CONCLUSIONS: VIS was feasible in clinical routine. Compared to the other evaluated blocks, the VIS for the infragluteal access to the sciatic nerve was rated worst. VIS is found to be worse in obese patients. Further research is needed to evaluate VIS and its suitability for specific questions as for instance anesthetists' learning curves, comparison of different patient populations, ultrasound devices or different nerve blocks.

Authors: Sağraç D, Şişli HB, Doğan A Abstract The Apelin receptor (Aplnr) is a G-protein coupled receptor which has a wide body distribution and various physiological roles including homeostasis, angiogenesis, cardiovascular and neuroendocrine function. Apelin and Elabela are two peptide components of the Aplnr signaling and are cleaved to give different isoforms which are active in different tissues and organisms.Aplnr signaling is related to several pathologies including obesity, heart disases and cancer in the adult body. However, the developmental role in mammalian embryogenesis is crucial for migrat...

This study tried at  identifying lifestyle patterns in a sample of Lebanese adults and investigating their association with metabolically healthy overweight and obesity (MHOv/O).MethodsThis study used data from a community-based survey of Lebanese adults living in Greater Beirut (n = 305). Dietary intake was assessed using an 80-item food frequency questionnaire. MHOv/O was defined as having one or none of the following metabolic abnormalities: triglycerides ≥ 150 mg/dL; systolic blood pressure ≥ 130 mmHg; diastolic blood pressure ≥ 85 mmH...

Authors: Barrea L, Pugliese G, Muscogiuri G, Laudisio D, Colao A, Savastano S Abstract The prevalence of obesity increases worldwide and has a significant economic impact on health care systems. A comprehensive program of lifestyle modification, including diet, exercise, and behavior therapy is considered the first option for achieving the significant weight loss. However, the intrinsic difficulties associated with maintenance of lifestyle changes contribute to the unsatisfactory long-term outcomes reported and weight regain in the obesity management. In this context, pharmacological approaches are useful to maximi...

AbstractIntroductionOsteoporosis is a common disorder characterized by decreased bone mineral density (BMD). Interestingly, osteoporosis and obesity have several similar features, including a genetic predisposition and a common bone marrow stem cell. With aging, the composition of bone marrow shifts to adipocytes, osteoclast activity increases, and osteoblast function declines, resulting in osteoporosis.Materials and methodsWe performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) analysis with osteoporosis and body mass index (BMI) and did identify an association in 349 and 384 SNPs by filtering with the significantp values (p

AbstractIntroductionIn hepatitis C (HCV) patients, obesity and/or diabetes may increase the risk of liver-related outcomes. We aimed to determine whether diabetes and/or obesity are associated with adverse outcomes in direct-acting antiviral (DAA)-treated HCV patients.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective study of 33,003 HCV-infected, DAA-treated Veterans between 2013 and 2015. Body mass index was used to categorize patients into underweight (
