Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...

By Dr. Binita Ashar, director of the division of surgical devices in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health Choosing to obtain a breast implant, whether for augmentation or reconstruction, is a deeply personal choice, from the initial decision to undergo breast implant surgery to the size, material and surface texture. These types of decisions should be discussed between a patient and their provider in a transparent and balanced way with clear information about the benefits and risks of the breast implants and the procedure. As a public health agency, we play an important role in ensuring that patients ...

Many malignant cancers, including breast cancer, have a propensity to invade bones, leading to excruciating bone pain. Opioids are the primary analgesics used to alleviate this cancer-induced bone pain (CIBP) but are associated with numerous severe side effects, including enhanced bone degradation, which significantly impairs patients' quality of life. By contrast, agonists activating only peripheral CB1 receptors (CB1Rs) have been shown to effectively alleviate multiple chronic pain conditions with limited side effects, yet no studies have evaluated their role(s) in CIBP. Here, we demonstrate for the first time that a per...

 Back in February, MD+DI got the low down from an obstetrics and gynecologist specialist in Lubbock, TX on a new vaginal rejuvenation device that her patients have been raving about.  Now it seems the manufacturer of that particular device, along with other companies selling laser- or energy-based devices for vaginal rejuvenation failed to get FDA's blessing. "We've recently become aware of a growing number of manufacturers marketing 'vaginal rejuvenation' devices to women and claiming these procedures will treat conditions and symptoms related to menopause, urinary incontinence, or...

The Erector Spinae Plane (ESP) block, which was first described by Forero in 2016, is currently receiving a lot of attention [1,2]. The ESP block anesthetizes the ventral and dorsal rami of thoracic and lumbar nerves. The technique involves injection a local anesthetic in the plane between the erector spinae muscle and the spinal transverse processes. It has been reported to induce effective analgesia for several surgeries, especially thoracic surgery [1]. The ESP block has also been reported to induce effective analgesia in the perioperative pain management of breast surgeries [3]; however it was not reported to achieve a...

We presently forget 98% of everything we experience. That will go away in favor of perfect, controllable, configurable memory. Skills and knowledge will become commodities that can be purchased and installed. We will be able to feel exactly as we wish to feel at any given time. How we perceive the world will be mutable and subject to choice. How we think, the very fundamental basis of the mind, will also be mutable and subject to choice. We will merge with our machines, as Kurzweil puts it. The boundary between mind and computing device, between the individual and his or her tools, will blur. Over the course of the ...

Purpose: Bone is a common site of metastatic breast cancer in women and is associated with reduced quality of life and skeletal related events (SREs): pathological fracture, spinal cord compression, hypercalcaemia and bone pain. Current guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, London Cancer Alliance and American Society of Clinical Oncology, all differ in their recommendation of bone-modifying treatment. They all advocate treatment every 4 weeks, but give no indication of optimum length of treatment [1 –3].
