Freedom and authority in the clinical diary(*).

Freedom and authority in the clinical diary(*). Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Dec;74(4):367-80 Authors: Erős F Abstract The paper discusses some philosophical, ethical and political-philosophical implications of Ferenczi's Clinical Diary, with special regard to the concepts of freedom and authority. These topics are already present in Ferenczi's early writings that explicitly deal with social and political issues, the central concept of which is "individual socialism". The paper also discusses (and publishes in Appendix) two short manuscripts by Ferenczi, written probably in 1920, which attempts to parallel psychoanalysis with Marxism, and with liberal socialism, respectively. It is shown that in 1932, the last year of his life, Ferenczi avoids using political and ideological concepts directly in his Diary, but, in the spirit of his earlier writings, he proposes a balance between "ruthless capitalism and fanciful egalitarianism". Finally, the significance of Utopia in Ferenczi's thinking is discussed. PMID: 25434890 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractThe assessment of heavy metal contents in environmental sectors is important to estimate the carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic doses and risks for the mankind associated with it. The present work deals with the assessment of the risk exposure related to heavy metal contents in groundwater and soil samples to two different age groups via three different transits, i.e., ingestion, inhalation and dermal. The concentrations of heavy metals (Zn, Cd, Cu, Pb and Cr) were measured in the villages of lower Himalayas of Reasi district by using microwave plasma atomic emission spectrometer. The calculated mean contamination f...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Mahesh ShettyAbstractOnce a pelvic mass is identified on an ultrasound examination, the important next step in the differential diagnostic work up is to determine its origin. Most lateral pelvic masses in women are ovarian in origin, and the distinction between ovarian and non-ovarian mimics of ovarian cancer is critical for appropriate clinical and surgical management. Adnexal masses detected on ultrasound can be further characterized by MRI when needed. Superior contrast resolution, multiplanar imaging, characteristic sig...

Thank you for this letter, Dr. Tez. In our multivariable model, use of an appendix bag was an independent predictor of decreased intra-abdominal abscess with an odds ratio of 0.6. This correlates to a 40% reduced odds of intra-abdominal abscess in the group without use of an appendix bag. The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program variable “preoperative sepsis” is defined as the presence of systematic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis, or septic shock.1 The variable “preoperative sepsis” used in our analysis includes these in a collapsed binary variable.

Thank you for your letter, Dr. Childers and Dr. Maggard-Gibbons. The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) appendectomy procedure-targeted database was first released in 2016. NSQIP uses medical chart review to determine whether a specimen bag was used before appendix removal.1 As pointed out by the authors and presented in their own institutional NSQIP data, it is possible that appendix bags are not documented in all cases but logged in other parts of the electronic medical record, thus leading to measurement error.

nandes Mendonça Today, elasmobranchs are one the most threatened vertebrate groups worldwide. In fact, at least 90% of elasmobranch species are listed in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, while more than 40% are data-deficient. Although these vertebrates are mainly affected by unsustainable fishery activities, bycatch is also one of the major threats to sharks and batoids worldwide, and represents a challenge for both sustainable fishery management and for biodiversity and conservational efforts. Thus, in this study, DNA barcode methodology was used to identify the bycatch compo...

ConclusionA submucosal cavity filled with acellular matter, which were probably disintegrated epithelioid structures, and calcifications were found in the ascending colon, while no intestinal cell atypia or dysplasia was found. The case cannot be classified under any previously presented diagnosis.

ConclusionThe diagnosis of TBP had been complicated by the presence of CP in the reported case. The underlying CP not only preclude the diagnosis of TBP, but also produced symptoms that mimicked a condition requiring surgery.
