BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There are a lot of venous thromboembolism risk assessment models with the aim of predicting the individual risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), although most have not been externally validated. The objective of our study was to analyse the concordance among the Padua, PRETEMED, IMPROVE and MEDENOX scores. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Observational cohort study with 602 patients admitted to Medical Services of the Hospital Universitario Santa Lucía...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the measures to prevent spontaneous preterm birth (excluding preterm premature rupture of membranes)and its consequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The PubMed database, the Cochrane Library and the recommendations from the French and foreign obstetrical societies or colleges have been consulted. RESULTS: In France, premature birth concerns 60,000 neonates every year (7.4 %), half of them are delivered after spontaneous onset of labor...

OBJECTIVES: The safety of paternal use of anti-tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) agents immediately prior to conception is practically unknown. On the basis of nationwide data from Danish health registries, we examined the association between paternal use of anti-TNF-α agents within 3 months before conception and adverse birth outcomes. METHODS: This nationwide cohort study is based on data from all women who had a live born singleton child in Denmark from 1 January 2007 through 2013...

UNLABELLED: The aim was to assess the incidence of complications related to skin-to-skin contact (SSC) in newborns with an umbilical venous catheter (UVC). We carried out a prospective follow-up study of all UVCs in a level 3 unit where SSC is systematic. A total of 333 babies were included (mean gestational age of 31.3 weeks (24-41), mean birth weight of 1618 g (454-4900). Two hundred sixty-three babies (78.9 %) had SSC, at a mean postnatal age of 24 h (3-144 h). Two babies presented with a significant umbilical bleeding, all in the first 3 h, before SSC...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Hospitalized patients are a population at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). The PRETEMED-2007 clinical practice guidelines help identify high-risk medical patients who are suited to thromboprophylaxis. These guidelines therefore provide a standard for prophylaxis in such patients. We evaluated the risk of VTE and the adjustment of thromboprophylaxis to the standards of the PRETEMED-2007 guidelines in patients hospitalized in internal medicine departments...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the incidence of VTE in hospitalized medical patients and prophylaxis applied in accordance with the 8th ACCP guidelines and the National PRETEMED guide for thromboprophylaxis. METHODS: Discharge lists were reviewed to select the first consecutive 20 patients, aged ≥ 40 years and admitted ≥ 4 days to the Internal Medicine Departments of 79 Spanish hospitals. Exclusion criteria were: admission for diagnostic procedures, VTE or surgical illness, or care during hospitalization provided by the local investigator...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate the use of venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in hospitalized medical patients using 2 clinical practice guidelines and to analyze the agreement between them. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional study of medical services in a third level hospital. We calculated the thromboembolic risk and the thromboprophylaxis adequacy by implementing the recommendations of viii conference of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and PRETEMED guide as well as their agreement...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate calcium, iron and magnesium intakes of preterm infants' mothers before and during pregnancy and calcium, iron and magnesium levels of preterm infants and their mothers in order to provide basis for studying the effect of nutritional factors on the occurrence of prematurity. METHODS: Two hundred and forty matched cases (preterm infants and their mothers) and controls (term infants and their mothers) were recruited. A nutritional survey of calcium, iron and magnesium intakes was performed in the mothers before and during pregnancy...

OBJECTIVES: Newborns, particularly preterm infants, have limited antioxidant protective capacity. The organism's defence system against reactive oxygen species including vitamins A, E and C, trace element selenium (Se) and enzymes, such as catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) are essential components of the antioxidant system against the oxidative injury to the cellular membranes of erythrocytes. In this study, our aim was to compare the oxidant nitric oxide (total plasma nitrite level as an indicator of nitric oxide (NO)), antioxidant vitamins and selenium and erythrocyte antioxidant enzymes in premature babies with hyperbilirubinaemia with healthy preterms...

Twenty-one preterm infants (with a mean gestational age and birth weight of 29.3 weeks and 1288.6 g) and nine pretem infants (with a mean gestational age and birth weight of 29.6 weeks and 1153.1 g) were treated with an enteral preparation of indomethacin and with intravenous indomethacin, respectively, for the closure of hemodynamically significant ductus arteriosus. The patients received three doses of either oral indomethacin capsule (Endol, Deva, Turkey) or intravenous indomethacin (Confortid, Dumex GmBH, Germany) in a dose of 0...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that women with multiple gestations are at increased risk of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes when compared with singletons. DESIGN: From January 1999 to December 2000, all multiple pregnancies delivering > 28 weeks gestation in the labour ward of Mother and Child Health (MCH) Centre, Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad, were taken as cases. Singleton pregnancy > or = 28 weeks gestation period delivered immediately after each case was chosen as control...
