According to a study published in the JAMA Internal medicine, the distribution and trend in good health among Hispanic adults approximates that of non-Hispanic black adults, in contrast to the Hispanic paradox. The ageing US population, coupled with its growing diversity, marks a critical need to develop policies above and beyond those regarding access to health care in order to address these widening disparities in health.
In this study, researchers examined the Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been suggested as an initial investigation in the management of renal colic. Studies of adult emergency department patients with renal colic symptoms were included. Any degree of hydronephrosis was considered a positive POCUS finding.
A simple three-factor tool can help doctors estimate survival time in patients with long bone metastases ( LBMs ) – advanced cancer that has spread to the bones of the limbs. The study findings were published in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery
Researchers from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified a direct association between physical inactivity and two different types of cancer: lung cancer and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) — adding to a growing list of cancers linked to sedentary lifestyles.

According to this study, researchers study on anatomy of human elbow in Human Medial Collateral. The human elbow maintains its stability mainly through its bony structure. Stability is enhanced by ligamentous structures. To allow the ligament-muscular reflex, which protects against strain and stress, mechanoreceptors are embedded in the ligament. This report describes the existence and the distribution of the elbow medial collateral ligaments (MCLs) mechanoreceptors.
