The trauma of birth or parenting a child: effect on parents' negative emotion in China - Xiang Y, Chi X, Wu H, Zeng T, Chao X, Zhang P, Mo L.
The present study assessed negative emotions associated with the traumas of infertility and child rearing (child's disability or death) and the correlates of duration of trauma. The widely used Chinese Mental Health Scale was used to assess negative emotio...
AbstractObjectiveRecent literature reveals worse periodontal health condition in ankylosing spondylitis (AS). However, roles of AS-related parameters, periodontal condition, and their association appear unclear. This cross-sectional study aimed at investigating dental and periodontal health as well as potentially periodontal pathogenic bacteria in patients with AS compared to healthy control subjects (HC).MethodsDental examination comprised dental findings (DMF-T), periodontal probing depth (PPD), bleeding on probing, clinical attachment loss (CAL), papillary bleeding index, and microbiological analysis based on polymerase...
In conclusion, IA injection of PN-KGN is a better potential strategy to treat OA, with long-time cartilage protection and less IA injections. PMID: 29667446 [PubMed - in process]

We appreciate the opportunity to emphasize the value of lifelong limb preservation (LLP) as a valuable patient-centered outcome measure. Dr Kuo et al raise several questions, all of which revolve around the “legitimacy” of not censoring death as an outcome in our life-table analysis. This conceptual stumbling block arises from the specific nature of limb salvage procedures and the context within which they are performed. The purpose of l ower extremity revascularization is not to prolong life but to avoid amputation and disability in the final few years of life.

CONCLUSION: Our results show unsatisfactory improvement in patients with irreparable RCT treated with the sub-acromial balloon spacer. Careful patient selection with attention to preoperative ROM should be considered. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic level IV. PMID: 29665765 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: The obtained results show that the proposed approach achieves a competitive performance compared to state-of-the-art models in dealing with the clinical risk prediction problem. In addition, our approach can extract informative risk factors of ACS via a reconstructive learning strategy. Some of these extracted risk factors are not only consistent with existing medical domain knowledge, but also contain suggestive hypotheses that could be validated by further investigations in the medical domain.
