B Learning Objectives: b There is scant data comparing Prothrombin Complex Concentrate (PCC) to Vitamin K/Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) in trauma patients. Patients that received PCC (PCC group) were compared to those who received Vitamin K/FFP (FFP…

A 44 y/o woman with PNH and aplastic anemia presented with 5 months of progressive painful purpuric nodules. Examination revealed firm, pink to purple, tender nodules in her lower and upper extremities and trunk. Biopsy revealed an edematous dermis,…

INTRODUCTION: Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma accounting for 2.5% of lymphoid neoplasms in the United States. Primary gastrointestinal (GI) lymphomas account for 1-4% of all GI malignancies, with few reports of primary mantle…

Objective Strain ratio (SR) is a semiquantitative parameter in differentiating benign from malignant tumors in breast ultrasound elastography. Currently, SR is computed manually and, thus, user dependent. The objective of this study was to evaluate…

The cetacean visual system is a product of selection pressures favoring underwater vision, yet relatively little is known about it across taxa. Previous studies report several mutations in the opsin genetic sequence in cetaceans, suggesting the …

Few studies exist of the bowhead whale brain and virtually nothing is known about its cortical cytoarchitecture or how it compares to other cetaceans. Bowhead whales are one of the least encephalized cetaceans and occupy a basal phylogenetic position…

We aimed to acquaint the reader with a medieval physician, Amirdovlat Amasiatsi, who lived and practiced in the 15th century Anatolia. Amirdovlat wrote several books on medicine mainly focusing on phytotherapy and pharmacology using medicinal plants,…

The objective of this study is to describe how screen-preventable loss of life (screen-PLL) can be used to analyze the distribution of life savings with mammographic screening. The determination of screen-PLL with mammography is possible using a…

Background: We aimed to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of resident physicians regarding sepsis in general and the Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines in particular. Methods: After institutional review board approval, we surveyed…

PURPOSE: To investigate whether clinical competency committees (CCCs) were consistent in applying milestone ratings for first-year residents over time or whether ratings increased or decreased. METHOD: Beginning in December 2013, the ACGME initiated…

BACKGROUND: The lake deposits of the informal Ruby Paper Shale unit, part of the Renova Formation of Montana, have yielded abundant plant fossils that document Late Eocene - Early Oligocene global cooling in western North America. A nearly complete…

Located in the midbrain, the inferior colliculus (IC) is the hub of the central auditory system. Although the IC plays important roles in speech processing, sound localization, and other auditory computations, the organization of the IC…

Trafficking protein particle complex 9 (TRAPPC9) is a major subunit of the TRAPPII complex. TRAPPC9 has been reported to bind nuclear factor κB kinase subunit β (IKKβ) and NF-kB-inducing kinase (NIK) where it plays a role in the canonical and…

Poster Presentation at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Delirium Society
--
Objective: Assessment of delirium outside of the hospital setting is currently limited, as clinical assessments for delirium require a face-to-face encounter. This…

The number of refugees and asylum seekers throughout the world continues to increase, leading to increasing challenges in meeting healthcare needs of these individuals. Women's antenatal health is of particular concern due to their vulnerability to…

Meeting abstract D99 presented at the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American-Geriatrics-Society (AGS)

PURPOSE: Transposable elements are known to remodel gene structure and provide a known source of genetic variation. Retrotransposon gag-like-3 (RTL3) is a mammalian retrotransposon-derived transcript (MART) whose function in the skeletal tissue is …

Introduction: Greater demand for noninvasive techniques to reduce cellulite and contour the body has led to the growth of electromagnetic and radiofrequency devices. In this study, we aimed to characterize the evolution and safety of electromagnetic…

BACKGROUND: Few studies exist examining the frequency of primary headache in children with celiac disease and the impact of a gluten-free diet on primary headache symptomology. This study explores characteristics and frequency of headaches in…

Fusobacterium species is known for being a causative agent for Lemierre's syndrome, which is characterized by thrombophlebitis of the jugular vein. However, Fusobacterium species causing Lemierre's variant gastrointestinal syndrome has only been…

Objective: To review the currently available data on the use of ketamine in the treatment of depression among older adults from randomized controlled studies.; Design: Randomized controlled trials.; Setting: Variable.; Participants: 60 years and…

The present study examined the career construction theory (CCT) model of adaptation using a sample of working adults diagnosed with Chiari malformation. Specifically, we tested a mediation model in which adaptivity (i.e., proactivity, openness, and…
