PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

What decision to take?

The case was really an interesting one. But the decision whether to operate if it is a high risk with poor control has not been specified.

For the case mentioned, how could we proceed if the condition of the patient is worsening? Could you throw some light on this as it will help junior doctors like us.
