M Takano, K Kasahara, K Sugahara, A Watanabe, S Yoshida, T Shibahara
BACKGROUND: Because of changing surgical procedures in the fields of oral and maxillofacial surgery, new methods for surgical education are needed and could include recent advances in digital technology. Many doctors have attempted to use digital technology as educational tools for surgical training, and movies have played an important role in these attempts. We have been using a 3D full high-definition (full-HD) camcorder to record movies of intra-oral surgeries. METHOD: The subjects were medical students and doctors receiving surgical training who did not have actual surgical experience (n = 67)...

BACKGROUND: Access to highly specialized health care services and support to meet the patient's specific needs is critical for health outcome, especially during age-related transitions within the health care system such as with adolescents entering adult medicine. Being affected by an orphan disease complicates the situation in several important respects. Long distances to dedicated institutions and scarcity of knowledge, even among medical doctors, may present major obstacles for proper access to health care services and health chances...

Primary amyloidosis of the urinary bladder is a rare disease, with only approximately 200 cases reported in the literature. We herein present a case of amyloidosis of the urinary bladder with painful gross hematuria. Pelvic Computed Tomography showed uneven thickening of the bladder wall suspicious of neoplastic lesion. Cystoscopy and transurethral resection were performed. Congo-red staining confirmed amyloidosis it was. Postoperative recovery was good and close follow-up was recommended after discharged. Amyloidosis is usually benign, while it can masquerade as a malignancy...

Regional techniques provides excellent post operative pain relief in pediatric patients. Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is a newer regional technique available. Though there is emerging evidence proving the efficacy of TAP blocks, there is limited literature on use of TAP catheters in pediatric patients. TAP catheters were placed in two children following laparotomy with transverse incisions and in both epidural was avoided, with good post operative pain relief. Ultrasound guidance was used in one child, while in the other the catheter was placed under direct vision after dissection of the plane between transversus abdominis and internal oblique...

The basis of a just and moral economic model for health care is examined in the context of Catholic social teaching. The performance of the current model of "central economic planning" in medicine is evaluated in terms of the core principles of the social doctrine of the Catholic Church and compared to freedom-based economic models. It is clear that the best way to respect and serve human dignity, the common good, subsidiarity, and solidarity in medicine is through the establishment of a true, free-market health economy...

Li Xiong, Huiqi Li, Liang Xu
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The good quality of color retinal image is essential for doctors to make a reliable diagnose in clinics. Due to major reasons like acquisition process and retinal diseases, most retinal images can show poor illuminance, blur and low contrast, further impeding the process of identifying the underlying retinal condition. METHODS: Image formation model of scattering is proposed to enhance color retinal images in this paper. Two parameters of this model, background illuminance and transmission map, are estimated based on extracted background and foreground...

INTRODUCTION: Laboratory investigations account for significant percentage of healthcare expenses. Every hospital and laboratory especially in the government sector wants to cut down the expenses on reports and offer inferior printouts of reports. The debate of printing attractive reports (clientele aspiration) Vs costs cutting (managerial issues) continues. It becomes the moral responsibility of doctors to guide the management into implementing an effective and economical option of report transcription...

Child maltreatment, including all forms of mal¬treatment, remains a major public health problem in high-income countries. Healthcare professionals only contribute to a small proportion of reports. In French-speaking Belgium, almost 100 % of school-aged children are regularly submitted to periodical school health visits. The school health doctor is well placed to recognize neglected or abused children. Based on international good practice recommendations, this paper proposes means for the detection and management of child abuse in the context of school medicine...

Medicine offers trainee physicians many different possibilities to practice their vocation. Young doctors should try to assess their own motivation and skills as precisely as possible, especially regarding a more theoretical, more practical, more academic or a purely patient-oriented career path. However, different phases of life may bring about changes in priorities. The course for the direction of a career path is often set early on. This is particularly true during the early career phase when institutions, such as medical faculties, have the responsibility to provide authoritative consulting and good mentorship...

Poxviruses cause many diseases in humans and animals worldwide, and there is a need for vaccines with improved safety and good efficacy. In addition, poxvirus vectors are widely used as recombinant vaccines for various infectious diseases and as recombinant and oncolytic vaccines for cancer. One concern with poxvirus vaccine vectors is that some poxviruses can infect a developing fetus and cause fetal loss or congenital disease. This can be an issue both for patients receiving a vaccine and for pregnant health care providers, including doctors, nurses, and veterinarians, who might receive accidental exposure to the poxvirus by injection or during patient care...

BACKGROUND: Mobile health (mHealth) apps have shown to improve health indicators, but concerns remain about the inclusion of populations from low- and medium-income countries (LMIC) in these new technologies. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a chronic condition with a challenging management. Previous studies have shown socioeconomic differences in the prescription of anticoagulant treatment and shared decision strategies are encouraged to achieve better outcomes. mHealth can aid both doctors and patients in this matter...

The quality of ultrasound (US) images for the obstetric examination is crucial for accurate biometric measurement. However, manual quality control is a labor intensive process and often impractical in a clinical setting. To improve the efficiency of examination and alleviate the measurement error caused by improper US scanning operation and slice selection, a computerized fetal US image quality assessment (FUIQA) scheme is proposed to assist the implementation of US image quality control in the clinical obstetric examination...
