David J Klocko
PURPOSE: This article describes a 3-year retrospective analysis of student clinical rotation evaluations using the Reporter-Interpreter-Manager-Educator (RIME) scoring format. The intent of the analysis was to assess scoring trends to determine whether students with high scores on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) also achieved high RIME scores on clinical rotations. METHODS: The top and bottom quartiles of PANCE scores were identified for the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center's physician assistant (PA) classes of 2010-2012 (n = 106)...

In 2015, for the first time in three decades, novel lipid-lowering drugs for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia were approved by the FDA in the US and EMA in Europe (US Food and Drug Administration 2015a, US Food and Drug Administration 2015b, European Medicines Agency 2015a, European Medicines Agency 2015b). Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), an enzyme encoded by the PCSK9 gene in humans, is the target of these novel therapeutics. In the early 2000s, PCSK9 was found to play a role in cholesterol homeostasis by promoting the degradation of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor in the liver, reducing its ability to remove LDL from circulation (Maxwell & Breslow, 2004, Park et al...

PURPOSE: Brow ptosis commonly occurs with aging. Minimally invasive techniques are varied and include neurotoxin paralysis of eyebrow depressors and internal brow pexy. The authors present a modification of the traditional brow-pexy surgery which incorporates weakening of the lateral eyebrow depressor, the orbicularis oculi muscle, to synergistically influence brow position. METHODS: This retrospective review includes 44 brows in 22 patients treated over a 14-month period...

OBJECTIVE: Through colonoscopy, polyps can be identified and removed to reduce colorectal cancer incidence and mortality. Appropriate use of surveillance colonoscopy, post polypectomy, is a focus of healthcare reform. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors developed and implemented the first electronic medical record-based colonoscopy reporting system (CoRS) that matches endoscopic findings with guideline-consistent surveillance recommendations and generates tailored results and recommendation letters for patients and providers...

REVIEW
Kristy A Brown, Evan R Simpson
It gives me great pleasure to contribute to this special issue of Seminars which honors the career of Bruce Carr. As it happens, Bruce was my first Fellow upon my arrival at the Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 1977. At that time, the Center was filled with luminaries of Reproductive Endocrinology, such as John Porter, Jack Johnston, Norman Gant, and of course the Director, Paul MacDonald, so to be given the responsibility of mentoring a new Fellow was a daunting responsibility...

People who live in food-insecure households face significant unmet health needs. At the same time, this population may be under-represented in clinical research studies because of the population's limited and intermittent engagement with the health care system. We describe preliminary results of a research partnership between UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) and Crossroads Community Services (CCS), the largest charitable food distributor of the North Texas Food Bank. The goal of the study is to improve understanding of this population's health- and mammography-related needs, knowledge and service utilization...

OBJECTIVES: In an effort to move training programs toward competency-based education, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) introduced the Next Accreditation System (NAS), which organizes specific milestones regarding resident skills, knowledge, and abilities along a continuum. In order to foster innovation and creativity, the ACGME has provided programs with minimal guidelines regarding the optimal way to approach these milestones. METHODS: The education team at UT Southwestern embraced the milestones and developed a process in which performance assessment methods were critically evaluated, mapped onto an extrapolated performance list corresponding to the areas required by the ACGME milestones, and filled gaps in the previous system by modifying evaluation tools and creating new program components...

OBJECTIVE: To study the degree of pupillary impairment in diabetic and non-diabetic autonomic neuropathy. METHODS: We retrospectively sampled from all patients who underwent comprehensive autonomic testing and infrared pupillometry at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Composite autonomic severity score (CASS) and pupillary indices from the average of at least three pupillary response curves were recorded. We randomly matched patients with diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) and patients with autonomic impairment unrelated to diabetes (non-DAN) based on gender, age (±5 years), and CASS (±1 point)...

The purpose of this study is to describe the comprehensive commissioning process and initial clinical performance of the Vero linear accelerator, a new radiotherapy device recently installed at UT Southwestern Medical Center specifically developed for delivery of image-guided stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR). The Vero system utilizes a ring gantry to integrate a beam delivery platform with image guidance systems. The ring is capable of rotating ± 60° about the vertical axis to facilitate noncoplanar beam arrangements ideal for SABR delivery...

BACKGROUND: Little evidence within plastic surgery literature supports the precept that longer operative times lead to greater morbidity. OBJECTIVE: The authors investigate surgery duration as a determinant of morbidity, with the goal of defining a clinically relevant time for increased risk. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of patients who underwent a broad range of complex plastic surgical procedures (n = 1801 procedures) at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, from January 1, 2008 to January 31, 2012...

PURPOSE: High-risk prostate cancer (PC) has poor outcomes due to therapeutic resistance to conventional treatments, which include prostatectomy, radiation, and hormone therapy. Previous studies suggest that anticoagulant (AC) use may improve treatment outcomes in PC patients. We hypothesized that AC therapy confers a freedom from biochemical failure (FFBF) and overall survival (OS) benefit when administered with radiotherapy in patients with high-risk PC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Analysis was performed on 74 high-risk PC patients who were treated with radiotherapy from 2005 to 2008 at UT Southwestern...

Basin-fill aquifers of the Southwestern United States are associated with elevated concentrations of arsenic (As) in groundwater. Many private domestic wells in the Cache Valley Basin, UT, have As concentrations in excess of the U.S. EPA drinking water limit. Thirteen sediment cores were collected from the center of the valley at the depth of the shallow groundwater and were sectioned into layers based on redoxmorphic features. Three of the layers, two from redox transition zones and one from a depletion zone, were used to establish microcosms...

OBJECTIVE: Juvenile myasthenia gravis (JMG) is an antibody-mediated autoimmune disorder of the neuromuscular junction, at the postsynaptic end plate. JMG presents with fluctuating skeletal muscle weakness and fatigue before the age of 18 years. Very frequently JMG presents with the involvement of the oculomotor muscles, with or without generalized involvement. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients diagnosed with myasthenia in the pediatric neuromuscular clinics at UT Southwestern, between 1990 and 2010...
