Different stent graft types to repair thoracic aortic aneurysms | Cochrane

An aneurysm is a localised widening of an artery. The thoracic aorta is the largest artery in the body, delivering blood from the heart to the arms and head. If an aneurysm occurs in the thoracic aorta it can expand and may rupture, resulting in death. Open surgery can treat these aneurysms, which involves opening the chest and placing an artificial graft over the widening. A new alternative treatment involves an artificial stent graft, delivered through an arterial blood vessel in the groin, fixed over the widening. This technique is called endovascular repair. There are many different types of stent grafts available. They differ in how they are inserted into/access the blood vessel, how they attach to the walls of the artery and the design and materials they are made from.

Different stent grafts for repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms | Cochrane

An aneurysm is a localised widening of an artery. The abdominal aorta is the largest artery in the body, delivering blood from the heart to the organs in the abdomen and the legs.

Open surgery can treat these aneurysms; this involves opening the abdomen and placing an artificial graft over the widening. A new alternative treatment involves an artifical stent graft, delivered through an arterial blood vessel in the groin, fixed over the widening. This technique is called endovascular repair.

Critical Care

Saline-based and hydroxyethyl starch solutions are associated with increased risk of renal dysfunction. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that balanced solutions and a limited volume of hydroxyethyl starch solution (renal protective fluid management [RPF] strategy) would decrease the incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) and improve clinical outcomes in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (OPCAB).

High-dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant compared to conventional therapy for children with high-risk neuroblastoma | Cochrane

Despite the development of new treatment options, the prognosis of high-risk neuroblastoma patients still remains poor; in more than half of patients the disease returns. Stem cell rescue replaces blood-forming stem cells that were destroyed by high-dose chemotherapy in order to recover the bone marrow. It is also known as myeloablative therapy and might improve the survival of these patients. A well-informed decision on the use of myeloablative therapy in the treatment of children with high-risk neuroblastoma should be based on high quality evidence of effectiveness for treating tumours and side effects.
