Patient opinion of scarring is multidimensional: An investigation of the POSAS with confirmatory factor analysis

Scarring is considered one of the most devastating consequences of a burn which impacts negatively on quality of life [1 –6]. Scarring has been associated with long term physical limitations including altered sensory function [7], chronic pain [8,9], chronic itch [10–14], and limitations to functional movement [15,16]. The psychosocial sequelae can include social stigmatism [3], social anxiety [17], discrimination [3,18], depression [19,20], post-traumatic stress [3,17] and poor body image [21–23].

CONCLUSIONS: The observed changes in CoM motion at POST2 may be associated with atypical running biomechanics that can translate to greater mediolateral impulses, potentially increasing the risk of injury. This study demonstrates the use of an accelerometer as an effective tool to detect atypical CoM motion for runners due to fatigue, recovery, and musculoskeletal pain in real-world environments.

Primary extrarenal Wilms tumor of the gynecologic tract is extremely rare with scattered case reports occurring in the ovary, uterine corpus and cervix. Only 9 cases of primary ovarian Wilms tumor have been reported to date. Here, we provide an extensive literature review and describe 2 patients with ovarian Wilms tumor: a 36-yr-old female (patient 1) and a 16-yr-old female (patient 2), both presenting with abdominal pain and suspected ovarian torsion. They were each found to have unilateral ovarian masses measuring>15 cm in size which were removed by unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Microscopically, the tumors ...
