81. Adherence with statin therapy in elderly patients with and without acute coronary syndromes.

Adherence with statin therapy in elderly patients with and without acute coronary syndromes. CONTEXT: Landmark clinical trials have demonstrated the survival benefits of statins, with benefits usually starting after 1 to 2 years of treatment. Research prior to these trials of older lipid-lowering agents demonstrated low levels of 1-year adherence. OBJECTIVE: To compare 2-year adherence following statin initiation in 3 cohorts of patients: those with recent acute coronary syndrome (ACS), those (...) with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD), and those without coronary disease (primary prevention). DESIGN AND SETTING: Cohort study using linked population-based administrative data from Ontario. PATIENTS: All patients aged 66 years or older who received at least 1 statin prescription between January 1994 and December 1998 and who did not have a statin prescription in the prior year were followed up for 2 years from their first statin prescription. There were 22,379 patients in the ACS, 36,106

Our objective was to describe a pharmacist's comprehensive geriatric (...) assessment (pCGA) at admission of elderly patients and to assess its relevance in terms of medication compliance and pharmacist interventions (PIs). We conducted a prospective interventional study over 29 months in a 34-bed medical/rehabilitation geriatric ward in a French geriatric hospital. At admission, patients received pharmaceutical care through a consistent three-step process: (1) pharmacists met with the patient to undertake cognitive screening and assess their medication adherence (using

According to chest computed tomography (...) findings, a diagnosis of acute respiratory failure due to right-sided Bochdalek hernia was made. Emergency laparotomy revealed that a bowel loop from the terminal ileum to the transverse colon had herniated into the right thoracic cavity through the foramen of Bochdalek. The herniated organs were reduced to the abdominal cavity and the foramen was repaired by direct suturing. The patient had good recovery and was discharged 78 days later.
