ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the association of the levels of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) with frailty and its components among the elderly over 65 years old in 9 longevity areas of China. Methods: Cross-sectional data from the Health Ageing and Biomarkers Cohort Study (HABCS, 2017-2018) were used and the elderly over 65 years old were included in this study. Through questionnaire interview and physical examination, the information including demographic characteristics, behavior, diet, daily activity, cognitive function, and health status was collected. The association between hs-CRP and frailty and its components in the participants was analyzed by multivariate logistic regression model and restrictive cubic spline. Results: A total of 2 453 participants were finally included, the age was (84.8±19.8) years old. The median hs-CRP level was 1.13 mg/L and the prevalence of frailty was 24.4%. Compared with the low-level group (hs-CRP<1.0 mg/L), the OR (95%CI) value of the high-level group (hs-CRP>3.0 mg/L) was 1.79 (1.35-2.36) mg/L. As for the components, the hs-CRP level was also positively associated with ADL disability, IADL disability, functional limitation and multimorbidity. After adjusting for confounding factors, compared with the low-level group, the OR (95%CI) values of the high-level group for the four components were 1.68 (1.25-2.27), 1.88 (1.42-2.50), 1.68 (1.31-2.14) and 1.39 (1.12-1.72), respectively. Conclusion: There is a positive association between the levels of hs-CRP and the risk of frailty among the elderly over 65 years old in 9 longevity areas of China. The higher hs-CRP level may increase the risk of frailty by elevating the risk of four physical functional disabilities, namely ADL disability, IADL disability, functional limitation and multimorbidity.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the clinical effect of reversed plantar metatarsal artery island flap in repairing the plantar soft tissue defects at the first and second toes.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>12 cases with plantar soft tissue defects at the first and second toes were repaired by reversed plantar metatarsal artery island flap which size ranged from 2 cm x 3 cm to 4 cm x 6 cm, including 5 cases at emergency, 5 cases with the donor site defects at great toes after free lateral pulp flap transfer, and 2 cases with the donor site defects at second toes after free medial pulp flap transfer.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>All the reversed plantar metatarsal artery island flaps at the first and second toes survived uneventfully with desirable appearance and sensation over a 3-35 month follow-up. No complication happened at the donor sites.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>It is an reliable method to adopt the reversed plantar metatarsal artery island flap for the plantar soft tissue defects at the first and second toes, with the advantages of stable blood vessels, high survival rate, good skin texture and few complications.</p>
