Magnetic Resonance Imaging Depicted Muscle Injuries in Athletes Participating in the Rio De Janeiro 2016 Summer Paralympic Games

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...

A Qualitative Methodology to Support the Evaluation of Novel Treatments for Hyperphagia in People with Prader-Willi Syndrome

Mindy Leffler, MEd, Sonya J Elder, PhD, Siri Bolding, PhD, Megan Hefner, MS, Jennifer L Miller, MD Parisa Salehi, MD, Anthony J Holland, MD, Anish Bhatnagar, MD, Kristen Yen, MS, Patricia C Hirano, MPH and Kristina Davis, PhD

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

Assessing change in symptoms affecting people with Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS), a rare disease, is complicated by the influence of different levels of food security procedures and the impact of immediate circumstances on symptom presentation and severity. We report on the use of qualitative interviews to collect information on behavioral change and on the impact of factors specific to individual participants with PWS in a clinical trial. Soleno Therapeutics’ Phase 3 program consists of a doubl...

Repetitive Triggered Somatosensory Discrimination as a Potential Treatment for Treatment Resistant Depression and Anxiety: A Pilot Study

Abraham Shoshani

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

Depression and anxiety are the most common mental disorders in Israel. Current pharmacological treatments are frequently insufficient in reducing symptoms, particularly for treatment resistant depression and anxiety. Considerable evidence has accumulated in clinical settings and research studies both with animals and humans that has implicated the involvement of the primary and secondary somatosensory and insular cortices with the regulation of emotions. Awareness deficits and irregularities of ...

The Association between Gratitude and Depression: A Meta- Analysis

Jo A Iodice, John M Malouff and Nicola S Schutte

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

Many studies have explored the association between gratitude and depression, but no meta-analysis has been reported. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to fill that gap. The meta-analysis synthesized the association in 70 reported effect sizes from 62 published and unpublished articles, involving a total of 26,427 child, adolescent, and adult participants. The studies were completed by different research teams, using different samples, different measures, and various correlational research de...

Underdiagnosed Delirium on Elderly Patients in the Emergency Room Principal Author

Sanchez Martinez Fatima Alondra, Ruiz Mondragon Alberto, Marín Nieto Jaime and Villaseñor Talavera Yael Sebastián

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 28, 2021

Delirium is a fluctuant, transitional and acute affection of cognition and attention, with multifactorial aetiologies. It is a medical emergency and requires an integral evaluation to identify the underlying causes. In elderly people, over 65 years old, the incidence of Delirium oscillates greatly between 14% to 24% at the moment of hospitalization and 6% to 56% during the time of hospitalization. The prevalence of Delirium acquired in the community oscillates from 1% to 2%. However, this preval...

COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Induced Troponinemia - Is the Vaccine a Cardiac Stressor?

Sameer Acharya, MD, Malcolm Brand, MD, FACC, Janette Lee, MD, Douglas MacQueen, MD, Angela Arbach, MD and Samjhauta Bhattarai, MBBS

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 03, 2021

There have been emerging concerns of myocarditis with Covid-19 vaccines recently which could be from inflammatory or immunogenic response to vaccine components or something else which is yet to be understood. The most common side effects of the vaccine noted in phase three trials were local reactions and few self-remitting systemic reactions. But we cannot overlook the emerging cardiac manifestations associated with COVID-19 vaccine. Here, we report a young healthy male presenting with atypical ...

An Application of the Patient Rule-Induction Method to Detect Clinically Meaningful Subgroups from Failed Phase III Clinical Trials

Greg Dyson

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 28, 2021

Phase III superiority clinical trials have negative results (new treatment is not statistically better than standard of care) due to a number of factors, including patient and disease heterogeneity. However, even a treatment regime that fails to show population-level clinical improvement will have a subgroup of patients that attain a measurable clinical benefit. The goal of this paper is to modify the Patient Rule-Induction Method to identify statistically significant subgroups, defined by clini...
