Kelly M Schieltz, David P Wacker, Joel E Ringdahl, Wendy K Berg
The connection, or bridge, between applied and basic behavior analysis has been long-established (Hake, 1982; Mace & Critchfield, 2010). In this article, we describe how clinical decisions can be based more directly on behavioral processes and how basing clinical procedures on behavioral processes can lead to improved clinical outcomes. As a case in point, we describe how applied behavior analyses of maintenance, and specifically the long-term maintenance of treatment effects related to problem behavior, can be adjusted and potentially enhanced by basing treatment on Behavioral Momentum Theory...

OBJECTIVES: Certain patients ultimately undergo explantation of their spinal cord stimulation (SCS) devices. Understanding the predictors and rates of SCS explantation has important implications for healthcare resource utilization (HCRU) and pain management. The present study identifies explant predictors and discerns differences in HCRU for at-risk populations. METHODS: We designed a large, retrospective analysis using the Truven MarketScan Database. We included all adult patients who underwent a SCS trial from 2007 to 2012...

The Ponseti method to treat idiopathic clubfoot deformity has proven to be reliable, and several centers have reported excellent outcomes. Although the method has been dependable in obtaining initial correction of the foot, relapse rates ranging from 26% to 48% have been reported. When a relapsed deformity is detected early, treatment with a short series of manipulations and cast applications followed by resumption of postcorrective bracing may be all that is required to regain and maintain correction. In patients aged >2...

One of the complications of bronchotracheal cancer is obstruction of the upper airways. Local tumor resection in combination with an airway stent can suppress intraluminal tumor (re)growth. We have investigated a novel drug-eluting stent coating for local release of the anticancer drug gefitinib. A polyurethane (PU) sandwich construct was prepared by a spray coating method in which gefitinib was embedded between a PU support layer of 200μm and a PU top layer of 50-200μm. Gefitinib was either embedded in the construct as small crystals or as gefitinib-loaded poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) microspheres (MSP)...

BACKGROUND: In the current economic climate of staff shortages and bed closures, orthopaedic surgeons must look for system efficiencies. Enhanced Recovery Programmes (ERP) have the potential not only to reduce length of stay (LOS) and concurrent costs but also to improve patient outcomes. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the effect of ERP for primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on length of stay (LOS) in the Irish Setting. METHODS: A single-surgeon retrospective case-control study was conducted comparing those who underwent primary lower limb arthroplasty before and after the introduction of an ERP...

Visible-light-activated photoredox catalysts provide synthetic chemists with the unprecedented capability to harness reactive radicals through discrete, single-electron transfer (SET) events. This protocol describes the synthesis of two transition metal complexes, [Ir{dF(CF3)2ppy}2(bpy)]PF6 (1a) and [Ru(bpy)3](PF6)2 (2a), that are activated by visible light. These photoredox catalysts are SET agents that can be used to facilitate transformations ranging from proton-coupled electron-transfer-mediated cyclizations to C-C bond constructions, dehalogenations, and H-atom abstractions...

OBJECTIVE: Each year in the United States, 1.5-2.5 million individuals require hospitalization for an injury. Multiple mental, substance use, and chronic general medical disorders are endemic among injury survivors with and without traumatic brain injury (TBI), yet few studies have assessed the association between the cumulative burden of these conditions and health care outcomes. This study of patients hospitalized for an injury assessed associations between comorbid mental, substance use, and general medical disorders, TBI, and violent events or suicide attempts and the postinjury outcomes of recurrent hospitalization and death...

Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disease that offers an excellent paradigm for cell replacement therapy because of the associated relatively focal cell loss in the striatum. The predominant cells lost in this condition are striatal medium spiny neurons (MSNs). Transplantation of developing MSNs taken from the fetal brain has provided proof of concept that donor MSNs can survive, integrate and bring about a degree of functional recovery in both pre-clinical studies and in a limited number of clinical trials...

BACKGROUND: Fecal incontinence (FI) represents a large source of morbidity and is a challenging clinical problem to manage. InterStim was approved to treat FI in 2011. Little is known about its adoption. We sought to characterize patterns of use of Interstim since Food and Drug Administration approval for FI. METHODS: The New York State SPARCS database was used to evaluate InterStim use for FI from 2011 to 2014. The primary endpoint was the number of successful implantations of InterStim...

Nurses working within both acute and primary care settings are required to care for and maintain central venous access devices (CVADs). To support these nurses in practice, a higher education institution and local health board developed and delivered CVAD workshops, which were supported by a workbook and competency portfolio. Following positive evaluation of the workshops, an electronic learning (e-learning) package was also introduced to further support this clinical skill in practice. To ascertain whether this blended learning approach to teaching CVAD care and maintenance prepared nurses for practice, the learning package was evaluated through the use of electronic questionnaires...

All animals are ecosystems with resident microbial communities, referred to as microbiota, which play profound roles in host development, physiology, and evolution. Enabled by new DNA sequencing technologies, there is a burgeoning interest in animal-microbiota interactions, but dissecting the specific impacts of microbes on their hosts is experimentally challenging. Gnotobiology, the study of biological systems in which all members are known, enables precise experimental analysis of the necessity and sufficiency of microbes in animal biology by deriving animals germ-free (GF) and inoculating them with defined microbial lineages...

This study is a follow-up observational study to assess the prevalence of chlamydia (CT) and gonorrhea (GC) among women who undergo a first-trimester surgical termination in a large public, urban hospital-based termination clinic, and to compare the rates to previously published data. We conducted a retrospective chart review on 4197 patients who underwent CT and GC testing before an elective, first-trimester surgical termination between 1 June 2014 and 31 May 2015. The prevalence rates were calculated and compared by chi square tests to previously published data from 1 January 2006 to 30 June 2006 from the same publicly-funded pregnancy termination clinic...

AIM: To evaluate the effect of sitagliptin vs placebo on histologic and non-histologic parameters of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). METHODS: Twelve patients with biopsy-proven NASH were randomized to sitagliptin (100 mg daily) (n = 6) or placebo (n = 6) for 24 wk. The primary outcome was improvement in liver fibrosis after 24 wk. Secondary outcomes included evaluation of changes in NAFLD activity score (NAS), individual components of NAS (hepatocyte ballooning, lobular inflammation, and steatosis), glycemic control and insulin resistance [including measurements of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) and adipocytokines], lipid profile including free fatty acids, adipose distribution measured using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and thrombosis markers (platelet aggregation and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 levels)...

BACKGROUND: Workplace injury is an international costly burden. Health care workers are an essential component to managing musculoskeletal disorders, however in doing this, they may increase their own susceptibility. While there is substantial evidence about work-related musculoskeletal disorders across the health workforce, understanding risk factors in specific occupational groups, such as podiatry, is limited. The primary aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and intensity of work related low back pain in podiatrists...

BACKGROUND: A problem in many health care practices is deciding the appropriate appointment length for new and established patients. Patients become frustrated when there is inadequate time to have their needs met, yet when a patient's clinic time is spontaneously lengthened, the provider gets behind in schedule, causing delays and greater frustration for others. AIM: The aims of this evidence based project were to determine whether implementation of a flexible appointment system would improve the current scheduling process in a pain clinic by allowing complex patients the opportunity to schedule a longer clinic appointment and would improve patient satisfaction...

Device selection and procedural guidance for percutaneous ductal closure strongly rely upon angiographic and echocardiographic imaging. Current literature recognises 2D echocardiography as an essential tool for diagnosis and assessment but does not define a consistent methodology to optimise ductal measurement. There is little research comparing echocardiography with gold standard angiography for ductal measurement. Proving 2D echocardiographic ductal measurement to be equivalent to angiography could pave the way for its use as the primary modality in image guidance for percutaneous closure of the ductus...

BACKGROUND: With increasing evidence for the effectiveness of e-mental health interventions for enhancing mental health and well-being, a growing challenge is how to translate promising research findings into service delivery contexts. A 2012 e-mental health initiative by the Australian Federal Government (eMHPrac) has sought to address the issue through several strategies, one of which has been to train different health professional workforces in e-mental health (e-MH). OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to report on the barriers and enablers of e-MH uptake in a cohort of predominantly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals (21 Indigenous, 5 non-Indigenous) who occupied mainly support or case management roles within their organizations...
