In this case report, we present a novel stabilization technique of the pubic symphysis using an internal spinal fixator in a 78-year-old morbidly obese woman having a pelvic disruption type B1.1 (AO classification). We treated the disruption using an internal fixator to reduce the extent of the incision and soft-tissue damage.

For vancomycin treatment in obese patients, there is no consensus on the optimal dose that will lead to the pharmacodynamic target (AUC 400-700 mg*h L ). This prospective study quantifies vancomycin p...
Limited data exist on direct-acting oral anticoagulants in morbidly obese patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE). We compared clinical and health/economic outcomes with rivaroxaban versus warfarin...
The prevalence rate of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been reported in 74 to 90% of morbidly obese patients. This study aims to develop a scoring system that predicts significant liver f...
Data regarding the characteristics of patients who are morbidly and super obese, and the resources they use in nonbariatric hospital settings are limited. The aims of our study were to explore the fre...
In 2016, the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) published guidelines advising caution when using direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients with morbid obesity due to limit...
Investigators hypothesized that the impact of surgery in terms of inducing a hypercoagulable state is more evident in morbidly obese pregnant women as opposed to their non-obese counterpar...
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) resolution in morbidly obese patients following bariatric surgery suggests the efficacy of metabolic surgery in non-morbidly obese patients (body mass index...
Along with the technological advances in medicine, videolaryngoscope is the most commonly preferred technique for intubation of expected difficult airway management such as morbidly obese ...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of abnormal liver biochemistry tests in the world. The prevalence rate of NAFLD has been reported to be 30-40% in men and ...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the pharmacokinetics (how drugs are absorbed in the body, how they are distributed within the body and how they are removed from the body ...
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
An injury in which the damage is located on the opposite side of the primary impact site. A blow to the back of head which results in contrecoup injury to the frontal lobes of the brain is the most common type.
Two populations of Zucker rats have been cited in research--the "fatty" or obese and the lean. The "fatty" rat (Rattus norvegicus) appeared as a spontaneous mutant. The obese condition appears to be due to a single recessive gene.
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Pulmonary injury following the breathing in of toxic smoke from burning materials such as plastics, synthetics, building materials, etc. This injury is the most frequent cause of death in burn patients.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
