Age- and Sex-Associated Impacts of Body Mass Index on Stroke Type Risk: A 27-Year Prospective Cohort Study in a Low-Income Population in China

Age- and Sex-Associated Impacts of Body Mass Index on Stroke Type Risk: A 27-Year Prospective Cohort Study in a Low-Income Population in China Hongfei Gu1†, Shuang Shao2†, Jie Liu3,4,5, Zhenqian Fan2, Yu Chen2, Jingxian Ni3,4,5, Conglin Wang6, Jun Tu3,4,5, Xianjia Ning3,4,5, Yongzhong Lou1*, Bin Li1* and Jinghua Wang3,4,5* 1Department of Neurology, Tianjin Haibin People's Hospital, Tianjin, China 2Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, The Second Hospital of Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin, China 3Department of Neurology, Tianjin Medical University General Hospital, Tianjin, China 4Laboratory of Epidemiology, Tianjin Neurological Institute, Tianjin, China 5Key Laboratory of Post-Neuroinjury Neuro-Repair and Regeneration in Central Nervous System, Tianjin Neurological Institute, Ministry of Education, Tianjin, China 6Department of Geriatrics, Tianjin Medical University General Hospital, Tianjin, China The relationship between body mass index (BMI) and stroke type has remained controversial despite studies demonstrating that BMI is related to stroke risk, especially in specific groups. We assessed the age- and sex-associated impacts of BMI on stroke type in a low-income, poorly educated population in China. The association of BMI with stroke type was estimated using Cox regression analyses in this prospective cohort study, after adjusting for sex, age, education level, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and alcohol drinking status.

This study investigated B. cereus levels in fried rice meals in Milan (Italy) and the effect of a post contamination. Spores of three B. cereus (ATCC 14579, clinical isolate GPe2 and an isolate from fried rice R1) were inoculated in fried rice with ham, scrambled egg and peas, then stored at 10 °C and 15 °C for 5 days; the L2 component of haemolysin BL was quantified in the product. In a second trial, inoculated fried rice was submitted to microwave heating (2 min at 600 W) to investigate a possible decrease in bacterial loads. At 15 °C, spores germinated very quickly, followed by a fast growth espe...

Authors: Kruthiventi SC, Kane GC, Sprung J, Weingarten TN, Warner ME Abstract Patients with pulmonary hypertension are at increased risk for postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs). Herein, we review PPCs in pulmonary hypertension patients undergoing non-cardiac procedures under general anesthesia. The medical records of pulmonary hypertension patients who underwent surgery with general anesthesia between 2010 and 2017 were reviewed for PPCs. In addition we reviewed nursing-documented respiratory depressive episodes in the post-anesthesia care unit to assess the associations between these episodes and later PP...

Authors: Gunawat PV, Shaikh ST, Deopujari CE Abstract Tumor induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a paraneoplastic syndrome which is mostly caused by a phosphaturic mesenchymal tumour mixed connective tissue variant (PMTMCT). These tumours do not have any specific site predilection but their presence in cranial compartment is very rare. Two cases of TIO secondary to phosphaturic mesenchymal tumour at the skull base are described ahead, one of which was in the posterior fossa and the other in middle cranial fossa. Early diagnosis and complete excision of PMT is essential in preventing morbidity secondary to osteomalacia. Th...
