PURPOSE: To explore a more comprehensive and objective method for dental students examination, and improve the quality of pediatric dental education. METHODS: Fifteen 8-year-program students and 30 5-year-program dental students from School of Stomatology, the Fourth Military Medical University were enrolled in this study. Objective structured clinical examination (OSCE), traditional diadactic test and questionnaires were carried out in all students. The scores of the two testing methods between students in 2 groups were compared using SPSS 11...

BACKGROUND: Recent data have shown an increasing occurrence of atopic dermatitis (AD) in children and adolescents, as well as in adults. Most of the epidemiologic research on AD is limited to pediatric and youth populations and is based on self-reported questionnaires. METHODS: A nationwide, population-based, cross-sectional retrospective study of adolescents with AD was performed to estimate its prevalence, trends, and association with demographic factors and comorbidities...

In light of the recent terrorist attacks in Europe, we need to reconsider the organization of rescue and medical management and plan for an attack involving multiple pediatric victims. To ensure quick surgical management, but also to minimize risk for on-site teams (direct threats from secondary terrorist attacks targeting deployed emergency services), it is crucial to evacuate patients in a swift but orderly fashion. Children are vulnerable targets in terrorist attacks. Their anatomical and physiological characteristics make it likely that pediatric victims will suffer more brain injuries and require more, often advanced, airway management...

Importance: The results of preclinical studies suggest that anesthetic drugs administered to neonatal animals cause widespread neuronal apoptosis and later neurocognitive impairment. Adequately powered studies in the pediatric surgical population are scarce, and it is unclear whether such preclinical findings are relevant for the pediatric setting. Objective: To examine the association of anesthesia and surgery before age 4 years with long-term academic and cognitive performance indexed by school grades at age 16 years and IQ test scores at military conscription...

Despite being the leading cause of death in the United States for individuals 46 years and younger and the primary cause of death among military service members, trauma care research has been underfunded for the last 50 years. Sustained federal funding for a coordinated national trauma clinical research program is required to advance the science of caring for the injured. The Department of Defense is committed to funding studies with military relevance; therefore, it cannot fund pediatric or geriatric trauma clinical trials...

BACKGROUND: Gun control laws vary greatly between states within the United States. We hypothesized that states with strict gun laws have lower mortality and resource utilization rates from pediatric firearms-related injury admissions. METHODS: Kids' Inpatient Database (1997-2012) was searched for accidental (E922), self-inflicted (E955), assault (E965), legal intervention-related (E970), or undetermined circumstance (E985) firearm injuries. Patients were younger than 20 years and admitted for their injuries...

BACKGROUND: Differences in perforated appendix admission rates (PAAR) are an ambulatory-sensitive measure of access to care. While pediatric studies report disparities in PAAR, initial adult investigations suggest a lack of racial/ethnic inequity. The objectives of this study were to (1) assess for risk-adjusted, racial/ethnic differences in PAAR among adults on a national scale, (2) consider the extent to which variations (or lack thereof) are explained by age, insurance, and income, and (3) compare results within the United States population to a national segment of the population who are completely insured...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present assessment was to identify "genuine" medical papers generated by Turkey's institutions that have contributed most to cardiovascular medicine. METHODS: Based on Web of Science data, 160 papers were identified as having received 40 or more citations as of late July 2015. Papers with more than minor contribution from international authors were excluded. RESULTS: A total of 127 primary authors generated 160 papers, each receiving ≥40 (95% confidence interval 40-165) citations...

OBJECTIVES: To complement a case series review of button battery impactions managed at our single military tertiary care center with a thorough literature review of laboratory research and clinical cases to develop a protocol to optimize patient care. Specifically, to identify predictive factors of long-term complications which can be used by the pediatric otolaryngologist to guide patient management after button battery impactions. METHODS: A retrospective review of the Department of Defense's electronic medical record systems was conducted to identify patients with button battery ingestions and then characterize their treatment course...

BACKGROUND: There is limited data regarding co-morbidities and cognitive status of asthma during childhood and adolescence. The aim of the current study was to explore the presence of co-morbidities and cognitive status in a large cohort of teenagers with asthma. METHODS: The medical records of 314,897 consecutive 17-year-old males, undergoing comprehensive medical and cognitive evaluation prior to recruitment for military service, were reviewed. The prevalence of co-morbidities and a cognitive assessment in subjects with asthma were compared to those without asthma...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Asthma exacerbations frequently trigger emergency department (ED) visits. Guidelines recommend timely follow-up after an ED visit for asthma, however, other studies have questioned the quality of follow-up care and their effect on subsequent ED utilization. We evaluated follow-up care on asthma outcomes in pediatric asthmatics enrolled in the Military Health System (MHS) after an ED visit for asthma. METHODS: This retrospective study utilized MHS data to evaluate 2-17-year-old persistent asthmatics with an ED visit for asthma between 2010-2012...

PURPOSE: To present a combining pyelolithotomy and endoscopy, an alternative approach for treating staghorn calculi in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We treated 1414 children (age, 10 months to 17 years) with urolithiasis between 2009 and 2013 in the Pediatric Surgery Department and in the Pediatrics and Nephrology Department, Military Institute of Medicine in Warsaw. Most patients were treated conservatively. In 162 cases, an extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) procedure was needed...
