Differential Diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) has a wide range of symptoms and clinical features that overlap with other diagnostic categories. Diagnosis is important because different disorders respond to different forms of treatment. Differential diagnosis is particularly relevant for distinguishing BPD from bipolar spectrum disorders, requiring a careful evaluation of affective instability and hypomania. BPD may also be confused with major depression, schizophrenia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) standards were updated in 2011 to recommend end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) monitoring during moderate sedation, which is now common practice in IR. Studies show EtCO2 monitoring improves detection of respiratory depression and hypoxemia. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of respiratory depression and hypoxemia from oversedation during IR procedures before and after implementation of EtCO2 monitoring.

The InCircle bipolar ablation device has allowed for the ablation of tumours>3 cm (3-7cm), using a no-touch, ‘outside in’ approach. A limitation of this device is its relative unsuitability for interventional radiology use as the diameter of the probe needle is>2mm in the larger devices. The aim of this study was to create ablations via a rotational technique using a new minimally invasive probe whilst maintaining ablation size and sphericity.

In conclusion, in this manuscript we demonstrate for the first time that the extrinsic pathway of apoptosis and pore formation is also involved in the cell death caused by the co-expression of the gef and apoptin genes. Our results suggest that co-expression of gef and apoptin genes induces an increase in post-apoptotic necrotic cell death and could be a valuable tool in the design of new antitumor strategies focused on the enhancement of the immune response against cancer cell death.

AbstractEndometriosis is a gynecological condition affecting 10% of women in reproductive age. High rates of depression and anxiety are observed in these patients. The mechanisms underlying endometriosis-induced behavioral alterations are still elusive. Animal models provide a useful tool to study the temporal sequence and biological pathways involved in this disease and comorbid states. Here, we sought to characterize time-related behavioral alterations in rats submitted to endometriosis model (EM) induced by peritoneal auto-transplantation of uterine tissues weekly for three weeks. Corticosterone stress reactivity, oxida...

This study investigated the effect of the decoction Xiaoyaosan (XYS) against depressive behavior through the regulation of intestinal flora. Fifty-two healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups (i.e., control, model, XYS, and fluoxetine). The latter three groups were subjected to 21 days of chronic restraint stress to produce the stress depression model. Rats in the XYS and fluoxetine groups received intragastric administration of XYS and fluoxetine, respectively. The behavioral changes of the rats were observed after 21 days. Stool specimens were sequenced using the 16S rDNA high-throughput me...

ConclusionThe present research showed that dentist in Saudi Arabia are experiencing significant level of psychological and physical hazard. Though infection control measures were well practiced among respondents, procedures for radiation protection were ignored by many. Based on the results it is noteworthy that effective strategy for lessening occupational hazards should be enhanced among dentist in Saudi Arabia.

“Be proactive not reactive, for an apparently insignificant issue ignored today can spawn tomorrow’s catastrophe.” – Ken Poirot Do you ever have one of those mornings where the battle against annoying minutiae begins before you’re even truly awake? One of those days where you feel the illusion of control fully slipping away. You try to grasp and pull it back, but you really have no control over this day or its outcome, at all. We dread these types of days, don’t we? The control freak in me gets uncomfortable thinking about it. Even the Meet The Parents movies make me unsettled, because a...
