The Effect of Obesity on Revision Discectomy After Singlelevel Lumbar Discectomy.
The Effect of Obesity on Revision Discectomy After Singlelevel Lumbar Discectomy. J Surg Orthop Adv. 2020;29(1):10-12 Authors: Smith EJ, Inkrott BP, Kim CY, Du JY, Ahn UM, Ahn NU Abstract The prevalence of obesity has been rising, creating a major public health concern. While several studies have shown obesity to increase the risk of surgical complications, few have analyzed its effects on reoperation, specifically after singlelevel lumbar discectomy. Data was obtained using the commercially available Explorys software that houses deidentified data for several major healthcare systems. A database search was used to find all patients who had undergone a lumbar discectomy. Scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, smoking history and depression were excluded as possible confounding variables, after which 25,960 patients remained. Of them, 690 were found to have undergone a revision discectomy within 2 years. Those who were obese were found to have a relative risk of 1.64 for revision discectomy compared to those who were nonobese, 95% confidence interval (95%CI) 1.322.03, p 0.0001. These findings contribute to the importance of modifiable risk factor assessment preoperatively and their effects on surgical complications.

CONCLUSION: there were an expressive quantitative number of absences due to depression, in which it was observed, especially, that the absence time remained long. PMID: 32491123 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: depressive symptoms are associated with burden of comorbidities, greater number of disease complications, hemodialytic intercurrences and functional dependence. Physical exercise practice can be an effective care strategy. PMID: 32490957 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Quality of life and social support were identified as protective factors for depressive symptoms while being at risk of malnutrition, living alone, reporting pain and being female are predictors. PMID: 32490955 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Oat bran supplementation was effective in improving triglyceride, total cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol levels, suggesting that it is a therapeutic option for cardiovascular risk control in patients with psychiatric disorders. PMID: 32490954 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: BD on a single or multiple occasion during the month was associated with a higher prevalence of overweight. Therefore, such a lifestyle should be considered in weight gain prevention strategies. PMID: 32490946 [PubMed - in process]
