Article
Objectives: Basic science studies suggest that opioids aggravate disease severity and outcomes in acute pancreatitis. We sought to determine the association of opioid use and opioid type with the clinical course and outcome of acute pancreatitis. Methods: In this retrospective single-center observational study, we included all adult patients adm...
Article
Acute non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NV-UGIB) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Early and efficient risk stratification can facilitate management and improve outcomes. We aimed to determine whether the level of ionized calcium (Ca++), an essential co-factor in the coagulation cascade, is associated with the seve...

COVID-19 outbreak has a profound impact on almost every aspect of life. Universal masking is recommended as a means of source control. Routinely exercising in a safe environment is an important strategy for healthy living during this crisis. As sports clubs and public spaces may serve a source of viral transmission, masking may become an integral p...
Article
Background Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is often complicated by impaired coagulation. We aimed to determine whether the level of ionised calcium (Ca²⁺), an essential coagulation co-factor, at diagnosis of PPH is associated with bleeding severity. Methods This was a retrospective cohort study of women diagnosed with PPH during vaginal delivery betw...
Article
In a single-centre interrupted time-series quasi-experimental study, we assessed whether a hospital policy of selective digestive decontamination (SDD, gentamicin/amikacin with neomycin) administered to carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) carriers will reduce carriage duration and contain CRE spread. No significant difference between the in...

Background: Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) infections lead to considerable morbidity and mortality. We assessed the potential of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) to eradicate CPE carriage and aimed to explain failure or success through microbiome analyses. Methods: In this prospective cohort study, all consenting eligible...
Article
Immediate and long-term recalls of a pre-travel consultation are suboptimal. We aimed to assess the role of online consultation for travellers. We randomized travellers into two study groups. In the intervention arm, each traveller was given a short pre-travel consultation of 8-12 minutes, combined with the option of smartphone support before and...
Article
Objectives: To identify risk factors for mortality in a cohort of carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) carriers, focusing on immunosuppression and other risk factors known at the time of CRE carriage detection. Methods: We prospectively followed all new and known CRE carriers admitted between June 2016 and June 2017 to a single tertiary...
Article
A 71-year-old actively working farmer was admitted because of progressive weakness of the left hand and leg starting 5 weeks before admission. He has been suffering from headaches in the last 4 years. He has undergone kidney transplantation 14 years before admission. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a right frontoparietal hypodense l...

A 56-year-old man with lymphoma developed orchitis followed by septic arthritis of his right glenohumeral joint. Synovial fluid cultures were negative but PCR amplification test was positive forUreaplasmaparvum. The patient was treated with doxycycline. Two and a half years later, the patient presented with shortness of breath and grade III/IV dias...
Article
Background: The prevalence of antimicrobial co-resistance among ESBL-producing Enterobactereaceae is extremely high in Israel. Multidrug-resistant Proteus mirabilis strains (MDR-PM), resistant to almost all antibiotic classes have been described. The aim was to determine the risk factors for bloodstream infections caused by MDR-PM and clinical out...
