The Use of LiDCOplus in Fluid Resuscitation Decision-Making

Unwell patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) often need supplementary fluids to be given into the bloodstream through a drip in a vein (venous cannula), however too much fluid can be harmful. It can sometimes be difficult to tell whether or not a patient will benefit from extra fluids so they are given a "fluid challenge", whereby a small volume of fluid is given quickly into the cannula and the change in their status is noted. If the patient's condition improves, this sugg...

The secondary outcomes are comparison of the incid...

HIPEC and Systemic Chemotherapy Combined With Apatinib in Unresectable Peritoneal Metastases From Gastric Cancer

The prognosis of patients with unresectable peritoneal metastases from gastric cancer is poor. These patients may obtain survival benefit from radical gastrectomy and cytoreductive surgery (CRS). The response rates of previous conversion therapy are low. Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC) and systemic chemotherapy are effective methods of reducing peritoneal cancer index (PCI) levels. Apatinib, a novel targeted inhibitor of VEGF receptor 2 (VEGFR2), shows signi...

Familial Clustering of Vitamin D Deficiency Via Shared Environment: The Korean National Health And Nutrition Examination Survey 2008-2012

Vitamin D deficiency is a modifiable risk factor for poor bone health. Familial correlation of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration (25(OH)D) was reported in twin- or family-based studies, mostly from Caucasian parent-offspring pairs. However, data on the familial association of 25(OH)D in extended family structure and the relative contribution of genetic and shared environmental factors on serum 25(OH)D level are limited in Asian populations. In this study, we aimed to asse...

Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy for Refractory Ventricular Tachycardia

Single arm, phase Ib/2a dose escalation study with an expansion cohort to determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) for stereotactic ablative radiotherapy of targets in the cardiac myocardium and to make a preliminary assessment of the efficacy of the treatment. The dose escalation will be guided by Time-to-Event Continual Reassessment Method (TITE-CRM) to ensure more patients will be spared dose limiting toxicities and more patients will be entered on the dose level that will...

Deferred Versus Fresh Embryo Transfers

Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) enhances the efficacy of ART (Assisted reproductive technology) by permitting multiple-oocyte yields, but also alters endometrial receptivity (ER) by an advancement of endometrial development which contributes to diminished pregnancy chances. Previous reports suggest that pregnancy rates are increased following deferred frozen embryo transfers. In addition as compared to fresh embryo transfers, frozen embryo transfers seem to be associated w...

PERsonal ContExtual Precision healTh

The exponential growth of physiological, behavioral and environmental data generated through consumer mobile health (mHealth) devices and Internet of Things (IoT) technology provide unprecedented sources of personalized and contextual health information. If linked to clinical health data from the Electronic Health Record (EHR), these data can provide dynamic and individualized views of patient health states and trajectories that can greatly inform clinical care and health-relat...

Prospective Multicenter Evaluation of the MycoGenie Kit for the Diagnosis of Invasive Aspergillosis

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performances of the real-time PCR ADEMTECH kit of DNA extraction and detection of Aspergillus fumigatus in serum samples in patients at high-risk for invasive aspergillosis (IA).

TACE for HCC by TANDEM and Idarubicin

DcBeads and lipiodol-transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) using doxorubicin result in about 50% objective response rate at 6 months (Precision V study, Lammer et al. CVIR 2010) We previously demonstrated that idarubicin was the most effective drug on 3 HCC cell lines (Boulin et al., Anticancer drugs 2009). We tested idarubicin-loaded beads in a phase I trial (Boulin et al., Aliment Pharmacol Therapy 2012) and more recently in a prospective mu...

Cardiac Output Measurement by TEE

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has become a standard monitoring tool during cardiac surgery. It allows continuous accurate assessment of heart structures and function without interfering with the surgery and the anesthetics. The imaging of cardiac structures is used to direct optimal surgical intervention and assess surgical results. Cardiac output (CO) is the result of stroke volume (SV) multiplied by the heart rate. Measurement of cardiac output (CO) is used to quant...
