• Accuracy of infrared thermography for perforator mapping: a systematic review and meta-analysis of diagnostic studies

    5 days ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    Infrared thermography allows the detection of infrared radiation, which can be reliably associated with skin temperature. Modern portable thermography devices have been used to identify the location of skin perforators by detecting subtle differences in skin temperature. The aim of this study is to conduct a diagnostic accuracy systematic review to determine the specificity and sensitivity of infrared thermography.

  • The Effect of Meal Frequency on Biochemical Cardiometabolic Factors: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

    5 days ago - By Clinical Nutrition

    Although several randomized controlled trials have supported the beneficial effects of higher meal frequency on cardiometabolic risk factors, the putative effects of higher MF on health remain inconclusive. This study systematically reviewed the evidence from RCTs of the effect of higher compared with lower MF on the blood lipid profile, glucose homeostasis, and adipokines.
