In infants, the causes of acute repetitive vomiting and severely altered-consciousness status include a broad differential diagnosis, that is, primarly sepsis, infectious gastroenteritis, head injury, and intoxication, as well as neurologic, metabolic, and cardiologic condition diseases. In patients developing such symptoms, allergy as an etiological cause is often not considered by primary care physicians. With this case report, we aim to draw the attention of general pediatricians, emergency physicians, and intensivists to the fact that non-immunoglobulin E-mediated food allergic gastrointestinal disorders such as food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome should be considered in patients with sepsis-like symptoms...

PURPOSE: The best renal replacement therapy (RRT) modality remains controversial. We compared mortality and short- and long-term renal recovery between patients treated with continuous RRT and intermittent hemodialysis. METHODS: Patients of the prospective observational multicenter cohort database OUTCOMEREA™ were included if they underwent at least one RRT session between 2004 and 2014. Differences in patients' baseline and daily characteristics between treatment groups were taken into account by using a marginal structural Cox model, allowing one to substantially reduce the bias resulting from confounding factors in observational longitudinal data analysis...

Hyperuricaemia represents nowaday the new risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Prevalence data and its treatment in our patient's population are still missing. Literature data shows, that its prevalence differs in various populations significantly from 4% up to 40% with race and geographical means. In the hospital population its prevalence is about 7% and represents the important predictor of hospital mortality, e.i with heart failure. From the Framingham data relative risk was estimated of 25% for cardiovascular diseases, coronary heart disease and all-course mortality...

The authors present the case of a 54-year-old man with ulcers on the dorsal hand and forearm with exposed extensor tendons after he received misdiagnoses at 2 other hospitals, leading to deep soft tissue defects from multiple debridements. Due to the complicated nature of the wound, the ulcers did not heal under the systemic medication. After careful debridement, the defect was primarily closed with a collagen-glycosaminoglycan biodegradable matrix (Integra Matrix Wound Dressing, Integra LifeSciences, Plainsboro, NJ) on the dorsal hand and covered with a mesh graft 14 days later...

BACKGROUND: Clinical Practice Guidelines recommend using peripheral blood pulse measuring as a screening test for Atrial Fibrillation. However, there is no adequate evidence supporting the efficacy of such procedure in primary care clinical practice. This paper describes a study protocol designed to verify whether early opportunistic screening for Atrial Fibrillation by measuring blood pulse is more effective than regular practice in subjects aged 65 years attending primary care centers...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of the consulting of internal medicine (CIM) in primary care (PC) on the resolution of medical processes. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Prospective case-control study of a population of 87,016 inhabitants during a 1-year period. Patients (2,167) jointly attended by family physicians (FP) and consulting internists (CI) who go weekly to the primary care center (PCC) to attend patients who otherwise would have been referred to specialized consultation (SC)...

The inferior vena cava (IVC) is the most frequently injured retroperitoneal vascular structure. Despite the improvements in preoperative care and operation techniques, mortality rates for inferior vena cava injuries are still high due to delayed or inadequate volume recussitation, difficulty of diagnosis and technical problems in repair. A 1.5-cm sized wound at the IVC was primarly repaired by suturing. Because of appropriate and successful perioperative blood and fluid resuscitation, the patient was able to survive...

Our study compares the efficiency and acceptance of two different methods of treating dyslexia in children. The first method addresses the most commonly encountered deficits in sequential processing. It relies primarly upon the "Kieler Lese-Rechtschreibaufbau". The second proceeds from the child's relative resources with regard to simultaneous processing as described by Kaufman. Training materials are those prescribed by Kaufman. Normally gifted primary school third-graders were trained in two groups (n = 13 and n = 12) and achieved a mean SIF score of SW = 101 on the K-ABC...

AIM OF THE STUDY: The delay between onset of symptoms and coronary care unit admission is decisive in the outcome of patients with acute myocardial infarction. The objective of the GISSI-Avoidable Delay Study was to evaluate the influence of the factors that affect the delay in acute myocardial infarction treatment. METHODS: This study was a nationwide multicentre case-control study conducted in Italy by the 118 Coronary Care Units (CCUs) participating in GISSI-network...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of public health nurse postpartum home visits by comparing the health outcomes of 67 randomly selected mother-infant pairs who had received such services with 43 randomly selected mother-infant pairs who had not received them. Health outcome variables were mother's health and health services utilization, infant's health and health services utilization, and mother's parenting practices. Data were collected from birth certificates, health service records, and by home interviews and observations at six months postpartum...

Defining replantation as the restoration of a completely amputated part as opposed to simply restoring circulation to an incompletely severed part, the results of replantation of 86 completely amputated parts in 71 patients performed from January, 1970, to December, 1975, were studied. Twenty-eight, or 32.5 percent, were the result of sharp severances of the part; localized crushing accounted for 56, or 65.1 percent. Two were classified as degloving injuries. Twelve amputations were transmetacarpal, six were at the metacarpophalangeal joints, 14 through the proximal phalanx, 15 at the proximal interphalangeal joint, 21 in the middle phalanx, 13 at the distal interphalangeal joint, and five through the distal phalanx...

REVIEW

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is not a totally rare rheumatic disease. We have seen 23 patients from 1960-1975, and there are now a total of 159 reported cases, which form the basis of this study. RP occurs equally in both sexes, and has a maximum frequency in the fourth decade. 2) Empirically defined diagnostic criteria are proposed, to include the most common clinical features: a) Bilateral auricular chondritis b) Nonerosive sero-negative inflammatory polyarthritis c) nasal chondritis d) Ocular inflammation e) Respiratory tract chondritis f) Audiovestibular damage The diagnosis is based primarly upon the unique clinical features, and is quite certain if three or more criteria are present together with histologic confirmation...
