Metallic Stent Expansion Rate at Day One Predicts Stent Patency in Patients with Gastric Outlet Obstruction.

Related Articles Metallic Stent Expansion Rate at Day One Predicts Stent Patency in Patients with Gastric Outlet Obstruction. Dig Dis Sci. 2017 May;62(5):1286-1294 Authors: Ye BW, Chou CK, Hsieh YC, Li CP, Chao Y, Hou MC, Lin HC, Lee KC Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Self-expandable metallic stent insertion has been a mainstream treatment for relieving the obstructive symptoms of malignant gastric outlet obstruction (MGOO), a late-stage complication of gastrointestinal malignancies. This study aims to investigate the predictive value of stent expansion rates in clinical outcomes in patients with MGOO. METHODS: Eighty-seven patients with inoperable MGOO receiving metallic stents were reviewed…

Telemedicine and Palliative Care: an Increasing Role in Supportive Oncology.

Related Articles Telemedicine and Palliative Care: an Increasing Role in Supportive Oncology. Curr Oncol Rep. 2017 Jun;19(6):37 Authors: Worster B, Swartz K Abstract With the emergence of telemedicine as a routine form of care in various venues, the opportunities to use technology to care for the most vulnerable, most ill cancer patients are extremely appealing. Increasingly, evidence supports early integration of palliative care with standard oncologic care, supported by recent NCCN guidelines to increase and improve access to palliative care. This review looks at the use of telemedicine to expand access to palliative care as well as provide better care…

Int J Cancer. 2016 Nov 01;139(9):2082-94 Authors: ‘t Lam-Boer J, Van der Geest LG, Verhoef C, Elferink ME, Koopman M, de Wilt JH Abstract As the value of palliative primary tumor resection in stage IV colorectal cancer (CRC) is still under debate, the purpose of this population-based study was to investigate if palliative primary tumor resection as the initial treatment after diagnosis was associated with improved overall survival. All patients with…

Physician-Driven Variation in Nonrecommended Services Among Older Adults Diagnosed With Cancer.

Related Articles Physician-Driven Variation in Nonrecommended Services Among Older Adults Diagnosed With Cancer. JAMA Intern Med. 2016 Oct 01;176(10):1541-1548 Authors: Lipitz-Snyderman A, Sima CS, Atoria CL, Elkin EB, Anderson C, Blinder V, Tsai CJ, Panageas KS, Bach PB Abstract Importance: Interventions to address overuse of health care services may help reduce costs and improve care. Understanding physician-level variation and behavior patterns can inform such interventions. Objective: To assess patterns of physician ordering of services that tend to be overused in the treatment of patients with cancer. We hypothesized that physicians exhibit consistent behavior. Design, Setting, and Participants: Retrospective study of…
