Authors: John J, Henry M, Ringoir A, Pinto G, Kesner K, Lazarus J, Sinha S Abstract BACKGROUND: The standard of care for surgically resectable disease renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a nephrectomy. Post-nephrectomy, these patients are at risk for the development of new onset chronic kidney disease or the progression of pre-existing chronic kidney disease. We aimed to report the changes in renal function in patients who had a nephrectomy for RCC. METHODS: This retrospective, descriptive, cross-sectional study identified 137 patients who had a nephrectomy for RCC from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2017. The pre-nep...

Authors: Dedefo MG, Gemechu DB, Fekadu G, Tekle Dibessa T Abstract Background: Hypertension is a prevalent comorbid condition in diabetes, affecting ∼20-60% of patients with diabetes, depending on obesity, ethnicity, and age. Adults with diabetes historically have two or three times higher rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than adults without diabetes. Objective: The aim of this study was to assess blood pressure (BP) control and its predictors among hypertensive diabetic patients on follow-up at the chronic clinic of Nekemte Referral Hospital (NRH) in West Ethiopia. Methods: A cross-sectional study ...

We examined patients who underwent laminectomy for LSS from June 2015 through March 2018. Before spine surgery, we evaluated walking distance, handgrip strength, leg extension power (LEP), 10-m walk test (time and steps), psoas muscle index (PMI), and the area of both total and multifidus muscle using plain computed tomography imaging at the third lumbar level. Handgrip strength was compared with comorbidities including anemia, diabetes, hypertension, marital status, etc.ResultsThere were 183 patients (55 female, 128 male) with a mean age of 70.5 years. Handgrip strength significantly correlated with LEP (P
ConclusionsBullous pemphigoid patients need screening for comorbid health conditions even though treatment options do not seem to be associated with these comorbidities.
