It has been demonstrated that hypothryoidism could affect the prognosis of patients with cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to better clarify the prognostic role of hypothyroidism in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF).We enrolled 384 consecutive outpatients (65±13 years, 296 males, NYHA 2.3±0.6, left ventricular ejection fraction, LVEF, 32±9%) with CHF (ESC criteria), in stable clinical conditions (at least 30 days) a...

Background: Erectile dysfunction affects nearly half of men with type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and one-third of diabetic men have hypogonadism1. As an add-on to TRT in hypogonadal men with T2DM, Liraglutide may improve erectile function2, and dulaglutide decreased the incidence of moderate and severe ED in T2DM3.Study aims: To assess the GLP-1RA effect in T2DM men complaining of ED treated with both liraglutide and dulaglutide ...

The detection of thyroid nodules has been increasing over time, resulting in an extensive use of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and cytology. Tailored methods are required to improve the management of thyroid nodules, including algorithms and web-based tools. To assess the performance of the Thyroid Nodule App (TNAPP), a web-based, interactive algorithmic tool, in improving the management of thyroid nodules, we carried out a preliminary analysis on a cohort of outpatients. One h...

The dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor co-agonist Tirzepatide vs GLP-1 receptor agonists as add-on to basal insulin in uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus: A rapid review of randomized controlled trials and meta-analysis

Tirzepatide, a once-weekly dual co-agonist of Glucose-Dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide (GIP) and Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptors, has been demonstrated to improve glucose control and reduced body weight in different therapeutic approaches. With this rapid review and meta-analysis, we systematically reviewed the efficacy and safety of injectable incretin-based therapy added to basal insulin compared to basal insulin plus background treatments titrated rigorously t...

Background: Hypothyroidism and low T3 syndrome frequently occur in HF patients.Aim of the study: To evaluate in a large sample of CHF patients the association between thyroid hormone deficiencies and poor outcome.Methods and results: From 2006 to 2015, we screened 712 consecutive CHF outpatients (551 males, 64±14 years, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 33±10%, NYHA class 2.3±0.6, NTproBNP 2153±4696 pg/m...
