RATIONALE: Acute calculous cholecystitis is a prevalent disease whose diagnosis and management still face significant debate. Although the overall incidence of gallstone disease is 18.8% in European women aged 30 to 69 years, there is little data and experience in managing acute calculous cholecystitis in populations over 80 years old. The incidence of acute cholecystitis among the elderly is probably increasing. For the reason, we here highlight the advantages and disadvantage of various treatment and management opens based on a 96-year-old patient...

To study the factors associated with poorer health-related quality of life at 1-year post-allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT), a secondary analysis of a prospective feasibility study was performed. Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory questionnaires were collected in 76 children undergoing alloHCT at baseline (within 30 d before transplantation), day 100, 6 months, and 12 months posttransplantation. The global score improved post-HCT (baseline: 67.1, 12 mo: 76.6). Females (odds ratio, 6...

First-line diagnostic investigations for endometriosis are physical examination and pelvic ultrasound. The second-line investigations are: targeted pelvic examination performed by an expert clinician, transvaginal ultrasound performed by an expert physician sonographer (radiologist or gynaecologist), and pelvic MRI. Management of endometriosis is recommended when the disease has a functional impact. Recommended first-line hormonal therapies for the management of endometriosisrelated pain are combined hormonal contraceptives (CHCs) or the 52mg levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (IUS)...

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a disorder of sleep breathing that is a result of recurrent and intermittent hypoxia during sleep induced by the repeated partial or complete collapse of the upper airway, eventually causing chronic intermittent hypoxia. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is divided into non-alcoholic fatty liver and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Animal and human studies showed that obesity is associated with chronic liver hypoxia, even in the presence of systemic normoxia causing inflammation and release of cytokines...

Background The prevalence of chronic non-malignant pain in developed countries is high, ranging from 14% to 50%. Patients with chronic pain are active users of health-care services and they report impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL) when compared with the general population. Psychological distress has been identified as one of the risk factors for pain chronicity. Depression, anxiety and negative beliefs are associated with pain interference and perceived disability. Multidisciplinary pain management (MPM) aims to rehabilitating chronic pain patients by addressing both physical, psychological, social and occupational factors related to the pain problem...

Background and purpose Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is a debilitating condition among women with a major impact on health-related quality of life, work productivity and health care utilisation. The exact prevalence of chronic pelvic pain is not known, but 3.8% is commonly suggested. Musculoskeletal dysfunction is frequently cited as a possible aetiology. Physiotherapy is therefore recommended as one treatment modality. The aim of this systematic review was to source and critically evaluate the evidence for an effect of physiotherapy on pain, physical activity and quality of life in the treatment of female CPP...

INTRODUCTION: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is common among older multiparous females but rarely reported in active, young girls. OBJECTIVES: Our hypothesis is: physically active adolescent females develop pelvic floor laxity demonstrable on upright VCUG. Our objectives are to (1) increase awareness of SUI in young females, (2) test our hypothesis with an upright VCUG, and (3) report effectiveness of step-wise management. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review was performed of nulliparous girls with only SUI seen from 2000 to 2015, who were evaluated with upright voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) (bladder descent defined as ≥2 cm drop of bladder neck below pubic ramus at capacity)...

BACKGROUND: For those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, ill-addressed pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) following surgery can result in malnutrition related complications that may impact on predict mortality and morbidity. The use of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) is recommended and often demands a degree of patient self-management. Understanding more about how this treatment is managed is fundamental to optimising care. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to explore patient self-management of PERT following surgery for pancreatic cancer...

REVIEW
Jessica Abramowitz, Vin Tangpricha
Transfeminine individuals are treated with estradiol and anti-androgen agents to transition to a more feminine appearance. The physical changes that occur with estradiol therapy include breast development, body fat redistribution, and decreased muscle mass. Transfeminine treatment regimens require monitoring and dose adjustments to achieve appropriate physiologic targets to enhance feminization and decrease risk of adverse outcomes. Adverse effects associated with estradiol use include thromboembolic disease, macroprolactinoma, breast cancer, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, cholelithiasis, and hypertriglyceridemia...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To evaluate the use of virtual reality (VR) therapies as a clinical tool for the management of acute and chronic pain. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent articles support the hypothesis that VR therapies can effectively distract patients who suffer from chronic pain and from acute pain stimulated in trials. Clinical studies yield promising results in the application of VR therapies to a variety of acute and chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, phantom limb pain, and regional specific pain from past injuries and illnesses...

This article describes a family that had to deal with grief from losing a family member. They sought help for 13-yr-old Katie's prolonged pain following a sprain. The family's unresolved grief over their second child's passing continued to emerge, peeping through the small talk, the wry smiles, the daily efforts to move and do, despite physical pain. As the demands of Katie's rehabilitation stripped away reserves of politeness and energy, the family's emotional pain became more fully uncovered.The author describes the 6-week course of physical and occupational therapies, pain medicine management, and individual and family behavioral health support...

The development of high-titre inhibitory antibodies (inhibitors) against factor VIII (FVIII) remains a challenge in the management of patients with haemophilia A (HA). Patients with high-titre inhibitors are more likely to experience uncontrolled bleeding, physical disability from chronic arthropathy and premature death compared with those without this complication. Immune tolerance induction (ITI), utilizing repeated infusions of FVIII, is an effective therapeutic approach to eliminating inhibitory antibodies...
