Global Geriatric Assessment and In-Hospital Bleeding Risk in Elderly Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes: Insights from the LONGEVO-SCA Registry Bleeding risk scores have shown a limited predictive ability in elderly patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). No study explored the role of a comprehensive geriatric assessment to predict in-hospital bleeding in this clinical setting.The prospective multicentre LONGEVO-SCA registry included 532 unselected patients with non-ST segment (...) elevation ACS (NSTEACS) aged 80 years or older. Comorbidity (Charlson index), frailty (FRAIL scale), disability (Barthel index and Lawton-Brody index), cognitive status (Pfeiffer test) and nutritional risk (mini nutritional assessment-short form test) were assessed during hospitalization. CRUSADE score was prospectively calculated for each patient. In-hospital major bleeding was defined by the CRUSADE classification. The association between geriatric syndromes and in-hospital major bleeding was assessed

Comprehensive geriatric assessment for older adults admitted to hospital. Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is a multi-dimensional, multi-disciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic process conducted to determine the medical, mental, and functional problems of older people with frailty so that a co-ordinated and integrated plan for treatment and follow-up can be developed. This is an update of a previously published Cochrane review.We sought to critically appraise and summarise current (...) evidence on the effectiveness and resource use of CGA for older adults admitted to hospital, and to use these data to estimate its cost-effectiveness.We searched CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, three other databases, and two trials registers on 5 October 2016; we also checked reference lists and contacted study authors.We included randomised trials that compared inpatient CGA (delivered on geriatric wards or by mobile teams) versus usual care on a general medical ward or on a ward for older people, usually

Integration of Geriatric Assessment in the Care of Patients with Gastrointestinal Malignancies The majority of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies are older. Recently, it has become evident that elements from a geriatric assessment (GA) are powerful predictors of outcomes such as postoperative morbidity and mortality, length of stay, type of treatment received, and survival across several GI tumor types in older adults. A GA is a systematic evaluation of functional status (...) findings.Increasing data shows that elements from a GA and frailty are consistently associated with negative short- and long-term treatment outcomes in older patients with GI malignancies. Future studies should investigate the impact of geriatric interventions on outcomes.
