Identification of peripheral vascular disease by angiography in patients undergoing coronary angiography may be considered as malpractice but sometimes seems to be justified under clear entry criteria. The present mata-analysis is aimed to analyze the appropriateness and results of screening angiography of subclavian or abdominal aorta performed at the time of coronary angiography.|A search of published literature for peripheral angiography in patients undergoing coronary angiography over the last 10 years was performed using the MEDLINE database. No language restriction was employed. Only studies enrolling more than 100 patients for abdominal aortography and 50 patients for subclavian/internal mammary artery angiography were considered. Reference lists from identified studies were also reviewed to identify other potentially relevant references.|Twenty-nine studies were retrieved: 8 articles about subclavian artery (SA) and internal mammary (IMA) angiography and 21 about renal (RA)
The primary purpose of a Consensus Conference is to provide informed guidance on treatment decisions, assisting clinicians to make the optimal therapeutic choice for the patient, and providing protection against unjustified malpractice actions. The First American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) Consensus Conference took place in 1985 and, using a systematic approach, provided recommendations for anti-thrombotic therapy based on published studies, and graded those recommendations on the level of clinical evidence. The European Consensus Conference was convened in 1991 to build on this process. During this period, the main developments included the introduction and widespread use of new thromboprophylactic agents such as low-molecular-weight heparins, and improved risk assessment, including an awareness that outpatients and general medical patients may also be at risk. Subsequently, the recommendations have been carefully reviewed and updated by experts who represent the extensive
Developmental dysplasia of the hip is the preferred term to describe the condition in which the femoral head has an abnormal relationship to the acetabulum. Developmental dysplasia of the hip includes frank dislocation (luxation), partial dislocation (subluxation), instability wherein the femoral head comes in and out of the socket, and an array of radiographic abnormalities that reflect inadequate formation of the acetabulum. Because many of these findings may not be present at birth, the term developmental more accurately reflects the biologic features than does the term congenital. The disorder is uncommon. The earlier a dislocated hip is detected, the simpler and more effective is the treatment. Despite newborn screening programs, dislocated hips continue to be diagnosed later in infancy and childhood,(1-11) in some instances delaying appropriate therapy and leading to a substantial number of malpractice claims. The objective of this guideline is to reduce the number of dislocated

Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome affects at least 1 in 4500 female births.1 The syndrome consists of vaginal aplasia with other müllerian duct abnormalities.
