Balance and its Clinical Assessment in Older Adults - A Review

Joseph O. Nnodim and Raymond L. Yung

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 02, 2015

Balance impairment is common among older adults and estimates of its prevalence range between 20 and 50%. In basic terms, loss of balance occurs when the center of mass (CoM) falls out of alignment with the base of support (BoS). With about two-thirds of body mass about two-thirds of body height above a relatively narrow BoS, human bipedal stance and gait are inherently low in stability. Further, ...

Terminal Care in Older Patients in Hospital: Development of a Quality Indicator Set and its First Application in a Retrospective Comparison of Patients Treated in an Acute Geriatric Unit and a Palliative Care Unit of a Belgian University Hospital

Annelies Cools, Delphine Vaneechoutte, Nele Van Den Noortgate, Karen Versluys, Martine De Laat, Mirko Petrovic and Ruth Piers

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 26, 2015

During the last decades, there has been growing interest in high quality end-of-life care for the geriatric patient. This can be explained by the aging of the population, which leads to an increased number of frail, older patients who die in hospitals as a result of one or more chronic condition(s). The quality of end-of-life care for the geriatric patient is not optimal, characterized by inadequa...

Elder Mistreatment and its Subtypes across Different Sociodemographic and Socioeconomic Groups among U.S. Chinese Community-Dwelling Older Adults

Ruijia Chen and Xin Qi Dong

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: August 26, 2015

EM was first identified by British gerontologists in 1975 using the term 'granny battering', but it is not until recently that researchers have rigorously examined the issue. Epidemiologic research documents that more than one in ten older adults suffered from some kinds of mistreatment in the U.S, making it one of the most significant public health and human rights issues. EM is likely to impose ...

The Close Relationship between Mucosal Healing and Prognoses of Inflammatory Bowel Disease may have just Reflected the Root Mechanism of the Disease

Xiaofa Qin

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: August 27, 2015

More and more studies have shown that mucosal healing on endoscopy has been the key prognostic parameter for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that predicts sustained clinical remission and resection-free survival of patients. It raised a big question as why the prognosis and long term remission of IBD are most strongly related to mucosal healing as judged by the appearance and integrate of the gut...

Expectations for Hepatitis B Universal Vaccination for Hepatitis B Virus Eradication

Toru Ishikawa

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 26, 2015

The incidence of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC has not declined for the past several decades. HBV is essentially a disease that could potentially be eradicated by a vaccine. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), two billion people (one-third of the global population) have been infected with HBV worldwide, and more than 240 million are chronic carriers (4-6% of the world populatio...

Safety and Efficacy of Remifentanil for Single Agent Procedural Sedation: A Systematic Review

Jeppe T Jensen, Peter Vilmann, Lars Konge and Moller

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 19, 2015

Hospitals and healthcare centers are continuously pushed to deliver a better quality of care with a higher turnover. Hence, there is an increasing demand for shorter procedures and shorter time to discharge. Some of these requirements can be met if sedation is used instead of general anesthesia. Furthermore, sedation, as an alternative to nothing, has its benefits. Two recent studies have shown th...

The Effects of High-Dose Sugammadex on Erythrocyte Deformability in Rats with Renal Failure Generated by Unilateral Ureteral Obstruction

Fusun Bozkirli, Fikriye Dogrul, Faruk Metin Comu, Hande Arpaci, Omer Bayrak, Mustafa Arslan and Yusuf unal

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 18, 2015

One of the most common causes of renal insufficiency in children and adults is obstructive nephropathy. Unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) is a well-known model to imitate the obstructive nephropathy process in a simple, accelerated and species-independent manner. Previous studies have revealed that morphological lesions in the obstructed kidney are peritubular capillaries rarefaction, tubular ...

Severe Musculoskeletal Injuries due to the use of Cleats Whilst Cycling

J Kukadia, G Zamfir, G Arealis, N Ashwood and B Karagkevrekis

Article Type: Case Series | First Published: September 4, 2015

In cycling, pedalling symmetry and foot position is paramount for an energy efficient and injury free ride. Traditionally a clipped pedal was used to secure the foot onto the pedal, which was found to be related to a number of overuse knee injuries, leading to the advent of clipless pedals or cleats, which allowed for a more efficient pedal stroke. Whilst there is some research behind cleat design...

Glyceryl Trinitrate Patches: A Modern Treatment for Tendinopathies

Yusuf Assem and Manit Arora

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: August 23, 2015

Tendinopathy encompasses a variety of conditions that develop within tendons in response to overuse, characterized by pain and dysfunction. These include disorders of the Achilles tendon, patellar tendon, lateral epicondyle, medial epicondyle and the rotator cuff. Historically, most of these disorders have been attributed to tendinitis or inflammation of the tendon, however recent histopathologica...

Doxycycline and Coenzyme Q10 Treatment Modalities for Chronic Periodontitis: A Preliminary Study

Mahmoud Darweesh, Hesham El-Sharkawy, Omar N Fadhil and Ola M Maria

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 13, 2015

Periodontal diseases are inflammatory disorders that affect 10-15% of the population worldwide and represent one of the major causes of tooth loss. Such diseases result from complex interactions between periodontal pathogens and the host immune response. Owing to the high prevalence, scientists have been attracted to research aimed to treat periodontal diseases; however, treatments are always chal...
