  • Bladder, uterine, and rectal prolapse are common sequelae of childbirth. Sometimes bulging is obvious on initial inspection, but other times it may only be evident when the patient bears down as if she were attempting to void and then defecate. The examiner should be appropriately positioned before undertaking this evaluation, because some women will lose urine with this maneuver. For many women with prolapse, diagnosis is only possible after a more detailed gynecologic examination (see Chapters 10 and 14)....

  • The basic human right of self-determination is meaningless for women who do not have the ability to control reproduction. Devoting an issue of this journal to contraception makes sense at this time when the unintended pregnancy rate in the United States continues to hover at 50%. Every woman knows whether it is the right time for her to bear a child and for her and her family to commit the considerable personal and financial resources necessary for raising that child. But the impact of contraception transcends the importance of individual choice.

  • Surgical education is changing. Mandates that foster this change include increasing demands from the public for perfection without practice, decreasing trainee work hours, increasing minimally invasive therapies, and fewer surgical educators. In addition, rising health care costs have caused many experienced surgeons to focus on patient care rather than the mentoring of surgical trainees. A paradigm shift in surgical education is being forced by all these issues.

  • For both groups we combined all the answers in which subjects gave the same confidence assessment and calculated how often they were right. Good calibration means that the fraction of correct answers should be about equal to the stated confidence level. For example, on questions where subjects said they were 80 percent confident, they should be right about 80 percent of time. If subjects are well calibrated, then a graph of the percent correct against the confidence levels should lie near a 45◦ line.

Given the difficulties, it is reasonable to ask why the House should devote time and energy to an issue that is not at the top of the public’s expressed priorities. ...

Though, the development of stratified medicine is largely dependant of the identification and the qualification of pertinent biomarkers in these areas. Regrettably, only a few studies on biomarkers have proved to be sufficiently powered to detect differences among genetic variants and/or the function of gene products.
