BMJ Case Reports; Mantelakis A, Mughal A et. al.

Jun 9th, 2021 - Vascularised epiphysial fibula bone transfers in the paediatric population provides a solution to growth suppression in extremity reconstruction. We report a case of an anatomical variant to the epiphysial blood supply that has never been reported in literature. A 6-year-old girl underwent a free vascularised fibula flap for reconstruction of her right humerous following osteosarcoma resection....

https://doi.org/10.1002/ajmg.a.61859
American Journal of Medical Genetics. Part A; Giangiobbe S, Caraffi SG et. al.

Oct 13th, 2020 - Wiedemann-Steiner syndrome (WDSTS) is a rare autosomal dominant condition caused by heterozygous loss of function variants in the KMT2A (MLL) gene, encoding a lysine N-methyltransferase that mediates a histone methylation pattern specific for epigenetic transcriptional activation. WDSTS is characterized by a distinctive facial phenotype, hypertrichosis, short stature, developmental delay, intel...

Fatal farm injuries to Canadian children.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ypmed.2020.106233
Preventive Medicine; Voaklander DC, Rudolphi JM et. al.

Aug 18th, 2020 - Children on Canadian farms are at high risk for fatal injury. Ongoing surveillance of these deaths is required to affirm recurrent patterns of injury, and to determine whether historical approaches to prevention have resulted in declines in the occurrence of these traumatic events. We analyzed epidemiological patterns and trends in the occurrence of fatal pediatric farm injuries over 23 years. ...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhsa.2020.02.019
The Journal of Hand Surgery; Tan RES, Lim JX et. al.

Apr 25th, 2020 - Displaced pediatric phalangeal neck fractures are regarded as unstable, and hence, surgical fixation is traditionally recommended. In our experience, some patients with displaced fractures treated nonsurgically healed with a good clinical outcome and no further displacement. We studied the outcome of displaced phalangeal neck fractures treated nonsurgically with attention to the change in fract...

Dec 1st, 2019 - Cirrhosis is a late stage of hepatic fibrosis that has resulted in widespread distortion of normal hepatic architecture. Cirrhosis is characterized by regenerative nodules surrounded by dense fibrotic tissue. Symptoms may not develop for years and are often nonspecific (eg, anorexia, fatigue, weight loss). Late manifestations include portal hypertension, ascites, and, when decompensation occurs...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6855505
PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases; Chouhan D, Barani Devi T et. al.

Nov 5th, 2019 - Development of gastric diseases such as gastritis, peptic ulcer and gastric cancer is often associated with several biotic and abiotic factors. Helicobacter pylori infection is such a well-known biotic factor. However, not all H. pylori-infected individuals develop gastric diseases and not all individuals with gastric diseases are infected with H. pylori. Therefore, it is possible that other ga...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6711218
Emerging Infectious Diseases; Oligbu G, Collins S et. al.

Aug 24th, 2019 - We describe the effects of the 7-valent (PCV7) and 13-valent (PCV13) pneumococcal conjugate vaccines on pneumococcal meningitis in England and Wales during July 1, 2000-June 30, 2016. Overall, 84,473 laboratory-confirmed invasive pneumococcal disease cases, including 4,160 (4.9%) cases with meningitis, occurred. PCV7 implementation in 2006 did not lower overall pneumococcal meningitis incidence...

Social media's enduring effect on adolescent life satisfaction.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6534991
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the Un... Orben A, Dienlin T et. al.

May 8th, 2019 - In this study, we used large-scale representative panel data to disentangle the between-person and within-person relations linking adolescent social media use and well-being. We found that social media use is not, in and of itself, a strong predictor of life satisfaction across the adolescent population. Instead, social media effects are nuanced, small at best, reciprocal over time, gender spec...

Apr 27th, 2019 - Quantifying the magnitude of disaster exposure and trauma-related symptoms among youths is critical for deployment of psychological services in underresourced settings. Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, resulting in massive destruction and unprecedented mortality. To determine the magnitude of disaster exposure and mental health outcomes among Puerto Rican yout...

Arthritis & Rheumatology (Hoboken, N.J.); Hinks A, Marion MC et. al.

Feb 10th, 2018 - Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) comprises 7 heterogeneous categories of chronic childhood arthritides. Approximately 5% of children with JIA have rheumatoid factor (RF)-positive arthritis, which phenotypically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
