Removal of Intrathecal Catheters Used in Drug Delivery Systems.

08:00 EDT 9th August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Removal of Intrathecal Catheters Used in Drug Delivery Systems."

Implanted intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS) are increasingly used in the treatment of spasticity and in patients with refractory pain. Literature discussing complications associated with intrathecal pump placement is widely available. However, reports of complications following the removal of chronically placed catheters are scarce. We reviewed our series of patients who had surgery to remove the intrathecal catheter.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systems for the delivery of drugs to target sites of pharmacological actions. Technologies employed include those concerning drug preparation, route of administration, site targeting, metabolism, and toxicity.

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.

Drug formulations or delivery systems intended to discourage the abuse of CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES. These may include physical barriers to prevent chewing or crushing the drug; chemical barriers that prevent extraction of psychoactive ingredients; agonist-antagonist combinations to reduce euphoria associated with abuse; aversion, where controlled substances are combined with others that will produce an unpleasant effect if the patient manipulates the dosage form or exceeds the recommended dose; delivery systems that are resistant to abuse such as implants; or combinations of these methods.

SMOKING vapors produced from ELECTRONIC NICOTINE DELIVERY SYSTEMS.

Synthesized magnetic particles under 100 nanometers possessing many biomedical applications including DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and CONTRAST AGENTS. The particles are usually coated with a variety of polymeric compounds.
