This study was a grounded theory examination of the interactions among gender, social context, cultural displacement, and a causal model for Japanese women's distress experiences. The resulting theoretical model revealed the familial and social dynamics traditional to Japanese culture developed feelings of poor self-worth common amongst study participants. This negative perception of self was exacerbated by gendered challenges of expatriation and intense pressures within this region's Japanese migrant community. These findings show the need for increased contact with at-risk populations to understand their causal models an...

Patients suffering from moderate or severe hemophilia A are particularly vulnerable to trauma injury, being on high risk of immediate exsanguination. Due to a rareness of this disease, there are very few reports about the management of severe injuries of the affected patients. No guidelines for the management of burn trauma of hemophiliac patients have been yet established. Since, to our knowledge, this is the first case report about a successful treatment of a severely burned hemophiliac, requiring intensive care, long-time intubation, and multiple epifascial necrosectomies of third grade wounds, the authors are proposing...

Abstract Heterotopic ossification (HO) can result from a single severe injury, repeated microtrauma, central nervous system injury, extensive burns, or muscular bleeding due to hemophilia. Although relatively rare in childhood and extremely rare within a joint, HO should be included in the differential diagnosis of an intra-articular mass when indicated by clinical, radiographic, and histologic findings. Here, we report a posttraumatic intra-articular HO of the shoulder joint in a 15-month-old boy without underlying hematologic disease. Intra-articular HO in a healthy infant has not been reported previously in th...

The train line from mainland Kobe is a marvel of urban transportation. Opened in 1981, Japan’s first driverless, fully automated train pulls out of Sannomiya station, guided smoothly along elevated tracks that stand precariously over the bustling city streets below, across the bay to the Port Island. The island, and much of the city, was razed to the ground in the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995 – which killed more than 5,000 people and destroyed more than 100,000 of Kobe’s buildings – and built anew in subsequent years. As the train proceeds, the landscape fills with skyscrapers. The RokkĊ mounta...
