Sepsis is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after surgery. Most studies regarding sepsis do not differentiate between patients who have had recent surgery and those without. Few data exist re...
Hemodialysis patients are at high risk for foot ulceration. The aim of this prospective study was to describe the prevalence and risk factors for foot ulcers in hemodialysis dependent patients. From 2...
Bone marrow edema (BME) is an imaging diagnosis defined by an abnormal accumulation of intraosseous interstitial fluid within a bone on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) investigation. The aim of this ...
Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) can be administered for prolonged periods with minimal toxicity. The risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with this therapy has not been reported. We d...
Knowledge of risk factors is crucial to develop management and treatment protocols for the prevention of lower extremity amputation for patients with diabetic foot infections (DFI).
Foot ulceration is a risk factor that has been associated with early death in patients with chronic kidney disease. Little is known about the relationship between these risk factors that d...
Early identification of potential risk factors for the onset of diabetic foot ulcers are recommended. However, in a Swedish context, there has been no standardised routines to be used in t...
Pre-existing pain and severe postoperative pain are predictors of persistent pain after surgery, but a complete understanding on the development of persistent pain is still lacking. The st...
The purpose of this research study is to determine the relationships between foot muscle, foot motion, and toe deformity. Results from this investigation will help the investigators to und...
Diabetes is a chronic disease with increasing prevalence worldwide with a high burden to individuals and the society and it is expected to be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030. Diabet...
Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
El Nino-Southern Oscillation or ENSO is a cycle of extreme alternating warm El Niño and cold La Nina events which is the dominant year-to-year climate pattern on Earth. Both terms refer to large-scale changes in sea-surface temperature across the eastern tropical Pacific. ENSO is associated with a heightened risk of certain vector-borne diseases.
