Nickel hypersensitivity following closure of atrial septal defect: A case report and review of the literature.

We present an unusual case where symptoms of headache and chest pain persisted for 3 years following the implantation of a septal occluder device for an atrial septal defect despite endothelialisation of the device. The patient was found to have nickel hypersensitivity on patch testing. Following the removal of the device the patient had complete resolution of headaches and chest pain up to 10 months post-explantation. PMID: 29380348 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The effect of parecoxib sodium on the duration and severity of acute postoperative pain after laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy has been inadequately studied. This randomized, controlled trial compared the effects of parecoxib, methylprednisolone, and placebo on the duration of acute postoperative pain after elective laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy. Ninety-four eligible patients were randomized to three groups (parecoxib sodium 40 mg [Group P], methylprednisolone 1 mg/kg [Group M], and saline [Group S]). The duration of pain during coughing (median [interquartile range]) was significantly lower in Group...

Conclusions: WTP for fluoride varnish varied dramatically between individuals. In both countries, it was difficult to predict this variance, as factors which would likely impact upon on WTP had a limited effect and were sometimes counter-intuitive. WTP values for a parent and their child were not statistically significantly different.
