Faecal incontinence in adults: management | Guidance and guidelines | NICE

Faecal incontinence is a sign or a symptom, not a diagnosis. Therefore, it is important to diagnose the cause or causes for each individual. Because it is a stigmatising condition, active case-finding will often be needed, probably best targeted at high-risk groups.

Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes: Diagnosis and Management - American Family Physician

Preterm premature rupture of membranes is the rupture of membranes during pregnancy before 37 weeks' gestation. It occurs in 3 percent of pregnancies and is the cause of approximately one third of preterm deliveries. It can lead to significant perinatal morbidity, including respiratory distress syndrome, neonatal sepsis, umbilical cord prolapse, placental abruption, and fetal death. Appropriate evaluation and management are important for improving neonatal outcomes. Speculum examination to determine cervical dilation is preferred because digital examination is associated with a decreased latent period and with the potential for adverse sequelae. Treatment varies depending on gestational age and includes consideration of delivery when rupture of membranes occurs at or after 34 weeks' gestation. Corticosteroids can reduce many neonatal complications, particularly intraventricular hemorrhage and respiratory distress syndrome, and antibiotics are effective for increasing the latency period.

Is 'Teeth-in-a-Day' for you?

<p>Many current advertisements promise patients 'Teeth-in-a-Day' or 'Teeth-in-an-Hour', offering to replace decayed, infected, or missing teeth with implants and even deliver teeth, all on the same day. While this is a possible treatment option, it is not for everyone. There are a number of limitations and the success depends on proper patient selection, diagnosis, and communication between the surgeon and the restoring dentist. This video discusses immediate implants and immediate teeth and when they may be considered and when they should be avoided.</p>

Why is invasive aspergillosis such a difficult disease to diagnose and treat? by Marta Stanzani

Dr Stanzani explains that fungal cells are very similar to human cells, and that drugs which are toxic to fungals cells may have the same effect on human cells. Mortality in invasive aspergillosis depends largely on the timing of the intervention, timely diagnosis and the state of the patient’s defences – treatment is much more effective when people have an intact immune system.
