Assessment of Serum Copper State after Gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y Reconstruction for Gastric Cancer
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:20:24 +0100 | Digestive Surgery
Background: Some recent reports have noted that copper deficiency can occur in obese patients who have undergone bariatric surgery, such as Roux-en-Y (RY) gastric bypass or biliopancreatic diversion, or in patients who receive enteral nutrition through a jejunostomy. No reports appear to have assessed the serum copper state of patients following gastrectomy with RY reconstruction for gastric cancer. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted from June 2013 to December 2014. Serum copper levels (SCLs) in 242 out-clinic patients who underwent curative gastrectomy were obtained. Patients were classified into an RY group (n = 208) and a non-RY group (n = 34). Results: Hypocupremia was identified in 3 patients in the RY group (1.4%), and 2 patients in the non-RY group (5.9%; p = 0.146), but...

Thin colorectal cancer patients have shorter survival than obese patients

Although being overweight with a high body-mass index has long been associated with a higher risk for colorectal cancer, thinner patients might not fare as well after treatment for advanced cancer, according to a new study. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Calcium intake, serum vitamin D and obesity in children: is there an association?
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:12:10 +0100 | Revista Paulista de Pediatria
CONCLUSIONS: The studies reviewed showed an association between calcium and vitamin D with childhood obesity. Considering the possible protective effect of these micronutrients in relation to childhood obesity, preventive public health actions should be designed, with emphasis on nutritional education. OBJETIVO: Avaliar a associação da ingestão de cálcio e níveis séricos de vitamina D e a obesidade infantil, por meio de uma revisão integrativa. FONTES DE DADOS: A pesquisa foi feita nas bases Pubmed/MedLine, Science Direct e SciELO com publicações de 2001 a 2014. Usaram-se os termos em inglês combinados: "children" e "calcium" ou "children" e "vitamina D" associados, cada um, aos descritores: "obesity", "adiposity" ou "body fat", para todas as bases. Foram incluídos estudos que r...

Left Ventricular Assist Device–Associated Carbon Monoxide and Iron-Enhanced Hypercoagulation: Impact of Concurrent Disease
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 05:00:00 +0100 | ASAIO Journal
Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy is associated with thrombophilia despite anticoagulation. Of interest, LVAD patients have increased carboxyhemoglobin, a measure of upregulated heme oxygenase (Hmox) activity that releases carbon monoxide (CO) and iron. Given that CO and iron enhance plasmatic coagulation, we determined if LVAD patients had hypercoagulability and decreased fibrinolytic vulnerability with measurable CO and iron-mediated effects. Blood samples were obtained a month or more after implantation of the LVAD. Thrombelastographic methods to assess coagulation kinetics, fibrinolytic kinetics, formation of carboxyhemefibrinogen, and iron-mediated enhancement of clot growth were utilized. Coagulation and fibrinolytic parameter normal individual (n = 30) plasma values were...

Organizing for Quality Improvement in Health Care: An Example From Childhood Obesity Prevention
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 05:00:00 +0100 | Quality Management in Healthcare
Children in rural areas face higher rates of obesity than children in urban areas, and their clinicians face challenges with preventing and managing obesity and translation of evidence into practice. We evaluated how the quality improvement (QI) intervention, Healthy Eating Active Living TeleHealth Community of Practice (HEALTH COP), at 7 rural California clinics addressed these challenges. Focus group interviews with QI team members assessed their experiences and factors related to adoption of key changes. Key challenges were clinician and staff buy-in, changing ingrained clinical practices, and motivating patient and families. Facilitators were top-down organizational requirements for QI, linkages to local QI resources, involvement of clinical champions, alignment with existing practices...
