The primary purpose of this observational registry is to evaluate the safety of the easyEndoTM Universal Linear Cutting Stapler and reloads from Ezisurg Medical when used to create anastomoses during standard and robot-assisted laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) surgery. Stapler performance during surgery as well as post-operative pain and the clinical efficacy of the procedures will be determined as secondary objectives.
The purpose of this study is to comprehensively evaluate Salud Escolar (School Health), a program led by the Mexican Ministries of Health and Education. This comprehensive evaluation considers a design, implementation, results, and impact evaluation of Salud Escolar.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to use endoscopic band ligation for weight loss. All ligatures will be performed in the gastric body starting at the distal body; 5 parallel rows, with the last one in the proximal body.The entire procedure can be completed in 30 min. Oxygen is used for endoscopic air insufflation.Endoscopy is performed using propofol for sedation.
This study is exploring the association between vitamin D and Type 2 diabetes risk in normal weight and overweight UK adults.
Obstructive Sleep apnea (OSA) is a common and underdiagnosed condition in obese pregnant women with serious and life-threatening complications to the mother and baby. The investiators propose that a non-invasive method may be used to detect patients at risk of OSA, giving these women access to the necessary treatment to treat this condition. The method is a estimation of body water, which has been shown to be linked to OSA in the non-pregnant population. Body water is estimated by applying surface electrodes to a participant who is lying down by measuring bioimpedance through body tissues by applying a tiny current between the electrodes. The electrical stimulation is not felt by the participant and has no negative effects on mother or baby.
This project will examine the feasibility and acceptability of Enhanced Project Health, a dissonance-based obesity intervention, and whether this intervention results in significantly greater reductions in weight and improvements in lifestyle behaviors than an assessment only condition. Participants will be young adults enrolled in college.
The study is evaluating the effects of a standard diet to a low carbohydrate diet in obese women after having a baby. The purpose of the study is to determine if a low carbohydrate diet is associated with improvement in insulin sensitivity in postpartum women.
The project will address health disparities via a community-engaged approach in partnership with black churches. The long-term goals of this integrated project are to: 1) prevent and reduce childhood obesity through improved parenting practices and home environment related to obesity; 2) expand Extension capacity for community-engaged research and collaborative programming with faith-based organizations; 3) enhance Extension strategies for recruiting and training community volunteers to extend Extension reach; and 4) train future health professionals to provide culturally appropriate collaborative community-based health programs. The project will target the school-aged subset (ages 6-11, first through fifth grade) of the USDA target age range of ages 2-19. The 14-month randomized control trial design of the research component will generate new knowledge regarding effectiveness of a integrated family-based intervention enhanced with social and environmental (church) support to prevent obesity in school-aged children. The research design with a financial literacy active control condition and the primary nutrition and physical activity intervention being tested meets two needs expressed by the community partner and allows rigorous evaluation of both Extension programs. It is hypothesized that parents in the intervention group will have higher levels of self-efficacy for obesity-prevention behaviors, parenting practices related to food and physical activity, improved home food and physical activity. The long term impact is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity.
This trial studies how well exercise and nutrition education work in improving physical function and quality of life in older breast cancer survivors. Exercise and nutrition education may help to improve the level of fitness, cardiovascular health, and quality of life in breast cancer survivors.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and weight loss effect of lorcaserin at the end of the first year of treatment (Week 48) in overweight and Chinese adult obese patients compared to placebo.
