The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) has evolved as a valuable alternative to the transvenous ICD, especially in young patients. Unfortunately, some of these patients are ineligible for S-ICD implantation due to specific electrocardiographic features. So far, these patients were identified by mandatory pre-implantation screening using the manual screening tool (MST), which lacks objective value. Therefore, a novel automated screening tool (AST) has been introduced recently for obj...
To develop a simple, objective, cheap scoring tool incorporating nutritional parameters and other variables to predict hospitalization and mortality among hemodialysis patients - a tool that could be utilized in low resource countries.
To enable patient- and disease-specific diagnostic and treatment at the intracellular level in real time, it is imperative to engineer a perfect way to locally stimulate selected individual neurons, navigate and dispense a cargo of biomolecules into damaged cells or image sites with relatively high efficacy and with adequate spatial and temporal resolutions. Significant progress has been made using biotechnology; especially with the development of bioinformatics, there are endless molecular databases to ide...
The agrochemical industry is continuously searching for new pesticides to develop products with optimal efficacy, lower application rates in the field, increased selectivity, favorable toxicological and environmental safety, enhanced user friendliness and better economic viability. One strategy to achieve these ambitious goals makes use of the unique properties of molecules containing asymmetric centers. In the past, many natural products and their congeners have been a source of inspiration for designing n...
Thirteen years after the completion of the human genome project, the determination of the genomic sequence of the coding parts of the DNA (the exones, hence the exome), has turned into a primary diagnostic tool in daily use in clinical practice. The Department of Genetics at Hadassah was the first in Israel to introduce exome analysis as a robust diagnostic tool into the pediatric departments. Till now 2600 exomes were analyzed at Hadassah, 850 of them in 2016 alone. Exome analysis is cheap and fast, enabli...
This paper describes the development of a mobile health tool to facilitate Hepatitis C (HCV) treatment decision making in methadone patients.
The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing, and as our population ages, there is a growing number of IBD patients who are transitioning into advanced age; 15% to 20% of IBD patients are classified as late-onset (between 60-65 years of age). This has led clinicians to treat a large number of older patients with IBD. The principles of management of IBD in older patients are the same as those who are younger. There are, however, phenotypic differences that are unique to late-onset IBD and ...
Female gender is a well-known risk factor for aneurysm formation. Although the role of the ovaries and estrogen in aneurysm development has been supported, other organ-hormone pairs unique between genders may also be implicated. In this study, we aim to determine if intracranial aneurysms microsurgically clipped in patients with previous hysterectomies exhibit any unique aneurysm characteristics from those without hysterectomies.
To investigate the concurrent, face and content validity of an evaluation tool for Myofascial Adhesions in Patients after Breast Cancer (MAP-BC evaluation tool).
To assess the ten-year risk of hip and osteoporotic fracture in home care patients using the FRAX® tool.
The Canadian Appropriateness of Epilepsy Surgery (CASES) tool was developed to help physicians identify patients who should be referred for an epilepsy surgery evaluation. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of this tool using a population-based cohort registry (the Swedish National Epilepsy Surgery Register) of patients who underwent epilepsy surgery between 1990 and 2012.
Early identification of patients appropriate for palliative care continues to be a challenge for healthcare systems. Danbury Hospital embedded a palliative care screening tool (PCST) in the nursing admission assessment of the electronic medical record to screen a patient's appropriateness for a palliative care consult. Although the screening tool was helpful in early identification of patients, feedback from healthcare providers indicated lack of clarity in determining "advanced illness" outside of the onco...
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Surgical Risk Calculator (ACS Calculator) provides empirically derived, patient-specific risks for common adverse perioperative outcomes. The ACS Calculator is promoted as a tool to improve shared decision-making and informed consent for patients undergoing elective operations. However, to our knowledge, no data exist regarding the use of this tool in actual preoperative risk discussions with patients. Accordingly, we perfo...
Nutrition screening on admission is one way to identify patients with malnutrition. The Malnutrition Screening Tool (MST) is a commonly used screening tool but has been found to generate false-positive consults.
Approximately one million patients in the Netherlands and 27-36 million patients in Europe have one of the 5,000-8,000 known rare diseases. These patients often do not receive the care they need or with a substantial delay from diagnosis to treatment. As of March 2017, 24 European Reference Networks (ERNs) were launched with the aim to improve the care for these patients through cross-border healthcare, where in principle the knowledge travels and not the patient. It is expected that through the ERNs, Europ...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most commonly seen clinical sleep disorder. STOP-Bang, a widely used screening tool, yields a composite score based on eight dichotomized items including male gender. This study was designed to validate STOP-Bang among clinically referred patients and tested alternative scoring designs on tool performance, with a focus on gender differences in OSA.
An increased fracture risk has been described as a complication of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Clinical prediction models for general population have a limited predictive accuracy for fractures in T2DM patients. The aim was to develop and validate a clinical prediction tool for the estimation of 5-year hip and major fracture risk in T2DM patients.
Between 69% and 82% of patients with advanced chronic illness require palliative care (PC). The NECPAL CCOMS-ICO tool can identify these individuals. Tools to estimate survival are available, but have limited predictive ability, and therefore we sought to assess if NECPAL could improve survival prediction.
Cupping therapy is a popular treatment in various countries and regions, including Saudi Arabia. Cupping therapy is regulated in Saudi Arabia by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), Ministry of Health. The authors recommend that this quality model for selecting patients in cupping clinics - first version (QMSPCC-1) - be used routinely as part of clinical practice and quality management in cupping clinics. The aim of the quality model is to ensure the safety of patients and...

Hand tremor is one of the most frequent symptoms in movement disorders, and differential diagnoses for hand tremor include Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET). However, accurately differentiating between PD and ET in clinical practice remains challenging in patients presenting with hand tremor. We investigated whether a questionnaire-based survey could be useful as a screening tool in patients with hand tremor.
We initiated a prospective interventional study utilizing a nurse-driven bedside dysphagia screen (BDS) in patients with cervical spine injury (CI) to address three objectives: 1) determine the incidence of dysphagia; 2) determine the utility of the new BDS as a screening tool; and 3) compare patient outcomes, specifically dysphagia-related complications, in the study period to a retrospective cohort.
There are now 10 approved biosimilars in the United States, including 3 oncology drugs, and at least 16 others in late-stage development. The introduction of competition into the biologic space launches a new era in the treatment of cancer, possibly increasing access to the extremely costly biologics. The most important and influential stakeholders for biosimilar acceptance and usage are healthcare providers, such as pharmacists and physicians, as well as patients. Gaining their support requires extensive e...
