Solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) induces the production of vitamin D (VD), but it also causes erythema and skin cancer among other diseases. The amount of UVR to get benefit and avoid harm is unknown. Some principles were proposed to provide accessible information on how to avoid overexposure to the Sun. They are (1) the Shadow Rule (SR); (2) the UV Index (UVI); and (3) the Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide (5S) steps. This work discusses these principles in the tropics, considering measurements of solar UVR, total ozone column, and cloudiness. Indeed, the SR leads to overexposures. The UVI is adequate for cloudless skies, bu...

The excess relative risk (ERR) of mortality for circulatory disease among nuclear workers was reanalyzed by taking into consideration the annual dose as the dose rate using publicly available epidemiological data of the Hanford site dedicated to the cohort study of nuclear workers in the US, the UK, and Canada. Values of the dose rate (cut-points) were chosen at 2 mSv y−1 intervals from 2 to 40 mSv y−1, and risk estimates were made for 32,988 workers, considering the doses accumulated below and above each cut-point to have different effects. Similarly to that in the previous study for cancer by Sasaki et al., e...

Conclusions: Patients with hematologic tumors had an increase in body weight, height, and fat mass, which was not identified in the solid tumor group. The positive correlation between anthropometry (triceps skinfold thickness and arm muscle circumference), deuterium oxide dilution, and bioelectric impedance analysis shows the applicability of anthropometry in clinical practice.RESUMO Objetivo: Verificar mudan ças no estado nutricional de crianças com câncer antes e após o tratamento quimioterápico e avaliar a correlação entre diluição de óxido de deut&eac...

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 objective of this study was to evaluate the characteristics and oncologic outcomes of a single institution series of chondrosarcoma of pelvis and extremities in patients who were 21 years or younger. Between January 2006 and December 2016, we operated on 249 chondrosarcomas of the pelvis and extremities. Eleven (4%) of these were 21 years or younger. The mean age was 18 years (range 14–21 years). There were eight males and three females. Four occurred in the pelvis. The other sites were humerus (three) and one each in the scapula, clavicle, metatarsal and proximal femur. There were five primary chondrosarcomas an...

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...
