#1
Callum Faris, Alyssa Heiser, Nate Jowett, Tessa Hadlock
Importance: Creation of symmetrical nasolabial folds (NLFs) is important in the management of the paralyzed face. Established techniques use a linear incision in the NLF, and technical refinements now allow the linear incision to be omitted. Design, Setting, and Participants: This retrospective case series was conducted in a tertiary care setting from February 2, 2017, to June 7, 2017. Participants were all patients (N = 21) with peripheral facial paralysis who underwent NLF modification that used the minimal nasolabial incision technique at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary Facial Nerve Center from February 1, 2015, through August 31, 2016...

BACKGROUND: Multiple patient-reported outcomes have been used to assess the burden of atopic dermatitis (AD). Some are disease specific, e.g. the Patient Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM). While others pertain to itch, e.g. Numerical Rating Scale (NRS)-itch, ItchyQoL and 5-D itch, or dermatologic disease in general, e.g. Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI). Development of severity strata is essential for proper interpretability of these assessments. We sought to confirm previously developed strata for POEM, DLQI and raw ItchyQoL, and develop strata for the NRS-itch, mean ItchyQOL and 5-D itch scale for use in adults with AD...

BACKGROUND: Our prior randomized controlled trial of Heller myotomy alone versus Heller plus Dor fundoplication for achalasia from 2000 to 2004 demonstrated comparable postoperative resolution of dysphagia but less gastroesophageal reflux after Heller plus Dor. Patient-reported outcomes are needed to determine whether the findings are sustained long-term. METHODS: We actively engaged participants from the prior randomized cohort, making up to six contact attempts per person using telephone, mail, and electronic messaging...

According to previous studies, hemithyroidectomy results in growth of the remaining thyroid lobe by up to 30% in first 12 months after surgery. However, this estimate is based on imprecise methods, high inter- and intra-observer variability, and lack of blinding of the measurements. Furthermore, it is unknown whether enlargement of the remaining hemi-thyroid interferes with the improvement in symptoms after surgery for goiter. We aimed to assess the impact of postoperative thyroid growth on goiter symptom relief following hemithyroidectomy in patients with benign nodular goiter...

Treatment options for progressive multiple sclerosis remain the main unmet need of the field. As the understanding of multiple sclerosis (MS) pathogenesis improves, new pathways and molecules will be tested for potential reparative, remyelinating, or neuroprotective effects. The clinical outcomes used will determine successful demonstration of beneficial treatment effects to regulatory agencies, clinicians, and persons with MS. This review focuses on clinical outcome measures including the Expanded Disability Status Scale, Multiple Sclerosis Functional Composite, and novel composite measures of disability...

BACKGROUND: Cartilage lesions are a significant cause of morbidity and impaired knee function; however, cartilage repair procedures have failed to reproduce native cartilage to date. Thus, osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation represents a 1-step procedure to repair large chondral defects without the donor site morbidity of osteochondral autograft transplantation. PURPOSE: To perform a systematic review of clinical outcomes and failure rates after OCA transplantation in the knee at a minimum mean 2 years' follow-up...
