In recent years there has been an exponential increase of fillers use in aesthetic medicine. The popularity of this anti-wrinkle product is based on their capacity to offer significant improvement in the aesthetic field, particularly to skin rejuvenating processes with non-invasive and less expensive techniques, if compared to the surgical methods (i.e. surgical lifting). The great number of fillers on the market is composed of a large heterogenic number of biomaterials. The aim of this review was to provide an overview and a classification of the filling materials that are most commonly used...

There is growing interest in Singing for Lung Health (SLH), an approach where patients with respiratory disease take part in singing groups, intended to improve their condition. A consensus group was convened in early 2016 to address issues including: the specific features that make SLH distinct from other forms of participation in singing; the existing evidence base via a systematic review; gaps in the evidence base including the need to define value-based outcome measures for sustainable commissioning of SLH; defining the measures needed to evaluate both individuals' responses to SLH and the quality of singing programmes...

BACKGROUND: Crisis Resolution Teams (CRTs) provide short-term intensive home treatment to people experiencing mental health crisis. Trial evidence suggests CRTs can be effective at reducing hospital admissions and increasing satisfaction with acute care. When scaled up to national level however, CRT implementation and outcomes have been variable. We aimed to develop and test a fidelity scale to assess adherence to a model of best practice for CRTs, based on best available evidence. METHODS: A concept mapping process was used to develop a CRT fidelity scale...

OBJECTIVES: Integrative medicine (IM) has been recognized and introduced into Western healthcare systems over the past two decades. Limited information on IM models is available to guide development of an optimal healthcare service. A scoping review was carried out to evaluate IM models in the extant literature, including the distinctive features of each model, to gain an understanding of the core requirements needed to develop models of IM that best meet the needs of patients. DESIGN: Directed content analysis was used to classify the IM models into systems based on coding schema developed from theoretical models and to identify the key concepts of each system...

Saliva is an aqueous fluid found in the oral cavity playing fundamental role in the preservation and maintenance of oral health. Apart from higher-molecular-weight constituents it contains volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that may origin from such sources as blood or be result of bacterial metabolism. They can also reach the oral fluid through dissolving of volatiles from breath and consumed foods. Some of them may serve as biomarkers of various diseases, such as dimethyl disulfide (halitosis), pyridine (periodontal disease) and trimethylamine (trimethylaminuria) or occupational exposure...

INTRODUCTION: Over the last decades, numerous surgical procedures have been proposed to treat Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) secondary to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). However, all are characterized by a certain rate of treatment failure due to Bladder Neck Contracture (BNC). Treatment of secondary BNC appears to be challenging. The main purpose of this review is to evaluate current published knowledge on this topic. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: The MEDLINE/Pubmed database was searched for all original articles published between 2000 and 2016 analysing the incidence, prevalence and management of BNC as a post-operative complication following surgical treatment of LUTS/BPH...

INTRODUCTION: Endometriosis is a condition that affects women's fertility. Several mechanisms are involved in this process: anatomical changes, mechanical, immune or inflammatory factors, ovarian reserve alterations. There are different types of strategies to treat endometriosis-related infertility: medical treatment, surgical treatment and / or techniques of medically assisted procreation. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We tried to consider various therapeutic strategies depending on the stage of the disease in order to offer appropriate management to patients with endometriosis who wish to become pregnant: we reviewed 58 articles between 1985 to 2016 searching in medline using the key words "endometriosis and infertility" and "infertility and endometriosis treatment"...

Erythroplasia of Queyrat (EQ) is a rare disease involving the mucosal and transitional surfaces of the penis. Effective treatment is necessary to minimize progression to squamous cell carcinoma. The standard therapy for EQ, partial or radical penectomy, is invasive; photodynamic therapy (PDT) may be an effective, non-surgical tissue-sparing option. We report the case of a 67-year-old patient with long-standing EQ who was successfully treated with methyl aminolevulinate-PDT (MAL-PDT). A complete clinical response, confirmed by incisional biopsy, was achieved after five sessions of every-other-week treatment...
