Human immunodeficiency virus infection and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease: a wide range of alterations in lip...
Lercanidipine is a calcium antagonist with no cardiodepressant activity, long lasting antihypertensive action and reno-protective effect. Our previous data demonstrated that lercanidipine blocks L-typ...
Although the impact of coding errors, with respect to obesity, has been previously reported, it is unclear whether morbid obesity is prone to similar coding inaccuracies. Therefore, the purpose of thi...
Morbid obesity is considered to have a stronger association with complications after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Although the impact of obesity coding errors has been previously reported, the exten...
Plasma concentrations of soluble (pro)renin receptor [s(P)RR], which are elevated in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), have not been studied in morbid obesity. The aim of this study is to c...

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
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).
Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.
A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
