Obesity is associated with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis and development of end-stage renal disease in children. Ren Fail. 2019 Nov;41(1):1016-1020 Authors: Zheng X, Chen Q, Chen L Abstract Objectives: To explore the association of obesity with the occurrence of Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) and development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in children with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP).Methods: This was a retrospective study of 446 pediatric patients with diagnosed HSP. All patients' demographic characteristics, clinical features, and laboratory data were collected from the electronic medical records in hospitals from January 2008 to December 2014, and the prognosis was followed up till December 2018. Multivariate logistic regression and the Cox proportional hazard regression were employed for exploring the potential risk factors for occurrence of HSPN and development of ESRD, respectively.Results: It is reported that 35.2% (n = 157) of HSP patients had HSPN. The multivariate logistic regression showed that obesity (OR = 3.82; 95% CI: 1.92-7.49; p

Authors: Clapp B, Liggett E, Ma C, Castro C, Montelongo S, Van Noy K, Dilday J, Tyroch A Abstract Background: Many bariatric surgeons test the anastomosis and staple lines with some sort of provocative test. This can take the form of an air leak test with a nasogastric tube with methylene blue dye or with an endoscopy. The State Department of Health Statistics in Texas tracks outcomes using the Texas Public Use Data File (PUDF). Methods: We queried the Texas Inpatient and Outpatient PUDFs for 2013 to 2017 to examine the number of bariatric surgeries with endoscopy performed at the same time. We used the Interna...
