Ruth E Taylor-Piliae, PhD, RN, FAHA, Chiu-Hsieh (Paul) Hsu, PhD, Hanne Dolan, MSN, RN, PhD Student, Nima Toosizadeh, PhD and Jane Mohler, NP-C, MPH, PhD4

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 16, 2019

A Matter of Balance (MOB) is a national community-based fall prevention program focusing on cognitive restructuring to manage concerns about falling, though does not include a balance-training component. A dual-task balance challenge (DTBC) comprising weight transfer using fixed and random ordering of ankle-reaching balance tasks was added to MOB, to determine of this would lead to reduced fall risk. The study aims were to assess acceptance, satisfaction, safety and adherence to the interventions, examine changes in fall risk, and monitor incident falls for 3-months post-intervention. A singl...

Labial Fusion in a Postmenopausal Woman Presenting with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms: A Case Report

Jung-Ting Lin, Chin-Kai Huang, Lan-Yin Huang, Pei-Ying Wu and Yu-Fang Huang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 12, 2019

Acute or chronic lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) may be secondary to labial fusion in menopause. Early detection and treatment may help prevent progression of the condition. A 61-year-old, nulligravida, postmenopausal woman without sexual experience presented with partial labial fusion accompanying urinary tract infection and urinary retention. There was no follow up and five years later, when a transurethral catheterization failed during surgery for head and neck cancer, complete labial fusion and involuntary urine loss were observed in the patient. Uniquely, she had a sequence of differe...

The Effect of Music Listening on Anxiety and Pain in Chronically and Terminally Ill Patients

Kalen Hendra, MD, Catherine Sims, MD and Soheir Boshra, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 11, 2019

Numerous studies have shown that music therapy (MT) and music listening (ML) can improve patient symptoms such as anxiety, pain, and relaxation. To investigate the effect of multiple ML sessions and the association between patient expectations and outcomes, patients were recruited from two nursing and rehabilitation centers in Roanoke, Virginia. Patients received three 30-minute ML sessions (experimental) or no intervention (control). Patient data included the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS), vitals, and an expectations questionnaire. No difference was observed between the experiment...

Modifiers of Severity in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Sandra P Smieszek

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 14, 2019

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) comprises a complex of neurodevelopmental disorders primarily characterized by deficits in verbal communication, impaired social interaction and repetitive behaviors. The complex genetic architecture of ASD encompasses profound clinical heterogeneity, which poses huge challenges in understanding its pathophysiology. We conducted a large scale association analysis of the MSSNG whole genome sequencing data to elucidate potential modifiers of ASD severity. Using linear regression, we have directly tested the association between 6,198,166 SNPs and Vineland Adaptive B...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 13, 2019

Despite proven benefits of physical activity, adults in the United States may not be meeting activity guidelines for aerobic and strength exercise. There is an association between physical activity and reduced cancer risk, and reduced risk of reoccurrence among cancer survivors. This study aims to describe the odds of meeting aerobic, strength, and combined levels of physical activity based on the recommendations of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans among adults in the U.S., making comparisons by cancer status and demographics. Logistic regression of cross-sectional data from Cy...

Psychosocial Impact of Rosacea on Women

Mohammed Al Abadie, Farlin Asharaff and Dina Al Abadie

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 09, 2019

Rosacea is found in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to mainly affect people from 30 to 60 years of age. It is more prevalent in female population as opposed to male population (with the exception of phymatous rosacea where majority of affected patients are adult male). A 2012 study consisting of 60,042 patients in the United Kingdom identified that 61.5% of patients with rosacea was female. Further studies suggest that rosacea has a greater impact on quality of life of female population compared to male, as female are more prone to distorted perceptions of their body i...
