Prevalence of and risk factors for endogenous endophthalmitis in patients with pyogenic liver abscesses
1. The prevalence of endogenous endophthalmitis in patients with pyogenic liver abscesses is 1.92%.
2. The presence of another systemic infection, an abscess in the right superior segment, and Klebsiella pneumoniae infection were significant risk factors for the development of endogenous endophthalmitis in patients with pyogenic liver abscesses.
3. Prompt intervention including intravitreal antibiotic injections or early vitrectomy may salvage useful vision in patients with endogenous endophthalmitis.

Prognostic value of hyponatremia in heart failure patients: an analysis of the Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes in the Relation with Serum Sodium Level in Asian Patients Hospitalized for Heart Failure (COAST) study
1. Hyponatremia is common in among hospitalized Asian heart failure (HF) patients from South Korea, China, and Taiwan, and is associated with a 72% increased risk of 12-month mortality.
2. Hyponatremia is an important predictor of clinical outcomes, irrespective of whether hyponatremia improves during hospital stay.
3. The adherence to evidence-based HF treatment is low in hospitalized Asian HF patients, especially in those with hyponatremia.

Clinical outcomes of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support in patients with hematologic malignancies
1. Patients with hematologic disease who require extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for cardiopulmonary support have poor outcomes.
2. The incidence of complications in patients with hematologic malignancy did not significantly differ from that in immunocompetent patients.
3. The use of ECMO in patients with hematologic disease in whom optimal conventional therapy failed merits further consideration.

2. Low Klotho expression was associated with a poor short-term outcome.

Drug utilization review of mupirocin ointment in a Korean university-affiliated hospital
1. Inappropriate use of mupirocin is prevalent.
2. Mupirocin ointment is inappropriately prescribed mainly as a prophylactic in the dermatology department, especially the outpatient clinic.
3. The rate of mupirocin resistance, especially low-level resistance, among methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates tends to increase with increasing use of mupirocin.
