  • The mental health status of asylum seekers in middle to high income
           countries and The potential application of artificial intelligence for
           diagnosis and management of glaucoma in adults
    • Authors: Vetter N.
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: These important subjects have full free online access. The Bulletin section to celebrate its amazing archive (see end of ‘In this Issue’), when covid-19 is a major threat, we celebrate the work of David Tyrrell FRS and his work at the MRC Common Cold Research Unit, including work on a corona virus, which may have caused a flu pandemic in the 1890s. The website has a fascinating section on the Nobel Prize-winners who wrote for the Bulletin and went on to win the accolade. This is the first volume of the British Medical Bulletin that is totally online.

  • The mental health status of asylum seekers in middle- to high-income
           countries: a synthesis of current global evidence
    • Authors: Posselt M; McIntyre H, Ngcanga M, et al.
      Pages: 4 - 20
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionThe last 5 years have witnessed a significant increase in the number of people fleeing their countries of origin and seeking refuge in host countries. By the end of 2018, there were 3.5 million asylum seekers awaiting outcomes on their applications, the majority of whom were hosted by middle- to high-income countries. This review aimed to identify and synthesize current knowledge regarding the mental health status of asylum seekers in middle- to high-income countries.Sources of dataA search was conducted across various databases for research literature published within the last 5 years (2014–2019). The final review and synthesis included 25 articles.Areas of agreementFindings highlighted significant differences in the mental health status of asylum seekers compared to those with refugee status and permanent residence.Areas of controversyGuidelines from the World Health Organization and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees emphasize the need to understand and address mental health issues. Instead, there have been policy changes in many host countries regarding asylum applications, and the associated effects of these changes have been shown to negatively impact mental health.Growing pointsThe synthesized findings from the present review provide information regarding the current mental health status of asylum seekers hosted by middle- to high-income countries. Areas of intervention and resource allocation were also identified.Areas timely for developing researchFuture research should consider the impact of large-scale, low-cost interventions to support the mental health of those seeking asylum.

  • The potential application of artificial intelligence for diagnosis and
           management of glaucoma in adults
    • Authors: Campbell C; Ting D, Keane P, et al.
      Pages: 21 - 33
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundGlaucoma is the most frequent cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. There is no cure, but early detection and treatment can slow the progression and prevent loss of vision. It has been suggested that artificial intelligence (AI) has potential application for detection and management of glaucoma.Sources of dataThis literature review is based on articles published in peer-reviewed journals.Areas of agreementThere have been significant advances in both AI and imaging techniques that are able to identify the early signs of glaucomatous damage. Machine and deep learning algorithms show capabilities equivalent to human experts, if not superior.Areas of controversyConcerns that the increased reliance on AI may lead to deskilling of clinicians.Growing pointsAI has potential to be used in virtual review clinics, telemedicine and as a training tool for junior doctors. Unsupervised AI techniques offer the potential of uncovering currently unrecognized patterns of disease. If this promise is fulfilled, AI may then be of use in challenging cases or where a second opinion is desirable.Areas timely for developing researchThere is a need to determine the external validity of deep learning algorithms and to better understand how the ‘black box’ paradigm reaches results.

  • Posterior shoulder instability: a systematic review
    • Authors: Longo U; Ciuffreda M, Locher J, et al.
      Pages: 34 - 53
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionThis review aims to provide information on outcomes of surgical procedures for soft tissue or bony glenoid and/or humeral abnormalities in case of posterior shoulder instability.Source of dataA systematic review of the literature according to the PRISMA guidelines was performed. A comprehensive search of PubMed, Medline, CINAHL, Cochrane, Embase, Ovid and Google Scholar databases using various combinations of the keywords ‘shoulder’, ‘posterior instability’, ‘dislocation’, ‘reversed bony bankart’, ‘reversed Hill Sachs’, and ‘capsulolabral’ was performed.Areas of agreementA total of 847 shoulders in 810 patients were included. A redislocation event occurred in 33 (8.7%) of 411 shoulders with soft tissue abnormalities and in 12 (9.1%) of 132 shoulders with bony abnormalities of the glenoid, humeral head or both.Areas of controversyThe optimal treatment modalities for posterior shoulder dislocation remain to be defined.Growing pointsOperative stabilization for posterior shoulder instability should be lesion-specific and should correct all components of the posterior instability.Areas timely for developing researchFuture prospective studies should aim to establish the optimal treatment modalities for posterior shoulder instability.

      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionComplications of Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) remain prevalent due to suboptimal glycaemic control despite advances in analogue insulin, its delivery and technological advances in glucose monitoring. Intensive insulin therapy is associated with hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Non–insulin-dependent glucose lowering strategies may provide a strategy in improving glycaemic control without hypoglycaemia and weight gain.Sources of dataResearch papers and reviews about adjunctive treatment with insulin in T1DM in the published literature.Areas of agreementNon–insulin-dependent strategies may be beneficial inT1DM particularly when there is insulin resistance, but the evidence for benefit at the current time is limited. Although there have been trials with various drugs as adjunctive therapy to insulin in T1DM currently in the UK, there is only one sodium glucose transport protein 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor with a marketing authorization for use in this indication.Areas of controversyPotential for harm with SGLT2 inhibitors in T1DM is a potential issue, particularly euglycaemic diabetic ketoacidosis. Clinical trials confirm that there is a risk albeit small, but emerging safety data have led to questions as to whether the risk of euglycaemic diabetic ketoacidosis is higher with the use of SGLT2 inhibitors in clinical practice.Growing pointsPatient education is paramount—the work being done in T1DM to ensure safe use of SGLT2 inhibitors may help improve safety in the prescribing of SGLT2 inhibitors in Type 2 diabetes.Areas timely for developing researchThere is a need for larger clinical trials with SGLT2 inhibitors in T1DM and real world studies to clarify safety.

  • Health inequalities are worsening in the North East of England
    • Authors: Corris V; Dormer E, Brown A, et al.
      Pages: 63 - 72
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundThe North of England, particularly the North East (NE), has worse health (e.g. 2 years lower life expectancy) and higher health inequalities compared to the rest of England.Sources of dataWe explore this over time drawing on publicly available data.Areas of agreement and controversyWhilst overall health is improving, within-regional health inequalities are getting worse and the gap between the NE and other regions (particularly the South of England) is worsening. The gap in life expectancy is widening with substantial variation between deprived and affluent areas within the NE. Those living in the NE are more likely to have a shorter lifespan and to spend a larger proportion of their shorter lives in poor health, as well as being more likely to die prematurely from preventable diseases.Growing pointsWe highlight wide, and in some cases increasing, inequalities in health outcomes between the NE and the rest of England. This health disadvantage and the north-south health divide are recognized; despite this, the situation appears to be worsening over the time.Areas timely for developing researchResearch to understand and reduce health inequalities is needed particularly in the NE of England where reductions could have enhanced the impact.

  • Understanding and managing suicide risk
    • Authors: Zortea T; Cleare S, Melson A, et al.
      Pages: 73 - 84
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundSuicidal behaviours and non-suicidal self-harm (NSSH) are global public health concerns that affect millions of lives.Sources of dataThis review is a narrative synthesis of systematic reviews, meta-analyses of randomized control trials (RCTs) and landmark studies published in scientific journals.Areas of agreementRestricting access to lethal means reduces the likelihood of future suicide deaths.Areas of controversyOur ability to predict future suicidal behaviour is no better than chance. No individual risk prediction instrument offers sufficient sensitivity and specificity to inform clinically useful decision-making.Growing pointsDifferent types of psychosocial interventions may be effective in preventing future suicide attempts; such interventions include clinical assessment, tailored crisis response and safety plans and follow-up contact.Areas timely for developing researchWhilst some psychosocial interventions can be effective in reducing suicide risk, little is known about the mechanisms of recovery from suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

  • Arthroscopic superior capsular reconstruction versus latissimus dorsi
           transfer for irreparable rotator cuff lesions: a systematic review
    • Authors: Osti L; Milani L, Gerace E, et al.
      Pages: 85 - 96
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionThe present systematic review compared arthroscopic superior capsular reconstruction (ASCR) and latissimus dorsi transfer (ALDT) for the management of massive irreparable rotator cuff lesions.Sources of dataWe performed a systematic review searching the literature on Medline, Cochrane and Scopus databases, following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines.Areas of agreementWe included a total of 20 articles, 10 on ASCR and 10 on ALDT (12 retrospective and 8 prospective studies), all published between 2013 and 2019.Areas of controversyASCR and ALDT are technical demanding procedures. When compared to each other, they do not produce significantly different improvements in clinical outcome.Growing pointsBoth ASCR and ALDT are valid options for surgical management of MIRCLs. Although ALDT has shown a greater complication rate and a less improvement in acromion-humeral distance, its clinical outcomes overlap those obtained with ASCR.Areas timely for developing researchFurther comparative prospective and retrospective studies with longer follow-up could confirm which surgical procedure can lead to better outcomes with a lower complication rate.
