REVIEW
Simone Baldovino, Antoni Montserrat Moliner, Domenica Taruscio, Erica Daina, Dario Roccatello
The European Union defines rare diseases (RDs) as life-threatening or chronically debilitating conditions whose prevalence is less than 5 per 10,000. Moreover, for many RDs, including those of genetic origin, combined efforts are required to reduce morbidity or perinatal and early mortality, and address the considerable decline in an individual's quality of life and socioeconomic potential. Their specificities, i.e., a limited number of patients and scarcity of relevant knowledge and expertise, make RDs a unique condition which requires wide cooperation at a supranational level...

REVIEW
Ely L Steinberg, Eitan Segev, Michael Drexler, Tomer Ben-Tov, Snir Nimrod
The progression from standard celluloid films to digitalized technology led to the development of new software programs to fulfill the needs of preoperative planning. We describe here preoperative digitalized programs and the variety of conditions for which those programs can be used to facilitate preparation for surgery. A PubMed search using the keywords "digitalized software programs," "preoperative planning" and "total joint arthroplasty" was performed for all studies regarding preoperative planning of orthopedic procedures that were published from 1989 to 2014 in English...

Forsan Jahshan, Ilana Doweck, Ohad Ronen
BACKGROUND: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is used to provide rapid diagnostic information regarding masses of the head and neck. To achieve good results, adequate training is essential. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of FNAC in the diagnosis of head and neck masses performed by residents and attending physicians. METHODS: Palpable guided FNA biopsies from 166 consecutive patients with head and neck masses, excluding thyroid, who were treated in our department between 2008 and 2010 were retrospectively reviewed...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Noam Oz, Danny Alon, Chava Chezar-Azerrad, Lisa Cooper, Yochai Levi, Shmuel Fuchs, Gideon Y Stein
BACKGROUND: Prophylaxis for hospitalized venous-thromboembolic events (VTEs) is frequently underutilized, in part due to lack of a simple risk assessment model (RAM). OBJECTIVES: To compare patient selection and administration of VTE prophylaxis according to the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) 2008 guidelines versus the newer 2012 guidelines, and assess the feasibility of developing simpler local RAMs. METHODS: We conducted a prospective assessment of VTE risk among 300 unselected consecutive patients admitted to a medical hospital ward, using the 2008 and 2012 ACCP guidelines...

Atira S Bick, Zeev Meiner, Marc Gotkine, Netta Levin
BACKGROUND: Neurolathyrism is a toxic nutritional disorder caused by consumption of the grass pea, Lathyrus sativus. The disease, which manifests as an acute or insidiously evolving spastic paraparesis, continues to occur throughout Africa and Asia. Research on this disease is limited, and to our knowledge no imaging studies of patients with neurolathyrism have been published. OBJECTIVES: To better localize the site of damage in neurolathyrism using advanced imaging methods...

Rona Dagan, Roxana Cleper, Miriam Davidovits, Levana Sinai-Trieman, Irit Krause
BACKGROUND: The incidence of post-infectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN) has decreased over the last decades. As a result, recent epidemiological data from industrialized countries are scarce. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate patterns of PIGN in children and detect possible predictors of disease severity. METHODS: We collected clinical and laboratory data of patients with PIGN admitted to Schneider Children's Medical Center during 1994-2011. Diagnostic criteria included presence of hematuria with/without other features of nephritic syndrome along with hypocomplementemia and/or microbiological/serological evidence of streptococcal infection...

Tzippora Shalem, Akiva Fradkin, Marguerite Dunitz-Scheer, Tal Sadeh-Kon, Tali Goz-Gulik, Yael Fishler, Batia Weiss
BACKGROUND: Children dependent on gastrostomy tube feeding and those with extremely selective eating comprise the most challenging groups of early childhood eating disorders. We established, for the first time in Israel, a 3 week intensive weaning and treatment program for these patients based on the "Graz model." OBJECTIVES: To investigate the Graz model for tube weaning and for treating severe selective eating disorders in one center in Israel. METHODS: Pre-program assessment of patients' suitability to participate was performed 3 months prior to the study, and a treatment goal was set for each patient...

Einat Hertzberg-Bigelman, Rami Barashi, Ran Levy, Lena Cohen, Jeremy Ben-Shoshan, Gad Keren, Michal Entin-Meer
BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often accompanied by impairment of cardiac function that may lead to major cardiac events. Erythropoietin (EPO), a kidney-produced protein, was shown to be beneficial to heart function. It was suggested that reduced EPO secretion in CKD may play a role in the initiation of heart damage. OBJECTIVES: To investigate molecular changes in the EPO/ erythropoietin receptor (EPO-R) axis in rat cardiomyocytes using a rat model for CKD...

Muhammad Mahaj, Rajech Sharkia, Nadeem Shorbaji, Nathanel Zelnik
BACKGROUND: Despite the increased worldwide recognition of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), there is a variability in the diagnostic rate of both ADHD and its co-morbidities. These diversities are probably related to the methodology and instruments used for the diagnosis of ADHD and to awareness and cultural interpretation of its existence. OBJECTIVES: To identify consistent differences in the clinical profile of Arab and Jewish children with ADHD in Israel who differ in cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic background...

BACKGROUND: Syncope is a common clinical condition spanning from benign to life-threatening diseases. There is sparse information on the outcomes of syncopal patients who received an implantable cardiac defibrillator (lCD) for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD). OBJECTIVES: To assess the outcomes and prognosis of patients who underwent implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implantation for primary prevention of SCD and compare them to patients who presented with or without prior syncope...

BACKGROUND: Fertility treatments are responsible for the rise in high order pregnancies in recent decades and their associated complications. Reducing the number of embryos returned to the uterus will reduce the rate of high order pregnancies. OBJECTIVES: To explore whether obstetric history and parity have a role in the clinician's decision making regarding the number of embryos transferred to the uterus during in vitro fertilization (IVF). METHODS: In a retrospective study for the period August 2005 to March 2012, data of twin deliveries > 24 weeks were collected, including parity, mode of conception (IVF vs...
