Trends in chronic disease incidence rates from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System.

CONCLUSION: Chronic disease incidence estimates based on CCDSS data are decreasing over time, but not at a constant rate. Further investigations are needed to assess if this decrease is associated with changes in health status, data quality, or physician practices. As well, population characteristics that may influence changing incidence trends also require exploration. PMID: 31210047 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: This study confirmed published results that labour progresses more slowly as maternal BMI increases. The study was performed in a centre with a specialized BMI pregnancy clinic; thus weight gain adherence, awareness of labour differences, and patient counselling may have contributed to low Caesarean section rates. Obstetric care providers should consider differences in maternal BMI in labour progression before undertaking a potentially premature Caesarean birth, especially in primiparas.

We present a case of torrential tricuspid regurgitation and a redundant Eustachian valve hampering the manipulation of the delivery system. We were able to reach the tricuspid valve by looping two standard guidewires into the atrium. We performed a tricuspid-plasty by implanting 2 MitraClips with a satisfactory final result. This technique can be applied when the Eustachian Valve impairs the navigation in the right atrium.

DiscussionWe estimated higher risks of ALL in the offspring of women with pregestational diabetes. These results are consistent with previous findings and compatible with a role of prenatal glycaemic environment in childhood cancer aetiology.

ConclusionOver 60% of Medicare patients with asthma continued and were adherent to omalizumab over 12-month follow-up. Patient age, LIS status, and the numbers of evaluation and management physician visits were among factors associated with treatment adherence and discontinuation.

This study examined the relationship of living environment (urban vs. suburban vs. small-town/rural) to social anxiety (SA) in a sample of 902 TGNC individuals who participated in the Trans Health Survey. Analysis of variance revealed a significant difference in SA across living environments. Those living in small-town/rural environments reported significantly higher levels of SA compared to those living in urban environments. There was a trend-level difference in SA in suburban compared to urban environments. Linear regression analyses revealed that living environment significantly moderated the relationship between socia...

Publication date: Available online 20 July 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Pornpatr A. Dharmasaroja, Nattaphol Uransilp, Pritsana PiyabhanAbstractThe anatomic variation of Circle of Willis (CW) has been shown to have a great impact on its compensatory capacity during acute ischemic stroke. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of variations in CW on collateral circulation in patients with acute ischemic stroke who had major artery occlusion. Patients with acute ischemic stroke within 4.5 h of stroke onset who had at least moderate severity of stroke (NIHSS ≥ 6), caused by major...

Conclusions: Long-term exposure to NO2 and road traffic noise was associated with higher risk of heart failure, mainly among men, in both single- and two-pollutant models. High exposure to both pollutants was associated with highest risk. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1272 Received: 25 October 2016 Revised: 09 August 2017 Accepted: 09 August 2017 Published: 26 September 2017 Address correspondence to M.
