Paired Editorial - Ventral hernia surgery in morbidly obese patients, immediate or after bariatric surgery preparation: results of a case-matched study

Patients with obesity have a higher incidence of ventral hernias and are at greater risk of developing complications after hernia repair (1,2). These include a higher risk of recurrence, wound infection, wound breakdown and venous thromboembolic episodes. The elevated intra-abdominal pressure, increased abdominal circumference and visceral fat may play a role as does the association of obesity with type 2 diabetes.

Publication date: Available online 9 August 2019Source: Spatial and Spatio-temporal EpidemiologyAuthor(s): M. Vranckx, T. Neyens, C. FaesAbstractDisease mapping is a scientific field that aims to understand and predict disease risk based on counts of observed cases within small regions of a study area of interest. Hierarchical model-based approaches that borrow information from neighbouring areas via conditional autoregressive (CAR) random effects on the local disease rates have gained a lot of popularity, thanks to the readily implemented Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. Nowadays, many software implementations to model r...

Conclusions: The results evidenced the role of the domiciliary situation among outcomes at the national level, with lower prevalence of general and abdominal obesity in men living in rural areas. However, higher prevalences were found among women, especially for abdominal obesity.

This study aimed to identify different groups of pregnant women based on their behavioral, psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics and their pregnancy outcomes.In total, 2455 women who were 12 weeks pregnant completed a questionnaire on smoking behavior, health behaviors and psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics. Neonatal and maternal outcomes were extracted from the Dutch perinatal registration. Subgroups were identified with latent class analysis and adverse pregnancy outcomes were compared between subgroups with logistic regression.Women were classified into four latent classes. Two classes represent...

SabbaghSummaryNearly 5% of colorectal cancers are related to constitutional genetic abnormalities. In Lynch Syndrome (LS), the abnormality is a mutation of the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair system. The goal of this update is to update indications and surgical strategies for patients with LS. Different spectra of disease are associated with LS. The narrow spectrum includes cancers with a high relative risk: colorectal cancer (CRC), endometrial cancer, urinary tract cancers and small in...

Authors: Ericksen K, Fogel J, Verma RP Abstract Background: The etiopathogenesis of late preterm birth is undetermined. Placental histopathology (PH) reflects adverse intrauterine environment and is documented to be associated with preterm labor and neonatal morbidities. The placental histopathology has not been studied in late preterm infants. Purpose: We investigated placental pathological lesion as markers of adverse intrauterine environment during late preterm labor. Methods: In a retrospective case control study following placental histopathological and clinical variables were compared between late pre...

Trust for America's Health reported rising levels of obesity contributed to increased disease rates and health care costs (Levi et al., 2013). Factors associated with overweight and obesity rates include lower socioeconomic status, public insurance, and increased chronic disease rates.

ConclusionSynchronous VHR and BS in a bariatric unit is feasible with low recurrence rate. Laparoscopic VHR has lower complication rates than open, apart from seroma formation. Patients with diabetes have higher risk of infection.
