Diagnostic accuracy of 22/25-gauge core needle in endoscopic ultrasound-guided sampling: systematic review and meta-analysis
1. Core and standard needles were comparable in terms of diagnostic accuracy. 2. The number of needle passes for diagnosis was significantly lower with the core needle. 3. There was no significant difference in the procurement of optimal histologic cores between core and standard needles.

Two-year clinical outcomes in stable angina and acute coronary syndrome after percutaneous coronary intervention of left main coronary artery disease
1. In patients with unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), in-hospital mortality rate was higher in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) than in stable angina pectoris (SAP). 2. Two-year clinical outcome was similar between SAP and ACS. Therefore, PCI of ULMCA can be performed in patients with ACS effectively and safely. 3. Predictive factors of 2-year mortality were hypertension, Killip class ≥ 3 and use of intra-aortic balloon pump.

Blood count parameters can predict the severity of coronary artery disease
1. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was found to be an independent predictor of severe atherosclerosis. 2. Mean platelet volume (MPV) was found to be an independent predictor of severe atherosclerosis. 3. Cut-off value of NLR above 2.54 and a value of MPV above 10.4 can predict the presence of atherosclerosis before coronary angiography. 4. Both NLR and MPV may be used in daily practice for the prediction and identification of cardiac risks without an intervention.

Glomerular filtration rate affects interpretation of pulmonary function test in a Korean general population: results from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2010 to 2012
1. In both males and females with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) values < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 , the linear trends toward the presence of obstructive and restrictive patterns were significant. 2. The percent predicted forced vital capacity (FVC) decreased with a decline in the estimated GFR, but only in males. 3. A decline in the estimated GFR was independently associated with falls in the percent predicted FVC and the forced expiratory volume in 1 second/FVC ratio in both males and females.

Elevated lipoprotein(a) levels predict cardiovascular disease in type 2 diabetes mellitus: a 10-year prospective cohort study
1. Lipoprotein(a) (Lp[a]) level was an independent predictive risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in type 2 diabetes. 2. Quartile or quintile range of Lp(a) levels may be useful as a prognostic risk factor for CVD. 3. As there is no proper treatment for lowering Lp(a) level, other cardiovascular risk factors should be treated more intensively in type 2 diabetic patients with high Lp(a) levels.

Prevalence of chronic kidney disease defined by using CKD-EPI equation and albumin-to-creatinine ratio in the Korean adult population
1. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) was estimated to be 7.9% in the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey samples of 2011 and 2012 in Korean adults aged ≥ 19. 2. Early identification of CKD paired with appropriate management and earlier referral to specialty kidney services results in economic and clinical benefits. 3. The majority of CKD patients have albuminuria prior to a decrease in glomerular filtration rate. 4. Regular laboratory tests for albuminuria in the high-risk group, especially for hypertensive or diabetes mellitus patients, should contribute to early detection of CKD.
