BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The hepatitis C virus (HCV) remains a considerable public health challenge. Novel direct-acting antiviral (DAA) regimens offer high cure rates and the promise of reduced HCV incidence and prevalence following the up-scaling of treatment. This has focused attention towards affordability. This study aimed to estimate the economic value of cure to evaluate the treatment costs justifiable from the patient perspective. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A published, validated HCV model was utilized to contrast clinical and cost outcomes for patients aged 30-70 years, stratified by METAVIR F0-F4, for (i) no treatment and (ii) successful treatment [i...

Unplanned pregnancies are a unique, yet significant risk factor in perinatal mental health. Our aim was to create an assessment tool to assess mother's views on contraception as part of the discharge planning process. We used a quantitative-qualitative approach. A clinician-guided questionnaire was completed by patients prior to their discharge from hospital and analysed using Microsoft Excel. Semi-structured interviews were used to explore views regarding family planning in greater depth. Interviews were recorded and transcribed verbatim onto Microsoft Word...

Long-term nutrition support requires long-term enteral access. To ensure the success of long-term enteral access, many factors need to be taken into consideration. This article represents a guide to placing and maintaining access in patients requiring long-term nutrition and addresses many of the common questions regarding long-term enteral access, such as indications, types of access, feeding after access placed, and recognition and treatment of potential complications. This guide will help the clinician establish and maintain access to maximize nutrition in patients requiring long-term nutrition...

REVIEW
Brian A Sharpless
This review summarizes the empirical and clinical literature on sleep paralysis most relevant to practitioners. During episodes of sleep paralysis, the sufferer awakens to rapid eye movement sleep-based atonia combined with conscious awareness. This is usually a frightening event often accompanied by vivid, waking dreams (ie, hallucinations). When sleep paralysis occurs independently of narcolepsy and other medical conditions, it is termed "isolated" sleep paralysis. Although the more specific diagnostic syndrome of "recurrent isolated sleep paralysis" is a recognized sleep-wake disorder, it is not widely known to nonsleep specialists...

April W Armstrong, Michael Bukhalo, Andrew Blauvelt
Many of the molecular pathways associated with psoriasis pathogenesis are also involved in host defense mechanisms that protect against common pathogens. Candida can stimulate the production of cytokines that trigger or exacerbate psoriasis, and many systemic psoriasis treatments may put patients at increased risk for developing oral, cutaneous, and genitourinary candidiasis. Therefore, dermatologists should regularly screen patients with psoriasis for signs of Candida infection, and take steps to effectively treat these infections to prevent worsening of psoriasis symptoms...

Radiation therapy represents a vital component in the multidisciplinary management of soft tissue sarcomas. Combined with limb-preserving surgery, radiation therapy represents a standard of care treatment option for patients with high-grade sarcomas. Radiation therapy for soft tissue sarcoma continues to evolve with changes in timing, techniques, and targets. Over the past 2 decades, increasing data have supported the role of preoperative radiotherapy with the potential for lower total doses of radiation and improved long-term function coming at the cost of increased wound complications for certain locations...

REVIEW

Biological agents or "biologics" are widely used in oncology practice for cancer treatment and for the supportive management of treatment-related side effects. Unlike small-molecule generic drugs, exact copies of biologics are impossible to produce because these are large and highly complex molecules produced in living cells. The term "biosimilar" refers to a biological product that is highly similar to a licensed biological product (reference or originator product) with no clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety, purity, or potency...

Walter P Maksymowych
Plain radiography remains the benchmark for diagnostic evaluation of spondyloarthritis although MRI has much great sensitivity because it can detect a variety of inflammatory lesions as well as fat metaplasia. So, it is the imaging modality of choice when pelvic radiographs are equivocal and especially when important treatment decisions have to be made. Appropriate imaging includes the use of T1-weighted and short tau inversion recovery sequences of the sacroiliac joint in the tilted coronal plane. If there is localized spinal symptomatology, sagittal scans of the spine may also be helpful...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a significant healthcare issue, with substantial morbidity and mortality. Screening for CRC is essential in the prevention and treatment of this disease. The two most common CRC screening modalities are colonoscopy and the stool-based occult blood test, with two types of stool-based occult blood tests: the guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (FOBT) and the immunochemical FOBT. Despite many similarities, these two stool tests are different and often are confused in clinical practice...

REVIEW
Vishal Venkat Raman, Ramanathan Kasivisvanathan, Pradeep R Madhivathanan
Viscoelastic tests provide a global and dynamic assessment of the coagulation system and thus are becoming increasingly relied upon in the perioperative period. Many clinicians are unfamiliar with viscoelastic testing, so this article provides an overview of their use and interpretation in the management of perioperative bleeding.

Hermine Jan Warren
In 2011, nearly 13 million nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were performed, representing a 6% increase from the previous year. Patients often present with unrealistic treatment expectations based on beauty industry standards and misinformation. In addition, because of the lack of competency standardization in this area, providers frequently deliver inconsistent educational information to their patients. The initial goal of the project was to evaluate the clinician-guided module, a 13-slide PowerPoint presentation that was disseminated to key stakeholders for preliminary review...

REVIEW
Travis B Dick, Lance S Lindberg, Debra D Ramirez, Michael R Charlton
UNLABELLED: The US Food and Drug Administration has recently approved a number of new direct-acting antiviral agents for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus that have significantly increased the likelihood of a virological cure. These agents are highly effective but present a substantial risk for a host of clinically relevant drug-drug interactions. These interactions must be considered both when starting and stopping any medication, including over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements...

Data obtained from cardiopulmonary exercise testing offer additional interpretive power over conventional exercise tolerance testing. When used correctly, these data allow improved clinical decision making in patients with cardiometabolic and respiratory disease.

#20
REVIEW
Jean Yh Lee, Benjamin P Howden
Clinicians treating an infection assess a patient in terms of disease manifestation, causative organism and available antibiotic options with the aim of devising a therapeutic strategy under the creed of 'first, do no harm'. It is often only when treatment is failing or options are limited, as in the scenario of multidrug-resistant organisms, that consideration is given to the interplay that occurs between the microbe and the host. The emergence of Staphylococcus aureus with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin provides a prime example of these dynamic interactions...
