Podcast: How Toxic Masculinity Also Hurts Men

The phrase “sacred masculine” can evoke images of patriarchal religiosity.  But it has a different meaning for today’s guest. For Miguel Dean, the sacred masculine is an ideal, embodied by a man who accepts all of his emotions, understands the connectedness of humanity, and is devoted to helping others. Join us as Miguel explains how the sacred masculine is increasingly being recognized as a new model of masculinity to replace the old ideas of what it meant to be a man. This new man embraces all of his humanity and recognizes that part of this is the courage to feel, express and honor the full spectrum of human emotions. He knows that everything in life is connected and that his wholeness is catalyzed by his commitment to service.

Conclusion: Experiencing defibrillator shocks was associated with psychological distress in ICD recipients; the relationship was fully mediated by ICD-related concerns and perceived control. These results suggest that clinicians should routinely assess ICD-related concerns and perceived control in patients with ICD. Research is needed to develop and test interventions to decrease emotional distress related to the ICD shock experience.

Aspects concerning patient adherence to anti-TNFα therapy in psoriasis: A decade of clinical experience. Exp Ther Med. 2019 Dec;18(6):4987-4992 Authors: Mocanu M, Toader MP, Rezus E, Taranu T Abstract Non-adherence to psoriasis treatment has an important impact in controlling chronic disease evolution and the occurrence of systemic comorbidities. Biologic therapy represents a revolutionary treatment, many of the undesirable psychological and socio-economical consequences of conventional topical or systemic therapies being avoided. Nevertheless, the discontinuation of biological therapy may occur ...

Authors: Fang L, Xu Z, Lu J, Hong L, Qiao S, Liu L, An J Abstract Hypothyroidism is associated with profound left ventricular dysfunction. Triiodothyronine (T3) supplementation may improve cardiac function after ischemic reperfusion (I/R) injury. In the present study, the effect of T3 on major calcium cycling proteins and high-energy phosphate content during I/R was evaluated. Isolated perfused rat hearts were divided into 5 groups: Sham Control (Sham, n=10), Control (n=8), T3 10 nM (T3-10, n=10), T3 25 nM (T3-25, n=10) and T3 50 nM (T3-50, n=10). T3 was administrated for 60 min before 30 min of ischemia and 120 mi...

Authors: Yang H, Wang Y, Gao J, Wang P, Jiang X, Tian D, Hu H Abstract A 67-year-old male patient had a history of repeated urinary tract infections for numerous years. X-ray examination revealed a large calcific density in the pelvic cavity, with a diameter of 10.4 cm and a CT value of ~792.9 HU. On MRI of the pelvis, the lesion displayed with extremely low signals. The inside of the stone had a concentric ring shape with a slightly higher signal and the patient was diagnosed with a large left seminal vesicle calculus. Laparoscopic surgery was selected to treat the stone. The patient recovered rapidly and the symp...

This study aimed to explore whether quantitative surface antigen [hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)] can be used as a surrogate marker of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA to predict hepatitis B transmission before the first hepatitis vaccine dose in infants born to hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)-positive pregnant women. Background: Currently, HBV transmission persistently occurs worldwide, especially in infants born to e antigen (HBeAg)-positive highly viremic mothers. However, due to high cost, the extensive use of viral load testing to identify these high-risk mothers is limited. Materials and Methods: In total of 275 ...

We present the case of a patient with tubulovillous adenocarcinoma of the anal canal which relapsed after chemoradiation. The patient refused salvage surgery and was treated with definitive electrochemotherapy under general anesthesia. Tumor electroporation performed with the insertion of three needles in the recurred site was preceded by an intravenous bolus of bleomycin. After the administered treatment, the patient showed a complete clinical response. A year after electrochemotherapy, the patient is free from local disease with excellent preservation of the sphincter function. Electrochemotherapy may be considered as an...
