Pay for performance and the management of hypertension

process, the measures should be assessed to consider the extent to which their incentivization would constitute an efficient use of public funds and provide value for money. Cost–effectiveness analysis is one such approach, involving the calculation of costs per quality adjusted life year (QALY). Services with a lower cost per QALY can be considered cost-effective and those with a higher cost per QALY may not be considered cost-effective. This approach is attractive as it allows all measures to be assessed using the same metric, an incremental cost– effectiveness ration

Dyspepsia amongst end stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis: Views from a large tertiary care center

hemodialysis patients when compared to the general population.[ 2 ] Despite its wide prevalence (48–70%), dyspepsia amongst hemodialysis patients has not been thoroughly investigated. Local or systemic circulatory insufficiency, hypergastrinemia and higher levels of ammonia and inflammation have been attributed as the causes of gastric mucosal injury in ESRD. Among the general causes of impaired quality of life, dyspepsia has been shown as a contributing factor.[ 3 ] Out of the various questionnaire available for its evaluation, the Leeds dyspepsia questionnaire (LDQ) has

PTBD is an intervention that is not free of complications. Most common complication following the biliary drainage is drain dislodgement and the need for re-intervention. Other possible complications include pain, biliary leakage around puncture site, hemorrhage, perforation, infections and stent migration. [ 8 , 9 , 15 , 16 ] Therefore, it is really important to
