Hazard or Harmless Fun? Injuries Caused by Fireworks -Study at the University Emergency Department (2013-2019)
CONCLUSION: Fireworks are associated with a substantial risk for injuries, especially when used uncautiously. Our study showed that serious injuries mainly affect the hands. To prevent such injuries, systematic data collection on injuries caused by fireworks would be necessary, as many injured patients are hospitalised in smaller, peripheral hospitals or not at all. These data would allow for the development of more comprehensive and detailed prevention strategies that could prevent fireworks injuries.PMID:33906441 | DOI:10.1024/1661-8157/a003628 (Source: Praxis)

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common vasculitis among patients over the age of 50. Mainly large vessels are targeted. GCA can be differentiated into cranial and extra-cranial types; thus the symptoms can range from headache, blurred vision and jaw claudication to non-specific symptoms like fatigue, polymyalgia and fever. Complications such as an irreversible loss of vision are critical, which is why timeous diagnosis and treatment are essential. There are some recommendations for treatment, but n...

Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):285-292. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003667.ABSTRACTCME: Giant Cell Arteritis Abstract. Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common vasculitis among patients over the age of 50. Mainly large vessels are targeted. GCA can be differentiated into cranial and extra-cranial types; thus the symptoms can range from headache, blurred vision and jaw claudication to non-specific symptoms like fatigue, polymyalgia and fever. Complications such as an irreversible loss of vision are critical, which is why timeous diagnosis and treatment are essential. There are some recommendations for treatment, but n...

CME/Answers: Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Lyme Disease
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):299-300. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003666.ABSTRACT Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne illness in Switzerland and Lyme arthritis the most prevalent manifestation of late-stage Lyme disease. It presents as a monoarthitis or oligoarthritis in large joints, often involving the knee. Such a clinical presentation, together with positive Lyme serologies or polymerase chain reactions from synovial fluid/tissue, is considered diagnostic. If there is no tick bite or erythema migrans in the patient's history the diagnosis can be challenging due to the many differential diagnoses. The initia...

CME Sonography 97/Answers: Ultrasound Pathologies of the Hip
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):301-302. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003647.ABSTRACTCME Sonography 97/Answers: Ultrasound Pathologies of the Hip Abstract. Abstract: Hip pain has a broad differential diagnosis. A clinical examination is not enough to determine the underlying cause. In most cases, sonography helps to narrow the differential diagnosis or to make a specific diagnosis. Furthermore, ultrasound allows a targeted and anatomically precise diagnostic aspiration or therapeutic infiltration. Examples are used to illustrate different pathologies by region.PMID:33906437 | DOI:10.1024/1661-8157/a003647 (Source: Praxis)

Heart Patients and Exposure to Altitude
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):303-311. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003649.ABSTRACT Overall, heart patients should be advised individually with respect to their tolerance of altitudes. However, the historical reflex that altitude 'per se' is bad for heart patients should become a thing of the past. Adequately treated and stable patients can usually go up to an altitude of 2500 m without any restrictions. Higher altitudes are also possible for a large number of patients, but may require an adaptation of the medication and further clarification. This is especially the case when physical work is to be performed at great heig...

Acute Traumatic Central Cord Syndrome: Etiology, Pathophysiology, Clinical Manifestation, and Treatment
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):324-335. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003659.ABSTRACTAcute Traumatic Central Cord Syndrome: Etiology, Pathophysiology, Clinical Manifestation, and Treatment Abstract. The acute traumatic central cord syndrome (ATCCS) represents an injury to the spinal cord with disproportionately greater motor impairment of the upper than the lower extremities, with bladder dysfunction and with varying degrees of sensory loss below the level of the respective lesion. The mechanism of ATCCS is most commonly a traumatic hyperextension injury of the cervical spine at the base of an underlying spondylosis and spi...

The Role of Percutaneous Coronary Revascularization in Chronic Coronary Syndromes
Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Apr;110(6):313-323. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003648.ABSTRACTThe Role of Percutaneous Coronary Revascularization in Chronic Coronary Syndromes Abstract. Coronary heart disease represents the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Optimal management of these patients is therefore crucial and includes lifestyle changes, optimal medical therapy, and coronary revascularization. This review summarizes diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of patients with chronic coronary syndromes, focusing on the 2019 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the diagnosis and management of chroni...

Hazard or Harmless Fun? Injuries Caused by Fireworks -Study at the University Emergency Department (2013-2019)
CONCLUSION: Fireworks are associated with a substantial risk for injuries, especially when used uncautiously. Our study showed that serious injuries mainly affect the hands. To prevent such injuries, systematic data collection on injuries caused by fireworks would be necessary, as many injured patients are hospitalised in smaller, peripheral hospitals or not at all. These data would allow for the development of more comprehensive and detailed prevention strategies that could prevent fireworks injuries.PMID:33906441 | DOI:10.1024/1661-8157/a003628 (Source: Praxis)
