In this study, researchers put some numbers to the correlation, and improve on previous attempts to rule out wealth and other effects as significant contributing causes. A study finds that a Chinese policy is unintentionally causing people in northern China to live 3.1 years less than people in the south, due to air pollution concentrations that are 46 percent higher. These findings imply that every additional 10 micrograms per cubic meter of particulate matter pollution reduces life expectancy by 0.6 years. The elevated mortality is entirely due to an increase in cardiorespiratory deaths, indicating that air poll...

She was on hormonal supplementation with transdermal estrogen. Preoperative examination and imaging revealed a 5 cm friable mass at the vaginal cuff and a smaller pelvic mass in the left pelvic sidewall.

Harry and his father at Dana/Farber-Boston Children’s In their Brookline home-away-from-home, 2-year-old Duy Anh “Harry” Le plays with blocks and pop-up toys on the floor with his mother, Thao Nguyen.

Conclusion The laparoscopic management of abdominal pregnancy and hemoperitoneum resulting from rupture of the gestational chamber and abortion was optimal. With this minimally invasive technique, it was possible to drain the hemoperitoneum completely and then proceed to total removal of the gestational chamber and the fetus. Thanks to the magnification of the image by laparoscopy, it was also possible to completely remove the placenta and the cotyledons from the peritoneal surface, thereby avoiding possible postoperative bleeding, infection, and sepsis resulting from retention of incomplete removal of the placenta. On the...
