Bilateral implantation of small-aperture IOLs can be a successful strategy for presbyopia correction, according to a study. To compare visual acuity after contralateral vs. bilateral implantation of the IC-8 IOL (AcuFocus) in cataract patients, Robert E. Ang, MD, of Asian Eye Institute, Philippines, implanted 10 patients bilaterally with the IC-8 and 10 patients monolaterally with the IC-8 in one eye and a monofocal IOL in the other. At 12 months postoperatively, all 20 patients achieved 20/32 or better binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity and corrected distance visual acuity at all.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted unanimously to recommend that healthy U.S. adults at occupational risk for Ebola be vaccinated against the virus using Merk’s V920 vaccine. The committee voted that healthy, nonpregnant, nonlactating adults aged 18 years or older at potential occupational risk for Ebola should receive pre-exposure vaccination with the Merck V920 vaccine. This population includes individuals responding to an outbreak of the Zaire strain of the Ebola virus, laboratory and support staff at biosafety-level 4 facilities who are handling.

Almost half of transgender youths reported that they had intentionally avoided divulging their gender identity at one point to a health care provider, even in situations where it would have been important for health reasons. Gina M. Sequeira, MD, MS, an adolescent medicine fellow at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and colleagues surveyed 204 youths aged 12 to 26 years who identified as transgender. Three-quarters (78%) said they had voluntarily disclosed their gender identity to a health care provider outside of a gender clinic at some point in their lives, whereas 46% (n = 70)

Antipsychotic medication may alter brain structure, according to study findings published in JAMA Psychiatry. “In psychotic disorders, and when psychosis is present in nonpsychotic disorders, antipsychotics remain an essential treatment,” Aristotle N. Voineskos, MD, PhD, of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, and colleagues wrote. “[Although] our data show that antipsychotics may cause adverse changes to brain structure, they also demonstrate that illness relapse may cause similar effects. When psychosis is present, the life-threatening effects of untreated.

A cognitive test identified individuals aged 100 years or older who had high levels of cognitive performance, according to study findings published in JAMA Network Open. Researchers posited that investigation of these individuals may reveal the mechanisms underlying resilience against cognitive decline risk factors. “Dementia incidence increases exponentially with age, to an estimated 40% per year in individuals aged 100 years,” Nina Beker, MSc, of Alzheimer Center Amsterdam, and colleagues wrote. “Results from cross-sectional studies indicated that approximately 50% of.

Published results showed failure of total elbow arthroplasty due to infection led to a higher likelihood of revision failure and a greater number of subsequent operations compared with failure due to other etiologies. Researchers retrospectively analyzed the charts of 46 patients who underwent revision total elbow arthroplasty between 2006 and 2016 with a minimum 2-year follow-up. Researchers categorized patients into cohorts by etiology of primary implant failure and compared failure rates, time to second revision and average number of additional revisions among cohorts. Researchers defined.

MARRAKECH, Morocco — A new ablation algorithm for transepithelial PRK effectively reduces haze formation and allows for the correction of even high myopia and myopic astigmatism without the use of mitomycin C, according to a study. “The use of topical mitomycin C has been considered mandatory in order to prevent corneal haze, especially in deeper ablations. In collaboration with Schwind, we developed for the Amaris laser a new algorithm that enhances surface smoothness, reducing inflammation even in deep ablations,” Emilio Torres-Netto, MD, said at the European Society of.

Vaping changes the microbiome of the mouth, making those who vape more prone to infections and inflammation, according to research published in iScience. “Our study suggests that vaping electronic cigarettes causes shifts in the oral environment and highly influences the colonization of complex microbial biofilms, which raises the risk for oral inflammation and infection,” Deepak Saxena, PhD, professor of basic science and craniofacial biology at the College of Dentistry at New York University, said in a press release. The study authors explained that the mouth is a “gateway”

The aorta may be an exercise-responsive plastic organ that remodels in aging competitive endurance athletes, researchers reported in JAMA Cardiology. In a cohort of endurance athletes (mean age, 61 years; 60% men; 52% rowers; 48% runners) with at least 20 years of experience, clinically relevant aortic dilation was found in 21% of participants (31% of men; 6% of women). Dilation was defined as an aortic diameter at sinuses of Valsalva or ascending aorta of at least 40 mm. Researchers found that approximately 24% of participants had at least one z score of 2 or more, indicating an aortic.

Adults with type 2 diabetes who lost enough weight to enter diabetes remission were also able to achieve normal beta-cell function. It was the top story in endocrinology last week. Another top story showed that adding an investigational, once-daily pill to optimized insulin therapy reduced HbA1c among adults with type 1 diabetes. Read these and more popular stories in endocrinology below: Weight-loss that remits type 2 diabetes normalizes beta-cell function Adults with type 2 diabetes who lose enough weight to enter diabetes remission are also able to recapture normal beta-cell capacity,
