William J Klish
It is appropriate that we begin the clinical part of this conference with a discussion of acquired monosaccharide intolerance. This disease is the most severe form of carbohydrate malabsorption and maldigestion that can afflict an infant. The following article describes the pathophysiology of the disease, as well as its treatment, much of which was based on studies done by the Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Baylor College of Medicine. Acquired monosaccharide intolerance has almost disappeared from the United States but remains a problem in the developing world where it is included as part of the diagnosis of environmental enteropathy...

Background: An aging population and a high incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in patients over the age of 80 make it important to understand survival times, hazard ratios and prognostic factors in this group. A better understanding of these factors will help clinicians determine appropriate therapeutic strategies for such patients, including when more aggressive treatment strategies may be preferred to palliative treatment. Methods: A retrospective analysis of 619 CRC patients of ≥80 years of age from 1991-2010 at Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: There is insufficient evidence to guide decisions concerning how long anti-dementia drug (ADD) regimens should be maintained in severe Alzheimer's disease (AD). We investigated whether patients with extremely severe AD who were already receiving donepezil or memantine benefited from continuing treatment. METHODS: In this randomized and rater-blinded trial, 65 AD patients with a Mini-Mental State Examination score from 0 to 5 and a score of 6c or worse on Functional Assessment Staging were randomly assigned to an ADD-continuation group (N = 30) or an ADD-discontinuation group (N = 35)...

A 22-year-old man with spontaneous coronary artery dissection wanted to assess the feasibility of returning to competitive cycling. He was referred to the cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program at Baylor Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital where staff designed a high-intensity, sport-specific training program that simulated the movements and forces associated with his goal activity. The program was symptom limited and enabled the patient to train earlier and at a higher intensity than is typically allowed in conventional CR programs...

A 30-year-old male roughneck worker on an oil rig underwent aortic valve replacement and subsequently enrolled in the Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program. He expressed a strong desire to return to his physically demanding job. Based on his unique job requirements, CR staff designed and implemented comprehensive tests and a 5-week specific physical training program that included 6 exercises simulating his job functions. The selected exercises are not typically prescribed in traditional CR programs but mimicked the muscular strength/endurance required to perform his job...

Population health strategies that improve access to health care and address social determinants of health may reduce the use of costly emergency services. Here we describe a strategy adopted by Baylor Scott & White Health to reduce rising rates of emergency department use and inpatient hospitalizations in an underserved Dallas community that is home to many people with low socioeconomic status. Baylor Scott & White partnered with the Dallas Park and Recreation Department to create a level-three primary care clinic integrating wellness and prevention programs in a city recreational center...

Brodie Pearson, Baylor Fox-Kemper
Data from turbulent numerical simulations of the global ocean demonstrate that the dissipation of kinetic energy obeys a nearly log-normal distribution even at large horizontal scales O(10  km). As the horizontal scales of resolved turbulence are larger than the ocean is deep, the Kolmogorov-Yaglom theory for intermittency in 3D homogeneous, isotropic turbulence cannot apply; instead, the down-scale potential enstrophy cascade of quasigeostrophic turbulence should. Yet, energy dissipation obeys approximate log-normality-robustly across depths, seasons, regions, and subgrid schemes...

Purpose: To compare two calculators for toric intraocular lens (IOL) calculation and to evaluate the prediction of refractive outcome. Methods: Sixty-four eyes of forty-five patients underwent cataract surgery followed by implantation of a toric intraocular lens (Zeiss Torbi 709 M) calculated by a standard industry calculator using front keratometry values. Prediction error, median absolute error, and refractive astigmatism error were evaluated for the standard calculator...

BACKGROUND: Due to rapid expansion of clinical genetic testing, an increasing number of genetic variants of undetermined significance and unclear diagnostic value are being identified in children. Variants found in genes associated with heritable channelopathies, such as long QT syndrome (LQTS), are particularly difficult to interpret given the risk of sudden cardiac death associated with pathologic mutations. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether variants in LQTS-associated genes from whole exome sequencing (WES) represent disease-associated biomarkers or background genetic "noise...

BACKGROUND: The US Military-Baylor Graduate Program in Nutrition (GPN) has a 10% 7-year attrition rate representing wasted military resources. Evidence-based selection criteria for dietetics masters of science (MS) programs do not exist, nor does descriptive information of successful students.

Genetic counselors (GCs) have reported an increase in discussion of insurance-related, or "genesurance," topics during genetic counseling sessions. Despite increasing frequency, there have been no studies examining patient expectations of GCs in these discussions. This study aimed to explore patient expectations of GCs in these discussions, as well as examine factors that may impact expectations. A 38-item survey was administered prior to patients receiving prenatal or cancer genetic counseling at 11 clinic sites across UTHealth, Baylor College of Medicine, and Sanford Health, with 360 responses analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: To describe the phenomenology and prevalence of leg stereotypy syndrome (LSS), characterised chiefly by repetitive, rhythmical, stereotypic leg movement, especially when sitting. METHODS: We sought to characterise LSS in two groups of subjects: (1) general population (GP) group, defined as individuals accompanying patients during their visits to Baylor College of Medicine Parkinson's Disease Center and Movement Disorders Clinic who are not genetically related to the patients; and (2) movement disorders (MD) group, composed of consecutive patients with diagnoses of restless legs syndrome, Parkinson's disease, Tourette syndrome and tardive dyskinesia...
