Patient Health Literacy and Perception of Provider Communication: Is there a Link?

Erin Vaughn, Kristie Hadden and Benjamin Doolittle

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 21, 2015

Inadequate health literacy is a common problem that contributes to poor patient-provider communication. Health literacy screening and specific provider communication practices may be important in clinics where patients are at high risk for inadequate health literacy. This study assessed patients' health literacy and their perception of provider communication practices in a primary care residency program clinic serving an urban multi-ethnic population. A convenience sample of 324 patients in an u...

Safeguarding Public Health from Higher Education

Doug Dix

Article Type: Perspective | First Published: October 19, 2015

It is common to assume that colleges and universities provide service to the public. In the U.S., these institutions are granted tax-exemption on this assumption. In times long past, education, in itself, may have been a public service. But it isn't that anymore as the unintended consequences of progress degrade human habitat and social fabric. Education for progress could easily do more harm than good....

Getting them off the Path toward Chronic Disease: Understanding One NJ Community College Students' Food Choices and Eating Habits

Gustave Ado

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 15, 2015

The Availability of Ultrasound for Infants with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip in Pennsylvania

Shane Lavin and William Hennrikus

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: October 13, 2015

Currently, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that serial clinical examinations using the Ortolani and Barlow Technique be performed of the hips of all infants at birth and at well baby examinations until the child is of walking age-about 1 year of life.

Nasal Glomangiopericytoma: Case Report and Clinicohistopathologic Overview

Sheldon P. Hersh and William H. Rodgers

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 25, 2015

Glomangiopericytoma, also known as sinonasal hemangiopericytoma, is a rare sinonasal neoplasm that commonly occurs during the sixth or seventh decade of life, often presenting with complaints of nasal congestion and epistaxis. Identified in less than 0.5% of all sinonasal tumors, this typically indolent lesion is a different tumor from the far more common and aggressive so-called soft tissue hemangiopericytoma that arises in varying sites throughout the body....

A Rare Clinical Presentation of a Somewhat Common Lesion

Steve Manzon, Malcolm Zola, Jared S Weiner, Rawle F Philbert, Kevin R. Torske, Donald B MacDougall, and Daniel Nadeau

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 18, 2015

Clinicians are often faced with diagnosing routine oral and maxillofacial pathology. Experience and training make such tasks relatively easy. Establishing differential diagnoses, and ruling out the most unlikely, usually will lead to an appropriate treatment plan. Occasionally, a pathologic presentation may significantly differ from the expected, and stump even an experienced clinician. It is imperative, when encountering an unknown or unusual lesion, to return to basics and approach the entity ...

Segmental Bone Muscle and Skin Cross Leg Flap for the Treatment of Posttraumatic Infected Segmental Bone Defect in a Child - A Case Report

Piotr Pedzisz, Ireneusz Babiak, Jakub Janowicz and Mateusz Kulig

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 21, 2015

A mangled limb in a pediatric patient produces therapeutic dilemma whether to amputate or salvage greater than in adult. We herein present a case of a 10 year old child with high energy injury to both lower limbs. The bone muscle and skin segment of the limb planned for amputation has been used as a 'spare part' for the contralateral shin defect in order to save at least one weight bearing limb. The cross leg flap has been successful. The patient walks without limp using PTB prosthesis....

Managing Fractures at the Thoracolumbar Junction in Developing Nations: A Review of 89 Cases

Bert Park

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 21, 2015

Fractures at the thoracolumbar junction are the most commonly encountered spine injuries in developing countries. Despite the devastating consequences for those with concomitant neurologic deficits, within hospitals having limited resources there remains an attitude akin to 'therapeutic nihilism'; i.e. simply keeping these patients at prolonged bedrest and then bracing them, while 'hoping for the best'. Over an 18-year period encompassing some 100 working/teaching trips abroad to underserved are...

Isolated Ovarian Metastasis in a Woman with Prior History of Superficial Bladder Cancer

Kathleen Mahoney, Mamta Gupta and Akash Patnaik

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 12, 2015

Primary transitional cell carcinoma of the ovary is a rare form of ovarian cancer, which has many features in common with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Here we describe a case of metastatic transitional cell carcinoma to the ovary in a patient with a remote history of primary superficial urothelial carcinoma. Metastasis from a superficial urothelial carcinoma is exceedingly rare. CK7/CK20 positivity is not typical of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the ovary, thus co-expressio...
