We examined de-identified patient data from 28,508 unique encounters documented in the Asthma IQ database, obtaining patient level factors (demographics, asthma characteristics, co-morbidities), care setting (primary care physician [PCP] versus specialist physician [Allergist or Pulmonologist]), and guideline-defined levels of asthma control/severity. Rates of co-morbidities were identified by asthma severity and control and by care setting. We calculated odds ratios (ORs) for asthma control and severity based on each co-morbidity.ResultsBaseline demographic data indicated that patients seen by specialists versus PCPs, wer...

Asthma affects approximately 300 million people worldwide and approximately 7.5% of adults in the United States. Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the airways, variable airflow obstruction, and bronchial hyperresponsiveness. The diagnosis of asthma is a clinical one with the history and physical examination being significant, but objective measures, such as pulmonary function testing, can be used to aid in the diagnosis. There are multiple associated comorbidities with asthma, including rhinitis, sinusitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, obstructive sleep apnea, and depression. There is often an allergic compone...

Abstract A Difficult-to-Treat Asthma Bronchiale Is Not Necessarily a Severe Asthma Abstract. New biologicals offer the opportunity for treatment of 'difficult-to-treat' asthma. Before prescribing these medications, each 'difficult-to-treat' asthma bronchiale has to be checked for factors aggravating asthma control (e.g. insufficient inhalation technique and adherence, persistent allergen exposure) and asthma-related comorbidities (e.g. rhinosinusitis, gastro-esophageal reflux disease or obstructive sleep apnea) rendering the asthma 'controlled'. Asthma phenotyping s essential for the understanding of different tre...

The aim of the present study was to present a single center's experience with mandibular distraction osteogenesis (MDO) in Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) patients. A retrospective chart review was performed to identify patients with PRS that underwent MDO at our institution from 2003 to 2012. Inclusion criteria were as follows: All pediatric patients with PRS who were not adequately managed with conservative therapy;Those who underwent MDO with internal mandibular distractors;Not previous treatment elsewhere andPatients were followed for ≥3 years. Evaluation included demographic information, postoperative complications, ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are a family of pain-related disorders associated with impaired function in the jaw, temporomandibular joint and muscles of mastication. Our objectives were to evaluate the association between chronic TMD and gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD) and to determine whether mental disorders or undermined sleep mediates this association. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study involving 1522 consecutive adult patients with chronic TMD and 1522 matched controls from 2 hospitals in China. All participants were aged between 18 and 70 years and were recruited...
