Contemporary management of acute kidney trauma
Publication date: Available online 9 October 2015 Source:Journal of Acute Disease Author(s): Inês Anselmo da Costa, Bastian Amend, Arnulf Stenzl, Jens Bedke Renal injury occurs in 1%–5% of all traumas, causing disability or even death. The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) renal injury scale should be used when reporting these injuries. Although there is a consensus regarding handling of lower-grade injuries conservatively, the same cannot be said for the higher-grades, for which different specialists handle either conservatively or surgically. A search of the MEDLINE database was undertaken by using the following filters: English language articles, full-text availability, last five years, Humans. Pediatric studies were excluded. For most renal injuries in hemodynamically stable, patients can be safely handled conservatively. An organized assessment and treatment system can reduce the need for nephrectomy in most other cases, as has occurred in the last two decades. The AAST injury scale should be updated in light of the advancements in imaging techniques, in order to fine tune grading and treatment.
Conclusions: Psychiatric comorbidity is very common in epileptic patients and depending on the type of diagnosed epilepsy, various symptoms are expressed. Furthermore, psychological stress is more observable in adolescents with epilepsy. For patients with epilepsy, mental health care and seizure control is extremely important in the prevention of serious mental disabilities. PMID: 31961263 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Recurrent stroke is becoming an increasingly important public health issue owing to the increased risk of disability and death. However, population-based studies investigating the rate of recurrent stroke in China are rare. We explored the rate and determinants of recurrent stroke within 1 and 5 years after the initial stroke in a rural population in China. Data for stroke events were obtained from the Tianjin Brain Study, conducted between 1992 and 2016. The age-standardized rates of recurrent stroke within the first year and the first 5 years after the initial stroke were calculated for this period. Determinants of recur...
DiscussionThe adapted MAM-36 showed adequate psychometric properties. However, indications of problematic targeting to PwMS with low disability emerged. For this reason, use of the scale appears to be more suitable among patients with moderate-to-severe disability.

Complaining about work is a popular pastime. It can be a way of bonding with others who also have impossible bosses, annoying coworkers, or miserable working conditions. But few of us would want to be unfairly barred from all that work can offer. The benefits of a job go beyond economic support. In the best cases, jobs can provide structure, social ties and social support, welcome challenges, and maybe even a sense of self and a meaningful life. If you have a mental illness, though, you may find it particularly difficult to land a job, even if you want to work and you are qualified for the jobs that interest you. According...

ConclusionWe presented a successful kidney transplant in a mentally disabled person, clinical and ethical justifications for such a procedure, and a four-year post-transplant evaluation. Furthermore, in our opinion, renal transplantation in the mentally challenged needs to be referred to in literature exclusively as a relative contraindication instead of an absolute one, as has been practiced to date. This would facilitate transplantation teams deciding on kidney transplantation in mentally incapacitated individuals.
