Details

Advances in Health and Disease. Volume 19 begins by exploring differential diagnosis, a compilation of diagnostic possibilities, typically through the medium of evaluation of the prior probability of a specific diagnosis, given a particular test result (so-called Bayesian analysis).

The authors discuss corticosteroids which have become indispensable in the treatment of a number of dermatological conditions. The advancement of newer steroid molecules with their vast anti-inflammatory, anti-mitotic, immunosuppressive and vasoconstrictive actions has completely changed dermatology.

This compilation also addresses angiogenesis or neovascularization,the physiological process involving the sprouting of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. These processes are vital for tissue development and wound healing in damaged tissues.

Bovine mastitis in India in India is studied, particularly the diagnostic techniques used for the rapid detection of microorganisms from bovine mastitic milk.

This collection covers some issues related to the acetabulum, such as the treatment of acetabular fractures which affect the anterior column, the modified Stoppa technique in acetabular fractures, and the surgical treatment of displaced acetabular fractures with a pararectus approach.

In addition, some issues related to the shoulder are discussed, such as the evaluation of rotator cuff tears, approaches for shoulder instability, subacromial impingement syndrome, superior labrum anterior posterior lesions, and frozen shoulder.

Diaphyseal clavicle fractures, distal clavicle fractures and acromioclavicular joint dislocation, scapular neck and body fractures, glenoid fractures, and other relevant issues are also discussed.

The penultimate chapter focuses on matters pertaining to the humerus, such as: the non-operative treatment of proximal humerus fractures, internal fixation in proximal humerus fractures, hemiarthroplasty in proximal humerus fractures, and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty in proximal humerus fractures.

In closing, using a phenomenological design, the researchers explore the experience of suffering as voiced by male and female patients six to twelve months after hospitalization for blunt trauma.
