  1. CONTEXT: Acute otitis media (AOM) is the most common diagnosis for which antibiotics are prescribed for children. Previous trials that have evaluated a "wait-and-see prescription" (WASP) for antibiotics, with which parents are asked not to fill the…
  2. Background: The role and dose of anticoagulants in thromboprophylaxis for patients with cancer receiving chemotherapy through central venous catheters (CVCs) is controversial. We therefore assessed whether warfarin reduces catheter-related…
  3. Warfarin is often used in patients with systolic heart failure (HF) to prevent adverse outcomes. However, its long-term effect remains controversial. The objective of this study was to determine the association of warfarin use and outcomes in…
  4. BACKGROUND: We examined warfarin use at discharge (according to Congestive heart failure, Hypertension, Age>75 years, Diabetes, Prior Stroke/transient ischemic attack score and bleeding risk) and its association with 6-month death or myocardial…
  5. Migrant sensory neuropathy (Wartenberg's migrant sensory neuritis) is characterized by sudden numbness in the distribution of one or multiple cutaneous nerves. To study disease course and outcome, we prospectively followed 12 patients who presented…
  6. BACKGROUND: Controversy exists regarding the optimal treatment for patients with displaced intracapsular fractures of the proximal femur. The recognised treatment alternatives are arthroplasty and internal fixation. The principal criticism of…
  7. Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) is a contrast mechanism that exploits exchange-based magnetization transfer (MT) between solute and water protons. CEST effects compete with direct water saturation and conventional MT processes, and…
  8. The parameters of wave intensity analysis are calculated from incremental changes in pressure and velocity. While it is clear that forward- and backward-traveling waves induce incremental changes in pressure, not all incremental changes in pressure…
  9. Unicondylar knee arthroplasty is an attractive alternative to total knee arthroplasty for selected patients with osteoarthritis. Mobile bearing knee designs have been developed to improve knee kinematics, lower contact stresses and reduced wear of…
  10. Highly cross-linked polyethylene (HXLPE) was developed to reduce wear of articular bearing surface in total hip arthroplasty patients. Several studies have shown reduced wear of HXLPE compared with conventional polyethylene; however, these studies…
  11. Clerkship directors have an opportunity to develop consensus on learning objectives for women's health issues and to develop curricula that cross disciplinary boundaries. A collaborative interdisciplinary approach assures proper sequencing of…
  12. Objectives: To investigate whether weekly determination of Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data (RAPID) scores 3 and 4 in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) improved the assessment of disease activity and detected additional activity peaks…
  13. BACKGROUND: The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of weekly bortezomib in the treatment of patients with recurrent/refractory multiple myeloma. METHODS: A total of 40 patients with multiple myeloma who had…
  14. Objectives To compare weight-bearing asymmetry (WBA) for people with unilateral knee osteoarthritis (OA) with that for healthy adults of similar age. In addition, associations between WBA and clinical measures of knee impairment and functional…
