1161. Preliminary Study of Oxygen-Enhanced Longitudinal Relaxation in MRI: A Potential Novel Biomarker of Oxygenation Changes in Solid Tumors. (Abstract)

Preliminary Study of Oxygen-Enhanced Longitudinal Relaxation in MRI: A Potential Novel Biomarker of Oxygenation Changes in Solid Tumors. There is considerable interest in developing non-invasive methods of mapping tumor hypoxia. Changes in tissue oxygen concentration produce proportional changes in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) longitudinal relaxation rate (R(1)). This technique has been used previously to evaluate oxygen delivery to healthy tissues and is distinct from blood oxygenation (...) level-dependent (BOLD) imaging. Here we report application of this method to detect alteration in tumor oxygenation status.Ten patients with advanced cancer of the abdomen and pelvis underwent serial measurement of tumor R(1) while breathing medical air (21% oxygen) followed by 100% oxygen (oxygen-enhanced MRI). Gadolinium-based dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI was then performed to compare the spatial distribution of perfusion with that of oxygen-induced DeltaR(1).DeltaR(1) showed significant

1162. No supplemental muscle relaxants are required during propofol and remifentanil total intravenous anesthesia for laparoscopic pelvic surgery. (Abstract)

No supplemental muscle relaxants are required during propofol and remifentanil total intravenous anesthesia for laparoscopic pelvic surgery. No administration of supplemental muscle relaxants may be beneficial to the recovery of the ambulatory laparoscopic surgery. For this study, we compared the cardiorespiratory factors during propofol and remifentanil anesthesia for laparoscopic pelvic surgery (LPS) with or without supplemental muscle relaxants.In total, 56 healthy female patients scheduled (...) to undergo laparoscopic pelvic surgeries were randomly assigned to two groups (A and B). Anesthesia was induced with lidocaine 30 mg, propofol target organ concentration 5.0 microg/mL, remifentanil 3.0 ng/mL, and rocuronium 0.6 mg/kg intravenously (i.v.). After tracheal intubation, anesthesia was maintained with 2.0-5.0 microg/mL of propofol and 1-4 ng/mL of remifentanil i.v. All the patients' lungs were mechanically ventilated in both groups and intermittent bolus doses of rocuronium (0.15 mg/kg i.v

1163. Chronic Pain

in progress are investigating a variety of topics related to chronic pain, including the following: Whether tai chi is helpful for chronic low-back pain in older adults The potential value of probiotics for relieving pelvic pain associated with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome Whether progressive muscle relaxation is helpful for patients who visit emergency departments because of migraine The relationship between the availability of chiropractic care and the use of health services for back pain (...) of some approaches used for common kinds of pain. Chronic pain in general Some recent research has looked at the effects of complementary approaches on chronic pain in general rather than on specific painful conditions. A 2017 review looked at complementary approaches with the opioid crisis in mind, to see which ones might be helpful for relieving chronic pain and reducing the need for opioid therapy to manage pain. There was evidence that acupuncture, yoga, relaxation techniques , tai chi, massage

1170. MRI for the detection of foetal abnormalities

the intrinsic magnetic behaviour of hydrogen nuclei in the body. This causes a change in the alignment of the nuclei so that they are oscillating perpendicular to the main field direction (excitation). Tuned receiver coils detect these magnetic field oscillations through electromagnetic induction (personal communication 1 ). Once the pulse is removed, the nuclei realign or relax at different rates depending on the surrounding environment. The relaxation time is referred to as T1. In addition to relaxation (...) and cerebrospinal fluid have a long relaxation time, compared to nuclei in tissues, with hydrogen nuclei in fat cells having the shortest relaxation time of approximately 300 milliseconds. The differences in realignment and spin times appear as differences in brightness on the MR image. A series of consecutive two-dimensional images or slices are compiled and assembled by a computer program to produce a final three-dimensional image (FASEB 2002). Foetal MRI has been performed since 1983 primarily to study

Mind-body and behavioural therapies (9 studies). Two fair-quality (n=173 and n=81) and one poor-quality (n=30) trial examined exercise. Both of the fair-quality trials reported improvements (one in quality of life and one in menopausal symptoms) with treatment. Two poor-quality trials examined relaxation breathing, but neither reported (...) between-group differences. One small poor-quality study (n=14) assessed progressive muscle relaxation and found an improved time for the onset of hot flushes for the intervention group (p<0.1).

1172. The effectiveness of non-invasive treatments for active myofascial trigger point pain: a systematic review of the literature

. Eligible studies compared the noninvasive intervention with placebo, other treatment or a no treatment control group. Participants included in the review Studies of participants with myofascial pain with active MTrPs were eligible for inclusion. Minimum diagnostic criteria were the presence of a taut band and spot tenderness on palpitation. The location of MTrPs studied were neck and/or upper trapezius, upper and lower back, and on the abdomen as treatment for chronic pelvic pain. Outcomes assessed (...) ultrasound (HPPT-US) with conventional ultrasound reported a significant benefit of HPPT-US. However, this study also had a low validity score. Three studies examined the use of magnet therapies. Two studies used repetitive magnetic stimulation and both found it to be superior to placebo on pain measures (p-values ranged from 0.022 to 0.001). One study reported that magnets placed on MTrPs on the abdomen for chronic pelvic pain were superior to placebo on measures of pain (p<0.05). Four studies assessed

1174. Effects of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs on patient-controlled analgesia morphine side effects: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

heterogeneity was assessed using the Q test. A sensitivity analysis (defined a priori) was used to explore the influence of type of surgery (peripheral versus pelvic or abdominal), intra-operative opioid and reversal of muscle relaxant on the results. The relationship between morphine consumption and the incidence of nausea and vomiting was examined using regression analysis, with weighting applied using the inverse of the variance. Results of the review Twenty-two RCTs (n=2,307) were included. Post (...) orthopaedic and pelvic or abdominal surgery. Outcomes assessed in the review Studies were included if they assessed morphine-related adverse effects such as nausea, vomiting, sedation, urinary retention, respiratory depression and patient satisfaction. The primary review outcome was nausea and/or vomiting in the post-operative setting. The review also assessed author-defined nausea, vomiting and any emetic event separately. How were decisions on the relevance of primary studies made? The authors did
