Advances in the care of patients with mucinous colorectal cancer.

Related Articles Advances in the care of patients with mucinous colorectal cancer. Nat Rev Clin Oncol. 2016 Jun;13(6):361-9 Authors: Hugen N, Brown G, Glynne-Jones R, de Wilt JH, Nagtegaal ID Abstract The majority of colorectal cancers (CRCs) are classified as adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified (AC). Mucinous carcinoma (MC) is a distinct form of CRC and is found in 10-15% of patients with CRC. MC differs from AC in terms of both clinical and histopathological characteristics, and has long been associated with an inferior response to treatment compared with AC. The debate concerning the prognostic implications of MC in patients with…

Should doctors provide futile medical treatment if patients or their proxies are prepared to pay for it?

Related Articles Should doctors provide futile medical treatment if patients or their proxies are prepared to pay for it? S Afr Med J. 2017 Jan 30;107(2):108-109 Authors: McQuoid-Mason DJ Abstract Ethically and legally doctors are not obliged to provide futile treatment to patients, even if the patient or their proxies are prepared to pay for it. However, it may be justified where such treatment is harmless and has a placebo effect. In deciding about a request for futile treatment, doctors should be guided by the ethical principles of patient autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice. Guidelines are provided to assist doctors in making such…

The importance of interdisciplinary communication in the process of anticipatory prescribing.

Related Articles The importance of interdisciplinary communication in the process of anticipatory prescribing. Int J Palliat Nurs. 2017 Mar 16;23(3):129-135 Authors: Wilson E, Seymour J Abstract In the UK there has been a widespread introduction of ‘anticipatory prescribing’ in community based palliative care. This involves general practitioners (GPs) writing prescriptions in anticipation of them being needed and has been encouraged to try to minimise the risk of patients suffering uncontrolled symptoms and distress; a key reason why terminally ill patients are admitted to hospital in contradiction of most people’s preferences. This paper presents the findings from an ethnographic study of…

Impact of Norwood versus hybrid palliation on cardiac size and function in hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

Related Articles Impact of Norwood versus hybrid palliation on cardiac size and function in hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Heart. 2016 Jun 15;102(12):966-74 Authors: Grotenhuis HB, Ruijsink B, Chetan D, Dragulescu A, Friedberg MK, Kotani Y, Caldarone CA, Honjo O, Mertens LL Abstract OBJECTIVE: The hybrid approach for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) could theoretically result in better preservation of right ventricular (RV) function then the Norwood procedure. The aim of this study was to compare echocardiographic indices of RV size and function in patients after Norwood and hybrid throughout all stages of palliation. METHODS: 76 HLHS patients (42 Norwood, 34…
