A new diagnostic method using air perfusion radiography under DSA for gastric stump ‐pleural fistula: Report of five cases

Gastric stump ‐pleural fistula is a common complication following gastroesophageal anastomosis in patients diagnosed with gastric cancer. Mortality is high because of the severe subsequent relevant complications caused by the fistula. Here we report five cases of gastric stump‐pleural fistula diagnosed by air perfusion radiography under digital subtraction angiography (DSA). DSA air perfusion radiography provides a reliable basis for the development of clinical programmes; it is a simple method which does not involve any pain or trauma to the patient.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Huachansu (HCS) injection plus chemotherapy in the treatment of gastric cancer. METHODS: A thorough and systematic retrieval of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) concerning HCS injection for treating gastric cancer was conducted in several electronic databases from inception to May 10, 2018. The quality of the RCTs was assessed by the Cochrane risk of bias tool. And the data about objective remission rate, performance status, adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and other outcomes were extracted and analyzed by Review Manager 5.3 and Stata 13.0 softwa...

HORSHAM, PA, September 30, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved SIMPONI ARIA® (golimumab) for patients 2 years of age and older for the treatment of active pJIA and has extended the PsA indication for this same patient population. “This latest FDA approval of SIMPONI ARIA for pediatric use in active pJIA and active PsA not only brings a new option to young patients living with these diseases but also adds to the growing body of evidence for this treatment,” said Mathai Mammen, M.D., Ph.D., Glob...

Researchers here note that delivering metformin via injection rather than the usual oral administration removes unwanted side-effects and better improves cognitive function in old mice. Near all testing of metformin has used oral administration, and the effects on pace of aging and life span are, frankly, too unreliable and too small to justify the present level of interest in the drug on the part of the longevity community. Administration by injection might be a different story, but waiting on further research and confirming data would be a wiser course of action than immediate excitement. Even then, this is tinkering wit...

BOWEL cancer symptoms include weight loss, stomach pain, and feeling very tired for no obvious reason. But you could also be at risk of the disease if you notice a change to your toilet habit.

Overkill: When Modern Medicine Goes Too Far by Paul Offit M.D.I am admittedly a huge fanboy of Paul Offit, an infectious disease guru at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, one of the preeminent pediatric hospitals in the world. His latest bookOverall: When Modern Medicine Goes Too Far, is a collection of medical facts that are already known to the well-read individual, but fly in the face of wrongly-held, out-dated, commonly-believed medical concepts. The majority of the incorrect information was previously considered the standard of care, but newer and better science and studies have clearly demonstrated ...

Conclusions: Elderly patients who underwent LPD in this study had good overall outcomes after LPD that were similar to young patients. The perioperative and long-term outcomes of LPD are not worse. Rates of ICU admission and hospital stays increased in elderly patients undergoing LPD when compared with nonelderly ones. LPD can be performed on elderly patients with similar outcomes as younger patients; therefore, age itself should not be a contraindication for LPD for pancreatic cancer, but it suggests that elderly patients with comorbidities should be more stringently selected for surgery.

This study is the first to compare surgical outcomes and health economic data using nationwide administrative claims datasets for gastric cancer. Methods: The claims datasets of the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service for patients that underwent gastrectomy from May 2012 to April 2017 were analyzed. A total of 76,445 cases (LS, 42,395 and OS, 34,050) were included. Postoperative complications and medical costs were included in the analysis. Results: We analyzed 76,445 cases of gastrectomy. Analysis showed LS was associated with fewer surgical wound infections (2,114 [6.21%] vs. 1,057 [2.49%], P
