Studies of brain size of children classified with ADHD appear to reveal smaller brains when compared to ‘normal’ children. Yet, what does this mean? Even with the use of rigorously screened case and control groups, these studies show only small, average group differences between children with and without an ADHD classification. However, academic textbooks used in the Netherlands often portray indi vidual children with an ADHD classification as having a different, malfunctioning brain that necessitates medical intervention. This conceptualisation of ADHD might serve professional interests, but not necessarily th...

I’m such a mess!  I can’t do the simplest things. Why am I so stupid? I’m too sensitive. Why am I so lazy? Everyone else can do this without any problems. Why can’t I?   I’ll never accomplish that. How does she get everything done?   Many women with ADHD wake up with these kinds of thoughts, and they follow them throughout the day.

Background: Opioids are commonly used after posterior spinal instrumented fusion (PSIF) for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Prescription opioids use can potentially lead to misuse, abuse, dependence, and overdose death. Prolonged opioid use has not been extensively studied in the postoperative AIS population. The purpose of this study is to identify risk factors associated with prolonged opioid use after PSIF for AIS. Methods: A large insurance database was queried for AIS patients undergoing PSIF. Patients with prolonged postoperative opioid use were defined as those receiving new prescriptions for an opioid m...

Authors: Wernersson R, Johansson J, Andersson M, Jarbin H Abstract Aim: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common diagnosis within child- and adolescent psychiatry. Waiting lists and delayed care are major issues.

Method: Patients 6-12 years with positive screen for uncomplicated ADHD at the brief child and family phone interview (BCFPI), a routine clinical proced...
