Factors Associated With Return-to-Work Following Cervical Spine Surgery in Non-Worker's Compensation Setting

Conclusion. Our study identifies the various factors associated with a lower likelihood of RTW at 3 months after cervical spine surgery in the non-worker's compensation setting. This information provides expectations for the patient and employer when undergoing cervical spine surgery. Level of Evidence: 3

Authors: Van Slambrouck J, Vlasselaers J, Devos B Abstract Peritoneal tuberculosis is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. Considering the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis in a low prevalence setting can be vital for the further clinical management in selected patients.In a young male with migration background, presenting with generalised abdominal pain, computed tomography revealed ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening and enlarged mesentery lymph nodes. Computed tomography also revealed a distal ureteral calculus at the right vesico-ureteral junction. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a nodul...

In this work, two dimensional p-type MoS2 nanosheets are introduced on the surface of p-type ZnO derived from metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) to produce ZnO@MoS2 core/shell heterojunctions as a novel acetone sensor, showing a great enhancement of acetone response, about two orders of magnitude than that of pure Z...

Long-term physiological hyperglycemia will aggravate the degree of non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) proteins. Because the abnormal changes of non-enzymatic process can cause a series of pathological variation, NEG proteins have attracted more and more attention. Mass spectrometry (MS) is an indispensable and powerful analytical tool for the qualitative and quan...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: TechnovationAuthor(s): Jonathan D. LintonAbstractGeneralizability is the goal for scientists (both social and natural). In the social sciences invoking generalizability is more problematic as it is often based on assessment of a mainstream population, but may not apply to groups outside of the mainstream. This is a significant challenge to developing appropriate policy and interventions suitable for Other groups. An example is given of how this concern was overcome through consideration of the Voice Of the Customer (VOC) and utilizing cognitive maps to consider the...

Using data from 2017 release of the American Community Survey, I construct a household residential location choice model and value climate amenities from the trade-offs among housing cost, climate amenities, and other locational attributes in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). On average, a retired household is willing to pay $1209 for a 1○C drop in average summer temperature, $1114 for a 1○C inc...

We present a review of the classifications, pathophysiology, and evidence-based guidelines for planning and preventive measures, as well as best practice recommendations for both routine and urgent therapeutic management of diabetes and glycemic complications. These recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence and balance between the benefits and risks or burdens for each recommendation.
