Should Jehovah's Witness patients be listed for heart transplantation? (5/11)

This best evidence topic in Cardiac Surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was: for [Jehovah's Witness patients with end-stage heart failure] can these patients undergo a [heart transplantation] without an increased rate of mortality. Altogether, 133 papers were found using the reported search strategy. Of those, 29 papers represented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. Five papers focusing on patients of the Jehovah's Witness (JW) faith who had end-stage heart failure were published. Successful heart transplantation was performed in a total of seven patients without mortality, re-exploration or blood transfusion. One patient had left ventricular reduction surgery twice and another patient had bypass surgery several years after transplantation. Other successful organ transplantations were also reported, including lung, liver, kidney and pancreas in both adult and paediatric patients of the JW faith, with comparable mortality and morbidity to non-JW patients. A publication bias is likely; nevertheless, we conclude that although there are no large studies directly focused on heart transplantation in JW patients, a multidisciplinary team approach to such surgery can make it technically feasible and without an increased mortality risk in suitable candidates. Therefore, such patients may be considered for heart transplantation under selected and favourable circumstances.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Facilitated anastomosis using a reverse thermo-sensitive polymer for temporary coronary occlusion in off-pump minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass surgery. AU - Rastan, Ardawan Julian. AU - Noack, Thilo. AU - Subramanian, Sreekumar. AU - Nacar, Alpen. AU - Holzhey, David. AU - Falk, Volkmar. AU - Mohr, Friedrich Wilhelm. PY - 2010/11. Y1 - 2010/11. N2 - To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel, reverse thermo-sensitive polymer (LeGoo™) for its ability to provide temporary coronary occlusion and hemostasis during minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass (MIDCAB) surgery. Between January 2009 and March 2009, 20 consecutive MIDCAB patients were studied. Ten patients received a conventional MIDCAB procedure using proximal vessel loops and CO2 blower (control group). The following 10 patients were operated by an otherwise identical procedure, except that intracoronary administration of LeGoo™ was used instead of vessel snares (LeGoo™ group). Left ...
TY - CONF. T1 - Surface properties of thiol-terminated thermo-sensitive polymers immobilized on gold. AU - Kakikawa, Hiroshi. AU - Inoue, Sayaka. AU - Kokubo, Hisashi. AU - Imabayashi, Shin Ichiro. AU - Watanabe, Masayoshi. PY - 2006/10/19. Y1 - 2006/10/19. N2 - Thiol-functionalized poly(ethoxyethyl glycidyl ether)s (PEEGEs) are synthesized by an anionic ring-opening polymerization and immobilized on gold substrates through Au-S bonding. The amount of adsorbed PEEGE is determined by QCM. The water contact angle (CA) on the PEEGE-modified gold substrate reversibly changes at a given temperature, which is close to the phase separation temperatures of PEEGE aqueous solutions. The change in CA is attributable to the coil-globule transition of PEEGE on the substrate. The temperature at which CA changes is higher for the polymer with a higher molecular weight, which is contrast to the molecular weight dependence of the phase-separation temperature in aqueous solution.. AB - Thiol-functionalized ...
Reflex increases in heart rate which occurred during 1-minute occlusions of the left circumflex coronary artery were studied in conscious dogs. The results indicated that occlusion produced tachycardia (latency to onset 8.5 seconds) preceded by a rise in left atrial pressure (7.2 seconds) and followed by a small fall in arterial pressure (19.5 seconds). Bilateral baroreceptor denervation indicated that the onset of the changes in heart rate could not be accounted for by subtle baroreceptor sensitivity, although the peak response was much reduced (from 34.0 beats/min to 17.5 beats/min), indicating that the magnitude of the response did depend on intact baroreceptors. Beta-receptor blockade with propranolol or cardiac sympathectomy reduced the peak response from 34.0 beats/min to 16.1 beats/min or 12.2 beats/min, respectively. Vagal blockade with atropine reduced the response to 5.3 beats/min, indicating that the remainder of the response was carried in the vagus. Responses were much reduced after ...
The effect of propranolol on the severity of myocardial necrosis following 40 minutes of temporary coronary artery occlusion was assessed in dogs. The circumflex coronary artery was occluded 1-2 cm from the aorta in open-chest dogs anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital. One group of dogs was untreated and a second group received propranolol (5.0 mg/kg, iv) 10 minutes prior to the occlusion. After 40 minutes the clamp was removed and arterial perfusion was restored. Dogs which survived this procedure were killed 2-5 days later for gross and histologic assessment of the necrosis. The relative area of necrosis (percent of fibers involved) in the posterior papillary muscle of each heart was quantified from stained histologic sections prepared from serial longitudinal slices of each posterior papillary muscle. Dogs treated with propranolol showed significantly less necrosis than did untreated controls, but the mechanism of the drugs action remains unknown. During coronary artery occlusion, ...

Das humane Hornhautendothel (HCE) ist für die Transparenz der Cornea und damit für die Sehkraft unentbehrlich. Im Laufe des Lebens, nach Hornhautverletzungen oder -krankheiten kommt es zum Verlust von HCE-Zellen. Eine zu geringe Dichte an HCE-Zellen führt zu einer irreversiblen Trübung der Hornhaut, die letztendlich nur mit einer Hornhauttransplantation (Keratoplastik) behandelt werden kann. Auch nach einer penetrierenden Keratoplastik gehen bis zu 50 % der HCE-Zellen des Transplantats zugrunde. Während der Lagerung der Spenderhornhäute führt der HCE-Zellverlust zum Ausschluss von ca. 30 % des ohnehin knappen Spendergewebes. Die Haltbarkeit der Spenderhornhäute ist außerdem von der Lagerungstemperatur abhängig. In Westeuropa werden sie bei ~ 37 °C gelagert und sind ca. vier Wochen haltbar, bei gekühlter Lagerung (~ 5 °C), wie beispielsweise in Nordamerika bevorzugt, jedoch nur zwei Wochen. Die molekularen Mechanismen, die zum HCE-Zellverlust führen, sind bisher unbekannt. Ziel der ...

On the basis of biblical statements, Jehovahs Witnesses decline the transfusion of whole blood, red cells, white cells, plasma and platelets. This Medicines Q&A discusses the use of recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO), either as epoetin alfa, epoetin beta or epoetin zeta, as a potential alternative to blood transfusion for Jehovahs Witness patients.. ...
For Jehovahs Witness patients (Witnesses) who undergo cardiac surgery, morbidity and long-term mortality are similar or superior to that of patients who receive transfusions.
judgerutherford. Dr Ron Lapin Interview: Bloodless Surgery + Jehovahs Witnesses. THIS RECORDING IS OVER 20 YEARS OLD SO IT WAS KNOW A LONG TIME AGO ABOUT BLOOD, NOW THEY KNOW JEHOVAH IS RIGHT AS HE ALWAYS IS.. Ronald Lapin (1941-1995) Was Israeli-born American surgeon, best known as a bloodless surgeon due to his willingness to perform surgeries on severely anemic Jehovahs Witness patients without the use of blood transfusions. He completed medical school in New York City and established his practice in Orange County, CA, in the 1970s, where he lived until his death.. He pioneered the use of the electric scalpel in such cases, which reduces blood loss during surgery. He promoted and taught the use of this and other techniques that make bloodless surgery successful.. Lapin became interested in bloodless surgery in the mid 1970s, while practicing his profession in Orange County, CA. He was approached by a severely anemic Jehovahs Witness in need of surgery (who, due to religious beliefs, ...
Preoperative autologous collections are most beneficial to those patients who are undergoing procedures with substantial anticipated blood loss, such as orthopedic joint replacement, vascular surgery, cardiac or thoracic surgery, and radical prostatectomy. Autologous blood is unnecessary for procedures that seldom require transfusion, such as transurethral resection of the prostate, cholecystectomy, herniorrhaphy, vaginal hysterectomy, and uncomplicated obstetric delivery [14]. A hospitals maximal surgical blood order schedule for blood cross-match can provide estimates of transfusion rates for specific procedures; the generally accepted cutoff at which transfusion is unlikely and autologous blood procurement should not be recommended is 10% [15].. Collection of units should be scheduled as far in advance of surgery as possible for liquid blood storage (up to 42 days), to allow compensatory erythropoiesis [5] to correct the induced anemia. If the erythropoietic response to autologous blood ...

In the dissertation, two mathematic models are presented for simulation of the hydrogels. One is a steady-state model for responsive behaviors of thermo-sensitive hydrogels, where a novel multiphysic steady-state model, termed the Multi-Effect-Coupling thermal-stimulus (MECtherm) model, is developed to simulate and predict the volume phase transition of the neutral and ionized thermo-sensitive hydrogels when they are immersed in bathing solution. The other is a transient model for drug release from microgels. In this model, both the drug dissolution and diffusion are taken into account through the continuous matrices of spherical microgels. Using this model, the controlled nifedipine release from chitosan spherical microgels is simulated. These developed models, consisting of linear/nonlinear partial differential equations coupled with a transcendental equation, are solved by the novel true meshless Hermite-cloud method ...
Mount Sinai Beth Israel in Manhattan, NYC, has vast expertise in bloodless surgery techniques for hip and knee replacement and orthopedic spine surgery. Many patients, because of concerns about receiving blood, or because of religious reasons, such as Jehova s Witnesses, seek a hospital that offers bloodless surgery options.
There is no standard of care of management following parotidectomies. Most practitioners however place a drain (usually a flat Davol closed suction drain/ Hemovac in the investigators institutions) in the wound bed at the end of the procedure, which is usually removed the day following the surgery, or when the drain output reaches a subjective number (depending on surgeon preference). The investigators hypothesis is that there is no difference in hematoma/bleeding or infection rate when post parotidectomy drains are removed in the recovery area on the day of the surgery prior to discharge, compared to drains that are kept in place for at least 1 day or until drainage is less than 50 cc/24 hrs. The investigators would therefore like to undergo a randomized control clinical trial to assess the rate of significant hematoma formation and infection, the need for readmission and length of admission secondary to these complications when comparing 2 groups: one where drains are removed prior to ...

Patients with lung cancer experience significant symptom burden, particularly symptoms of a respiratory nature. Such symptom burden can be distressing for patients and negatively impact their functional status and quality of life. The aim of this review is to evaluate studies of nonpharmacological and noninvasive interventions for the management of respiratory symptoms experienced by patients with lung cancer. In total, 13 studies met the inclusion criteria for this review and included 1383 participants of which 1296 were lung cancer patients. The most frequently assessed and reported symptom was breathlessness (n = 9 studies). Cough and haemoptysis were reported in one study. A variety of outcome measurement tools were used and a broad range of intervention strategies evaluated. Lack of consistency between studies impinged on the ability to combine studies. It is not possible to draw any firm conclusion as to the effectiveness of nonpharmacological interventions for the management of ...
