CONCLUSION: The results indicate that 4 per cent boric acid solution and vinegar with water (1:1) are potent inhibitors of biofilms from methicillin-resistant S aureus and quinolone-resistant P aeruginosa, and provide safe pH levels for avoiding ototoxicity.

CONCLUSION: Pre-operative combined magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography helped predict disease in the frontal sinus better than computed tomography alone. A close working relationship between the ENT and radiology departments is important for accurate tumour localisation. PMID: 29909780 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report on the results of a 6-year French tricenter study on 1,124 cases of fetal USDA for whom a comprehensive molecular study was performed for CF.Results: Among the 37 CF fetuses, 5 (13.5%) presented with isolated NVFGB at ultrasound (US) examination at 24 –31 weeks of gestation. This sign was more frequently observed in CF fetuses than in non-CF fetuses, with a likelihood ratio of 2.7. The genotypes included three c.1521_1523del (F508del) homozygous cases and two compound heterozygous cases for a frequent and a rare CF-causing variant.Discussion: These observations highlight the importance to report on the pres...

By CHARLES SILVER and DAVID A.HYMAN Today THCB is happy to publish a piece reflecting the learnings from Charles Silver and David Hyman’s forthcoming book Overcharged: Why Americans Pay Too Much For Health Care, shortly to be published by the libertarian leaning Cato Institute. In subsequent weeks we’ll feature commentary from the right (Michael Cannon) and from the left (Andy Slavitt) about the book and its proposals. For now please give your views in the comments–Matthew Holt There are many reasons why the United States is “the most expensive place in the world to get sick.” In Par...

Doctors in Scotland believe a woman’s large tattoo on her leg may have been the cause of her unexplained inflammation and severe leg pain. The authors of a report on the woman’s case, published in BMJ Case Reports, say it is a reminder to physicians that they should be mindful of their patients’ tattoos if they encounter unusual and unexplained symptoms. The 31-year-old woman was suffering a condition called inflammatory myopathy, which affected her left leg and caused pain severe enough to disrupt her sleep. The woman had a double lung transplant in 2009, and was taking drugs to suppress her immune syst...

I have blogged in the past about provider-to-provider teleconsults (see:The Need for More Research in Provider-to-Provider Telemedicine). This type of telemedicine is often overlooked or underreported. A recent article addressed how video consults have improved survival rates for liver disease patients (see:Video consults boost survival rates for liver disease patients by 54 percent). Below is an excerpt from the article:Patients of primary care physicians who participated in video consultations with liver disease specialists had a 54 percent higher survival rate than patients whose PCPs didn ’t leverage th...

Conclusion: This study describes the first MRI-compatible hydrodynamic simulator of CSF motion in the cervical spine with anatomically realistic NR. NR were found to impact CSF velocity profiles to a great degree. Significance: CSF hydrodynamics are thought to be altered in craniospinal disorders such as Chiari I malformation. MRI scanning techniques and protocols can be used to quantify CSF flow alterations in disease states. The provided in vitro models can be used to test the reliability of these protocols across MRI scanner manufacturers and machines.
