1. Do report cards influence hospital choice? The case of kidney transplantation.
Match Strength: 3.841
The national program to report hospital-level outcomes for transplantation has been in place since 1991, yet it has not been addressed in the existing literature on hospital report cards. We study the impact of reported outcomes on demand at kidney transplant centers. Using a negative binomial regression with hospital fixed effects, we estimate the number of patients choosing each center as a function of reported outcomes. Parameters are identified by the within-hospital variation in outcomes over five successive report cards. We find some evidence that report cards influence younger and ... Read More »

3. The impact of unmeasured clinical variables on the accuracy of hospital report cards: a Monte Carlo study.
Match Strength: 3.170
PURPOSE: Hospital report cards are commonly produced using administrative data. The objective of this study was to determine the impact of unmeasured clinical data on the accuracy of hospitals' report cards. METHODS: Monte Carlo simulations were based on both administrative and detailed clinical data for patients hospitalized with an acute myocardial infarction in Ontario, Canada. Data were simulated such that the true performance of each hospital was known. Both clinical and administrative risk scores were randomly generated for each patient. The ability of hospital report cards to correctly ... Read More »

Match Strength: 2.711
Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease that usually involves the lungs and lymph nodes, but almost any organ can be involved. Genitourinary involvement with sarcoidosis is extremely rare. We report the case of a 30-year-old African-American male who presented with a right-sided intrascrotal mass and diffuse lymphadenopathy. On further workup, he was found to have sarcoidosis.

12. Stump appendicitis is a rare delayed complication of appendectomy: A case report.
Match Strength: 2.589
Stump appendicitis is an acute inflammation of the residual appendix and one of the rare complications after appendectomy. Paying attention to the possibility of stump appendicitis in patients with right lower abdominal pain after appendectomy can prevent the delay of diagnosis and treatment. In patients with stump appendicitis, CT scan not only assists in making an accurate preoperative diagnosis but also excludes other etiologies. We report a 47-year old man with preoperatively diagnosed stump appendicitis by CT, who underwent an open appendectomy 20 years ago ... Read More »

18. The first report of Aelurostrongylus falciformis in Norwegian badgers (Meles meles).
Match Strength: 2.477
The first report of Aelurostrongylus falciformis (Schlegel 1933) in Fennoscandian badgers is described. Routine parasitological examination of nine Norwegian badgers, at the National Veterinary Institute during 2004 and 2005, identified A. falciformis in the terminal airways of five of the animals. The first stage larvae (L1) closely resembled, in size and morphology, those of Angiostrongylus vasorum (Baillet 1866). The diagnosis for both A. falciformis and A. vasorum is frequently based on the identification of L1 in faeces or sputum. The potential for misclassification of an A. falciformis ... Read More »

Renal tubular dysgenesis is a rare congenital abnormality of renal development characterized by short and poorly developed proximal convoluted tubules. It is associated to late-appearing oligohydramnios, Potter's sequence, pulmonary hypoplasia and calvarial bone hypoplasia with enlarged fontanels. The onset of oligohydramnios is delayed and variable, normally later than 22 weeks of gestation, conditioning variation in the expression of the other deformities.
