Cutaneous manifestations of metabolic syndrome.
CONCLUSION: Emerging scientific evidence points to close associations between MetS and common dermatological diseases necessitating to integrate this perspective into clinical management of these diseases. The dermatologist is a key player in early detection of MetS. PMID: 27815622 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Septic patients with a past history of heart failure received 1L less IV fluids in the first 24 hours with no difference in mortality.
RESUMO Objetivo: Revisar as evid ências científicas que reportem o período de início da nutrição enteral na população pediátrica vítima de queimadura e seus achados. Métodos: Revisão sistemática e metanálise de estudos clínicos randomizados comparando nutrição enteral precoce e nutrição enteral tardia em indiví duos de 1 mês de idade a 18 anos com queimaduras. As bases de dados MEDLINE/PubMed, Embase e Cochrane Library foram acessadas utilizando os termos "burns", "...
The objective of this literature review is to present the theoretical and practical aspects of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support for respiratory and/or cardiac functions in critically ill patients.
Robotic assistance may facilitate completion of minimally invasive hysterectomy, which is the standard of care for the treatment of early-stage endometrial cancer, in patients for whom conventional laparoscopy is challenging. The aim of this systematic review was to assess conversion to laparotomy and perioperative complications after laparoscopic (LH) and robotic hysterectomy (RH) in endometrial cancer patients with obesity.
There are three general techniques for laparoscopic entry, all of which are considered safe and effective. These include the use of a veress needle, an optical trocar, and an open approach. Twenty-five percent of all injuries during laparoscopic surgery occur with initial entry. Therefore, a thoughtful approach to port placement is critical to ensure optimal performance and patient safety with entry. Certain patient factors that may increase the rate of injury or complicate entry include obesity, prior abdominal surgeries, large uterine size, and the small stature and short torso of the pediatric patient.
To evaluate the risk of postoperative complications among diabetic and nondiabetic patients stratified by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c).
To assess the effect of resident participation on hysterectomy-related complications in morbidly obese patients.
To evaluate the accuracy of bladder scanner measurements in assessing post-void residual (PVR) volumes in obese women [body mass index (BMI) ≥30 kg/m2] as compared to non-obese women (BMI
Atypical Hyperplasia carries a 30% risk of developing endometrial cancer over 20 years. Endometrial cancer has increased by 54% since the 1998. Overall hysterectomy rates are falling, and obesity increases. We reviewed 3 snapshot years over 10 years, in terms of hyperplasia numbers, management and surveillance.
To assess the effect of fellowship-trained surgeons (FTS) on hysterectomy-related complications in morbidly obese patients.
