#1
Richard E Gray, Korey Kasper
Postvasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS) can be debilitating and is notoriously difficult to treat, often requiring a multidisciplinary approach. In this case report, osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) was used to treat a patient with PVPS. After vasectomy, an otherwise-healthy man experienced chronic right testicular pain, aggravated by exercise, touch, and sexual intercourse, resulting in marital strain and an inability to perform routine fitness activities. Symptoms persisted for 8 years, despite lifestyle modifications, orally administered pain regimens, pelvic floor physical therapy, nerve blocks, steroid injections, epididymectomy, spermatic cord denervation, and counseling...

Giacomo Consorti, Fabio Basile, Leonardo Pugliese, Marco Petracca
Context: Somatic dysfunctions are a key element of osteopathic practice. The evaluation of somatic dysfunctions is achieved by assessment of the TART (tissue texture abnormality, asymmetry, restriction of motion, tenderness) parameters. The reliability of a diagnostic method is the crux of successful treatment. Interrater reliability of osteopathic palpatory diagnostic tests have been studied on different anatomical areas, but there are no studies on the evaluation of all of the TART parameters on the sacrum...

H Eduardo Velasco-Mondragon, Teresita Menini, Catherine West, Michael Clearfield
Public health and interprofessional education (IPE) are included among the osteopathic core competencies and Entrustable Professional Activities that should be reflected in osteopathic medical curricula. Cognizant of the importance of these 2 areas, Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine-CA (TUCOM) has developed initiatives to advance them on campus as well as within its academic curriculum. The authors acknowledge the importance of incorporating public health content into osteopathic medicine as well as expanding IPE in the health professions as part of a larger project to impart a unique identity and relevance to osteopathic medical education at TUCOM...

Advances in ultrasonography (US) have allowed this technology to play an increasingly important role in numerous fields of medicine. It is important that medical schools incorporate this broadly applicable tool into their curricula. Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine-CA has implemented a progressive US curriculum that is intended to complement osteopathic education, keep pace with medical advances, and arm future physicians with the most advanced skills and tools to practice medicine. In this article, the authors highlight the importance of US training in medical education and demonstrate the relative ease, cost-effectiveness, and direct benefit to students of implementing such a curriculum...

Michael A Seffinger, Eric Hurwitz, John Quiamas, Antoinette Kitch, Vanessa Mervyn-Cohen, Edward Lin
Context: Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) and yoga are both recommended by systematic reviews in the evidence-based research literature for low back pain management. It is unknown, to the authors' knowledge, what the effect of personal experience with OMT or yoga, reading research articles on OMT or yoga, or both will have on medical students' recommendations for these treatment options to future patients with chronic low back pain. Objective: To evaluate the likelihood of osteopathic medical students recommending OMT or yoga to treat patients with chronic low back pain based on their personal experience or reading research articles that recommend OMT or yoga for patients with chronic low back pain...

Jay H Shubrook, William Chen, Alegria Lim
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a common chronic metabolic condition. Before receiving this diagnosis, persons typically have a long period of prediabetes. There is good evidence that T2DM can often be prevented or delayed by means of lifestyle interventions (39%-71%), medications (28%-79%), or metabolic surgery (75%). However, despite consistent data demonstrating their efficacy, these tools are underused, and knowledge about them among primary care physicians is limited. In an effort to engage physicians in addressing this public health crisis more effectively, the authors reviewed the evidence that T2DM can be prevented or delayed in persons at risk...

Michael Clearfield, Glenn Davis, Jennifer Weis, Gregory Gayer, Jay H Shubrook
Obesity and climate change conspire to create an environment in which subclinical vascular inflammation leads to progressive atherosclerosis, which contributes to the number 1 cause of global mortality: cardiovascular disease. The syndemic model requires 2 or more diseases or contributors to disease (such as obesity and climate change) clustering within a specific population in addition to the associated societal and social factors, ultimately creating an environment supportive of a greater adverse interaction...

Context: To improve chronic disease self-management among an underserved population and to improve the skills of second-year osteopathic medical students, an educational curriculum, The Other 45, was developed. In addition to a typical 15-minute office visit, this program allows second-year students to provide chronic disease education to patients for 45 minutes in an effort to improve patient disease self-management and associated health outcomes. Objective: To determine whether patients who participate in The Other 45 report improvements in their ability to manage their chronic disease(s) and their health outcomes and whether second-year osteopathic medical students report changes in patient-centered care, clinical confidence, and medical/teaching knowledge...

Background: Thyroid nodules are increasingly common. Although guidelines have been published, it is unclear whether recommendations for the use of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and ultrasonography are followed. Objective: To evaluate the impact of a quality improvement initiative regarding utilization of FNA and ultrasonography before resection of malignant thyroid neoplasms at a community-based hospital. Methods: A retrospective medical record review of patients who received thyroidectomy with histologically proven malignant thyroid neoplasms at a community-based teaching center in the Midwest in 2014 revealed inconsistent use of FNA and ultrasonography per national guidelines...

Context: Uninsured patients living in rural areas of North Carolina have been inordinately affected by the increasing prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the midst of severe budget cuts to treatment programs and a shortage of rural primary care physicians. The Campbell University Community Care Clinic, a self-funded, student-run clinic, provides free health care to uninsured residents of rural Harnett County. As a relatively new clinic serving a unique population, epidemiologic research is paramount to the clinic's continued efficacy...

Daniel Martingano, Lisamarie Colón Ramírez, Marc A Bjurlin
Cancer of the uterine cervix is the third most common gynecologic cancer diagnosis and cause of death among gynecologic cancers in the United States. Cervical cancer is frequently asymptomatic until it reaches a locally advanced stage. The authors present a case of urinary retention caused by an atypical presentation of invasive cervical cancer mimicking primary urothelial tumor. The patient was evaluated by a multidisciplinary team, with osteopathic structural examination, intraoperative examination, surgical resection, and histopathologic analysis...

Anthony J Orsini
Despite growing interest in the importance of compassionate communication and patient experience, many physicians still feel unprepared when faced with delivering bad medical news. To address this need, few methods have been developed to offer physicians a structure for these conversations, with the goal of making the dialogues less traumatic for patients and families and less stressful for physicians. The PROGRAM method promotes compassionate communication to help physicians make a connection with their patients, which is central to improving health care quality...

Bernadette Riley
With advances in technology and the advent of social media and social networking sites, the way medical education is taught to millennials must evolve. The "flipped classroom," which occurs when students are exposed to learning materials before their assigned face-to-face class or didactic session, can help engage all learning styles. A flipped classroom paired with simulation-based medical education (SBME) engages millennial learners to acquire the large amount of information required in osteopathic medical school...
