Meningioma elderly cardiovascular disease pneumopathies diabetes surgery. The role of the routine pre-operative chest x-ray in the elderly general surgical patients. In questo studio vengono esaminati i risultati immediati e a distanza nel trattamento chirurgico dei meningiomi endocranici in pazienti con età superiore a 65 anni. L'età media dei pazienti era di 69 anni. Le localizzazioni di più frequente riscontro furono la convessità (2. %) e l'ala di sfenoide (2. %).

Management of the elderly with lymphoma needs specific attention. Finally, while geriatric intervention has demonstrated its capacity to improve survival in the general elderly population, no such demonstration has been made in cancer patients including lymphoma. This means supplementary evaluation as regards to younger patients. The objective is to identify specific weaknesses of the patients and thus to foresee potential unexpected toxicities which may endanger patients' outcome. With this information, the hematologist will be able to propose an optimized treatment strategy . with an adapted efficacy/toxicity ratio.

UTIs are the most misdiagnosed infections in the elderly! Unnecessary use of antimicrobials in elderly people can lead to adverse consequences including the development of multi-drug antimicrobial resistance, drug-related adverse effects, harmful drug interactions, and excessive costs.

This book aims to make the physician's approach to the elderly respiratory patient truly comprehensive, by arming them with the information necessary to help improve care procedures, further develop assessment and treatment protocols and give guidance on how to widen attention for the elderly patient beyond the immediate respiratory problem.

Increasing numbers of elderly patients are presenting for surgery due to longer life expectancy. Functional reserve is often reduced in elderly patients, and is thought to be a major factor in the increased morbidity and mortality of the elderly population. The incidence of peri-operative complications is much higher in these patients due to reduced functional reserve and a high incidence of co-morbidity, but these complications can be minimised by careful preoperative assessment, a meticulous anaesthetic technique and good postoperative care. Age-Related Physiological Changes. However, decreased functional reserve may be difficult to detect.
