RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...
CONCLUSIONS: Based on our experience, IIA embolization does cause buttock claudication of a certain degree. However, the most of them experienced mild discomfort rather than such symptoms severely affect their quality of life. Considering the risks of general anesthesia and complications of surgical procedures, IIA reconstruction along with EVAR may not be necessary. PMID: 32214071 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Lee SJ, Sung TY Abstract Emergence agitation (EA), which is also referred to as emergence delirium, can lead to clinically significant consequences. The mechanism of EA remains unclear. Proposed contributors to EA include age, male sex, type of surgery, emergency operation, use of inhalational anesthetics with low blood-gas partition coefficients, long duration of surgery, anticholinergics, premedication with benzodiazepines, voiding urgency, postoperative pain, and the presence of invasive devices. If pre- or intraoperative objective monitoring could predict the occurrence of agitation during emergence, t...
CONCLUSION: When compared to general anesthesia with systemic opioids, PECs block was associated with significantly better perioperative pain control. There are currently insufficient data on the complication and failure rate of PECs block in clinical practice. PMID: 32211121 [PubMed]
Conclusion: Addition of intercostal block to epidural analgesia does not confer any benefit in terms of post-operative pain, fentanyl requirements or volume achieved on spirometry.
