    Title The Indications and Technique of Supramalleolar Osteotomy.
    Date December 2009
    Journal Foot and Ankle Clinics

    The supramalleolar osteotomy is a commonly used surgical procedure to correct congenital or acquired deformities of the distal tibia, ankle, or foot. In children, osteotomy has been used to correct malunion of fractures, physeal growth arrest, tibial torsion, paralytic deformities, and sequelae of a clubfoot.

    Title Emotion, Motivation, and Text Comprehension: the Detection of Contradictions in Passages.
    Date July 1997
    Journal Journal of Experimental Psychology. General

    The authors investigated the effects of experimentally induced mood states on the identification of contradictions in text passages and ratings of comprehension in 3 experiments. Mood impaired comprehension in college students across a variety of passages, as evidenced by a depressive impairment in contradiction identification and an increased number of false identifications among depressed participants. Additionally, depressed individuals were less accurate in their judgments of passage difficulty. These findings are consistent with the resource allocation model of mood effects, which attributes impaired comprehension to the activation of intrusive, irrelevant thoughts during reading of the passage. It is further argued that these results cannot be explained simply by a deficit in motivation of the depressed participants.

    Title Improvement in 'stat' Laboratory Turnaround Time. A Model Continuous Quality Improvement Project.
    Date May 1992
    Journal Archives of Internal Medicine

    BACKGROUND--Continuous quality improvement is being advocated as the process that, if adopted, would improve the efficiency, productiveness, and quality of medical institutions, thereby helping to solve the health care crisis our country is facing. To determine if these techniques could be effective in a tertiary-care multispecialty group practice, a model project was undertaken. The model project chosen was to determine if we could improve the turnaround time for "stat" laboratory examinations performed in our large outpatient facility. METHODS--A 10-member team consisting of everyone involved in the process of laboratory testing was empowered to evaluate the present process and make appropriate changes. With traditional techniques of quality improvement, the process was assessed, data were collected and statistically analyzed, changes were introduced, and data were recollected and analyzed. RESULTS--After intervention, the preanalytic delays were reduced by 76% and the postanalytic delays by 88%. Waiting time for patients was reduced by an average of 62%. By instituting the changes suggested, the institution saved $225,000 on a one-time basis and $40,000 to $50,000 on a recurring basis. CONCLUSION--Adoption of quality improvement techniques appears to be a desirable management paradigm that should be explored by all medical institutions interested in maximizing the quality of care offered while at the same time minimizing its cost.
