Conclusion: Prevalence of hypertension was found to be higher among the diabetic group compared to the non- diabetic group (44.8% vs 42.6%), though the difference between the two was not very substantial. We therefore conclude that half of the urban poor are hypertensive even if they are not diabetic. PMID: 31793268 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Elderly hip fracture has a high risk of mortality (14%-58%). Thus, expeditious surgery within 24 hours of admission has been advocated in the Western literature to minimize mortality. Mortality rate at 1 year after surgery remains at 10% to 24%. In our study, even with aggressive co-management, the average delay to hip fracture fixation was more than 3 days; however, the 1-year mortality was relatively low (7.7%). This indicates the importance of preoperative optimization and postoperative rehabilitation for independent ambulation and mortality reduction in the elderly population.

A group of pregnant women with a UtA-PI below the 90th percentile (P90) and a second group with a UtA-PI ≥ P90 in the second trimester were included in this study. The children of these women were evaluated during their second or third year of life using...
