Slow-release oral morphine for opioid maintenance treatment: a systematic review.
Br J Clin Pharmacol
PUBLISHED: 01-27-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
This review article summarizes the results of all available clinical trials considering the use of slow-release oral morphine (SROM) for opioid maintenance treatment (OMT). All studies published up to October 2010 and assessing SROM for OMT in adult patients are included. Three independent reviewers assessed the selected articles using a standardized checklist. Study design, study length and number of subjects included were recorded. Data about retention rate (proportion of participants remaining under maintenance treatment at the end of the study), quality of life, withdrawal symptoms, craving, additional drug consumption, driving capacity and adverse events were collected. We identified 13 articles corresponding to nine clinical trials considering the use of SROM for OMT. Among them, only one was a randomized trial and one was a controlled not randomized trial. All other studies were uncontrolled. Retention rates were good (from 80.6 to 95%) with SROM maintenance, but similar retention rates were obtained with methadone. Most of the studies showed that quality of life, withdrawal symptoms, craving and additional drug consumption improved with SROM. However, there was no comparison with other maintenance drugs. As most of the studies assessing SROM efficacy were uncontrolled, there is no definite evidence that SROM is an effective alternative to methadone for OMT.

Impact of meteorological conditions on the occurrence of acute type A aortic dissections.

Hide Abstract
The impact of meteorological conditions on the occurrence of various cardiovascular events has been reported. The aim of this work was to study the correlations between weather conditions and the occurrence of type A acute aortic dissections (AADs). Between 1997 and 2007, all the medical records of patients who underwent surgery for type A AADs in Toulouse University Hospital (France) were reviewed. The clinical data were confronted with the meteorological data provided by the French national meteorological office (MétéoFrance) over the same period. Two hundred and six patients with spontaneous type A AADs underwent surgery during this period. The incidence of aortic dissection was higher in winter time than in summer (P=0.018). The days with aortic dissections were colder than those without aortic dissections (P=0.017). Statistical analysis highlighted a decrease of atmospheric temperature during the three days preceding the upset of the symptoms (P=0.0009). This work demonstrates a correlation between spontaneous type A AADs and low atmospheric temperature.

Evaluation of partial and total splenectomy in children with sickle cell disease using an Internet-based registry.
Pediatr Blood Cancer
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Clinical outcomes of children with sickle cell disease (SCD) who undergo total or partial splenectomy (PS) are poorly defined. The purpose of this retrospective study was to initiate an Internet-based registry to facilitate analysis of clinical outcomes for these children. We hypothesized that both surgical procedures would be well tolerated and would eliminate risk of splenic sequestration.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
