BACKGROUND: AtrioVentricular (AV) and InterVentricular (VV) delay optimization can improve ventricular function in Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) and is usually performed by means of echocardiography. St Jude Medical has developed an automated algorhythm which calculates the optimal AV and VV delays (QuickOpt™) based on Intracardiac ElectroGrams, (IEGM), within 2 min. So far, the efficacy of the algorhythm has been tested acutely with standard lead position at right ventricular (RV) apex...

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) was first detected in Sri Lanka in 1992.Local disease is caused by a genetically different variant of Leishmania donovani. Early case detection and management is the mainstay of L. donovani control. High degree of clinical suspicion is critical but a clinical diagnostic tool is not available for leishmaniasis. Current study described, for the first time, a two-staged clinical algorhythm that facilitates screening of CL in Sri Lanka by primary health care worker in stage 1 and management by medical professional in stage 2...

Christian Sittel
Pathologies in the larynx and trachea in the pediatric age can be characterized in 4 main groups: airway stenosis, acute infections, benign neoplasia and foreign body aspiration. In this review main diagnostic strategies and therapeutic options are presented. Laryngomalazia is the most frequent condition of supraglottic stenosis. The term supraglottoplasty summarizes all different techniques used for it's repair using an endoscopic approach. Glottic stenosis is rare in children. Usually a compromise between voice preservation and airway restoration has to be sought...

Giorgina Piccoli
The recent guideline of the Canadian Society of Nephrology for timing the initiation of chronic dialysis may be seen as a "paradigm shift", meaning, according to the Kuhns theory, the development of a different viewpoint. The guideline is based on a careful review of the literature, with primary emphasis on patient survival and quality of life. Hence, the Authors choose qualitative keywords (intention -to-defer, in place of the intention-to-start-early), but also a qualitative process for deciding the start of dialysis, by providing an intentionally concise list of signs and symptoms not reducible to numbers, such as the presence of uremic symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Multiple cerebral cavernous malformations (mCCMs) are known as potentially epileptogenic lesions. Treatment might be multimodal. Management of patients with mCCMs and epilepsy is challenging. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate (1) algorhythmic therapeutic sequences in patients with epilepsy associated to mCCMs, (2) whether there are predictive parameters to anticipate the development of drug-resistant epilepsy, and (3) seizure after epilepsy surgery compared to conservatively-treated drug-resistant patients...

We present description of ECG by Holter monitoring in a 26-year-old patient with double-chamber implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). Fragments of record show atrio-ventricular block, which may suggests ICD dysfunction. However, this is working mode of ICD having minimal ventricular pacing algorhythm.

The treatment and management guideline for Parkinson disease (PD) was revised based on new findings and published in 2011. The clinical questions and answers-format was accepted in this new guideline for the convenience of busy clinicians. For the early treatment of PD, the agonist first algorhythm was not changed, but at the same time, it was emphasized that the under-treatment of motor symptoms should be avoided. For the treatment of motor complications, several new drugs were added and classified. Recent progresses in the management of non-motor symptoms were described in more detail...

Objectives: To study the prevalence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in five different hospitals of Kathmandu Valley. Materials and Methods: An analytical cross sectional study was designed from May 2007 to September 2007 in which prevalence of ADR was calculated. A total of 37 cases of ADRs were taken from 4287 patients and 10% of the remaining population without ADRs i.e. 425 out of 4250 patients was selected randomly. ADRs were analyzed as per the structured questionnaires designed by Canadian adverse drug reaction monitoring program...

Natalio Fejerman
This is an update on severe epilepsies in infancy that are associated with genetic etiologies, either chromosomal abnormalities or gene mutations. These severe epilepsies may present the clinical and electroencephalographic phenotype of the so called epileptic encephalopathies, although a significant number of cases do not comply with the criteria to be included among the already known categories, as classified by the International League Against Epilepsy. Several chromosomal abnormalities, with or without a characteristic physical phenotype, are associated with epileptic encephalopathies in infants...

Women with a history of breast cancer are common at centers for cancer genetic risk all over Europe. Given limited health care resources, managing this demand, while achieving good value for money coming from health services, is generally a major challenge. This paper recapitulates and summarizes the available methods of the risk assessment of familial breast cancer. After a systematic review of the literature Gail-model, Claus-model and BOADICEA-model were selected, as well as softwares (LINKAGE software; MENDEL v3...

Reconstruction of complex mid back wounds is challenging due to the patient comorbidities and scarcity of reliable regional flap alternatives. Four consecutive cases treated with perforator based V-Y advancement flaps are reported. An effective repair was achieved in all the patients and the mean follow up period was 28 months. Our results indicate the efficacy of adipocutaneous flaps in complex spinal soft tissue repair and may help to refine the relevant algorhythm.

Approximately one quarter of all patients with leg ulcers do not have a "vascular" ulcer, i.e. an ulcer of venous, mixed venous-arterial, or arterial origin. The differential diagnosis encompasses approximately 70 entities, amongst a selection of particular clinical relevance. Martorell hypertensive-ischemic leg ulcer and its two "imitators" pyoderma gangrenosum and necrotizing vasculitides of the skin, necrotic skin infections (e.g., ecthyma, tropical ulcer, and others), chronic wounds caused by physical trauma (contusion (deep dissecting hematoma), radiotherapy or cryotherapy of skin cancers at the leg), leg ulcers in the context of congenital diseases (e...

Infectious complications after endoprosthesis of the main joints, performed for tumors of the bones, are registered in 9.5% of observations. These complications occur more frequently in patients, to whom the conduction of supportive antitumoral therapy is indicated. Algorhythm, including the staged performance of conservative and surgical interventions, was elaborated for treatment of such complications. Conservative measures had included active draining of the wound, systemic and local antibacterial therapy, and while applying the surgical treatment--using of spacers and other methods of reconstruction (dystractional and bone-plasty one)...

BACKGROUND: Toxoplasmosis causes loss of life, cognitive and motor function, and sight. A vaccine is greatly needed to prevent this disease. The purpose of this study was to use an immmunosense approach to develop a foundation for development of vaccines to protect humans with the HLA-A03 supertype. Three peptides had been identified with high binding scores for HLA-A03 supertypes using bioinformatic algorhythms, high measured binding affinity for HLA-A03 supertype molecules, and ability to elicit IFN-γ production by human HLA-A03 supertype peripheral blood CD8+ T cells from seropositive but not seronegative persons...
