This study compares the rate of bone integrity and bone resorption of the coracoid process, and the clinical outcomes after the Bristow procedure in 61 shoulders and the Latarjet procedure in 44 shoulders with at least one year of follow-up. CT scans showed 98% of bone union of the coracoid process within 3 months after the Latarjet procedure, but only 78% of bone union, 15% of delayed union, and 7 % of fracture of the coracoid in the Bristow procedure, 6 months after surgery.

We analyzed and compared pitching motion between United  States and Japanese pitchers. The subjects were 19 Japanese professional and semi-professional pitchers with ball speeds over 120 km / hr and 19 pitchers of minor league (MiLB) with similar age and competition level. The throwing motion of each pitcher from Japan and the US was captured using 7 an d 12 high-speed cameras, respectively. Data were entered in Bio-Pitch and analyzed. Height, body mass, and ball velocity were all significantly larger in US pitchers.

CONCLUSIONS Pulmonary hypertension occurred in 25% of the 182 interstitial lung disease patients and was negatively associated with deteriorated lung functions (specifically VC%, FVC%, and DLCO parameters). ANA level was not associated with the prognosis of pulmonary hypertension of patients with interstitial lung disease, and it did not significantly affect the correlation between PASP and pulmonary functions. Thus, ANA level did not seem to be a necessary indicator of pulmonary hypertension, and a more effective treatment method for pulmonary hypertension of patients with interstitial lung disease is urgently needed. ...

This study aimed to examine area differences in the prevalence of and factors associated with frailty. This cross-sectional study included metropolitan (eastern and western areas), suburban (districts A and B), and rural areas of Japan (n = 9182, woman 50.9%). Frailty was defined by using a standardized questionnaire comprising three subcategories (fall, nutritional status, and social activities). The prevalence of frailty in the five areas was 14.2% to 30.6% for men and 11.5% to 21.4% for women. The areas with a high frailty prevalence had a significantly lower nutritional status or social activity, or both. Compared to t...

AbstractFractional flow reserve (FFR) is an established method for diagnosing physiological coronary artery stenosis. A method for computing FFR using coronary computed tomography (CT) images was recently developed. However, its calculation requires off-site supercomputer analysis. Here, we report the preliminary result of a method using simple estimation of boundary conditions. The lumen boundaries of the coronary arteries were semi-automatically delineated using full width at half maximum of CT number profiles. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of the blood flow was performed using the boundary conditions of a fixed...

BOSTON (CBS)- It happens to every parent. Your child wakes up with a cough, a rash, or pink eye and now you’re forced to figure out if you should send them to school or daycare, or keep them at home.

Today, 1989 may be most associated with Taylor Swift: It is the album that won her a second Grammy for Album of the Year. Not only that, it happens to be the year Swift was born--such a long, long time ago! People under 35 have no personal memory of 1980s pop culture, which is ironic since Swift's album in part pays homage to it. In the real 1989 (no offense to Swift and the 10 co-producers who made the album), all sorts of revolutions took place: Mr. Gorbachev tore down that pesky wall, for example. America's greatest antagonist, the Soviet Union, collapsed in 1989. Brazil conducted its first democrat...

Discussion Cerumen or ear wax is produced in the outer third of the external auditory canal. It contains exfoliated squamous epithelium along with waxy substances. It is controlled by autosomal alleles and has two main phenotypes – “wet” cerumen which is dominant and common in Caucasian and African populations, and “dry” cerumen which is recessive and found more often in Asian populations. Cerumen protects the external canal and has some antibacterial and antifungal properties including against strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeroginosis, and Candida albicans. Staphylococcus aure...
