STUDY OBJECTIVE: Thoracic endometriosis syndrome (TES), characterized mainly by catamenial pneumothorax, represents a relevant condition in patients affected by endometriosis. However, few studies have analyzed this condition under the gynecological point of view, in terms of characteristic of endometriosis and fertility status of affected women. In our study, we evaluate the association between catamenial pneumothorax, pelvic endometriosis and the fertility status of the patients. DESIGN: Retrospective study of 16 patients treated for catamenial pneumothorax between January 2001 and January 2014 at the Thoracic Surgery Department of San Raffaele Scientific Institute...

Unique military demands can have a significant impact upon family life. Although most Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) families are able to cope effectively with the stressors of military life, some may experience marital conflicts, contributing to spousal violence. Moreover, there is evidence that certain personal resources can buffer the impact of spousal violence on psychological distress. The present study examined the roles of spousal violence and personal resources, including coping, mastery, and social support, in the psychological distress of CAF members' spouses (N = 1,892)...

This study documents the growing role of the physician assistant (PA) in the Canadian Armed Forces. PAs have served as the backbone of the Royal Canadian Medical Services' frontline medical operations since 1984, on land, aboard ships and submarines, and domestically in garrison. Candidates begin as medical technicians and receive advanced training to become PAs at midcareer. The current rank of PAs as warrant officers is evolving and a commissioned status is under consideration.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: In cervical cancer, there are limited randomized trials to indicate whether patient outcomes are equivalent after radical hysterectomy (RH) via minimally invasive (MIS) or traditional laparotomy (XL) approach. The aim of this study was to assess patient outcomes of women with cervical cancer undergoing upfront RH at two large academic institutions to determine if mode of surgery affects patient outcomes. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study Design classification: Canadian Task Force Classification II-1 SETTING: Two academic medical institutions in the United States from 2000 to 2013 PATIENTS: Women undergoing upfront RH for cervical cancer INTERVENTION: Minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic and robotic) for RH, as compared with XL MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: 383 women met eligibility requirements...

This paper uses the 2005 and 2010 Canadian General Social Surveys (Time Use) to investigate the effect of wages on the sleep duration of individuals in the labour force. The endogeneity of wages is taken into account with an instrumental variables approach; we find that the wage rate affects sleeping time in general, corroborating Biddle and Hamermesh's (1990) main conclusion. A ten percent increase in the wage rate leads to an 11-12min decrease in sleep per week. But this number masks several effects. The responsiveness of sleep time to wage rate changes depends upon the sex of the individual, whether or not sleep problems are present and general economic conditions...
