In the field of mental health, Colombia has developed three GPC; alcohol (GPC-OH), depression (GPC-TDA), and schizophrenia.

OBJECTIVE: To identify existing return-to-work (RTW) guidelines following a sickness absence (SA) due to musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and evaluate their methodological quality. METHODS: We performed a systematic search for RTW guideliness written in English, Spanish and Catalan, that included total or partial information on MSD. The identified guidelines were evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively by seven experts using the validated AGREE method. Standardized scores for each domain were calculated for each of the guidelines, as well as the median of the experts scores for each of the items...

Fractures of the femoral shaft around cemented hip prosthesis have become increasingly common and are difficult to manage. These fractures are often complex and may occur late after the insertion of a cemented prosthesis. They often occur in relation to cortical defects produced by cement and previous surgery. The main classifications already described can be divided into "anatomic" classifications (founded on the level of the fracture on the shaft: Parrish 1964, Ali Khan 1977, Van Elegem 1979) or into "prosthetic" classifications (founded on the level of the fracture with respect to the tip of the prosthesis: Johansson 1981, Bethea 1982, Cooke 1988)...

Obstetric injury comprising tearing of the rectovaginal septum, rectal mucosa, and anal sphincter complex with limited or no involvement of the perineal body may implicate the sudden appearance of an elbow, foot or head in the anal orifice during the second phase of labour. This complex type of obstetric injury is highly uncommon and reports have rarely been published. There are no guideliness as to how to respond to this obstetric emergency and there is no time for consultation. In order to reach clinical recommendations on repair and management of this unexpected obstetric injury for the midwife or obstetrician, we report three such cases...

The proliferation in genetic association studies, and the recurring failure of initially promising findings to robustly replicate, demonstrates the need for stringent standards to ensure the identification of credible associations. The Human Genome Epidemiology Network has recently published intermin guideliness on evidential criteria for genetic association studies. These are reviewed, and their value and importance discussed, as well as the impact these guidelines will have on the conduct of genetic association studies...

Nursing home patinets are becoming more numerous and now form a part of most family physicians' practices. Physicians wishing to do more nursing home care require guideliness for preventing unnecessary nursing home admissions, for scheduling visits, and for making transfers to hospital. Multi-disciplinary conferences and good basic documentation are valuable in the nursing home. Therapy with medication may be a problem, especially if changes in compliance and independence as a therapeutic end-point are not borne in mind...

Approximately 70-80% of all cancer patients receiving chemotherapy experience nausea and/or vomiting. Nausea and vomiting are important side effects of cancer treatment, which can significantly affect a patient's quality of life, leading to poor compliance with further chemotherapy treatment. The main principle of emesis control is prevention. Currently available antiemetic agents corticosteroids, 5-hydroxytriptamine receptor antagonists, and neurokinin-1 antagonists, are used alone or in combination. Antiemetic regimen should be chosen based on the emetogenic potential of the chemotherapy regimen, previous experience with antiemetics, and patient-specific risk factors...

Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in Israel and the main cause for neurological disability among adults. Continued efforts for its prevention and treatment began a long time ago and currently persist. During the last decade, these efforts have resulted in a number of significant breakthroughs. Consequently, several new guidelines and consensus statements from Europe and North America have been published. In Israel, up to date, guidelines have been published only for acute stroke treatment, as well as for its prevention by medical means...

AIM: The aim of the present study was to test the effects of different body on BP readings in a Turkish healthy young adults. BACKGROUND: It is known that many factors influence an individual's blood pressure measurement. However, guideliness for accurately measuring blood pressure inconsistently specify that patient's position and they should keep feet flat on the floor. Although there are more information on arm position in blood pressure measurement, surprisingly little information can be found in the literature with respect to the influence of body position on the blood pressure readings in healthy young people...

A case of monoamniotic twin pregnancy with a peculiar cord complication is presented. Embryologic single-ovum twinning is discussed. Attention is drawn to the fact that this clinical entity may not be as rare as we think. The hazards to the mother and the fetus are emphasized. With the recent advances in modern obstetrics, the possibility of antepartum diagnosis of this condition is more real today than it ever was: and in view of high fetal mortality, neonatal morbidity and increased maternal risk, the guideliness for management of this condition are suggested...

A fatal incident during combined anticonvulsive therapy with ACTH and Dexamethason prompted us to reevaluate our treatment results in 19 children suffering from infantile spasms. We followed Doose's recommendation using Clonazepam as a means of first choice. Failing that, than Dexamethason and Primidone was used. A combination of ACTH, Dexamethason and Primidone was administered to patients failing both treatment courses. Our results question the necessity, the tolerance limit and the efficacy of this treatment schedule...

The stability of reconstituted penicillin V potassium (PVK) when stored in 6-ml plastic oral syringes at various temperatures and protected from light was studied. One batch of PVK was reconstituted with distilled water according to manufacturer's directions (label claim: 125 mg/ml). Samples of 5 ml were stored in plastic oral syringes at 4 C, 25 C, 41 C, 60 C or 75 C and assayed spectrophotometrically and microbiogically at various times. From an initial concentration of 113% of label claim, PVK stored at 4 C (refrigerated) reached 90% of manufacturer's label claim in 11...
