Significance of Increased Rapid Treatment from HIV Diagnosis to the First Antiretroviral Therapy in the Recent 20 Years and Its Implications: the Korea HIV/AIDS Cohort Study.
Authors: Kim YJ, Kim SW, Kwon KT, Chang HH, Kim SI, Kim YJ, Kim MJ, Choi JY, Kim HY, Kim JM, Choi BY, Park BY, Choi YS, Kee MK, Yoo MS, Lee JG Abstract From December 2006 to December 2016, 1,429 patients enrolled in the Korea human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) Cohort Study were investigated. Based on the year of diagnosis, the time interval between HIV diagnosis and initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) was analyzed by dividing it into 2 years. The more recent the diagnosis, the more likely rapid treatment was initiated (P

Added Value of Bone Suppression Image in the Detection of Subtle Lung Lesions on Chest Radiographs with Regard to Reader's Expertise.
Authors: Hong GS, Do KH, Lee CW Abstract BACKGROUND: Chest radiographs (CXR) are the most commonly used imaging techniques by various clinicians and radiologists. However, detecting lung lesions on CXR depends largely on the reader's experience level, so there have been several trials to overcome this problem using post-processing of CXR. We investigated the added value of bone suppression image (BSI) in detecting various subtle lung lesions on CXR with regard to reader's expertise. METHODS: We applied a software program to generate BSI in 1,600 patients in the emergency department. Of them, 80 patients with su...

Factors Associated with the Prognosis after Operation in Children with Recurrent Intermittent Exotropia.
CONCLUSION: Peripheral suppression lowers the success rate of operation for recurrent X(T) in children. Overcorrection rather than orthotropia should be the target of immediate postoperative deviation angle. Peripheral suppression status and immediate and 2-month postoperative deviation angle may be important clues for predicting the final result of operation for recurrent X(T).

Increased Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) in Hyperuricemic Individuals May Be Explained by Hyperhomocysteinemia Associated with Renal Dysfunction: a Cross-Sectional Study.
This study aimed to investigate how hyperuricemia is associated with increased carotid IMT with a focus on hyperhomocysteinemia. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 1,222 patients who visited the Chung-Ang University Hospital Health Promotion Center from January 2013 to December 2015. The serum Hcy levels were estimated with a competitive immunoassay using the direct chemiluminescence method. The carotid IMT was measured by B-mode carotid ultrasonography. The definition of hyperuricemia was a serum uric acid level> 7.0 mg/dL for men or> 5.6 mg/dL for women, and hyperhomocysteinemia was defined as serum l...

Perspectives on Acute Hepatitis A Control in Korea.
Authors: Kang SH, Kim MY, Baik SK Abstract Until 1995, the incidence of symptomatic acute hepatitis A was minimal and there were no cases of national outbreak in Korea. However, there was a nationwide outbreak of hepatitis A that peaked in 2009. In 2019, a total of 10,083 cases of acute hepatitis A were reported for seven months of the year according to the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This may be attributed to the proportion of susceptible subjects in the Korean population, as about 10 years have passed since herd immunity was induced by the epidemic occurring during the late 2000s.

Common Locations of Gastric Cancer: Review of Research from the Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection Era.
Authors: Kim SJ, Choi CW Abstract Detection of early-stage gastric cancer improves the prognosis of patients. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a curative and stomach-preserving treatment for early gastric cancer (EGC) associated with a low risk of lymph node metastasis. However, several studies have reported missed diagnosis of gastric cancer. Therefore, endoscopists are required to learn accurate diagnostic skills to eliminate endoscopic blind spots. A systematic screening protocol to map the entire stomach without blind spots reduces the risk of missed lesions. Knowledge of the features of EGC or dysplas...

Change in the Annual Antibiotic Susceptibility of Escherichia coli in Community-Onset Urinary Tract Infection between 2008 and 2017 in a Tertiary Care Hospital in Korea.
Authors: Kim YJ, Lee JM, Cho J, Lee J Abstract The susceptibility of Escherichia coli from community onset urinary tract infection (UTI) was evaluated by dividing community onset UTI into the simple community acquired-UTI (CA-UTI) and healthcare associated UTI (HCA-UTI) groups for a period of 10 years. The susceptibility of E. coli to most antibiotics, except amikacin and imipenem, continued to decrease. In the CA-UTI group, the susceptibility to cefotaxime was 88% in 2015, but rapidly decreased to 79.3% in 2017. The susceptibility to cefepime and piperacillin-tazobactam were 88.8% and 90.5% in 2017, respectively. ...
