Design and methods: We followed, up to a maximum of 10 years, 1626 consecutive patients who had discontinued anticoagulation after a first episode of clinically symptomatic proximal DVT and/or PE. All patients with clinically suspected recurrent VTE underwent objective tests to confirm or rule out the clinical suspicion.

Results: After a median follow-up of 50 months, 373 patients (22.9%) had had recurrent episodes of VTE. The cumulative incidence of recurrent VTE was 11.0% (95% CI, 9.5-12.5) after 1 year, 19.6% (17.5-21.7) after 3 years, 29.1% (26.3-31.9) after 5 years, and 39.9% (35.4-44.4) after 10 years. The adjusted hazard ratio for recurrent VTE was 2.30 (95% CI, 1.82-2.90) in patients whose first VTE was unprovoked, 2.02 (1.52-2.69) in those with thrombophilia, 1.44 (1.03-2.03) in those presenting with primary DVT, 1.39 (1.08-1.80) for patients who received a shorter (up to 6 months) duration of anticoagulation, and 1.14 (1.06-1.12) for every 10-year increase of age. When the analysis was confined to patients with unprovoked VTE the results did not change.

An extended period of heat was categorised as a heatwave when the maximum temperature reached 35C or above for three consecutive days or more with 35C marking the 95th percentile for maximum daily temperature for the period 1993-2009. Temperatures were obtained from the SA Bureau of Meteorology measured at a city location representative of the Adelaide metropolitan area . The 2008 heatwave lasted 15 days (3 March-16 March 2008); the 2009 heatwave was defined as a 13 day episode, but included one day where the maximum temperature was just below 35C (26 January-7 February 2009).
Small (non-significant) increases in total hospital admissions were observed in all three heatwave categories for the adult age groups (Table 3). Admissions for ischaemic heart disease increased by 33% (IRR; 1.33; 95%CI, 0.99-1.80) in the 15-64 year age group during the 2009 heatwave only. While increases in mental health related admissions during previous averaged heatwaves were clearly identified across the age groups, this was not as evident during the 2008 and 2009 heatwave. Previous averaged heatwaves have shown significant increases in total renal admissions (IRR1.098; 95% CI, 1.01-1.20). This trend was repeated during the two extreme events where renal admissions were pronounced in the 5-14 and 75+ year age groups.
Surprisingly, with the exception of neurological-related ambulance call-outs in the 65-74 year age group, mental health conditions were not significantly affected during the two extreme events, contrary to what was expected based on our previous research and highlighted in the results from previous averaged heatwaves . However, the lack of effects on mental health-related hospital admissions and emergency department presentations may be explained by the relatively small number of mental health-related cases during single heatwave episodes or the effect of preventive actions recently put in place to support susceptible people in Adelaide. These initiatives were introduced during the 2009 heatwave as a result of previous local investigations, and included daily telephone follow up of patients at the severe end of the mental health disease spectrum.
The results of this study indicate increased health risks during the 2008 and 2009 heatwaves in Adelaide compared to previous averaged heatwaves. Compared to other national and international extreme heat episodes, Adelaide's health outcomes were relatively contained, but a number of important health lessons can be learned for the future. Renal and heat-related morbidity can escalate during extreme heat events and should be targeted for prevention, because of the potentially serious consequences. Unlike the findings from previous heatwave investigations, the 2009 heatwave was associated with excess deaths which are likely to be due to unprecedented intensity over consecutive days. This may indicate that the capacity to cope with heat has been exceeded during this episode. Furthermore, medical social and environmental circumstances underlying the sudden increase in ischaemic heart disease and mortality in the 15-64 year age group during the 2009 heatwave must be explored. Further studies aiming to ascertain specific risk factors that may have contributed to morbidity and mortality during recent extreme heat events in Adelaide are currently underway. Considering the likelihood of increasing incidence and severity of heat events it is crucial to interrogate local data to provide the best evidence for developing and implementing effective heat health prevention in the future.
A systematic literature review identified the effect of initiation of allopurinol or azapropazone during an acute gout flare . However, it did not include any RCT on febuxostat. Hence, the present study aimed to systematically review the literature to identify whether initiation of ULT during an acute gout flare prolongs the current episode.

HDAS episodes have a highly variable course. Recurrent and Persistent HDAS, and longer duration of HDAS episodes, increased the risk of damage accrual. In addition to a major signifier of severity in SLE, its resolution to LLDAS can determine the subsequent outcome in SLE patients.
The natural history of SLE is relapsing and remitting, such that periods of higher disease activity are usually followed by lower disease activity, either spontaneously or in response to treatment escalation. However, the disease course following an occurrence of HDAS, and the resolution of such episodes, has not been described. In this study, we examine clinical associations of different HDAS patterns and their associated outcomes.
The attainment of LLDAS is an important treatment goal for people affected with SLE, as it has been associated with protection from flares and damage accrual . In this study, we analysed the characteristics of HDAS episodes which were defined by the first attainment of LLDAS after patients experienced HDAS. Our study sheds light on the heterogeneity of the duration of these HDAS episodes. Longer duration of HDAS episodes and multiple recurrent HDAS episodes were strong predictors for damage accrual. Many factors can determine the duration of an HDAS episode, but one important consideration was the baseline disease activity. Higher SLEDAI-2K at the onset of HDAS was associated with longer HDAS episodes, which in turn was associated with an increased likelihood of damage accrual.
Monitoring the duration of an HDAS episode may be clinically relevant for planning treatment, as the relationship between the duration of HDAS episodes and damage appears to uphold whether patients experienced single or multiple HDAS episodes, implying that strategies aimed at attaining LLDAS more quickly after HDAS could limit the damage. Damage accrual was also significantly associated with patients who experienced multiple HDAS episodes (4 or greater), perhaps suggesting that this was a very select group with poor prognosis.
