Experiencing Anencephaly: A Parent's Perspective (S782)

Congenital anomalies are the leading cause of infant death in the United States. Nearly 25% or parents who experience perinatal loss develop long-term adverse psychosocial outcomes resulting from intense grief, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder, and suicidal ideation. The majority of perinatal loss research has focused on miscarriage and stillbirth, necessitating investigation into the impact of lethal congenital anomalies.

ConclusionsThe implication of these results is that policies aimed at reducing inequalities between residential neighborhoods are likely to beneficially affect all racial/ethnic groups but are not sufficient in reducing racial/ethnic disparities in intergenerational transmission of socio-economic status.

Conclusions: The study results emphasize the relevance of attachment orientation to caregiving relations in health-related contexts and call for awareness of the effect that level of depression combined with attachment orientation can have during hospitalization.Clinical implications: Assessing attachment orientation and depression in hospitalized elders might be useful for identifying older adults at risk for insufficient informal support during hospitalization.

Authors: Kikutani K, Itai J, Ota K, Chosa K, Yamane Y, Shime N Abstract Bronchial artery aneurysms are a rare but potentially life-threatening complications because of the massive hemothorax or hemoptysis that occurs with ruptures. A 79-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital because of the sudden onset of back pain, syncope, and subsequent hypotension. Computed tomography showed a left bronchial artery aneurysm with bilateral hemothorax and hemomediastinum. Transcatheter bronchial artery embolization failed because of the anatomical location, and she went into cardiopulmonary arrest. Cardiopulmonary resusci...

Authors: Zakir HM, Masuda Y, Kitagawa J Abstract Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) is a polymodal receptor channel, which plays an important role in pain transduction. It is important to understand the functional expression of this channel under neuropathic pain (NP) conditions. A novel method was used to investigate the dynamics of functional expression of this channel on regenerated neurons under NP conditions following trigeminal nerve injury using a combination of a permanently charged sodium channel blocker (QX-314) and a TRPV1 agonist (capsaicin; QX-CAP). The combination was originally introduc...

This study conducted experiments to assess (1) whether neural activity, indicated by Fos expression in an NRM that has experienced MM injury, is affected by the stress of repeated forced swim tests (FST); and (2) whether the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine administered daily after an FST could affect the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM. Results revealed that the stress from repeated FSTs significantly increased the number of Fos-positive neurons in an NRM that had been affected by MM injury. Fluoxetine inhibited increases in the number of Fos-positive neurons in the NRM that occurred as a result...

Authors: Schellinger J, Cable K, Bond M, Campbell KM Abstract The United States is facing a shortage of physicians for minorities and patients in disadvantaged areas. Many medical schools have pipeline programs to promote the interest of minority students in medicine. The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University established the Brody RISE program. Recruitment efforts targeted schools within Pitt County, NC. Students participate in interactive STEM activities and campus tours. Laupus Health Sciences Librarians developed interactive activities that engage critical thinking and teach anatomy and medical hi...

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: Biological ControlAuthor(s): Rhoda B. deJonge, Ian M. Jones, Robert S. Bourchier, Sandy M. SmithAbstractWhen an insect candidate is identified for classical biological control, the first step is to identify its fundamental host-range. An insect’s fundamental host range, however, is typically broader than its ecological host range. This discrepancy can lead to ‘false positives’ in host testing and hamper the development of potential agents. Here, we propose a novel tool for interpreting host-range tests and identifying ‘false positives’...

Prevalence and risk factors for development of subscapularis and biceps pathology in shoulders with degenerative rotator cuff disease: a prospective cohort evaluation. J Shoulder Elbow Surg. 2020 Mar;29(3):451-458 Authors: Mehta SK, Teefey SA, Middleton W, Steger-May K, Sefko JA, Keener JD Abstract BACKGROUND: The prevalence of subscapularis and long head of biceps (LHB) in relation to the presence and severity of posterosuperior (PS) rotator cuff disease is not known. METHODS: Subjects with asymptomatic rotator cuff tears were enrolled for this prospective longitudinal study (n = 354) and f...
