Prevalence of Sarcopenia and Undernutrition in Patients With Cirrhosis and Abdominal Hernia

Sarcopenia is a common condition in patients with cirrhosis, with a prevalence of around 50%. It is unknown if the presence of sarcopenia may influence the prevalence of abdominal hernias in this group of patients. Clinical, nutritional and radiological evaluation will be performed in two groups of cirrhotic patients to ...

Role of Structured Days on Weight Gain

For children (5-12yrs) from low-income households, summer vacation is a "window of vulnerability" and represents an extended period of time (typically 9-10 weeks) in which declines in academic performance occur. For 30 years, empirical evidence has indicated that children from low-income households experience greater declines in reading and math skills ...

Environmental Factors and the Gut Microbiome - Endocannabinoid Axis

The gut microbiome and the endocannabinoid system (ECS) could be interacting together and influence local enteric and peripheral metabolic functions and mental health. The association of some host environmental factors (e.g. age, metabolic status, dietary habits) with gut microbiota composition and function has been investigated but, to our knowledge, little ...

Phase N/A

Frailty in Thoracic Surgery

The purpose of this study is to develop an all-encompassing frailty model using laboratory and functional studies. A frailty model will help us determine prior to surgery who will require rehabilitation and skilled nursing needs beyond discharge. This model will also help us determine who will likely be readmitted and ...
