CONCLUSION: Medical human resource planning in Europe is inconsistent. Political implementation of the results of forecasting projections is essential to insure efficient planning. However, crucial elements such as mobility data between Member States are poorly understood, impairing medical supply regulation policies. These policies are commonly limited to training regulations, while horizontal and vertical substitution is less frequently taken into consideration. PMID: 29217324 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Han L, Kamdar MR Abstract Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), a malignant brain tumor, is among the most lethal of all cancers. Temozolomide is the primary chemotherapy treatment for patients diagnosed with GBM. The methylation status of the promoter or the enhancer regions of the O6-methylguanine methyltransferase (MGMT) gene may impact the efficacy and sensitivity of temozolomide, and hence may affect overall patient survival. Microscopic genetic changes may manifest as macroscopic morphological changes in the brain tumors that can be detected using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can serve as noninva...

Authors: Adhikari BM, Jahanshad N, Shukla D, Glahn DC, Blangero J, Reynolds RC, Cox RW, Fieremans E, Veraart J, Novikov DS, Nichols TE, Hong LE, Thompson PM, Kochunov P Abstract Big data initiatives such as the Enhancing NeuroImaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis consortium (ENIGMA), combine data collected by independent studies worldwide to achieve more generalizable estimates of effect sizes and more reliable and reproducible outcomes. Such efforts require harmonized image analyses protocols to extract phenotypes consistently. This harmonization is particularly challenging for resting state fMRI due to the wide ...

Authors: Whitley JM, McDonnell DE Abstract Preview Data entry, bar-code scanning at a grocery store checkout, playing the drums-these are all activities that may precipitate carpal tunnel syndrome, the most common entrapment neuropathy. Beyond cessation of repetitive wrist motions, treatment options range from corticosteroid injection to surgical intervention. Which form of therapy is best for your patient? Which tests are most useful in clinical evaluation? The authors address these questions in this overview of diagnosis and treatment. PMID: 29219777 [PubMed]

Authors: Miller GH, Fried CF Abstract Preview Pulmonary embolism, a common complication off deep venous thrombosis that may cause sudden death or chronic disability is notoriously difficult to diagnose. It may be silent, or it may mimic precisely the typical presentation of numerous other diseases. In this article, the authors describe the classic signs and symptoms and discuss current procedures that must be used in evaluation. They also provide a work sheet to aid physicians in the clinical application of ventilation-perfusion scan results. PMID: 29219776 [PubMed]

Authors: Willen SM, Gladwin MT Abstract Patient case: An 18-year-old male patient with homozygous hemoglobin SS disease was evaluated for progressive dyspnea and elevated tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity (TRV) on echocardiography. The patient's case is described in detail in Lancet1 He had been treated with regular transfusions since childhood for stroke, had rare episodes of vaso-occlusive pain episodes, and did not take narcotic pain medications. He presented with progressive severe dyspnea on exertion and lower extremity edema. His laboratory tests were notable for a total hemoglobin level of 11.8 g/dL and hem...

Authors: Reagan PM, Davies A Abstract A 60-year-old female presented with abdominal pain and distension. Following computed tomography scans of the abdomen and pelvis, she was taken urgently to the operating room, with the belief that she had appendicitis with perforation. At laparotomy, the findings were consistent with an ovarian carcinoma; there was extensive infiltration of the ovary, bowel, and omental deposits. Cytoreductive surgery was performed including total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The final pathology, however, revealed infiltration with medium-sized atypical lymphoid c...

Authors: Bannow BTS, Skeith L Abstract CASE PRESENTATION: A 26-year-old woman experienced persistent fever (39.5°C), chills, and right-lower-quadrant tenderness 3 days after caesarean delivery. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis with contrast revealed enlargement of her right ovarian vein with an associated intraluminal filling defect. What is the best treatment of this patient? PMID: 29222252 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Cúrdia Gonçalves T, Arieira C, Monteiro S, Rosa B, Moreira MJ, Cotter J Abstract BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Available scoring systems to assess the risk for major bleeding in patients on chronic anticoagulation seem inadequate in predicting higher diagnostic yields of small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) or higher rebleeding rates in patients with suspected small bowel bleeding. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of the new ORBIT score in predicting positive findings of SBCE or higher rebleeding rates in chronically anticoagulated patients with suspected small bowel bleeding. ...

CONCLUSION: GS was common in IBD and associated with having had a recent flare. GS may be transient for some patients, whereby dietary recommendations during and after a flare could focus on the avoidance of specific food triggers with possible reintroduction of these foods over time. This study prompts further prospective investigation into the temporal evolution of GS in IBD. PMID: 29216767 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
