Highlights in Family Medicine

Tobacco and alcohol use significantly increase risk for ESCC

Based on a meta-analysis (n=5 studies) reported in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, the combined use of tobacco and alcohol increased the risk for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OR=3.28) compared with non-users; users of tobacco or alcohol alone had a 20%-30% increased risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma compared to non-users.

CT screening for lung cancer in patients 55-80 years of age beneficial

As reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine, annual CT screening of ever-smokers between 55 and 80 years of age for lung cancer is beneficial. Such screening would result in 45-54% of diagnoses in stage I or II, a 14% reduction in lung cancer mortality, and 497 deaths averted.

Predictors of poor coronary collateral circulation in stable CAD

As reported in Angiology, the fasting blood glucose and serum uric acid levels and the white blood cell count were higher in patients with stable CAD (n=480) and associated with poor coronary collateral circulation.
