Neurobiology of Sexual Assault and Osteopathic Considerations for Trauma-Informed Care and Practice.
Authors: Cuevas KM, Balbo J, Duval K, Beverly EA Abstract Sexual assault is a traumatic event with potentially devastating lifelong effects on physical and emotional health. Sexual assault is associated with gastrointestinal, neurologic, and reproductive symptoms, as well as obesity, diabetes, and chronic pain. With 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men experiencing some form of unwanted sexual violence in their lifetime, sexual assault is a significant public health problem that necessitates attention in the medical community. This review discusses relevant literature on the neurobiologic changes that occur as a consequence...

Measuring Adherence and Outcomes in the Treatment of Patients With Multiple Sclerosis.
Authors: Hao J, Pitcavage J, Jones JB, Hoegerl C, Graham J Abstract Context: Both adherence and outcomes are more difficult to measure in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) than in patients with diseases such as hypertension, for which most medications are taken orally and surrogate outcomes (eg, blood pressure) are routinely collected. Objectives: To characterize the adherence and outcomes of patients with MS within a large integrated health system and to assess the relationship between adherence and outcomes. Study Design: Retrospective review of adherence and health care utilization outcomes via elect...

Musculoskeletal Disorders in Ophthalmologists After Simulated Cataract Operation: A Pilot Study.
Conclusion: The majority of participants in the surgical simulation session had an increase in degree of somatic dysfunction, whereas the majority in the control session had a decrease in degree of somatic dysfunction. Although the sample size of this pilot study was too small to show statistical significance, a trend was observed, and further study is warranted.

Benign Breast Conditions.
Authors: Bodine AM, Holahan B, Mixon A Abstract Breast masses and nipple discharge are common symptoms that lead women to seek medical care. Many of the findings on subsequent examination are benign. When evaluating a patient who presents with breast masses or nipple discharge, it is useful to take a holistic approach to evaluating the patient, including a detailed history, structural and directed physical examination, and, if indicated, laboratory studies, diagnostic imaging, and biopsy. The goal of this review is to assist physicians in understanding the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of benign breast cond...

Role of Antiplatelet Therapy in Stroke Prevention in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation.
Authors: Manaktala R, Kluger J Abstract Patients with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of having a cardioembolic stroke. The use of oral anticoagulation is now well established to prevent strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation and a CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years [2 points], diabetes mellitus, prior stroke/transient ischemic attack or thromboembolism [2 points], vascular disease, age 65 to 74 years, and sex category) score of greater than 1, beyond sex. However, the role of antiplatelet therapy, specifically aspirin in low-risk patients or as an alternative to ...

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment for the Management of Adjacent Segment Pathology.
Authors: Lewis DD, Summers GK Abstract Adjacent segment pathology is an adverse effect of spinal fusion that precipitates accelerated spinal degenerative changes at vertebral segments contiguous with the fused vertebrae. The accelerated degeneration related to ASP can be challenging to manage, as it can lead to conditions such as radiculopathy and can create the need for reoperation. In the present case, a 50-year-old woman with a previous spinal fusion presented with a 1-year history of progressive low back pain, lumbar radiculopathy, and sciatica. Osteopathic manipulative treatment was used to manage her pain, an...

Challenging Case of Parotitis: A Comprehensive Approach.
Authors: Patel P, Scott S, Cunningham S Abstract The diagnosis and management of parotitis can be challenging. Patients often present with pain and edema in the neck, jaw, head, and ear due to congestion of the gland. Parotitis is typically caused by an infection within the parotid gland and surrounding lymph nodes, and the infection can spread to nearby cervical fascial planes and cause major complications if not managed successfully. Specific guidelines for the outpatient management of parotitis are limited, and outpatient treatment failures are common, requiring inpatient therapy with multiple broad-spectrum ant...

Measuring Multidimensional Empathy: Theoretical and Practical Considerations for Osteopathic Medical Researchers.
Authors: Martingano AJ, Martingano D Abstract Osteopathic physicians are increasingly recognizing the importance of empathy for improving patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. This review advocates for a multidimensional perspective of empathy, encompassing both affective and cognitive empathy, and highlights situational and dispositional factors relevant to the curtailment of empathy. A review of the utility of self-report, behavioral, and physiological measures that researchers may use to quantify empathy in further research is also provided. The authors encourage members of the osteopathic medical professi...

Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency: Establishing Common Osteopathic Performance Standards in the Transition From Medical School to Residency.
Authors: Basehore PM, Mortensen LH, Katsaros E, Linsenmeyer M, McClain EK, Sexton PS, Wadsworth N Abstract Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) are measurable units of observable professional practice that can be entrusted to an unsupervised trainee. They were first introduced as a method of operationalizing competency-based medical education in graduate medical education. The American Association of Medical Colleges subsequently used EPAs to establish the core skills that medical students must be able to perform before they enter residency training.

Management of Postaxial Polydactyly in the Neonatal Unit.
Authors: Rathjen NA, Rogers TS, Garigan TP, Seehusen DA Abstract Postaxial type B polydactyly is the presence of a supernumerary digit attached by soft tissue in a pedunculated fashion to the fifth digit. In the present case, a newborn with bilateral postaxial type B polydactyly underwent suture ligation to remove the supernumerary digit, but multiple ligation attempts were required. Ultimately, residual tissue remained bilaterally, but it did not seem to be painful. A comprehensive review of the literature revealed no clear recommendation on treatment options for patients with postaxial polydactyly. Although sutur...
