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 ...

Intravascular Lymphoma in the CNS: Options for Treatment

Purpose of review The purpose of this review was to discuss therapeutic manipulations and effective current interventions available to treat intravascular lymphoma in the central nervous system. Recent findings Patients experienced resolution and remission of disease for 14 months and up to 2 years after eight cycles of R-CHOP and four courses of intrathecal therapy with MTX, ...

Recruiting Rural Healthcare Providers Today: a Systematic Review of Training Program Success and Determinants of Geographic Choices

Background Rural areas have historically struggled with shortages of healthcare providers; however, advanced communication technologies have transformed rural healthcare, and practice in underserved areas has been recognized as a policy priority. This systematic review aims to assess reasons for current providers’ geographic choices and the success of training programs aimed at ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Properties and Corrosion Performance of Self-reinforced Composite PEEK for Proposed Use as a Modular Taper Gasket

Background Fretting corrosion in medical alloys is a persistent problem, and the need for biomaterials that can effectively suppress mechanically assisted crevice corrosion in modular taper junctions or otherwise insulate metal-on-metal interfaces in mechanically demanding environments is as yet unmet. Questions/purposes The purpose of this study is to characterize a novel ...

Improving Collaborative Behaviour Planning in Adult Auditory Rehabilitation: Development of the I-PLAN Intervention Using the Behaviour Change Wheel

Background The consequences of poorly managed hearing loss can be ameliorated with hearing aid use but rates of use are sub-optimal. The impact of audiologist behaviour on subsequent use, particularly over the long term, is unknown. Purpose This study aimed to describe the role of the behaviour change wheel in developing an intervention to introduce and embed particular clinical ...

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 ...
