  • [Title] Remission of type 2 diabetes mellitus after bariatric surgery - comparison between procedures.
  • INTRODUCTION: We aimed to assess the mid-term type 2 diabetes mellitus recovery patterns in morbidly obese patients by comparing some relevant physiological parameters of patients of bariatric surgery between two types of surgical procedures: mixed (roux-en-Y gastric bypass and biliopancreatic diversion) and restrictive (sleeve gastrectomy).
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a prospective and observational study of co-morbid, type 2 diabetes mellitus evolution in 49 morbidly obese patients: 37 underwent mixed surgery procedures and 12 a restrictive surgery procedure.
  • We recorded weight, height, body mass index, and glycaemic, lipid, and nutritional blood parameters, prior to procedure, as well as six and twelve months post-operatively.
  • RESULTS: Both glycaemic and lipid profiles diminished significantly to healthy levels by 6 and 12 months post intervention.
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus showed remission in more than 80% of patients of both types of surgical procedures, with no difference between them.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The choice of the type of surgical procedure did not significantly affect the remission rate of type 2 diabetes mellitus in morbidly obese patients. (Endokrynol Pol 2017; 68 (1): 18-25).

4. Wei S, Li D, Zhang Y, Su L, Zhang Y, Wang Q, Yang D, Li, Yang Y, Ma S: Perivascular radiofrequency renal denervation lowers blood pressure and ameliorates cardiorenal fibrosis in spontaneously hypertensive rats. PLoS One; 2017;12(4):e0176888

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) is a promising approach to treat hypertension, but innervation patterns limit the response to endovascular RDN and the post-procedural renal artery narrowing or stenosis questions the endovascular ablation strategy.
  • The tail-cuff blood pressure was measured before the ablation and on day 14 and day 28 after the procedure.
  • The plasma levels of creatinine, urea nitrogen, and catecholamines, urinary excretion of electrolytes and protein, and myocardial and glomerular fibrosis were analyzed and compared among the groups on day 28 after the procedure.
  • RESULTS: We identified that 2-watt is the optimal radiofrequency power for perivascular RDN in rats.
  • Perivascular radiofrequency and chemical ablation achieved roughly comparable blood pressure reduction in SHR but not in WKY on day 14 and day 28 following the procedure.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Radiofrequency-mediated perivascular RDN may become a feasible procedure against hypertension, and provide similar anti-hypertensive and target organ protective effects as does the chemical ablation.

5. Sud M, Qui F, Austin PC, Ko DT, Wood D, Czarnecki A, Patel V, Lee DS, Wijeysundera HC: Short Length of Stay After Elective Transfemoral Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement is Not Associated With Increased Early or Late Readmission Risk. J Am Heart Assoc; 2017 Apr 24;6(4)

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • It is not known whether the index hospital length of stay and, specifically, early discharge post-TAVR is associated with an increased risk of readmission.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a retrospective multicenter cohort analysis of patients undergoing elective transfemoral TAVR and surviving to discharge between January 2007 and March 2014.
  • The exposure variable was hospital length of stay measured from the procedure date to the date of discharge and modeled as a continuous variable in a multivariable cause-specific Cox regression.
  • Although post-TAVR length of stay was not associated with 30-day all-cause readmissions (<i>P</i>=0.925), there existed a significant association with 1-year readmission (<i>P</i>=0.010) after adjustment for baseline clinical variables.
  • The association between post-TAVR length of stay and 1-year readmission was linear (<i>P</i>=0.549 for nonlinearity) with no evidence supporting an increased readmission risk for shorter length of stays.
  • However, the risk of 1-year readmission increased with longer post-TAVR lengths of stay.

  • [Title] Outcome of treatment after failed endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) in infants with aqueductal stenosis: results from the International Infant Hydrocephalus Study (IIHS).
  • METHODS: This was a post hoc analysis of data from the International Infant Hydrocephalus Study (IIHS)-a prospective, multicentre study of infants with hydrocephalus from aqueductal stenosis who received either an ETV or shunt.
  • In the current analysis, we compared the results of the 38 infants who failed ETV and the 43 infants who received primary shunt.
  • Patients were followed prospectively for time to treatment failure, defined as the need for repeat CSF diversion procedure (shunt or ETV) or death due to hydrocephalus.
  • RESULTS: There were a total of 81 patients: 43 primary shunts, 34 shunt post-ETV, and 4 repeat ETV.
  • The median time between the primary ETV and the second intervention was 29 days (IQR 14-69), with no significant difference between repeat ETV and shunt post-ETV.
  • Median length of available follow-up was 800 days (IQR 266-1651), during which time, failure was noted in 3 (75.0%) repeat ETV patients, 10 (29.4%) shunt post-ETV patients, and 9 (20.9%) primary shunt patients.
  • In an adjusted Cox regression model, the risk of failure was higher for repeat ETV compared to primary shunt, but there was no significant difference between primary shunt and shunt post-ETV.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Void and gap evaluation using microcomputed tomography of different fiber post cementation techniques.
  • STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Few studies have investigated the voids and gaps produced during the cementation of fiber posts using different techniques.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate and quantify void and gap area formations of different fiber post cementation techniques using microcomputed tomography (μCT).
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Standardized endodontically treated acrylic resin roots (N=24) were divided into 4 groups (n=6) according to different fiber posts cemented with the resin cement (FB); fiber posts relined with composite resin followed by cementation (FBR); fiber posts cemented using an ultrasonic device (FBU); and fiber posts relined with composite resin and cemented using an ultrasonic device (FBRU).
  • Each specimen was scanned twice using micro-computed tomography (μCT; empty root, followed by after fiber post cementation).
  • The data were analyzed using 2-way ANOVA and the Tukey honest significant difference post hoc test (α=.05).
  • RESULTS: FBR showed a lower percentage of voids than obtained for FB (P<.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The use of a composite resin to reline the fiber post significantly decreased the void formation in the cementation procedure when no ultrasonic device was used.
  • The use of an ultrasonic device did not decrease the percentage of void or gap formation for any technique evaluated.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Recent anatomical and clinical studies have led to the hypothesis that in several cases of failure of response to renal denervation (RDN), the procedure has not been technically correct.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reassessed the procedural technique of RDN in 10 true resistant hypertensive patients, comparing the sites of renal ablations with the knowledge of animal and human post mortem evidences.
  • RESULTS: 10 patients were studied, 9 denervated with Simplicity monoelectrode catheter, 1 with multielectrode balloon technique.
  • Responders to the procedure underwent more ablations and particularly at least a quadrant ablation in one of the kidney arteries, >2 ablations in Dorsal plus Ventral quadrants and in 67% of then >10 ablations were done in superior inferior and ventral quadrants.
  • CONCLUSION: This study confirms the importance of a well knowledge of renal artery anatomy and underlines the relevance of the choice of ablation sites in order to obtain a successful RDN procedure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Arthrocentesis is an effective procedure for management of symptomatic patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) anterior disc displacement without reduction (ADDWOR), but its prognostic factors are still under investigation.
  • The procedure outcome (success or failure) was based on pre-set criteria for improvement in pain and maximum mouth opening (MMO) one month preoperatively.
  • RESULTS: Patients with parafunctional habits had a lower success rate than patients without these habits.
  • CONCLUSION: Arthrocentesis is an effective management method for symptomatic patients with ADDWOR at one-month post treatment, especially in the absence of parafunctional habits.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sialendoscope-assisted transoral removal of hilo-parenchymal sub-mandibular stones: surgical results and subjective scores.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical, ultrasonographic and patients' subjective outcomes of results of the trans-oral removal of HPSMS.
  • One year after the procedure, 408 patients (85.1%) were symptom free, 59 (12.3%) had recurrent obstructive symptoms and 12 (2.6%) had recurrent infections.
  • Of the 54 patients who developed a recurrent stone (11.2%), 52 underwent a second procedure: 29 interventional sialendoscopies, two sialendoscope-assisted intra-corporeal pneumatic lithotripsy, eight secondary transoral surgery to remove residual stones, six a cycle of extra-corporeal lithotripsy and seven submandibular sialadenectomy.
  • A sialendoscope-assisted trans-oral removal of large HPSMS is a safe, effective, conservative surgical procedure, and functional preservation of the main duct and parenchyma of the obstructed gland allows sialendoscopic access through the natural ostium in case of recurrence.
  • Combining a trans-oral approach with other minimally invasive, conservative procedures ensures symptomatic relief and salivary duct system clearance in the majority of patients.
  • La maggior parte dei pazienti (75.2%) ha riferito un dolore post-chirurgico di grado lieve.

NCI CPTAC Assay Portal. NCI CPTAC Assay Portal .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Methods and results: This study consisted of 84 patients who underwent both FD-OCT and IcECG during PCI.
  • Patients were classified into two groups based on ST-segment elevation (ST-E) on IcECG after the procedure; ST-E (-) group (n = 53) and ST-E (+) group (n = 31).
  • Plaque rupture (7.5% vs. 35.5%, P = 0.001), lipid-rich plaque (75.5% vs. 100%, P < 0.001), the thin cap fibroatheroma (0% vs. 25.8%, P < 0.001) on pre-FD-OCT, protrusion (18.9% vs. 56.7%, P < 0.001), and intra-stent dissection (15.1% vs. 50.0%, P < 0.001) on post-FD-OCT were significantly more frequently found in the ST-E (+) group than in the ST-E (-) group.
  • Conclusion: Plaque features assessed by FD-OCT might be associated with impaired microvascular perfusion and ST-segment elevation on IcECG after the procedure could predict 1-year cardiac events after elective PCI.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIMS: Joint-preserving surgery of the hip (JPSH) has evolved considerably and now includes a number of procedures, including arthroscopy, surgical dislocation, and redirectional osteotomies of the femur and acetabulum.
  • Consequently, it is of interest to assess the various modes of failure in order to continue to identify best practice and the indications for these procedures.
  • Re-operations were categorised into four groups: Mode 1 was arthritis progression or organ failure leading to total hip arthroplasty (THA); Mode 2 was an Incorrect diagnosis/procedure; Mode 3 resulted from malcorrection of femur (type A), acetabulum (type B), or labrum (type C) and Mode 4 resulted from an unintended consequence of the initial surgical intervention.
  • RESULTS: At a mean follow-up of 2.5 years, there had been 104 re-operations (10.2%) with a mean patient age of 35.5 years (17 to 64).
  • There were 17 Mode 2 failures (1.7%) at a mean of 2.2 years post-JPSH with a mean patient age of 28.9 years (17 to 42) (2% scopes; 1% surgical dislocations).
  • There were 19 Mode 3 failures (1.9%) at a mean of 2.0 years post-JPSH, with a mean patient age of 29.9 years (18 to 51) (2% scopes; 2% surgical dislocations; 5% PAO).
  • There were 4 Mode 4 failures (0.4%) at a mean of 1.8 years post-JPSH with a mean patient age of 31.5 years (15 to 43).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Secondary outcomes included the average amount of time required to complete each RF procedure and the adverse events associated with each technique.
  • Results. : Average SInergy group NRS and ODI scores were consistently less than those in the Simplicity III cohort at each post-RF denervation follow-up, and such differences were statistically significant at six and 12 months.
  • The Simplicity III procedure was completed approximately 2.5 times faster than the SInergy procedure, and one minor adverse event was reported in the SInergy group.
  • Conclusions. : The study results suggest that SInergy safely afforded patients with greater and more durable analgesia and disability relief than Simplicity III for SIJ-derived pain.
  • The Simplicity III procedure may be more conducive than SInergy for bilateral procedures and for patients who have limited tolerance to be in an RF procedure-required prone position.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] SU-E-T-352: MRI-Based Post Dosimetry for Prostate Seed Implant.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate the feasibility of using the MR images only for the post dosimetry evaluation of transrectal-ultrasound-guided prostate seed implant.
  • METHODS: Post dosimetry evaluation for prostate seed implant is important to ensure the target dose coverage and the normal tissue sparing.
  • CT is primarily used for this procedure and MR image is used in some institutions for target delineation because of its advantages on soft tissue discrimination.
  • It will reduce the cost and increase the efficiency and the accuracy as well to use the MR images alone for the post dosimetry.
  • The barrier for performing MRI based post dosimetry is the accuracy of seed finding.
  • RESULTS: Iodine-125 seed were used for the implant and the average seed number is 77 for the selected patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Most of the seeds can be found on MR images accurately and the MRI-based post dosimetry is feasible as proven by the V100 that has no significant difference comparing with the CT-based dosimetry.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. OXYCODONE .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIM: To evaluate if pre- and post-procedure administration of controlled-release oxycodone (CRO) in combination with standard analgesia improves pain control and decreases the amount of required post-procedure opioids in uterine fibroid embolisation (UFE).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2009 and March 2010, 60 consecutive women were prospectively randomised in two groups for UFE: the control group, in which 30 patients underwent the standard anaesthetic procedure and the CRO group, in which 30 patients underwent the standard anaesthetic procedure with the addition of CRO.
  • Age, pain, nausea/vomiting, fibroid volume, length of hospital stay, and use and dose of morphine received via the patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) device in both groups were evaluated to compare the two methods of pain control.
  • Fibroid volume as measured at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was evaluated for correlation with post-embolisation pelvic pain over a period of 24 hours.
  • RESULTS: A significant difference was seen in the pain scores at 24 hours (p=0.029), with less pain in the CRO group.

  • Intra-fraction variation is measured on compiling pre and post treatment RCT measurements while inter-fractionation variation compiled along with fractions before treatment.
  • RESULTS: Pre-treatment radial setup difference auto calculated by the system varies from 0.5mm to 0.8 mm with mean variation of 0.7 mm.
  • Positional variation was observed for post-treatment and was found that it varies from 0.9 mm - 1.0 mm.
  • Paired sample test results the paired difference mean from the reference (for pre and post measurements) was 0.26 mm (0.1775 mm- 0.3475 mm) with only 25% of error significance.
  • The distribution of the random component of observer uncertainty was 0.06mm.
  • CONCLUSION: Post treatment positional variation is 20%-30% of pre treatment measurements, i.e. about treatment measurements, i.e. about 0.2 mm.
  • Explaining complete procedure to patient, limiting head rotation/lift and preventing other movements, may maximize positional accuracy during fractionations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Impact of prior procedures on overall survival following radioembolization in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
  • In this analysis, the impact of prior hepatic-directed procedures on the outcome with RE was evaluated.
  • RESULTS: Patients (n=325) were mostly Child-Pugh class A (82.5%), had underlying cirrhosis (78.5%) and a good performance status (ps; ECOG 0-1: 87.7%) but many had multinodular (75.7%) advanced disease (BCLC 'C': 56.3%) invading both lobes (52.9%) and/or portal vein occlusion (13.5% branch; 9.8% main).
  • Of these, 182 patients (56.0%) had received RE as first line treatment while 143 patients (44.0%) had had prior hepatic surgery (n=61; 18.8%), ablation (n=29; 8.9%) and/or vascular procedures (n=98; 30.2%), mostly as a single procedure (n=101; 31.1%).
  • No statistically significant differences were observed in overall survival between the prior procedure and treatment naïve groups (median 13.1 [95% CI 10.9-19.6] vs. 12.5 [10.3-15.9] months; p=0.289); BCLC 'A' patients who had received a prior procedure survived longer post-RE than those who received RE first line (33.7 [19.6-46.8] vs. 22.1[15.1-38.1] months; p=0.047).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with HCC who had failed prior procedures can be treated effectively with RE and had outcomes similar to those who were treatment naive.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Evaluation of the tumor registration error in biopsy procedures performed under real-time PET/CT guidance.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to quantify tumor displacement during real-time PET/CT guided biopsy and to investigate correlations between tumor displacement and false-negative results.
  • The biopsy needle was inserted and a post-insertion CT scan was acquired.
  • The DIR deformation vector field (DVF) was used to calculate the mean displacement between the pre-insertion and post-insertion CT scans for a region around the tip of the biopsy needle.
  • For 12 patients, one biopsy core each was tracked during histopathological testing to investigate correlations of the mean displacement between the two CT scans and false-negative or true positive biopsy results.
  • For 11 patients, two PET scans were acquired; one at the beginning of the procedure, pre-needle insertion, and an additional one with the needle in place.
  • The corrected PET was compared with the PET post-needle insertion to validate the correction method.
  • RESULTS: The mean displacement of tissue around the needle between the pre-biopsy CT and the post-needle insertion CT was 5.1 mm (min = 1.1 mm, max = 10.9 mm and SD = 3.0 mm).
  • For mean displacements larger than 7.2 mm, the biopsy cores gave false negative results.
  • Misregistration between the pre-biopsy PET and the CT acquired with the needle in place was shown to correlate with false negative biopsy results.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate the role of post-procedural hemoglobin (hb), without pre-discharge ultrasound (US), after US-guided renal biopsy in children.
  • Procedures were performed under real-time US guidance.
  • RESULTS: A total of 330 procedures in 300 children (141 females, mean age 11.2 ± 4.30 years) were analyzed.
  • Post-procedural hematoma occurred in 63%.
  • There was a significant (p = 0.0001) post-procedural hb decrease of 6.3 ± 5.5 g/L and %hb decrease of 4.56 ± 4.01%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bleeding complications from US-guided native kidney biopsies in pediatric outpatients can be safely followed by a complete blood count at 6 h post procedure.

32. Gulati G, Ouyang D, Ha R, Banerjee D: Optimal timing of same-admission orthotopic heart transplantation after left ventricular assist device implantation. World J Cardiol; 2017 Feb 26;9(2):154-161

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Optimal timing of same-admission orthotopic heart transplantation after left ventricular assist device implantation.
  • AIM: To investigate the impact of timing of same-admission orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation on in-hospital mortality and post-transplant length of stay.
  • METHODS: Using data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 1998 to 2011, we identified patients 18 years of age or older who underwent implantation of a LVAD and for whom the procedure date was available.
  • Finally, we analyzed the effect of time to OHT after LVAD implantation on the length of hospital stay post-transplant.
  • RESULTS: Two thousand and two hundred patients underwent implantation of a LVAD in this cohort.
  • Post-transplant length of stay after LVAD implantation was also not significantly different between patients who underwent early <i>vs</i> late OHT.
  • Delayed timing of OHT after LVAD implantation did not correlate with longer hospital stays post-transplant.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIM: To determine the procedure-related factors that affect sedation satisfaction and to make a suggestion to improve it.
  • METHODS: We prospectively enrolled a total of 456 patients who underwent outpatient endoscopy procedures with midazolam sedation between March 2014 and August 2014.
  • All patients completed both pre- and post-endoscopy questionnaires about sedation expectations and satisfaction.
  • RESULTS: The study cohort included 167 (36.6%) patients who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), 167 (36.6%) who underwent colonoscopy, and 122 (26.8%) who underwent a combined procedure (EGD and colonoscopy).
  • In univariate and multivariate analyses, total procedure time in the EGD group, younger age (≤ 50 years), and longer colonoscopy withdrawal time in the colonoscopy group were related to decreased satisfaction with sedation.
  • However, in active monitoring and intervention group, there was no decrease in grade of satisfaction despite longer procedure time due to more procedures during colonoscopy.
  • Younger age (≤ 50 years), longer inter-procedure time gap, and colonoscopy withdrawal time were related to decreased satisfaction in the combined EGD and colonoscopy group.
  • Satisfaction with sedation depends on several factors including age (≤ 50 years) and procedure time duration.
  • To improve patient satisfaction with sedation, active monitoring of sedation status by the endoscopist should be considered for patients who require long procedure time.

34. Lu Y, Wu Y, Liu J, Li J, Zhang P: Understanding Health Care Social Media Use From Different Stakeholder Perspectives: A Content Analysis of an Online Health Community. J Med Internet Res; 2017 Apr 07;19(4):e109

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Therefore, identifying the concerns of different stakeholders and how they use health care social media when confronted with huge amounts of health-related messages posted by users is a critical problem.
  • METHODS: We collected 138,161 messages posted by 39,606 members in lung cancer, diabetes, and breast cancer forums in the online community MedHelp.org over 10 years (January 2007 to October 2016) as experimental data.
  • RESULTS: We identified 3 significantly different stakeholder groups using expectation maximization clustering (3 performance metrics: Rand=0.802, Jaccard=0.393, Fowlkes-Mallows=0.537; P<.001), in which patients (24,429/39,606, 61.68%) and caregivers (12,232/39,606, 30.88%) represented the majority of the population, in contrast to specialists (2945/39,606, 7.43%).
  • We identified 5 significantly different health-related topics: symptom, examination, drug, procedure, and complication (Rand=0.783, Jaccard=0.369, Fowlkes-Mallows=0.495; P<.001).
  • By comparison, caregivers were more concerned about drug topics related to lung cancer (300/2721, 11.03% vs 109/1657, 6.58%), procedure topics related to breast cancer (3952/13,954, 28.32% vs 5822/23,934, 24.33%), and complication topics (4449/25,701, 17.31% vs 4070/31,495, 12.92%).
  • The pattern was opposite for drug and procedure topics.

NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The endoscopic radiofrequency procedure (Stretta) has been used for more than a decade to treat patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
  • However, the efficacy of the procedure in improving objective and subjective clinical endpoints needs to be further established.
  • AIM: To determine the efficacy of the Stretta procedure in treating patients with GERD, using a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled and cohort studies.
  • METHODS: We conducted a systematic search of the PubMed and Cochrane databases for English language clinical studies of the Stretta procedure, published from inception until May 2016.
  • Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and cohort studies that included the use of the Stretta procedure in GERD patients were included.
  • Results were calculated by both fixed effects and random effects model.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-eight studies (4 RCTs, 23 cohort studies, and 1 registry) representing 2468 unique Stretta patients were included in the meta-analysis.
  • The pooled results showed that the Stretta reduced (improved) the health-related quality of life score by -14.6 [-16.48, -12.73] (P < 0.001).
  • Lower esophageal sphincter (LES) basal pressure was increased post Stretta therapy by a mean of 1.73 [-0.29, 3.74] mmHg (P = NS).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The Stretta procedure significantly improves subjective and objective clinical endpoints, except LES basal pressure, and therefore should be considered as a viable alternative in managing GERD.

  • Gastroenterology imaging is a diagnostic procedure that incorporates various computer vision challenges for the design of assisted diagnostic systems.
  • The most typical challenge is the design of more adequate visual descriptors that can assist the classification algorithms in getting good diagnostic results.
  • Although good results are obtained, these techniques have their shortcomings.
  • We validate the performance of the descriptor on a novel gastroenterology dataset: the Post-MAPS dataset.
  • Our results show that the proposed feature set outperforms the other methods that have been considered in this paper.

  • [Title] Outcomes of Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and Sphincterotomy for Suspected Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD) Post Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass.
  • BACKGROUND: Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) is thought to be a cause of chronic abdominal pain post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and current practice of performing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with or without sphincterotomy is not supported by evidence.
  • In addition to the complexity and risks of the procedure in patients with Roux-en-Y anatomy, the outcomes are uncertain and debatable.
  • We performed a retrospective review and analysis of post-gastric bypass patients who had undergone ERCP with sphincterotomy to determine the effectiveness in patients with suspected SOD.
  • RESULTS: We identified 50 patients who underwent laparoscopic-assisted gastrostomy for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass over the study period.
  • Three patients (9%) had post-ERCP pancreatitis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SOD in patients post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is complex due to multiple confounding factors.
  • Rome III and Milwaukee classification systems assist us in the diagnosis and treatment of sphincter dysfunction until we have a better way to predict treatment response post sphincterotomy.

  • [Title] Endophlebectomy of the common femoral vein and arteriovenous fistula creation as adjuncts to venous stenting for post-thrombotic syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Good results have been reported for angioplasty and stenting of post-thrombotic lesions of the iliac and proximal femoral veins.
  • Because of a temporary increase in thrombogenicity, this procedure may be accompanied by arteriovenous fistula creation.
  • RESULTS: Seventy-six legs (70 patients) were included.
  • CONCLUSION: The combination of venous stenting, endophlebectomy and arteriovenous fistula creation for patients with extensive post-thrombotic vein damage and severe post-thrombotic syndrome is feasible.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Thirty-day emergency room visits and hospital admissions after outpatient non-vascular image-guided procedures.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the rate of post-procedure emergency department (ED) visits and hospital admissions following outpatient non-vascular image-guided interventions performed under moderate sedation and to identify common and preventable causes of emergency department visits and hospital admissions.
  • 1426 consecutive patients undergoing 1512 outpatient image-guided procedures under moderate sedation from November 2012 to August 2014 were included.
  • Major procedure categories included ultrasound-guided liver biopsies, ultrasound-guided kidney biopsies, and CT-guided lung biopsies/fiducial placement.
  • Procedure details and medical follow-up within and after 30 days of the procedure were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: A total of 168 (11.8%) patients were admitted to the hospital within 30 days of the procedure, with 29 of the admissions (17.3% of total admissions and 1.9% of total procedures) being procedure related.
  • The most common procedure-related complication that required admission was hemorrhage (10/29, 34.5% of procedure-related admissions, 6.0% of total admissions, and 0.7% of total procedures), followed by pneumothorax (9/29, 31%, 5.4%, 0.6%), infection (4/29, 13.8%, 2.4%, 0.3%), and pain (3/29, 10.3%, 1.8%, 0.2%).
  • Eighteen (62.1%) procedure-related admissions were immediately indicated.
  • Thirty patients visited the ED and were subsequently discharged without admission with eight of the visits being procedure related (8/1512, 0.5%).
  • All the procedure-related ED visits were due to pain.
  • There were two deaths (2/1512, 0.1%) related to procedures, one from a thromboembolic event and another from post-biopsy hemorrhage.
  • CONCLUSION: Outpatient non-vascular image-guided procedures result in a 30-day 1.9% hospital admission, 30-day 0.5% emergency room visit, and 30-day 0.1% mortality rate.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: Fourteen surgeons were included in the study.
  • There was a statistically significant improvement in the intern group between the overall pre-test score and the overall post-test score.
  • There was no significant improvement in the overall score of the control group between the pre-test and post-test.
  • We believe that the benefit of simulation resides in learning the skills needed to perform a surgical procedure, not in learning the procedure itself.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cs-131, which has higher dose rate is being used to treat brain, head and/or neck cancers in our clinic, therefore, we chose to monitor the dose received by surgeons during the extensive procedure.
  • RESULTS: The median equivalent dose rate at 1 m and bedside immediately following implantation were 1.49×10-2 mSv/h (8.77×10-3-2.63×10-2) and 7.76×10-2 mSv/h (3.1×10-2- 1.53×10-1) respectively.
  • Surgical reconstruction for one patient was performed 71 days post-implant and resulted in zero exposure to surgeons.
  • Post procedure surveys at bed site and 1 m indicated that all patients were within safe limits for discharge (< 0.05 mSv/h at 1 m).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We aimed to describe the technical aspects and the adverse events associated with the procedure in critically ill patients.
  • RESULTS: We report on 260 plasma exchange procedures performed in 50 patients.
  • The centrifugation technique was used for 159 (61%) procedures and the filtration technique for the other 101 (39%) procedures.
  • Seventy (26.9%) of the 260 plasma exchange procedures were reported with at least one adverse reaction.
  • The post-exchange fibrinogen level was decreased by 54% [48;66] with albumin 5%, and 4% [-5;17] with plasma frozen within 24 h.
  • Twenty-three (22.8%) of the 101 filtration procedures experienced filter clotting.
  • Filter clotting was associated with a higher volume exchange prescribed when compared to procedures without filter clotting (4600 [4000;5000] ml vs. 3900 [3600;4800] ml, P < .01).
  • CONCLUSION: Plasma exchange is a relatively safe and generally well-tolerated procedure in the ICU setting.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed in all PCI procedures from January 2013 until December 2015.
  • RESULTS: One thousand one hundred sixty eight procedures were performed from our department during the study period: 308 patients (26.4%) were discharged the same day (SDD group) and the rest 860 procedures (73.6%) had at least one overnight stay (non-SDD group).
  • Multivariate analysis revealed that forearm approach (OR=5.498, CI: 2.067-14.629; p=<0.001), patient's residency proximal to the hospital (OR=4.543, CI: 2.406-8.580; p<0.001), completion of the procedure before 13,00p.m. (OR=3.437, CI: 1.789-0.6.601; p<0.001) and the success of the performed procedure (OR=1.125, CI 1.043-2.135; p=0.044) were positive predictors of SDD, while presentation with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction or unstable angina (OR=0.542, CI: 0.268-0.872; p<0.010) and amount of contrast used (OR=0.910, CI: 0.852-0.969; p<0.030) were negative predictors of SDD.
  • CONCLUSION: In retrospect, both procedural and demographic details play a crucial role in patient selection for same day discharge post coronary percutaneous intervention.

EuroIntervention; 2017 Apr 07;12(18):e2170-e2176

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The aim of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of the Evolut R device compared with the former-generation CoreValve.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: In a nationwide, prospective, multicentre cohort study, outcomes of consecutive transfemoral TAVI patients treated with the new-generation Medtronic Evolut R (September 2014 - February 2016) and the Medtronic CoreValve (February 2011 - February 2016) were investigated.
  • Implantation of the Evolut R was associated with a lower use of predilatation (48.1% vs. 72.4%, p<0.001), a shorter procedure time (67.9±36 min vs. 76.7±42 min, p=0.002), and less contrast dye use during the procedure (155.2±98 ml vs. 208.0±117 ml, p<0.001).
  • Post-procedural mean gradient was comparable (7.4±4.7 mmHg vs. 7.5±5.0 mmHg), as were the 30-day rates of moderate to severe aortic regurgitation (8.5% vs. 10.5%), major vascular (9.8% vs. 10.3%) and life-threatening bleeding complications (5.4% vs. 5.3%), disabling stroke (1.9% vs. 1.6%), all-cause mortality (3.2% vs. 3.4%) as well as permanent pacemaker implantation (22.1% vs. 23.4%).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Primary success of the procedure was defined as closure of a common femoral artery (CFA) arteriotomy without the need for any secondary surgical or endovascular procedure within 30 days.
  • RESULTS: In total there were 10 pEVAR cases performed in the study period, one case in Queen Elizabeth Hospital during visiting vascular service.
  • 50% of patients were discharged at post-operative day one, 30%- day two and 20%- day three.
  • DISCUSSION: We believe that with proper selection of patients undergoing EVAR, pEVAR offers a better option of vascular access with shorter operative time, less post- operative pain, shorter hospital stay and minimises the potential complications of a conventional femoral cutdown.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: A total of 359 patients were assessed and finally 310 patients were analyzed.
  • Compared with the sniff tested patients, the meatuscopied patients had significantly lower epistaxis rates during insertion/exertion, better visual capacity after decongestive anesthesia and shorter total procedure time.
  • A significantly higher proportion of the meatuscopied than sniff tested patients would like to receive the same procedure next time.
  • CONCLUSION: Selection of an optimal meatus insertion tract by an anterior meatuscopy causes lesser nasal pain, epistaxis and post-procedural side effects in nasal anesthesia and UT-EGD than the conventional sniff test.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To examine outcomes of clinical procedures for renal angiomyolipoma associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) based on US national health claims databases.
  • Based on claims diagnosis codes, we estimated the prevalence rates of 10 angiomyolipoma-related conditions and 50 embolization- or nephrectomy-related conditions in the pre- and post-baseline periods respectively, and made cross-year and cross-period comparison of these rates with repeated measures analysis methods.
  • RESULTS: The embolization cohort (N = 4280) and the nephrectomy cohort (N = 3842) had mean baseline ages of 50.7 and 51.7 years with 52.5% and 51.3% males, respectively.
  • Embolization was associated with post-procedure increases in renal mass or unspecified kidney/ureter disorder (13.9%), other disorders of kidney and ureter (3.4%), non-acute renal insufficiency (3.1%), flank pain (3.7%), renal insufficiency (3.2%), etc. (all p < .05).
  • Nephrectomy was associated with post-procedure increases in postoperative ileus (5.3%), pain and headache (4.8%), paralytic ileus (3.6%), etc. (all p < .05).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Impact of Body Contouring Procedures on Post-Bariatric Surgery Weight Loss.
  • There is a dearth of literature examining weight loss outcomes in patients undergoing abdominal lipectomy post sleeve gastrectomy (SG).
  • The purpose of this study was to examine whether post-SG patients who received abdominal lipectomy achieved greater percent excess weight loss (%EWL) than post-SG patients who did not receive abdominal lipectomy.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-nine patients were included in the PS-SG group versus 287 patients in the SG group.
  • Although larger studies are needed, this study supports using abdominal lipectomy as an adjunctive procedure to assist with long-term weight loss as part of the overall treatment of bariatric surgery patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] Different effects of bariatric surgical procedures on dyslipidemia: a registry-based analysis.
  • RESULTS: The greatest mean total-cholesterol (TC) reduction was observed post-RYGB, 226.7±26.4 to 181.3±30.9 mg/dL (19.9%, n = 208), followed by post-SG, 227.9±24.4 to 206.7±34.2 mg/dL (8.9%, n = 1515; P<.001).
  • Normal TC levels of below 200 mg/dL were achieved by 76% post-RYGB patients compared with 43.5% post-SG patients (odds ratio [OR] = 6.24, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.69-10.53) and 25.6% post-LABG patients (OR = 9.66, 95% CI: 4.11-22.67; P<.01).
  • Although equivalent patterns were observed for low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), the levels of high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) were most improved post-SG, reaching normal levels in 58.1% of SG male patients versus 39.5% of RYGB male patients (OR = 1.56, 95% CI: 1.04-2.35), (P = .02).
  • The lowering of triglyceride levels by approximately 75% was comparable after SG and RYGB procedures.
  • Our results could aid in the decision-making process regarding the most appropriate procedure for patients with dyslipidemia.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Resource utilization was evaluated 24 months pre- and post- index CA procedure.
  • RESULTS: In a cohort of 1,556 patients, resource utilization increased progressively over the 24-month period leading to index CA (p for trend <0.05 for hospitalizations, ER visits, outpatient visits, cardioversions, and echocardiograms).
  • After index CA, all-cause hospitalizations, hospitalizations for AF, ER visits, cardioversions, and echocardiograms were reduced 12 months post CA compared to 12 months prior (all-cause hospitalizations 0.8 to 0.6 per patient per year; hospitalizations for AF 0.4 to 0.3; ER visits 2.9 to 1.8; cardioversions 0.5 to 0.2; echocardiograms 0.8 to 0.5; p<0.05 for all trends).
  • Resource utilization continued to decline at 24 months post CA (vs. 12 months prior) for all-cause hospitalizations (0.4), cardioversions (0.1), and echocardiograms (0.3) (per patient year; p<0.05 for all trends).
  • CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the pattern of increasing health care resource utilization preceding CA for AF reverses after CA to lower than pre-ablation levels up to 24 months post CA.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • For each patient, blood samples were drawn by venous puncture, one immediately prior to MWA and the others on Post-Procedure Days (PPD) 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 14.
  • RESULTS: We did not observe a significant difference of serum VEGF and MMP-9 between NSCLC patients and healthy controls.
  • Although it gradually reduced afterwards, its levels on PPD14 (141.2 ± 4.41 pg/ml, p < 0.05) was still higher than pre-procedure level.
  • The serum MMP-9 level was significantly elevated from PPD1 (231.3 ± 7.93 ng/ml, p < 0.05) until PPD10 (155.3 ± 5.62 ng/ml, p < 0.05), while it normalised to pre-procedure level on PPD14 (90.78 ± 3.36 ng/ml, p > 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Our preliminary results indicated that percutaneous MWA resulted in increased serum levels of VEGF and MMP-9 in Stage I NSCLC patients.
  • Antiangiogenesis approaches may be helpful for patients defending against metastases during the immediate post-ablation time window.

  • Their inadequate therapy results in severe wrist damage and patient disability.
  • RESULTS The correct diagnosis was made on early examination in 16 patients (62%), within a week of injury in four patients (15%), within a months of injury in two patients (8%) and even later in four patients (15%).
  • The results of treatment evaluation based on the Wrightington Hospital Wrist Scoring System were excellent in 19%, good in 54%, satisfactory in 19% and poor in 8% of the patients.
  • The poor results in the other patient were associated with complex regional pain syndrome.
  • DISCUSSION Perilunate injuries of the wrist are quite frequent and although the treatment procedure is commonly known, its principles are not always obeyed.
  • The patient in whom necrosis of the lunate bone developed had the diagnosis made at 1 post-injury month.
  • Early reduction of bone structures and reconstruction of ligaments also contribute to good results.
  • CONCLUSIONS Good outcomes in perilunate injuries depend on an early and correct diagnosis, an appropriate therapeutic procedure and an orthopaedic surgeon who has experience with management of such injuries.

  • Gastroenterology imaging is a diagnostic procedure that incorporates various computer vision challenges for the design of assisted diagnostic systems.
  • The most typical challenge is the design of more adequate visual descriptors that can assist the classification algorithms in getting good diagnostic results.
  • Although good results are obtained, these techniques have their shortcomings.
  • We validate the performance of the descriptor on a novel gastroenterology dataset: the Post-MAPS dataset.
  • Our results show that the proposed feature set outperforms the other methods that have been considered in this paper.

  • Frequently, the injury results from direct axial load of the toe, or "stubbing", which causes the fracture and associated soft tissue injury.
  • In this article, we present a 12year-old male who sustained an open physeal fracture of the distal phalanx when he "stubbed" his great toe on a bed post.
  • His injury was initially misdiagnosed at an urgent care facility, thereby delaying appropriate intervention and necessitating an operative surgical procedure.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.

  • Therefore, pre-post effects of AAP administration on plasma oxytocin and serum cortisol levels were investigated in <i>n</i> = 44 mothers 3 months after parturition.
  • Oxytocin levels increased from pre to post in the significant majority of 73% participants (<i>p</i> = 0.004) and cortisol decreased in the significant majority of 73% participants (<i>p</i> = 0.004).
  • These results show that the AAP test procedure induces an oxytocin response.
  • Concerning the results within the four AAP representation subgroups, our hypothesis of a particularly strong increase in oxytocin in secure mothers was not confirmed; however, in secure mothers we observed a particularly strong decrease in cortisol.
  • Effect sizes are reported, allowing the replication of results in a larger study with sufficient sample size to draw final conclusions with respect to differences in OT and cortisol alterations depending on attachment representation.
  • When interpreting the results, one should keep in mind that this study investigated lactating mothers.
  • Thus, the generalizability of results is limited and future studies should investigate non-lactating healthy females as well as males and include a control stimulus condition.

  • [Title] Alveolar ridge dimensional changes following ridge preservation procedure with novel devices: part 3 - histological analysis in non-human primate model.
  • RESULTS: Control sockets with unassisted healing (Groups A and D) underwent severe loss of bone width, height and total area (approximately 40-60% loss).
  • Application of SocketKAP™ in sites with intact walls, as well as SocketKAP™ plus SocketKAGE™ in sites with defective buccal walls lead to higher preservation of alveolar bone height after 12 weeks post-intervention.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SocketKAP™ + SocketKAGE™ devices proved effective in reducing post-extraction alveolar bone resorption mediating favorable wound healing within sockets.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Results of lymphaticovenous anastomoses (LVA) in surgical treatment of lymphedema appear to be favorable.
  • The aim of this study is to analyze the results of LVA on 31 patients and to review the existing literature.
  • RESULTS: The post-LVA arm circumference was measured at three levels (wrist, forearm, and arm) in 31 female patients.
  • CONCLUSION: The review of the current literature and the present study revealed modest results in terms of decreased excess volume, although a major improvement in function points to LVA as a useful technique in this indication.
  • Progress in imaging techniques has enhanced the results achieved with this procedure, although further studies on recurrence rates are needed with a follow-up greater than 1 year.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Most of modern endoscopic procedures (e.g., TURP) are only confined to small and medium-sized glands (up to 80 cm3), but not HoLEP, which allows to enucleate large and extremely large prostates (200 cm3).
  • A total of 459 patients were divided into three groups: Group 1 included 278 patients (prostate volume <100 cm3); mean prostate volume, 70.8+/-16.1 cm3; IPSS, 18.7+/-5.5; QoL, 4.1+/-0.5; Qmax, 6.2+/-1.5 mL/s; post-voided residual volume, 64.2+/-30.5 mL.
  • Group 2 included 169 patients (prostate volume 100-200 cm3); mean prostate volume, 148.1+/-25.2 cm3; IPSS, 19.7+/-3.3; QoL, 4.2+/-0.7; Qmax, 5.9+/-0.7 mL/s; post-voided residual volume, 70.9+/-20.1 mL.
  • Group 3 included 12 patients (prostate volume >200 cm3); mean prostate volume, 230.1+/-18.1 cm3; IPSS, 19.5+/-4.5; QoL, 4.1+/-0.3; Qmax, 4.7+/-0.9 mL/s; post-voided residual volume, 72.3+/-10.9 mL.
  • RESULTS: The average duration of surgery in Group 1 was 56.5+/-10.7 min; in group 2, 96.4+/-24.9 min; in Group 3, 120.9+/-35 min.
  • Similar results were obtained for the efficiency of morcellation.
  • In order to compare the long-term results of HoLEP for prostates of different sizes, all the 459 patients were followed up for 18 months.
  • IPSS, Qmax, QoL, and post-voided residual volumes were measured.
  • CONCLUSIONS: It follows from our two years experience that HoLEP is a safe, highly efficacious and a size-independent procedure, which is why it has become a new gold standard for treatment of extremely large prostatic hyperplasia in our clinic.

82. Nilsson J, Granrot I, Mattsson J, Omazic B, Uhlin M, Thunberg S: Functionality testing of stem cell grafts to predict infectious complications after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Vox Sang; 2017 May 02;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a routine clinical procedure performed to treat patients with haematological malignancies, primary immune deficiencies or metabolic disorders.
  • The study aim was to evaluate whether measurement of the responses of antigen-specific T-cells, recognizing infectious pathogens would correlate to protective functions in the stem cell recipient post-transplant.
  • Results were compared to the recipients' clinical records 1-year post-transplantation.
  • RESULTS: We show that an extensive repertoire of transferred antigen-specific T-cells from allogeneic donor grafts against infectious agents, involved in post-transplant infections, are linked to an absence of infectious complications for the recipient up-to 1-year post-transplant.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that assaying T-cell function before HSCT could determine individual risks for infectious complications and thus aid in clinical decision-making regarding prophylactic and pre-emptive anti-infective therapy.

  • [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.

85. Chen PY, Liu YM, Chen ML: The Effect of Hypnosis on Anxiety in Patients With Cancer: A Meta-Analysis. Worldviews Evid Based Nurs; 2017 Mar 07;

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Qualified studies including randomized controlled trials (RCT) and pre-post design studies were identified by searching seven electronic databases: Scopus, Medline Ovidsp, PubMed, PsycInfo-Ovid, Academic Search Premier, CINAHL Plus with FT-EBSCO, and SDOL.
  • RESULTS: Our meta-analysis of 20 studies found that hypnosis had a significant immediate effect on anxiety in cancer patients (Hedges' g: 0.70-1.41, p < .01) and the effect was sustained (Hedges' g: 0.61-2.77, p < .01).
  • Higher mean effect sizes were also found with pediatric study samples, hematological malignancy, studies on procedure-related stressors, and with mixed-gender samples.
  • LINKING EVIDENCE TO ACTION: Hypnosis can reduce anxiety of cancer patients, especially for pediatric cancer patients who experience procedure-related stress.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: Fifty EC strains isolated from 12 different animal species were detected with the assay, while none of the other 26 examined bacterial species were tested positive during validation procedure.
  • Field application of the PCR setup was tested comparing two different broiler production cycles on one farm: in cycle I broilers showed signs of enterococcal spondylitis (ES) from day 24 post hatch onwards while broilers in cycle II developed no ES.
  • A high correlation was found between qPCR results from cecum and cloacal swabs in this study, indicating that cloacal swabs can be used to examine intestinal colonization of broilers with EC.

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care; 2017 Apr 01;:2048872617706480

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Randomised controlled trials have provided conflicting results regarding procedural and clinical outcomes of thrombus aspiration combined with percutaneous coronary intervention, when compared with primary percutaneous coronary intervention alone in patients with acute coronary syndromes.
  • Procedural success was defined as post-procedural thrombolysis in myocardial infarction III flow in the infarct-related artery.
  • RESULTS: Among 1641 patients, 777 (47.4%) had angiographic evidence of coronary thrombus.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this real-world acute coronary syndrome cohort, patients treated by thrombus aspiration with percutaneous coronary intervention showed no difference in the restoration of coronary blood flow compared with percutaneous coronary intervention alone immediately after the procedure.
