Validation of non-invasive central blood pressure devices: ARTERY Society task force consensus statement on protocol standardization
AbstractThe burden of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and diabetes in Asia is projected to increase. Asia also has the highest incidence and prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the world. Therefore, most Asian patients with PAD might have diabetic PAD or ESRD-related PAD. Given these pandemic conditions, critical limb ischemia (CLI) with diabetes or ESRD, the most advanced and challenging subset of PAD, is an emerging public health issue in Asian countries. Given that diabetic and ESRD-related CLI have complex pathophysiology that involve arterial insufficiency, bacterial infection, neuropathy, and foot deformity, a coordinated approach that involves endovascular therapy and wound care is vital. Recently, there is increasing interaction among cardiologists, vascular surgeons, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and plastic surgeons beyond specialty and country boundaries in Asia. This article is intended to share practical Asian multidisciplinary consensus statement on the ...

Despite numerous guidelines on the management of anaemia in surgical patients, there is no pragmatic guidance for the diagnosis and management of anaemia and iron deficiency in the postoperative period. A number of experienced researchers and clinicians took part in a two-day expert workshop and developed the following consensus statement. After presentation of our own research data and local policies and procedures, appropriate relevant literature was reviewed and discussed. We developed a series of best-practice and evidence-based statements to advise on patient care with respect to anaemia and iron deficiency in the postoperative period. These statements include: a diagnostic approach to iron deficiency and anaemia in surgical patients; identification of patients appropriate for treatment; and advice on practical management and follow-up that is easy to implement. Available data allow the fulfilment of the requirements of Pillar 1 of Patient Blood Management. We urge national and ...

A consensus statement is a comprehensive analysis by a panel of experts (i.e., consensus panel) of a scientific or medical issue related to diabetes. A consensus statement is developed immediately after a consensus conference at which presentations are made on the issue under review. The statement represents the panels collective analysis, evaluation, and opinion based, in part, on the conference proceedings. The need for a consensus statement arises when clinicians or scientists desire guidance on a subject for which there is a relative deficiency of comprehensive evidence that might otherwise allow for a more definitive statement to be made.. Consensus statements are published in American Diabetes Association journals and other scientific/medical journals, as appropriate. Once written by the panel, a consensus statement is not subject to subsequent review or approval and does not represent official association opinion. Listed below are recent consensus statements.. Postprandial Blood Glucose ...

Objectives: The aim of the present publication was to report on the EAO Workshop group-4 discussions and consensus statements on the five reviews previously prepared. These reviews provided the scientific evidence on the effect of crown-to-implant ratio, on reconstructions with cantilevers in fully and partially edentulous patients, on biological and technical complications of tilted in comparison with straight implants, and on the effects of osseointegrated implants functioning in a residual dentition. Material and Methods: The group discussed, evaluated, corrected where deemed appropriate, and made recommendations to the authors regarding the following five reviews submitted: (a) Is there an effect of crown-to-implant ratio on implant treatment outcomes?; (b) Implant-supported cantilevered fixed dental rehabilitations in fully edentulous patients; (c) and in partially edentulous patients; (d) Biological and technical complications of tilted implants in comparison with straight implants ...
The National Consensus Statement: Essential elements for safe and high-quality end-of-life care (the Consensus Statement) was endorsed by Australian Health Ministers in May 2015.. Clinicians, health service executives and managers, policy-makers, educators and training providers can use the principles and ten essential elements of the Consensus Statement as a guide to improving the safety and quality of end-of-life care.. The consensus statement was developed in partnership with health consumers and carers, experts in the field, representatives from public and private hospitals and health services, professional colleges, state and territory health departments, and other government health agencies. Please contact the Commission if you would like more details on the consultation process.. Preliminary scoping work undertaken prior to developing the consensus statement is summarised in Safety and Quality of End-of-Life Care in Acute Hospitals: A Background Paper. This paper presents a précis of the ...
Though recently bolstered by the results of the PIONEER AF-PCI trial, the evidence base on how to manage antithrombotic therapy in patients with A-fib undergoing PCI remains limited and clinical uncertainty abounds. Now, an updated North American consensus document aims to provide some guidance to clinicians wondering what to do with this hard-to-treat population.. Since the last iteration of the document was published in 2011, new evidence regarding the management of antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies in patients requiring both has emerged in the form of the WOEST and ISAR-TRIPLE trials. PIONEER AF-PCI provides even more information but was released too recently-just 2 weeks ago at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions-to be incorporated into the new consensus document, which was published online November 1, 2016, ahead of print in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions and discussed during a presentation at TCT 2016.. Clinicians have little to go on when deciding how to ...
Most functional test procedures are based on closed skill tasks (eg, single or triple hop, T drill, figure 8 runs), but sport requires open skills in addition to closed skills. Open skills have a reactive element to execute the motor task, usually in addition to decision-making, often in a fatigued state. Therefore, relying on closed skill tasks alone in determining readiness to RTS is not optimal. Gradual and sequential introduction of sport-specific training can be used as functional tests that include an element of protected reactive decision-making (ideally context specific).19-21 Any battery of tests assessing the athletes readiness to RTS should consider both open and closed skills, although in some clinical contexts this may be difficult because of factors including time, space and resources. If this is the case, assessment of closed skills in conjunction with other impairment-based and functional parameters gives the clinician and the athlete a minimum level of information for RTS ...

For the present, TNF blockade should be reserved for patients with RA whose symptoms and signs are resistant to disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) treatment. It is generally agreed that all patients with active disease should be treated with DMARDs, as such treatment ameliorates symptoms and slows progression of structural damage.2 However, long term efficacy of DMARDs is limited and toxicity accumulates.3 Currently, two TNF-blocking agents, etanercept and infliximab, have received regulatory authority approval for the treatment of RA. Both compounds, alone or in combination with methotrexate, have proved to be successful in significantly reducing inflammatory activity and increasing the quality of life.4-8 In addition, infliximab in combination with methotrexate has been shown to arrest radiographic progression over one year in up to 50% of patients,9 while etanercept has been shown to retard radiographic progression significantly in DMARD-naive patients.10 Nevertheless, in early RA, ...

There is no consensus on the pathologic conditions or severity implied by the term hippocampal sclerosis (HS). In this study, a panel of experienced neuropathologists evaluated inter-rater agreement for pathologic diagnoses in the hippocampus and proposes consensus recommendations on the use of the term HS. In a group of 251 cases of HS selected from a large autopsy cohort (1,388; 18%), a coordinating group identified 5 patterns of degenerative or vascular pathology. Four independent neuropathologists assessed a single set of hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections following descriptive definitions to classify the appearances and assign the diagnosis of HS, if appropriate. Diagnostic agreement (range, 36%-70%) was highest for vascular lesions. Subsequent joint review of all cases highlighted the need to identify neurodegenerative lesions using immunohistochemistry. Initial agreement in assigning the diagnosis of HS varied from 0% to 86%. After a joint review, the group recommended that the ...

Stamatakis and colleagues from University College present comprehensive data about overweight and obesity trends from 1974 to 2003 in English children. The data are disturbing, but not surprising. They mimic information from many other countries. For example, the rates of obesity for boys aged 5-7 years increased from 1.0% in 1974 to 5.2% in 2002-03. For obesity, there was a five to six fold increase for all groups (boys and girls aged 5-7 and 8-10 years), and a near doubling in the prevalence of overweight children (18.5% to 27.1%). Sadly, the rate of change was substantially greater between 2000-01 and 2002-03 than between 1974 and 2000. In a companion perspective, Rudolf, Hochberg, and Speiser describe the conclusions of a recent International Consensus Statement on childhood obesity. The statement addresses definition, preventive strategies, screening, assessment, and treatment. The authors discuss the implications of this statement for the UK.. A recent brouhaha occurred in the US with ...

Since the 2001 update of the American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) consensus statement on secondary prevention,1 important evidence from clinical trials has emerged that further supports and broadens the merits of aggressive risk-reduction therapies for patients with established coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease, including peripheral arterial disease, atherosclerotic aortic disease, and carotid artery disease. This growing body of evidence confirms that aggressive comprehensive risk factor management improves survival, reduces recurrent events and the need for interventional procedures, and improves quality of life for these patients.. Compelling evidence from recent clinical trials and revised practice guidelines provided the impetus for this update of the 2001 recommendations with evidence-based results (Table 1⇓). Classification of Recommendations and Level of Evidence are expressed in ACC/AHA format, as detailed in Tables 2 and 3⇓. ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There are no widely accepted criteria for the definition of hematopoietic stem cell transplant -associated microangiopathy (TAM). An International Working Group was formed to develop a consensus formulation of criteria for diagnosing clinically significant TAM. DESIGN AND METHODS: The participants proposed a list of candidate criteria, selected those considered necessary, and ranked those considered optional to identify a core set of criteria. Three obligatory criteria and four optional criteria that ranked highest formed a core set. In an appropriateness panel process, the participants scored the diagnosis of 16 patient profiles as appropriate or not appropriate for TAM. Using the experts ratings on the patient profiles as a gold standard, the sensitivity and specificity of 24 candidate definitions of the disorder developed from the core set of criteria were evaluated. A nominal group technique was used to facilitate consensus formation. The definition of TAM with ...
I am not aware of any robust epidemiology studies investigating the possible effects of GBH exposures on endocrine-related diseases such as cancer, IQ loss, thyroid hormone perturbations, and organ changes. As stated in the international scientists consensus statement on glyphosate and its formulations, there are large gaps in our knowledge about such effects and more studies need to be carried out. Of course the absence of such published research is not a sign that GBHs do not cause endocrine effects. We have the technology and the scientists to do such work - but the latter apparently lack financial support and/or are worried about industry criticism and intimidation if the results show that GBHs should be banned.. ...

Lively debate ensued regarding the merits and otherwise of these techniques. The need to be innovative and to review what could be done better was a common theme. There was consensus that all clinical trials should also be testing the various biomarkers currently available. There was acute awareness that over the next five years there could well be a therapy available for some types of ALS/MND and it will be vital to ensure people have access as early as possible in the disease process. For some people with the familial form a reliable and objective biomarker could pick up disease progression before the person experiences any symptoms ...

May 5, 2011 (Updated August 1, 2011) - Genetic testing is increasingly important in determining potential cardiac conditions in patients and is used in clinical settings more than ever before. To ensure that physicians have up-to-date knowledge of the evolving role of genetic testing for sudden death predisposing, genetic heart diseases in cardiology, which can be life-saving for some patients, the Heart Rhythm Society and the European Heart Rhythm Association have prepared HRS/EHRA Expert Consensus Statement on the State of Genetic Testing for the Channelopathies and Cardiomyopathies. The consensus statement was released at Heart Rhythm 2011, the Heart Rhythm Societys 32nd Annual Scientific Sessions.
We have read with interest the consensus document on the use of the polypill1 and the editorial by González-Juanatey et al.2 The authors should be congratulated for their initiative in producing a document that helps to increase our knowledge of this therapy and, moreover, defines the situations in which its use can be beneficial. The European Society of Cardiology indicates that reducing the frequency of administration is the most effective way to improve treatment adherence, and it reportedly could reduce cardiovascular events by 75%. However, in our opinion, this document does not deal with an aspect that we consider of vital importance in secondary prevention. Both the consensus document and the editorial underline the need to control hypertension and cholesterol, stressing high-risk patients, but make no mention of patients with coronary stents. We feel that they should include some comment on this subject, especially concerning drug-eluting stents, therapeutic devices used in most ...

There is a need for a clear definition of exacerbations used in clinical trials in patients with bronchiectasis. An expert conference was convened to develop a consensus definition of an exacerbation for use in clinical research.. A systematic review of exacerbation definitions used in clinical trials from January 2000 until December 2015 and involving adults with bronchiectasis was conducted. A Delphi process followed by a round-table meeting involving bronchiectasis experts was organised to reach a consensus definition. These experts came from Europe (representing the European Multicentre Bronchiectasis Research Collaboration), North America (representing the US Bronchiectasis Research Registry/COPD Foundation), Australasia and South Africa.. The definition was unanimously approved by the working group as: a person with bronchiectasis with a deterioration in three or more of the following key symptoms for at least 48 h: cough; sputum volume and/or consistency; sputum purulence; breathlessness ...
In a review of research papers published in the period 1966 to 2005, Pluim et al1 showed that reported incidences of tennis injuries ranged over two orders of magnitude (0.04 to 3 injuries/1000 player-hours). Although some of this variation can be accounted for by the different sample populations used in the studies, the authors stated that the main reason for the differences was more likely to be due to the variation in injury definitions and protocols employed in the studies. Consensus statements for cricket,2 football3 and rugby union4 have previously outlined the benefits associated with developing and implementing consistent definitions, data-collection procedures and methods of reporting results in injury surveillance studies. Although these consensus statements were specifically developed for team sports, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) demonstrated that the principles were also relevant to individual sports.5 6 ...
While many studies have reported that providing parenteral nutrition (PN) can change nutritional outcomes, there are limited data that demonstrate that PN influences clinically-important end points in critically-ill patients. The purpose of the present paper is to systematically review and critically appraise the literature to examine the relationship between PN and morbidity and mortality in the critically-ill patient. Studies comparing enteral nutrition (EN) with PN and studies comparing PN with no PN were reviewed. The results suggest that EN is associated with reduced infectious complications in some critically-ill subgroups. PN, on the other hand, is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in critically-ill patients. When nutritional support is indicated, EN should be used preferentially over PN. Further studies are needed to define the optimal timing and composition of PN in patients not tolerating sufficient EN. Strategies to optimize EN delivery and minimize PN utilization in ...

The Delphi method is widely used in education as a technique to lead individual expert opinions to group consensus [22]. Although criticised within the literature for its lack of scientific merit [23], the Delphi method continues to be widely used as a valuable tool to establish guidelines, standards, policy documents and for predicting trends [24, 25]. Typically, the Delphi process comprises of a series of three rounds to 1) present the information and allow respondents the flexibility to elaborate on the content and make suggestions; 2) feed results back and present more specific information and 3) feed results back and give the respondent the opportunity to comment on why their opinion remains outside the consensus.. To apply the Delphi technique to the aims and objectives of creating standards for training content in postgraduate respiratory physiotherapy, three broad elements were considered in the design and presentation of this process:. 1. Nomination of the expert panel and number of ...

Background:Women with autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs) find it difficult to get information and support with family planning, pregnancy, and early parenting. A systematic approach to prioritising research is required to accelerate development and evaluation of interventions to meet the complex needs of this population. Methods:A Nominal Group Technique (NGT) exercise was carried out with lay and professional stakeholders (n=29). Stakeholders were prepared for debate through presentation of available evidence. Stakeholders completed three tasks to develop, individually rank, and reach consensus on research priorities: Task 1 - mapping challenges and services using visual timelines; Task 2 - identifying research topics; Task 3 - individually ranking research topics in priority order. Results of the ranking exercise were fed back to the group for comment. Results:The main themes emerging from Task 1 were the need for provision of information, multi-disciplinary care, and social and peer ...
Background/objectives: This paper is part of the international consensus guidelines on chronic pancreatitis, presenting for interventional endoscopy. Methods: An international working group with experts on interventional endoscopy evaluated 26 statements generated from evidence on 9 clinically relevant questions. The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation approach was used to evaluate the level of evidence. To determine the level of agreement, a nine-point Likert scale was used for voting on the statements. Results: Strong consensus was obtained for 15 statements relating to nine questions including the recommendation that endoscopic intervention should be offered to patients with persistent severe pain but not to those without pain. Endoscopic decompression of the pancreatic duct could be used for immediate pain relief, and then offered surgery if this fails or needs repeated endoscopy. Endoscopic drainage is preferred for portal-splenic vein thrombosis and ...
WASHINGTON, D.C., and DALLAS (March 17, 2014) - The increasing number of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) being performed at low-volume centers without on-site cardiac surgery backup has driven the need for new safety and quality protocols, according to an expert consensus document released today and written by a committee representing the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) and the American Heart Association (AHA). The document outlines steps hospitals can take to provide the safest possible environment for PCI when the facility does not provide cardiac surgery as a backup should complications occur.

October 15, 2012 -- The European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR) has published its first update on CT colonography (CTC) guidelines since 2007. Its working group on CTC has endorsed 86 statements, reaching near-complete agreement on 71 of the 86 items relating to critical practice areas affecting CTC.. Agreement was most consistent in the areas of colon distension, scan parameters, use of intravenous contrast agents, patient preparation, and the role of computer-aided detection (CAD) and lesion measurement. Less than unanimous accord was seen in the use of spasmolytics, decubitus positioning and the number of CT data acquisitions, fecal tagging, 2D versus 3D reading, and reporting.. Over the last five years, expansion of the CT colonography literature has continued and several important studies, including multicenter studies, have been published, wrote Dr. Emanuele Neri and colleagues from six EU countries on behalf of the ESGAR CTC working group. These new data ...

August 28, 2013 - Experts have found that radiation dosage can have serious complications for patients with cancer. Cancer patients who receive chest radiation should be evaluated for heart disease before beginning radiation, and every five to 10 years afterward, according to the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and the European Assn. of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). This expert consensus statement on the use of imaging to detect radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) will be published in the September issue of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE). The writing group was co-chaired by Vuyisile Nkomo, M.D., an echocardiographer from the renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.. When asked about the need for this expert consensus statement, Nkomo said, In the past, patients received high doses of radiation to the chest to treat breast cancer or lymphoma or esophageal cancer, but without adequate shielding of the ...

The Delphi process, which was carried out over a period of nine months consisted of a pilot round, two written rounds and a final face-to-face meeting. Sixty infectious disease experts who were national experts in the field of infectious diseases who working at senior levels nationally and internationally, and represented their country on the Advisory Forum of the European Centre for Disease Control, Stockholm (ECDC) were approached. Of the 60, 47 accepted the invitation-written consent was obtained from them. Thirty-eight experts (from 22 countries) participated in the 1st written round and 28 experts (from 19 countries) in the 2nd written round; and 11 newly recruited experts with similar expertise as the participants from the written rounds (as five panellists invited from the written rounds were not able to participate ) from 9 countries participated in the face-to-face meeting. A possible explanation for this is that as national experts, they were extremely busy, and also the panelists were ...

Governmental and private organizations often develop recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various disorders. These recommendations regarding appropriate clinical decisions are usually made by a group of experts after they assess the available evidence. Recommendations may be published as consensus statements developed at a conference or as clinical practice guidelines (sometimes called practice parameters) developed over time. In either case, publication of the recommendations should identify the sponsor and the participating experts, explain how the participants were selected, describe the evidence that supports the recommendations, and explain the process for achieving consensus in reaching the conclusions.

The Trauma Hemostasis and Oxygenation Research (THOR) Network has developed a consensus statement on the role of permissive hypotension in remote damage control resuscitation (RDCR). A summary of the evidence on permissive hypotension follows the THOR Network position on the topic. In RDCR, the burden of time in the care of the patients suffering from noncompressible hemorrhage affects outcomes. Despite the lack of published evidence, and based on clinical experience and expertise, it is the THOR Networks opinion that the increase in prehospital time leads to an increased burden of shock, which poses a greater risk to the patient than the risk of rebleeding due to slightly increased blood pressure, especially when blood products are available as part of prehospital resuscitation.The THOR Networks consensus statement is, In a casualty with life-threatening hemorrhage, shock should be reversed as soon as possible using a blood-based HR fluid. Whole blood is preferred to blood components. As a part of
