OBJECTIVE Telephone triage manages patient flow in acute care, but a lack of visual cues and vague descriptions of symptoms challenges clinical decision making. We aim to investigate the association between the caller's subjective perception of illness severity expressed as "degree-of-worry" (DOW) and hospital admissions within 48 h. DESIGN AND SETTING A prospective cohort study was performed from January 24th to February 9th, 2017 at the Medical Helpline 1813 (MH1813) in Copenhagen, Denmark. Th...

Abstract Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial flutter (AFL) are cardiac arrhythmias associated with cardiovascular morbidity. Physical activity (PA) can trigger AF and AFL recurrence, but can also improve physical functional capacity in this patient group. Guidelines do not include concrete recommendations regarding PA for this patient group. Objective To assess the impact of the level of PA on risk of serious adverse events (SAEs) in patients with AF and/or AFL treated with catheter a...

BACKGROUND: The term 'emergency open abdominal surgery' covers a range of common procedures with high complication and mortality risks; however, previous studies have not included descriptive analyses of the patients undergoing the procedures. The aim of this study is to present a nationwide description of all patients who undergo an emergency bowel resection, ostomy placement or drainage involving laparotomy at Danish hospitals and to report the 30- and 365-day mortality risks. METHOD: We ident...

OBJECTIVE: To study long-term gastrointestinal surgical hospital burden (hospital readmissions and gastrointestinal surgical procedures) after laparoscopic gastric bypass. BACKGROUND: Little is known about gastrointestinal surgical hospital burden after laparoscopic gastric bypass. METHODS: Danish patients undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass (BMI >35-50) from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2013 were included (100% follow-up). The nonsurgical reference group were individuals with BMI of ≥ 30 ...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have not explored the effect of HPV vaccination on health status at a longer time interval. Similarly, self-reported physical and mental health in recipients of the HPV vaccine has not been studied. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether HPV vaccination was associated with physical and mental health complaints among girls in secondary education institutions. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: This study used data from girls aged 15-20 years who participated in t...

BACKGROUND: Identification of suboptimal mesh products is essential to improve the outcome after hernia surgery. This study investigated whether a national clinical database combined with administrative registries may serve as a tool for postmarketing evaluation of mesh products for hernia surgery. METHODS: This was a propensity score-matched case-control cohort study comparing outcomes in patients undergoing laparoscopic incisional hernia repair with either one particular mesh or any other synt...
