Carrion's disease is a major re-emerging and occupational health disease. This bibliometric study aimed to evaluate scientific production on this disease both globally and in Latin America. SCI-E, MEDLINE/GoPubMed, SCOPUS, ScIELO, and LILACS databases were searched for Carrion's disease-related articles. They were classified according to publication year, type, city and institution of origin, international cooperation, scientific journal, impact factor, publication language, author(s), and H-index. There were 170 articles in SCI-E...

The empirical treatment of urinary infections is complicated by the presence of multiresistance and resistance to extendedspectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs). The objective of this study was to describe the patterns of antibiotic resistance of Escherichia coli strains isolated from urine cultures and the clinical-epidemiological factors associated with the presence of ESBLs in a pediatric and an adult group. A total of 353 strains were collected from the Emergency and Hospitalization Sector of the Cayetano Heredia Hospital over 14 months, and 45...

This cross-sectional study was conducted from November to December of 2013 at the Cayetano Heredia National Hospital in Lima, Peru, to determine the rate of infection with vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE), the resistance genotype, and associated factors. The rate of infection with VRE was 6.2% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.67-10.73) and the resistance genotype isolated from all strains was the vanA gene. The factors associated with colonization with VRE were previous hospitalizations (p = 0.001) and the use of third-generation cephalosporins (p = 0...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. When an acute myocardial infarction occurs, it is necessary to establish secondary prevention measures, which can reduce mortality by 50%. Clinical guidelines state that the optimal medical treatment is based upon four groups of drugs: antiplatelet drugs, statins, beta-blockers and angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin II receptor antagonist. OBJECTIVE: To determine physician compliance to evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on secondary prevention of coronary heart disease...

OBJECTIVE: To validate a rapid urease test (RUT) in Cayetano Heredia Hospital (HCH) in Lima, Peru. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a prospective observational study that included 181 patients over 18 years old with dyspeptic symptoms. All of them underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy at the Department of Gastroenterology at HCH. They had not received, during the last four weeks, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), bismuth or antibiotics.

OBJECTIVES: There has been a sustained and dramatic increase in community-acquired urinary tract infections (CA-UTI) caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing bacteria over recent years. Despite this, no studies have been performed in low- or middle-income countries. The main objective of this case-control study was to describe ESBL CA-UTI and its risk factors. METHODS: Outpatients with CA-UTI seen at the Hospital Cayetano Heredia during 2015 were identified...

OBJECTIVE: We present a descriptive analysis of our cases of sphincterotomy followed by papillary large balloon dilation in a single session (ES-LBD) in the management of difficult to extract calculi, with the objective of assessing rates of therapeutic success and complications in local experience. MATERIAL AND METHODS: ERCP procedures with ES-LBD performed for choledocholithiasis between January 2009 and December 2014 in patients older than 18 years and without preexistent sphincterotomy were selected from records of the Gastroenterology Service at Cayetano Heredia National Hospital...

The Peruvian Andes are the home of 27 species of frogs of the genus Telmatobius, many of which are critically endangered. Illegal trade of adult frogs for purported medical properties likely represents the major threat facing these species. This activity, besides reducing their populations, may contribute to the dissemination of the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), which causes chytridiomycosis, a disease posing a threat to many populations of amphibians. We screened frogs confiscated by the Administration of Forestry and Wildlife in Lima, Peru, for Bd...

INTRODUCTION: Cough is a key symptom of tuberculosis (TB) as well as the main cause of transmission. However, a recent literature review found that cough frequency (number of coughs per hour) in patients with TB has only been studied once, in 1969. The main aim of this study is to describe cough frequency patterns before and after the start of TB treatment and to determine baseline factors that affect cough frequency in these patients. Secondarily, we will evaluate the correlation between cough frequency and TB microbiological resolution...

Severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria is uncommon in South America. Lima, Peru, while not endemic for malaria, is home to specialized centers for infectious diseases that admit and manage patients with severe malaria (SM), all of whom contracted infection during travel. This retrospective study describes severe travel-related malaria in individuals admitted to one tertiary care referral hospital in Lima, Peru; severity was classified based on criteria published by the World Health Organization in 2000. Data were abstracted from medical records of patients with SM admitted to Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia from 2006 to 2011...
