The authors tested the shifting standards model (M. Biernat, M. Manis, & T. E. Nelson, 1991) as it applies to sex- and race-based stereotyping of self and others in the military. U. S. Army officers attending a leadership training course made judgments of their own and their groupmates' leadership competence at 3 time points over a 9-week period. We(More)
The painful wrist as a result of an injury to the carpal bones, ligaments, or joint capsule often presents a diagnostic challenge to the physician. In those cases where a thorough clinical examination does not explain the cause of the patient's symptomatology, a systematic roentgenographic evaluation of the painful wrist may result in early diagnosis and(More)
Traumatic carpal instability can be difficult to detect and may present complicated management problems. Post-traumatic palmar carpal subluxation has been previously described only as a theoretical ligament instability. Such a condition implies disruption of the normal ligament attachments either within or around the carpus, or both, which very often(More)
There is currently limited evidence on the safety and efficacy of novel oral anticoagulants in patients with mechanical heart valves. This case report describes a patient with a St Jude aortic valve replacement who suffered valve thrombosis and an embolic stroke when anti-coagulated with the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran etexilate.
IMPORTANCE The prevalence and short-term outcomes of hypertensive urgency (systolic blood pressure ≥180 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥110 mm Hg) are unknown. Guidelines recommend achieving blood pressure control within 24 to 48 hours. However, some patients are referred to the emergency department (ED) or directly admitted to the hospital, and(More)
BACKGROUND Raltegravir (RAL) plus tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) is a recommended initial antiretroviral regimen. A substantial proportion of persons diagnosed with HIV infection and starting antiretrovirals in the U.S. are African-American (AA); however, the effects of this regimen on metabolic parameters have largely been studied in white patients.

A modification of the nasal septal technique for reconstruction of a large unilateral defect of the nose is presented that provides cartilaginous support of the nasal defect and mucosal lining. This is accomplished by rotation of the cartilaginous nasal septum and its contralateral mucosal lining into the nasal defect. Coverage with a nasolabial flap allows(More)
A case of subperiosteal abscess associated with acute sinusitis is reported. The case is remarkable in that anaerobic organisms played a major role in the pathologic process. In addition, the unusual superolateral position of the abscess in the absence of any defect in the bony sinus walls suggests the hematogenous spread of the sinus infection. The use of(More)
