We examined the association between the age of CT scanners and the number of CT scans at small-sized hospitals and clinics in Korea and assessed the notable increase in scanning quantity at health care institutions with a recently manufactured CT scanner.A cross-sectional study designed to analyze whether the a...
To assess whether negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) reduced complications such as wound infection, dehiscence, seroma/hematoma, skin necrosis/blistering, and bleeding compared with non-NPWT treatments.
Hard-to-heal wounds can compromise patient quality of life (QoL); thus, assessing QoL is an important aspect of wound management. The aim of this study, conducted from August 2015 to July 2016, was to translate a wound-specific instrument, the Wound-QoL, into the Swedish language and context and validate its ability to assess QoL in a population of patients with wounds of various etiologies. The Wound-QoL, derived from 3 existing wound care QoL instruments, is a paper-and-pencil tool comprised of 17 Likert-...
Patients with advanced respiratory illness are often hospitalized, requiring close follow up after discharge and also requiring care coordination outside of traditional face-to-face outpatient visits. Primary Care providers and specialists often provide services outside of outpatient visits that have not been captured and reimbursed with traditional billing evaluation and management codes (E/M). Within the last five years, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) added new codes to the Medicare Physician...

In this article, the authors describe the various techniques of vascular occlusion for the management of PAS and provide a brief review of the literature examining the pros and cons in the use of these devices.
This study was conducted to provide an overview of the community-based hypertension and diabetes control programme of 19 cities in Korea and to evaluate its effectiveness in controlling hypertension at the community level.
This study focuses on access to prenatal care and quality of care in the Family Health Strategy in Brazil as a whole and in the North region, through evaluation of infrastructure characteristics in the health units, management, and supply of care provided by the teams, from the perspective of regional and state inequalities. A cross-sectional evaluative and normative study was performed, drawing on the external evaluation component of the second round of the Program for Improvement of Access and Quality of ...
The aim of our study was to examine the antimicrobial potential of eight selected, commercially available wound dressings containing different antimicrobial agents: silver, chlorhexidine acetate, povidone-iodine, and manuka honey.
Seroma is a common and challenging post-operative complication that surgeons are often faced with after performing procedures in which tissue dead spaces have been created. The management strategies consist of non-operative management, percutaneous drainage, or surgical drainage. Our case report discusses the use of Doxycycline sclerotherapy in the successful resolution of a chronic abdominal wall seroma.
To evaluate if cleansing, using a solution containing the antimicrobial polyhexanide and the surfactant betaine (polyhexanide propylbetaine [PP], Prontosan Solution, B. Braun), can aid effective wound bed preparation (WBP).
Self-administered treatment (SAT), a differentiated model of care for rifampicin-resistant tuberculosis (RR-TB), might address adherence challenges faced by patients and health care systems. This study explored patient, health-care worker (HCW) and community care worker (CCW) perspectives on a SAT pilot programme in South Africa, in which patients were given medication to take at home with the optional support of a CCW.
to explore cardiothoracic nurses' knowledge and self-reported competence of wound care following cardiac surgery and to ascertain if there were any differences in knowledge between nurses working in public and private hospitals.
This study involved an examination of the literature with the goal of establishing innovative leadership initiatives to reduce healthcare costs. To achieve this objective, the author used a qualitative research design based on grounded theory to identify the key drivers of high healthcare costs and examine ways to manage them. The study outcomes show that the key drivers were unnecessary diagnostic procedures such as imaging tests, large numbers of specialty referrals, and hospitalization. The author observ...
Postoperative fistula formation remains a serious complication following abdominal surgical procedures. Refractory fistulas requiring further surgical intervention delay adjuvant chemotherapy and functional recovery. Here, we present six cases of refractory fistulas and describe a new management technique, which we call video-assisted hydrodebridement. We postulate that refractory fistulas are a type of chronic wound, for which hydrodebridement may be used to hasten wound healing. In all cases, patients had...
We screened, for the first time, plasmid-mediated colistin resistance mcr-3 genes among 636 Escherichia coli isolates collected from swine in South Korea. Whole-genome sequencing showed that the E. coli strain harbored the mcr-3 gene in a p17S-208 plasmid with an IncHI2-ST3 plasmid type and a size of 260,399 base pairs. The deduced amino acid sequences revealed that persistent evolution in the bacterial genome has resulted in mcr gene variants. There is a need for extensive surveillance to prevent the disse...
β-Glucan has been shown to modulate immune system and potentially aid wound healing. A naturally-available β-glucan, paramylon, is available in the form of a film, which would be an ideal form to use in wound care. The aim of this study was to examine the therapeutic efficacy of paramylon film as a wound dressing.
In 2009, a nationwide sentinel surveillance for hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) and herpangina (HA) with neurologic complications was initiated in South Korea. We used this surveillance system to investigate the clinical characteristics of patients with either HFMD or HA with neurologic complications, with the aim of determining risk factors for severe neurologic complications.
Background and Aims Little is known regarding the exact burden of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Asian countries because previous epidemiologic studies were hospital-based. We aimed to develop and validate an operational definition of IBD cases from health insurance claims data and to examine the epidemiological features of IBD in Korea.
Clinicians across all health-care settings are challenged daily by wounds that are slow or static in healing due to time constraints, reduced resources and the negative impact upon the patient's quality of life (QoL). Community settings are particularly challenging due to the varied environments, patient social, psychological and financial constraints, and multi-clinician wound care monitoring. The aim of this clinical evaluation is to clinically evaluate bioactive soluble beta-glucan gel (BSBG) on those wo...
Polypharmacy is associated with adverse drug reactions and represents an economic burden on the health insurance system. The objective of our study was to assess the trends in polypharmacy and its associated factors in South Korea. This cross-sectional study used a nationwide sampled database between 2002 and 2013, including outpatients of all ages who received at least 1 prescription in the same period. Polypharmacy was defined as the concomitant prescription of ≥6 distinct medications on a single prescr...
Health Care Workers (HCWs) are among the highest risk groups for contracting tuberculosis (TB), which is ranked the third most common occupational health disease in South Africa. Little is known about the true extent of the burden of TB among South African HCWs and current surveillance approaches are inadequate. The study aimed to determine the feasibility of using postal and web-based surveys accessed through registries of registered professionals to estimate the prevalence of TB among HCWs in South Africa...
Interventions that can facilitate early diagnosis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) will facilitate early treatment and improve clinical outcomes but there has been concerns about additional medical costs to the health care system. An examination through a retina fundus photography by a non-specialist has been suggested as a potential cost-effective alternative to a direct examination by a specialist, but limited scientific data exists on the cost-effectiveness of screening strategies for AMD. Our o...
The number of people in the world with diabetes has nearly quadrupled in the past 40 years. Current data show that 25% of these diabetics will develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime and that the cost of care for a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is over twice that of any other chronic ulcer aetiology. Microbial biofilm has been linked to both wound chronicity and infection. Close to 1 in 2 diabetics with a DFU are predicted to go on to develop a diabetic foot infection (DFI). The majority of these DFIs have bee...
