Abstract Introduction Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) protocols have contributed to shortened hospital stays and reduced narcotic use after common surgical procedures. Though ERAS protocols exist for breast surgery, they have not been studied for implant-based reconstruction after mastectomy. Methods Twenty-three consecutive patients undergoing mastectomy with implant-based reconstruction were treated with perioperative gabapentin, acetaminophen, and NSAIDs. Data regarding clinical course...

Abstract Background Revised diagnostic criteria for pseudotumor cerebri syndrome require three of four neuroimaging findings in the absence of papilledema. We examined the sensitivity and specificity of three or more of four of these magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings for pseudotumor cerebri syndrome in children. Methods As part of clinical care, patients in whom there was suspicion for pseudotumor cerebri syndrome underwent neurological and fundoscopic examinations, lumbar puncture, MRI,...

OBJECTIVE: The Patient Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is a collection of item banks of self-reported health. This study assessed the feasibility and construct validity of using PROMIS instruments in vasculitis. METHODS: Data from a multicenter longitudinal cohort of subjects with systemic vasculitis were used. Instruments from 10 PROMIS item banks were selected with direct involvement of patients. Subjects completed PROMIS instruments using computer adaptive testing (CA...

Abstract Purpose CTY-5339A is an investigational topical anesthetic spray containing 14% benzocaine/2% tetracaine in a metered canister. Each spray delivers ∼0.2 mL of solution. This double-blind, randomized, crossover study compared the local anesthetic effect of CTY-5339A versus 14% benzocaine alone by using 2 quantitative sensory threshold experimental pain paradigms on the maxillary gingiva: pin prick test pain intensity (PPT PI) and heat pain threshold (HPT). Methods : American Society of A...

Abstract Background A patient's impression of quality of care is strongly influenced by pain management. Materials and methods We sought to understand the process of pro re nata (PRN) pain medication administration through direct observation and use of timestamped data from the electronic medical record (EMR). The total time from nurse notification to administration was compared between PRN narcotics, non-narcotic pain, and nonpain medications. Results We noted two pathways: patient-initiated re...
