Roland Grad, Mark H Ebell
A challenge in the Choosing Wisely campaign is to identify low-value clinical actions supported by high-quality evidence. We applied a method based on crowdsourcing the Daily POEM (patient-oriented evidence that matters) to identify low-value clinical actions from research studies consistent with the principles of Choosing Wisely. In 2016, we analyzed an average of 1,382 questionnaires on 265 unique POEMs delivered to physician members of the Canadian Medical Association. From these questionnaires, we identified the POEMs ranking highest on one questionnaire item directly linked to reducing overdiagnosis or overtreatment...

INTRODUCTION: With the increasing adoption of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) as a first-line therapy for achalasia as well as a growing list of other indications, it is apparent that there is a need for effective training methods for both endoscopists in training and those already in practice. We present a hands-on-focused with pre- and post-testing methodology to teach these skills. METHODS: Six POEM courses were taught by 11 experienced POEM endoscopists at two independent simulation laboratories...

POEMS syndrome is a rare paraneoplastic condition, with a poorly understood pathogenesis. High dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has been reported to be an effective therapeutic option for patients with good performance status. Here, we review the role of ASCT for POEMS syndrome and discuss indications together with advantages and disadvantages, and related issues such lenalidomide given before or after ASCT, VEGF levels as a marker of disease, and different regimens for stem cell mobilization...

Castleman's disease (CD) is an atypical lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown cause, characterized by non-clonal nodal hyperplastic growth. Two forms of clinical presentation are currently recognized, one localized and the other multicentric, and four histopathologic variants. It is characterized by generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, fever and night sweats. CD may present severe pancytopenia, multi-organ failure, lymphoma evolution and it can sometimes be associated with paraneoplastic syndromes such as POEMS syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with a heterogeneous presentation and clinical course. There is a lack of simple and validated severity assessments that are feasible for clinical practice and epidemiological research. OBJECTIVES: We sought to validate patient-reported global AD severity in adults. METHODS: We performed a prospective dermatology practice-based study using questionnaires and evaluation by a dermatologist (n=265)...

Background and study aims Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is an excellent endoscopic treatment for achalasia. Clinical and manometric parameters are used for evaluation and follow-up. However, clinical success does not guarantee high quality of life (QoL) scores, generating doubts about their direct relationship. We aimed to evaluate QoL scores before and after POEM at medium and long term, to evaluate differences between achalasia subtypes and find which factors related to low QoL scores. Patients and methods Achalasia-confirmed patients undergoing POEM between February 2012 and November 2016...

REVIEW
Andrea Nozza
POEMS syndrome is a rare, chronic and disabling condition. The causes of this condition remain unknown; however, chronic overproduction of proinflammatory cytokines appears to be a major contributor. Early diagnosis is essential to start treatment before the clinical state of the patient becomes compromised. A complete evaluation of the disease at its onset is critical to the treatment decision. In localized disease, curative doses of radiation (50 Gy) is the recommended therapy. On the other hand, patients with disseminated disease should be given systemic therapy...

Polyneuropathy, Organomegaly, Endocrinopathy, M protein and Skin changes (POEMS) syndrome is rare plasma cell dyscrasia with multisystem involvement. The name comes from the five characteristic features: Polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, M protein and skin changes. The presence of biclonal M band is a rare manifestation. Here, we are describing the cases of a 60-year-old lady, presented with bilateral pedal oedema and pericardial effusion and peripheral neuropathy. She also had hepatosplenomegaly, hyperpigmented rash and hypothyroidism and hyperparathyroidism...

Adherence to antiretroviral medication among people living with HIV (PL-HIV) is critical to individual and public health. By some estimates only a quarter of PL-HIV are sufficiently adherent, underscoring a continued need for adherence-promoting strategies. In this analysis we explore the effect of adherence education posters developed via Photovoice. A group of PL-HIV generated images and captions to describe their adherence experiences and used their photo-stories to design 10 posters. We assessed viewers' ( N = 111) adherence knowledge, self-efficacy, and communication changes quantitatively and qualitatively before and 3 months after poster placement in the clinic...

BACKGROUND: Endothelial cell damage and glycocalyx shedding following trauma can increase the risk of inflammation, coagulopathy, vascular permeability and death. Bedside sublingual video-microscopy may detect worse flow and perfusion associated with this endotheliopathy. We compared markers of endotheliopathy with physical flow dynamics following traumatic hemorrhagic shock (THS). METHODS: Sublingual incident dark field video-microscopy was performed at three time-points following injury (<10h; 10-30h; and 30-50h)...

Symptomatic epiphrenic diverticula are mostly treated surgically with laparoscopic diverticulectomy, myotomy and anterior fundoplication. However, in case the patient does not agree with surgical therapy or is contraindicated there are limited ways of alternative treatment. We present a case report of a 72-year-old female patient with severe dysphagia, regurgitation, paroxysmal cough, weight loss and malnutrition who was diagnosed with achalasia and large epiphrenic diverticulum. She did not give consent with surgical treatment that was proposed...

"How wide and varied is the experience of the battlefield and how fertile the blood of warriors in raising good surgeons" Sir Clifford Allbutt (1898). With these sentiments of the medical lessons learned in war and conflict, with the background of the poem of "In Flanders Field", written by a doctor who had South African War connections, reasons (the Somme and third Ypres battles) will be given that this was indeed a "GREAT WAR" as the world history, weapons, strategy, tactics and wounding patterns had changed dramatically...

BACKGROUND: Zenker diverticulum is characterized by dysphagia, weight loss and bronchoaspiration [1]. Open surgery has been the cornerstone of treatment, with good response but recurrence up to 35%.[2]. Rigid endoscopic diverticulotomy has similar results, but with conversion to open surgery up to 30%[3]. Flexible endoscopic diverticulotomy is safe, effective and can be performed in an endoscopic setting, but multiple sessions are needed because of uncomplete cut of the septum[4,5]. Z-POEM is a new procedure in which a total septum myotomy throughout a submucosal tunnel can be performed...

With the development of endoscopic interventions and inspired by the success of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for the treatment of achalasia, we investigated an old method of direct peroral endoscopic myotomy without a submucosal tunnel for the treatment of achalasia, which we call open peroral endoscopic myotomy (O-POEM). In this study, Clinical success was achieved in the patient after O-POEM. A reduction of LES pressure, Eckardt score, and a timed barium esophagogram were observed during follow-up. There were no severe complications and no recurrences during two months of follow-up...

Pulmonary hypertension is one of the well-known clinical manifestations of polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes (POEMS) syndrome, occurring in approximately 25-30% of the affected individuals. However, the histopathologic spectrum of pulmonary hypertension associated with POEMS syndrome has not been fully documented in the literature. Herein, we report an autopsy case of POEMS syndrome in a patient whose lung tissues showed histopathology indistinguishable from that of idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension with abundant plexiform lesions in the small pulmonary arteries...

OBJECTIVES: One of the challenges during per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is ensuring the appropriate length of myotomy on the gastric side. To determine the appropriate distal end of the gastric myotomy, we focused on the two penetrating vessels (TPVs) found in the gastric cardia during POEM. In this study, we evaluated whether the TPVs could serve as an accurate indicator of the appropriate distal end of the gastric myotomy. METHODS: All patients who underwent POEM between March and August 2016 were included for this study...

Narrative Inquiry is a research methodology that enables a researcher to explore experience through a metaphorical analytic three-dimensional space where time, interaction of personal and social conditions, and place make up the dimensions for working with co-participant stories. This inquiry process, analysis, and interpretation involve a series of reflective cognitive movements that make possible the reformulations that take place in the research journey. In this article, I retell the process of my inquiry in moving from field texts (data sources) to research text (interpretation of experience) in Narrative Inquiry...
