Non-invasive measures of coronary microcirculation: Taking the long road to the clinic

Although coronary microvascular disease is now a well-recognized entity that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, current non-invasive strategies cannot differentiate between coronary microvascular disease (CMD) and obstructive epicardial stenosis. While the evaluation of intramyocardial blood volume as a surrogate measure for microvascular health may have ...

Does Medicaid Insurance Confer Adequate Access to Adult Orthopaedic Care in the Era of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act?

Background A current appraisal of access to orthopaedic care for the adult patient receiving Medicaid is important, since Medicaid expansion was written into law by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Questions/Purposes (1) Do orthopaedic practices provide varying access to orthopaedic care for simulated patients with Medicaid insurance versus private insurance ...

Navigating Language Barriers: A Systematic Review of Patient Navigators’ Impact on Cancer Screening for Limited English Proficient Patients

OBJECTIVES To systematically review the literature on the impact of patient navigators on cancer screening for limited English proficient (LEP) patients. DATA SOURCES Electronic databases (PubMed, PsycINFO via OVID, Web of Science, Cochrane, EMBASE, and Scopus) through 8 May 2015. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA Articles in this review had: (1) a study population of LEP patients eligible for ...

Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Disease: Are There Benefits?

Early secondary prevention trials of fish and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) capsules reported beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes, including all-cause mortality and sudden cardiac death. These clinical findings, as well as observational and experimental data, demonstrated that omega-3 PUFAs reduced the risk of coronary outcomes and overall ...

Routine Computer Tomography Imaging for the Detection of Recurrences in High-Risk Melanoma Patients

Background The use of routine CT imaging for surveillance in asymptomatic patients with cutaneous melanoma is controversial. We report our experience using a surveillance strategy that included CT imaging for a cohort of patients with high-risk melanoma. Methods A total of 466 patients with high-risk cutaneous melanoma enrolled in adjuvant immunotherapy trials were followed for ...

Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus: Current Treatment Options

Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) is a heterogeneous autoimmune skin disease that can present with or without systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Managing CLE is important in order to reduce potential and established areas of damage, as well as improve quality of life (QOL). Non-drug therapy should be used in every case, which includes photoprotection, smoking cessation, and ...

Will My Tibial Fracture Heal? Predicting Nonunion at the Time of Definitive Fixation Based on Commonly Available Variables

Background Accurate prediction of tibial nonunions has eluded researchers. Reliably predicting tibial nonunions at the time of fixation could change management strategies and stimulate further research. Questions/purposes We asked (1) whether data from medical records, fracture characteristics, and radiographs obtained at the time of fixation would identify features predictive of ...

Gamma Radiation Sterilization Reduces the High-cycle Fatigue Life of Allograft Bone

Background Sterilization by gamma radiation impairs the mechanical properties of bone allografts. Previous work related to radiation-induced embrittlement of bone tissue has been limited mostly to monotonic testing which does not necessarily predict the high-cycle fatigue life of allografts in vivo. Questions/Purposes We designed a custom rotating-bending fatigue device to answer ...
