“Supersize” Panniculectomy: Indications, Technique, and Results
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:05:28 +0100 | Annals of Plastic Surgery
Conclusions“Supersize” panniculectomy is defined as a panniculectomy in the obese patient population with a resected pannus specimen weight greater than or equal to 10 kg, and a pannus formation that extends to the mid-thigh level or below. Despite the obstacles and reported high complication rates, the incidence of major complications in this series justifies the operative intervention in patients with an otherwise therapy-resistant “supersize” pannus. A preoperative computed tomographic imaging may rule out an underlying hernia in most cases and is recommended by the authors. (Source: Annals of Plastic Surgery)

The Influence of Preexisting Lower Extremity Edema and Venous Stasis Disease on Body Contouring Outcomes

Urinary proteomics in obstructive sleep apnoea and obesity
Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:05:03 +0100 | European Journal of Clinical Investigation
ConclusionIn this study, we report for the first time, urinary proteomic profile analyses using CE‐MS in OSA and non‐OSA obese groups. The differences in urinary proteomic profiles prior to adjustment for multiple testing, with increased metabolic syndrome in obese OSA subjects, suggests that there may be a role for CE‐MS in characterising urinary profiles in severely obese populations with OSA.This article is protected by copyright.
