Authors: Hernandez A, Nuñez JH, Sallent A, Gargallo-Margarit A, Gallardo-Calero I, Barro V Abstract Backgroud: Untreated osteonecrosis of the femoral head ultimately leads to secondary coxarthrosis. The aim of this study was to determinate if the core decompression of the femoral head combined with implantation of autologous bone marrow concentrate with tricalcium phosphate could be used to prevent radiographic progression of early stage osteonecrosis of the hip. We also sought to determine whether this treatment improved clinical outcomes and reduced the need for total hip arthroplasty. Methods: Eightee...

 Since time was invented, people have fallen into three main categories: Chronically early, on-time, or late. You don’t need mental illness to put things off until the last minute and it doesn’t take anxiety to get things done well ahead of schedule.

In this episode, Gabe and Michelle discuss the difference between putting things off because we are making bad choices and putting things off because of mental health issues. Listen now!

In conclusion, treatment outcomes in different domains seem to be linked to the client’s motivation to attend treatment and the feeling of being coerced into therapy, regardless of mandate (2). It has been argued that there is, potentially, an element of coercion in every clinical encounter (80) and the perception of coercion has a variety of determinants, many of which are dependent on the quality of relationship with the service provider (45). Therefore, reducing feelings of coercion might improve treatment outcomes, prevent disengagement from services, and ameliorate therapeutic relationships (5). Facilitating the...

We present the case of an 80-year-old woman, single with no children, who lived alone, and, up until presentation, was able to perform activities of daily living self-sufficiently.

She had completed two years of college before dropping out during her third year, and her last job was as an elder care-worker. She had no personal or family psychiatric antecedents and no history of alcohol or illicit drug addictions. The patient was diagnosed with DM2 two years previously and was treate...

Methamphetamine and amphetamine (hereafter referred to collectively as methamphetamine) can produce a transient psychosis almost indistinguishable from acute paranoid schizophrenia (Angrist et al., 1974; Angrist and Gershon, 1970; Connell, 1966; McKetin et al., 2013). Differentiating between the two conditions with the existing diagnostic criteria is difficult based on presenting symptoms, resulting in misdiagnosis, suboptimal follow-up with a potentially poorer prognosis (Mathias et al., 2008).
