To identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) perceived by childcare staff for preventing childhood overweight.
The role of chorioamnionitis (CA) in the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is difficult to establish, because CA-exposed and CA-unexposed infants frequently present different baseline characteristics. We performed an updated systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting on the association between CA and ROP. We searched PubMed and EMBASE for relevant articles. Studies were included if they examined preterm or very low birth weight (VLBW,
Many studies have indicated that leptin is correlated with breast cancer occurrence and tumor behavior. However, this issue remains controversial. Therefore, we conducted an updated meta-analysis to investigate the role of leptin in breast cancer.
This article reports how a large Medi-Cal managed care plan addressed challenges in accessing health care for approximately 7,000 enrollees with multiple chronic conditions through a project known as the Behavioral Health Integration and Complex Care Initiative. The initiative increased staffing for care management, care coordination, and behavioral health integration. In our evaluation of the initiative, we demonstrated that participation in it was associated with improved clinical indicators for common ch...
This systematic review and meta-analysis addresses the efficacy and safety of corticosteroids in critically ill patients with sepsis.
Antihypertensive drugs are often used in the belief that lowering blood pressure will prevent progression to more severe disease, and thereby improve pregnancy outcome. This Cochrane Review is an updated review, first published in 2001 and subsequently updated in 2007 and 2014.
The San Diego 2007 wildfires and Medi-Cal emergency department presentations, inpatient hospitalizations, and outpatient visits: An observational study of smoke exposure periods and a bidirectional case-crossover analysis.
The frequency and intensity of wildfires is anticipated to increase as climate change creates longer, warmer, and drier seasons. Particulate matter (PM) from wildfire smoke has been linked to adverse respiratory and possibly cardiovascular outcomes. Children, older adults, and persons with underlying respiratory and cardiovascular conditions are thought to be particularly vulnerable. This study examines the healthcare utilization of Medi-Cal recipients during the fall 2007 San Diego wildfires, which exposed...
We conducted a meta-analysis and systematic review of published randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the impact of financial incentives (FI) on objectively-measured physical activity (PA) and weight loss (WL) in adults with sedentary behavior or chronic health conditions.
Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) is a magnetic resonance imaging technique that quantifies the magnetic susceptibility distribution within biological tissues. QSM calculates the underlying magnetic susceptibility by deconvolving the tissue magnetic field map with a unit dipole kernel. However, this deconvolution problem is ill-posed. The morphology enabled dipole inversion (MEDI) introduces total variation (TV) to regularize the susceptibility reconstruction. However, MEDI results still contain art...
Endometriosis, a hormone-dependant condition affecting around 10% of women in their reproductive years, has frequent consequences on fertility. Indeed, a proportion of women will require assisted reproductive techniques or surgery in order to achieve pregnancy. Recent refining of stimulation protocols and vitrification techniques has created new possibilities in the field of fertility preservation. As a consequence, oocyte vitrification is now discussed not only in oncologic situations, but also in other co...
Cigarette smoking is an established risk factor for pancreatic cancer but an updated quantification of the association is lacking. Our aim is to provide the most accurate and updated estimate of the dose-response relationships between cigarette smoking and pancreatic cancer risk.
To perform an updated systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating patient important outcomes for patients undergoing robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) and open radical cystectomy (ORC).
The seizure outcomes for patients with brain arteriovenous malformations (AVM) who undergo intervention with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) are incompletely understood. To determine, in a systematic review and meta-analysis, the rates of seizure control after SRS for patients with AVM-associated seizures and identify predictive factors.
Patients with cancer often face financial hardships, including loss of productivity, high out-of-pocket (OOP) costs, depletion of savings, and bankruptcy. By providing financial guidance and assistance through specially trained navigators, hospitals and cancer care clinics may be able mitigate the financial burdens to patients and also minimize financial losses for the treating institutions.
This paper considers the micro-econometric analysis of patients' hospital choice for elective medical procedures when their choice set is pre-selected by a general practitioner (GP). GPs have a dual role with regard to elective referrals in the English NHS, advising patients and at the same time taking account of the financial implications of referral decisions on local health budgets. The paper proposes a two-stage choice model that encompasses both patient and GP level optimization. It demonstrates that e...
Obesity is considered as one of the risk factors of kidney cancer. However, the results are not consistent in reported original studies, as well as in published meta-analysis. This study aims to clarify the relationship between overweight/obesity and kidney cancer by an updated overall and dose-response meta-analysis.
Self-reported reasons for gambling have been highlighted as crucial to understanding why adults develop problems with gambling. However, research on motives among adolescents remains scarce. The aim of this study is to explore the factorial structure of the Gambling Motives Questionnaire (GMQ) and to analyze differences in motives among adolescents, depending on the gambling activity and level of gambling severity. A total of 698 adolescent gamblers (M = 15.24, SD = .76) were assessed. As well as the GMQ, t...
A previous meta-analysis concluded that TNF-α 238A/G and TNF-α 308A/G polymorphisms were not associated with the risk of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in the overall population or Caucasian subjects. With the publication of a fair number of studies on the association between TNF-α polymorphisms and JIA in recent years, we conducted this updated meta-analysis to make a more accurate evaluation of such relationship.
While the costs of medical training continue to increase, surgeon income and personal financial decisions may be challenged to manage this expanding debt burden. We sought to characterize the financial liability, assets, income, and debt of surgical residents, and evaluate the necessity for additional financial training.
Pilonidal disease (PD) is associated with significant disability culminating in time off work/school. Recurrence rates remain high following conventional surgical interventions. Flap-based techniques are postulated to decrease recurrence. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the effectiveness of the classical Limberg (LF) and Karydakis (KF) flaps in the treatment of PD.
Financial literacy is a skill that requires an ongoing investment of time and often is overlooked throughout medical training. Physicians are facing an unprecedented student loan burden upon graduation from medical school, coupled with stagnant and decreasing salaries and few financial skills to help navigate this terrain. The purpose of this article is to address several specific steps every resident should take during training to establish good financial practices.
Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is a rare but devastating autosomal recessive inherited disease caused by mutations in gene AGXT. Pathogenic mutations of AGXT were mostly reported in Caucasian but infrequently in Asian, especially in Chinese. To update the genotypes of PH1 in the Chinese population, we collected and identified 7 Chinese probands with PH1 from 2013 to 2017 in our center, five of whom had delayed diagnosis and failed in kidney transplantation. Samples of peripheral blood DNA from the 7 pat...
