  • [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.

  • [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. 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.

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: Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) can easily be obtained from a mini-lipoaspirate procedure of fat tissue and platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be obtained from peripheral blood.
  • METHODS: A total of ten patients underwent a local tumescent liposuction procedure to remove approximately 100 ml of fat tissue from the abdomen.
  • RESULTS: The average total WOMAC score was 64 at baseline and significantly reduced to 52 at 3 months, 46 at 6 months, 42 at 1 year, 38 at 1.5 years, and 41 at 2 years.
  • Patients walked an average of 1310 feet at baseline and demonstrated a statistically significant improvement at 3 and 6 months and 1, 1.5, and 2 years post treatment.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Overall, all of the patients were pleased with the treatment results.
  • More importantly, the procedure demonstrated a strong safety profile with no severe adverse events or complications reported.

6. 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.

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

8. Beaulé PE, Bleeker H, Singh A, Dobransky J: Defining modes of failure after joint-preserving surgery of the hip. Bone Joint J; 2017 Mar;99-B(3):303-309

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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] A combined hands-on teaching program and clinical pathway focused on pleural ultrasound and procedure supervision transforms pleural procedure outcomes.
  • We reviewed the outcomes from pleural procedures after the instigation of pleural effusion management guidelines focusing on pleural ultrasound and a hands-on teaching program followed with procedure supervision that enabled many operators to perform such procedures.
  • METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all procedures performed for pleural effusions on medical patients.
  • RESULTS: 171 procedures involving 129 patients (pre-pathway group) and 146 procedures involving 115 patients (post pathway group) were analysed.
  • The rate of complications prior to the pleural pathway was 22.2% (38 of 171 procedures).
  • Following the pathway, the rate of complications declined to 7.5% (11 of 146 procedures, p < 0.003).
  • The number of patients who underwent repeated procedures (defined as ≥3) reduced dramatically (21 vs 7, p < 0.01).
  • This improvement occurred using many supervised operators who completed the hands-on teaching program (n = 32) and followed the pleural pathway (127 of 146 procedures).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The instigation of a clinical pathway focused on the use of bedside pleural ultrasound and teaching of drainage techniques with procedure supervision vastly improved patient outcomes.

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.

  • [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.

33. Kunkeri SP, Sathyanarayana Rao TS, Andrade C: Study of sexual functioning and disorder in women before and after tubal sterilization (tubectomy). Indian J Psychiatry; 2017 Jan-Mar;59(1):63-68

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Available studies have found conflicting results; some have reported that sterilization has positive effects on sexual functioning since anxiety of getting pregnant is abolished.
  • However, few Indian studies have reported a decline in sexual functioning following the sterilization procedure as women lack interest and perceive sexual function only for the purpose of procreation.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of sixty married women above 18 years, who were consulting Family Planning Association, Mysore, for the purpose of undergoing tubal sterilization, and who gave a written consent were interviewed twice; before the sterilization procedure and 6 months post-sterilization.
  • RESULTS: The prevalence of sexual dysfunction in the study population was 36.7% before the tubal sterilization.
  • This rate increased to 71.7% after the procedure which was statistically significant.

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.

J Clin Oncol; 2011 May 20;29(15_suppl):4099

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to develop a procedure simulation platform for in vitro transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using patient-specific 3-dimensional (3D) printed tissue-mimicking phantoms.
  • We investigated the feasibility of using these 3D printed phantoms to quantitatively predict the occurrence, severity, and location of any degree of post-TAVR paravalvular leaks (PVL).
  • The CoreValve (self-expanding valve) prostheses were deployed in the phantoms to simulate the TAVR procedure, from which post-TAVR aortic root strain was quantified in vitro.
  • A novel index, the annular bulge index, was measured to assess the post-TAVR annular strain unevenness in the phantoms.
  • We tested the comparative predictive value of the bulge index and other known predictors of post-TAVR PVL.
  • RESULTS: The maximum annular bulge index was significantly different among patient subgroups that had no PVL, trace-to-mild PVL, and moderate-to-severe PVL (p = 0.001).
  • Also, in 12 patients with post-TAVR PVL, the annular bulge index predicted the major PVL location in 9 patients (accuracy = 75%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this proof-of-concept study, we have demonstrated the feasibility of using 3D printed tissue-mimicking phantoms to quantitatively assess the post-TAVR aortic root strain in vitro.
  • A novel indicator of the post-TAVR annular strain unevenness, the annular bulge index, outperformed the other established variables and achieved a high level of accuracy in predicting post-TAVR PVL, in terms of its occurrence, severity, and location.

  • 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.

  • 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] 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.

  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Evaluation of pre- and post-pyriform plasty nasal airflow.
  • Relatively few authors currently describe surgical procedures in the piriform aperture for nasal valve augmentation.
  • OBJECTIVE: To compare pre- and post-pyriform plasty nasal airflow variations using rhinomanometry and the NOSE questionnaire.
  • The results of these two parameters were compared pre- and postoperatively.
  • RESULTS: Regarding the subjective measure, the NOSE questionnaire, seven patients reported improvement, of which two reported marked improvement, and one patient reported an unchanged obstructive condition.
  • Regarding the rhinomanometry assessment, of 96 comparative measurements between the preoperative and postoperative periods, we obtained 68 measurements with an increase in nasal airflow in the postoperative period, 26 negative results, and two cases that remained unaltered between the preoperative and postoperative periods.
  • CONCLUSION: When analyzing the results obtained in this study, we can conclude that the piriform plasty surgical procedure resulted in nasal airflow improvement in most of the obtained measurements.

  • [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.

  • [Title] A survey on general and temperature management of post cardiac arrest patients in large teaching and university hospitals in 14 European countries-The SPAME trial results.
  • INTRODUCTION: International guidelines recommend a bundle of care, including targeted temperature management (TTM), in post cardiac arrest survivors.
  • METHODS: This international European telephone survey was conducted to provide an overview of current clinical practice of post cardiac arrest management with a main focus on TTM.
  • We targeted large teaching and university hospitals within Europe as leading facilities and key opinion leaders in the field of post cardiac arrest care.
  • RESULTS: The return rate was 94% from 268 participating intensive care units (ICU).
  • The majority had a predefined standard operating procedure (SOP) protocol for post cardiac arrest patients.
  • Treating more than fifty patients a year was significantly associated with providing written SOPs for TTM and prognostication (p<0.01), as well as the use of a computer feedback device (p=0.03) for TTM.
  • CONCLUSION: This international European telephone survey revealed a high rate of implementation of TTM in post cardiac arrest patients in university and teaching hospitals.

  • [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.
  • 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).

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.
  • BACKGROUND: Interventional catheterization procedures may be needed for patients with severe renal failure who are dependent on dialysis.
  • To avoid the risk of fluid overload and electrolyte derangement during complex procedures in this oliguric/anuric patient population, we performed intra-procedural dialysis, either continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) or continous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD).
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of a cohort of pediatric patients, ages 0-18 years, with dialysis-dependent renal failure who received CRRT or CCPD during catheterization procedures from January 2013 to March 2016.
  • RESULTS: Eight patients underwent a total of nine interventional catheterization procedures while receiving intra-procedural dialysis.
  • Median procedure time was 337 min (95-651 min) and median contrast dose 4.2 mL kg<sup>-1</sup> (1.2-8.2 mL kg<sup>-1</sup> ).
  • Euvolemia was maintained based on pre- and post-catheterizations weights, and no significant electrolyte abnormalities occurred based on lab monitoring during and post-procedure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Patients were followed prospectively at 1 day, 2, 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks, postoperatively per protocol, and at 1 and 2 years post-protocol.
  • RESULTS: Of 76 eligible patients, 64 (84.2%) achieved more than 50% decrease in International Prostate Symptom Score at 24 weeks (95% confidence interval: 74.0-91.6%), clearing the pre-fixed non-inferiority efficacy level to transurethral resection of the prostate (65%).
  • Symptom scores, maximum flow rate, post-void residual urine, and prostate volume showed significant improvements at 12 and 24 weeks after the surgery.
  • Improved symptom scores, maximum flow rate, and post-void residual urine observed at 24 weeks remained virtually unchanged at 1 and 2 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Early experience of contact laser vaporization in Japan showed efficacy comparable to transurethral resection of the prostate as a surgical procedure for BPH at 24 weeks.
  • Long-term efficacy of the procedure remains uncertain.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • <b>Results</b>: The overall recurrence rates after the first urethrotomy were 32.4% and 23% in the historical and modern cohorts, respectively.
  • In many patients, the second procedure was also effective with the third procedure also feasible in selected patients.
  • For strictures with a length of 1-2 cm, a second operation is possible for the solitary low-grade bulbar strictures, given that the age is > 50 years and the etiology is not post-transurethral resection of the prostate.

  • [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.

61. Hu CT, Lei WY, Lin JS, Hung JS: Endoscopic meatus scoring scale versus sniff test to predict insertability before transnasal endoscopy: a prospective, randomized study. J Gastroenterol Hepatol; 2017 Apr 26;

  • [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.
  • Vasalgel™ is a high molecular weight polymer consisting of styrene-alt-maleic acid (SMA) dissolved in dimethyl sulfoxide being developed as a reversible male contraceptive device.
  • This study evaluates the capacity to restore sperm concentrations in ejaculates after a reversal procedure.
  • METHODS: Sodium bicarbonate was injected into the vasa deferentia after fourteen months of azoospermia following the injection of two device variations (Vasalgel 100 and Vasalgel 80).
  • RESULTS: Spermatozoa were present in all subject ejaculates after the reversal procedure.
  • Histologically, several vasa deferentia were clear of the device and contained an intact epithelial lining.
  • There was no difference between the two device variations for studied parameters.
  • Post-reversal sperm concentrations and motility returned to baseline levels during the six-month follow up.

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

  • 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.

  • [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.
  • 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).

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

  • 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.

  • [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.

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

  • [Title] Peri-Procedure Laser Scar Therapy Protocol: A Pilot Survey of Plastic Surgeons' Practices.
  • Despite widespread use of laser therapy, there are no guidelines or consensus published regarding optimal pre- and post-procedure patient management.
  • The survey consisted of 34 questions regarding pre- and post-procedure protocols related to laser scar therapy.
  • RESULTS: Forty plastic surgeons responded to the survey.
  • They also preferred the use of topical moisturizer (2.45), oral analgesics (2.29), and oral antivirals (1.97) as a part of the post-laser treatment regimen.
  • CONCLUSION: The study verified there is no consensus regarding peri-procedure laser scar therapy regimens.

  • [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.
  • [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.

Practice guidelines. Experience of more than 450 surgeries]. Urologiia; 2016 Aug;(4):63-69

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • [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.

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

96. 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.

  • [Title] Antibiotic treatment to prevent post-extraction complications: a monocentric, randomized clinical trial. Preliminary outcomes.
  • BACKGROUND: Tooth extraction is a very common procedure in oral surgery.
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate whether the antibiotic prophylaxis could be beneficial in preventing post- extraction local complications and whether the use of a probiotic could help reduce the antibiotic gastro-intestinal side effects.
  • To evaluate post-extractive complications, controls were performed at days 7, 14 and 21 after the extraction.
  • RESULTS: At T1 pain at the surgical site was present in the 48%, 30% and 71.4% of the patients belonging respectively to the antibiotic alone group, to the antibiotic+probiotic group and to the control group.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Post-extractive complications observed in each group have been mild and fast to resolve.

  • [Title] Shunting outcomes in posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus: results of a Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network prospective cohort study.
  • OBJECTIVE Previous Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (HCRN) retrospective studies have shown a 15% difference in rates of conversion to permanent shunts with the use of ventriculosubgaleal shunts (VSGSs) versus ventricular reservoirs (VRs) as temporization procedures in the treatment of hydrocephalus due to high-grade intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) of prematurity.
  • The primary goal of this prospective study was to standardize decision-making across centers to determine true procedural superiority, if any, of VSGS versus VR as a temporization procedure in high-grade IVH of prematurity.
  • Based on a priori consensus, decisions were standardized regarding the timing of initial surgical treatment, upfront shunt versus temporization procedure (VR or VSGS), and when to convert a VR or VSGS to a permanent shunt.
  • RESULTS One hundred forty-five premature infants were enrolled and met criteria for analysis.
  • Using the standardized decision rubrics, 28 infants never reached the threshold for treatment, 11 initially received permanent shunts, 4 were initially treated with endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), and 102 underwent a temporization procedure (36 with VSGSs and 66 with VRs).
  • There were statistically significant differences noted between groups in gestational age, birth weight, and bilaterality of clot burden that were controlled for in post hoc analysis.
