It’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly romp through what’s newly published in the peer-reviewed literature. A few items of interest for those of you who are educators, and a good bit of variety for everyone else in the field. Lots that is clinically relevant, not all of it from the US. Plus one or two familiar faces in the bunch, which I always like to see.
A note in response to a reader’s query about whether (essentially) posting=endorsing. The answer, of course, is no–I post what I think is interesting, what I think others may find interesting, and what I think is worth noticing, even if it isn’t particularly great. Please remember that not everything given space in a journal is actually good science. And just because we think it’s good science today doesn’t mean we might not revise that opinion a year or two down the road. So please read critically–pick apart hypotheses, consider whether what you read applies to your own patient populations or mirrors what you see in practice. I publish these compilations only to get folks to read. What you choose to do with that information is up to you.
