The clinical burden of obstetric venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk is inadequately established. This study assessed the prevalence and management of VTE risk during pregnancy and postpartum outside the Western world. This international, noninterventional study enrolled adult women with objectively confirmed pregnancy attending prenatal care/obstetric centers across 18 countries in Africa, Eurasia, Middle-East, and South Asia. Evaluations included proportions of at-risk women, prophylaxis as per international guidelines, prophylaxis type, factors determining prophylaxis, and physicians' awareness about VTE risk management guidelines and its impact on treatment decision. Read more.

How to perform Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) (Ultrasound International Open)

Christoph F. Dietrich
Michalakis Averkiou
Michael Bachmann Nielsen et al. 

"How to perform contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)" provides general advice on the use of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) for clinical decision-making and reviews technical parameters for optimal CEUS performance. CEUS techniques vary between centers, therefore, experts from EFSUMB, WFUMB and from the CEUS LI-RADS working group created a discussion forum to standardize the CEUS examination technique according to published evidence and best personal experience. The goal is to standardise the use and administration of UCAs to facilitate correct diagnoses and ultimately to improve the management and outcomes of patients. Read more.

Transforming Data into Knowledge: How to Improve the Efficiency of Clinical Care? (Yearbook of Medical Informatics)

Séroussi, B.; Soualmia, L. F.; Holmes, J. H.

In this edition of the Yearbook, we focused on one of the most important issues for the medical informatics community: The secondary use of clinical data. With the ubiquitous adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and the increasing availability of genomic and environmental data, as well as the accessibility of unstructured data in social media, issues related to data integration, storage, and management, as well as the need for novel analytic approaches are clear challenges. The paradigm of Learning Health Systems (LHSs) is presented in the keynote paper and survey papers review the significant developments in allied fields such as clinical research, clinical systems, translational informatics, and public health over the past two years. IMIA Working Groups also contributed to this topic. Read more.

Pilot Study of Intra-Aortic Balloon Occlusion to Limit Morbidity in Patients with Adherent Placentation Undergoing Cesarean Hysterectomy (AJP Reports)

Invasive placentation is one of the most feared complications of pregnancy. Patients with morbidly adherent placentation—accreta, increta, and percreta—are at considerable risk of hemorrhage, disseminated intravascular coagulation, multiple blood product transfusions, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and damage to intra-abdominal organs during delivery and removal of the placenta. Reviews of the literature estimate that up to 25% of patients experience blood loss exceeding 5 L; patients have a 40% chance of requiring more than 10 units packed red blood cells and an overall maternal mortality of 7%. The overall incidence of these cases has increased from 1/30,000 deliveries in the 1960s to more recent reports suggesting an increase as high as 1/300 over the past decade. Read more.


Effect of Kyphoplasty in the Treatment of Osteoporotic Vertebral Fractures Compared to Vertebroplasty – Overview of Systematic Reviews (Brazilian Neurosurgery)

It is estimated that 30% of the people over the age of 65 will have a vertebral body compression fracture caused by osteoporosis.Osteoporotic fractures of the spine can lead to chronic pain, progressive deformity, reduced quality of life, and increased mortality. Since 1987, bone filling techniques have become progressively widespread, with benefits in the treatment of pain and associated deformity correction. Read more.
