Traumatic vasospastic disease in chain-saw operators. (1/2189)

Raynaud's phenomenon is commonly induced in chain-saw operators by vibration; the hand guiding the tool is the more severely affected. The condition tends to persist after use of the chain-saw is stopped but compensation is rarely sought. Among 17 cases of Raynaud's phenomenon in lumberjacks the condition was found to be related to use of the chain-saw in 14, 10 of whom had to give up their work in colder weather because the disease was so disabling. Two criteria essential to establish the condition as vibration-induced Raynaud's phenomenon are the presence of symptoms for at least 2 years and a history of at least 1 year's constant use of the chain-saw. Careful physical examination and simple tests of vascular function will provide objective evidence of permanent damage by which the patients may be classified and compensated.  (+info)

Contact dermatitis in Alstroemeria workers. (2/2189)

Hand dermatitis is common in workers in the horticultural industry. This study determined the prevalence of hand dermatitis in workers of Alstroemeria cultivation, investigated how many workers had been sensitized by tulipalin A (the allergen in Alstroemeria) and took stock of a wide range of determinants of hand dermatitis. The 12-month period prevalence of major hand dermatitis amounted to 29.5% whereas 7.4% had minor dermatitis. Of these workers, 52.1% were sensitized for tulipalin A. Several personal and work-related determinants played a role in the multifactorial aetiology of hand dermatitis. Factors which showed a significant relationship with major hand dermatitis were: female sex, atopic dermatitis, chapped hands and the frequency of washing hands. It may be concluded that the Alstroemeria workers are a population at risk of developing contact dermatitis and it might be useful to carry out an educational campaign to lower the high prevalence.  (+info)

Symptoms, employment history and clinical investigations including radiology, spirometry and serial peak expiratory flow rate records were retrospectively analyzed from clinical records. The results showed a consistent syndrome of work-related eye, nose and throat irritation followed after a variable period by shortness of breath. The latent interval between starting work and first developing symptoms was typically 4 years (median = 4 yrs; range = 0-28). The interval preceding the development of dysponea was longer and much more variable (median = 16 yrs; range = 3-40). Spirometry was not markedly abnormal in the group but 57% of workers had abnormal serial peak expiratory flow rate charts. Workers in this industry experience upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms consistent with irritant exposure. The long-term functional significance of these symptoms should be formally investigated.  (+info)

The Sock Test for evaluating activity limitation in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4/2189)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Assessment within rehabilitation often must reflect patients' perceived functional problems and provide information on whether these problems are caused by impairments of the musculoskeletal system. Such capabilities were examined in a new functional test, the Sock Test, simulating the activity of putting on a sock. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Intertester reliability was examined in 21 patients. Concurrent validity, responsiveness, and predictive validity were examined in a sample of 337 patients and in subgroups of this sample. RESULTS: Intertester reliability was acceptable. Sock Test scores were related to concurrent reports of activity limitation in dressing activities. Scores also reflected questionnaire-derived reports of problems in a broad range of activities of daily living and pain and were responsive to change over time. Increases in age and body mass index increased the likelihood of Sock Test scores indicating activity limitation. Pretest scores were predictive of perceived difficulties in dressing activities after 1 year. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Sock Test scores reflect perceived activity limitations and restrictions of the musculoskeletal system.  (+info)

Special medical examination program reform proposal in Korea. (5/2189)

We are at a time when reform in the special medical examination program in keeping with the changing times is desperately needed because the common perception of workers, employers, and medical examination facilities is "special medical examination is merely ritualistic and unproductive." Therefore, we have tried to set forth the basic structure for reforming the special medical examination program by taking a close look at the management status of the current program and analyzing its problems. The specifics of the special medical examination program reform proposal consist of three parts such as the types, health evaluation based on occupational medicine, and the interval, subject selection, items and procedure. Pre-placement medical examination and non-periodic medical examinations-as-necessary are introduced newly. Health evaluation based on occupational medicine consists of classification of health status, evaluation of work suitability, and post-examination measure. Details regarding the medical examination interval, subject selection, items and procedure were changed.  (+info)

Should a history section be included on the National Youth Sports Program preparticipation physical examination? (6/2189)

The National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) is an annual event sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association that provides structured sports and enrichment programs to youth of low socioeconomic status. As part of the program, youths undergo a free medical examination that uses a physical examination checklist but does not include a section on medical history. To determine what additional information a medical history would provide, a history form was used in conjunction with the regular preparticipation examination for participants in the 1996 NYSP at the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The history form provided information such as family history of sudden death, personal history of asthma or bone injury, and whether participants took medications or used corrective lenses. Seventy-nine percent of the completed history forms documented a positive response to at least one question. Of these, only 5% had physical findings on examination. Conversely, 15% of participants had physical findings that were not reported on the history form. Because much of what is discovered by a medical history often is not found on physical examination and because history information can be used to prevent the occurrence of an accident or illness, this study suggests that the use of such a form is beneficial in providing a more comprehensive screening.  (+info)

American Society of Clinical Oncology 1998 update of recommended breast cancer surveillance guidelines. (7/2189)

OBJECTIVE: To determine an effective, evidence-based, postoperative surveillance strategy for the detection and treatment of recurrent breast cancer. Tests are recommended only if they have an impact on the outcomes specified by American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) for clinical practice guidelines. POTENTIAL INTERVENTION: All tests described in the literature for postoperative monitoring were considered. In addition, the data were critically evaluated to determine the optimal frequency of monitoring. OUTCOME: Outcomes of interest include overall and disease-free survival, quality of life, toxicity reduction, and secondarily cost-effectiveness. EVIDENCE: A search was performed to determine all relevant articles published over the past 20 years on the efficacy of surveillance testing for breast cancer recurrence. These publications comprised both retrospective and prospective studies. VALUES: Levels of evidence and guideline grades were rated by a standard process. More weight was given to studies that tested a hypothesis directly relating testing to one of the primary outcomes in a randomized design. BENEFITS, HARMS, AND COSTS: The possible consequences of false-positive and -negative tests were considered in evaluating a preference for one of two tests providing similar information. Cost alone was not a determining factor. RECOMMENDATIONS: The attached guidelines and text summarize the updated recommendations of the ASCO breast cancer expert panel. Data are sufficient to recommend monthly breast self-examination, annual mammography of the preserved and contralateral breast, and a careful history and physical examination every 3 to 6 months for 3 years, then every 6 to 12 months for 2 years, then annually. Data are not sufficient to recommend routine bone scans, chest radiographs, hematologic blood counts, tumor markers (carcinoembryonic antigen, cancer antigen [CA] 15-5, and CA 27.29), liver ultrasonograms, or computed tomography scans. VALIDATION: The recommendations of the breast cancer expert panel were evaluated and supported by the ASCO Health Services Research Committee reviewers and the ASCO Board of Directors.  (+info)

An analysis of digital rectal examination and serum-prostate-specific antigen in the early detection of prostate cancer in general practice. (8/2189)

BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is now the commonest cancer in men and the second commonest cause of death from cancer. However, general-practice-based research on prostate cancer remains scanty. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the acceptability of digital rectal examination (DRE) and serum-prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the early detection of prostate cancer in a general practice setting. Another aim was to ascertain the incidence of prostate cancer among 50-79-year-old men in the solo practice. METHODS: We conducted an opportunistic, prospective, population-based study involving men with no prior, proven history of prostate cancer. RESULTS: A total of 211 (87.6%) out of 241 targeted patients agreed to take part in the study. Abnormal DREs were found in 9%, while 9.5% of PSA tests were found to be abnormal. One or both tests were abnormal in 29 patients-13.7% of the study population. Eleven biopsies were performed during the study, with cancer detected in three (27.3%)-1.4% of the total population. Eighteen patients were not biopsied either on clinical grounds or by personal choice. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of abnormal DRE and PSA tests was lower than that detected in previous hospital or specialist-based studies. Both tests were found to be highly acceptable to the population studied. Not all patients with abnormal early detection tests need necessarily proceed to further invasive investigations.  (+info)

STUDY OBJECTIVE--To examine the impact of a comprehensive periodic health examination programme on health care utilisation and costs in a working population. DESIGN--A cohort method was used to observe the trends in health care utilisation and costs for a group of local government employees from 1 February 1986 until 31 January 1992, during which time (in 1988) a comprehensive periodic health examination programme had been introduced. Health care utilisation was measured by a claim rate per employee (number of claims in a year divided by number of employees) and a utilisation rate per 100 employees (number of employees who submitted at least one claim in a year divided by number of employees x 100). Health care costs were measured by claim costs per employee (total cost of claims divided by number of employees). National and prefectural changes in per capita health care costs were used for the adjustment of claim costs. Internal comparisons were made in relation to the intensiveness of the ...
Bleeding and bruising are common symptoms in the primary care setting. The patient history can help determine whether the bruising or bleeding is abnormal. The International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis has developed a bleeding assessment tool that can be used to indicate possible pathology. A family history of bleeding problems may suggest a hereditary coagulation defect. Such a history is especially important in children who may not have experienced a major bleeding episode. Medication review can identify pharmacologic causes of the bleeding or bruising. Physical examination findings such as mucocutaneous bleeding suggest that the underlying condition is caused by platelet dysfunction, whereas hemarthroses or hematomas are more common in coagulopathy. If the history and physical examination findings suggest a bleeding diathesis, initial laboratory testing includes a complete blood count, peripheral blood smear, prothrombin time (PT), and partial thromboplastin time (PTT). A normal PT and PTT
Additional clinical signs may result from the underlying condition that is causing the PU/PD. For example, pets with kidney disease may vomit, lose weight, or stop eating in addition to exhibiting PU/PD. Unless directed by your veterinarian, you should never limit your pets access to water.. How Are Polyuria and Polydipsia Diagnosed?. A medical history and physical examination findings can provide valuable information for your veterinarian. The medical history may include trying to determine how long the problem has been going on and whether any other signs of illness have been observed. Physical examination findings may reveal evidence of underlying illness. For example, a female dog with a uterine infection may have a vaginal discharge, and a cat with thyroid disease may have an increased heart rate and weight loss.. Your veterinarian may recommend a urinalysis, serum chemistry profile, complete blood count, or other initial diagnostic tests to begin looking into the cause of your pets ...
Normal systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure is defined as ,95th percentile for the childs age, gender, and height percentile.1 Stage 1 hypertension (HTN) is SBP and/or DBP ≥95th percentile but ,99th percentile+5 mm Hg; Stage 2 HTN is SBP and/or DBP ,99th percentile +5 mm Hg. It is important to measure BP by auscultation with a cuff that covers ≥80% of the midarm circumference; a smaller cuff can result in artificially high readings.1 Ambulatory BP monitoring demonstrates that daytime SBP, DBP, and mean arterial BP increase significantly with increasing BMI.25 Although the pathophysiology of HTN in children with obesity is not fully understood,26 hyperinsulinemia, adipokine activation, perinephric fat effects on the kidney and cytokine action on the vascular endothelium, and cortisol and nitric oxide levels are contributory.27-29. Diagnosing and managing HTN quickly and effectively may affect long-term morbidity. Increased BMI in childhood predicts arterial stiffening in ...
Background: Little is known about using the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) in physical diagnosis courses. The purpose of this study was to describe student performance on an OSCE in a physical diagnosis course. Methods: Cross-sectional study at Harvard Medical School, 1997-1999, for 489 second-year students. Results: Average total OSCE score was 57% (range 39-75%). Among clinical skills, students scored highest on patient interaction (72%), followed by examination technique (65%), abnormality identification (62%), history-taking (60%), patient presentation (60%), physical examination knowledge (47%), and differential diagnosis (40%) (p , .0001). Among 16 OSCE stations, scores ranged from 70% for arthritis to 29% for calf pain (p , .0001). Teaching sites accounted for larger adjusted differences in station scores, up to 28%, than in skill scores (9%) (p , .0001). Conclusions: Students scored higher on interpersonal and technical skills than on interpretive or integrative skills. ...

Diagnosis. The diagnosis of vestibular disease involves a physical examination and a neurologic examination (specific physical examination tests used to assess the patients nerve and brain function). Your veterinarian will likely examine the ear canal to see if there is evidence of an infection or tumor. X-rays of the skull may also show tumors or evidence of fluid or inflammation in the middle or inner ear.. Some veterinarians have access to sophisticated equipment for computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can provide detailed images of the brain and inner ear. If this equipment is not available, diagnosis is based largely on clinical signs and physical examination findings.. Treatment. The goal of treatment is to address the underlying problem and keep the animal as comfortable as possible until recovery is adequate. If the patient is suffering from an ear infection, the infection should be treated. Sometimes, a course of antibiotics is given. Other treatments ...
In summary, bedside airway examination tests for detecting a difficult airway are intended as screening tests and are expected to miss only very few patients with a potential problem. They are recommended in airway management guidelines around the world, but we have found that they often fail to meet their goal and that most are little better than simply flipping a coin to decide if the patient has a difficult airway. On the other hand, the tests were consistently better at showing that a patient did not have a difficult airway when there really did not have one, but this is of little relevance in this context. In conclusion, therefore, standard bedside airway examination tests for difficult airways in patients with no apparent airway abnormalities do not appear to be good screening tests, and we urge great caution in their use and interpretation.. Monaz: If youd like to look in more depth at the results of the tests individually and collectively, the full Cochrane Review is available online at ...

Background: Physical examination tests of the shoulder (PETS) are clinical examination maneuvers designed to aid the assessment of shoulder complaints. Despite more than 180 PETS described in the literature, evidence of their validity and usefulness in diagnosing the shoulder is questioned. Methods: This meta-analysis aims to use diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) to evaluate how much PETS shift overall probability and to rank the test performance of single PETS in order to aid the clinicians choice of which tests to use. This study adheres to the principles outlined in the Cochrane guidelines and the PRISMA statement. A fixed effect model was used to assess the overall diagnostic validity of PETS by pooling DOR for different PETS with similar biomechanical rationale when possible. Single PETS were assessed and ranked by DOR. Clinical performance was assessed by sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and likelihood ratio. Results: Six thousand nine-hundred abstracts and 202 full-text articles were ...
Your companion will then undergo a preliminary examination. After this, the attending surgeon will review history and physical examination findings with you and formulate a plan for further diagnosis.. For example, if radiography or ultrasound examinations are necessary, mild sedation may be required and imaging will be performed within 3-4 hours. You will be invited to return to review the results of these and other tests, and to discuss options for medical or surgical management.. In general, more invasive diagnostic procedures such as biopsy and advanced imaging are scheduled on the following day. If no further diagnosis is required, then surgery is usually performed on the day after initial consultation.. As you will understand, patients with life threatening conditions in need of immediate surgical care will take priority and this can delay your consultation. We ask for your patience and promise that we will strive to make your visit a helpful and satisfying experience.. ...
The student(s) will then inquire about your pets history and perform a physical examination of your pet.

A cardiologist or cardiology resident will then accompany the student(s) back to your examination room and, after introducing themselves, will examine your pet and discuss their initial findings and recommendations for management of your pets case.. In most cases, you will be asked to leave your pet in the care of the student(s) after this initial examination so that we may begin appropriate diagnostic testing, which commonly includes: electrocardiography, ...
Preoperative testing (e.g., chest radiography, electrocardiography, laboratory testing, urinalysis) is often performed before surgical procedures. These investigations can be helpful to stratify risk, direct anesthetic choices, and guide postoperative management, but often are obtained because of protocol rather than medical necessity. The decision to order preoperative tests should be guided by the patients clinical history, comorbidities, and physical examination findings. Patients with signs or symptoms of active cardiovascular disease should be evaluated with appropriate testing, regardless of their preoperative status. Electrocardiography is recommended for patients undergoing high-risk surgery and those undergoing intermediate-risk surgery who have additional risk factors. Patients undergoing low-risk surgery do not require electrocardiography. Chest radiography is reasonable for patients at risk of postoperative pulmonary complications if the results would change perioperative management.
Symptoms of liver disease are commonly nonspecific and can be gastrointestinal (vomiting, diarrhoea, anorexia), urinary (PU/PD, problems due to urate urolithiasis), haematological (pallor, icterus), and/or neurological (behaviour change, ataxia, seizure). Physical examination findings differ widely and may include hepatomegaly, ascites, abdominal pain, weight loss, fever and abnormal neurological test results. Hepatobiliary and vascular disorders can originate primarily from the liver, but can also be secondary to multiple extrahepatic disorders, such as gastrointestinal, haematological and circulatory diseases, endocrinopathies, neoplasia and systemic infections (including sepsis). Drugs and toxins can also cause primary and secondary liver problems.. Many biochemical tests are available to evaluate the livers anabolic and/or catabolic function and hepatic circulation. These include measurement of serum bile acid concentrations, plasma ammonia concentration and bile pigment (bilirubin) ...

The patient has a history of menorrhagia and notes that her mother had the same problem. Physical examination findings are unremarkable except for some bruising in her lower extremities, which the patient explains are due to my usual clumsiness. She denies any easy bleeding in the past. CBC is normal. Which of the following results would you expect to see?. a. Increased prothrombin time (PT). b. Increased activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). c. Increased bleeding time. d. Decreased factor IX assay. Answer: c. Explanation: This patient has the classic history for von Willebrand disease, which would result in an increased bleeding time with normal PT and aPTT.. ...
As radiologists, we depend heavily on imaging as our primary diagnostic tool. We have thus come to believe that what we see with imaging is objective truth: only what we see is real; what we do not see does not exist. Most radiologists have little direct patient contact, so there is a tendency to discount or ignore the patients history and physical examination findings. These aspects of diagnosis, which are dependent upon patient responses, are considered to be too subjective.. Is there any facet of radiology that has led to more controversy than diskography, an examination dependent more on a patients responses than on imaging? Some radiologists feel there is no scientific basis for diskography, because it relies heavily on a patients subjective responses. Others further complain that not enough reproducible studies have been performed to assure scientific credibility.. Radiologists may find it hard to believe that what we see is not always clinically significant, and what we cannot see may ...
The focus of this section will be on anemia related to factors other than traumatic anemia which is covered in Chapter 57. The prehospital provider will often encounter symptomatic anemia which may be at the root of activating the 9-1-1 system though not as obvious as a 9-1-1 call for clinical bleeding. The chief complaint with symptomatic anemia is more likely to be related to the ramifications of decreased oxygen-carrying capacity than the knowledge that the RBC volume is compromised. The physical examination findings are well known to the reader as are the general principles of management. The question is what parts of the standard emergency department schema are applicable to the prehospital environment and how much of it is truly needed? We will divide the discussion into three sections. The first two sections will relate to insufficient RBC production or excessive RBC destruction with the third focusing on acute blood loss other than from traumatic causes. ...

We thank Gowda et al and Yudkowsky for engaging with us in a dialogue about the optimal approach to teaching and assessing the physical exam. It is clear we all agree that the physical exam requires renewed focus and curriculum development, and we hope this discussion contributes to returning the physical exam to a place of prominence in the clinical realm. We appreciate the opportunity to reply to their comments.. First, we continue to assert that the Core + Clusters approach is unlikely to significantly decrease the cognitive load of learning the physical exam. Gowda et al write that they envision a limited set of clusters, and yet, since the clusters are still in development, the number and scope of necessary clusters is still unknown. We believe the list will turn out to be quite extensive. Also, we do not advocate the performance of unnecessary physical exam maneuvers, but we feel that the head-to-toe is a prudent approach to assessing patients with vague and/or numerous symptoms. ...
Flexor tenosynovitis is the infection of a digits flexor tendon sheath and is considered an orthopedic emergency. Clinical diagnosis of this condition is made using the four cardinal Kanavels signs: tenderness along the flexor tendon sheath, flexion of the finger, pain with passive extension, and fusiform swelling [1]. Studies have shown that the sensitivity of the Kanavel signs ranges from 91.4% to 97.1% and specificity ranges from 51.3% to 69.2% [2]. As diagnosis is primarily made through history and physical examination findings, a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can have negative consequences including but not limited to: worsened range of motion owing to adhesions, tendon necrosis and rupture, deformity, and loss of limb [1].. POCUS can be used as a helpful adjunct to history and physical examination findings as shown by two large studies [3, 7], one case series [4] and several case reports [1, 8, 9]. One large study examining 57 cases of early flexor tenosynovitis found that ultrasound ...
If the trauma patient is conscious and able to cooperate, a brief history may elicit additional risk factors for a difficult airway including obstructive sleep apnea, arthritis, head and neck cancer or radiation, or any difficulty with previous airway interventions. In addition, history of difficult prehospital airway interventions should be a cue that the current emergency department airway management will be challenging. While traditional difficult airway scoring systems such as the Mallampati and LEMON scores are not applicable in trauma patients due to the emergent nature of the airway intervention, several physical examination findings may be useful to determine increasing difficulty with airway management. Keeping in mind that the vast majority of trauma patients will have limited neck mobility due to cervical spine immobilization and cervical collar, additional physical examination findings that portend a difficult airway include presence of a beard or facial hair, obesity, and evidence ...
Adrenocortical insufficiency can result from the following causes: idiopathic adrenal atrophy, immune-mediated adrenocortical destruction, glucocorticoid administration, o,p-DDD treatment, hemorrhage or infarction, mycotic or other granulomatous disease, neoplastic involvement, surgical adrenalectomy, and anterior pituitary gland insufficiency.

Breast self-examination (BSE) is a patient-centred, inexpensive and noninvasive method of screening for breast cancer. In North America most women are aware of BSE, and about one-third perform the examination regularly.1 The majority of primary care physicians report either teaching BSE to their patients or referring them to other health care providers for teaching.2,3,4 Physicians value BSE and want training on how to teach it.2 In fact, a survey of family physicians found that physicians rated BSE as a more effective screening tool than clinical breast examination.3 Over the last 30 years BSE has been recommended by leading cancer organizations, such as the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.. A 1987 systematic review for the US Preventive Services Task Force found insufficient evidence to recommend BSE as a breast cancer screening tool.1 The Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination (now the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care) came to a similar ...

Primary care providers (PCPs) are evaluating increasing numbers of concussions, but it is unknown how often they are documenting concussion-specific history and physical examination findings vital for this process. This study reviews clinical documentation to determine how PCPs are evaluating concussed patients. PCPs often did not document important aspects of concussion history, including dizziness (48%), nausea (48%), vision changes (54%), cognitive complaints (54%), emotional changes (83%), sleep difficulties (84%), and neck pain (87%). Additionally, they often did not document important aspects of a concussion physical examination, including detailed neurologic examination (73%), clinical cognitive assessment (87%), balance testing (59%), and neck evaluation (54%). Omitting these parts of the history and physical examination could result in a premature return to play. ...

The rationale for breast examination during pregnancy is to determine whether any problems with breastfeeding can be anticipated and to use the opportunity for the healthcare provider and pregnant woman to discuss breastfeeding. Examination by a healthcare provider is recommended in some countries. Breast examination can also be performed by the pregnant woman herself. Furthermore, breast examination during pregnancy has been recommended as a screening method for breast cancer, although no evidence has been found to support breast examination by a doctor, nurse or the woman as a primary screening technique for breast cancer. A womans breasts are often tender and swollen during pregnancy. This makes examination difficult and potentially compounds a womans feelings of discomfort or vulnerability. Some women may find a clinical breast examination during pregnancy intrusive, and identification of flat or inverted nipples may actually act as a deterrent to breastfeeding. No randomised controlled ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnosis and management of ectopic pregnancy using bedside transvaginal ultrasonography in the ED. T2 - a 2-year experience. AU - Adhikari, Srikar. AU - Blaivas, Michael. AU - Lyon, Matthew L. PY - 2007/7/1. Y1 - 2007/7/1. N2 - Objectives: The objective of this study was to describe diagnosis and management of ectopic pregnancy using bedside transvaginal ultrasound (US) in an established emergency US program. Methods: This was a retrospective study on patients presenting over a 2-year period performed at a level I urban academic emergency department (ED). The ED sees 78 000 patients annually and has a residency and active US program. Patients were eligible for inclusion if they were pregnant, seen in the ED for a first-trimester complication, and underwent a bedside emergency US suggesting an ectopic pregnancy. Emergency department US logs were reviewed for findings suggestive of ectopic pregnancy. Medical records were reviewed for history, physical examination findings, ...
Peter A. Huijbregts, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT. Abstract: This article describes the structure and function of the labral-bicipital complex. It also discusses incidence, classification, injury mechanisms, subjective and physical examination findings, and conservative treatment options for lesions to the labral-bicipital complex, also known as SLAP-lesions.. Key Words: Labrum, SLAP-Lesion, Structure, Function, Diagnosis, Treatmen. The glenoid labrum receives only scant attention in classic anatomy texts: Spalteholz and Spanner1 devote one line in their entire text to the labrum, describing it as a fibrocartilaginous structure reinforcing the glenoid cavity. Advances in arthroscopic surgery have, however, greatly increased our need for a more precise anatomic description. At the same time, these advances have enhanced our ability to diagnose, treat, and understand labral pathology2, including lesions to the superior labrum and the tendon of the long head of the biceps. This labral-bicipital-complex is ...
Caso 1: An Infant with Skeletal Abnormalities and Facial Dysmorphisms. Jieun Kwak Neoreviews Vol. 18 Nr. 3 Marzo 2017. A male infant is born at 29 5/7 weeks gestation via vaginal delivery to a 35-year-old gravida 2 para 1 mother with limited prenatal care. His mother initially presents at a referring hospital in preterm labor, where she is given a dose of betamethasone and then transferred. On admission, prenatal laboratory tests are performed. Labor is augmented due to a 7-cm dilation. The infants birth measurements are as follows: weight, 1.530 g (68th percentile); length, 35 cm (3rd percentile) and head circumference, 27.5 cm (45th percentile). His Apgar scores are 8 at 1 minute and 9 at 5 minutes. His physical examination findings are notable for musculoskeletal abnormalities, including limited extension at the elbows bilaterally and an internally rotated left shoulder. He is also noted to have slightly anteverted nares and a depressed nasal bridge. On abdominal examination, he has slight ...
Objectives: The aim of our study is to investigate the frequency of structural heart diseases in patients with Marfan syndrome (MS) and to reveal the importance of clinical follow-up in MS. Materials and methods: Study population consisted of 17 patients admitted to the Pediatric Cardiology department between January 2005 and March 2010 with the diagnosis of MS according to the Ghent criteria. Patients were evaluated for the eye, genetic and the cardiovascular system abnormalities. Physical examination findings, echocardiographic, and radiological examinations of the patients were evaluated retrospectively. Results: Of the 17 cases, 9 were girls and 8 were males, ages ranged from 1 month to 17 years (mean 9.7 years). There was a second degree of kinship between mothers and fathers in 5 patients. Respiratory distress, syncope, chest pain and palpitation were the most seen in the presentation complaint of the patients. Skeletal findings observed in 13 patients, 4 patients had subluxation of the ...

This paper describes very rare chemical poisoning and characteristics of patients with acute endosulfan mass poisoning in a rural area of Turkey and our experiences of these patients. We included 41 patients who were treated in our hospital with the diagnosis of endosulfan poisoning. After the first vital intervention they were examined in terms of age, sex, symptoms and physical examination findings, laboratory results, treatment and outcome. Forty-one patients were admitted to the emergency department (ED) after triage. Nineteen (46.3%) of the patients were female, 22 (53.7%) were male. The mean age was 279 +/- 16.0 years (1-67 years). The mean time to the ED was 4.1 +/- 0.9 h (3-6.5 h). The most common symptoms were anxiety (976%), nausea (56.1%) and vomiting (48.8%). Tests of the blood samples obtained at the ED revealed leucocytosis (11070.6 +/- 4302.5/mu l), increased blood glucose, LDH, CK and CK-MB levels. Toxicological analysis of blood and urine samples revealed endosulfan as the ...
Renal cell carcinoma is infrequent in children; consequently it is important to communicate its diagnosis and follow up. The behaviour of this type of tumor is better characterized in adults and in this setting the treatment of choice is surgical resection. However, the place of chemo- and radiotherapy has not been well defined. Here, we present a 9-year-old boy with renal cell carcinoma demonstrating only hematuria without any pathological physical examination findings. The mass was described by abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography in the left kidney. After the left nephroureterectomy, the patient was given no adjuvant therapy.
Xanthelasmas may be associated with primary biliary cirrhosis and familial hypercholesterolemia. Xanthelasmas are yellow plaques on the medial aspects of the eyelids and are commonly bilateral. Each lesion is filled with lipid-laden histiocytes. While xanthomas that appear on the eye are called xanthelasmas, those that appear on the Achilles are called tendinous xanthomas. Another example of physical examination findings that suggest hyperlipidemia are a corneal arcus, or lipid deposited in the cornea. Recall that in familial hypercholesterolemia, patients have elevated LDL due to a defective or absent LDL receptor. Heterozygotes have cholesterol in the range of 300 mg/DL, while homozygotes have levels above 700. These patients are at risk of severe atherosclerosis early in life ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Buzz in the axilla. T2 - A new physical sign in hemodialysis forearm graft evaluation. AU - Agarwal, Rajiv. AU - McDougal, Grant. PY - 2001/10. Y1 - 2001/10. N2 - The value of physical signs in predicting flow rates or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) hemodialysis graft survival is not well known. Simultaneous physical examination and flow measurements were performed in 67 dialysis patients with PTFE grafts over a period of 1 month. Physical signs included the presence and location of a palpable thrill, location and auscultatory nature of the bruit, and presence or absence of a pulsation. Patients were followed up for 1 year to detect the time to failure defined by angioplasty, clotting, or surgical revision. There was a fair correlation between physical signs and graft flow rates. In a multivariate model, systolic blood pressure, location of the thrill, and patient age were the best predictors of graft flow. During follow-up, there were 68 graft failures (30 grafts, angioplasty ...

Examples of high-risk clinical situations are 2 first-degree relatives with breast cancer, a history of lobular carcinoma in situ or a history of atypical hyperplasia. As the risk of breast cancer increases above 5% and the benefits outweigh the harms, a woman may choose to take tamoxifen. The duration of tamoxifen use in such situations is 5 years based on the results from trials of tamoxifen involving women with early breast cancer.. If a woman raises concerns or has already been evaluated and is calculated to be at high risk, then individuals experienced and skilled in counselling may discuss the potential benefits and harms of tamoxifen use. ...

Continuous wave Doppler or Duplex ultrasound can provide essential information in many clinical presentations: when a patient complains of pain related to varicosities, when the physical examination reveals varicosities larger than 3 mm in diameter, when varicosities of any size extend into the groin or the popliteal fossa, and when a feeding vessel is sought for a focal area of grouped venulectases (1-2 mm).1 Guidelines for the use of this diagnostic aid to physical examination are listed in Table 8-1. Doppler examination may suggest the need for additional testing but is especially helpful as an inexpensive screening tool if a duplex ultrasound examination is not available as is currently the case in many developing nations. ...
