A robotic system can select and remove individual hair follicles from the donor area with great precision and without fatigue. This report describes the use of the robotic system in a megasession for hair restoration. Patients were instructed to cut their hair to 1.0 to 1.2 mm before surgery. The robot selected and removed 600 to 800 grafts per hour so the follicular units (FU)s could be transplanted manually to recipient sites. The robot arm consists of a sharp inner punch and a blunt outer punch which together separate FUs from the sur- rounding tissue...

Smart multifunctional materials can play a constructive role in addressing some very important aging-related issues. Aging affects the ability of older adults to continue to live safely and economically in their own residences for as long as possible. Thus, there will be a greater need for preventive, acute, rehabilitative, and long-term health care services for older adults as well as a need for tools to enable them to function independently during daily activities. The objective of this paper is, thus, to present a comprehensive review of some potential smart materials and their areas of applications to gerontology...

We describe a new syndrome characterized by early onset diabetes mellitus, associated with bone marrow failure affecting mostly the erythrocytic lineage. Using whole exome sequencing in a remotely consanguineous patient from a family with two affected siblings, we identified a single homozygous missense mutation (chr15.hg19:g.48,626,619A>G) located in the dUTPase (DUT) gene (NCBI Gene ID: 1854), affecting both the mitochondrial (DUT-M p.Y142C) and the nuclear (DUT-N p.Y54C) isoforms. We found the same homozygous mutation in an unrelated consanguineous patient with diabetes and bone marrow aplasia from a family with two affected siblings, while none of the >60,000 subjects from the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) was homozygous for this mutation...

BACKGROUND: Net survival rates of cancer are increasing worldwide, placing a strain on health service provision. There is a drive to transfer the care of cancer survivors-individuals living with and beyond cancer-to the community and encourage them to play an active role in their own care. Telehealth, the use of technology in remote exchange of data and communication between patients and health care professionals (HCPs), is an important contributor to this evolving model of care. Telehealth interventions are "complex," and understanding patient experiences of them is important in evaluating their impact...

The electronic health record (EHR) is frequently viewed as a government-mandated charting system. As simply a replacement for the paper record, however, it was also frequently found to be inconvenient and a distraction to patient care. Broader use of the technology inherent in the EHR in the form of daily reports focused on key information that allows trauma clinical teams to efficiently monitor important information such as specific laboratory results or medications that might be missed or overlooked. In addition, other clinical personnel can monitor and assist in the care of trauma patients from remote locations such as an administrative office...

The number of patients with heart failure implantable cardiac electronic devices (CIEDs) is growing. Hospitalization rate in this group is very high and generates enormous costs. To avoid the need for hospital treatment, optimized monitoring and follow-up is crucial. Remote monitoring (RM) has been widely put into practice in the management of CIEDs but it may be difficult due to the presence of differences in systems provided by device manufacturers and loss of gathered data in case of device reimplantation...

BACKGROUND: Seniors with chronic diseases such as heart failure have complex care needs. They are vulnerable to their condition deteriorating and, without timely intervention, may require multiple emergency department visits and/or repeated hospitalizations. Upon discharge, the transition from the emergency department to home can be a vulnerable time for recovering patients with disruptions in the continuity of care. Remote monitoring of heart failure patients using home telemonitoring, coupled with clear communication protocols between health care professionals, can be effective in increasing the safety and quality of care for seniors with heart failure discharged from the emergency department...
