The Influence of Gingival Exposure on Smile Attractiveness as Perceived by Dentists and Laypersons
Conclusions: In this study sample, the respondents considered that the most attractive smile involved a covering of 0.57 mm (in average) of the upper incisors by the upper lip. Although smile attractiveness did not appear to be influenced by gender or profession in this study population, it was influenced by previous orthodontic treatment. The participants' roles of dentist or layperson influenced the factors chosen for an aesthetic smile.PMID:36143942 | PMC:PMC9505136 | DOI:10.3390/medicina58091265 (Source: Medicina (Kaunas))

Association of Blood MCP-1 Levels with Risk of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: The meta-analysis showed that compared to the controls, serum/plasma levels of MCP-1 in adults with OSA were significantly more, as well as adults with severe OSA having more serum/plasma MCP-1 levels compared to the adults with mild to moderate OSA. Therefore, MCP-1 can be used as a diagnostic and therapeutic factor in adults with OSA.PMID:36143943 | PMC:PMC9506345 | DOI:10.3390/medicina58091266 (Source: Medicina (Kaunas))

Factors of Obesity and Metabolically Healthy Obesity in Asia
Medicina (Kaunas). 2022 Sep 13;58(9):1271. doi: 10.3390/medicina58091271.ABSTRACTThe East Asian region (China, Japan, and South Korea) is comprised of almost 1.5 billion people and recent industrialization has brought with it a pandemic of rising obesity, even in children. As these countries are rapidly aging and functioning at sub-replacement birthrates, the burgeoning costs of obesity-related care may threaten socialized healthcare systems and quality of life. However, a condition called metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) has been found to be without immediate cardiopulmonary or diabetic risk. Thus, maintenance of the M...

The Impact of COVID-19 Lockdowns in a Sample of Outpatients in a Mental Health Department of a Metropolitan Hospital in Milan
Conclusions: Our findings show continued high distress levels and increased psychological burdens during the second phase of restrictions; this could be described as "pandemic fatigue", a general psychological weariness due to pandemic-related restrictions, as well as a lack of motivation to comply with them. As mental health professionals, our mission during these difficult times has been to keep community psychiatry services accessible, with particular regard to vulnerable and marginalized populations.PMID:36143951 | PMC:PMC9504059 | DOI:10.3390/medicina58091274 (Source: Medicina (Kaunas))

Long-Term Effects of Rifaximin on Patients with Hepatic Encephalopathy: Its Possible Effects on the Improvement in the Blood Ammonia Concentration Levels, Hepatic Spare Ability and Refractory Ascites
Conclusions: RFX reduced blood ammonia concentration and improved hepatic spare ability and the quality of life of patients with long-term HE to up to 36 months. Our study revealed the effects of RFX against refractory ascites, suggesting that renin concentration may be a predictive marker for assessing ascites control.PMID:36143954 | PMC:PMC9501622 | DOI:10.3390/medicina58091276 (Source: Medicina (Kaunas))
