BACKGROUND: Utilizing our standardized approach to air leak reduction (STAR) protocol has led to a continual decrease in the need for inpatient recovery following lobectomy. Although next day discharges do occur, the current literature hasn't addressed their safety. We analyzed our STAR dataset to study this group and their outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data from the STAR dataset was performed. Characteristics were compared between patients discharged on postoperative day (POD) 1 and those with longer admissions...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Dysfunction in reward-related aspects of feeding, and consequent overeating in humans, is a major contributor to obesity. Intrauterine undernutrition and overnutrition are among the predisposing factors, but the exact mechanism of how overeating develops is still unclear. Consummatory behavior is regulated by the medial shell (mSh) of the accumbens nucleus (Nac) through direct connections with the rostral part of the lateral hypothalamic area (LHA). Our aim was to investigate whether an altered Nac-LHA circuit may underlie hyperphagic behavior...

BACKGROUND: In light of data finding that postoperative pain, nausea, and vomiting worsen outcomes, a renewed emphasis has been placed on optimizing the perioperative period. Use of preoperative paravertebral block (PVB) has been shown to reduce opioid administration and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in many surgical populations, though its role in reduction mammaplasty remains undefined. Therefore, we seek to evaluate PVB as an adjunct to general anesthesia (GA) for reduction mammaplasty...

Retention of HIV-infected patients in care is crucial to optimizing individual patient outcomes and reducing transmission of HIV. A number of strategies are available to improve linkage to care; among them, the AntiRetroviral Treatment and Access Services intervention should be considered standard of care at the clinic level. With regard to retention in care, the Retention Through Enhanced Personal Contact intervention has been shown to improve retention rates and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Data to Care program has been successful in assisting public health authorities to locate and return to treatment patients presumed to be lost to follow-up...

Childhood adversity (CA) has life-long effects that we are just beginning to understand. The Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) data is a rich resource that could contribute to the knowledge of the impact of CA in the later years but, while a number of CA items are included in MIDUS, a cumulative CA scale based on those items has not been created. Development of a CA scale would create numerous research opportunities within MIDUS and overcome some of the challenges of using a secondary dataset. The present study aimed to demonstrate that a cumulative measure of CA that is valid with older adults could be created using retrospective MIDUS Refresher study data (Ryff et al...

OBJECTIVE Cranioplasty implants should be widely available, low in cost, and customized or easy to mold during surgery. Although autologous bone remains the first choice for repair, it cannot always be used due to infection, fragmentation, bone resorption, or other causes, which led to use of synthetic alternatives. The most frequently used allogenic material for cranial reconstructions with long-term results is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Three-dimensional printing technology has allowed the production of increasingly popular customized, prefabricated implants...

REVIEW
Donatella Tramontano, Francesca De Amicis
A successful aging could be gained by life satisfaction, social functioning, or psychological resources and, definitely, by increasing resistance to diverse age-related pathologies. Nowadays, cancer can be considered an age-related disease since the incidence of most cancers increases with age, rising more rapidly beginning in midlife. Although adults with extended longevity are less likely to develop cancer, it is now emerging that aging and cancer share common molecular links, and thus targeting these mechanisms may be suitable to treat multiple disorders, for the prolonging of healthy aging...
