Impact of bariatric surgery in patients with HIV infection: a nationwide inpatient sample analysis, 2004–2014

Objective: Despite rising rates of obesity among patients with HIV, the potential role for weight loss surgery in this population remains less clear. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the role of bariatric surgery on relevant clinical outcomes among hospitalized obese patients with HIV. Design: Retrospective analysis using the United States Nationwide Inpatient Sample database from 2004 to 2014. Using Poisson regression, adjusted incidence risk ratios (IRR) were derived for clinical outcomes in patients with prior-bariatric surgery compared with those without bariatric surgery. Patients: Patients with discharge co-diagnoses of morbid obesity and HIV. Intervention: Bariatric surgery. Main outcome measures: Primary outcome was in-hospital mortality. Secondary outcomes included renal failure, urinary tract infection, malnutrition, sepsis, pneumonia, respiratory failure, thromboembolic events, gastrointestinal strictures, micronutrient deficiency, length of stay, and hospitalization costs. Results: Among 7803 patients with discharge diagnoses of HIV and morbid obesity, 346 patients (4.4%) had bariatric surgery. The proportion of bariatric surgery in obese patients with HIV initially declined by −0.10% per year from 2004 to 2009 (Ptrend

Kidneys and heart involvement represent main comorbidities in diabetic patients often leading to organ's failure. The treatments available until a few years ago are often associated with hypoglycemia, weight gain, gastro-intestinal disorders and other side effects together with serious averse effects on renal...

In a cross-sectional care model, primary care physicians guide all therapeutic management related to obesity. Together with them, specialists in endocrinology and nutrition and other heal...

MahataAbstractObesity is characterized by a state of chronic, unresolved inflammation in insulin-targeted tissues. Obesity-induced inflammation causes accumulation of proinflammatory macrophages in adipose tissue and liver. Proinflammatory cytokines released from tissue macrophages inhibits insulin sensitivity. Obesity also leads to inflammation-induced endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress a...

This article summarizes research of our laboratory aimed at identifying neuroadaptations induced by chronic food restriction (FR) that increase the reward magnitude of drugs and associated cues. The main findings are that FR decreases basal dopamine (DA) transmission, upregulates signaling downstream of the D1 DA receptor (D1R), and triggers synaptic incorporation of calcium-permeable AMPA receptors (CP-AMPARs) in the nucleus accumbens (NAc). Selective antagonism of CP-AMPARs decreases excitatory postsynaptic currents in NAc medium spiny neurons of FR rats and blocks the enhanced rewarding effects of d-amphetamine and a D1...

In this study, fluorescence emission spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF) were employed to define the putative interaction sites and their accessibility for the biologically important metals of Irving William Series.Key findingsSeveral hotspot residues in the ZAG scaffold involved in these interactions were mapped and their binding affinity score for each metal has been determined. Their binding abilities of these sites and aggregation propensities of ZAG were monitored by fluorescence emission spectroscopy.SignificanceThe prediction of such binding affinity with metals on the active sites and its impact on the c...

Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)-Guar gum-silver nanocomposite films (CG-Ag0NC) are developed to address these issues. The silver nanoparticles were generated in the CMC-Guar gum matrix through a reduction by Mentha leaves extract. All the films we...

Liszt, Inge DepoortereAbstractTaste perception on the tongue is essential to help us to identify nutritious or potential toxic food substances. Emerging evidence has demonstrated the expression and function of bitter taste receptors (TAS2Rs) in a wide range of extra-oral tissues. In particular, TAS2Rs in gastrointestinal enteroendocrine cells control the secretion of appetite regulating gut hormones and influence hunger and food intake. Furthermore, these effects may be reinforced by the presence of TAS2Rs on intestinal ...

Among obese subjects, severe obesity represents a subpopulation with the highest risk of depression. We investigate the antidepressant effect of a local VA weight management program (Managing Overweight Veterans Everywhere - MOVE) among depressed veterans with severe obesity.

This past October, President Trump issued a proclamation that would bar immigrants in certain visa categories from entering the United States unless they purchase specified forms of health coverage or have the resources necessary to pay “reasonably foreseeable” medical costs. The stated motive is to reduce the costs of uncompensated care, or expenses incurred by hospitals and other providers when they deliver services to people without health coverage or the ability to pay.
