Stewardship science academic alliances (ssaa)

The objectives of the SSAA Program are to: ? Support the U.S. scientific community by funding research projects at universities (see Section IV.A for eligibility requirements) that conduct fundamental science and technology research that is of relevance to Stockpile Stewardship; ? Provide opportunities for intellectual challenge and collaboration by promoting scientific interactions between the academic community and scientists at the DOE/NNSA laboratories; and ? Develop and maintain a long-term recruiting pipeline to the DOE/NNSA laboratories by training and educating the next generation of scientists in the fundamental research of relevance to Stockpile Stewardship and thereby increasing the visibility of the DOE/NNSA scientific activities to the U.S. academic communities. C. Technical Scope and Topical Research Areas The DOE/NNSA will consider applications for university-led research in one or more of the fundamental areas of physical sciences outlined below. Consideration will be given to proposals that emphasize experimental efforts, although proposals to advance theory that have a strong, demonstrable connection to experimental efforts will be considered. All proposed work to be funded through this SSAA program announcement is to be UNCLASSIFIED. No proposals for CLASSIFIED work will be accepted. 1. Topic Research Area # 1: Properties of Materials under Extreme Conditions and/or Hydrodynamics Research proposals are solicited in the area of fundamental pro...

Conclusions: Our results show that psychological factors are more strongly related to pain levels prior to non-invasive treatment in patients with osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint than patient characteristics and X-ray scores, which implies the important role of these factors in the reporting of symptoms. More research is needed to determine whether psychological factors will also affect treatment outcomes for patients treated non-invasively for osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONPain is the most important complaint for patients with osteoarthritis of the first...

Authors: Herman A, Whitesell R, Stewart RL, Lowe JA Abstract Clavicle fractures' treatment recommendations are based on displacement. The goal of this paper is to determine upright clavicle radiographs at initial presentation changes timing and method of treatment. Retrospective study in a level 1 trauma center. 356 patients with clavicle fractures were reviewed. Patients with only supine radiographs (Group 1, 285 patients) were compared to patients with supine and upright radiographs (Group 2, 71 patients). Higher proportion of fractures in the upright vs supine radiographs were displaced 100% or more of the clavi...

AbstractPurposeTo validate the reliability of Berjano and Lamartina classification system of surgical planning in cases of de novo degenerative lumbar scoliosis (DNDLS) combined with degenerative segment disease and identify factors contributing to curve progression.MethodsFifty-four cases of type I or II DNDLS were retrospectively reviewed. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) was assessed using visual analogue scale (VAS) scores for the back and leg, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) scores. Radiographic parameters were obtained from X-rays. Improvements in HRQOL were confirmed...

CONCLUSION: In this study, femoroacetabular impingement syndrome was present in 3% of Caucasians ages 20-49. Further research is needed to develop consistent criteria for assessing hip symptoms, physical signs, and hip joint morphology, and to better understand the relationships between them.

The objective of this article is to assess the effect of screw migration and fracture associated with anterior cervical plating on long-term radiographic and clinical outcomes. Background Data: Screw migration and breakage detected after anterior cervical discectomy/corpectomy and fusion with plating may cause various implant-related complications and reduce solid fusion rate. However, little is known about their long-term prognosis. Materials and Methods: Medical records and radiographic data of 248 consecutive patients who underwent anterior cervical discectomy and fusion or anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion ...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the frequency of pneumothorax following orthognathic surgery and describe its clinical presentation. A retrospective analysis of a hospital database was carried out on consecutive patients with normal presurgical clinical assessment, laboratory findings, and chest X-ray who underwent orthognathic surgery from January 2007 to September 2018 in the Department of Oral and Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. Two patients (0.038%), 1 male (age 20 years) and 1 female (age 32 years), complained of respiratory difficulty an...

This study aims to define the first web space length (FWSL) as a new radiologic parameter, which may reflect patients' subjective satisfaction and be associated with American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score as an objective parameter. PATIENTS AND METHODS: One hundred and fourteen patients (11 males, 103 females; mean age 43.4±13.2 years; range, 18 to 70 years) who underwent distal osteotomy between April 2010 and January 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were radiographically evaluated with pre- and postoperative standing foot anteroposterior and lateral X-rays. Hallux valgus angles (H...

Conclusion: Considering the radiological report, no significance was found for the observed changes. Atelectasis was not the most frequently observed change. The predisposing factors for these changes were extreme prematurity, low weight, male sex, a poorly positioned endotracheal tube and the use of invasive mechanical ventilation.

Discussion Foreign bodies are common problems for young children particularly ages 2-4 years who will mouth many objects and aspirate or swallow them. Children will also place foreign objects in other body orifices such as ears or noses. It is also not uncommon that young girls will inadvertently have toilet paper caught in the vaginal area during hygiene. Many of these foreign bodies may work their way out naturally not causing any problems, or may come to attention later because of chronic problems such as a foul-smell or discharge. Older children may tell adults that they have placed a foreign body in an orifice and thu...
