BACKGROUND: Congenital rib abnormalities are found in approximately 2% of the general population.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed imaging examinations performed over a period of 2 years (2014-2015), enabling us to identify isolated rib abnormalities in 6 adult patients. RESULTS: The case series consisted in 3 cases with bilateral cervical ribs and 1 case each with bifid rib, costal fusion and rib pseudarthrosis...

The question about less asymmetrical positions in the healthcare professional-patient relationship is, for example, being addressed by the increased emphasis on person-centred care, promoted in disciplines such as medicine and nursing. Partnership is considered as a key component in person-centred care. Although the previous studies have addressed the attributes inherent in partnership, there is still potential for further discussion on how the various interpretations of partnership influence their use in healthcare literature...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of residual pain, outcomes, and the revision rate of arthroscopic proximal biceps tenodesis high in the groove at the articular margin of the humeral head by interference screw fixation. METHODS: Seven surgeons pooled data on patients who underwent an arthroscopic biceps tenodesis at the articular margin by interference screw fixation. All patients had a minimum of 50 weeks' follow-up. Preoperative and postoperative patient data including visual analog scale scores (obtained by all surgeons), objective shoulder scores (Simple Shoulder Test and University of California, Los Angeles scores obtained by 2 and 4 surgeons, respectively), and need for revision surgery (obtained by all surgeons) were retrospectively analyzed, the results are reported, and statistical analysis was performed...

Aging is associated with polymorbidity and polypharmacy. In the absence of a consensual definition, polypharmacy has been defined according to the number of drugs that an individual takes or to the presence of the risk of at least one severe drug interaction. In older cancer patients, polypharmacy is at least as common as it is in individuals of the same age without cancer. The management of cancer itself may result in the addition of more medications to counteract the adverse effects of antineoplastic treatment...

It is represented by important changes that appear in one's perception of himself and the significant other. Dyadic adjustment can be measured by a series of parameters--couple's satisfaction, couple's consensus, couple's cohesion and expressing emotions...

The purposes of this study were to assess (a) the critically ill patient's and critical care nurse's identification and perception of special care needs and (b) the relationship between the patient's and nurse's perception of the identified special care needs. A qualitative approach, using linked data and open-ended surveys, was used to identify common themes and patterns in data. Data collection took place over a 2-month period at a metropolitan research hospital in the Southeast. Common themes and patterns of identified special care needs were recognized across data and with linked data between the patient and nurse...
