If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney stones (urolithiasis), you may have several options for treatment. These include medical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), and ureteroscopy. A brief anatomy of the urinary tract The urinary tract includes kidneys (two organs that filter waste and extra water from the blood) ureters (two tubes bringing urine from each kidney to the bladder) bladder (organ that collects urine) urethra (a single tube through which urine in the bladder passes out of the body). The evaluation for kidney stones If your symptoms suggest kidney...

Conclusion: The presence of the PNPLA3 G allele is associated with a risk of NAFLD. Our study shows that subjects with variant PNPLA3 are not only at increased risk for the development and progression of NAFLD, but also have increased insulin resistance. PMID: 31304703 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Obesity-related changes in the composition of the body interfere with the proper functioning of the thyrotropic axis, leading to its disturbances and changes in the structure of the thyroid gland. Distinguishing what is related to obesity and what constitutes pathological changes is crucial for the proper treatment of patients. In this paper authors present a case of a patient with a diet-induced obesity, whose only abnormalities in thyroid assessment included an elevated level of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and hypoechoic thyroid gland on ultrasound. Based on this clinical situation, we reviewed li...

AbstractBackground and AimsLongitudinal assessment of body composition following bariatric surgery allows monitoring of health status. Our aim was to elucidate trends of anthropometric and clinical outcomes 3  years following sleeve gastrectomy (SG).MethodsA prospective cohort study of 60 patients who underwent SG. Anthropometrics including body composition analysis measured by multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis, blood tests, liver fat content measured by abdominal ultrasound and habitual physical activity were evaluated at baseline and at 6 (M6), 12 (M12), and 36 (M36) months post-surgery.ResultsSixty p...

AbstractBackgroundDespite high prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in China, understanding of the disease appears to be low.AimsWe assessed the knowledge of NAFLD among the public in Beijing, China, as well as diet and physical activity patterns, which may provide information useful for NAFLD prevention and management.MethodsWe surveyed adult patients and family members in the Peking University Health Science Center (PUHSC) ultrasound clinic and office staff in Beijing, China. Participants provided demographic and medical history data. NAFLD-related knowledge and diet and physical activity were assessed.ResultsA...

Authors: Tubinis MD, Lester SA, Schlitz CN, Morgan CJ, Sakawi Y, Powell MF Abstract BACKGROUND: Due to body habitus, lumbar epidural placement can be challenging in severely obese parturients. Several studies have been published assessing the usefulness of ultrasonography in the placement of neuraxial blocks. One patient population that is underrepresented in these studies is the severely obese parturient. We sought to determine if performing an abbreviated ultrasound exam of the lumbar spine to determine midline by locating spinous process could facilitate lumbar epidural placement in severely obese parturients. ...
