shock, unstable haemodynamic, need for transfusion or haemostatic procedure, or a life threatening location. Results: Fifty four patients, 23 receiving dabigatran, 30 rivaroxaban and one apixaban were included, 2 in 2012, 35 in 2013 and 17 in 2014. Median age was 84years (range 63-99) with a sex ratio of 1.16. Haemorrhagic complications were gastrointestinal (n=27), intracranial (n=12) or miscellaneous (n=15). Indication of DOAC was stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation in 49 cases and deep vein thrombosis in 5 cases. Hospitalization was required for 45 patients (83%) with a mean length of stay of 8.5days. Sixteen patients needed intensive care. Reversal therapy was prescribed in 11 patients. At 1month, overall mortality was 24%, reaching 41.7% for intracranial haemorrhage. Among surviving patients, DOAC was stopped in 10 cases, continued in 17 patients and switched for other antithrombotic in 17 patients. Conclusion: Our study contributes to the post marketing surveillance of major haemorrhagic complications associated with DOAC. It takes part to the knowledge about the course of this severe event in emergencies. Careful awareness in risk benefit assessment, especially in elderly, is needed.

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: There is still controversy on brand-to-generic (B-G) antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) substitution. Methods: To assess association between B-G AED substitution and seizure-related hospitalization, we designed a case crossover using the French National Health Insurance Database. We identified a cohort of adult patients who filled a prescription in 2009-2011 for AEDs with at least one brand name and one generic form. The outcome date was defined as the date of hospitalization, coded G40.x or G41.x, with a G40/G41 hospitalization-free period of at least 1 year. Patients with a medical history of cancer and women who gave birth in 2009-2011 were excluded. We required individuals to have regular dispensations of AEDs within the year preceding the outcome date. Free patients were defined as patients who had only brand name dispensations before the control period. Results: Eight thousand three hundred seventy nine patients (mean age ± standard deviation, 52.7 ± 18.8 years; sex ratio male/female, 1.27) were analyzed. Discordant pairs were 491 with B-G substitution in the control period only and 478 with B-G substitution in the case period only; odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 0.97 (0.86-1.10). No statistically significant interaction was detected among the four prespecified subgroup analyses (gender, age strata, free or non-free, and strict AED monotherapy or not). Controlling for non-seizure-related hospitalizations made no material difference. Sensitivity analyses yielded similar results. Conclusions: Brand-to-generic AED substitution was not associated with an elevated risk of seizure-related hospitalization. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    ABSTRACT: Background: KaRen is a multicentre study designed to characterize and follow patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). In a subgroup of patients with clinical signs of congestion but left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >45%, we sought to describe and analyse the potential prognostic value of echocardiographic parameters recorded not only at rest but also during a submaximal exercise stress echocardiography. Exercise-induced changes in echo parameters might improve our ability to characterize HFpEF patients. Method and results: Patients were prospectively recruited in a single tertiary centre following an acute HF episode with NT-pro-BNP >300 pg/mL (BNP > 100 pg/mL) and LVEF > 45% and reassessed by exercise echo-Doppler after 4-8 weeks of dedicated treatment. Image acquisitions were standardized, and analysis made at end of follow-up blinded to patients' clinical status and outcome. In total, 60 patients having standardized echocardiographic acquisitions were included in the analysis. Twenty-six patients (43%) died or were hospitalized for HF (primary outcome). The mean ± SD workload was 45 ± 14 watts (W). Mean ± SD resting LVEF and LV global longitudinal strain was 57.6 ± 9.5% and -14.5 ± 4.2%, respectively. Mean ± SD resting E/e' was 11.3 ± 4.7 and 13.1 ± 5.3 in those patients who did not and those who did experience the primary outcome, respectively (P = 0.03). Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) peak velocity during exercise were 3.3 ± 0.5 and 3.7 ± 0.5 m/s (P = 0.01). Exercise TR was independently associated with HF-hospitalization or death after adjustment on baseline clinical and biological characteristics. Conclusion: Exercise echocardiography may contribute to identify HFpEF patients and especially high-risk ones. Our study suggested a prognostic value of TR recorded during an exercise. That was demonstrated independently of the value of resting E/e'.

    ABSTRACT: Objectives To identify electrocardiographic and echocardiographic predictors of mortality and hospitalizations for heart failure (HF) in the KaRen study.Background KaRen is a prospective, observational study of the long-term outcomes of patients presenting with heart failure and a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).Method We identified 538 patients who presented with acute cardiac decompensation, a >100 pg/mL serum b-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) or >300 pg/mL N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentration and a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >45%. After 4–8 weeks of standard treatment, 413 patients (mean age = 76 ± 9 years, 55.9% women) returned for analyses of their clinical status, laboratory screen, and detailed electrocardiographic and Doppler echocardiographic recordings. They were followed for a mean of 28 months thereafter. The primary study endpoint was time to death from all causes or first hospitalization for heart failure.ResultsMean LVEF was 62.4 ± 6.9% and median NT-proBNP 1410 pmol/L. PR interval >200 ms was present in 11.2% of patients and 14.9% had a >120 ms QRS duration, with left bundle branch block in only 6.3%. Over a mean follow-up of 28 months, 177 patients (42.9%) reached a primary study endpoint, including 61 deaths and 116 hospitalizations for heart failure. After adjustment for age, gender, New York Heart Association class, atrial fibrillation history, creatinine, sodium, BNP, ejection fraction, and right ventricular fractional shortening, only E/e′ remained as a predictor, with a hazard ratio = 1.49 and P = 0.0012.Conclusion The incidence of hospitalizations for HF and deaths in KaRen was high and E/e′ predicted adverse clinical outcomes. These observations should help in the risk stratification and therapy of HFpEF.

    ABSTRACT: To assess the impact of HA on robotic PN (RPN) outcomes. We retrospectively analyzed data from patients who underwent RPN in eight centers between 2009 and 2013. Hemorrhagic complications were defined as the occurrence of a pseudoaneurysm, arteriovenous fistula or hematoma requiring transfusion. Patients were first divided into two groups: group A (use of at least one HA) and group B (no HA used), and then into five groups to assess the impact of each HA: group 1 (no HA), group 2 (Floseal(®) only), group 3 (Surgicel(®) only), group 4 (Tachosil(®) only) and group 5 (Surgicel(®) + Floseal(®)). The impact of HA was evaluated by univariate and multivariate analysis. Out of 515 RPN, 315 (61 %) were done using at least one HA (group A) and 200 (39 %) were done without any HA (group B). Patients in both groups had similar hemorrhagic complication rates (13 % vs. 15 %, p = 0.42) and postoperative complication rates (19 % vs. 23 %, p = 0.32). In multivariate analysis, the absence of HA was not a risk factor for hemorrhagic complications (OR 0.77, p = 0.54). When each type of HA was considered individually, none was associated with the occurrence of hemorrhagic complication either in univariate or in multivariate analysis. In this multicenter study, the use of HA was not associated with a lower risk of hemorrhagic or global complications.

    ABSTRACT: Background Mutations of BRAF, NRAS and c-KIT oncogenes are preferentially described in certain histological subtypes of melanoma and linked to specific histopathological features. BRAF-, MEK- and KIT-inhibitors led to improvement in overall survival of patients harbouring mutated metastatic melanoma.Objectives To assess the prevalence and types of BRAF, NRAS, c-KIT and MITF mutations in cutaneous and mucous melanoma and to correlate mutation status with clinicopathological features and outcome.Methods Clinicopathological features and mutation status of 108 samples and of 98 consecutive patients were, respectively, assessed in one retrospective and one prospective study. Clinicopathological features were correlated with mutation status and the predictive value of these mutations was studied.ResultsThis work identified significant correlations between BRAF mutations and melanoma occurring on non-chronic sun-damaged skin and superficial spreading melanoma (P < 0.05) on one hand, and between NRAS mutations and nodular melanoma (P < 0.05) on the other hand. Younger age (P < 0.05), microscopic (P < 0.05) and macroscopic (P < 0.05) lymphatic involvement at diagnosis of primary melanoma were significantly linked to BRAF mutations. A mutated status was a positive predictive factor of a response to BRAF inhibitors (OR = 3.44). Mutated melanoma showed a significantly (P = 0.038) higher objective response rate to cytotoxic chemotherapy (26.3%) than wild-type tumours (6.7%).Conclusion Clinical and pathological characteristics of the primary melanoma differed between wild-type and BRAF- or NRAS-mutated tumours. Patients with BRAF-mutated tumours were younger at diagnosis of primary melanoma. Patients carrying mutations showed better responses better to specific kinase inhibitors and interestingly also to systemic cytotoxic chemotherapy.

    ABSTRACT: Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agents (ESA) are largely prescribed before dialysis stage to chronic kidney disease patients. In accordance to current international guidelines, lots have been made by pharmacological companies in order to improve self management of ESAs: subcutaneaous administration, pencil devices, mutidose cartridges, low injection volume, very fine needles, once a month injections but none is currently known on the percentage of patients who actually do self administration of ESAs.

    ABSTRACT: Aim. To stimulate spontaneous reporting of adverse drug reactions and to enable information sharing on drug's safety between Rennes Pharmacovigilance Regional Center and hospitals of its territory. Methods. After having outlined objectives of the network to 11 major public institutions, the network was launched. It is coordinated by a dedicated pharmacist thanks to animation of monthly videoconference and diffusion of a quarterly newsletter. It relies on a local correspondent in each hospital who disseminates information to healthcare professionals and becomes their local contact for pharmacovigilance. Results. The quality and usefulness of information sharing are emphasized by every one. We observed an increase in notifications and information requests multiplied by 3.4 and 2.4 % respectively between 2008 and 2013. Conclusions. The existence of a dedicated coordinator and implication of the correspondents are key elements enabling the network to be efficient. The increase of spontaneous notifications is noteworthy. The next step is to officially enlarge the network to private hospitals. © 2014 Société Française de Pharmacologie et de Thérapeutique.

    ABSTRACT: Aims: Few studies have looked at blood pressure (BP) evolution after nephrectomy, except for in living kidney donors with no clinical relevant modifications. STAFF is a pilot, open-label, observational study to evaluate the feasibility of following BP by home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) after nephrectomy for cancer. Major findings: 56 patients (66.1% previously treated for hypertension) were included between November 1, 2011, and December 31, 2012; 95.8% of the patients realized five of six primary end-points in HBPM, but the last monitoring session at 6 months was often lacking (60%) probably because of a lack of understanding. When BP was controlled before surgery, 36% of the patients underwent new hypertension or hypertension dysregulation, without any correlating factor found; 33% of the patients presented the presence of proteinuria or an increase during the follow-up. Previous hypertension or high body mass index were risk factors for proteinuria increase (p = 0.036 and 0.032) but not treatment by an renin-angiotensin system blocker. There was no statistical link between HTA control and proteinuria. Conclusion: Our study shows that most patients undergoing nephrectomy for cancer are able to follow HBPM. It should be encouraged for detecting high BP or proteinuria, especially if antiangiogenic therapies are envisaged because of the supplementary risk of hypertension and proteinuria induced by these treatments.
