Empowering Diabetes Patients with Interventions Based on Behaviour Change Techniques. Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019;260:154-161 Authors: Jung O, Glachs D, Strohmeier F, Mulrenin R, Huisman S, Smith I, van Keulen H, Sont J, Ploessnig M Abstract The number of people with diabetes is increasing in every European country and like all chronic diseases it cannot be cured. However, patient empowerment is an acknowledged strategy for improving the patients' health situation. This paper describes the Action Plan Engine developed as a tool for diabetes patients in the POWER2DM project. The Action Plan Engine offers a guided workflow based on treatment goals and activities. A periodic review evaluates how successful a patient has fulfilled these goals and activities. Part of the evaluation is detailed feedback, in particular about 170 interventions based on Behaviour Change Techniques in order to change a patient's lifestyle behaviour towards a healthier, diabetes-appropriate lifestyle. Additionally, the Action Plan Engine offers decision trees for coping with barriers regarding glucose monitoring, exercise, carbohydrate, insulin and stress. PMID: 31118332 [PubMed - in process]

This study evaluated the effectiveness of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for the assessment of skeletal muscle perfusion in diabetes mellites. MATERIAL AND METHODS Electronic databases (Embase, Google Scholar, Ovid, and PubMed) were searched for required articles, and studies were selected by following pre-determined eligibility criteria. Meta-analyses of mean differences or standardized mean differences (SMD) were performed to evaluate the significance of difference in contrast-enhanced ultrasonography measured muscle perfusion indices between patients with diabetes and healthy individuals or between basal and final va...

Authors: Niewiński G, Graczyńska A, Morawiec S, Raszeja-Wyszomirska J, Wójcicki M, Zieniewicz K, Główczyńska R, Grąt M Abstract BACKGROUND Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is the standard of care for end-stage liver disease. The Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) was originally created to assess the survival rate of patients with chronic diseases, although it was modified and adopted in OLT recipients as CCI-OLT. MATERIAL AND METHODS In total of 248 consecutive liver transplant recipients with viral cirrhosis in 98 (39.5%) patients were included. CCI-OLT was calculated assigning a weight of 3...

Conclusions: The mFI-5 is an independent predictor of postoperative morbidity and mortality in elderly patients undergoing surgery for hip fractures. This clinical tool can be used by hospitals and surgeons to identify high-risk patients, accurately council patients and families with transparency, and guide perioperative care to optimize patient outcomes. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.
