PURPOSE To provide a qualitative assessment of those tensive issues that warrant ongoing consideration by physicians (MDs) and advanced practice nurses (APNs) currently working in professional pairings on an interdisciplinary healthcare team. DATA SOURCES Verbatim transcripts of semistructured interviews from five MDs and eight APNs. Questions related to(More)
OBJECTIVE To present a single center experience of a standardized prenatal multidisciplinary management protocol for fetal lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) and to propose a classification of fetal LUTO based on disease severity. METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of 25 consecutive fetal patients with prenatal diagnosis of primary LUTO.(More)
PURPOSE Benign familial infantile convulsions (BFIC) is a form of idiopathic epilepsy. It is characterized by clusters of afebrile seizures occurring around the sixth month of life. The disease has a benign course with a normal development and rare seizures in adulthood. Previous linkage analyses defined three susceptibility loci on chromosomes(More)
Bioavailability of zinc from diets prepared from intrinsically and extrinsically labeled autoclaved, defatted soy flour and scrambled, freeze-dried egg was investigated in male rats marginally depleted in zinc. In one study, retention of zinc from intrinsically labeled soybean flour (73%) was significantly less than from 65ZnCl2 extrinsically added to a soy(More)
AIM The purpose of the study was to review cases of serious fireworks-related eye injuries presented in the Strasbourg (France) University Hospital ophthalmology emergency department and to analyze epidemiological and clinical data such as visual outcomes and risk factors. METHOD A 13-year retrospective study (1994-2007) including fireworks-related ocular(More)
BACKGROUND Fetal alcohol syndrome is quite common in our region (incidence: 1/700 live births). It usually associates facial dysmorphism, intra-uterine growth retardation and mental delay. CASE REPORT Jonathan, born to an alcoholic mother, presented a typical dysmorphy of fetal alcohol syndrome and a low inserted umbilicus. A small bowel atresia was(More)
INTRODUCTION The correlation between intraocular pressure (IOP) and age is poorly studied in children. Thus, the aims of our work are to determine the IOP and central corneal thickness (CCT) standards in children from 0 to 10 years of age and to examine the possible relationship between IOP, CCT and age. METHODS Three hundred and twenty eyes of 160(More)
PURPOSE To investigate how advanced practice nurses (APNs) and physicians (MDs) within a multisite nursing home practice perceive and describe their experiences of collaboration in an interdisciplinary team. DATA SOURCES A phenomenological analysis of in-depth interviews of eight APNs and five MDs working in team practice across multiple nursing homes. (More)
Eyeglass lenses are commonly composed of allyl-diglycol carbonate (CR-39), an alpha-particle detecting plastic, thus making such lenses personal radon dosemeters. Samples of such lenses have been obtained, etched to reveal that radon and radon progeny alpha tracks can be seen in abundance, and sensitivities have been calibrated in radon chambers as a(More)
