It is increasingly apparent that not only is a cure for the current worldwide diabetes epidemic required, but also for its major complications, affecting both small and large blood vessels. These complications occur in the majority of individuals with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Among the most prevalent microvascular complications are kidney disease, blindness, and amputations, with current therapies only slowing disease progression. Impaired kidney function, exhibited as a reduced glomerular filtration rate, is also a major risk factor for macrovascular complications, such as heart attacks and strokes. There have been a large number of new therapies tested in clinical trials for diabetic complications, with, in general, rather disappointing results. Indeed, it remains to be fully defined as to which pathways in diabetic complications are essentially protective rather than pathological, in terms of their effects on the underlying disease process. Furthermore, seemingly independent pathways are also showing significant interactions with each other to exacerbate pathology. Interestingly, some of these pathways may not only play key roles in complications but also in the development of diabetes per se. This review aims to comprehensively discuss the well validated, as well as putative mechanisms involved in the development of diabetic complications. In addition, new fields of research, which warrant further investigation as potential therapeutic targets of the future, will be highlighted.

Osteonecrosis of the jaw can occur after wisdom teeth removal. It is a disease that can cause damage and death to both the maxillary (upper) and mandibular (lower) jaw bone. Bone that is exposed will fail to heal. This necrotic bone can become painful. Osteonecrosis of the jaw is associated with patients taking antiresorptive agents including intravenous (IV) bisphosphonates, oral bisphosphonates, and RANK ligand inhibitor and is also associated with patients taking antiangiogenic agents. One study showed the risk of ONJ occuring in patients exposed to oral bisphosphonates after tooth extraction is %. [84, 85, 160, 178]

Following the prophylactic use of Cephalosporin antibiotics, a standard practice for total hip replacements, Clostridium difficile bacteria may overgrow in the bowel. They produce a toxin which damages the bowel lining, resulting in diarrhoea. Onset of symptoms usually occurs after the pre-operative and post-operative dose of antibiotic treatment. Most patient’s symptoms resolve due to the fact that drug treatment has been discontinued, while others may require specific antibiotic therapy to treat the bacteria causing the colitis. Rarely, the colitis is severe and protracted and bowel perforation may occur. Patients with metabolic imbalance and bowel problems can become severely ill and die.

A hospital-based perinatal database was used to identify women with a body mass index (BMI) of greater than 35 undergoing their first cesarean delivery. Hospital and outpatient medical records were reviewed for the following variables: age, insurance status, BMI, gestational age at delivery, birth weight, smoking history, prior abdominal surgery, existing comorbidities, preoperative hematocrit, chorioamnionitis, duration of labor and membrane rupture, dilation at time of cesarean delivery, type of skin and uterine incision, estimated blood loss, operative time, antibiotic prophylaxis, use of subcutaneous drains or sutures, endometritis, and length of stay. The primary outcome variable was any wound complication requiring opening the incision. Multiple logistic regression analysis was completed to determine which of these factors contributed to the incidence of wound complications.
