  • A Carpentier annuloplasty ring was sutured. With the ring in position, the chordae were retrieved from the ventricle, and both needles were woven into the prolapsing segment, straddling the point of maximal prolapse. Two or three bites were taken through the coaptation surface to the line of coaptation. The two arms of the suture were tied on the atrial surface with a slip-knot to bring the leaflet to the annular plane, and a clip was placed across the knot. Pericardial pledgets could be used if the leaflet tissue seems fragile.

These indicators include the highest number of HIV-positive women and the highest infant, maternal, and HIV-related death rates worldwide. The ability of a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body and her reproductive life are key to improving these indicators.

  • One likely reason for the lack of attention to the older population is that fertility in Cambodia has remained high and thus the share of the population who are age 60 and over is relatively small, especially compared to a number of other southeast Asian countries where population aging is far more rapid. According to the most recent UN assessment, only 5.6 percent of the Cambodian population is aged 60 and over although it is projected to slowly increase in the coming decades (United Nations 2005).

  • We have recently completed a thorough review of the published literature of RCT evidence for BMJ Clinical Evidence (Barry et al 2012). In preparing this review for Clinical Evidence of the clinical trial literature for interventions for schizophrenia, a comprehensive search strategy identified all relevant publications, and those studies meeting reasonable quality standards were then included as described. Despite such a careful triage process, that aimed to include only good quality RCTs, it is clear that many studies we included have serious failings.

  • The first issue that we investigate is the effect of aging on the prices of assets, in particular stocks. The motivation for this line of research is the large discussion, both within the academic community and in popular media, about the role of the baby boom generation in driving the remarkable growth of stock prices over the last decade. To give an example of this sort of analysis, The New York Times wrote (Jan 5, 1998) that “In the 1990’s, the performance of the American stock market has been nothing short of amazing......

  • For example, despite a lack of prenatal care that parallels that of African-Americans, Latina mothers are far less likely to deliver low birth-weight babies with medical complications. Researchers hypothesize that this is because of healthy behaviors (avoidance of alcohol, non-smoking, high consumption of fruits and vegetables) that are more common in immigrant Latino cultures. Researchers can pinpoint health disparities among communities, but they are also beginning to recognize the wealth of healthy traditions that other cultures have to offer.

  • If a design feature makes it 1% more likely that someone's eye will be drawn to a nonuseful visual element, the only way it can go is that more people will be lost. Either they'll get fed up & give up at that point, run out of time, get confused, or guess and take a wrong turn and then get confused. It's a percentage game, and it's the designer's job to optimise the percentages to get more people through to satisfactory outcomes. “Packaging” elements that are repeated on every page are pretty dead. They communicate once and then get ignored and can't communicate much more, so pixels...

  • The most commonly used technique for planting is stump budding using improved varieties or clones (Status of… 2000). The quality of the planting material is the most important factor affecting the profitability and economics of the plantation and has to be judiciously selected depending on the local situation. Different situations warrant planting of particular types that have the capability to resist the adverse factors and produce good results.

  • The content of skills-based health education is a clear delineation of specific knowledge, attitudes, and skills, including life skills, that young people will be helped to acquire so they might adopt behaviours or create the conditions described in the objectives. Once the content is delineated, methods are chosen that are most suitable to the content. For example, lectures are suitable methods for helping students acquire accurate knowledge; discussions are suitable for influencing attitudes; and role plays are suitable for developing skills.

  • This approach offers a vision of school education within which health education seems to fit very well. The vision goes far beyond preparing young people to be economically productive or simply seeing education as some form of specialized training to meet government priorities. In many countries people recognize that the wider ethos and social climate of the school is important as a context for learn- ing in the classroom. This is compatible with a broad view of health and provides opportunities to explore its social and mental health dimensions.
