One young person in England is told they have an STI every FOUR MINUTES

Fifteen people aged between 15 and 24 were told they had chlamydia or gonorrhoea every hour in England from 2016-to-2017. Untreated, these can cause everything from infertility and arthritis.

This study investigated the relationship of American Indian boarding school attendance and chronic physical health. We hypothesized boarding school attendance would be associated with an increased number of chronic physical health problems. We also examined the relationship between boarding school attendance and the 15 chronic health problems that formed the count of the chronic health conditions. American Indian attendees had a greater count of chronic physical health problems compared with nonattendees. Father's attendance was independently associated with chronic physical health problems. Attendees were more likely to h...

Abstract Scaphoid fracture is the most common carpal fracture. Nonunion rate has been reported around 10 to 15% of scaphoid fractures. Risk factors for scaphoid nonunion are known as location, displacement, poor vascularity, time to treatment etc. The goals of surgical treatment for scaphoid nonunion are to achieve bony union, to correct carpal deformities and also to prevent progressive carpal instability and arthritis. Scaphoid nonunion can cause scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse (SNAC) which is a pattern of progressive degenerative radiocarpal and midcarpal arthritis secondary to posttraumatic pathomechanics ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Midcarpal arthrodesis is a treatment of choice in patients with midcarpal arthritis. Traditionally a four corner fusion has been favoured, however recent research has shown improved results when the triquetrum and scaphoid are excised. There is no clear evidence as to which remaining bones should be fused or which implants should be used. The purpose of this study is to compare the biomechanics of midcarpal arthrodesis after scaphoid and triquetrum excision, using memory staples or cannulated screws, in recognised construct patterns. METHODS: 36 identical sets of carpal bones were 3D prin...

Conclusions: Fifth CMC fusion using either K-wires or plate and screws showed no significant difference in stiffness, peak load, and energy to peak load. These results suggest the 2 methods provide similar biomechanical stability.

This study presents a case series study of a new technique for ligament balancing wherein the collateral ligament is detached from its origin and rotated (twisted) around its longitudinal axis to tighten the ligament before the origin is reattached to its original position. The surgical technique for collateral ligament tightening during TKR was performed on 6 patients with a deformed knee caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The range of motion, knee society score, and laxity of the patients’ knee joint, after 7 months to 13 years of follow-up, were evaluated. The technique was successful, achieving go...

CHELMSFORD (CBS) – Infertility can be a painful experience for couples trying to start a family. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotion that Shawn and Shannon McNamee know well. For more than a year, Shannon injected herself hundreds of times. They tried several rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Nothing worked. “You would get really hopeful and optimistic, then it would crash. The results came back negative every time,” Shawn told WBZ-TV. The McNamees decided to adopt and now their living room is filled with toys and their hearts with love. Their son Logan is happy and curious and in no way int...
