This Girl Tr òn: The Forgotten Subject of Vietnam War Photographer Larry Burrows

Larry Burrows was a seasoned veteran of the Vietnam War when, in early 1968, he met 12-year-old Nguyễn Thị Tròn. Operating out of Saigon, the southern Republic of Vietnam’s capital, the photographer had been covering the conflict for LIFE magazine since 1962. He shadowed American troops, documenting ferocious firefights, surviving hours in the air with helicopter-gunship crews, and freeze-framing harrowing moments of bravery and despair, exhaustion, and appalling violence in combat zones. Though much of his best work had been shot in the thick of the action, he had come to be haunted by the trauma visited upon the Vietnamese people he described as non-political, “simple and hardworking.” Most, he believed, were steamrollered by both the South and the communist North to “bear pain in silence.” Burrows noted their stoicism with awe. “I was walking the streets of Saigon, as I’ve been doing for six years, thinking I’d never really told of the misery and suffering,” the photographer later recalled of meeting Tròn. “Round a corner, in a Red Cross compound, two Vietnamese children were rocking back and forth in a swing […] Walking along the fencing I could see their small bodies rocking to and fro. Now I had a clearer view. They were not the same as any other two youngsters, for they only had one leg between them, and it was Tron who propelled the swing.” Tròn had lost her right leg ju...

Authors: Tavares Paes Barreto AC, Rangel da Rocha Paschoal AC, Barbosa Farias C, Gomes Nogueira Borges PS, Gonelli Albanez da Cunha Andrade R, de Orange FA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anesthesia emergence delirium (AED) is a self-limiting clinical phenomenon very common in children. Although pathophysiology is still uncertain, some factors seem to be involved, such as rapid awakening in an unknown environment, agitation during anesthetic induction, preoperative anxiety, environmental disorders, use of preanesthetic medication, use of inhalational anesthetics, and postoperative pain. OBJECTIVE: To determine the preva...

CONCLUSIONS: Among ischemic stroke patients, higher omentin-1 levels were inversely associated with carotid plaque instability, but not associated with moderate-severe carotid stenosis or occlusion. Omentin-1 may represent a biomarker for predicting carotid plaque instability of acute ischemic stroke patients. PMID: 29225325 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We highly appreciate the response from de Miguel-Yanes et  al1 about the influence of diabetes mellitus (DM) on the incidence rate of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP). Because patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) are at high risk for the development of DM, it is an important issue with significant implications for clinical practice.2

In their recent observational study, Zhao et  al1 found similar incidence rates of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) in patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) versus other biliary diseases, and they reported lower PEP incidence rates as the severity of CP increased. The authors state that they “identified other possible risk and protective fact ors not examined before. The reduced incidence of PEP in CP patients was correlated with the presence of diabetes mellitus, pancreatic stones, and the use of ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy).” We would like to point out that our group had formerly evalu...

Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893), a member of the Facult é de Médicin at the famous Hôpital Salpêtrière in Paris, a neurologist and professor of anatomic pathology, in 1877 brought attention to the “maladies du foie et des voie biliare”1 and the entity of “fièvre intermittente hépatique” characterized by the triad of jaundice, right upper q uadrant pain, and fever, which came to be one of his eponymous legacies. This condition later became known as ascending cholangitis, based on the belief that infection always ascended from the duodenum through an inco...

Abstract AimHypoglycaemia in Type 1 diabetes is associated with mortality and morbidity, especially where awareness of hypoglycaemia is impaired. Clinical pathways for access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring technologies are unclear. We assessed the impact of CGM and flash glucose monitoring in a high‐risk group of people with Type 1 diabetes. MethodsA randomized, non‐masked parallel group study was undertaken. Adults with Type 1 diabetes using a multiple‐dose insulin‐injection regimen with a Gold score of ≥ 4 or recent severe hypoglycaemia were recruited. Following 2 ...
