GI Dynamics (ASX:GID) said this week that its Endobarrier weight loss device is comparable to gastric bypass surgery in terms of glucose metabolism in obese patients with Type II diabetes.
The study was the 1st to compare improvement in glucose metabolism following gastric bypass surgery, Lexington, Mass.-based GI Dynamics said.
EndoBarrier has a significant impact on glucose metabolization at 1, 3 and 9 months of therapy, the company said, noting that improvements to glucose metabolism can decrease patients’ reliance on medication. The device is designed to mimic the duodenal-jejunal exclusion created by gastric bypass surgery, according to GI Dynamics. In March, the FDA shut down enrollment in a clinical trial for Endobarrier after 4 patients developed bacterial liver infections known as hepatic abscesses, causing shares of the company to plummet 50%. Change in management at GILUPI GmbHWith immediate effect, Alexander Herrmann is being promoted to managing director of a medical device company, GILUPI GmbH, which is located in Potsdam and Greifswald, Germany.

Philips did not reveal the impact of the split, expected to cost about $64.3 million from 2014 to 2016, on its 113,000 employees. In July, CEO Frans van Houten overhauled the management of the Philips’ 3 divisions, eliminating a middle layer of management that included then-Philips Healthcare CEO Deborah DeSanzo in favor of the units reporting directly to van Houten. Today Philips said the problems at the Cleveland plant are expected to cost an additional $128.6 million during the 2nd half of the year and forecast adjusted and reported EBITA declines.
Minor surgery, even if it doesn't involve anaesthesia or respiratory support, usually triggers anxiety in people, especially children.
The objective of the study was to develop a structured preparation programme using puppet play for children who underwent elective surgery by determining whether the intervention positively impacted the child's pre- and post-operative distress and behaviour. The researchers assessed 91 children, aged 4 to 10, who were admitted for elective ear, nose and throat surgery at the Athens-based Aghia Sophia Children's Hospital.


The team split the sample into two age groups: ages 4-6 (preschool age) and ages 7-10 (school age). The intervention was split in two parts: children participated in therapeutic puppet play and their mothers were given brief counselling sessions. The team reported considerably fewer behavioural disturbances in the children assigned to the intervention group following their surgeries.
Different measures were used, such as the Preschool Behavior Questionnaire, which measures aggression, anxiety, hyperactivity, low concentration skills and fearfulness in preschoolers, and the Rutter scales for teachers and parents focusing on emotional and conduct disorders of children aged between 9 to 13 years.
The researchers noted that the key difference found between the two groups may suggest that the psychological preparation programme helped the children to process the surgical procedure in a constructive way and to 'be more resilient to emotional or behavioural disturbances' following their operations. The team said more research should be conducted to test the effectiveness of this programme with other age groups, and stressed the need for hospitals and medical staff to provide both medical and psychological care. The hospital was recognized for its treatment in areas including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, ear, nose and throat treatment, gastroenterology, geriatrics, neurology and neurosurgey, orthopedics and urology. Rounding out the top three were Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick and Morristown Medical Center.
This is another important milestone that manifests the potential for device intervention while avoiding the alteration of anatomy by surgery," chief medical officer Dr. He succeeds Klaus Lucke, who is leaving GILUPI after more than 10 years to move on to new professional challenges. Philips Lighting was focused on LED systems to offset declines in conventional lighting products, including the incandescent bulbs that were its historic mainstay.
Philips calculated healthcare earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and other, one-time charges at $290 million in the second quarter. The children were then informed of what would happen during their hospital stay including what medical procedures would be involved (e.g.
According to the researchers, these children were psychologically prepared for the procedures.


The results also showed that the younger children (4-6 years old) assigned to the intervention group were less hyperactive and aggressive after surgery than those in the control group. News in partnership with with RTI International, a North Carolina-based research organization.
In July, Philips indicated it would resume Cleveland shipments gradually over the course of the current 3rd quarter.
Hospitals often use puppet play as a method to prepare children for surgery, but a team of Greek researchers has conducted a controlled study to determine the impact of puppet play on children undergoing minor surgery. The researchers also encouraged the children to ask questions about the surgical procedures and hospital stay, as well as to talk about their feelings.

Further, few manufacturers will build devices in small batches for development, testing and further iteration.
