Why This Clinic For Moms With Postpartum Depression Is A Game Changer

A new clinic in New York City is helping moms prioritize their mental health with its focus on diagnosing and treating women for postpartum depression and other postpartum disorders. The Motherhood Center of New York, which opened two months ago, offers treatment for moms battling perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Most commonly, the staff there treats moms with postpartum depression, but they also help women with postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD and postpartum psychosis along with patients dealing with infertility and pregnancy loss. Paige Bellenbaum, program director at the Motherhood Center, said the hundreds of calls the clinic has already received reflects how many mothers need this resource. “Just by design of opening this and of all the attention that has been in the media lately with famous people coming forward and more and more people sharing their stories, we’re seeing an uptick in the willingness to treat perinatal mood and anxiety disorders,” she told HuffPost. For mothers with moderate or severe depression, the Motherhood Center offers a day program that lasts five hours a day (Monday through Friday) for about two to three weeks. The program includes individual and group therapy sessions as well as mother-infant therapy, a meditation room, breathing exercises and medication management as needed.

Duodenal carcinoma is a rare manifestation of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). A lifetime cumulative incidence of duodenal cancer of around 4.5% (95% confidence interval, 0.1%-8.9%) was reported by the age of 57 years in the period of 1990 to 2001.1 In the meantime, however, the improved treatment of patients with FAP in general has resulted in longer life expectancy.2 Therefore, the natural course of the disease progresses further, and patients experience more-advanced stages of duodenal polyposis.

CONCLUSIONS: The increase in blood flow in superficial skin layers indicates reactive hyperemia after exposure in both groups. The prolonged hyperemia in deep skin layers in patients with diabetes indicates increased tissue vulnerability. Despite the increase in blood flow in deep skin layers, the SO2 and thus supply of tissue in patients with diabetes were reduced.

Authors: Dousset L, Boniface K, Seneschal J Abstract Antibody-based therapeutics targeting programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) have shown strong efficacy in the treatment of metastatic cancers as melanoma. However, restoring the immune function with these therapies to target cancer cells leads to immune side effects including immune cutaneous events. Vitiligo-like lesions in patients receiving anti-PD-1 is one of the most common skin adverse event reported and the incidence seems to be higher than in patients receiving other immune-checkpoints therapies. Initially described in patients with metastatic melanoma, vitiligo...

Authors: Arese V, Murabito P, Ribero S, Panzone M, Tonella L, Fierro MT, Papini M, Quaglino P Abstract Autoimmune connective tissue-diseases are more frequent in women and deserve a multidisciplinary approach in which the dermatologist play a major role together with other physicians. Pregnancy in these patients has to be considered a high-risk situation, because of possible worsening of the mother's disease and increased morbility and mortality for the fetus; also, therapies have to be chosen carefully because some drugs cannot be used during pregnancy. For all these reasons, the decision to become pregnant needs ...

This study sought to test a methodology for estimating over-screening due to excessive periodicity, defined as a smaller than recommended interval between exams, and its association with socio-demographic characteristics. A cohort of women who underwent mammography in 2010, and whose result was normal, was assembled through probabilistic linkage SISMAMA records based on a set of personal identifiers. We used data from women living in the micro health region of Juiz de Fora/Lima Duarte/Bom Jardim, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, who were followed in the System until the end of 2012. The rate of over-screening was 150/1,000 wome...
