A systematic arrangement of laparoscopic total abdominal hysterectomy: a new technique. (1/12)

This sequential, prospective, observational clinical trial evaluated a systematic arrangement of laparoscopic total abdominal hysterectomy and prophylactic, retroperitoneal posterior culdoplasty with vaginal vault suspension surgical techniques by suturing method. The uterus was extirpated laparoscopically in 25 consecutive patients using an extra- and intra-corporeal two-turn flat square knot method. Upon completion of uterine excision, a new prophylactic laparoscopic technique of retroperitoneal posterior culdoplasty and vaginal vault suspension were initiated to prevent pelvic relaxation. Retroperitoneal culdoplasty was performed using the anterior rectal fascia, the posterior uterovaginal fascia, and the deep layer retroperitoneal of the uterosacral ligaments. Vaginal vault suspension was performed using posteriorly the deep layer of the uterosacral ligaments; from a lateroposterior aspect, the vaginal vault was suspended to the cardinal ligaments bilaterally, and anteriorly, the vesicouterine fascia provided support for the vaginal apex. A systematic arrangement of surgical steps was evaluated. All predetermined samples of laparoscopic total abdominal hysterectomy with posterior retroperitoneal culdoplasty and vaginal vault suspension were accomplished in a prearranged systematic order. Neither technical failure nor conversion to laparotomy or transvaginal approach was encountered. This technique expedites uterine extirpation and prophylactic pelvic reconstruction with a low complication rate, can be executed with no transvaginal approach, and eliminates the morbidity and mortality associated with laparotomy itself.  (+info)

Culdolaparoscopy: a preliminary report. (2/12)

OBJECTIVE: To introduce a surgical technique that combines culdoscopy with laparoscopy and microlaparoscopy. METHODS: This was a feasibility study conducted at The Mount Sinai Hospital of Queens. The technique is used when a larger port is required during laparoscopy or microlaparoscopy procedures. The additional port is placed in the vagina and, under laparoscopic surveillance, into the posterior cul-de-sac. RESULTS: This operation has been performed successfully in 5 oophorectomies, 4 myomectomies, 3 salpingoophorectomies, and 1 salpingectomy. CONCLUSION: This technique reduces the need for abdominal ports in excess of 5 mm. These ports can have a visual or operative function depending on the nature or stage of the procedure. The vaginal port can serve a visual function similar to that of culdoscopy or may be used for the introduction of operative instruments and the extraction of specimens. A principal benefit of using the larger vaginal port is derived from the capability of assisting laparoscopy and allowing the surgeon to use fewer and smaller abdominal trocars.  (+info)

Investigation of the infertile couple: a one-stop outpatient endoscopy-based approach. (3/12)

Transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy (THL) is a new culdoscopic technique for exploration of the pelvic cavity that takes advantage of micro-endoscopic technology and uses aquaflotation for inspection of the tubo-ovarian structures. In infertility patients, THL is systematically combined with mini-hysteroscopy, chromopertubation, fimbrioscopy and, when indicated, salpingoscopy. Mini-hysteroscopy in combination with the chromopertubation test allows accurate assessment of the uterine cavity and tubal patency. The transvaginal access combined with the aquaflotation during THL facilitates detailed inspection of the tubo-ovarian structures and detection of subtle pelvic disease. This combined transvaginal endoscopic approach allows complete evaluation of the reproductive tract. THL is better tolerated than hysterosalpingography, less invasive than standard laparoscopy, and can be used safely as a first line investigation of the female partner in a one-stop infertility clinic.  (+info)

Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy, hysterectomy, and burch colposuspension: feasibility and short-term complications of 77 procedures. (4/12)

OBJECTIVE: To report our first cases of laparoscopic sacropexy and assess the feasibility and short-term complications. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 77 laparoscopic sacral colpopexies performed from June 1996 to May 1998. Suspension was reinforced with 2 strips of synthetic mesh. Five patients had previously undergone hysterectomy, and 4 others had experienced failure of surgery for prolapse of the uterus. RESULTS: Laparoscopy was performed in 83 women with symptomatic prolapse of the uterus. Six cases required conversion to laparotomy because of technical difficulties. All of the remaining 77 patients underwent laparoscopic sacropexy that included anterior and posterior mesh reinforcement. Subtotal laparoscopic hysterectomy was performed in 60 cases, laparoscopic Burch colposuspension in 74, and levator myorrhaphy via a vaginal approach in 55. Operative time decreased from 292 to 180 minutes as experience was gained. The main operative complications were 1 rectal and 2 bladder injuries. Three patients required reoperations for hematoma or hemorrhage. One patient complained of chronic inflammation of the cervix, and another experienced rejection of the posterior mesh 6 months after the operation. Mean follow-up was 343 days. Three other patients required reoperation, 1 for a third-degree cystocele and 2 for recurrent stress incontinence. CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is feasible. Operative time and postoperative complications are related to the surgeon's experience but remain comparable to those noted in laparotomy. Long-term assessment is required to confirm the results of this procedure.  (+info)

Culdolaparoscopic cholecystectomy during vaginal hysterectomy. (5/12)

BACKGROUND: Exploration of the abdominal cavity is routinely performed during abdominal and laparoscopic hysterectomies. The visualization of the abdomen during vaginal hysterectomy, however, is not usually done. During a vaginal hysterectomy, after the uterus is removed, an opening is present in the cul-de-sac, which offers a unique opportunity for the performance of not only exploratory but also concomitant surgeries, such as a cholecystectomy. METHOD: Culdolaparascopy is a culdoscopy assisted laparoscopic technique that utilizes a 12-mm trocar in the vagina as a multifunctional port in conjunction with laparoscopy and minilaparoscopy. A cholecystectomy was performed utilizing the vaginal trocar as an insufflation, visual, and extracting port during a vaginal hysterectomy. CONCLUSION: Culdolaparoscopy, when performed during vaginal hysterectomy, can be used for exploration and operation in the abdominal cavity. This case report illustrates the feasibility of a cholecystectomy performed using this surgical concept.  (+info)

Sonographic demonstration of air in the myometrium. A complication of culdocentesis. (6/12)

Six cases are presented in which air was seen in the myometrium in the distribution of the arcuate vessels during sonography performed after culdocentesis to exclude ectopic pregnancy. Three of these patients had viable intrauterine pregnancies; the others had an incomplete abortion, a complete abortion, and a right ectopic pregnancy. This relatively rare complication of culdocentesis should be kept in mind, especially when scanning patients with suspected inflammatory process of the uterus, so as not to confuse air in the arcuate vessels with a uterine abscess.  (+info)

Minilaparoscopy-assisted natural orifice surgery. (7/12)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: New technology has allowed us to perform major abdominal and pelvic surgeries with increasingly smaller instruments. The ultimate goal is surgery with no visible scars. Until current technical limitations are overcome, minilaparoscopy-assisted natural orifice surgery (MANOS) provides a solution. The aim of this study was to examine our clinical and experimental experience with MANOS. METHOD: Minilaparoscopic abdominal instruments were used together with a large vaginal port, which was used for insufflation, visual purposes, introduction of operative instruments, and specimen extraction. Minilaparoscopy-assisted intraperitoneal transgastric appendectomy was done in simulators (Lap trainer with SimuVision, Simulab Corp., Seattle, WA). RESULTS: Since 1998, we have used this technique in 100 cases including ovarian cystectomies, oophorectomies, salpingo-oophorectomies, myomectomies, appendectomies, and cholecystectomies. Some oophorectomies were performed after vaginal hysterectomy in cases where vaginal extraction was not possible. In this case series, we had only one complication, a case of postoperative fever after an ovarian cystectomy, which was diagnosed as drug-related fever. Our limited simulator experience showed that MANOS is a feasible technique for performing transgastric appendectomies. CONCLUSION: It may take several years for natural orifice surgery to become standard care. Meanwhile, MANOS could encourage and expedite this process.  (+info)

Ultrasound-guided culdotomy for vaginal ovarian cystectomy using a renal balloon dilator catheter. (8/12)

 (+info)

Culdoscopy is an endoscopic procedure performed to examine the rectouterine pouch and pelvic viscera by the introduction of a culdoscope through the posterior vaginal wall. The word culdoscopy (and culdoscope) is derived from the term cul-de-sac, which means literally in French bottom of a sac, and refers to the rectouterine pouch (or called the pouch of Douglas). The culdoscope is a non-flexible endoscope, basically a modified laparoscope. A trocar is first inserted through the vagina into the posterior cul-de-sac, the space behind the cervix, allowing then the entry of the culdoscope. Due to the position of the patient intestines fall away from the pelvic organs which can then be inspected. Conditions diagnosable by culdoscopy include tubal adhesions (causing sterility), ectopic pregnancy, and salpingitis. Culdoscopy allows the performance of minor procedures such as tubal sterilization. Culdoscopy is performed with the patient in a knee chest position under local or general anesthesia. ...

Let us start with the question, if instruments make good surgeon? Instruments and apparatuses for laparoscopic hysterectomies have been developed over the last 40 years for interventions with multiple ports as well as for single-port surgery. A good surgeon bases his surgical plan on his knowledge of anatomy, recognizing the presented disease, his intuitiveness, and on optimal instruments and coagulation systems. With this issue, we are dealing in three parts: 1. History 2. General systems for adhesion prevention, mesh, stitching and knotting techniques, staples, glue, drains, rinsing solutions, and suction 3. Instruments and apparatuses for laparoscopic hysterectomies Instrument trolleys gather all equipment used in gynecological and general laparoscopic surgery.

My thoughts: I must have the worst memory in the history of people under 60 who have not suffered some traumatic memory loss. I read the first book in Carrie Ryans series, The Forest of Hands and Teeth just two years ago and I hardly remember a thing about it. The only thing I really remember is that I wasnt very crazy about the first book and most people thought it was really good. In her second novel, The Dead-Tossed Waves, the story of the undead continues as we learn that Mary has grown up and now has a teenage daughter who is the MC of this book. Its rare for me to enjoy the sequel far better than the first book but this was an example of that. Right from the beginning there is action as Gabry and her friends jump the barrier that separates their relatively safe town and the unknown area where the unconsecrated roam. Her friends are attacked and those who arent infected end up imprisoned for crossing the barrier. So much action and conflict, I was hooked ...
Ideally, science drives public policy and education; as science changes, so should the science-based laws and lore. But I had learned, while growing up in Wisconsin and watching my father in his successful battle to ban the systemic poison DDT, that when ordinary people understand the science, the lore changes, then the laws change. So I spent three years writing my first book on the oil spill, Sound Truth and Corporate Myths, to explain how scientists came to discover that oil is more toxic than thought in the 1970s and what laws need to be changed to better protect people, wildlife, and our environment. But no laws changed.. Disappointed, but determined, I began to focus more on the lore to understand how community experience and teachings change as the collective intelligence adjusts to new information. I learned from experience and writing my second book on the oil spill, Not One Drop, that the Cordova community began to recover from the social, economic and emotional spill trauma when ...
Jeff Bezos sold his first book on Amazon.com way back in 1995. (It was a copy of Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought -- not exactly a best seller.)

Its not just Amazon thats benefited from online ordering.
Donald L Barlett/James B Steele: The Betrayal of the American Dream (2012, PublicAffairs): Journalists, wrote their first book on this subject back in 1992 (America: What Went Wrong?), then followed it up in 1996 (America: Who Stole the Dream?), and nothings happened since then to take their subject away. They tend to lead with an onslaught of facts, so expect that. I used to be wary of Middle Class/American Dream arguments, partly because the implicit narrative behind them is one of aspiring to be ever richer. However, the new story line is one of struggling to avoid poverty, nipping at your heels, meaner than ever..

A testing method that makes a certain characteristic of chromosomes easier to see. A karyotype is the systematic arrangement, using images, of the 46 human chromosomes of a cell. Karyotypes are examined for deviations from the expected arrangement, number, size, shape or other characteristics of the chromosomes. Each chromosome pair has a characteristic banding pattern. To make the banding pattern easier to see, a dye called Giemsa may be used as a stain. This process is also referred to as G-banding. G-banding karyotyping and other cytogenetic tests provide doctors with information that contributes to determining the best treatment approach for an individual patient. The test takes longer than the FISH test, but has the advantage of being able to detect any changes that are visible because it does not rely on specific probes. Usually, both tests are done on samples from the marrow, especially at the time of diagnosis.. ...

Description: Ontologies provide a common platform of controlled vocabulary for researchers who need to share information across a particular domain, inclusive of machine-interpretable definitions of basic concepts in the domain and relations among them. The need for ontologies that provide a systematic arrangement of available data and allow cross talk across various related domains is gaining momentum. In this backdrop, we have developed a comprehensive ontology on primary and established cell lines-both normal and pathologic. It covers around 400 cell lines. This ontology has been built to include the major domains in the field of biology like anatomy, bio-molecules, chemicals and drugs, pathological conditions and genetic variations around the cell lines. An extensive network of relations has been built across these concepts to enable different combination of queries. The ontology covers all cell lines from major sources like ATCC, DSMZ, ECACC, ICLC etc. and is built in OWL format. ...
For those of us who spend lots of time doing it, programming is an intense activity. And an intensely human activity. Despite this being experienced since the days of Babbage and Lovelace, little attention has been devoted to this aspect, but an important exception is the annual Psychology of Programming Workshop, held this year in Brighton, UK. I have followed this workshop from a distance for many years, and this year I was invited to speak: I enjoyed it very much and I hope to attend again. From a perspective of HCI, it always occurs to me that programming systems quickly push beyond the capacity of the models we normally adopt: programming requires immense investment, and the invisible and dynamic complexity remains a formidable challenge for human capabilities. I was especially pleased to have time to chat with Thomas Green, who has influenced my work since I came across his book Human Interaction with Computers (shown above) in a Cambridge bookshop in 1979. It was one of the first books on ...

Geoffrey Wards first book on FDR Before the Trumpet (p. 145) describes an incident where the nine-year old Franklin sustained a deep cut on his forehead from a falling curtain rod while on a ship with his father. The point was that stoic and proud FDR insisted that his father not be told, rather asking for a cap to cover the wound. This incident may be the source of that scar. It is also clear from a few photos that another well known skin lesion, the benign waxy mole on his right cheek was, at one time, a considerable cosmetic eyesore. This may also have functioned in sensitizing him to the appearance of his face. It is also apparant that, sometime in the late teens or early 1920s some minor cosmetic reduction was performed.

Colposcopy is a gynecological procedure that illuminates and magnifies the vulva, vaginal walls, and uterine cervix in order to detect and examine abnormalities of these structures. The cervix is the base of the womb (uterus) and leads out to the birth canal (vagina). During colposcopy, special tests [acetic acid wash, use of color filters, and sampling (biopsy) of tissues] can be done. Colposcopy is not to be confused with culdoscopy, which is the insertion of an instrument through the wall of the vagina in order to view the pelvic area behind the vagina.. Finally, colposcopy allows tissue sampling (biopsy) that is targeted to the abnormal areas. In fact, the biopsy of abnormal areas is a critical part of colposcopy because treatment will depend on how severe the abnormality is on the biopsy sample. After colposcopy and biopsies, a chemical is applied to the biopsy area to prevent bleeding (spotting). As part of the biopsy procedure, endocervical curettage (sampling of the tissues within the ...

This year we celebrate the two hundredth anniversary of the first book to be printed and published in Australia. Though our first book was snappily entitled New South Wales General Standing Orders Selected from the General Orders Issued by Former Governors, it is unlikely that very many people were madly excited even at the time, and today the anniversary of its first appearance is scarcely front page news, although the book contains at least one permanently newsworthy item of information, which I will get to later on. For now we need merely note that an all-Australian book is no longer a novelty. Today we are quite accustomed to buying books that were written, printed and published in Australia. If we wished to, we could build a personal library of Australian books and if we wanted to own them all we would need a house as big as all of Kerry Packers houses put together. In my own personal library in London I started an Australian section about twenty years ago. Every time I make a visit home ...

About the TIF Procedure Benefits of TIF: Incisionless approach means no scars No internal cutting or dissection of the natural anatomy-faster recovery Fewer adverse events and complications than conventional antireflux surgery Can be revised if required Does not limit future treatment options [1] The Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) is a surgical procedure performed through the mouth and without incisions; it employs the EsophyX device to create an esophagogastric fundoplication that is up to 270° and 3cm in length. A unique form of Natural Orifice Surgery (NOS), TIF represents the next step in the field of minimally invasive surgery and the treatment of GERD. Transoral - TIF is performed from within the GI tract with the EsophyX device inserted through the patients mouth Incisionless - There are no incisions resulting in reduced discomfort, faster recovery, and higher patient satisfaction Fundoplication - EsophyX enables manipulation and plication of the fundus (part of the

Matthäus Schwarz is the only Renaissance accountant you will find hanging in two major European collections - as a young man in the Louvre in Paris and, in mid-life, in the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection in Madrid. He was born in the beautiful South German Imperial city of Augsburg in 1497, as son of a wine-merchant who fathered a total of 37 children, twenty of whom survived. Thirteen of those surviving children were boys; this was one of the most numerous Augsburg families at the time. In 1520, aged 23, Schwarz began a unique project, which I call The First Book of Fashion. Up to the age of 63, in 1560, he commissioned 137 water-colour images of himself dressed retrospectively from when he was a baby when he considered himself an old man. He recorded the high points of his life, notably attending the Imperial Diet, as well as the low points, as when he suffered a stroke. Together with Maria Hayward and in cooperation with the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Brunswick I have for the past five ...

by Chris, Whittaker DP_WHITTAKERCHRISTOPHER. INTRODUCTION. Urban planners and economists often debate the merits of cul-de-sacs, or circular, dead end streets that serve adjacent dwellings. Proponents claim that cul-de-sacs reduce urban congestion, improve community relations and reduce crime. However, economists occasionally challenge such claims, asserting that cul-de-sacs do not provide additional safety benefits or that such benefits are negligible. This research explores the relationship between crime and the existence of cul-de-sacs in the city of Durham, North Carolina. By utilizing Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and publically available crime data, I compare the spatial differences in crime rates between communities built on cul-de-sacs and two-way streets. Though crime in cul-de-sacs appears to be markedly lower than crime on nearby two-way streets, further economic analysis is necessary to separate the spatial effects of cul-de-sacs from other socioeconomic factors.. CURRENT ...

Process, perfectionism, and paralysis are three things Ive been thinking about a lot this week both because there is a big discussion about them on a teenlit yahoo group I am a part of and because Im trying to kickstart new project(s).. As I think Ive mentioned before, I thought this whole thing would get easier after Id written and then sold one book, but no. I was finishing up work on my second book when the first book sold. Since it took a year for the first book to sell, I probably should have been closer to done, but the second book was a real struggle as I know Ive mentioned and my agent was focused on selling my first book anyway (without her, I would have given up on writing. I swear, she was so determined to see IWBYJR get published, almost more so than me. Shes the dream agent.), so I took my sweet time.. Then after IWBYJR sold, the perfectionism thing kicked in. It took me three months to get the manuscript in shape for my agent and by that time it was mid-summer and I was ...
Im really excited to read the second books in the Vampire Academy series and Darkest Powers series. I really enjoyed both of the first books. :D Also from the library, I got the first book in the Final Prophecy series, which I checked out because I won the fourth book in that series from GoodReads. Another book I won and received this week was Panthans Crucible. I actually finished reading it, and it was very good. Its the first book in a new series, so I cant wait for the next one! I would recommend it to YA-paranormal fans who are looking for something other than vampires and werewolves. Its about the Panthans, creatures created by God. They look human, and although it wasnt exactly stated, Im assuming they are kind of like panthers. I just thought it was unique and really interesting, and hey, looks like there might be some romance. ;) ...
Note: There are big spoilers for the first book in this series, but none for this one. Before I started this book, I re-read the first book of the trilogy, Pure (see my review, here.) As much as I loved the first book, I thought it was even better the second time through! As I…
Bryan Donahue is a survivor, motivational speaker and author. His first book On Borrowed Time was recently published and written with Pulitzer Prize nominated author M. Rutledge McCall.. When Bryan was a 22 year old U.S. Marine in perfect health, he was dealt a blow most would not recover from. His shocking diagnosis of a rare chronic liver disease (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis) that has no cure made him reevaluate everything he held sacred. Bryans mental shift came when he was told he had months to live and looked at material and situational pieces of his life that he thought were important and fortunately realized that the important pieces of the puzzle were mostly the little things and the people around him.. His book On Borrowed Time, How I built a Life While Beating Death and his motivational speaking engagements chronicle the transformation Bryan went through from the disease physically ravaging his body to the unbreakable mental state he needed to maintain in order to survive. He ...
The gb-glucuronidase (GUS) gene is extremely useful as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes and can be used in organisms where other reporter genes are useless. Thus, the GUS gene is the reporter gene of choice for transgenic plant research. Not only can this assay be used to detect whether a gene is being expressed, but it can be used to determine the location of the gene product within cells. Low cost is another advantage of this assay. GUS Protocols provides instructions and essential background information that will enable researchers to effectively use the GUS gene as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes.First book on the GUS reporter systemUp-to-date reference lists following each of the fourteen chaptersComb-bound for convenient bench-top useWritten by leading authorities including R.A. Jefferson, inventor of the GUS assayIllustrated with colorGUS detection by fluorometric, spectrophotometric, and histochemical methodsFast, automated assays
Honours fulfil one of the most fundamental desires of human beings, to be recognized and held in esteem by others. There are thousands of awards in all areas of society: the state (orders), arts and media, sports, religion, the voluntary sector, academia, and business. The book presents empirical evidence using modern statistical techniques to argue that awards affect the motivation of recipients. They can significantly raise performance in different contexts (e.g. in academia, the voluntary and for-profit sectors)-even if they are purely symbolic. Overall, honours are shown to be a useful intervention, above and beyond monetary incentives in the form of pay-for-performance or bonuses. The book makes the case for reorienting our focus-away from the monetary or material dimensions of work and private life, and towards the symbolic dimensions to celebrate and shine a light on merit and achievement. This is the first book on the Economics of Awards; it integrates insights from economics, psychology,
This is the first book on the acquisition of Spanish that provides a state-of-the-art comprehensive overview of Spanish morphosyntactic development in monolingual and bilingual situations. Its content is organized around key grammatical themes that form the empirical base of research in generative grammar: nominal and verbal inflectional morphology, subject and object pronouns, complex structures involving movement (topicalizations, questions, relative clauses), and aspects of verb meaning that have consequences for syntax. The book argues that Universal Grammar constrains all instances of language acquisition and that there is a fundamental continuity between monolingual, bilingual, child and adult early grammatical systems. While stressing their similarities with respect to linguistic representations and processes, the book also considers important differences between these three acquisition situations with respect to the outcome of acquisition. It is also shown that many linguistic properties ...
In my first book on the economic crisis (A Failure of Capitalism: The Crisis of 08 and the Descent into Depression), which was completed in February 2009, I argued that the crisis should be called a depression rather than a recession, in part because of the enormous debts that the government was assuming in an effort to overcome the crisis. In my second book (The Crisis of Capitalist Democracy), completed in January of this year, I further emphasized the potential long-term adverse consequences of the crisis, and argued that a depression or recession should not be considered over until GDP...
AA is an omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid found in meat. It has a chain length of 20 carbon atoms, the same number as EPA; but AA has only four double bonds, while EPA has five. The important difference, though, is that EPA has its first double bond in the omega-3 position and AA has its first double bond in the omega-6 position (see Figure 4).. We then hypothesized that the shift in Eskimo blood from AA to EPA and/or its 22 carbon omega-3 cousin, DHA could tune their blood clotting into a less active state by changing the prostaglandin formation to components generated from EPA and/or DHA, thereby diminishing the risk for clots in their arteries and consequently their risk of heart attacks.. Passwater: This is where I found your research to be extremely exciting. Up until this point, I found your research very enlightening, but with this information, I found it to be compelling. So, I set about writing the first book on omega-3s nearly 30 years ago in 1981 based on your research. The book ...

My journey into alternative healing started for personal reasons-as is often the case.. I was always intrigued by the Shiatsu therapy. How was it possible that pressing particular points in a specific order could produce such a strong effect on the body? How can it change our mood, or relieve pain?. I bought my first book on shiatsu over 20 years ago and shortly after, while in labor with my son, I began pressing the pain relief points I had read about. It helped tremendously through the natural birth. Then, whenever my son was sick, I would practice it on him and it always worked.. After graduating school in the Ukraine I moved to Philadelphia and found that the International School of Shiatsu was right here.. That was the day my life changed and after graduating as a Shiatsu practitioner, my job as a programmer soon seemed meaningless. I had found my true calling.. Since 2000 I have added more natural therapies to my practice, including Vipassana and Osho Active Meditations.. The positive ...
In contrast to Anna Freud, who located the origins of defenses in the sexual conflicts of a child, Vaillant sees adaptations as arising organically from the pain of experience and playing out through the whole lifespan. Take his comparison of two Grant Study men, whom he named David Goodhart and Carlton Tarrytown in his first book on the study, Adaptation to Life, published in 1977. Both men grew up fearful and lonely. Goodhart was raised in a blue-collar family, had a bigoted, alcoholic father, and a mother he described as very nervous, irritable, anxious, and a worrier. Tarrytown was richer, and was raised in a wealthy suburb, but he also had an alcoholic father, and his mother was so depressed that he feared she would commit suicide. Goodhart went on to become a national leader on civil-rights issues-a master, Vaillant argued, of the mature defenses of sublimation and altruism. By his late 40s, staff researchers using independent ratings put Goodhart in the top fifth of the Grant ...
In an attempt to focus and clarify what was a growing interest in this field, in 1994 educator and businessman Laurence O. McKinney published the first book on the subject, titled Neurotheology: Virtual Religion in the 21st Century, written for a popular audience but also promoted in the theological journal Zygon.[9] According to McKinney, neurotheology sources the basis of religious inquiry in relatively recent developmental neurophysiology. According to McKinneys theory, pre-frontal development, in humans, creates an illusion of chronological time as a fundamental part of normal adult cognition past the age of three. The inability of the adult brain to retrieve earlier images experienced by an infantile brain creates questions such as where did I come from and where does it all go, which McKinney suggests led to the creation of various religious explanations. The experience of death as a peaceful regression into timelessness as the brain dies won praise from readers as varied as author ...

In this volume, noted author and teacher Burne Hogarth illustrates every effect of light and shade with brilliant drawings in pencil, charcoal, carbon, pen and ink, and brush and ink, encouraging the reader to experiment with diverse drawing media. Following introductory chapters, the author devotes a separate chapter to each of the five basic categories of light and shade: single-source light, double-source light, flat diffused light, moonlight, and sculptural light. Hogarth also includes discussions regarding spatial light, transparent light, fragmentation light, radiant light, and artist-invented expressive light. The first book on this fundamental aspect of art technique, this is an essential volume for everyone who draws and paints. Paperback, 160 pages ...

Moira: The last book that I read and really enjoyed was The Likeness by Tana French. Its the second book in the Dublin Murder Squad series, each book featuring a different detective from the squad. The Likeness is the story of Detective Cassie Maddox, who is a main character in the first book in the series, In the Woods. Maddox is no longer on the murder squad, but goes undercover after a body is found and the victim looks exactly like Maddox. Not only does she look like Maddox, the victim is also using an alias that had been created for Maddox when she was an undercover cop. Maddox assumes the identity of the victim, and lives her life to find her killer.. While I did like the first book in the series, In the Woods, I was riveted by The Likeness. I was unable to put it down and stayed up late to finish it. French is a great character writer, her characters are strange and different, like no one you have ever met, yet you are easily able to imagine them being real. Her mysteries make you think ...
Maddie has been showing lots of signs that she is ready to read. She knew all of the consonant sounds and then very quickly learned the vowels. I bought her this really cute series of books. I skipped the level Pre-K of it and went right onto the Level 1 because in the book store she read the first book in it completely by herself the very first time. After you read a book all by yourself you get a sticker to put in the front of the book. I let her put a sticker in the first book as soon as we got home. She was very excited ...
So the first book in this series, Teardrop, was an okay read. Interesting and unique, with some weird flaws, but still felt grounded enough to keep me engaged. And then there was Waterfall. Im not sure where to start. I dont like being negative about a book, mainly because I know a ton of effort went into it and its still an expression of the author. But dang, this book was all over the place, with no logical flow or connection, no character development, and all sorts of details were omitted and made the whole thing confusing. Quite frankly I dont know why I kept reading--perhaps because I thought something would happen to bring it all together? I dont know. It certainly didnt. And it certainly did not wrap up well--well, other than that theres not another book in the series. Yikes. Not to be harsh, but I cant quite help it with this one. Eurekas character went from rather robust in the first book, to paper-thin here. There was magical abilities quite literally popping up everywhere. ...

Its been ten years since I sold my first book to Simon and Schuster. Loaded was the first book I tried to publish, and I know now that it was no small feat to get that done. There wasnt the self-publishing craze that there is now. You couldnt whip up a few hundred mediocre pages, peruse the stock photo sites for a cover, and throw it up on Amazon to see if it would stick like spaghetti on the ceiling. In fact, they didnt have Amazon. Ack! Egads! Life in a vacuum! Cats and dogs living together! How did we exist in such chaos? They did have something called the Palm Pilot, the first electronic book distributor, I believe. Loaded was in the top 50 for that when it came out. I guess it was a big deal, but I dont really think anyone had any idea of how the ebook world would eat the hard cover book publishing industry, with ketchup and onions. Burp. Excuse me! On Christmas day I re-released Loaded as an ebook with a new look, and Im curious to see how this big ol electronic publishing monster ...

More. This is the first book about both normal development of the nervous system and how early exposure to alcohol and nicotine interferes with this development. The developing nervous system is highly dynamic and vulnerable to genetic and epigenetic factors that can be additive or synergistic. Disruption of normal brain development leads to an array of developmental disorders. One of the most common of these is mental retardation, the prime cause of which is prenatal exposure to alcohol. As chapters in this book show, alcohol has direct effects on the developing neural system and it affects genetic regulation. Another common neurotoxin is nicotine, and it is discussed in this book for three reasons: (1) the number of adolescents who smoke cigarettes is rising in some populations; (2) prenatal ...
Kate Zambrenos first book, O Fallen Angel, won Chiasmus Presss Undoing the Novel First Book Contest, and her second book, Green Girl, was a finalist for the Starcherone Innovative Fiction Prize. So it should come as no surprise that her provocative new work, Heroines, published by Semiotext(e)s Active Agents imprint next month, challenges easy categorization, this time by poetically swerving in and out of memoir, diary, fiction, literary history, criticism, and theory. With equal parts unabashed pathos and exceptional intelligence, Heroines foregrounds female subjectivity to produce an impressive and original work that examines the suppression of various female modernists in relation to Zambrenos own complicated position as a writer and a wife. It concludes by bringing the problems of the modernists into conversation with the contemporary by offering a timely consideration of the role of the Internet and blogs in creating a community for women writers. What was it about the modernist wives ...
Do you love Eric Carle like I do? Well Night & Day Studios has partnered with Chorion to produce a series of educational apps for toddlers, preschoolers and elementary age children based on his books.. I got to try out the new My Very First App, and was instantly familiar with the pictures since we have Carles My Very First Book of Colors.. In the app there are 3 levels of game play: Easy (ages 1- 3), Medium (ages 2-5) and Hard (ages 3-6). In Easy mode the screen is divided in half-just like the original books-and the child can swipe the lower and upper halves to find a match (for example, the color yellow with a picture of lemons).. This game is good. Its just like My Very First Book of Colors and easy to play with.. The Medium and Hard modes are based on the game of Memory; children are presented with a set of cards face down and must find a match by flipping over cards and finding their matches or related concepts.. Again, a simple game and easy to play with too.. ...
The triumphs of recent biology - understanding hereditary disease, the modern theory of evolution - are all thanks to the fruit fly, the guinea pig, the zebra fish and a handful of other organisms, which have helped us unravel one of lifes greatest mysteries - inheritance.. This was my first book, originally published in the UK by William Heinemann in 2007, the year it won the inaugural Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Prize and was longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award.. In the book, I traced the story of heredity from Darwin hand-pollinating passion flowers in his back garden in an effort to find out whether his decision to marry his cousin had harmed their children, to todays high-tech laboratories, full of shoals of shimmering zebra fish, whose bodies are transparent until they are mature, allowing scientists to watch every step as a single fertilised cell multiples to become millions of specialised cells that make up a new fish. Each story has - piece by piece - revealed how DNA ...
Jim C. Hines / First Book, Jaleigh Johnson / First Book Friday is back! Overall, the feedback Ive seen for this series has been positive, so I intend to keep going until everyone gets sick of it or I run out of authors..

Jess stiffened as though shed been struck. Hed wanted to reassure her with his words, she knew, yet it was a painful reminder that she still wasnt expecting after nearly seven months of marriage. But, she told herself, what mattered most right now was the ranch, and building it with Jake. A quarter of a mile away, Taggart and Diaz had stopped and stood talking together, keeping a casual watch on the desert while the horses grazed. Their horses, hers and Jakes. Horses which would enable them to be less dependent on cattle for their income, and to be one of the first ranches in the northern Sierras to raise horses to sell. If only . . . Now that they were out of danger, she allowed herself to ponder the odd vision. The cold fear returned, and her knees and legs trembled ...
Todd not only corrected her condition but learned to walk again very well. She was noted for her ability to climb and descend stairs with extraordinary grace for the rest of her life. As her condition improved, she discontinued teaching voice and established a studio in Boston where she taught others with movement and postural difficulties to improve their own conditions. Toward the end of the 1920s she moved from Boston to New York City to teach this work at Teachers College, Columbia University. Her first book, The Thinking Body, was published in 1937, although some claim that an earlier edition came out in 1934. Prior to that, she had written short pamphlets, articles for the New England Journal of Medicine, and a syllabus for her students at Columbia University. She also gave lectures at the New School for Social Research in New York City. Asked why she had waited so long to publish her first book, Todd replied that since she was creating a new discipline, she wanted time to test its ...
03/27/2008. When David Ray Griffin conceived his first book regarding the events of Sept. 11, 2001, his interpretation of what transpired that day revolved around the concept of blowback, that the attacks were a byproduct of Americas decades of aggressive foreign policy toward the Middle East. In short, at the time, he bought the official story of 9/11. He wasnt letting the United States government off the hook for their role in the attacks, but he wasnt placing culpability where he would eventually place it: squarely on the shoulders of the Bush administration.. While researching for that first book, Griffin came across a growing community - concentrated mostly online - of people questioning the circumstances of Sept. 11 as reported by the mainstream media. Now, the retired professor, theologian and longtime Santa Barbara resident is one the leading voices of the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, citizens who believe the horror of that day was not caused by radical Islamic terrorists but was ...
Dagan and Leah have had more complications with the building of their house. Now they found out that the lot was too small to fit the house on! And they only have the average size that they are making houses these days--nothing extra. Poor planning on the part of the developers--made the cul-de-sac and/or lots too small. They will have problems with other people building there, also! Dagan and Leah were going to try to get another lot, but they had already purchased this one and it would have cost them additional money to get out of this sale on this cul-de-sac lot. So now they have talked to the contractors and have had to kind of redesign the house so that the garage is attached a little back and at an angle, if I understand correctly, (instead of the normal way straight across with the garage forward like they do now) to fit it around the cul-de-sac. It didnt even fit the normal way. Good grief! What next, eh? ...

... surgical techniques are used to remove an invasive malignancy that extends to the clitoris. Standard surgical procedures are followed in these cases. This includes evaluation and biopsy. Other factors that will affect the technique selected are age, other existing medical conditions, and obesity. Other considerations are the probability of extended hospital care and the development of infection at the surgical site.[3] The surgery proceeds with the use of general anesthesia, and prior to the vulvectomy/clitoridectomy an inguinal lymphyadenectomy is first done. The extent of the surgical site extends one to two centimeters beyond the boundaries of malignancy. Superficial lymph nodes may also need to be removed. If the malignancy is present in muscular tissue in the region, it is also removed. In some cases, the surgeon is able to preserve the clitoris though the malignancy may be extensive. The cancerous tissue is removed and the incision is closed.[3] Post operative care may ...
... through blocking or removing the tubes may be accomplished through an open abdominal surgery, a laparoscopic approach, or a hysteroscopic approach.[16] Depending on the approach chosen, the patient will need to undergo local, general, or spinal (regional) anesthesia. The procedure may be performed either immediately after the end of a pregnancy, termed a "postpartum" or "postabortion tubal ligation", or more than six weeks after the end of a pregnancy, termed an "interval tubal ligation".[5] The steps of the sterilization procedure will depend on the type of procedure being used. (See Tubal ligation methods below.) If the patient chooses a postpartum tubal ligation, the procedure will further depend on the delivery method. If the patient delivers via Cesarean section, the surgeon will remove part or all of the fallopian tubes after the infant has been delivered and the uterus has been closed.[16] Anesthesia for the tubal ligation will be the same as that being used for the ...
... is a medical technique for visualizing the interior of blood vessels. In this technique, a flexible fiberoptic catheter inserted directly into an artery.[1] It can be helpful in diagnosing e.g. arterial embolism.[1] Angioscopy is also used as an adjunctive procedure during vascular bypass to visualize valves within venous conduits. The instrument used to perform angioscopy is called as angioscope. Coronary artery angioscopy, which first was used to reveal the presence of a blood clot in the coronary arteries of patients with unstable angina and myocardial infarction,[2] is now widely used in catherization laboratories to visualize stents. ...
... is a common medical procedure in which an instrument called a proctoscope (also known as a rectoscope, although the latter may be a bit longer) is used to examine the anal cavity, rectum, or sigmoid colon. A proctoscope is a short, straight, rigid, hollow metal tube, and usually has a small light bulb mounted at the end. It is approximately 5 inches or 15 cm long, while a rectoscope is approximately 10 inches or 25 cm long.[1] During proctoscopy, the proctoscope is lubricated and inserted into the rectum, and then the obturator is removed, allowing an unobstructed view of the interior of the rectal cavity. This procedure is normally done to inspect for hemorrhoids or rectal polyps and might be mildly uncomfortable as the proctoscope is inserted further into the rectum. Modern fibre-optic proctoscopes allow more extensive observation with less discomfort. ...
In treating müllerian agenesis, the Vecchietti procedure is a laparoscopic surgical technique that produces a vagina of dimensions (depth and width) comparable to those of a normal vagina (ca. 8.0 cm. deep).[28][29] A small, plastic sphere ("olive") is threaded (sutured) against the vaginal area; the threads are drawn though the vaginal skin, up through the abdomen, and through the navel. There, the threads are attached to a traction device, and then daily are drawn tight so that the "olive" is pulled inwards and stretches the vagina, by approximately 1.0 cm. per day, thereby creating a vagina, approximately 7.0 cm. deep by 7.0 cm. wide, in 7 days. The mean operating room (OR) time for the Vecchietti vaginoplasty is approximately 45 minutes; yet, depending upon the patient and her indications, the procedure might require more time.[30] The outcomes of Vecchietti technique via the laparoscopic approach are found to be comparable to the procedure using laparotomy.[31] In vaginal hypoplasia, ...
After completion of surgery, the patient is transferred to the post anesthesia care unit and closely monitored. When the patient is judged to have recovered from the anesthesia, he/she is either transferred to a surgical ward elsewhere in the hospital or discharged home. During the post-operative period, the patient's general function is assessed, the outcome of the procedure is assessed, and the surgical site is checked for signs of infection. There are several risk factors associated with postoperative complications, such as immune deficiency and obesity. Obesity has long been considered a risk factor for adverse post-surgical outcomes. It has been linked to many disorders such as obesity hypoventilation syndrome, atelectasis and pulmonary embolism, adverse cardiovascular effects, and wound healing complications.[11] If removable skin closures are used, they are removed after 7 to 10 days post-operatively, or after healing of the incision is well under way. It is not uncommon for surgical ...
Some historians (for example, Morell Mackenzie) credit Benjamin Guy Babington (1794-1866), who called his device the "glottiscope", with the invention of the laryngoscope.[1] Philipp von Bozzini (1773-1809)[2][3] and Garignard de la Tour were other early physicians to use mouth mirrors to inspect the oropharynx and hypopharynx.[4] In 1854, the vocal pedagogist Manuel García (1805-1906) became the first man to view the functioning glottis and larynx in a living human. García developed a tool that used two mirrors for which the Sun served as an external light source.[5][6] Using this device, he was able to observe the function of his own glottic apparatus and the uppermost portion of his trachea. He presented his findings at the Royal Society of London in 1855.[7][8] All previous observations of the glottis and larynx had been performed under indirect vision (using mirrors) until 23 April 1895, when Alfred Kirstein (1863-1922) of Germany first described direct visualization of the vocal cords. ...

... /ˌoʊ.əfəˈrɛktəmi/ (from Greek ᾠοφόρος, ōophóros, 'egg-bearing' + ἐκτομή, ektomḗ, 'a cutting out of') is the surgical removal of an ovary or ovaries.[1] The surgery is also called ovariectomy, but this term is mostly used in reference to animals, e.g. the surgical removal of ovaries from laboratory animals. Removal of the ovaries of females is the biological equivalent of castration of males; the term castration is only occasionally used in the medical literature to refer to oophorectomy of women. In veterinary medicine, the removal of ovaries and uterus is called ovariohysterectomy (spaying) and is a form of sterilization. Partial oophorectomy or ovariotomy is a term sometimes used to describe a variety of surgeries such as ovarian cyst removal, or resection of parts of the ovaries.[2] This kind of surgery is fertility-preserving, although ovarian failure may be relatively frequent. Most of the long-term risks and consequences of oophorectomy are not or ...
Complications may arise from either the introduction or spreading of infection, adverse reaction to general anesthesia required during the surgery or from instrumentation itself, if the procedure is performed blindly (without the use of any imaging technique such as ultrasound or hysteroscopy). One risk of sharp curettage is uterine perforation. Although normally no treatment is required for uterine perforation, a laparoscopy may be done to verify that bleeding has stopped on its own. Infection of the uterus or fallopian tubes is also a possible complication, especially if the woman has an untreated sexually transmitted infection.[2] Another risk is intrauterine adhesions, or Asherman's syndrome. One study found that in women who had one or two sharp curettage procedures for miscarriage, 14-16% developed some adhesions.[8] Women who underwent three sharp curettage procedures for miscarriage had a 32% risk of developing adhesions.[8] The risk of Asherman's syndrome was found to be 30.9% in women ...
During the procedure the patient is often given sedation intravenously, employing agents such as fentanyl or midazolam. Although meperidine (Demerol) may be used as an alternative to fentanyl, the concern of seizures has relegated this agent to second choice for sedation behind the combination of fentanyl and midazolam. The average person will receive a combination of these two drugs, usually between 25 and 100 µg IV fentanyl and 1-4 mg IV midazolam. Sedation practices vary between practitioners and nations; in some clinics in Norway, sedation is rarely administered.[41][42] Some endoscopists are experimenting with, or routinely use, alternative or additional methods such as nitrous oxide[43][44] and propofol,[45] which have advantages and disadvantages relating to recovery time (particularly the duration of amnesia after the procedure is complete), patient experience, and the degree of supervision needed for safe administration. This sedation is called "twilight anesthesia". For some patients ...
