, Jacobo-García K, Cossio-Aranda J Abstract Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome characterized basically by a circulatory deficit to cover the metabolic and energetic demands of the body. This condition has a broad spectrum in its clinical presentation, affects the quality of life significantly, impacts the family/social environment, and generates a great demand for health services. The purpose of this research is to report the situational diagnose of patients with HF in Mexico. We evaluated 292 patients, 70.2% were men. Average age was 56.7 ± 14.3 years. Ischemic heart disease is the main etiology (98 p...

Conclusion: The overall incidence of VTE is 4% with more than half of events occurred after the stoppage of thromboprophylaxis highlighting the necessity of adopting an extended protocol. Independent predictors included older age, female gender, morbid obesity and preoperative thrombocytosis. These group of patients require particular attention for the prevention of this complication.

This study investigated the therapeutic outcomes of LDJB-SG and predictors of type 2 diabetes (T2D) remission in Chinese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2. SETTING: A university hospital. METHODS: This retrospective study included 28 T2D patients with a BMI of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2 who underwent LDJB-SG. T2DM remission, weight loss, postoperative nutrition status, and complications at 1- and 3-year follow-up were assessed. Remission of T2DM was defined as a fasting blood glucose

ConclusionRYGB results in better weight loss compared to SG in Asians, but the rate of T2DM resolution/improvement and improvement of hypertension appears to be similar. In Asian patients without symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux disease in whom metabolic surgery is performed mainly for T2DM and metabolic syndrome, SG may be the surgery of choice.

Cook Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) causes local chronic inflammation that increases risks of Barrett’s esophagus (BE) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA), yet symptomatic GERD is absent in approximately half of all such patients. Obesity exacerbates GERD and is also a component of metabolic syndrome (MetS). We evaluated the hypothesis that MetS is a GERD-independent mechanism by which obesity is associated with increased risks of BE and EA using data from the UK Clinical Practi...

Director chair, film slate and load horn. Here’s a proposal for you: If, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, a long list of conditions are reduced or reversed at no risk, almost no cost, reversing even chronic and potentially fatal conditions . . . does that mean that the notion of self-directed health might be on the horizon, i.e., putting control over health back in our own hands? I think it does. No, we will never implant our own defibrillators or take out our own gallbladders. But so many chronic health conditions afflicting modern humans recede that I believe that it is entirely reasonable to start talking a...

The absolute risk of carcinogenic progression given Barrett's esophagus (BE) is low and a majority of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) cases are diagnosed at first endoscopy without having had a prior diagnosis of BE. Therefore the research field has largely utilized case-control study designs with the implicit assumption that each case-group assessed (reflux, BE, EA) is representative of that stage in a linear progression towards cancer. To test the assumption that EA cases are a homogeneous group and therefore research findings may contribute to evidence-based prevention programs for diagnosed BE populations, we conducted ...
