AIM: To quantify and characterise patients with coexistent septic arthritis (SA) and crystal arthritis (CA) (SACA) in an emergency department (ED) setting. METHODS: A single-centre, retrospective, 10-year observational study was conducted at a major referral centre. Patients with a positive joint aspirate for CA or SA carried out in ED, were included. The Newman criteria were utilised to define SA. RESULTS: Of the 567 patients included in the final analysis, 427 had CA and 140 had a final diagnosis of SA...

AIM: There are no data on the performance of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) in the staging and diagnosis of lung cancer in New Zealand. We aimed to assess the performance of EBUS-TBNA for lung cancer staging and diagnosis at our institution before and after the commencement of regular performance monitoring with comparison to published EBUS quality indicators. METHODS: The performance of EBUS-TBNA in the staging and diagnosis of lung cancer was assessed in two phases...

AIMS: The prevalence of heart failure in New Zealand is increasing. A small number of select patients with predicted poor short-term survival are candidates for advanced heart failure therapies such as transplantation and durable mechanical circulatory support (MCS). The aim of our study was to introduce left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) to the wider clinicians and highlight their role in managing patients with advanced heart failure in New Zealand. METHOD: A retrospective audit of all ventricular assist device (VAD) recipients from January 2005 to December 2022 was conducted...

AIMS: To compare sodium valproate dispensing in women of childbearing age diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in 2014 and 2019 to discover if prescribing practices in Aotearoa New Zealand have changed in response to international recommendations. METHODS: National dispensing data from the Pharmaceutical Collection were linked with diagnostic data from PRIMHD (the national mental health and addiction database) to identify people diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in Aotearoa New Zealand who were dispensed psychotropic medication...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Sheetalpreet Singh, Timothy Jelleyman
AIMS: We described long-term trends in obesity using preschool data from New Zealand and compared rates pre- and post-COVID by key demographic variables. METHODS: Growth data from the B4 School Check (B4SC) information system for the period 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2022 were used to calculate obesity rates. The date 25 March 2020 was the threshold used to compare the rates between pre- and post-COVID periods. Obesity rate ratios for these two periods were calculated for each demographic sub-group...

Childhood obesity is a critical issue in New Zealand that we can no longer afford to ignore. Currently, one in three children is overweight or obese, putting the health of an entire generation at risk if we continue to delay taking action. This issue highlights a significant matter of equity. Māori and Pacific children and those from socio-economically deprived backgrounds are disproportionately affected, reminding us of the systemic barriers rooted in historical factors that exist within our society...

AIM: Regulations announced in mid-2023 aimed to reduce youth vaping by curtailing the availability of cheap high-nicotine e-cigarettes (vapes). This study tested compliance with the new regulations for single-use vapes, which came into force on 21 December 2023. METHODS: A 20-year-old "mystery shopper" visited 96% of specialist vape retailers (SVRs) in Wellington, Porirua, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt (N=74) in January 2024, and observed i) R18 signage, ii) age verification practices, and ii) prices and brands of the cheapest available vaping products...

Economic barriers to accessing support for children with paediatric feeding difficulties can have serious repercussions, including parental stress and emotional fatigue, the child developing a negative relationship with food and health risks such as undernourishment, aspiration pneumonia or choking. We explored the financial and psychological impact experienced by parents and caregivers raising a child with a feeding difficulty in Aotearoa. Respondents were 88 parents or caregivers of a child with a feeding difficulty, living in Aotearoa...

AIM: Cervical cancer is now preventable with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination and HPV screening. However, structural health system barriers in rural areas can inhibit screening access. Inequitable access for rural Māori is exacerbated by social determinants and racism. Pro-equity tools, such as self-taken swabs point of care (POC) testing, now exist. This study aimed to investigate whether POC HPV testing and immediate offer of colposcopy by a mobile colposcopy service is possible at a rural community event...
