Authors: Hale AC, Bohnert KM, Ganoczy D, Sripada RK Abstract OBJECTIVE:: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has placed increased emphasis on the availability and use of evidence-based psychotherapies (EBPs) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, many individuals do not complete a full course of EBP. The current study aimed to quantify the percentage of veterans receiving adequate EBP in VA hospitals and identify factors related to treatment completion. METHODS:: A national sample of 16,559 VA patients who began cognitive processing therapy (CPT) or prolonged exposure (PE) during fiscal yea...

CONCLUSION: Dural injury or exposure in mastoidectomy may lead to cerebrospinal fluid otorrhoea or meningoencephalic herniation years later. Congenital, spontaneous and traumatic temporal bone defects may present similarly. Middle cranial fossa dural repair, transmastoid multilayer closure and subtotal petrosectomy with middle-ear obliteration were successful procedures. Subtotal petrosectomy with middle-ear obliteration offers advantages over middle cranial fossa dural repair alone; soft tissue closure is more robust and is preferred in situations where hearing preservation is not a priority.

In this study, we evaluated the influence of body mass index on axial and overall MSP severity (0-10 numeric rating scale) 6 weeks, 6 months, and 1 year after MVC among 917 European Americans who presented to the emergency department for initial evaluation. After adjusting for an array of sociodemographic factors, obesity (particularly morbid obesity) was an independent risk factor for worse MSP after MVC (eg, RR 1.41 [95% CI 1.11, 1.80] for moderate or severe MSP 6 months after MVC among morbidly obese vs normal weight MVC survivors). Interestingly, substantial effect modification was observed between obesity risk and a g...
