REVIEW
Edward G Abinader
Cardiac patients of all ages were managed in the past by internists who specialized in cardiology. During the past 50 years, the medical field has witnessed great strides in the management of congenital heart disease, and thus pediatric cardiology has become a subspecialty in many countries. This review article focuses on the advances in fetal cardiac interventions (FCI) since its inception by our group in 1975. Three major modes of FCI have evolved during the past 42 years: pharmacologic, closed FCI, and open FCI...

Cesarean section has undergone a transformation that has radically changed the prognosis of both the pregnant woman and her unborn child. The attributed mortality rate of Cesarean section during the 19th century was over 50% worldwide. Today, mortality from Cesarean delivery is rare. However, the technique of transversely incising the uterus in its lower uterine segment, although less than a century old, is passed on from instructor to apprentice, often without either of them being aware of its noble history...

BACKGROUND: Gender-related differences (GRD) exist in the outcome of patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). OBJECTIVES: To assess GRD in patients who underwent CRT. METHODS: A retrospective cohort of 178 patients who were implanted with a CRT in a tertiary center 2005-2009 was analyzed. Primary outcome was 1 year mortality. Secondary endpoints were readmission and complication rates. RESULTS: No statistically significant difference was found in 1 year mortality rates (14...

BACKGROUND: When a patient arrives at the emergency department (ED) presenting with symptoms of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), it is possible to reach a definitive diagnosis through many different venues, including medical history, physical examination, echocardiography, chest X-ray, and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has become a mainstream tool for diagnosis and treatment in the field of emergency medicine, as well as in various other departments in the hospital setting...

Ronen Zalts, Tomer Twizer, Ronit Leiba, Amir Karban
BACKGROUND: The identification of the etiology of a pleural effusion can be difficult. Measurement of serum B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels is helpful in the diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF) as a cause of respiratory failure, but pleural fluid BNP measurement is still not part of the workup for pleural effusion. OBJECTIVES: To identify the correlation between pleural fluid BNP levels and clinical diagnosis. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, data from 107 patients admitted to the department of internal medicine between November 2009 and January 2015 were obtained from medical records...

BACKGROUND: Damage control laparotomy (DCL) is the widely accepted procedure of choice in management of severely injured trauma patient. It has been implemented in non-trauma-related surgical pathology in the last decade. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate our experience with planned re-laparotomy (PRL) in non-trauma patients and compare it to other reports. METHODS: Charts of all patients admitted to Assaf Harofeh Medical Center who underwent PRL for non-trauma-related abdominal pathology during a 6 year period were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Shortened telomeres were found in patients with cirrhosis, probably reflecting chronic liver injury, continuous regeneration, and destruction of hepatic nodules. OBJECTIVES: To test whether telomere shortening is a general marker of cirrhosis, independent of disease etiology. METHODS: We evaluated telomere length in patients with cryptogenic cirrhosis (largely a late sequela of steatohepatitis) compared to patients with cirrhosis caused by chronic hepatitis B and C (HBV/HCV)...

BACKGROUND: The recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding universal screening for Group B Streptococcus (GBS) at 35-37 weeks gestational age in pregnancy is not accepted in Israel. The National Council for Obstetrics, Neonatology and Genetics recommends intrapartum prophylaxis, mainly based on risk factors, to prevent early neonatal GBS infection. This policy is based on past studies demonstrating low colonization rates of the bacteria in Israeli pregnant women and very low neonatal sepsis rates...

BACKGROUND: Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) production is the most common antimicrobial resistance mechanism in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), with colonization and blood stream infections being a major threat to this population. Since 2013, all NICU admissions at our facility were screened twice weekly for ESBL colonization. OBJECTIVES: To determine independent risk factors for colonization of infants with ESBL-producing bacteria in the NICU. METHODS: A retrospective case study of ESBL-colonized infants vs...

BACKGROUND: Acute musculoskeletal pain is one of the most commonly reported symptoms among patients visiting the emergency department (ED). Treatment with over-the-counter pain medications, given by nurses, results in improved pain management and reduces the waiting time to drug administration without significant side effects. Opioid analgesics are extensively used for acute pain in the ED. Compared to morphine, oxycodone has a much more specific pharmacological activity, higher analgesic potential, and more tolerable side effects...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have analyzed risk factors associated with complications after gastric cancer surgery using the Clavien-Dindo classification (CD). However, they have been based on Asian population cohorts (Chinese, Japanese, Korean). OBJECTIVES: To prospectively analyze all post-gastrectomy complications according to severity using CD classification and identify postoperative risk factors and complications. METHODS: We analyzed all gastrectomies for gastric cancer performed 2009-2014...

BACKGROUND: Limited information exists about detailed clinical characteristics and management of the small subset of Brugada syndrome (BrS) patients who had an arrhythmic event (AE). OBJECTIVES: To conduct the first nationwide survey focused on BrS patients with documented AE. METHODS: Israeli electrophysiology units participated if they had treated BrS patients who had cardiac arrest (CA) (lethal/aborted; group 1) or experienced appropriate therapy for tachyarrhythmias after prophylactic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation (group 2)...

REVIEW
Malke Borow, Baruch Levi, Rivka Carmi
In this article, we offer a brief summary of the report from the Task Force for the Promotion of the Status of Women in Medicine in Israel. The task force, formed by the Israel Medical Association in 2013, published a comprehensive report in May 2015 dedicated to the promotion of equal opportunities for female doctors in the Israeli healthcare system and in the academic world. The aim of this paper is to present the work of the task force and to highlight its main principles and recommendations against the backdrop of the gender revolution in the Israeli healthcare system and worldwide...

BACKGROUND: Male infertility is solely responsible for approximately 20% of all infertility in couples. Various factors have been proposed as having a negative effect on sperm quality; however, the reasons for the global decline in sperm parameters during the last few decades are still controversial. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the fluctuations of semen parameters (sperm concentration, motility, and morphology) in three sperm quality groups and to examine the trends of those parameters in the same men over time...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the added diagnostic value of using exercise hemodynamics during RHC in assessment of patients with symptomatic SSc. METHODS: We performed 22 RHCs in 17 SSc patients with dyspnea and/or pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Exercise was performed in 15 RHCs using isotonic arm exercises while holding a 1 kg weight in each hand. Measurements of pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP), pulmonary arterial wedge pressure (PAWP), and cardiac output (CO) were taken at rest and during peak exercise...
