REVIEW
Chen Ben David, Ido Solt
The use of ultrasound endovaginal probes is common practice in the fields of gynecology and obstetrics. The vagina serves as a host environment for many microorganisms, contributing greatly to its defensive mechanisms. It is not known whether the introduction of other microorganisms into the vaginal region are detrimental or require intensive preventative measures. Several national ultrasonography societies, as well as the Israel Ministry of Health, have addressed the proper and adequate handling of sonographic endovaginal probes, including the use of high-level disinfecting agents following cleansing and prior to using probe covers between patients...

BACKGROUND: Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) may be under-recognized and under-diagnosed in Israel. Fewer than 10 FASD diagnoses were reported between 1998 and 2007; however, several hundred diagnoses have been made since. Furthermore, less than 10% of surveyed Israeli pediatricians reported adequate knowledge of FASD. OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence of suspected FASD, to establish a database as a starting point for epidemiological studies, and to develop FASD awareness for health, social, and educational services...

BACKGROUND: Burn injury pathophysiology is characterized by severe catabolic state and poor glycemic control. A tight glycemic control protocol using insulin for burn victims has yielded inconsistent mortality and morbidity outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To compare the effect of standard and tight glycemic control protocols on mortality and hypoglycemia events in critical care burn patients. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study of burn victims admitted to the burn intensive care unit between 2005 and 2011...

BACKGROUND: The aggregation of autoimmune diseases in relatives (AID-R) of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) has been reported. OBJECTIVES: To analyze the prevalence of autoimmune diseases in SSc relatives and to compare their features to those of SSc patients without AID-R (controls). METHODS: A case-control analysis compared SSc patients with AID-R to those without AID-R (25 patients) with similar disease duration. RESULTS: Among 322 patients, 25 (7...

BACKGROUND: Since the implementation of a hepatitis A virus (HAV) immunization program for children, which began in 1999 in Israel, HAV infections in the country have occurred mostly in adults. HAV infection in adults is usually symptomatic and may present with hepatic, as well as extrahepatic, abdominal complications. OBJECTIVES: To estimate the prevalence of extrahepatic abdominal complications in patients diagnosed with HAV. METHODS: Most extrahepatic abdominal complications corresponding to HAV infection have ultrasonographic manifestations; therefore, we retrospectively collected findings from ultrasound examinations in addition to laboratory data from adult patients with HAV infection who were admitted to our medical center between 2004 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Frequent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbators are at a higher risk of adverse health outcomes when compared to infrequent exacerbators. A COPD frequent exacerbator phenotype and its definition has been reported. Haptoglobin (Hp) polymorphism has been associated with differing clinical outcomes in cardiovascular and renal disease. The Hp 2-2 phenotype has been found to have bacteriostatic properties, while the Hp 1-1 phenotype was found to be associated with infections...

BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation (CA) is a well-established therapeutic option for patients with recurrent symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF). Data on gender-related differences are limited with regard to baseline characteristics and long-term success rates of catheter ablation for AF. METHODS: We analyzed a cohort of 251 consecutive patients who underwent a first catheter ablation for AF in our institute during the period 2008 through 2015. All patients were followed by regular annual clinic visits, electrocardiograms, periodic 24-48 hour Holter monitoring, and loop recorders...

BACKGROUND: The epidemiology of human brucellosis (HB) continues to evolve. OBJECTIVES: To describe the current epidemiology of HB in Israel in general and in the population at risk. METHODS: We calculated the incidence of HB in Israel for the period 2009-2015, overall and for the Arab population. Data are based on mandatory reporting of HB in Israel, defined clinically with either laboratory confirmation or epidemiological linkage to a laboratory-confirmed case...

BACKGROUND: Dialysate purity contributes to the inflammatory response that afflicts hemodialysis patients. OBJECTIVES: To compare the clinical and laboratory effects of using ultrapure water produced by a water treatment system including two reverse osmosis (RO) units in series, with a system that also includes an ultrapure filter (UPF). METHODS: We performed a retrospective study in 193 hemodialysis patients during two periods: period A (no UPF, 6 months) and period B (same patients, with addition of UPF, 18 months), and a historical cohort of patients treated in the same dialysis unit 2 years earlier, which served as a control group...
