Article Type: Book Review | First Published: November 11, 2019

Parental Alienation is an important mental condition that professionals in the field, especially those who work with children, adolescents and adults from divorced families should know. Although about thousand three hundred professional articles, book chapters and books, and also empirical studies, exist meanwhile (see website www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/pasg) from all over the world, there is still considerable controversy about the existence of Parental Alienation. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel (DSM-5) of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Parental Alienation (PA) is a...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 04, 2019

Athletes in the National Basketball Association (NBA) are at risk of sport-related injuries due to the frequent jumping, pivoting, and overhead movements that constantly strain the musculoskeletal system. A comprehensive understanding of how shoulder injuries affect athletes during their NBA careers and into retirement has not been studied. The purpose of this study is to utilize a survey to evaluate the epidemiology of shoulder injuries in NBA players and determine the impact that these injuries have on post-retirement function and Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL). A survey encompassin...

Prospective Study of Autologous Adipose Derived Stromal Vascular Fraction Containing Stem Cells for the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis

Mark Berman, MD, Elliot Lander, MD, Thomas Grogan, MD, Walter O'Brien, MD, Jonathan Braslow, MD, Shawntae Dowell and Sean Berman, MS

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 29, 2019

The management of osteoarthritis of the knee runs the spectrum of care from a variety of conservative treatments often culminating in total joint arthroplasty. We initiated a large prospective study to evaluate whether autologous adipose derived stromal vascular fraction (SVF - rich in stem cells) therapy is a safe and effective option. A patient funded prospective study of 2,586 patients from a network of physicians participated in an IRB approved study using autologous stromal vascular fraction SVF (ClinicalTrials.gov as NCT10953523). All patients were treated with a standardized surgical pr...

Selection of Cells for Parkinson's Disease Cell-Therapy

Ashok Chakraborty and Anil Diwan

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 25, 2019

Availability of DOPA in situ and thereafter Dopamine (DA) is the main therapeutic approach to treat the Parkinson's Disease (PD). Human neural stem cells (hNSCs), a good source of DA synthesis and release, have long been demonstrated to be a promising candidate for treating PD. However limited cell sourcing and low-growth rate are major concern of its applicability. Different types of other stem cells or reprogrammed somatic cells, including induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), holds tremendous potentiality for DA synthesis and the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, several iss...

Systematic Review with Meta-Analyses of Natural Products in the Treatment of Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis

Katherine S Phillips, DDS, DABDSM, Wallace C Carrillo Medina, DMD, Joeseph M Potter, BA, DDS, Kamal Al-Eryani, DDS, PhD and Reyes Enciso, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 27, 2019

Conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of natural products in the treatment of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) and their effect on the size and pain levels compared with placebos. Randomized placebo-controlled trials were identified up to January 2019 in PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and Cochrane Library. Cochrane Risk of Bias tool was used to assess the risk of bias. The search yielded 248 unduplicated references. After evaluation, 11 studies with 694 subjects with RAS were included. One was considered low risk of bias, two were considered high risk and eight were considered uncl...

Orthotic Intervention on Flexible Flat Feet and Lower Extremity Exertional Pain during Normal Overland Walking

Bruce N Elliott, PT, EdD, DPT, MS, COMT and Juan C Garbalosa, PhD, PT

Article Type: Rese arc h art icle | First Published: December 04, 2019

A biomechanical foot orthosis is commonly used for the management of lower extremity injuries that are related to flexible flat feet. The purpose of this study was to document the effect of a maximal arch supination stabilization (MASS) orthosis on foot motion in individuals with flexible flat feet who experience lower extremity exertional pain. 30 subjects with flexible flat feet and lower extremity exertional pain received a pair of custom orthoses. Intersegmental foot kinematics were recorded during normal overland walking in 2 footwear conditions - a sandal with an orthosis (SWO) and a san...

The aim of this study was to confirm the efficacy and tolerability of Quetiapine XR as monotherapy in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and determine the optimal dosing regimen to maximize efficacy and reduce non-compliance due to side effects. This was a 12-week study with MDD subjects. The primary outcome measure was the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAMD) total score comparing baseline to end of treatment at week 12. Other assessments included the Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (HAMA), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), and Perceived Str...

Retzius Sparing (RS) Robotic Assisted Radical Prostatectomy (RARP) and Retzius Space Reconstruction Technique after RARP Improve Urinary Continence Compared to Conventional RARP (C-RARP): Systematic Review and Metanalysis

William Pertuz Genes, Maria Claudia bicudo, Pablo Miranda Machado, Pericles Rios Auad, Liseth Echavez Pacheco, Hamilton de Campos Zampolli, Igor Nunes da Silva, Daniel Coser Gomes and Marcos Tobias-Machado

Article Type: Research article | First Published: November 25, 2019

Several parameters are important to evaluate good oncological and functional results after robotic prostatectomy. We hypothesize that preservation or reconstruction of Retzius space can be valuable for better results outcomes, especially in terms of early continence recovery. In October 2018, electronic searches were conducted in the following databases: Cochrane, EMBASE, PubMed and Google Scholar. Manual searches in the reference lists of all the reviews and the relevant studies were identified. Searches of abstracts of relevant congresses were made. To locate additional studies, experts in t...
