Differential sex ‐related effect of left ventricular ejection fraction trajectory on the risk of mortality and heart failure readmission following hospitalization for acute heart failure: A longitudinal study
ConclusionSex was a significant factor in determining the follow-up trajectory of LVEF and predicting differences in outcomes after an AHF admission. The findings suggest that women have a higher risk of AHF readmissions at higher LVEF values, while men have a higher risk at lower LVEF values. For all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, the same direction of the association was inferred but they were not significant. (Source: European Journal of Heart Failure)

Unravelling the Mechanisms Behind Exercise Intolerance and Recovery in Long COVID
This study investigated the relationship between heart rate recovery at the first minute (HRR1), a proxy for autonomic imbalance, and exercise intolerance in patients with long COVID. Additionally, the study aimed to assess the effects of a 12-week home-based inspiratory muscle training program on autonomic modulation in this patient population.

National taxation on sugar-sweetened beverages and its association with overweight, obesity, and diabetes
CONCLUSIONS: Taxation is highly heterogeneous across countries in terms of products and design, which might influence its effectiveness. Our findings provide some evidence regarding a deceleration of the increasing prevalence rates of overweight and obesity among children occurring in some countries following introduction of taxation.

64. Immediate postpartum IUD use among adolescents in the United States: Update from National Inpatient Sample
Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are a highly effective method of contraception and are the recommended form of contraception in adolescents. Immediate postpartum IUD placement is associated with lower rates of unintended pregnancy and short interval pregnancy, both of which are prevalent in adolescents. Data regarding immediate postpartum IUD use is not widely available; at the same time, understanding utilization of immediate postpartum IUDs in adolescents is crucial for local, regional, and national resource allocation, safety monitoring, and public health efforts in surveillance of unintended adolescent pregnancy rates. (So...

A combination crown lengthening and implant placement guide
Surgical procedures, including crown lengthening and implant placement, have become more predictable and less invasive because of the use of digital planning tools. A method combining a cone beam computed tomography and a digital scan with a virtual planning software program is described to fabricate a combination guide for both surgical esthetic crown lengthening and guided implant placement.

Optimal dispersal and diffusion-enhanced robustness in two-patch metapopulations: origin's saddle-source nature matters
Theory Biosci. 2024 Feb 21. doi: 10.1007/s12064-023-00411-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTA two-patch logistic metapopulation model is investigated both analytically and numerically focusing on the impact of dispersal on population dynamics. First, the dependence of the global dynamics on the stability type of the full extinction equilibrium point is tackled. Then, the behaviour of the total population with respect to the dispersal is studied analytically. Our findings demonstrate that diffusion plays a crucial role in the preservation of both subpopulations and the full metapopulation under the presence of stochastic per...
