102. Endoscopic versus open microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia: a systematic review and comparative meta-analysis

Endoscopic versus open microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia: a systematic review and comparative meta-analysis OBJECTIVEMicrovascular decompression (MVD) is commonly used in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) with positive clinical outcomes. Fully endoscopic MVD (E-MVD) has been proposed as an effective minimally invasive alternative, but a comparative review of the two approaches has not been conducted. The authors performed a meta-analysis of studies, comparing patient (...) outcome rates and complications for the open versus the endoscopic technique.METHODSThe PubMed/MEDLINE and Ovid databases were searched for studies published from database inception to 2017. The search terms used included, but were not limited to, "open microvascular decompression," "microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia," and "endoscopic decompression for trigeminal neuralgia." Criteria for inclusion of studies in the meta-analysis were established as follows: adult patients, clinical

104. Long-term outcomes of mechanical versus biological aortic valve prosthesis: Systematic review and meta-analysis

Long-term outcomes of mechanical versus biological aortic valve prosthesis: Systematic review and meta-analysis In recent years, the use of surgically implanted biological aortic valves has been favored over mechanical prosthesis in patients between 50 and 70 years of age. However, outcomes on long-term survival are contradictory. The objective of this study was to determine if patients with mechanical valves have worse long-term survival than patients with biological prostheses.We (...) systematically searched published studies that: (1) were propensity score-matched or randomized controlled trials; (2) provided survival data with a minimum follow-up of 5 years; and (3) included patients older than 50 and younger than 70 years of age. Review articles, case reports, and editorials were excluded. We conducted a meta-analysis on the basis of 2 types of analysis. A reconstruction of the database of each study to simulate a patient-level meta-analysis was performed. Log rank test of Kaplan-Meier

108. Incidence, risk factors, and outcomes of venous thromboembolism after oncologic surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Incidence, risk factors, and outcomes of venous thromboembolism after oncologic surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis The risk and prognosis of VTE associated with oncologic surgery need to be quantified to guide patient management. We aimed to examine the availability of data and to report the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in cancer patients after surgery, as well as the clinical outcomes of VTE following oncologic surgery.We searched multiple databases for terms related (...) to VTE after oncologic surgery from inception to November 1, 2017. A random-effects meta-analysis was done to calculate the pooled incidence of VTE.Of the 8611 citations identified, 136 studies including 1,481,659 patients met the eligibility criteria. The overall incidence of VTE was estimated to be 2.3% (95% CI 2.1-2.5). Bone and soft tissue cancer (10.6%, 95% CI 2.9-18.2) and lung cancer (8.1%, 95% CI 3.7-12.6) were associated with the highest and second highest risk of postoperative VTE

112. Drug-eluting or bare-metal stents for percutaneous coronary intervention: a systematic review and individual patient data meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials. (PubMed)

Drug-eluting or bare-metal stents for percutaneous coronary intervention: a systematic review and individual patient data meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials. New-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) have mostly been investigated in head-to-head non-inferiority trials against early-generation DES and have typically shown similar efficacy and superior safety. How the safety profile of new-generation DES compares with that of bare-metal stents (BMS) is less clear.We did an individual (...) patient data meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials to compare outcomes after implantation of new-generation DES or BMS among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. The primary outcome was the composite of cardiac death or myocardial infarction. Data were pooled in a one-stage random-effects meta-analysis and examined at maximum follow-up and a 1-year landmark.

113. Effects of Promotility Agents on Gastric Emptying and Symptoms: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Effects of Promotility Agents on Gastric Emptying and Symptoms: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Studies have reported a lack of association between improvements in gastric emptying (GE) and upper gastrointestinal (UGI) symptoms with promotility drugs. However, GE test methods were suboptimal in some studies. We assessed improvements in GE and UGI symptoms in patients given promotility agents in studies with optimal or moderate test methods (scintigraphy or breath test, solid meal, >2 (...) found no significant association between change in GE and UGI symptoms. However, when only studies with optimal GE test methods were evaluated, there was a significant positive association between improvement in GE and UGI symptoms (P = .02).In a meta-analysis of published trials, we found promotility agents to significantly accelerate GE (when optimal test methods were used) and to produce significant improvements in UGI symptoms.Copyright © 2019 AGA Institute.
