The prevalence and root causes of surgical site infections in public versus private hospitals in Ethiopia: a retrospective observational cohort study.

Conclusion: The prevalence of surgical site infections was high, and significant differences were also observed between public and private hospitals. Clean-contaminated and dirty wounds, prolonged operation, and length of hospital stay were predictors of surgical site infections among patients in public hospitals, whereas clean-contaminated wound and rural dwellings were predicted the infections among patients operated in the private hospital.

CONCLUSIONS: VIS was feasible in clinical routine. Compared to the other evaluated blocks, the VIS for the infragluteal access to the sciatic nerve was rated worst. VIS is found to be worse in obese patients. Further research is needed to evaluate VIS and its suitability for specific questions as for instance anesthetists' learning curves, comparison of different patient populations, ultrasound devices or different nerve blocks.

Authors: Fraser J Abstract Invasive fungal infections are becoming increasingly more prevalent in clinical practice. This corresponds with more patients living with immunosuppression and improved techniques to identify fungal infections. Subcutaneous fungal masses can often masquerade and imitate common dermatological lesions such as cysts. Querying a fungal aetiology of a mass is important, as fungal elements can be missed on histological examination, and special stains may be needed to identify spores and hyphae to make the diagnosis. Skin trauma with inoculation of fungal elements contained in soil and vegetable...
