Sleep-Related Painful Erections Following Sexual Intercourse.

Arch Sex Behav. 2017 Dec 08;:

Authors: Barnhoorn PC, Gianotten WL, van Driel MF

Abstract
Sleep-related painful erections (SRPE) is a rare disorder characterized by recurrent painful nocturnal erections during REM sleep in the absence of pain during daytime erections. Approximately 35 cases of SRPE have been reported in the literature, none of them associated with preceding sexual intercourse. We add the report of a 40-year-old patient with a 6-year history of SRPE which only, but always, occurred after sexual intercourse with ejaculation in the evening before. As a result, the frequency of intercourse diminished, causing relationship problems. A non-pharmacological solution was found in shifting the time of sexual intercourse. The patient refused any proposed pharmacological treatment, because of “not wanting to be a patient at his age.”

Supplementation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) affects temporal, but not spatial visual attention.

Brain Cogn. 2017 Dec 06;120:8-16

Authors: Leonte A, Colzato LS, Steenbergen L, Hommel B, Akyürek EG

Abstract
In a randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled experiment, the acute effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) supplementation on temporal and spatial attention in young healthy adults were investigated. A hybrid two-target rapid serial visual presentation task was used to measure temporal attention and integration. Additionally, a visual search task was used to measure the speed and accuracy of spatial attention. While temporal attention depends primarily on the distribution of limited attentional resources across time, spatial attention represents the engagement and disengagement by relevant and irrelevant stimuli across the visual field. Although spatial attention was unaffected by GABA supplementation altogether, we found evidence supporting improved performance in the temporal attention task. The attentional blink was numerically, albeit not significantly, attenuated at Lag 3, and significantly fewer order errors were committed at Lag 1, compared to the placebo condition. No effect was found on temporal integration rates. Although there is controversy about whether oral GABA can cross the blood-brain barrier, our results offer preliminary evidence that GABA intake might help to distribute limited attentional resources more efficiently, and can specifically improve the identification and ordering of visual events that occur in close temporal succession.

Resource utilization in lung cancer diagnostic procedures: Current use and budget consequences.

Resource utilization in lung cancer diagnostic procedures: Current use and budget consequences.

PLoS One. 2017;12(12):e0189251

Authors: Brinkhof S, Groen HJM, Siesling SS, IJzerman MJ

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: The main objective of this study is to determine the current use of lung cancer diagnostic procedures in two large hospitals in the Netherlands, to explore deviations in guideline adherence between the hospitals, and to estimate the budget impact of the diagnostic work-up as well as the over- and underutilization.
MATERIALS & METHODS: A state transition model for the diagnostic pathway for lung cancer patients was developed using existing clinical practice guidelines (CPG) combined with a systematic literature. In addition to the CPGs depicting current practice, diagnostic utilization was gathered in two large hospitals representing an academic tertiary care hospital and a large regional teaching hospital for patients, who were selected from the Netherlands cancer registry.
RESULTS: The total population consisted of 376 patients with lung cancer. Not in all cases the guideline was followed, for instance in the usage of MR brain with stage III lung cancer patients (n = 70). The state-transition model predicts an average budget impact for the diagnostic pathway per patient estimated of € 2496 in the academic tertiary care hospital and € 2191 in the large regional teaching hospital.
CONCLUSION: The adherence to the CPG’s differed between hospitals, which questions the adherence to CPG’s in general. Adherence to CPG’s could lead to less costs in the diagnostic pathway for lung cancer patients.

Shoulder complaints in wheelchair athletes: A systematic review.

PLoS One. 2017;12(11):e0188410

Authors: Heyward OW, Vegter RJK, de Groot S, van der Woude LHV

Abstract
BACKGROUND: In recent years the popularity of disabled sports and competition among disabled athletes has grown considerably. With this rise in exposure of, and participation in wheelchair sports comes an increase in related stressors, including musculoskeletal load. External mechanical loading may increase the risk of shoulder complaints. The objective of this literature review was to 1) identify and describe the prevalence and/or incidence of shoulder complaints in wheelchair athletes in the literature, to 2) examine the factors and underlying mechanisms that could be potentially involved, and 3) provide some insights into the development of preventative measures.
METHODS: A literature search was conducted using PubMed, Scopus and Embase databases, to identify relevant published articles. All articles in the English language that contained any type of shoulder complaint in relation with a wheelchair sports player, at any level of status (recreational to elite), of any sport, were included. Articles were excluded if they did not include any statistical analysis. Articles that included studies with wheelchair athletes in combination with athletes of other disability sports were excluded in order to be able to differentiate between the two. Narrative, exploratory and case studies were also excluded. Two reviewers independently assessed articles for inclusion. Thirteen articles matched the selection criteria. These were judged on their quality by use of an adapted version of the Webster checklist.
RESULTS: Of the included studies the overall quality was low. A relatively high prevalence of complaints was found, ranging from 16% to 76%. Pain was found to be a common complaint in wheelchair athletes. Based on the current literature the cause of shoulder problems is difficult to identify and is likely multifactorial, nevertheless characteristics of the user (i.e. increased years of disability, age and BMI) were shown to increase risk. Preventative measures were indistinct. There may be a role for balanced strength training regimens to decrease risk.
CONCLUSION: Shoulder complaints in wheelchair athletes are a common problem that must be addressed further. Future studies on shoulder overuse injuries of wheelchair athletes should be directed towards biomechanical modeling to develop knowledge of load and its effects.
