Kocuria kristinae: an emerging pathogen in medical practice.
Conclusions. The clinical spectrum of K. kristinae infections has recently widened. The increasing spread of this underestimated bacterium and its resistance to antibiotics represent a new challenge for public health, which requires specific actions to limit it.

This study aims to address this gap.MethodsThe study used data from the Nihon University Japanese Longitudinal Study of Aging (NUJLSOA) and incidence-based multistate life tables to estimate disabled and disability-free life expectancy based on the stroke status of Japanese residents aged 65 and older.ResultsJapanese stroke survivors aged 65 who experienced an initial disability-free state could expect to live approximately 3 fewer total years of life, 4 –5 fewer years in a disability-free state, and 1–2 more years in a disabled state compared to those without history of a stroke (p
The 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake was the largest and most catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japanese history. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the burden and psychological characteristics of children at 2 years after this catastrophe t...
The risks and complications associated with the use of central venous access catheters in a long-term setting are imprecisely understood. Identification of high-risk subgroups based on patient characteristics and line type is warranted such that modified follow-up regimens can be implemented to reduce risk and to improve patient outcomes. Selected therapies for specific complications are also discussed.
Peripheral artery disease involving the abdominal aorta and iliac arteries due to atherosclerosis is one of the most common therapeutic challenges faced by vascular surgeons. Although there is a paradigm shift in the management of aortoiliac occlusive disease, most patients with extensive aortoiliac disease with juxtarenal aortic occlusion are being referred to vascular surgeons for aortobifemoral bypass as endovascular treatment is complex and long-term data are not available about its durability.
The objective of this study was to evaluate early and midterm outcomes of the Incraft (Cordis, Bridgewater, NJ) ultra-low-profile endograft, analyzing data from the Italian Triveneto Incraft Registry.
Critical limb ischemia is associated with a high risk of major amputation and death if revascularization is not performed promptly. Endovascular procedures in below-knee (BTK) arteries have shown good results in limb salvage. Plain balloon angioplasty is associated with recoil and restenosis. Drug-eluting stents in BTK arteries, such as Cre8 stent (Alvimedica, Istanbul, Turkey), have shown promising results. The purpose of this study was to analyze our initial experience with the Cre8 stent in the BTK arteries in terms of safety and efficacy.
The great saphenous vein (GSV) is the “gold standard” conduit in below-knee revascularization, particularly in targeting a single tibial vessel. In cases of vein unavailability, a composite graft of heparin-bonded expanded polytetrafluoroethylene and saphenous vein was constructed, according to the conclusions of the Italian Propate n Registry.
The objective of this study was to show that a stenotic lesion or occlusion may remain after open thrombectomy or endovascular thrombolysis. Hybrid treatment is applied to eliminate these causes. In our experience obtained at the Central Military Hospital, Mexico City, a hospital of the highest level in the Mexican armed forces with>700 beds, we have found a great discrepancy in what has been published around the world concerning permeability after removal of thrombus of the iliocaval junction by open or percutaneous procedures.
It is well known that chronic venous disease (CVD) is a prevalent disease in the Mexican population. Up to 67.8% of Mexicans have any degree of the disease, according to the Vein Consult Study. Stages C5 and C6 are just 2.5% of the total. The genesis of the disease is an inflammatory process associated with endothelial damage; therefore, an endothelial inflammatory response regulator, such as sulodexide (SD), can directly affect the disease. There are several publications regarding SD and venous ulcer healing, all of them with intramuscular or oral administration.
I’m in Italy for a vacation and went to Lurisia in Piemonte for a spa Terme . Was reading about it when I read about the hot springs had High amounts of Radon in the water. Learned that Marie Curie has visited in 1906 and was excited about the radiation. There are several places in Germany, Austria that also have high radon. I canceled my massage and was surprised this still is allowed. To my surprise discovered there are old mines in Montana that are high in radon where people go for pain... Radon spas and Montana mines
