AIM OF THE STUDY: To report the current activity of intestinal transplantation in Europe (EU) and Unites States of America (USA), underlining outcomes in the last 5 years and discussing possible trends. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data review of results was performed through analysis of ITR and UNOS registries, Eurotransplant and newsletter transplant reports, congress abstracts, international published literature, personal communications and hospital web sites. RESULTS: The absence in Europe of a sole organization collecting donors and the presence of many low-volume centers (less than 5 cases/year) makes the difference with USA: in the last 5 years (2010-2014), 222 intestinal/multivisceral transplants have been performed in EU countries (most of them in the UK), while in USA, the number of transplants achieved 634 procedures in the same period of time...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Mixed urinary incontinence (MUI), defined as mixed symptoms of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and overactive bladder (OAB), is a difficult entity if conservative treatment has failed. Cure rates are low compared with SUI, particularly the OAB component, may deteriorate after sling insertion. Bulking agents pose an appealing alternative for the treatment of MUI. They have shown beneficial effect in small case studies, but larger series are lacking. The aim of this prospective study was an analysis of treatment efficacy and safety profile of the bulking agent, Bulkamid, in female patients with MUI...

International migration has doubled worldwide since 1970, and nurses are increasingly becoming a part of this trend. In 2008, approximately 5.6% of RN positions were filled by nurses educated in other countries. One of the critical issues is the transition of these immigrated nurses to the U.S. health care system and acculturation in a new society. Continuing education is necessary to promote adjustment and provide for a successful transition while ensuring quality patient care. The life patterns model provides a framework to describe the challenges and potential mediators in the transition process...

BACKGROUND: Up to now indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) followed by an antigen-specific assay specific for proteinase 3 (PR3) or myeloperoxidase (MPO) has been the standard method for the detection of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA). The development of more sensitive and highly specific PR3-ANCA and MPO-ANCA immunoassays for the diagnosis of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) has raised doubts about the two-stage diagnostic strategy currently recommended for ANCA detection...

This paper explores the role of the curator in hospitals. The arts play a significant role in every society; however, recent studies indicate a neglect of the aesthetic environment of healthcare. This international study explores the complex role of the curator in modern hospitals. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten arts specialists in hospitals across five countries and three continents for a qualitative, phenomenological study. Five themes arose from the data: (1) Patient involvement and influence on the arts programme in hospital (2) Understanding the role of the curator in hospital (3) Influences on arts programming in hospital (4) Types of arts programmes (5) Limitations to effective curation in hospital...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Levator avulsion is a common consequence of vaginal childbirth. It is associated with symptomatic female pelvic organ prolapse and is also a predictor of recurrence after surgical correction. Skills and hardware necessary for diagnosis by imaging are, however, not universally available. Diagnosis of avulsion may benefit from an elevated index of suspicion. The aim of this study was to examine the predictive value of the International Continence Society Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (ICS POP-Q) for the diagnosis of levator avulsion by tomographic 4D translabial ultrasound...
