Gustav Jarl, Roy Tranberg
Background: Non-removable knee-high devices are the gold standard to treat diabetic foot ulcers located on the plantar forefoot, but they immobilize the ankle, which restricts daily life activities and has negative effects on joint functioning. Objective: To investigate the feasibility of sealing a therapeutic shoe to off-load and heal diabetic forefoot ulcers. Design: A case series of seven men with type 2 diabetes and a metatarsal head ulcer were prescribed therapeutic shoes and custom-made insoles. The shoe was sealed with a plastic band...

OBJECTIVE: Older patients who are at risk of poor healthcare outcomes should be recognised early during hospital admission to allow appropriate interventions. It is unclear whether routinely collected data can identify high-risk patients. The aim of this study was to define current practice with regard to the identification of older patients at high risk of poor healthcare outcomes on admission to hospital. RESULTS: Interviews/focus groups were conducted to establish the views of 22 healthcare staff across five acute medicine for older people wards in one hospital including seven nurses, four dieticians, seven doctors, and four therapists...

Secondary complications of spinal cord injury (SCI) are a burden to afflicted individuals and the rest of society. However, there is limited evidence of the economic burden or cost of complications in SCI populations in Canada, which is necessary for comparative economic analyses and decision analytic modeling of possible solutions to these common health problems. Comparative economic analyses can inform resource allocation decisions, but the outputs are only as good as the inputs. In this article, new evidence of the excess or incremental costs of urinary tract infection (UTI) and pressure ulceration (PU) in acute traumatic SCI from an exploratory case series analysis of admissions to a Level I specialized Canadian spine facility (2008-2013) is presented...

Diabetic foot ulcers may result in loss of an extremity and may even lead to mortality. The use of comprehensive foot care programs which include early screening and evaluation of problems, foot care education, preventive therapy and referral to specialists has been shown to reduce amputation rates by 49-85 [percent]. A 51-year-old woman with Type 2 diabetes under surveillance for nine months was referred from the emergency department. She presented with an entirely inflamed right foot with ulcer covering two-thirds proximal of the foot for 30 days' duration...

Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a prevalent disease worldwide; an estimated one third of the world's population is infected and 2015 data from the World Health Organization show 10 million people had an active infection. Although TB often is cited as a disease that most commonly occurs in underdeveloped countries, the evolution of drug-resistant forms of TB and infection sensitivity of immunocompromised individuals have made this disease a focal point for indus- trialized countries as well. When TB is spread, it commonly affects the lungs, but it can infect any organ of the body...

BACKGROUND: In the industrialized world, approximately 1-1.5% of the population has received treatments for skin lesions. In the 1990s, a polymeric barrier film called the No Sting Barrier Film (NSBF) was developed as an alternative to petrolatum-based ointments and zinc oxide formulas. To date, few studies have explored the effectiveness of NSBF in protecting skin integrity. AIMS: To map the methods, fields and outcomes used to produce evidence on NSBF effectiveness...

BACKGROUND: Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter is a growing concern and has been identified as a serious threat by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, there is little information on MDR Acinetobacter in individuals with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/Ds). Therefore, the objective of this study was to identify risk factors for, and assess outcomes of, MDR Acinetobacter in veterans with SCI/Ds. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study from January 1, 2012-December 31, 2013, using national Veterans Affairs medical encounter and microbiology data...

Diabetic foot, one of the most common and debilitating manifestations of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), is the leading cause of worldwide non-traumatic lower extremity amputations. Diabetics who are at risk of ulceration are currently mainly identified by a thorough clinical examination of the feet, which typically does not show clear symptoms during the early stages of disease progression. In this study, we used a non-linear dynamics tool, gait entropy (GaitEN), in addition to traditional linear gait analysis methods, to investigate gait alterations amongst diabetic patients with combinations of three types of T2DM related complications: retinopathy, diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and nephropathy...

BACKGROUND: The bio-psychosocial model of spinal cord injury (SCI) highlights that psychosocial care is of equal importance as physical rehabilitation, and should be offered in the earlier stages of inpatient rehabilitation. AIM: This systematic review aimed to identify interventional research regarding psychosocial care for people with SCI during inpatient rehabilitation and synthesize the evidence of the effects and characteristics of these studies. METHODS: A systematic search of relevant literature published between 1985 to July 2016 was conducted with six databases (Scopus, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Science Citation Index Expanded, PsycINFO, and the China Academic Journal Full-text Database)...

REVIEW
Z Xu, J Li, H Wang, G Xu
For many years, the coexistence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and atherosclerotic diseases in a disproportional number of patients has inspired the presumption that a causal relationship exists between the conditions. This presumption was evidenced by the simultaneously declining epidemics of duodenal ulcer and coronary artery diseases in the United States in the past 40 years, and was further evidenced by the detection of H. pylori and their DNA in atherosclerotic plaques. Suggested mechanisms underlying this possible causality include intensified inflammatory stress, dyslipidemia, abnormal glucose metabolism, arterial stiffness, increased blood pressure and malnutrition...

Mandibular midline distraction (MMD) is a relatively new surgical technique for correction of transverse discrepancies of the mandible. This study assesses the amount and burden of complications in MMD. A retrospective cohort study was performed on patients who underwent MMD between 2002 and 2014. Patients with congenital deformities or a history of radiation therapy in the area of interest were excluded. Patient records were obtained and individually assessed for any complications. Complications were graded using the Clavien-Dindo classification system (CDS)...
