Belly fat or bloating? New insights into the physical appearance of St Anthony of Padua.
PloS One; Mongillo J, Vescovo G et. al.

Dec 22nd, 2021 - Over the centuries, iconographic representations of St Anthony of Padua, one of the most revered saints in the Catholic world, have been inspired by literary sources, which described the Saint as either naturally corpulent or with a swollen abdomen due to dropsy (i.e. fluid accumulation in the body cavities). Even recent attempts to reconstruct the face of the Saint have yielded discordant resu...

The rise and fall of rationality in language.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the Un... Scheffer M, van de Leemput I et. al.

Dec 18th, 2021 - The surge of post-truth political argumentation suggests that we are living in a special historical period when it comes to the balance between emotion and reasoning. To explore if this is indeed the case, we analyze language in millions of books covering the period from 1850 to 2019 represented in Google nGram data. We show that the use of words associated with rationality, such as "determine"...

Noma (cancrum oris): A scoping literature review of a neglected disease (1843 to 2021).
PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases; Farley E, Mehta U et. al.

Dec 15th, 2021 - Noma (cancrum oris) is an ancient but neglected and poorly understood preventable disease, afflicting the most disenfranchised populations in the world. It is a devastating and often fatal condition that requires urgent and intensive clinical and surgical care, often difficult to access as most cases of noma occur in resource-limited settings. We conducted a scoping review of the literature pub...

PloS One; Li Y, Zhang C et. al.

Dec 15th, 2021 - Situated at a geographic crossroads, the eastern Tianshan Mountain region in northwest China is crucial to understanding various economic, social, and cultural developments on the Eurasian Steppes. One promising way to gain a better knowledge of ancient subsistence economy, craft production, and social change in the eastern Tianshan Mountain region is to study the artifact assemblages from arch...

Melanoma trials that defined surgical management.
Journal of Surgical Oncology; Faries MB

Dec 14th, 2021 - Treatment of regional lymph nodes in melanoma has been controversial for more than a century. A series of clinical trials evaluating elective lymph node dissection and then sentinel lymph node biopsy have helped define the current standard of care. These trials resulted in increasingly selective application of surgical intervention for regional lymph nodes in melanoma. First by focusing on opti...

Breast cancer-The catalyst of contemporary trials design.
Journal of Surgical Oncology; Al-Hilli Z, Weiss A et. al.

Dec 14th, 2021 - Surgical trials in breast cancer have catalyzed contemporary trial design for solid organ cancers and are a prime example of surgeons taking the lead in clinical trial design. Surgeons have lead trials that have improved patient outcomes and quality of life without sacrificing oncologic safety. We have evolved from radical mastectomy to breast conservation and sentinel node biopsy. Contemporary...

Journal of Surgical Oncology; Sharib J, Slingluff CL et. al.

Dec 14th, 2021 - Since the observation that clearance of all visible and microscopic tumors from cutaneous melanoma is critical to prevent a recurrence, wide surgical margins have been central to surgical dogma. In the last several decades, more conservative margin widths have been vigorously studied by surgical investigators to lessen wound complications, the need for reconstruction, and healthcare costs. This...

When I use a word . . . . The Precautionary Principle: a brief history.
BMJ (Clinical Research Ed.); Aronson JK,

Dec 12th, 2021 - Two ideas precede the modern Precautionary Principle. First, that prevention is better than cure, exemplified by an aphorism in an early 13th century book of Jewish aphorisms, the Sefer Hasidim: "Who is a skilled physician? He who can prevent sickness." Secondly, Thomas Sydenham's 17th century assertion that in healthcare it is important above all not to do harm, "primum est ut non nocere." The...
