We report the case of a 69-year-old patient who had undergone a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer and on Day 11 required a diverting colostomy and indwelling catheter for rectal perforation. At three months, a retrograde cystogram and magnetic resonance scan confirmed persistence of a rectourethral fistula. We addressed this problem by performing a trans-sphinteric repair using the York Mason procedure. Read More

This study aims to examine (a) whether there are differences in general practitioners' (GPs) attitudes towards native Belgian patients, patients of foreign descent and asylum seeking patients who all express symptoms of major depression, and (b) whether these differences depend on GPs' experience with cultural competency training and interethnic contact. Using a video vignette study among 404 Flemish (Belgium) GPs, we find evidence of a provider bias. While GPs regard a patient of foreign descent as less trustworthy and less able to adhere to medical recommendations than a native Belgian patient, they also hold more pessimistic views on a potential recovery of an asylum seeking patient.
