Mortality rates after treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms have substantially decreased in the past decade, according to new findings presented today at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery's (SNIS) 17th Annual Meeting. The study, Trends in Mortality and Morbidity after Treatment of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysm in the United States, 2006-2016, analyzed data from 21,609 patients in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database across a 10-year period. The research compares two treatments for unruptured intracranial aneurysms: microsurgical clipping and endovascular embolization.

Encouraging paid workers to employ the 'right kind' of respectful personal relationship with young people with disability will lift standards in the sector, experts say. With good quality relationships, children and young adults with cognitive disability feel "valued, respected and cared about" in their daily lives and, in turn, give carers more job satisfaction and self-respect, international researchers say in a new paper published in the international Disability & Society journal.
An exploratory analysis of data from the CANTOS (Canakinumab Anti-inflammatory Thrombosis Outcomes Study) randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that patients receiving interleukin-1β (IL-1β) inhibitors had significantly lower rates of total hip or total knee replacements over an average follow up of 3.7 years. These findings are important, as no treatments currently exist that can either prevent or slow progression of osteoarthritis. The study is published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
