Dental Needs and Management of Children With Special Health Care Needs According to Type of Disability
CONCLUSION: Prior to treatment, patients have high expectations of implant therapy. In general, these expectations are met. Most studies revealed that women have higher expectations than men. The variety of applied study designs impaired comparability of results. Thus, standardised methods for measuring expectations of implant-based therapy are eagerly needed.

ConclusionIt is the first COPCORD study in an urban native population living at high altitude in Peru. The population affected by chronic rheumatic disease preferred professional rather than traditional care; this population had access to limited medical services. Impaired functional capacity measured by HAQ was associated with advanced age.ResumenObjetivoEstimar la prevalencia de manifestaciones musculoesqueléticas y discapacidad en la población urbana habitante a gran altura de Juliaca, Puno, Perú; utilizando el cuestionario COPCORD y HAQ-DI.MétodosSe realizó un estudio transversal en m...
This report was the first to establish, beyond dispute, the presence of tuberculosis in the Americas before the arrival of Europeans. Here, we revisit the ‘Nasca Boy’ from a bioarchaeology of care perspective. Contextualising the original study’s results within what is known of contemporary lifeways, we apply the bioarchaeology of care methodology in considering the Nasca Boy’s experience of living with tuberculosis; the type of care he required and how this may have evolved over a period of deteriorating health; and what such caregiving may suggest both about social organisation within his communit...
ConclusionsA successful model was built predicting ODI MCID. Most important predictors were not modifiable surgical parameters, indicating that baseline clinical and radiographic status is a critical factor for reaching ODI MCID.Level of EvidenceLevel II.
ConclusionsPatients with AO Type C distal radius fracture can expect similar functional outcomes when treated with Fix or VA. Reduced early postoperative could be brought about for the patients with VA.Type of study/level of evidence: Therapeutic II.
One in four adults reported they have a disability that impacts major life activities, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
New government research finds 61 million U.S. adults have a disability that impacts a major part of their life
In 2016, using the HHS six-question set on the BRFSS, one in four (61 million) U.S. adults reported any disability; nearly 6% reported hearing disability. Adults with disabilities, particularly those aged 18-44 and 45-64 years, experienced disparities in health care access by disability type.
We report this work to discuss the conduct of the forensic pathologist and to prove the causality relationship between the assault and the physical injuries.
As Cambridge biotech Synlogic begins human trials, pre-clinical data released this week shows that a probiotic pill containing a beneficial strain of E.Coli could reduce the root problem of a hereditary disease that causes intellectual disabilities by 40 percent. Synlogic Inc (Nasdaq: SYBX) is developing probiotic medications to treat an array of metabolic disorders, including the hereditary disease phenylketonuria (PKU). The disease causes harmful levels of amino acids to build up, leading to permanent…
