Cleft lip defects are usually regarded as a single entity, with the assumption that an accompanying cleft palate represents the more severe form. The authors linked data from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway with medical records from two centralized centers to provide a population-based data set. They assessed the distribution of cleft lip only and cleft lip with cleft palate by covariate. Among 1.8 million Norwegian livebirths between 1967 and 1998, there were 1,572 cases of cleft lip with cleft palate and 1,122 cases with cleft lip only. Seventeen percent of those with cleft lip and palate had another defect compared with 9% of those with cleft lip only. For boys, the risk was greater for cleft lip and palate than for cleft lip only (odds ratio = 2.4 vs. 1.8, p , 0.001 for difference). The risk of cleft lip only, but not of cleft lip and palate, was increased for twins (odds ratio = 1.6 vs. 1.1, p = 0.11) and infants whose parents were first cousins (odds ratio = 2.7 vs. 0.7, p = 0.07). ...
Incidence (Cleft Lip Palate). Incidence of the different types of clefts with involvement of the lip in a group of 45 consecutive patients; the distribution corresponds to that of a large population. Most frequent are unilateral cleft lip palate (green = uCLP) and unilateral cleft lip (white = CL), which occur in 2/3 of all cases. Bilateral types of clefts occur in 1/5 of all cases, with bilateral types combined with cleft palate (blue = bCLP) occurring more frequently than bilateral cleft lip alveolus (light blue = bCL*) or bilateral cleft lip (pink = bCL). Every tenth case is one of unilateral cleft lip alveolus (light green = uCL*). Totally, 70 % are clefts with involvement of the lip, and 30 % are isolated cleft palate. ...
ObjectivesAssessment of treatment outcome is the only non-invasive approach to identify the effects of cleft lip and palate repair and modify management accordingly. Here the aim is to assess the outcome of complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (CUCLP) patients using EUROCRAN index and to check whether there are any factors associated with the treatment outcome.Materials and methodsIt is a retrospective cross sectional study. Dental models were collected from archives of two cleft referral centers in Pakistan. Five blinded examiners scored 101 models twice at two week interval. The primary outcome was mean EUROCRAN scores based on dental arch relationships and palatal surface morphology.ResultsA mean(SD) score of 2.72 (0.76) and 2.20 (0.73) was determined based on dental arch relationships and palatal surface morphology, respectively. According to the final logistic regression model, modified Millard technique (cheiloplasty) and Veau-Wardill-Kilners method (palatoplasty) had higher odds of ...
Prior studies have implicated an involvement of the Msxl homeobox gene in cleft palate in mice and its homolog in humans (called MSXI in the HOX7 gene, located on chromosome 4), In this study we present evidence of a sex-dependent association between MSXl and nonsyndromic cleft lip/palate (NSCLP) in the Chilean population. The sample included 73 NSCLP cases, 37 from multiplex families (Mx), 36 from simplex families (Sx), and 87 controls. Polymerase chain reaction amplification of the MSXl intragenic microsatellite (CA)n-sequence shows significant (1 = 0.035) differences in the allele frequencies between NSCLP-Mx males and control males. These differences are mainly due to frequency differences in allele *2 (173 base pairs) among cases (21.9%) and controls (13.2%). When the NSCLP cases are subdivided by sex and positive family history (Mx versus Sx), the Mx males (27.8%) as well as the total NSCLP-Mx cases (25.7%) showed significantly higher frequencies of allele *2, compared to controls (11.4% and 13.2
Objective: To further confirm the association between two IRF6 single nucleotide polymorphisms and nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate in a Chinese population.. Participants: A total of 106 nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate case trios and 129 control trios.. Intervention: Two IRF6 single nucleotide polymorphisms, rs2235371 and rs642961, were genotyped for all case and control families. Case-control analysis and family-based linkage analysis were both performed for the two single nucleotide polymorphisms.. Results: The genotype and allele frequencies of rs2235371 (odds ratio(AG+AA) (vs. GG), 0.581; 95% confidence interval, 0.345 to 0.976; P < .039) and rs642961 (odds ratio(AG+AA vs. GG), 5.389; 95% confidence interval, 2.936 to 9.893; P = 5e-08) were significantly higher in nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate patients compared with controls. There was an obvious dosage effect of allele A at rs642961. The transmission of a major allele (G) of ...
There are many variations of a cleft lip. Cleft lips may occur unilaterally or bilaterally. A unilateral cleft lip presents with only one cleft, either complete or incomplete. As with a cleft palate, a cleft lip may also be incomplete or complete. The bilateral cleft lip may also be further divided into Binderoid bilateral complete cleft lip and palate, Bilateral complete cleft lip and intact secondary palate, Bilateral incomplete cleft lip and Asymmetrical bilateral (complete/incomplete) cleft lip [6] One in four bilateral cleft lips are asymmetrical. They are incomplete on one side and complete on the other. The incomplete side of the bilateral cleft lip varies in severity and the level of severity impacts on the treatment. These lesser forms of incomplete bilateral cleft lips can be divided into micro-form, microform, and mini-microform depending on the degree of the disruption at the vermilion-cutaneous junction [6] ...
7. DISCUSSION Joseph Daw and Pravin Katel [11] observed that historically, the management of alveolar clefts has lagged behind the surgical correction of cleft lip and palate in terms of appreciating its significance and in the evolution of surgical techniques. This apparent lack of cognizance reflects in our environment where many adult patients live with alveolar cleft deformity despite having had their cleft lips and palates repaired. Even from some more surgically developed environments where alveolar bone grafting is already a common place, very few reports on the outcome of adult alveolar bone grafting emanate. This article reports the early outcome of tertiary alveolar bone grafting in our center and the rationale for our techniques.. The choice of iliac crest as a cancellous bone resource for alveolar bone grafting is well supported in the literature [1,4,12-14]. It has easy access, ...

The CDH1 gene plays an important role during carcinogenesis and craniofacial morphogenesis. Germline mutations in this gene have been described in families presenting syndromic diffuse gastric cancer
Van der Woude syndrome (VDWS) is a genetic disorder characterized by the combination of lower lip pits, cleft lip with or without cleft palate, and cleft palate alone (CP). The frequency of orofacial clefts ranges from 1:1000 to 1:500 births worldwide, and there are more than 400 syndromes that involve cleft lip with or without cleft palate. VWS is distinct from other clefting syndromes due to the combination of cleft lip and palate (CLP) and CP within the same family. Other features frequently associated with VWS include hypodontia in 10-81% of cases, narrow arched palate, congenital heart disease, heart murmur and cerebral abnormalities, syndactyly of the hands, polythelia, ankyloglossia, and adhesions between the upper and lower gum pads. The association between lower lip pits and cleft lip and/or palate was first described by Anne Van der Woude in 1954. The worldwide disease incidence ranges from 1:100,000 to 1:40,000. Van der Woude syndrome is inherited as an autosomal dominant disease ...
Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is the most common syndromic form of cleft lip and palate. It is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by pits and/or sinuses of the lower lip, cleft lip, cleft palate and uvular anomalies. Other findings may include ankyloglossia and hypodontia. VWS1 (MIM 119300) and VWS2 (MIM 606713) are caused by mutations in the IRF6 and GRHL3 genes, respectively. IRF6 codes for interferon regulatory factor 6 and GRHL3 codes for grainyhead-like protein 3 homolog.. The Van der Woude syndrome NGS panel consists of two genes: GRHL3 and IRF6.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the Van der Woude syndrome genes is also offered as a panel. Additionally, CTGT offers a comprehensive test (both NGS and CNV panels) for these genes. Panel genes are also offered as individual sequencing and deletion/duplication tests, unless otherwise indicated.. Read less ...
... is a condition that affects the development of the face. Many people with this disorder are born with a cleft lip and/or a cleft palate. Affected individuals usually have depressions (pits) near the center of the lower lip, which may appear moist due to the presence of salivary and mucous glands in the pits. Small mounds of tissue on the lower lip may also occur. In some cases, people with van der Woude syndrome have missing teeth. Some People with van der Woude syndrome may experience delayed language development, learning disabilities, or other mild cognitive problems. This condition is caused by mutations in the IRF6 gene and is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion ...

Cleft lip and cleft palate, also known as orofacial cleft, is a group of conditions that includes cleft lip (CL), cleft palate (CP), and both together (CLP). A cleft lip contains an opening in the upper lip that may extend into the nose. The opening may be on one side, both sides, or in the middle. A cleft palate is when the roof of the mouth contains an opening into the nose. These disorders can result in feeding problems, speech problems, hearing problems, and frequent ear infections. Less than half the time the condition is associated with other disorders. Cleft lip and palate are the result of tissues of the face not joining properly during development. As such, they are a type of birth defect. The cause is unknown in most cases. Risk factors include smoking during pregnancy, diabetes, obesity, an older mother, and certain medications (such as some used to treat seizures). Cleft lip and cleft palate can often be diagnosed during pregnancy with an ultrasound exam. A cleft lip or palate can be ...
Introduction: Correction of Cleft lip nose deformity is a difficult challenge for cleft surgeons. Though, Primary repair of cleft lip nose deformity has been accepted worldwide, there are many variations amongst surgeons involved in cleft care. To demystifying the controversy of primary correction of cleft lip nose repair, we have done an internet based survey to define consensus among surgeons. Methodology: A 15 items questionnaire was framed and sent to the all plastic surgeons of India as well as oral & maxillofacial surgeons, Head & neck, ENT & Pediatric surgeons of the country involved in cleft lip surgery. The questionnaire was categorised in the form of repairing the nose deformity with cleft lip, approach to address such deformity, secondary complications & residual deformity present and satisfactory outcome in order to make a common consensus among surgeons involved in cleft surgery. Results: Of total respondents, 91.8% were plastic surgeons and 9.3 % Oral & maxillofacial surgeons. ...
Genetic variations in the detoxification enzyme glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) may modify the teratogenicity of lifestyles, such as smoking. We investigated the role of the I105V polymorphism in GSTP1, parental periconception smoking, and their interaction with nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) risk in the offspring. The GSTP1 I105V polymorphisms were determined in Dutch non-consanguineous Caucasians comprising of 155 CL/P triads (mother, father, child) and 195 control triads. The analyses were also carried out on complete triads only (n=69 CL/P and n=95 controls). Transmission disequilibrium testing and logistic regression analyses were performed. Neither maternal nor paternal smoking increased CL/P risk; odds ratios (OR): 1.2, 95 confidence intervals (CI)=0.7-2.0 and OR: 1.0, 95% CI=0.6-1.6, respectively. Carriership of the polymorphic Val105 allele in mothers may increase CL/P risk, OR: 1.5, 95% CI=0.96-2.5. Children homozygous for the Val105 allele may show an ...
Across the world, cleft palate, cleft lip or both is a condition that affects one in every 700 babies. Considered as one of the most common defects children suffer from at birth, the condition often requires special care from various health professionals due to the challenging medical, dental, surgical, and even social factors that are involved in the treatment process.. Understanding cleft lip and cleft palate. Cleft palate and cleft lip require surgery for treatment. In most cases, a child with a cleft palate will have a cleft lip too. A cleft lip occurs when the tissues of the nose and the upper jaw fail to join together during fetal development. As a result, a split in the lip occurs. Generally, cleft lips do not cause health issues.. On the other hand, cleft palate happened when the palate or the roof of the mouth fails to develop properly during pregnancy. As a result, an opening is left that could go through as far as the nasal cavity. The problem could affect the hard palate or even the ...
Cleft lip or palate and lower lip pits are typical features of the autosomal dominantly inherited Van der Woude syndrome. Limb defects have not been reported in this syndrome so far. A girl with a unilateral complete cleft lip and palate, bilateral lower lip pits, and amniotic deformities of all four limbs is reported and the possibility of chance occurrence of cleft lip and palate, lower lip pits, and limb defects is discussed.. ...
The habit of inserting foreign objects into body cavities is seen in children and in adults with intellectual disability. Usually, the foreign objects cause chronic inflammation and local tissue destruction, which give rise to symptoms. Diagnosis at an asymptomatic stage is uncommon when the history is not suggestive. We describe a rare case where a foreign object was misdiagnosed as an odontoma in a patient with an alveolar cleft. A radiopaque round mass was noted on the radiograph of a 12-year-old Sinhalese boy who was awaiting an alveolar bone graft. Apart from problems related to the alveolar cleft and mild halitosis, he was otherwise healthy. This was suspected to be an odontoma in the cleft region. During alveolar bone graft surgery, a button battery was recovered that was later confirmed as having been self-inserted by the child. Alveolar bone graft surgery was delayed because of local chronic inflammation due to the foreign object. Three months ...
The Doctors Medical Library. Health and Healing Information. Physician, Health care help, A cleft lip is the presence of one or two vertical fissures (clefts) in the upper lip. The cleft lip can be on one side only (unilateral) or on both sides (bilateral). The condition results from failure of the normal process of fusion of the lip to come to completion during embryonic life. Cleft lip is one of the most common physical birth defects. On the average, one baby per 1,000 is born with a cleft lip. Cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth (the palate) due to a failure of the palatal shelves to come fully together from either side of the mouth and fuse, as they normally should, during embryonic development. The opening in the palate permits communication between the nasal passages and the mouth. Surgery is needed to close the palate. Cleft palate is a common physical birth defects, although not as common as cleft lip. About one baby in 2,000 is born with cleft palate versus one baby in 1

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, Calif) is widely used for facial rejuvenation and many other medical indications. It induces chemodenervation through its action on the presynaptic neuron, preventing release of acetylcholine, which leads to functional denervation of striated muscle for 2 to 6 months after injection. The use of botulinum toxin injection to reduce the facial scar is logical because this could reduce the tensile distracting force of the upper lip caused by the orbicularis oris muscle pull. Tollefson has demonstrate that botulinum toxin injection has decrease lip tension after primary lip repair in 3 children at 3-6 months of age The main aim of this randomized trial is to compare whether post-operative peri-surgical-injection of botulinum toxin into bilateral orbicularis oris muscles can improve scar formation for both primary and secondary cleft lip surgery ...

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common congenital anomalies. They may occur alone, as part of a syndrome (there are more than 300 syndromes associated with facial clefting), or as a component of a sequence (for example, with Pierre Robin syndrome). Clefts of the palate may occur through the same mechanisms as cleft lip or be secondary to an anatomic obstruction preventing the medial fusion of the maxillary processes. ...
We describe an infant with popliteal pterygia, syngnathia, cleft lip and palate, and retrognathia diagnosed with popliteal pterygium syndrome (PPS). The neonatal course was complicated by severe obstructive apnea necessitating tracheostomy. Conclusion: This report illustrates the potential for airway compromise in PPS patients and the need for thorough neonatal airway assessment.
While the final results from any facial plastic surgery procedure are worth the short recovery period, many patients who are planning treatment such as a brow or eyelid lift, or a full facelift, experience a bit of "stage fright" at the prospect of swelling. This post is dedicated to the management of the natural after-effects of surgery. In fact, some of the tips provided here can benefit patients undergoing non-surgical treatments such as laser skin resurfacing or injectables. Swelling is swelling and, however short-lived it may be, we know youd like to avoid it.. If you are planning a surgical facial procedure, expect for swelling to subside over a 4- to 6-week period. During this initial time of recovery, approximately 80% reduction in swelling occurs. After that, the remaining 20% resolves a bit more slowly. However, that small amount of residual swelling is typically not even noticeable.. Minimize your Swelling Risk with:. ...

UCF Assistant Professor John Starbuck thought studying anthropology might lead him to a career in a museum, but its done more than he couldve imagined. His work is changing the lives of people with cleft lip with or without cleft palate, and his current research holds promise for helping some people with Down syndrome.. Growing up, Starbuck wasnt interested in college. His mother worked minimum-wage jobs and his father wasnt around. But school opened a door for him, allowing a glance at what the future could look like.. "I bought into the idea that an undergraduate education could take me somewhere different and ran with it," Starbuck said. "I worked in a lot of restaurants in high school, and it was easy to see that those paths have limited opportunities.". Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis offered him a spot at their campus through the McNair Scholars program and his higher education career took off.. While some may say anthropology is a career without modern ...
The State of Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic was assumed by Southcentral Foundation in October 2016. While the staffing of the clinic stays continuous, there have been improvements which include an increased number of clinics, additional hours for clinics, and more comprehensive evaluations that allow providers to get to know each child individually.. A new website was developed and contains information not only on the condition, but also specific pages geared toward parents and providers, along with a team bio page. In the future, the dental department hopes to provide additional resources for out-of-town guests to help make travel easier.. The clinic is open to all Alaska residents, and the team is composed of members from SCF, ANTHC, and the community. One of the leading members is Dr. Daniel Suver, a craniofacial plastic surgeon who comes with a remarkable educational and practical background. An Alaska resident since 2012, Dr. Suver has a particular interest in pediatric plastic surgery, ...
Background Cleft lip and palate repair requires a deep and small surgical field and is usually performed by surgeons wearing surgical loupes. Surgeons with loupes can obtain a wider surgical view, although headlights are required for the deepest procedures. Surgical microscopes offer comfort and a clear and magnification-adjustable surgical site that can be shared with the whole team, including observers, and easily recorded to further the education of junior surgeons. Magnification adjustments are convenient for precise procedures such as muscle dissection of the soft palate. Methods We performed a comparative investigation of 18 cleft operations that utilized either surgical loupes or microscopy. Paper-based questionnaires were completed by staff nurses to evaluate what went well and what could be improved in each procedure. The operating time, complication rate, and scores of the questionnaire responses were statistically analyzed. Results The operating time when microscopy was used was not

Symmetry is considered an attractive facial characteristic, though it is very rare as most humans have some degree of asymmetry. Though most cases are subtle enough to go undetected, more severe cases of asymmetry can result in marked facial deformity. It has been found that facial asymmetry presents as a comorbid condition with other severe malocclusions. While many causes of facial asymmetry have been thoroughly investigated, such as cleft lip/palate, unilateral craniosynostosis and hemifacial microsomia, the genetic cause of asymmetries associated with dentofacial malocclusions has yet to be investigated. Studies have shown that muscle strength, size, and fiber type can influence bone size and density. The masseter muscle is frequently involved in development of sagittal malocclusion, and left/right fiber-type differences have been previously found in subjects with facial asymmetry. Still, the contribution of muscle function to the development of facial asymmetry is unclear. Symmetry is a ...
The latter two groups commonly present with abdominal pain, weakness, rectal bleeding, diarrhea, or rectal prolapse. Laboratory findings include anemia, hypoalbuminemia, hypokalemia, and skin test anergy. Juvenile polyposis is a premalignant condition with changes seen in children as young as 3 years of age. Patients with generalized involvement require surgical intervention. Subtotal colectomy and ileoproctostomy are the procedures of choice. Patients with a small number of polyps may choose instead to undergo periodic colonoscopy with colonoscopic polypectomy. Approximately 10 to 20% of affected patients have extracolonic abnormalities. These include finger clubbing and hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy related to pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas. Congenital cardiac defects, macrocephaly, cleft lip/palate, extra teeth, arteriovenous malformations of the skin, gut malrotation, psoriasis, and genitourinary abnormalities have been described. ...

In contrast to the results of an initial study, the epilepsy drug lamotrigine may not increase the risk of birth defects. According to the new study - published in the journal, Neurology - pregnant women taking the drug to manage their epilepsy, did not put their children at an increased risk of being born with a cleft lip, cleft palate or clubfoot.. Lamotrigine is an anticonvulsant medication used alone, or in combination with other drugs, to control seizures in epileptic patients. The drug is also prescribed as a mood stabilizer for patients with bipolar disorder.. Maintaining epilepsy disease management during pregnancy is important, as seizures could have a negative effect on the growing fetus. Its also important however, for pregnant women to assess the medication theyre taking to determine whether it could pose a risk to the health of the baby.. "An initial study of this drug showed an increased risk for cleft lip or cleft palate, but a number of other studies since have not, and a ...
Augmentation of the upper lip is one of the most commonly done non-surgical facial enhancement procedures. This can usually be successfully done through the use of a variety of different hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers. Despite their popularity and frequency of use, however, injectable fillers can not solve all aesthetic upper lip concerns. A thin upper lip with little vermilion height often does not respond well to volume addition alone and is prone to result in the dreaded duck lip look where most of the filler volume comes horizontally forward rather than increasing vertical vermilion height.. Surgical lip augmentation offers a better result in the thin upper lip because it can alter the location of the vermilion-cutaneous junction…the one anatomic feature by which lip size and shape is mainly judged. This can be done by an upper lip procedure known as a subnasal lip lift or a lower upper lip procedure known as a vermilion advancement. While very close by location the effects ...

Treatment depends on the type cleft palate the patient has, and how severe it is. Many children that encounter this problem can have teams that will adhere to jaw correction until the youth is 10 or 12 years old, but the most effective surgery takes place within the first 10 weeks of age. One very common procedure is the Millard Procedure, that was first performed at a mobile army surgical hospital MASH unit in Korea.. In order to complete a cleft lip surgery, the surgeon makes their best attempt to line up the scar with its natural lines that are present in the upper lip, and tuck away stitches as far up the nose as possible. The Latham appliance surgically inserted by use of pins during early infancy months in the child, and a screw is turned every day to slowly attempt to bring the cleft together. During some procedures that help greatly with cleft palate, there is a tympanostomy tube inserted into the eardrum to clear the middle ear. The good news is that many of the top pediatric hospitals ...

Dr. Balaji performed the alveolar cleft repair using rhBMP-2 avoiding bone grafting. Miracle protein rhBMP-2 is a bioengineered version of a protein that occurs in the body. When placed in the cleft defect, it stimulates the bodys stem cells to form new bone and thereby healing the bony defect in the teeth bearing region of the upper jaw. By using rhBMP-2, bone graft surgery from the hip or rib is avoided, thereby avoiding an additional surgery & unsightly scars. ...

Reasons for bone grafts. Bone grafting is a highly successful procedure in most cases. It is also a preferable alternative to having missing teeth, diseased teeth, or tooth deformities. Bone grafting can increase the height or width of the jawbone and fill in voids and defects in the bone.. There are essentially two basic ways in which bone grafting can positively impact the health and stability of the teeth:. Jaw Stabilization - Bone grafting stabilizes and helps restore the jaw foundation for restorative or implant surgery. Deformities can also be corrected and the restructuring of the bone can provide added support.. Preservation - Bone grafting can be used to limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction, periodontal disease, or other invasive processes.. Oral Examination.

There are many types of dental anomalies seen in cleft lip and palate (CLP) patients. Both sets of dentition may be affected however they are commonly seen in the affected side. Most frequently, missing teeth, supernumerary or discoloured teeth can be seen however enamel dysplasia, discolouration and delayed root development is also common. In children with cleft lip and palate, the lateral incisor in the alveolar cleft region has the highest prevalence of dental developmental disorders.[73] This is important to consider in order to correctly plan treatment keeping in mind considerations for function and aesthetics. By correctly coordinating management invasive treatment procedures can be prevented resulting in successful and conservative treatment. There have been a plethora of research studies to calculate prevalence of certain dental anomalies in CLP populations however a variety of results have been obtained. In a study evaluating dental anomalies in Brazilian cleft patients, male patients ...
Twenty-years ago, children born with cleft lip and/or palate were treated in 57 centres in the UK. A Clinical Standards Advisory Group (CSAG) survey conducted in the mid-1990s of five-year-olds showed outcomes across a range of domains, including facial growth and speech, were poor. This led to services across the UK being centralised. Since then, care for children with cleft lip and/or palate is provided by multi-disciplinary teams working in 11 managed clinical networks.. The NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research-funded study, known as Cleft Care UK, carried out a repeat nationwide cross-sectional survey of five-year-olds 15-years later to evaluate the impact of this centralised, audited multi-disciplinary care model. The researchers collected comprehensive data on care and outcomes from 268 children with unilateral cleft lip and palate.. Key findings from the study include:. ...
The present prospective study aimed at assessing cleft lip and palate patients opinions on and the attitude towards their facial appearance, and their tendency to opt for secondary corrective facial surgery. Based on the identification of patients who were eligible for the study clinical data on these persons were collected and a questionnaire was sent out to compile the relevant data. Although a response rate of 23 of 37 invited patients may seem low, it is exactly within the range that can be expected from the current literature. Response rates of approx. 58% to questionnaires received by surface mail have to be expected [18]. The comparison between the patients who were eligible for the study and the patients who finally returned the questionnaire revealed that there were no statistically significant differences between the 2 cohorts. Consequently, it can be assumed that the results were not biased in a pronounced way by the portion of non-responders. It can be assumed that the bias ...

Eating out--It gets expensive! It should NOT be an everyday thing unless of course you are made of money and dont have a kitchen.

If you need to feed more than that or want to get an appetizer the price only goes up! Fast food restaurants are cheaper, but you pay the price with your health and waistline. Keep some easy frozen food or quick dinners on hand for those evenings when you are too worn out to cook, and save a night out for something special. I do however keep the local restaurant coupons from the mail so that when we do decide to go out, I have a nice variety of free meals/appetizers to choose from!

Ohlsson and colleagues analyzed baseline levels of testosterone in 2416 men aged 69 to 81 years who were participating in the prospective, population-based Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study (MrOS). They also measured SHBG and obtained cardiovascular clinical outcomes from central Swedish registries.. Over a median of five years of follow-up, there were 485 fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, and both total testosterone and SHBG levels were inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular events (trend over quartiles p=0.009 and p=0.012, respectively).. Tivesten said initially they used quartile 1 (ie, the lowest levels of serum testosterone) as a reference and compared events in this group with those in quartiles 2, 3, and 4. However, they saw no significant difference in the number of cardiovascular events between the first three quartiles.. But men in the highest quartile of testosterone (,550 ng/dL) had a lower risk of cardiovascular events compared with men in the lower three ...
