    Title Staging, Evaluation, and Nonoperative Management of Renal Injuries.
    Date April 2006
    Journal The Urologic Clinics of North America
    Excerpt

    The kidney is the most commonly injured urologic organ and can sometimes be the most challenging to treat. Although most renal injuries may be treated successfully without operative intervention, it is important, and yet sometimes confusing, to delineate which cases should be managed with intervention and which may be observed. The common teaching that blunt renal injuries may be observed and penetrating injury must be explored may be true in most cases, but in select cases this dogma can be misleading and lead to poorer outcomes. The purpose of this article is to explain the important variables in the evaluation of renal trauma (clinical, radiologic, and sometimes surgical),how to stage renal trauma, and how to decide whether nonoperative or operative management is indicated.

    Title Diagnosis and Classification of Urethral Injuries.
    Date April 2006
    Journal The Urologic Clinics of North America
    Excerpt

    Urethral injuries are uncommon and rarely life-threatening in isolation. They are, how-ever, among the most devastating urinary system injuries because of significant long-term sequelae, including strictures, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and infertility.Urethral trauma may be categorized by mechanism of injury (ie, blunt versus penetrating injury) and by location (ie, posterior versus anterior urethra). Injuries to the posterior urethra are classically associated with pelvic fractures, while anterior urethral trauma usually arises secondary to injudicious instrumentation or perineal straddle injury. This article reviews the major etiologies and mechanisms of urethral trauma, describes how these injuries are diagnosed, and explains classifications of urethral trauma. Timely and accurate diagnosis and classification of urethral injuries leads to appropriate acute management and reduced long-term morbidity.

    Title Oral Health and Hiv.
    Date August 2004
    Journal Beta Bulletin of Experimental Treatments for Aids : a Publication of the San Francisco Aids Foundation
    Excerpt

    Most oral health problems can be found in people who are either HIV positive or negative. Yet there are some important differences. A few conditions are seen almost exclusively in people with HIV, while some that are found in both populations are more problematic for people with HIV, especially those with advanced disease. A diminished immune system can alter the course of oral disease and require more aggressive treatment to prevent minor troubles from escalating into major health problems. Over 30 different oral manifestations of HIV disease have been reported since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. This article will address several of the most common of these oral health issues. As with any health condition faced by HIV positive people, early identification and treatment should be emphasized. In many cases, referral to a dentist should be made as soon as possible.

    Title The John W. Knutson Distinguished Service Award in Dental Public Health--2002 Recipient Esther Colchamiro.
    Date September 2003
    Journal Journal of Public Health Dentistry
    Title Injury to the Genitourinary Tract and Functional Reconstruction of the Urethra.
    Date October 2001
    Journal Current Opinion in Urology
    Excerpt

    In the field of trauma and reconstruction, some aspects have changed significantly, whereas others continue to refine concepts that have developed over recent years. In urethral reconstruction, procedures are becoming more complex. The morbidity of the lithotomy position has been recognized for years. Recent literature has clarified the argument over the 'best stirrup', and time in lithotomy has been identified as a significant contributor to morbidity. Implantation of the AMS-800 sphincter has been examined in irradiated patients. The complication and revision rate is higher but not so high as to preclude consideration of its use. A number of articles have examined the use of cystoscopy in all cases of complicated pelvic surgery and in specific urethral suspension procedures. This has been recognized by urologists for years; it is a new concept in the gynecology literature. Cystoscopy continues to be routinely used, as many 'routine cases' when examined with cystoscopy are found to be associated with complications to the genitourinary tract. The non-operative management of renal trauma is expanded to select blunt grade 5 renal injuries. A series examined the use of computed tomography scan for bladder injuries and found it to be both sensitive and specific.

    Title Dependency of Detrusor Contractions on Calcium Sensitization and Calcium Entry Through Loe-908-sensitive Channels.
    Date October 2001
    Journal British Journal of Pharmacology
    Excerpt

    1. The subcellular mechanisms regulating stimulus-contraction coupling in detrusor remain to be determined. We used Ca(2+)-free solutions, Ca(2+) channel blockers, cyclopiazonic acid (CPA), and RhoA kinase (ROK) inhibitors to test the hypothesis that Ca(2+) influx and Ca(2+) sensitization play primary roles. 2. In rabbit detrusor, peak bethanechol (BE)-induced force was inhibited 90% by incubation for 3 min in a Ca(2+)-free solution. By comparison, a 20 min incubation of rabbit femoral artery in a Ca(2+)-free solution reduced receptor-induced force by only 5%. 3. In detrusor, inhibition of sarcoplasmic reticular (SR) Ca(2+) release by 2APB, or depletion of SR Ca(2+) by CPA, inhibited BE-induced force by only 27%. The CPA-insensitive force was abolished by LaCl3. By comparison, 2APB inhibited receptor-induced force in rabbit femoral artery by 71%. 4. In the presence of the non-selective cation channel (NSCC) inhibitor, LOE-908, BE did not produce an increase in [Ca(2+)]i but did produce weak increases in myosin phosphorylation and force. 5. Inhibitors of ROK-induced Ca(2+) sensitization, HA-1077 and Y-27632, inhibited BE-induced force by approximately 50%, and in combination with LOE-908, nearly abolished force. 6. These data suggest that two principal muscarinic receptor-stimulated detrusor contractile mechanisms include NSCC activation, that elevates [Ca(2+)]i and ROK activation, that sensitizes cross bridges to Ca(2+).

    Title Dental Decay Rates Among Children of Migrant Workers in Yakima, Wa.
    Date November 1990
    Journal Public Health Reports (washington, D.c. : 1974)
    Excerpt

    The literature documents a significant decline in the prevalence of dental caries among children. Unfortunately, dental decay rates of children of migrant workers remain high. This study collected data from 885 migrant children in central Washington. This community is in the west coast migrant stream. The area is served by a health center funded through the community and migrant health center program. There is an active dental program provided through the health center. The children were found to have a high rate of dental decay. However, there was a high rate of treatment of this decay and a rate of sealants (a preventive measure) nearly three times the rate in the general population. Although dental decay remains a serious problem in the migrant community, the migrant health centers appear to be making a positive impact on the dental health of the children.

    Date April 1989
    Journal Journal of the American Dental Association (1939)
    Excerpt

    A case of rapidly progressive periodontal disease associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is presented. Rapid horizontal bone loss, with only moderate inflammation, occurred during a 13-month period. Pocket depth was significantly less than anticipated, given the degree of bone loss. The patient had no signs or symptoms of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The cause, features, diagnosis, and management are discussed.

    Title Counseling Principles for More Effective Patient Education.
    Date October 1986
    Journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology
    Excerpt

    Patients often fail to progress in preventive dentistry behavior. Greater success will be realized if the dentist uses a counseling approach based on basic theoretical principles of psychological counseling. Humanistic and behavioral counseling theories are adaptable to the dental environment. An approach modeled on the exploration, understanding, and action phases of counseling is practicable for the clinical dentist.

    Title Oral Cancer Detection. The Importance of Routine Screening for Prolongation of Survival.
    Date September 1986
    Journal Postgraduate Medicine
    Excerpt

    The incidence of oral cancer has increased in the past ten years. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to long-term survival; however, patients at highest risk visit the dentist infrequently. The reddish, velvety or erythroplakial lesion at the base of the tongue or floor of the mouth is highly suspicious in any patient and requires further evaluation. High-risk patients with less suspicious appearing lesions must be reevaluated on close recall. Prognosis improves vastly when the lesion is detected and treated early. One study demonstrated a 64% five-year survival rate for patients with oral cancer that was diagnosed before regional lymph node involvement versus a 15% five-year survival for patients whose lesions were diagnosed after regional lymph node involvement. By including an oral cancer examination in routine physical examination of patients, the physician and public health nurse can increase the likelihood of early detection of oral cancer.

    Title Dental Treatment During Pregnancy: a Preventive Approach.
    Date July 1985
    Journal Journal of the American Dental Association (1939)
    Excerpt

    Applying the basics of preventive dentistry at the primary level will broaden the scope of prenatal care. Dentists should encourage all patients of childbearing age to seek oral health counseling and examination as soon as they learn they are pregnant. Specific printed information on pre- and postnatal fluoride, plaque control, nutrition, and tooth development should be available for pregnant patients. Recall systems should allow for pregnant patients. Emergency problems should not be deferred for treatment in the second trimester but should be alleviated immediately. Indicated medications should not be withheld because of pregnancy but patients must be informed of benefits and risks. Consultation with the patient's physician is always appropriate.

    Title The Effects of Denturism on Denture Prices.
    Date June 1985
    Journal American Journal of Public Health
    Excerpt

    In 1978, the country's first denturism initiative was passed in Oregon, legalizing the independent construction of dentures by non-dentists. The major campaign issue was the effect denturism would have on the cost of dentures. A review of Oregon dental insurance data shows that the costs of dentures, which had been rising at the same rate as other dental services, had a much lower rate of increase after passage of the denturism initiative.

    Title Network Capitation Practices: a New Concept.
    Date May 1981
    Journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology
    Excerpt

    The percentage of consumers in the U. S. covered by dental insurance has increased dramatically over the last 10 years. As dental insurance grows, it is becoming increasingly important to examine the context of dental care payment systems. At present, almost all insurance programs are geared toward the fee-for-service system, which reimburses dentists a fixed sum for each type of procedure. The exceptions to fee-for-service dental insurance plans are few. A capitation program for dental care, which reimburses dentists a fixed amount per enrolled patient regardless of services rendered, offers many advantages for both consumers and providers and should be available as an option. Network capitation represents a new approach to the payment of dental care. A network capitation program is being developed in the United States and will use an approach involving two contracts, one which will be used with an insurance company, and the second with a network of private practitioners. The insurance company will supply dental practices with dental patients and funds on a capitation basis. Patients will be given the choice of fee-for-service or capitation. Network capitation allows fee-for-service solo or group practitioners to incorporate capitation patients into their practice.

    Title Professional Encroachment: a Comparison of the Emergence of Denturists in Canada and Oregon.
    Date July 1980
    Journal American Journal of Public Health
    Excerpt

    In 1978, supporters of denturism in Oregon succeeded in passing an initiative which allows denturists to provide dentures directly to the public. The steps which led to the referendum included three unsuccessful attempts to have the state legislature enact a law legalizing denturism. After capturing broad-based consumer support, the issue was placed on the ballot and passed by an overwhelming margin. Both the denturists and the dentists in Oregon adopted strategies similar to those used in Canada over 20 years ago when the issue was raised in a number of provinces. As was the case in Canada, the denturists prevailed. Denturists stressed the price differential and the issue of freedom of choice. Dentists stressed health and safety issues. The public perceived the dentists' campaign as negative and self-serving. This perception may have contributed to the election results. In order to avoid this tarnished image, dentists must anticipate the public's needs, and formulate strategies to meet such needs.

    Title Effect of Long-term Addiction to Heroin on Oral Tissues.
    Date July 1975
    Journal Journal of Public Health Dentistry
    Excerpt

    The oral health status of 36 long-term heroin addicts was measured using DMF, OHIS, and PI. Comparisons were made utilizing data from the National Center for Health Statistics. Age, sex, race, education, income, and geographic location were compared. The former addicts exhibited a significant increase in DMF, with significantly higher missing and decayed teeth, and fewer filled teeth. The periodontal condition of the former addict also showed health status. It would appear that long-term heroin addiction either contributes directly to lowered oral health status, or more likely, causes individuals to lead a life style which has ramifications to their oral health.
