Figure For ‘Medical Reversal’ Touches 400, Says New Research

The term ‘Medical Reversal’ defines instances where improved upcoming medical trials show the ineffectiveness of the current practices. Research shows that currently there are 400 medical reversals. A medical reversal is said to have occurred when an upcoming research shatters the credibility of a current medical practice.

These practices are far superior to the current practices due to larger samples, better control or better structural design. These reversals often occurring in medication are capable of altering surgical procedures. A decade ago, professionals and researchers realized that the procedure of stenting did not work in case of the stenosis of the renal artery. Due to this routine stenting was discarded as a treatment for coronary diseases in a stable condition.

An analysis of over 3000 cases revealed almost 400 such medical reversal scenarios, according to a journal eLife. A Knight Cancer Institute research assistant, Diana Herrrera-Parez, is the leading author for this research. Referring to endeavors, to validate clinical practices like the Cochrane, Diana said that they wish to contribute to the efforts being made for making the research studies clearer for researchers and clinicians, helping them provide better and economical medical facilities. The results of the researches were published in prestigious journals like NEJM, JAMA and The Lancet.

These researches were carried out mainly in countries with a high income rate. The Medical reversal cases were mostly seen in the cardiovascular (20%), preventive medicine (12%) and critical care (11%) fields. Dr. Vinay Prasad a senior author and an associate professor in the OHSU, commented on the research findings. He said that there were a quite a few lessons that can be inferred from the results, which includes the importance of conducting such practices in a randomized and controlled format, for established and novel practices.

He hoped that such findings would serve as a building block for policymakers, researchers and payers who wish to know about the medical practices while leads to no benefit for them.
