This case study is part of a series centered on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Healthcare Safety Network's (NHSN) health care-associated infection (HAI) surveillance definitions. The intent of the case study series is to foster standardized application of the NHSN's HAI surveillance definitions among infection preventionists and accurate determination of HAI events. This specific case study focuses on the definitions found within the surgical site infection (SSI) protocol. It aims to reflect the real life and complex patient scenario surrounding a bloodstream infection that is secondary to an SSI and the application of the Present at the Time of Surgery event detail...

EDITORIAL
Hugo Spinelli, Viviana Martinovich
This interview forms part of a series of dialogues that Salud Colectiva has been holding with key editors in the field, with the purpose of examining the similar difficulties confronted by Latin American journals and the diverse ways the journals have faced these difficulties as a likely starting point for uncovering contextualized solutions. In this interview, carried out in 2015 in the Instituto de Salud Colectiva of the Universidad Nacional de Lanús, Maria Cecília de Souza Minayo speaks to us about the context in which the journal Ciência & Saúde Coletiva emerged, the political disputes existing within the collective health field, and the relevance of debate as a constitutive process of science itself...

Gabriela Cesarman Maus, Guillermo Jose Ruiz Argüelles
Antithrombotic guidelines published by the Chest Journal, the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), are continuously updated as clinically relevant information accumulates. The Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines on antithrombotic therapy and prevention of thrombosis were published in 2012. This year, the topic that has been updated pertains to antithrombotic therapy, specifically addressing prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease. In this paper, I focus on these guidelines regarding the indications or lack thereof for the use of Non-vitamin K-antagonist Oral Anticoagulants (NOACS), also referred to as Direct-acting Oral Anticoagulants (DOACS)...

Chromosomal abnormalities, such as unbalanced translocations and copy number variants (CNVs), are found in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) [Sanders et al. () Neuron 70: 863-885]. Many chromosomal abnormalities, including sub microscopic genomic deletions and duplications, are missed by G-banded karyotyping or Fragile X screening alone and are picked up by chromosomal microarrays [Shen et al. () Pediatrics 125: e727-735]. Translocations involving chromosomes 4 and 8 are possibly the second most frequent translocation in humans and are often undetected in routine cytogenetics [Giglio et al...

In previous articles in the American Journal of Epidemiology (Am J Epidemiol. 2013;177(5):431-442) and American Journal of Public Health (Am J Public Health. 2013;103(10):1895-1901), Masters et al. reported age-specific hazard ratios for the contrasts in mortality rates between obesity categories. They corrected the observed hazard ratios for selection bias caused by what they postulated was the nonrepresentativeness of the participants in the National Health Interview Study that increased with age, obesity, and ill health...

In this reply to the commentary, "A Call for a Statewide Medication Reconciliation Program," published in the October 2016 issue of The American Journal of Managed Care®, authors note that although they agree with the authors' assessment of the problem, they believe there is a proven and scalable solution to improve medication reconciliation that is already available to, and used by, clinicians.

C González-Álvarez, N Ramos-Ibáñez, J Azprioz-Leehan, L Ortiz-Hernández
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Few studies in Latin American paediatric populations have differentiated fat deposits in specific areas, such as intra-abdominal fat (IAF) and subcutaneous abdominal fat (SAF). Research in diverse populations is needed, as patterns of fat accumulation vary by ethnicity. The aim of this study was to determine whether IAF and/or SAF are related to cardiometabolic risk factors, independent of total body fat (TBF), in a group of Mexican schoolchildren. SUBJECTS/METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Mexico City with 94 children aged between 5 and 11 years...
