LAP-BAND SURGERY STATISTICS – Day One Health #lap #band #surgery #statistics

LAP-BAND SURGERY STATISTICS

Lap-band surgery has been performed in Europe for over 10 years before being approved for use in theU.S.in 2001. Until now, it is estimated that over 300,000 gastric band surgeries were performed worldwide. Over a decade of experience in the U.S. alone has shown that lap-band is an effective tool in fighting excess weight and that it has been more successful than traditional methods in achieving long-term weight loss.

LAP-BAND COMPLICATIONS

According to the study performed with the use of database developed as a part of the accreditation program instituted by the AmericanCollege of Surgeons Bariatric Surgery Center Network (ACS-BSCN), out of 28,616 patients only 6% developed complications following the lap-band surgery. Majority of the complications constituted pouch enlargement (stretching of the stomach) and the band slippage, and were addressed with the band repositioning.

Another study performed by Dr. Franco Favretti and Gianni Segato looked at 1,791 patients who underwent the lap-band procedure within the period on 12 years. The analysis showed the total complication rate of 5% out of which band slippage and pouch stretching constituted 3.9% of the cases. The erosion cases constituted 0.9% of the sample. No cases of mortality were recorded. The study by Paul E. O Brien and John B. Dixon showed mortality of 1 out of 2,000 patients. This rate is approximately 10% lower than the mortality rate indicated for the gastric bypass surgery.

Belgian study published in 2011 indicated complication rates for lap-band to be significantly higher – especially for instances of band erosion – than any other study. The researchers were claiming that the approximately 40% of patients experienced serious complications (39% band erosions) and another 22% suffered minor complications such as pouch enlargement. Nevertheless, study analyzed patients who underwent the surgery between the 1994 and 1997, and followed only half of the original sample. In other words, out of the whole sample of 151 patients, the researchers followed up only on 84 patients. In addition, bands and urgical methods observed in the study were substantially different from the bands currently used.

In over a decade of experience at DayOne Health, we observed the complication rate no higher than 4%. The most common complications we ve seen at our practice are a stretched pouch and a band slippage. At DayOne Health, we have not seen yet any band erosions.

LAP-BAND WEIGHT LOSS

According to the study done by Dr. Favretti and Dr. Segato the average weight loss achieved by patients was 58lbs or 38.5 ± 27.9% loss in excess weight. Other studies report 40% excess weight lost within the first year followed with additional 10% to 20% in the second. The study by O Brien and Dixonindicates weight loss of 56% of excess weight in three years after the procedure. In comparison, the average weight loss for the same time period for gastric bypass was 59%. In other words, lap-band is as effective in achieving long-term weight loss as gastric bypass. As a side note, the surgeons who performed over 100 lap-band surgeries achieved better weight loss results than the less experienced ones.

Lap-band weight loss results and closely connected with the frequency and length of a follow up care. The study performed by Jonathan A. Myers, M.D. Sharfi Sarker, M.D. and Vafa Shayani, M.D. showed that patients with higher BMI ( 60) took longer to achieve the same weight loss results than lower BMI patients and required longer follow up period. In the study performed by Evan Valle, Minh B. Luu, Khristi Autajay, Amanda B. Francescatti, Louis F. Fogg, Jonathan A. Myers, that there is a strong positive relationship between a higher number of lap-band adjustments and percent of excess weight lost. The study also indicated that patients operated and followed up on at the surgical facility achieved greater weight loss results from patients at the hospital. The difference was ascribed to the fact that patients seen at the surgery center had easier access to the frequent follow up

Tobacco Initiatives

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the U.S. killing close to half a million people each year. The American Lung Association is committed to ending the death and disease caused by tobacco use. Our tobacco control policy efforts include advocating for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversight over tobacco products, coverage of tobacco cessation treatments under health insurance plans, smokefree workplace laws, increased tobacco taxes and other legislative measures and community programs that are crucial to reducing tobacco use and eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke.

Oversight and Regulation of Tobacco Products

The Lung Association worked for more than 20 years to see the Tobacco Control Act passed, which gives the FDA the authority to regulate cigarettes and tobacco products. We are working today to see that this law is effectively enforced, reducing the terrible burden caused by tobacco use.

Cigarette & Tobacco Taxes

We strongly support efforts on the national, state and local levels to increase taxes on cigarettes and tobacco products. Find out why.

Tobacco Cessation & Prevention

Governments, insurance companies and employers must establish tobacco cessation and prevention programs to help smokers quit and prevent kids from starting. Our tools and resources can help.

Smokefree Environments

Our goal is for every community to be smokefree. See how we are expanding smokefree communities from public places and workplaces to housing and schools find a tobacco-free university and get information on creating a smokefree workplace.

Reports & Resources

Read our reports on tobacco control policy, including the annual State of Tobacco Control report, and find more information about major tobacco control issues.

Table Monitoring and Statistics #oracle, #statistics, #table #monitoring, #tuning

Table Monitoring and Statistics

Table monitoring is by default activated if STATISTICS_LEVEL system parameter is set to TYPICAL (or ALL ).

Oracle keeps table monitoring data in memory, then flush it into the dictionary when DBMS_STATS. FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO is called. These datas are mainly used to determine if objects need new statistics.

Quote from Oracle

Table monitoring

Monitoring tracks the approximate number of INSERTs, UPDATEs, and DELETEs for that table and whether the table has been truncated since the last time statistics were gathered. You can access information about changes of tables in the USER_TAB_MODIFICATIONS view. Following a data-modification, there may be a few minutes delay while Oracle Database propagates the information to this view. Use the DBMS_STATS. FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO procedure to immediately reflect the outstanding monitored information kept in the memory. The GATHER_DATABASE_STATS or GATHER_SCHEMA_STATS procedures gather new statistics for tables with stale statistics when the OPTIONS parameter is set to GATHER STALE or GATHER AUTO. If a monitored table has been modified more than STALE_PERCENT (default 10%), then these statistics are considered stale and gathered again.

FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO procedure

This procedure flushes in-memory monitoring information for all tables in the dictionary. Corresponding entries in the *_TAB_MODIFICATIONS. *_TAB_STATISTICS and *_IND_STATISTICS views are updated immediately, without waiting for the Oracle database to flush them periodically. This procedure is useful when you need up-to-date information in those views. Because the GATHER_*_STATS procedures internally flush monitoring information, it is not necessary to run this procedure before gathering the statistics.

Usage note
The ANALYZE_ANY system privilege is required to run this procedure. Without this privilege, this procedure can still be executed with an alternative explain below in this article.

Check table monitoring info

Let’s see how it works :

FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO alternative

If you don’t have the privilege to execute FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO. you can implicitly excute this procedure with GATHER_*_STATS if you run it on a least one table which the folowing contition:

  • Partitioned table
  • INCREMENTAL preference parameter to TRUE
  • PUBLISH preference parameter to TRUE
  • Gather statistique with GRANULARITY= ‘AUTO’ and ESTIMATE_PERCENT= DBMS_STATS.AUTO_SAMPLE_SIZE

Therefore we can create a dummy table in order to implicitly call DBMS_STATS. FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO as follow.

Here we go, we can now call DBMS_STATS. FLUSH_DATABASE_MONITORING_INFO through GATHER_TABLE_STATS without needing ANALYSE_ANY system privilege.

Medical Malpractice: What You Need to Prove #medical #malpractice #statistics

Medical Malpractice: What You Need to Prove

If you’re considering filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, one of your first questions is likely, “What will I need to prove?” A legal claim for medical malpractice usually comes down to establishing that your doctor or another health care professional was negligent in providing medical care or treatment to you, and that you suffered some kind of harm as a result. In this article, we’ll walk through the steps of what you need to prove in a successful medical malpractice case.

Existence of a Doctor-Patient Relationship

First, you’ll need to show the existence of a doctor-patient relationship, which (in the eyes of the law) gives rise to the doctor’s duty to provide you with competent care based on the circumstances. In general, this is not a difficult element to prove in a malpractice case. If the doctor agreed to provide some type of diagnosis or treatment to you — or if the care was actually provided absent any specific agreement — then the doctor-patient relationship existed. This element of a medical malpractice case usually goes unchallenged .

Proof of the Doctor’s Sub-Standard (Negligent) Care

The issue here is generally whether, in providing treatment to you, the doctor acted with the skill and care that a similarly-trained health care professional would have demonstrated under the circumstances. In legalese, this is known as the medical standard of care, and it’s a crucial element in any medical malpractice case.

In establishing the medical standard of care — what your doctor should have done — your doctor will be compared with similar professionals in similar circumstances, taking into consideration factors like the community or type of community in which the defendant practices.

In most cases, it will be necessary for expert witnesses (doctors or other health care professionals) to testify about what a competent and reasonably skilled doctor would have done in the same situation. In fact, both the plaintiff and the defendant’s sides often present expert testimony regarding whether the doctor provided competent care based on accepted standards of medical practice. Clinical practice guidelines published by medical professional groups are sometimes also used as evidence of the standard of care in a particular situation.

Next, the expert witness will apply the medical standard of care to your case and methodically show how your doctor failed to provide care that measured up to that legal yardstick. This means presenting detailed testimony as to what your doctor should have done and contrasting it with what was actually done, to paint a clear picture of the doctor’s liability for medical negligence.

Link Between Doctor’s Negligence and Patient’s Injury

It’s not enough to show that your doctor made the kind of mistakes that most doctors wouldn’t have made. You’ll also need to show that the doctor’s actions (or failure to act) caused your health condition to become worse, or resulted in you suffering some additional injury or harm. The trick here is making it clear that your injuries aren’t attributable to an underlying medical condition or some other cause, but to the sub-standard care you received from your doctor. Plaintiffs often use expert testimony to help establish this element of a medical malpractice case (in addition to using an expert to show sub-standard care, as discussed above).

Quantifiable Proof of Patient’s Harm (Damages)

Finally, you must provide details of the actual harm you suffered (this is called “damages” in legalese). In a medical malpractice case, damages might include the cost of additional medical treatment, and income that the plaintiff has lost or will lose by being unable to work. In addition, a medical malpractice plaintiff can usually recover damages for pain and suffering — both physical and mental — that the plaintiff has endured because of the sub-standard medical care.

Proof “By a Preponderance of the Evidence”

A patient who has been injured by medical malpractice (the “plaintiff”) must show the elements listed above “by a preponderance of the evidence,” which means that they are each more likely than not to be true. This is an easier legal standard to meet than what’s necessary in other types of cases — in criminal court the standard is proof “beyond a reasonable doubt,” for example.

But medical malpractice claimants have some unique legal hurdles to get over, including getting the case past a malpractice review board and filing a certificate of merit in some cases, depending on where you’re filing the claim. Since medical malpractice laws differ from state to state, and even the most seemingly straightforward case will likely involve complex medical issues, one of the first things you may want to do is contact an experienced lawyer to discuss whether you have a viable medical malpractice claim.

Get the compensation you deserve.
