Acute Heart Failure Comorbidome: The Impact of Everything Else.

Acute Heart Failure Comorbidome: The Impact of Everything Else. Acta Med Port. 2020 Feb 03;33(2):109-115 Authors: Meireles MA, Golçalves J, Neves J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Heart failure frequently coexists with several comorbidities. Our aim is to evaluate the prognostic role of various comorbidities in the risk of acute heart failure development. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Comorbidities of patients with acute heart failure were, retrospectively, compared to a control group of patients with chronic heart failure admitted to an Internal Medicine unit in a 2-year period. Logistic regression models were constructed to determine their association with acute heart failure and to develop a comorbidome. RESULTS: We identified 229 patients with acute heart failure and 201 patients with chronic heart failure. Age and female gender were higher in acute heart failure group (p

Authors: Sen B, Sharma P, Blackburn J, Morrisey M, Corvey K, Menachemi N, Caldwell C, Becker D Abstract Background: The increase in pediatric obesity rates is well documented. The extent of corresponding increases in diagnoses of obesity-related conditions (Ob-Cs) and associated medical costs for children in public insurance programs is unknown. Methods: Retrospective claims data linked to enrollees' demographic data for Alabama's Children's Health Insurance Program (ALL Kids) 1999-2015 were used. Multivariate linear probability models were used to estimate the likelihood of having any Ob-C diagnoses. Two-part mode...

Authors: Choi JH, Noh JR, Kim YH, Kim JH, Kang EJ, Choi DH, Choi JH, An JP, Oh WK, Lee CH Abstract Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to a serious extent. It is a chronic disease that can lead to dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. In the present study, we investigated the anti-obesity effects of Sicyos angulatus (SA) extract on a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced C57BL/6J obese mice. The mice were divided into vehicle and three SA groups (25, 50, and 100 mg/kg body weight). The mice were fed a HFD with or without SA for 12 weeks. The oral administration of SA reduc...

In this study, we assessed the relationship between the circadian rhythm of urinary sodium excretion and hypertension. Urinary samples were collected during both the day (07:00 to 22:00) and night (22:00 to 07:00) to estimate night/day urinary sodium excretion ratios. Blood pressure (BP) and clinical data were also measured. A total of 1,099 Chinese CKD patients were recruited, 308 patients were excluded, and 791 patients were final enrolled in this study. Among them, 291 patients were normotensive and 500 were hypertensive CKD patients. A 1:1 propensity score matching (PSM) analysis was performed with age and estimated gl...

Authors: Gold PA, Garbarino L, Sodhi N, Barrack R, Springer BD, Mont MA Abstract The demographics of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) patients are changing. Individuals are more active, younger, and more obese. These changing demographics and a higher demand for longevity creates a new challenge for reliable and long-term implant fixation. Historically, cemented fixation has remained the gold standard, as cementless design and techniques from the 1980s and 1990s did not obtain long-term positive outcomes due to a failure of ingrowth onto the implants. Advances in the modern-day cementless TKA designs appear to have ov...

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...
