CONCLUSION: Our analysis found that patients had excellent outcomes across multiple PROM metrics. Future work can build on these results with large patient populations over longer follow-up intervals. Nevertheless, these results provide the foundation and evidence to support the continued use of this innovative technology for total knee arthroplasties.

Authors: Wang J, Chen Z Abstract Pain is a salient and complex sensory experience with important affective and cognitive dimensions. The current definition of pain relies on subjective reports in both humans and experimental animals. Such definition lacks basic mechanistic insights and can lead to a high degree of variability. Research on biomarkers for pain has previously focused on genetic analysis. However, recent advances in human neuroimaging and research in animal models have begun to show the promise of a circuit-based neural signature for pain. At the treatment level, pharmacological therapy for pain remain...
Authors: Girard BC, Lévy P Abstract PURPOSE: To determine the significance of dry eye syndrome in benign essential blepharospasm. DESIGN: Retrospective consecutive case series. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred and forty-four patients (288 eyes) with benign essential blepharospasm. METHODS: All subjects had Schirmer I tear tests. Those scores were analysed as a function of patient age, sex, and blepharospasm severity. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Individual Schirmer-test scores in both eyes of all patients. RESULTS: A total of 144 eligible subjects (mean age±SD: 68.3±11.5 years; 76% femal...
CONCLUSION: Optic neuritis is a pathology frequently encountered in ophthalmology; a good knowledge of symptoms and clinical signs is essential for early diagnosis and optimal management. The identification of autoantibodies, including anti-MOG antibodies, is important for patient management and is part of the required testing for all cases of optic neuritis, in order to adapt the treatment of the acute episode and to provide maintenance therapy to avoid recurrence.

This article represents the findings from the queries over the first three months ’ queries and brings further clarity to our initial findings.Methods This quality improvement (QI) project was reviewed and approved by the Orlando Health/UFHealth Cancer Center Joint Oncology Committee for 2018-19. We began recording results of all E-FORSCE queries occurring after the law ’s implementation of July 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018. We informed each patient that the PDMP query had become mandatory in Florida, and we discussed the results of each query with each patient. Each query examined the last 12 months of t...
