Maternal and obstetric complications in fetal surgery for prenatal myelomeningocele repair: a systematic review.

CONCLUSIONS: Although the efforts of further advancement of intrauterine prenatal MMC repair aim to increase neonatal outcomes, maternal health hazard will continue to be an issue of crucial importance and further studies are required. PMID: 31574465 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurposeTo determine the dose-response associations of sedentary behaviour with cardiovascular diseases (CVD), cancer, and all-cause mortality, and to examine whether the sedentary-associated all-cause mortality risk was affected by appearance of diabetes and hypertension, physical activity, and body mass index (BMI).DesignWe carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis to search Medline, SportDiscus, and Web of Science for eligible studies.SettingsProspective cohort studies that reported sedentary time and CVD, cancer, and mortality incidents.MeasurementsTwo authors independently extracted data based on predef...

This study examines the association between CVD risk factors and nativity/length of US residence. Using cross-sectional data from 15,965 adults in the 2011–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (analyzed in 2018), prevalence ratios and predicted marginals from logistic regression models are used to estimate associations of CVD risk factors (i.e., hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes, overweight/obesity and smoking) with nativity/length of residence (

In conclusion, high-dose NR induces the onset of WAT dysfunction, which may in part explain the deterioration of metabolic health. Towards a Rigorous Definition of Cellular Senescence The accumulation of lingering senescent cells is a significant cause of aging, disrupting tissue function and generating chronic inflammation throughout the body. Even while the first senolytic drugs capable of selectively destroying these cells already exist, and while a number of biotech companies are working on the productio...

Authors: Chudek A, Owczarek AJ, Ficek J, Almgren-Rachtan A, Chudek J Abstract Background: Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) became a standard in the management of hypertension. However, there are few data concerning the utilisation of blood pressure (BP) monitors in daily clinical practice.Aim: The aim of this analysis was to show: (1) how frequently hypertensive patients are equipped with BP monitors, (2) how often they perform regular HBPM and running BP diaries, (3) what are the correlates of utilisation of BP monitors, in a large real-life cohort of hypertensives examined for the efficacy of antihypertensiv...
