Tongue Fat and its Relationship to Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 01:10:11 +0100 | Sleep
Conclusions:There is increased tongue volume and deposition of fat at the base of tongue in apneics compared to controls. Increased tongue fat may begin to explain the relationship between obesity and obstructive sleep apnea.Citation:Kim AM, Keenan BT, Jackson N, Chan EL, Staley B, Poptani H, Torigian DA, Pack AI, Schwab RJ.

Upper Airway Collapsibility is Associated with Obesity and Hyoid Position
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 01:10:11 +0100 | Sleep
Conclusions:Pharyngeal critical closing pressure is associated with obesity and hyoid position. Tongue dimensions, pharyngeal length, and the mandibular plane to hyoid distance are associated with obesity variables. These findings provide novel insight into the potential factors mediating upper airway collapse in obstructive sleep apnea.Citation:Genta PR, Schorr F, Eckert DJ, Gebrim E, Kayamori F, Moriya HT, Malhotra A, Lorenzi-Filho G. Upper airway collapsibility is associated with obesity and hyoid position. SLEEP 2014;37(10):1673-1678. (Source: Sleep)

Abstract

Factors associated with obesity and overweight in school-aged children
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 20:47:11 +0100 | Texto e Contexto - Enfermagem
To assess the factors associated with excess weight (overweight/obese) in school children enrolled in the public education network in Divinópolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Cross-sectional study with 1187 children between 6 and 14 years of age from municipal schools in Divinópolis, Minas Gerais. The prevalence of obesity and overweight was calculated based on the parameters of the World Health Organization, using the WHO Anthro-Plus Program. Logistic regression was used to identify the variables associated with excess weight, at a significance level of 5%. A prevalence of 24.4% of excess weight was identified. Family income and maternal education were determinants of overweight in the study population (p<0.05). Excess weight was configured as an important health problem among the students...

“Supersize” Panniculectomy: Indications, Technique, and Results
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:05:28 +0100 | Annals of Plastic Surgery
Conclusions“Supersize” panniculectomy is defined as a panniculectomy in the obese patient population with a resected pannus specimen weight greater than or equal to 10 kg, and a pannus formation that extends to the mid-thigh level or below. Despite the obstacles and reported high complication rates, the incidence of major complications in this series justifies the operative intervention in patients with an otherwise therapy-resistant “supersize” pannus. A preoperative computed tomographic imaging may rule out an underlying hernia in most cases and is recommended by the authors. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

The Influence of Preexisting Lower Extremity Edema and Venous Stasis Disease on Body Contouring Outcomes
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:05:26 +0100 | Annals of Plastic Surgery
ConclusionsUsing VCSS, post-bariatric patients with prolonged lower extremity edema experienced clinically identifiable signs of disease prior to weight loss and body contouring surgery. Thus, careful preoperative evaluation may help identify at-risk patients and aid in managing postoperative expectations. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

Urinary proteomics in obstructive sleep apnoea and obesity
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:05:03 +0100 | European Journal of Clinical Investigation
ConclusionIn this study, we report for the first time, urinary proteomic profile analyses using CE‐MS in OSA and non‐OSA obese groups. The differences in urinary proteomic profiles prior to adjustment for multiple testing, with increased metabolic syndrome in obese OSA subjects, suggests that there may be a role for CE‐MS in characterising urinary profiles in severely obese populations with OSA.This article is protected by copyright.
