A Conceptual Framework for the Impact of Obesity on Risk of Cesarean Delivery
This study presented a conceptual framework that hypothesized how obesity may impact factors that would lead to a CD.
ConclusionStandard dosing of enoxaparin in morbidly obese patients will most likely lead to supratherapeutic anti-Xa levels and thus further investigation is warranted to better determine appropriate dosing.
CONCLUSION: Higher VAT rather than SAT is associated with an increased risk of unsuspected pulmonary embolism on routine CT scans in hospitalized gastrointestinal cancer patients. ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE: Our findings indicate that VAT is a stronger risk factor for unsuspected pulmonary embolism than BMI and SAT in hospitalized patients with gastrointestinal cancer.

This study evaluates the incidence of bariatric surgery (BS) before total joint arthroplasty (TJA) in New York State and compares patient comorbidities and 90-day postoperative complications of patients with and without BS before TJA. METHODS: The NY Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System database between 2005 and 2014 was reviewed and 343,710 patients with TJA were identified. Patients were stratified into the following three cohorts: group 1 (patients who underwent BS
ConclusionsAccording to our data, ICH occurred in nearly 20% anticoagulated patients with HGG, as described in literature, and did not correlate with poorer prognosis. High ECOG performance status was an independent risk factor for ICH. Further effort towards better prediction models for VTE and ICH in HGG is warranted.Legal entity responsible for the studyThe authors.FundingHas not received any funding.DisclosureAll authors have declared no conflicts of interest.
MONDAY, Sept. 30, 2019 -- Real-world evidence shows that rivaroxaban reduces the risk for recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in morbidly obese patients, with similar safety and efficacy as warfarin, according to a study published in the October...
In conclusion, older adults exhibited decreased markers of UPR activation and reduced coordination with autophagy and SC-associated gene transcripts following a single bout of unaccustomed resistance exercise. In contrast, young adults demonstrated strong coordination between UPR genes and key regulatory gene transcripts associated with autophagy and SC differentiation in skeletal muscle post-exercise. Taken together, the present findings suggest a potential age-related impairment in the post-exercise transcriptional response that supports activation of the UPR and coordination with other exercise responsive pathways (i.e....
Abstract Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of premature death and disability in humans and their incidence is on the rise globally. Given their substantial contribution towards the escalating costs of health care, they also generate a high socio-economic burden in the general population. The underlying pathogenesis and progression associated with nearly all CVDs is predominantly of atherosclerotic origin that leads to the development of coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, venous thromboembolism and, peripheral vascular disease, subsequently causing myocardial infarction, cardiac ar...
Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases
CONCLUSION: Serum Fetuin-B was positively associated with ba-PWV and may link liver fat accumulation to subclinical atherosclerosis via insulin resistance. PMID: 31527322 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
New real-world study of patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) and morbid obesity shows safety and effectiveness of XARELTO ® were similar to warfarin, with significantly less healthcare resource utilization (HRU) and total medical costs
