Abstract Purpose A systematic review was performed to investigate the impact of obesity on complications following total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA), reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) and total elbow arthroplasty (TEA). Methods Electronic databases and grey literature were searched for studies that evaluated the influence of obesity (Body Mass Index[BMI] ≥30 kg m2) on upper limb arthroplasty outcomes. Fifteen studies were identified, however only twelve reported predetermined outcomes. ...

Abstract Objectives Children with obesity may possess unique injury characteristics that may affect their emergency care. To better understand this relationship, we investigated the association of obesity in pediatric trauma patients and intra-abdominal injuries (IAIs) and routinely utilized emergency department (ED) diagnostic procedures (computed tomography (CT) scans and ultrasound (US) examinations). Methods This secondary data analysis utilized Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Netw...

Abstract Objective Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the US. Physical activity is an important component of obesity reduction, but little is known about contemporary exercise levels among overweight/obese American adults. In this study, we compared current physical activity levels in overweight and obese US adults to those of normal weight individuals as well as ascertained which sociodemographic factors influence the meeting of physical activity recommendations in these three groups. ...

Abstract Objective In recent years, many original studies have shown that skipping breakfast has been associated with overweight and obesity; however, the results of different studies are inconsistent. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies to synthesize the associations between skipping breakfast and the risk of overweight/ obesity. Methods We did a systematic search using Pubmed, and Ovid searched up to August 2019. Observational studies (cohort ...

Abstract Background The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) has been frequently employed as a measure of depression in studies of obesity, with the majority of studies reporting an improvement in scores following weight loss after bariatric surgery. However, the effects of different bariatric techniques on depression score improvement is uncertain. Method The study included 685 obese patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) (n = 443) or gastric bypass (GB) (n = 242) and completed ...

Abstract Background Obesity is prevalent in Indigenous populations who exhibit significant differences in body fat composition. While excess regional adiposity can be partially inferred from clinical measurements, noninvasive imaging allows for direct quantification of specific fat depots. Epicardial fat is a visceral adipose tissue that has been strongly associated with cardiometabolic disease in other populations. However, this ectopic fat depot has yet to be characterized in Indigenous popula...

Abstract Objective Data on obesity in relation to bone mineral density(BMD) in infants and preschool children were sparse in China. The objective of this study was to examine the associations between body mass index (BMI) and BMD. Subjects and methods This was a large population-based multicenter study in which the representative children aged 0–5 years were recruited from 13 Children’s Health Care Centers by a stratified cluster random-sampling method in Jiangsu Province, China. BMD was measure...

Abstract Background Intermittent energy restriction (IER) has shown early success in adolescents with obesity, however efficacy trials are needed. This study aims to determine if IER results in lower body mass index (BMI) z-score after 52 weeks in metabolically unhealthy adolescents with obesity compared with continuous energy restriction (CER). Methods/design This is a prospective, randomised, multi-centre trial conducted in tertiary care settings, with three phases: jumpstart (weeks 0–4); inte...
