OBJECTIVES: The mortality of patients with Clostridum Dificile Associated Disease (CDAD) requiring surgery continues to be very high. Loop ileostomy (LI) was introduced as an alternative procedure to total colectomy (TC) for CDAD by a single center study. To date, no reproducible results have been published. The objective of this study is to compare these two procedures in a multicentric approach to help the surgeon decide what procedure is best suited for the patient in need. METHODS: This was a retrospective multicenter study conducted under the sponsorship of the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST)...

Importance: External store-and-forward (SAF) teledermatology systems operate separately from the primary health record and have many limitations, including care fragmentation, inadequate communication among clinicians, and privacy and security concerns, among others. Development of internal SAF workflows within existing electronic health records (EHRs) should be the standard for large health care organizations for delivering high-quality dermatologic care, improving access, and capturing other telemedicine benchmark data...

Implicit solvation calculations based on a Stern-layer corrected size-modified Poisson-Boltzmann (SMPB) model are an effective approach to capture electrolytic effects in first-principles electronic structure calculations. For a given salt solution, they require a range of ion-specific parameters, which describe the size of the dissolved ions as well as thickness and shape of the Stern layer. Out of this defined parameter space, we show that the Stern layer thickness expressed in terms of the solute's electron density and the resulting ionic cavity volume completely determine ion effects on the stability of neutral solutes...

S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) has a sulfonium ion with three distinct C-S bonds. Conventional radical SAM enzymes use a [4Fe-4S] cluster to homolytically cleave the C5',adenosine-S bond of SAM to generate a 5'-deoxyadenosyl radical, which catalyz-es various downstream chemical reactions. Radical SAM en-zymes involved in diphthamide biosynthesis, such as Pyrococ-cus horikoshii Dph2 (PhDph2) and yeast Dph1-Dph2 instead cleave the Cγ,Met-S bond of methionine to generate the 3-amino-3-carboxylpropyl radical. We here show that radical SAM enzymes can be tuned to cleave the third C-S bond to the sulfonium sulfur by changing the structure of SAM...

INTRODUCTION: Only 15% of lung cancer cases present with potentially curable disease. Therefore, there is large interest in a fast, non-invasive tool to detect lung cancer earlier. Exhaled breath analysis by electronic nose technology measures volatile organic compounds (VOC's) in exhaled breath which are associated with lung cancer. METHODS: The diagnostic accuracy of the Aeonose™ is currently being studied in a multi-centre, prospective study in 210 subjects suspected for lung cancer, where approximately half will have a confirmed diagnosis and the other half will have a rejected diagnosis of lung cancer...

Time spent by physicians is a key resource in health care delivery. This study used data captured by the access time stamp functionality of an electronic health record (EHR) to examine physician work effort. This is a potentially powerful, yet unobtrusive, way to study physicians' use of time. We used data on physicians' time allocation patterns captured by over thirty-one million EHR transactions in the period 2011-14 recorded by 471 primary care physicians, who collectively worked on 765,129 patients' EHRs...

The United States Food and Drug Administration will consider the expansion of coverage indications for some drugs and devices based on real-world data. Real-world data accrual in patient registries has historically been via manual data entry from the medical chart at a time distant from patient care, which is fraught with systematic error. The efficient automated transmission of data directly from electronic health records is replacing this labor-intensive paradigm. However, real-world data collection is unfamiliar...

A multi-technique analysis was performed on a range of biochar materials derived from secondary organic resources and aimed at sustainable recovery and re-use of wastewater phosphorus (P). Our purpose was to identify mechanisms of P capture in biochar and thereby inform its future optimisation as a sustainable P fertiliser. The biochar feedstock comprised pellets of anaerobically digested sewage sludge (PAD) or pellets of the same blended in the ratio 9:1 with ochre sourced from minewater treatment (POCAD), components which have limited alternative economic value...

The detection of microRNA plays an important role in early cancer diagnosis. Herein, a dual-mode electronic biosensor was developed for microRNA-21 (miRNA-21) detection based on gold nanoparticle-decorated MoS2 nanosheet (AuNPs@MoS2). A classical DNA "sandwich" structure was employed to construct MoS2-based electrochemical sensor, including capture DNA, target miRNA-21 and DNA-modified nanoprobe. [Fe(CN)6](3-/4-) and [Ru(NH3)6](3+) were selected as electrochemical indicators to monitor the preparation process and evaluate the performance of MoS2-based electrochemical biosensor by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV), respectively...

OBJECTIVE Complications have been used extensively to facilitate evaluation of craniosynostosis practice. However, description of complications tends to be nonstandardized, making comparison difficult. The authors propose a new pragmatic classification of complications that relies on prospective data collection, is geared to capture significant morbidity as well as any "near misses" in a systematic fashion, and can be used as a quality improvement tool. METHODS Data on complications for all patients undergoing surgery for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis between 2010 and 2015 were collected from a prospective craniofacial audit database maintained at the authors' institution...

BACKGROUND: The efficiency and acceptance of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) can increase if they reuse medical data captured during health care delivery. High heterogeneity of the existing legacy data formats has become the main barrier for the reuse of data. Thus, we need to apply data modeling mechanisms that provide standardization, transformation, accumulation and querying medical data to allow its reuse. OBJECTIVES: In this paper, we focus on the interoperability issues of the hospital information systems (HIS) and CDSS data integration...
