BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD), a surgical option for nonpancreatic periampullary adenocarcinoma (NPPA), is a complex procedure that has become increasing popular. However, there is no consensus as to whether this technique should be performed routinely. Our aim was to evaluate the outcomes of LPD compared with open pancreaticoduodenectomy (OPD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From October 2010 to September 2015, 58 LPDs were performed to treat NPPA and were compared with 58 OPDs, which can theoretically be carried out by laparoscopic approach...

BACKGROUND: Definitive laboratory diagnosis and confirmation of tuberculosis remains a major challenge because of lack of specificity and sensitivity of diagnostic methods especially in sputum smear negative tuberculosis. Many studies have proved the role of ADA in diagnosis of tuberculosis in effusion fluids and a decrease in ADA activity after treatment. This study was aimed to investigate the role of serum ADA level as an early diagnostic and prognostic marker for pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB)...

This study was included 60 women with suspected genital tuberculosis, attending outpatient department of a tertiary care hospital. The aim was to evaluate the role and accuracy of laparoscopy in the diagnosis of genital tuberculosis. The patients were investigated for tuberculosis with Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate, Montoux, chest X-ray, serum ELISA, CA125, ultrasonography, endometrial biopsy and laparoscopic biopsy. Culture or histopathology was taken as a gold standard for confirming the cases of genital tuberculosis...

We aimed to describe the potential benefit of new rapid molecular respiratory tests (MRT) in decreasing inappropriate antibiotic use among the inpatients presenting with influenza-like illness (ILI). We included patients from inpatient and outpatient departments who had ILI and performed MRT between 1 January 2015 and 31 December 2016 in a 265-bed private hospital in Istanbul. At the end of 2015, we implemented antimicrobial stewardship including systematic use of MRT. Then, we compared our observations between the year 2015 and the year 2016...

Background: The co-existence of psychiatric co-morbidities with Epilepsy in women is multifactorial and complex, being closely related to hormonal status, medication side effects, and psychosocial factors. Aims: We aimed to study associated Psychiatric co-morbidities in women with Epilepsy (WWE), and correlate the same with seizure subtype and medication , compliance with treatment and seizure control. Material and Methods: This was a prospective, interview based study in OPD over 18 months, evaluating WWE over 13 years of age with at least 1 seizure in the last 1 year...

The objective of this study was to show the differences between paired blood cultures (PBC) versus single blood cultures (SBC) in the microbiologic yield, the sensitivity to detect pathogens and the time to positivity (TTP). We performed a retrospective study examining 112,570 blood culture samples over a 5-year period from July 2011 to May 2016 in the BacT/ALERT® 3D automated blood culture system (bioMérieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France).

BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease with known systemic manifestations including psychiatric comorbidities most commonly being depression and/or anxiety. Studies regarding the association of these psychiatric comorbidities in terms of symptom scores, spirometric variables, and hospitalizations among patients of COPD are lacking, especially in India. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty-eight patients of COPD attending the Outpatient Department of AIIMS Rishikesh, and fulfilling inclusion criteria were screened by Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and those who scored above the cutoff underwent psychiatric evaluation using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Edition Diagnostic Criteria for Research for confirmation of their diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Degenerative rotator cuff tears (RCTs) are generally thought to originate at the anterior margin of the supraspinatus tendon. However, a recent ultrasonography study suggested that they might originate more posteriorly than originally thought, perhaps even from the isolated infraspinatus (ISP) tendon, and propagate toward the anterior supraspinatus. Hypothesis/Purpose: It was hypothesized that this finding could be reproduced with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The purpose was to determine the most common location of degenerative RCTs by using 3-dimensional multiplanar MRI reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: A large proportion of hospital outpatients are alcohol dependent (AD) but few are engaged in treatment for their drinking. Brief intervention, designed to raise patients' awareness of their drinking, might encourage uptake of referral to specialty treatment. We assessed the feasibility of conducting a randomized trial evaluating the effectiveness of electronic brief intervention on the uptake of specialty treatment in hospital outpatients with likely AD. METHODS: This study was conducted in the outpatient department of a large public hospital in Newcastle, Australia...

Organic photodetectors (OPDs) have attracted great attention due to their advantages including tunable response range, easy processability and flexibility. Various conjugated polymers have been developed for high performing OPDs. Herein, a series of tellurophene-based random copolymers containing two typical electron-withdrawing units naphthalene diimide (NDI) and perylene diimide (PDI) are designed and synthesized. Through varying the ratio of PDI/NDI moieties of the analogous polymers, the opto-physical properties and film morphology, together with photodetector performances are systematically tuned...

A 62-year-old man with no comorbidities presented to the outpatient department of our Institute with a history of extensive vesiculobullous and erosive skin lesions and oral erosions for 2 months and fever for 1 week. A diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris was made based on histopathology and direct immunofluorescence of a skin biopsy specimen, and the patient was started on oral prednisolone 40 mg per day along with intravenous antibiotics (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, gentamicin, and metronidazole) empirically, pending blood and skin swab culture and sensitivity reports...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to determine 2-year changes in mesopic higher-order aberrations (HOAs) and contrast sensitivity (CS) after accelerated corneal cross-linking (CXL) in keratoconus patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this before-after interventional case series, patients with progressive keratoconus were subjected to accelerated CXL (18 mW/cm2, 5 min). Patients were examined with the OPD-Scan III and CVS-1000 grating charts under mesopic conditions at baseline and at 12 and 24 months after CXL...

BACKGROUND: Discordance exists between author self-disclosure and the Open Payments Database in various surgical fields but the effects of this discordance on study design and presentation are unknown. We hypothesized that among ventral hernia publications, 1) discordance exists between industry and physician self-reported conflicts of interest (COI), 2) authors disclose relevant COI, and 3) disclosure and relevant COI affect study favorability. STUDY DESIGN: Double-blinded, prospective, observational study of published manuscripts...
