Epicardial and pericardial adipose tissues are associated with reduced diastolic and systolic function in type 2 diabetes.

The aim of this study was to investigate the association of epicardial (EAT) and pericardial (PAT) adipose tissues with myocardial function in type 2 diabetes (T2D). EAT and PAT were measured by ultra...

Active mode of excretion across digestive tissues predates the origin of excretory organs.

Most bilaterian animals excrete toxic metabolites through specialized organs, such as nephridia and kidneys, which share morphological and functional correspondences. In contrast, the excretory mechan...

An in-depth assessment of diabetes-related lower extremity amputation rates 2000-2013 delivered by twenty-one countries for the data collection 2015 of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

International comparisons of diabetes-related lower extremity amputation rates are still hampered by different criteria used for data collection and analysis. We aimed to evaluate trends and variation...
