Frequency of medical visits due to osteoarticular problems of the adult general population in Spain. EPISER2016 Study.

[Frequency of medical visits due to osteoarticular problems of the adult general population in Spain. EPISER2016 Study]. Gac Sanit. 2019 Sep 23;: Authors: Seoane-Mato D, Martínez Dubois C, Moreno Martínez MJ, Sánchez-Piedra C, Bustabad-Reyes S, en representación del Grupo de Trabajo del Proyecto EPISER2016 Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of medical visits due to osteoarticular problems by the adult general population in Spain and its association with sociodemographic, anthropometric and lifestyle variables. METHOD: Cross-sectional population-based study. Sample with 4916 subjects aged 20 years and over. A telephone questionnaire, with a question about medical visits due to osteoarticular problems, was used. To estimate the prevalence and its 95% confidence interval (95%CI), weights were calculated according to the probability of selection in each of the sampling stages. RESULTS: 28.9% (95%CI: 27.6-30.2) of the people reported having consulted a doctor in the last year because of osteoarticular problems. We observed an association with age, sex, level of education, and body mass index. PMID: 31558387 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The findings indicate that hospitalizations are associated with a significant increase in mortality in patients recently diagnosed with HF. It is important to reinforce the need for the prevention of acute decompensated HF and for strategies to improve post-discharge outcomes. PMID: 31702737 [PubMed - in process]

García UreñaAbstractDespite low mortality in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery, the number of high-risk patients is increasing and has become a health problem. At present, surgery is understood as a continuous process, in which numerous guidelines added to less invasive techniques offering a lesser physiological impact upon patients with serious comorbidities are responsible for the final outcome. The prev...

The objectives of the present study are to evaluate levels of mercury, cadmium, lead, and arsenic in dried mushrooms, to determine the effect of cooking on the contents of these elements, and to evaluate their bioaccessibility in the mushrooms ready for consumption. The results showed that Hg levels in Amanita ponderosa, Boletus edulis, Marasmius oreades, and Tricholoma georgii, as well as Cd levels in some samples of Amanita caesarea and T. georgii, exceeded the legislated limits. Cooking significantly reduced the levels of As (26–72%), whereas the reduction in levels of Hg, Cd, and Pb was much lower. However, the b...

zares B, Ruiz-Medrano R Abstract Infectivity of an alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV) isolate from Leonotis nepetaefolia in different tomato cultivars was analyzed. Symptoms typical of AMV infection were observed in indicator plants, but not in Flora Dade and Rio Grande tomato cultivars; however, mild symptoms were observed in cv. Rutgers. Furthermore, at least 1 kb of the 3´ segment of RNA 2 and the coat protein gene were missing in systemic leaves of inoculated Rio Grande and Flora Dade plants, while in cv. Rutgers infected with this AMV strain all genomic components were detected. Northern blot analysis of...
