Patients with an ultraviolet blocking lens (UV) (n = 5) or blue filter lens (BB) (n = 8) after intraocular lens (IOL) replacement for cataract and age-adjusted controls (AACs) (n = 16) underwent a balanced crossover within-subject design. After 1.5 h of dark adaptation, they were exposed to polychromatic light at 6500 K (blue-enriched) and 2500 K and 3000 K (non-blue-enriched) for 2 hours in the evening. Visual comfort and mental effort were repeatedly assessed by the Visual Analogue Sca...
Device-independent certification refers to the characterization of an apparatus without reference to the internal description of other devices. It is a trustworthy certification method, free of assumption on the underlying Hilbert space dimension and on calibration methods. We show how it can be used to quantify the quality of a Bell-state measurement, whether deterministic, partial, or probabilistic. Our certification is noise resistant and opens the way towards the device-independent self-testing of Bell-...
The ability for PAs to easily move from one specialty to another without additional formal training is a unique feature of the profession that is valued by PAs and their employers. Specialty certification has been viewed as a threat to this flexibility, yet 73% of PAs are in specialty practice. How can the desire to preserve flexibility be balanced against the desire of specialized PAs to distinguish themselves in their chosen specialty? This article reviews the issue of specialty certification in the conte...
Some physicians, depending on the situation, are avoiding opioids to every reasonable degree, doing their part to keep patients off the drugs that killed more than 42,000 people in the United States in 2016. Fort Worth anesthesiologist Aaron Shiraz, MD, and his group, Trinity Medical Associates, are taking it to a rarely seen extreme.
Le Fort I maxillary advancements are reported to affect nasal proportions. However, there is a no significant data on the three-dimensional nasal changes that occur with differential lateral plane adjustment (clockwise (CW) and counterclockwise (CCW) movements) during Le Fort I maxillary advancements. The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare nasolabial soft tissue changes after Le Fort I CW and CCW repositioning.
It is essential that pharmacy staff, store customers, and the environments to which those individuals are exposed be protected from particles dispersed during compounding when powders are handled, incorporated into preparations, or become airborne when vessels that contain them are opened. The primary engineering controls used most often in nonsterile compounding to protect against such contaminants are fume hoods and powder-containment hoods. Those units must routinely undergo certification testing to conf...
Like all physicians, former Texas Medical Association President Hugh Lamensdorf, MD, made notes when he saw his patients. But the Fort Worth urologist, who passed away at age 82 in October, took this standard practice a bit further.

Abalone is an extremely valuable food source derived from cultured and wild animals, the later from populations under intense fishing exploitation and of high conservation value. As part of a long-term study to characterize genes from abalone that can be used as markers for hybrids certification, we characterised 5S ribosomal DNA (5S rDNA) in red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) and blue abalone (H. fulgens). The 5S rDNA arrays occur to a single pair of metacentric chromosomes at interstitial positions in both ...
The CyPass Micro-Stent (Alcon, Fort Worth, USA) is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgical (MIGS) device, implanted into the supra-choroidal space. The CyPass was FDA approved in July 2016 and CE marked in Europe. It was withdrawn voluntarily by the manufacturer in August 2018.
Le Fort III advancement and/or distraction involve osteotomies and dysjunction in the region of the maxillary tuberosity in proximity to the maxillary posterior tooth buds. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of early conventional Le Fort III advancement and/or distraction on development and eruption of the maxillary posterior permanent molars.
The Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy is a versatile and simple procedure, which has gained popularity nowadays, to correct a wide range of malocclusion and maxillofacial deformities. This procedure is often associated with significant but rare postoperative complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the types and frequencies of intra- and perioperative complications related to Le Fort I osteotomies in noncleft Iranian patients.

To determine the proportion of eyes with preexisting astigmatism achieving 0.50 diopters (D) or less of residual refractive cylinder 3 months after either implantation of toric intraocular lenses (IOLs) or corneal incisions using the VERION system (Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Fort Worth, TX) measurement module and digital markers for microscope (M) and laser (L).
The success of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) has been witnessed by the commercialization of this technology for manufacturing the vivid and colorful displays used in our daily life now. The prospective growth of OLED technology on display industry will be optimistic. Over the last three decades, many different approaches on material and device designs have been implemented for improving the efficiency and stability of OLED devices. These efforts install main cornerstones to support the great achievem...
The new certification module will continue to foster the development of interdisciplinary networks and a centralised commitment to high quality of care in paediatric oncology. The new module was initiated in a joint venture of the German Society of Paediatric Oncology and Haematology (GPOH) and the German Cancer Society (DKG) in 2016. The comprehensive Catalogue of Requirements is based on the directive for paediatric oncology by the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) and has been successfully implemented into ...
Lack of specialty board certification has been reported as a significant physician-level predictor of receiving a disciplinary action from a state medical board. This study investigated the association between family physicians receiving a disciplinary action from a state medical board and certification by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM).
The concept of comfort food is heterogeneous and encompasses many different aspects that have been difficult to define. Here, we propose that a situational approach may provide a new perspective for categorizing comfort foods. Using a web-based survey, 322 respondents first provided their lay definition of comfort foods. These definitions included the components of emotions, unhealthiness, nostalgia, tastiness, and ease of preparation. Although some participants listed each of these components, half of the ...
Previous research has shown that some appearance-focused situations lead to increased self-objectification, especially among women. The present research explored, with an experimental design, whether the simple fact of thinking about one's own physical appearance increases body shame through body surveillance and appearance-contingent self-worth in men and women. Our main prediction was that focusing on one's own appearance would increase both women's body surveillance and appearance-contingent self-worth, ...
More than 2,000 U.S. mumps cases occurred in 2018. That's down from 6,000-plus cases CDC reported in both 2016 and 2017, but a far cry from the hundreds reported in 2012. Texas is not immune. In 2018, mumps outbreaks occurred at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas State University in San Marcos, and a national cheerleading competition in Dallas. Mumps still spreads much faster and more dangerously among unvaccinated groups, and immunization remains the best protection.

To simplify the medical treatment of glaucoma for patients on multiple drops by introducing brinzolamide/brimonidine tartrate fixed combination (BBFC) ophthalmic suspension 1%/0.2% (SIMBRINZA; Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Fort Worth, TX, USA) to the drop regimen and to establish its efficacy. To demonstrate that fixed combination (FC) therapies are associated with improvements in treatment adherence and persistence with reduced exposure to preservative-related ocular surface problems.

Agminated blue nevi are dermal melanocytic proliferations that classically present as dark blue macules or papules in a grouped, linear, or blaschkoid distribution. In their more common sporadic form, blue nevi manifest in young adulthood as solitary blue papules or macules on the scalp, face, hands, or feet. By contrast, agminated blue nevi tend to manifest earlier in life, and are distributed more evenly across anatomic sites. Recent studies have identified mutations in sporadic blue nevi in the genes enc...
