Effect of Sarcopenic Overweight on Lung Transplant Based in Three-Dimensional Reconstructed Psoas Muscle Mass

ConclusionsSarcopenia was associated with poorer short-term outcome, and sarcopenic overweight with poorer overall survival of lung transplant patients.

However, whether or not PLTP has a direct effect on insulin sensitivity and obesity is largely unknown. Here we analyzed the effect by using PLTP knockout (PLTP−/−) mouse model. ...

We describe a 63-year-old woman with signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension. Brain MRI revealed hydrocephalus. Venous Doppler ultrasound showed external compression of the omohyoid muscles on the internal jugular veins. During jugular vein decompression, intracranial pressure dropped from 18 to 6  mmHg. Patient is asymptomatic at 2-year follow-up, with decreased brain ventricles. These findings could represent a novel form of high-pressure hydrocephalus that can be successfully treated without a CSF shunt. We called this syndrome JEDI (jugular entrapment dilated ventricles intracranial hype rtension).

Conclusion: Our results from the TDHS 2013 showed several risk factors of children overweight/obesity. Determining obesity risk factors, monitoring obese children/adults, and providing a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment and prevention of obesity will be useful for the future.

There is growing body of data showing the associations of genetic variants of the genes involved in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway with diabetes and obesity. We aimed to investigate the association between MetS and its compo...

Authors: Rhee H, Love T, Groth SW, Grape A, Tumiel-Berhalter L, Harrington D Abstract Objective: To examine the prevalence of overweight and obesity in urban adolescents with asthma and to investigate the relationships between anthropometric measures and asthma outcomes including quality of life, asthma control and lung function. Methods: Adolescents with an asthma diagnosis, 12-20 years-old, were recruited from three urban communities in the United States. Spirometry and anthropometric data including height, weight, and waist circumferences were collected along with questionnaire data measuring quality of life, as...

Given a good enough data set, there are ways to produce evidence for causation in the observed relationships between patient characteristics and risk of age-related disease. While it is well accepted by now that being overweight does in fact cause a raised risk of all the common age-related diseases, a shorter life expectancy, and a raised lifetime medical expenditure, more data never hurts. Researchers have a good understanding of the mechanisms involved in these relationships. In particular, visceral fat tissue around the abdominal organs generates chronic inflammation, which acts to accelerate tissue decline and age-rel...
