The most effective delivery format for Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) was studied via a network meta-analysis. For acute symptoms of depression, group, telephone, and guided self-help treatment formats appeared to be effective interventions although guided self-help CBT may be less acceptable for patients than individual, group, or telephone formats.

Researchers from Canada came together to ascertain whether the iTClamp is equivalent to direct manual pressure (DMP) and Foley catheter balloon tamponade (BCT). They found that the iTClamp and BCT were associated with significantly less fluid loss in a neck hemorrhage than DMP in a perfused cadaver model. The iTClamp required significantly less time to apply than the BCT and were more effective than simple DMP.

This is a case of an acetabular fracture treated using a unidirectional porous β-tricalcium phosphate artificial bone (Affinos®) to surgically repair bone defects. An 82-year-old man sustained an acetabular fracture on the left side and presented with shock on arrival along with impaired vital signs and systolic blood pressure. Upon stabilization, we performed an open reduction and internal fixation. However, there were significant bone defects, which were then fixed using Affinos® (both blocks and granules), an artificial β-tricalcium phosphate bone with a porosity of 57% (pore size: 25–300 μm), characterized by a novel unidirectional porous structure. By 18 months postoperatively, the patient was able to perform stair climbing and absorption and bone fusion around the artificial bone were observed. Affinos® has a frost-like structure, which endows it with good tissue-invasive properties because of the capillary effect.
