Development of a Point-of-Contact Technique to Measure Adenosine Triphosphate: A Quality Improvement Study
ConclusionPatients with HFpEF have increased metabolic demand and impaired myocardial bioenergetics. Thus, identifying a method to measure ATP that is quick and accurate is imperative to accurately assess cellular energy production in this population. Point-of-contact measures, such as ATP, are needed for precision-guided treatment. Data from this study provides the first step toward developing evidence for health policies related to managing fatigue. (Source: Annals of Medicine and Surgery)

Trends of Mastectomy and Breast-Conserving Surgery and Related Factors in Female Breast Cancer Patients Treated at King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 2009-2017: a Retrospective Cohort Study
ConclusionMastectomy has a much higher prevalence than BCS in our study mainly due to advanced tumor stage at the time of diagnosis. This emphasizes the urgent need for early detection of breast cancer to move towards BCS, with education and increasing awareness of breast cancer and the surgical options, especially that it is more common in a significantly younger population in our area.

Are Interventional Radiology and Allied Specialities Neglected in Undergraduate Medical Education? A Systematic Review
ConclusionsFew studies report teaching initiatives in interventional radiology and other interventional specialities, reflecting the poor relevant motivation and knowledge amongst medical students. Simple interventions e.g. introductory lectures and simulation sessions spark interest in students and also improve knowledge as proven in the case of interventional radiology. Standardisation of such efforts via a suggested framework, Strategy Development Framework for Interventional Radiology, can further optimise such outcomes. (Source: Annals of Medicine and Surgery)

Quality of life outcomes of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis after functional endoscopic sinus surgery, prospective cohort study
ConclusionsOutcomes from this study suggest that patients with U CRSsNP having a preoperative SNOT-22 scores between 10 and 19, and patients with B CRSsNP having a preoperative SNOT-22 scores between 10-19 or 20-29 had no chance of achieving an MCID improvement after FESS. Also, preoperative rhinologic symptoms and preoperative psychological dysfunction domains of SNOT-22 are helpful tools to predict improvement after FESS unlike the unilateral character of CRS.
