BACKGROUND: End-of-life care is a prominent consideration in patients on maintenance dialysis, especially when death appears imminent and quality of life is poor. To date, examination of race- and ethnicity-associated disparities in end-of-life care for patients with ESRD has largely been restricted to comparisons of white and black patients. METHODS: We performed a retrospective national study using United States Renal Data System files to determine whether end-of-life care in United States patients on dialysis is subject to racial or ethnic disparity...

Lyme disease has been documented in northern areas of Canada, but the source of the etiological bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (Bbsl) has been in doubt. We collected 87 ticks from 44 songbirds during 2017, and 24 (39%) of 62 nymphs of the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis , were positive for Bbsl. We provide the first report of Bbsl-infected, songbird-transported I. scapularis in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia; Newfoundland and Labrador; north-central Manitoba, and Alberta. Notably, we report the northernmost account of Bbsl-infected ticks parasitizing a bird in Canada...

The Canadian Stroke Best Practice Consensus Statement Acute Stroke Management during Pregnancy is the second of a two-part series devoted to stroke in pregnancy. The first part focused on the unique aspects of secondary stroke prevention in a woman with a prior history of stroke who is, or is planning to become, pregnant. This document focuses on the management of a woman who experiences an acute stroke during pregnancy. This consensus statement was developed in recognition of the need for a specifically tailored approach to the management of this group of patients in the absence of any broad-based, stroke-specific guidelines or consensus statements, which do not exist currently...

DBS is an increasingly offered advanced treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). Neuropsychological assessment is considered to be an important part of the screening for selection of candidates for this treatment. However, no standardised screening procedure currently exists. In this study, we examined the use of our standardised neuropsychological assessment for the evaluation of surgical candidates and to identify risk factors for subsequent decline in cognition and mood. A total of 40 patients were assessed before and after DBS...

OBJECTIVE: During delivery counseling, some women with previous uncomplicated cesarean section (CS) wish mechanical induction of labor (IOL) but they are not accepting the added risk of using ecbolics to induce and/or augment labor. The objective of the study was to assess the safety and efficacy of the isolated use of transcervical Foley's catheter balloon as a mean of mechanical cervical ripening (CR)/IOL and successful ecbolic-less vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cohort study was conducted in two tertiary care maternity hospitals between October 2013 and July 2016 and recruited women with singleton pregnancy and cephalic presentation who had previous one uncomplicated CS and were scheduled for mechanical CR/IOL at term for routine obstetric indications...

AIMS: To determine if previous urinary cultures can predict the organism and susceptibility of subsequent urinary cultures in patients with neurogenic bladder dysfunction. METHODS: We retrospectively identified a sample of neurogenic bladder patients from a tertiary care urology clinic (July 2015-July 2016). We reviewed the patient chart, and then used the electronic laboratory record to identify all urine cultures done in the 2 years prior. We identified sequential culture pairs and determined the concordance of the initial culture organism to the subsequent one and similarly the concordance of the initial culture's antibiotic resistance status to the subsequent culture's one...

INTRODUCTION: Health inequities persist in Canada and the United States. Both countries show differential health status and health care quality by social characteristics, making zip or postal code a greater predictor of health than genetics. Many social determinants of health overlap in the same individuals or communities, exacerbating their vulnerability. Many of the contributing factors and problems are structural and evade simple solutions. METHODS: In March 2017 a binational Canada-US symposium was held in Washington DC involving 150 primary care thought leaders, including clinicians, researchers, patients, and policy makers to address transformation in integrated primary care...
