Appropriate care at the end of life : insuring quality of life

Rev Med Liege. 2021 May;76(5-6):565-468.ABSTRACTProgress of medical knowledge pushed the limits of medicine. This raises major ethical issues.

Palliation by radiation is also our business !

Rev Med Liege. 2021 May;76(5-6):375-379.ABSTRACTRadiotherapy (RT), both with a curative and a palliative intent, is one of the cornerstones of oncological treatments.

Examining antidepressant use in palliative care patients by risk of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome

Intern Med J. 2021 May;51(5):793-796. doi: 10.1111/imj.15320.ABSTRACTAntidepressant drugs, which are widely used in palliative care patients for both management of psychiatric disorders and non-psychiatric symptoms, may cause a cluster of distressing symptoms on discontinuation. In dying patients, cessation of oral intake may occur either temporarily or permanently for reasons related to disease or its treatment, as well as in the days before death. We examined antidepressant use in palliative care patients by risk of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome (ADDS). Strategies for reducing the risk of ADDS, and for managing it that should occur, are discussed.PMID:34047027 | DOI:10.1111/imj.15320

Surg Clin North Am. 2021 Jun;101(3):489-497. doi: 10.1016/j.suc.2021.03.010.ABSTRACTEsophageal cancer commonly presents in advanced stage, and many patients will require palliative intervention. Endoscopic stenting remains an excellent first-line therapy; however, this should be discussed in a multidisciplinary setting, considering expectations for long-term survival.PMID:34048768 | DOI:10.1016/j.suc.2021.03.010
