An economic evaluation of vector control in the age of a dengue vaccine

DiscussionEconomic evaluation of the first-ever dengue vaccine is ongoing. However, even under very optimistic assumptions about a highly targeted and low cost immunization strategy, our results suggest that sustained vector control will continue to play an important role in mitigating the impact of environmental change and urbanization on human health. If additional benefits for the control of otherAedes borne diseases, such as Chikungunya, yellow fever and Zika fever are taken into account, the investment case is even stronger. High-burden endemic countries should proceed to map populations to be covered by sustained vector control.

A 9-year-old incompletely vaccinated girl was admitted with pharyngotonsillitis caused by diphtheria. On day 9 of her illness, renal and cardiac failure occurred. Unfortunately, she died within hours of admission to intensive care with cardiogenic shock despite the vigorous supportive care delivered to her and the administration of antibiotics and diphtheria antitoxin. The suboptimal dose of...

During this public health crisis, several nucleic acid testing (NAT)–based Zika assays were submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization. The FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, in collaboration with...

ConclusionAs expected, the postoperative hip function is similar, but patients’ preference is not. The latter result might be true or possibly influenced by preoperative psychological factors and mental health. The DAA and the posterolateral or direct lateral approaches have shown to lead to a similar hip function, but a majority of patients subjectively prefer the DAA.Level of evidenceIII.

ConclusionThe incidence of complications is similar to that reported in open surgery and discretely larger than laparoscopic, however type I complications were the most frequent.The high incidence of probably due to what we are is a school hospital and surgeons are training period.

Purpose: The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) on L5-S1 level for restitution of distal segmental lordosis and to investigate its consequences on spino-pelvic parameters and the global sagittal balance. Overview of Literature: Lumbar surgery must be adapted to the spinal morphology in order to restore an adequate relation between pelvic and spinal parameters and especially to the pelvic incidence. Methods: An observational, prospective s...

Intracranial bleeding is common after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and can cause brain herniation and death. We aimed to assess the effects of tranexamic acid in patients with TBI.MethodsThis randomised, placebo-controlled trial was done in 175 hospitals in 29 countries. Adults with TBI who were within 3 h of injury, had a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score of 12 or lower or any intracran...
