Oncological control following partial gland ablation for intermediate-risk prostate cancer.

Urol Oncol 2020 May 30. Epub 2020 May 30.

Department of Urology, NYU Langone Health, New York, NY.

Historically, the primary objection to partial gland ablation (PGA) for management of prostate cancer (CaP) has been disease multifocality and inability to localize significant disease. Improved disease localization and risk stratification with multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging and targeted biopsy, along with its minimal adverse impact on quality of life has enabled PGA to gain acceptance. Today, the primary barrier for adopting PGA is its unknown oncological outcomes. Read More

BMJ Open 2020 Jun 1;10(6):e035610. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Department of Physical Therapy, Universidade Federal de São Carlos, São Carlos, São Paulo, Brazil

Introduction: There is an unmet need to develop tailored therapeutic exercise protocols applying different treatment parameters and modalities for individuals with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Cryotherapy is widely used in rehabilitation as an adjunct treatment due to its effects on pain and the inflammatory process. However, disagreement between KOA guidelines remains with respect to its recommendation status. Read More

An Bras Dermatol 2020 May 11. Epub 2020 May 11.

Department of Tropical Dermatology, Fundação de Dermatologia Tropical e Venereologia Alfredo da Matta, Manaus, AM, Brazil.

Chromoblastomycosis is a subcutaneous mycosis with chronic evolution that mainly affects the lower limbs and, less frequently, the auricles. Clinically, it presents with papillary verrucous, nodular, and/or tumoral lesions, whether isolated or infiltrated, forming plaques and, sometimes, atrophic in some areas. Histopathologically, it is characterized by a dermal granulomatous inflammatory infiltrate, and the diagnosis can be confirmed by the presence of fumagoid bodies in anatomopathological or direct mycological exams.

Is India's public health care system prepared for cervical cancer screening?: Evaluating facility readiness from the fourth round of the District Level Household and Facility Survey (DLHS-4).

Prev Med 2020 May 27:106147. Epub 2020 May 27.

Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA, USA. Electronic address:

India's cervical cancer screening was launched in 2016 and we evaluated baseline facility readiness using nationally representative data from the 2012-13 District Level Household and Facility Survey on 4 tiers of the public health care system - 18,367 sub-health centres (SHC's), 8540 primary health centres (PHC's), 4810 community health centres and 1540 district/sub-divisional hospitals. To evaluate facility readiness we used the Improving Data for Decision Making in Global Cervical Cancer Programmes toolkit on six domains - potential staffing, infrastructure, equipment and supplies, infection prevention, medicines and laboratory testing, and data management. Composite scores were created by summing responses within domains, standardizing scores across domains at each facility level, and averaging across districts/states. Read More

Global Health Academy and Usher Institute, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK.

Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women globally, with approximately 580,000 new diagnoses in 2018. Approximately, 90% of deaths from this disease occur in low- and middle-income countries, especially in areas of high HIV prevalence, and largely due to limited prevention and screening opportunities and scarce treatment options. In this overview, we describe the opportunities and challenges faced in many low- and middle-income countries in delivery of cervical cancer detection, treatment and complete pathways of care.

The impact of scaling up cervical cancer screening and treatment services among women living with HIV in Kenya: a modelling study.

BMJ Glob Health 2020 29;5(3):e001886. Epub 2020 Mar 29.

Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London, London, UK.

Introduction: We aimed to quantify health outcomes and programmatic implications of scaling up cervical cancer (CC) screening and treatment options for women living with HIV in care aged 18-65 in Kenya.

Methods: Mathematical model comparing from 2020 to 2040: (1) visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and cryotherapy (Cryo); (2) VIA and Cryo or loop excision electrical procedure (LEEP), as indicated; (3) human papillomavirus (HPV)-DNA testing and Cryo or LEEP; and (4) enhanced screening technologies (either same-day HPV-DNA testing or digitally enhanced VIA) and Cryo or LEEP. Outcomes measured were annual number of CC cases, deaths, screening and treatment interventions, and engaged in care (numbers screened, treated and cured) and five yearly age-standardised incidence.

Management of Early-Stage Esophageal Adenocarcinoma by Endoscopic Spray Cryotherapy in the Setting of Portal Hypertension With Varices.

ACG Case Rep J 2020 Jan 20;7(1):e00309. Epub 2020 Jan 20.

University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

The use of endoscopic spray cryotherapy to manage pathological conditions of the esophagus has become increasingly common. This mucosal ablation technique is believed to carry a lower risk of bleeding than other modalities. A 71-year-old woman and a 64-year-old man with portal hypertension and varices were diagnosed with invasive esophageal adenocarcinoma during routine variceal surveillance. Read More

Keloids: A Review of Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2020 Feb 1;13(2):33-43. Epub 2020 Feb 1.

Dr. Betarbet is with the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia and the Division of Plastic Surgery at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.

Keloids are abnormal scars that cause significant emotional and physical distress in patients when inadequately treated. Keloid formation is theorized to occur as a result of an imbalance between an increased synthesis of collagen and extracellular matrix and decreased degradation of these products. Inflammatory mediators- namely, transforming growth factor beta-have been proposed to influence the dysregulation of collagen remodeling in the scar healing process. Read More

Cryoablation used in fertility-sparing treatment for early endometrial cancer: A pig model experiment using a new designed balloon cryoprobe.

Cryobiology 2020 Apr 16. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

Department of Gynecologic Oncology, The International Peace Maternity and Child Health Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, 200030, China; Shanghai Municipal Key Clinical Specialty of Gynecologic Oncology, Shanghai, 200030, China; Shanghai Key Laboratory of Embryo Original Diseases Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, 200030, China. Electronic address:

Young patients with early endometrial cancer have a strong desire to retain reproductive function, which require us to develop a therapeutic method that can not only assure the complete resection of tumor but also retain the uterine integrity. In the present study, we proposed a fertility-sparing surgery option that combined hysteroscopic resection with cryoablation to achieve this goal. To verify the safety and effectiveness of cryoablation for local uterine wall, we designed the experiment in pig model using a novel cryoablation balloon probe. Read More
