ORIGINAL ARTICLE 2017 November 10
Prognostic significance of non-chest pain symptoms in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction
1. The proportion of non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients who presented with non-chest pain complaints was 23%.
2. After propensity score matching, contact-to-device time, symptoms-to-balloon time, and doorto-balloon time were significantly longer in patients with atypical symptoms.
3. Length of stay in the coronary care unit was longer for patients who presented with atypical symptoms.
4. Atypical symptoms independently predicted 12-month mortality (hazard ratio, 2.820; 95% confidence interval, 1.058 to 7.515; p = 0.038).

Current treatment status and medical costs for hemodialysis vascular access based on analysis of the Korean Health Insurance Database
1. The rapid growth in hemodialysis population has dramatically increased the number and medical expenses of access-related procedures.
2. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was the main driver of the increase in access-related costs, becoming a financial challenge in the medical expenditures of chronic kidney disease management.
3. PTA should be performed when an anatomical abnormality is associated with functional abnormalities; therefore, active involvement of the dialysis staffs in the monitoring of clinical and physiological aspects of vascular access is important.

Should asymptomatic young men with iron deficiency anemia necessarily undergo endoscopy?
1. Young men with iron deficiency anemia (IDA) had a significantly higher proportion of colorectal cancer, villous adenoma, and inf lammatory bowel disease (IBD) than did those without IDA.
2. The prevalence of significant lower gastrointestinal (GI) lesions including advanced colorectal neoplasia and IBD was higher in subjects with IDA than in those without IDA.
3. A positive association between IDA and upper GI lesions was observed only in the case of gastric ulcer.
4. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and particularly colonoscopy should be recommended even in asymptomatic young men with IDA.
