Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an emerging epidemic worldwide and is regarded as a hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Only a few studies have discussed the biological features associated with quantitative assessment of ultrasound for characterizing NAFLD. Our aim was to delineate relevant metabolic characteristics using a new quantitative tool, the ultrasound quantitative diagnostic index (QDI). A total of 394 ultrasound data were analyzed to extract texture-feature...

Summary Background & Aims Loss of muscle and bone mass is prevalent in the stroke population. Few studies have investigated the difference between having a stroke and hemiplegia and their influence on segmental body composition. This study aimed to evaluate the changes of body composition in the extremities and trunk of stroke patients in comparison with those of the healthy controls. Methods Stroke patients with an onset of longer than 6 months and healthy participants matched by age and gender...

This study sought to determine whether chronic hepatitis B or C would modify the association between insulin analogues and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risks. We conducted a nationwide nested case-control study for HCC cases and matched controls from 2003 to 2013 among newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients on any antidiabetic agents in Taiwan before and after exclusion of chronic viral hepatitis, respectively. A total of 5832 and 1237 HCC cases were identified before and after exclusion of ...

Austin-Moore hemiarthroplasty (HA) had been selectively used for elderly patients with femoral neck fractures. With increasing life span and activity, the sequela of Austin-Moore HA make the implant no longer favorable. The treatment of failed Austin-Moore HA with advanced acetabular erosion is challenging; however, little has been published regarding this topic. The aim of this study was to evaluate the mid-term results of using cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) in octogenarians. Between ...

Abstract Background Vibrio vulnificus , Aeromonas hydrophila , methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), group A Streptococcus , and group B Streptococcus are commonly detected causative agents of necrotizing fasciitis (NF) in Chia-Yi Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate a multiplex PCR method for the simultaneous detection of five of the most important human pathogens involved in NF by using a novel combination of species-specific genes. Meth...

Background/purpose Hepatic encephalopathy (HE), a major neuropsychiatric complication in advanced liver disease, is associated with poor prognosis. Sarcopenia, characterized by a decline in muscle mass, strength, and physical performance, is prevalent in liver cirrhosis. This study aims to explore whether sarcopenia is associated with HE in cirrhotic patients. Methods PubMed and EMBASE were searched for relevant cohort and case-control studies investigating the association between sarcopenia and...
