REVIEW
Tendai Aswad Muchedzi, Simon B Roberts
INTRODUCTION: Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has been suggested to be effective in the management of knee osteoarthritis. Review of current literature reveals conflicting evidence regarding the benefits of PRP in treating knee OA. Preclinical evidence supports the use of PRP injections to promote a favorable environment for joint tissue healing, targeting not only cartilage but also synovial and meniscal tissues which has a positive effect on delaying the progression of OA. Growth factors found in platelet granules are postulated to influence outcomes in knee OA and after total knee arthroplasty (TKA)...

Kim Wopken, Hendrik P Bijl, Johannes A Langendijk
BACKGROUND: Tube feeding dependence is a commonly observed debilitating side-effect of curative (chemo-) radiation in head and neck cancer patients that severely affects quality of life. Prevention of this side-effect can be obtained using advanced radiation techniques, such as IMRT. For radiotherapy treatment plan optimization, it has become increasingly important to develop prediction models that enable clinicians to predict the risk of tube feeding dependence for individual patients...

Timing of cortisol collection during pregnancy is an important factor within studies reporting on the association between maternal cortisol and depression during pregnancy. Our objective was to further examine the extent to which reported associations differed across studies according to time of maternal cortisol collection during pregnancy. On December 15, 2016, records were identified using PubMed/MEDLINE (National Library of Medicine), EMBASE (Elsevier; 1974-), Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL, EBSCO), PsycINFO (EBSCO), and Web of Science Core Collection (Thomson Reuters)...

BACKGROUND: Anterior myocardial infarction (MI) with apical dysfunction is associated with an increased risk of left ventricular thrombus (LVT) formation and systemic embolism (SE). However, the role for prophylactic anticoagulation in current practice is a matter of debate. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed original articles in either English or French on the benefit of combining anticoagulation with standard therapy for the prevention of LVT/SE after MI by searching PubMed, Ovid/MedLine/Embase, the Cochrane Library, and Google Scholar...

BACKGROUND: To reduce the risk of postoperative stress urinary incontinence (POSUI) prolapse repair might be combined with incontinence surgery. OBJECTIVES: Compare efficacy and safety of prolapse surgery with and without incontinence surgery. SEARCH STRATEGY: Including our earlier review a systematic search in PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library and the Register of Current Controlled Trials was performed from 1995 to 2017.

BACKGROUND: Small randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational studies have examined the effectiveness and safety of the Impella device, a percutaneous left ventricular assist device, in the setting of high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, data are sparse and results are conflicting. Our objective was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the Impella device in high-risk patients undergoing PCI via a systematic review of the literature. METHODS: We searched Medline, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library for RCTs and observational studies that evaluated the Impella device in high-risk patients undergoing PCI...

INTRODUCTION: For patients with a first unprovoked venous thromboembolism (VTE), the optimal duration of anticoagulation is a crucial clinical dilemma which has yet to be resolved. The decision to stop anticoagulant therapy (AT) after the initial 3-6 months or to continue AT indefinitely, is primarily governed by the long-term risk of recurrence when treatment is discontinued. This risk however, is not well established, hindering decision making. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: We will conduct a systematic review and a meta-analysis of studies involving patients diagnosed with a first, symptomatic unprovoked VTE or VTE provoked by minor transient risk factors, who have completed at least 3 months of initial AT; and who were followed-up for standardised time intervals of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 years (±3 months) after stopping AT...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of telemonitoring (TM) in the management of patients with heart failure (HF). METHODS AND RESULTS: We searched Ovid-Medline, Ovid-EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library for randomized controlled trials published through April 2016.

PURPOSE: Propofol is a short-acting medication with fast cognitive and psychomotor recovery. However, patients are usually instructed not to drive a motor vehicle for 24 hours after receiving propofol. The purpose of this article was to review the evidence examining when it is safe to drive after receiving propofol for sedation for diagnostic and surgical procedures. DESIGN: This is a systematic review of the literature. METHODS: A search of the literature was conducted using Google Scholar, PubMed, and the Cochrane Library for the time period 1990 to 2015...

To understand the relationship between p-Akt expression and the prognosis of patients with gastric cancer, we searched six databases, Pubmed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, CNKI, Wanfang and CBM for relevant articles in order to conduct this metaanalysis. The pooled hazard ratios and corresponding 95%CI of overall survival were calculated to evaluate the prognostic value of p-Akt expression in patients with gastric cancer. With 2261 patients combined from 13 available studies, the pooled HR showed a poor prognosis in patients with gastric cancer in the univariate analysis (HR=1...

BACKGROUND: Tranexamic acid (TXA) is an antifibrinolytic drug that has been shown to be effective in reducing blood loss and the need for transfusions after several orthopaedic surgeries. However, the effectiveness of TXA use in orthopaedic fracture surgeries still remains unclear. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to review existing literature with interest in the effectiveness and safety of TXA treatment in reducing total blood loss and transfusion rates for patients who underwent surgery for fracture repairs...
