Endoscopic injection of cyanoacrylate glue versus other endoscopic procedures for acute bleeding gastric varices in people with portal hypertension | Cochrane

Acute bleeding from ruptured gastric varices (enlarged veins), the most severe consequence of portal hypertension (that is increased pressure in the veins leading to the liver), is associated with high death rates. The most promising treatment for this condition is considered to be endoscopic sclerotherapy (passing a flexible tube with a camera at the end down the oesophagus (swallowing tube) allowing direct visualisation and treatment of bleeding varices) with N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (cyanoacrylate), which is a glue that causes blood clots to form and stops the bleeding. However, incidence of re-bleeding and complications have opened a debate on when this glue should be used compared with other endoscopic procedures.

Pain control using local anaesthetics to improve surgical results after shoulder, hip and knee replacement surgery | Cochrane

Doctors can use regional analgesia (injection of local anaesthetics near the nerves or the surgical site) rather than conventional pain control after surgery. Does this choice improve long-term function after elective major joint (knee, shoulder and hip) replacement? We conducted this systematic review to explore controversy about the use of regional analgesia amidst efforts to limit healthcare costs and demonstrate value for interventions.
