Disparities in the management of patients with various medical conditions are well established. Colorectal diseases continue to remain one of the most common causes for surgical intervention. The aim of this study was to assess disparities (rural versus urban) in the surgical management of patients with noncancerous benign colorectal diseases. We hypothesized that there is no difference among rural versus urban centers (UC) in the surgical management for noncancerous benign colorectal diseases. The national estimates of surgical procedures for benign colorectal diseases from the National Inpatient Sample database 2011 representing 20 per cent of all in-patient admissions were abstracted...

Symptomatic involutional osteoporosis is a significant clinical problem. The prevalence of radiographic vertebral compression fractures (VCF) reached 26% in a rigorous population study of men and women more than 50 years old.1 However, only an estimated 8% of the total affected population actually seek medical attention.2-4 Investigations of effective medical therapy have been extensive, while sound studies of the physical therapeutic measures have been relatively few.5-10Pain and loss of functional mobility result from this disorder...

A loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) was suspected of ingesting rubber suction cups during rehabilitation following a cold-stun event. Survey radiographs were inconclusive. Computed tomography (CT) was performed to determine whether the objects had been ingested after traditional radiographs failed to resolve the material. The items were identified, and a partial obstruction was diagnosed. The case was managed with medical therapy using white petrolatum and light mineral oil administered to the turtle in fish for 3 wk...

BACKGROUND: In the health care system in the United States, the management of chronic health conditions and their functional consequences challenge and frustrate patients, caregivers/families, health care providers, and physicians. Contributing factors include a lack of physician and health care provider training and a health system that emphasizes diagnosis and management of acute illnesses. A broader patient care model is required for patients with chronic disease(s). USING THE DOMAIN MANAGEMENT MODEL (DMM) TO CLASSIFY PATIENTS' CLINICAL PROBLEMS: The DMM is a synthesis of approaches used in internal medicine, geriatric medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation...

'Timing' of treatment in breast cancer may refer to intervals within a single management or between different managements. Rates of shrinkage of breast cancers in response to treatment are related to histological grade and may be used as surrogates for growth rates. Histological grade should predict appropriate timing of treatment. Four cases of locally advanced breast cancer that illustrate a number of different types of interval are presented. Two tumours of differing histological grade (II and III) had been managed by historical 'split-course' radiotherapy and two similar grade III tumours were managed by primary medical treatment, followed at different intervals by radiotherapy...

At the Sexual Dysfunction Clinic at Keesler USAF Medical Center, 17 women complaining of dyspareunia with painful hymen and demonstrable vaginismus were managed by surgical removal of hymenal remnants followed by directive sexual therapy and progressive vaginal dilatation. All patients were pain free within 8 weeks of the surgical procedures. It is believed that a combined approach is best to break the cycle of pain, fear, vaginismus, and more pain that these women have established.

Personnel from a variety of professional backgrounds meeting in a weekly group have been trained to carry out effective treatment of patients with psychosexual problems. The skills necessary in this type of work and the training method are described. Assessment of outcome for forty consecutive couples treated by trainees revealed significant improvement in 70%. The advantages and disadvantages of this type of training are discussed.

Medical management of Crohn's disease is above all symptomatic. According to the severeness of the case, treatment varies and may be simple (regimen, antidiarrheic agents and sulfamid drugs) or more sophisticated (continous parenteral alimentation). Sulfamids and antibiotics have a definite although temporary action. Pathogenic medication includes: 1) steroid therapy who is active, but its effects are not long stand; 2) immunosuppressors who allow for the reduction of steroid therapy dosages; 3) immunostimulants as proposed by Geffroy...
