BACKGROUND: Condyloma acuminata currently affects around 1% of sexually active adults, and its incidence is increasing. The coexistence of genital warts (GW) and certain cancers and an association between human papillomavirus (HPV) and various malignancies have been reported. Therefore, we conducted this large national study to analyze the risk of malignancies among men and women with GW in Taiwan. METHODS AND FINDINGS: Between January 2000 and December 2013, approximately 3 million patients were reported to the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan...

BACKGROUND: This study assessed whether cholecystectomy can decrease recurrent cholangitis and all-cause mortality in patients who received endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy and successful clearance of bile duct (BD) stones after gallstone-related cholangitis. METHODS: We analyzed data from the National Health Insurance research database of Taiwan. Patients who had gallstone-related cholangitis and underwent successful endoscopic clearance of BD stones were eligible for enrollment...

BACKGROUND: The elderly are predisposed to septic arthritis (SA) because of the aging nature and increasing comorbidities. SA may in turn increase the long-term mortality in the geriatric patients; however, it remains unclear. We conducted this prospective nationwide population-based cohort study to clarify this issue. METHODS: Using Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD), we identified 1667 geriatric participants (≥ 65 years) with SA and 16,670 geriatric participants without SA matched at a ratio of 1:10 by age, sex, and index date between 1999 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have identified preterm birth and/or small for gestational age (SGA) as risk factors for features of the metabolic syndrome, including high blood pressure, insulin sensitivity and atherosclerosis, occurring later in life, with controversial results. We conducted this population-based cohort study to investigate metabolic outcomes in those with former preterm birth and/or SGA status in Taiwan. METHODS: Data were obtained from Taiwan's universal National Health Insurance Research Database...

BACKGROUND: Evidence has shown a positive correlation between lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and anxiety/depression, but the direction and strength of the association are still unclear. We aimed to test the bidirectional association between LUTS and anxiety/depression using a longitudinal population database. METHODS: Using claims data obtained from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database, 17,489 patients with LUTS and 34,978 non-LUTS matched controls (cohort 1); and 45,707 patients with anxiety, 19,306 patients with depression, 91,414 non-anxiety, and 38,720 non-depression matched controls (cohort 2) were enrolled between 1999 and 2008...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between the use of benzodiazepine receptor agonists (BZRAs) and the risk of pneumonia hospitalization remains inconclusive. This study aimed to explore the association between BZRA use and pneumonia hospitalization in a general population. METHODS: This population-based, nested case-control study used Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database between 2002 and 2012. We only included new users who did not have any BZRA prescriptions on record in the preceding two years and identified 12,002 subjects with pneumonia hospitalization (ICD-9 codes: 480-486) and 12,002 disease risk score matched controls...

BACKGROUND: In-hospital discontinuation of statins has been linked to poorer early stroke outcomes, but the consequences of postdischarge discontinuation or dose reduction of statin treatment are unknown. The objective of this study was to explore the effects of statin discontinuation or statin dose reduction on recurrent stroke risk. METHODS AND RESULTS: We conducted a nationwide cohort study using the data from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database...

Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and Eustachian tube disorders (ETDs) share the same risk factors. The specific aim of this study was to determine the correlation between these 2 conditions and to determine whether treatments for SDB reduce the risk of ETD.This is a retrospective and large population-based cohort study. According to Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database, out of 1,000,000 insured patients, 24,251 patients were newly diagnosed with SDB from year 2000 through 2009. The control group for this study comprised 96,827 patients without SDB who were randomly selected from the same database at a ratio of 1:4, frequency matched for sex, age, and index year of SDB...

BACKGROUND: Studies on the relationship between acute pancreatitis (AP) and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are scant. We conducted a nationwide cohort study to investigate the incidence and risk of ACS in patients with AP. METHODS: We enrolled patients newly diagnosed with AP between 2000 and 2010 from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database and randomly selected a control cohort without a history of AP after frequency-matching for age, sex, and index year at a ratio of 4:1 for each patient with AP...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatic metastases are diagnosed synchronously in 3-14% of patients with gastric cancer, and metachronously in up to 37% of patients following ''curative" gastrectomy. Most patients who have gastric cancer and hepatic metastasis are traditionally treated with palliative chemotherapy. The impact of liver resection is still controversial. We attempted to assess whether liver resection can improve survival in cases of metachronous hepatic metastases from gastric cancer through a nationwide database...

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is associated with various developmental issues that affecting dentition. We aimed to determine whether AR is associated with an increased risk of traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) in Taiwanese individuals. We used the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) to conduct a nested case-control study. We compared an AR cohort with a matched cohort of patients without AR. New TDI cases were determined during our study period. To compare TDI risk between our study cohorts, we used Cox proportional regression analysis, and hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated to quantify the association between AR exposure and TDI risk...

INTRODUCTION: The volume-outcome relationships in failed root canal treatments (RCTs) are rarely studied. Thus, we aimed to examine the association of failed RCTs with dentist and institutional volumes. METHODS: Ambulatory dental claims (2005-2010) of 1 million beneficiaries randomly selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan were used. This study is a population-based cohort study using a marginal Cox proportional hazards regression model in which the outcome variables cluster around individual patients...

In 1999, French legislators asked health insurance funds to develop a système national d'information interrégimes de l'Assurance Maladie (SNIIRAM) [national health insurance information system] in order to more precisely determine and evaluate health care utilization and health care expenditure of beneficiaries. These data, based on almost 66 million inhabitants in 2015, have already been the subject of numerous international publications on various topics: prevalence and incidence of diseases, patient care pathways, health status and health care utilization of specific populations, real-life use of drugs, assessment of adverse effects of drugs or other health care procedures, monitoring of national health insurance expenditure, etc...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To determine the risk of Parkinson's disease (PD) in relation to erectile dysfunction (ED) based on the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan. METHODS: We identified 3,153 patients who were newly diagnosed with ED between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010. A total of 12,612 randomly selected people without ED served as healthy controls. All of the study subjects were followed-up from the index date to the date of PD diagnosis, withdrawal from the National Health Insurance program, or the end of 2012 whichever occurred first...
