Linea Arcuate Hernia Following Transversus Abdominis Release Incisional Hernia Repair.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan;82(1):85-88

Divisions of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, Department of Surgery, West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown, WV.

Open abdominal surgery continues to be most commonly complicated by postoperative herniation at the incision line. In 2012, Novitsky et al described a novel hernia repair technique that utilized a transversus abdominis release coupled with a posterior (retrorectus) component separation (TAR-PCS) of the ventral abdominal wall. Early reports attest to the versatility and low recurrence rate of this technique, particularly when repairing large and complex defects. Read More

Implementation of an Sexually Transmitted Disease-Screening Protocol in an Emergency Department: A Quality Improvement Project to Increase STD Screenings in Young Adults Aged 15-29 Years With Urinary Symptoms.

Adv Emerg Nurs J 2018 Oct/Dec;40(4):304-311

Memorial Medical Center, Modesto, California; and Johns Hopkins University, School of Nursing, Baltimore, Maryland.

Urinary symptoms, such as dysuria, urinary urgency, frequency, and suprapubic pain, are frequent complaints made in the emergency department (ED; ). Although it is easy to relate urinary symptoms with a urinary tract infection (UTI), both UTI and sexually transmitted disease (STD) can share same urinary symptoms that mask each other from detection. It presents challenges for ED clinicians to precisely distinguish between two infections, causing misdiagnosis and mistreatment, resulting in patient morbidity and high health care costs. Read More
