The Effect of Hearing Aid Use on Cognition in Older Adults: Can We Delay Decline or Even Improve Cognitive Function?
Hearing loss is a modifiable risk factor for dementia in older adults. Whether hearing aid use can delay the onset of cognitive decline is unknown. Participants in this study (aged 62-82 years) were assessed before and […]
OBJECTIVE: Depressive and anxiety symptoms are common in older adults, significantly affect quality of life, and are risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease. We sought to identify the determinants of predominant trajectories of depressive and anxiety symptoms […]
Embolic protection in patients undergoing transaortic transcatheter aortic valve replacement: initial experience with the TriGuard HDH embolic deflection device.

OBJECTIVE: We assessed a blood-based signature, which previously demonstrated high accuracy at stratifying individuals with high or low neocortical β-amyloid burden (NAB), to determine whether it could also identify individuals at risk of progression to Alzheimer […]
The beneficial effects of cognitive training with simple calculation and reading aloud in an elderly postsurgical population: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND: This project proposes a pilot study to investigate the positive healing effects of cognitive training with simple arithmetic and reading aloud on elderly postsurgical patients. Elderly patients undergoing surgery have an increased risk of Postoperative […]
