Cryotherapy for nodal metastasis in NSCLC with acquired resistance to immunotherapy.

J Immunother Cancer 2018 Dec 12;6(1):147. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Division of Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Yale School of Medicine, 330 Cedar Street, New Haven, CT, 06510, USA.

Novel approaches with checkpoint inhibitors in immunotherapy continue to be essential in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the low rate of primary response and the development of acquired resistance during the immunotherapy limit their long-term effectiveness. The underlying cause of acquired resistance is poorly understood; potential management strategies for patients with acquired resistance are even less clear. Read More

Adjuvant MRI-guided percutaneous cryoablation treatment for aneurysmal bone cyst.

Skeletal Radiol 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 601 North Caroline Street, Baltimore, MD, 21287, USA.

Aneurysmal bone cysts are benign, expansile, lytic bone lesions that behave in a locally aggressive manner. Although radiography and computed tomography (CT) can detect the lesion, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is ideal for the demonstration of characteristic fluid-fluid levels, extent, and margins. Treatment typically consists of open surgical curettage with the addition of local adjuvants and bone grafting. Read More

A new perspective in oculoplastic surgical management of symptomatic distichiasis in lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome.

Orbit 2018 Dec 5:1-4. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

a Department of Ophthalmology , University Hospital Nottingham NHS Trust , Nottingham , UK.

Lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome (LDS) is an autosomal dominant condition associated with FOXC2 mutations. Patients with distichiasis are mostly symptomatic, and efforts to deal with their ocular complaints comprise of electrolysis, cryotherapy and a variety of surgical techniques. We describe an enhanced surgical technique for a case of symptomatic distichiasis of the right eye with scarred, irregular eyelid margins secondary to initial cryotherapy, whereby the distorted tarsus was excised to remove the aberrant hair follicles, the levator palpebrae superioris was released to extend the upper lid and prevent lagophthalmos and a mucous membrane graft was used to cover the exposed portion of the tarsal plate.

Focal Salvage Treatment of Radiorecurrent Prostate Cancer: A Narrative Review of Current Strategies and Future Perspectives.

Cancers (Basel) 2018 Dec 3;10(12). Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Radiotherapy, University Medical Center Utrecht, Heidelberglaan 100, 3584 CX Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Over the last decades, primary prostate cancer radiotherapy saw improving developments, such as more conformal dose administration and hypofractionated treatment regimens. Still, prostate cancer recurrences after whole-gland radiotherapy remain common, especially in patients with intermediate- to high-risk disease. The vast majority of these patients are treated palliatively with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), which exposes them to harmful side-effects and is only effective for a limited amount of time.

The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of cold water immersion (CWI) after an intermittent test on the recovery kinetic of physical performance, muscle damage and perceived muscle soreness in professionals soccer players. In a randomized design, eight soccer players completed the Loughborough Intermittent Shuttle Test followed by 10 min of either CWI (10C°) or thermoneutral water immersion (TWI) (28C°). Physical performance (Squat jump: SJ, countermovement jump: CMJ, maximal voluntary contraction: MVC, and 20 m sprint: SP), muscle damage parameter (creatine kinase: CK) and perceived muscle soreness were assessed at baseline, 0 h, 24 h, 48 h and 72 h after the intermittent test.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Nov;17(11):1241-1243

Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.1,2 There are different treatment modalities for non-melanoma skin cancer, that include surgical excision, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, electrodessication and curettage, photodynamic therapy, and topical chemotherapy. Intralesional injection with 5-fluorouracil is a treatment modality that is not used often, perhaps due to not much research available to its effectiveness or established treatment recommendations.

Cryotherapy in the management of premalignant and malignant conditions of the esophagus.

World J Gastroenterol 2018 Nov;24(43):4862-4869

Department of Gastroenterology, Digestive Disease Surgery Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH 44195, United States.

Endoscopic cryotherapy is a relatively new thermal ablative modality used for the treatment of neoplastic lesions of the esophagus. It relies on cycles of rapid cooling and thawing to induce tissue destruction with a cryogen (liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide) leading to intra and extra-cellular damage. Surgical treatment was once considered the standard therapeutic intervention for neoplastic diseases of the esophagus and is associated with considerable rates of morbidity and mortality. Read More

Barriers to access for cervical precancer care in low-resource settings go beyond cost. Gas-based cryotherapy has emerged as the standard treatment in these areas, but there are barriers to this technology that have necessitated the development and implementation of affordable and portable alternatives.

Accurate diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer is essential in identifying patients who should be offered treatment with curative intent. Modifications to the Gleason grading system in recent years show that accurate grading and reporting at needle biopsy can improve identification of clinically significant prostate cancers. Extracapsular extension of prostate cancer has been demonstrated to be an adverse prognostic factor with greater risk of metastatic spread than organ-confined disease. Read More
