21. Comparison of Infection Risk with Corticosteroid or Hyaluronic Acid Injection Prior to Total Knee Arthroplasty

Comparison of Infection Risk with Corticosteroid or Hyaluronic Acid Injection Prior to Total Knee Arthroplasty Recent studies have shown that intra-articular injections ≤3 months before total knee arthroplasty increase the risk of periprosthetic joint infection. We are aware of no previous study that has differentiated the risk of periprosthetic joint infection on the basis of the type of medication injected. In addition, we are aware of no prior study that has evaluated whether hyaluronic acid (...) injections increase the risk of infection after total knee arthroplasty. In this study, we utilized pharmaceutical data to compare patients who received preoperative corticosteroid or hyaluronic acid injections and to determine whether a specific injection type increased the risk of periprosthetic joint infection.Patients undergoing unilateral primary total knee arthroplasty were selected from a nationwide private insurer database. Ipsilateral preoperative injections were identified and were grouped

22. Association of Corticosteroid Treatment With Outcomes in Adult Patients With Sepsis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Association of Corticosteroid Treatment With Outcomes in Adult Patients With Sepsis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Although corticosteroids are widely used for adults with sepsis, both the overall benefit and potential risks remain unclear.To conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the efficacy and safety of corticosteroids in patients with sepsis.MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched from inception until March 20, 2018 (...) , and updated on August 10, 2018.

This larger scale study helps address this uncertainty. What did this study do? This UK-based trial randomised 1,567 participants to receive either low-dose theophylline or placebo over a year in addition to their corticosteroid inhaler

Moisturisers improve eczema symptoms and lessen the need for corticosteroids Moisturisers improve eczema symptoms and lessen the need for corticosteroids Discover Portal Discover Portal Moisturisers improve eczema symptoms and lessen the need for corticosteroids Published on 27 June 2017 doi: Moisturisers help reduce eczema symptoms compared to no treatment, but to a minor extent. They do lengthen the time between each flare, and reduce the number of flares. Importantly they reduce the amount (...) of corticosteroid creams required. Moisturisers seem well tolerated, though there is little data on patient satisfaction. This Cochrane review of 77 trials does not provide information on which moisturiser might be preferred for different parts of the body or different disease severity. Nevertheless, since moisturisers reduce flares and form part of combined treatment with other active treatments, it makes sense to encourage their continued use. Given the lack of a one size fits all approach, people should have

Bell’s palsy is a sudden onset of weakness or paralysis of the muscles on one side of the face. Most people (...) recover completely within nine months, often with no treatment, but about three in 10 people are left with some weakness or unwanted facial movements. This Cochrane review found that ten people needed to be treated with corticosteroid, compared to placebo tablets, to avoid one incomplete recovery. It also showed that side effects were uncommon and mild. Corticosteroids are often already prescribed to treat Bell’s palsy in practice. This review confirms that they help. Any further trials should compare

Deaths around the time of birth were reduced by 28% and babies were a third (34%) less likely to develop respiratory distress syndrome. A corticosteroid dose is already used for women who go into labour or if waters break before 37 weeks or where delivery is planned for other reasons. The drug accelerates the development of the baby’s lungs and reduces breathing difficulties at birth. This recommendation followed decades of research. This review supports current practice of using a dose

Shoulder disorders are common and affect about three in ten adults at any one time. Rotator cuff disorders are the most common cause of shoulder pain. The tendons in the shoulder can be vulnerable to injury or tear, getting trapped (impingement), or just gradual degeneration of the tendon as a normal part of aging. Giving a corticosteroid injection into the joint is one option to treat pain. Despite

30. Corticosteroids could help reduce deaths due to blood poisoning

Corticosteroids could help reduce deaths due to blood poisoning Corticosteroids could help reduce deaths due to blood poisoning Discover Portal Discover Portal Corticosteroids could help reduce deaths due to blood poisoning Published on 23 March 2016 doi: Treatment with low dose corticosteroids given over three or more days reduces the death rate from blood poisoning by 13%, saving about 43 lives per 1000 treated at one month. Blood sugar and sodium levels rose slightly (...) but there was no increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding or additional infection. Current international guidance from 2012 only recommends using corticosteroids as an add-on therapy for people with blood poisoning whose circulation has not been restored by adequate fluid replacement and vasopressors. This review lends some weight to the case for using corticosteroids more widely for sepsis, but is not definitive. This uncertainty is due to inconsistency in results, with some trials finding no difference in mortality
