- Effects of a Mediterranean diet on the development of diabetic complications: A longitudinal study from the nationwide diabetes report of the National Program for Prevention and Control of Diabetes (NPPCD 2016-2020)by Fatemeh Ghaemi on October 16, 2021
CONCLUSION: The Mediterranean dietary pattern is associated with a lower incidence of CVD and microvascular complications (i.e. diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy) among a cohort of patients with T1D and T2D in Iran.
- Attendance at a Transitional Liver Clinic May Be Associated with Reduced Readmissions for Patients with Liver Diseaseby Lindsay Yoder on October 16, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with liver disease seen in a PA-led TLC may have a significant reduction in the 30-day readmission rate. Randomized trials are needed to establish the efficacy of PA-led post-discharge transitional care for this population.
- Satisfaction with social connectedness as a predictor for positive and negative symptoms of psychosis: A PHAMOUS studyby Jelle Sjoerd Vogel on October 15, 2021
CONCLUSION: This research indicates that interventions on SSC might positively impact mental health for people with psychosis. SSC is a small and robust predictor of future levels of positive symptoms. Negative symptoms could be predicted by SSC at one year.
- A comparative propensity-adjusted analysis of microsurgical versus endovascular treatment of unruptured ophthalmic artery aneurysmsby Joshua S Catapano on October 15, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: Compared with endovascular therapy, microsurgical clipping of unruptured OA aneurysms is associated with a higher rate of visual deficits but a lower rate of residual and recurrent aneurysms. In centers experienced with both open microsurgical and endovascular treatment of these lesions, the treatment choice should be based on patient preference and aneurysm morphology.
