The best management for 'crescendo biliary colic' is urgent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. (1/187)

Gallbladder disease due to stones is well recognised as falling into two categories, presenting with either chronic symptoms or developing acute cholecystitis or other complications. We describe an intermediate group of 14 patients (11 women, three men, median age 31 years) presenting with 4-14 days of at least daily attacks of resolving biliary colic, who underwent early laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 24 hours of presentation. None had any evidence of acute inflammation, either at laparoscopy or on histology. Their surgery was straightforward with operating times ranging from 35-80 minutes and no complications. Patients with 'crescendo biliary colic' are often young women who can rarely afford invalidity. Rather than the current practice of analgesia for each attack and elective surgery weeks later, they are optimally managed by urgent laparoscopic cholecystectomy, preventing the development of complications and minimising the need for further medical involvement.  (+info)

What is distinct about infants' "colic" cries? (2/187)

AIMS: To investigate (1) whether colic cries are acoustically distinct from pre-feed "hunger" cries; (2) the role of the acoustic properties of these cries versus their other properties in accounting for parents' concerns about colic. DESIGN: From a community sample, infants were selected who met Wessel colic criteria for amounts of crying and whose mothers identified colic bouts. Using acoustic analyses, the most intense segments of nine colic bouts were compared with matched segments from pre-feed cries presumed to reflect hunger. RESULTS: The colic cries did not have a higher pitch or proportion of dysphonation than the pre-feed cries. They did contain more frequent shorter utterances, but these resembled normal cries investigated in other studies. There is no evidence that colic cries have distinct acoustic features that are reproducible across samples and studies, which identify a discrete clinical condition, and which are identified accurately by parents. CONCLUSIONS: The most reliable finding is that colic cries convey diffuse acoustic and audible information that a baby is highly aroused or distressed. Non-acoustic features, including the prolonged, hard to soothe, and unexplained nature of the cries may be specific to colic cries and more important for parents. These properties might reflect temperament-like dispositions.  (+info)

Jejunoileal incarceration and strangulation through a splenic defect in a mare. (3/187)

A 6-year-old, standardbred mare was presented for colic of 12 h duration. Transrectal palpation revealed intestinal distension of unknown cause. The mare was euthanized. At necropsy, segmental jejunoileal incarceration and strangulation through an opening in the spleen was observed. This opening was considered to be a congenital defect.  (+info)

Intestinal adenocarcinoma causing recurrent colic in the horse. (4/187)

An 8-year-old, Thoroughbred-cross mare presented with recurrent colic. Exploratory laparotomy revealed a large mass near the right dorsal colon; white, raised foci on the liver; and enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes. Cytological examination of biopsies revealed neoplastic cells. The diagnosis of adenocarcinoma was confirmed by histological examination.  (+info)

How do we compare with our colleagues? Quality of general practitioner performance in consultations for non-acute abdominal complaints. (5/187)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate what factors influence the quality of general practitioner performance in consultations for non-acute abdominal complaints and to establish the extent to which performance quality differs between general practitioners (GPs). DESIGN: Explorative study in two parts: (i) detection of variables influencing quality scores of consultations; and (ii) comparison of mean quality scores of the consultations, selected by each GP. SETTING: Sixty-two family practices across The Netherlands. SUBJECTS: Eight-hundred and forty consultations concerning non-acute abdominal complaints, first encounters; 62 GPs. METHOD: Multilevel analysis was carried out to detect factors that influence quality. After correction for the effect of significant factors the mean quality scores of individual GPs were calculated and compared. RESULTS: Eighty-eight per cent of the total variance in quality scores was located at the consultation/patient level, and 12% at the GP level. One consultation characteristic had significant influence on quality: quality scores were higher in consultations of longer than average duration (>15 minutes). Several patient characteristics were of significant influence. Consultation quality scores were higher in consultations for patients with upper abdominal or non-specific abdominal complaints. Quality scores were lower in consultations with female patients and with patients aged >40 years. Together these characteristics explained 20% of the variance at the GP level. None of the GP characteristics investigated in this study appeared to have significant influence on the quality of their performance. After correction of the scores for the effect of significant factors the differences in performance quality between GPs remained significant. CONCLUSIONS: Quality of performance is far more influenced by consultation and patient characteristics than by GP characteristics. After correction for influencing factors, the mean quality scores of GPs still differed considerably and significantly. For many GPs the quality scores varied substantially between different consultations; to a large extent this variation remained unexplained. Consultation quality can be improved by booking more time per patient and by giving more medical/technical attention to female and older patients.  (+info)

Tansy ragwort poisoning in a horse in southern Ontario. (6/187)

Bizarre behavior, apparent lameness, and colic were noticed in 1 of 3 horses on a pasture overgrown by weeds during a drought. Liver failure and hepatoencephalopathy were diagnosed, caused by pyrrolizidine alkaloid toxicosis associated with consumption of tansy ragwort. The horse made a full recovery when removed from the pasture.  (+info)

Tyzzer's disease in an 11-day-old foal. (7/187)

An 11-day-old pony became depressed, anorectic, and pyrexic 2 days after the topsoil of its paddock had been turned over. Rapid progression to colic and head pressing occurred, despite intensive therapy for Tyzzer's disease, and the foal died within 7 h of the appearance of central nervous system signs.  (+info)

Fetal growth and infantile colic. (8/187)

AIM: To describe how fetal growth and gestational age affect infantile colic, while considering other potential risk factors. STUDY DESIGN: A population based follow up study of 2035 healthy singleton infants without any disability born to Danish mothers. Information was collected by self administered questionnaires at 16 and 30 weeks of gestation, at delivery, and 8 months post partum. Infantile colic is defined according to Wessel's criteria, but symptoms are restricted to crying for more than three hours a day, for more than three days a week, and for more than three weeks. RESULTS: The cumulated incidence of infantile colic was 10.9%. Low birth weight babies (< 2500 g) had more than twice the risk (odds ratio = 2.7, 95% confidence interval 1.2 to 6.1) of infantile colic when controlled for gestational age, maternal height, and smoking. CONCLUSION: Low birth weight may be associated with infantile colic, and further research will be aimed to focus on fetal growth and infantile colic.  (+info)

Infantile colic is a common painful clinical condition associated with signs of distended intestines and an increase in colon peristalsis. However, clinical documentation of observed gastrointestinal functions in the condition is still lacking. Even though the ailment is common, no clear treatment guidelines exist. While acupuncture with minimal stimulation has been shown to be effective in reducing crying behaviour of infants suffering from colic, the documented effect of acupuncture on gastrointestinal function in children with infantile colic is scarce. This case series study aims to document the symptoms of routinely rated gastrointestinal function and the changes in these symptoms after minimal acupuncture in a larger group of children with infantile colic. This study included 913 infants with normal weights, and lengths at birth. The infants mean age was 5.4 weeks when the observations started, and had colic symptoms since two weeks after birth.

Colic in horses is defined as abdominal pain, but it is a clinical sign rather than a diagnosis. The term colic can encompass all forms of gastrointestinal conditions which cause pain as well as other causes of abdominal pain not involving the gastrointestinal tract. The most common forms of colic are gastrointestinal in nature and are most often related to colonic disturbance. There are a variety of different causes of colic, some of which can prove fatal without surgical intervention. Colic surgery is usually an expensive procedure as it is major abdominal surgery, often with intensive aftercare. Among domesticated horses, colic is the leading cause of premature death. The incidence of colic in the general horse population has been estimated between 4 and 10 percent over the course of their lifetime. Clinical signs of colic generally require treatment by a veterinarian. Colic can be divided broadly into several categories: excessive gas accumulation in the intestine (gas colic) simple ...
If you have Infantile Colic, it is important to keep track of the causes, For information on the different causes of Infantile Colic
Background: Infant colic, or excessive crying in an otherwise healthy infant, is common, although the cause(s) are not known. This study aimed to determine whether parental migraine is associated with infant colic. Methods: This was a cross-sectional online survey study of biological parents of 4-8 week olds in the United States during February and March 2017 and October 2017-April 2018. Parents self-reported information about their and their infants health using validated instruments wherever possible. Parents were recruited using social media advertisements and completed the survey online. Migraine was identified with a validated screener using modified International Classification of Headache Disorders 3rd edition criteria. Parental depression and anxiety were screened with the Patient Health Questionnaire-2 (PHQ-2) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale-2 (GAD-2). Parental seasonal allergies and asthma were assessed by self-report. Infant colic was determined based on parental response to ...

When parents complain of infant colic, it seems likely that aspects of their babies crying behaviour are partly responsible for their disquiet. This study assessed whether distinct acoustic properties of colic cries might be a central source of parents concerns. Infants whose amount of crying met the criteria of Wessel and colleagues11 for colic and whose mothers recorded colic bouts in diaries were selected. The most intense 30 second segments from the selected colic bouts were compared with audibly intense segments of pre-feed cries of infants judged not to have colic. The question addressed by this comparison is whether colic cries contain distinct acoustic information that allows them to be distinguished from cries which, because they cease upon feeding, are usually referred to as hunger cries.. Two acoustic parameters, fundamental frequency (audible pitch) and dysphonation (audible harshness), have been the main focus in previous studies of infant pain, colic, crying, and cry ...
A randomized, controlled clinical trial on colic in Denmark that compared chiropractic adjustments to daily doses of dimethicone has concluded: Spinal manipulation has a positive short-term effect on infantile colic. 1. Infantile colic is a curious and mysterious condition. It is estimated that, on average, 22.5% of all newborns suffer from colic, defined as uncontrollable crying in babies from 0-3 months old, more than three hours a day, more than three days a week for three weeks or more, usually in the afternoon and evening hours. But only 47 percent of infantile colic cases have disappeared by the age of three months, a further 41 percent disappeared before six months of age, and the remaining 12 percent of cases persevered until between the ages of 6 and 12 months.. First described in 1894, colic has no verified cause(s). Countless studies have, however, determined what it is not caused by: air or constrictions in the intestines; gastrointestinal transit time; intestinal hormones; ...
BY LINDSAY BROCK/JUMP MEDIA. One of the most dreaded words in horse care is colic. Fear of colic is often in the back of any horse owners mind, but Palm Beach Equine Clinics emergency colic care offerings can help ease the fear and improve the outcome. Characterized by abdominal pain or problems with the gastrointestinal tract, colic is something that often arises unexpectedly and from many different origins. Spoiled feed, abrupt changes in feed, parasite infestation, sand ingestion, lack of water consumption, and even excess stress or changes in the weather are among the numerous factors generally associated with colic. Whatever the cause of a colic case may be, the most critical tip for successful treatment is the immediate identification of symptoms and involvement of a veterinarian. Unfortunately, colic can be fatal, but early and appropriate treatment significantly improves outcomes and chances of survival.. Common colic signs: ...
To decrease the incidence of colic and save the lives of horses requiring surgery, horses and groups of horses will need to be critically examined and research completed to find the reason for the various intestinal disorders that cause colic. This will require new knowledge about nutrition, pasture management and stabling. In recent years, researchers have determined that high concentrate diets, changes in diet, increased stabling time and other management practices can increase the risk of colic. These factors do not, however, explain all cases of colic. Further research is needed to elucidate management practices and other characteristics that increase the risk for colic. Once identified, clinical studies are needed to determine the effects of altering specific management practices. This will require large-scale studies, possibly involving horses from several countries, to identify management techniques and other factors associated with colic. The costs of this type of research principally ...
Needle acupuncture, originating from China, is used in Scandinavia and in other Western countries as a treatment for infantile colic. The treatment is controversial, as infants and toddlers are unable to consent to treatment. We aimed to evaluate the method and the efficacy of acupuncture treatments for infantile colic.. Methods. We did a pilot study to assess the feasibility of our proposed design of a trial to assess the efficacy of percutaneous needle acupuncture. We carried out a prospective, blinding-validated, randomised controlled multi-centre trial in general practice. We did a systematic review and a blinding test validation based on individual patient data from all randomised controlled trials. We did a qualitative study in Shanghai to explore contemporary practices and clinical recommendations regarding the use of acupuncture for infants.. Results. We improved the standardisation of the intervention procedure and changed the blinding procedure as a result of the pilot study.. We found ...
What are the symptoms of colic?. Colic may cause infants, typically less than four months old, to cry inconsolably. The attacks usually occur in the late afternoon and evening, sometimes lasting for hours. During a colicky period, babies may bring their knees up, clench their fists, grimace, hold their breath, and generally be more active.. Dietary changes that may be helpful for colic. Allergies may be responsible for colic in some infants.1 2 If the child is fed with formula, the problem may be an intolerance to milk proteins from a cows milk-based formula.3 Switching to a soy formula may ease colic in such cases.4 Infants who are sensitive to both milk and soy may be given a hypoallergenic formula containing extensively hydrolyzed proteins. However, some children are sensitive even to these formulas.. A true food protein intolerance in infants may result in persistent distress attributed to irritation of the esophagus caused by reflux (partial spitting up). These infants may respond to an ...
Standardized acupuncture treatment for infant colic is a common treatment in general practice for doctors educated in medical acupuncture.. The investigators plan to study whether the perceived opinion on positive results can be verified in a multi-center clinical trial. The investigators aim to measure the effect of standardized acupuncture treatment, three repeated sessions, on infant colic in a randomized singe blinded prospective multi-center study, starting September 2009. The study will be done in thirteen locations in Norway by specialists in General Practice trained in acupuncture.. The investigators intend to include a total of 130 patients, 65 in the intervention group and 65 in the control group. ...
The term colic can cause fear in many horse owners. For the novice horse owner, colic is often a term that is poorly understood. Colic can be caused by many things but is often a clinical condition that can be controlled and/or prevented with good management strategies. This bulletin is designed to address the common causes and preventative measures of colic that originates exclusively from the gastrointestinal tract (GI) as well as give a brief overview of treatment options. However, it should by no means serve as a replacement for veterinary attention required to treat an ongoing case of colic.. ...
In the study of Dietary Management of Infantile Colic: A Systematic Review by Iacovou M, Ralston RA, Muir J, Walker KZ, Truby H., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that in six databases were searched from 1960, and 24 studies selected for inclusion. In breastfed infants, evidence suggests that a hypoallergenic maternal diet may be beneficial for reducing symptoms of colic. In formula-fed infants, colic may improve after changing from a standard cows milk formula to either a hydrolysed protein formula or a soy-based formula. Fibre-supplemented formulae had no effect ...
In this study we followed the temporal development of the intestinal microbiota from birth onward in infants with and without colic by using the HITChip, a phylogenetic microarray that allows a highly reproducible and comprehensive analysis of the known intestinal microbiota.18 Colic was determined at 6 weeks of age with a cry diary. The infants with colic were characterized by a microbiota that developed slower than that of the control infants and that also showed a reduced temporal stability. Infants with colic also showed a significantly reduced microbiota diversity at 14 and 28 days of life. In addition, already in the first 2 weeks of life, specific significant differences between both groups were found; proteobacteria were increased in infants with colic, with a more than doubled relative abundance, whereas bifidobacteria and lactobacilli were increased in control infants. Moreover, samples from infants with colic were found to contain fewer bacteria related to butyrate-producing ...
Crying is one of the things babies do best - that is, when theyre not sleeping, eating or smiling. Crying is a babys way of communicating, usually to let you know that they are hungry, tired, in need of a new nappy, uncomfortable or bored, or just because they want a cuddle. But some babies cry louder and longer than others for no apparent reason.. What is colic?. Up to 30% of babies suffer from colic, a pattern of excessive crying with no known cause. Colic in babies tends to follow this pattern: crying for more than 3 hours per day (usually in the evening), for more than 3 days per week, for at least 3 weeks.. If your baby has colic, they may pull their legs up to their belly, arch their back, stiffen their arms and legs, pass wind and have a tense, bloated tummy. These behaviours plus inconsolable crying typically start a few weeks after birth and thankfully stop in most babies of their own accord at 4 to 6 months of age.. Colic and cows milk allergy.

Colic. Among these potential complications, mild colic is perhaps the most common, but its symptoms shouldnt be ignored.. Colic usually occurs during the final stage of parturition, as your mares uterine contractions continue in an effort to expel the placenta and any remaining fluids.. Watch your mare carefully in the hours following foaling. If colic signs persist after two hours, call your veterinarian for support.. Vaginal or Uterine Tears. At times, colic may be suspected when it is, in fact, vaginal or uterine tears that are causing your mare pain and discomfort.. Any injury of the reproductive tract can compromise the reproductive health of your mare. For example, septic peritonitis, an infection caused by uterine fluid leaking into the abdominal cavity.. Vaginal and uterine tears will require medical management and possibly surgery to repair. A postpartum examination will enable your veterinarian to assess the extent of any injuries.

How To Deal With Baby Colic Without Losing Your Mind - Caring for an infant can be a challenging time for new and seasoned parents alike -- especially so for parents of colicky babies. Although colic usually passes after the first three to four months of a babys life, coping with the condition can feel like an eternity. Colic is a fairly common condition; however it is a bit of a mystery to the medical community. Its cause is unknown and the term generally applies to healthy infants who cry more than three hours per day, three days a week for a period of more than three weeks. Attempting to soothe a crying baby for hours on end can be stressful. Heres how to deal with baby colic without losing your mind: - January 29, 2016 at 01:44PM - more informtion about How To Deal With Baby Colic Without Losing Your Mind ...
Colic affects 20% of babies and is defined by its symptoms rather than a particular cause. A baby is described as having colic if they cry over 3 hours per day at least 3 days a week. Colic is usually found in babies age 2 weeks to 4 months. Most colicky babies cry more in the late evening or at night. Usually by the 4th month the infant stops crying, giving parents some much needed relief.. The actual cause of colic is unknown, but factors which may contribute to colic are intestinal gas pains, overfeeding, or nervous tension. Digestive dysfunction is supported by the fact that colicky babies typically pull their legs up as if experiencing abdominal cramps or pain. However, some experts suggest that abdominal pain is the result of crying rather than the cause as crying may result in swallowing air, with resultant stomach distention.. Another theory is that colicky babies are intolerant of certain types of food such as dairy. This may be the case if a baby cries more after feedings. Some ...
There are two colic flexures, or curvatures in the transverse colon. The one on the right, the right colic flexure is known as the hepatic flexure. The one on the left, the left colic flexure is known as the splenic flexure. The right colic flexure or hepatic flexure (as it is next to the liver) is the sharp bend between the ascending colon and the transverse colon. The hepatic flexure lies in the right upper quadrant of the human abdomen. It receives blood supply from the superior mesenteric artery. The left colic flexure or splenic flexure (as it is close to the spleen) is the sharp bend between the transverse colon and the descending colon. The splenic flexure is a watershed region as it receives dual blood supply from the terminal branches of the superior mesenteric artery and the inferior mesenteric artery, thus making it prone to ischemic damage in cases of low blood pressure because it does not have its own primary source of blood. In the context of ischemia, the splenic flexure is ...
There have been some suggestion that colic babies tend to develop educational problems in later life though there is no direct evidence for this. However an article in the New Yorker may add some weight to this. Professor Barry Lester has been studying colic for most of his professional career suggest that some colicky babies are hypersensitive to normal stimuli and over-react to normal stimulus. He has also studied 3 - 8 year-olds who had colic as a child and found the 75% suffered from behavioral problems, including a limited attention span, tantrums, and irritation after being touched or coming in contact with particular fabrics or tags in their clothing. Lester speculates that Colic threatens to cause problems in the childs ability to form relationships, because the child doesnt learn behavioral regulation and develops problems with impulse control,.

StandleeForage.com - Full Article September 24, 2020 Fall is approaching and with it, cooler weather and a shift in pasture availability and moisture content. When temperatures start to decrease, some horses have a tendency to drink less; coupled with eating less moisture dense pasture and more dry hay, this transition can sometimes bring on impaction colic. Diagnosed early, impaction colic usually can be treated and resolved without surgery. Causes: Impaction colic is a drying out of intestinal contents causing a blockage in the horses gut. The large intestine twists and turns and has several changes of direction and diameter. These corners can be position for impactions, where a firm mass of feed or foreign material blocks the intestine. Impactions can be induced by coarse feed stuff, dehydration or accumulation of foreign material, like sand. Other management changes such as feed changes or decreases in exercise and water intake and long-term use of NSAIDs can also increase the risk for ...
In our cohort, L. reuteri improved colicky symptoms in breastfed infants within 1 week of treatment, compared with simethicone, which suggests that probiotics may have a role in the treatment of infantile colic.
BREAKING THE PAIN CYCLE. Many horses showing signs of colic resolve quickly on their own or in response to a pain-killer like Banamine®. It helps to use a human illustration: When you double over because your belly hurts, most of the time its just because you have some gas pain and not because you have appendicitis, but an observer that sees you in pain might not know that. The majority of people who experience a bout of intestinal pain will get over it by just suffering through it or with some simple medication. So, too, do many horses.. Of 100 horses that we notice showing signs of colic, 60-70 will recover if we simply give the horse a little time, or a shot of Banamine® (flunixin meglumine - a potent anti-inflammatory and pain reliever). But it is critical for us to understand what we are doing when we give Banamine®. We are taking away pain. If the condition causing the colic pain happens to be minor, then it will likely resolve on its own. If the condition is more severe, we may make ...

This article comes from personal experience of treating gas colic with our horses over the last 40 years, so please dont see this as veterinarian advice.. Furthermore, we are discussing gas colic and not a colic caused by a blockage which will need a vet straight away.. Colic in horses is just one of the many realities of having a horse, of course some horses are suffering less than others but keeping your horses diet simple and hay clean of mold and toxins as well as plenty of excises are some of the methods of reducing the problem..

Infant colic is a functional gastrointestinal disorders which affects up to the 30% of the infant population; it is primarily characterised by excessive inconsolable crying starting without any apparent cause and lasting for several hours per day.. Current non pharmacological interventions (e.g. message, restriction in maternal diet in breast-feeding infants) and pharmacological treatments (simethicone, antimuscarinic drugs) are largely unsatisfactory.. In animal models, Nepadutant reverse the exaggerated intestinal motility and sensitivity, induced by different stimuli, without producing inhibitory effects on these functions at baseline, suggesting that Nepadutant could have a therapeutic effect with no interference on physiological gastrointestinal transit.. This phase IIa study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of Nepadutant paediatric oral solution given once daily at two doses in comparison to placebo.. The experimental clinical phase encompasses the following periods:. ...
When your veterinarian arrives to examine a colic, she/he will try to determine the severity and the general type of colic. It is very unusual to be able to diagnose the exact cause of colic, but she may be able to determine if it is more likely to be an impaction or gas colic or if it may involve damaged bowel or toxemia. A routine physical examination (usually done by car headlights or in the barn because it is invariably at night) will help determine the horses cardiovascular status and identify signs shock or toxemia. If the horse is very uncomfortable, the veterinarian may give a short acting analgesic/tranquilizer to aid in performing the examination. Depending upon the situation, the veterinarian may then pass a nasogastric tube (from the nostril to the stomach), perform a rectal examination and/or evaluate the abdominal fluid by doing a belly tap. The nasogastric tube is passed to make sure there is no fluid build-up in the stomach. If there is fluid, this can be a life-saving measure ...
Background: Baby colic is one of the most common digestive problems in infants. Due to its several and unknown causes, colic treatment depends on the parents individual and social education and support. Aim: This study aimed to determine the effect of mothers educational supportive care program on the pain intensity and crying caused by colic in infants aged 1-5 months.

Because infants cry more in their first 3 months than at any other time in their lives, it is often difficult to tell the difference between colic and expected crying behavior. Both types of crying gradually increase, peaking at about 6 to 8 weeks of age. Most crying episodes occur in the late afternoon and evening hours, although the timing may vary. The length and intensity of crying episodes also may change from one day to the next. The difference between colic and normal crying behavior is related to the frequency, duration, and intensity of crying. Babies with colic typically cry for more than 3 hours a day more than 3 days a week for at least 3 weeks in a row. A colicky baby cries very loudly, sometimes piercingly, and often continuously. During a colic episode, babies may clench their fists and stiffen their stomach and legs. Some babies arch their backs, and others pull up their legs to their stomachs.. Most babies with typical crying behavior are soothed and will cry less when they are ...

Despite using prospective methods, an objective case defnition, a population-based relatively large sample and multivariate techniques, our results failed to document any relationship between the source of early infant nutrition and colics development. Unlike other studies, potential etiologic agents including the source of infant nutrition and levels of maternal distress were assessed before the development of colic, allowing for the exploration of temporal relationships. Additionally, the study provides evidence that most cases of infant colicremit by 4 months with little lasting impact on the levels of maternal anxiety or depression Admittedly, because the participants in our study were, on average, well educated, our fndings may not generalize to populations that di﫿er in their socioeconomic background and/or access to health care. Nevertheless, the internal validity of our study is high because of the inclusive nature of the study population, the representative sample, and the high ...
