[Surveillance cultures after high-level disinfection of flexible endoscopes in a general hospital].
Rev Gastroenterol Peru
PUBLISHED: 07-17-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Flexible endoscopes are instruments with a complex structure which are used in invasive gastroenterological procedures, therefore high-level disinfection (HLD) is recommended as an appropriate reprocessing method. However, most hospitals do not perform a quality control to assess the compliance and results of the disinfection process.

[Mycobacterium avium lung infection in HIV/AIDS patient: first report in Peru].
Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica
PUBLISHED: 04-11-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is a pathogen found in the environment which causes infections in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. One case is presented: an HIV positive, 38 year old male patient, infected with P. jirovecii and apparently infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis since 2009. He was treated with antibiotic therapy for pneumocystosis and antituberculosis (TB) therapy, which achieved a partial improvement. In 2012, the patient underwent a culture test and new anti TB treatment. Upon suspicion of a drug resistant TB strain, it was recommended to perform the mycobacterial identification. The culture test was positive and the genotypic result was positive for MAC. The first case of an HIV/AIDS patient with MAC lung infection in Peru is reported, as well as a brief review of the epidemiological, clinical and treatment aspects to the case.

[Publication of research projects for certification as medical specialists at a Peruvian university, 2007-2010].
Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica
PUBLISHED: 03-12-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
In order to determine the frequency of publication in a scientific journal of the research projects done for medical specialty certification, a search was conducted in Google Scholar, Pubmed, biomedical databases and Peruvian medical society journals. These publications were research projects carried out by medical residents graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, to obtain the certification of medical specialist. Of 351 medical residents graduated between the years 2007-2010, 199 (65.5%) completed their research project and 47 (23.6%) published it in a scientific journal. The "medicine" (non-surgical) specialty area had the highest frequency of publications. All publications were in Spanish journals, the majority in indexed journals in regional databases. We conclude that 23.6% of the research projects for certification as medical specialists are published, most often in low visibility journals.

PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Traffic related injuries are leading contributors to burden of disease worldwide. In developing countries a high proportion of them can be attributed to public transportation vehicles. Several mental disorders including alcohol and drug abuse, psychotic disorders, mental stress, productivity pressure, and low monetary income were found predictors of high rates of traffic related injuries in public transportation drivers. The goal of this study was to estimate the prevalence of common mental disorders in the population of public transportation drivers of buses and rickshaws in Lima, Peru.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of adult patients with tuberculous spondylitis as well as an exploratory analysis that seeked to establish patient characteristics that contributed to the development of this disorder at a reference hospital in Lima. This is a case-series descriptive study where data collection from 33 medical records of patients from 1999 to 2009 was done. Eighteen (55%) were male. Median age was 31 years (IQR 23 to 51 years). Median time of symptoms was 3 months (IQR 1 to 8 months). The most frequent symptom was back pain in 28 (85%). The most frequently affected areas were the thoracic spine involved in 28 (60%) cases and lumbar spine in 13 (28%). Pulmonary tuberculosis was present in fourteen (42%) cases. Twenty four (73%) patients received first line treatment. Treatment duration was 10.5 ± 4.2 months. Clinical and diagnostic characteristics were similar to previous Peruvian case reports and current literature.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
