CONCLUSION:The findings indicate the definition of medical tourism in various articles, and medical tourists are motivated. However, most studies indicate the benefits of medical tourism in developing countries and more developed countries reflect the consequences of medical tourism.

 Los costos financieros y las percepciones de los pacientes de turismo médico en cirugía bariátrica.
Financial costs and patients' perceptions of medical tourism in bariatric surgery.
Can J Surg. 2015 Dec 1;58(6):004215-4215. doi: 10.1503/cjs.004215. [Epub ahead of print]
Responses from medical tourists suggest that they believe their surgeries were successful despite some having postoperative complications and lacking support from medical or surgical teams. We believe that the financial cost of treating complications related to medical tourism in Alberta is substantial and impacts existing limited resources.
 Aumento del riesgo de malignidad postrasplante y mortalidad en los turistas de trasplantesun estudio de cohorte de base poblacional a nivel nacional en Taiwán.
Increased risk of post-transplant malignancy and mortality in transplant tourists: a nationwide population-based cohort study in Taiwan.
Medicine (Baltimore). 2014 Dec;93(29):e344. doi: 10.1097/MD.0000000000000344.
We suggest that a sufficient waiting period for patients with pre-transplant malignancies should be better emphasized to eliminate recurrence, and transplant tourists should be discouraged because of the possibility of higher post-transplant de novo malignancy occurrence and mortality.
Cuartos de hospital con vista: países y clínicas extranjeras están compitiendo para convertirse en destinos para los turistas médicos¿Vale la pena?
Hospital rooms with a view: countries and foreign clinics are vying to become the go-to destinations for medicaltourists. Is it worth it?
Cancer Cytopathol. 2014 Oct;122(10):711-2. doi: 10.1002/cncy.21486.
Hacia el surpor qué los inmigrantes mexicanos en California buscan los servicios de salud en México.
Heading south: why Mexican immigrants in California seek health services in Mexico.
Med Care. 2009 Jun;47(6):662-9. doi: 10.1097/MLR.0b013e318190cc95.
CONCLUSIONS: Mexican immigrants are the most likely to seek medical, dental, and prescription services in Mexico. A large number, but small percentages, of US-born nonLatino whites purchase prescription drugs there. Although proximity facilitates use, access and acceptability barriers in the US medical care system encourage immigrants to seek care in Mexico who would be helped by expanded binational health insurance.

El turismo médico en Malasia¿cómo podemos identificar mejor y administrar sus ventajas y desventajas?
Medical tourism in Malaysia: how can we better identify and manage its advantages and disadvantages?
Glob Health Action. 2014 Sep 10;7:25201. doi: 10.3402/gha.v7.25201. eCollection 2014.
Contemporary debate over the current and potential benefits and adverse effects of medical tourism for destination societies is hamstrung by the scant empirical data currently publicly available. Steps are proposed for overcoming these challenges in order to allow for improved identification, planning, and development of resources appropriate to the needs, demands, and interests of not only medical tourists and big business but also local populations.

Q Fever Outbreak Among Travelers to Germany Who Received Live Cell Therapy--United States and Canada, 2014.

 La utilización transfronteriza de atención de la saludevidencia de un estudio basado en la población en el sur de Texas.
Cross-border utilization of health care: evidence from a population-based study in south Texas.
Health Serv Res. 2011 Jun;46(3):859-76. doi: 10.1111/j.1475-6773.2010.01220.x. Epub 2010 Dec 15.
CONCLUSIONS: The high prevalence of use of health care services in Mexico by Texas border residents is suggestive of unmet needs in health care on the U.S. side of the border. Addressing these unmet needs calls for a binational approach to improve the affordability, accessibility, and quality of health care in the U.S.-Mexico border region.

CONCLUSIONS: New insights into the characteristics of a selected and large population of Swiss international travelers results in improved understanding of the special needs of an increasingly diverse population and, thus, in targeted preventive advice and interventions.
