Bariatric surgery has been widely used in the treatment of obesity in recent years. It has been shown to be effective in reaching the ideal weight and reducing obesity-induced comorbidities. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is defined as the first-step bariatric surgery for patients in the high surgical risk group. It has been shown that the laparoscopic approach has lower complication rates, shorter hospital stays, and earlier mobilization compared to open surgery. However, postoperative pain management is very important because it might cause major morbidity, especially pulmonary complications in the early postoperative period. The ultrasound (US) guided erector spina plane (ESP) block is a novel interfacial plan block defined by Forero et al. at 2016. ESP block provides thoracic analgesia at T5 level and abdominal analgesia at T7-9 level. In the literature, there is not still any randomized study evaluating ESP block efficiency for postoperative analgesia management after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
This is a double-blinded randomized controlled trial, to evaluate the effectiveness of daily supplementation of 3.2 g CLA on body fat reduction and lipid profile in overweight or obese Chinese adults, during a lifestyle counselling-based weight loss.
A clinical three-armed assay has been established to permit an evaluation of the effectiveness of implementing PUSH notifications in the actions orientated towards improving body composition through the establishment of dietary patterns and an increase in physical activity.
Healthcare organizations have increasingly formed quality-improvement Learning Collaboratives to improve care for specific populations; however, there are few data on the effectiveness of this strategy compared to conventional training approaches. The primary aim of this cluster randomized implementation trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of a virtual learning collaborative (VLC) in the implementation of a lifestyle intervention for persons with serious mental illness (SMI) in routine mental health settings, compared to typical implementation consisting of site training and one-on-one individual technical assistance (TA). The investigators hypothesize that VLC compared to TA will be associated with greater Program Participation, Program Fidelity, and a greater proportion of participants achieving clinically significant weight loss.
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of Lace Up and Move (LUAM), a structured after-school exercise intervention, designed to increase moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and enhance sleep quality among Hispanic and African American (AA) boys and girls.
To investigate the effect of added sugar to bake beans on glycemic and insulinemic response.
This study aimed the effect of the Accupedo pedometer smartphone app intervention, with goal setting of walking prescription of 10,000 steps per day, in overweight adults.
Compare the Effect of Different Physical Programs on the Body Composition of Adult Women With a Total Body Fat Percentage ≥ 30 % at the Beginning of the Test.
Prior research suggests that sedentary behavior is detrimental to health, independent of exercise activity. Sedentary behavior is defined as behaviors that involve low levels of energy expenditure ≤1.5 metabolic equivalents (including sitting, watching TV, reading, and driving). Due to the high burden of sedentary behaviors in modern-day societies, this has potential implications for novel intervention strategies to reduce sitting (outside of regular exercise activity) and improve health. In addition, the modern workplace fosters sedentary behavior, and sedentary jobs now make up more than 80% of the workforce. The goal of this project is to implement interventions to reduce sedentary behavior at work and evaluate their impact on physiologic parameters and markers of disease. Specifically, the investigators/study team will use direct measurement of vascular endothelial function as one of our outcomes. This is important since conduit artery endothelial function, assessed by arterial flow-mediated dilation (FMD), is a powerful indicator of vascular inflammation and predictor of future cardiovascular events.
The aim of the study is the assessment of the effectiveness of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) among obese patients, including a well-balanced low-calories diet, an individual dietary counseling conducted by dietitians and supported by telemedicine (T) or hypnotic suggestions (HS). The study will cover a group of 90 adult patients, both sexes, with obesity (BMI ≥30 kg/m^2) undergoing MNT a dietetic treatment. Three arms are planned in the study scheme, according to the scheme: Group 1 - individual MNT (30 people); Group 2 -individual MNT and T (30 people); Group 3 - individual MNT and HS (30 people). The authors hope that the results of the study will allow to develop a new model of the most effective management of obesity, resulting in weight reduction and maintaining this effect over time. The results obtained during the study will also allow to assess the impact of the therapy applied on lifestyle changes, dietary habits and the knowledge about the disease among obese patients.
