STEMI

This is a descriptive and illustrative guide to ST-elevated myocardial infarctions. The image illustrates which areas of the heart are viewed by which leads from a 12 lead ECG, along with which arteries are blocked, causing which types of myocardial infarction.

Diabetes complication rates fall markedly in the US, says CDC study

Rates of five serious complications related to diabetes—myocardial infarction, stroke, end stage kidney failure, lower limb amputation, and death from hyperglycemia — have all decreased among adults with diabetes in the US over the past two decades, according to a new study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1

What is the most effective operation for adults with severe and complex obesity?

Accessing, undergoing, and achieving a successful outcome from surgery for “severe and complex obesity” is difficult and requires determination and effort. Here, we consider “severe and complex obesity” to mean that an individual’s health is compromised by his or her weight to the extent that surgery can be considered to be an appropriate option.1 Surgery may be offered to adults with a body mass index (BMI) of ≥40, or a BMI of ≥35 with an obesity related disease, and it can be very successful. An average 50% of excess weight may be lost in the first few years after surgery, and if this is sustained it is associated with long term reduction in overall mortality and decreased incidences of diabetes, myocardial infarction, stroke and cancer.1 2 This treatment, however, requires careful consideration and serious commitment, with the need to demonstrate full engagement in a structured weight loss programme, to have tried all appropriate non-invasive measures of weight loss, and persevered for referral to a specialist surgical team.1 Once surgery is approved it is necessary to choose which operation to undergo.

Weight loss in an adolescent girl

A 15 year old girl who had been previously fit and well presented to the child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) team with weight loss, irregular menstrual periods, excessive exercise, restriction of energy intake during the day, and binging during the evening, followed by vomiting. Her symptoms had been present for a year, since her father had experienced a myocardial infarction. Clinically her symptoms were in keeping with anorexia nervosa, as shown by her completed eating disorder questionnaire.1 Her body mass index (BMI) was 16 and her weight for height was 85% of the median (50th centile) for age and sex. She had a distorted body image, believing her stomach and ankles were too fat, and she had an extreme fear of gaining weight.

Optimism and consent to treatment

We know that patients and doctors tend to overestimate the benefits of treatment and underestimate the harms. We also know that people’s natural optimism is often boosted by the systematic optimism bias of the medical literature (Br J Psych 2010;197:441-7, doi:10.1192/bjp.bp.110.078006; PLoS One 2014;9(5):e98246, doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0098246). But in the case of percutaneous coronary intervention there is no such excuse. Experts and guidelines are clear: it improves symptoms but not survival. Nor does it reduce the risk of myocardial infarction. It should be offered to patients with stable coronary artery disease only if medical treatment is failing to manage their angina.
