Evidence Supporting the Management of Medical Conditions During Long-Duration Spaceflight: Protocol for a Scoping Review.

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Mar 29;10(3):e24323. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Faculty of Medicine, Université Laval, Quebec, QC, Canada.

Background: Future long-duration space exploration missions, such as traveling to Mars, will create an increase in communication time delays and disruptions and remove the viability of emergency returns to Earth for timely medical treatment. Thus, higher levels of medical autonomy are necessary. Crew selection is proposed as the first line of defense to minimize medical risk for future missions; however, the second proposed line of defense is medical preparedness and crew member autonomy.

Repeated rotation of a toric implantable collamer lens: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Mar;100(10):e24986

Department of Refractive Surgery Center, Weifang Eye Hospital, Weifang, Shandong, China.

Introduction: Implantable collamer lens have been used widely worldwide, and have been accepted by more and more doctors and patients due to good safety, stability, and effectiveness. However, there is still a problem of crystal rotation. The large angle rotation (over 10°) would weaken the original astigmatism correction effect and even induce irregular astigmatism, seriously affecting the visual quality of patients. Read More
