Abstract
Venous reconstructions after iatrogenic injuries are rarely performed and are associated with a relatively high risk of complications. We present our experiences with venous reconstructive surgery to the iliofemoral vein segment.
We reviewed ten patients with venous injuries evaluating clinical characteristics, operative and postoperative data including location and type of venous injury, operative repair and outcome. Venous injuries either occurred during varicose vein surgery or other kinds of procedures in the region. The injuries were repaired by interposition with a polytetrafluorethylene graft, and after surgery they were treated with an intermittent pneumatic compression device and anticoagulation medicine. Subsequently, patients were evaluated both clinically and by colour duplex scan.
The mean patient age was 42.5 years (range 26-61 years) with no reported co-morbidity. The median follow-up was 16 months (range 12-157 months). The 30-day patency rate was 70% and the morbidity rate 40%. At the latest follow-up, the venous patency rate was 90% after supplementary treatment.
The study shows a satisfactory outcome despite severe iatrogenic injuries to the iliofemoral vein segment. Venous reconstructive surgery should be a centralized task.

Abstract
This article describes the methods and results of a project in the Copenhagen Hospital Corporation (H:S) on preventing adverse events. The aim of the project was to raise awareness about patients' safety, test a reporting system for adverse events, develop and test methods of analysis of events and propagate ideas about how to prevent adverse events.
H:S developed an action plan and a reporting system for adverse events, founded an organization and developed an educational program on theories and methods of learning from adverse events for both leaders and employees.
During the three-year period from 1 January 2002 to 31 December 2004, the H:S staff reported 6011 adverse events. In the same period, the organization completed 92 root cause analyses. More than half of these dealt with events that had been optional to report, the other half events that had been mandatory to report.
The number of reports and the front-line staff's attitude towards reporting shows that the H:S succeeded in founding a safety culture. Future work should be centred on developing and testing methods that will prevent adverse events from happening. The objective is to suggest and complete preventive initiatives which will help increase patient safety.

Abstract
Discrepancies between clinical and pathological diagnoses (classes 1-3) attributed to subjective factors have been analyzed for the period 1981-1985. The investigation pooled the data from three largest Moscow hospitals: S. P. Botkin, No. 1 and 7. Subjective misdiagnosis comprises from 34 to 45.6% of overall diagnostic discrepancies. As a rule, it resulted from inadequate clinical examination, underestimation of clinical evidence, overestimation of anamnestic data, misinterpretation of laboratory findings and those of consulting physicians as well as provided by adjuvant investigations. The errors of the above kind are most typical for patients over 60. The authors refer these diagnostic discrepancies to iatrogenesis.

Abstract
Recently developed disease mapping and ecological regression methods have become important techniques in studies of disease epidemiology and in health services research. This increase in importance is partially a result of the development of Bayesian statistical methodologies that make it possible to study associations between health problems and risk factors at an aggregate (i.e. areal) level while taking into account such matters as unmeasured confounding and spatial relationships. In this paper we present a demonstration of the joint use of empirical Bayes (EB) and full Bayesian inferential techniques in a small area study of adverse medical events (also known as 'iatrogenic injury') in British Columbia, Canada. In particular, we illustrate a unified Bayesian hierarchical spatial modelling framework that enables simultaneous examinations of potential associations between adverse medical event occurrence and regional characteristics, age effects, residual variation and spatial autocorrelation. We propose an analytic strategy for complementary use of EB and FB inferential techniques for risk assessment and model selection, presenting an EB-FB combined approach that draws on the strengths of each method while minimizing inherent weaknesses. The work was motivated by the need to explore relatively efficient ways to analyse regional variations of health services outcomes and resource utilization when a considerable amount of statistical modelling and inference are required.
