Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. Multiple interventions have been put in place to minimize this occurrence. Despite current recommendations including medical management, cervical length screening, and transvaginal cerclage a substantial number of women still experience preterm birth. For those patients, experts recommend a transabdominal cerclage. In our systematic review, we compare 26 studies (1116 patients) on transabdominal cerclage placed via laparotomy (TAC-lap) to 15 studies (728 patients) on transabdominal cerclage placed via laparoscopy (TAC-lsc)...

BACKGROUND: For patients undergoing spine surgery, the literature attributes significant increased perioperative risks/adverse events (AE) complications, longer length of stay (LOS), and higher 30-day readmission/reoperation rates to those with diabetes. Diabetics are often divided into those with insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM), and non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDD). However, other series also compare those with uncontrolled diabetes (UCDM) vs. those with controlled DM (CDM). METHODS: We found a marked variation in the size and quality of studies identified in PubMed regarding the impact of diabetes on spinal surgery (e...

PURPOSE: Evaluation of cervical spine injury (CSI) in children requires rapid, yet accurate assessment of damage. Given concerns of radiation exposure, expert consensus advises that computed tomography (CT) should be used sparingly. However, CT can provide superior image resolution and detection of pathology. Herein, we evaluate if X-ray offers equal diagnostic accuracy compared to CT imaging in identifying CSI in children. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study between October 2000 and March 2012 of pediatric patients evaluated for cervical spine injury at a level 1 trauma center...

Women screened for cervical cancer in Sweden are currently treated under a one-size-fits-all programme, which has been successful in reducing the incidence of cervical cancer but does not use all of the participants' available medical information. This study aimed to use women's complete cervical screening histories to identify diagnostic patterns that may indicate an increased risk of developing cervical cancer. A nationwide case-control study was performed where cervical cancer screening data from 125,476 women with a maximum follow-up of 10 years were evaluated for patterns of SNOMED diagnoses...

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common side effect of cancer treatment. No medication has been shown to be effective in the treatment of CIPN. This study aims to integrate the image-based high-content screening, mouse behavior models and mechanistic cell-based assays to discover potential neuroprotective drugs. Among screened compounds, minoxidil showed the most potent neuroprotective effect against paclitaxel, with regard to neurite outgrowth of dorsal root ganglia (DRG). Minoxidil protected mice from thermal insensitivity and alleviated mechanical allodynia in paclitaxel-treated mice...

Cervical length (CL) screening has been successfully utilised to identify asymptomatic women, with a singleton pregnancy, at risk of preterm birth (PTB), thereby providing an opportunity to offer interventions that may reduce that risk. Cervical length screening with ultrasound is most effectively performed with a transvaginal approach. Universal cervical length screening, encompassing all singleton pregnancies rather than restricting screening to those considered at increased risk of PTB, is currently not widely used, despite a growing body of evidence in support of its utility for PTB prevention...
