Background: Malnutrition is a strong predictor of prognosis in maintenance hemodialysis patients (MHD). We previously proposed a new and simple protein-energy wasting (PEW) score that appears to be useful for assessing the risk of mortality in patients on MHD. Objectives: In the present study, we evaluated the reliability of this PEW score as a predictor of hospitalization in Japanese patients on MHD. Methods: In this single-center, prospective cohort study conducted in Japan, PEW score was calc...

Introduction: Accidents represent a significant proportional of non-communicable disease in the current century, and chest injury is common. However, management and outcome of these injuries is poor in low resource setting like Tanzania. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and factors associated with mortality among chest injury patients at a tertiary level health facility in Tanzania. Method: A prospective Cross-Sectional study of chest injuries among trauma patients attended ...

Introduction: Uric acid is a product of purine metabolism and elevated serum concentration are very common in, and linked with hypertension and chronic kidney disease, conditions associated with heavy health burden and cardiovascular complications particularly in sub Sahara Africa. An assessment of factors relating hyperuricemia to hypertension and chronic kidney disease would therefore be necessary as way of mitigating the poor quality of life, morbidity and mortality associated with these dise...

Background: By studying the expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition regulators in cholangiocarcinoma and intrahepatic duct stones, the correlation between the expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition regulators and cholangiocarcinoma was revealed. Objective: The objective is to investigate the correlation between the expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EC) regulatory factors and cholangiocarcinoma in patients with intrahepatic duct stones and cholangiocarcinoma, to in...

Objective: The objective is to explore the long-term efficacy of total enteral nutrition in the treatment of abdominal abscess in Crohn’s disease. Methods: Patients treated with EEN in our hospital and whose abdominal abscess disappeared after 12 weeks of treatment were included, and the data of abscess recurrence and surgical treatment during follow-up were included. Results: A total of 44 consecutive cases meeting the criteria were included. The 1-year and 2-year recurrence rates were 22.5% an...

Objective: The objective is to evaluate autonomic dysreflexia (AD) severity between urodynamics and cystoscopy in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) above thoracic 6 (T6). Design: It is a cross-sectional survey. Subject and methods: The study was carried out in 22 patients with SCI above T6 who underwent both procedures of urodynamics and cystoscopy; all patients developed episodes of AD. The systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured and recorded at the b...

Objective: The objective is to evaluate the visual acuity, high-order aberrations and satisfaction in the cataract patients with the implantation of different types of AcrySof blue light filtering intraocular lens, which would provide the clinical guidance for the selection of individualized intraocular lens. Methods: From January 2019 to December 2020, the patients with age-related cataract in Guangzhou Red Cross Hospital were equally randomized to be divided into four groups. 20 patients (20 e...

Introduction: The exhaustion of healthcare resources due to the rising prevalence in Saudi Arabia mandates the search for each method that can help in better control of diabetes. Methods: The gathered task force gath-ered to develop an explicit, evidence-based consensus for the use of time-in-range targets as guidance for better glycemic control while using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). This article has the recommenda-tions of this expert panel. Results: HbA1c and self-monitoring blood gl...
