    Title Screening of Eeg Referrals by Neurologists Leads to Improved Healthcare Resource Utilization.
    Date March 2006
    Journal Clinical Eeg and Neuroscience : Official Journal of the Eeg and Clinical Neuroscience Society (encs)
    Excerpt

    The objective of this study was to determine if screening by a neurologist of all non-neurologist electroencephalogram (EEG) referrals prior to approval reduces the number of inappropriate requests. This retrospective survey included 600 consecutive EEG requisitions referred to the Anaheim Kaiser Permanente Neurodiagnostic Laboratory to rule out epilepsy. Patients with established epilepsy referred for a repeat EEG for management issues were excluded. Three groups of EEG referrals were analyzed. Each group consisted of 200 EEGs (100 pediatric and 100 adult EEGs). The first group was referred directly by non-neurologists, the second group was referred by non-neurologists with scrutiny by a neurologist, and the third group was referred by a neurologist directly. In the pediatric group, the ratio of abnormal EEG vs normal EEG was 1:3.35 in the first group, 1:0.69 in the second group and 1:0.33 in the third group. In the adult group, the ratio of abnormal EEGs vs normal EEGs was 1:2.23 in the first group, 1:0.82 in the second group and 1:0.45 in the third group. In the combined pediatric and adult groups, the ratio of abnormal EEG vs normal EEG was 1:2.70 in the first group, 1:0.75 in the second group and 1:0.39 in the third group. There was a significant difference between the results of the EEGs ordered by non-neurologists directly versus non-neurologists with scrutiny (p=.334, chi-square test). Scrutiny by a neurologist of EEG referrals from non-neurologists led to a reduction in the number of normal EEG results. This suggests that inappropriate EEG requests for non-epileptic patients that yield normal EEG results are significantly reduced with scrutiny. This can help reduce the indiscriminate overuse of EEGs by non-neurologists thereby leading to better utilization of healthcare resources.

    Title Gonococcal Abscess of the Obturator Internal Muscle: Use of New Diagnostic Tools May Eliminate the Need for Surgical Intervention.
    Date August 1995
    Journal Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
    Excerpt

    Obturator internal muscle (OIM) abscess or pyomyositis, a poorly recognized intrapelvic infection, is characterized by limping, pain in the hip with limited movement, and the sciatic type of radiating leg pain. With the use of advanced diagnostic tools such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging, and radionuclide scans, several cases of OIM abscess have been diagnosed; these cases have recently been reported in the English-language literature. Staphylococcus aureus is the predominant organism isolated from OIM abscesses. Gonococcal abscess involving the OIM has not been reported. We describe a case of gonococcal OIM abscess in an adolescent female whose condition was successfully diagnosed and managed with the use of CT-guided needle aspiration and antibiotic therapy. We review the English-language literature regarding the use of newly developed tools in the diagnosis of OIM abscess.

    Title Staphylococcus Epidermidis Meningitis and an Intraspinal Abscess Associated with a Midthoracic Dermal Sinus Tract.
    Date April 1995
    Journal Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
    Excerpt

    Congenital neuroectodermal defects are associated with meningitis that is unresponsive to conventional antibiotic therapy, recurrent bacterial meningitis, or meningitis due to an organism that is not usually the cause of this disease. Midthoracic dermoid and epidermoid cysts occur rarely and are easily overlooked. We report the case of a 13-month-old boy with meningitis that was unresponsive to antimicrobial therapy. We subsequently identified an intraspinal abscess, an infection due to Staphylococcus epidermidis, and a midthoracic dermoid cyst. We emphasize the need for clinicians to have a high index of suspicion and to make a careful physical examination when antibiotic treatment fails in patients with meningitis. We also provide a detailed anatomy of a midthoracic dermoid cyst and illustrate the usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging in preoperative diagnosis of congenital neuroectodermal defects.
