Detection and identification of dermatophytes based on currently available methods - a comparative study.

Accurate identification of dermatophytes is essential for implementing appropriate antifungal treatment and epidemiological analysis. However, the limitations of conventional diagnostics is a frequently discussed topic, and new diagnostic techniques are constantly expanding. In this study, we assess the suitability of conventional diagnostic techniques in comparison to the real-time PCR assay and MALDI-TOF MS in detection and identification of dermatophytes.

Contrast-enhanced harmonic versus standard endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration in solid pancreatic lesions: a single-center prospective randomized trial.

 Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasound (CH-EUS) can visualize necrotic areas and vessels inside lesions. CH-EUS findings combined with EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) improves diagnosis in pancreatic solid masses. CH-EUS can also guide EUS-FNA (CH-EUS-FNA), potentially improving the diagnostic rate of EUS-FNA, but such superiority has not been proved in prospective studies. We aimed to assess whether CH-EUS-FNA is superior to standard EUS-FNA for specific diagnosis of solid pancreatic masses and what factors affect the diagnostic rate.

Variability in patient sociodemographics, clinical characteristics, and healthcare service utilization among 107,302 treatment seeking smokers in Ontario: A cross-sectional comparison.

Since 2005, the Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) program has provided smoking cessation treatment of varying form and intensity to smokers through 11 distinct treatment models, either in-person at partnering healthcare organizations or remotely via web or telephone. We aimed to characterize the patient populations reached by different treatment models.

Single- versus dual-attending strategy for spinal deformity surgery: 2-year experience and systematic review of the literature.

Adult spinal deformity (ASD) surgery is complex and associated with high morbidity and complication rates. There is growing evidence in the literature for the beneficial effects of an approach to surgery in which two attending physicians rather than a single attending physician perform surgery for and oversee the surgical care of a single patient in a dual-attending care model. The authors developed a dual-attending care collaboration in August 2017 in which a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon mutually operated on patients with ASD.

International electives in neurological surgery training: a survey of program directors from Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved neurological surgery programs.

The burden of neurosurgical disease in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) has emerged as a significant factor in global health. Additionally, calls have been growing for first-world neurosurgeons to find ways to help address the international need. Allowing residents to pursue international elective opportunities in LMICs can help alleviate the burden while also providing unique educational opportunities. However, pursuing international work while in residency requires overcoming significant logistical and regulatory barriers. To better understand the general perspectives, perceived barriers, and current availability of international rotations, a survey was sent out to program directors at Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved residencies.

Posterior calvarial distraction for complex craniosynostosis and cerebellar tonsillar herniation.

Children with syndromic, multisuture, and lambdoid craniosynostosis undergoing calvarial surgery often have Chiari malformation type I (CM-I) (or cerebellar tonsillar herniation). The optimal management of this patient group, including the surgical techniques and timing of surgery, remains uncertain. Posterior calvarial distraction (PCD) is an effective method to increase the supratentorial cranial volume and improve raised intracranial pressure in children with complex craniosynostosis. This study investigated the efficacy of PCD in posterior fossa (PF) volume expansion and treatment of CM-I and associated syringomyelia (syrinx) in this group of children.

Enhanced ozonation of ciprofloxacin in the presence of bromide: Kinetics, products, pathways, and toxicity.

Although the ozonation of common antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin (CIP), in water has been well studied, the influence of bromide that is present at high levels in seawater, is essentially unknown. In this study, we investigated the effect of bromide on the reaction kinetics, formation of transformation products (TPs), reaction pathways, and toxicity in the ozonation of CIP. Bromide significantly accelerated the transformation of CIP by ozone, likely due to the formation of reactive bromine species. Based on time-of-flight high-resolution mass spectrometry and suspect screening, a total of 26 TPs, including 13 previously unknown products, were identified in artificial seawater, while only 9 of them were found in pure water without bromide. The transformation of CIP in artificial seawater was found to involve four major processes: oxidation at the piperazinyl moiety with the addition of hydroxyl group(s) to the ring and ring cleavage, oxidation at the quinolone moiety, and bromination. In contrast, the ozonation of CIP in pure water occurred only at the piperazinyl moiety. In addition, bromide also enhanced the removal of toxicity towards Escherichia coli. This study suggests that careful consideration should be taken when using ozone to treat antibiotics contaminated water in the presence of bromide.

Rotavirus outbreak among adults in a university hospital in Germany.

Rotaviruses are the main cause of acute viral gastroenteritis in children under five years of age. Adults seem to be less frequently affected by rotaviruses most likely due to partial immunity resulting from prior infections.
