, the prognosis appears to be influenced by genetic events other than kinase mutations, although a particular kinase mutation may help to define the initial clinical course of a GIST. Based on retrospective studies from time periods that predated the clinical use of kinase inhibitors, current recommendations for assessing the risk of progression for a newly diagnosed primary GIST rely on three parameters (see ):[ , - ] Mitotic index (mitoses per 50 high-power fields). Tumor size. Tumor location. Table 1. Risk (...) recommendations are, therefore, based upon expert opinion and clinical judgment taking into account tumor site, size, and mitotic index. For surgically treated patients with localized disease, routine follow-up schedules may differ across institutions and may depend on the risk status of the tumor.[ ] Abdominal/pelvic CT may be performed every 3 to 6 months, but very low-risk lesions may not need routine follow-up testing.[ ] CT or 18F-FDG PET are used to monitor therapeutic effects in patients receiving

238. Toxicity, Cocaine (Diagnosis)

Management The general objectives of pharmacotherapeutic intervention in cocaine toxicity are to reduce the CNS and cardiovascular effects of the drug. These are accomplished by using benzodiazepines initially and then controlling clinically significant tachycardia and hypertension while simultaneously attempting to limit deleterious drug interactions.

Hyperthermia, which may also be caused by downregulation of dopamine receptors, increases the incidence of fatal excited delirium. Death from excited delirium is more common in the summer months than at other times (55% vs 33% for other accidental cocaine toxicity deaths); therefore, high ambient temperature and humidity may play roles in the development of hyperthermia. An independent risk factor for fatal excited delirium is a body mass index (weight in kilograms/height in square meters) in the upper 3
