Partially Thrombosed Giant Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery Aneurysm Mimicking a Fourth Ventricular Tumour

Taofiq Sanusi, William Owiti, Juraj Schwab and Ashraf Abouharb

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 24, 2021

Posterior circulation aneurysms are less common compared to the anterior circulation aneurysm. Dissection distal Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery, PICA, aneurysm is very uncommon. In this case report, we describe an adult who had distal PICA aneurysm in the 4th ventricle which radiologically and symptomatically mimics a fourth ventricular mass lesion. Our aim is to add to the literature about rare but possible differential diagnosis of 4th ventricular tumour. A 43-year-old lady presented wit...

Spontaneous Intracystic Hemorrhage in an Adult with Cerebellopontine Angle Arachnoid Cyst and Management: A Case Report

Joel Passer, MD, Anand Kaul, MD and Rami O Almefty, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 24, 2021

Arachnoid cysts are common findings on neuroimaging and account for approximately 1% of all intracranial lesions. The cerebellopontine angle is the second most common location. When arachnoid cysts become symptomatic due to cyst growth, or rarely, cyst rupture, they create mass effect on adjacent neurovascular structures and may require neurosurgical management. This involves a posterior fossa decompression and cyst fenestration with or without cyst fluid diversion. We present a case of a 40-yea...

5A’s Behavioral Model Framework on Weight Management

Gabrielle Allsup, FNP-BC and Melissa R Penkalski, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC, AE-C

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 21, 2021

Research shows that the United States adult obesity rate is at the highest national rates ever recorded. These numbers have substantially increased since 2008. Obesity-related health conditions include heart disease, stroke, diabetes and certain types of cancer. This disease is preventable, and can be reversed if providers take action now. Research shows that obesity can be managed with diet, exercise and sometimes medications, but education needs to start at the primary care level. This project...

Evaluation of My Nutrition Index in an IBD Patient Population

Chris Gennings, PhD, Laura Manning, MPH, RDN, CDN, Laurie Keefer, PhD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 24, 2021

Measuring overall dietary nutritional value necessary for wellness is complex for healthy individuals, and even more so for patients suffering from complex diseases such as Crohn’s Disease. Clinical dieticians are challenged to provide beneficial dietary advice balanced against using incremental changes in patients’ selected diets to increase long-term adherence to dietary improvements. The My Nutrition Index (MNI) is a validated, personalized nutritional scale based on personal characterist...

Performing Hip Fracture Repair within 48 Hours from Admission May Decrease Mortality, the Israeli National Program for Quality Indicators Experience

Yaron Niv, Michael Kuniavsky, Alexander Konson, Olga Bronshtein, Nethanel Goldschmidt, Shuli Hanhart and Hannah Mahalla

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 23, 2021

The data were obtained from the Israeli National Program for Quality Indicators. The denominator included all the patients 65-year-old or older who was admitted and operated because of hip fracture, and the numerator included those who underwent surgical repair within 48 hours of admission. There has been a significant improvement in the national level of compliance within 48 hour time span- from 71% in 2013 to 87% in 2018. The success rate for total hip replacement (THR) was 53%, 68%, 74%, 81%...

Knowledge, Attitudes and Treatment Practices of Medical Doctors towards Care of Elderly Patients Accessing Clinical Care at Hospitals in Kampala Uganda

Daniel Orit, Patricia Ntege, Dorah Nakayiwa, Jemimah Nambooze, Sebastian Olikira and Stephen Kabwama

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 23, 2021

The global trend towards an increasing aging population demands for adequate geriatric medical care services to cater for health needs of the aging population seeking clinical care in hospitals. In Uganda, geriatric care as a specialty in medicine is still at infancy stage, and this is further worsened by the fact that the current curricula followed in training health workers lacks a component dedicated to elderly care. There is therefore need to assess knowledge, attitudes and treatment practic...

Daichi Hayashi, Michel D. Crema, Mohamed Jarraya, Cheri A. Blauwet, Rafael Heiss, Frank W. Roemer, Wayne E. Derman and Ali Guermazi

Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: June 18, 2021

Muscle injuries may affect elite athletes including those competing at the Paralympic Games. We aimed to describe the frequencies, anatomic distribution, and severity of muscle injuries involving Paralympic athletes during the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Summer Paralympic Games. Imaging-depicted muscle injuries in Paralympic athletes were identified upon retrospective review of all MRI studies performed at the Games. Images were evaluated retrospectively by five board-certified musculoskeletal radiologi...

Effects of Moderate-Intensity Intermittent Circuit Training in Obese and Overweight Individuals

Irene-Chrysovalanto Themistocleous, Petros Agathangelou and Manos Stefanakis

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 14, 2021

Obesity has become a serious problem in Western societies and is associated with several health problems and reduced quality of life. The purpose of this randomised, clinical trial is to investigate the effects of a moderate-intensity, intermittent, circuit training program on a range of cardiovascular risk factors such as body composition, biochemical and physiological variables and aerobic capacity in obese and overweight individuals. A total of 30 participants were selected and 15 of them per...

Hemithorax Opacification & Large Volume Thoracentesis: A Novel Predictor of Re-Expansion Pulmonary Edema

Victor E Prado, MD, Shasha X Chen, DO, Anupam Basu, MD, Connor J Wakefield, BS, Shashvat Sukhal, MD, Sanjay A Patel, MD and Sean B Smith, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 21, 2021

Symptomatic pleural effusions are a common reason for hospital visits. Guidelines recommend draining < 1.5 L with large-volume thoracentesis (LVT) to avoid re-expansion pulmonary edema (REPE). Hemithorax opacification by pleural fluid on chest X-ray (CXR) has not been studied as predictor of REPE. We evaluated the incidence of REPE using hemithorax opacification on CXR. We reviewed LVTs with pre- and post-procedural chest CXR from 2008 to 2019 at a tertiary urban hospital. Image J software was u...

Assessment of Chest X-Ray Utilization for the Evaluation of Non-Traumatic Chest Pain in an Academic Emergency Department

Garrett Rucker, Ricci Kalayanamitra, MD and Ravindra Gopaul, MD

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: June 30, 2021

Overutilization of chest X-rays (CXR) is costly, inefficient and results in increased radiation exposure. Several studies have proposed clinical decision rules (CDR) for chest X-ray utilization in non-traumatic chest pain patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED). However, CDRs are often not one size fits all and may differ based on population variability. The purpose of this study is to 1) Evaluate CXR utilization among ED patients suspected of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) presentin...
