Association between Obesity and Heart Failure and Related Atrial Fibrillation: Patient-Level Data Comparisons of Two Cohort Studies
CONCLUSION: Obesity was associated with an increased risk of HF and HF-related AF in both Korean and UK populations. The higher incidence in the UK population was likely due to the higher proportion of obese individuals.PMID:38154475 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0264 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Moderate-Intensity Rosuvastatin/Ezetimibe Combination versus Quadruple-Dose Rosuvastatin Monotherapy: A Meta-Analysis and Systemic Review
CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis showed that 5 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe had largely comparable lipid-modifying efficacy and tolerability as 20 mg rosuvastatin.PMID:38154476 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0285 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Clinical Characteristics and Risk of Hypoxemia Development in Women Infected with SARS-CoV-2 during Pregnancy
CONCLUSION: A quarter of SARS-CoV-2-infected women developed hypoxemic respiratory difficulty during pregnancy. SARS-CoV-2 infection during the third trimester, CRP elevation at admission, and no vaccination increased the risk of hypoxemia in pregnant women.PMID:38154477 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0270 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Comparison of Physician-Controlled Maneuver and Assistant-Controlled Maneuver during Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography
CONCLUSION: Requiring less assistants, PCWGC showed comparable efficacy and safety to ACWGC. PCWGC can be considered as an alternative option, especially in facilities lacking manpower and resources.PMID:38154478 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0115 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Questionnaire-Based Survey of Diabetes Self-Care Activities and Barriers among Young Korean Adults with Early-Onset Diabetes
CONCLUSION: Young adults with early-onset diabetes showed a greater barrier to regular exercise and poor compliance with foot care and blood sugar testing. Healthcare providers must strengthen their relationship with young adults with diabetes to provide more education and guidelines for lifestyle modification focused on exercise and to promote higher compliance with diabetic self-care activities for improving clinical outcomes.PMID:38154479 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0183 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

Diagnosis of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia via Whole Exome Sequencing and Histologic Findings
CONCLUSION: Through this study, we were able to confirm the value of WES as one of the diagnostic tools for PCD, which increases with TEM, rather than single gene tests. These results will prove useful to hospitals with limited access to PCD diagnostic testing but with relatively efficient in-house or outsourced access to genetic testing at a pre-symptomatic or early disease stage.PMID:38154480 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0238 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)

High Radiation Dose to the Fornix Causes Symptomatic Radiation Necrosis in Patients with Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma
CONCLUSION: The maximum dose to the fornix was a significant factor for SRN development. While fornix sparing may help maintain neurocognitive function, additional studies are needed.PMID:38154474 | DOI:10.3349/ymj.2023.0112 (Source: Yonsei Medical Journal)
