Fecal transplant is used to treat gut infections and is now being studied as a treatment for obesity, urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome and more.
A 52-year-old man with diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, morbid obesity (body mass index: 37), and chronic kidney disease started peritoneal dialysis using a surgically inserted catheter (midline incision). Catheter dysfunction necessitated surgical repositioning. During the operation, a cavity localized in the subcutaneous fat of the abdominal wall was discovered, with connection to the peritoneum space and the entire catheter within the cavity. The malfunctioning catheter was replaced through the same insertion site without an attempt to fix the cavity.
IMPORTANCE: Health departments can be grouped together based on sociodemographic characteristics of the population served. Comparisons within these groups can then help with monitoring and improving the health of their populations. OBJECTIVE: To co...
The objective of the study is to compare patient-reported outcomes between obese and non-obese patients with C2 and C3 disease after radiofrequency ablation (RFA).
Obesity is a global epidemic with rising prevalence, and is a potential risk factor portending poor surgical outcomes. Using body mass index (BMI) as an objective marker, this study aims to compare outcomes of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair between obese and non-obese adult patients.

CONCLUSION: This paper describes the development and implementation of a tool to evaluate partnership functioning, which was found to have high internal consistency and reliability. SO WHAT?: With increasing emphasis on working in partnership, using partnership assessment tools can provide useful evidence to assess whether partnerships are a successful strategy in complex programs evaluation.

Conclusions: Neither obesity nor the presence of lymph node metastases was associated with mapping failure. However, there remains a need for further studies to understand all the mechanisms linked to the unsuccessful method results and to reduce the use of systematic lymphadenectomy in the case of mapping failure.Gynecol Obstet Invest

Conclusion(s)The presence of lipid receptors/transporters and HSL in human spermatozoa suggests their role in the process of maturation/capacitation. The changes in the expression of lipid receptors/transporters and the lack of the 130-kDa HSL isoform in obese patients prevent the hydrolysis of cholesterol esters internalized by these receptors, and favor their accumulation in the cytoplasm of the spermatozoa that could contribute to lipotoxicity and infertility.
