The aim of this study was to determine whether a continuous visual analogue scale (VAS) is a reliable tool to grade embryo transfer (ET) difficulty when assessing IVF outcomes. No standardized grading system exists for reporting ET 'difficulty' which is typically recorded in descriptive terms. Clinicians performing 188 fresh single ETs between November 2014 and May 2016 also recorded a VAS score (0-100). Embryo transfers were stratified into three levels of ET 'difficulty': (A) 'easy' - no resistance; (B) 'medium' - resistance overcome by advancing the catheter's outer sheath; and (C) 'difficult' - a malleable stylet was required to overcome resistance; and these compared to the VAS scores...

Background: A recent WHO review concluded that live BCG and measles vaccine (MV) may have beneficial non-specific effects (NSEs) reducing mortality from non-targeted diseases. NSEs of oral polio vaccine (OPV) were not examined. If OPV vaccination campaigns reduce the mortality rate, it would suggest beneficial NSEs. Setting: Between 2002 and 2014, Guinea-Bissau had 15 general OPV campaigns and other campaigns with OPV plus vitamin A supplementation (VAS), VAS-only, MV, and H1N1 vaccine...

Background: Anterior knee pain is a major problem in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). It is accepted that anterior knee pain (AKP) often contributes to a patellofemoral etiology; however, its etiology or treatment is not understood completely. Disabling pain receptors by electrocautery could theoretically lead to anterior knee area denervation. The present study aimed to evaluate the pain post-patellar denervation (PD) with electrocautery in TKA. Materials and Methods: Clinical results for 92 patients who underwent TKA (58 women, 34 men; mean age 67...

Background: Manual pressure palpation is an examination technique used in the classification of myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) and fibromyalgia (FM). Currently, there are no validated systems for classifying results. A valid and reliable pressure pain threshold scale (PPTS) may provide a means for clinicians to grade, document, and report findings. The purpose of this investigation was to validate a PPTS in individuals diagnosed with MPS and FM. Intra-rater reliability, concurrent validity, minimum cut-off value, and patient responses were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Migraine headaches are a common reason for pediatric emergency department (ED) visits. Small studies suggest the potential efficacy of sub-anesthetic doses of propofol for migraine with a favorable side effect profile and potentially decreased length of stay (LOS). OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of low-dose propofol (LDP) to standard therapy (ST) in pediatric migraine treatment. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, pragmatic randomized controlled trial from April 2014 through June 2016 in the ED at two pediatric hospitals...
