BACKGROUND: Talus is a well-supported bone in the foot. A fracture of talus requires a high-impact injury. A wedge-shaped inferolateral component is the lateral process of the talus (LPT). A fracture of LPT is also known as a 'snowboarder's fracture'. Simultaneous bilateral snowboarder's fracture is rarely reported in English literature. CASE: We present here a case of simultaneous bilateral snowboarder's fractures in a slow-moving motor vehicle accident in the icy conditions...

AIM: Rates of acute rheumatic fever in the Northland region are historically among the highest in New Zealand, impacting disproportionately on Māori children and youth. The primary aim of this study was to determine patient persistence to antibiotic treatment for group A streptococcus (GAS) pharyngitis in patients presenting with sore throat to the Whangarei Hospital Emergency Department. Secondarily, this study sought to determine prescriber adherence to the national antibiotic guideline for sore throat management...

Nicola Culliford-Semmens, Elizabeth Tilton, Rachel Webb, Diana Lennon, Belinda Paku, John Malcolm, Sandi French, Nikki Blair, Nigel Wilson
AIMS: The primary aim of this study was to determine adherence to benzathine penicillin (BPG) for individuals diagnosed with rheumatic heart disease (RHD) by echocardiographic screening between 2007-2012. METHODS: BPG records were obtained for 57 patients, median age 12 at time of diagnosis. A 'days at risk' analysis was undertaken. Annual adherence was calculated for each individual. A comparison with the Wellington region's Rheumatic Fever 2013 adherence data was undertaken...

Mohit Bajaj, Vipul Upadhyay
AIM: Undescended testis (UDT) affects 1-6% of males and is one of the most common disorders in paediatric surgery.Updated consensus guidelines now recommend surgical management of UDT by 18 months. We compare the age at referral and subsequent timing of orchiopexy with data published from 1996-1998 at our institution, prior to the advent of updated guidelines. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients undergoing an orchiopexy for UDT from 2014 to 2016 was conducted...

Antonia Verstappen, Phillippa Poole
AIM: There is little recent data on the debt levels accrued by New Zealand medical graduates. We aimed to quantify the level of student loan debt accrued by medical graduates upon completion of their medical degree, and to investigate the association of New Zealand Government Student Loan (GSL) debt with gender and age. METHODS: At graduation each year from 2006-2015, students from one New Zealand medical programme were invited to complete a career intention survey that included information on levels of GSL debt and the number of income sources used...

#10
Liselle Bissessor, Janet Wilson, Gary McAuliffe, Arlo Upton
AIMS: Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) prevalence varies among different communities and peoples. The availability of robust molecular platforms for the detection of TV has advanced diagnosis; however, molecular tests are more costly than phenotypic methodologies, and testing all urogenital samples is costly. We recently replaced culture methods with the Aptima Trichomonas vaginalis nucleic acid amplification test on specific request and as reflex testing by the laboratory, and have audited this change...

Sonam Mishra, Dalice Sim, Peter Flanagan
AIM: We set out to evaluate the effectiveness of a new model of self management of haemochromatosis, whereby patients with stable ferritin control were discharged from the New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) therapeutic venesection clinic and educated to manage their own venesection by regular blood donation and annual serum ferritin check by their general practitioner. METHOD: Data regarding the frequency of blood donation and serum ferritin level were collected from the NZBS and Concerto records of haemochromatosis patients in the Wellington region who had been discharged back to the care of their general practitioner between January 2014 and June 2015...

An 85-year-old female presented to hospital with haemoptysis. She underwent investigations which confirmed oesophageal submucosal haematoma. Oesophageal haematoma along with Mallory-Weiss and Boerhaave's syndromes make up acute mucosal injury of the oesophagus. It can be managed conservatively in the majority of cases.

Ben Gray, Eric J Hardt
Cultural competency in medicine is not possible unless language differences are addressed effectively. Many disparities that appear to be based on cultural, socioeconomic, demographic and other differences can be reduced or eliminated with the use of qualified medical interpretation and translation in multilingual situations. The development of this precious resource varies from country to country around the world as most developed countries face increasingly diverse groups of immigrants and refugees as well as inclusion of more indigenous groups of patients...

Scott Metcalfe, Peter Murray, Carsten Schousboe
Tobacco consumption is a significant national public health issue. The waste it generates-tobacco product waste (TPW)-is also an environmental hazard. Targeting TPW through novel policies/regulations-such as a cigarette butt deposit scheme-may serve the dual purposes of reducing an environment nuisance and progressing Aotearoa New Zealand to its goal of being smokefree by 2025.

BACKGROUND: Despite a major reduction in overall infant mortality, sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI) continues to be of concern in New Zealand, as the rate is high by international standards, and is even higher in indigenous Māori. AIM: To identify modifiable risk factors for SUDI. METHODS: A three-year (1 March 2012-28 February 2015) nationwide case-control study was conducted in New Zealand. RESULTS: There were 137 SUDI cases, giving a SUDI mortality rate of 0...
