Everything You Need To Know About Kyleena, The New IUD

There’s a new hormonal IUD in town: Kyleena, the first device of its kind meant to offer long-lasting contraception to women who have never been pregnant.  Kyleena was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Monday and will be available in October, part of a new surge in IUD offerings in recent years: Skyla appeared in 2013 as the first FDA-approved IUD in 12 years, and Liletta was approved in 2015.  IUDs are a common form of long-acting reversible contraception, or LARCs, that last for several years. The rapid development in the IUD market ― there are now five options total ― coincides with increasing usage rates of LARCs in general: About 7.2 percent of all women of reproductive age in the U.S. used LARCs like IUDs or contraceptive implants in 2013, a five-fold increase from 1.5 percent of women in 2002.   These IUDs ― short for intrauterine devices ― are small T-shaped objects inserted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. The hormonal devices release a small amount of levonorgestrel, a synthetic hormone that prevents the release of the egg from the ovary and fertilization of the egg by sperm. It also thins the uterine lining to prevent any embryos from implanting and becoming a pregnancy. Kyleena joins the previously released IUDs Mirena, Skyla, Liletta and Paragard. Unlike the others, ParaGard does not release hormones to help prevent contraception. Instead, it’s made with co...

Conclusion. For patients with symptomatic DS, patients who received surgery had significantly greater improvements in pain and function compared with nonoperative treatment through 8 years of follow-up. Fusion technique did not affect outcomes. Level of Evidence: 1

Study Design. Prospective single center study. Objective. The aim of this study was to evaluate 1) the activity of daily living (ADL) of three categorized patients group; over 60-year-old degenerative spine patients without adult spinal deformity (ASD), nonoperative ASD patients, and operative ASD patients, 2) what kinds of activities would be impaired, and 3) how the ADL changes over time after long level fusion. Summary of Background Data. There is still debate how surgeons could decide treatment methods for old-aged adult spinal deformity, operatively or not. There was lack of information how long level fusion i...

Conclusion. Great L3 and L4 tilt at skeletal maturity, especially those>16°, are predictors of future curve progression and LBP in adulthood, respectively. For adolescent patients with these risk factors, periodic follow-ups into adulthood should be considered. Level of Evidence: 4

Conclusion. This study demonstrates a strong correlation between neuromuscular gait parameters and fear-avoidance of movement which may reflect ADS patient experiences during ambulation. Further, it demonstrates that there are different aspects of fear-avoidance that may influence gait parameters. This study extends previous research on the role of fear-avoidance to include patients with spinal deformity. Level of Evidence: 3

Study Design. Community-based, cohort study. Objective. Our aim was to determine the course of back pain in middle-aged women over a 9-year period, and assess whether obesity and physical inactivity are associated with more frequent back pain. Summary of Background Data. Back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. With minimal effective therapies and rising financial burden, identifying modifiable risk factors remains a key priority. Methods. The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health is a cohort study of community-based, middle-aged women who completed questionnaires every 3 years between 2...

We report the synthesis and anti-inflammatory/antioxidant activity of a novel indanedione derivative DMFO. DMFO scavenged reactive oxygen species (ROS) in in-vitro radical scavenging assays and in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages. In acute models of inflammation (carrageenan-induced inflammation in rat paw and air pouch), DMFO effectively reduced paw oedema and leucocyte infiltration with an activity comparable to diclofenac. DMFO stabilised mast cells (MCs) in in-vitro A23187 and compound 48/80-induced assays. Additionally, DMFO stabilised MCs in an antigen (ovalbumin)-induced MC degranulation mod...

There is growing interest in the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) throughout the world; however, previous research performed in Turkey has not focused on CAM use in rural areas. The present study was aimed at determining CAM use among people aged 18 years or older living in Balikesir, a province in the western part of Turkey, and the correlates of CAM use. This cross-sectional study was conducted in Balikesir between January 2015 and April 2015. The sample group was reached with multistage cluster sampling method. The study included 410 people who agreed to participate. Data were collected with the quest...

Neonates may experience more than 300 painful procedures throughout their hospitalizations. Prior to 1980, there was a longstanding misconception that neonates do not experience pain. Current studies demonstrate that not only do neonates experience pain but also, due to their immature nervous systems, they are hypersensitive to painful stimuli. Poorly treated pain may lead to negative long-term consequences. Proper assessment of neonate pain is vital. The use of nonpharmacologic treatments may be beneficial in alleviating neonate pain. Pharmacologic treatments in the neonate have been well established. Pharmacologic and no...
