BACKGROUND: Patella-alta is very common in patients with Cerebral Palsy (CP). While several diagnostic x-ray indices have been developed for patella-alta in general, the specific relationship with walking dysfunction in CP is only partly understood. METHODS: 33 participants with bilateral spastic CP between 4 and 20 years (GMFCS I-II without previous surgery) that underwent 3D gait analysis as well as a radiographic exam within 0.8 (SD 1.2) months were retrospectively included...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) is common following cardiac surgery (CS). Body weight (BW) may be an amenable variable by representing the summation of the nutritional and the fluid status. However, the predictive role of perioperative BW changes in CS patients with severe postoperative AKI is never explored. This study aimed to evaluate this association. METHODS: This study was conducted using a prospectively collected multicenter cohort, NSARF (National Taiwan University Hospital Study Group on Acute Renal Failure) database...

BACKGROUND: Surgical operation notes are crucial for medical record keeping and information flow in continued patient care. In addition to inherent medical implications, the quality of operative notes also has important economic and medico-legal ramifications. Further, well-documented records can also be useful for audit purposes and propagation of research, facilitating the improvement of delivery of care to patients. We aimed to assess the quality of surgical operation notes written by junior doctors and trainees against a set standard, to ascertain whether these standards were met...

Aparna Wagle Shukla, Pam Zeilman, Hubert Fernandez, Jawad A Bajwa, Raja Mehanna
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery is a well-established therapy for control of motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease. Despite an appropriate targeting and an accurate placement of DBS lead, a thorough and efficient programming is critical for a successful clinical outcome. DBS programming is a time consuming and laborious manual process. The current approach involves use of general guidelines involving determination of the lead type, electrode configuration, impedance check, and battery check. However there are no validated and well-established programming protocols...

Gliosarcoma is a rare central nervous system (CNS) malignancy. It is characterized by classical biphasic histological pattern with both glial and sarcomatous components, often seen in fifth and sixth decade of life. They are generally located in the supratentorial region. Due to its rarity, exact treatment recommendations are not available in literature. Since it is considered as a variant of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), it is treated with surgery followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and temozolomide-based chemotherapy...

According to expansion of dialysis-dependent population, more than half of patients with critical ischemic limbs are dialysis-dependent in Japan. Although patients with end-staged renal disease are well-known as poor life prognosis, well-managed dialysis patients in Japan can survive much longer compared to dialysis patients in the United States and Europe. Therefore, some dialysis patients can enjoy the long-term benefits of bypass surgery. To decide the indication of bypass surgery, patient's general condition, nutrition status, and vein availability are more important rather than arterial disease anatomy...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if a brain MRI scan in patients with a diagnosis of migraine, who insist on the performance of imaging, is of more benefit in detecting clinically significant unsuspected structural abnormalities than would be expected by chance. METHODS: This prospective, observational, single center study was performed from January 1, 2010 to December 31,2012 and included 100 subjects with a diagnosis of migraine and a normal neurologic exam. A brain MRI scan was performed on all patients, solely at their request, to detect an unsuspected clinically significant structural lesion...

BACKGROUND: Student mistreatment is often a major concern during the surgery clerkship. We hypothesized that mistreatment is decreasing and that career choice may reflect perceived mistreatment. METHODS: We surveyed 2319 physicians about their surgery clerkships. Mistreatment reporting was correlated to physician specialty and medical school graduation year. RESULTS: The response rate was 18.9% (440/2319). Recent graduates reported less mistreatment than more senior graduates (24...

Recurrence rates of meningiomas have been widely reported in the literature, but it remains challenging for clinicians to predict recurrence rate depending on treatment, patient demographics and tumor characteristics. To address these needs, we performed a systematic analysis of the literature to determine the recurrence rate ranges of meningiomas following surgery or radiation. Our search yielded 13 studies that met all criteria for inclusion, allowing us to include 1539 patients in the assessment. Recurrence rates ranged from 0...
