Taxanes are often used in the treatment of many types of cancers. Side effects of docetaxel are not as well documented as paclitaxel, but both can cause pulmonary injury. We present a dramatic case of a patient being treated for prostatic adenocarcinoma with docetaxel who presented with interstitial pneumonitis and responded dramatically to the early treatment with corticosteroids. This case is important as it reveals the side effects of docetaxel administration without administration of other chemotherapeutic agents, and it illustrates the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of docetaxel-induced interstitial pneumonitis...

REVIEW
Luis J Jara, Gabriela Medina, Polita Cruz-Cruz, Javier Olivares-Rivera, Carolina Duarte-Salazar, Miguel A Saavedra
Obstetric antiphospholipid syndrome (Obs-APS) is one of the most commonly identified causes of recurrent pregnancy loss and its accurate diagnosis is a requirement for optimal treatment. Some patients do not fulfill the revised Sapporo classification criteria, the original APS classification criteria, and are considered to be non-criteria Obs-APS. In these patients with non-criteria, there is controversy about their inclusion within the spectrum of APS and eventually their treatment as having Obs-APS. A subset of patients may also have clinical characteristics of Obs-APS even though lupus anticoagulant (LA), anticardiolipin antibodies, and anti-β2-glycoprotein I (aβ2GPI) antibodies are consistently negative...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary infiltrates (PIs) detected in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) may present a diagnostic challenge due to their wide differential diagnosis, including infection, pulmonary lymphoma and immunochemotherapy-associated pulmonary toxicity. OBJECTIVES: To characterize therapy-associated PIs by positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging. METHODS: We conducted a historical analysis of fluorodeoxyglucose-PET/CT (18F-FDG-PET/CT) PIs in NHL patients treated with combined immunochemotherapy including rituximab...

BACKGROUND: While patients presenting to emergency departments (ER) with chest pain are increasingly managed in chest pain units (CPU) that utilize accelerated diagnostic protocols for risk stratification, such as single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), data are lacking regarding the prognostic implications of mildly abnormal scans in this population. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the prognostic implications of mildly abnormal SPECT MPI results in patients with acute chest pain...

BACKGROUND: Biallelic BLM gene mutation carriers are at an increased risk for cancer, including colorectal cancer (CRC). Whether heterozygous BLM gene mutations confer an increased cancer risk remains controversial. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate CRC and endometrial cancer risk in BLM heterozygous mutation carriers. METHODS: Jewish Ashkenazim at high risk for colon or endometrial cancer and endometrial cancer cases unselected for family history were genotyped for the BLMAsh predominant mutation...

BACKGROUND: Standardization of the dietetic care process allows for early identification of malnutrition and metabolic disorders, interdisciplinary collaboration among the medical team, and improved quality of patient care. Globally, dietitians are adopting a nutrition care model that integrates national regulations with professional scope of practice. Currently, Israel lacks a standardized dietetic care process and documentation terminology. OBJECTIVES: To assess the utilization of a novel sectoral documentation system for nutrition care in Israel...

BACKGROUND: The debate continues regarding the best way to manage partial anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. OBJECTIVES: To prospectively compare the clinical outcomes of remnant-preserving augmentation (RPA) and double-bundle reconstruction (DBR) in patients with ACL tears. METHODS: In this prospective study, we included 13 cases of RPA and 30 cases of DBR with a follow-up period of 6 months, 12 months and 24 months. We clinically compared the preoperative and postoperative range of motion, Knee Society Score (KSS), Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Lysholm score, Tegner activity score, Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), thigh and calf circumference and anterior translation (Using the KT-1000 knee arthrometer)...

Sergio Susmallian, David Goitein, Royi Barnea, Asnat Raziel
BACKGROUND: Leakage from the staple line is the most serious complication encountered after sleeve gastrectomy, occurring in 2.4% of surgeries. The use of inappropriately sized staplers, because of variability in stomach wall thickness, is a major cause of leakage. OBJECTIVES: To measure stomach wall thickness across different stomach zones to identify variables correlating with thickness. METHODS: The study comprised 100 patients (52 females)...

BACKGROUND: Trials have shown superiority of primary percutaneous intervention (PPCI) over in-hospital thrombolysis in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients treated within 6-12 hours from symptom onset. These studies also included high-risk patients not all of whom underwent a therapeutic intervention. OBJECTIVES: To compare the outcome of early-arriving stable STEMI patients treated by thrombolysis with or without coronary angiography to the outcome of PPCI-treated STEMI patients...

Hadar Moran-Lev, Dror Mandel, Yosef Weisman, Amit Ovental, Ronit Lubetzky
BACKGROUND: Israel is a country with a sunny climate; however, vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are common findings in certain populations whose exposure to sunlight is limited. Medical residency is known for long indoor working hours, thus theoretically limiting the opportunities for sun exposure. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the vitamin D status among residents in a single medical center in Tel Aviv is below the normal range. METHODS: Forty-six residents (28 females, 18 males, average age 33...

Ella Even-Tov, Itzhak Koifman, Vladimir Rozentsvaig, Leonid Livshits, Peter Gilbey
BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) has become a standard technique for critically ill patients who require long-term ventilation. The most common early post-operative complication is bleeding related to anatomical variation in vasculature. The procedure is performed at the patient's bedside unless this is deemed unsafe and then the accepted alternative is open tracheostomy in the operating room. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the use of pre-procedural ultrasound to aid in the decision of whether PDT in critical care patients should be performed at the patient's bedside or by open surgical tracheostomy...
