  • [Title] Minimally Invasive Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion (MIS-DLIF): Proof of Concept and Perioperative Results.
  • In this proof of concept study, we describe the surgical technique and report our experience and the perioperative outcomes of the first nine patients who underwent this procedure.
  • METHODS: Throughout the MIS-DLIF procedure, the surgeon is aided by biplanar fluoroscopic imaging to place an interbody graft or cage into the disc space through the interpleural space.
  • The procedure is usually completed with posterior pedicle screw fixation.
  • RESULTS: MIS-DLIF took 44/85 minutes, on average, for 1/2 levels, with 54/112 ml of blood loss, and 0.3/1.7 days of hospital stay.
  • At more than ninety days post surgery, the patients reported a statistically significant reduction of 4.5 points on a 10-point sliding pain scale.
  • CONCLUSIONS: MIS-DLIF with pedicle screw fixation is a safe and clinically effective procedure for fusions of the lumbar spine.
  • The procedure overcomes many of the limitations of the current minimally invasive approaches to the lumbar spine and is technically straightforward.

  • BACKGROUND: Two editions of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) diagnostic criteria for "Headache attributed to an intracranial endovascular procedure" have been published, in 2004 and 2013.
  • Moreover, so far no consensus exists regarding characteristics of headache after intracranial endovascular procedure.
  • RESULTS: In total, 73 patients were enrolled, and 58 patients ultimately completed the 6-month follow-up.
  • After the procedure, five of the 29 patients (17.2%) with pre-existing headache experienced marked worsening after the procedure, while seven of the 29 patients without prior headache developed new-onset headache post-procedurally.
  • The eligibility of these events to be considered headaches caused by neuroendovascular procedures according to the ICHD-3 beta diagnostic criteria for designation was far from ideal.

  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the value of pre-radiofrequency ablation (RFA) MR and post-RFA CT registration for the assessment of the therapeutic response of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 178 patients with single HCC who received RFA as an initial treatment and had available pre-RFA MR and post-RFA CT images were included in this retrospective study.
  • (1) visual comparison between pre-and post-RFA images;.
  • (2) with addition of nonrigid registration for pre- and post-RFA images.
  • RESULTS: The patients' reassignments after using the registered images were statistically significant for inexperienced reader (p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: Registration between pre-RFA MR and post-RFA CT images may allow better assessment of the therapeutic response of HCC after RFA, especially for inexperienced radiologists, helping in the risk stratification for LTP.

  • [Title] Resource utilization and procedure-related costs associated with transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
  • Procedural and post-procedural healthcare resource use and cost parameters were determined for the two groups.
  • RESULTS: The study showed that overall procedural time, including time required by medical personnel, was significantly shorter for TAVI using a BE compared with an SE valve.
  • Post-surgery, patients in the BE valve group had significantly shorter hospital stays than the SE valve group, including significantly fewer days spent in the intensive care unit (ICU).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Overall, changing from an SE to a BE valve for TAVI in patients with severe AS reduced both healthcare resource use and procedure-related costs, while maintaining patient safety.

  • [Title] Predictors of Changes in Health-Related Quality of Life 6 and 12 months After a Bariatric Procedure.
  • Prior to surgery and both 6 and 12 months after the procedure, patients completed questionnaires concerning their demographic data, height and weight, co-morbid conditions, HRQoL (Short Form Health Survey-12), depression severity (Beck Depression Inventory-II), and eating psychopathology (Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire).
  • Multiple linear regression analyses were conducted to detect predictors of physical and mental HRQoL 6 and 12 months post-operation.
  • RESULTS: The predictors included within the models explained 50 to 58% of the variance of post-operative physical and mental HRQoL, respectively.
  • Higher baseline depression severity was associated with reduced HRQoL after surgery, whereas changes from pre- to post-surgery in BDI-II scores positively predicted HRQoL values, especially mental HRQoL.

  • [Title] Hands-on 2.0: improving transfer of training via the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) Acquisition of Data for Outcomes and Procedure Transfer (ADOPT) program.
  • BACKGROUND: Practicing surgeons commonly learn new procedures and techniques by attending a "hands-on" course, though trainings are often ineffective at promoting subsequent procedure adoption in practice.
  • We describe implementation of a new program with the SAGES All Things Hernia Hands-On Course, Acquisition of Data for Outcomes and Procedure Transfer (ADOPT), which employs standardized, proven teaching techniques, and 1-year mentorship.
  • Attendee confidence and procedure adoption are compared between standard and ADOPT programs.
  • All participants were asked to provide pre- and post-course surveys inquiring about the number of targeted hernia procedures performed and related confidence level.
  • RESULTS: Four of 10 ADOPT participants (40%) and six of 22 standard training participants (27%) returned questionnaires.
  • Over the 3 months following the course, ADOPT participants performed more ventral hernia mesh insertion procedures than standard training participants (median 13 vs. 0.5, p = 0.010) and considerably more total combined procedures (median 26 vs. 7, p = 0.054).
  • DISCUSSION: These results suggest that the ADOPT program, with standardized and structured teaching, telementoring, and a longitudinal educational approach, is effective and leads to better transfer of learned skills and procedures to clinical practice.

  • [Title] A new method to predict the need for a Rashkind procedure in fetuses with dextro-transposition of the great arteries.
  • OBJECTIVE: Prenatal congenital heart disease classification system specify critical d-TGA with restriction of the foramen ovale (which requires Rashkind procedure) and planned d-TGA.
  • However, current prenatal diagnostic criteria for post-delivery foramen ovale (FO) restriction in d-TGA are inadequate, resulting in a high false negative rate.
  • We aim to find an echocardiographic features to predict the need for Rashkind procedure.
  • 1) those in which the Rashkind procedure was performed within the first 24 hours of life; and 2) those who did not undergo a Rashkind procedure before cardiac surgery.
  • 5) Rashkind procedure in second or more days after delivery (n = 4).
  • RESULTS: Finally 51 patients met the inclusion criteria: 29 with Rashkind procedure and 22 without.
  • However, the maximum speed of blood flow in the pulmonary veins was significantly higher in the group requiring a Rashkind procedure (47.62 ± 7.48cm/s vs. 32.21 ± 5.47cm/s; p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prenatal sonographic findings of an increased pulmonary venous blood flow and flattened FO valve were more frequently associated with the postnatal need for a Rashkind procedure within 24 hours of life.

  • [Title] Do repeated changes of abutments have any influence on the stability of peri-implant tissues? One-year post-loading results from a multicentre randomised controlled trial.
  • RESULTS: Forty patients were randomly allocated to each group according to a parallel group design.
  • PES scores assessed at 1 year post-loading were 11.4 (1.5) mm for the definitive abutment group and 11.0 (2.0) mm for the repeated abutment changes group (difference = 0.4; CI95%: -0.4, 1.2; P = 0.289).
  • Buccal recessions at 1 year post-loading amounted to 0.07 (0.35) mm for the definitive abutment group and 0.12 (0.65) mm for the repeated abutment changes group (actually it was a soft tissue gain; difference = 0.05 CI 95%: -0.19, 0.29; P = 0.659).
  • All patients declared to be very satisfied or satisfied with the function and aesthetics of the prostheses and would undergo the same procedure again.
  • The height of the keratinised mucosa at 1 year post-loading was 2.8 (1.5) mm for the definitive abutment group and 2.8 (1.7) mm for the repeated abutment changes group (difference = -0.0; CI 95%: -0.8, 0.7); P = 0.966.
  • Up to 1 year after initial loading, there were no statistically significant differences between the two procedures, with the exception of 0.16 mm more marginal bone loss at implants subjected to three abutment removals.
  • CONCLUSIONS: One-year post-loading data showed that repeated abutment changes significantly increased bone loss of 0.16, but this difference cannot be considered clinically relevant, therefore clinicians can use the procedure they find more convenient for their specific patient.
  • 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 with exception of rejecting the proposal of changing the protocol, after the trial was started, allowing the use of indexed abutments.

  • [Title] Axillary Management of Stage II/III Breast Cancer in Patients Treated with Neoadjuvant Systemic Therapy: Results of CALGB 40601 (HER2-Positive) and CALGB 40603 (Triple-Negative).
  • STUDY DESIGN: Axillary evaluation pre- and post-NST was per the treating surgeon and could include sentinel node biopsy.
  • Post-NST, node-positive patients were recommended to undergo axillary lymph node dissection (ALND).
  • We report pre-NST histopathologic nodal evaluation and post-NST axillary surgical procedures with correlation to clinical and pathologic nodal status.
  • RESULTS: Seven hundred and forty-two patients were treated, 704 had complete nodal data pre-NST and post-NST.
  • Pre-NST, 422 (60%) of 704 patients underwent at least 1 procedure for axillary node evaluation (total of 468 procedures): fine needle aspiration (n = 234; 74% positive), core needle biopsy (n = 138; 72% positive), and sentinel node biopsy (n = 96; 33% positive).
  • Post-NST, 304 of 704 patients (43%) underwent sentinel node biopsy; 44 were positive and 259 were negative (29 and 36 patients, respectively, had subsequent ALND).
  • Three hundred and ninety-one (56%) patients went directly to post-NST ALND and 9 (1%) pre-NST node-positive patients had no post-NST axillary procedure.
  • Post-NST, 170 (24%) of the 704 patients had residual axillary disease.
  • Agreement between post-NST clinical and radiologic staging and post-NST histologic staging was strongest for node-negative (81%) and weaker for node-positive (N1 31%, N2 29%), with more than half of the clinically node-positive patients found to be pathologic negative (p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest there is no widely accepted standard for axillary nodal evaluation pre-NST.
  • Post-NST staging was highly concordant in patients with N0 disease, but poorly so in node-positive disease.
  • Accurate methods are needed to identify post-NST patients without residual axillary disease to potentially spare ALND.

  • Three hundred and ten patients treated for CIN2+ with a loop electrosurgical excision procedure underwent HPV DNA testing, cytology and colposcopy at 6 months post treatment.
  • RESULTS: None of the 172 (55%) women who were HPV negative at 6 months were found to have residual/recurrent CIN2+ during the surveillance period.

  • [Title] Combination of two-hour post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography amylase levels and cannulation times is useful for predicting post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis.
  • AIM: To estimate the efficacy of 2 h post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) serum amylase levels and other factors for predicting post-ERCP pancreatitis.
  • Serum amylase levels were measured 2 h post-procedure, and patient- and procedure-related pancreatitis (PEP) risk factors were analyzed using a logistic model.
  • RESULTS: A total of 1520 cases (average age 72 ± 12 years, 60% male) were initially enrolled in this study, and 1403 cases (725 patients) were ultimately analyzed after the exclusion of 117 cases.
  • CONCLUSION: These findings indicate that the combination of 2 h post-ERCP serum amylase levels and cannulation times represents a valuable marker for identifying patients at high risk for PEP.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Palliative procedures have important roles in this setting.
  • RESULTS: Out of 100 patients, indications for stenting were locally advanced disease not amenable to surgery (52%), metastatic disease (35%), CVA (1%), cardiac and respiratory problem (8%), un-willing for surgery in 5% of patients.
  • Post procedure stay was 3.61±1.0 days.
  • One patient had procedure related major complication in the form of post procedural bleed (after 16 days of stenting) leading to death of that patient.
  • Minor complications were present in 52 patients treated conservatively not affecting the efficacy of procedure.
  • CONCLUSION: Esophageal stenting is relatively safe procedure with short stay of the patient in the hospital.
  • Although, it helps in alleviating patients' morbidity very effectively and reliably, there are many technical glitches, which needs to be kept into account and patient should be properly counseled before the procedure to prevent and manage post procedure complications and medico legal aspects.

  • [Title] Cryolipolysis for Nonsurgical Reduction of Fat in the Lateral Chest Wall Post-Mastectomy.
  • While the fat may be associated with pain and cause undesirable bulges in clothing and skin irritation, most post-mastectomy patients are not interested in additional surgery.
  • Objectives: Cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical procedure for fat reduction.
  • The procedure is typically performed for aesthetic improvement in the abdomen, thighs, and flanks, but cryolipolysis was explored in this study for reconstructive purposes.
  • Efficacy was evaluated for nonsurgical reduction of lateral chest wall thickness post-mastectomy.
  • Methods: A contoured cup vacuum applicator was used to treat 31 post-mastectomy patients under the arms.
  • All subjects had undergone mastectomy but had never received cryolipolysis or any surgical procedures to reduce lateral chest wall fat.
  • Results: Three blinded, independent physicians correctly identified 84% of the baseline photographs, demonstrating treatment efficacy.
  • Patient questionnaires reveal quality of life improvements post-treatment.
  • While 61% of subjects reported pain in the lateral wall prior to the study, when queried post-treatment, only 13% reported pain; the remaining 87% reported no lateral wall pain.
  • Conclusions: Results from this study indicate that cryolipolysis nonsurgically reduces unwanted fat and may reduce discomfort from residual lateral chest wall fat in post-mastectomy patients.

  • [Title] Observation time after outpatient non-arterial interventional procedures: standards, safety, and outcomes.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of standardized reduced post-procedure observation time on subsequent healthcare encounters such as emergency department (ED) visits, hospital admissions, and clinic visits.
  • METHODS: 800 consecutive patients undergoing outpatient non-arterial interventional radiologic procedures within the vascular interventional department between 1 June 2013 and 21 July 2014 were included in this IRB-approved, HIPAA-compliant single center observational retrospective study.
  • An attending interventional radiologist and radiology resident reviewed, in consensus, medical records for relevance of the encounter to the index procedure.
  • Procedure-related encounters were analyzed to determine relationship to length of observation time, using Matlab for statistical analysis.
  • RESULTS: 397 and 403 patients were in the pre- and post-standardization groups, respectively.
  • There was no significant change in either overall or procedure-related ED visits (16.6% [66/397] and 1.0% [4/397] pre-standardization vs. 20.1% [81/403] and 2.2% [9/403] post-standardization, p = 0.24 and 0.26), hospital admissions (27.7% [110/397] and 4.0% [16/397] prestandardization vs. 28.3% [114/403] and 2.7% [11/403] post-standardization, p = 0.88 and 0.33), or clinic visits (41.3% [164/397] and 1.0% [4/397] pre-standardization vs. 39.5% [159/403] and 2.2% [9/403] post-standardization, p = 0.61 and 0.26).
  • CONCLUSION: Proposed standardized shortened observation times after outpatient interventional radiologic procedures are safe, without change in either total or procedure-related ED visits, hospital admissions, or clinic visits.

  • [Title] Predictors of High Post-Procedural Gradients after Catheter-Based Aortic Valve Implantation Using Direct Flow Medical Bioprostheses.
  • The study aim was to investigate procedural and post-implant valve data in patients receiving differently sized DFM bioprostheses.
  • RESULTS: Implantation of a 29 mm bioprosthesis was associated with longer procedure (p <0.05) and radiation (p <0.05) times, and a higher dose-area product (p <0.01) compared to the 25 mm valve.
  • A high mean post-interventional aortic gradient indicating a suboptimal result was found in 44% patients receiving a 29 mm bioprosthesis, whereas none of the patients with a 25 or 27 mm valve had a high gradient (p <0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: DFM bioprosthesis size significantly influences the TAVI procedure and post-implant valve function.
  • Valve calcification and use of the 29 mm DFM bioprosthesis per se possibly predict a more complicated procedure.

  • BACKGROUND: Primary aim of our study was to assess the impact of timing of sentinel node procedure, pre- versus post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy, on final pathologic node-negative rate (pN0) in patients with clinically node-negative (cN0) breast cancer.
  • Secondary endpoint was the usability of the sentinel node procedure in patients with clinically node-positive disease that converted to cN0 after neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: In total 439 patients were included, of whom 230 (52%) had pre-treatment cN0.
  • In this group, pN0 status was seen in 58% (N = 23) of patients with a sentinel node biopsy post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy compared to 51% (N = 83) pre-neoadjuvant chemotherapy, including the axillary lymph node dissection whenever performed.
  • In multivariable analysis, timing of sentinel node procedure (pre- versus post- neoadjuvant chemotherapy) was, however, not significantly associated with final pN0/pN0(i+) status, with an odds ratio of 1.18 (95% CI 0.64 - 2.18) after correction for age, clinical tumor status, histology, grade, hormone- and HER2 receptor.
  • CONCLUSION: In breast cancer patients with cN0 disease, sentinel node procedure performed post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy led to nodal down staging, although not statistically significant after multivariate correction for patient and tumor characteristics.

  • [Title] Severe right ventricular dysfunction is an independent predictor of pre- and post-transplant mortality among candidates for heart transplantation.
  • AIMS: To study waiting-list and post-transplant mortality, and their risk factors among patients registered for heart transplantation without initial high emergency procedure.
  • METHODS: All patients registered on the heart transplantation waiting list (2004-2015) without initial high emergency procedure were included.
  • Waiting list and 1-year post-transplant survival were analysed with a Kaplan-Meier model.
  • RESULTS: Of 221 patients enrolled, 168 (76.0%) were men.
  • The post-transplant survival rate was 73.1±4.4% at 1 year.
  • Patients at highest risk of waiting-list mortality have to be promoted, but without compromising post-transplant outcomes.

  • [Title] Percutaneous Closure of Post-Infarction Ventricular Septal Defects-An Over Decade-long Experience.
  • OBJECTIVES: To report an over decade-long experience with percutaneous post-infarction ventricular septal defect (PIVSD) closure.
  • Data concerning patients and procedures was acquired.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-one percutaneous PIVSD closures were performed on 20 patients (9 females, mean age: 70 years).
  • Mean interval between the diagnosis and the procedure was 182.6 ± 500 days (range: 7-2228).
  • In 7 cases (33%) the procedure was performed in the acute phase.
  • Four patients died within 48 hours after the procedure.
  • Univariate analysis revealed impact of technical success of the procedure (HR 0.13, CI 0.03-0.68 P = 0.016) and white blood cell count (HR 1.36 per unit increase, CI 1.1-1.69, P = 0.005) on 30-day mortality.
  • Procedure in the non-acute phase carries lower mortality, but at the same time introduces a selection bias.

  • [Title] Post-embolization syndrome: Outcomes regarding the type of embolization.
  • : e14582 Background: Post-embolization syndrome (PES) is characterized by fever, abdominal pain and leukocytosis after embolization of hepatic tumors and is likely caused by an inflammatory response to necrotic tissue.
  • We examined the outcomes of a large group of patients that underwent embolization with particular emphasis on the type of procedure performed.
  • METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 247 cases that underwent embolization procedures of hepatic tumors at our institution from January 2002 to January 2010.
  • RESULTS: Out of 247 patients, 173 were men (70%) and 74 were women (30%).
  • Subsequently we examined 190 patients with HCC as a separate group in which chemoembolization with doxorubicin drug eluting beads (DEB) was the most frequent type of procedure in 97 out of 190 HCC patients (51%), followed by bland microspheres in 73 patients (38%), polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles in 27 patients and 3 cases of epirubicin DEB embolization.
  • Cox regression indicates that PES was not a statistically significant predictor of either PFS or OS, although the results showed a trend towards worse PFS in PES patients (p = 0.061).
  • Despite the fact that most PES cases occurred after chemoembolization, such procedure still fairs favorably when compared to other types of embolization.

  • [Title] Value of Raw Rhubarb Solution in the Precaution of Post-endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography Pancreatitis in Patients with High-Risk Factors: A Predictive Random Compared Research in One Center.
  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Post-ERCP pancreatitis and hyperamylasemia are common complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), especially in high-risk patients.
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate whether a raw rhubarb solution can reduce the incidence of PEP and post-ERCP hyperamylasemia.
  • RESULTS: There were no differences in patient demographics, medical history, ERCP procedure, and patient- and procedure-related high-risk factors between the two groups.
  • The rate of post-ERCP hyperamylasemia was 5.2% (13/250) and 16.8% (42/250) in the RG group and CG group, respectively.

  • [Title] Oral glucose efficacy on neonate's pain responses at the NICU: A quasi experimental trial of two clinical procedures.
  • The hypotheses were formulated from previous conclusions reached by other researchers highlighting the efficacy of sucrose solutions on neonates' pain responses during minor painful procedures.
  • Data from a total of 90 neonates included 60 neonates who underwent a venepuncture and 30 neonates who underwent a nasopharyngeal suctioning procedure for clinical purposes.
  • The neonate's pain response for each procedure was scored using the Neonatal Pain Assessment Scale (NPAS) on two separate occasions over three time periods.
  • The pre-procedural score (T<sub>0</sub>) when the neonate received no sucrose, the inter-procedural score (T<sub>1</sub>) when the neonate was given 2ml of 10% glucose solution two minutes before the procedure (intervention group) or where oral glucose was withheld (control group) and the post-procedural score (T<sub>2</sub>) being at the end of the procedure.
  • RESULTS: The results showed the mean NPAS scores in response to venepuncture or nasopharyngeal suctioning were significantly lower in the intervention group than the control group.
  • CONCLUSION: This showed that oral glucose (10%) had a positive effect on the pain response during venepuncture and nasopharyngeal suctioning procedures.

  • [Title] Cerebral micro-embolization during pulmonary vein isolation: relation to post-ablation silent cerebral ischemia.
  • In this investigation the possible relationship between MESs detected intraoperatively by TCD and new SCI on DW MRI post-ablation is reported.
  • METHODS: 27 consecutive atrial fibrillation patients (6 female, age median: 64 interquartile range: 13.23) undergoing PVI with the pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC), pre- and post-ablation DW MRI and intraoperative MES detection by TCD were included in the study.
  • Procedures were performed on a therapeutic international normalized ratio (2-3) and with a target activated clotting time ≥ 350 s in all patients.
  • DW MRI scans performed pre- and post-ablation revealed new SCI in 6 out of 27 (22%) patients.
  • RESULTS: The median (interquartile range) MES count recorded during the whole procedure was 1642 (912) in patients with and 1019 (529) in those without SCI (p = 0.129).
  • The number of MESs recorded during PV angiography was significantly higher in patients as compared to those without a new lesion on the post-ablation DW MRI: 257 (249) vs. 110 (71), respectively (p = 0.0009).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Micro-embolus generation detected by TCD during PV angiography significantly correlates with new SCI on DW MRI post-ablation.

  • [Title] [Factors related with post-surgical complications in elderly patients with glioblastoma multiforme].
  • Life expectancy has increased in the population in recent times and an analysis of the post-surgical complications affecting elderly patients is of great importance for a correct surgical indication.
  • AIMS: To analyse the factors related with post-surgical complications in elderly patients.
  • The variables taken into consideration in the study were: personal medical history, age, functional status, pre-anaesthetic status, tumour characteristics, type of surgery and post-surgical complications.
  • RESULTS: Age was observed to have an influence on local (p = 0.006) and systemic surgical complications (p = 0.034), and on the Clavien-Dindo scale (p = 0.001).
  • Likewise, more local complications are found in the case of excisional procedures than in biopsies (p = 0.027).
  • Age, cardiovascular risk, functional status and the type of surgical procedure have significantly increased the occurrence of post-surgical complications.

  • [Title] Gastric conduit obstruction due to gastroduodenal compression: a new complication post-Ivor-Lewis oesophagectomy.
  • Delayed gastric emptying is a relatively common complication following this procedure.
  • The vast majority of cases are related to post-operative pyloric dysfunction and are amenable to conventional management strategies.
  • RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Surgical repair of the hiatus hernia restored the post-oesophagectomy anatomy and resolved this patient's symptoms where conventional management of post-oesophagectomy gastric outlet obstruction had failed on multiple occasions.
  • Most cases of delayed gastric emptying post-oesophagectomy occur as a result of pyloric dysfunction and can be managed using a combination of prokinetics, surgical intervention or more commonly, endoscopic dilatation.

  • [Title] Bleeding After Endoscopic Procedures in Patients With Chronic Hematologic Thrombocytopenia.
  • BACKGROUND: Procedure-induced bleeding is a major complication after endoscopic intervention.
  • METHODS: We investigated endoscopy-related bleeding in 175 procedures performed on 108 patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura or aplastic anemia.
  • The outcomes were compared with those of 350 procedures on age-, sex-, and procedure-matched control subjects.
  • Endoscopic interventions included low-risk procedures such as endoscopic biopsy and high-risk procedures including polypectomy, endoscopic resection, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram with sphincterotomy.
  • RESULTS: Bleeding occurred in 17 (9.7%) procedures among the patients with thrombocytopenia.
  • This rate was significantly higher than that in procedures on controls (3.1%, P = 0.003).
  • About 60% of all bleeding events were observed within 24 h after the endoscopic procedure.
  • Bleeding occurred after 20% of all high-risk procedures.
  • Multivariate analysis revealed that high-risk procedures and low platelet count (less than 50 × 10<sup>3</sup>/μl) were significantly related to procedure-related bleeding.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic procedure-related bleeding develops frequently in patients with chronic hematologic thrombocytopenia.
  • Post-procedural bleeding should be observed carefully in these patients, especially when the platelet count is less than 50 × 10<sup>3</sup>/μl or high-risk endoscopic procedures are planned.

  • [Title] The follow-up of post-mastectomy patients: Should the ipsilateral side be assessed with both mammogram and ultrasound?
  • AIM: This study aimed to determine findings of axillary view mammogram (MMG) and ultrasound (USG) of the ipsilateral side in post-mastectomy patients and to document difficulty level in performing the axillary view and patients' pain level during the procedure.
  • METHODS: Post-mastectomy patients who had MMG and USG on follow-up during an 18-months period were included.
  • The MMG and USG findings of 183 patients were reviewed and histology results were recorded when available.
  • RESULTS: On MMG, 172 cases were normal, eight cases were benign (Category 2) and three cases indeterminate (Category 3).
  • CONCLUSION: Follow-up imaging of post-mastectomy patients should include (i) USG of the mastectomy site, both axillary regions, and the contralateral breast, and (ii) MMG of the contralateral side.

  • [Title] High coronary calcium score and post-procedural CK-MB are noninvasive predictors of coronary stent restenosis.
  • PURPOSE: High coronary calcium score (CCS) and post-procedural cardiac enzyme may be related with poor outcomes in patients with coronary stent implantation.
  • METHODS: A total of 1,072 patients (63.2% male, mean age: 61.7±10.3 years) who underwent coronary multi-detect computed tomography at index procedure and follow-up coronary angiography (CAG) after drug-eluting stent (DES) were divided into two groups: those with and without target lesion revascularization (TLR; >50% reduction in luminal stent diameter or angina symptoms on follow-up CAG).
  • RESULTS: There were no significant differences between the two groups with regard to risk factors.
  • After adjustment of significant factors for TLR, only CCS and post-procedural creatine kinase MB form (CK-MB) elevation were significant predictors of coronary artery TLR.
  • CONCLUSION: High CCS with post-procedural CK-MB might be the useful predictors for TLR after DES implantation.

  • [Title] Neuraxial opioids for post-cesarean delivery analgesia: can hydromorphone replace morphine? A retrospective study.
  • BACKGROUND: Cesarean delivery is the most common surgical procedure performed in the USA.
  • We evaluated the postoperative analgesic properties of neuraxial hydromorphone compared to neuraxial morphine for post-cesarean delivery analgesia.
  • RESULTS: Median time to first opioid after intrathecal morphine was 17.0h versus 14.6h after intrathecal hydromorphone (P<0.0001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hydromorphone is a reasonable alternative to morphine for post-cesarean delivery analgesia.
  • With the dosing used in our study, analgesia from morphine lasted longer than hydromorphone via intrathecal and epidural routes; however, neuraxial hydromorphone remains a reasonable option for long-acting analgesia post cesarean delivery.

  • [Title] Reduced cortical volume and thickness and their relationship to medical and operative features in post-Fontan children and adolescents.
  • BACKGROUND: We compared brain cortical and subcortical gray matter volumes and cortical thickness between post-Fontan patients and healthy controls, and examined brain anatomical associations with operative and medical history characteristics.
  • METHODS: Post-Fontan (n = 128 volumes; n = 115 thickness) and control subjects (n = 48 volumes; n = 45 thickness) underwent brain MRI at ages 10-19 years.
  • RESULTS: Widespread, significant reduction in brain volumes and thicknesses existed in the Fontan group compared to controls, spanning all brain lobes and subcortical gray matter.
  • Fontan subjects treated with versus without the Norwood procedure had smaller volumes in several terminal clusters, but did not differ in cortical thickness.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The post-Fontan adolescent brain differs from the normal control brain.

  • [Title] Type of Resection (Whipple vs. Distal) Does Not Affect the National Failure to Provide Post-resection Adjuvant Chemotherapy in Localized Pancreatic Cancer.
  • RESULTS: Overall, 13,501 patients were included (DPP, n = 1933; PD, n = 11,568).
  • The type of procedure was not independently associated with adjuvant chemotherapy (hazard ratio 0.96, 95% confidence interval 0.90-1.02; p = 0.150), and patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy had improved unadjusted and adjusted OS compared with surgery alone.
  • CONCLUSION: Receipt of adjuvant chemotherapy did not vary by type of resection but improved survival independent of procedure performed.
  • Factors other than type of resection appear to be driving the nationwide rates of post-resection adjuvant chemotherapy in localized PDAC.

  • [Title] The effect of D-cycloserine on social anxiety treatment using a behavioral outcome measure and a post-session administration strategy.
  • This procedure has met with mixed results andmany questions remain.
  • Study 2 (n = 16), utilizing a similar design, introduced an algorithm based post-session administration strategy following sessions where anxiety reductions were evident.
  • RESULTS: Findings of Study 1 yielded an interaction effect in favor of DCS for self-reported distress ratings (<i>p</i>=.02) and on a behavioral measure of anxiety (<i>p</i>=.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although limitations of small sample size constrain generalization and limit power, results illustrate some beneficial effects of DCS within the context of exposure-based intervention for social anxiety, yet are discussed in the context of statistical vs. clinical significance and the DCS literature as a whole.
  • Present findings highlight the potential usefulness of a post-session administration strategy and the behavioral measure for future efforts with an eye towards preventing bias through more nuanced and powered studies.

  • [Title] The Utility of Diagnostic Laparoscopy in Post-Bariatric Surgery Patients with Chronic Abdominal Pain of Unknown Etiology.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the yield of laparoscopy as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool in post-bariatric surgery patients with chronic abdominal pain who had negative imaging and endoscopic studies.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on post-bariatric surgery patients who underwent laparoscopy for diagnosis and treatment of chronic abdominal pain at a single academic center.
  • RESULTS: Total of 35 post-bariatric surgery patients met the inclusion criteria, and all had history of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
  • Two patients developed post-operative complications including a pelvic abscess and an abdominal wall abscess.
  • CONCLUSION: Diagnostic laparoscopy, which is a safe procedure, can detect pathological findings in more than half of post-bariatric surgery patients with chronic abdominal pain of unknown etiology.

  • [Title] Long-term effects of pulsed high-intensity laser therapy in the treatment of post-burn pruritus: a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study.
  • We assessed the long-term effects of pulsed high-intensity laser therapy (HILT) in post-burn pruritus treatment.
  • Repeated-measures ANOVA was used to compare the baseline and post-treatment measurements and after 12 weeks of follow-up.
  • The QoL results showed a significant improvement in the ALG compared with the PLG, which continued after 12 weeks.
  • VAS results significantly decrease, hand grip strength significantly improved, and cetirizine intake significantly decreased post-treatment in the ALG relative to the PLG.
  • HILT combined with cetirizine seems more effective in patients with post-burn pruritus than a placebo laser procedure with cetirizine.

  • [Title] Patient informational needs about breast reconstruction post-mastectomy.
  • : 88 Background: For many women, receiving a breast cancer diagnosis is further complicated by decisions they will face about breast reconstruction post-mastectomy.
  • METHODS: In 2011, 439 participants attending Frankly Speaking about Cancer: Spotlight on Breast Reconstruction, a national educational workshop, completed a post-workshop survey (56.4% response rate).
  • RESULTS: Respondents were Caucasian (74.8%), black (11.4%), and Hispanic (10.1%), and the mean age was 48.9.
  • Of those eligible for breast reconstruction, 18.2% reported they had decided against reconstruction, 40.7% were considering their options, and 41.1% planned to undergo or had undergone reconstructive procedures.
  • Women reported they would have liked to have had more information prior to reconstruction about a variety of topics, including more information about the procedure (43.6%), how they would look (31.1%) and feel (29.7%) after reconstruction, and information about their future breast health (31.8%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Findings suggest women facing breast reconstruction often are not equipped with comprehensive information about procedures, options, outcomes, and recovery.

  • [Title] Effect of Intravenous Acetaminophen on Post-Anesthesia Care Unit Length of Stay, Opioid Consumption, Pain, and Analgesic Drug Costs After Ambulatory Surgery.
  • OBJECTIVES: The primary objective was to assess whether the use of intravenous acetaminophen (APAP) in the ambulatory surgery setting is associated with a decreased length of stay in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU).
  • METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study conducted in adult patients (18 years of age or older) who received an eye, ear, nose, or throat (EENT) procedure at an outpatient surgery center between January 2014 and January 2015.
  • RESULTS: The cohort included 174 patients who received an EENT procedure (87 patients in the APAP group and 87 patients in the non-APAP group).
  • However, it may decrease postoperative pain following EENT procedures.

  • [Title] Spatiotemporal exposome dynamics of soil lead and children's blood lead pre- and ten years post-Hurricane Katrina: Lead and other metals on public and private properties in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A.
  • OBJECTIVES: To compare and evaluate associations of pre- and ten years post-Katrina SPb and children's BPb on public and private residential census tracts in the core and outer areas of New Orleans, and to examine correlations between SPb and nine other soil metals.
  • METHODS: The Louisiana Healthy Housing and Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program BPb (µg/dL) data from pre- (2000-2005) and post-Katrina (2010-2015) for ≤6-year-old children.
  • Data from public and adjacent private residential census tracts within core and outer areas are stratified from a database that includes 916 and 922 SPb and 13,379 and 4830 BPb results, respectively, from pre- and post-Katrina New Orleans.
  • Statistical analyses utilize Multi-Response Permutation Procedure and Spearman's Rho Correlation.
  • RESULTS: Pre- to Post-Katrina median SPb decreases in public and private core census tracts were from 285 to 55mg/kg and 710-291mg/kg, respectively.
  • Children's BPb percent ≥5µg/dL on public and private core areas pre-Katrina was 63.2% and 67.5%, and declined post-Katrina to 7.6% and 20.2%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Post-Katrina re-building of public housing plus landscaping amends the exposome and reduces children's BPb.

  • [Title] Effect of Post-procedural Full Does Infusion of Bivalirudin on Acute Stent Thrombosis in Patients with ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction Undergoing Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Outcomes in a large real-world population.
  • BACKGROUND: Subgroup data as well as meta analysis from randomized clinical trials have showed potency of post-procedural full dose infusion (1.75mg/kg/h) of bivalirudin on attenuating acute stent thrombosis(ST) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI).
  • The primary outcome was acute ST defined as ARC definite/probable within 24 hours after the index procedure, and the secondary endpoints included total ST, major adverse cardiac or cerebral events (MACCE, defined as death, re-infarction, stroke and target vessel revascularization) and all bleeding at 30 days.
  • RESULTS: Among 2047 STEMI patients, 1123 (54.9%) were treated with post-procedrual bivalirudin full dose infusion (median 120 min)while the other 924 (45.1%) received low does (0.25mg/kg/h) or null post-procedural infusion.
  • A total of 3 acute ST (0.3%) occurred in STEMI patients with none or low does prolonged infusion of bivairudin, but none was observed in those treated with post-PCI full does infusion(0.3% vs 0.0%, P=0.092).
  • CONCLUSION: Post-PCI full-does bivalirudin infusion is safe and has a trend to protect against acute ST in STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI in real world settings.

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • : e290 Background: There are a myriad of experiences reported from various cancer survivors, but few individuals have been involved with cancer drug development, speaking publicly to prostate cancer groups, working privately with prostate cancer survivors and studying the psychosocial aspects of post treatment patients.
  • METHODS: N/A Results: The postsurgical and post treatment issues , particularly ED are either not discussed by the patient due to embarrassment or lack of knowledgeable of the type of questions to ask, or not addressed directly by the HCP.
  • There are few "neutral" voices talking to the patient on which procedure or treatment would suit him best.
  • Potential options exist but for many men they are met with mixed results.

  • [Title] Access to post-hospitalization acute care facilities is associated with payer status for open abdominal aortic repair and open lower extremity revascularization in the Vascular Quality Initiative.
  • OBJECTIVE: Uninsured patients may not have access to post-acute care facilities that play an important role in clinical recovery and functional outcomes after vascular surgery.
  • RESULTS: The study cohort comprised 18,478 procedures (OAR=2,817; IB=11,572; SB=4,089) after we excluded procedures with missing data and in-hospital deaths.
  • On mixed effects analysis, the adjusted odds of discharge home for self-pay as compared to Medicare remained high (OR=3.09; 95% CI 2.23-4.26), after adjustment for age, gender, race/ethnicity, preoperative ambulatory status, number of comorbidities, case urgency, total operative time, presence of a postoperative complication, procedure type, and length of stay.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Access to post-acute care facilities is associated with insurance status.

  • [Title] Ultrasound-guided alcohol neurolysis and radiofrequency ablation of painful stump neuroma: effective treatments for post-amputation pain.
  • BACKGROUND: Post-amputation pain (PAP) is highly prevalent after limb amputation, and stump neuromas play a key role in the generation of the pain.
  • Presently, PAP refractory to medical management is frequently treated with minimally invasive procedures guided by ultrasound, such as alcohol neurolysis and radiofrequency ablation (RFA).
  • METHODS: Thirteen subjects were treated with ultrasound-guided procedures.
  • RESULTS: All patients were treated with neurolysis using alcohol solutions guided by ultrasound.
  • CONCLUSION: The use of ultrasound guidance for alcohol injection and RFA of painful stump neuromas is a simple, radiation-free, safe, and effective procedure that provides sustained pain relief in PAP patients.

  • [Title] Evaluation of the Population Pharmacokinetic Properties of Lidocaine and its Metabolites After Long-Term Multiple Applications of a Lidocaine Plaster in Post-Herpetic Neuralgia Patients.
  • METHODS: The population pharmacokinetic properties of lidocaine and its metabolites were evaluated after multiple applications of lidocaine 5% medicated plasters based on data collected for up to 14.5 months from two phase III clinical trials (up to 2.5 months in the first trial, and up to 12 months in a follow-up trial) in post-herpetic neuralgia patients.
  • A stepwise forward inclusion and backward elimination procedure were used for covariate model building.
  • RESULTS: The model provides reliable estimates of the pharmacokinetic behavior of lidocaine after medicated plaster application.
  • As no accumulation was predicted by the model, long-term exposure to lidocaine and its metabolites is not expected to lead to any safety concerns in post-herpetic neuralgia patients.

  • The aim of this study is to evaluate and refine ORA measurements for IOP changes post- M2 90 Moria microkeratome Lasik procedure for Egyptian myopic and astigmatic patients trying to aid in glaucoma diagnosis and management.
  • METHODS: Thirty-five eyes of nineteen Egyptian patients with myopia or myopic astigmatism who had undergone Lasik procedure using M2 90 Moria microkeratome were included in this consecutive case series study.
  • RESULTS: In our study, involving M2 90 Moria microkeratome Lasik procedure, a highly significant post-Lasik reduction in IOPg (t-test = 8.62 (p<0.01), and a statistically significant reduction in IOPcc (t-test = 3.37 (p<0.05) by ocular response analyzer.
  • The average post-Lasik reduction in IOP in mmHg was 4.84±2.82 for IOPg and 2.23±3.51for IOPcc.
  • A statistically significant correlation (p<0.05) existed between post-Lasik reduction of IOPg and ablation depth as well as preoperative spherical equivalent.
  • A non-significant correlation existed between post-Lasik reduction of IOPcc and both of ablation depth and preoperative spherical equivalent.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Following Lasik procedure using M2 90 Moria microkeratome, the IOPcc values by ORA were closer to the preoperative values than the IOPg values and the reduction of IOPcc values was not affected by ablation depth (i.e. preoperative spherical equivalent).
  • Therefore, it is advisable to use the IOPcc values by ORA when evaluating post-Lasik patients for glaucoma diagnosis and management, but with the addition of the average value for post-Lasik reduction which in the study was 2.23±3.51mmHg.

  • : 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.
  • PURPOSE: To compare IMRT QA pass rates before and after an in-house MLC leaf calibration procedure.
  • IMRT QA results were collected pre- and postcalibration and analyzed using gamma analysis with 3%/3mm DTA criteria.
  • AAPM TG-119 test plans were also compared pre- and post-calibration, at both 2%/2mm DTA and 3%/3mm DTA.
  • RESULTS: A weighted average was performed on the results for all four linear accelerators.
  • The pre-calibration IMRT QA pass rate was 98.3 ± 0.1%, compared with the post-calibration pass rate of 98.5 ± 0.1%.
  • The TG-119 test plan results showed more of an improvement, particularly at the 2%/2mm criteria.
  • The averaged results were 89.1% pre and 96.1% post for the C-shape plan, 94.8% pre and 97.1% post for the multi-target plan, 98.6% pre and 99.7% post for the prostate plan, 94.7% pre and 94.8% post for the head/neck plan.
  • CONCLUSION: The patient QA results did not show statistically significant improvement at the 3%/3mm DTA criteria after the MLC calibration procedure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Out of 101 patients from Absorb cohort B trial, 28 patients(29 lesions) with serial Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT) examination at 4 different time points(Cohort B1: post-procedure,6 months, 2, and 5 years[n=13]; Cohort B2:post-procedure,1, 3, and 5 years[n=16]) were evaluated.
  • Post-procedure, eccentric lesion was observed in 72.4% and became concentric in 93.1% at 5 years (post EIL 0.67±0.05 vs. 5- year EIL 0.80±0.10, p=0.03) with a modest reduction of the lumen area from baseline to 5 years by 0.75±0.32 mm2.
  • Asymmetric lumen morphology was observed in 93.1%(n=27) post implantation and persisted until 5-year follow-up.
  • On serial OCT analyses, there was a substantial increase in the scaffold EI during the first two years (post 0.70±0.06, 6-month 0.76±0.08, 2-year 0.85±0.07), then remained stable whereas the lumen circularity further improved.

  • Therapists were credentialed for this QA procedure which was easily incorporated into the existing daily warmup process.
  • This procedure adds depth to TG-142 requirements without additional morning time costs.
  • RESULTS: Pre-shift and post-shift table corrections were recorded daily.
  • Accuracy of the automatic table movement was confirmed by the post-shift table corrections.
  • The average post-shift table corrections for the translational axes were ≤ 0.15mm and for the rotational axes were ≤ 0.42°.
  • Using our clinic's existing table corrections tolerance of <1mm and <0.5°, these results were deemed acceptable.
  • CONCLUSION: Therapists successfully and rapidly adopted daily QA procedures using the PerfectPitch table; automated rotational robotic table motions were confirmed through image fusions.
  • This procedure enhances existing TG-142 recommendations.

  • [Title] IMPROVING LONG-TERM OUTCOMES IN KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: TOWARDS A NEW PARADIGM OF POST-TRANSPLANT CARE IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • Since the 1950s, care for kidney transplant recipients in the United States has evolved around a model in which clinical management, quality metrics, and financial underpinnings are focused around the surgical procedure itself reflecting the concept that perioperative and short-term interventions are primary determinants of success.
  • In the current era, short-term results are indeed excellent, but long-term success remains elusive for many.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: This feasibility study assessed acute post-procedure ablation lesions by MRI, and correlated these findings with clinical outcomes.
  • Ten pediatric patients who underwent ventricular tachycardia ablation were transferred immediately post-ablation to a 1.5T MRI scanner and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging was performed to characterize ablation lesions.
  • RESULTS: Patient characteristics include median age 14 years (1 - 18 years), median weight 52 kg (11 - 81kg), normal cardiac anatomy (n = 6), d-transposition of great arteries post arterial switch repair (n = 2), anomalous coronary artery origin post repair (n = 1), and cardiac rhabdomyoma (n = 1).
  • LGE was not visible in 1 patient who had recurrence of frequent premature ventricular contractions within 2 hours, confirmed on Holter at 1 and 21 months post-procedure.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ventricular ablation lesion visibility by MRI in the acute post-procedure setting is feasible.
