  • Systematic Review on Prostate Cancer Survivorship
    Prostate Cancer Survivorship, 2018
    Co-Authors: Sanchia S. Goonewardene, Raj Persad
    Abstract:

    A Systematic Review relating to literature on the survivorship programmes for men potentially cured of prostate cancer was conducted. The search strategy aimed to identify all references related to prostate cancer survivorship programme components AND survivorship. Search terms used were as follows: (Prostate cancer OR prostate neoplasms) AND (survivorship OR survivor*) OR (support care OR diet therapy OR exercise OR communication) AND (post therapy OR post treatment) (Fig. 78.1). The selection criteria specified papers must be related to primary research only. All secondary research apart from meta-analyses, were excluded. The following databases were screened from 1984 to December 2013: CINAHL and MEDLINE (NHS Evidence), Cochrane, AMed, BNI, EMBASE, Health Business Elite, HMIC, PschINFO. In addition, searches using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and keywords were conducted using Cochrane databases. Primary research only was included in the Systematic Review. Two UK-based experts were consulted in Survivorship care to identify additional studies.

  • Prostate Cancer Survivorship: A Systematic Review
    Journal of Health Education Research & Development, 2015
    Co-Authors: Sanchia S. Goonewardene, Rajendra Persad, Nanton, Annie M. Young, Adel Makar
    Abstract:

    Background: Due to advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment, the number of prostate cancer survivors are increasing. Yet, with this expanding cohort of patients, very little has been done to develop services. Objective: A Systematic Review was conducted to explore prostate cancer survivorship issues. This analysis will inform development of interventions. Design/setting: A Systematic Review was conducted using the following databases from 2000 to Decembers 2013: CINAHL and MEDLINE (NHS Evidence), Cochrane, AMed, BNI, EMBASE, Health Business Elite, HMIC, PschINFO. The papers were retrieved and a quality assessment was conducted using a new tool for survivorship care standards. Participants/Interventions/ Outcome measurements/ results: 76 papers met the criteria for inclusion. These specified papers must be on primary research, related to prostate cancer AND Survivorship OR any one of the categories of nutrition, exercise therapy, psychology, treatment outcomes. Discussion: The literature is Reviewed and the way forward for survivorship discussed. We also identify possible themes for research. Patient summary: Based on these results, we develop a prostate cancer survivorship care assessment tool and identify areas of practice that can be targeting for further research.

  • an assessment of the compliance of Systematic Review articles published in craniofacial surgery with the prisma statement guidelines a Systematic Review
    Journal of Cranio-maxillofacial Surgery, 2016
    Co-Authors: Thomas E Pidgeon, Georgina Wellstead, Harkiran Sagoo, Daniyal J Jafree, Alexander J Fowler, Riaz Agha
    Abstract:

    Abstract Context Systematic Review evidence is increasing within craniofacial surgery. Compliance with recognised reporting guidelines for Systematic Review evidence has not been assessed. Objective To assess the compliance of Systematic Reviews published in craniofacial journals with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) reporting criteria. Data sources, search terms and study selection Thomson Reuters impact factor was used to identify three top craniofacial journals. A search for all Systematic Review articles published in these journals from 1st May 2010 to 30th April 2015 was conducted using MEDLINE PubMed. Data extraction Two independent researchers assessed each study for inclusion and performed the data extraction. Data included the article reference information; the pathology and interventions examined and compliance of each Review article with the PRISMA checklist. Data synthesis and results 97 studies were returned by the search. 62 studies proceeded to data extraction. The mean percentage of applicable PRISMA items that were met across all studies was 72.5% (range 28.6–96.2%). The area of poorest compliance was with the declaration of a study protocol (19.4% of studies). Only 37.1% of studies declared their source of funding. Conclusions Compliance of Systematic Review articles within craniofacial surgery with areas of the PRISMA checklist could be improved.

  • randomised controlled trials in plastic surgery a Systematic Review of reporting quality
    European Journal of Plastic Surgery, 2014
    Co-Authors: Riaz Agha, Christian F Camm, Emre Doganay, Eric Edison, Muhammed R S Siddiqui, Dennis P Orgill
    Abstract:

    Background We recently conducted a Systematic Review of the methodological quality of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in plastic surgery. In accordance with convention, we are here separately reporting a Systematic Review of the reporting quality of the same RCTs.

  • Nonunion of fibula: a Systematic Review
    International Orthopaedics, 2012
    Co-Authors: Arup K. Bhadra, Craig S. Roberts, Peter V. Giannoudis
    Abstract:

    Purpose The purpose of this Systematic Review was to analyse the available evidence regarding nonunions of the fibula. We focussed on the incidence, risk factors, evaluation, and treatment modalities for fibular nonunions as evident in the current literature and propose a treatment algorithm. Methods This was an Institutional Review Board (IRB) exempt study performed at a level one trauma centre. We Systematically Reviewed the published evidence on fibular nonunion or delayed union from 1950 to February, 2011. Results Twelve articles were included in this Systematic Review. In summary, nonunion of the fibula is becoming increasingly more common in association with intramedullary nailing of concomitant tibial shaft fractures. A treatment algorithm for nonunion of the fibula has been proposed. Conclusions The suspicion for nonunion of the fibula should be heightened in lower leg fractures if the patient is symptomatic, and the progression of healing is not as expected. Ideally, prospective, multicentre studies would be performed to provide more rigorous data on the incidence, risk factors, and optimum treatment.

  • Fallopian Tube Prolapse after Hysterectomy: A Systematic Review
    PloS one, 2013
    Co-Authors: Lobna Ouldamer, Agnès Caille, Gilles Body
    Abstract:

    Background Prolapse of the fallopian tube into the vaginal vault is a rarely reported complication that may occur after hysterectomy. Clinicians can miss the diagnosis of this disregarded complication when dealing with post-hysterectomy vaginal bleeding. Objectives We performed a Systematic Review in order to describe the clinical presentation, therapeutic management and outcome of fallopian tube prolapse occurring after hysterectomy. Search Strategy A Systematic search of MEDLINE and EMBASE references from January 1980 to December 2010 was performed. We included articles that reported cases of fallopian tube prolapse after hysterectomy. Data from eligible studies were independently extracted onto standardized forms by two Reviewers. Results Twenty-eight articles including 51 cases of fallopian tube prolapse after hysterectomy were included in this Systematic Review. Clinical presentations included abdominal pain, dyspareunia, post- coital bleeding, and/or vaginal discharge. Two cases were asymptomatic and diagnosed at routine checkup. The surgical management reported comprised partial or total salpingectomy, with vaginal repair in some cases combined with oophorectomy using different approaches (vaginal approach, combined vaginal-laparoscopic approach, laparoscopic approach, or laparotomy). Six patients were initially treated by silver nitrate application without success. Conclusions This Systematic Review provided a precise summary of the clinical characteristics and treatment of patients presenting with fallopian tube prolapse following hysterectomy published in the past 30 years. We anticipate that these results will help inform current investigations and treatment.
