Delisting Full Coverage for In Vitro Fertilization in Quebec
25 November 2019 | Alexia De Simone
On 28 November 2015, the Quebec government withdrew full coverage for its assisted procreation program that had been previously covered since 2010. The previously approved legislation under Bill 26 aimed to decrease neonatal intensive-care unit costs associated from multiple birth pregnancies and to increase the number of live-births in the province by funding up to six natural in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles and implementing a single-embryo-transfer (SET) policy.

Radiation Safety Awareness Amongst First-Year Medical and Dental Students
10 November 2019 | Leinjo I. Mengnjo, Yasser A. Noureldin, Sero Andonian
An anonymous electronic survey of first-year medical and dental students at McGill University was conducted between February and April 2016. It was made up of 15 close-ended questions assessing knowledge and practice of radiation safety measures.

The aim of this study was to validate previous studies that found significantly reduced motor learning period with combined use of tDCS and BCI. Also, to evaluate if the high density system with targeted anodal tDCS had similar effects compared to non-targeted tDCS.

Immune dysfunction in spaceflight and diabetes mellitus – translating space observations to terrestrial disease
07 September 2019 | Adil S. Ahmed, Vignesh Ramachandran, Daniel K. O'Conor, Erik L. Antonsen
Spaceflight alters normal physiology of cells and tissues seen on Earth. Immune cells and signaling molecules appear to be particularly affected, resulting in changes in leukocyte populations, such as signaling molecule responses to immune challenge, and effector function. Akin to spaceflight, diabetes mellitus produces significant immune system dysfunction.

Pioneers in Anesthesia: The Bourne Generation
12 August 2019 | Robin Manaloor
A reflection and essay on the life and achievements of Dr. Wesley Bourne. As an early pioneer in the history of Canadian anesthesiology, Dr. Bourne would pave the path for an entire generation of anesthesiologists to come.

Clinical trial transparency
02 August 2019 | Richeek Pradhan and Olivia Bonardi
Sharing the results of clinical research conducted on human participants is the researcher’s ethical imperative. While publishing research papers in medical journals is one way to do so, this limits the accessibility of the results to the select few who read such journals, effectively hiding the results from general public awareness, veiled in medical jargon and behind journals' paywalls.

Ripe
12 May 2019 | Kacper Niburski
The heart is open and I wonder if my feet smell. Much of the room seems too busy to notice. The surgeon is making a joke about the shaky season of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The attendants laugh in unison. The perfusionists look to their dials, turn one, turn off another, and gaze my way with a nod. Do they smell it too?

Bio-Engineering in Microtia Reconstruction: A Narrative Review
08 May 2019 | Ann-Sophie Lafrenière
Three-dimensional (3D) modeling and printing have become widely adopted in surgical fields, whether it be for pre-operative planning, production of prosthesis, or outcomes monitoring. Plastic and reconstructive surgeons have shown interest in using 3D technology in craniofacial reconstruction, in particular for microtia.
