Training and retaining mental health professionals: The Romanian experience in the European Union

ConclusionAlthough in a trend toward improvement of health services, "brain drain" has been and continues to be a massive phenomenon among Romanian psychiatrists, mainly driven to Western-European countries due to financial reasons, various shortcomings in overall infrastructure, and because of the lack of continuous professional and personal development opportunities. As the world is currently facing an unprecedented mental health crisis, steps must be taken to improve psychiatric training, retain psychiatrists in Romania, and provide better national mental health services.

CONCLUSIONS: Both PRP and triamcinolone 40mg/mL injections provided cost-effective treatments from healthcare and societal perspectives. Overall, PRP injections were the dominant treatment with the greatest NMB for recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis over the time horizon of five years.PMID:35031496 | DOI:10.1016/j.jse.2021.12.010

Chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) – daily pain in the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves that lasts for six months or longer – contributes to approximately 21% of worker disability issues in this country and costs $500 billion annually from lost wages, treatment and medications, according to a study published by Johns Hopkins University. In an effort to develop a more effective strategy against this debilitating condition, a team of doctors and researchers at Wake Forest School…

AbstractA recent article entitled “Full‑endoscopic (bi‑portal or uni‑portal) versus microscopic lumbar decompression laminectomy in patients with spinal stenosis: systematic review and meta‑analysis” written by Pairuchvej et al. (Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 30(4):595–611, 2019) published in “European Journal of Ortho paedic Surgery&Traumatology ” has aroused our great interest. The authors concluded that compared with minimally invasive decompression surgery, full endoscopic spinal surgery had better pain relief (back pain and leg pain) in the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis an...

In this study we aimed to investigate the expression of one of these genes – cell-adhesion molecule contactin-3.MethodsReverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction for the contactin-3 gene (CNTN3) was performed in resected cortical tubers from TSC patients with drug-resistant epilepsy (n = 35, age range: 1–48 years) and compared to autopsy-derived cortical control tissue (n = 27, age range: 0–44 years), as well as by western blot analysis of contactin-3 (n = 7 vs n = 7, age range: 0–3 years for both TSC and contro...

ConclusionGiven the high initial burden of the participants, the sustainability of the prevention-oriented intervention is considerable. Nevertheless low-threshold interventions such as telephone or online counselling could be useful after approximately 25  weeks. The intervention is unique for the social insurance system in Germany. The design allows a causal interpretation of the treatment effects despite the small number of cases. Further studies should particularly address effect heterogeneity.

AbstractAge-related muscle mass and strength decline (sarcopenia) impairs the performance of daily living activities and can lead to mobility disability/limitation in older adults. Biological pathways in muscle that lead to mobility problems have not been fully elucidated. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) infiltration in muscle is a known marker of increased fiber membrane permeability and damage vulnerability, but whether this translates to impaired function is unknown. Here, we report that IgG1 and IgG4 are abundantly present in the skeletal muscle (vastus lateralis) of  ~ 50% (11 out of 23) of older adults (> &th...

Trauma remains one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide and is the leading cause of death in children and young adults.[1,2] Prehospital patients suffering from trauma have been given special scrutiny by being in the “first hour quintet,” with the other four emergencies being cardiac arrest, acute coronary syndrome, respiratory failure, and stroke. [3] All these conditions require critical care in specialized facilities. However, current trends in European and Australasian politics dictate a centralization o f these tertiary care facilities,[4] and this centralization might prolong the transp...
