I congratulate the authors on their efforts to address the complex issue of whether surgical stabilization of rib fractures (SSRF) in the setting of trauma results in improvements in morbidity and mortality. There were 116 patients from their institution identified as candidates for SSRF, with these patients being compared against a random sampling of 1,000 patients from the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) with a similar Injury Severity Score (ISS). The study found that pneumonia and mortality rates were lower for SSRF patient vs those managed nonoperatively, but length of stay, ICU stay, and tracheostomy rates were higher.

Authors: Asato Y, Kamitani T, Ootsuka K, Kuramochi M, Nakanishi K, Shimada T, Takahashi T, Misu T, Aoki M, Fujihara K, Kawabata Y Abstract We herein report the case of a 76-year old man with aquaporin-4-Immunoglobulin-G (AQP4-IgG)-positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD), in whom transient interstitial pulmonary lesions developed at the early stage of the disease. Chest X-ray showed multiple infiltrative shadows in both upper lung fields, and computed tomography revealed abnormal shadows distributed randomly in the lungs. Surgical lung biopsy showed features of unclassifiable interstitial pneumonia, ...
Mortality prediction of pneumonia by severity scores in patients with multiple underlying health conditions has not fully been investigated. This prospective cohort study is to identify mortality-associated un...
aki Nanogels are drug delivery systems that can bypass the blood-brain barrier and deliver drugs to the desired site when administered intranasally. They have been used as a drug delivery platform for the management of brain diseases such as Alzheimer disease, migraine, schizophrenia and depression. nanogels have also been developed as vaccine carriers for the protection of bacterial infections such as influenza, meningitis, pneumonia and as veterinary vaccine carriers for the protection of animals from encephalomyelitis and mouth to foot disease. It has been developed as vaccine carriers for the prevention of lifestyl...
CSE-1034 is a novel antibiotic adjuvant entity (AAE) with proven activity against broad range of multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens causing various bacterial infections. This phase 3 clinical trial was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CSE-1034 therapy for the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) patients of Pneumonia Outcomes Research Team (PORT) risk III –IV.
We examined the association between MI, medication changes, and post-discharge outpatient visits with 30-day readmission in 40,048 Medicare beneficiaries hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure or pneumonia. Beneficiaries with MI were more likely to be readmitted than those without MI (14 vs. 11%). Probability of readmission was 13 and 12% when medications were dropped or added, respectively, versus 11% when no change was made. Probability of readmission also increased with outpatient visits.
Conclusion Serotype data from this study helped in accurate estimation of PCV-13 and PPV-23 protective coverage against serotypes causing IPD in India as 58.7% (95% CI: 53.8, 63.4) and 67.4% (95% CI: 62.7, 71.8) respectively. Penicillin non-susceptibility in meningeal IPD cases is 27.4%. Empirical therapy for meningeal IPD must be cephalosporin in combination with vancomycin since cefotaxime non-susceptibility in meningeal IPD is 9.9%.
