  • This book is a labor of love. As the authors state, it is “a tale of two fathers.” The father of Sylvia Karasu suffered from morbid obesity all of his life, together with other risk factors for coronary heart disease, and lived to the age of 91. The father of Byram Karasu, also morbidly obese, died at the age of 56. This tale of two fathers is in the background of the volume as the authors seek to assess the many factors that contribute to obesity and its control. The Gravity of Weight is a model of scholarly inquiry that describes and analyzes, in a critical manner,...

  • While many studies have focused on estimating a relationship between pollution and health, they have largely neglected to consider that pollution exposure is endogenously determined if individuals make choices to maximize their well-being. People with high preferences for clean air may choose to live in areas with better air quality. People can respond to a wide range of readily available information on pollution levels by adjusting their exposure. Failing to appropriately account for such actions can yield misleading estimates of the causal effect of pollution on health. ...

  • Oates (62) investigated causes of death in women up to one year after giving birth in the UK and came to the conclusion that during the period, 1997-1999, suicide was the leading cause of death - responsible for 10% of all deaths. In 86% of the cases it was possible to make a psychiatric diagnosis, indicating that 68% of women who committed suicide were suffering from a serious mental illness (psychosis or severe depressive illness). Drife (63) observed similar results for the period, 2000-2002. Austin et al.

  • The rationale for the guideline is that whilst growth is documented in a proportion of those receiving renal replacement therapy (published in the UK Renal Registry report) there is scope for improving identification of growth failure in children at an earlier stage. Identification and treatment of nutritional deficiencies and metabolic abnormalities should be aggressively pursued with respect to linear growth. Recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) should be considered if there is growth failure despite the treatment of nutritional deficiencies and metabolic abnormalities 20 .

  • Active follow-up usually means that the registry attempts to contact physi- cians or patients on a regular basis to see if the patient is still alive. Because this is expensive, many registries rely on passive follow-up, matching with death certificates and assuming patients are alive otherwise. Mixed systems use death certificates plus updating the ‘date last known alive’ from hospital admissions, consultations, and other sources of data. Active follow-up of the patients is usually very difficult in developing coun- tries.

  • The second requirement is a clear and well defined starting point. For popu- lation-based cancer registries, the starting date (from which the survival is calculated) is the incidence date (see Section 17.3.1). The third requirement is a clear and well defined outcome. Death is gener- ally the outcome of interest, but some registries collect enough data to allow them to conduct analyses using recurrence of tumour, or first recurrence of a particular complication, as the outcome of interest.

New networks with EHR databases—“virtual research organizations”—add even more to these capacities.

  • Sources of Evidence: Clinical Trials and Registries The notion of learning from observation of patients is as old as medicine itself. Over the last 50 years, our understanding of how best to turn raw observation into useful evidence has evolved considerably. Case reports, personal anecdotal experience, and small single-center case series are now recognized as having severe limitations to validity and have no role in formulating modern standards of practice. The major tools used to develop reliable evidence consist of the randomized clinical trial and the large observational registry.

  • Several studies have compared outcomes for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but most were done before the availability of stenting, which has revolutionized the latter approach. methods We used New York’s cardiac registries to identify 37,212 patients with multivessel disease who underwent CABG and 22,102 patients with multivessel disease who underwent PCI from January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2000.

  • As mentioned in Appendix 2.2, it is recommended that cancer registries use the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) (Percy et al., 1990) to code the topography (site of primary tumour) and morphol- ogy (histological type) of the tumours. The fifth digit in the ICD-O mor- phology codes describes the behaviour of the tumour—benign, borderline, in situ, malignant. The topography of a tumour is the most important data item recorded and provides the main basis of tabulation of registry data....
