Among the well-known Health care-associated infections (HAIs), surgical site infections (SSIs) contribute to considerable high mortality and morbidity rate, substantial prolongation in hospitalization period and extra expenses in terms of treatment cost. This study was aimed to evaluate the predictive variables associated with surgical site infections, and their clinical consequences. This was a prospective, cross sectional study conducted in the surgical department of tertiary care setting in Karachi, Pakistan...

OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of our study was to evaluate the long-term neurodevelopment outcome after laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). The secondary objective was to identify perinatal prognostic factors associated with neurodevelopmental impairment. METHOD: This was a single-center cohort prospective study carried out in pregnancies complicated by TTTS and treated by laser. Neurodevleopmental assesment included the administration of Ages and Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ), for the infants between 2 and 5 years of age...

INTRODUCTION: Neurological dysfunction is a feared postoperative morbidity of cardiac surgery, an important cause of death and increased spending in hospitals. Its prediction, however, is still uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To assess the applicability of a preoperative score as a predictor of neurological dysfunction after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) under cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). METHODS: Prospective study that evaluated 77 patients who underwent CABG from February to October 2011...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To identify predictive factors of rebleeding and mortality after endoscopic therapy in patients with high risk peptic ulcers. METHODOLOGY: Patients hospitalized due to bleeding from high-risk peptic ulcers (Forrest classes Ia, Ib, IIa and IIb) during a five-year study, received endoscopic hemostatic therapy (diluted epinephrine injection, clipping or both) in addition to proton pump inhibitors. We looked for clinical, endoscopic and laboratory parameters that had influenced rebleeding and mortality in these patients...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: To asses the nutritional status of hospitalised trauma patients and the repercussion on the clinical follow up. METHODS: In a prospective way 161 adult patients admitted to the units of Intensive Care (ICU), General Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthopedics of the Centro de Emergencias Médicas in Asunción, Paraguay, from March 2002 to March 2004 were evaluated at admission by using the Subjective Global Assessment (SGA). Patients were followed to determine length of hospital stay, complications and in-hospital mortality...

BACKGROUND: There is no widespread, well-accepted preoperative risk evaluation system for cardiac operative patients in Japan. We evaluated a scoring system for the prediction of postoperative morbidity and mortality in Japanese cardiac surgical patients. METHODS: Between August 1, 2002 and July 31, 2003 154 patients undergoing heart surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass were scored according to EuroSCORE (European system for cardiac operative risk evaluation). All patients were divided into three risk groups, low risk group (score 0-2), medium risk group (score 3-5), and high risk group (score 6 plus)...
