Prenatal alcohol use puts mothers and their children at risk for complications during pregnancy, birth, and the neonatal periods. This paper describes a currently implemented community-based pilot program to reduce drinking among pregnant mothers. The program has worked in collaboration with case managers from Crow Wing County Social Services. Participants were required to provide daily breath samples with monetary incentives on alcohol-negative sample submissions. The program has treated four pregnant mothers so far, with an average of 94 percent compliance rate and no alcohol-positive breath samples...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is responsible for 80 to 85 percent of all primary renal malignancies. In the United State%, there are about 63,000 new cases and almost :14,000 deaths per year from RCC. Surgical resection of localized RCC can be curative but many patients eventually recur. Immunotherapy appears to be a promising new modality for many malignancies, including RCC. Nivolumab, a specific immunotherapy agent indicated for advanced RCC, may restore antitumor immunity and allow for greater progression-free survival by targeting proteins that negatively regulate T cell immunity...

Psychiatric treatment prior to 1955 seemed to be at a standstill. All kinds of treatments, including surgical ones, were used ineffectively. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, a new treatment -chlorpromazine - created a worldwide revolution. Here is what we saw in Delaware. It was not much different in the rest of the world. Patients improved and were rapidly dischargedfrom mental institutions causing workforce reductions. I was sitting on a state employee job application evaluation committee and witnessed these events...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if patients elect molecular testing over diagnostic surgery or repeat fine needle aspiration for indeterminate thyroid nodules. Can ThyroSeq v2.1 molecular testing reduce diagnostic thyroid surgery and rule out cancer? STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review Setting: Single institution, single-practice surgeon. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Fifteen month retrospective review of indeterminate thyroid nodules that went on to ThyroSeq v2...

Crohn's disease is a disorder characterized by transmural inflammation which can potentially affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the perianal area. Cohn's disease is a systemic disease characterized by a relapsing remitting course, with variable intestinal and extra-intestinal complications. Abdominal and pelvic abscesses are not an uncommon complication of Crohn's disease occurring in 10-30 percent of all patients. We present the case of a 21-year-old male with Crohn's disease presenting with a massive abdominal abscess, whose diagnosis was delayed given lack of typical symptoms...

Stump appendicitis is a delayed complication of appendectomy. Patients present with symptoms similar to an initial presentation for appendicitis. Diagnosis is often delayed as history of appendectomy often precludes focused workup for an appendiceal source of infection. A 39-year-old female presented to our emergency department with worsening abdominal pain and fever. Se had a past surgical history of a laparoscopic appendectomy approximately 14 months prior to presentation. During her admission, she was diagnosed with ruptured stump appendicitis by computerized tomography (CT) imaging...

BACKGROUND: Accurate assessment of cardiac output (CO) is essential for the hemodynamic assessment of aortic valve area (AVA). Estimation of oxygen consumption (VO2) and Thermodilution (TD) is employed in many cardiac catheterization laboratories (CCL) given the historically cumbersome nature of direct continuous VO2 measurement, the "gold standard" for this technique. A portable facemask device simplifies the direct continuous measurement of VO2, allowing for relatively rapid and continuous assessment of CO and AVA...

Percutaneous transcatheter closure of a patent foramen ovale (PFO) remains challenging when femoral venous approach is not available. We describe the successful closure of a PFO using the right internal jugular venous approach and a catheter delivery system with a reshaped tip in a patient with a PFO, recurrent stroke, recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding, bilateral deep venous thrombosis and thrombosed bilateral inferior vena cava filter.

BACKGROUND: Review the radiologic findings and clinical significance of tension pneumoperitoneum. CASE REPORT: Imaging case presented to radiology during patient's prolonged and complicated hospital stay. CONCLUSIONS: Tension pneumoperitoneum associated with barotrauma is a rare, but potentially life threatening complication of mechanical ventilation. The radiologist should be able to recognize the imaging findings associated with tension pneumoperitoneum in order to assist in diagnosis of this potentially reversible entity...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric pedestrian motor vehicle-associated of injuries correlated with a particular census tract's trauma is a significant public health concern for children. demographic composition. GIS mapping software was used We aimed to use geographic information systems (GIS) to examine the relationship between motor vehicle pedestrian injuries in children and the demographics of the region in which they occurred for the state of Delaware. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of collected data from the Delaware State Trauma Registry form January 1, 2002, to December 31, 2012...

BACKGROUND: Accurate assessment of Cardiac Output (CO) is a critical measurement in the calculation of aortic valve area (AVA). Due to the known inaccuracy of estimated Fick calculations, many measure thermodilution (TD) CO as well due to previous studies showing better correlation with the gold standard direct CO. Previous studies showed suboptimal correlation between both methods. Most physicians assume that the TD CO is chosen by catheterization laboratory software for AVA evaluation...
