    Local perspective of the impact of the HIPAA privacy rule on research

    CANCER, Issue 2 2006
    M.P.H., Michael S. Wolf Ph.D.
    Abstract BACKGROUND The operational and economic impact of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was evaluated. The setting was a natural experiment which involved a single-site, clinical research study that was initiated before the enactment of HIPAA and subsequently modified to be compliant with the new policy. METHODS A formative assessment was conducted of the recruitment process to a clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of an educational strategy to inform Veterans about the National Cancer Institute/Department of Veterans Affairs cosponsored Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT). Personnel time and costs were determined based on weekly accrual for study periods before and after the implementation of HIPAA. Root cause analysis was used to assess the recruitment protocol and to identify areas for improvement. RESULTS The implementation of HIPAA resulted in a 72.9% decrease in patient accrual (7.0 patients/wk vs. 1.9 patients/wk, P < 0.001), and a threefold increase in mean personnel time spent recruiting (4.1 hrs/patient vs. 14.1 hrs/patient, P < 0.001) and mean recruitment costs ($49/patient vs. $169/patient, P < 0.001). Upon review of the modified HIPAA-compliant protocol, revisions in the recruitment procedure were adopted. The revised protocol improved weekly accrual by 73% (1.9 patients/wk vs. 7.1 patients/wk, P < 0.001) and resulted in improvements in personnel time (5.4 hrs/patient) and recruitment costs ($65/patient). CONCLUSION Enactment of HIPAA initially placed a considerable burden on research time and costs. Establishing HIPAA-compliant recruitment policies can overcome some of these obstacles, although recruitment costs and time are likely to be greater than those observed before HIPAA.

    Cuffed endotracheal tubes in children reduce sevoflurane and medical gas consumption and related costs

    ACTA ANAESTHESIOLOGICA SCANDINAVICA, Issue 7 2010
    S. ESCHERTZHUBER
    Background: This study aims to evaluate sevoflurane and anaesthetic gas consumption using uncuffed vs. cuffed endotracheal tubes (ETT) in paediatric surgical patients. Methods: Uncuffed or cuffed ETT were used in paediatric patients (newborn to 5 years) undergoing elective surgery in a randomized order. Duration of assessment, lowest possible fresh gas flow (minimal allowed FGF: 0.5 l/min) and sevoflurane concentrations used were recorded. Consumption and costs for sevoflurane and medical gases were calculated. Results: Seventy children (35 uncuffed ETT/35 cuffed ETT), aged 1.73 (0.01,4.80) years, were enrolled. No significant differences in patient characteristics, study period and sevoflurane concentrations used were found between the two groups. Lowest possible FGF was significantly lower in the cuffed ETT group [1.0 (0.5,1.0) l/min] than in the uncuffed ETT group [2.0 (0.5,4.3) l/min], P<0.001. Sevoflurane consumption per patient was 16.1 (6.4,82.8) ml in the uncuffed ETT group and 6.2 (1.1,14.9) ml in the cuffed ETT group, P=0.003. Medical gas consumption was 129 (53,552) l in the uncuffed ETT group vs. 46 (9,149) l in the cuffed ETT group, P<0.001. The total costs for sevoflurane and medical gases were 13.4 (6.0,67.3),/patient in the uncuffed ETT group and 5.2 (1.0,12.5),/patient in the cuffed ETT group, P<0.001. Conclusions: The use of cuffed ETT in children significantly reduced the costs of sevoflurane and medical gas consumption during anaesthesia. Increased costs for cuffed compared with uncuffed ETT were completely compensated by a reduction in sevoflurane and medical gas consumption. [source]


    Radiofrequency ablation of hepatic tumors: Lessons learned from 3000 procedures

    JOURNAL OF GASTROENTEROLOGY AND HEPATOLOGY, Issue 10 2008
    Hyunchul Rhim
    Abstract Radiofrequency ablation has been accepted as the most popular local ablative therapy for unresectable malignant hepatic tumors. For 9 years from April 1999, we performed 3000 radiofrequency ablation procedures for hepatic tumors in our institution. Our results on the safety (mortality, 0.15%/patient) and therapeutic efficacy (5-year survival rate, 58%) are similar to those of previous studies reported, supporting the growing evidence of a clear survival benefit, excellent results for local tumor control and improved quality of life. The most important lesson learned from our 3000 procedures is that the best planning, safe ablation and complete ablation are key factors for patient outcome. Furthermore, multimodality treatment is the best strategy for recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma encountered after any kind of first-line treatment. [source]


    Immunohistochemical Model to Predict Risk for Coronary Artery Disease and Failure in Heart Transplant Patients

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 3 2001
    Carlos A. Labarrere
    Transplant coronary artery disease is the leading cause of long-term morbidity and mortality in cardiac transplantation. We developed a model for early identification of patients who subsequently develop coronary artery disease and graft failure. Serial biopsies obtained from 141 cardiac allografts (5.5 ▒ 0.1 biopsies/patient) during the first 3 months post-transplant were evaluated immunohistochemically for deposition of myocardial fibrin, depletion of arteriolar tissue plasminogen activator, presence of arterial/arteriolar endothelial activation markers, and changes in vascular antithrombin. An immunohistochemical risk score was developed with a minimum value of 0 (normal) and a maximum value of 4 (most abnormal). Scores of 0 (low risk), 0.5,3.0 (moderate risk), and 3.5,4.0 (high risk) were analyzed for association with graft failure and development, severity, and progression of coronary artery disease detected using serial coronary angiograms (3.9 ▒ 0.2/patient). Allografts with high immunohistochemical risk scores in the first 3 months post-transplant developed more coronary artery disease (p,<,0.001), developed coronary artery disease earlier (p,<,0.001), developed more severe disease (p,<,0.001), and showed more disease progression (p,<,0.001) than allografts with moderate or low scores. Allografts with high immunohistochemical risk scores in the first 3 months post-transplant failed more (p,<,0.001) and failed earlier (p,<,0.001) than allografts with moderate or low scores. The present study demonstrates that early changes in the microvasculature are associated with impending coronary artery disease and graft failure in cardiac allograft recipients and suggests that treatment needs to be instituted early after transplantation in order to improve outcome.

    Immunotherapy for allergic rhinitis: clinical benefits and its working mechanisms

    CLINICAL & EXPERIMENTAL ALLERGY REVIEWS, Issue 1 2009
    Y. Nakai
    Summary Pollen immunotherapy exerts greater efficacy in the pollen season when the pollen count is not high than when it is high. Every pollen season, around half or more patients who have received pollen immunotherapy for >5 years are judged as good responders; those who have received immunotherapy for <5 years generally do less well. Therefore, the clinical response seems to depend on natural pollen counts and the duration of immunotherapy. In this study, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were sampled before and during the pollen season to examine IL-4, IL-5, and IFN-, levels. It was revealed that pollen immunotherapy could decrease IL-4 and -5 expression by pollen antigen-stimulated PBMCs. When patients under immunotherapy were divided into good and poor response groups, clinical effectiveness was related to the depressed level of IL-5 synthesis, but not to that of IL-4 synthesis. Our study suggests that a decrease of IL-5 expression during the pollen season is a key working mechanism of immunotherapy related to clinical effectiveness. In our patients, the incidence of systemic reactions was 5.8%/patient and <0.1%/injection. A higher incidence of systemic reactions was observed in patients with the presence or a past history of asthma, the presence but not a past history of atopic dermatitis, and higher levels of total IgE (>1000 U/mL). The incidence of systemic reactions in patients with 1 risk factor such as asthma, atopic dermatitis, and high IgE was 16.9%/patient and 0.1%/injection, whereas that in those without risk factors was 1.6%/patient and <0.1/injection.

    Playground Injuries in Children: A Review and Pennsylvania Trauma Center Experience

    JOURNAL FOR SPECIALISTS IN PEDIATRIC NURSING, Issue 1 2001
    Lisa Marie Bernardo
    ISSUES AND PURPOSE. To describe patient demographics, injury characteristics, and circumstances of playground injuries in children admitted to Pennsylvania trauma centers and to identify injury prevention strategies. DESIGN AND METHODS. Retrospective, descriptive study of 234 children ages 1 to 18 years sustaining playground-related injuries and whose hospital data were entered into the Pennsylvania Trauma Outcome Study. RESULTS. Most of the injuries occurred between April and September (77%), and noon to 6 P.M. (69%). Falls from playground equipment constituted the highest proportion of incidents (73%). Of 421 injuries (M = 1.8/patient), most were upper extremity (n = 117) and head (n = 110) injuries. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS. Nurses can advocate for playground safety by teaching children to play safely and recommending age-appropriate equipment and protective surfacing. [source]

    Predictors of Early Outcome After Coronary Artery Surgery in Patients with Severe Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    JOURNAL OF CARDIAC SURGERY, Issue 2 2003
    Naresh Trehan
    The present study was undertaken to identify the prognostic factors in such patients. Methods: We analyzed the data of 176 consecutive patients (161 men, 15 women), aged 29 to 88 years (mean 58.43), with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <30% who underwent isolated coronary artery bypass grafting. The LVEF ranged from 15% to 30% (mean 27.18%). Preoperatively, 33% had angina, 19.9% had recent myocardial infarction, and 21.6% had congestive heart failure. The mean number of grafts was 2.5/patient. The intra-aortic balloon was used prophylactically in 20.5% of patients and therapeutically in 4.0% of patients. Results: The hospital mortality was 2.3%. The complications occurred as follows: perioperative myocardial infarction in two (1.1%), intractable ventricular arrhythmias in two (1.1%), prolonged ventilation in four (2.3%) and peritoneal dialysis in 1 (0.6%). The mean ICU and hospital stay were2.46 ▒ 0.76and7.57 ▒ 2.24days, respectively. The predictors of survival on univariate analysis were New York Heart Association (NYHA) class(x2 = 14.458, p < 0.001), recent myocardial infarction(x2 = 5.852, p = 0.016), congestive heart failure (CHF)(x2 = 5.526, p = 0.019), and left ventricular end-systolic volume index (LVESVI)(x2 = 25.833, p < 0.001). However, on multivariate analysis, left ventricular end-systolic volume index was the only independent left ventricular function measurement predictive of survival(x2 = 10.228, p = 0.001). Conclusion: Left ventricular end-systolic volume index is the most important predictor of survival after coronary artery bypass surgery in patients with severe myocardial dysfunction.(J Card Surg 2003;18:101-106) [source]


    Chronic kidney disease care program improves quality of pre-end-stage renal disease care and reduces medical costs

    NEPHROLOGY, Issue 1 2010
    SHU-YI WEI
    ABSTRACT: Aim: Multidisciplinary care of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) provides better care outcomes. This study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a CKD care program on pre-end-stage renal disease (ESRD) care. Methods: One hundred and forty incident haemodialysis patients were classified into the CKD Care Group (n = 71) and the Nephrologist Care Group (n = 69) according to participation in the CKD care program before dialysis initiation. The ,total observation period' was divided into ,6 months before dialysis' and ,at dialysis initiation'. Quality of pre-ESRD care, service utilization and medical costs were evaluated and compared between groups. Results: The mean estimated glomerular filtration rates at dialysis initiation were low in both groups; but the levels of haematocrit and serum albumin of the CKD Care Group were significantly higher. The percentages of patients initiating dialysis with created vascular access, without insertion of double-lumen catheter and without hospitalization were 57.7%, 50.7% and 40.8%, respectively, in the CKD Care Group, and 37.7%, 29.0% and 18.8% in the Nephrologist Care Group (P < 0.001). Participation in the CKD care program, though with higher costs during the 6 months before dialysis ($US1428 ▒ 2049 vs US$675 ▒ 962/patient, P < 0.001), was significantly associated with lower medical costs at dialysis initiation ($US942 ▒ 1941 vs $US2410 ▒ 2481/patient, P < 0.001) and for the total period of observation ($US2674 ▒ 2780 vs $US3872 ▒ 3270/patient, P = 0.009). The cost-saving effect came through the early preparation of vascular access and the lack of hospitalization at dialysis initiation. Conclusion: CKD care programs significantly improve quality of pre-ESRD care, decrease service utilization and save medical costs. [source]

    Safety and efficacy of a sucrose-formulated recombinant factor VIII product for the treatment of previously treated patients with haemophilia A in China

    HAEMOPHILIA, Issue 4 2007
    J. SHI
    Summary., The use of plasma-derived products has contributed to a high rate of blood-borne infections among haemophilia patients in China. Recombinant factor VIII (rFVIII) products that are manufactured without human or bovine albumin and include dedicated viral inactivation steps, hold a significant safety advantage over plasma products. However, there is little information published on the use of rFVIII products in non-caucasian populations. This is the first reported evaluation of the efficacy and safety of a rFVIII product in Chinese haemophiliacs. An open-label, non-randomized, prospective, multicentre trial enroled previously treated Chinese patients with haemophilia A. All treatments were administered using a sucrose-formulated rFVIII-FS (Kogenate«). Forty-nine patients received totals of 291 infusions (mean, 5.94/patient) and 742 140 IU rFVIII-FS (mean, 2550.3 IU/infusion). Of the 60 acute bleeding episodes that were treated, 90% were successfully managed with only one (81.7%) infusion or two (8.3%) infusions. Physicians reported haemostasis control for acute bleeds to be ,Excellent' or ,Improved' with rFVIII-FS therapy. No FVIII inhibitors were detected in any patient. Only one treatment-related adverse event was reported, which was mild dizziness that resolved spontaneously. rFVIII-FS was efficacious, safe and well tolerated in the treatment of previously treated patients with haemophilia A in China.

    The use of water-jet dissection in open and laparoscopic liver resection

    HPB, Issue 4 2008
    H. G. RAU
    Abstract Background. We intend to give an overview of our experiences with the implementation of a new dissection technique in open and laparoscopic surgery. Methods. Our database comprises a total of 950 patients who underwent liver resection. Three hundred and fifty of them were performed exceptionally with the water-jet dissector. Forty-one laparoscopic partial liver resections were accomplished. Results. Using the water-jet dissection technique it was possible to reduce the blood loss, the Pringle- and resection time in comparison to CUSA« and blunt dissection. In the last five years we could reduce the Pringle-rate from 48 to 6% and the last 110 liver resections were performed without any Pringle's manoeuvre. At the same time, the transfusion-rate decreased from 1.86 to 0.46 EC/patient. In oncological resections, the used dissection technique had no influence on long-time survival. Conclusions. The water-jet dissection technique is fast, feasible, oncologically safe and can be used in open and in laparoscopic liver surgery. [source]


    CONCURRENT GASTRIC AND COLONIC LOW-GRADE MUCOSA-ASSOCIATED LYMPHOID TISSUE LYMPHOMATA IN A PATIENT WITHOUT HELICOBACTER PYLORI INFECTION

    DIGESTIVE ENDOSCOPY, Issue 1 2003
    HIROYUKI OKADA
    Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomata observed simultaneously in the stomach and colon are rare. We report concurrent gastric and colonic low-grade MALT lymphomata that originated from the same clone in a 58-year-old Japanese man without Helicobacter pylori infection. Endoscopy showed multiple erosive lesions in the gastric body and antrum, and a single flat elevation with an irregular margin in the sigmoid colon. Histopathological findings of both lesions suggested low-grade MALT lymphoma. Lymphoepithelial lesions were evident in the gastric lesions, but not in the colonic lesion. Southern blot analysis of lymphoma cells revealed the same immunoglobulin heavy-chain rearrangement pattern. The chromosomal translocation t(11;18)(q21;q21) was also observed. After six courses of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and predonisolone, the gastric lesions disappeared endoscopically, while the colonic lesion persisted. A sigmoidectomy was consequently performed. The chromosomal translocation may be related to the pathogenesis of the present MALT lymphoma case without H. pylori infection. It is interesting that the gastric and colonic lesions differed in response to treatment and in their endoscopic and histologic features, despite having the same origin. [source]


    ILEITIS AS A MAIN RECURRENT LESION IN A PATIENT WITH ULCERATIVE COLITIS: REPORT OF A CASE

    DIGESTIVE ENDOSCOPY, Issue 2 2000
    Shuichi Sano
    We report a case of ulcerative colitis complicating ileitis that endoscopically and histologically resembled a colonic lesion. Eight years prior to the time of writing, the patient had undergone proctosigmoidectomy and ileocecal resection because of severe hemorrhagic lesions of ulcerative colitis. A month prior to the time of writing, bleeding from the stoma occurred. Endoscopy revealed erosions on easy-bleeding mucosa in the ileum but no active inflammatory lesions in colonic mucosa except for small erosions in the descending colon beneath the stoma. Histologic findings of biopsy specimens from the ileal mucosa showed marked inflammation including neutrophile infiltration and crypt abscesses. This is a rare case of ulcerative colitis showing ileitis as a main recurrent lesion, suggesting that careful observation of the small intestine will be required after ileocecal resection in ulcerative colitis patients.

    AUTOMIC FAILURE AND NORMAL PRESSURE HYDROCEPHALUS IN A PATIENT WITH CHRONIC DEMYELINATING INFLAMMATORY NEUROPATHY

    A 75-year-old man with HCV hepatitis developed at the age of 70 presented with rest and action tremor localized at both hands and progressive cognitive impairment with memory loss. Four years later he begun to complain of progressive fatigue, occasional falls, numbness at the extremities and orthostatic hypotension. One month after admission, he rapidly worsened with inability to walk, mainly because of autonomic failure. Neurological examination revealed gait disturbances, including a wide base of support and short stride, slurred speech, reduction of upward gaze, rest and action tremor at both hands, intrinsic hand muscle and anterior tibialis muscle wasting and weakness on both sides, absent deep tendon reflexes, loss of vibration sense at lower limbs, and bilateral pes cavus. Routine laboratory studies, autoantibodies, thyroid function, neoplastic markers and immunoelectrophoresis were normal. Cryoglobulins were absent, whereas CSF protein content was increased (142 mg/dl). Autonomic nervous system investigation detected severe orthostatic hypotension. Nerve conduction studies showed absent sensory potentials and a marked reduction of compound motor action potential amplitudes and of motor conduction velocities. A sural nerve biopsy revealed remarkable onion bulb-like changes, endoneurial and perivascular infiltrations of inflammatory cells. Psychometric tests showed mild cognitive impairment. Brain MRI was consistent with normotensive hydrocephalus. The findings indicated the presence of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, autonomic nervous system involvement and normal pressure hydrocephalus. A condition of multiple system atrophy (MSA) might be taken into account, even if somatic peripheral nerve involvement may rarely occur in MSA. Moreover the normal pressure hydrocephalus could be due to the high protein content in CSF (Fukatsu R et al., 1997). [source]
