  3. Rare Diseases in Europe: from a Wide to a Local Perspective.

    IMAJ 18(6):359 (2016) PMID 27468531

    The European Union defines rare diseases (RDs) as life-threatening or chronically debilitating conditions whose prevalence is less than 5 per 10,000. Moreover, for many RDs, including those of genetic origin, combined efforts are required to reduce morbidity or perinatal and early mortality, and...
  4. Estimating Risk of Venous-Thromboembolic Events in Hospitalized Medical Patients: Comparison between 2008 and 2012 Guidelines.

    IMAJ 18(6):346 (2016) PMID 27468528

    Prophylaxis for hospitalized venous-thromboembolic events (VTEs) is frequently underutilized, in part due to lack of a simple risk assessment model (RAM). To compare patient selection and administration of VTE prophylaxis according to the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) 2008 guidelin...

  6. Syncope in Primary Prevention Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Patients.

    IMAJ 18(6):318 (2016) PMID 27468522

    Syncope is a common clinical condition spanning from benign to life-threatening diseases. There is sparse information on the outcomes of syncopal patients who received an implantable cardiac defibrillator (lCD) for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD). To assess the outcomes and prog...
  7. Down-Regulation of Cardiac Erythropoietin Receptor and its Downstream Activated Signal Transducer Phospho-STAT-5 in a Rat Model of Chronic Kidney Disease.

    IMAJ 18(6):326 (2016) PMID 27468524

    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often accompanied by impairment of cardiac function that may lead to major cardiac events. Erythropoietin (EPO), a kidney-produced protein, was shown to be beneficial to heart function. It was suggested that reduced EPO secretion in CKD may play a role in the init...
  8. Clinical Profile of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Impact of Ethnic and Social Diversities in Israel.

    IMAJ 18(6):322 (2016) PMID 27468523

    Despite the increased worldwide recognition of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), there is a variability in the diagnostic rate of both ADHD and its co-morbidities. These diversities are probably related to the methodology and instruments used for the diagnosis of ADHD and to aware...
  9. Gastrostomy Tube Weaning and Treatment of Severe Selective Eating in Childhood: Experience in Israel Using an Intensive Three Week Program.

    IMAJ 18(6):331 (2016) PMID 27468525

    Children dependent on gastrostomy tube feeding and those with extremely selective eating comprise the most challenging groups of early childhood eating disorders. We established, for the first time in Israel, a 3 week intensive weaning and treatment program for these patients based on the "Graz ...

  13. How Many Embryos Should Be Transferred? The Relevance of Parity and Obstetric History.

    IMAJ 18(6):364 (2016) PMID 27468532

  14. Learning Curve of Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology of Head and Neck Masses.

    IMAJ 18(6):350 (2016) PMID 27468529

    Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is used to provide rapid diagnostic information regarding masses of the head and neck. To achieve good results, adequate training is essential. To evaluate the efficacy of FNAC in the diagnosis of head and neck masses performed by residents and attending ph...
  15. Using Advanced Imaging Methods to Study Neurolathyrism.

    IMAJ 18(6):341 (2016) PMID 27468527

    Neurolathyrism is a toxic nutritional disorder caused by consumption of the grass pea, Lathyrus sativus. The disease, which manifests as an acute or insidiously evolving spastic paraparesis, continues to occur throughout Africa and Asia. Research on this disease is limited, and to our knowledge ...
  16. How Many Embryos should be Transferred? The Relevance of Parity and Obstetric History.

    IMAJ 18(6):313 (2016) PMID 27468521

    Fertility treatments are responsible for the rise in high order pregnancies in recent decades and their associated complications. Reducing the number of embryos returned to the uterus will reduce the rate of high order pregnancies. To explore whether obstetric history and parity have a role in t...
  17. Preoperative Planning of Orthopedic Procedures using Digitalized Software Systems.

    IMAJ 18(6):354 (2016) PMID 27468530

    The progression from standard celluloid films to digitalized technology led to the development of new software programs to fulfill the needs of preoperative planning. We describe here preoperative digitalized programs and the variety of conditions for which those programs can be used to facilita...
  18. Post-Infectious Glomerulonephritis in Pediatric Patients over Two Decades: Severity-Associated Features.

    IMAJ 18(6):336 (2016) PMID 27468526

    The incidence of post-infectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN) has decreased over the last decades. As a result, recent epidemiological data from industrialized countries are scarce. To evaluate patterns of PIGN in children and detect possible predictors of disease severity. We collected clinical an...
