Comparison of Mortality Risk Factors in Elderly and Young Pulmonary Embolism Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.147
Synopsis: 
Pulmonary embolism(PE) has a high mortality, particularly in the elderly patients. Higher sPESI, presence of co-morbidities, as well as high BUN and CRP levels are associated with increased mortality risk in elderly PE cases.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine clinical, radiological, and laboratory findings as well as mortality rates in younger and older patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and investigate risk factors associated with mortality in elderly patients.

Factors Associated with High-grade Smear ARB Positivity Levels in Pulmonary Tuberculosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.600
Synopsis: 
The aim of the study was investigate clinical and radiological risk factors to predict high-grade ARB-positive (more infectious) pulmonary tuberculosis cases. Patients with coughing and a moderate to high level of radiological involvement should be closely monitored due to their high level risk of transmission.

ABSTRACT

Objective: High grade level of smear acido-resistant bacilli (ARB) positivity has been linked to increased infectiousness in pulmonary tuberculosis (TB).The ability to predict infectiousness is important in the management of the disease. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between smear results, the clinical features and the levels of radiological involvement of TB

Battery-induced Esophageal Foreign Body Injury, Complications and Treatment Outcome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.401
Synopsis: 
Oral, foreign-body ingestions have increased and have been associated with the risk of esophageal injury. Button batteries are widely used and important among ingested objects as they cause chemical injury in the digestive tract within hours.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We aimed to assess the severity caused by button batteries in esophagus.

Predictive Value of Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio and Wells Score in Patients with Pulmonary Embolism after Trauma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.483
Synopsis: 
Trauma patients have a high risk of pulmonary embolism. In this study, the neutrophil lymphocytes ratio in peripheral blood and the Wells score were found to be effective in predicting pulmonary embolism in trauma patients.
