INTRODUCTION Emergence agitation (EA) is common after sevoflurane anesthesia in children, and can lead to distressing inconsolability, agitation, crying, and injury. Use of a single dose of the short-acting sedative-hypnotic agent propofol at the end of a procedure has shown promise for preventing EA, but evidence evaluating the efficacy and safety of this(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) at high risk for aortic valve replacement are a unique population with multiple treatment options, including medical therapy, surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Traditionally, in elderly populations, goals of treatment may favour quality of life over(More)
OBJECTIVE Describe cardiovascular clinicians' perceptions of Shared Decision Making following use of a decision aid (DA) for stable coronary artery disease (CAD) "PCI Choice", in a randomized controlled trial. METHODS We conducted a semi-structured qualitative interview study with cardiologists and physician extenders (n=13) after using PCI Choice in(More)
Many patients with severe mitral regurgitation cannot undergo conventional mitral valve surgery due to prohibitive surgical risk and are candidates for transcatheter repair with an edge-to-edge technique. Prior reports suggest efficacy with this approach for mitral regurgitation due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with left ventricular outflow obstruction.(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia that increases patients' risk of stroke, and determining an optimal prevention therapy is a preference-sensitive decision appropriate for shared decision making (SDM). Utilizing community-based focus groups, we explored beliefs and values around options for stroke prevention. Interview transcripts from five(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is a common irregular heart rhythm that increases patients' risk of stroke. Aspirin, warfarin, direct oral anticoagulants, and an implantable device can reduce this risk. Given the availability of multiple comparable options, this decision depends on patient preferences and is appropriate for the use of decision aids and other(More)
