1. Hydrocortisone is not noninferior to pasireotide in the reduction of postoperative complications in patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy. Evidence Rating: 1 (Excellent) Partial pancreatectomies carry high risk profile for complications, with pancreatic fistulas being one of the major sources of serious postoperative complications. Despite various alterations to surgical methodology and pharmacologic therapies...

Study findings suggest that early administration of intravenous dexamethasone during acute respiratory distress syndrome may decrease duration of mechanical ventilation and mortality rates. Evidence Level: 1 (Excellent) Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), characterized by acute hypoxemic respiratory failure...
1. There were no significant differences in rates of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and mortality at 36 weeks’ postmenstrual age (PMA) as a composite outcome in ventilator-dependent very preterm infants who received systemic hydrocortisone versus placebo. However, mortality at 36 weeks’ PMA as an individual outcome, was significantly lower in...
