Acupuncture for Post-Operative Pain Control for Patients Undergoing Gynecological Surgery

This study investigates the role of acupuncture in controlling post-operative pain in patients who have undergone gynecological surgery.

Effectiveness of Acupuncture in Post-Mastectomy Patients With Tissue Expanders

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in shoulder tightness, chest tightness, and general pain related to post-mastectomy reconstructive surgery with tissue expansion in...

Acupuncture for Post-Thoracotomy Pain

Pain after surgery for lung cancer (thoracotomy) may persist for years and require long-term analgesic use. Prior studies have shown that acupuncture reduces pain and medication use in the...

Acupuncture in the Management of Post Operative Symptoms in Breast Cancer Patients

This study is for the woman who will have axillary (armpit) surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment. The purpose of this project is to evaluate if acupuncture is helpful to contr...

Comparison of Effectiveness of Ranolazine Plus Metoprolol Combination vs. FlecainidE pluS Metoprolol Combination in ATrial Fibrillation Recurrences FOllowing PhaRmacological or Electrical CardioverSion of AtRial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice with a prevalence reaching 5% in patients older than 65 years and an incidence that increases progressively with...

Preventing Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation after Non-Cardiac Surgery: a Meta-Analysis.

Although post-operative atrial fibrillation is common after non-cardiac surgery, there is a paucity of data regarding prophylaxis. We sought to determine if pharmacologic prophylaxis reduces the incid...

Cost-Effectiveness of Colchicine treatment on Post-Operative Atrial fibrillation (POAF) events in patients of major cardiac surgery.

Post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF) occurs in 20-50% of patients amid post-operative stay after Cardiac Surgery. We intend to determine whether colchicine therapy in patients undergoing cardiac ...

Predictors of post-operative atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass grafting.

Post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia occurring after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Arrhythmia leads to prolonged hospitalization and may have impac...

Adding left atrial appendage closure to open heart surgery provides protection from ischemic brain injury six years after surgery independently of atrial fibrillation history: the LAACS randomized study.

Open heart surgery is associated with high occurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF), subsequently increasing the risk of post-operative ischemic stroke. Concomitant with open heart surgery, a cardiac ab...

Long-Term Outcomes of Post-Operative Atrial Fibrillation: Guilty as Charged.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

A type of massage in which finger pressure on specific body sites is used to promote healing, relieve fatigue, etc. Although the anatomical locations are the same as the ACUPUNCTURE POINTS used in ACUPUNCTURE THERAPY (hence acu-), no needle or other acupuncture technique is employed in acupressure. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed). Shiatsu is a modern outgrowth that focuses more on prevention than healing.

A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
