Lifestyle intervention designed to help obese women lose 5% to 10% of their body weight did not improve perinatal outcomes after subsequent treatment for infertility. http://ja.ma/2a9Yt7B

Physicians cannot become too devoted to decreasing late preterm and early term birth rates. For pregnancies in which there is a complication and when delivery will optimize the pregnancy outcome, delivery should occur and will require an obstetrical intervention. http://ja.ma/2a9ZkFe

Between 2006 and 2014, late preterm and early term birth rates decreased in the United States and an association was observed between early term birth rates and decreasing clinician-initiated obstetric interventions. http://ja.ma/2auTugs
Importance Clinicians have been urged to delay the use of obstetric interventions (eg, labor induction, cesarean delivery) until 39 weeks or later in the absence of maternal or fetal indications for intervention. Objective To describe recent trends in late preterm and early term birth rates ...

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has concluded that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of visual skin examination by a clinician to screen for skin cancer in asymptomatic adults. http://ja.ma/2arsFLL

Decreasing US early term birth rates were associated with decreasing rates of clinician-initiated obstetric interventions; obstetric interventions increased in some other countries but with no association with late preterm or early term birth rates. http://ja.ma/2abKj5P

A woman in her 60s with connective tissue disease and pulmonary arterial hypertension presented with new-onset ascites. She had jugular venous distension, an accentuated P2 on cardiac exam, ascites on exam, ultrasound characterized by an albumin level of 2.5 g/dL, and a serum-ascites albumin gradient of 1.5. How do you interpret the test results? http://ja.ma/29Dq4dD

Among children born with the chromosome disorders trisomy 13 or 18 in Ontario, Canada, early death was the most common outcome, but 10 percent to 13 percent survived for 10 years. Among children who underwent surgical interventions, 1-year survival was high. http://ja.ma/2aeZmIY
Importance Trisomy 13 and 18 are genetic diagnoses with characteristic physical features, organ anomalies, and neurodevelopmental disability. Most children with these disorders die shortly after birth, although limited data suggest some children survive longer. Surgeries are controversial, and little evidence is available about outcomes. Objective ...

Among patients with 1 to 3 brain metastases, the use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) alone, compared with SRS combined with whole brain radiotherapy, resulted in less cognitive deterioration at 3 months. http://ja.ma/2aeHhe7
Importance Whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) significantly improves tumor control in the brain after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), yet because of its association with cognitive decline, its role in the treatment of patients with brain metastases remains controversial. Objective To determine whether there is less cognitive deterioration ...
