BACKGROUND: Increasing antibiotic resistance in the community results in greater use of empiric broad spectrum antibiotics for patients at hospital admission. As a measure of antibiotic stewardship it is important to identify a patient population that can receive narrow spectrum antibiotics. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate resistance patterns of Escherichia coli bloodstream infection (BSI) from strictly community-acquired infection and the impact of recent antibiotic use on this resistance...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency have been reported in fibromyalgia. However, to the best of our knowledge, only one study has evaluated the role of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] supplementation on fibromyalgia symptoms. OBJECTIVES: To analyze the effects of 3 months of 25(OH)D supplementation on symptoms of fibromyalgia. METHODS: This study included 11 female patient. Demographic and clinical data, tender points, visual analog scale results, and pre- and post-serum levels of 25(OH)D supplementation were analyzed...

Chen Dror, Amanda Sinai, Doron Gothelf
BACKGROUND: Williams syndrome (WS) is a neurogenetic syndrome characterized by a variety of medical conditions and cognitive deficits along with distinct psychiatric and behavioral characteristics. To the best of our knowledge, no studies to date have comprehensively reported the prevalence of medical, cognitive deficits, and psychiatric disorders in one cohort of people with WS in one study. OBJECTIVES: To detail the prevalence of the various clinical features of WS in a large nationwide Israeli cohort...

Tamar Shalom, Avichai Shuv-Ami
BACKGROUND: The treatment of advanced dementia patients is very complex and presents a difficult dilemma for physicians, and especially for the patient's family. In many cases, when the advanced dementia patient has no decisional capacity, the family needs to decide about force-feeding and resuscitation for their relative. OBJECTIVES: To examine public opinion regarding force-feeding and resuscitation of patients with advanced dementia. METHODS: Data from 1002 people who accompanied a patient to a hospital emergency department in Israel were collected and analyzed...

Nadav Shinhar, Dana Marcoviciu, Dror Dicker
BACKGROUND: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial disease in which genetic susceptibility and environmental factors induce pancreatic β-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance. Additional factors such as hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia have roles in β-cell dysfunction and disease progression. The phenomenon of lipid-induced pancreatic β-dysfunction, designated as lipotoxicity, has been observed in several in vitro and in vivo experiments; however, there is still no solid evidence for the occurrence of this event in humans...

BACKGROUND: About half of all patients with heart failure are diagnosed with heart failure preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Until now, studies have failed to show that medical treatment improves the prognosis of patients with HFpEF. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate changes in exercise capacity of patients with HFpEF compared to those with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) following an exercise training program. METHODS: Patient data was retrieved from a multi-center registry of patients with heart failure who participated in a cardiac rehabilitation program...

Osher Cohen, Arthur Baazov, Inbal Samuk, Michael Schwarz, Dragan Kravarusic, Enrique Freud
BACKGROUND: Wandering spleen is a rare entity that may pose a surgical emergency following torsion of the splenic vessels, mainly because of a delayed diagnosis. Complications after surgery for wandering spleen may necessitate emergency treatment. OBJECTIVES: To describe the clinical course and treatment for children who underwent emergency surgeries for wandering spleen at a tertiary pediatric medical center over a 21 year period and to indicate the pitfalls in diagnosis and treatment as reflected by our experience and in the literature...

Rom Mendel, Maayan Yitshak-Sade, Michael Nash, Ben-Zion Joshua
BACKGROUND: The most common complication after tonsillectomy is bleeding. We investigated whether performing the procedure during the summer or the winter affects the bleeding rate. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether there is an association between meteorological conditions and the occurrence of post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage (PTH) in the southern Israel Negev region. METHODS: All patients who underwent tonsillectomy from 2001-2013 at the Soroka Medical Center were included...

Raymond Farah, Rola Khamisy-Farah, Nicola Makhoul
BACKGROUND: Accurate diagnosis of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is crucial to its proper management and to combating antibiotic resistance. Levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) have been shown to distinguish pneumonia from other pathological conditions and can be used to control the severity of infection during admission. OBJECTIVES: To investigate an association between consecutive measurements of CRP and the severity of CAP in hospitalized patients. METHODS: A total of 500 patients with CAP were admitted to the hospital...

BACKGROUND: One-stage direct-to-implant post-mastectomy breast reconstruction has been gaining popularity over the traditional two-stage/tissue-expander approach. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the outcome of the two post-mastectomy breast reconstruction procedures in terms of patient satisfaction. METHODS: Clinical data were collected by file review for patients who underwent mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction at two tertiary medical centers in 2010-2013...

Yosef Sonnenblick, Michal Taler, Yaacov G Bachner, Rael D Strous
BACKGROUND: Although exercise has been shown to improve mood and well-being, the precise mechanism remains unknown. Neurosteroids are important neuroactive molecules with demonstrated involvement in several neurophysiological and disease processes. Previous research has noted neurosteroid changes in dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels following exercise. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether changes in DHEA levels are associated with mood improvement after exercise and whether there are any differences in the effects on younger and older individuals...
