An analytic-decision model was built to estimate the cost-effectiveness of using ferric carboxymaltose for pre-operative haemoglobin optimisation in patients with iron deficiency anaemia undergoing primary knee arthroplasty.

Name: Blood transfusion = Trasfusione del sangue
While previous studies have shown higher union rates and a quicker return to work with operative treatment of substantially displaced clavicle fractures, there is disagreement whether operative treatm...
Preoperative anaemia is a strong predictor of blood transfusion requirements and must be assessed for appropriate optimization before elective surgery. Iron therapy is a transfusion-sparing approach e...
The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap may be associated with less long-term donor-site morbidity compared with free muscle-sparing transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap (MS-TRAM)...
Laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS) is resource-intensive disease. The cost-effectiveness of LTS treatments has not been adequately explored. We aimed to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis comparing ope...
Iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) accounts for majority of anemia. Although iron replacement therapy is effective, in Japan, conventional iron formulations have disadvantages such as gastrointestinal side ...
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of postoperative intravenous ferric carboxymaltose in patients with anemia undergoing Simultaneous Bilateral Total ...
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare Injectafer® (ferric carboxymaltose) with an iron supplement to learn which may be more effective in improving red blood cell counts ...
Several studies using new forms of intravenous iron showed that it is effective in treating perioperative anemia in orthopedic and digestive surgery. Effects of ferric carboxymaltose have ...
This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of single dose preoperative ferric carboxymaltose in the prevention of postoperative infections and blood transfusions in patients scheduled fo...
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of preoperative intravenous ferric carboxymaltose in patients with anemia undergoing Simultaneous Bilateral Total k...
A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
The reaction of potassium ferrocyanide with ferric iron to yield a dark blue precipitate at the sites of the ferric iron. Used to determine ferric iron in tissues, particularly in the diagnosis of disorders of iron metabolism.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
