Urological infections and migration.

[Urological infections and migration]. Urologe A. 2019 Sep 24;: Authors: Bausch K, Kulchavenya E, Wagenlehner F, Bonkat G Abstract In the context of refugee migrations infectious diseases are being more frequently diagnosed, which the responsible physicians as well as urologists have never seen before. This is due to the poorer health and hygiene conditions in the country of origin, during the flight and in the refugee camps. In Europe increasing incidences of tuberculosis, schistosomiasis and scabies have recently been observed. Tuberculosis and schistosomiasis are often accompanied by unspecific symptoms or can resemble normally encountered urological diseases. Due to the highly contagious nature of scabies, a screening of new arrivals is recommended. A timely differential diagnostic inclusion of these disease patterns is enormously important. Despite the reduction in the numbers of asylum applications in Germany, a higher number of unregistered migrants is generally assumed, who also elude the healthcare system and can therefore contribute to the spread of these rare infectious diseases.

CONCLUSIONEsophageal perforation is a very rare complication of TEE. High suspicion is mandatory to reach prompt diagnosis and install effective treatment. Primary closure of the perforation is the treatment of choice, and the endoscopic approach is a safe and feasible option in high volume centers.

BioVentrix is getting closer to bringing its transcatheter-based structural cardiovascular device to treat heart failure to the U.S. The private company announced receiving FDA breakthrough device designation for the Revivent TC Transcatheter Ventricular Enhancement System. This designation can help put San Ramon, CA-based BioVentrix on a faster path to obtaining FDA approval. The firm’s Revivent TC System is used in the Less Invasive Ventricular Enhancement (LIVE) procedure, to exclude scar tissue on the left ventricle that has resulted from a heart attack, so the healthy portion of the heart can functio...

Abstract Stellerachamaejasme L. has been used as a Traditional Chinese Medicine for the treatment of scabies, tinea, stubborn skin ulcers, chronic tracheitis, cancer and tuberculosis. A sensitive and selective ultra-high liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of five flavonoids (stelleranol, chamaechromone, neochamaejasmin A, chamaejasmine and isochamaejasmin) of Stellerachamaejasme L. in rat plasma. Chromatographic separation was accomplished on an Agilent Poroshell 120 EC-C18 column (2.1×100 mm, 2.7μm) with gradie...

The objective of this study was to obtain further information about the health status and health needs of IDP women and children, aged 15 and under, living in the informal settlements in central Iraq. The study was conducted between February and June 2015. Our focus was on settlements in Baghdad, Karbala and Kirkuk, which between them hosted an estimated 688,944 IDPs, about a third of Iraq’s IDPs.14 This estimate is undoubtedly low as some IDPs were not counted or registered. It is the hope that information from this study will help improve access to services for this vulnerable population. These governorates were ...

Cochrane Library. 04/19/2016This Special Collection provides guidance to help people attending refugees and asylum seekers, and to help the development of community programs and policies. The collection focuses on the conditions most relevant to the context of transit or the patient population involved: common mental health disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] and depression), skin infections (including scabies, cellulitis, and impetigo), sexual and physical violence, vaccines-preventable diseases, and tuberculosis.

Conclusion Validated BPGs were produced. These will be subjected to further studies like laboratory (to determine active ingredients and mechanisms of action) and community-wide supervised and documented clinical trials (funded by e.g. PITAHC) that can be the next steps, aside from extensive literature review from international sources.

Abstract The aim of this population-based study was to assess the incidence rates of infectious diseases in native- (Italian) and foreign-born (immigrants) populations in a North Italy area, in 2006–2010. Crude, age-specific incidence rates (IRs) and age-standardised rate ratios (SRRs) between foreign- and native-born subjects and their 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CI) were estimated. A total of 32,554 cases of infectious diseases were found (9.9 % in foreign-born subjects). The highest SRRs between foreign- and nativeborn subjects were found for tuberculosis (SRR = 27.1; 95 ...
