ConclusionThis study indicates that having access to a known midwife might have an impact on women’s birth experience. This study was limited by its small sample size and further research would need to randomise fearful women to counselling or continuity of care to determine the contribution of each to reducing fear.

Authors: Albisinni S, Pretot D, Al Hajj Obeid W, Aoun F, Quackels T, Peltier A, Roumeguère T Abstract INTRODUCTION: The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are established markers of systemic inflammation. Moreover, anemia is a known adverse prognostic factor and reduced haemoglobin to platelet ratio (HPR) seems associate to poor outcomes in urothelial cancer. Aim of the current study was to explore the prognostic value of NLR, HPR and PLR in patients harboring localized RCC. Materials and Methods 184 patients undergoing partial and radical nephrectomy for renal ma...

ConclusionThese findings indicate that the HFS Weanling group animals were better able to cope with the dietary challenge of an HFS diet than the HFS Adult group animals. Interestingly, when assessing various serum pro-inflammatory markers, no significant differences were detected between the HFS Adult and HFS Weanling groups. Although details regarding the mechanisms underlying an increase in knee joint damage scores in the HFS Adult group remain to be elucidated, these findings indicate that dietary exposure time maybe less important than the age at which a HFS diet is introduced. Moreover, increases in serum pro-inflamm...

This study evaluated the metabolic parameters and texture features of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) for the diagnosis and differentiation of endometrial atypical hyperplasia (EAH), EAH with field cancerization (FC), and stage 1A endometrial carcinoma (EC 1a). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the metabolic parameters of PET/CT in 170 patients with diagnoses confirmed by pathology, including 57 cases of EAH (57/170, 33.53%), 45 cases of FC (45/170, 26.47%), and 68 cases of EC 1a (68/170, 40.0%). Then, the texture features of each tumor were extracted and co...

It is estimated that 2.5 million emergency department (ED) visits annually in the United States are attributed to sports-related knee injuries.1 An additional 184,000 ED visits in the United States each year are attributed to occupational knee injuries.2 About 25% of adults older than 55 years suffer from chronic knee pain, an increasing prevalence due to an aging population and increased prevalence of obesity.3

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Journal of OrthopaedicsAuthor(s): Nikola Lekic, Jonathan Sheu, Hayley Ennis, Nathan Lebwohl, Motasem Al-MaaiehAbstractThe Jefferson fracture is a burst-type fracture to the atlas first described in 1919, characterized by anterior and posterior fractures of the weak C1 ring caused by a sudden axial load to the vertex of the skull. Here we report a Jefferson fracture caused by head trauma due to mid-flight turbulence in an unrestrained 56-year-old male airline passenger. Imaging revealed a comminuted burst fracture of the atlas with an avulsion fracture of the transverse...
