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)

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, ...

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 ...

New research in the USA shows that Jehovahs Witnesses who refuse blood transfusions recover from heart surgery faster and with fewer complications than those who have transfusions.. Patients who are Jehovahs Witnesses had better survival rates, shorter hospital stays, fewer additional operations for bleeding and spent fewer days in the intensive care unit than those who received blood trans-fusions during surgery, a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows.. Jehovahs Witnesses undergo extensive blood conservation before surgery, including red blood-cell boosting erythropoietin drugs, iron and B-complex vitamins to guard against anaemia. The practice offered a "unique natural experiment" for scientists to study the short and long-term effects of the blood management strategy and may point to ways to reduce need for transfusions, researchers said.. The study included 322 Jehovahs Witness patients and 87,453 other patients who underwent heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic from 1983 to ...
Dr. Osamu Muramoto, MD - AJWRB Medical Adviser. In 2001, Dr. Muramoto used a study by Kitchens CS: Are transfusions overrated? Surgical outcome of Jehovahs Witnesses. It was published in the February 1993 issue of The American Journal of Medicine on pages 117-119. The study was based on 1404 "bloodless" surgeries performed on Jehovahs Witnesses, and showed that 1.4% of these patients died to a lack of blood as either a primary or contributing cause of their death. Simply stated, this means that every time a JW had "bloodless surgery" their chance of death was 1.4% greater due to refusing blood.In an abundance of caution, Dr. Muramoto elected to round down this figure to 1% to allow for some who may have died anyway, so stated another way he determined that for every one hundred "bloodless" operations on Jehovahs Witnesses, one death could be attributed to blood refusal.. At that time the American Association of Blood Banks reported that approximately 4 million patients received blood ...
Dr. Osamu Muramoto, MD - AJWRB Medical Adviser. In 2001, Dr. Muramoto used a study by Kitchens CS: Are transfusions overrated? Surgical outcome of Jehovahs Witnesses. It was published in the February 1993 issue of The American Journal of Medicine on pages 117-119. The study was based on 1404 "bloodless" surgeries performed on Jehovahs Witnesses, and showed that 1.4% of these patients died to a lack of blood as either a primary or contributing cause of their death.

The article by Sniecinski et al. (1) on the treatment of two Jehovahs Witnesses with coagulopathy presents a laudable approach toward improved communication with patients who may offer a rather unique medical challenge. Three aspects of this paper merit comment.. First, the paper highlights how far we have come in the past few decades in the treatment of Jehovahs Witnesses. Notice, for example, that the postoperative hematocrit in these two patients were 23% and 20% respectively, and that both patients had "good outcomes." Actually, this is not unusual in the reports on patients who are Jehovahs Witnesses. Yet, it was not that long ago that some physicians generally applied the "10/30" rule as a transfusion trigger. We have learned much about alternatives for treating anemia and now coagulopathy, as this paper shows.. Second, the authors commendably capture the issue here that the decision on whether to receive these processed blood fractions was up to the two patients. This is not, though, ...

2020-02-11 - The parents of a child who are Jehovahs Witnesses have locked up their baby as a way of preventing the child from getting medication that would have resulted in the baby receiving blood transfusion.

Abstract:. Preterm twin sisters (monozygotic) were born at gestational age 27 weeks and 5 days with birth weights of 935 and 735 g. They were admitted to our neonatal intensive care unit for a period of 1 month. Their parents were Jehovahs Witnesses and refused blood transfusion for their preterm daughters. Subcutaneous erythropoietin and intravenous iron were given as a prophylactic to avoid anaemia..

SAN DIEGO -- Authorities are searching for a San Diego man considered to be one of the most wanted fugitives in the U.S., 10News reported.. Frederick McLean is wanted on multiple counts of child sexual abuse that spanned a 20-year period.. According to investigators, McLean used his position as a Jehovahs Witness to lure young girls.. Family members confronted McLean about the allegations in 2004. He reportedly confessed, but before he could be arrested McLean vanished.. 10News learned that the Jehovahs Witnesses settled with the victims.. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals Service office.. This Jehovahs Witnesses child predator is NOW the MOST WANTED PEDOPHILE IN THE USA!.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Thermo-sensitive assembly of the biomaterial REP reduces hematoma volume following collagenase-induced intracerebral hemorrhage in rats. AU - Park, Joohyun. AU - Kim, Jong Youl. AU - Choi, Seong Kyoon. AU - Kim, Jae Young. AU - Kim, Jae Hwan. AU - Jeon, Won Bae. AU - Lee, Jong Eun. PY - 2017/8. Y1 - 2017/8. N2 - Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) frequently results in severe disabilities and high mortality. RGD-containing elastin-like polypeptide (REP), a modified elastin-like polypeptide (ELP), is a thermally responsive biopolymer. REP has high affinity for cells and is known to show non-immunotoxicity, -cytotoxicity, and -inflammatory responses. Here we found that administration of REP in the acute phase of the ICH rat model reduced the hematoma volume, decreased the number of activated microglia, attenuated the expression of von Willebrand Factor (vWF), and prevented the leakage of immunoglobulin G (IgG) into the cerebral parenchyma without any occlusion of intact microvessels. ...
APM Terminals Bahrain, operators of Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP), has recently made significant advances in Safety performance and information technology systems, including the successful completion of a Load Collision Prevention System (LCPS) pilot project scheduled to be implemented throughout the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network..

All this time we had not yet made direct eye contact. He turned to go and then stopped. He straightened his spine upright as if a bolt of lightening had just flashed up it and turned to lock eyes with me. My mouth dropped open as I saw the beam of light piercing from his forehead and the rays surrounding his crown blinding me yet remaining visible. The air smelled sweet and my skull was heady and spinning. I heard his heart beat in my chest and felt his swallow in my throat. My skin shivered with a warm tingle and the music of an old Celt love song filled my mind. The blue-green-golden glowing was four feet all around him and it ebbed with his breath. I felt lost in time and traveled through starlit mists in moments. Everything was a remembered dream. Everything was forgotten in the same second. Past life personalities were washing over me like waves. There was a funnel of blue lasers between his eyes and mine. I could see the same pink graphing enveloping my skin pulsating with gold blood.

Accurately quantifying surgical blood loss can be critical as a clinical trial outcome, and understanding estimated blood loss is important to patient care. In addition to visual estimates, anthropometric and laboratory data can be used to estimate surgical blood loss. In this infographic, we review recent work that utilized an existing data set to compare directly measured surgical blood loss to 3 previously described methods of estimating surgical blood loss and one newly derived approach.1 Hct indicates hematocrit; EBV, estimated blood volume; Hcti, initial hematocrit; Hctf, final hematocrit. ...

INEOS has today announced plans to invest £60 million to expand its Grangemouth site. It has awarded a contract to build an additional furnace on its KG ethylene plant to Selas-Linde GmbH, Germany.. This significant investment affirms the Companys commitment to UK manufacturing at a time when it is in decline across many industrial regions across the country. The addition of a tenth furnace, will improve efficiency of the plant and increase its production capacity, to ensure the business can continue meet growing demand for its products. John McNally, CEO of INEOS O&P UK says: "Our plans to invest in the UK with the further expansion of our plant at Grangemouth, has been made possible because we now have access to the raw materials that we need. The successful completion in 2016 of our project to bring to Grangemouth plentiful supplies of competitive US shale gas ethane over a long-term agreement, has breathed new life into the plant.".

Today, more than 100 Jehovahs Witnesses in wool coats and soggy boots gathered silently outside the courtroom doors. Many said they were prepared to wait as long as it takes for the judge to reach a resolution, even weeks.. We cherish our truth, said Lena Sijanova, 27, who joined the Jehovahs Witnesses with her mother, and they are trying to take it away. But you cannot forbid peoples right to their faith because that right comes only from God.. According to the complaint filed by a Moscow district prosecutor, the Jehovahs Witnesses have violated the 1997 law by preaching religious discrimination, breaking up families, withholding medical treatment -- all in the name of their one true religion. After an exhaustive textual analysis of literature disseminated by the Witnesses door-to-door proselytizers, the prosecutors concluded that overseers in Russia and abroad not only control the spiritual environment of the congregation, but also subject the manner of life, thinking, ...
Harry Kellar, 52, of Cutler, Ohio, father of four, coach of his sons junior high football team, and machine maintenance planner at Kraton Polymers, felt fine. His older sons high school football team was hosting an ice cream social at the firehouse, and Kellar stopped by the blood pressure booth for a quick check.. A handful of doctors appointments and referrals later, Kellar found out that an artery in his heart was 100 percent blocked. He needed a coronary artery bypass. Kellar had watched his fathers long recovery from traditional bypass surgery, in which the breastbone is split and the ribcage separated in order to access the heart. He wanted to avoid that experience if at all possible.. Fortunately, just two hours away, the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute offers minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass. With the aid of a surgical robot, the entire procedure can be performed through a few small incisions between the ribs on the left side.. "Most cardiac surgery is done through a ...

Beginning in the 1930s, shortly after the Supreme Court had "incorporated" the First Amendment into the due process clause (thereby making it an enforceable constraint not only on the federal government ["Congress shall make no law . . ."] but on State and municipal governments as well) the Jehovahs Witnesses went on a campaign to attack, in court, restrictions on their ability to proselytize door-to-door and to give voice to unpopular views. During one particular 8 year period (1938 to 1946) they brought no fewer than 23 separate First Amendment actions to the Supreme Court (prompting Justice Stone to quip that they "ought to have an endowment in view of the aid they give in solving the legal problems of civil liberties"). They won some spectacularly important victories - West Virginia Board of Ed. v Barnette (1943) (children cannot be forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance or salute the flag), Chaplinsky v New Hampshire (19420 (establishing the "fighting words" doctrine, and overturning ...

The limited number of patients with identified Hughes-Stovin syndrome has precluded the initiation of controlled studies of the management of patients with pulmonary arterial aneurysms [3]. Corticosteroids, alone or in combination with an immunosuppressant, are generally considered first-line therapy [4]. Surgical resection has been the traditional treatment of choice when the risk of lethal hemoptysis necessitates more definitive therapy. Total pneumonectomy or lobectomy has been performed with some successful results [5].. The high morbidity associated with surgery and the frequent bilaterality and multifocality of the pulmonary artery aneurysms make transcatheter embolization an attractive alternative to surgery in most cases. To our knowledge, few patients with Hughes-Stovin syndrome have been treated by performing embolization of a pulmonary arterial aneurysm with the use of several agents, including steel coils, Ethibloc, and isobutyl cyanoacrylate, an epoxy [4, 6, 7].. This is the first ...
