International electives in neurological surgery training: a survey of program directors from Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved neurological surgery programs.

The burden of neurosurgical disease in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) has emerged as a significant factor in global health. Additionally, calls have been growing for first-world neurosurgeons to find ways to help address the international need. Allowing residents to pursue international elective opportunities in LMICs can help alleviate the burden while also providing unique educational opportunities. However, pursuing international work while in residency requires overcoming significant logistical and regulatory barriers. To better understand the general perspectives, perceived barriers, and current availability of international rotations, a survey was sent out to program directors at Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved residencies.

Self-reported symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection in a non-hospitalized population: results from the large Italian web-based EPICOVID19 cross-sectional survey.

Understanding the occurrence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2)-like symptoms in a large non-hospitalized population, when the epidemic peak was occurring in Italy, is of paramount importance but data are scarce.

The interaction between personality and health policy: Empirical evidence from the UK smoking bans.

We investigate whether responses to the UK public places smoking ban depend on personality. Drawing on individual level panel data from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) we exploit variation in the timing and location of these bans to establish their overall effect on smoking outcomes, and how this differs by personality. We measure personality using the Big Five personality traits. We are particularly interested in conscientiousness, given the evidence that it is a good proxy for self-control. Overall, we find that a one standard deviation increase in conscientiousness leads to a 1.4 percentage point reduction in the probability of smoking after the ban. Notably, this is the only Big Five personality trait that interacts with the smoking ban. This finding is very robust to different specifications.

The Relationship Between Shoulder Range of Motion and Elbow Stress in College Pitchers.

College pitchers with increased external rotation gain (ERG) produce increased medial elbow torque (elbow stress), while those with reduced total rotational range of motion (TROM) have reduced medial elbow torque, during pitching.

Improvements in Sexual Function Following Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair.

Three-fourths of Americans are sexually active and studies show a correlation between sexual activity and good health. Rotator cuff tears and subsequent repairs can cause significant disruption in daily living including sexual activity. Orthopedic surgeons rarely discuss sexual activity with patients. Therefore, patients have little information about expectations, restrictions, and return to sexual activity. The primary goal of this study is to evaluate patient improvement in sexual activity following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and evaluate factors that affect sexual activity.

Commentary: The pursuit of the Unicorn Continues!

The pursuit for an ideal tissue valve has been ongoing for decades. Any prosthetic valve, in an ideal world, should function like a native tissue valve and possess all the desirable characteristics such as durability, nonthrombotic, noninflammatory, competent, easier to implant and inexpensive [1]. It is apparent that no such valve exists as we have numerous options to choose from. In this issue of the Journal, Spigel and colleageus [1] review their experience with the St. Jude Epic Supra Bioprosthesis valve in the pulmonary position in 79 patients aged 11 to 41 years (median, 18.5 years) and concluded that the Epic Supra valve was an acceptable alternative for pulmonary valve replacement. However, there are some concerns with the use of this bioprosthesis. Valve dysfunction (as defined by moderate or severe pulmonary regurgitation, peak velocity greater than 3.5 m/s, or valve replacement for any reason) occurred in a quarter of these patients at a median of 2 years. In addition, with a median follow-up of less than 3 years with only 24 patients followed to 5 years or more (an 8% replacement rate), the manuscript really looks at early results of this bioprosthetic valve. However, as the authors point out, this is not so different than the current literature on bioprosthetic valves in the pulmonary position [3, 4], which we found quite disheartening. Since congenital heart surgeons do not often follow their patients longitudinally, this came as a surprise. After doing a quick survey of 6 congenital heart surgeons, I am not sure that many of us our telling our patients that the bioprosthetic pulmonary valve we are placing has about a 25% chance of failing in 2 years. There needs to be a drive for improvement, especially when one considers the longevity of the patient. Modern materials should help enhance durability, newer innovative designs, alternative methods of implantation, interaction between surgical/transcatheter valves may yield improved results. We need to be persistent until that unicorn is found.

[Modern standards for magnetic resonance imaging of the brain tumors].

Neuroimaging is essential in survey of patients with brain tumors. An important objectives of neuroimaging are highly reliable non-invasive diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of treatment outcomes. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the modern neuroimaging methods. This technique ensures analysis of structural cerebral changes, vascular and metabolic characteristics of brain tumors. It is necessary to standardize imaging parameters and unify protocols and methods considering a widespread use of MRI for brain tumors. In our practice, we use our own experience, world literature data and evidence-based international guidelines on the diagnosis of various brain diseases. The purpose of this review is to study the modern principles of magnetic resonance imaging in adults with brain tumors in neurosurgical practice.
