Prostatectomy via open surgery or transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the standard treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Several patients present contraindication for standard approach, individuals older than 60 years with urinary tract infection, strictures, post-operative pain, incontinence or urinary retention, sexual dysfunction, and blood loss are not good candidates for surgery. Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is emerging as a viable method for patients unsuitable for surgery...

BACKGROUND: Although the hospitalization rate at early period of kidney transplantation (KT) is still high, the association between the hospitalization within 1 year after KT and graft survival is unclear. We investigated the incidence and causes of hospitalization and clinical outcome of the patients hospitalized within 1 year after KT. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 174 KT recipients (KTRs) hospitalized within 1 year after KT between 2013 and 2015. RESULTS: Among them, 84 (48%) KTRs were admitted within 1 year after KT, and the number of hospitalizations was 116...

BACKGROUND: The C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4)-stromal cell-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α) axis regulates function and trafficking of immune cells and the tumour microenvironment. CXCR4 antagonists have been shown to enhance the activity of different anticancer treatments in preclinical models. We assessed the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary phase 1 activity of the CXCR4 antagonist, balixafortide, in combination with eribulin chemotherapy in patients with heavily pretreated, relapsed metastatic breast cancer...

The diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases in older adults in long-term care facilities (LTCFs), particularly nursing facilities, remains a challenge for all health providers who care for this population. This review provides updated information on the currently most important challenges of infectious diseases in LTCFs. With the increasing prescribing of antibiotics in older adults, particularly in LTCFs, the topic of antibiotic stewardship is presented in this review. Following this discussion, salient points on clinical relevance, clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, therapy, and prevention are discussed for skin and soft tissue infections, infectious diarrhea (Clostridium difficile and norovirus infections), bacterial pneumonia, and urinary tract infection, as well as some of the newer approaches to preventive interventions in the LTCF setting...

Urinary tract infections are common in the elderly. They are a frequent reason for antibiotic prescription in nursing homes and hospitals. Doctors are confronted daily to the challenge that it is to diagnose urinary tract infections in older patients. The incidence of asymptomatic bacteriuria and the presence of unspecific symptoms and signs in this population transform guidelines for prevention and treatment into some kind of a battle. In this article we will : 1) make a reminder of the particular features of urinary tract infection in the elderly person ; 2) present the recommendations made by the experts and 3) emphasize the prevention of catheter-related urinary tract infection...

BACKGROUND: Complications such as infections and conditions after immobilization are frequent after severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to compromised bodily functions. Traditionally, bodily functions are core elements in nursing, and therefore nurses in the rehabilitation departments are pivotal in the prevention of complications. Hence, the frequency of complications is an indicator of nursing care quality, which can be included in nursing-sensitive outcome indicators. To do so, it is necessary to know the frequency of the selected complications...

Aerococcus are Gram-positive bacteria that have been historically misidentified using standard techniques. We report a case of a 63-year-old man with septic oligoarthritis caused by Aerococcus urinae (isolated in two ankle synovial fluid cultures and in two blood cultures). Due to the lack of evidence found in a search performed to identify similar cases, a systematic review was conducted with the objective to identify and analyze all documented cases of musculoskeletal infections caused by Aerococcus urinae...
