OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that a standardized multidisciplinary treatment approach in patients with morbidly adherent placenta, which includes accreta, increta, and percreta, is associated with less maternal morbidity than when such an approach is not used (nonmultidisciplinary approach). STUDY DESIGN A retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND Restoration of control of dynamic scapular motion by specific activation of the serratus anterior and lower trapezius muscles is an important part of functional rehabilitation. This study evaluated activation of those muscles in specific exercises. HYPOTHESIS Specific exercises will activate key scapular-stabilizing muscles in clinically(More)

BACKGROUND Laparoscopy is the most common procedure for minimally invasive intraabdominal surveys. Patients with pulmonary hypertension (PHTN) may need an alternate approach because the systemic absorption of carbon dioxide may lead to hypercapnia, acidemia, and increases in systemic and pulmonary pressures. We report a case of intraabdominal survey using a(More)
