1. Parotto M, Jiansen JQ, AboTaiban A, Ioukhova S, Agzamov A, Cooper R, O'Leary G, Meineri M: Evaluation of a low-cost, 3D-printed model for bronchoscopy training. Anaesthesiol Intensive Ther; 2017;49(3):189-197

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Flexible bronchoscopy is a fundamental procedure in anaesthesia and critical care medicine.
  • Although learning this procedure is a complex task, the use of simulation-based training provides significant advantages, such as enhanced patient safety.
  • Upon completion of the simulator tests, participants were administered the 15-item questionnaire (post-test) once again.
  • RESULTS: The time needed to complete all tasks was 152.9 ± 71.5 sec on the 1st attempt vs. 98.7 ± 40.3 sec on the 4th attempt (P = 0.03).
  • The average number of correct answers in the questionnaire was 6.8 ± 1.9 pre-test and 13.3 ± 3.1 post-test (P < 0.0001).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: 24 healthy patients who required a simple dental extraction underwent to a blood test and motorization of their pre- and post-extraction vital signs before, at 2 and 48 hours after the procedure.
  • Data analysis was performed by means of repeated measures one way ANOVA followed by multiple comparisons Bonferroni's Post-hoc test.
  • RESULTS: The evaluated patients were 13 women and 11 men with an average age of 35.1.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Eventual alterations found after simple tooth extraction should not be attributed to the procedure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A facile strategy for fabrication of aggregation-induced emission (AIE) active fluorescent polymeric nanoparticles (FPNs) via post modification of synthetic polymers and their cell imaging.
  • Herein, we proposed a novel strategy for fabrication of AIE-active FPNs through the post modification of synthetic copolymers to form Schiff base.
  • Results demonstrated that SA-poly(PEG-co-VA) FPNs possess bright fluorescence, superior photo-bleaching resistance, excellent biocompatibility and efficient cell uptake behavior.
  • To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report for fabrication AIE-active FPNs through post modification of synthetic copolymers.
  • The facile fabrication procedure and the remarkable features suggested that these AIE-active FPNs promising candidates for biomedical applications.

6. Kemp J, Moore K, Fransen M, Russell T, Freke M, Crossley KM: A pilot randomised clinical trial of physiotherapy (manual therapy, exercise, and education) for early-onset hip osteoarthritis post-hip arthroscopy. Pilot Feasibility Stud; 2018;4:16

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A pilot randomised clinical trial of physiotherapy (manual therapy, exercise, and education) for early-onset hip osteoarthritis post-hip arthroscopy.
  • BACKGROUND: Despite the increasing use of hip arthroscopy for hip pain, there is no level 1 evidence to support physiotherapy rehabilitation programs following this procedure.
  • The aims of this study were to determine (i) what is the feasibility of a randomised controlled trial (RCT) investigating a targeted physiotherapy intervention for early-onset hip osteoarthritis (OA) post-hip arthroscopy?
  • Patients included 17 volunteers (nine women; age 32 ± 8 years; body mass index = 25.6 ± 5.1 kg/m<sup>2</sup>) who were recruited 4-14 months post-hip arthroscopy, with chondropathy and/or labral pathology at the time of surgery.
  • RESULTS: Seventeen out of 48 eligible patients (35%) were randomised.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results support the feasibility of a full-scale RCT, and recommendations for an adequately powered and improved study to determine the efficacy of this physiotherapy intervention post-hip arthroscopy to reduce pain and improve function are provided.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the technical feasibility, procedural safety, and long-term therapeutic efficacy of a small-sized ambulatory thoracic vent (TV) device for the treatment of pneumothorax.
  • RESULTS: Technical success was achieved in all patients.
  • All patients tolerated the procedure and no major complications occurred.
  • Early surgical conversion rate of 16.7% (3/18 patients) occurred in 2 patients with incomplete lung expansion and 1 patient with immediate pneumothorax recurrence post-TV removal; and late surgical conversion occurred in 2 of 18 patients (11.1%).
  • CONCLUSION: TV application was a simple, safe, and technically feasible procedure in an outpatient clinic, with an acceptable long-term recurrence-free rate.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Tonsillitis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Guidelines for inpatient admission after pediatric tonsillectomy have been proposed to improve the safety of this procedure.
  • Procedures associated with an inpatient facility stay were classified as inpatient adenotonsillectomies.
  • Secondary outcomes were revisits within 7 days and >7 days post-discharge.
  • Logistic regression was used to test for association between inpatient procedure and need for revisits.
  • RESULTS: Adenotonsillectomies in 8835 girls and 7773 boys (age 6.8 ± 3.8 years) were analyzed, of which 842 (5%) were inpatient procedures.
  • In multivariable analysis, inpatient and outpatient procedures had comparable need for 30-day revisits (OR = 0.85; 95% CI: 0.69, 1.05; p = 0.124).
  • In sub-analyses, inpatient adenotonsillectomy was associated with lower odds of early (≤7 days post-discharge; OR = 0.76; 95% CI: 0.58, 0.99; p = 0.045) but not later (≥8 days) revisits.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In a pediatric Medicaid population, inpatient adenotonsillectomy was not associated with greater odds of acute care revisits, compared to outpatient procedures.

J Chromatogr Sci; 2017 Sep 01;55(8):839-845

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A new type of partially substituted 3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate-(3-(2-O-β-cyclodextrin)-2-hydroxypropoxy)-propylsilyl-appended silica particles (MP-CD-HPS) have been prepared by a convenient post-immobilization derivazition procedure.
  • The chromatographic evaluation results show that the MP-CD-HPS has excellent selectivity for the separation of aromatic positional isomers and enantiomers of some chiral compounds.
  • The multi-mode HPLC separation results also indicate that both the stable ether spacer linking to the wider torus rim of β-cyclodextrin in the MP-CD-HPS phase and the hydroxyl residues in the partially substituted β-cyclodextrin have important contributions to chiral recognitions and chromatographic separations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A standard peripheral nerve stimulator provides several patterns of nerve stimulation, including train-of-four (TOF), double-burst, tetanic, and post-tetanic count.
  • Qualitative (and quantitative) monitors are needed to determine onset of neuromuscular blockade, maintain the required depth of muscle relaxation during the surgical procedure, and assess an appropriate dose of reversal agent.
  • Quantitative monitors are devices that measure and quantify the degree of muscle weakness and display the results numerically.
  • As clinical tests of muscle strength, peripheral nerve stimulators are unable to determine whether full recovery of neuromuscular function is present at the end of the surgical procedure.

20. Mannan R, Pruthi A, Khanduja S: Comparison of surgeon comfort assessment during phacoemulsification using bilateral topical anesthesia versus ipsilateral topical anesthesia: a randomized controlled study. Int Ophthalmol; 2017 Jun 14;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of bilateral use of topical anesthetic eye drops during phacoemulsification procedure as compared to use in one eye only.
  • Main parameters evaluated included number of intra-operative patient counseling score (IPCS), surgical comfort score (SCS), total phacoemulsification procedure time (TPPT) and total operation time (TOPT).
  • RESULTS: A comparison of mean value of various variables between Group 1 (60; 33.3% cases) and Group 2 (120; 66.7% cases) using "t" test revealed that there was a statistically significant difference for mean SCS (78.38 ± 10.31 vs. 85.05 ± 8.70; p = 0.00), mean IPCS (12.60 ± 3.11 vs. 6.63 ± 1.74; p = 0.00) and mean TOPT (418.88 ± 89.59 vs. 341.64 ± 79.51; p = 0.00), respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Simultaneous instillation of topical anesthetic eye drops in both the eyes, i.e., operating eye and the fellow eye as against practice of instilling topical anesthetic eye drop in the operating eye only, helps in decreasing the total surgical time by primarily shortening the durations of pre- and post-ultrasonic periods of surgery where effective globe stabilization is wanted.

  • [Title] SU-F-I-77: Radiation Dose in Cardiac Catheterization Procedures: Impact of a Systematic Reduction in Pulsed Fluoroscopy Frame Rate.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate whether one small systematic reduction in fluoroscopy frame rate has a significant effect on the total air kerma and/or dose area product for diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization procedures.
  • A total of 7212 consecutive diagnostic and interventional CCL procedures were divided into two study groups: 3602 procedures from 10/1/12 -6/30/13 with FFR of 15 fps; and 3610 procedures 7/1/13 - 3/31/14 at 10 fps.
  • For each procedure, total air kerma (TAK), fluoroscopy skin dose (FSD), total/fluoroscopy dose area products (TAD, FAD), and total fluoroscopy time (FT) were recorded.
  • Patient specific data collected for each procedure included: BSA, sex, height, weight, interventional versus diagnostic; and elective versus emergent.
  • RESULTS: For pre to post change in FFR, each categorical variable was compared using Pearson's Chi-square test, Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals.
  • No statistically significant difference in BSA, height, weight, number of interventional versus diagnostic, elective versus emergent procedures was found between the two study groups.

  • [Title] Neurological results of the modified treatment of epilepsy by stimulation of the vagus nerve.
  • We tried to improve VNS by modifying the implantation procedure.
  • METHODS: We operated on 74 pediatric patients for VNS device implantation using a modified surgical protocol incorporating lower neck incision for electrode placement and 36 patients who were operated by standard technique were used for control group.
  • We retrospectively analyzed reduction in frequency of seizures, reduction in severity of seizures (assessed by the shortened Ictal/post-ictal subscale of the Liverpool Seizure Severity Scale that included falling to the ground, postictal headache and sleepiness, incontinence, tongue biting, and injury during attack).
  • RESULTS: Using the new implantation technique, side effects related directly to VNS therapy occurred in six cases (8.1%) showing statistically sound improvement over the standard implantation technique (p ˂ 0.05).
  • To achieve good results, the maximum stimulation (3.5 mA) was used in 24 patients (32.4%), with no laryngeal side effects detected.
  • A low rate of laryngeal side effects allows using the VNS device to its full electrical capacity.

26. Hahn KY, Park JC, Lee YK, Shin SK, Lee SK, Lee YC: Efficacy of hemostatic powder in preventing bleeding after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection in high-risk patients. J Gastroenterol Hepatol; 2017 Sep 14;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: The prevention of post-endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) bleeding in high-risk patients is an important problem.
  • This study evaluated the efficacy of polysaccharide hemostatic powder in preventing post-ESD bleeding in high-risk patients.
  • METHODS: Patients at high risk for post-ESD bleeding were prospectively enrolled between December 2015 and July 2016.
  • A high risk of post-ESD bleeding was considered if the patients were taking antithrombotic agents or had undergone a large resection (specimen size ≥ 40mm).
  • The endpoints were Forrest classification of the post-ESD ulcer on second-look endoscopy two days after the procedure and bleeding rates within 48 hours and at four weeks.
  • RESULTS: Forty-four patients underwent gastric ESD and treatment with hemostatic powder.
  • The median (interquartile range, IQR) timing of bleeding after the procedure was 12.5 (IQR 10.3-15.5) days.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hemostatic powder may be a promising new simple and effective method to prevent early post-ESD bleeding in high-risk patients, especially for those with larger resection. (Clinical trial registration number: NCT02625792).

  • [Title] Per oral endoscopic pyloromyotomy for refractory gastroparesis: initial results from a single institution.
  • Herein, we detail the short-term results of POP at our institution.
  • All patients underwent a 4-h, non-extrapolated gastric emptying scintigraphy study and were asked to rate their symptoms using the Gastroparesis Cardinal Symptom Index (GCSI) at their pre-procedure visit and at 3 months post-procedure.
  • RESULTS: A total of 47 patients underwent POP during the defined study period.
  • Twenty-seven (57.4%) patients had idiopathic gastroparesis, 12 (25.6%) had diabetic gastroparesis, and eight (17.0%) had post-surgical gastroparesis.
  • All patients had evidence of gastroparesis on pre-procedure gastric emptying studies.
  • One patient died within 30-days of their index procedure which was unrelated to the procedure itself.
  • The average pre-procedure percentage of retained food at 4 h was 37% compared to an average post-procedure percentage of 20% (p < 0.03).
  • The average pre-procedure GCSI score was 4.6 compared to an average post-procedure GCSI of 3.3 (p < 0.001).

  • [Title] Immediate, immediate-delayed (6 weeks) and delayed (4 months) post-extractive single implants: 1-year post-loading data from a randomised controlled trial.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two-hundred and ten (210) patients requiring a single implant-supported crown to replace a tooth to be extracted were randomised to receive immediate post-extractive implants (70 patients), immediate-delayed implants at 6 weeks (70 patients), and delayed implants after 4 months of healing (70 patients) according to a parallel group design.
  • Patients were followed up to 1 year post-loading.
  • RESULTS: One year after loading, three patients dropped out from the immediate group, five from the immediate-delayed group, and six from the delayed group.
  • All patients were fully satisfied both with function and aesthetics, and would undergo the same procedure again, with four exceptions (one from the immediate, one from the immediate-delayed and two from the delayed group), who were only partially satisfied with aesthetics (P = 0.785).
  • Bone level changes were similar between the different procedures, but aesthetics were better results at immediate and immediate-delayed implants.
  • Conflict-of-interest statement: This trial was partially funded by Nobel Biocare Services (code: 2010-894), the manufacturer of the implants evaluated in this investigation; however, data belonged to the authors and by no means did the manufacturer interfere with the conduct of the trial or the publication of the results.

  • We reviewed their presentations, investigations, preoperative counselling records, operative details and post-operative clinical records to audit our results and hence to document our experiences in septorhinoplasties.
  • There were no major post-operative complications except persistent edema with longest lasting for 23 weeks.
  • Thermal splints gave a better patient satisfaction in post-op compared to POP splints.
  • Results were completely and partially satisfying for 50 patients and not satisfying for three.
  • Unrealistic expectations from the procedure might be the reason for non-satisfactory results in rhinoplasty.
  • Rhinoplasty is a delicate procedure and has greater aesthetic implications in planning surgical techniques and approaches.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. Riboflavin .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Collagen cross-linking (CXL) is a commonly performed procedure to prevent the progression of keratoconus.
  • Riboflavin is an essential part of the procedure, which facilitates both the cross-linking process and protection of intraocular structures.
  • RESULTS: Six eyes of 4 male patients with keratoconus aged from 20 to 38 years underwent CXL with substitution of 20% dextran (T-500) with 20% dextran sulfate in a compounded riboflavin 0.1% solution.
  • Corneal transplantation was performed for visual rehabilitation but was complicated by graft rejection followed by failure (n = 1 eye), dehiscence (n = 4), cataract (n = 2), post-laser ablation haze (n = 1), and steroid-induced glaucoma (n = 2).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Substitution of dextran (T-500) with dextran sulfate in riboflavin solutions during CXL results in loss of vision from permanent corneal opacity.
  • Residual host changes may compromise the results of corneal transplantation.

  • [Title] Effect of Antithrombotic Therapy and Long Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection Procedure Time on Early and Delayed Postoperative Bleeding.
  • We aimed to evaluate whether certain factors including interrupted antithrombotic therapy could affect early and delayed post-ESD bleeding risk.
  • Various clinical characteristics such as gender, age, tumor location, tumor size, ESD procedure time, platelet count, and comorbidity were evaluated.
  • RESULTS: There was a significant difference (p = 0.042) in the ESD procedure time between the patients with postoperative bleeding and those without it.
  • In addition, in univariate analysis, ESD procedure time was significantly (p = 0.041) associated with delayed postoperative bleeding.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Antithrombotic therapy and prolonged ESD procedure time were significantly associated with early and delayed postoperative bleeding, respectively.

Alzheimers Dement (Amst); 2017;8:111-126

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Reluctance to perform the procedure is among others due to a lack of standards and guidelines to minimize the risk of complications, such as post-LP headache or back pain.
  • METHODS: We provide consensus guidelines for the LP procedure to minimize the risk of complications.
  • The recommendations are based on (1) data from a large multicenter LP feasibility study (evidence level II-2), (2) systematic literature review on LP needle characteristics and post-LP complications (evidence level II-2), (3) discussion of best practice within the Joint Programme Neurodegenerative Disease Research Biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's Disease and Biomarkers for Multiple Sclerosis consortia (evidence level III).
  • RESULTS: Our consensus guidelines address contraindications, as well as patient-related and procedure-related risk factors that can influence the development of post-LP complications.
  • DISCUSSION: When an LP is performed correctly, the procedure is well tolerated and accepted with a low complication rate.

  • [Title] Inpatient and 90-day post-discharge outcomes in elective Medicare spine fusion surgery.
  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Elective spine surgery is a commonly performed operative procedure, that requires knowledge of risk-adjusted results to improve outcomes and reduce costs.
  • PURPOSE: To develop risk-adjusted models to predict the adverse outcomes (AOs) of care during the inpatient and 90-day post-discharge period for spine fusion surgery.
  • OUTCOME MEASURES: The risk-adjusted AOs of inpatient deaths, prolonged length-of-stay for the index hospitalization, 90-day post-discharge deaths, and 90-day post-discharge readmissions were dependent variables in predictive risk models.
  • RESULTS: There were 874 hospitals with a minimum of both 20 cervical and 20 non-cervical spine fusion patients.

  • OBJECTIVE: The looped thread carpal tunnel release (TCTR) procedure is a minimally invasive percutaneous technique performed under ultrasound (US) to transect the transverse carpal ligament in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • DESIGN: Fourteen lightly embalmed cadaveric distal forearm-hand specimens were subject to US identification of key landmarks, TCTR procedure, and post-TCTR dissection.
  • Outcome measures of interest were (1) correspondence between key landmarks (median nerve and 4 bony pillars of transverse carpal ligament) identified on US and anatomical structures exposed by dissection, (2) percentage of the transverse carpal ligament transected and location of the transection, (3) frequency of damage to adjacent structures, (4) time to complete procedure, and (5) operator assessment of technical difficulty of each TCTR procedure (0 = extremely easy, 10 = extremely difficult). RESULTS:.
  • In the remaining 5 specimens, an average of 68.8% of the ligament was transected. (3) No adjacent structures were damaged. (4) Time to complete the procedure was on average 9.9 ± 4.6 minutes. (5) Average procedural difficulty was 4.3/10.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Thread carpal tunnel release is potentially a safe, quick, and effective procedure to transect the transverse carpal ligament.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Two-year post-discharge costs of care among patients treated with transcatheter or surgical aortic valve replacement in Germany.
  • BACKGROUND: This study presents data on post-discharge costs of care among patients treated with transcatheter or surgical aortic valve replacement over a two year period.
  • METHODS: Based on a prospective clinical trial, post-discharge utilization of health services and status of assistance were collected for 151 elderly patients via 2250 monthly telephone interviews, valued using standardized unit costs and analysed using two-part regression models.
  • RESULTS: At month 1 post-discharge, total costs of care are substantially elevated (monthly mean: €3506.7) and then remain relatively stable over the following 23 months (monthly mean: €622.3).
  • As expected, the majority of these costs are related to in-hospital care (~98% in month 1 post-discharge and ~72% in months 2-24).
  • The estimated costs of nursing care are, in contrast, much higher in year 2 than in year 1 and differ substantially by gender and type of procedure as well as by patients' age.
  • Overall, these monthly cost estimates add up to €10,352 for the first and €7467.6 for the second year post-discharge.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Substantial cost increases at month 1 post-discharge and in case of death during follow-up are the main findings of the study, which should be taken into account in future economic evaluations on the topic.
  • Application of standardized unit costs in combination with monthly patient interviews allows for a far more precise estimate of the variability in post-discharge health service utilization in this group of patients than the ones given in previous studies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PROCEDURE: Nine Sinclair swine (weight 3-7 kg; Sinclair BioResources, Columbia, MO, USA) with naturally occurring melanoma were examined.
  • The mean intensity difference pre- to post-bubble destruction within the region of interest placed over SLN was calculated as a relative measure of targeted microbubble contrast agent retention.
  • RESULTS: A total of 43 lymph nodes (25 SLNs and 18 non-SLNs) were included in the analysis with 18 SLNs demonstrating metastatic involvement greater than 5 % on histology.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that dual-targeted microbubbles labeled with P-selectin and α<sub>ν</sub>β<sub>3</sub>-integrin antibodies may aid in detecting metastatic involvement in SLNs of melanoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Comparison of post-creation procedures and costs between surgical and an endovascular approach to arteriovenous fistula creation.
  • INTRODUCTION: Due to early and late failures that may occur with surgically created hemodialysis arteriovenous fistulas (SAVF), post-creation procedures are commonly required to facilitate AVF maturation and maintain patency.
  • This study compared AVF post-creation procedures and their associated costs in patients with SAVF to patients with a new endovascularly created AVF (endoAVF).
  • METHODS: A 5% random sample from Medicare Standard Analytical Files was abstracted to determine post-creation procedures and associated costs for SAVF created from 2011 to 2013.
  • Patients' follow-up inpatient, outpatient, and physician claims were used to identify post-creation procedures and to estimate average procedure costs.
  • RESULTS: Of 3764 Medicare SAVF patients, 60 successfully matched to endoAVF patients using 1:1 propensity score matching of baseline demographic and clinical characteristics.
  • The total post-creation procedural event rate within 1 year was lower for endoAVF patients (0.59 per patient-year) compared to the matched SAVF cohort (3.43 per patient-year; p<0.05).
  • The average first year cost per patient-year associated with post-creation procedures was estimated at US$11,240 USD lower for endoAVF than for SAVF.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Compared to patients with SAVF, patients with endoAVF required fewer post-creation procedures and had lower associated mean costs within the first year.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv; 2017 May 22;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Identifying new predictors of mortality in the TAVR population can help refine risk stratification and improve the patient selection process for this procedure.
  • RESULTS: During a mean follow-up of 1.8 years, baseline AVG was inversely associated with mortality in the entire cohort and in patients with high AVG AS.
  • Analyses among patients with high (mean AVG >40 mm Hg) and very high AVG AS (mean AVG >60 mm Hg) yielded similar results (HR = 0.88, P = 0.031, and HR = 0.80, P = 0.019, per 10 mm Hg increase in AVG, respectively).
  • Using peak AVGs and an analysis restricted to patients without reduced ejection fraction yielded consistent results.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Baseline AVGs show an inverse association with mortality post-TAVR.
  • These results were consistent also in patients with high-gradient AS, suggesting that AVG can be used to identify patients most likely to benefit from TAVR.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Percutaneous Image-Guided Pancreatic Duct Drainage: Technique, Results and Expected Benefits.
  • RESULTS: The percutaneous drainage of obstructed PD was completed in 29 (96.7%) patients as an independent therapeutic intent or as a bridge to further percutaneous procedures.
  • Clinical improvement following drainage was documented by the gradual reduction in clinical symptoms, including pain, nausea and fever and improved blood test results, showing the significant decrease of amylase concentration.
  • The amount of pancreatic fluid drained post procedure was between 300 and 900 mL/day.
  • No major procedure-related complications were observed.
  • Subsequently, 14 of 29 patients underwent further procedures, including endoluminal placement of metal stent with or without radiofrequency ablation, balloon assisted percutaneous descending litholapaxy (BAPDL), endoluminal biopsy and balloon dilatation using the same drainage tract.
  • CONCLUSION: The percutaneous PD drainage appears to be a safe and effective procedure.
  • The procedure can also be contemplated either as an independent treatment option or as an initial step for the subsequent therapeutic endoluminal procedures.

Circulation; 2017 Jul 07;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • <b><i>Background</i></b> -In infants requiring three-stage single ventricle palliation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome, attrition after the Norwood procedure remains significant.
  • We hypothesized that an optimal interval between the Norwood and S2P that both minimizes pre-S2P attrition and maximizes post-S2P survival exists and is associated with individual patient characteristics.
  • To account for staged procedures, risk-adjusted, three-year, post-Norwood TFS (the probability of TFS at three years given survival to S2P) was calculated using parametric conditional survival analysis.
  • The optimal timing of S2P was determined by generating nomograms of risk-adjusted, three-year, post-Norwood, TFS versus the interval from the Norwood to S2P.
  • <b><i>Results</i></b> -Of 547 included patients, 399 survived to S2P (73%).
  • <b><i>Conclusions</i></b> -In infants with few risk factors, progressing to S2P at three to six months after the Norwood procedure was associated with maximal TFS.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIMS: To compare the long-term outcomes of non-thymomatous myasthenia gravis (MG) patients receiving pre-thymectomy (Pre-CS) or post-thymectomy corticosteroid (Post-CS) therapy.
  • METHODS: In a retrospective cohort study, 41 patients with MG were treated with Pre-CS therapy, and 110 were treated with Post-CS therapy.
  • RESULTS: In the MG cohorts, 9 of 40 patients (22.5%) in the Pre-CS group vs. 28 of 105 patients (26.7%) in the Post-CS group achieved a complete remission (CR) at 1 year, 29.7% (11/37) vs. 38.6% (32/83) at 2 years and 36.4% (8/22) in the Pre-CS group vs. 50.0% (28/56) in the Post-CS group achieved a CR at 5 years.
  • For the entire population, Post-CS therapy (hazard rate [HR] 3.042, p = 0.020) was a positive predictor for remission, and a long preoperative interval (HR 0.936, p = 0.030) was a negative predictor.
  • In 98 original ocular MG patients, Post-CS therapy (HR 2.663, p = 0.014) and an age at onset ≥15 years (HR 4.865, p = 0.001) were positive predictors for remission.
  • DISCUSSION: Post-CS therapy with a shorter preoperative interval increases the likelihood of CR in postpubertal and adult patients.

Kaier K, Reinecke H, Naci H, Frankenstein L, Bode M, Vach W, Hehn P, Zirlik A, Zehender M, Reinöhl J: The impact of post-procedural complications on reimbursement, length of stay and mechanical ventilation among patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation in Germany. Eur J Health Econ; 2017 Feb 22;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The impact of post-procedural complications on reimbursement, length of stay and mechanical ventilation among patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation in Germany.
  • BACKGROUND: The impact of various post-procedural complications after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) on resource use and their consequences in the German reimbursement system has still not been properly quantified.
  • METHODS: In a retrospective observational study, we use data from the German DRG statistic on patient characteristics and in-hospital outcomes of all isolated TAVI procedures in 2013 (N = 9147).
  • The impact of post-procedural complications on reimbursement, length of stay and mechanical ventilation was analyzed using both unadjusted and risk-adjusted linear and logistic regression analyses.
  • RESULTS: A total of 235 (2.57%) strokes, 583 (6.37%) bleeding events, 474 (5.18%) cases of acute kidney injury and 1428 (15.61%) pacemaker implantations were documented.
  • The predicted reimbursement of an uncomplicated TAVI procedure was €33,272, and bleeding events were associated with highest additional reimbursement (€12,839, p < 0.001), extra length of stay (14.58 days, p < 0.001), and increased likelihood of mechanical ventilation for more than 48 h (OR 17.91, p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Post procedural complications such as bleeding events, acute kidney injuries and strokes are associated with increased resource use and substantial amounts of additional reimbursement in Germany, which has important implications for decision making outside of the usual clinical sphere.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cases of post-polio syndrome, type 1 diabetes, and chronic cardiomyopathy were investigated.
  • As tissue-based approaches require invasive procedures, information was mainly gleaned from virus in blood.
  • Results of RT-PCR and sequencing were confirmed by staining cell cultures with a panel of EV-specific antibodies.
  • Sequence and phylogenetic analysis showed that EVs of the C species (polioviruses) were associated with the post-polio syndrome, while members of the B species were found in type 1 diabetes and cardiomyopathy.
  • The procedure may be used for investigating the possible association of different EVs with a variety of chronic neurologic, endocrine, and cardiac disorders.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Furthermore, the possible involvement of harmaline on GABA<sub>B</sub> receptor's effects was also assessed through using the same behavioral procedure.
  • In a first dose response experiments, post-training intra-CA1 injections of phaclofen did not change while baclofen (0.1μg/mouse) impaired animals' performance in this task, suggesting a modulation of storage of information.
  • Moreover, Post-training intra-peritoneal (i.p.) infusion of harmaline (2 and 5mg/kg) also decreased memory consolidation.
  • These results indicate a) that the CA1 GABA<sub>B</sub> receptors are involved in memory consolidation b) that harmaline interact with the CA1 GABA<sub>B</sub> receptors in modulation of memory consolidation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Venipuncture procedure affects heart rate variability and chronotropic response.
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate changes of HRV indexes and heart rate (HR) during and following a venipuncture procedure among healthy individuals.
  • Testing included 10-minute HRV analysis prior to the venipuncture, a 1-minute venipuncture procedure followed by a 10-minute analysis of HRV, and a total recording of 21 minutes.
  • The first 5 minutes of the 21-minute recordings were discarded, and the remaining 5 minutes of the resting segment was analyzed (PRE), and the last 5 minutes of the 21-minute recording (POST).
  • HR was measured in 1-minute segments at 2 minutes prior (PRE), venipuncture (STICK), and post (P1-5).
  • RESULTS: HR significantly increased at STICK (P = 0.002), and fell below resting at P-5 (P < 0.001).
  • lnRMSSD and lnHF increased significantly by POST (P < 0.001, P = 0.005).
  • lnLF/HF ratio significantly decreased at POST (P = 0.047), while no significant changes occurred for lnLF (P = 0.590).
  • CONCLUSIONS: HRV and HR are influenced for 10 minutes following the venipuncture procedure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Arthroscopic Bankart repair (ABR) provides satisfactory results for recurrent anterior shoulder instability, but the high recurrence rate post-ABR remain a concern.
  • One of the adjunct procedures proposed to improve ABR results is arthroscopic rotator interval closure (ARIC).
  • This study prospectively evaluated the outcomes of ABRs alone compared to combined ABR + ARIC and identified risk factors related to failure of each procedure.
  • RESULTS: The re-dislocation rate was higher in the ABR + ARIC group compared to the ABR only group at a mean follow-up of 4.2 (2-5.6) years (3 vs. 0, P = 0.06).
  • Remplissage procedures were performed more often in the ABR only group [12 (60%) vs. 4 (21%), P = 0.013].
  • Adding a remplissage procedure may achieve better stability.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Risk factors and outcomes of cerebrospinal fluid overdrainage in HIV-negative patients with cryptococcal meningitis after the ventriculoperitoneal shunting procedure.
  • PURPOSE: Shunt procedures used to treat cryptococcal meningitis complicated with hydrocephalus and/or increased intracranial pressure (IICP) could result in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) overdrainage, thereby presenting therapeutic challenges.
  • METHODS: We analyzed the clinical features and neuroimaging findings after the ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt procedure in 51 HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)-negative patients with cryptococcal meningitis, to assess the risk factors associated with post-shunt CSF overdrainage.
  • RESULTS: Symptomatic CSF overdrainage occurred in 12% (6/51) of patients with cryptococcal meningitis who underwent the shunt procedure.
  • Rapid deterioration of neurological conditions was found in 6 patients after the shunt procedure was performed, including disturbed consciousness, quadriparesis, and dysphasia in 5 patients and severe ataxia in 1.
  • The mean duration of CSF overdrainage after the shunting procedure was 2-7 days (mean 4 days).
  • The mean interval between meningitis onset to shunting procedure remained independently associated with CSF overdrainage, and the cut-off value for predicting CSF overdrainage in interval between meningitis onset to shunting procedure was 67.5 days.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CSF overdrainage after the VP shunt procedure is not rare, especially in patients with a high-risk of cryptococcal meningitis who also have a prolonged duration of hydrocephalus and/or IICP.

  • [Title] Investigation of the speech results of posterior pharyngeal wall augmentation with fat grafting for treatment of velopharyngeal insufficiency.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the speech results of posterior pharyngeal wall augmentation (PPWA) with fat grafting both in the early and late postoperative period, and to clarify the impact of the procedure concomitant with speech therapy.
  • All the participants received concurrent speech therapy four times, twice in the post-operative period between 1 and 3 months and twice between 3 and 6 months.
  • RESULTS: PPWA improved the speech performance from the 18th month to 24th month of the postoperative period.
  • AAT assessment of the first group after 24 months comparing the post-PPWA with the preoperative data showed a highly significant decrease with regard to compensatory production errors and hypernasality; however, in the second group, the same comparison revealed a highly significant decrease in regard to the degree of hypernasality and a significant difference in terms of glottal articulation and pharyngealization of fricatives.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Available literatures have shown laparoscopic technique to be better in term of post-operative pain and early return to work.
  • Primarily, the duration of operation, post-operative pain and complication, and quality of life after surgery was compared between the two different approaches of hernia repair.
  • RESULTS: The study results demonstrated a statistically significant superiority of trans abdominal pre-peritoneal repair over Lichtenstein's hernioplasty in terms of post operative pain (2.00±0.63 vs 3.90±0.74 VAS score, P value<0.001), hospital stay (2.33±0.62 vs 2.96±0.20 days, P value <0.001) and quality of life with early return to normal work (13.39±0.60 vs 17.88±0.86 days, P value <0.001); whereas a prolonged operative time was seen in transabdominal pre-peritoneal repair (96.08±27.08 vs 42.55±5.95 mins, P value <0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has shown that transabdominal pre-peritoneal repair is better than Lichtenstein's in respect to post-operative pain, quality of life and post-operative complication.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Incidence and Clinical Impact of Cerebral Lesions after the MitraClip® Procedure.
  • Neurological testing with the assessment of global cognitive function was performed three days before and two days after the procedure.
  • All patients underwent cerebral diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) two days after the procedure.
  • RESULTS: In nine patients, post-interventional MRI revealed newly acquired microembolic cerebral lesions.
  • At follow up MRI scans recorded at 307 ± 270 days after the procedure, ischemic scars were not detectable in any patient.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The MitraClip procedure results in acute cerebral lesions in the vast majority of patients.
  • All lesions seen on DWI post-procedure resolved completely, but the number of lesions may have had an impact on cognitive function.

80. Johnson B, Rylander M, Beres AL: Do X-rays after chest tube removal change patient management? J Pediatr Surg; 2017 May;52(5):813-815

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pneumothoraces, pleural effusions, and many surgical procedures require placement of a chest tube/pigtail catheter.
  • Our hypothesis is the "post pull" x-ray rarely results in changing clinical management of the patient.
  • Primary outcome was whether the "post pull" x-ray changed clinical management.
  • RESULTS: A total of 179 episodes were evaluated.
  • Forty-nine tubes/pigtails were placed for pneumothorax, 48 for pleural effusion/empyema, 9 for hemothorax, and 51 during operative procedure.
  • A median of 5 x-rays was done post insertion.
  • 99% of the patients (160/162) had a "post pull" x-ray performed after tube removal.

82. Roh DS, Treiser MD, Lafleur EH, Chun YS: Technique to Promote Symmetry in 2-Staged Bilateral Breast Reconstruction in the Setting of Unilateral Postmastectomy Radiation. Ann Plast Surg; 2017 Apr;78(4):386-391

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The planned PMRT side TE was overexpanded and second-stage exchanges were performed 6+ months post-PMRT.
  • RESULTS: Post-PMRT results showed improved symmetry as the PMRT side migrated superiorly to match the contralateral non-irradiated side.
  • Minimal pocket or IMF adjustments were required during second-stage procedures, with just 6 patients (24%) requiring minor lowering and 1 patient (4%) requiring elevation of the PMRT side IMF.
  • Thus, most (72%) patients undergoing bilateral mastectomy and unilateral PMRT did not require any IMF modifications during the second-stage procedure.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A differential ADM inset and TE pocket creation for bilateral TE/ADM breast reconstructions with planned unilateral PMRT can minimize the typical adverse aesthetic effects of PMRT on reconstruction results and maximize symmetry.

83. Nadeem M, Ather MH: Effect of diclofenac suppository on pain control during flexible cystoscopy-A randomized controlled trial. F1000Res; 2016;5:2834

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • <b>TRIAL DESIGN:</b> To compare the difference in pain score during flexible cystoscopy between patients undergoing the procedure with plain lubricating gel  only and plain gel with diclofenac suppository in a randomized control trial.
  • In group "A", patients received diclofenac suppository one hour prior to the procedure while group "B" did not receive diclofenac suppository.
  • Pain score was recorded immediately after the procedure using the visual analogue scale (VAS).
  • Pre- and post-procedure pulse rate and systolic blood pressure was also recorded.
  • <b>RESULTS</b>: Both groups were comparable for variables including age, duration of procedure, level of operating surgeon and indication of procedure.
  •   The difference in post-procedure mean pulse rate in the two groups was statistically significant ( <i>p</i>= 0.01) however there was no difference observed in mean post procedure systolic blood pressure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIM: To evaluate the value of blood testing after elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy and its association with procedure related complications.
  • In our institution the decision to perform postoperative blood analysis is left for the discretion of the surgeon, therefore we had the possibility to compare the results of those who had blood analyses results to those who did not.
  • Secondary subgroup analysis was performed to identify factors associated with procedure related complications.
  • RESULTS: Five hundred and thirty-two elective laparoscopic cholecystectomies for symptomatic gallstones were performed during the study period.
  • Sixty-four percent of the patients (<i>n</i> = 340) had blood tests taken post operatively.

87. Kim SY, Chim H, Bishop AT, Shin AY: Complications and Outcomes of One-Bone Forearm Reconstruction. Hand (N Y); 2017 Mar;12(2):140-144

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • <b>Results:</b> There were 6 males and 2 females with a mean age of 44 years (range, 20-66 years).
  • The mean QuickDASH score was 39 (range, 7-75), and 4 patients had good or excellent results according to the 10-point score system used by Peterson et al.
  • One patient had post healing fracture requiring revision fixation and 1 had a postoperative infection requiring parenteral antibiotics.
  • <b>Conclusions:</b> OBF surgery is an effective salvage procedure for complicated forearm instability, particularly after trauma.
  • While union rates are high, complications are typically related to pain and soft tissue secondary to the previous injury and reconstructive procedures.

  • [Title] MAGNETIC VT study: a prospective, multicenter, post-market randomized controlled trial comparing VT ablation outcomes using remote magnetic navigation-guided substrate mapping and ablation versus manual approach in a low LVEF population.
  • The MAGNETIC VT trial will assess if VT ablation using the Niobe™ ES magnetic navigation system results in superior outcomes compared to a manual approach in subjects with ischemic scar VT and low ejection fraction.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: This is a randomized, single-blind, prospective, multicenter post-market study.
  • A total of 386 subjects (193 per group) will be enrolled and randomized 1:1 between treatment with the Niobe ES system and treatment via a manual procedure at up to 20 sites.
  • The secondary endpoints are acute success; freedom from any VT at 1 year in a large-scar subpopulation; procedure-related major adverse events; and mortality rate through 12-month follow-up.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • African Americans are under-represented in Alzheimer's disease (AD)-related biomarker studies, and it has been speculated that mistrust plays a major factor in the recruitment of African Americans for studies involving invasive procedures such as the lumbar puncture (LP).
  • We also surveyed participants' procedure-related perception (a standard medical procedure vs. a frightening invasive procedure) and reluctance, as well as the rate and type of post-procedure discomfort and complications.
  • Among those who completed study participation (including the LP), African Americans and Caucasians were similar in pre-LP perceptions and reluctance, as well as post-LP rates of discomfort or complication.
  • Perceiving LP as a frightening invasive procedure, not race, is associated with increased likelihood of post-LP discomfort or complication (RR 6.2, 95% confidence interval 1.1-37.0).
  • Our results indicate that LP is a well perceived procedure in a cohort of African American and Caucasian research participants, and is associated with few serious complications.
  • The pre-procedure perception that the LP is a frightening invasive procedure significantly increases the risk of self-reported discomfort of complications, and African Americans may be more likely to turn down study participation because of the LP.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Pediatric post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage in the setting of post-transplantation immunosuppression.
  • INTRODUCTION: Long-term immunosuppressants form an integral part of therapy for post-transplantation patients.
  • Our objective was to investigate whether there is an increased observed rate of post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage in a population of pediatric patients on long-term immunosuppressants after solid organ transplantation, compared to healthy controls.
  • Retrieved data included perioperative medications, occurrence of post-operative bleeding and associated treatment.
  • For comparison, we obtained a population of age-matched controls with no history of immunosuppression who underwent the same procedure.
  • RESULTS: A total of 34 patients meeting criteria were identified, of which 3 (8.82%) suffered a postoperative bleed.
  • Two of the post-transplantation patients who bled postoperatively required cauterization in the operating room.
  • CONCLUSION: We failed to demonstrate an increased risk of bleeding after undergoing adenotonsillectomy in our cohort of post-transplantation pediatric patients on chronic immunosuppression.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the predictive value of Type D personality on in-stent restenosis (ISR) rates at 1- and 2-year post percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
  • Follow-up coronary angiographic evaluation was routinely planned at 1- and 2-years after the procedure.
  • RESULTS: Follow-up coronary angiography was performed in 159 and 112 patients at 1- and 2-years post-PCI, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, Type D personality was an independent predictor of ISR at 1- and 2-years post-PCI; the association strengthened with time.
  • The negative affectivity component seems to drive the relationship between Type D and ISR over time.

96. Maia M, Costa Santos D: Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss: A Personal Integrated Approach. Aesthetic Plast Surg; 2017 May 31;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The growing number of patients with these sequelae triggered an increase in the search for body contouring procedures, which in turn produced an important development in the post-bariatric reconstructive surgery.
  • METHODS: The author describes the principles of a personal approach in post-bariatric reconstructive surgery.
  • The concept is based on an integrative approach, attending to multiple anatomic segments in the same procedure, associated with multiple refinements of the surgical technique.
  • A retrospective study was carried out, including all body contouring procedures in massive weight loss patients performed by the author between January 2009 and December 2013.
  • RESULTS: The sample is comprised of 74 patients, in a total of 120 surgeries, of which 70% were performed on the pelvic girdle and 30% on the scapular girdle.
  • DISCUSSION: The application of this integrated post-bariatric surgery concept enables multiple anatomic segment contouring in less surgical procedures, which in turn permits a more immediate final result, associated with lower hospitalization times and lower complication rates.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Partial fundoplications provide similar reflux control with fewer post-fundoplication symptoms compared with Nissen fundoplication for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).
  • The best choice of procedure for partial fundoplication remains unclear.
  • RESULTS: Ninety-four patients were randomized to laparoscopic Toupet or laparoscopic 180° anterior fundoplication (47 in each group).
  • Subjective outcome at 12 months demonstrated no significant differences in control of reflux or post-fundoplication symptoms.
  • CONCLUSION: Both types of partial fundoplication provided similar control of GORD at 12 months, with no difference in post-fundoplication symptoms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Results: Of 32 patients in the dTGA spectrum (age at operation 6 days), 18 (56%) underwent IE.
  • Patients who had cardiopulmonary bypass time (CPB) >173 min ( P  = 0.01), lowest temperature on CPB (T min) ≤ 30.4°C ( P  = 0.04) and aortic cross-clamp time >86 min ( P  = 0.04) were more likely to be left intubated at the end of the procedure.
  • There was no significant difference in patient's chronological age, gestational age, post-conceptual age, weight, coronary anatomy or prevalence of VSD between those who did and did not undergo IE.
  • The OR turnover time ( P  = 0.09) and reintubation rate ( P  = 1) at 24 h post-extubation did not differ between those who did and did not have IE.
  • Conclusions: In this cohort of infants, post repair for TGA, 56% were extubated immediately in the OR.

  • Potential predictor variables including age, gender, endoscopy indication, high sedation requirements during previous endoscopies, difficulty of the procedure, bowel preparation quality, interventions, findings as well as current use of benzodiazepines, opioids and alcohol were analyzed.
  • The outcome of study was the use of high dose of sedation agents for the procedure.
  • RESULTS: Analysis of 5282 patients (mean age 57 ± 12, 49% female) was performed.
  • Most common indication for the procedure was screening colonoscopy (57%).
  • Logistic regression models identified the following variables associated with high sedation: Younger age (OR = 0.95 95%CI: 0.94-0.95; <i>P</i> < 0.0001); abdominal pain (OR = 1.45, 95%CI: 1.08-1.96); <i>P</i> = 0.01) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (OR = 1.45, 95%CI: 1.04-2.03; <i>P</i> = 0.02) as indications for the procedure; difficult procedure as defined by gastroenterologist (OR = 1.73, 95%CI: 1.48-2.03; <i>P</i> < 0.0001); past history of abdominal surgery (OR = 1.33, 95%CI: 1.17-1.52; <i>P</i> <0.0001) and previous colonoscopy (OR = 1.39, 95%CI: 1.21-1.60; <i>P</i> = 0.0001) and alcohol use (OR = 1.26, 95%CI: 1.03-1.54; <i>P</i> = 0.02).
  • Age and gender adjusted analysis yielded inflammatory bowel disease as an indication (OR = 3.17, 95%CI: 1.58-6.37; <i>P</i> = 0.002); difficult procedure as defined by an endoscopist (OR = 5.13 95%CI: 2.97-8.85; <i>P</i> = 0.0001) and current use of opioids, benzodiazepines or antidepressants (OR = 2.88, 95%CI: 1.74-4.77; <i>P</i> = 0.001) having the highest predictive value of high sedation requirements.
  • Our prediction model using the following pre-procedural variables including age, gender, indication for the procedure, medication/substance use, previous surgeries, previous high sedation requirements for colonoscopy yielded an area under the curve of 0.76 for Fentanyl ≥ 100 mcg and Midazolam ≥ 3 mg.
  • Age and gender adjusted analysis yielded similar results.
  • These patients are more likely to need a longer recovery periods post-endoscopy, which could result in additional time and personnel requirements.

  • [Title] Usefulness of <sup>99m</sup>Tc-DTPA galactosyl human serum albumin liver scintigraphy for evaluating hepatic functional reserve after Kasai procedure.
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: We investigated whether <sup>99m</sup>Tc-DTPA galactosyl human serum albumin (GSA) liver scintigraphy could help evaluate post-Kasai procedure hepatic functional reserve in order to inform therapeutic strategies, including liver transplantation.
  • METHODS: GSA scintigraphy was performed post-Kasai procedure.
  • RESULTS: GSA scintigraphy was performed 106 times on 35 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hepatic functional reserve post-Kasai procedure can be evaluated using the GSA scintigraphy T<sub>0.85</sub> value.
