A Novel Technique for Recurrent Tube Exposure Repair

J. Minjy Kang, Yen Cheng Hsia, Ying Han
2020 Case Reports in Ophthalmological Medicine  
Tube exposure can lead to vision-threatening consequences and requires prompt surgical attention.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was made possible in part by NIH-NEI EY002162-Core Grant for Vision Research and by the Research to Prevent Blindness Unrestricted Grant.  ...  However, inserting a tube into the PP requires complete PPV to prevent vitreous occlusion of the tube, necessitating the added cost and time for a vitreoretinal surgeon to be present.  ...

Neonatal Extremity Compartment Syndrome: A Rare Diagnosis Requiring Prompt Recognition

Nicholas T. Severyn, Kok Lim Kua
2020 American Journal of Perinatology Reports  
We report a case of upper extremity compartment syndrome from initial presentation until 3 months after discharge and discuss the importance of prompt diagnosis and timely surgical evaluation.  ...  Risk factors that predispose infants to a hypercoagulable state or trauma have been implicated, but the exact mechanisms remain poorly understood.  ...  The fact that the infant was not transferred until after 24 hours of life added further uncertainty as to whether a more timely surgical intervention would have resulted in a better outcome.  ...

Extra-neural Metastatic Potential of Primary Central Nervous System Malignancies

Ummey Hani, Syed Sarmad Bukhari, Muhammad Shahzad Shamim
2020 Zenodo  
Extraneural metastases of primary central nervous system malignancies are rare and challenging pathologies, with unknown metastatic mechanism and no consensus regarding the best treatment regimen.  ...  The authors suggested patients with intracranial HPC requiring permanent CSF diversion to be considered foremost for ETV over VPS placement, to minimize risk for ENM. 2 Stephens et al., reported the  ...  The authors highlighted the need for rigorous follow-up, including serial brain MRI, and prompt relevant examinations secondary to the occurrence of extracranial symptoms.  ...

The use of emoji to establish student wellbeing: does the image reflect the reality?

Jenny Callender, Pete Bridge, Flora Al-Samarraie, Daniel Blair
2022 Journal of Radiotherapy in Practice  
Capturing simple wellbeing responses from a cohort may facilitate the organisation of timely support interventions.  ...  Conclusions: The use of emoji for rapid assessment of cohort mental wellbeing is valid and potentially useful alongside more formal evaluation and support strategies.  ...  being 'Excited but nervous for placement' "having unmet expectations" 'feeling tired from a new routine' The tired emoji was unique in capturing the emotion succinctly with the text providing little added  ...

Impact of CardioMEMS device placement on lifestyle modifications: a "pseudo-placebo" effect beyond the expected?

Mahmoud Assaad, Robby Singh, Sinan Sarsam, Abbie Bowen, Marcel Zughaib
2018 Journal of International Medical Research  
Discussion: The CHAMPION trial showed numerous benefits for patients who underwent CardioMEMS device placement.  ...  In our study, we found that device placement also resulted in a "pseudo-placebo" effect with most patients making positive lifestyle modifications.  ...  The survey was conducted over the telephone and included questions about lifestyle changes after device placement, improvement in dyspnea, increased physical activity, improved diet, and changes in the  ...

Implementing Sponsored Search in Web Search Engines: Computational Evaluation of Alternative Mechanisms

Juan Feng, Hemant K. Bhargava, David M. Pennock
2007 INFORMS journal on computing  
The search engine can address initial inscience of relevance scores by modifying rank allocations over time as it observes clickthroughs at each rank.  ...  We model and compare several mechanisms for allocating sponsored slots, including stylized versions of those used by Overture and Google, the two biggest brokers of sponsored search.  ...  This approximation improves over time as the search engine gathers more data, hence the ranking produced by each mechanism needs to be revised over time until the steady-state solution is obtained.  ...

Exclusive Preferential Placement as Search Diversion: Evidence from Flight Search

Benjamin G. Edelman, Zhenyu Lai
2013 Social Science Research Network  
Applied to internet search engines, we investigate a diversion mechanism based on Google's exclusive award of preferential placement to its own services.  ...  Controlling for search intent, we find that Google's differential placement of Flight Search across similar search queries led to an 85% increase in click-through rates for paid advertising and a 65% decrease  ...  For example, in the relevant time period, a Google search for "flights to orlando" led to the exclusive preferential placement of GFS, but a Google search for "flights to orlando fl" did not.  ...
