Scleroderma is an uncommon autoimmune disease of unknown cause that may affect any organ system in the body. Patients with scleroderma are prone to developing pulmonary complications, including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), that are the leading cause of death in this population. This article describes scleroderma-related PAH and its diagnosis and management.

Infertility is a potentially life-changing diagnosis for couples who are trying to conceive. A diagnosis of infertility and the associated management plan can lead to psychological stress, anxiety, and depression for one or both partners. Infertility affects 6% of married women of reproductive age in the United States. Once a couple is determined to be infertile, prompt referral to a specialist is indicated. Treatment varies according to the cause and may include medication, surgical intervention, or assisted reproductive technology...

Alysia Agnoni, Christine Lazaros Amendola
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is the most common gastrointestinal emergency in preterm infants and continues to be a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The incidence of NEC as well as mortality from the disease has persisted at unacceptably high levels for decades as current understanding of the cause remains incomplete. Identifying infants at risk and preventing NEC are mainstays of care. This article briefly examines disease presentation and treatment, identifies gaps in current understanding of disease pathology, and highlights new research that may lead to a decrease in the incidence of NEC in the future...

Clinicians must be prepared to identify tobacco use among patients and implement behavioral interventions to help patients quit. By understanding behavioral interventions and pharmacologic options, clinicians can design an optimal quit plan for each patient. This article reviews foundations of tobacco cessation, pharmacotherapy updates, and the emergence of e-cigarettes as desirable cessation tools for patients.

As the PA profession moves into its 50th year and develops globally, its flexibility and underlying principles make it adaptable to a wide range of healthcare needs and governmental priorities. A key feature of effective PA development is adapting the profession to the needs of each country rather than adopting it exactly as it has developed in the United States. The successful adaptation of new PA models must assure that the new profession meets a societal need, such as increasing healthcare access for specific populations or geographic areas...

The primary method of screening for and detecting prostate cancer is the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. Although this test is very prostate-specific, it is not cancer-specific; conditions other than prostate cancer can cause an elevated PSA. Many efforts have been made to discover more specific tests and methods beyond the PSA. This article describes several literature-supported tests and methods to better stratify a man's risk of having prostate cancer.

The physician assistant (PA) profession was established in Bulgaria in 2014 in response to a growing shortage of medical staff and was modeled on the United States experience. Feldschers provided a similar role in Bulgaria from 1878 to 1999 but feldscher training was discontinued in 1999 because of a physician surplus. However, healthcare in Bulgaria changed after the country joined the European Union, and some physicians left for better opportunities elsewhere. The loss of physicians and an aging population meant that PAs were seen as a strategy to offset Bulgaria's growing healthcare demand...

As the PA profession develops internationally, few mechanisms let PAs move from country to country for clinical practice opportunities. The first author of this paper has worked in the civilian health sectors in two countries, the Netherlands and South Africa, and taught PA students in South Africa and Australia. He reports on PA development in each country and reflects on and compares his professional and clinical experiences.

Patients with severe and persistent mental illness often face limited access to psychiatric and primary care. This exploratory qualitative analysis studied the effect of introducing a PA into a comprehensive outpatient psychiatric team. Early results suggest this model improves the quality and access to primary and psychiatric care.

As patients lose cognitive function, they lose autonomy and increasingly use fiscal, social, and medical resources. Healthcare costs for Americans older than age 65 years are three to five times higher than for the remaining population, and dementia is the third most costly disease in the United States. Interventions that promote successful aging can help patients and reduce the financial, workforce, and treatment resource burdens on the population. Because a relationship between physical activity, particularly aerobic exercise, and cognitive decline has been established, physical activity interventions may prove practical, affordable, and effective...
