New evidence continues to drive the evolution of guideline recommendations for the medical management of patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Study finds identifiable risk factors ED staff can use for evaluation, avoiding over 100,000 unnecessary scans annually.
A new study in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP), published by Elsevier, reports that bullying victimization may increase the risk of suicide attempts among young adolescents by approximately 3-times worldwide.
Nanotechnology developed at Rutgers University-New Brunswick could boost research on stem cell transplantation, which may help people with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, other neurodegenerative diseases and central nervous system injuries.
Ultrasound is a non-invasive and relatively inexpensive means of diagnosing a number of medical conditions. This review presents an analysis of the diagnostic value of ultrasound to draw comparison between different types of arthritic conditions.
An arm in a sling cures a shoulder fracture just as well as an operation with plates and screws. This is shown by a comprehensive study from Aarhus University in Denmark which forms part of a Nordic research collaboration.
The American College of Physicians (ACP) and the nation's leading physician and public health organizations called for policies to reduce firearms-related injuries and deaths in the US in a new call-to-action, 'Firearm-Related Injury and Death in the United States: A Call to Action from the Nation's Leading Physician and Public Health Professional Organizations,' published today in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
The heart cannot regenerate muscle after a heart attack, and this can lead to lethal heart failure. Researchers have tried to aid the failing heart by injecting heart muscle cells grown in vitro, but engraftment rates are low. A new and simple method to improve the quality of the delivered cells has now been tested in a mouse heart attack model, and it doubled the engraftment rate of the injected stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes.
Opioid use at the three-month follow-up in emergency department patients discharged with an opioid prescription for acute pain is relatively low and not necessarily synonymous with opioid misuse.
A new study by Western University demonstrates that the fear predators inspire can leave long-lasting traces in the neural circuitry of wild animals and induce enduringly fearful behaviour, comparable to effects seen in PTSD research.
