In conclusion, both elastic stable intramedullary nailing and external fixation can achieve satisfactory clinical and radiographic outcomes in children with acute Monteggia fractures. However, the rate of residual pain and less satisfactory clinical appearance was higher in patients managed by external fixation compared to those treated by elastic stable intramedullary nailing. According to our results, elastic stable intramedullary nailing should be used as primary treatment option in children with acute Monteggia fracture requiring surgical management.

The aim of this study was to explore the clinical features and surgical treatment methods of unstable midfoot injuries in children. Eleven children with severe unstable midfoot injuries admitted to Jishuitan Hospital, Beijing, from June 2009 to October 2016 were enrolled, including seven patients with Lisfranc injuries and four patients with Chopart injuries. All Lisfranc injuries had radiographic data from the healthy sides, and radiographs of the affected sides showed that all injured Lisfranc joints separated more than 3 mm compared with the healthy sides. The treatment methods employed a joint-spanning external fixator...

The use of telehealth is gaining momentum in providing obstetric care. Telehealth through various platforms provides obstetricians and gynecologists and other providers of obstetric and postpartum care with the tools to better facilitate prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum encounters. Telehealth helps facilitate consultation with specialists and subspecialists in maternal-fetal medicine in a team-based fashion to improve quality and safe obstetric practices in a fragmented obstetric care delivery system, especially in rural access communities. Telehealth can be beneficial especially in the postpartum period for breastfee...

Perinatal care, including the management of mental health issues, often falls under the auspices of primary care providers. Postpartum depression (PPD) is a common problem that affects up to 15% of women. Most women at risk can be identified before delivery based on psychiatric history, symptoms during pregnancy, and recent psychosocial stressors. Fortunately, there have been a variety of treatment studies using antidepressants, nonpharmacologic interactions, and most recently, allopregnanolone (Brexanolone) infusion that have shown benefits. The most commonly used screening scale, Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, a 1...

Purpose of review Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death and with a dismal 5-year survival of 10%. Poor survival of pancreatic cancer is mostly due to its presentation and diagnosis at a late stage. The present article aims to update clinicians with recent progress in the field of early detection of pancreatic cancer. Recent findings Pancreatic cancer screening is not recommended in the general population due to its low prevalence. In this review, we discuss high-risk groups for pancreatic cancer, including inherited predisposition to pancreatic cancer, new-onset diabetes, mucinous pancreatic cys...

We describe and contrast the strengths of precision medicine with Western medicine, and complex trait genetics with Mendelian genetics. Classic genetics focuses on highly penetrant pathogenic variants in a single gene believed to cause or confer a high risk for well-defined phenotypes. However, a minority of disorders have a single gene cause. Further, even individuals with identical Mendelian disease-associated genotypes may exhibit substantial phenotypic variability indicative of genetic and environmental modifiers. Still, most diseases are considered complex traits (or complex diseases). Recent findings New insights ...
