Extent and Determinants of Terminally Ill Cancer Patients' Concordance between Preferred and Received Life-Sustaining Treatment States: An Advance Care Planning Randomized Trial in Taiwan.

J Pain Symptom Manage 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Division of Hematology-Oncology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at Linkou, Taiwan; Department of Nursing, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Purpose: To examine the effectiveness of an advance care planning (ACP) intervention in facilitating concordance between cancer patients' preferred and received life-sustaining treatment (LST) states and to explore modifiable factors facilitating or impeding such concordance.

Methods: Terminal cancer patients (N=460) were randomly assigned 1:1 to the experimental and control arms of a randomized clinical trial, with 430 deceased participants comprising the final sample. States of preferred LSTs (cardiopulmonary resuscitation, intensive care unit care, chest compression, intubation with mechanical ventilation, intravenous nutrition, and nasogastric tube feeding) and LSTs received in the last month were examined by hidden Markov modeling.

Management of Dysphagia in Patients with Parkinson's Disease and Related Disorders.

Intern Med 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Neurology, Kochi Medical School, Kochi University, Japan.

Various methods of rehabilitation for dysphagia have been suggested through the experience of treating stroke patients. Although most of these patients recover their swallowing function in a short period, dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson-related disorder (PRD) degenerates with disease progression. Muscle rigidity and bradykinesia are recognized as causes of swallowing dysfunction, and it is difficult to easily apply the strategies for stroke to the rehabilitation of dysphagia in PD patients.

Cecal bascule as a cause of postoperative nausea and abdominal pain.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Jun 27;14(6):697-699. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA.

Cecal bascule is a unique form of large bowel volvulus in which the cecum folds anterior to the ascending colon and generates a flap valve which impairs cecal emptying and results in cecal dilation [1]. Presenting symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, distension, and constipation. We report a case of a 74-year-old male who developed abdominal pain and nausea after a coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Read More

Postextubation Dysphagia in Pediatric Populations: Incidence, Risk Factors, and Outcomes.

J Pediatr 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Surgery, Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery; Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Electronic address:

Objective: To assess incidence, risk factors for, and impact on outcomes of postextubation dysphagia. We hypothesized that the incidence of postextubation dysphagia in pediatric patients would approximate or exceed that in adults, that age and duration of intubation would increase odds for postextubation dysphagia, and that the presence of postextubation dysphagia would negatively impact patient outcomes.

Study Design: We performed a retrospective, observational cohort study of patients aged 0-16 years admitted between 2011 and 2017. Read More

Ginekol Pol 2019 ;90(3):167-172

Department of Gynecology, Obstetrics and Gynecologic Oncology, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Cancer patients are at risk of developing malnutrition from underlying disease as well as from cancer treatment. Moreover, weight loss is considered as a predictive factor for disease progression and shorter survival time. As many as 10-20% of patients with cancer die from the results of malnutrition, instead of from the cancer itself. Read More

Benzocaine-Induced Methemoglobinemia in a Postoperative Bariatric Patient following Esophagogastroduodenoscopy.

Case Rep Crit Care 2019 24;2019:1571423. Epub 2019 Feb 24.

Department of Surgery, Harlem Hospital Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Methemoglobinemia is a rare complication in clinical practice. It is most commonly seen in patients undergoing endoscopic procedures, including EGDs, laryngoscopies, bronchoscopies, and nasogastric tube insertions. This is thought to be a disease seen almost exclusively in patients with genetic predispositions to develop it; the increasing use of topical anesthetics during procedures has made methemoglobinemia a disease entity that every clinical provider should be able to recognize and treat.

JPEN J Parenter Enteral Nutr 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Pediatrics, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA.

Background: Gastrostomy tube (G-tube) placement is a long-term alternative to oral or nasogastric feeding for premature infants who cannot safely feed orally or need supplemental nutrition for adequate growth.

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2019 Mar 11:e27702. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Department of Gastroenterology and Clinical Nutrition, The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

Children with cancer are at risk of malnutrition, which can impair critical childhood processes of growth and development and contribute to poor health outcomes. Enteral nutrition can effectively ameliorate malnutrition or weight loss in children with cancer; however, published nutrition support algorithms contain minimal specific information on gastrostomy tube use, and current literature is limited. Decisions about gastrostomy tube insertion in children with cancer can be challenging. Read More

Cerebral oxygenation associated with INSURE versus LISA procedures in surfactant-deficient newborn piglet RDS model.

Pediatr Pulmonol 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Cruces University Hospital, Barakaldo, Bizkaia, Spain.

Background: Nasal continuous-positive airway pressure (nCPAP) with the INSURE (INtubation-SURfactant-Extubation) or LISA (Less-Invasive Surfactant Administration) procedures are increasingly being chosen as the initial treatment for neonates with surfactant deficiency. Our objective was to compare the effects on cerebral oxygenation of different methods for surfactant administration: INSURE and LISA, using a nasogastric tube (NT) or a LISAcath® catheter, in spontaneously breathing SF-deficient newborn piglets.

Methods: Eighteen newborn piglets with SF-deficient lung injury produced by repetitive bronchoalveolar lavages were randomly assigned to INSURE, LISA-NT, or LISAcath® groups. Read More

Zhen Ci Yan Jiu 2019 Jan;44(1):43-6

Intensive Care Unit, Changxing County Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Huzhou 313000, Zhejiang Province, China.

Objective: To observe the clinical therapeutic effect of acupuncture of Huatuo Jiaji (EX-B2) in the treatment of gastrointestinal dysfunction in sepsis patients, aiming at providing new clinical approach and evidence for improving septic gastrointestinal activity.

Methods: A total of 40 patients with septic gastrointestinal dysfunction who met our inclusive criteria were randomly divided into control group and treatment group (=20 cases in each). Patients in the control group received routine treatment of nasogastric mosapride citrate (5 mg/time, three times a day) and tifidobacterium triple viable capsules (420 mg, twice a day), intravenous infusion of omeprazole (40 mg, twice a day), rational dose of antibiotics, maintenance treatment of functions of the heart, lung, brain, kidney and other important organs and water electrolyte balance, as well as symptomatic treatment.

CT-Guided Percutaneous Gastrostomy without Preliminary Placement of a Nasogastric Tube.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Interventional and Diagnostic Imaging, Cancer Center Antoine Lacassagne, Nice 06189, France. Electronic address:

Percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy (PRG) requires preliminary gastric inflation through a nasogastric tube (NGT) to safely perform gastric puncture. However, in case of pharyngeal or esophageal obstruction, NGT placement may be impossible even with a hydrophilic angiography catheter and wire. This brief report describes percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided gastrostomy with a 2-stick approach without nasogastric insufflation in 13 patients. Read More
