Sep 16th, 2015 - Infective endocarditis is a potentially lethal disease that has undergone major changes in both host and pathogen. The epidemiology of infective endocarditis has become more complex with today's myriad healthcare-associated factors that predispose to infection. Moreover, changes in pathogen prevalence, in particular a more common staphylococcal origin, have affected outcomes, which have not imp...

May 3rd, 2017 - The human and financial costs of treating surgical site infections (SSIs) are increasing. The number of surgical procedures performed in the United States continues to rise, and surgical patients are initially seen with increasingly complex comorbidities. It is estimated that approximately half of SSIs are deemed preventable using evidence-based strategies. To provide new and updated evidence-b...

Sep 3rd, 2008 - There is wide variation in the use of solutions to "lock" or fill tunneled central venous catheters for dialysis. Some centers use undiluted heparin concentrations ranging from 1000 to 10,000 U/ml and other centers place from 1000 to 10,000 U per lumen. Based on available evidence, it appears that heparin 1000 U/ml, or 4% sodium citrate are suitable choices for lock solution to maintain patency...

May 20th, 2011 - Venous thrombo-embolism (VTE) is increasingly recognized in paediatric practice. Few clinical trials have been performed in this area in children and management is largely extrapolated from adult practice where there is a considerable evidence base. This is likely to be unsatisfactory for a number of reasons. Firstly, there are significant differences in epidemiology and potential differences i...

Apr 20th, 2010 - Cerebral venous and sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a rather rare disease which accounts for <1% of all strokes. Diagnosis is still frequently overlooked or delayed as a result of the wide spectrum of clinical symptoms and the often subacute or lingering onset. Current therapeutic measures which are used in clinical practice include the use of anticoagulants such as dose-adjusted intravenous heparin...
