With this approach, vascular injuries have been reported ranging from 1% to 25%. The impact of resident participation on intraoperative and postoperative outcomes within an independent academic medical center has not been widely reported. The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of complications during anterior e...
This article analyzes the role of doctors and activists in Chicago who successfully redefined the practice and politics of childbirth both locally and ultimately nationwide. It begins with the story of Joseph DeLee's Chicago Maternity Center, responsible for supervising over 100,000 home births between 1932 and 1972. Most of the mothers cared for by the Center were nonwhite, poor, and had little or no access to prenatal care, yet their babies had a far higher survival rate than the nationwide average. Thous...
Providing comprehensive medical care for patients with rare diseases is both challenging and rewarding. We will give a short summary of the most relevant medical issues pertinent to this subject, and will illustrate some of these issues by sharing our experience in the care of patients with TSC disease.
Numerous studies report a correlation between distance to diagnostic provider in an academic medical center and poorer prognosis ofdisease. Limited research on this topic exists with respect to melanoma.

In parts of Ohio, Veterans Affairs Medical Centers are working to handle patient load issues by sending patient overflows to the Wright-Patterson Medical Center. The Wright-Patterson Medical Center will benefit from the increase in patients; however, there are concerns that the patient quality of care may suffer. If the increase in patients results in the healthcare staff experiencing high mental workload levels, staff performance could be reduced. The objective of this research is to evaluate the influence...

Millions of patients travel internationally for medical and surgical care. We found that the annual number of centers accredited by the Joint Commission International increased from one center in 1999 to 132 centers in 2016; there are currently 939 accredited centers across 66 countries. Public health and medicolegal implications related to medical travel deserve attention.
Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) is the most common autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia reported worldwide, but it shows marked geographic differences in prevalence. The study of ancestral origins and spreading routes of MJD mutational events has contributed to explain such differences. During human evolution, at least two independent de novo MJD expansions occurred in distinct haplotype backgrounds: TTACAC and GTGGCA (named Joseph and Machado lineages). The most ancient Joseph lineage, probably of Asian ...

The arrival of a large number of war-weapon casualties at a civilian trauma center requires anticipation. A plan defining the management principles and the respective roles of the involved physicians and nurses and their interaction with each other is essential. Uni-directional patient flow associated with adequate numbers of staff physicians and nurses under the leadership of a medical director is essential to prevent the overwhelming of the trauma center. Routine and regular interaction between the pre-ho...
