Modification of legal capacity is a protective measure involving a judicial procedure; a deeper understanding of this concept is necessary for its execution in such vulnerable populations as patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). Unawareness of a patient's legal capacity and failure to adequately protect them may give rise to situations of avoidable risk.
Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a common finding among patients with heart failure (HF) and it is related to adverse events. Outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) are still a matter of debate. We performed a meta-analysis to assess mid- and long-term outcomes of patients with FMR treated with MitraClip® compared to medical management.
Cleft is one of the most common anomalies affecting 1 in every 500-750 newborns. Depending on the type of cleft and its size, these children may experience feeding problems immediately after birth. Cleft has consequences for the child, as well as for the parents. The aim of this study was to gain a better understanding on the factors influencing the psychological well-being of the parents. Also, the experiences of parents of children with feeding problems and the received medical guidance were studied.
The Wilderness Medical Society convened an expert panel to develop a set of evidence-based guidelines for prevention and treatment of frostbite. We present a review of pertinent pathophysiology. We then discuss primary and secondary prevention measures and therapeutic management. Recommendations are made regarding each treatment and its role in management. These recommendations are graded on the basis of the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks or burdens for each modali...
This study had two objectives: (1) to determine if, in the United States of America (US), the proportion of non-US citizen international medical graduates (non-US IMGs) entering pathology residencies had increased (again) in 2019 and (2) to assess how this multi-year trend might impact transfusion medicine in the US.
Premature infants hospitalized after birth are exposed to repeated painful procedures as part of their routine medical care. Early neonatal exposure to unmanaged pain has been linked to numerous negative long-term outcomes, such as the development of pain hypersensitivity, detrimental psychological symptomology, and altered neurodevelopment. These findings emphasize the crucial role of pain management in neonatal care. The aim of this article is to give an overview of evidence-based non-pharmacological pain...
3D printers are increasingly used in medical applications such as surgical planning, creation of implants and prostheses, and medical education. For the creation of reliable 3D printed models of the vertebral column, processing must be performed on CT images. This processing must be assessed and validated so that any error of the printed model can be recognized and minimized.
The acquisition of signed informed consent is not always enough to ensure adequate medical protection. Particularly, in plastic surgery, improving the doctor-patient relationship by understanding the patient's emotions and expectations becomes a determining factor when choosing the best therapeutic strategy for the subject in question, which may also include nonsurgical eligibility.
Existing evidence on long-term psychotropic polypharmacy in older people is scarce despite serious safety concerns regarding this issue. This study aims to identify distinct trajectories of longitudinal psychotropic agent use and to examine the association with the risk of mortality and unplanned hospitalization according to distinct trajectories.
Hypotensive Episodes (HEs) are one of the most common complications during dialysis. Occurrence of HEs can be reduced by applying physiological closed loop systems that monitor physiological parameter(s) and adjust dialysis related parameter(s). We developed a physiological closed loop control system (PCLCS) that monitors systolic blood pressure (sysBP) and relative blood volume (RBV) and calculates the net fluid removal (nfr) rate during dialysis. The performance of PCLCS was compared in the laboratory to ...
This study seeks to evaluate the psychological and academic effects of grading a medical school simulation course. This study also seeks to evaluate whether a student's class rank affects these results and whether the academic effects of a simulation course persist long-term.
This study sought to assess medical management of patients found to have nonobstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) on coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) performed in the emergency department (ED).
Despite improvements in medical management of advanced prostate cancer (aPC), it continues to be a leading cause of cancer death in men. Contemporary management of men with aPC is complex and requires resources to be more readily available at high-volume facilities.
Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder due to heterozygous pathogenic variants in transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) signaling-related genes. LDS types 1-6 are distinguished depending on the involved gene. LDS is characterized by multiple arterial aneurysms and dissections in addition to variable neurological and systemic manifestations. Patient 1:a 68-year-old man was admitted due to an aphasic transient ischemic attack (TIA). Brain CT-scan and CT angiography re...
Expansion of insurance coverage for gender confirmation surgery (GCS) has led to a large demand for GCS in the United States. This paper sought to determine the financial impact of providing comprehensive GCS services at an academic medical center.
Given the preventable morbidity and mortality associated with atrial fibrillation (AF), increased awareness of undiagnosed AF, and advances in mobile electrocardiogram (ECG) technology, there is a critical need to assess the effectiveness of using such technology to routinely screen for AF in clinical practice. VITAL-AF is a pragmatic trial that will test whether screening for AF using a single-lead handheld ECG in individuals 65 years or older during primary care visits will lead to an increased rate of AF...
Design and rationale of the COMPLETE trial: A randomized, comparative effectiveness study of complete versus culprit-only percutaneous coronary intervention to treat multivessel coronary artery disease in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
A significant proportion of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD). Following successful culprit lesion percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for STEMI, the question of whether to routinely revascularize non-culprit lesions or manage them conservatively with optimal medical therapy (OMT) alone is a common dilemma facing clinicians. METHODS: COMPLETE is a prospective, randomized, international, multicenter, parallel group, open-label...

In order to reveal the chlorine behavior during hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of medical waste, polyvinyl chloride and medical waste model (MW) were respectively treated by HTC at temperature ranging from 220 °C to 300 °C for 30 min. HTC products were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, etc. It is found that HTC can efficiently remove chlorine from both polyvinyl chloride and MW. The most dramatical dechlorination can be induced by HTC at ar...
Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is one of the few effective treatments for heart failure patients with ventricular dyssynchrony. The pacing location of the left ventricle is indicated as a determinant of CRT outcome.
The detection of viscosity is of great significance for medical research. Herein, we have developed a two-photon fluorescent probe CB-V for monitoring micro-viscosity changes. The fluorescence emission intensity of CB-V increased 9.6-fold from methanol to glycerol exhibiting an excellent fluorescence response. With excellent properties of CB-V, monitoring the viscosity variations has been achieved not only in living cells but also in zebra fish and mice.
Abnormal level of serotonin (ST) in body fluids is related to various clinical conditions including behavioral and psychotic disorders; hence its fast detection in clinically relevant ranges have tremendous importance in medical science. In view of this, we have developed a novel biosensor for ST detection using Au-nanorattles (AuNRTs)- reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanocomposite coated on to the gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) deposited glassy carbon electrode (GCE). The nanocomposite/sensor probe was characteri...
Current advances in assisted reproductive technologies aim to promote the health and well-being of future children. They offer the possibility to select embryos with the greatest potential of being born healthy (eg, preimplantation genetic testing) and may someday correct faulty genes responsible for heritable diseases in the embryo (eg, human germline genome modification (HGGM)). Most laws and policy statements surrounding HGGM refer to the notion of 'serious' as a core criterion in determining what geneti...
