Abstract
2017 highlights benefits of prevention. Better control of cardiovascular risk reduces the incidence of dementia and monthly high-dose vitamin D the incidence of respiratory infections in nursing home. Pre-operative geriatric assessment lowers by 20% the rate of delirium after hip-fracture surgery and complications in vascular surgery. Deleterious effects are also reported. High-dose vitamin D triples the rate of falls in supplemented residents and doesn't improve gait speed in sedentary men. Widely used in cardiovascular prevention, antithrombotic therapy is associated with an astonishing risk of subdural bleeding that further increases with the number of drugs combined together. Finally, the non-pharmacological management of behavioral and psychotic symptoms in advanced dementia, although effective, doesn't reduce the associated burden for proxies.
