BACKGROUND: Patient engagement is vital in multiple sclerosis (MS) in order to optimise outcomes for patients, society and healthcare systems. It is essential to involve all stakeholders in potential solutions, working in a multidisciplinary way to ensure that people with MS (PwMS) are included in shared decision-making and disease management. To start this process, a collaborative, open environment between PwMS and healthcare professionals (HCPs) is required so that similarities and disparities in the perception of key areas in patient care and unmet needs can be identified...

Salil Sood, Ian Street, Adam Donne
Hoarseness or dysphonia are terms used to describe a change in the quality of the voice. The voice quality can be raspy, breathy, strained, fatigued, rough, tremulous or weak. There may be a change in pitch, restriction of range, voice breaks, decreased projection, or abnormal resonance. It is important to remember that a voice disorder is not a disease in itself but rather a presentation of an underlying pathology. Clinicians' knowledge of paediatric hoarseness is limited as it can be difficult to examine children using fibreoptic laryngoscopy and the child may not comprehend the need for detailed examination...

Vertical ridge augmentation in the posterior mandible is a technique-sensitive procedure that requires adequate anatomical knowledge and precise surgical skills to minimize the risk of complications. One of the most important but also challenging aspects of the surgical technique is proper flap management to allow for passive flap closure and reduce the chances of postoperative complications affecting deep anatomical spaces. This article presents a detailed description of a novel lingual flap advancement technique and its validation via a split-mouth, comparative study using a cadaver model...

A 62-year-old man presented to the emergency department with massive hemoptysis. After bronchial artery embolization, he developed ischemic myelitis, a rare complication in this setting for which no specific therapy is currently recommended. The symptoms were managed with lumbar drainage of cerebrospinal fluid and blood pressure augmentation therapy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of using lumbar drainage of cerebrospinal fluid and blood pressure augmentation in the treatment of anterior medullary ischemia after bronchial artery embolization for massive hemoptysis...

INTRODUCTION: Ureteroscopy has been shown to be a highly efficacious and safe modality for the treatment of pediatric urolithiasis. However, conventional ureteroscopy relies on fluoroscopy for intraoperative guidance, exposing both patient and operating room personnel to ionizing radiation. Pediatric urolithiasis patients are at a particularly increased risk from this radiation exposure. The use of ultrasound in place of fluoroscopy for intraoperative guidance has emerged as one modification that can reduce radiation exposure during ureteroscopy...

National and international research evidence of the importance of early childhood and early childhood education to human well-being, resilience and attachment to the society justifies the investment in childhood and children. From the society, this requires national intent, management by knowledge, and strengthening of fundamental rights of children.

The Paluclim project managed by the French Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES) found that total rainfall for a 3-month period is a confounding factor for the density of malaria vectors in the region of Nouna in the Sahel administrative territory of northern Burkina Faso. Following the models introduced in 1999 by Craig et al. and in 2003 by Tanser et al., a climate impact model for malaria risk (using different climate indices) was created. Several predictions of this risk at different temporal scales (i...

AIMS: The prognosis after hospitalization for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) remains poor, especially <30 days post-discharge. Evidence-based medications with prognostic impact administered at discharge improve survival and hospital readmission, but robust studies comparing pre-discharge with post-discharge initiation are rare. The PARADIGM-HF trial established sacubitril/valsartan as a new evidence-based therapy in patients with heart failure (HF) and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (<40%) (rEF)...

BACKGROUND: Habituation to sex pheromones is one of the key mechanisms in mating disruption, an insect control tactic. Male moths often show reduced sexual response after pre-exposure to female sex pheromone. Mating disruption is relatively rare in insect orders other than Lepidoptera. RESULTS: As a positive control we confirmed habituation in a moth (Epiphyas postvittana) using 24 h pre-exposure to sex pheromone to reduce subsequent activation behaviour. We then tested the impact of pre-exposure to sex or trail pheromone on subsequent behavioural response with insects from three other orders...

REVIEW
Ronald A DeLellis, Shamlal Mangray
Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is one of the most common of all endocrine disorders encountered by the practising histopathologist. The vast majority of lesions are sporadic in nature, approximately 85% of which are parathyroid adenomas, while hyperplasia and carcinoma account for 10-15% and fewer than 1%, of cases, respectively. Heritable forms of PHPT are much less common and present challenges both to clinicians and pathologists, particularly when they are the presenting feature of an endocrine syndrome...

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory multifactorial disorder of the airways characterized by the involvement of immune cells and mediators in its onset and maintenance. Traditional therapeutic strategies have been unsatisfactory in controlling the underlying pathology, especially in the more severe states. Hence in the last couple of decades, new biological approaches targeting molecular mediators have been developed. In this narrative review we examine biological agents currently available for the management of severe asthma, focusing our attention on their clinical application, pros and cons, and in particular on gaps regarding the use of these agents...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a food antigen-mediated disorder of the esophagus characterized by eosinophil predominant inflammation and symptoms of esophageal dysfunction. Dietary antigen elimination induces clinical and histological remission in patients with EoE. The most restrictive of elimination diets (the elemental diet) removes all possible food antigens while empiric elimination diets remove all (or a subset) of food antigens most commonly reported to cause esophageal eosinophilia and food allergies (milk, egg, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, or legumes)...

Purpose: The provision of self-management support (SMS) for people with earlier stages (1-4) of chronic kidney disease (CKD) can improve patient outcomes and extend time to dialysis. However, attempts to deliver such support have often not taken patient preferences into account. After the development, implementation, and quantitative evaluation of the person-centered CKD-SMS intervention, the aim of this study was to investigate participant experiences and perceptions of the program, as well as to seek suggestions to improve future SMS attempts...

A 59-year-old male patient presented with mild gallstone pancreatitis. He underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy during the same admission, where we encountered a left-sided gall bladder (GB). This was managed during laparoscopic surgery by modifying the laparoscopic port positions, and we did not encounter any other variations in the biliary anatomy. Thorough knowledge regarding anatomical variations of the GB will help in managing rare cases and avoid injuries to vital structures.
