WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — Sagittal-pelvis mobility varies in patients who undergo total hip replacement; therefore, universal acetabular component position safe zones do not exist, according to a presenter at Orthopedics Today Hawaii. “[Sagittal-pelvis] mobility varies from patient to patient,” Andrew M. Shimmin, MBBS, FRACS, said during his presentation. “Single, acetabular component safe zones do not exist. This makes light why dislocations frequently [happen] when components are oriented within that historical [Lewinnek] safe zone.” He said the concept of the Lewinnek.

Lipocine announced top-line interim results from an ongoing study of LPCN 1144, an oral prodrug of bioidentical testosterone designed for the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, according to a press release. “The interim results strongly suggest the potential benefit of LPCN 1144 therapy for patients with [nonalcoholic fatty liver disease] and support further study to validate a histopathologic benefit in patients with NASH,” Stephen A. Harrison, MD, medical director of Pinnacle Clinical Research, San Antonio, said in the release. “Additionally, testosterone therapy.

The efficacy of spironolactone in patients with HF with preserved ejection fraction was consistent across the range of kidney function, although adverse events were higher in those with chronic kidney disease, researchers reported. “These data supported use of spironolactone to treat HFpEF patients with advanced chronic kidney disease only when close laboratory surveillance is possible,” Iris E. Beldhuis, BSc, from the cardiovascular division of the department of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and colleagues wrote. The researchers analyzed 1,767 patients from the.

WHO expressed “severe concern” today over the conditions in the Rukban settlement in Syria, located near the border of Jordan, where approximately 40,000 people remain stranded. In a statement, the organization requested immediate access to the settlement to examine the health conditions there, as well as provide medical treatments and supplies and to evacuate any patients who are critically ill. According to WHO, harsh winter conditions have led to several deaths in the settlement, where mostly women and children are children staying, and health care facilities have been poorly.

WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — When performing surgical treatment of humeral shaft fractures, surgeons may experience positive outcomes with nailing or plating, according to a presenter at Orthopedics Today Hawaii. In his presentation, William M. Ricci, MD, noted the advantages of plating include high union rates, low complication rates, low rates of shoulder dysfunction and reoperation, and identification of the radial nerve with the posterior approach. Nailing also has advantages of limited dissection, being a closed technique, ease of insertion and it is a load-sharing device, according to Ricci.

WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — In preparation of total hip arthroplasty, surgeons should determine limb length from physical examination and discussion with the patient, according to a presenter at Orthopedics Today Hawaii. In his presentation, Thomas P. Schmalzried, MD, said that to help determine limb length, surgeons should know the patient’s spine and know that patients with a stiff spine are at an increased risk of dislocation. Schmalzried also said to check for pelvic obliquity and hip contracture and ask patients how their limb length feels to them. “You need to manage their.

The first genetic risk locus for spontaneous coronary artery dissection has been identified, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. “In this study we investigated whether this factor was also associated with [spontaneous coronary artery dissection], and the answer is yes,” David Adlam, DPhil, senior lecturer in the department of cardiovascular sciences at University of Leicester in England, said in a press release. “This genetic factor — the A allele of the genetic variant rs9349379 located in the PHACTR1 gene — is.

Essilor announced its establishment of the Myopia Taskforce to create a recommended and preferred method for comprehensive myopia care as part of the Myopia Initiative in Action program. “Myopia is more than simply a refractive error and it is increasing at an alarming rate,” task force member John Lahr, OD, FAAO, said in a press release from Essilor. “While refractive error remains the primary reason that most individuals seek eye examinations, we must view and treat myopia with a more comprehensive approach going forward.” Fourteen vision experts have signed on to.

Supplementing the Mediterranean diet with dairy foods improved mood and processing speed in Australian adults aged 45 years or older who were also at risk for CVD and dementia, according to a study published in Nutritional Neuroscience. “Results from our study are in agreement with previous research on both the Mediterranean diet and the impact of dairy food consumption on heart health,” Karen Murphy, PhD, APD, practicing dietician and senior lecturer at the University of South Australia, told Healio Family Medicine. “We also know that dairy foods may also improve blood.

It’s summer time. Writers and readers naturally turn to lighter fare, intellectual sangria in a red Solo cup to the winter’s Sinskey Claret in Riedel — RIP, Dr. Sinskey. Growing up in New England, whatever beach reading we might have done was bookended by the sports pages in the Boston Globe. Sportswriters taught us all how to write. Each week the great Bob Ryan would pen a Sunday column filled with little snippets of his thoughts about the state of sports and the world in general. No one with literary aspirations dreamed of writing the Great American Novel; we all just.

The other day I was hanging around “Sky Bar,” the tech station at SkyVision. Do you have kids? When I am quietly standing there, I am kind of like the parent driving the school carpool: After a short while you become one with the furniture, and the kids talk around you as if you were not even there. My technician teammates were chatting about dry eye patients at the time. This is not all that unusual, in that at least one-third of our patients are active dry eye patients. You can learn a lot about what it is like to care for dry eye by listening to your technicians because at the.

WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — At Orthopedics Today Hawaii, John D. Kelly IV, MD, said most rotator cuff tears are repairable. He said reducing rotator cuff tears is similar to reducing a fracture and that surgeons need to recognize tear patterns. He said when tears are not repairable, total shoulder arthroplasty and suprascapular reconstruction are good options.

A first-in-man study shows that renal nerve stimulation appears to be safe and effective along the renal artery and yields large variation in temporary changes in BP per patient and per anatomic location. The change in systolic BP to electrical stimulation has the potential to be a diagnostic tool for identifying an appropriate patient population for renal sympathetic denervation, and the responsiveness at different locations could serve as treatment targets along the renal artery that could boost the treatment’s success, the researchers wrote. The prospective, multicenter, open-label,
