Sinus floor augmentation surgery using autologous bone grafts from various donor sites: a meta-analysis of the total bone volume

BACKGROUND: To date, no studies have been published that evaluated histomorphometric data from a large number of patients while comparing different sites and methods of autologous bone grafting in sinus floor augmentation procedures. A meta-analysis of the English literature from January 1995 till April 2009 was carried out.

A systematic review of the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of pharmacological and psychological interventions for the management of obsessive–compulsive disorder in children/adolescents and adults

The study found that in adults with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), psychological interventions, clomipramine, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or combinations of these are all effective, whereas in children and adolescents with OCD, psychological interventions, either as monotherapy or combined with specific SSRIs, were more likely to be effective.

Which method is best for the induction of labour? A systematic review, network meta-analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis

For women with favourable cervix, the study found that misoprostol and oxytocin with amniotomy are more likely to be successful than other agents in achieving vaginal delivery within 24 hours. Cost-effectiveness analysis suggested that titrated (low-dose) oral misoprostol solution and buccal/sublingual misoprostol were most likely to represent value for money, although there was a lot of uncertainty in the cost-effectiveness estimates.

Clinical outcomes of sinus floor augmentation for implant placement using autogenous bone or bone substitutes: a systematic review

This review concluded that there was little evidence to suggest superiority of autogenous bone over bone substitutes for sinus floor augmentation. These conclusions were supported by data presented. However, due to a lack of quality assessment of included studies and presence of clinical heterogeneity between studies, these results must be treated with some caution.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Core Interventions in the Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder

This guideline has been developed to advise on the identification, treatment and management of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Although distinct disorders, OCD and BDD share a number of common features and there is a high degree of similarity between the treatments for the two conditions. The guideline recommendations have been developed by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, people with OCD, a carer and guideline methodologists after careful consideration of the best available evidence. It is intended that the guideline will be useful to clinicians and service commissioners in providing and planning high quality care for those with OCD and BDD while also emphasising the importance of the experience of care for people with OCD, BDD, and carers.

Menopause: Full Guideline

In summary, a large number of women in the UK experience menopausal symptoms which, in many cases, can significantly affect their quality of life. It is probable that a minority of these women seek medical treatment and for those who do there is considerable variation in the help available, with many being told that the symptoms will get better with time. Since symptoms may often continue for 7 years or more, this advice is inappropriate and help should be offered where possible. Women need to know about the available options and their risks and benefits, and be empowered to become part of the decision-making process.

Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression: Diagnosis and Management of Patients at Risk of or with Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression

It is difficult to know what the true incidence of metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) is in England and Wales because the cases are not systematically recorded. However, evidence from an audit carried out in Scotland between 1997 and 1999 and from a published study from Ontario, Canada, suggests that the incidence may be up to 80 cases per million population per year. This would mean around 4000 cases per year in England and Wales or more than 100 cases per cancer network per year.

Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) in Children and Young People: Diagnosis and Management

Diabetes is a long-term condition that can have a major impact on the life of a child or young person, as well as their family or carers. In addition to insulin therapy, diabetes management should include education, support and access to psychological services, as detailed here and in this guideline. Preparations should also be made for the transition from paediatric to adult services, which have a somewhat different model of care and evidence base.

Barrett’s Oesophagus: Ablative Therapy for the Treatment of Barrett’s Oesophagus

Barrett’s oesophagus develops as a consequence of chronic gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. It is characterised by abnormal changes in the oesophageal lining that may, in some patients, become dysplastic and lead to oesophageal cancer. Oesophagectomy (surgical removal of the oesophagus) is the standard NHS treatment for high-grade dysplastic Barrett’s oesophagus or intramucosal cancer (including T1a); however, it is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Consequently less invasive surgical techniques, such as endoscopic mucosal resection, and ablative treatments have been developed and are being used as alternatives for patients who are unsuitable for surgery or who express a preference for less invasive options. However, in the past there has been uncertainty whether ablative therapy for Barrett’s oesophagus is both clinically and cost effective compared with other management options.

Postnatal Care: Routine Postnatal Care of Women and Their Babies [Internet]

This guideline has been written within a conceptual framework which places the woman and her baby at the centre of care, appreciating that all postnatal care should be delivered in partnership with the woman and should be individualised to meet the needs of each mother-infant dyad. The guideline aims to identify the essential ‘core care’ which every woman and her baby should receive, as appropriate to their needs, during the first 6–8 weeks after birth, based upon the best evidence available.

Stroke Rehabilitation: Long Term Rehabilitation After Stroke [Internet]

The aim of this guideline development group was to review the structure, processes and interventions currently used in rehabilitation care, and to evaluate whether they improve outcomes for people with stroke. Such studies are complex and research methodologies need to be robust. Evaluation of clinical effectiveness needs studies that have robust theoretical underpinnings, capture changes that are relevant to the treatment evaluated and reflect what is important to patients, and be large enough to allow reliable data interpretation. This guideline reviews some of the available interventions that can be used in stroke rehabilitation, and highlights where there are gaps in the evidence. It is not intended to be comprehensive.

Graft tensioning in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials

This generally well-conducted review concluded that underpowered, heterogeneous evidence showed a trend toward 80 Newtons being the most effective amount of tension to apply during knee anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using hamstring-polyester graft sources. There was either no clear trend or no evidence for reconstruction using other graft types. These cautious conclusions are likely to be reliable.
