Summary of "Surgical Decompression versus Conservative Treatment in Patients with Malignant Infarction of Middle Cerebral Artery: Direct Comparison of Death-related Complications."

Surgical decompression and conservative treatment are routinely used in the treatment of patients with malignant infarction of middle cerebral artery (MIMCA). However, efficacy and safety were controversial. The purpose of the present study was to systematically compare the clinical outcomes between surgical decompression and conservative treatment in patients with MIMCA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic approaches that are limited, gradual, or well-established as opposed to radical methods.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.

The treatment of patients without the use of allogeneic BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS or blood products.

Facilities designed to serve patients who require surgical treatment exceeding the capabilities of usual physician's office yet not of such proportion as to require hospitalization.
