Observational Study of the Association between Participation in High School Football and Self-Rated Health, Obesity, and Pain in Adulthood.

In conclusion, our findings suggest that playing football in high school was not significantly associated with poor or fair self-related health at the age of 65 but was associated with the risk of being obese as an adult compared to not playing football in high school. Our findings provide needed information about the risk of playing football to broader set of health outcomes. PMID: 31781744 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsSuper morbidly obese patients required fewer opioids and analgesics perioperatively. They exhibited higher comorbidities with greater anaesthesia time and ICU admissions. PACU stay time and pain scores were comparable.

In this study, we examined the effect of laparoscopic-guided transversus abdominis plane block (LG TAP) for further optimizing multimodal pain control.MethodsThis is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database of 140 consecutive patients undergoing LSG without TAP block (pre-TAP group) compared to 131 patients undergoing LSG with LGTAP (TAP group). All operations were performed laparoscopically utilizing uniform clinical pathways. Baseline characteristics for both groups were comparable. Both groups received standardized anesthesia. Outcomes included time to postoperative ambulation, pain scores, PCA vol...

CONCLUSION: This specific technique for dAVF characterisation has not been previously reported, although trans-venous angiography has been used to some effect. In view of diagnostic and therapeutic technical difficulties that are often faced in such patients, this technique may be a useful alternative that is not only helpful in accurate diagnosis but helps in providing an invaluable guide for the surgical approach. ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE: This case highlights the difficulties that one may be faced within cases of tortuous vasculature and the obese patient population. With this in mind we demonstrate how a unique hybri...

The opioid epidemic has had far reaching consequences for bariatric surgeons. We have had an awakening and have collectively realized that our sub-specialty has to do a better job at protecting our patients from this destructive addiction process. In a study of nine hospital systems in the US, 4.0% of patients who were not chronic opioid users prior to bariatric surgery converted to chronic use after surgery.1 Another similar study indicated that 77% of bariatric surgical patients who were on chronic pain medicines prior to surgery, not only remained on opioid therapy post surgically , but collectively increased their over...

Roux-en-O anatomy after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a rare and potentially devastating complication that can be frequently misdiagnosed 1,2. Generally, the biliopancreatic limb is inadvertently anastomosed to the gastric pouch and patients may present as a partial small bowel obstruction with most frequent complaint of abdominal pain, nausea, and bilious emesis. Radiologic studies and even surgical exploration may misdiagnose this atypical complication3,4.

Authors: Rudy HL, Cho W, Oster BA, Tarpada SP, Moran-Atkin E Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To determine the effects of massive weight loss on perioperative complications after lumbar fusion surgery (LFS). Overview of Literature: Patients who are obese are more likely to experience low back pain, which would require LFS. Nonetheless, they have a higher risk of perioperative complication development compared with individuals who are not obese. Methods: Patients who underwent LFS at hospitals that participated in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database withi...

Purpose of review The aim of this article is to describe the benefits of physical activity and exercise on rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, functioning, and symptoms; and offer recommendations for promotion of physical activity and exercise among people with rheumatoid arthritis. Recent findings In addition to well-known benefits of exercise such as improving cardiovascular health and metabolic syndrome and reducing obesity, exercise has consistently shown rheumatoid arthritis-specific benefits. Exercise and increases in physical activity improve clinically measured disease activity, reduce symptoms such as fati...

Abstract Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are reliable surgical options to treat pain and disability resulting from degenerative conditions around the hip and knee. Obesity is a modifiable risk factor that contributes to significant morbidity. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively compare outcomes in primary hip and knee arthroplasty for patients with increased body mass index (BMI) and those with normal BMI, using data from the registry of the Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute (ABJHI). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the data compiled in the ABJ...
