Determinants of Compliance of Travelers with Vaccination and Malaria Prophylaxis at a Travel Clinic.
CONCLUSION: For appropriate vaccination, pre-travel consultation at least 3 weeks before departure is crucial. Travelers should be aware of required vaccination and malaria prophylaxis before visiting South and Central America and Asia.

The New Cutoff Value of the Hepatic Venous Pressure Gradient on Predicting Long-Term Survival in Cirrhotic Patients.
This study aimed to determine the prognostic role of the categorized hemodynamic stage (HS) based on the hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) in patients with portal hypertension. METHODS: Of 1,025 cirrhotic patients who underwent HVPG measurement, data on 572 non-critically-ill patients were collected retrospectively between 2008 and 2013. The following two HS categorizations were used: HS-1 (6-9, 10-12, 13-16, 17-20, and> 20 mmHg; designated as groups 1-5, respectively) and HS-2 (6-12, 13-20, and> 20 mmHg). Clinical characteristics, mortality rates, and prognostic predictors were analyzed according to the c...

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Its Association with Depression in Korean General Population.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent studies have indicated the significant association between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and depression. However, there is ongoing debate on whether the risk for depression is actually related with the presence and severity of NAFLD. Thus, this study was conducted to investigate the association between depression and NAFLD evaluated by diverse modalities. METHODS: A total of 112,797 participants from the Korean general population were enrolled. The study participants were categorized into three groups according to degree of NAFLD evaluated by ultrasonography, fatty live...

Effect of Hyperglycemia on Myocardial Perfusion in Diabetic Porcine Models and Humans.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) causes macro- and microvasculopathy, but data on cardiac microvascular changes in large animals are scarce. We sought to determine the effect of DM on macro- and microvascular changes in diabetic pigs and humans. METHODS: Eight domestic pigs (4 with type I diabetes and 4 controls) underwent coronary angiography with optical coherence tomography (OCT; at baseline and 1 and 2 months), coronary computed tomography angiography, cardiac magnet resonance (CMR) imaging, and histologic examination. RESULTS: The diabetic pigs had more irregular capillaries with acellula...

Effects of Prenatal Growth Status on Subsequent Childhood Renal Function Related to High Blood Pressure.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Hypertension is one of the major causes of chronic diseases. The effect on high blood pressure (BP) with fetal growth restriction is now well-established. Recent studies suggest that a reduced number of nephrons programmed during the intrauterine period contribute to a subsequently elevated BP, due to a permanent nephron deficit. However, few studies have examined this in children. We investigated the effects of low birth weight (LBW) and preterm birth on the renal function markers related to a high BP in childhood. METHODS: We used data from 304 children aged 7-12 years who participated ...

History of Pulmonary Surfactant Replacement Therapy for Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Korea.
Abstract Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a disease that is unique to newborn infants. It is caused by a deficiency of pulmonary surfactant (PS), which is usually ready to be activated around the perinatal period. Until RDS was more clearly understood, it was not known why premature infants died from respiratory failure, although pathology revealed hyaline membranes in the alveoli. Surprisingly, the era of PS replacement therapy began only relatively recently. The first clinical trial investigating neonatal RDS was conducted in 1980. Since then, newborn survival has improved dramatically, which has ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The lack of medical personnel has led to the employment of hospitalists in Korean hospitals to provide high-quality medical care. However, whether hospitalists' care can improve patients' outcomes remains unclear. We aimed to analyze the outcome in patients cared for by hospitalists.

Abstract Heart rate (HR) change during sleepy driving has never been investigated. Healthy volunteers who planned to drive a long distance were recruited and monitored with a 24-hour Holter. Six healthy volunteers were enrolled. Their mean driving time was 297.7 ± 111 minutes. Mean duration of sleepy time while driving was 27 ± 24.5 minutes. Driving HR showed a trend for increment as compared to day time mean HR, from 85 ± 5.6 to 89.8 ± 5.6 beats/min (by 7%) (P = 0.093). Mean HR while sleepy driving significantly decreased to 81.5 ± 9.2 beats/min by 9.3% ± 7.4% (P = 0.046)...
