Pocket-size ultrasound devices (PSUD) are now widely available becoming a useful tool for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. We aim to investigate the accuracy of PSUD in diagnosing cholelithiasis as compared to traditional ultrasonography. Moreover, we tested the reliability of PSUD when performed by inexperienced internal medicine residents after a short-term training. We consecutively enrolled inpatients and outpatients referred to undergo abdominal ultrasonography for signs or symptoms of gallbladder diseases in two different hospitals...

Very recently, the European Parliament, called to decide on possible abolition of the Daylight Saving Time (DST), approved a resolution calling the scientific community to conduct a more in-depth evaluation. The question is based on disruption of body's circadian rhythms. We review here the relationship between DST and cardiovascular health. The available evidence suggests the existence of an association between DST and a modest increase of occurrence of acute myocardial infarction, especially in the first week after the spring shift...

In the past few years, new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) targeting directly a single activated clotting factor, have been developed for the treatment of non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), which are currently recommended as first-line therapy in AF. The aim of this study is to provide an overall picture on the extent to which oral anticoagulation (OAC) with NOACs correspond to actually prescribed OAC therapy in an unselected, real world, population of consecutive patients with AF in Italy. Compliance with the therapy and quality of life were also assessed...

Extreme hypomagnesemia (hypoMg) can be encountered in many situations, but little data currently exist. Our aim is to describe the epidemiological, clinical, etiological characteristics, and the biological abnormalities of consecutive inpatients with extreme hypomagnesemia. In our observational monocentric study, between 1st July 2000 and April 2015, all inpatients with extreme hypomagnesemia, defined by at least one plasma magnesium concentration (PMg ) below 0.3 mmol/L, were included. Demographic, clinical, biological characteristics and the drugs prescribed before the qualifying PMg measurement were retrospectively collected...

Changes in the causes of brain death may influence the numbers of hearts that can be procured and transplanted. We retrospectively investigated whether the distribution of causes responsible for brain death have changed over a 15-year period in a cohort of 1286 potential heart donor (aged ≤ 60), and whether it influenced heart procurement. Between 2001 and 2016, the age of potential donors significantly increased (p < 0.0001) as well as the relative proportion of postanoxic brain death, while that of traumatic brain injury decreased (p = 0...

The purpose of this document, a result of the harmonisation and revision of Guidelines published separately by the SIMFER, SIOMMMS/SIR, and SIOT associations, is to provide practical indications based on specific levels of evidence and various grades of recommendations, drawn from available literature, for the management of osteoporosis and for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of fragility fractures. These indications were discussed and formally approved by the delegates of the Italian Scientific Associations involved in the project (SIE, SIGG, SIMFER, SIMG, SIMI, SIOMMMS, SIR, and SIOT)...

Anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening, rapid-onset hypersensitive reaction, usually treated in the emergency department (ED). Failure to recognize anaphylaxis leads to under-treatment with epinephrine and even when correctly diagnosed, epinephrine is not always administered. In addition, often patients who are treated in the ED are not referred for allergy work-up. Simulation is a tool that increases exposure to events in a safe environment, allowing trainers to develop skills without harming patients...

Toxic megacolon (TM) is a potentially fatal condition characterized by non-obstructive colonic dilatation and systemic toxicity. It is most commonly caused by inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Limited data for TM are available demonstrating incidence, in-hospital outcomes and predictors of mortality. We sought to investigate incidence, characteristics, mortality and predictors of mortality associated with it. Data were obtained from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP)'s Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database from January 2010 through December 2014...

Heart disease remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in transfusion-dependent thalassemia (TDT), which can be attributed to several factors but primarily develops in the setting of iron overload. This was a retrospective cohort study utilizing Webthal® patient data from five major centers across Italy. Patients without heart disease were followed-up for 10 years (2000-2010) and data were collected for demographics, splenectomy status, serum ferritin and hemoglobin levels, and comorbidities associated with heart disease...
