When the upper chambers of a person's heart receive irregular electrical signals it causes abnormal rhythm in the heart beat. This is called atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation increases the chance of having a heart attack or stroke. Some patients also get new heart valves using a catheter. Often doctors give patients a medicine called a vitamin K antagonist (VKA), because it is considered the standard care. This study will see how edoxaban compares to VKA in patients who got a new heart valve by using a catheter. The study will compare the two drugs for up to three years after heart valve replacement, looking at the drug's overall side effects (called adverse events) and major bleeding.

Dual Energy CT as a Noninvasive Method to Screen for Gastroesophageal Varices
University of Alabama at Birmingham Gastroesophageal Varices

Cirrhosis leads to portal hypertension and development of gastroesophageal varices, which are the most common cause for bleeding in cirrhosis and a major cause of death. The American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) recommends screening endoscopy every 2 years to evaluate for gastroesophageal varices, and annual surveillance for those with small varices on endoscopy. Unfortunately, endoscopy is costly, requires sedation, is poorly tolerated, is subject to high inter-observer variability, and is associated with risks that include bleeding, esophageal injury and aspiration. Noninvasive methods for evaluation of gastroesophageal varices are needed. CT is noninvasive, rapid, less expensive than endoscopy, requires no sedation, provides a quantitative measure of the size of the varices, and allows for assessment of para-esophageal varices, varices in other body locations, ascites, other signs of portal hypertension, patency of liver vasculature, and detection, diagnosis and staging of hepatocellular carcinoma. Single-Energy CT (SECT) has relatively high accuracy in prospective studies for detection of any and large varices but is associated with suboptimal contrast opacification of gastroesophageal varices. Dual-Energy CT with the GE scanners with GSI Xtream (DECT) improves the contrast-to-noise ratio by 60% compared to SECT and is currently standard of care at UAB for evaluation of cirrhosis. The primary objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of DECT for detecting any varices and high-risk varices. The study hypothesis is that the accuracy (AUROC) of DECT will be >0.90 and >0.95 for detecting any and high-risk varices in a prospective pilot study (N=50) that uses endoscopy as the reference standard. This will be a single-center pilot observational prospective IRB-approved study. A total of 50 adult patients presenting to UAB Endoscopy for surveillance endoscopy to detect and grade gastroesophageal varices will be enrolled.

The Prevention of Lower Urinary Symptoms (PLUS) Research Consortium is working to optimize prevention of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in women and adolescent females across their life spans. The ability to measure bladder health and key risk and protective factors is crucial to the PLUS mission. To describe and measure the spectrum of bladder health in diverse populations, researchers need a valid and reliable instrument. To date, the Consortium's work on design of a bladder health instrument has been a culmination of expert opinion, information from focus groups, and incorporation of previously validated items and language where appropriate, along with cognitive interviews of participants from the general public. The next step in the consortium's work is to prospectively collect data to test and validate bladder health instrument (BHI) items for inclusion in a final bladder health scale (BHS) that can assess the full range of bladder health of women. This will be through a combination of general population recruitment for completing mailed surveys and clinical population recruitment for completing surveys and an in-person evaluation.

For millennia, people have listened to and enjoyed music for entertainment, as a distraction from daily troubles, and as a means to relax and relieve stress. It is no real surprise that the relaxing and stress-relieving effects of music have been shown in patients having surgery. For patients having surgery with spinal anesthesia, music therapy during the operation decreases sedation requirements, anxiety and may improve patient satisfaction. Music therapy during surgery may also lead to a decreased stress response, as evidenced by more stable cortisol levels. Studies done previously have included patients undergoing various surgical procedures, however no studies have been done specifically for patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty. Because total knee arthroplasty is a common procedure usually done under spinal anesthesia at our institution, we would like to study the effects music therapy could have on our patient population.

Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) are the most common complication following thoracic surgery. PPCs are associated with prolonged hospital stay, increased morbidity, mortality, ICU admission, and healthcare costs (Azhar, 2015). Current preoperative optimization in this patient group includes smoking cessation and management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease with inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled steroids as indicated. There have been studies using preoperative incentive spirometry in patients undergoing laparotomy with conflicting results, but scant data on its use in patients undergoing one-lung ventilation (Tyson, et al., 2015; Cattano, et al., 2010). A study from 2013 investigated the effectiveness of incentive spirometry in patients following thoracotomy and found conflicting results, without significant improvement in lung function or reduction in PPCs, but a larger difference in frequency of PPC was noted, indicating possible benefit to intervention and a need for further study (Agostini, et al., 2013). Volume-based incentive spirometry pre- and postoperatively has also been found to improve pulmonary function and diaphragm excursion in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery (Alaparthi, et al., 2016). Patients customarily receive an incentive spirometer for use postoperatively in the PACU. There is scant data in the thoracic surgery population concerning prehabilitation by dispensing the incentive spirometer at the PACT evaluation.

Diabetes costs the U.S. healthcare system more than any other disease, and nearly half of Americans will develop either diabetes or prediabetes in their lifetime. It is therefore critical to find new strategies to treat or reverse diabetes. One such approach is adopting a healthy diet, which can dramatically improve blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes and even induce diabetes remission. Despite this, not much is known about which food groups are most effective at improving blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes. Interestingly, of the various food groups that comprise the Mediterranean diet, epidemiologic data suggests that whole fruit may be one of the most efficacious at both preventing type 2 diabetes and improving blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. However, few clinical trials have investigated the effects of whole fruit on blood sugar control. This study will therefore be the first to determine the effects of increasing whole fruit as a food group in type 2 diabetes patients. This supervised controlled feeding trial will test whether consuming a diet rich in whole fruit for 12 weeks can induce diabetes remission and can improve blood sugar, liver fat, and cardiovascular health in adults with type 2 diabetes. Thereafter, participants will be followed for up to one year. As a secondary aim, this study will also test whether consuming a large amount of fructose in whole food form negatively affects liver fat and cardiovascular health.
