Summary of "HbA predicts long-term postoperative mortality in patients with unknown glycaemic status at admission for vascular surgery - an exploratory study."

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and Diabetes mellitus (DM) represent major public health challenges and are tightly associated. To facilitate early diagnosis, HbA has been implemented as the preferred diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of type 2 DM. HbA , fasting plasma glucose (FPG) value and 2-hour post glucose load values were compared and evaluated to find which test best predicted mortality in patients with PAD.

Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.

An acute, transmissible, infectious disease associated with high MORTALITY and MORBIDITY in young turkeys (poults). It is characterized by DIARRHEA; ANOREXIA; growth depression, and immune dysfunction. The cause is unknown but astroviruses (AVASTROVIRUS) and coronaviruses (CORONAVIRUS, TURKEY) have been isolated from diseased poults and are thought to cause the enteritis and increased susceptibility to bacterial infections.

A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
