We examined the psychometric properties of a Spanish translation of the Body Appreciation Scale-2 (BAS-2) in a community sample of 411 women and 389 men in Almería, Spain. Participants completed the 10-item BAS-2 along with measures of appearance evaluation, body areas satisfaction, self-esteem, life satisfaction, and self-reported body mass index (BMI). Exploratory factor analyses with one split-half subsample revealed that BAS-2 scores had a one-dimensional factor structure in women and men. Confirmatory factor analysis with a second split-half subsample showed the one-dimensional factor structure had acceptable fit and was invariant across sex...

BACKGROUND: Primary hemiarthroplasty is proposed for the treatment of unstable intertrochanteric fractures in elderly patients with the advantages of early mobilization, acceptable functional results, and lower failure rates. The 1-year mortality rates demonstrated high variance in the literature, whereas, the factors related to 1-year mortality were not widely investigated. The main purpose of the present study was to determine predictive factors related to 1-year mortality after primary cemented calcar-replacement bipolar hemiarthroplasty performed for unstable intertrochanteric fracture...

Higher body mass index (BMI) at midlife is associated with greater decreases in cognitive function at older age as well as increased Alzheimer's disease (AD) risk, compared to those with normal BMI. Here, we tested whether BMI at midlife was associated with cortical thinning in brain regions known to be affected in early AD. We examined a large sample (n = 404) of midlife individuals (44-49 years) from the PATH population-based study. Individuals were scanned with magnetic resonance imaging (1.5T) on up to three occasions over eight years...
