Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Cancer Care.

Related Articles Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Cancer Care. Cancer Treat Res. 2016;168:377-91 Authors: Chang A, Abbott DE Abstract With the increasing complexity of modern medical therapies, it is becoming imperative to recognize the marginal cost and gains of increasingly sophisticated (and expensive) interventions. By understanding the incremental cost of a given intervention, investigators must help answer questions about healthcare resource utilization that are not answered by randomized clinical trials. The continued funding of biomedical research and pharmaceuticals will require more objective study of the return on investment for any given treatment modality, and cost-effectiveness analyses will be instrumental in providing solutions…

Palliation of malignant gastroduodenal obstruction: fluoroscopic metallic stent placement with different approaches.

Related Articles Palliation of malignant gastroduodenal obstruction: fluoroscopic metallic stent placement with different approaches. Diagn Interv Radiol. 2017 May-Jun;23(3):211-216 Authors: Bulut E, Çiftçi T, Akhan O, Akıncı D Abstract PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of fluoroscopy-guided gastroduodenal metallic stent placement with different approaches in malignant obstruction. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed 53 patients (33 men and 20 women; mean age, 58.7±15 years) who underwent stent placement between February 2004 and April 2014. All patients had unresectable tumors. The most common causes of obstruction were gastric (38%) and pancreatic cancers (36%). Uncovered self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) were placed…

Improving comfort around dying in elderly people: a cluster randomised controlled trial.

Related Articles Improving comfort around dying in elderly people: a cluster randomised controlled trial. Lancet. 2017 07 08;390(10090):125-134 Authors: Beernaert K, Smets T, Cohen J, Verhofstede R, Costantini M, Eecloo K, Van Den Noortgate N, Deliens L Abstract BACKGROUND: Over 50% of elderly people die in acute hospital settings, where the quality of end-of-life care is often suboptimum. We aimed to assess the effectiveness of the Care Programme for the Last Days of Life (CAREFuL) at improving comfort and quality of care in the dying phase in elderly people. METHODS: We did a cluster randomised controlled trial in acute geriatric…

A decade of day-case endoscopically guided stent placement in malignant oesophagogastric strictures.

Related Articles A decade of day-case endoscopically guided stent placement in malignant oesophagogastric strictures. Surg Endosc. 2017 May;31(5):2280-2286 Authors: Almond LM, Patel K, Keast L, Hodson J, Nijjar R, Wilson PG, Richardson M, Singhal R Abstract BACKGROUND: Self-expanding metal stents (SEMSs) are the palliative treatment of choice for rapid symptomatic relief in patients with malignant dysphagia. Increasingly endoscopically guided insertion is performed as a day case and without the need for fluoroscopic guidance. This consecutive case series reports 11-year experience of endoscopically guided SEMS insertion in a large UK specialist oesophagogastric unit. METHODS: Patients undergoing stent insertion for malignant dysphagia…
