Hyperuricemia is not only a risk factor for gout but also an independent determinant of hypertension, diabetes, and chronic kidney diseases. Although the incidence of gout in Korean adults is increasing, epidemiologic studies on hyperuricemia in the general Korean population are limited. Thus, this study aimed at evaluating the prevalence of hyperuricemia and its associated factors among non-institutionalized Korean adults. The present study included 5548 participants (2403 men and 3145 women) aged ≥ 19 years from The Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey...

The most common human sex chromosomal disorder is Klinefelter syndrome (KS; 47,XXY). Adult patients with KS display a diverse phenotype but are nearly always infertile, due to testicular degeneration at puberty. To identify mechanisms causing the selective destruction of the seminiferous epithelium, we performed RNA-sequencing of 24 fixed paraffin-embedded testicular tissue samples. Analysis of informative transcriptomes revealed 235 differentially expressed transcripts (DETs) in the adult KS testis showing enrichment of long non-coding RNAs, but surprisingly not of X-chromosomal transcripts...

STUDY QUESTION: Which is the prevalence of a 47,XXY karyotype in human blastocysts biopsied during preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidies (PGT-A) cycles? SUMMARY ANSWER: The prevalence of a 47,XXY karyotype amongst male blastocysts without autosomal aneuploides is ~1%. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: The prevalence of Klinefelter syndrome is estimated as 0.1-0.2% in male newborns. However, the KS phenotype is extremely variable and there are men with a 47,XXY karyotype and less evident signs, who may go undetected...

Background: In HIV-infected patients on combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), lipodystrophy shares many similarities with metabolic syndrome, but only metabolic syndrome has objective classification criteria. We examined adipose tissue changes related to lipodystrophy and metabolic syndrome to clarify whether it may be acceptable to focus diagnosis on metabolic syndrome rather than lipodystrophy. Methods: A cross-sectional study of 60 HIV-infected men on cART and 15 healthy men...

Emerging evidence has shown that self-perception of overweight/obese status is associated with unfavorable cardiometabolic outcomes, above and beyond actual body weight. Given the lack of research among Asian populations, we examined the association between weight perception and metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiometabolic risks among Koreans. Data from the 2010-2015 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, including women (N = 12,181) and men (N = 9,448) aged 19-65 years, were analyzed...

AIMS: Polymer-free biolimus-eluting stents (PF-BES) have been shown superior to bare metal stents in high bleeding risk (HBR) patients treated with 1-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). However, limited evidence is available on PF-BES in non-HBR patients. We aim to evaluate the safety and efficacy of PF-BES in all-comer patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients with stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndromes (ACS) undergoing PCI with PF-BES in routine clinical practice were included in a multicenter, prospective registry...

Few studies have examined overall patterns of eating alone in relation to the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in Korean populations. The present study aimed to examine the relationship between patterns of eating alone and the risk of MetS in Korean adults. Data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) for 2013⁻2015 were used, with 8988 Korean adult participants, including 3624 men and 5364 women, aged 18 to 64 years. Patterns of eating alone were categorized into eight groups based on the total frequency of eating alone on a daily basis in the past one year: (1) three times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; (2) twice for breakfast and dinner; (3) twice for lunch and dinner; (4) twice for breakfast and lunch; (5) once for breakfast only; (6) once for lunch only; (7) once for dinner only; and (8) never eating alone...

BACKGROUND: Life-time diagnostics of wild type transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR(wt)-amyloidosis) is virtually absent, even though ATTR(wt)-amyloidosis is an underestimated cause for morbidity and mortality, particularly in the older age group. AIM: To study incidence, demographic characteristics, and morpho-functional features of ATTR(wt)-amyloidosis in patients with FC IV CHF and LV hypertrophy > 15 mm according to autopsy data. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Postmortem reports were retrospectively analyzed for patients (n=141; 19 % males, 81 % females) of cardiology departments aged ≥69 with the underlying CHF syndrome...

Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide. Life under high-altitude (HA) hypoxic conditions is believed to provide highlanders with a natural protection against cardiovascular and metabolic diseases compared with sea-level inhabitants. However, some HA dwellers become intolerant to chronic hypoxia and develop a progressive incapacitating syndrome known as chronic mountain sickness (CMS), characterized by excessive erythrocytosis (EE; Hb ≥21 g/dL in men, Hb ≥19 g/dL in women). Evidence from HA studies suggests that, in addition to CMS typical signs and symptoms, these highlanders may also suffer from metabolic and cardiovascular disorders...

Background: Residual false channel is common after repair of type A acute aortic dissection (TAAAD). Starting from our recent series of TAAAD patients we carried out a retrospective analysis, regarding the failure of primary exclusion at the time of the initial operation. We classified the location of the principal entry tears perfusing the residual false channel. The proposed technique represents our attempt to correct the mechanism of false channel perfusion during primary repair. We describe a new technique designed to address some limitations of standard hemiarch aortic replacement...

REVIEW
Jürgen Harreiter, Alexandra Kautzky-Willer
Lifestyle intervention programs are effective in the prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in high risk populations. However, most studies only give limited information about the influence of sex and/or gender effectiveness of these interventions. So far, similar outcome was reported for diabetes progression and weight loss. Nevertheless, long-term data on cardiovascular outcome are sparse but favoring women regarding all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. In both men and women, sex hormone imbalances and reproductive disorders are associated with a higher risk of T2DM development...

Background Low urine pH is associated with several metabolic diseases, such as dyslipidemia, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. However, the association between low urine pH and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) remains unknown. Therefore, we conducted a community-based cross-sectional study to investigate this association. Methods Between April 2013 and March 2014, the records of 4,945 Japanese subjects who had undergone annual health checkups were reviewed to identify subjects who met the diagnostic criteria for NAFLD...

Distal radius fractures (DRF) may trigger, reveal or decompensate acute carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in 0.5-21% of cases. Internal fixation and median nerve release must then be carried out urgently. Less invasive approaches have been described for both the median nerve release using an endoscopic device and for the DRF fixation using a volar locking plate. We assessed the feasibility of DRF fixation and median nerve release through a single, minimally-invasive 15mm approach on a series of 10 cases. We reviewed retrospectively 10 consecutive cases of DRF associated with symptomatic CTS in 8 women and 2 men, aged 57 years on average...
