Patients at higher risk for sedation-related adverse events could benefit from undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with general endotracheal anesthesia rather than monitored anesthesia, according to research published in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
Vladimir M. Kushnir wrote that although the ASGE recommends anesthesia-administered sedation to be considered in all complex endoscopic procedures, there is no current standard of care regarding the type of anesthesia and airway management during ERCP.
How well we breathed as adults depending on the amount of fat mass and lean body mass, or muscle, we have as children, according to new research published online in the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
A new study in people with major depression reports that electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) induces changes in the fibers connecting the hippocampus to brain regions involved in mood and emotion . Only patients who responded to the treatment showed these changes, and those who had the greatest changes in hippocampal pathways also showed the largest improvements in mood.
There are few reports on applying totally endoscopic surgery for repairing ventricular septal defect, especially in children. We described an 8-year-old girl, weighing 17 kg, who was diagnosed with peri-membranous VSD and patent ductus arteriosus.
Dutch researchers have identified five novel subtypes of insomnia, which may lead to more personalized treatments for insomnia. The subtypes are largely unrelated to sleep complaints but rather are differentiated by biologically based traits and life history. They are stable over time and are associated with comorbid depression, treatment responses, and findings in encephalographic event-related potentials, the investigators note.
Fight for Sight funded research published this week in Clinical Epigenetics , has identified new genes linked to the development of age-related macular degeneration , the leading cause of blindness in the UK. The research team, led by Dr. Louise Porter at the University of Liverpool, has identified genes that may represent new targets for the development of treatments. Currently, there is no available treatment for 85% of people with the common 'dry' form of the disease.
Many medical imaging techniques use fitting approaches for quantitative parameter estimation and analysis. Common examples are pharmacokinetic modeling in dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) / computed tomography (CT), apparent diffusion coefficient calculations and intravoxel incoherent motion modeling in diffusion-weighted MRI and Z-spectra analysis in chemical exchange saturation transfer MRI.
New AI could identify and help reduce one of the top causes of hospitalization for people living with dementia: urinary tract infections (UTI).
