Association of the Mediterranean dietary pattern with the incidence of depression: the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra/University of Navarra follow-up (SUN) cohort.

The results suggest a potential protective role of the MDP with regard to the prevention of depressive disorders; additional longitudinal studies and trials are needed to confirm these findings.
Impact of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign protocols on hospital length of stay and mortality in septic shock patients: Results of a three-year follow-up quasi-experimental study*
TLDR
The implementation of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines was associated with a significant decrease in mortality and the 6-hr resuscitation bundle showed greater compliance and effectiveness than the 24-hr management bundle.
Epidemiology of Surgical-Site Infections Diagnosed After Hospital Discharge A Prospective Cohort Study
TLDR
The analysis of risk factors showed that most predictors for in-hospital SSI did not behave in the same manner for postdischarge SSI, and stepwise logistic regression only identified chemoprophylaxis, age, and body mass index as independent risk factors for post discharging SSI.
Use of colonoscopy as a primary screening test for colorectal cancer in average risk people
TLDR
Age, gender, and BMI can be used to build a simple score to select those average risk adults who might be candidates for primary screening colonoscopy, and these three variables were independent predictors of advanced adenomas in multivariate analysis.

Low-fat dairy consumption and reduced risk of hypertension: the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) cohort.

Flow-diverter devices for intracranial aneurysms: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A systematic review of medical literature up to May 2012 to assess the morbidity, case fatality rate, and efficacy of FDDs for intracranial aneurysms for patients eligible for more conventional treatments concluded that the current clinical use of F DDs is not supported by high-quality evidence.
