Proposal on the Diagnostic Criteria of Definite Isolated Otolith Dysfunction.

J Audiol Otol 2018 Dec 20. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Background And Objectives: : Dizzy patients with abnormal otolith function tests, despite a normal caloric response, are defined as having specific (isolated) otolith organ dysfunction. This study was performed to compare the differences in clinical presentation between isolated otolith dysfunction (iOD) patients with lab- and Sx-based iOD group and lab-based iOD symptoms.

Subjects And Methods: : The medical records of 23 iOD patients with normal caloric response but abnormal cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP), ocular VEMP, or subjective visual vertical were reviewed. Read More

Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Their Roles in the Biosynthesis of Macrolide Therapeutic Agents.

Biomol Ther (Seoul) 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Biological Sciences, Konkuk University, Seoul 05025, Republic of Korea.

The study of the genus is of particular interest because it produces a wide array of clinically important bioactive molecules. The genomic sequencing of many species has revealed unusually large numbers of cytochrome P450 genes, which are involved in the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites. Many macrolide biosynthetic pathways are catalyzed by a series of enzymes in gene clusters including polyketide and non-ribosomal peptide synthesis. Read More

States Look to Reinsurance to Lower Health Insurance Costs.

NCSL Legisbrief 2018 Dec;26(46):1-2

National Conference of State Legislatures.

(1) Section 1332 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) allows states to apply for reinsurance waivers--which can alter certain ACA requirements for health insurance plans--to help make coverage more affordable. (2) As of 2017, more than 10 million people were enrolled in a health insurance plan in the individual market. (3) To date, seven states have successfully adopted reinsurance programs at minimal cost to the state and have seen premiums reduced as much as 20 percent annually. Read More

Job sick leave: Detecting opportunistic behavior.

Health Econ 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Economics, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.

We utilize a large administrative dataset of sickness leave in Italy (a) to investigate whether private firms are more effective than the public insurer in choosing who to monitor and (b) to study the correlation between potentially opportunistic behavior and the observable characteristics of the employee. We find that private employers are more likely to select into monitoring employees who are fit for work despite being on sick leave, if the public insurer is not supported by any data-driven tool. However, the use of a scoring mechanism, based on past records, allows the public insurer to be as effective as the employer. Read More

Optimal surgical treatment in patients with T1b gallbladder cancer: An international multicenter study.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Dec;25(12):533-543

Department of Surgery and Cancer Research Institute, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: There is no consensus on the optimal treatment of T1b gallbladder cancer (GBC) due to the lack of evidence and the difficulty of anatomy and pathological standardization.

Methods: A total of 272 patients with T1b GBC who underwent surgical resection at 14 centers with specialized hepatobiliary-pancreatic surgeons and pathologists in Korea, Japan, Chile, and the United States were studied. Clinical outcomes including disease-specific survival (DSS) rates according to the types of surgery were analyzed. Read More

Intra-articular Corticosteroids for Knee Pain-What Have We Learned from the Equine Athlete and Current Best Practice.

J Knee Surg 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Division of Sports Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

The use of intra-articular corticosteroids for traumatic arthritis and osteoarthritis (OA) is common in the horse. The beneficial and deleterious effects of the principal corticosteroids used betamethasone esters (Celestone [Soluspan], methylprednisolone acetate [Depo Medrol], and triamcinolone acetonide [TA] [Vetalog or Kenalog]) have been defined for the horse. While TA has both disease-modifying as well as symptom-modifying effects, methyl prednisolone acetate has deleterious effects on the articular cartilage. Read More

Rabbit Model of Extending Knee Joint Contracture: Progression of Joint Motion Restriction and Subsequent Joint Capsule Changes after Immobilization.

J Knee Surg 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Orthopedics, The Second Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, People's Republic of China.

This study aimed to develop a rabbit model of knee contracture in extension and investigate the natural history of motion loss and time-dependent changes in the joint capsule after immobilization. We immobilized the unilateral knee joints of 32 rabbits by maintaining the knee joint in a plaster cast at full extension. Eight rabbits were euthanized at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks after casting, respectively, and the lower extremities were disarticulated at the hip joint. Read More

The Effects of Resection Technique on Implant Migration in Single Radius Posterior-Stabilized Total Knee Replacement.

J Knee Surg 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, London Health Sciences Centre University Hospital, London, Ontario, Canada.

The purpose of the present study was to measure the effects of gap balancing and resection techniques on migration of a single total knee replacement implant design. A total of 23 patients (24 knees) were recruited on referral to either a surgeon performing gap balancing or a surgeon performing measured resection and followed prospectively. All patients received a fixed bearing, posterior stabilized total knee replacement implant of a single radius femoral component design with cement fixation, and all aspects of care outside of resection technique were identical.

Is There a Difference between Cemented and Uncemented Femoral Stem Extensions in Revision Knee Arthroplasty?

J Knee Surg 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Chapel Hill Orthopedics Surgery and Sports Medicine, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

A stem is usually recommended for the femoral component in revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for reasons of alignment, fixation, and bone loss. However, the optimal method of fixation for the femoral component stem remains controversial. We queried the prospective revision TKA database of one surgeon and performed a clinical and radiographic evaluation of 84 knee revisions in which a femoral component stem extension was implanted.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Internal Medicine 1, Shimane University Faculty of Medicine, Japan.

Purpose: Serum uric acid (UA) level may affect bone metabolism because it has an anti-oxidative effect. However, whether serum UA level is associated with a fracture risk in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is unclear. We thus aimed to clarify the association between serum UA and bone parameters in T2DM. Read More

An Update on Addison's Disease.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Medicine III, University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany.

Addison's disease - the traditional term for primary adrenal insufficiency (PAI) - is defined as the clinical manifestation of chronic glucocorticoid- and/or mineralocorticoid deficiency due to failure of the adrenal cortex which may result in an adrenal crisis with potentially life-threatening consequences. Even though efficient and safe pharmaceutical preparations for the substitution of endogenous gluco- and mineralocorticoids are established in therapy, the mortality in patients with PAI is still increased and the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is often reduced.PAI is a rare disease but recent data report an increasing prevalence.

"Erb's point" is the fifth point of auscultation for the heart exam, located in the third intercostal space close to the sternum. It has sometimes been attributed to famous German neurologist Wilhelm Heinrich Erb (1840 - 1921), but without historical evidence. Erb's focus on neurology suggested that the auscultation point may have been confused with other points in the neck named after Erb. Read More

We retrace the little that is known about his life and then focus on his adventures in the history of ideas, namely the scientific revolution he brought about for humoral pathology. Following the landmark study of Pagel (1982) we identify two of his conceptions of disease: diseases as fruits and diseases as minerals, discovered by a new science, a "scientia separationis".
