*  Revised Cardiac Risk Index
... The 'Revised Cardiac Risk Index RCRI ' is a tool used to estimate a patient's risk of perioperative cardiac complications. The RCRI and similar clinical prediction tools are derived by looking for an association between preoperative variables e.g., patient's age, type of surgery, comorbid diagnoses, or laboratory data and the risk for cardiac complications in a cohort of surgical patients the "derivation cohort". Variables that have independent predictive value in a logistic regression analysis are incorporated into the risk index. Ideally, the accuracy and validity of the risk index is then tested in a separate cohort the "validation cohort". In 1977 Goldman, et al., developed the first cardiac risk index, which included nine variables associated with an increased risk of perioperative cardiac complications. published a cardiac risk index derived from 2893 patients and validated in 1422 patients aged ≥ 50 undergoing major noncardiac surgery, which became known as the Revised Cardiac Risk Index RCRI. 2 L...

It is placed under the skin by making two little incisions and the catheter that is attached to the septum gets into one of the large veins into the upper right part of the chest. This is a very useful appliance because it is much more comfortable for the patient than being injected in the hand every single time. It is also safer and more comfortable for nurses and doctors too. However, even if this is a high-quality appliance there is likelihood of some complications to occur. Some of them would occur more often and others would be extremely rare. But doctors should always be alert and should always be as careful as possible in trying to avoid all of these complications. One possible complication is bacterial infection. If the instruments and the appliance itself are not sterile enough it is possible for some bacteria to get into it and infect the patient. This is extremely dangerous because it would ...

Late radiation morbidity following randomization to preoperative versus postoperative radiotherapy in extremity soft tissue sarcoma Reviewer: John Wilson, MD Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania Last Modified: March 26, 2006. Late subcutaneous fibrosis and joint stiffness were assessed using the joint EORTC/RTOG late toxicity scoring criteria. Authors' Conclusions The authors report that these results suggest that postop RT causes more late toxicity, but they admit the toxicity is not significantly different from that seen with preop RT. However, they do point out that the sample size was fairly underpowered to show a difference in late toxicity, with powers of 40% for fibrosis, 12% for joint stiffness, and 22% for extremity edema. They conclude by saying that preop RT may have less late toxicity, but this must be balanced against...

To Initiate A Phase II Clinical Study Of BTI-320 In U.S. OTCQB: BTHE "Boston Therapeutics" or "the Company", an innovative developer of compounds that address diabetes using complex carbohydrate chemistry, has received Institutional Review Board IRB approval to initiate a clinical study of BTI-320 previously named PAZ320 in the United States. The U.S.-based trial is intended to mirror the Company's study of BTI-320 currently enrolling patients in France. trial plans to enroll 24 patients with Type 2 diabetes who are currently being treated with metformin. Patients' blood glucose will be monitored and their postprandial after-meal blood glucose levels will be measured following a test meal.

Patient Presentation A 15-month-old caucasian male came to clinic for his health supervision visit. He was developing and growing normally and his parents had no concerns. He was taking a mixed diet appropriate for his age with ~20 ounces of whole milk daily. The pertinent physical exam showed a healthy appearing male with growth parameters at the 75% and a normal examination. His screening laboratory evaluation showed a hemoglobin of 10.6 mg/dL. The new intern wasn’t sure how to manage the diagnosis of anemia and asked about how much iron to prescribe. His medical record review noted a normal neonatal screening test and normal complete blood count at birth done because of a maternal fever. After discussion with her attending physician, they decided that this presumably was iron deficiency anemia, and they would treat with supplemental iron for 1...

A combination of 2 direct-acting antivirals, MK-5172 and MK-8742, with or without ribavirin, led to early post-treatment sustained response rates above 90% for genotype 1 hepatitis C patients, including people with cirrhosis or HIV/HCV coinfection, according to a series of presentations last week at the 49th EASL International Liver Congress in London. In Part B, 30 genotype 1a patients were assigned to triple therapy for 8 weeks and 31 were assigned to ribavirin-free dual therapy for 12 weeks. Among participants treated for 12 weeks, 94% in the dual therapy arm and 98% in the triple therapy arm reached SVR4-SVR24. Looking at the treatment-naive cirrhotic group, with 4 to 8 weeks post-treatment follow-up, SVR4-SVR8 rates were 90% in the 12-week triple therapy arm with 1 viral breakthrough during treatment and 2 relapses, and 97% in the 12-week dual therapy arm and in both the 18-week arms. 97% in...

Local relapse-free survival also trended high for patients in the RT+CN arm 74% versus 63%, p = 0.11. Disease-free survival and relapse-free survival were higher in the RT+CN arm but did not reach significance, possibly due to the study being underpowered. This study demonstrated an overall survival benefit without a significant benefit in local control for patients receiving carbogen and nicotinamide.

NEW YORK Control of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol among patients with diabetes has improved markedly, but more room for improvement remains, according to a new study. 15 issue of the journal Diabetes Care, found that from 1988 to 2010, the number of people with diabetes able to meet or exceed measures of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol which together indicate good diabetes management rose from 2% to 19%. More than half of people met each individual goal in 2010. However, we see a lot of room for improvement for everyone, but particularly for younger people and some minority groups. According to 2007-2010 data, 53% of Americans with diabetes met A1C goals, compared with 43% in 1988-1994; 51% met blood pressure goals, compared with 33% in 1988-1994; and 56% met cholesterol goals, compared with 10% in 1988-1994. Nevertheless, blood glucose control was found to be worse among Mexican-Americans and young...

... Large Text Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts," My wife has undergone a lumpectomy for a 0.8cm nodule, sentinel lymph nodes were clear. Is there as clear a course of therapy in these cases as there is for the er/pr positive patients. The first and most important treatment is surgical resection lumpectomy of the breast cancer which has been completed. However, the risk of local recurrence after a lumpectomy is quite high and radiation therapy to the breast is certainly indicated. A consultation with a radiation oncologist to discuss this therapy should be arranged for all patients after a lumpectomy. Most of the existing data assessing the benefit of chemotherapy is in patients with primary tumors larger than one centimeter. Of course, each patient's situation is assessed individually, but most women with a primary tumor that small do not gain a tremendous benefit from systemic chemotherap...

The 4-hole Turret Press has auto-indexing. If you use that, the turret rotates 1/4 turn with each stroke of the handle, so you install a 4-die set and with four strokes of the handle you have loaded ONE round. For each pull of the handle, there is only one operation being performed, and three dies are doing nothing. On a progressive, something happens at each station on every pull. You can also remove the auto-index and run the Turret Press as a single stage -- the turret doesn't advance when you pull the handle. I'm another fan of the Lee Turret P...

In NSABP-B31, paclitaxel was given at 175 mg/m 2 every 3 weeks for four cycles; in NCCTG-N9831, paclitaxel was given at 80 mg/m 2 every week for 12 cycles. The study arm for the joint analysis, therefore, was AC followed by paclitaxel plus trastuzumab, and the control arm was AC followed by paclitaxel. Unprecedented Results Findings of the first interim intent-to-treat analysis of 395 DFS events were dramatic: Use of trastuzumab reduced the overall risk of local recurrence at 3 years by 52% hazard ratio = 0.48, 2P = 3 ´ 10 -12, with 261 recurrences in women on chemotherapy alone vs 134 in those on trastuzumab.

*  Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors
... 'Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors' 'RECIST' is a set of published rules that define when tumors in cancer patients improve "respond", stay the same "stabilize", or worsen "progress" during treatment. The criteria were published in February 2000 by an international collaboration including the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer EORTC, National Cancer Institute of the United States, and the National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group. Today, the majority of clinical trials evaluating cancer treatments for objective response in solid tumors use RECIST. These criteria were developed and published in February 2000, and subsequently updated in 2009. They are specifically NOT meant to determine whether patients have improved or not, as these are tumor-centric, not patient centric criteria. This distinction must be made by both the treating physicians and the cancer patients themselves. It is not intended that these RECIST guidelines play a role in that decision m...

... Surgery. Cancer Center Cancer Treatment: Surgery For Cancer Treatment How is surgery used in cancer treatment. It provides the best chance to stop many types of cancer, and it also plays a part in diagnosing, staging, and supporting cancer treatment. Having surgery for cancer is different for every patient, depending on the type of surgery, the type of cancer, and the patient's health. Surgeons use curative surgery when the cancerous tumor is localized to a specific area of the body. However, other types of cancer treatments, such as radiation, may be used before or after the surgery. Preventive surgery is used to remove tissue that does not contain cancerous cells, but may develop into a malignant tumor. Other types of cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation, may be used after debulking surgery is performed. What are the risks and potential side effects of surgery for cancer treatment. This is one of the reasons why learning about your cancer and cancer treatment is important. Cryosurgery i...

*  .. Avastin Label Changes Reignites Debate: Is OS or PFS the Better Regulatory End
FDA s success in removing Avastin s metastatic breast cancer MBC indication has sparked a longstanding debate in drug development circles: What is the best proof that a drug works and should be approved. A panel discussion held November 29 in Cambridge, MA, debated whether the primary endpoint for regulatory sanction should remain overall survival OS or if it should change to progression-free survival PFS. CDER pointed to new studies, one of which showed a difference in overall survival for patients with MBC of less than two months from 24.8 months to 26.5 months. FDA countered that the primary endpoint should instead be overall survival, while PFS should continue as a surrogate endpoint of clinical benefit. During the discussion held on November 29, called Surrogates or Survival: A Discussion on Endpoints in Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials, moderator Anne Quinn Young recalled how cancer treatment has changed over the past 10 years. Both PFS and OS are appropriate endpoints to define clinical benefits for pa...

Expert Speakers Forum: Dr. So: How do you determine appropriate treatment. Questions. Glossary. 14. How do you determine which treatment should be used, and for how long. When I try to look at it objectively, the first thing you have to do is weigh the side effects - interferon has more side effects, and lamivudine and adefovir are very patient-friendly. There are three prognostic markers for treatment with interferon: viral load those with a lower load usually respond better, ALTs those with higher levels usually respond better, and duration of the infection those with shorter duration have a better response, usually. Most Asian patients do not meet these prognostic indicators for treatment with Interferon. Once again, I look at hepatitis from an infectious disease point of view - it is a chronic infection, and might need chronic suppression long-term just like HIV or diabetes. 13. Should the e-antigen be used to determine the success/end point of treatment. 15. Do you recommend treating patients with a high...

(1/1709) Effects of soybean oil emulsion and eicosapentaenoic acid on stress response and immune function after a severely stressful operation.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of soybean oil emulsion and oral or enteral administration of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) on stress response, cytokine production, protein metabolism, and immune function after surgery for esophageal cancer. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: It has been reported that safflower oil, rich in n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (n-6 PUFA), affects the survival rate of septic animals and decreases the immune function. It has also been reported that the administration of fish oil, in contrast, reduces these stress responses and stress-induced immunosuppression. In humans, the effects of soybean oil emulsion and the administration of EPA on stress response and immune function after surgery have not been established. METHODS: Patients who underwent esophagectomy with thoracotomy were divided into three groups. Seven patients were fed by total parenteral nutrition (TPN) with soybean oil emulsion, which accounted for 20% of total calories. Seven patients were given oral or enteral administration of 1.8 g/day EPA, in addition to TPN with soybean oil emulsion. Nine patients served as the control group; these patients received fat-free TPN. Serum interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein, concanavalin A (con A)- or phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation, natural killer cell activity, and stress hormones were measured. RESULTS: The postoperative level of serum IL-6 was significantly higher in the group receiving soybean oil emulsion than in the fat-free group. Oral or enteral supplementation of EPA with soybean oil emulsion significantly reduced the level of serum IL-6 compared with the patients receiving soybean oil emulsion. Con A- or PHA-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation decreased significantly on postoperative day 7 in all groups of patients. The supplementation of EPA with soybean oil emulsion significantly improved the lymphocyte proliferation and natural killer cell activity on postoperative day 21 compared with the group receiving soybean oil emulsion. CONCLUSIONS: Soybean oil emulsion amplifies, and the supplementation of EPA reduces, the stress response and stress-induced immunosuppression.  (+info)

(2/1709) Evidence of improving survival of patients with rectal cancer in france: a population based study.

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years there have been many changes in the management of rectal cancer. Their impact on the overall population is not well known. AIMS: To determine trends in management and prognosis of rectal cancer in two French regions. SUBJECTS: 1978 patients with a rectal carcinoma diagnosed between 1978 and 1993. METHODS: Time trends in treatment, stage at diagnosis, operative mortality, and survival were studied on a four year basis. A non-conditional logistic regression was performed to obtain an odds ratio for each period adjusted for the other variables. To estimate the independent effect of the period a multivariate relative survival analysis was performed. RESULTS: Over the 16 year period resection rates increased from 66.0% to 80.1%; the increase was particularly noticeable for sphincter saving procedures (+30.6% per four years, p=0.03). The percentage of patients receiving adjuvant radiotherapy increased from 24.0% to 40.0% (p=0.02). The proportion of patients with Dukes' type A cancer increased from 17. 7% to 30.6% with a corresponding decrease in those with more advanced disease. Operative mortality decreased by 31.1% per four years (p=0.03). All these improvements have resulted in a dramatic increase in relative survival (from 35.4% for the 1978-1981 period to 57.0% for the 1985-1989 period). CONCLUSIONS: Substantial advances in the management of rectal cancer have been achieved, but there is evidence that further improvements can be made in order to increase survival.  (+info)

(3/1709) Double gallbladder originating from left hepatic duct: a case report and review of literature.

BACKGROUND: Double gallbladder is a rare anomaly of the biliary tract. Double gallbladder arising from the left hepatic duct was previously reported only once in the literature. CASE REPORT: A case of symptomatic cholelithiasis in a double gallbladder, diagnosed on preoperative ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP) is reported. At laparoscopic cholangiography via the accessory gallbladder no accessory cystic duct was visualized. After conversion to open cholecystectomy, the duplicated gallbladder was found to arise directly from the left hepatic duct; it was resected and the duct repaired. CONCLUSIONS: We emphasize that a careful intraoperative cholangiographic evaluation of the accessory gallbladder is mandatory in order to prevent inadvertent injury to bile ducts, since a large variety of ductal abnormality may exist.  (+info)

(4/1709) Surgical options in the management of groin hernias.

Inguinal and femoral hernias are the most common conditions for which primary care physicians refer patients for surgical management. Hernias usually present as swelling accompanied by pain or a dragging sensation in the groin. Most hernias can be diagnosed based on the history and clinical examination, but ultrasonography may be useful in differentiating a hernia from other causes of groin swelling. Surgical repair is usually advised because of the danger of incarceration and strangulation, particularly with femoral hernias. Three major types of open repair are currently used, and laparoscopic techniques are also employed. The choice of technique depends on several factors, including the type of hernia, anesthetic considerations, cost, period of postoperative disability and the surgeon's expertise. Following initial herniorrhaphy, complication and recurrence rates are generally low. Laparoscopic techniques make it possible for patients to return to normal activities more quickly, but they are more costly than open procedures. In addition, they require general anesthesia, and the long-term hernia recurrence rate with these procedures is unknown.  (+info)

(5/1709) Comparison of Payne and Scott operations for morbid obesity.

One hundred five patients were operated upon for morbid obesity using accepted criteria for operation. Forty-five patients with the Payne operation (35 cm of jejunum anastomosed end-to-side to 10 cm of ileum) were compared with 45 patients having the Scott operation (30 cm of jejunum anatomosed end-to-end to 15 cm of ileum with the proximal cut end of ileum vented into the transverse colon). The weight loss in the first two years was similar, although the Scott procedure patients lost slightly more weight. Comparison of the two groups by a new grading system also showed little difference in the two procedures. The Scott procedure takes longer and subjects the patient to an additional anastomosis. Study of a smaller group of patients having the Scott operation with varying lengths of jejunum and ileum indicates that there should not be less than 30 cm of jejunum nor more than 15 cm of ileum left in continuity. The length of jejunum is particularly important in the production of weight loss, and accurate intraoperative measurement of intestinal length is crucial. In the postoperative period the length of functional jejunum and ileum can be determined by upper gastrointestinal barium roentgenograms.  (+info)

(6/1709) Patients' experience of surgical accidents.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the psychological impact of surgical accidents and assess the adequacy of explanations given to the patients involved. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: Subjects were selected from files held Action for Victims of Medical Accidents. PATIENTS: 154 surgical patients who had been injured by their treatment, who considered that their treatment had fallen below acceptable standards. MAIN MEASURES: Adequacy of explanations given to patients and responses to standard questionnaires assessing pain, distress, psychiatric morbidity, and psychosocial adjustment (general health questionnaire, impact of events scale, McGill pain questionnaire, and psychosocial adjustment to illness scale). RESULTS: 101 patients completed the questionnaires (69 women, 32 men; mean age 44 (median 41.5) years. Mean scores on the questionnaires indicated that these injured patients were more distressed than people who had suffered serious accidents or bereavements; their levels of pain were comparable, over a year after surgery, to untreated postoperative pain; and their psychosocial adjustment was considerably worse than in patients with serious illnesses. They were extremely unsatisfied with the explanations given about their accident, which they perceived as lacking in information, unclear, inaccurate, and given unsympathetically. Poor explanations were associated with higher levels of disturbing memories and poorer adjustment. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical accidents have a major adverse psychological impact on patients, and poor communication after the accident may increase patients' distress. IMPLICATIONS: Communication skills in dealing with such patients should be improved to ensure the clear and comprehensive explanations that they need. Many patients will also require psychological treatment to help their recovery.  (+info)

(7/1709) Measuring patient satisfaction: a test of construct validity.

OBJECTIVE: To establish the validity of two patient satisfaction questionnaires (surgery satisfaction questionnaire (SSQ) and consultation satisfaction questionnaire (CSQ)) developed for use in general practice. DESIGN: Prospective study of performance of SSQ and CSQ in patients selected for their predicted levels of satisfaction. SETTING: Avon Family Health Services Authority (FHSA); general practices in Bristol (practice A) and in Cheltenham (practice B). PATIENTS: 400 patients selected by Avon FHSA who had changed practices but not their home address and whose original practice had not changed its services (group 1); 869 randomly selected patients (221 from practice A, 648 from practice B) (group 2). MAIN MEASURES: Median difference in satisfaction scores for each questionnaire between groups 1 and 2 and between subgroups of group 2 patients according to assessed level in continuity of care (< 50%, > or = 50%) in the past 12 consultations. RESULTS: 272 (68.0%) patients in group 1 completed the SSQ and CSQ. 711 (81.2%) patients in group 2 (178/221 (80.5%) in practice A, 533/648(82.3%) in practice B) completed the SSQ and 374(88/106(83.0%), 286/335(85.4%)) completed the CSQ. Both questionnaires classified patients in groups 1 and 2 according to the construct of satisfaction; thus the difference in median scores for every component of satisfaction in each questionnaire was significant and occurred in the direction predicted by the construct. Each questionnaire also discriminated between patients grouped according to their assessed level of continuity of care. CONCLUSION: SSQ and CSQ are valid measures of satisfaction for these types of patients. IMPLICATIONS: Valid measures of patient satisfaction can be developed; untested instruments should no longer be used.  (+info)

What are different other none surgical procedures to get rid of access belly fat?


What are different other none surgical procedures to get rid of access belly fat? Laser? Shots? What are they called so i can research and find out prices.

Thank you!
----------

..Start eating right...lots of veggies and protein,,,skip all white bread and all sugar totally....and
WALK ...preferably take walks in the morning, just drink a little water and WALK...
your tummy is empty, so the body will burn fat for energy...

If you do this repeatedly YOU will get rid of  your tummy in 6 months....


Why do I get light headed when people talk about surgical procedures?


I have a couple friends who are nurses. Whenever they go into detail about surgical procedures I get real light headed and have some shortness of breathe. What is going on with me? Am I having a mini panic attack, or is it a case of Syncope?
----------

That happens to me to, or in my case I end up passing out.  Its just the thought of that stuff being done that freaks you out and grosses you out to the extent you cant take it... at least thats how it was explained to me.


how can i increase my boob size and buttocks without any surgical or medical procedures?


can you suggest exercises or any other non-surgical procedures that firms or can increase my boob and butt size?
----------

to increase the boobs and buttocks,
go to mcdonalds about once a day
until you got your boobs and butt..
then go to the gym and loose the
other fat you've gained.

that is seriously
the ONLY other way to get
boobs and a butt.


Are there any surgical procedures that can change the shape of your face?


I have a square face and I hate it! I want an oval face, so is there a surgical procedure that can give me that?
----------

There are a number of procedures available for the soft tissue in the face, tho I doubt that your health insurance would cover such procedures unless you were disfigured.

If it means operating on the bones in your face, I doubt that any reputable surgeon would do it in the absence of disease.

Surgical procedures can be painful, and there is always the risk of infection or other complications.  even some minor procedures can have a surprisingly long recovery time.  If a general anesthetic is required, there is a risk of death, albeit very small.

Maybe a visit to a hair stylist or beautician to bring out the best in your face would be a better option,


How is Animal testing improveing surgical procedures?


I'm writing an essay about animal testing and I need to write a paragraph about how animal testing is improving surgical procedures. Could anyone tell me how it is or give me a really good website?
I also need to know how its making products safer (also need to write a paragraph for this). 
Thanks!

Usually for surgical procedures they use the cadavers, but there is not substitute for live flesh and the bleeding.

Juicy counts.

Making products saving by eliminating the obvious bad effects before it is tested on humans.
